I always was torn between Yaya and Eva the diva,but I loved that she didn’t want to change anything about herself. Congratulations!

You may have seen her before, though. After ANTM, she was in the movie Tron and The Kids Are Alright.Pretty much the “black chick” in both those movies.

Yaya is a model known from America’s Next Top Model (ANTM)… ANTM is a TV show where girls compete to win a contract with a top modeling agency.

Why would you comment on a post just to say you’ve never heard of someone? Does it mean that person is irrelevant? Or does it mean you just don’t know? It’s just easier to look them up on google/wikipedia instead of proclaiming the person isn’t someone you know of.

LOL. You just came in here to be mean, and to your chagrin no one else shares your sentiments. We’ve never heard of the women BGLH chooses to put up as Hairstyle Icons, and you aren’t there claming you’ve never heard of them. Go be a shrew on a gossip site. I’m sure your comments will go over better over there, where you belong.

Y’all couldn’t get a better picture. These pictures were taken far away, blurry and I cannot even see her hairstyle or the cornrows part. But I always liked her and she looks beautiful. Congrats girl!

I have always been a fan of Yaya, ever since she was ANTM. She seems like such a classy, down to earth lady, and is a fantastic actress and model. I have so much respect for celebrities that focus on their craft, rather than the limelight. Congrats to her and her hubby—she was a beautiful bride!

Doubt it, lol. She strikes me as the low‐key, very personal “her‐wedding‐pics‐will‐not‐see‐the‐light‐of‐day” a‐la Beyonce and Jay‐Z type. Those look like pics someone snuck off a camera phone.

I’m not really sure that those are cornrows. It looks like a part of the charm/headpiece that she appears to be wearing. None the less, Yaya is looking beautiful as usual. It’s nice to see that she continued to stay true to herself on her big day.

Yeah, sorry I found those pics too. Definitely not cornrows, but she’s natural and she put her hair up. Cool. I still remember Tyra fighting her about straightening her hair. Drama!
