From the moment Dana Owens stepped on the scene, I’ve been in love with her style. From her power-to-the-people inspired head-gear, to her gorgeous red carpet looks–Queen Latifah is a confident style icon representing curvy girls in a major way.  For her birthday today, I thought “how cool would it be” to give you beauties a little advice straight from the Queen’s closet (or at least, what I think is in her closet). Check out 7 style tips according to Queen Latifah’s closet.
