Last night I attended the finale of America’s Next Top Model Cycle Five. I’m a reluctant fan of the show. I believe the girls that become the second runner-up are the ones that should win. I am a fan of Elyse, Kahlen, Mercedes, Shandi, and Shannon. This season was all about Bre Scullark. Bre was like the girls I grew up with in Chicago. Fabulous, a touch ghetto, pretty, and oh so real. Whenever she was on screen, I was riveted. Though I didn’t see a win in Bre’s future, she made it to the final three. Robbed. Victory snatched from her grasp. I love how she kept it real until the very end. When she lost, the heels came off, and the glasses went back on. You must never forget in your travels who you are. She did not. Tonight my mission was to meet her. I did, and she was just as I hoped she would be. Sublime.

When you were little did you ever play “I’m Going To The Grocery Store?” It was a memorization game where you had to remember alphabetically the contents of a shopping list from A to Z. Well this month we’re going shopping for an outing to the beach! Even if it’s just up to Zuma to surf, or Malibu for the weekend, it still pays to look chic.
I’m going to the beach and what do I need? Let’s start with THE swimsuit. Even when almost naked a man should look stylish. I’m going sexily modest with Tom Ford’s sleek CAMOUFLAGE CLASSIC SWIM SHORT. Paired with a polo or tunic they’re incredibly posh.
I recently had the honor of appearing on my home away from home Good Day L.A. chatting the Best and Worst Dressed at the 2019 Met Gala. Click here to see the video! This was my fifth time covering the #metgala for GDLA, and it was easily one of the best red carpets yet!
