June Ambrose is finally getting the praise and attention she deserves. The stylist, who has worked with Diddy, Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige and others, has a cult following due to her spectacular fashion sense and colorful personality. Now, she can add designs (a turban and sunglasses line), a reality TV show, a website and numerous magazine features to her list of accomplishments.
Her latest cover is for the October 2011 issue of Avenue Insider. For the shoot, June wears a Jean Paul Gaultier sequin black head-to-toe look and Christian Louboutin black Daffodil pumps.
Inside, she talks about her accomplishments, her bright future and style philosophy:
“I always wanted to walk into a room and be the focus of it, that was just my shtick. I was going to use myself to get my foot in the door and make things happen. I wanted to take urban style and make it something cinematic and forward… A kind of high market approach. I bought in all these elements and designed all these pieces for this scene when nobody wanted to give Mariah Carey gowns.”
There’s no arguing that June is a trailblazer in merging the worlds of high fashion and hip hop. Read more here.
