IMAAN HAMMAM x SELF SERVICE MAGAZINE

"I FEEL MOST SEXY WHEN I WAKE UP. MY HAIR IS MESSY AND GOING EVERY DIRECTION HAHA."

BOOM FOR REAL

YESTERDAY I VISITED LONDON'S FIRST LARGE SCALE EXHIBIT OF JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT. THIS WAS A BIG DEAL. BRINGING TOGETHER OVER 100 WORKS OF THIS TALENTED YOUNG HIP ARTIST, PHOTOGRAPHY WASN'T ALLOWED BUT WE SIMPLY COULDN'T RESIST SNEAKING A FEW SHOTS AMONG THE BRAVE BRUSHSTROKES. WE WERE TRANSPORTED TO THE DOWNTOWN NEW YORK ART SCENE AND BASKED IN BASQUIAT'S GLORY.

A$AP ROCKY x ES MAGAZINE

"THEY’VE BEEN MISSING ME, THEY’VE BEEN WAITING FOR ME, THEY NEED SOME NEW MUSIC, THEY NEED SOME NEW SOUNDS, NEW WAVES, NEW SWAG, NEW EVERYTHING. AND WHO’S THE MAN YOU GO TO FOR THAT? YOURS TRULY. SO I’M BACK, LIKE I NEVER LEFT."

STARFUCKS

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL COFFEE DAY. I LIKE MY CUP STEAMY. 

LICENSE AND REGISTRATION PLEASE

SINCE I FLEW THE NEST I HAVEN'T DRIVEN AND I MISS IT SOMETIMES. TO COMPENSATE, I POSE IN FRONT OF COOL ASS CAMO CARS. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW SAUDI WOMEN MUST FEEL HAVING NEVER BEEN ALLOWED TO DRIVE FULL STOP. THAT IS UNTIL NOW - THE GOVERNMENT RIGHTLY ENDED THE REIGN ON TUESDAY, AS THE ONLY NATION ON THE GLOBE WHERE FEMALES WERE FORBIDDEN FROM JUMPING BEHIND THE WHEEL OF A WHIP. START STOPPING TRAFFIC LADIES.

A TRIBUTE TO GIANNI

THIS IS A CELEBRATION OF A GENIUS. THIS IS A CELEBRATION OF AN ICON. THIS IS A CELEBRATION OF MY BROTHER. THOSE WERE THE OPENING LINES OF THE SS18 VERSACE SHOW IN MILAN. THE CLOSING SAW DONATELLA STRUT ARM IN ARM WITH GIANNI'S CREME DE LA CREME OF SUPERMODEL MUSES. ALL CLAD IN LIQUID GOLD, CELEBRATING A GOLDEN OLDIE COLLECTION.

RIP HEF

"LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO BE LIVING SOMEBODY ELSE'S DREAM. THE MAJOR CIVILIZING FORCE IN THE WORLD IS NOT RELIGION, IT IS SEX. IN MY WILDEST DREAMS, I COULD NOT HAVE IMAGINED A SWEETER LIFE."

ALICIA KEYS x ELLE BRAZIL

"IT CAN SEEM SILLY, BUT I THINK THAT MANY OF US ARE CAUGHT IN THIS TRAP. WE WORRY ABOUT WHAT THE OTHERS ARE THINKING ABOUT US, AND WE FORGET TO THINK BY OURSELVES. ACTUALLY, THIS IS NOT ONLY ABOUT USING MAKEUP OR NOT. IT IS MORE ABOUT LIVING, BEING AS YOU FEEL REALLY COMFORTABLE AND EXPLORING ALL OF IT."

WORDS OF WISDOM

SO I'VE BEEN COMPLETELY OUT OF ACTION THIS PAST WEEK AFTER WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTIONS. I NEVER ANTICIPATED THE EXCRUCIATING PAIN THAT WOULD FOLLOW A PRETTY ROUTINE PROCEDURE, HOWEVER ONE OF MY TEETH WAS PARTICULARLY AWKWARD. GROWING SIDEWAYS, IT REQUIRED SOME FLESH DISSECTING/BONE REMOVING/GUM STITCHING. I THEN WENT ON TO DEVELOP 'DRY SOCKET' FOLLOWED CLOSELY BY AN INFECTION. IT'S BEEN FACE INFLATING JAW DROPPING STUFF.

