Can’t Hide Our Love for Hidden Figures

hiddenfigures1

This week we are crushing hard on Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae.  While everyone else can’t stop talking about the envelope shuffle over La La Land and Moonlight, I’m still focusing on how incredible it is that Hidden Figures was nominated for three academy awards: Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress, and Adapted Screenplay!

As bummed as I am to find out that the movie did not happen to win in any of these categories, I’m more than ecstatic that a film like this was nominated in so many categories and has already snagged a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast and multiple NAACP Image Awards just to name a few.

With recent controversy over the years regarding “Oscar’s so white”, it’s refreshing to see a nomination of a movie that not just has a diverse, mostly Black cast, but also has a cast that is most significantly female.

Coincidentally, February is Black History Month, and March is Women’s History Month. All of this attention could not have come at a more perfect time!
The celebration of diversity and being proud of your culture and ethnicity is exactly what Fashionistas For You is all about. You can be any race, shape, size, height, or ethnicity, and still be crazy intelligent, as well as crazy beautiful. We love that Hidden FIgures embodies that part of our mission statement and recommend that you take the time to watch the movie for the first time (or 10th time, like us)!
