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 CulturalToast.com! As always in good parting, this is my reaction to Tai in a Jewel By Lisa design courtesy of Beyonce.
