HAUTE Newz: Anna Owns Your Wretched Soul!

Well, NY Daily News has named Anna Wintour #1 on it’s Fashion’s 50 most powerful list AS IF any of you were thinking it was Tyra Banks and her lace front wig.  I just think with all that power and strength she weilds,  couldn’t she threaten some stylist life to give her a new do?  I mean that bob is sooooo dead,  crows are starting to peck at it, now it’s got the rigormortis.  She also needs a personality coach for that cunty, crabcake disposition……….and some nourishment for them brittle bones.  How in the British Invasioned Hail did a crumpet poppin’,  tea sipper become the ruler in American fashiondom? 
There are more dictators and creative oppressive figures…………it’s like a to-do list for a fashion purist with a high powered assassins rifle and free time!
2) Patrick Robinson – Saviour of GAP
3) Marc Jacobs – WHY!?
4) Giselle – Of Fudgin’ Course
5) Mayor Bloomberg – Why isn’t he number one?

SO Haute Right Now: Michelle & Solange Killin Yawl With Aspirations


Y’know my friend Chelsea refers to Michelle in passing by saying, “Beyonce,  What’s Her Face (Kelly) & No Name (Michelle) and worse than that she calls Solange the “other one” or “the one Daddy forgot”,  but NAY I SAY!  Both of these young ladies are stepping out as style trendsetters and taking refreshing chances in their music,  trying to give the people somethin’ worth looking forward to but they both are stuck in that, “She ain’t Beyonce” zone.

I don’t care what you people think,  I love Michelle and Solange.  I think more people need to give them a chance and not just becuz they both have a great set of groceries,  but becuz they have something great to offer and not just great back-up for Beyonce’s gyratin’ love cakes.  So I say if Daddy Knowles allowed them out of the basement to release projects, then by God we should support them so that they can buy back their freedom just like any other self respecting slave.  Afterall,  isn’t it the Christian way?  C’mon………*WWOD* What Would Oprah Do?! 

I know one thing both of these girls is servin’ yawl silly DOWN with that $1500 wash and wear premium strand Korean Yaky,  Stylin’ on yawl girls like Usain Bolt!

Editorials Iz HAUTE: Flashing Lights



RWD is freaking Time Square with an editorial shoot by Jamie Nelson and styled by the unmistakable signature of Richard Shoyemi.  What a flashy and glam layout for a magazine with heavy hip-hop content.  It just goes to show,  you never know where you’ll find your fix.  So many genres are beginning to blend and compliment each other,  how promising.   I guess thugs enjoy gold lame and oversized BoHo bags just like every other red blooded American male.
