10 Colours That Look Great On Brown Skin As Inspired By Lupita Nyong'o

lupita color inspiration
As the “United Colours of Lupita” graphic proves, every colour in the rainbow looks good on Lupita Nyong’o. Her 'hue-tiful' looks have won fans all over the world, but they’re especially thrilling for black women like me.

Bold and Blue

Glimmering Gold: We all know gold is glamorous and regal, but Lupita proves it can also be sexy. Throw on leopard accessories and a red lip and you’re good to go.

Typically seen as boring, gray is anything but when jazzed up with silver and cobalt blue accessories.

Green can work for every event on your agenda this Spring. Wear emerald green with flecks of yellow for the office, and bright jade green for a night on the town.

Black skin is naturally radiant but orange picks up our golden undertones and complements a sun-kissed tan.

One of the biggest Spring trends, soft pastel colours look just as beautiful against brown skin as brights do.

Red is the universal colour for fire, passion and sex appeal. Go for the bold in head-to-toe red or add some sex appeal with leopard accessories.

The colour that resembles tropical beaches is perfect for Springtime. Turquoise is a great addition to your wardrobe, whether we’re talking jewelry, gowns, blouses, dresses or even eyeshadow.

Thanks to the sharp contrast, white flatters brown skin like no other. It’s the perfect summer colour for everything from gowns to crop tops.

Don’t be afraid to shine bright in yellow gowns and tops that give your skin a natural glow.

Plastic Transformation of Celebs Over The Years.....Before And After Photos

Toni Braxton: Like her sister Tamar, Toni also got a few minor adjustments on her face. She admits to a nose job and slight face lift, but says she doesn’t plan on taking it too far. Hopefully, that means she’s done.

Nicki Minaj: The rapper, who many say are just as fake as Lil’ Kim, has gotten numerous surgeries since earning some cash and fame. We know she’s gotten surgery on her butt, boobs and maybe her face, but we hope she doesn’t go any further.

Lil'Kim: . We don’t even want to think about how many surgeries she has at this point, but she’s becoming unrecognizable.

Tamar Braxton is not ashamed of her affinity to plastic surgery and talked about her nose job in countless interviews, but the “Love And War” singer looked cuter *before* the knife.

Don’t you remember when Kim first came on the scene as the sexy Armenian girl? Well, after a few nose surgeries and some botox, Kim’s Armenian features are harder to see.

Fans fell in love with Dawn Richard when she first burst onto the scene as a “Danity Kane” member. But, a few bloggers and the same fans on Twitter and Instagram called her out on the slimmer nose they saw in a series of photos she posted from a shoot.

Jada Pinkett Smith always had a slim figure, but as she got older, we noticed how high her cheekbones got.

Kelly Rowland: Both Kelly and Michelle were known in “Destiny’s Child” for their slimmer figures. After breaking free from the group, Kelly got a boob job and she’s said she has no regrets about about her new C-cup chest.

Patti Labelle: Yep, even Ms. Patti went under the knife! The singer openly admits to her nose job.

The iconic singer and actress is a Jackson, and we all know the Jacksons’ affinity to plastic surgery. Janet has gotten more than one adjustment on her face and body.

The fifth child of the Jackson family has also gotten several facial adjustments. We could barely recognize this picture of La Toya from 1981 without her nose job and numerous face lifts.

Amerie: We can’t help but notice that the singer has been rocking a different kind of look. She’s sporting a new short ‘do, but also a skinnier nose.

The “Hustle & Flow” actress has always been a sexy actress, but she did admit to getting breast implants for a curvier shape.

Ok we know Ciara is a grown mamma-to-be now, but even before she was expecting her chest magically got much bigger than it was in her “Goodies” days.

Wendy is known to embrace the less, ahem, natural side of fame. Her love of wigs is well known known, her nose has changed shape and she’s also pretty vocal about her her liposuction and tummy tucks

The “Two Can Play That Game” actress has always been the sexy woman next door to us, but whatever she’s doing to her face these days is actually making her look strange. Leave it alone!

The iconic supermodel advocated heavily for young girls to accept themselves. But, Tyra may have gotten a slight nose job for a little confidence boost.

We all know Beyonce is the Queen, but Mama Knowles is perched as well! Ms. Tina shares the spotlight with her daughter, so it would only be natural to get a little face lift to keep things, er, perky? no?

The “Glee” star recently posted this pic of her and fiance Big Sean on the beach and had many of her fans calling her out for (presumably) having a boob job. We’re just wondering when she had time to recover? Dang, girl.

Cruel thugs glue RAZOR BLADES all over children's playground injuring toddler

A two-year-old boy was injured after cruel vandals glued RAZOR BLADES all over a children's playground.
The toddler was playing with his dad at Millennium Park in Illinois when he suffered cuts from the blades which had been hidden on slides, climbing equipment and even on the ground.
Father Ty Langley was horrified at the cruel prank and told US channel KWQC: "It's something I can look out for now, if I'm ever here.
"We just kind of think about them swinging on the swing set or, you know, climbing the monkey bars. Don't really think about razor blades."
Cruel thugs: Blades were glued all over the park

Following the incident, Ty contacted East Moline police who disturbingly found a dozen blades littered across the playground.
Lieutenant Brian Foltz - a 19-year police veteran - admitted he had never seen anything like it.
He said: "I've seen a lot of things, but not razor blades glued to equipment at a park."

Fellow blogger, 'Newbie', who attended the show was well impressed, see her review in her own words:

"The first show I attended of the evening was from Nigerian Designer Nonye Lumm of Nonye Lumm Couture. The first thing you noticed immediately was the pulsating vibrancy of African High Life music. Then that’s when the show came alive with traditional fabrics added to the couture designs that made these designs all the more exciting. What made the collection diverse and interesting was the variety. Designs varying from fun cocktail dresses to billowing gowns all with traditional aspects with lace and ruflfles found in most African designs. The use of traditional beading was implemented in everything from accentuating the gowns itself to intricate head dresses."

Below are some of her unique designs:
