-PHOTO by: Vince Flores/startraksphoto.com

Welcome to the fabulous new release by mostly Britney Spears with a dash of Iggy Azalea to push it into the Top 40 billboard hits. It’s called ‘Pretty Girls’ because really it’s all you hear during this god awful mess. It tried to be some 80s-ish redux of ‘Earth Girls are Easy’ mixed with basic 80s trash style, and turned into a straight train wreck of idiocy. Britney is repetitive more than usual and the itsy-bitsy Iggy part of her rapping is barely hearable. Overall, bad, bad, FAIL.

I know I am scathing and harsh when it comes to stuff like this so I will let you gauge for yourself, how, erm, interesting this video is. Good luck and try not to drop your jaw in disbelief too hard.

In case you’ve been living in a cave, #Beyonce dropped #FlawlessRemix with #NickiMinaj

Beyonce-and-Nicki-Minaj-flawless
In case you have been hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro, or perhaps living in cave, awesome popular music just dropped.

Beyoncé, Queen of Quite A Lot, and Nicki Minaj, girl with Quite A Lot of Booty collaborated. And it was awesome. Addressing the Solange elevator debacle and good ‘ol haters, these two hot hip hop songstress’ brought the best case of illz I have had in a while.

Listen to the original on her site below…

Things to do besides your taxes, May 1st Whisky GoGo @LanceHerbstrong FREE SHOW #Mayday #Free #Music #LA

And you thought braving Coachella was bad.

Today in the US, Millions of Americans will hoof it to the lovely post office and stand in the worst line ever to file their taxes. Or an extension. Or realize they didn’t make enough and are too broke this year to file. Ah, the 21st century blues.

Even though we love being responsible *cough* we love things that are FREE and irresponsible better. I bring you good news and tidings from the awesomeness that is FREE shows.

Lance Herbstrong is putting on a free show at the Whisky go-go Hollywood! Yes, FREE. I love that word because living in Los Angeles is NOT cheap. Plus it makes for a fun show with a great vibe full of fun people.

Added incentive is the uber cool BREALTV is helping host it. BREALTV is like the High Times of television. Oh and the special guests? Well, past friends of Lance Herbstrong include Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers who gave Lance a shout out onstage and George Clinton of Parliament and Atomic Dog. Last but not least, If you haven’t heard or been to the Whisky GoGo, it’s the famed venue where the Doors got their start and became a mega band. Also mega players breeze through for ‘special’ events like this one. It’s historically and musically awesome.

What’s the catch? You have to RSVP ASAP!!

OMG, where’s the link? Right below this;

Ima Change Your Life with Iggy Azalea to Rock Your Day (video) #Explicit #NSFW

Lately I have been mega inspired. I owe some of that to Los Angeles Fashion Week. I owe some of it to my favorite ghetto booty girl Iggy Azalea.

Iggy-Azalea-Acclaim-Magazine-01

First she was signed to Wilhelmina Models. Then she ditched modeling for music. For years she’s been working with some of the hardest music gangsta’ in the industry. Now she’s finally owning it. And I’m loving her ratchet, booty shaking, sick-flowing ways.

iggy-azalea-work

I’m hooked. And you should be too.

Until I can get back to you and post all the fab photos from the Octavio Carlin Show (I was front row), I’ll leave you with this.

Yo, Hustle Gang homie, real talk, no bullshit

Just let me add a little bit of muscle, baby

Joint venture, we’ll partner up until the shares are up
And I up your wages
On a private island, Dolo

One across the Cono
Them broads before me was locals
Through customs accustom your wardrobe, damn
Stamped passports where they all pass ports
Til the clocks fast forward
There’ll be dark blue shores
Where they don’t do chores
We just get chauffered
Damn, this is the life
Exclusive shit with all access granted

In the country where the accents are grand
And they landin’ on top of all the mansions

[Hook x4]
I’mma change your life, I’mma change it
I’mma change your life (life)

