I’m so happy to see this new Essence September/October Fashion Issue cover with my friends!
If you haven’t been paying attention, Keke Palmer and namesake designer, Sergio Hudson, are consistently breaking the internet. Hudson, now officially her creative director is taking her career to heights, one look at a time.
This sort of designer-and-muse relationship is tradition in the fashion industry, yet this duo is doing it at their own pace – challenging the industry norm as we see it. From the met gala, to the usher concert; every look stirs up conversation showcasing Palmer in a dynamic new light and creating even more buzz to Hudson’s name. More inside….
“I feel like I was the most beautiful woman there. I knew that my hair was on point. I knew that my makeup was on point. I knew that my look was on point. And then Sergio being beside me made the whole thing that much better.” – Keke Palmer
In preparation for his NYFW show only weeks away, Palmer wears one of Hudson’s latest designs on the cover – joining an A-list class of clients including Kamala Harris, Michelle Obama, and Beyonce.
It’s no denying that these two are the perfect fit. That’s why they are our September/October Fashion Issue cover stars.
