Want to know what Marlo Hampton has been up to these days?
RC spotted the former RHOA star on SFTA werkin her signature ‘long heel, red bottom’ style for the cover of Denim magazine. Marlo looks stunning as usual for its “Holiday Edition.” Inside she talks about the importance of giving back during the holiday season, her great fashion sense of course and why “confidence” is the one accessory EVERY woman needs to be fabulous!
Check out a few pictures and excerpts from the interview below:
What designers can you not live without?
“I think this may be sort of obvious, and a little birdie might have let you know… all things CHANEL. I am very partial to their clothes because CoCo Chanel was an Orphan. I can relate to that. She didn’t have parents to raise her, but look at what she’s overcome. Her story reminds me of mine. She had humble beginnings but Chanel is the Queen of Fashion, all of their pieces are classy and timeless!”
I understand you gave 20 families turkeys along with meals through your Simply Giving campaign. What are you doing for Christmas?
“It’s my way of “Simply Giving Back” to families during the holidays or a special time of the year. I was able to bless 20 needy families for Thanksgiving with a full meal and all the fixins. I will also be giving back during Christmas and recruiting my Glam It Up girls to show them what it means to give back and do good service at at a soup kitchen.”
What designer would you want to collaborate with on a collection? Would it be high end or price friendly?
“I would love to work with the designers of J. Crew. Their pieces are simply stunning and they have a good mix of everything. Our collection would be what I call “Fashion Affordable.” Nice pieces, for an affordable price, with great style, trend but quality material. There would be something for everyone. We all deserve a piece of Marlo.”
So what or who made you love fashion as a teen?
“As a teen I was in and out of foster care; so having the best fashion was something that seemed unattainable. I didn’t win Best Dressed, but I understood at an early age I couldn’t afford certain kinds of clothing when I was growing up. But, what I do remember about my mother was that she loved nice things. At times, when we did get clothes; we would get them from a second hand store. And she always kept us clean and extremely polished.”
What fashion accessories does a women need to be fabulous?
“The one accessory that EVERY women needs to be Fabulous is CONFIDENCE. it’s the one accessory that’s Priceless. Money can’t buy it and as long as you wear that; nothing else matters!”
