Recently, GQ.com posted this article hailing the return of the FLARE! Anyone who really knows me knows that this is my look, and I can’t wait for fall because I have been HOARDING bootcut, stovepipe, flared trousers for years now. I adore this silhouette and shall be WORKING it during my book tour. I especially like looks 1 and 3.
I’m so over the tyranny of the short skinny trouser, shrunken blazer, and the JEGGING ON MEN. I was not fond of the entire last decade and the ridiculousness of Thom Browne dressing grown men like pre-pubescent, post-World war II private school children or extras from a Pink Floyd movie/video. Yes, I just referenced The Wall.
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.
The beautiful press for SUPREME MODELS keeps coming! My baby is almost a year old! I can’t believe that. It seems like just a moment ago the book that took eight years to create was released into the world. It changed everything. I can’t remember who I was before I became an author.
The press for SUPREME MODELS: Iconic Black Women Who Revolutionized Fashion continues to keep coming. In the past month, SUPREME MODELS has been mentioned by Grazia UK, Vogue Ukraine, on Access Hollywood, and Book Authority proclaimed it one of the “100 Best Fashion Books of All Time.” It’s incredibly thrilling. I’m humbled and proud.
