The girls’ styles are appropriately suited to their careers. Fashion editor Cipriana takes a more subtle, conservative approach to her outfits than her sister, TK. As a performer, TK Wonder is a bit more liberal in her outfit selections. Together the girls honestly make a wonderful pair, each look balancing out the other.

Both are known for their larger than life, au natural hair. This is actually a focal point of the blog Urban Bush Babes, having naturally curly hair and embracing it. Just consider this site as “the definitive source for natural hair, fashion, health, lifestyle, music and arts & culture while living in NYC”, as the founders put it. It draws in creative and free-thinking people, promoting them to connect and inspire each other to live life boldly. You do not have to dress like the Quann twins to be confident and inspiring; you can do that just as you please.

Sadly I cannot keep these ladies as my best kept secret seeing as Cosmopolitan, Vogue, Elle, and Marie Claire have more than a few readers. There is little doubt in my mind that these ladies are not primed for some major moves in the near future. But when you are in campaigns for Sunglass Hut, Rachel Roy, and & Other Stories, I think that goes without saying.

If you love the idea of super-stylish twins, but never liked the Olsen twins’ style (sorry ladies), then I think these might be the girls for you. Meet Cipriana and Takenya “TK” Quann, or the Quann Sisters, as they are often called. TK is an electropop musician, while Cipriana is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of style blog Urban Bush Babes.

These Baltimore-raised beauties grew up as many twin siblings have, being dressed in matching outfits. For some it can be a bit overbearing, but for these girls it was the start of something beautiful. Because they (and their wardrobes) were so close, their styles matured and developed together. As teenagers, the girls would trade clothing that they would then alter to their liking before returning. Now as adults, they might gravitate toward the same items in a store that they would each style to match their individual tastes.
