REAKFAST @Saint Laurent

-By Mi’chele Daniels

B orn in Algeria in 1936,

Yves Saint Laurent, who's designs gained notice at the ripe age of 18 while studying fashion design at Chambre Syndicale de la Couture in Paris. During his 56 years in the fashion industry Yves gained recognition as one of the most influential and iconic designers of all time on account of his fashion brand, known today as Saint Laurent. Working under the wing of Christian Dior as a young designer and succeeding him as head designer at Dior after three short years Yves went on to open up a fashion house of his own, known then as Yves Saint Laurent funded by a millionaire from the U.S. Saint BRITTANY BYRD Laurent, along with his then FASHION DIRECTOR partner Pierre Berge birthed a brand that quickly began to rule the world of fashion. Bringing a renewed innovation to fashion not seen since Diors new look, Saint Laurent became the first couturier French brand to present a full prêt-à-porter (ready-to-wear) line, which debuted in the fall of 1966. Throughout the 1960's and 70's Saint Laurent went on to define the fashion of the decades with trends such as the popularization of the beatnik look in fashion and one of the most acclaimed, tailored tuxedo suits for women, the Le Smoking, The perfect balance of androgyny redefined the rules of women’s garb. Along with the creation of trends the brand also gave room for history to repeat itself, in a sense, with modern touches, bringing into their collections influences from decades past such as the 1920's, 1930's and 1940's.

A lthough backlash and criticism

regarding Yves lifestyle and health brought negative press to the brand YSL thrived throughout the 1980's and 1990's gaining copious amounts of recognition with not only the fashion elite but also the mainstream public. With help from various muses, for ad campaigns and or inspiration, such as London socialite Diane Vandelli in the 1980's and French supermodel Laetitia Castain in the 1990's, who likened her time working with the brand to a love story. During the grunge era of the 1990’s, which took fashion by storm, Saint Laurent played a principle role in the inspiration for many contrasting designers at the time.

K nown today as simply Saint Laurent the fashion brand has still remained at the top of the ranks as far as relevance in the world of fashion. Known as one of the most influential brands, with it came to the juxtapositions of coloring, even with brands such as Prada and Marc Jacobs have credited Saint Laurent in influencing their own collections today.

L iving in a day and age when media and fashion have never worked so closely Saint Laurent sightings are abundant. Whether it's your favorite celebrity donning Saint Laurent on the red carpet at an award show, pieces from the brand featured in a spread while you flip through a magazine in line at the market or simply the lady behind you in the lines classic Muse bag it is safe to say Saint Laurent in itself is beyond iconic and continues to be legendary. Led now by new creative director Hedi Slimane, who worked for the brand for two years in the late 1990's as collections and art director, Saint Laurent although undergoing reinvention will forever remain iconic.

ROYAL BINION: Sometimes working with a photographer can be a little nerve wrecking, especially when you plan on having them on a rooftop in 90 degree weather for 6 hours. However Royal’s demeanor never swayed, a breeze to work with, and not to mention we got some killer shots for our Blue Monday editorial.

RICKY BENNICK: A new kid on the block at only 25 years young, Bennick with his swift and youthful energy was a breathe of fresh air on set of Bang! ByJohnny Wujek. While Bennick is rather new to styling he has a rather fine-tuned and comprehensive eye that will take him far within the industry.

CONTRIBUTORS CHRISSY AND LISA ZOGALIS: The mighty duo! These two ladies and their infectious smiles on set of not one but two of our editorials this issue was a welcomed addition – not to mention they egg on my twerking, ha. While I still couldn’t tell you which was which, as some of the most professional and speedy makeup artist’s in the area, I’m elated every time they agree to work with me.

STEFANO CHURCHILL: Standing at a brooding 6’1 Stefano’s lightheartedness and playful spirit is truly refreshing. However exuberant he may be when it was time to become the ever so serious Mr. Johnny Depp, Stefano posed with pin perfection. Having a face that seemed to emote almost effortlessly his scenes within our Smells Like Teen Spirit editorial where a definite standout, amongst an already stellar cast. ANNEX MAN: BROOKLYN 13’

BRIAN ZIFF: A young photographer with a true passion for music it turns out, who just so happened to take some of the most stunning images I’ve helped produce. Ziff’s use of lighting is definitely one to be envied, along with his ease and laid back attitude made shooting our 54 editorial at the gorgeous Supperclub in Hollywood a magical experience, and I think the images created really capture the experience had.