[Verse 2: T.I.]
If you could listen more than you speak

Even extensions plugs in your weave
I be blowing on strong weed when we ride
And everybody just lookin’
But when that nigga go holla
They like “Nah shawty, she tooken”

I’mma get you you up out that corner shop
Put you up in Neiman Marcus where you supposed to shop
Hey let me show you that watch
You supposed to wear

That Honda Civic get your ass in here

Tell your Mom and Dad that you strange
Don’t worry ’bout it you got it
You fly over in coach and fly back in a jet,
Hustle Gang on your chest,
Ain’t no time for no stress

[Iggy Azalea]
We spend our winters in the Summer of Australia
Eating crumpets with the sailors
On acres without the neighbors
We fast-forward four years more
We a long way from piss poor
And all the shit that we endured
I told you what you was in for so

[Hook x4]
I’mma change your life, I’mma change it

You never go back, even if you could

Have you ever wished your life would change?
Woke up and you lived your dreams
Baby I could help you make that change

I’mma change your life (life)
I’ll show you my way, I got that good-good
I’mma change your life, I’mma change it
I’mma change your life (life)

Dripped LA Fashion Soiree at SupperClub LA #Fab #Fashion #Elite #Runway

Dripped Show

Being so busy I forgot to do a review on a great fashion show I recently was part of here in the heart of Hollywood at Supperclub. It was smart, well put together and all about the elite.

I might have not gone had it not been for the fact, the talented and tres chic, Adolfo Sanchez, had an installation there. Adolfo has been taking the international fashion market by storm. With several seasons worth of shows at NYFW, national coverage and of course a recent trip to Turkey and Western Europe, Adolfo Sanchez has broadened his lines availability and now works on couture as well.

Check out his line here, because they are soooo very. Adolfo Sanchez Designs

In fact that was the first thing I saw as I walked in the door.

After a meet, greet and air kisses Adolfo and I looked on while his well-kilted assistant adjusted the installation before opening.

And open it did. The Dripped Soiree was packed and everyone was there from stylist and business entrepreneur Eric Burns, of Prep Jerks, Inc., Marianne Geisha Of GGeisha Productions and the style crew that included my long-lost friend Malakai.

After an hour or so of mingling and drinking the crowd was restless. We were thankfully rescued by being ushered into the main floor. The 5 designers presenting; Madem Black, Staci Sherri, J Loren, Reckor and FROCK LA. Allof the designers were on their game but my personal fave’s that  stood out were Madem Black, J. Loren and Frock.

With a full rubber and latex collection Madem Black kicked off with delicious diva’s in rubber, latex and PVC. Letting the imagination run wild she presented outfits with peek-a-boo latex lattices. One or two pieces even left nothing to the imaginations created from see through PVC and rubber. As it should when bringing the sexy. Between the spikes and latex everyone’s jaw appropriately dropped and Madem Black left us with a sexy taste in our mouth.

J. Loren brought the 60’s kitsch with gorgeous body-con dresses. With angular shoulders, J. Loren created sexy silhouettes bringing to mind Mad Men. Although some dresses were color blocked (and well) most were divided with loud prints and black lined figures, reflecting early 60’s sectional couture. A must have in my wardrobe. It was indeed, perfect skinny girl clothing.

Frock LA, was devastating.

They ended the show with a presentation that rivals most NYFW shows. Classic elegance, embodied in a ethnic chic. Tall, lengthy girls taking the time to not only show off their lengthy gowns but pose in the moment. Sadly I only got the first few models on the runway in video but they ended the show in absolute perfection.

Huge thanks to all involved, especially GGeisha Marianne and crew. I will be covering Frock LA when Dad’s Day is over.

Check out some of the random shots I got over the evening in the gallery below.

Monday Music, ‘Synrise’ by GOOSE #EditorialMusic #Cool #WakeUp

Yesterday I posted a very gorgeous video with very gorgeous supermodel’s in Dior.

Today I give you the band that made it all deliciously possible. I figure we all deserve to wake up with some Monday morning inspiration while we chug down a pitcher of coffee.

