STYLE LUSH

SNAPSHOT FROM i-D MAGAZINE. ASIDE FROM HIS HAIR, HIS STARE AND HIS LIPS...EVEN THAT JUMPER HAS GROOVE. 

RED ALERT

A SUREFIRE WAY TO GRAB SOME RED HOT ATTENTION THIS SPRING/SUMMER IS TO SQUEEZE INTO SOME RED JEANS. DRESSED UP OR DOWN, IN CRIMSON OR BURGUNDY, THE CELEBS SEEM TO BE EMBRACING THIS COLOUR TOO. WELL IT IS THE COLOUR OF LOVE SO IT MAKES SENSE. ALEXA AND I CHOSE THE MUTED HUE. WE GET ENOUGH ATTENTION AS IT IS. BLA.

ART THAT AIN'T SHY

I WAS LEAFING THROUGH THE HEAP OF FASHION MAGS ON MY STURDY PINK IKEA DESK WHEN I WAS DRAWN TO SOME, WELL, DRAWINGS.  THEY WERE BY FASHION ILLUSTRATOR RICARDO FUMANAL. USING HIS UNTAMED IMAGINATION, HE RE-WORKS EXISTING IMAGES, TRANSFORMING THEM INTO SOMETHING YOU MIGHT NOT EXPECT AT FIRST GLANCE. I LIKE A BIT OF UNPREDICTABILITY.

REVIVAL

THAT 70's SWAG IS BACK. I USED TO OWN A PAIR OF DENIM'S THAT WOULD HAVE LOOKED AT HOME IN THIS TREND UNTIL I GOT EXCITED AND SOLD THEM ON EBAY. NOW I'M ON THE HUNT TO REPLACE THEM. THEY LOOKED A LOT LIKE THESE FLATTERING J BRAND JEANS THAT KOURTNEY WEARS SO WELL. I WANT THEM HIGH WAISTED, TOP TIGHT, WITH A GENTLE BOTTOM KICK, IN AN INDIGO WASH. (OOH THE REGRET OF SELLING THOSE JEANS). OH WELL, OFF WORK TOMORROW, SO I'M HITTING THE STREETS ON A MISSION TO GET MY FLARE-FIX.

SOMETHING TO GO WITH THOSE SHOES

HOW BOUT THIS BABY? A GLEAMING PHARAOH SETS OFF THIS SPARKLY GOLD WAIST BELT COURTESY OF TATTY DEVINE. CINCH IN AN LBD FOR NIGHT OR A FLORAL NUMBER FOR DAY. WORK THAT, TWERK THAT AND DO THAT EGYPTIAN.

MEET AMINA

THESE HARLEQUIN PLATFORMS REMIND ME OF A MIDDLE EASTERN HOLIDAY, A MARKET BAZAR, SHISHA PIPES AND SEX AND THE CITY 2...AVAILABLE FROM OFFICE THIS IS THE ULTIMATE IN A SUMMER-EVENING SEXY-STROLLING SHOE.

4 MIN MASTERPIECE

THANKS TO MY GIRL PRINCESS TOMIWA I HAD THE PLEASURE OF DISCOVERING CAPTIVATING R&B NEWCOMER TIMOTHY BLOOM AND HIS STUNNING NEW SINGLE 'TIL THE END OF TIME'. IN THE VIDEO, WHICH TOOK ME BACK TO D'ANGELO IN 'UNTITLED', TIMOTHY AND HIS FEMALE VOCALIST V. BOZEMAN EMBRACE CLOSELY AS THEY ROTATE ON A TURN-TABLE LIKE A ROMANTIC BRONZE STATUE. A CLEVER CONCEPT AND BEAUTIFULLY SHOT, WITH THAT SHIVERS DOWN THE SPINE EFFECT.

HEY DOLL

MY POST YESTERDAY ABOUT THE DIET COKE 'MANIAC' AD MADE ME THINK OF THE BUG EYED, BIG HEADED BLYTHE DOLL. ORIGINATING FROM THE 70'S (AND BEING IGNORED) THE LONELY DOLLIES FINALLY MADE A NAME FOR THEMSELVES IN 2001 AFTER A WELL NEEDED BOOK RELEASE. GO FIGURE. PRETTY PLASTIC DOLLS IN PRETTY FANTASTIC DRESSES.

