Male Model to Watch. - Lee Kholafai

New male model to watch. Lee Kholafai.

"I'm from Mobile, Al. Im represented by Vision LA, Major Models NY, , Elite Milan and Fashion Cult in Greece. I never thought i would be a male model. I actually dreamed of being in the NFL one day but an ankle injury kind of messed that up. I own a car stereo and rim shop back home that i started when i was 18. Im pretty laid back and i just like to be around others with a positive energy."



This is his personal blog. Check it out. It's smoking HOT. His Twitter page where you can find him updating all his moves (every 5 seconds) , photo shoots, and his daily twitpic. You can't get enough of him. Oh and btw, he was in Kelly Clarkson's "I Do Not Hook Up" music video.

Lara Stone, French Vogue

Lara Stone posing for French Vogue, October issue as a black girl. Instead of using the real black supermodel heavyweight such as, Naomi Campbell, Liya Kebede, Sesilee Lopez, Chanel Iman, Arlenis Sosa or Jordan Dunn, Carine Roitfeld decided to use Lara Stone instead and painting her head to toe in black. Photographed by the world known photographer Steven Klein.

What do you think? Art..or just plain offensive?  * I personally think, there are nothing wrong with it.  Racist argument is so yesteryear. I don't think black people simply get offended by these pictures after all. 

P.s: Lara Stone is a super-supermodel. The All Lara Stone February issue by Vogue just proving that.

Chanel Spring 2010 RTW by Karl Lagerfeld

Androgynous. This is the true meaning of the word androgynous. It's not when a girl wearing boys clothes and look like a boy, or boys wearing girls clothes and look like a girl.

It's when a girl wearing the exact same clothes like the boys but still maintaining her grace and femininity or boy wearing the exact same clothes like the girl but still holding strong to his masculinity while oozing the same charisma and self-confident.

This, again proved by the legend of fashion ambiguity himself the great Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel Spring 2010 RTW show recently held at soaring glass dome of Grand Palais, Paris for Paris Fashion Week. A great friend of Yves Saint Laurent who single handedly revolutionized how women dress in the mid 70's. As model by Baptiste Giabiconi (DNA) and Freja Beha Erichsen, the word 'unisex' will never be the same again.

Still holding their own gender identity while oozing the same amount of masculinity / femininity even wearing the same clothes with exact detailing and embroidery. Somehow it proves the saying "It's not what you are wearing, but how you wearing them."

Approved by the master himself. Karl Lagerfeld for the final bow. The show was truly dramatic inspired by Marie Antoinette's Petit Hameau farm at Versailles with big tall barn erected right in the center of the dome, with dirt, hay and rooster cocking around. With Lily Allen and the band and 2 backup singers/models serenading lines of editors, buyers and fashionistas and not to forget the wannabes, it was Karl Lagerfeld's show after all.

p.s: I want the whole look of the first pic. Skin-tight jeans with gold embroidered navy blue jacket and double breasted inner vest.

p.s.s; It's truly a great year for male model Baptiste Giabiconi. He is the male version of Gisele Bundchen. He has been the muse for Karl Lagerfeld and his editorial spread for Purple Magazine was shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself. If it was me, I could die the next day smiling. Take a peek here and here. This one is for Wallpaper Magazine. When I say peek, then you should really peek. It was artfully vulgar.

Lindsay Lohan, Paris

There were lots of bashing and bad-talking since the recent Emanuel Ungaro Spring 2010 RTW show that was held at Carrousel du Louvre, Paris during Paris Fashion Week. Partly, because it was Lindsay Lohan who was assigned as a 'artistic adviser' for Ungaro *i don't know who made that call. Maybe Mounir Moufarrige was drunk dialing her and before he realizes, it was already too late...Or mostly because it was seriously a really horrible show.. Cheesy, trying to hard I must say. Heart-shaped pasties?? on your chest?? Come on Lindsay!!

BTW, I LOVE the FENDI knee high boots she's wearing at the recent outing in Paris!! I WANT!! It's really on-your-face kind of boots with the brand's studded emblem is as big as your palms -put together.

"Rest assured, fashion skeptic: The collection was truly, deeply horrible. While snobbery did play a role in the reviews, it was only a supporting role. " - Josh Patner for talking about was the collection really that horrible? Or was Lindsay Lohan just the victim of fashion snobbery?

Sommerset House, London (The Sartorialist)

For you who have known me for the past few years.. you all very well know how I like to dress myself (anything vintage ol' leather rock glam) and what I'm into. Spotted at London fashion week by none other than the great 'The Sartorialist', I'm very in LOVE with his style and we even have the same hair style (mine is in black). =)

Vintage brown leather jacket over loose t-shirt with purple skinny jeans. Accessories done nicely with a burgundy vintage leather sling back. BRAVO.
