Who is that, you might ask? That’s  Don Benjamin of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 20 and newly, an entrepreneur! He just started a new t-shirt line, so I went to the t-shirt release event at this really cute boutique. The t-shirts were available, there was a DJ, there was candy, a ton of fabulous clothing, and Don and fellow model Marvin took pictures with fans!

Are you a fashion killa?

So sorry for the long hiatus! I have some really awesome fashion news to share with you from my time away from the blog. But in the meantime, and as my apology, check out this song by A$AP Rocky that I just realized is like the fashion girl anthem. It’s called Fashion Killa:

A shout out to Wang and Lang?! Do you love this song or what?

P.S. A$AP is dating my favorite model Chanel Iman! Love it!

Step like you mean it.

Rick Owens, the “American in Paris,” is a known rule-breaker if you couldn’t tell. He took rule-breaking a step further at this season’s Paris Fashion Week (which is characteristically the most theatrical of fashion weeks around the globe), and he threw the conventions of a normal runway show out the window. Models became step teams, walking the runway became percussive dance, and a group of young, mostly black women set out to redefine beauty:

What do you think about this show? Particularly, did it promote diversity or reinforce age-old stereotypes of black women in a negative way?
