Former Miss Ethiopia Sehin Belew says women do not have to be rich to be fashionable

By Jackson Mvunganyi


Washington D.C

Take care of yourself…and then accept yourself. That's the message of Sehin Belew, a former Miss Ethiopia who has been living in the United States for the past couple of decades. She works as an image consultant, giving advice on beauty, health and fashion. Her new book, Fabulous for Less, is about her philosophy on fashion and health.

Sehin encourages women to make the most of what they have. "Health is very important," she says adding, "People should be mindful of their bodies and take time to exercise." She warns that beauty does not mean that you are thin but rather that you "have the right attitude." She also says people should be "savvy" in the way they care for their skin.

Sehin warns that people should be careful of appearance because "sometimes we are judged by the way we look." She says one's appearance could have an impact on one's professional life. But she adds that good fashion sense doesn't always mean having to pay a lot for clothing.

She encourages people to look at the ingredients in the "lotions and powders you use on your body…." "Find out ," she says, "what products contain toxic ingredients and how to replace them with pure, natural ones."

Sehin is also a former professional model and humanitarian who spent years raising awareness about hunger in Ethiopia. She continues to speak about such issues as poverty and women's rights in Africa. She now lives in northern California, where her business is based

Nothing wrong with to make some effort to look good as long as one not obsessed by it; however, don’t forget your right attitude is the only one never betrayed you. I see some of my beloved Ethiopian women acts as if their pretty face is the only thing they have.

May I also state to Ms. Sehin Belew, the former Miss Ethiopia and all other sisters out there that women do not also have to be skinny to be considered beautiful, adorable, lovable and fashionable.

In my view, physically, a woman has to be as ripe as delicious fresh fruit, fleshy or a bit plump, cushy (soft and comfortable), and curvy (having a large bosom and pleasing curves).

Ever seen, a curvy young woman in a tight dress or long pants?

Farah Ali – You are a typical African man for making the above remark! LOL

Anyways back to the point. I think this is really non sensical!!! With the global economic crises,wars,famine,drought etc the last thing that should be on anyone’s mind is beauty and style – that is bull crap!

I would rather she help people in our beloved Ethiopia than to waste time on such pathetic issues!

Oh and cubaya i am surprised you are complaining about habesha women not having enough sex!? Go to Kenya and see how so many of them have turned into prostitutes just for money for as little as 25 birr they are ready to sleep with men!!! It made me ashamed to call myself habesha! Go to Kenya maybe they will give it to you for free thinking you are ferengi!:crazy:
