The Little Black Dress
By LaRae Wilson
Chanel, Juicy Couture, Tori Burch, J.Crew, BCBG, Vera Wang, Michael Kors, just some of the few big names that were featured in this years Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York. Fashion week in New York has been a must attend event for any lover of fashion since its rst year in 1943. Although back in 1943 Paris was to be the only city with a fashion week of its own so fashion editor Eleanor Lambert whom organized the event named it Press Week. Originally Press Week was designed for fashion industry insiders that couldnt travel due to World War II, buyers were not allowed into the events and had to make private appointments with designers in their showrooms to see their new seasons line. Let us be thankful that in 1990 the event was altered to a public event so now we as fashion lovers can be up to speed on every seasons fashion trends. Patterns, prints, textures and bold colors were all amongst the most inuential designers this year.

Chanels line this year was very soft and romantic
with many dresses and long evening gowns all of
textures. Lace and chion incorporating feathers
and pearls were all of which tied her line together.
The color pallet was very intimate, mixing all
shades of whites and nudes with soft pinks and
black. The Chanel spring 2013 line was very
elegant and sophisticated, but then again when
isnt Chanel elegant and sophisticated?
Now for those who arent so girly the Michael
Kors line is perfect for you. Michael Kors line
is one of the favorites from this seasons show.
He kept his line very clean cut, very linear with
the use of bold colors. Using bold reds, greens
and blues and cleanly integrating them with
black to give the colors more of a pop. The
Michael Kors evening ware was fresh. It was all
black but he had very dierent cuts and peek-a-
boos within each gown that gave them the little
bit of sex appeal.
Now Juicy Couture took a slightly dierent path
into introducing their line, instead of a more
traditional runway show they screened a fashion
video, it was also the lines rst year in NYFW.
The star being Victoria Secrets very own angel,
Candice Swanepoe. The video was screened
outside of the famous Metropolitan Opera House,
viewers watched and sipped pink champagne.
Their line was very bold, using denim for dresses,
jump suits and jackets. Every look had a pop of
red, whether it being in the shirt, shoes or pants.
Prints were incorporated into short shorts and
jumpsuits, all very fresh and cute perfect for the
So for next season keep in your thoughts
fashionistas, bold colors! Bright reds and blues
and greens o set with black. As many articles
after NYFW have stated, Black is the new Black,
so dont be scared to take your outts to the dark
side bit. Also patterns, soft subtle patters such as
polka dots or doves. Then last but certainly not
least, mixing and matching dierent fabrics,
chion and lace and leather and denim.
Everyone has their own sense of style, so be bold
next season and try new things, mix and match
and have fun dressing up everyday. After all
fashion is the best way to express how we feel for
the day, next time you step out your door think
of the world as your very own personal runway.

AMERICA, CAN YOU
HANDLE THE TRUTH?
BY MARLIN BARNES
Gandhi's hand writing: "God is Truth. The way to Truth lies through Ahimsa (non-violence). Sabarmati, 13 March 1927, M. K. Gandhi."
Jack Nicholson made the term You cant handle the truth a famous phrase in the movie A Few Good Men, co-starring Tom Cruise. Nicholson played Colonel Nathan R Jessup, who is presumed to be behind the murder of PFC William Santiago. Unfortunately, for most of us, that phrase continues to resonant in everyday life. The truth is no longer the constant it was when the world and its movies were seen in black and white. No, the world is seemingly moving to Shades of Grey (much like the book) and the truth is being perversely blurred by the acceptance of each new rumor and speculation.
Journalism, which once was the trusted source of facts, is now the product of partisan philosophy and politics. Each outlet-at war with the other for ratings- has latched on to it preferred bloc of the viewing public. Media has trading the facts for perception to gain an edge in viewership. Despite the decline in manufacturing in the United States over the past two decades, the rumor mill is churning out record profits for its shareholders. We have bored of the Katie Courics and gravitated to the Wendy Williams of the world. Its a wonder this countrys moral fiber is so anemic and the reason how we have allowed ourselves to be manipulated into ungodly wars and preventable crisis.
I am reminded of God, on whom this country was allegedly built, and our declared trust in Him. We mark this declaration on every coin
and on every patriotic and political event. But has this declaration been one of truth or perspective? I pray the former. The fact isTRUTH HURTS! And since we really dont like to hurt (though we love to inflict pain on others) we dont readily accept it. For example, if financi
