Long Live McQueen

Lee’s death has been personally excruciating for me.  News that one of my all time favorite Mentor, Muse, and Artist has ended his life, just took the wind out of my sails.  If only I could have told him like so many others, “you were my inspiration in Design School (and out).  I admired your sheer genius, intelligence & skill, your love for the dramatic& theatrical, your craft, the fluffy you, the skinny you, All of YOU!”  If only he might have been aware of how many people truly loved him, cared about him, adored and admired him, he may have been able to reach out to someone, at that very moment…turning back time. “This is Fashion’s candlelight of ingenuity being blown out forever, like the Music World losing Michael Jackson.  Lee (Alexander McQueen) was pure GENIUS!  His brain was a revolving door.  He consistently referenced History, Politics, Art, Culture, Emotions, Society and Events.  EVERYTHING he encountered was soaked up and eventually found it’s way into his magnificent work.  He had accomplished in a few years what it had taken fashion greats like Vivian Westwood, John Paul Gaultier & Versace years to achieve and he had the rest of his young life to continue setting the FASHION BAR.  Fashion will NEVER recover.  I will never forget the legacy he has left: LONG LIVE MCQUEEN

Self portrait of me in my favorite Alexander McQueen boots.  It was uncanny how they were perfectly toffee caramel brown…exactly like me.  When I wore them, it was like I was naked.  They were the first exquisite thing I bought when I received my first Modeling pay check.  Admittedly, I pretty much blew the entire check on them!

Me & Alex again (accompanied by some chain bling I made) at a test shoot recently.
Usually whenever I wanted to feel the McQ power and book that casting, wow a new client, or be out and about looking fly, I would be seen wearing them.

What Can You Do To Help?

On my way to NY for a job, the images of what is happening with the earthquake in Haiti are haunting me. As soon as I land will drop off my bag and meet Lorraine Alexis (pic below visiting orphanage in Haiti last summer). She works for a relief organization and is a medical student who has been visiting Haiti for several years. I’m hoping she may be able to tell me more and I could help in some way…

So I got off the plane, dropped my bag off at my apartment and straight to the train to meet my Haitian friend Lorraine Alexis as I wanted to hear firsthand her thoughts on family, friends and colleagues in Haiti. What I learned I can hardly put in words. Amongst the midst of chaos and uncertainty, Lorraine and fellow Haitian relief worker Cedric Desir (Voices of Haiti), were kind enough to give me their personal insights involving the chaos they and their family and friends are experiencing right this very minute. While they shared with me stories of lost and missing loved ones, what astounded me the most was their focus and hope filled plans for a better future for their homeland.

I am truly inspired.

dickies

Just returned home from a morning casting for the company Dickies and bummed cause I totally didn’t get the job!  They were asking for a size 4 (I’m a size  2 to 4).  Get this…the director said that I was too slim!  A little model secret: I even wore 2 pairs of boy shorts (just in case), hoping to add at least a half inch.   Maybe, I did sort of notice the director kind of staring at my strange undie-combo.  The model that did get the job just laughed and said, “Now this has got to be the only time that being bigger has ever been a good thing for me!”  As I was sulking on the opposite side of the fence to myself, “People are you kidding me…when does being too thin ever happen in model land?  So all you bigger girls out there, don’t go on a diet, cause there are certainly some great paying jobs out there for you too!  This is why I love my agent, Linda!  Even if a job may not be my stereotype, forte, or even skill, she believes in me so much, that she’ll always afford me the opportunity.  Love her!
