A Woman You Should Know: Dr. K. Aletha Maybank


While some people look to the stars for style inspiration and beauty to imitate. I look to real everyday women for their style and beauty, those under the radars of everyone else who eventually end up being on their lips. So far I have picked four beauty's who were under everyone else's noses and now they're the talk of the world.

I have an eye to pick out stylish women who have an imitable style that stands apart from the pack. They don't wear a "uniform" and they don't look like everyone else and Dr.Maybanks style says just that, she stands out from everyone else and she's her own woman. I've seen her photos on the social pages of and had to find out more about her. The woman is accomplished, not just by her choice of fashion, but how she contributes back to her community as a whole. Giving back by supporting your community is more beautiful than any red carpet look.
