Christmas memories: Fashion Team


Willie Johnson, Fashion Director

My craziest Christmas memory is when I got caught opening my Christmas gifts early. I got my ass BEAT! – Willie

 

 

Jasmine Anderson, Style Editor (KRAVE Fit)

 

I’d always “act” surprised on Christmas because I would ALWAYS snoop around the house and car when my mom was sleep or at work to see what she bought me waaay before Christmas! If it was clothing, I would try everything on and walk around the house & put everything back in the box before she wrapped it! Haha – Jasmine

 

 

Nina Charles, Fashion Team

I remember always receiving only one gift for my birthday and Christmas, since my birthday is right before Christmas. My mom used to have us open all of the crappy gifts which weren’t on our list and say ” Well ya’ll start picking up the paper and put away your toys” as if that was the end of it. As soon as the tears would start coming down our faces, my uncles would walk through the door with all that we had asked for! – Nina

 

 

 

Kenny Hibbler, Creative Director

 

I always remember snooping for our gifts…even unwrapping them sometimes. But the memory that always stands out is the year my father died.  My mother and her friends filled our entire living room with toys (I was 6 at the time)! they were lined up all around the room and around the tree. It was like we went to sleep and woke up to Santa’s workshop! We found out later they were in debt for months after but every year we do Christmas in a major way – with or without gifts! – Kenny

 

We’d like to hear your memories too! Feel free to post here or on the KRAVE Magazine FB page.

Happy Holidays!

So wherever you are and whomever you are…

RE-wind: The September Issue (DVD)


For those of us in the fashion and publication industry, The September Issue, was a must see upon its limited release in theaters nationwide. Chronicling the extensive production of the now infamous September 2007 issue of the fashion bible, the film provides a rare in-depth look into the work relations and lives of the iconic Anna Wintour, Andre Leon Talley, the ever amazing Grace Coddington and other Vogue staples.

The film is now available in a two box gift set that includes never before seen footage (trust me its worth the watch – a RIOT!)

Enjoy! I already have my copy and definitely use it for inspiration and reference!

Happy Holidays!

KRAVING: Lanvin x H&M Men’s Collection


We’ve all been waiting for photos of the H&M x Lanvin collection for MEN and I must say that I’m a bit underwhelmed by the offerings. I do admit though that the shoes have me excited. Hopefully they will be available at the retailer.

Enjoy!

We love when celebrities and entertainers push the envelope in their expressions of style. NecoleBitchie.com posted this photo today of Mr. Brown definitely portraying classic English style with a few accouterments of fashion forward accessories.

What do you think about Chris’ get-up? Love it or shove it?

KRAVE Her: Joan Smalls, Estee Lauder’s new Global Spokesmodel for 2011


KRAVE would like to congratulation Joan Smalls on being named the new global spokeswoman for Estee Lauder, a truly magnificent accomplishment for the Puerto Rican stunner and women of color.

 

From BlackBook.com “According to Estée Lauder Senior Vice President and creative director Aerin Lauder, selecting Smalls to represent the brand was an obvious choice: “She’s confident, happy, elegant, well-spoken, and grown-up—and it really comes through in her pictures. When we pick someone to represent the brand, it’s about her personality, too. It’s not just the face. You find yourself not being intimidated by her beauty, but drawn in by her warmth,” Lauder tells Vogue. Smalls will join the ranks of other global spokesmodels Constance Jablonski, Liu Wen, Carolyn Murphy, Hilary Rhoda, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Elizabeth Hurley, and has already filmed the first television commercial for her new gig.”

 

Many continued blessings and success for Joan. She’s representing Puerto Rican women and all women of color on a global scale! Do your thing mamita!
