I love street style photos. They give me outfit inspiration. I saw a bunch of jeans that had the bottom cut off of them last season, so I just cut the bottom off of my jeans as well. This look right here is perfect for those crisp, cold days. There is something very 70s about it. 70s style trends were all over the NYFW runways. Now I need to find a blanket, so I can get my 70s on. Photo by Tommy Ton for Style.com.
Even though the industry tries to act like we don’t exist, we in there! Thanks Tommy Ton for showing the world that black people love fashion too! [SOURCE]
Today’s Bad Bish post goes out to Tommy Ton and Style.com for taking and posting these pictures, anybody who gets to go to Paris Fashion Week, and anybody who can rock a sweatshirt dress. Photos from Style.com.
I remember the very first time I saw a picture of Shala Monroque. I didn’t know much about her except that she was black, fierce, wearing cute kitten heels, and was featured on Tommy Ton’s siteJak and Jil which meant that she was somebody. As a matter of fact, the caption under her photo read in all caps, “KEEP YOUR EYES WIDE OPEN FOR SHALA MONROQUE. SHE’S ONE TO WATCH.” From there I knew I would be seeing more of her, for when Tommy Ton’s camera deems you a fashion star…you are a STAR!

YESTERDAY ANNA DELLO RUSSO HAD ASKED ME IF I’D LIKE TO JOIN HER AT HER SUITE AT THE RITZ AS SHE GOT READY FOR THE MASQUERADE BALL CELEBRATING VOGUE PARIS’ 90TH ANNIVERSARY. I THOUGHT WHY NOT AND I COULD NEVER SAY NO TO ANNA OF COURSE. IT’S NO SURPRISE THAT WHEN ANNA HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO DRESS UP, SHE WILL GO ALL OUT. FUNNILY ENOUGH, INSTEAD OF THE TAKING THE PREDICTABLE BORING ROUTE LIKE MOST PEOPLE DO WHEN THEY’RE INVITED TO A MASQUERADE BALL, ANNA WENT TO HER FRIEND, PETER DUNDAS, AND ASKED HIM TO CUSTOM DESIGN HER AN EXTRAVAGANT PUCCI BALL GOWN TO WEAR. TO MAKE THINGS EVEN MORE OVER THE TOP, SHE REQUESTED THE FEATHERED HEADPIECE FROM GARETH PUGH TO TOP OFF HER LACE MASK AND WHITE WIG. SHE TOLD ME HER INSPIRATION WAS LADY GAGA FOR THIS LOOK. I JUST HAVE TO SAY THANK GOD ANNA HAS FUN WITH FASHION BECAUSE SERIOUSLY WHO STILL DOES? ADR FOREVER!!!
