Yara Shahidi & Her Mom Just Launched A Production Company

Black women aren't just securing bags, we're securing generational wealth.

Yara Shahidi

Black women aren't just securing bags, we're securing generational wealth and Yara Shahidi's first look real with ABC proves that I'm speaking big facts.

Recently, it was announced that the Grown-ish star and her mother, Keri Shahidi, launched their production company, 7th Sun Productions, a major mommy-daughter mogul move that Keri says the power duo "manifested".

In a previous interview with Glamour, Yara revealed that her mother is her biggest cheerleader and explained that it's because of her mom's relentless guidance that she's able to fly beyond her wildest imagination:

"She constantly says to me, 'You deserve to be in the room.' One thing I'm still trying to figure out is how to advocate for myself as strongly as she advocates for me. It's important that women of color and anyone from marginalized identities understands that they will try to intentionally unsettle you. They'll do this so that you'll spend so much of your time trying to convince people you belong that you don't get to dig in and do the work you were meant to do."
"I've always been curious. My mother always says, 'There's nothing more interesting than an interested human.' And I've just always been interested."

For more of our favorite famous mother/daughter duos who are simultaneously securing bags and leaving a legacy for their children's children at the same damn time, scroll below!

Serena Williams & Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.

As of last week, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. is officially the youngest team owner of a professional sports team in history and damn it, we love to see it.

Serena and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, who are also co-owners of The Angels, an LA-based women's soccer team, say that the investment was a move that was was not only securing space for their daughter in the sports industry, but for other women who look like her.

Thandie Newton & Nico Parker

If twinning was a person, it would be Nico Parker because that girl looks just like her mama. Booking the lead role in Dumbo and launching her career on the big screen before the age of 16 only proves that this young starlet is following in her mother's footsteps and will secure many a bags in her future.

Diana & Tracee Ellis Ross 

Diana Ross has been serving us moments for more than five decades and Tracee's recent role in The High Note proves that she's here to pick up the torch. While these two ladies have found success in different lanes of the entertainment industry, Tracee has always been outwardly appreciative for her mom's guidance in helping her build a legacy of her own.

Jada Pinkett & Willow Smith

Although Willow Smith had already broken into the entertainment industry with her 2010 hit "Whip My Hair", viewers got to see a different side of the now 19-year-old starlet when she, her mother, and grandmother launched the Red Table Talkand took the internet by storm.

Zoe Kravitz & Lisa Bonet

Although Zoe Kravitz may be the spitting image of Lisa Bonet, she's creating a lane in the entertainment industry of her own. As the lead on Hulu's High Fidelity and co-starring in HBO's mega hit Big Little Lies, it's clear that the best is yet to come for this lineage of moguls.

Red nails have always intrigued me—namely because the red nails were always on the fingers of a well-put-together woman with perfectly laid hair, a perfume that lingered, and an heir of confidence orbiting them. Oh, and they usually drove a luxury car. I assume this is why we're all discussing the "red nail theory," a hot topic on TikTok thanks to GirlBossTown discovering that wearing red nail polish was responsible for an uptick in male attention. The #redtheory hashtag has 100 million views and counting. So, let's take a further look into this anecdotal theory.

I Tried A Liquid Vibrator To Enhance Sexual Pleasure & This Is What Happened

Okay, I know what you’re thinking: WTF is a liquid vibrator? Or you might even be wondering, Does a liquid vibrator work the same way as a regular vibrator? I admit, when I first heard the term ‘liquid vibrator,’ I was a bit curious and confused as well. Turns out, a liquid vibrator isn’t a vibrator at all, it’s a clitoral arousal gel.
