Models, Red & Amber Rose

When I saw these photographs on the Red Models NYC blog I grew a smile on my face for menswear. Although this is a very simple photoshoot with simple styling it speaks volumes!

This model's name is Genaro Perez (Red Models). Although I've found he's quite an established model I dont see as much of his face as some of the othere cats down there in The Big Apple. Well not as much as these guys..and girl

Crazy Ass Sunday

 Sunday = a crazy ass day to say the least.  I'm just wondering what the world's coming to?

Well, enough craziness for one day anyway..

Firstly I go to Brick Lane after church just noseing through, passing time until my train comes at 4 past every hour (at least that's what I thought)and I find these crazy-dreadlocked-homeless-trolly-pushing men forcing there way through the packed crowd announcing "dead man walking". Seriously, I felt like I needed to go and sit on the curb and try and take it all in. Who the hell are these guys?

Secondly, I'm walking back from Beyond Retro, which I actually never find worth trekking off Brick Lane to, and a photographer approaches me and say the usual " I love your style". Im thinking oh kay fair enough he was well dressed after all.We exchange numbers whilst he small talks me about how much he likes my jumper. Nothing too out of the ordinary there you might mumble to yourself? Well as I was about to leave he referres me to his website,

Photographer- Sean Hickey, H-I-C-K-EY got it? Type that into google and you'll find my websites"

Me- Yeah

Matter of factly speaking it was a blog. Here's the link, actually no do what I did type Sean Hickey into google
Wait for this craziness...

 I should have told him I just came from CHURCH. Ye Church with Christ and God and things of that nature.

This guy is trying to turn me into one of his B*tches (Forgive me Lord). I honestly do not know what the hell he was thinking

Then thirdly as if this stuff wasnt enough I'm looking though who this photographer guy is and I find a Vicar has married a Nigerian male model, going by the name of Bobby Egbele,

This was like the tenth picture i saw of him that made me realsie i'd seen him before.

At Alternative Fashion Week in Spitafields Market.

Then I do some research and realise it's not him. Woomph! that was close but it just adds to the craziness of the day really

Apparently the vicar is more than 40/50 yers younger. He looks about 18 right? 58 years old vicar and 18 year old teenager...

Check him out though

I-D Magazine Photoshoot

When I bought the I-D edition that had this photoshoot in I did the the routine flick through to check i was getting my 4 is it 4 --checking I-D magazine laying around the room--  oh! £3.95 worth. Which is uneccesarry because I'm just going to buy it anyway, even if I can't afford it!

Up-and-Coming Model

You should all know I'm all about supporting black models and all that stuff. It's funny when people bring up why some people have made it so successfully and The Fashion Insiders always reply with something vague and pretentious like it's the structure of her face or she has an exotic/ethereal look. Some examples of this are women like Alek Wek who most definitely takes great shots but to the Black Community she's just another dark African.

I don't think anyone can truthfully claim to see world-class potential in the above photograph nor could you have suspected she would rise to the fame she has today

..and then we see her that when she actually gets behind the camera. Hair, Make-up, $2000 jacket (and photoshop) she would come out with a picture like this

....Or this! One of my favourite photoshoots of Alek Wek with a Tribal Theme (obviously) for I-D Magazine sometime last year.

Either way shes paved the way for another model from Sudan namely Nykhor (Red models) who has quite an uncanny resemblance to Miss. Wek. You know her much sent her black ass off to N Y as soon as they heard about Alek.