Being a style maverick is about more than shifting and shaping your own style, it’s about shifting the cortex of society and being a true maverick. Johnny Wujek is one of the most successful and powerful stylist in the industry, with clients like Carly Rae Jepsen, Kate Mara, and of course America’s Teenage Dream pop phenom Katy Perry. Wujek along with Perry has burned some of the most iconic imagery of the last decade into our brains – I mean the whipped cream bra, c’mon. Now joining Tyra Banks’s America’s Next Top Model with Kelly Cutrone and Rob Evans Johnny is leaving no fashion stone unturned, and we can’t blame him. When you’re hot, you’re hot, and he’s hot.

MUST HAVE FALL COLLECTIONS edun

Robert geller

With exquisite styling by the likes of Melanie Ward the Edun collection epitomized a subset of the modern man. Edun’s Ricky Hendry didn’t just pluck references from one genre or era he delved into a plethora of them making a truly versatile and eclectic collection. So versatile that everyone from a prep to a businessman could find and integrateable piece.

Geller one of the most referential of the young designer clan, is also one of the most skilled in presenting such a periodesq collection while still feeling fresh, new, and oh so enticing. With a bevy of beautifully worked pieces from a pre Nazi era of berlin the collection felt now and sophisticated with a hidden Americano charm.

This style faux pas is slowly slipping out of it’s “under no circumstances” status. Within reason though, the exceptions always being Birkenstocks-for now, but Tevas, and flip-flops always. Designers like Prada, Marc Jacobs, Celine, Givenchy, and Dior all seem to be agreeing with us as they sent models stomping down the runway with covered piggly-wigglies and the occasional Sandal. Favored by many a fashionista from the United States to the ultra chic Parisians, the socks and sandys trend has been seen within the pages of international fashion magazines the world over and even in our very own Issue: Allan.

Standing at 6’1 with a boyish yet masculine pout and alluring squint the 27-year-old model repped in NY by click models is true powerhouse. Having worked with photographers such as Tony Duran and Rick Day and walked runways for everyone from Frankie Morello to DKNY since first appearing on the modeling scene back in 2007, now a veteran Fawcett still brings his legendary smize and rippling abs to runways and campaigns season after season.

Yep, it’s that time. The final season of AMC’s breakout hit Breaking Bad has commenced with it’s final season. The last 5 years with the meth cooking chemistry teacher Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and the lovable local drug dealer Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) has been nothing short of a wild ride. Now after staking up numerous awards the series is coming to a close. Promoted to be the most drama filled installment yet with White’s DEA brother in law finally knowing the truth, the last 8 episodes are sure to keep us on the edge of our seats.

BREAKING BAD BREAKS HEARTS

RIHANNA'S A GANGSTA 4 LIFE

The queen of the resurgence of the ratchet movement has finally given us a direct lifeline to her killer style once again making her one of the most adored fashion icons of the last decade. Her new collection for fast fashion retailer River Island is inspired by her athletic street chic style. The collection is predominately black, white, and camouflage, with loud prints, outline bareing midriffs all adorned with her nickname “RiRi” and “G4Life” (Gangsta For Life) - uh duh! it’s riri. “I want a sexy girl with super short hair and a dynamite self righteous personality”… said no man ever. And yet celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Ciara, Rita Ora, Anne Hathaway, Charlize Theron, Beyoncé and women alike seem more and more inclined to chop off their luscious locks in favor of a short doo. Why? Because, women are shedding the traditional shackles that are placed upon a socially perceived view of sex appeal. With that comes liberation, freedom, and a complete sense of self. A sex appeal too elusive to be contained into a 30 second Garnier Fructis advertisement. Not letting the locks define you seems to be a fall mantra, and if you’ve got the bone structure then why not take the pledge.

S H O R T H A I R DONT CARE

No, Ibiza is not some made up word thrown into party anthems as appropriate syllabic filler. It’s an actual island off the coast of Spain where people (excuse me, sheikhs) will pay €10,000 for a VIP booth at Pacha, the best nightclub in the world, and pour Veen (really expensive water) into spray bottles to wipe the table. The place is loaded with celebrities and the most beautiful Eastern European women you’ve ever seen. Is there really a place like that? Yes, heaven does exist for 5% of Earth’s population. Ibiza has long been touted as the party motherland for the rich and successful playboys of the world, and they’ve sold that dream to everyone… which is why we’re obsessed.

Mixing hues, rather than simply textures can make for a single color scale outfit that is just as visually appealing, if not more. A complete monochromatic look can be minimal with a clean and strong edge, as seen on these street style stars you can add layers, and accessories to be the perfect monochromatic man.

KHAKI SEASON Khakis aren’t just khakis anymore, they’ve grown to be a staple in the street style world. Young men, preps and hipsters are embracing khakis while conservative men are just warming up to the trend. Khakis are fantastic and allow expression with a basic piece. Khakis are versatile and fitting to your true style.

Any outfit can be taken to the next level by adding a motorcycle jacket. The biker jacket is definitely a wardrobe staple for men. A cool leather biker jacket advocates for the rough aesthetic and injects any outfit with the right amount of edginess.

Ever feel like some of your favorite artist, designers, stylist, or musicians remind you of another note worthy person – we do. We’ve collected a list of some of the hottest kids around well on their way to joining the icon class and dissected their aesthetic in relation to some of the greatest to ever do it.

Tina Turner + Michael Jackson = Beyonce If you want to turn a party out, leave it up to Tina Turner and MJ to do it for you. Both are an energetic duo that can captivate an audience not only with their music but costume, stage set and larger than life personalities. Well no wonder where Beyoncé got it. Today, one of Pop’s most iconic women of the 21st Century, Beyoncé does it all. Not only does she include the stage presence, respect, and costume of MJ, but she gives some of the best energy, hair, diva, and vocals of a young Tina Turner herself. A party isn’t right without at least one of the three on a playlist.

N

Nicholas Ghesquiere (Balenciaga) + Andre Courreges = Kate and Laura Mulleavy (Rodarte) A blend of geometrics and polished basics brings these two brands together to develop the concept for Rodarte. Ghesquière has always been an innovator for interesting angels, futuristic silhouettes, and a color pallet that rivals between colorful and neutral tones. Courreges was known for their abstract use of basic silhouettes, but adding asymmetrical details. Now when you put these two aesthetics together you get a modern day Rodarte. Collaboration between two the sisters is what makes this unique and elegant brand of today. With a play of vintage concepts these girls get the fashion industries attention every year.

You've worked in the entertainment business for over 30 years now. When you started out there were no social networking sites and now it's apart of our everyday life. How do you think social media has affected the entertainment industry? AM: I've been working for over 30 years?! (Yes, I am that old.) ML: Obviously social media has made a huge impact; it's given people a great platform to have complete creative liberty. It is also great for celebrities to interact directly with their audience. AM: Why do you think you've survived this industry for such a long time and are still going? ML: I have a strong work ethic; I try to be as diverse as possible. Great support system. I have been blessed and very lucky. AM: With your hectic schedule of hosting on" ExtraTV", "One on One" TV show , "On with Mario Lopez" radio show, and returning to X- Factor for the shows third season. How do you maintain such a youthful look and healthy lifestyle? ML: Thank you, first of all... I think I got lucky with genetics and my lifestyle isn't always so healthy but health and fitness is definitely a top priority in my life.

ICONIC trends i n fashion BY: ANTHONY E.

