Kerry Washington received major love today from the Harvard community. The ‘Scandal’ beauty was celebrated in Cambridge Thursday as Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals’ Woman of the Year honoree.

The nation’s oldest collegiate theatrical organization says it named Washington as Woman of the Year because she’s the first black woman to headline a network TV drama since 1974, according to the Associated Press. Washington set our TV’s ablaze starring as Olivia Pope on the hit show “Scandal,” which debuted in ABC in 2012.

The 38-year old actress has earned Golden Globe, Emmy and Screen Actors Guild nominations for the role.

Our beloved Comedian Amy Poehler won the prestigious Hasty Pudding last year. Others who have been honored include Meryl Streep, Katharine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor.

Urban Decay and Gwen Stefani Set for a Spring Collection Launch

Published by:

Urban Decay announces the second phase of their collaboration with singer and fashion entrepreneur Gwen Stefani, set to launch this spring.

According to Urban Decay, this limited-edition collection—the brand’s first-ever celebrity designer collaboration—was a true partnership with Stefani, who worked closely with Urban Decay, guiding every detail of the collection, from the shades to the packaging. Urban Decay Chief Creative Officer and Founding Partner Wende Zomnir carefully crafted each product with Stefani, creating the exact shades Stefani always wished she had in her personal makeup collection.

The collaboration kicked off in late 2015 with the release of the UD | Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette. Stefani worked with Urban Decay to design and develop her ultimate eyeshadow collection, which features her 15 essential shades in a luxe case. Now, Urban Decay introduces the rest of the UD | Gwen Stefani collection, launching this spring.

Since Stefani is known for her iconic lip looks, Zomnir knew the collection wouldn’t be complete without lipstick. Stefani worked with Urban Decay to develop her perfect colors and ideal textures, and together they created her eight must-have lipstick shades. Every one features UD’s proprietary Pigment Infusion System™—for a super-creamy texture, rich payout and superior color dispersion, added the company.

To complement the UD | Gwen Stefani Lipstick shades, the collection includes six coordinating shades of 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil. This waterproof formula not only defines lips, but also primes to help lip color last longer.

Urban Decay also worked with Stefani to create a palette that contained all her essentials for glowing, contoured skin. The UD | Gwen Stefani Blush Palette features six versatile shades of blush, bronzer and highlighter—all in UD’s Afterglow 8-Hour formula.

Finally, the limited-edition UD | Gwen Stefani Brow Box, a product the singer was especially passionate about, holds two versatile brow powder shades, setting wax, mini tweezers, two mini angled brushes and two mirrors (one magnifying and one regular).

The UD | Gwen Stefani spring collection will be available through Sephora, Ulta Beauty and Macy’s on January 29, 2016.

Gabrielle Union Is The New Face for Covet Fashion App

Published by:

screen322x572

Mobile styling app Covet Fashion has tapped Gabrielle Union as their newest host. For the next thirty days, the 43-year-old Being Mary Jane actress will act as the app’s featured star. During that time, users will have access to Gabrielle’s beauty tips and personal fashions, as well as a candid look inside her world, behind the scenes.

Gabrielle is one of only two hosts ever for Covet Fashion. Emma Roberts helped launch the app last month. Unlike other styling apps that highlight a single celebrity for their lifetime, Covet Fashion features a different host every month in an attempt to appeal to a larger and more diverse audience.

Gabrielle was chosen because she is a “style icon who is driven, intelligent and an inspiring role model who motivates women with both her forward-thinking and her chic style,” according to Blair Ethington, SVP for the app.

“I am absolutely thrilled to partner with Covet because it’s pioneering a new way to engage with my fans and share my passion for style while also giving them a glimpse into my very busy life,” said Union.

The Covet Fashion app can be download via Google Play and the App Store.

Laverne Cox+NAACP Image Awards Luncheon+PopSourceTV

The 47th Annual NAACP Image Awards Luncheon was held today at the Beverly Hills Hilton. The A-list affair was a posh event that seemed more like a “Who’s who in Hollywood.”  The red-carpet was flanked with gorgeous-ness and glamour!

We were glad to host at the event and gather insight from those who stopped by PopSource TV to chat. One of our favorites from the red carpet was non-other than one of People Magazines’ Most Beautiful celebrities, Laverne Cox. “A sight to behold,” as one onlooker described her. The OITNB star looked pretty in pink. Her look was one of the best of the day. Glam Odyssey!

It was recently announced that Cox is set to Play Dr. Frank-N-Furter in The Rocky Horror Picture Show TV Remake.

Other attendees included most of the “Black-ish” cast including Anthony Anderson, Yara Shahid and Marcus Scribner. Among the nominees in attendance were Tyrese, Skai Jackson, Naturi Naughton and Loretta Devine.

“The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination,” according to the organization.

Kathleen Bradley Celebrates Birthday in Style

Published by:

PopSource(7)

Kathleen Bradley was all smiles and the center of attention at her huge birthday bash held at the iconic Maverick’s Flat in Los Angeles Friday.

Bradley, who was a “Barker Beauty” from 1990-2000 is very iconic in the African-American Community. As evidence, her posh affair was filled with entertainment industry veterans who came out to congratulate the former model and actress.

Bradley was the first permanent African-American model on the “Price is Right”, which is America’s number-one-rated TV game show. Though she is a celebrated author, and speaker, most people will always remember her as the 5’9″ leggy beauty who graced the television screens of millions of Americans on a daily basis.

We were glad to be on hand to celebrate with Bradley, who wanted to personally greet and take photographs with each one of her guests. At one time Bradley was swarmed by a group of admirers on the carpet and without hesitation, the showbiz veteran said “Get in here, let’s take a picture – the more men the better” which made everyone in the adorning crowd burst into laughter.

In an exclusive interview with PopSource TV, Bradley says she hopes, “Her legacy will be that she was a giver, and a good mom and grandma.”
