Meet 24 years old Leanne Humphrey, a very befitting beauty for our Natural Icon Beauty of the Month Feature. I wanted to know more about this Natural Icon’s style & personality so I got her to spill the beans just a little…
NIB: Tell me about your personality.
LH: I am a very bohemian, free spirited person. I am very extroverted and determined. I try to base all of my actions with love.
NIB: What’s your personal style?
LH: I dress extremely funky. I wear a lot of colours and I wear comfortable materials. I like anything that looks unique. I have an obsession with jewellery. I like extravagant jewellery pieces. My style is very Afro Centric with a quirky European twist to it.
NIB: Why natural hair?
LH: I went through so many phases of hairstyles in my life… From natural twists to straightened hair to weaves to bob cuts to mo-hawks… Just ended up at dreadlocks… It is not so much why natural hair but why dreadlocks? There is a certain wisdom I feel attached to my hair. It is my crown and it is interesting the story that my dreads tell. Every tight matted tress tells a story of what I was going through when that length of my hair was growing. It is just one of those things where my heart just knew that dreadlocks was for me… With other hairstyles, I could’ve seen myself trying a different one. With my dreads, I can’t see any other style in my future but longer dreads.
Leanne is from the beautiful Island of Barbados. Leanne switched from studying Theatre Arts to the Music Programme at Edna Manley College as she revealed to me, “that is my true passion. I am an upcoming recording artiste! My stage name is Vanessa Lee.”
She radiates an infectious energy! She is the rebel of love, light and conquest. With a striking soul, Vanessa Lee rules her voice with the power of musical reason.
I must say, the first time I saw Leanne, I was wowed. She has such a fierce beauty and unique style that I knew I had to capture it on camera for my blog. I was not disappointed. She was just as fierce behind the cameras as she was in person, and of course, it transcended well on photo. A picture is worth a thousand words and I’ve posted more than one so I’ll just let them help to tell Leanne’s story in addition to what she already told us.
