Queen Latifah Style

Queen Latifah Palette

1. Know your color palette and work it!

The Queen knows what looks good on her in the color department and sticks to a similarly hued palette of warm colors like hot pink, turquoise and regal midnight blue (she is the Queen, after all). She is tres au currant as all these colors are very in this fall.

2. Play around with necklines

Queen Latifah Necklines
When you’ve got kickin’ curves like Latifah a fun way to show some skin can be playing around with your neckline. Queen Latifah kills it in a one shoulder, bejewelled halter and strapless!

3. Be you (everyone else is taken…)

Ms. Latifah always exudes confidence, whether she’s donning metallic stripes (while giving love to Carrie Underwood) at Super Bowl 2010, playing to the crowd at a BET Awadrs press conference or accepting her star in the walk of fame, this diva knows how to represent!

4. When in doubt, wear black…

…but be sure to kick it up a notch with some super stylin accessories like a sparkly cocktail ring, gold hoops or go kick it up a notch by throwing on an of-the-moment fur wrap.

5. A smile really is the best accessory

Queen Latifah Smiles
There is no question, Queen Latifah has one of the best smiles in the business. Her beautiful smile is the topper to a lady who is brimming with couture confidence! The best way to emulate this last component of the Queen’s killer look? It’s simple: brush and floss 2x a day and be sure to visit your dentist regularly!

At the end of the day, Latifah knows, truly knows, who she is and it shows! I mean, have you ever seen anyone who looks more at ease, more relaxed, more comfortable in their own skin? All the while maintaining flawless personal style? That kind of effortless execution is a true thing of beauty. No wonder they call her the Queen.

Queen Latifah is the perfect example of knowing what works for you and killing it! She is a beautiful woman, because she is confident in herself. By being comfortable in your own skin, you won’t be afraid to show off the things you love about yourself. If you don’t have that, you won’t reach your full fashion potential. Plus, you’ll miss out on the trends! Overall, size is no excuse to shy away from fashion. There is something for everyone.

Seen her from "Taxi". and the personality she has on that movie is very different from what I am seeing now. She may not be that sexy but with the clothes she's wearing, she totally knock us out!
