Fun Fact: This is the soundtrack to Jay-Z & Solange’s elevator scuffle at the Standard, back in May!! That’s right, Marco Brambilla’s 4 minute video installation “Creation” has looped those famed elevators, since 2012.

Paris Couture Fall 2014: Alexandre Vauthier

Paris Couture Fall 2014: Julien Fournie

This dark & devious collection is for the woman looking to vanquish! No man, woman or red carpet stands a chance against this rapid-fire assault of plunging necklines, opulent embroidery, and bitchy bell skirts.  He found balance in pairing dainty stripes against hard edged leather trimmed jackets and black stones & beading on jewel toned silk taffeta. One of my favorite collections so far… 

Paris Couture Fall 2014: DIOR

Pictures just won’t do! Catch one of the most beautiful collections and showings I have EVER witnessed.  A dream…

Hearing of the passing of Meshach Taylor, I realized that his role as Hollywood Montrose was my first peek at what kind of gay I wanted to be: counterculturist,  employed, witty, employed, creative,  employed, true to himself,  employed, garishly fabulous and o yeah…EMPLOYED!

He taught me the lesson that being black & gay wasn’t  life sentence of struggle; that if I perfected a craft and embraced my eccentricities,  my sexuality could actually be a plus in any career.  That example left a huge impression on me and it wasn’t until I came out that I realized how NOT having such an example had left so many susceptible to lives of poverty, shame & mediocrity.  I still find myself asking “what kinda queens did you look up to as a kid”
