Shaunte Harris aka DaBrat recently got all “Fem’d” up for a photoshoot for VIBE Magazine’s Summer of Celeb’s in Swimwear issue…
No, she’s not overexposed in a cut-out swimsuit or vintage bikini. Instead, she’s donning casual chic summer wear that’s appropriate for all types of summer fun.
In maxi dresses, khaki shorts and an oversized cream-colored blouse, Da Brat rocks a head full of bodaciously brown curls and really exudes a soft, yet sultry demeanor. Appropriate? Most definitely.
I can just hear her PR now… “Girrrrrl if you wanna get ’em talkin’ WEAR A DRESS!”
Welp… it worked! More photos below…
I love her hair! That’s too cute!!
How did you feel about the Vibe.com photo shoot?
I absolutely loved it! The stylist Tamara Connor was amazing. Mara Z styled my hair with the help of her assistant Dina as well as my regular hairstylist, Shontelle Sampeur. Mara also did my makeup. Both hair and make-up were great. And I loved the photographer, Alex. I definitely want to do more photo shoots with him because I can tell he is passionate about his work.
I’m such a fucking lady. I loved to get glammed up. I love manis and pedis. I like to go to Vicky Secrets and La Perla because I like lace and bikinis. I’m such a P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thug)
What type of message do you want to portray to women about their bodies.
Be who you are!
What are you doing to stay in shape?
Work out. Working out is like a stress reliever.
What type of clothes do you wear to make you look sexy?
It depends on the look and how I’m feeling that day.
What is your favorite body part?
I don’t have just one. I love all parts of my body! But on a man, I love the Adonis line. It’s just so sexy!
What do you have to say about your new mixtape?
It’s DUMB STUPID CRAZY! It’s HOTTER THAN A MOTHER FUCKER! BRAT IS BACK!
I dunno… Da Brat looks great from the neck up, but she appears kinda uncomfortable in those shoes.
What do you think of this new softer “feminine” side of DaBrat?
