Is This The “Emmy” My Book Has Been Waiting For?

thelastking3 (1)Okay, for so long, I’ve been saying that Lupita N’Yongo would make the perfect Emmy for my fantasy/romance novel The Last King. I still think she looks the way I imagine Emmy.

An "Emmy" kind of woman

Nonetheless, I have to say that internet beauty Yomilewa could give Lupita a run for her money!

I came across some pictures of this young lady on the Blackgirllonghair blog, and fell instantly in love with her hair and her style.

Here are some more pics of her I found. Emmy would totally rock some styles like this!









So much natural hair.

I can so imagine Emmy looking like her, but maybe just a tad been darker. Like total ebony. 🙂

    Actually, you are right about her skin tone. Emmy IS darker, like a Lupita complexion. But I loved this woman’s hair. I want hair like that someday. Working at it.