IT'S LIKE A JUNGLE SOMETIMES

AT A NETWORKING EVENT THE OTHER DAY DRAKE TUNED INTO HIS SAFARI SIDE WITH A SUPREME ZEBRA JACKET. WITH FULL ON FUZZY WILD HAIR TO MATCH, I THINK DRIZZY EARNED HIS STRIPES WITH THIS ONE.

WEEKEND PLEASURES

THIS WEEKEND I INDULGED IN MANY MOIST AND DELICIOUS SLICES OF JAMAICAN GINGER CAKE (GOOD LOOKIN' OUT JOSHUA) AND SIPPED A COCKTAIL I'VE NEVER TASTED BEFORE, THE ESPRESSO MARTINI. APPARENTLY IT'S THE PERFECT AFTER DINNER DRINK, WHICH HELPED COZ BESTIE AND I HAD JUST SCOFFED. IT WAS A BLEND OF CHILLED ESPRESSO, VODKA AND COFFEE PATRON, FROTHY ON TOP AND SMOOOTH GOING DOWN. A FLAVOURFUL BOOSTER FOR THE WEEK AHEAD. STARBUCKS SHOULD ADD THIS TO THEIR MENU.

SHE'S A MANIAC, MANIAC ON THE FLOOR

TWO THUMBS UP TO THE DIET COKE 'MANIAC' AD WHICH FEATURES A GROUP OF SASSY FEMALES WORKING TOGETHER AT A FASHION MAG. THEY DON'T LET THE HARD WORK GET EM DOWN AND ARE A BREATH OF FRESH AIR ON STRINGS AS THEY (WITH THE HELP OF A CAFFEINE COKE FIX) INJECT PASSION, STYLE AND SPIRIT INTO THEIR 9-5.

FROM FILM TO FASHION

HAILING FROM DENMARK, 26-YEAR-OLD ASTRID ANDERSON IS A HIP-HOP SPORTSWEAR LUXE DESIGNER. HER A/W 2011 COLLECTION WAS INSPIRED BY THE SPIKE LEE MOVIE 'DO THE RIGHT THING' AND WAS A TONGUE IN CHEEK REFERENCE OF HOW STREET CULTURE HAS BECOME A VERY LUCRATIVE MARKET. PAISLEY PRINTS/CAMO/SNAKESKIN/FUR AND SHELL SUITS FEATURED HEAVILY, WITH ACIDIC TONES POPPING UP OVER RICH CHOCOLATE SKIN. I CAN'T SEE THE LADS SPORTING THIS LOOK ON THE BASKETBALL COURT BUT ASTRID'S INNOVATIVE DESIGNS HAVE PUT THE SLAM IN THE DUNK.

HOUSE OF PORN

UK MC SKEPTA HAS JUST RELEASED THE MUSIC VID FOR HIS TRACK 'ALL OVER THE HOUSE'. IT'S EXPLICIT TO SAY THE LEAST AND FEATURES PARIS ROCKSXXX, A UK BASED PORN STAR. IT'S BASICALLY ABOUT HAVING SEX IN EVERY AREA, CORNER AND SPACE IN THE HOUSE AND INCASE YOU HAVEN'T DONE THAT BEFORE, DON'T WORRY THIS VIDEO WILL SHOW YOU HOW. THERE ARE NO CENSORS, BLURRY BITS OR PIXELATED SHOTS, SO ERM GET UNDER 18'S OUT OF THE HOUSE.

THIS AIN'T JUST ANY HOOD

RELEASED TOMORROW, ANUVAHOOD IS AN URBAN COMEDY FILM SET IN THE HEART OF WEST LONDON (BIG-UP) MADE BY AND STARRING ADAM DEACON. IT'S ABOUT A DUDE WHO THINKS HE'S GOT SWAGGERIFIC SWAGGER BUT IN REALITY HE'S A PURE WASTEMAN. NOTHING IN HIS LIFE SEEMS TO BE GOING HIS WAY - WITH NO MONEY AND NO PUSSY HE SEEMS TO THINK THE ANSWER LIES IN SELLING WEED. GENIUS. HIS MISSION IS TO 'GET RICH, OR CRY TRYING'. TALES FROM THE WESTSIDE, I LOVE A LOCAL FLICK.

P.Y.T.

