This Sunday, I hosted a screening of the House of Gucci Movie in Harlem. The film has a strong list of leading characters (Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Salma Hayek), and is all about how one woman almost single handedly severed ties between the Gucci family and their brand.

Go Where You Are Celebrated, Not Just Tolerated: New York Fashion Week Spring 2019 Day 1 in a Kimberly Goldson Suit and Gucci Crystal Sandals

Happy Saturday, from Las Vegas! Last week, I popped into Fashion Week for just one day to attend the Discount Universe show. Inspired by Harlem’s Fashion Row, I wore one of the featured designers, Kimberly Goldson, along with Gucci Accessories: I was recently quoted in New York Magazine’s the Cut, thrusting a spotlight on the lack of black bloggers on the front row during Fashion Week: I’ve been going to Fashion Weeks internationally since 2007, and it always seems to…