BLAZER GANG

I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO JOIN A FRIEND FOR LONDON FASHION WEEK THIS YEAR. WE SKIPPED AROUND LONDON SIPPING PLENTY BUBBLES, ATTENDED A FEW PRESENTATIONS AND SAT FROW AT THE SHOWS. TAKING INSPO FROM RECENT LOOKS OF RIHANNA, ADRIANA LIMA, KELLY ROWLAND AND HAILEY BALDWIN -I CHOSE TO GO WITH A SEXY RELAXED LOOK. TEAMING A HERITAGE CHECK TOPSHOP BLAZER WITH 90s LEVIS JEANS AND THE ALL IMPORTANT 'DESIGNER' INJECTIONS OF A CLASSIC NYLON PRADA BAG AND A HINT OF SOME CALVIN KLEIN CLEAVAGE. 

SHOE IT FOR THE GRAM

I INSTANTLY DROOLED OVER THESE SPORTY CHIC ANKLE STRAP LOGO HEELS FROM VERSACE. DOUBLE TAP, I'D NEVER FORGET TO USE THESE RUBBERS.

FENTY BEAUTY

"MAKE-UP IS THERE FOR YOU TO HAVE FUN WITH; IT SHOULD NEVER FEEL LIKE PRESSURE. IT SHOULD NEVER FEEL LIKE A UNIFORM. FEEL FREE TO TAKE CHANCES, AND TAKE RISKS, AND DARE TO DO SOMETHING NEW OR DIFFERENT."

CARNI 17

THE SURPRISINGLY DECENT BRITISH WEATHER SWAYED ME TO PASS THROUGH NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL THIS YEAR. I WORE AN ADAM SELMAN INSPIRED SHEER FLORAL BLOUSE WITH MANDATORY DENIM PUM PUM SHORTS. IT WAS A FLOWERY, FEATHERY, FAT ASS FUN TIME.

KIM KARDASHIAN WEST x HARPER'S BAZAAR

"MORE POWER TO THE MOMS THAT LOOK REALLY GOOD, WORK REALLY HARD, DO WHAT THEY CAN SO THAT THEY STILL FEEL SEXY, STILL FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES. I DON’T THINK FOR A SECOND THAT BECAUSE YOU BECOME A MOM YOU CAN’T BE SEXY ANY MORE."

SK AIR

YESTERDAY SAW THE LAUNCH OF A MOROCCAN INSPIRED NIKE AIR MAX 97 BROUGHT TO US BY GRIME ARTIST SKEPTA. WITH A GLIMMERING IRIDESCENT UPPER, BOY BETTER KNOW - THESE ARE SPICY LIKE THE SOUK.

SHE'S BAD

WE REMEMBERED THE BIRTH AND THE DEATH OF TWO SIGNIFICANT FIGURES IN HISTORY EARLIER THIS WEEK. HERE'S TO TWO OF THE BADDEST - MJ & HIS DIRTY DIANA.

TEYANA TAYLOR x GQ

"ISSA COVER GIRL. YOU COULD LOOK AT IT! AS LONG AS U DON'T GRAB ITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!"

POETIC PUNANI

I'M ASHAMED TO SAY I'VE NEVER WATCHED POETIC JUSTICE PROPERLY FROM START TO FINISH, THAT WAS UNTIL YESTERDAY. MY FAVOURITE PART HAD TO BE PHENOMENAL WOMAN JANET JACKSON, AKA JUSTICE, EXCHANGING SOME STRAIGHTS UPS WITH TUPAC. IT WAS FRAGRANT.  

I WEAR THE TROUSERS

FINALLY WORE MY SHEER PLEATED ZARA TROUSERS LAST NIGHT. IT WAS ONE OF THE ITEMS THAT WAS HANGING IN MY WARDROBE FOR AGES, TAGS ON AND JUST LUSTING FOR THE RIGHT OCCASION - IN THIS CASE MY COUSIN'S BIRTHDAY DINNER. I PAIRED THEM WITH A SIMPLE BANDEAU AND MY MOSCHINO CAMO CHAIN BAG. HIP HIP HOORAY.

STUNTIN LIKE MY ZADDY

FRESH OFF THE SUCCESS OF BODAK YELLOW AND STILL CLIMBING, CARDI B TREATS HERSELF TO A FRESHLY SQUEEZED ORANGE BENTLEY. STRAIGHT UP CASH PAYMENT, SHE DON'T DANCE NOW SHE MAKE MONEY MOVES.

