thanks to charles who had me in and out of every shop, trying on everything from HELMUT LANG to MARC JACOBS, in search of an ensemble for the PAPER AWARDS. we went all over the city and left no stone unturned, from OAK to FOREVER 21. special thanks to him for his patience and great energy. you can check him here…
*trying on clothes is my least favorite thing to do…i’m too lazy.
check this doc that i was asked to be apart of, featuring people of color (including EMIL WILBEKIN) from around the world discussing their skin and what it means to them. it was really interesting, because we all know our skin is important…but we rarely ever verbalize that.Â check the trailer here and the 20 minute documentary here
that’s who i will be, for real. living in new york city is hard, there’s no space. after putting all my kicks in plastic bins and exhausting what little storage space, i started placing kicks in my luggage. and it makes no sense because i’m not wearing kicks anymore. oy!
yay! OSCAR and I were given the honor of a one page in the most recent PAPER MAGAZINE. the same magazine we grew up on, drooling over New York City nighlife! needless to say it was an honor to be in the magazine as well as be nominated for BEST NEW PARTY (OPEN) and BEST PARTY (1992).
it was a great night! despite the winning and the losing, we are all winners! here’s how the night went…
*it was packed with legends…RICHIE RICHE, MICHAEL MUSTO, ANDREW ANDREW, AMANDA LEPORE.
*ELLE and JAE were on hand for support…with SIR CHARLES in the back.
*SABEL and JASMINE SALANO
*HOOD BY AIR.
*lovely DJ LINDSEY – CONGRATS!
*JR is super adorable, but i have the feeling she could stomp the life out of you with her doc martens.
*HOSTESS’es with the MOSTEST’es
*acceptance speech for OPEN (we won). Q TIP and RICH were out of town. don’t remember what i said, but RICHIE RCIH gave me my award i shouted out my favorite spot…SANTOS!
*me and this guy.
*he was so popular.
*he was moving too fast for my taste.
*we sat next to the amazing JAMES MURPHY.
*we celebrated with OSCAR at the APT party he was hosting…
