In our lifetime. Rihanna is the first black woman on the cover of British Vogue’s September issue in its 102 year history. Edward Enninful is the first black editor of British Vogue and this is his first September issue. 23 year old Tyler Mitchell is the first black photographer to shoot a Vogue cover. He’s also one of the youngest photographers to do so.
Beyoncé – American Vogue September 2018
Rihanna was photographed by Nick Knight, and styled by the incredible Edward Enninful. Beyoncé is wearing a floral headpiece crafted by Rebel Rebel, and on another cover is wearing a tiered dress by Alexander McQueen. Sublime.
Just because I’m gay doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate beauty. And talent. So without further ado here is GIRLS I LIKE! The legends edition.
I knew I wanted to be in fashion the first time I saw Linda Evangelista. I guess I wanted to be a model because of her. Or a fashion stylist. Honestly, I just wanted to be her! She was sooooo beautiful and chic! It was an ad for Barneys, shot by Steven Miesel. Linda had a shoe perched atop her head kissing a chimp. It was brilliant!
Christy Turlington was originally booked for that Barney’s campaign but she got sick and the rest is history.
Here’s a Spring ’16 dress campaign I shot for one of my fave clients Bonton! I love that it shows multiple ways to wear several different dresses! I believe everything you buy should be versatile! I constantly get asked “But how do I wear it!?” Well here’s how! A little black dress can go from day to night with a change of accessories. A hotter shoe and a dressier clutch and you are ready for drinks or dinner!
The denim dress can be worn a million different ways! And year round too! Add textured leggings and knee high boots or booties to take it into fall/winter!
Every woman has that special occasion dress they think they’ll never wear again! Trust me you can. It just takes finding the right pieces to mix it with!
Spring and summer are always about florals! Take them from sweet to edgy with hip accessories.
The little black dress goes to Coachella when paired with haute hippie inspired accessories like a floppy hat and a fringe bag! And don’t be afraid to mix black and brown.
I love this photo. That’s Paris Hilton behind the wheel. And that’s the sisters Kardashian bound & gagged in the trunk of Ford Italy’s Figo. It’s funny because it’s true. Okay it’s not but how funny would it be? Triple K is considering a lawsuit. Like they need more money… Several employees at the ad agency & manufacturer have been fired.
I love this pic. The Teen Choice Awards seem like a nightmare, but this pic is what young Hollywood is all about. Katy looks fresh & sexy in oh so on trend Herve Leger. (John who?) Kristen looks happy, fun & light as air while holding Louboutins. (Robert who?) Selena looks gorgeous, young & happy hanging w/her girls! (Justin who?) Amanda & Lindsay you are not invited.
Last nite at the premiere of Justin Bieber’s new feature length movie (Yes, it’s true. No I can believe it either.) gorgeous and talented former X Factor winner Leona Lewis had her very own premiere. Super sleek eye-grazing bangs. Paired with her new-ish, dark, rich brunette color that she debuted late last year. Love it! The color really makes her gorgeous eyes pop!
From the neck up Leona looks fantastic. Like “supermodel, give this chick a make-up contract” fantastic. Which really makes me wonder why Gwen Stefani is the new face of L’Oreal. Sorry… I digress… The normally sunny blond has stepped her game up in the past year, slimming down and getting the hair completely on point.
