The Door by Ava DuVernay & Miu Miu & My Guest Post is up

Remember that guest post I told you guys about over here Wow . The one I was writing about the Weave Vs Natural debate. Well it's up on Beauty Pulse London. Check it out here Weave Vs Natural and let me know - Weave versus Natural Hair? What is your opinion?

I also came across this absolutely beautiful short film and I wanted to share. The Door, by Ava DuVernay, is the the fifth Miu Miu Women’s Tale, and is a celebration of the transformative power of feminine bonds, and a symbolic story of life change. 

Starring the beautiful Gabrielle Union, Alfre Woodard, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Adepero Oduye and singer-songwriter Goapele. The film shows our heroine Gabrielle Union who initially is shrouded in an oblique sadness.  “In the film, characters arrive at the door of a friend in need, bringing something of themselves and eventually, we witness our heroine ready to walk through the door on her own" 

I love everything about this short film. As a woman I can completely emphathise with her pain. It highlights the beauty of friendship and sisterhood, and made me so thankful for such women in my life. I think it's visually stunning, completely emotive as there is absolutely no dialogue and as for the clothes, well it's Miu Miu... One word beautiful!
