Baltimore native, artist and curator Cheyanne Givens created an event called 1914 affair where artist can express there talents, network and wear there best clothing that represent them. Last night I was able to attend the event and it felt like Afro punk after dark. When arriving we were greeted with a live band that were playing all the classics, then taking photos with the pixilated machine. During the 4 hour festivities there was live performances from known artist around the city with a band playing there hits. The crowd was very energetic and waiting patiently to see who was best dressed male & Female. Strangers With Style presented the recipients of the 1914 Affair’s annual male, female, and couple “Best Dressed” awards. Music artist Mike star won best male while wearing a fur and cool glasses.
The city of Baltimore need more positive energy and events like this. It gathered all creatives all in one room. Lastly there was a live rap cypher simarliar to the BET hip hop awards that took place. When guest we’re hungry they were different apeitizers walked around by beautiful models then meat balls and vegetables & wine was served. I look forward to the 6th annaual 1914 affair next year because it’s full of black excellence.

A new generation of streetwear emerges in the alternate universe of Gosha Rubchinskiy, who founded his eponymous brand in 2008. The Russian designer’s skate culture-inspired men’s ready-to-wear line recalls 1980s hip-hop and Soviet-era street style while establishing its own powerfully contemporary aesthetic. Classic crewneck t-shirts and sweatshirts come emblazoned with logo prints in Cyrillic and Mandarin, and logos combining the flags of the Russian Federation and the People’s Republic of China contribute a tongue-in-cheek nod to the two nations’ political tensions.

The VMAS 2016 was full of creativity. Rihanna kicked off the awards wearing all pink hood by air. Celebs on the red carpet took us by storm. Beyoncé showed up with her daughter and our hearts melted. They look like angels falling threw the sky.
Beyoncé, who confirmed at the last minute that she’s performing, chose a look from Francesco Scognamiglio’s Fall 2016 couture collection covered in sequins and featuring feather wings. She brought along daughter Blue Ivy, wearing a shiny top and massive tutu skirt with pink sneakers and hair extensions, as her date, and both looked like fairies from a far-off fashionable land.
Kim Kardashian just couldn’t decide what to wear, so she asked her Twitter followers to help. She asked 47.6 million fans whether she should go with a “casual chill look” or a “dressy sexy look,” and 52 percent voted for the latter. With that, the reality star selected a cotton minidress with ruching detail in the front and one shoulder purposefully pulled down. She wore lace-up heels and styled her hair in a fresh-out-of-the-shower kind of way.
All fashion killers we just added a new segment to Another Fashion Book were we showcase fashionable people from around the world every week! I would like to introduce you our second guy Dominick Lane. Mr.lane quotes Hi, I’m Dominick Lane and this year I decided to embark on a journey towards pursuing my dreams and aspirations. I’m 24 yrs old and I grew up In Baltimore Maryland (West Side) To be specific lol. And to get straight to the point I want people see that greatness comes from all over the world and that where your from doesn’t define where you’ll end up or what your destined to become. I want to show the world that coming from poverty can provide beauty and humility as well as many other great things. And growing up I’ve always known the great things Ive wanted to accomplish and where I wanted those accomplishments to take me but… Me being human I’m such a huge procrastinator at times and I’m working on that so (Djm)!!!
But… one day I told myself:
“Show The World Who Dominick D Lane Is”
My ultimate goal In life since then has been… To become the face of one of the worlds biggest modeling agencies known to man or woman lol. And once I succeed In that goal I assure you I do not intend to stop there.
My family/friends all know how modeling Is my passion so… please do not pull out a camera around me for a selfie cause I will turn It into a full blown photoshoot!!!
But on serious note I really wish to redefine a male model, I want to create my own Lane and call It the Dominick Lane… I don’t want just a chiseled body, serious face, and walk on runways. I wanna reach heights In the industry that has yet to be discovered. I want to create those heights I also want to create and energize or even re-energize fashion. And I believe that someday I will.
You hear/see people constantly bragging about who and what they’re wearing And me personally I think…. Are you wearing Brands or are all those brands wearing you??? When the world Is watching you are they watching your smile, Your demeanor, your personality through you fashion or are they just looking at your designer clothing. I like to think that style and fashion Is something that’s expressed through anything you wear… I always say…
“It’s not about who your wearing, It’s about your attitude In what your wearing no matter what the brand Is”
Young Thug, or Jeffery, is a rapper who is not afraid to push boundaries when it comes to clothing. The performer has been known to rock dresses (for adults and little girls) and is one of the few (but not only!) rappers out there challenging gender norms when it comes to fashion. Of course, Young Thug/Jeffery’s penchant for gender bending isn’t always embraced by a certain type of hip-hop fans, but others appreciate his edgy aesthetic.
The rapper just unveiled the cover art for his latest project, No, My Name Is Jeffery, which pictures him in a periwinkle ruffled skirt by Alessandro Trincone, a white top, and a pleated parasol-like hat. The cover actually looks similar to the image photographer duo Gioconda & August took of a male model in the piece from Tincone’s “Annodami” collection. It was styled by Stephon Allen & VFiLES
From the first day Alessandro Michele took over as Gucci’s creative director, we knew that something right would attract us to the established house, once again. The brain behind the brand led Gucci to the forefront of the fashion scene, both in terms of menswear and womenswear. Indeed, our favorite artists jumped on the refined bandwagon, wearing, nailing and rocking Gucci’s statement silk bombers, flowered pieces and loving loafers. Now the time has come to compile the list of the best dressed guys in Gucci, while getting some more inspiration. Celebs have been begging there stylist to get the latest from the showrooms and now Gucci is one of the hottest lately.
When losing massive weight your style will evolve! Rapper Gucci Mane was in prison for quite some time and was able to get get his weight under control. Deisgner clothing only go up to a certain size so he was able to start wearing stuff he probably dreamed to wear when he couldn’t. Also his salary probably is bigger & can afford a decent stylist. He’s now on house arrest an have been shooting music videos at his mansion with all the superstars. In the photo above he has on the famous Alexander McQueen and also been spotted wearing his favorite Moshino garments from there newest collection.
