Essence Magazine Street Style at Fashion Week

After leaving the InStyle Magazine Lounge I walked across to The Lincoln Center. @Essenceonline was filming their Street Style segment and asked me to be a part.

Essence Music Festival:3rd Day

Some of the Essence.com staff hanging out in the Belvedere VIP Music Lounge @belvedere_vodka was one highlight. After 4 days of working hard and long hours we just wanted to all hangout amongst each other and just have a great time. Usually, everybody work so hard that we don’t get to enjoy the Essence Music Festival but this time it was amazing. We ended the late night by going to the wrap party with all of the staff of Essence Magazine. We all said our good-byes and the crew returns back to New York to start planning for 2011.

Pre Essence Music Festival

 I started my EMF weekend doing makeup on one of the ladies from Essence Magazine. When I was told that Mikki Taylor, Editor-at-Large requested me once again I was ecstatic. She needed makeup for the private reception on Thursday evening. Mikki is an icon, a jet setter, an insightful visionary, an industry leader, a phenomenal woman, and most of all she oozes beauty.
The highlight of the evening was receiving a personal call from Mikki to return back to the hotel. She invited up the penthouse to chat amongst friends. It was one of the best experiences ever.
There have been many times when people will  say to me, “why weren’t you in the club?” or “we didn’t see you backstage”. But where I was that evening,  is where a person in my career should have been and was privileged to be. This is how I kicked off my…ESSENCE MUSIC FESTIVAL.
