A Few of Her Most Beautiful Things

By Alannah O’Neill
Queen Latifah is one of those rare celebrities who’s so recognizable that everyone feels like they know her intimately. It’s not surprising, considering her resume reads like a pop culture guide– first lady of hip hop turned television personality and Oscar nominated movie star. In spite of these high profile accomplishments, Latifah is a celebrity who doesn’t disappoint: her off-screen personality is as enigmatic and warm as her on-screen characters. I recently had a couple minutes to sit down and chat with the COVERGIRL model while she made a brief stop off in town to host the Second Annual P&G Beauty and Grooming Awards.
