PODCAST - Find out What the Movie "Pearl Harbor" & the Perfect Shade of Red Lipstick & Metrosexuality in Grooming All Have in Common on the Latest Installment of the In-List Videopodcast by Najwa Moses. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG & PODCAST - MP3 File
Trolling the town for fodder for her fab In List Videopodcast, Najwa Moses was recently at a loft party filled with "tall, beautiful Swedish people with small boobs" in Williamsburg. Suddenly, a seemingly normal looking middle-aged type - albeit with "teeth that looked like they had been bashed in" - sidled up, with the slick opening line: "you're on TV." Once he made it clear he had actually watched the In List, he swooped in for the kill. "He leaned in and before I could do anything, he planted this big, sloppy kiss right on my mouth!" Ah, such is the price of internet fame.
And what trends have registered on Ms. Najwa's finely calibrated trend-o-meter this week?
- COLOR, COLOR, COLOR Shedding their stereotypical all-black-at-night, trendy New Yorkers are opting for all shades of the rainbow. "People are wearing creams, oranges, polos in lavender, funky ties in different colors. Women are in different shades of reds and blue...plus lots of sparkle. Also, combinations such as lime green with hot pink."
- MAKE LIKE A MODERN DANDY A menswear look that gets big kudos from Ms.In List is taking classically cut apparel, and adding accents of colorful shoelaces, ties, hats & belts.
- A WORD OF CAUTION: BE TASTEFUL To avoid ending up as a Glamour Don't, heed this bit of advice from Naj: If you're going to sport myriad colors in the same outfit, don't show too much skin, and keep the cuts/silhouettes classic. "Make it tasteful!"
