**Never mind Disney’s Princess Tiana [all that suffering; all that –‘wishing-upon-a-star’ –just so she could open a restaurant –please! Why couldn’t she be rich and content? Why couldn’t her parents give her money to open the d*** restaurant [I found it overwhelmingly, stereotypically -wanting on all levels]. Surly Disney’s aware that there are some seriously successful black folks in this world...please! Anyway, step forward Sokhna Ndour and Autumn Whitaker –the daughters of uber successful parents –and ‘belles’ of the ultra-chic, ultra presigious -Paris' Annual Crillon Ball [founded by uber PR wizard - Ophelie Renouard]. Strictly by invitation [only], -Paris' Annual Crillon Ball is a celebration of the daughters of the worlds most powerfully connected; most successful; movers and shakers of chichi society and happens annually to present these [blessed] debs to society!
**I predict good things for Sokhna Ndour and Autumn Whitaker [future style icons on the make] –and wish them all the love in the world…x
