It was a “wild” weekend for Teyana Taylor. She received a steamy lap dance while strapped down during Normani‘s “Wild Side” performance on the MTV VMAs, and she also presented a show for New York Fashion Week.
The versatile singer/actress/designer is the creative director for the PrettyLittleThing brand, and her showcase featured her five-year-old daughter, Junie.
“I’m so in awe of how much hard work pays off and how much of my heart was involved in making sure this show reflected it,” Teyana commented on Instagram, sharing video highlights from her show.
“Trying hard never fails you when it comes to your passion” she continued. “Thank you to everyone involved in this magical moment! Cause it aint just me!!! Y’all know it takes a village!! Thank you @prettylittlething & @theauntiesinc we did it again!!”
The 2017 VMA winner for Best Choreography says her spring/summer 2022 collection was inspired by hip hop culture from 30 years ago.
“As everyone knows I’m obsessed with the whole ’90s era,” Teyana tells Essence. “Diddy, Mase, Mary [J. Blige], I appreciate that era so much. I appreciate the early ’00s as well.”
She adds that her two daughters, Junie and one-year-old Rue, motivate her to succeed.
“They are the greatest form of genuine love. They’re my biggest fans,” the 30-year-old entertainer says. “They don’t say, ‘Oh mommy, you wear sweatpants, you like a little boy.’ They say, ‘Oh mommy you look cute today, you look like a Teletubby.’ That’s what gets me going. I was always a strong person, but having my babies has made me unstoppable. I get my fearlessness from them.”
