PRESS: FootWear News (Cover Story) – “Kick Starters” featuring Vashtie, DJ Clark Kent, Bobbito, Ronnie Fieg and Jeff Staple – Written by Gerald Flores
Special thanks to Gerald Flores and FootWear News for giving me the honor of gracing their cover with legends; DJ Clark Kent, Bobbito, Ronnie Fieg and Jeff Staple. So far, it’s the top story on WWD.Com…please Margiela or Alexander Wang don’t make any announcements or debuts today – hahaha.
This is my second cover (but, this is the first I’ve shared so far), the first being a solo cover shot on the cover of Maco’s (a Trinidadian magazine) September issue.
Here are some behind the scenes shots of the shoot. It was pretty funny. At first, they staged me on the floor – laying on my side like a Vogue cover. It was a nice idea, but it was so not me…and amongst the guys, it made me look silly.
Finally, the photographer asked me to get to the top of the ladder and voila! Here it is. Shooting with these legends (and also friends) was amazing…and hilarious.

This is dedicated to all my readers who know how much this meeting means to me. I may have joked HERE and THERE about kidnapping and other innocent things in jest, but on a serious note – it was really refreshing to meet such an incredible artist like Archy! He blew me away and I hope you enjoy this episode! ALL THANKS goes to his highness JOSH MADDEN for not only introducing Zoo Kid’s (aka King Krule) music to me, but for eventually introducing King Krule aka Archy to me…IN REAL LIFE.

INTERVIEW: 11 NYC Tastemakers Dish on Their Go-To Male Grooming Spots x Written By Vashtie for Complex (Presented By Gillette)
Since I was a young girl, I’ve been intrigued by the male species.Â Aside from the obvious attraction, I was more fascinated by their masculinity, style, interests and mannerisms. Now that I’ve graduated to adulthood,Â that fascination has expanded into grooming.Â How a man grooms his facial hair, why he decides on a beard vs a clean shaven faceÂ or where he goes for general maintenance is intriguing. A guy can look one way for Spring with a mustache and look totally different for Winter with a beard.
Grooming also begins to divide the boys from the men and women who are equally involved in their ownÂ personal grooming find this aspect very attractive.
I asked 11 of of my guy friends (including: A-Trak, Victor Cruz, Steve Nash, Jonathan Mannion, Josh Madden, Nigel Sylvester and more!) where they go for male groomingÂ and here’s what they told me…

The nice folks at Gillette asked me what I look for in a guy, even more what I look for in his grooming. Check out what I had to say in this VIDEOÂ and if you are a “fella”, enter to win the sweepstake to win $500 towards a Style Upgrade.

INTERVIEW: Ebony Magazine x Leaders Of The New Cool x Vashtie “The Tomboy Temptress” x September Issue
I’m overjoyed at being featured in Ebony Magazine’s Style/Influencers Section, written by Ericka Goodman. They let me be me and used my interview answers perfectly! My write-up is extremely kind and I’m obsessing over the title Miss Goodman gave me of “Tomboy Temptress” – owwwww! I am also extremely honored to be featured in such a historic and important September issue that features the 4 cover tribute to Trayvon Martin.
Don’t you just love Complex and their many lists! Matthew Henson of Complex reached out and asked me to comment on things that men wear that I don’t like. I actually needed no time to respond, as I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. Let me also point out, when these trends first started happening it was cute – but, now it’s really exhausted. As always, I am no expert, this is just my opinion. You can also read comments from my lovely lady friends; Deirdre Maloney, Natalie Levy, Rose Garcia, Cynthia Lu & More!