I KNOW YOU WANNA SEE ME NAKED

RIHANNA WAS A BEAUTIFUL BAJAN BIRD OF PARADISE AT THIS YEARS CROP OVER AND CHRIS BROWN WANTS TO DO IT OVER *EYES EMOJI*

TASTE FILM

ON SATURDAY EVENING I PUT ON MY GOOD JEANS, GRABBED MY LV AND UBERED MY ASS TO A SEX & THE CITY MOVIE SCREENING. IT WAS SERVED UP WITH A 5* FOUR COURSE MEAL AND CARRIE WORTHY COCKTAILS COURTESY OF TASTE FILM. IF YOU KNOW ME, YOU KNOW I'M VERY OBSESSED WITH THE GIRLS SO THIS TICKED ALL MY BOXES. THE MENU WAS CLEVERLY CATERED TO SCENES IN THE FILM WHERE DISHES AND DRINKS ARRIVED ON CUE. AS SAMANTHA WOULD SAY, IT WAS 'FABULOUS'.

MI SOON COME

DONNING THE T-SHIRT FOR JAMAICAN INDEPENDENCE DAY. STILL VERY HIGH ON MY WISH LIST OF PLACES TO STAMP IN MY PASSPORT.

OLD SCHOOL SUNDAYS

THEY SAY 'IF THE LOVE DOESN'T FEEL LIKE 90s R&B I DON'T WANT IT'. I TUNE INTO DJ TREVOR NELSON ON BBC 1XTRA EVERY SUNDAY WHERE HE BRINGS THIS STATEMENT TO LIFE. HIS PLAYLIST NEVER FAILS TO STIR ME UP.

LOYALTY

I SAID I'M GEEKED AND I'M FIRED UP. ALL I WANT TONIGHT IS JUST TO GET HIGH UP. GIRL YOU LOOK SO GOOD IT'S TO DIE FOR. OOH THAT PUSSY GOOD IT'S TO DIE FOR.

GIRLS TRIP

I WENT TO SEE THIS FLICK FRIDAY NIGHT WITH MY GIRL NO LESS. IT WAS A FILTHY, FRIENDLY, LAUGH A MINUTE STORY WITH PLENTY OF (NON CORNY) ESSENCE AT THE FEST.

NEELAM GILL x STYLIST

"AS A MODEL, YOU NOT ONLY HAVE TO BE SELLING CLOTHES, YOU HAVE TO BE A PERSON THAT PEOPLE ENJOY BEING AROUND AND SOMETIMES THAT’S REALLY EXHAUSTING, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU’RE GOING THROUGH SHIT IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE. ESPECIALLY WITH ME, I CAN’T BE FAKE - IT’S REALLY HARD."

FLOWER POWER

MY DAD GROWS THE MOST FRAGRANT ROSES IN THE GARDEN AND WHENEVER HE VISITS HE BRINGS ME A SINGLE STEM. IT ALWAYS LIFTS MY MOOD AND FILLS THE ROOM WITH HOPE.

STEP IN THE NAME OF LOVE

ON TUESDAY I ATTENDED A SPECIAL OCCASION AT LONDON'S EXCEL AND CELEBRATING A DIAMOND JUBILEE WITHIN MY RELIGION. MOST GUESTS DONNED A TRADITIONAL INDIAN OUTFIT BUT I FOLLOWED THE ORANGE BRICK ROAD AND WORE JACQUARD-WEAVE COCKTAIL DRESS BY H&M. I MAY NOT HAVE FOUND MY PROM KING, BUT I FELT LIKE A PROM QUEEN THAT EVENING.

ALL EYEZ ON ME

HAD A FAMILY CINEMA DATE LAST WEEKEND AND SAW THE NEW 2PAC FLICK. I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS AS BAD AS THE REVIEWS MADE OUT. THE SOUNDTRACK OBVIOUSLY OVERSHADOWED THE WAY THE STORY WAS TOLD, WE COULD NOT KEEP STILL IN OUR WESTSIDE SEATS AND LEFT WISHING HE WAS STILL LIVING HIS (THUG) LIFE.

LE WEEKEND

THAT FACE YOU MAKE WHEN YOU'RE.

HELLO WORLD

NOTHING LESS THAN A MAJESTIC FLORAL WELCOME TO RUMI & SIR CARTER.