HELP ME. I SHOULD BE OUT DRINKING MOJITOS BUT I'M NEEDING TO SHARE WITH YOU THIS MASSACHUSETTS BORN N RAISED MODEL, 20-YEAR-OLD TAEJAHN TAYLOR. WHAT A GORGEOUS NAME FIRSTLY, SAY IT WITH ME, 'TAEJAHN' AND SECONDLY WELL, HE'S JUST LICKABLE.

HAVE A BREAK, HAVE A COCKTAIL.

THE BEATLES SAID IT BEST WHEN THEY SAID,'IT'S BEEN A HARD DAYS NIGHT AND I'VE BEEN WORKING LIKE A DOG'. TOMORROW, AFTER WORK, COCKTAILS. 

MY GIRL CHAR (CHARLOTTE TO YOU LOT) AND THOSE OVAL LOVLIES AGAIN, THIS TIME BARRY M 'MUSHROOM' WITH RED HEART NAIL ART. SHE'S GOT A WHOLE 'LOTTIE' LOVE TO GIVE.  

STRIKE A POSE

SORRY GUYS WOULD HAVE COME SOONER BUT WORK HAS HAD ME HOSTAGE. HERE'S  RIH RIH ON HER VERY FIRST US VOGUE COVER ALL DAZZLING AND MERMAID LIKE IN A CHANEL DRESS THAT LOOKS LIKE ANOTHER SKIN AND A HEAD SHOT WITH AN FIERY RED ELVIS LIP CURL. WHEN THE BARBADIAN BEAUTY WAS ASKED ON HER FASHION VIEWS SHE TOLD THE PEOPLE:

"IT'S BECOME MORE ABOUT TAKING A RISK. WHEN I AM PUTTING LOOKS TOGETHER, I DARE MYSELF TO MAKE SOMETHING WORK. I ALWAYS LOOK FOR THE MOST INTERESTING SILHOUETTE OR SOMETHING THAT'S A LITTLE OFF, BUT I HAVE TO FIGURE IT OUT. I HAVE TO MAKE IT ME. I THINK THAT'S THE THRILL IN FASHION."

WHEN NISHA MET SAMANTHA

WHILST IN BROOKLYN, IN A NAIL SALON, ON MY BIRTHDAY, I MET A FASHION DESIGNER. HER NAME WAS SAMANTHA PLEET. WE SAT SIDE BY SIDE WAITING FOR OUR NAILS TO DRY. HER'S WERE BLACK AND MINE WERE NUDE, SHE ALSO HAD GREAT BOUNCY 'BANGS'. SHE TOLD ME SHE WAS ABOUT TO GO TO PARIS. WE SPOKE ABOUT FASHION, SHOPPING AND THE STREETS OF NEW YORK. BEFORE SHE LEFT, SHE BID ME A HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND WROTE HER WEBSITE ON THE NAIL SALON CARD. I LOOKED HER UP WHEN I GOT BACK TO LONDON AND YOU GUYS SHOULD LOOK HER UP TOO. I WAS INSTANTLY TAKEN BY HER VINTAGE INSPIRED WHIMSICAL COLLECTION, INJECTED WITH A ROMANTIC MODERN TWIST. NEXT TIME YOU'RE IN A NEW YORK NAIL SALON, DON'T BLINK OR YOU MIGHT JUST MISS SOMETHING SPECIAL.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

MY SISTER AND I SAT DOWN LAST NIGHT AND DECIDED TO STICK ON A 50 CENT DVD MY UNCLE LENT US. 'GUN'. 50 CENT AND GUNS?! WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT. THE MOVIE FOCUSES AROUND THE USUAL DRUG/CRIME/POLICE SCENE BUT ALSO FEATURES A RATHER HOT N HEAVY SEX SCENE WITH NONE OTHER THAN MESMERISING 23-YEAR-OLD 90210 ACTRESS ANNALYNNE McCORD. IT'S A VERY BUSINESS AND PLEASURE, WASTE NO TIME, RAVISH EACH OTHER ON THE BED, GRIZZLY KINDA SCENE. I LIKED HER LBD AND WHEN SHE FLUNG IT OFF I LIKED HER BLACK SULTRY SET AND WHEN SHE TOOK THAT OFF, WELL, IT WAS ALL GUNS BLAZING.

