Fenty Beauty Inspired This Braid Artist's Amazing Hair

To show off her love of Fenty Beauty's Stunna Lip Paint, braid artist Laetitia Ky created a remarkable, braided hairstyle.
Using her hair, wire, and wool, Ky created a one-of-a-kind braid sculpture to show off her Stunna Lip Paint in Uncensored, which she shared photos of with her nearly 60,000 followers on Instagram.
"So creating this look took me about two hours," Ky explained Yahoo Lifestyle in an interview. "But I did not have too much trouble because it's the second time that I created hands with my braids."
She captioned her impressive photo series:

"THATT RED is the best redddd everr ! Iโ€™m addicted !"
Countless fans of the look tagged Fenty Beauty and Rihanna in the comment section of her post.
"This whole concept is A-MA-ZINGGGGGG," wrote one fan. "Beautiful. I'm inspired."
"okay but how do you get your hair to stay up long enough for pictures?," another questioned.
Another tagged Rihanna and implored the "Rude Boy" singer to take a look: "@badgalriri needs to see it, worn by the best artist ever."
In November, Ky posted braid art which sought to raise awareness on sexual harassment and assault in the wake of the #MeToo movement. Her hair is braided into two figures, a man and a woman, with the former lifting the latter's skirt.
"Thousands of women are raped every day in the world, but very few are able to talk about it, to complain or fight. Why? Because our 'beautiful' society has the tendency to blame the victim almost every time," she wrote in the caption section.
She also added:
" I repeat it once more, dare to talk about it, dare to SNITCH ON YOUR PIGS... talk to the people around you so they can bring you all the support that the victims desperately need to start the process of healing... My DM is open to anyone who wants to talk. You are not alone."

#metoo Thousands of women are raped every day in the world, but very few are able to talk about it, to complain or fight. Why? Because our "beautiful" society has the tendency to blame the victim almost every time. "" Oh but you should not have to gone out so late !!! "" "" "Ah, but you had a mini skirt" "," "why are you complaining if you agreed to have dinner with him?" "," "dont tell me that you were not trying to seduce him with all that makeup" "... Ladies ... NOTHING JUSTIFIES RAPE, SEXUAL ASSAULT OR HARASSMENT. Neither your clothing, your make-up, your relationship with the abuser (because even your husband doesnt have the right to force you to have sex if you dont want to, the concept of marital rape exists). There is no enabling circumstance for the abuser and you need to talk about it so that thing starts to change. Don't remain silent, dont let anyone tell you that you have some responsibility in this despicable act !!!! Speak out because you dont have to carry this burden alone, talk to help other women who are afraid, talk to start a revolution, talk to change things. You are not alone. Dont be discouraged even if your direct surrounding makes you feel guilty ... the weight can be difficult to sustain and the battle can be hard but it is worth it !!!!!! It's never too late to speak out. Even if the assault took place 20 years ago, a crime remains a crime so dare to speak out .... dont let anything pass... so those men learn to honor and respect women . Because yes, it is not for you to interfere with your liberty so that they are not tempted but for them to know how to control themself. I repeat it once more, dare to talk about it, dare to SNITCH ON YOUR PIGS... talk to the people around you so they can bring you all the support that the victims desperately need to start the process of healing... My DM is open to anyone who wants to talk. You are not alone.

Perhaps a Ky x Fenty collaboration could be in the future? It would certainly be a statement-making beauty campaign.
