With with Duro Olowu
My dearest friend Thelma Goldenâ€™s husband designer Duro Olowu was in New York for a trunk show at Barneyâ€™s and Vogueâ€™s Sally Singer gave him a wonderful fun dinner at Norwood in New York (It was also Duroâ€™s bithday!) Duroâ€™s clothes are a combination of couture shapes with African inspired prints and outrageous colors all in the best Italian and French silk. Thelma presented him a delicious red velvet cake with â€śbeet juiceâ€ť apparently the beet juice makes it red and not food coloringâ€¦ from Harlem bakery, Make My Cake. Happy Birthday Duroâ€¦ we love you!
With the crew from BET
Here I am in my office with the crew from BET for my Tyson Beckford interview. I wanted to highlight the people who are behind the scene who actually make us look and sound good on specialsâ€¦. from lighting, sound and intelligent questions. These are the same crew who did my Real Life Divas. Thanks to everyone!
With Sam Fine
I hosted a cocktail party/celebration launch in honor of my dear friend Sam Fineâ€™s new dvd, The Basics of Beauty at the famous Plaza Hotel in New York. This is a must buy this summer and for many more seasons to come as this is the next best thing to having Sam do your face. To follow all his tips and techniques all you will need is IMAN Cosmetics. Whenever I have an important event to attend I book him in advance as I will sure look my best in his hands. Great attendance by the beautiful and glamorous New Yorkers from Vanessa Williams, Deborah Cox, Wendy Williams and model Arlenis Sosa.
