Billboard Awards 2016

Last night musicians and celebrities alike gathered the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada for the annual Billboard Music Awards ceremony. The evening hosted by rapper Ludacris and Singer Ciara was a momentous occasion for many with rapper, The Week’nd earning the most nominations with twenty nods and pop superstar Britney Spears receiving the Billboard Millennium Award.

Manus x Machina

All the interweb is abuzz with the talk of the 2016 Met Ball, and like everyone else I was all too excited to see the red carpet looks. Manus x Machina is an interesting theme given the growing influence of technology on how most of the world’s fashions are created – with the dawn of 3-D printing, and print productions. etc.

Month of Amoure

And like that the count is on. One more down.

Despite being the shortest month of the year, February is also one of the busiest here in NYC, and to add to the chaos it’s a leap year – meaning one more day to cram in eve more madness! But all that aside, this month has been truly amazing with awesome experiences and insights for the year thus far. With only ten more to go and I am beyond excited for the coming month…it’s going to be fantastic!

But before we get into any of this month’s festivities, let’s take a look back at some of last months happenings.

Academy Awards 2016

Last night, the 88th annual Academy Awards presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences kicked off at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California. The ceremony hosted by actor/comedian Chris Rock honored the best films of 2015.giphy (10)

Much like the ceremony last year, this year’s show has been plagued with complaints about the Academy’s lack of diversity in it’s panel of judges and nominees, prompting many actors to opt out of the evening’s festivities, including one of the night’s honorees, screenwriter, director/producer Spike Lee.
