I had a chance to catch up with the latest cast members of a new spin-off reality show coming to the Style Network called Big Rich Atlanta. I had the pleasure of asking Sharlinda Parker, daughter Kahdijiha Rowe & Sabrina Rowe a few fashion and beauty questions and it was such a delight to interview them. As you know the show debuts tomorrow night at 8pm on the Style Network. Check out what the ladies had to say! xoxo
What fashion designers do you heart and why?
Sabrina: I really like Nicole Miller, Zac Posen, Rachel Roy and Marc Jacobs because these designers collection have something for every occasion.The designers items are very edgy, sexy and sleek. Fashion is a visual communication for me.
Sharlinda: I like Tracy Resse because she is not afraid to play with patterns. I love bright color and bold statements as well.
Kahdijiha: My favorite custom designer is Rafael Cox. He is a great designer here in Atlanta and I really love his bold choice of colors and sleek lines. I like a timeless style with a sexy twist… My favorite places to shop are Jefferies and Intermix.
What beauty brands do you love? Any beauty tips/tricks you can share?
Sabrina: Giorgio Armani, Laura Mercier, NARS, and YSL. I have sensitive skin and I can only use the best. One of my beauty tricks would be to advise every girl to put a small slit in the top back seam of your spanx or bikini bottom to prevent muffin top
Sharlinda: I love MAC and YSL lipstick. Tinted moisturizer is my best kept secret because it gives you a smooth even tone. You don’t even need makeup and it keeps your skin fresh and protected. Another trick is to put cuticle oil around your cuticles to keep them moisturized.
Kahdijiha: I love NARS lip gloss, MAC, and Bobbi Brown. I love the color of Chanel lipsticks. My best beauty tip is LIPGLOSS & LASHES … That makes any average day fabulous!!!

Sabrina: My makeup artist is Aunjoli. My hair stylists are Gwen Gainer, Jon Minor, and Tylr Rosalee. My sister and I order our hair extensions from Teresa Terry, The Virgin Hair Lady. I have worked in the beauty industry for a very long time and I was really impressed with their work.

Sabrina: I respect the style so many women at this moment Kerry Washington, Rahael Zoe and Kimora Lee Simmons these ladies exudes style, sexy and fierce on many different levels.My No. 1 style muse right now is Michelle Obama. She makes fashion effortless and easy while being extremely fashionable.
Sharlinda:Michelle Obama is my favorite style icon because she is unpredictable when it comes to fashion. I really like to change my look and keep people guessing.
Kahdijiha: My favorite style icon is Pippa Middleton because she is so classic but sexy. She definitely knows how to own a room without even trying. My other style icon is Carrie Bradshaw. I like her because she is not afraid to break the rules.
Name one thing in your closet that you are totally obsessed with?
Sabrina: The one thing in my closet that I’m obsessed with these days is not quite in the closet. I’m TOTALLY obsessed with my Bond 9 collection. I’m a perfume CHICK! A girl has to always smell good I get giddy just thinking about it. All the scents are MY FAV….
