COVETED LOOK OF THE WEEK: TIFFANY BENDER

NAME: TIFFANY BENDER
AGE: 22
LOCATION: NEW YORK
I am currently a Project Manager for Miss Black USA, coordinating the 2013 Miss Black New York | Miss Black New Jersey Scholarship Pageant. I received my undergraduate degree in Communication and Rhetoric from The College of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University. I stayed to pursue my masters in Television Radio and Film from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. My career aspirations include hosting a nationally syndicated talk show and continuing to grow my non profit organization Y.U.N.G. Harlem
1. Describe your personal style.
My personal style is a combination of sex pot and sophistication, if that makes sense at all. I love my hour glass shape so I try my best to put together pieces that compliment it, not hide or frump it.
2. What inspires your everyday look?
I really don’t have an everyday look. One I may be in a Badgley Mischka gown and another in my favorite Black Halo “Jackie-O” dress. Most days however I’m in a baseball cap, distressed denim jeans, and platforms. I will say for sure the weather has a major impact on how much thought I put into the outfit. Believe it or not, I put way more effort into my bad weather outfits than when it’s nice out — why I am a weirdo and well aware.
3. Do you follow trends or are you classic?
I infuse trends into my personal style. I can never go full swing with an entire look –I wouldn’t feel comfortable. Like the whole Cassie shaved head, too far, too fast. I couldn’t even get into the pointy nail bit — but I’m loving how ombre hair and pointy heels are making a comeback. I could get with that.
4. Where do you look to for style inspiration? (Family, Friends, Celebrity, Editorials, Blogs)
My mom is a style GOD. Enough said. If there’s fur or sparkles, she’s on it — love that lady.
5. What do you feel defines great style for women? Well tailored garments? A great shoe or statement piece?
A woman should always have a “get me the job” pencil skirt and “when he sees me” dress. My closet is full of them! lol.
Tiffany definitely seems like a woman that loves glitz and glam! She is a stylish entrepreneur with a really dope non profit organization! Make sure you check out the Y.U.N.G. Harlem website G Y.U.N.G. Harlemand support the cause!
