Beneath Your Beautiful Campaign

I had the opportunity to work as Model Coordinator at my good friend, Joy Ubani’s event—the Beneath Your Beautiful campaign. I love this event because it seeks to empower self-esteem through fashion. Which is exactly what I believe fashion does, if you let YOUR beautiful shine through!  Check it out:

Now Loving: Faux Fur Jackets.

A little while ago, I talked about the big shopping spree I’m going on soon for some new cold-er weather clothes. I started a series called “Now Loving,” which is shopping list. I’ve been seeing a lot of faux fur jackets—and I’m absolutely loving them!

Don Benjamin.

Who is that, you might ask? That’s  Don Benjamin of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 20 and newly, an entrepreneur! He just started a new t-shirt line, so I went to the t-shirt release event at this really cute boutique. The t-shirts were available, there was a DJ, there was candy, a ton of fabulous clothing, and Don and fellow model Marvin took pictures with fans!

Are you a fashion killa?

So sorry for the long hiatus! I have some really awesome fashion news to share with you from my time away from the blog. But in the meantime, and as my apology, check out this song by A$AP Rocky that I just realized is like the fashion girl anthem. It’s called Fashion Killa:

A shout out to Wang and Lang?! Do you love this song or what?

P.S. A$AP is dating my favorite model Chanel Iman! Love it!

Step like you mean it.

Rick Owens, the “American in Paris,” is a known rule-breaker if you couldn’t tell. He took rule-breaking a step further at this season’s Paris Fashion Week (which is characteristically the most theatrical of fashion weeks around the globe), and he threw the conventions of a normal runway show out the window. Models became step teams, walking the runway became percussive dance, and a group of young, mostly black women set out to redefine beauty:

What do you think about this show? Particularly, did it promote diversity or reinforce age-old stereotypes of black women in a negative way?

The other knowles.

Solange-NY-mag

Everybody knows Beyonce Knowles. Beyonce, Queen Bey, Jay Z’s Wife, whichever you prefer. She is so fabulous that Beyonce that we all try to dance like her—but, you know. We could talk about Beyonce all day, I know. But did you know that her sister Solange Knowles has an album or two?! Her newest EP, True, is not fierce like Beyonce’s 4, but it’s cool. Its vibe-y.
Plus, she dresses so cool:
