  • Life’s a drag

    “That moment when Tricky dressed in drag and owned it like a BOSS. I live for the black lip-liner and silver lipstick. My Mum still has her's from her Church going Sunday's, when I was little I always used to sneak it on and have to clean it off before a service. Tricky you inspire me.”

  • That Toni moment

    “That moment Toni Braxton wore that dress in her video 'Wasn't Man enough for me'. Unforgettable. I can still remember her intimate performance on TOPT *sigh*.”

  • Under the cherry moon

    “The moment when Neneh Cherry served you badass inner city mama realness. Long live the queen, the jewellery is MAJOR.”

  • Smooth operator

    “And top of the list has to be Sade on the 3rd October 1993 performing at the Open Air Theatre in San Diego. I literally DIE for this baby pink two-piece fish tail number. She WORKED that stage with elegance and class, its like she's floating barefoot across the stage warbling her warm tones through your soul. All hail the African Queen Helen Folasade Adu.”