FOOD AND LIQUOR

TONIGHT I WHOLEHEARTEDLY LOOK FORWARD TO A TIRAMISU. A FAVE DESSERT OF MINE, AFTER CHEESECAKE OH AND THAT CADBURY TRIFLE. IT'S AN ITALIAN TREAT LAYERED WITH BISCUIT/COFFEE/MASCARPONE/COCOA AND LIQUOR. BELLISSIMO.

HOME ON A SATURDAY NIGHT

...I MEAN IT'S ALRIGHT. BUT, IT WOULD BE NICE TO CURL UP ON THE COUCH WITHOUT A CARE IN THE WORLD WITH A CLOSE COMPANION (CUE EXAMPLE) KHALIFA AND ROSE.

LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON

I JUST WATCHED 'THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS' THE HEART WARMING, TEAR JERKING (I CRIED) BIOGRAPHICAL MOVIE ABOUT A MAN STRIVING TO FIND HAPPINESS IN HIS LIFE AND THE STRUGGLES HE FACES ALONG THE WAY. FEATURING REAL-LIFE FATHER AND SON, WILL AND JADEN SMITH, THESE TWO SHARED A TENDER ON-SCREEN CHEMISTRY THAT WAS A JOY TO WATCH. THE MORAL OF THE STORY, AS WILLY SO WELL DEPICTED: WORK HARD, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, CHASE YOUR DREAMS AND NEVER GIVE UP.

FRUIT SALAD

SPRING SUMMER IS GOING BANANAS, LIKE, LITERALLY. DESIGNERS (L TO R) MOSCHINO, PRADA, STELLA McCARTNEY AND WUNDERKIND ALL SHOWED OFF THEIR HEALTHY OPTIONS ON THE RUNWAYS BUT MY PICK OF THE BUNCH ARE THESE CHARLOTTE OLYMPIA HEELS. SO VERY COPA, COPACABANA.

SOMETIMES HIS WORDS JUST HYPNOTIZE ME

14 YEARS ON AFTER HIS DEATH, ICONIC 'RECOGNISE HIS VOICE ANYWHERE' RAPPER NOTORIOUS B.I.G. IS FAR FROM FORGOTTEN. I LOVE HIS RASPY RAP, EASY FLOW AND RAW STORY-TELLING ABILITY. R.I.P. CHRISTOPHER WALLACE.

SAW THIS CARD AND THOUGHT OF YOU

I WANTED TO SHARE MY FAVE BDAY CARD WITH YOU GUYS. IT WAS FROM MY GIRL 'KEYZ'. ERM, JUST TO CONFIRM IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MY FONDNESS FOR THE MOVIE, ALTHOUGH IT HAS A KILLER SOUNDTRACK. IT'S MY MOVES YOU SEE, BABY AIN'T GOT NOTHING ON ME.

WITH EYES LIKE THE THE OCEAN

THIS LITTLE GEM WAS AMONGST THE RANDOM POSTCARDS I PICKED UP ALONG MY TRAVELS IN NY. PAINTED BY ARTIST MARION PECK, THIS LOST LOOKING KITTY HAS THAT 'DON'T STARE, YOU MIGHT FALL IN LOVE' FEELING ABOUT IT.

1 EXTREME, 2 ANOTHER

JUST CAME ACROSS THIS SUNDAY TIMES STYLE COVER OF ESSEX GIRL JESSIE J GOING GHETTO FABO IN VINTAGE VERSACE SPRAY ONS AND A MOSCHINO LOGO BELT (IT'S THERE I PROMISE). MEANWHILE STATESIDE, KOURTNEY ROCKS HER LETTERS AROUND TOWN AND GIVES IT A FAR MORE SUBTLE YUMMY MUMMY TWIST.

I'M GOING OUT WITH MY GIRLS TONIGHT, TO IN EFFECT, CELEBRATE MY BIRTHDAY ON LONDON SOIL. AFTER THE BIG CITY, BRIGHT LIGHTS AND ALL THAT JAZZ, KANYE'S TRACK 'ALL OF THE LIGHTS' SEEMS APPROPRIATE AND HAS THAT FEEL G.O.O.D. FACTOR. IT'LL CERTAINLY HELP PERK ME UP. I HOPE THE DJ SPINS THAT RECORD AND A GENEROUS DOUBLE DISARONNO WOULDN'T GO AMISS FOR GOOD MEASURE.
