I went off site to Ultra to see the Belstaff Show … I forget how many Blockbuster movie actors they have provided wardrobe for. Tom Cruise in”The War of the Worlds” and Leonardo DiCaprio in ” Aviator “.
The Models were all from Nam, ( http://www.namemodels.com ) and even though the stage was tiny, they worked it. I love Belstaff’s Pieces, I am not surprised the celebs love them so much.
I just want to write a bit about the fact that the crowd at Ultra was super dry and it pissed me off. Jarvis Church was performing and to start off, the intro of him was weak and silly, as if he was a new Artist and not a Canadian Music Icon. Hello people, the “Philosopher Kings” – simply an amazing Band that has had major hits.
People were caught up into trying to be cool and couldn’t really listen.. or realize what a pleasure it was to see him perform, Jarvis has a beautiful voice!!!! I didn’t care I stood up.
I don’t have a clear image ..which annoyed me more. But you get the feeling.
When is this city going to support their own, when are they going to stop being afraid to feel the music deep. What happens is, too many look to the USA and get wrapped up into those artists and the reason why they are killin’ it is cause they get their props, support…crowd Vibes from their own fans!!
I know i am ranting… but i was Pissed off.
Wake Up Toronto… Wake up!
So where was Tru last night:
Sunday 13th September was the official launch of the Canadian Black Film Festival
and The African Heritage Festival and we intend to celebrate in style. Cinema Noir will be an annual reception each and every year: a place for those working in the industry to mingle, network and connect in a stylish location.
Paying tribute to the many Canadian Artists that are part of the rich film, television and theater industry we have in this Canada.
So i slipped on a strapless draped Black dress but instead of going classic i added a White corset and Knee-high Boots.That made sense for a with girl Mohawk.
Off i went to:
MANYATA Courtyard Cafe, Yorkville.
I have to say i got a little annoyed at the door because a certain someone forget to leave the correct envelope with my name and ticket. So my ticket was there but with a different name on the envelope.I was ready to take my behind home.I dont like to have any fuss at the door.
Then a wonderful gentleman decided… oh no you can have my spare ticket.The Universe worked it out.
I really need to pay attention to who i was suppose to meet/ network and of course friends i hadn’t seen in a while.
One card i definitely took was that of “Saidah Baba Talibah” ..wow powerful name ..for a powerful energy.Today i went online to get a feel for more of her music.
Even though we had met a long ago… but i never got a chance to see her perform.
Judging from the video i have just watch…. oh i am going to change that.
her Blog: http://www.saibabat.blogspot.com
Roxanne DeNobrega did her makeup for the event… Roxy is amazing.. she is my makeup artist for my fashion shoot.I knew what to expect…strong eyes beautiful skin.
I also manage to get some cool style images for Stilomag.com there were people Slamming Style in my face that night
So in the next couple of issues you never know you might see yourself.
Ciao ..till next time
