Definitely one of my favorite photos of late. Don’t they all look like they’re in a band & she’s the lead singer?

I like that their looks and expressions reveal a hint of each person’s personality.

I think her hair is the best accessory of all.

This photo really shows the variety of styles that you might see at an Ethiopian wedding celebration. The older women on the left are wearing the more traditional dresses, while the other two women wear more modern, Westernized outfits. All of their outfits were custom-made by local Ethiopian dressmakers; the woman in the short dress had hers made at a clothier on 14th Street.

I love the pink color of the dress on the right…it reminds me of the cherry blossom petals, which have begun to shed and layer the sidewalks in a kind of Spring snow:

NY-based rapper Thelonious Kapps was at Howard with a youth education tour group called APEX. He had this great 80s-hip-hop look going on, a lot like the Retro Kids.
