Kailyn L. Rainey is the 2019 Queen of Zulu and she looks absolutely stunning in her beaded Mardi Gras Gown.

The Zulu organization is proud of its standing in the local community, but also takes pride in its national and international standing. The Zulu organization has been the subject of numerous television documentaries and newsprint and magazine articles. King Zulu 1949, Louis Armstrong, graced the pages of Time Magazine that year. Essence devoted a full half-hour segment of their weekly television series to Zulu’s impact on Carnival. Hordes of feature stories and photo essays have been done by international publications.

Such a beautiful train on this gown. Love seeing the Zulu shield at the bottom

Such a beautiful moment of the crowning of the 2019 Zulu Queen.
