TBT: Last Week Gucci Dropped Of All Black Dance Party Campaign 

Ya’ll remember when word got out that Gucci was doing an all black casting? The wait is over!

Styled and directed by Alessandro Michele, the 60’s meets the 80’s inspired campaign dropped this morning! When I say, Life is given, LIFE IS GIVEN! I cant stop looking and admiring the photos of my people glammed up and and jamming out while draped in Gucci!


“The Soul Scene” was shot and inspired by Glen Luchford’s “Made You Look” exhibit which explored the black man, masculinity and Dandy. When Michele visited the exhibit last summer in London, he particularly fell in love with Malick Sidibé. Sidibe’s work focused on nightlife and culture from his home in West Africa.


Great Job Alessandro! Thank You for genuinely capturing our essence! Nothing feels forced in these images.

The Gucci Triplets 

Ok, ok, ok!!! Lupita wore the Gucci number FIRST at the Cannes Film Festival followed by ME in the Fall of 2015 but I did know that Beyoncé bought hers not too long after I donned the dress. Back then, I wasn’t at liberty to say but I felt very honored that Queen Bey and I have similar taste! Beyoncé just keeps taking a page out of my wardrobe and I’m ok with that!



I must say Muva looks amazing in this gown as she shows off her pregnant belly and the adorable Blu Ivy! I must say Lupita killed us both though! The emerald green compliments her complexion so well.

Gucci F/W 17


Gucci continues to take us on whirlwind adventure as Alessandro Michele presented his f/w 17 collection as models walked through a glass tunnel. The theme, The Alchemist Garden: An Anti Modern Laboratory, which basically emphasizes going against the grain of fashion, which Gucci has done since Michele’ has become creative director. 

Nothing is normal about Gucci. From pairing a glitter full body suit with a tank top and shorts to mixing embellished plaid shirts with shiny vinyl pants, this collection perfectly combines couture with street wear. 


Gucci continues to push the envelope and is forcing everyone else to reconsider what they believe fashion is. 
Take a look at some of my favorite looks.

Beyoncé Rocks Gucci


Beyonce dropped by the NBA All Star Game in New Orleans in $21,945 Gucci embroidered tiger print silk kimono. The kimono, which is available for pre-order, made its way to the runway durning the men’s spring/summer 2017 fashion show! 
Creative Director, Alessandro Michele, described the kimono as, “unexpected.” 


Why the price tag? The detachable collar is decked out with black lamb and purple mink fur. The hand embroidered mink pockets are line with green mink fur! 


Well Beyoncé, you win again! Since you aren’t going to wear this kimono again, may I have it?!

What Do I Have In Common With Beyonce’? 


Working in fashion, I often get a chance to preview upcoming collections from our favorite designers. A few months back I got to preview Gucci’s fall/winter collection and immediate fell in love with the amazing furs in the collection (Sorry PETA, my mink will always drag on the floor). But there was this amazing pink mink fur I couldn’t help but gag over. Of course I took the opportunity to have a photo shoot with it and the pics turned out great. I was hella salty when I found out Kris Jenner purchased it as I was saving my coins for it. 
But then Halloween happened.
We always look forward to it favorite celebrities costumes and well BEYONCE’ wore my fur!!!! I died! I won’t even go into the fact she dressed as a Barbie! I love Barbie but I digress. BEYONCE’ again wore the fur I loved so much! 


Beyonce call me…since you will probably never wear it again, I’ll gladly take it. Also let’s continue our blossoming friendship that Julius so rudely ended when he made you exit stage left when we were in Saks.

Gucci Men Winter 2016

I absolutely love what Gucci has being serving these last couple of seasons and their latest pre-fall and winter collection for 2016 is to live for. I am all about bold prints, colors, mixing fabrics, and GIVING A FULL LOOK! So Gucci has not disappointed me at all with these most recent collections.  Alessandro Michele’s presented this new collection in Milan back in June and I was in love with it instantly! The usage of animals (Woodstock and Snoopy from Charlie Brown), metallic fabrics, and embroidery has more of the type with LOVE! The lines give me such a 80s/90’s feel. Fashion is fun again ! So many other retailers have of course created many different inspirations, so if you want the look but don’t want to break the bank! Its is hard to obtain these sames looks for fraction of Gucci price tags (Zara -which is one of my go to favorites or,Your favorite Instagram boutique)!   But believe me when I say, there is nothing like the real thing and the creativity behind this current collection. Honestly all I require  is a pair of those kangaroo lined loafers and maybe a Snoopy sweater or two? I need some satisfaction or a gofundme for my shopping habit! Check out some of my favorite pieces below….
