The aftermath of ‘Semaine Mode Montréal’
I met this good friend of mine at Montréal Fashion Week in February 2013, and she did an interview with me as a part of her studying project.
Here is a part of what we talked about:
People are letting go
Excerpts from the interview:
Can you describe your personal style?
It’s me. That’s what I call it. Me, myself and I. Like today, I could totally rock this boyish look. Another day I could go for skinny pants or something more feminine. It depends on how I feel when I wake up. I just grab something and that’s my outfit for today. Fashion is all about doing what you want to do and expressing yourself.
How would you describe black style?
Black style? It has been mostly hip-hop. If you come to Nordic countries I think black style … most of the black people they came out of being hip-hop or gangster. Most of those you find, the fashionable ones, are true artists. Whenever they dress themselves, they create. And I think that’s something we’re going to be seeing mostly with the new generation, our generation. People are becoming themselves, people are letting go. Sometimes there’s this stereotype of a black person but now people are coming out and putting themselves out there, like “this is me. Take it or leave it.”
Please make sure that you follow this blog as it is full of lot’s tips about fashion that you don’t wanna miss:
MEWS which is a monthly fashion event held at Royal Phoenix Bar (Plateau, Montréal) is a platform of visibility for young artists and designers, and makes both accessible to the general public.
This time for their 10th edition by DYDHP (Die Young Die Happy Production) they showcased a couple of accessories made by one of the young local designers.
Drama at the 2013A/W Paris FashionWeek:
Frank Ocean’s simple-casual outfits in everyone’s face as he took-over the Front Row spotlight at the 2013 A/W PFW which usually belongs to Kanye West
Too much to handle for the “whizzyboy”!!??
Although this could be the time for Kanye West to give up/pass-on his PFW-legendary-throne to a young newcomer, I can’t see Frank Ocean ever be the one unless he brings his gayness-magic-game-up to the next lever, obviously with a big help from his new BFF Karl Lagerfeld. I am not saying that Ocean can’t be the “crazy-attention-hore” just like any other young stars todays, though I simply can’t see his EGO over “Goldigger-rapper”. Or would Kanye ever let that happen!?
On the other side one might just say that since Kanye is now occupied with the “soon-baby-daddy-thing”, it is probably the time for others to hit the peak of the fashion spotlight, and enjoy the ride for a little while without having him around bitching. Ups, let’s hope that Kanye West do remembers what the ”old-black-mama” said: once you gone B – you never go back.
Don’t get me wrong, I am a big fan of the soon-to-be-a- new-member of “Keeping up with the Kardashians” but, like some’ve already mentioned on twitter – #haters ”this is probably the time for Kanye to chilaxe a bit, just like any other old dudes“. And since we all have seen everything he has to offer accessories-wise: from the “Shutter shades“, “Amber Rose“, “the Givenchy leather kilt” till the latest “Kim Kardashian“, i find it hard to believe that Kanye can impress us and get his crown back, unless he does another “George W. Bush does not care about black people” which this time could be “Hi my name is Kanye West & and I am Gay” or to “Wear the new-born in his neck as a bling-bling-chain” while Kim is recovering from the pregnancy. Ups!
But, but, but who says that Kanye becoming the W* Kardashian baby-daddy makes him disappearing? Just sayin*

As I didn’t get the chance to se the 2013 Oscars, I tried to some research on who was hot, who was wearing who/what/how and check out what I found: “Alexander McQueen’s spring 2013” became The Oscars 2013 ‘Spotlight-magnet’ as Elizabeth Banks, Salma Hayek, Amanda Seyfried and last but not least Eddie Redmayne walked by the red carpet turning paparazzi and reporter into crazy-madness-stalkers.
The Hunger-Games-actress Elisabeth Banks at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party wearing this amazing colourful orange-ish Alexander McQueen spring 2013 dress. Seriously is it only me and my African roots that are still caught up into the je-suis-ici-colourful-things – or this lady looks fabulous? G. Would you even believe that she is almost 40(ps. no-offense), ups ☺
C’ect C H I C!
Although I can only recall Salma Hayek back in the 2006 Bandidas and of course in the 1995 one and the only one Desperado, This lady has come to stay. I’ve seen some people on twitter bitching about this dress, but I do so much DISAGREE. I definitely find it hot, sexy, elegant and dramatically fabulous. I like the Alexander McQueen thinking-out-of-the –box way using the dark-night-blue velour(#trendy) kinda fabric to create this gorgeous sexy-elegant dress decorated with gold rhinestones on the chest and on the neck area.
J’ A I M E!
The 27-year-old Les Miserables actress, Amanda Seyfried wearing a beautiful Alexander McQueen gown on the red carpet #glamorousperfectiontotsamaze. Call it “I am-soon-30-and-I-need-a-man-thing” or whatever, but this young lady is styled and looks outstanding in this dress. I like the rido-kinda-layer-fabric and the way that she kept it cute, simple, fabulous and last but not least elegant.
Love – it
I don’t know where to start, but we all know and adore the-English-Burberry-model, Eddie Redmayne for his gentle, hotness, coolness and this time now his acting in Les Misérables. And yeps, this time he keeps the business into family by suiting up in Alexander McQueen – looking absolutely dashing at the 2013 Oscars’ red carpet. I love the one-button-tuxedo, the shirt’s little-kaki-shiny-buttons, the amazing bowtie and of course the trendy kinda black-velour-slipper-shoes. This guy looks absolutely stunning!
