Something bothers me when people I know with talent aren't being recognized. Apparently there is a new type of catwalk for men and I didn't get the memo. I followed my friend for an audition for a fashion show and I was amazed at the ego dripping from the walls. The models came out in full force and wanted to show that lip gloss and over dressing were better than knowing how to catwalk. I'm not one to brag but I know people that can catwalk far better than any of those heffers i saw that day and to make matters worse they didn't pick my friend pissed yes i am so i am going to promote people from 9ja whom I think should be walking at Bryant Park though I heard this is the last year Fashion week will be there. Well any way look and be amazed at these face that are going to break out very soon. Lisa, Kevwe, Tosin, Efe

He is definitely a first of firsts n everything he does. From working as creative Director at the House of givenchy to designing credit cards at Coutts Bank there is nothing the man has not done. he is living proof that you can do it all be black, have a family, have a thriving business without breaking a sweat and in a Bespoke suit.
For the past two weeks Timi has been disturbing to find out which designer made the ankara outfits in Put in a love song Video. There was some argument in which some retard said it was by Jewel By Lisa and I said to the nit wit do you see any embellishment on that dress, two have you not already seen her collections for the year and did you see that dress any were. Any way the outfits are by a label called Boxing Kitten (reminds of the You tube video doesn't it) and the designer's name is Maya Lake. Any way The video features Beyonce in this figure hugging ensemble that is too die for. I have uploaded picture i got from some site I can't even remember so you see all off boxing Kittens Fabness if there is even a word like that
I came across the name LaQuan Smith two weeks ago while researching fora paper i was writing and i was totally blown away.
LaQuan Smith is probably one of the only young designers within the age gap of 20-25 that is ready to take amazing risks that pay. The guy is only 21 and is a-ma-zing he has dressed the likes of Rihanna for her Rude Boy Video, Lady Gaga Jaslene Gonzalez of the ANTM fame and attention whore and former Danity Kane member Aubrey O'day. The name of his label is LA Queue and he specialises in vinyl jumpsuits, ruffle tops, mettalics seperates, sequines tube dresses and those o so fabulous leggings he sometimes wears, his designs are defintley not for the faint of heart.

Finally french Vogue has decided to use a black girl on their cover. This is the first solo cover for a woman of color in 8 years not since 2002's cover girl Liya Kedebe. It sure has taken them a long time we hope they continue with this trend and stop painting the white models black when they have beautiful girls like Rose Cordero as seen on the cover. The pictures feature her in a spanish military get-up. Love it
Alexander Mcqueen is dead but his legacy remains after. the owners of his label Gucci have said that they will keep on with line and to prove this they just released some promo pictures for his second line MCQ men's line. Be amazed at the awesomeness of Alexander McQueen. Above are some of the pictures from the MCQ line and my favourite bag.

