Color on the Cover: Rosario Dawson on New York Times Style Magazine

rosario-dawson-nytimes-sunday-magazine Actress Rosario Dawson takes over the women's fashion spring 2009 issue of the New York Times Style magazine--and she looks delectable! The Seven Pounds star and New York native (she was discovered on a stoop in Manhattan's Lower East Side neighborhood) also opens up in the magazine's revealing "Screen Test" series, where she reflects on The Rocky Horror Picture Show (which left the biggest impression on her), nudity on film and her mother unorthodox way of disciplining her (she licked her face)!

Ga Ga: G-Star Raw’s Runway Show With Benicio Del Toro And Wendell Lissimore

Blindie was front and center at G-Star Raw's Fall/Winter 2009 runway show on Tuesday at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom along with Star Trek's Zoe Saldana, 90210's Shenae Grimes, and Make Me A Supermodel's Tyson Beckford. We were pleasantly surprised to see Ga Ga-worthy model Wendell Lissimore walk the runway and cheered with everyone when G-star's new "Icon" Benicio Del Toro came out to read Joy Division's "Candidate" before the finale. The show began with black and white formal attire reminiscent of the 1930s and 40s--we even spied a women's variation of a bowler hat. The bygone era then seamlessly gave way to G-Star's quintessential military stylings--early aviator and sailor inspired ensembles adorned with dramatic collars, and straps and buckles that would make Edward Scissorhands proud. Two live pianists played a dramatic classical score throughout that evoked the beauty and gravity of both the silent film era and the future. Blindie is ga ga for G-Star Raw and we are making it our new religion!

Color on the Cover: Sessilee Lopez Checks Fashion Industry for Dismissing her as a ‘Black Girl’ on Latina Magazine

Dominican/Portuguese beauty Sessilee Lopez is the latest cover girl for Latina Magazine--and she's dropping some knowledge on being pegged "a black girl" in the fashion industry. "They automatically think I'm from Africa or Somalia!" she criticizes of the fashion industry, which she says immediately dismisses her as, "'Oh, You're a black girl!'" Of being compared to black modeling greats Grace Jones and Iman, Lopez says, "That's awesome. Are you kidding me? Me? I'm just me--I'm just this little dork!"

It is a flavour that is different from anywhere else.” Other covers feature greats Kate Moss and Twiggy, and newcomers Agyness Deyn and Lily Donaldson.

New York Fashion Week: Spend a Day with Model Sessilee Lopez

It was only in January when Blindie reported on model Sessilee Lopez's hot Calvin Klein ads, and now the Philadelphia-bred stunner is taking over New York Fashion Week. In a video diary for the New York Daily News, Lopez chronicles her first full day at fashion week last Friday from a fitting for Marc Jacobs to walking for Jason Wu. "I have fairly small feet for a model so I always run into shoe troubles," the 20-year-old model confesses. "I'm stuffed in and taped and glued down but that doesn't really help. At every show my heart is in my throat right before I walk out."

New York Fashion Week: Laotian-American Fashion Designer Nary Manivong Interviewed By Patrick McMullan

New York-based fashion designer (and friend of Blindie) Nary Manivong debuted his latest collection at New York Fashion Week on Thursday, and Blindie got a hold of his recent interview with famed photog Patrick McMullan for NBC. For those who don't know Manivong yet, the Columbus-bred designer has lived a life that could be made into a hit rags-to-riches story (in fact, a documentary based on his life, titled Dressed, will be debuting at film festivals this spring): At 14, the Laotian American designer, his twin brother and two younger siblings were homeless, abandoned by their parents and Manivong did his best to support himself and his siblings. After graduating from high school, the ambitious youngster moved to New York with $200 in his pocket and a dream of becoming a designer. Blindie is ecstatic to see that Manivong is making moves this season with his strongest collection yet--and a spirit that helps fuel the craziness that is New York.

Blindie EXCLUSIVE: Catching Up With Model Pierre Woods Before New York Fashion Week

In preparation for Fashion Week, Blindie caught up with Ralph Lauren's model-on-the-rise Pierre Woods to get his take on some of the weighty issues that a fashionable man has to tackle. Boxers or Brief?: "I'd prefer boxer briefs...but if I HAVE to choose...I'd say briefs because they're better to wear for working out." Beyonce of Sasha?: "I'll have to say Beyonce. The name Beyonce bounces off the tongue better" Mariah or Mimi?: "The Emancipation of Mimi was a good come back album for her...So that makes this one tough...I'd say the winner of the split decision is Mimi." Chanel Iman or Iman?: "This one is easy, Chanel Iman. She's a very talented and sweet girl and her mom is amazing too. I worked with her on the 2008 Holiday shoot for Ralph Lauren. We did a shoot together on a Ski-Doo (snowmobile) that wasn't used, that I'd love to have in my book." Chanel Iman and Pierre Woods in a shoot together? Blindie would love to have that in our books also!
