Thanks for your support with the Island Style hottie nominations. This week's winner took top billing because she supported two local designers, has a SICK body, and brought MAJOR style points to the party.
Congratulations to Gabby of Sistah Souljahs Graphics and Sista Souljahs Sound.
I especially love her camo print at the back of the pants - it was a total surprise- and she nailed it. Her pants were designed by Glamourpuss 268, whose designer is Ronda George. You can find her on instagram at _itsrellah. Her top was designed by "Dreads n Threads" - which is run by Malika Mingo & Veronica Nelson.
Gabby's outfit fits like a glove- and though it would be hard for some girls to pull this off, on her it looks sexy and appropriate - as she is in the entertainment business - she IS her brand.
I hope we can start seeing more local designers get some shine at the upcoming events.
Congrats to Gabby for her Blue Jeans fashion risk - it paid off.
This week's style stand-out was someone who went with one of the biggest trends for the summer- the jumpsuit.
I'm a big believer in wearing something that "fits" where you're at. This look would not work for a different fete, but to be honest, this look exemplifies everything that White Fete used to be about.
While looking through the White Fete albums and the pictures you submitted, it was hard to pick a winner- mainly because everyone is wearing the same color; but this year more than most,the outfits all mirrored each other in that most were short dresses with mesh cutouts.
We chose a look that was complying with the dress code, while injecting some much needed personal style.
