Tai Beauchamp Wears Jewel By Lisa To Grammy Glam

The Cultural Look has never look fierce thanks in part to Tai Beauchamp’s Jewel By Lisa Autumn/Winter 2011 jeweled jacket. For her 2012 Grammy Glam hosting gig, Tai completed her look with Rubin Chapelle black low-cut halter jumper and gold hoop statement earrings. I think this look is completely fab!

African models Millen Magese and Ediomi Utuk wore this jacket for a photo session with Jewel By Lisa and Munaluchi Bride Magazine. Ediomi wore her JBL jacket with a Toriola Custom Designs* gold lace dress, a gold H&M necklace and L.A.M.B. shoes. Tanzanian model Millen wore her look for the Jewel By Lisa Winter/Autumn 2011 official print AD campaign. This is however not the first time Tai’s fashion statement has embraced African Fashion. She wore a Suno x Loeffler Randall Spring/Summer 2011 wedges last year at the 2nd Annual Diversity Affluence Brunch.

If you’re digging Tai’s style as much as I am now, you can follow her on Twitter: @TaiBeau for all her latest fashion happenings. *We love Tori at! As always in good parting, this is my reaction to Tai in a Jewel By Lisa design courtesy of Beyonce.

Cultural Presence: Catt Sadler’s Jewel by Lisa Obsession

The buzz on Jewel by Lisa heightens yet again thanks to E News correspondent Catt Sadler (@IAmCattSadler) who wore three statement pieces from the Nigerian-run fashion label, a creative brainchild from Lisa Folawiyo. It’s great to see Hollywood embracing one of Nigeria’s top fashion designers!

Nigerian model and Studio Xtra 53 host Eku Edewor (@Eku_G_Edewor) was actually the first celebrity to wear the butterfly print dress from the Fall 2011 collection at Arise Magazine Fashion Week in Lagos, Nigeria. We love the dress in lime green and yellow! Eku accessorized her look with grey oxfords and her black YSL muse bag. Interestingly so the butterfly print dress popped up again in the new JBL Fall 2012 collection’s print campaign which featured by Tanzanian model Millen Magese (@ladivamillen).

Cultural Toast is excited to see what JBL statement piece Catt Sadler may chose to wear next!
