Ooooooh weee! Fashion! Fashion! Fashion! David Bowie said it best… Sometimes I have a week where I’m just fashion crazed and this was one of them! I attended he show by the fabulous Korto Momolu. The show was elegant and sophisticated, I loved it! Pics from the night are here! After waiting forever I finally got a photo with the Liberian designer, the L’s we’re making in the photo are for “Liberia!!!” The goodie bag was ¬†amazing as well complete with hair products, jewelry, a t-shirt and a box of Cheerios! ¬†I gotta celebrate Korto Momolu’s promotion with Cheerios to help feed local hungry! Good stuff! PS-I was rocking the colorblock craze everyone’s been into, not sure if it worked for me with the extra shiny hair but I liked the outfit when I bought it LOL. Muah!

Fashion Week: Saycon at Mychael Knight

Things started nicely for me this week, in that I’ve been writing new songs, and
have great friends in town this week! Its pretty amazing, my girl Day Hill of
Buddhaflyy and her whole team included her business partner Keisha Mackie-Coleman came up from Atlanta to do the Mychael Knight show on Saturday night. The quality of his clothing is amazing, I hope to get something made by him asap! The show was
flawless and makeup was beautiful and the evening was so much fun! My friend
@CharlesBrowning met me at the soho event fresh from another show his cousin
Olivia was in. She’s an up and coming model, the 3 of us have been kickin’ it
since fashion week began. I won’t front, I had the ultimate fan-out moment when I
realized Trina was sitting across from me on the front row! LOL everyone knows
me for singing love songs or doing theater but I’m from the dirty south and
Trina is one of my favs! Also in the house was celebrity hair stylist Terrence Davidson, VIBE editor Daytwon Thomas, and supermodel, Jessica White, who wore the finale look on the run way. Coming up I’ll be attending Edwing D’angelo
and B. Micheal and I’m looking forward to it!

Make-Up artist to the stars: Day Hill of Buddhaflyy

This week I reconnected with my friend Day! She’s known as a makeup artist, stylist, but she’s also an actress and writer. We attended highschool together and were in Freddie Hendricks’ YEA! As a stylist Day helped me to re-create the Vanity Six/ Apollonia Six look in my retro-music video for “Recognize”! Currently her work can best be seen all over the world as the make-up artist who gives you the ultra girly glam of hip-hop recording artist Nicki Minaj and the soft and natural look of Chili of TLC whose reality show, “What Chilli Wants” is airing on VH1. She even took time to “beat” my face for an interview I did for Liberian Seabreeze Journal I’ve included photos from that day! Tonight Nicki Minaj will be a guest on Saturday Night Live! It will be a great night, our other classmate Keenan Thompson has invited us to come hang! I’m looking forward to it. If you don’t know Day Hill, you will!

Dreams do come true!!!I represented the cast of Fela! during fashion week at the Manhattan Pavillion. This week was action packed with a great time of beginning rehearsals and my official modeling, cat walking, heel clicking premiere! I walked in the show presented by Elle magazine, Oral B (hence the toothbrushes in the background pics). It was curated by Caravan!
