"My family members always dolled up" - Sha'Carri Richardson on her first beauty memory

Sha'Carri Richardson is popular for her vibrant event-day looks, encompassing stiletto-shaped nails, bright hair, and dramatic lashes. The seed of a unique sense of fashion was planted when she saw the women of her house always dressed up, irrespective of the occasion. The reason behind it was to always be presentable.

In an exclusive interview with Nylon.com, the 24-year-old shared the background of her fashion story.

"I grew up in a household full of women, so my first beauty memory would just be seeing my family members always dolled up. They always presented themselves well and kept up with their personal styles, beauty routines, and hair rituals."

Richardson also shared the frame with pop icon Cardi B in her build-up to Paris. They sat in a conversation set up by NBC and the video was released during the 2024 Kentucky Derby.
