GAL APPROVED – Stick Fly’s Zakiya Young Gets Red Carpet ReadyBy Delaina Dixon | December 13, 2011 | Entertainment, Lifestyle
The DivaGals are always up for a new challenge. So when we were approached to style one of the stars of Alicia Keys Presents Stick Fly for the official Broadway opening last Thursday, we didn’t hesitate one bit.
Zakiya Young, who understudies two of the lead female roles in the comical drama, wanted to show off her amazing 5’10 bodacious figure. Our choice? A ruched Faviana strapless dress that hugged her every curve. “I loved how it made me feel instantly ready for the carpet,” Zakiya declared. “It’s form-fitting, but classy and has amazing side detail that was so slimming.” Adding shapewear like Spanx’s Undie-tectable Panty made Zakiya’s waist look even more teeny-tiny.
Of course, Zakiya needed a little bling to set things off. We turned to Lia Sophia, slipping her into a leaf-shaped necklace we doubled into a choker and Lia’s sparkly Cubist Ring ($110), from the upcoming Summer 2012 collection. “Everybody complimented me on my jewelry,” Zakiya shares.
No red carpet look would be complete without hair and makeup. Angelo David Salon transformed Zakiya’s natural beauty to starlet stunning using a mix of colors from Urban Decay’s NAKED palette and single false lashes. “I sometimes forget that regular makeup and camera makeup are different,” Zakiya shared. “Once I saw the final product and how great it looked on film, I knew it was just perfect for the night.”