Enjoy your Monday Music by easing into the day with ‘Synrise’ by Belgium band GOOSE.

LA Runway at Mansion Hollywood/LA Fashion Week #RunwayReport #Dancers #Singers #HeathyrWolfe

Fashion Week in LA was absolutely well done and gorgeous this year. I did miss some highlights and events, but one must  pick and choose very wisely.

‘LA Runway’, event by Parris Harris Entertainment was an excellent choice especially since hey were doing a food drive for the LA Mission’s.

I brought another part of our Fast Lane Magazine editorial team, Rene Rivers with me to the event. One must always have fashionable friends with you. Rene Rivers (StyledbyRene.com) is a stylist, I knew she would enjoy the runway and clothing.IMAG1312

We checked in early so we got to watch run through’s and set up.

IMAG1295 IMAG1306 IMAG1305 IMAG1296

It’s always nice to know what you are getting into.

In Los Angeles we’ve had our issues with Fashion Week. This year however was organized and brilliant. In LA we aim to achieve more than NYFW by including the strange, unusual and always unexpected. I’m pleased to say Parris Harris Entertainment really went above and beyond with this show. Although it was a lengthy 4 hours it was worth every minute.

HUGE Thanks to Parris Harris. He seated in the front so we got a really clear view.

Front Diva. It’s what being a Fashion Editor is all about.

The place was packed.

IMAG1349

I swear I though people would start swinging from the rafters. It was THAT kind of packed.

We were lucky to here a few kind words from one of the chair of the LA mission who serves over 2,000 meals a day here in Los Angeles to the homeless and needy. This woman is a saint.

After intro’s from the talented Alicia Hardesty & the LA Mission L Runway at Mansion rocked it with sexy Brazilian hitting the runway. Ay Mami!

IMAG1326IMAG1327

If anyone ever says LA is boring again I am hiring these girls to come over. They WRECKED the runway.

Other AMAZING performances were by a high energy girl group called The Dolls

A one woman show who gives Lady Gaga a run for her money (somebody email this girls number to me), Spankie Valentine.

Spankie is not only gorgeous but she knows how to work a stage, an audience and bring the music. She’s got talent and style. Obviously influenced by Diva’s like Beyonce, Janet Jackson with a tiny dash of 80’s glam costuming. She’s got sass and flash and is definitely someone to keep an eye and ear on.

Check out pics from her ferosh stage show;

And one of the most talented violinst’s I have ever seen.

The Musicians were top notch and I will be forever grateful I got to see them perform each of their unique talents.

Six designers were featured on the runway throughout the evening. All the designers were amazing my favorites were Camille Wood, Jewelry Designer Carol Lynn Sweet of Sweet Designs and my friend Shekhar Rahate (you still owe me a drink!). I will be doing a piece on Carol’s jewelry line later this week but for now go check out here pieces at;

For crazy fun and swim/clubwear with some sass look no further than Camille Wood.

Camille has a killer smile, a mass of blond hair and is just all around fun. Her fashion is exactly the same with an addition of fantasy and swimsuits made for killer bodies. She topped them all with elegant and bejeweled headdresses making for a perfect outfit for the modern day Cleopatra. Or ballsy girl who loves to show shes more than the average beach girl.

IMAG1425 IMAG1427 IMAG1428 IMAG1429 IMAG1430 IMAG1431 IMAG1433 IMAG1435

Shekhar Rahate ended the show with classic beauty. His dresses have been seen on stars and celebrities at The Grammys, Helium Magazine, LA Fashion Week and at NY Fashion Week. The man is a master of his trade and produces nothing short of elegance.

Most of the dresses featured in Shekhar (literally meaning sugar) Rahate’s collection were lean, long and full of feminine grace. Gold hues mixed with Indian prints. Flowers printed silks and cottons were topped with elegant headdresses  Definitely the man to go to for a red carpet dress.

Check out his website ShekharRahate.com and the gallery below;
