La La Anthony and her NBA hubby, Carmelo Anthony, along with their adorable 5-year-old son Kiyan displayed a family unit in the April issue of Vogue.
The once-known MTV veejay is a stretch from the woman embarking before us today. Outside of filming for the VH1 reality show ‘La La’s Full Court Life’, the beauty is set to launch her makeup line ‘Motives By La La,’ making moves up the social stratosphere dubbed the First Lady of New York City and First Lady of the NBA while still staying vava voom in tip top shape.
In the Annie Leibovitz still, La La is giving fierceness in a gold fitted, buxom front-and-center Oscar de la Renta knit dress adorned with her signature flowing locks. And the guys are more low-key in Rag & Bone fits with matching navy fedoras.
La La opens up about everything from whether her rise to fame has changed her to her sense of style from day-to-day.
Here are some excerpts:
On being chosen as a MTV veejay: “I was very high energy. They wanted to know who this girl was. To be an African-American Hispanic woman on MTV, you weren’t seeing that a lot.
On her busy schedule now: This is the life I’ve always wanted, and basically it comes with the territory. I love my life and my family, and I wouldn’t change a thing.
On how she stays fit: Eating plenty of fruits and vegetable, but if I fall off the wagon, I’ll go on a juice cleanse for a day or two.
Her Mom on how La La treat others as her fame rise: One thing about her is she treats everybody the same. There’s no ‘Oh, I’ve got to suck up to that guy.’ And I think people respect that because everybody helps her out, from the janitor to the CEO. She just came home over the holidays and she wanted to eat Spanish food and talk, and if she left the house even once, I don’t remember.
On her style evolution: Now I definitely like to wear clothes that make me feel good. I love wearing something that makes people stop and say, “Where did you get that? On TV, you want people watching to say ‘Hey she looks great, even when she is dressed down. She just has a way of caring herself.
Carmelo thinks his wife’s style is class and knows how to make things work. Speaking of making things work, Melo gives his take on why they’ve lasted almost a decade: “We’ve been together for eight years, and we’ve kind of made it work. I have my things, and she has hers. I mean, it would be bad if only one of us had things going on.”
It’s impossible to bring up Carmelo and not mention the heavily-rotated trade talks of late that he doesn’t want to hear about again.
According to NY Daily News, when Anthony was asked about the alleged trade, he was not pleased.
“No, no, no, no, let’s nip this in the bud right now. No. I don’t know where that came from. I’m tired of hearing that”
“It came out this morning, I guess an anonymous source. I’m tired of anonymous sources. I don’t want to be traded. I don’t know where that foolishness came from so let’s put a cap on that and make it the last time I hear about that.”