URBAN

90’s hip-hop era influenced from African-American culture was denim over load! High Top haircuts, bold tribal prints, baggy jeans with a mix of athletic wear with jogging jackets, sweats, and trainers from Nike’s Jordan, Adidas, Reebok, and K. Swiss. Trends of its time were based around iconic rappers/hip hop artist during this era; Tupac, Missy Elliot, Notorious B.I.G, TLC, Run DMC, Aaliyah, KC and JoJo, SWV and movies like “South Central” and Poetic Justice. During this time fashion brands like Cross Colors, Timberland, Tommy Hilfiger, Guess, Phat Farm, and FUBU were among the most profitable labels. In the largest sense the urban 90’s was the first “ratchet movement” popularized of late by current artist like Rihanna, Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, Drake, Kanye West, and A$AP Rocky and trending on runways and in streetstyle by brands like Joyrich, Givenchy, Dimepiece, and Brian Lichtenberg.

grunge “Grunge is

nothing more than the way we dress when we have no money” said to VOGUE in 1993 by designer John Galliano. Inspired by hardcore punk bands of the Seattle Washington area. The angst filled writhes of Kurt Cobain’s Nirvana and Eddie Vedder’s Pearl Jam fueled one of the most rebellious generations of all time – but then again what generation of youth wasn’t rebellious. In the 90’s a young grunge kid was easy to spot, usually cloaked in ripped flannels and tattered jeans, atop a vintage pair of Dr. Martens or All-Star Converse with their disheveled hair tucked in beanies and baseball caps. While initially reluctant to embrace the movement –see Marc Jacobs removal from Perry Ellis, the fashion industries heavy exploitation of grunge brought about some of it’s most iconic moments and designers such as Jacobs, Vivienne Westwood, Anna Sui, Christian Francis Roth, and Betsy Johnson.

Dancewear In some ways the 80’s had it right on the money when it came to dancewear, some of which even transitioned into everyday wear with the rise of the aerobic craze. Knee high slouchy socks, body suits, tights, headbands, hair scrunches, of the shoulder shirts, and bold neon prints/colors. Workout videos by Richard Simmons and Jane Fonda, Olivia Newton-Johns music video “physical”, dance-themed shows such as the wildly popular “Fame” and “Staying Alive” and the 1983 film “Flashdance” also helped to bring dancewear to the streets. Dancewear still finds its inklings in today’s fashion and trends, tights are still worn as pants and the off the shoulder sweater is a mainstay for the sexy casual look. ANNEX MAN: BROOKLYN 13’


hippie

A youth movement In a rebellion against the strict and stringent upbringing of the 50’s, the 60’s was all about peace, love, and harmony. With its fundamental ethos of harmony with nature, communal living, artistic experimentation, and widespread drug use, the 60’s almost had the 20 beat in the art of having a carefree time. During the 60’s we saw the rise of the bell-bottom, hand made tie-dye shirts, intricate batik fabrics, and the paisley shirt. With Woodstock in full swing somewhat reminiscent of the popular Coachella festive of today, which a lot of the Bohemian chic style is derived from, except with a more try hard attitude where the hippies couldn’t careless the hippies were the opposite of the mods. The hippie movement like most youth movements was more about the attitude and freedom of expression than the fashion.

greaser

Originating from U.S. street gangs and eventually being adapted by the masses as an expression of rebellion, with the name greaser referring to their slicked back hair. They swore by their 501 Levi’s and leather jackets that were a cause for effortlessness, which made this ultra-macho, look all the more appealing. The American Greaser was the pitch perfect picture of masculinity and they knew it. The greasers go down in history as being one of the first to don the motorcycle style giving the American birth to the iconic leather motorcycle jacket and harness boots, and are to this day the modern day cowboys riding the asphalt wave without a care in the world but fighting for the man next to you.

d eco nstru cti o n

mod

The time of simple asymmetries and radical color combinations all rooted from a small group of stylish young British men. The 60’s rocked some of fashion’s trendiest styles that are still alive within lots of the collections of today. The 60’s were the decade of the Mondrian dress, tailored silhouettes, women’s androgyny, Skinny Tie’s, short angled haircuts, stripes, circles, and of course the mini skirt. During the mod era there was an onslaught of beatniks with their beret’s and black turtlenecks, and Teddy Boy’s with their immaculate Dandy looks which was one of the first assurgences of the rise in a males interest’s in fashion and it being socially acceptable – making Dandy’s one of the first modern men.

