We miss you Pepper Labeija
What has me thinking of Miss Pepper LaBeija, the ultimate mother of children of color, is this absolutely krazy blog entry by Clay Cane, titled Looka Like A. Clay's posted the frightening look-alike photos of some of the more interesting celebrities -- Brandy, one of the tennis Williams sisters, R. Kelly and Nicole Richtie, to name a few. This hilarious photo drama was inspired by a group of queens cutting up in a Chinese restaurant. Just go there and read it; you'll get it and love it!
But back for a moment to my Pepper Fever... For a look at some the remarkable girls, check out these dazzling photos from Sally's II.