FIELDS OF GOLD

EVERYONE HAS AN INNER BEYONCÉ. MINE WAS UNLEASHED ON FRIDAY NIGHT WHEN I WORE MY ROBERTO CAVALLI MINI DUPE. HOLD UP, THEY DON'T LOVE YOU LIKE I LOVE YOU.

ME U & HENNESSY

THIS AD FEATURING 2PAC & MELYSSA FORD KINDA SUMS UP MY WEEKEND *SMIRK* THAT DRINK HAD ME FEELING RIGHT.

DIDDY x ES MAGAZINE

"I UNWIND BY JUST TAKING SOME TIME OFF…TRAVELLING AROUND THE WORLD, EATING SOME GOOD FOOD - JUST DISCONNECTING FOR A MINUTE. BECAUSE RIGHT NOW IN THIS AGE EVERYTHING IS SO OVERWHELMING. IT WON’T JUST TAKE YOUR BRAIN IT WILL TAKE YOUR SOUL. AND I WON’T PERMIT IT TO TAKE MY SOUL."

STRAPPED IN

FRIDAY NIGHT I CAME OVER ALL RIHANNA AND WORE MY NEWNEW DIOR STRAPPY HEELS TO A PARTY IN THE DIRTY SOUTH. THE ONLY WAY TO ROCK THESE BARELY THERE BONDAGE HEELS WAS WITH A FRENCH MANI AND A TOE RING.

GOAT

8 YEARS TODAY SINCE WE LOST MJ, THE MAN WHO'S MUSIC WILL PULL YOU OUT YOUR BLUES. 

عيد مبارك

RAISING A DELICIOUS GLASS OF MINT TEA TO ALL THOSE CELEBRATING EID TODAY.

WILD THOUGHTS

WE THE BEST MUSIC SOUGHT OUT SANTANA AND DROPPED ANOTHER ONE.

501

LEVIS 501 SHORTS FOR A FIVER. BARGAIN OF THE DAY, BOOTY OF THE DAY.

BELLA HADID x NIKE CORTEZ

"THE CORTEZ IS AMAZING ON ITS OWN, BUT TO BE ABLE TO PUT IT WITH ANY OUTFIT IS SO COOL. YOU CAN MIX AND MATCH IT WITH A BLACK DRESS OR LEVIS OR SWEATPANTS - WHATEVER YOU WANT. I PROBABLY HAVE FIFTY PAIRS OF SNEAKERS. I NEED TO START DONATING THEM, I FEEL BAD HAVING THAT MANY."

HOKUSAI

FINALLY MADE IT DOWN TO THE BRITISH MUSEUM LAST SATURDAY AND RODE THE GREAT WAVE BY HOKUSAI. THE MASTERPIECE WAS WAAAY SMALLER THAN I EXPECTED IN REALITY BUT THIS OFFERING FROM JAPAN'S MOST FAMOUS AND INFLUENTIAL ARTIST WAS BY NO MEANS ANY LESS ENTRANCING.

RIP PRODIGY

HEY LUV I WANNA HOLD YOU AND TALK TO YOU, PUT MY ARM AROUND YOUR SHOULDER AND WALK WITCHU.

PEACHES & SCREAM

I'M A LITTLE OBSESSED WITH THE ITV2 SHOW LOVE ISLAND AND HAVE BEEN TUNING IN RELIGIOUSLY SINCE IT STARTED LAST WEEK. I COULDN'T BELIEVE MY EYES WHEN ON THURSDAY I GOT AN INSTA DOUBLE TAP FROM #TEAMKEM MY MOST DROOL WORTHY CONTESTANT. IT SEEMS ESSEX LAD KEM CETINAY WOULD APPROVE OF THE HOUSE OF CB 'CALLIAH' BANDAGE DRESS. EVERYTHING WAS PEACHY AFTER THAT.

FEMINIST POST?

AMBER AIN'T BEATING AROUND THE (ROSE) BUSH.

KAN-YAY

HARDER, BETTER, FASTER, STRONGER. KANYE WEST IS 40.

HAILEY BALDWIN x MAXIM

"CELEBRITY RELATIONSHIPS ARE DEFINITELY EASIER, YOU'RE NEVER WORRIED WHETHER THEY’RE ONLY HANGING OUT WITH YOU BECAUSE THEY WANT TO GET ATTENTION OR BE SEEN? IT CAN BE WEIRD FOR SOMEBODY WHO'S NEVER BEEN IN THIS WORLD BEFORE TO BE SUCKED INTO IT. DATING IS WEIRD, BUT IT'S SO FUN."
