Eva Marcille, Chanel Iman, Naomi Campbell & Nas Rocking Hip African-Inspired Designs

As I posted up on Tumblr (culturaltoast.tumblr.com) recently Eva Marcille, Chanel Iman, Naomi Campbell, and Nas were photographed rocking hip African-inspired designs on and off the red carpet. So much inspiration can be drawn upon how these celebrities wore their African-inspired fashion looks.

Eva Marcille attended LaLa Anthony’s birthday brunch in a Marni for H&M printed A-line skirt. If you can recall I did a post on this hot designer-collaboration for H&M much earlier. I love how Eva put her signature style funk on the skirt from the accessories to the make-up!


Not to be outdone but E! News reporter & Fashion Police correspondent Giuliana Ranic also wore a piece from Marni for H&M recently. As you can see Giuliana didn’t add much to the dress so it can be her statement piece.

Which of the two Marni for H&M looks did you prefer – Eva or Giuliana?

Chanel Iman (with Gabrielle Union) was seen in a high-waisted Burberry Prosrum skirt. Revisit my post on Burberry Prorsum’s African-inspired collection here.

Solange Knowles also embraces wax print fashion as she did in her April 2012 Complex magazine photo shoot. Both looks are taken from Burberry Prorsum Resort 2012 collection. 

Which Burberry Prorsum Resort 2012 look do you prefer – Solange or Chanel?

For her W Magazine July 2012 photo session, Naomi Campbell was seen in a African-inspired suit!

Nas wore a hip African-inspired ankara shirt by Woolrich Woolen Mills on the June/July 2012 cover of Complex magazine. The shirt is taken from the Summer 2012 collection which you can purchase here! Props to June Ambrose for hooking up Nas with some tasteful Africani-inspired fashion.

Robin Roberts Wears Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2012 Cashmere Scarf

Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts was spotted outside ABC Studios in Times Square wearing a Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2012 wax print cashmere scarf. According to Burberry.com, Robin’s scarf retails for -drumrolls please- $1,095.00. It comes as no surprise that CulturalToast.com embraces African wax print fashion. I absolutely love it! If you’re following CulturalToast.com’s Tumblr page, there’s plenty more African wax print looks to drool over. The print of Robin’s scarf is very similar to a dress actress Kate Bosworth wore this past October.


Robin’s scarf as you can see is a variation of a skirt seen on the runway during London Fashion Week Spring 2012 and the print was also used as dress as seen on Kate Bosworth. Burberry’s online boutique has a handful of scarves similar to Robin’s which can check out here. I’m definitely loving that appreciation for wax print fashion.

Lady Gaga Tackles Cultural Pulse in Burberry Prorsum Ankara Jacket

Lady Gaga, one  of pop music’s biggest superstar, was spotted out and about in a Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2012 Ankara jacket in London. We love her Christian Louboutin  Daffodil suede purple heels! CulturalToast.com always appreciates seeing how celebrities put their own personal funk on African fashion fabric straight from the runway.

LADY GAGA IN ANKARA

Lady Gaga however is the not the first celebrity to seen wearing an “African-inspired” design from Burberry Prorsum. Gaga joins the ranks of Solange, Kate Bosworth and Anna Wintour who’s obsessed with African fashion fabric-inspired Burberry designs on and off the red carpet. As you can tell Gaga’s jacket print is the same pattern as Kate Bosworth’s dress. Gotta love the globalization of African fashion? CulturalToast.com does NOT think it’s a fad but a lifestyle.

African Fashion Spotlight: Estelle’s Mimi Plange to Solange, Anna Wintour & Kate Bosworth in Burberry’s Ankara

The appreciation for African Fashion fever has never looked radiant as it has in the past few weeks! From Estelle’s red Mimi Plange arrival dress at the 2011 Black Girls Rock event in New York City to Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour wearing a Burberry Prorsum ankara trench coat at Paris Fashion Week, the spotlight on African fashion has once again intensified! Let’s take a look back on some of our favorite African fashion red carpet stunners…

Spotlight #1 – Estelle in Mimi Plange

When Estelle stepped out in this fire engine red satin ruffle Mimi Plange dress at the 2011 Black Girls Rock event, a collective round of applause was heard within the African fashion circuit. After all the dress was picked from the very collection that Vogue Editor at Large Andre Leon Talley physically co-signed when it was first unveiled during New York Fashion Week. Mimi Plange’s a fab Ghanaian fashion designer who CulturalToast.com had the pleasure of meeting at her private NYFW show. Estelle looked simply divine in this Mimi Plange “Scarred Perfection” Fall 2011 dress!

Spotlight #2 – Anna Wintour in Burberry


The Queen of fashion wore a stunning ankara trench coat lifted from the much-talked about Burberry SS 2011 collection. Who would thought or imagine the words Anna Wintour and ankara in sentence? Burberry made it happened! Take notice the appreciation for African fashion has heated up the mainstream media and we predict it’ll be here long after the frenzy “shimmers” down.

Spotlight #3 – Solange Knowles in Burberry


The ever talented younger Knowles sibling has been consistent with wearing ankara and bold prints courtesy of Boxing Kitten and Opening Ceremony. So it comes as no surprise to see Solange in another exquiste Ankara creation (Burberry Prorsum Resort 2012 shoes) at the recent Burberry Body Event. We love Solange’s high-waisted knotted, ruched skirt! We can’t help but notice how Burberry Prorsum Resort 2012 chunky heels made another noteworthy appearance for its Spring 2012 London Fashion Week presentation as wedges!

Spotlight #4 – Kate Bosworth in Burberry


Also at the private Burberry Body bash hosted by Christopher Bailey was actress Kate Bosworth who wore a stunning ankara halter dress from the label’s Spring 2012 ready to wear collection. Do you prefer the runway look or Kate’s way?

Burberry Prorsum’s African-Inspired Spring/Summer 2012 Collection at London Fashion Week

Burberry Prorsum has delivered yet again on producing ankara for their newly release Resort 2012 collection during London Fashion Week. Many of their staple style items such as Burberry’s classic trench were presented. Last season for their Resort 2012 collection, Burberry used ankara! Burberry Prorsum’s creative director Christopher Bailey infused ankara/African prints onto parkas, dresses, high-waisted skirts, tops and jackets. Bailey also redesigned the classic Burberry trench coat using ankara. Pom pom hats, intricately designed clutches, and oversize handbags added quirkiness to the collection. See how Bailey designed a entire collection using ankara right here on CulturalToast.com…
