Huddah the boss chick is currently queening fashion world in LA after her hard work and determination in business has finally paid off to see her in one of international fashion magazines where she has been featured as an iconic inspiration alongside other current best legends.
Harper’s Bazaar US Magazine felt they should give this gorgeous Kenyan socialite who truly is a beautiful independent, free spirited African woman and the CEO of Huddah cosmetics the honor of gracing their pages.
She launched Huddah Cosmetics which stocks matte lipstics, Eye shadow and make up remover wipes.
“The only thing we had was poverty. The only thing we didn’t have was food. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be an independent woman, and I saw an opportunity to start my own business and help other women feel beautiful.”
According to the magazine, Huddah Monroe, is a beauty entrepreneur who shot to fame when she appeared on Big Brother Africa in 2013.
Whether Abu Dhabi or Monaco or Atlanta or Shanghai, she’s never in the same place for long.
But these days, L.A. (where next year she plans to open a Huddah Cosmetics U.S. flagship stocking her popular liquid lipsticks and eye shadow palettes for darker skin tones) is like a second home to her.
The article goes on to narrate that with 1.7 million Instagram followers and her face plastered all over billboards, Huddah, 27, is one of Kenya’s most talked-about personalities.
They further reveal that she keeps a compound in Runda Estate, Nairobi’s poshest neighborhood, and has spent the past several months in one of downtown L.A.’s glittering new high-rises, where a posse of basketball stars forms her chosen family.
“It doesn’t hurt that she’s as photogenic as Iman, but Huddah’s success is still a remarkable achievement for a girl born and raised in the slums of Nairobi. “I grew up in a very nice environment,” Harper’s quotes her.
“I love pairing fast fashion with beautiful accessories.” Huddah loves local hot spots like Nobu Malibu and the Lone Wolf Cigar Lounge (she has her own line of flavored cigars—the band reads hbc, for Huddah the Boss Chick). “L.A. has become so international and so welcoming,” she says. “It gives me the chance to dress up. Every day is like going to an awards show.”
Monroe expressed her gratitude and joy of being featured in the magazine in her own words on her Instagram page.
“To me LA is like the world’s greatest party,known for its Mediterranean climate, ethnic diversity, Hollywood, the entertainment industry, and it is the “misunderstood city”.
If you’re lucky enough to travel anywhere , this is a place you have to go & make the most of it. Have fun, take advantage of the opportunities and meet as many people as you can.
Thank you Harpers Bazaar US Magazine for helping me share this experience on the SEPTEMBER ISSUE . I never one day imagined I’d be in one of the Worlds biggest fashion magazine”.
