Hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana, the group, which is now the face of the brand's summer campaign, is composed of heel-wearing, motorcycle riding women that show up and show out on their two-wheelers.
“The Caramel Curves show the world what being a badass boss is all about, while bringing sexiness along for the ride,” Rihanna told Vogue.
The biker club was founded in 2005 by Nakosha “Coco” Smith and Shanika “Tru” Beatty and has expanded to include members with nicknames like Karma, Hoodpriss, Quiet Storm, First Lady Foxy and more. Their unique riding gear consists of sexy heels, sparkling outfits, “anything but basic” T-shirts and helmets donning pink mohawks when they meet on Sundays.
“It is just looking fab all the time,” Smith shared about Caramel Curves’ style. “We are always blinging and glistening. Anything sequins, rhinestones— we’re going to wear it.”
“I didn’t want to go shop for basic clothes because I didn’t dress like that. I always wore sparkly, blingy stuff all the time,” Smith said. “So that pretty much started the trend for the Caramel Curves that this is our look. When you come in, be prepared to look this way. You’re gonna have to wear heels, sexy clothes, be cute. Get it together. We don’t want to look regular. I'm never going to look regular.”
Smith also addressed those who criticize the Caramel Curves for wearing unorthodox biker attire.
“I have been wearing heels and thank the Lord, I never fell,” she said. “But I’ve watched a million men fall that had no heels on, so having a set of heels can't be too bad. Maybe they need to try some heels.”
Although the group caught Rihanna’s attention, they are no stranger to fame as their reach didn’t just begin with a Savage X Fenty endorsement deal.
