Lala Anthony Covers The August 2014 Issue Of Latina Magazine
For the fourth time, Lala Anthony covers Latina magazine. On the publication’s August 2014 issue, the successful media personality turned actress and business mogul looks cute and sparkly in a white and silver top.
Inside, the TTAMT actress talks about spending time with her husband Carmelo Anthony & son Kiyan, having another child, her fashion line 5th & Mercer, designing clothes that flatter Latinas, and much more.
On her perfect night with her family: “My husband, my son and I have the best time when it’s just the three of us. It’s nice to all be together, put a movie on, lie in the bed and laugh. That’s my idea of a perfect, fun time.”
On being ready to have another child: “I do start feeling bad because [my son, Kiyan, 7, will] ask about a baby [sibling] and I feel a little selfish. If I did have another child, the reason would be that I wouldn’t want my son to be alone in the world as an only child. But we’ll see.”
On her new fashion line, 5th & Mercer: “I know what works on Latinas, black women and curvy women. But it’s great that a website like ShopBop that isn’t used to having that kind of consumer—they’re used to stopping at a six or an eight—to push them to go up to a fourteen and understand our kind of woman.”
On designing clothes that flatter Latinas: “I always notice my quickest-selling sizes are the fourteens, the twelves and the tens. I just won a little disagreement to increase the sizes with the website ShopBop. They were only going from zero to eight and I’m like, ‘No, we come in all sizes, we have to increase the sizes.’ So now they go from zero to fourteen and I wish they would go even higher.”
This issue hits newsstands on July 8th. Below are some excerpts:
