Mela Murder:

MOTHER

Most notably known for her pregnant vogue down Chromats sp/ss 17 runway, Mela Murder is one of the ultimate super women challenging the stereo types of pregnancy.  I myself have not experienced the beauty that is, but I am woman, my friends are women, and there's no secret amongst womanhood, that your baby can leave you short winded and exhausted while baking in that oven.

Be that as it may, Ms. Murder stepped off the runway to write, direct, choreograph, and perform her brand new film/new song, MOTHER; celebrating not only her beautiful body and strength, but also her talent for breathing properly, (literally, she HAS to do Yoga. Her cardio is insane) and not letting something major like bringing life into this world, limit her ability to vogue.

MOTHER debuted on none other than....*drum roll pleasssse*...MOTHERS DAY! and Mela's contouring of the body, voguing on a handstand, and taste for fresh music, Immediately captured my soul.

Take a look at that talents that are: MELA MURDER

"A LETTER TO MY TEENAGE SELF" by SOLANGE KNOWLES

There will be fear. a lot of it. there will be triumph. a lot of it. there will be constellations you want to reach for but can’t put your finger on. you will trace them like the scars on your body you got from trouble and the times of your life. you will take the long way to get to these Orions. the long way will become a theme in your life, but a journey you learn to love....
