About This Episode

Regal, classic and always chic, beauty and style expert Mikki Taylor is the epitome of elegance and grace. Her signature smile, radiant personality and striking beauty is captivating as she recalls the moment she fell in love with fashion.  “I think I came here in love with fashion,” Mikki fantasizes while revealing it was her mother who first introduced her to this exciting and glamorous world.

Having been born and raised in Newark, New Jersey, a mecca of music, arts and culture, it is only fitting that this small town girl, Mikki Taylor would grow to become the famed fashion and beauty cover editor for ESSENCE Magazine. She carved a lane for herself in the fasion industry and now stands as the country’s leading authority on beauty and style for women of color. Her book, Commander In Chic is slated to debut on November 27th:

With her “classic with a twist” sensibility, Michelle Obama oozes chic! Mikki Taylor, one of the nation’s foremost authorities on fashion, beauty, and style, has taken Mrs. Obama as her muse, to write the book women who admire them both have been waiting for, Commander in Chic.

In this episode, Mikki describes in her own words how she made it.
