My favorite movie of hers is BOOMERANG...
Here Eddy sports a strong look, in a red wool blazer with black leather trim, and black demi roll neck peeping through. This colour combo is a 90s classic and provides the instant power-glam factor. Rarely seen on men I for one think Eddy pulls this palette off flawlessly.
The supporting role of “Bony T” played by a very thin and young Chris Rock raises the style stakes. Here Chris sports some fabulous braces that holds up those baggy green and red edged denims around that skinny waist, with what else but of course, a black demi roll neck.
Martin Lawrence, David Alan Grier and Eddy hit the gym in true style. Afro-centric sweatshirt from Martin, while Eddy goes simple in a grey Howard varsity hoodie, David gets brave with some layering and slim fit grey t.
Lela Rochon enters as Eddies first love interest, a few sandwiches short of a picnic but the girl sure can accessorize.
Tisha Campbell plays the nosy bitter loud mouth neighbour but in her brief moment on the screen still manages to bring something to the table with a selection of interesting outerwear, knitwear and gold earrings.
Eartha Kitt plays the provocative Lady Eloise, proving the mature woman can still have game in an emerald green get up with matching head band.
Grace Jones up’s the glamour stakes with Strange’s risque crotchless pvc and transparent choices.
And of course the fabulous Halle Berry
AND NOW BACK TO A PROTHINSPO USUAL TOPIC... Among black girls, challenges of fighting obesity go beyond diet
Paris Woods is hardly a poster child for the obesity epidemic. Lining up dripping wet with kids on her swim team, she's a blend of girlish chunkiness and womanly curves.
In street clothes - roomy pink sweats or skimpy tank tops revealing broad, brown swimmers' shoulders - the teen blends in with her friends, a fresh-faced, robust-looking All-American girl.
That's the problem.
Like nearly one-third of American teens, Paris Woods is overweight. Her doctor worries her weight will creep up into the obesity range. One out of four black girls her age is obese.
The more than 11 million U.S. teens who are overweight or obese face an increased risk for diseases once confined to adults, like diabetes, artery damage and liver trouble. Those problems along with high blood pressure and high cholesterol are showing up increasingly in kids.
Paris' pediatrician urged her to take part in an intensive experiment. The goal? To see if a yearlong program of weekly sessions with a nutritionist, exercise trainer and doctor, all preaching major lifestyle changes, could keep the 14-year-old from becoming obese.
It's the kind of intensive help that the influential U.S. Preventive Services Task Force said last month can work for teens.
Through successes, setbacks and even a bout with swine flu, Paris tried sticking with it. Skipped sessions stretched the program from 12 months into 20, but she didn't quit.
Did it work? Stay tuned - her experience is a reflection of many families' struggles with obesity.
During Paris' endeavor:
Burger King introduced a 1,360-calorie triple Whopper sandwich; McDonald's profit climbed to $4.55 billion; and KFC introduced its Kentucky Grilled Chicken "for health-conscious customers." Torrid, a nationwide chain of clothes for plus-size teen girls, opened its 156th store, up from six in 2001. First lady Michelle Obama - who grew up a few miles from Paris Woods' Chicago home - made fighting childhood obesity her pet project. "We have a chance to change the fate of the next generation if we get on it," she said recently. The options in Paris' middle-class mostly black South Side neighborhood are limited to a bounty of fast food. Paris has a taste for fried chicken, bacon cheeseburgers and Snickers bars, and sometimes little willpower. Swimming helps her fight that. The sport has been a passion since she was a little girl.
Her parents, Dinah and Parris Woods, wanted their three daughters to be active, to keep them busy and out of trouble. "You can't just do nothing," says Dinah, 47, a former fitness instructor.
In Paris' tween years, her weight started to creep up. She developed early and classmates made fun of her blossoming bust and swimmers' shoulders.
"They started calling me fat," Paris says softly. It made her very self-conscious.
So she wears two suits to swim. They are a drag on her swimming times, but help camouflage her curves.
Pulling on a blue swim cap and stretching goggles tight over her dark eyes, Paris shallow-dives into the pool where her club team practices.
With smooth, strong strokes, she glides effortlessly through the water, where no one comments on her size or tells her to watch what she eats. In the water, she says, "I stay calm. It takes all the stress away." CLICK HERE TO READ THE REST OF THIS ARTICLE. IT WILL COME UP IN ITS OWN WINDOW.
