Alphanista Watch: Teyana Taylor
[Editor’s Note: We’re Still Watching Bonified “Alphanista” Status Not Confirmed] By Guest Blogger, Goldie
Dear Teyana Taylor,
I get it! You want to be comfortable in your skin and show your Billionaire Boys Club rep. However, you are a woman now. One with great boobs, nice shaped butt and abs one would kill for. So why do you dress like a boy?
Ladies, I’d like to dissect Teyana Taylor’s style. A product of Harlem and dancing, she definitely has displayed confidence and skill in her career. However, she isn’t getting the hype she deserves. She has a unique voice and approach to music. My only concern is she dresses like a boy. I know she’s probably saying, “This is me. I won’t conform to society’s views of what a young singer should look like.” Yet and still she is working in an industry that requires one to be liked by society because society buys your product, you!
Look at someone who SHOULD be her competition, Rihanna. Yes I know they are two different artists but if Teyana took her image seriously, they would be sharing record sales. Rihanna has been carefully crafted. She wears the hottest, funkiest, yet feminine gear to date. Even when Rihanna wears sneakers you can see the difference in how people accept it. They do not post her candids as much on blogs and they most certainly don’t have as many inquiries, curious about who makes her wardrobe pieces. Shouldn’t that let Teyana know something? To be accepted in the music industry one has to dress the part.
The hair, proud and big, can stay. But the jeans and sneakers with a flannel top simply will not do. We, the people can simply skip a few aisles down and see Day 26 for all that.
As soon as she donned a Herve Leger dress and heels there was more attention paid. Then when she recently styled her own shoot wearing sexy garb and “pumping gas” at a old run-down gas station she looked HOT! She has a great body and it was about time she showed that off.
Women need to dress like women and stop being “one of the boys”. It’s an age old tale, they treat you like a brother, without giving you a second look. Teyana, please! Trade those sweats for a mini skit and sneaks for heels. It will do you some good!
