I like to see diversity in fashion. More than anything, I like to see expressive artist/designers bringing a little crazy. This months ‘Josephine’ editorial is just that. It’s it’s got a whole lotta va-va-voom and some serious, cha-cha.
My favorite part? FIERCE COLOR!!! It’s summer and we all want to bring the color out of the closet, and get inspired. This vivid imagery and emotion made me feel THAT INTENSITY. I must say, this is the beginning of a love affair. A love affair with Vogue Brasil.
Hooray it’s summer! That means fabulous clothes, tons of sun and fabulous editorials. I was thing of something very ‘artistique’, but then I realized not all editorials need to be have to be mind blowing, sometimes you just want to have something simple, and gorgeous.
With that I give a sexy, fun, frolicking editorial from are friends over at Wildfox.
Known for their flirty, simple style Wildfox has always been a West Coast favorite. Their dresses in this editorial are light and flowery, their shirts make me want to wear them. In other words a wardrobe must have. They are my summer clothing staple, and I must have the entire collection. Excuse me while go shopping….
Here’s Lauren de Graaf giving us full on Wildfox girl!
Hedwig and the Angry Itch is one of my all time top 10 movies I love, adore and sing along to like a truly skilled shower singer. This means I have a crap voice but LOVE everything to do with this movie so I will make you suffer anyway. This also means if you haven’t watched it, straight or part of our lovely LGBT community, you should.
It in fact is so good it has become a sold out show on Broadway. Even more amazing is the new lead Hedwig is our favorite, delicious piece of supermodel chocolate, Taye Diggs. And he’s owning it.
Her is the first press photo of Taye rocking the transvestite, with the angry inch, Hedwig.
Work that ruby glitter Taye! We’re rooting for you to own this production!!

When people ask what I do I have a wide variety of responses. Writer, Editor, Superhero, fangirl, foodie, luchadora, pretzel vendor, fashionista, oh and that thing I do, Wardrobe Styling and Image Branding.
Sure I like pretty clothes that are nice and Michael Kors and Tom Ford are my heroes. But bring me a dress that is over the top couture insanity and I’m hooked. I want to work with it, love it and stick every client I have in it.
My client and friend Joy Villa is something special. She’s diverse, beautiful, 1000% vegan, a hardcore physically fit songstress. She is something special and her style is off the hook.

She called me ecstatic, she was headed to the Grammy’s in a few weeks and needed something as amazing, and over the top as her personality. I hooked her up with Andre Soriano, and magic happened. Joy chose the most amazing, creative thing Andre has ever sent down the runway, the couture cage dress made of snow fencing. AS a stylist I make sure that the dress they choose is the MAIN event, but always have other wardrobe choices for parties and after parties
During the fitting we chose three dresses all of which she wore like a supermodel. Stunning and sensual she wore the first, and sexiest to Jay-Z’s ‘Rocnation’ brunch.
This dress was skin-tight and Joy looked beautiful while she mingled with celebrities.
But let’s look at what you really came here for, The third and most outrageous was the orange dress that made headlines around the world.
Joy and I had an AMAZING fitting with Andre.
Up in the hills of Hollywood strange and beautiful things happen. At the fitting I met the beautiful Ruby Roxanne or Ruby Roxanne Designs and Hollywood Dolls.
Her partner in crime is ex-Pussycat Doll Kaya Jones. Her line is just what we needed for Joy to look gorgeous and we added Swarovski drop earrings and this leather and Swarovski bracelet;
With Nichole Ray Artistry on make-up the day of Joy turned out an unforgettable Grammy look.

Love it or hate it Joy Villa rocked it at the Grammy’s and got center stage at the Grammy’s. (And to answer the burning question, yes I put pasties on her and she was not completely nude.)
Apparently we rocked it because as much as she may have gotten some bad reviews we are trending at 81,000 hits in Asia and are on blogs in the UK, France, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic and all over the Philippines.
I want to say congratulations to my team, Andre Soriano (couture King), Ruby Roxanne Designs (Jewelry is everything), Nichole Ray Artistry (her skin was perfection), Thorsten von Overgarrd (one of the best photogs I have ever met) and especially to Joy Villa for rocking the red caret and her amazing energy the whole time!
Don’t know who Joy Villa is, but want to find out? Check out her Vagabonds video below;
Great news for Muppet’s fan’s worldwide, the Muppets are finding a permanent home in New York City. New York’s Museum of Moving Image, is getting a fat donation.
By fat I mean Piggy, Kermit, some of Sesame street and some very happy little Fraggles, who no longer need to worry about their home.
According to the lovely people at AP/Yahoo;
Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Bert and Ernie of “Sesame Street” fame, the stars of “Fraggle Rock” and other puppets, costumes and items from throughout Muppet’s creator Jim Henson’s career have been donated
What is even cooler is over 400 items and 25 years worth of Muppet’s are being handed over to the museum. How epic is that?!
Unfortunately the sad part? We have to wait a year.
The exhibit is to open next year at the museum in the Long Island City neighborhood, across the East River from midtown Manhattan. The city is chipping in $2.75 million toward the $5 million cost for a project it sees as furthering its goal of persuading more tourists to venture beyond Manhattan.
I guess I know when to schedule my visit to the East Coast. See you there.
Yes, that’s right. Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together.
Or are they? More importantly do we care?
According to a ‘source’ that contacted UsWeekly the couple are back together. Rihanna and Chris Brown are still ‘having issues’ aka fighting like horny cats and dogs, but are trying to make it work. Rihanna recently performed in Los Angeles for her ‘Diamonds’ tour and got all cryptic again. We guess she was talking about her uber love/hate relationship with a certain brother with the initials C and B.
“How many of you are in love?” Riri asked, “How many of you hate love? How many of you don’t fucking understand it? I’m in that group.”
Girl we all feel that way but ESPECIALLY about your love for Chris Brown.
NO! Say it ain’t so. My one chance to meet and slobber on Johnny Depp seem’s to have flown the coop. Look’s like all us Hollywood Depp groupies will have to wait another year or even, lifetime, for our chance to party with Johnny.
That’s right Mr’ Johnny Depp came to his senses (boo!) and has flown back to the south of France to try to patch thing up with his long-time love Vanessa Paradis. Makes sense since he has two children in the picture now. That’s right. They are getting big enough to know what is going on now too. Lily-Rose is 13, and Jack is nine. Depp is 49 now and needs to stop philandering and fooling around.
I hate to wish them the best, but I sincerely do. Go get your woman Johnny and as the French say ; Bonne Chance!
