Both women keep their wardrobes full of excitement land freedom by being so distinctive. Smith and Adichie reveal that they are unapologetic, that they can express themselves without fear of commentary which is the beauty of being artists.
Zadie Smith, the British-Jamaican author sets up of style with her exotic confidence, vintage turbans, box braids, bold lips. She keeps it simple and always stays elegant. Smith says she does not “like to look vulnerable” because it does not “particularly interest” her.
Smith admitted said to T Magazine:"I did not mind dressing up for strangers,” her narrator speaks of in a passage Zadie reveals is, in fact, a characteristic of her own story, “but in our rooms, within our intimacy, I could not be a girl, nor could I be anybody’s baby, I could only be a female human.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, African novelist, and feminist speaker always shows off her Ankara prints, head wraps, bold afro and her natural beauty essence wherever she goes. She is now the new face of Boots No7 makeup.
Adichie said in a statement to Vogue UK that “I love makeup and its wonderful possibilities for temporary transformation. And I also love my face after I wash it all off” Her response shows how she enjoys a temporary transformation and the rawness of no makeup on her face.
As Adichie said in a personal essay about style: “I no longer pretend not to care about clothes. Because I do care. I love embroidery and texture. I love lace and full skirts and cinched waists. I love black, and I love colour. I love heels, and I love flats. I love exquisite detailing.”
#Chimamanda Adichie stands for how a woman can be taken seriously even with dressing up because dressing down to make the right impression is imprisoning. It does not allow a woman to be who she truly wants to be. A smart woman can also take pride in fashion.
The two have influenced the world to see that women also should be able to have their own “stand-alone voice” as do men and how fashion is political, it is empowering. #Feminism #Zadie Smith
