From Gucci to Chanel, this fashion mogul stays slaying in headlines for her dope fashion trends. Marlo Hampton is a well-known fashion expert, entrepreneur, humanitarian and television personality. KontrolBeauty conversed with the gorgeous Marlo Hampton to discuss her upcoming emoji app, the new season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and fashion tips and trends.
It wasn’t long ago when Marlo Hampton made her debut on the fourth season of Bravo Network, The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The longtime friend of the show was known for slaying in designer and being controversial. Season Nine will debut Sunday, November 6th and you can catch Hampton on several episodes. Hampton says “I’m super excited about the housewives, this is going to be a great season.” When asking her opinion on the departure of long-time friend NeNe Leakes she says “I can’t confirm or deny if she will be on the new season, but you wouldn’t even know she wasn’t there.” As the friend of the show we wondered would she ever want to hold the peach. “I just love being a friend of the show. My schedule is very hectic, you have to give a lot of time with being a part of the show. It’s an everyday process.” Hampton also revealed her opinion about the latest debut of Chateau Sheree that “it was very beautiful and worth the wait.”
The “MarloMoji” will be released November 7th, 2016 on iTunes for $1.99.
The fashionista has several projects currently in the works. An emoji app called “Marlomoji” with Apple, her digital segment #AskMarlo and new jewelry line that would be released at the top of the year. Hampton stated that she wanted to release the “Marlomoji” because “a lot of people don’t know my true personality and I felt it was something really creative.” Now, what sets this emoji app apart from the rest? She stated “Because it’s Marlo!” with laughter. “I’m very adamant when it comes to my projects. That’s why it took a long time to release. It took almost a year to make. Every month there will be a new update for holidays and different seasons I like to do everything to perfection.” Her #AskMarlo segments are released viral through her social media accounts. You can ask her any questions regarding fashion advice by sending your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Now, of course, KontrolBeauty had some questions for the fashion expert.
KontrolBeauty asked, what are your favorite fashion trends for the fall season? “My favorite fall items are anything fur, boots, jackets with bedazzle and chokers. I love chokers.” If you’re wondering what colors schemes you should follow? “It’s all about yellow and purple, cream and camel, and layering up! Also, don’t be afraid to wear all white” she added. We then asked what trends she believe should end. With no hesitation, the trendsetter said “NONE. You have to own it if you wear it!” For those who are looking to get their start in the fashion industry she expressed the best way is to “just go for it! Form relationships, go to your local boutiques and go to stores in your local mall. Take pictures every day of your looks, handbags, and accessories. Just take advantage of social media.” Not only is Marlo Hampton known for advice but she is also quite the humanitarian. She doesn’t do it for notoriety but because she is a product of the same environment. Hampton foundation “the Glam it up Project is a foundation that helps young girls in foster care from the ages of 13 to 18. We have girl retreats, luncheons, teach etiquette. Monthly, I try to get with them to take them to the movies or a concerts or basketball game. I love it” It was a pleasure chatting with Hampton and we can’t wait to see what’s next in store for her.