I never was a fan of Nigerian Music until recently. When I started listening to some musicians who actually had lyrics that made sense and didn't mumble incoherently about being a monk and not flaunting it puh leeeeez!!!!!. I love the new school of Nigerian Music with people like Lami, Eva, Mo'cheddah, Dagrin, Duncan Daniels, Banky W, Naeto C, Dr Sid, Wizkid, Ibiyemi e.t.c These people keep my Ipod burning up day after. These are some songs you should listen to.
1. Thief my Kele, Banky W
2. Lagos party RMX Banky W
3. Eva I dey Play
4. Dr Sid- Winchi Winchi
5. Dagrin -Kondo
6. Ibiyemi- Dont leave me and can you love me
7. Lami- Kaleidoscope, Nuttin Do U and Everytin
8. Omawunmi- Chocolata, Today na Today
9. Mo'cheddah-All i want for Christmas
10. Maye Hunta- Ekaete
Recently some soft sell magazine wrote about Uche Jombo being preggers and having a little snip snip done. Well the actress is having none of it and is suing the magazine for a 100 million. Funny though isn't 100 million a bit too much were on earth will they get that money. Please get serious here its a bit much but any way go for and get every $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ you can get.
Besides the fact that Betty Suarez has disastrous fashion sense and looks like a Saint Bernard with Braces, I love the show what I can't understand is why it was canceled. They are claiming that it was because the ratings were poor. i say BOLLOCKS !!!! The ratings were poor i think because the time slot for the show. Tell people Studio execs what will happen to my Fairy godmother Wilhelmina Slater, where will i learn that combining floral and stripes can make you have a migraine, were will i find out that it is true what the say about nice people they always get burned are listening Betty Suarez. Tell me were will i get all these useful tips. On the plus side The Kid who plays Justin Mark Indelicto sorry if i got the spelling wrong is going to be interning at Teen Vogue, good for him and recently he revealed he is not a fan of squeaky voice Miley Cyrus really who is a fan of dancing on an stripper inspired ice cream pole and horrible singing. What will happen to the other stars America Ferera, Michael Urie, Becki Newton and Vanessa Williams were will you all go?
The ever fabulous Messus GAGA wa actually covered up for the Brit awards this week. She wore a head gear quite similar to the one she wore for her 944 magazine shoot very nice. She was a big winner that night raking 3 awards: International Female Solo Artist, International Breakthrough act International Female Album of the year for her album THE FAME. Othe r winners that night were JLS, Jay-Z, Robbie Williams, Dizzie Rascal and SPICE GIRLS !!!!!!!!!!.
In case you don't know i ma currently doing my compulsory service thingy for Nigeria and it is not going the way i thought it will. The people NYSC have refused to pay me and the second hand bank the assigned me to had the audacity to be rude to me. I really can't be bothered because it is a waste of one year of my precious life. That being said what is it with people not knowing when too keep quiet. When you choose to be quiet around these talkatives they think you are snubbish or fake. I'm sorry i dont want to discuss my life with everybody i see on the street because you have a crush on somebody does not mean i should balance in his office and start telling him how my day was have a crush on him my dear friend but do nit drag me along and make be nice when you know am soooooo not nice (kidding)

Naomi Campbell did her bit to raise money for Haiti at New York Fashion week at the end of the show there was a tribute to fashion designer Alexander McQueen in which the ever fab Daphne Guiness(look her up if you have been living under a rock) Helena Christensen and other super models came out decked in McQueen creations (tears anyone cuz I'm crying). The show itself featured the ultra Fabulous Diane Von Furstenberg (love her),Kelly Osbourne and prepare to be shocked Chris Brown. photo courtsey Perez Hilton (Cooco Perez)
When I heard there was going to be a remake of We are the World. i said to myself hhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!! then i went and raided my mum's old records and found the original song hidden deep and i listened to it again and without listening to the new remake i concurred with Mr Jigga aka Jay-z aka Mr HOVA aka Sean Carter, did this greta song really need a remake. But aside that for a good cause and we love when people do something for a good cause. The only issue once again was Miley Cyrus really people was Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera Snoozin at this time at least Melanie Fiona would have done a better job and she was relgated to chorus. Who the hell isNipsey Hussle he has never even had a charted song i know i researched ARRRRRRRRRRgggggggghhhhhhhhhhh please were was Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban I know she is controversial but were was Lady Gaga too much hip hop and no pop. Love the song any way.
On a new note Simon Cowell did a cover version for REM's Everybody Hurts featuring Leona Lewis, Diva extraordinaire Mariah Carey and ugh not again Miley Cyrus. I feel my interest slipping. Go buy these songs and Help Haiti Don't be cheap buy them
We love Lady GAGA too much despite her never ending fashion moments. The girl could wear a monitor on her head and still look HAUTE!!!!!!!!!!!. I personally don't know why but every time i hear a GAGA song I flip and start singing along unfortunately for people me and my crew at House of Anarchy are going to annoy you with our own versions of every GAGA song ever done while shooting is going on enjoy pictures of our ever fabulous GAGA
The Africa Arise Collection Recently showed at New York Fashion Week at the famous Bryant Park. For any designer to show at Bryant Park is a great feat. The Lucky designers that got to show at Arise were Deola Sagoe, Black Coffee and Lion Cloth and Ashes. The show was fabulous but as usual left me wondering which self respecting Nigerian would go through all that heat just for fashion I could come up with some names but seeing as I am new to blogging and I am not being paid to make some people look good (You know who you are) I'll stick to the script. The Deola Sagoe dresses were were a mixture of goth chic, rock star and a little bit of something I cannot quite figure ou. Below are some Pictures from the show. Be amazed Most of the Pictures here are from the Deola Sagoe Collection
