    Azede Jean Pierre is a Haitian designer and her dresses are poppin’. Not feelin the highlights on Michelle but I still love me some Michelle no matter what. Git it Ma.

    Really dislike the highlights. She’s not a role model for me. She’s trying to “lighten” herself like most dark skinned black women. The highlights do not flatter her skin tone. And regarding the photoshopping—they have to photoshop her and overstyle her to death because she’s not the prettiest woman in real life
