I am a fan of Vogue and other high fashion publications but i am very offended about the whole "Black Italia"! This should not be a big subject on every blog or website but it should be a regular thing in magazines and runways to see African American models! What makes it worst that it was an undercover thing until Obama really became a factor in the presidential race! Is it now that people realize that there is no black faces...sorry that it foolishness! I am a fashion student and this is a lack for color in my classroom! People don't realize that black has always and will always be beautiful! How can you look at a beautiful sister, with a shape as a Coca Cola body, and with beautiful hair and call her ugly! This is why the baddest super models of all time is black models...really how many girls you know that can walk like Naomi, have the bone structure like Iman, or even have lips like Chanel Iman? Even the late YSL famously said that "My dream woman is Iman" and she was the house model for Yves Saint Laurent's African Queen couture collection. I hope this whole black vogue thing would not be a fad but it will turn into a classic thing to have more black faces.
So for a long time..i didn't like Rihanna! I thought she was a talentless, long weave, and coconut until i she changed up her music and her stylist (huge plus)! She cut her hair and started to take talking lesson! Then i got my Rihanna vibes...i just cut my hair similar to hers and i think her man is cute ! Her new video "Take A Bow" is the perfect break up/stylist song! It is move or less a fashionista get over song after someone does them wrong ...any that is not my point! The point is the simplicity of a black wife beater tank, red jacket, jeans, and heels which is really down to earth! My theme for all is/one of my personal theories is that "simplicity is the art that i wish not to conform it...it the best way of life but Ms. Rihanna proved that simplicity is the art that she can conform to! Even though her jewerly cost an arm and a leg, but her outfit was perfect for it!
Heels of a Fashionista presents Yellow Brick Road,an addition , London Summer Look from Top Shop! Yellow Brick Road is a special that we do on the major fashion capitals of the world. My visit to London in March was amazing and i was able to talk to people and find out their opinion on fashion. Alot of people said that "they are very comfortable" and because of that they have "more freedom to be creative"! My personal opinion is that people are willing to experiment with their outfits, not a lot of name( label) dropping, and the most popular stores are Top Shop and Primark! Summer is all about fedoras, bright summer dress, skirts, graphic/basic t-shirt but under all it is about expressing yourself.
Designer, Yves Henri Donat Dave Mathieu-Saint-Laurent was born August 1, 1936 and passed away today at the age of 71. Mr. Laurent passed away in his Paris home and if you do not know who YSL is...well he is the designer for YSL! Important Information about Mr. Saint-Laurent During the 1960s and 1970s, the firm popularized fashion trends such as the beatnik look, safari jackets for men and women, tight pants and tall, thigh-high boots, including the creation of arguably the most famous classic tuxedo suit for women in 1966, Le Smoking suit.
I have not found out what was the cause of his death but i send my regards to the Saint-Laurent family!
