I got the pleasure of taking pictures of one of my many muses: Charity. Even the name is iconic.

More of the look underneath the hood…

African American fashion is evolving into a new phase. Call it the Obama effect or Rosewood Movement, but lately there’s been a change across  the sartorial landscape. Men are replacing gold chains for bow ties. Instead of wearing white Jordans, guys are satisfied slipping on a pair of oxfords. The Brooklyn Circus and the gents at The Street Etiquette are major forces in creating this dapper change.

Here they showcase “the Black Ivy” style.

Watches. Timepieces. Nowadays, time can be found anywhere: on  your iphone, on your personal computer, on a wall, on your microwave, etc. Watches have become more of an accessory than a tool.

Before we talk about the content,  can I just say the visionary who thought up the two covers is genius. Not only am I in awe of Kid Cudi’s “breaking into a nebula” shot, but the Rosewood styling is crisp. Nicki Minaj’s shot is minimalism at its best. For someone who usually wears pink and green wigs and outlandish outfits, it is nice to see a somewhat toned down Nicki.

Sidenote: She keeps getting gorgeous everyday (#groupietalk).

Complex also posted the interviews with both artists, where Cudi talks about his former cocaine habit and goes a bit in on Wale. Here is a short snippet.

Side by side, Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 collection is similar to his Fall 2009 collection. The colors that he uses for both are highly saturated to an extent that it can be overwhelming to the eyes.

Speaking of flowers, they tend to appear in almost every piece as some sort of ornament.

I’ve been on  hiatus ever since school has started back up, but I’ve still been keeping my eye on what’s been going on in New York’s Fashion Week. Out of all the shows that I watched, I was initially most impressed by the work of Yigal Azrouel’s.  I enjoyed the overall production of the models’ appearance. The neon orange eye makeup with the pulled back slick hair gave an alien-like appearance to the models. With the addition of the simplistic nude colored pieces, the line looked like it could have been taken out of a Star Wars movie.

Screw a blonde ambition. Brunettes are tired and boring. Nowadays, it’s all about red heads. Marloes Horst is bringing back that fire to the model world. Here is the dutch beauty’s spread in October’s Jackie.

When you think of Spring and Summer, most think of bright colors that stem from the blossomed flowers: not Krane. The label has instead decided to primarily use the colors grey and black with their Spring and Summer 2011 line. It’s not at all a bad thing, since the design is so crisp, it throws the color scheme out of the mind.

Lookbook’s should be food for the eyes. Actual Pain knows this and has offered a buffet of looks for their Fall+ Winter 2010 collection. It’s a mix of tank tops, sweaters, t-shirts,  and light weight jackets that are perfect for summer, especially summer in Atlanta.
