In a rare interview, actress Alana Blake is proud of her silk rug, which she has dubbed the ‘Silk Ribbon.’
“It’s a tribute to my mom and a reflection of the way she looked and smelled and felt,” Blake said of the rug, with a wink.
“It reminds me of the beauty of her work, her love of color and her work on the runway, as well as her love for me.
It’s a reflection on my mother’s work and the beauty she was.”
The new silk-woven rug has a deep red and gold tone, and Blake’s husband, actor-comedian Tim McGraw, has been photographed wearing it on the red carpet of this year’s Golden Globes.
“I am a huge fan of the silks,” Blake added.
“They’ve really been a part of my life, and I really do think about them a lot.
It is something that we really want to incorporate into our lifestyle.”
Blake has been on a mission to improve the lives of impoverished African-American women in Hollywood.
In 2012, Blake was named the most powerful woman in the entertainment industry.
Her film, Alana’s Black Christmas, won the 2017 Emmy Awards for best documentary.
In 2018, she starred in her first major movie, Blackfish, which won the 2016 Academy Award for best film.
