Mo’Nique and Designer Tae’Woo of Duke N’ Dutchess

Tae’ Woo spoke exclusively with EFR and we asked him about the inpsiration for her dress, he said: “The gown was designed at the request of her husband. He wanted all black and I wanted a little flavor, so the gown was created. I named it after my aunt Karen, it is part of my Spring 2017 collection called Mogul”. He also added: “The Katrina dress will be available for purchase on my website at next Friday”.

The “Almost Christmas” movie also stars Kimberly Elise, Danny Glover,  Keri Hilson and Gabrielle Union. The Christmas comedy is about the Meyers family patriarch played by Danny Glover who asked his family for one gift this holiday season, to get along.
