Nothing like a dose of Bradshaw

After a busy day on set myself and Edgar Anthony, one of most amazing make-up artists I know, decided to surprise celebrity stylist Mr.Bradshaw at his new showroom downtown LA. Fashion party anyone? What I thought would be a quick "Hi and goodbye" turned into a " OMG, I NEED THAT" appointment. Clever Mr. Bradshaw lured me in with, of course, the new Chanel belt. I cried when I had to depart from it but was at ease knowing everything in his showroom is completely rentable and at a very reasonable price.

Rockstars & Angels collide?

We have struck gold.When my management company that I work with, Artist International management,discovered Sasha Gerecht, famous German designer and celebrity DJ, all was well  in the world once again.Combining a mixture of European street edge and 'bad boy meets biker boy'  persona's, Rockstars & Angels is the epitome of much of what Sam Sarpong stands for. Once again, taking charge of the set up of the shoot, I decided this time to be my own caterer and bring my own health driven snacks to avoid the 'pass out and go home' disease that always sneaks up on me.

Aside from the shoot being a success, we had great support from amazing bloggers and freelance photographers . Thank you to everyone that was involved and came out to support us !

The premiere.NYC comes to LA.

The opening of the NYC Film Festival private screening was held yesterday at the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles. One of my many amazing partners, Sam Sarpong, was the lead in the award winning film, Anchor Baby.With a crowd that overwhelmed both him and I, the night was set out with high hopes. The only irritating factor was the noise- Too many people and not enough speakers.Overall, with the exception of a bit of red carpet drama, my team was very happy.

Aside from the high rise celebrities that showcased their faces, I had some of the most influential bloggers,designers and fashion savvy professionals come by!

Dear Summer, you can see right through me.

I'm 5'8 now.

Today I woke up with a urge to buy a pair of platforms. Needless to say..I didn't find them. I searched 'high & low'. I didn't find one pair of plats that sufficed the creation I had jumping around my brain. Instead I decided to buy a top hat. Although doing nothing for my shoe fix, I must admit it did relax my need to feel 3 feet taller today.

On the prow for head bangers ( hats that make you feel amazing)? Visit the Zizibeh Boutique at

Jesus,couture me.

Because this industry can be a self-driven blood sucker, joining the fashion cult at a young age can be very risky. It becomes even more test appealing if entering head first with no morals or values to back up your determination. Before I finished my contract with Vogue Magazine I did one of my most cherished interviews with Jammie Chasteen, creator of Jesus Couture clothing and blog. Laying down the inside 'personals' on my most honest ideas of fashion,art and the fast life, I realized how very important it is to share stories similar to mine for fashionistas/fashionistos that may have (most likely) perceived it differently.

It is important,with everything you do, to make certain you are doing it for all the right reasons( not just because it looks cool). I think that is apart of the problem- many pursue creative careers without understanding it's history,significance and ugly side.In hopes of  adding clarity to the "fashion is a trend" epidemic, I 'let it all hang out' on JC.

Coco Chanel said it best:
"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. "

American Vintage Westwood store opening

Basically I have been working my butt off the last 5 days planning a VIP event for American Vintage & my  team. Give me 3 days, a energy drink and some carrots.. & this is what I can make happen( see below). The event was in celebration of my boss being the face of the chain store, American Vintage, and A.V's new Westwood location. If unfamiliar with American Vintage..let me school you. I have been shopping & pulling from there for a while now-they are in some of LA's hottest locations (including Melrose).Carrying amazing pieces that date from the mid 50's to the 90's, American Vintage will definitely give you a fashion spasm. They just opened up a Westwood store in Westwood Village by the famous Fox Theatre.

The event was more amazing than I could have imagined. We had more celebs and fashion professionals show than expected ( Thank God). Most importantly, the owners of American Vintage were very pleased ( now I can breathe). As I slowly find a way back to 'normal life' ( by that I mean..sleep and eat), please enjoy the 'bootleg' flicks taken by..someone who had my camera all dam night!

The end result:The Campaign .
