MET Gala

This is by far one of my favorite rooms in New York City perhaps in the world for an event. To dine while taking in ancient Egyptian ruins transports you to a time where wonders were born. (more…)

Black Girls Rock!

This award show is by far my favorite among all. The Oscars, Grammy’s and other award shows are all entertaining but I love this particular show for celebrating the excellence and achievement of African American women. (more…)

The Doll and The Designer

Christian Louboutin BarbieI have always been known for my great shoe collection so it’s only fitting that my first style entry pay homage to my favorite shoe designer Christian Louboutin. I am embarrassed to say how many pair’s I own but I will say I am certainly on a first name basis with him personally, all the boutique managers and the PR folks worldwide! Nothing like a great red sole to help you make it through the day. I had the pleasure of meeting Christian during a dinner in his honor that I attended with Kim Cattrall a few years ago during fashion week. I love him so much when my dear friend Kim Porter asked her friends to suggest names for her newborn son she asked what we thought of Christian I said YES! Then I suggested Casey and his name was born…Christian Casey Combs!

HAVING created a pair of his classic peep-toe shoes in Barbie hot pink for Barbie’s 50th birthday at New York Fashion Week, Christian Louboutin’s collaboration with the doll continues.

Acting as a muse to the famous footwear designer, the doll has not only inspired a series of photographs featuring her spending time with Louboutin (at his studio, in his country house and on his boat), she has also prompted the designer to customize three dolls.

Fashion For Relief

Marvet Britto and Estelle at Fashion For ReliefNaomi Campbell is a beacon of light in the sometimes dark world of fashion. She has been one of the most dominate African American models who has used her stature and platform to combat social issues and the ills that plague our community. In that spirit she spearheaded a show during fashion week that raised funds for the devastation that struck Haiti. Over 80 top models, designers and celebrities walked in the show in pieces that were later auctioned. Designers Donna Karan, Diane Von Furstenberg and Georgina Chapman models Selita Eubanks and Heidi Klum, and cutting edge artist Estelle and singer Chris Brown all lent their support for this great cause. The work must continue!
