Kelis: The Transformation Queen

Kelis is releasing an album this summer and doing the usual press tour to spread the word. She even made time to stop by MTV and example/justify her fashion through the years. Some of the looks even she had to laugh at but still managed to make a great point, you will never have regrets if you wear what feels good at the time. And if skin tight pink spandex catsuits with liberty spike head piece holding on rat tail that reaches your ankles feels good, bitch do…

Safety Pins: For the quirky pretty girl

One of the summer looks that seems to have everyone all excited is the glammed out kente rockabilly design. The best designs on a everyday wear level that I found has been from designer, Maya Amina Lake. Her line is called Boxing Kitten. Not only does she use her prints for the every day look, but she even has celebs like Alicia Keys, the Knowles sisters, Estelle, Jack Davey, Goapele…

Tattoo of the week: Feature, The Deacon

About a month ago, we asked people to submit photos of their tattoos for us to feature once a week on afropunk.com. Many brave submissions came forward for their chance to have some face time on the site, thus reminding us that tattoo ink is such a nice touch to brown skin. With the collected submissions, each week we will feature the best and/or most interesting tattoo that we think you may like to see with a little information about the person featured. And it's not…
