Well, the unofficial end of Summer has come and gone and while Labor Day 2020 differed greatly from past Labor Day weekends, it wasn’t all bad. I don’t know about you but I definitely noticed a difference in the way that the world celebrated this year, thanks to “the Rona.” Yeah, there were parties, cookouts, and PRIDE festivities (in Atlanta) but the masses didn’t pop-out and do the most per usual. However, there were those who popped out and served vibes.
On of the people who popped style this Labor Day weekend was actress Raven Goodwin. While Raven earned the title of curvy fashionista years ago, she has been laying low and adjusting to “the hood,” motherhood that is. You would think that a first-time mother only five months in would be too overwhelmed with breastfeeding and changing diapers to keep it cute. Well, not this mommiana; being Riley Rosa Bell’s mommy has clearly energized Raven.
For those of you who don’t know Raven, I guess you’re not a fan of great TV because little sis has been blessing the screen and spreading black girl magic since she was 9 years old. Raven has been a part of the cast of hit series such as Malcolm In The Middle, Everybody Hates Chris, Glee, and Being Mary Jane as well as TV movies like The Clark Sisters: First Ladies Of Gospel. So yeah, sis is out here working working and she has a stack of receipts to prove it, I guess the question is where have you been and what have you been watching if you aren’t familiar with Raven’s work.
Check out 6 times the plus size actress and soul singer slayed her maternity fashion.
1. Bodycon Beauty
Orange is one of my favorite colors, it is the perfect meld of the happiness that yellow represents and the energy of red. Orange is brilliant, bold, and badass especially when worn by a highly melanated queen like Raven. She literally bodied this bodycon from Rebdolls and pairing it with orange shoes from ASOS created a monochrome slay for the curvy gods and goddesses.
2. Fupa Fab
At first glance, its the booty for me. However, the total package is lit; confidence, style, and joy are all on full display.
3. Black On Black
Raven definitely shows up for plus-size women and girls who aspire to be actresses, for black women and girls, and for young mothers in pursuit of it all.
4. Denim Edition
There is nothing more necessary than a beautiful and brilliant black mother who understands her worth and is willing to show up.
5. Melanin Mom
So yeah, Raven is both aspirational and inspirational for women and girls who look like her and dream big.
6. Green Queen
Oh and fellas, don’t go sliding in her DM’s because Raven has a man to match her fly. There’s a ring on that finger!
