Videography: Janet Jackson

Edited by

Videography charts an artist’s fashion evolution through their music videos. First up, her name’s not Baby, it’s Janet. Ms. Jackson if you’re nasty. Janet had a string of classic hits and equally classic videos throughout the 80s, 90s and early 00s before being sidetracked by Nipplegate. But not even the sun medallion seen round the world could keep the youngest member of the Jackson clan down and out for too long. Over the past 30 years, Janet has made an indelible impact on the pop culture landscape through her genre-bending music, groundbreaking videos and cutting-edge style.

#NYFW Cheat Sheet: Moncler Grenoble Fall/Winter 2012

Edited by

Let it be known that Moncler Grenoble completely shut it down at its Fall/Winter 2012-13 presentation Sunday night. Show attendees walked down the sloping hill to Wollman Rink in Central Park where hot rum ciders and roasted chestnuts awaited us before the show began. The rink, surround by trees set aglow by brilliantly colored lights, soon filled with the sights of figure skaters and sounds of The Harlem Boys Choir belting out Frank Sinatra’s New York, New York, all dressed in Moncler. The numbers that followed were truly spectacular, and you can watch them all right here.

Models At The Met

Edited by

Models At The Met Being exposed, first hand, to all the glorious fashions from runway shows and editorials, one would think that models would steal the the best dressed award on last night’s Met Gala red carpet. While Chanel Iman, in her stunning Zac Posen dress, was a show stopping attendee, Shalom Harlow looked rather homeless and out of place in her crumpled, Gareth Pugh-ish garbage bag. Brooke Shields looked like a mermaid body builder. Agyness Deyn was an over-bronzed transvestite. Brooklyn Decker rocked out a Mary-Kate worthy outfit. All in all, the model fashion was skewed across the board. Tsk tsk…I expected big things from such fashion relatives.

SPREAD UM: Alek Wek in I-D Magazine, March 2009

SPREAD UM: Alek Wek in I D Magazine, March 2009

I believe Alek Wek can do no wrong, and this spread is no different. The supermodel is transformed into an African queen for the latest issue of I-D magazine. Wek shows off the ethnic fashion of the season better than anyone else could. I absolutely love her shoes in this photo; finding out where to buy them would put my wallet in grave danger.

WTF!?! Alek Wek #fashionfail

Alek Wek seems to have mixed up the Golden Globes for a night of clubbing in the Meat Packing District. The model decided to alter this Christian Dior dress converting it into a horrid Forever 21 rejected mini.

Domini-can: Arlenis Reps it for the Hispanicals in Black Vogue

Edited by

Domini can: Arlenis Reps it for the Hispanicals in Black VogueSo I’ve already talked about the all black people issue of Vogue Italia that is set to hit newsstands in June, but what I didn’t realize is that the issue will also feature some of my peeps.  Arlenis, a fresh faced Dominican model, will be gracing the pages of the issue with a solo spread and one where she’ll play model friendly with Alek Wek, Jourdan and Iman Chanel.

So that begs the question to be asked.

Is it an all Black Vogue if some of the models aren’t black? Or is this more a non-white Vogue?

Either way, it’s kind of exciting to see a model on the runway from the island countries. It isn’t my native Puerto Rico, but I’ve spent enough time with Dominicandies to call them friends.
