AFRICAN FASHION RULED WEARABLE ART

THE KNOWLES FAMILY IN FINE FEATHERS
Tiffany's feather theme was echoed by Tina Lawson and her daughter, Beyoncé Knowles. Tina wore a sensual black gown with a winged "sleeve," and Beyoncé wore a lion dress also festooned with golden feathers in lieu of a mane.

Mong them were Jesse Williams, Tyler Perry, Chloe X Halle, Anthony Anderson, Marsai Martin, Lena Waithe, Kendrick Sampson, Magic Johnson and wife Cookie, and Steve Harvey and his wife Marjorie.
THE "LION KING" REMAKE WITH BEYONCÉ
The cast for "The Lion King" is another veritable who-is-who of black talent with Donald Glover and Beyoncé giving voice to the two lead characters, Simba and Nala.
The inimitable James Earl Jones will reprise his role as Mufasa, and Chiwetel Ejiofor will appear as the villain Scar.

TIFFANY HADDISH OPENS UP ABOUT PAINFUL CHILDHOOD
Tiffany's mother was involved in a car accident when she was 8 years old, and the trauma altered her personality.
“When I was 8, about to be 9, she had a car accident and her head went through a windshield. By the grace of God she lived, but she had to learn how to walk, talk, eat, everything all over again,” she said.
Tiffany's mother became violent and verbally abusive, and would often punch her daughter.
“She couldn’t get all her words out, so she’d just punch me. Just full on. Because of her, I can take a punch like nobody’s business. Teachers would ask, ‘Why’s Tiffany’s lip busted?’ I didn’t say anything. As bad as she was to me, I still couldn’t help but love her.” she revealed.
Tiffany would often beg her mother to allow her to go live with her grandmother, but she would refuse, telling her "I'm your momma!"
Tiffany credits her grandmother's love and understanding with giving her the stability she needed to make a success of her life.
