Tyra takes Lace-Front & White Face to the Limits: That Shit Cray

When you say Maniac Goblin, I scream Tyra! Maniac Goblin, Tyra! Maniac Goblin, Tyra! Gotta Love her. After all, if you don’t accept her for who she is, was and will become…that’s goulash!

Goblin Tyra 512x632 Tyra takes Lace Front & White Face to the Limits: That Shit CrayTyra as Kate Upton, Tyra as Tyra, Tyra as an Ass-Clown fool. Just in time for Fash-O-Ween, Weeee Ready! Still deciphering the significance of her “white-face”, as fashion week culminates with various racial problems that don’t really surround a lack of white models and have far too many racial implications and overtones. Let’s just say it’s in poor taste, but it’s not the first time. Ty-Ty has drafted a release for relevancy. Like a man scorn, she’ll fuck all of your friends, and your mother too! You’ll never forget this BITCH, Carry On!

#BlackPower, Iman’s Boycott | Anti-Fascism: Press On!

Jones Mag 785x523 #BlackPower, Imans Boycott | Anti Fascism: Press On!

Iman calls a boycott, Jone’s Mag hosts a second annual fashion week party. After almost 9 years of blogging, what do I have to say? #BlackPower! Not only a trailblazer in the blogosphere, but one who lent her super-modeling years to emergent designers and a few jump-off athletes that thought they were cute! Might I add, a ’bout it bitch when it comes to paying homage and knowing when to stand up in her sky-high stilettos.

Furthermore, I’m insulted that Iman even had to say the word “Boycott” after all of the years she’s worked to pave the way??? Know your value, know your worth! Do I feel guilty about hashtagging #BlackPower? Absolutely not!

What message is the fascist Euro-centric fashion industry sending by not hiring an adequate amount of African American models?

It’s more than a slap in the face to all of the greats! Here’s to those who have paved the way for my voice and all of the others. Out of disgust and perturbation, I’ve decided to devote my prose & pink logo on a black background along with my fist in the air, to once again say #BlackPower.

Afterall, the designers are inadvertently slapping every negro fashion girl – including myself, large or small, in the face with their “white power” fists. It’s even more sad to shame all of those that have come before with the begging and pleading for them to hire ‘us‘. The sacrifice has already been made. For everyone who has already paid my dues, their dues, dare I say: our dues –  Let’s not beg, FUCK! Why even plead? I’ll just put my black fashion fist back in the air and hashtag #BlackPower, Press On  icon wink #BlackPower, Imans Boycott | Anti Fascism: Press On! .

Christian Dior Paris, Jessica Alba in Ariel Gordon & Florals For Spring: Groundbreaking!

Dior Jessica Alba Ariel Gordon Necklace Christian Dior Paris, Jessica Alba in Ariel Gordon & Florals For Spring: Groundbreaking!

Monday’s Christian Dior Haute Couture show in Paris was a stunner. Set in a tent in the Jardin des Tuileries, Raf Simons’ second haute couture collection for the design house sort of seemed like it took place in Never Never Land. Models so waiflike they almost seemed like they were going to fly away strutted through the tent in pixie-cut Jean Seberg wigs. With their flawless, effervescent skin and shiny red lips, they looked like Tinkerbell and her friends coming to rescue us with beautiful clothes. Kind of like fairies on haute couture crack.

The collection included ballet-length gowns, beautifully tailored suits, and lots and lots of layering and draping. Models walked down runways lined with perfectly manicured trees and landscapes designed by Belgian landscape architect Martin Wirtz. The tangerine oranges, rose pinks, lilac purples and bright greens were a good compliment to the backdrop, as were the tiny little silk flowers and petals that decorated many of the pieces in the collection. They were a great take on a typical trend for Spring, but I couldn’t help but think to myself, “Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.Miranda Priestly, you own my soul.

But enough about the couture gowns, let’s talk about what the real people were wearing—the celebrities. Celebrities like Jessica Alba. One of our best dressed at the Golden Globes winners, Alba looked like she was straight out of a 1920’s Paris photograph. With her hair pulled back in an elegant bun at the nape of her neck, a flawless brown smoky eye, and red lips, she could easily pass for a doll. She sported a navy blue velvet coat worn with a black dress underneath, black tights, black heels, and a black clutch (navy blue and black—we told you it was good). Around her neck, Jessica wore an Ariel Gordon Jewelry Signet Dog Tag Necklace. And for just $590, you can have your own beautiful 14k gold Ariel Gordon necklace. Now if only we could just have Jessica Alba’s closet… Oh, and all the florals from Dior.