Sparked seemingly by the garb of the homeless with old world Japanese infusions of volume and layers, the popularity of the deconstructors came to prominence due to an anti-fashion movement against the over glamorized look of brands like Gucci, Valentino, and Oscar De La Renta. A select few Japanese designers Rei Kawakubo, Yohji Yamamoto, and Junya Watanabe who was Kawakubo’s apprentice in the 80’s led the movement. The premises of deconstruction is that of making a garment looked of the unfinished of tattered nature. Deconstructed designs are scene with frayed or unfinished hems, rips, tears and holes, general asymmetry, mixing of patterns and fabrics, complete dissimilation of standard silhouettes, and on occasion even flame burns. Yamamoto who is known for his twisted forms of layering and Kawakubo who is known for her drape and ultimate deconstruction turned fashion on it’s head, and continue to prove to be some of the most innovative and forward thinking designers of the time, shifting and molding new silhouettes and creations season after season.

10

They made us writhe in our seats, break the rewind button, and gave us oh so pleasant dreams. These 10 scenes have gone on to become some of the most iconic sex scenes in movie history. Whether it be for their off the Richter level of passion or for their ground breaking nature these daring fantasy driven moments will forever be ingrained in the psyche of pop culture.

Mickey Rourke + Kim Basinger Nine 1/2 Weeks (1986)

The title of the film refers to the duration of a sexual relationship between Wall Street arbitrageur John Gray (Rourke) and SoHo art gallery employee divorcé Elizabeth McGraw (Basinger). Their sexual relationship escalates throughout the movie as they elevate the danger of their affair by partaking in sexual acts in the most public of places. As they playfully hop into an alley as the rain is pouring down, a pipe showers down water on them, and they start ripping each other’s clothes off hitting a climax of regards in their Nine-½ week sordid soiree. The scene is still a wet dream enducing scene for Basinger and for a now awkward Rouke his hottest to date - I mean getting “head“ in the rain, c’mon.

MOST ICONIC SEX SCENES

A true forbidden teenage love affair crossing class lines a penniless artist Jack Dawson falls for Rose Bukater, a 17 year old first class passenger during their disastrous journey to America on the Titanic in April 1912. But before the fated voyage reaches is destination at the bottom of the ocean the 2 star crossed lovers leave one of the most iconic handprints in history. After escaping Rose’s fiancé’s bodyguard the two finally consummate their relationship in an oh-so sweaty and lust filled scene shot in the back of a Packard Limousine.

Leonardo DiCaprio + Kate Winslet Titanic (1997)

the 60’s Ennis (Ledger) and Jack (Gyllenhaal) 2 brooding cowboys one cold night, after they’ve both been drinking decide their friendship should move to a more physical level. After a slight scuffle over personal space, with both pushing back violently the scene comes to a climax when the too collide in the most suggestive of manners. The affair carries on for decades, ending in the very disturbing “gay bashing“ murder of Jack seemingly tied to his foregin trists in mexico where he’d regularly vist in Ennis’s absence. As one of the most prominent gay themed movies of all time the movie went on to win numerous awards for cast and director a straight Ang lee.

Bill Bob Thornton + Halle Berry Monsters Ball (2001)

Hank (Thornton) a racist white man, who befriends a black single mother named Leticia (Berry) who’s husband he’d recently executed at the local penitentiary. By the climax of the tumultuous and sometimes awkward relationship Hank realizes that he’s develope d feelings for the woman. Leticia in the heat of a late night begs Hank to make her feel good enticing the demoned prison guard, the ravishing lustful scene is rife with sexuality and went on to make history with Berry winning the Academy Award for best actress, a first for any woman of. Berry joked on stage that all it took was for her to show her breast to finally be recognized by the largley white Academy of voters. ANNEX MAN: BROOKLYN 13’


Naomi Watts + Laura Harring Mulholland Drive (2001)-

Tom Cruise + Rebecca De Mornay Risky Business (1983)

You could debate, that “Mulholland Drive”, in a way, is almost entirely a sex scene - a guilt-ridden fantasy as failed actress Diane grieves the woman that she’s in love with, whom she’s hired a hit man to kill. However one stands as one of the most iconic sex scenes of all time, in which Watts nervousness and uncertainty -”Have you ever done this before?” and almost reluctance to believe her own luck, makes it not only sexy, yet increasingly romantic. And by the time they’ve finished there’s a pain riddled throughout the scene, knowing that Betty/Diane is remembering, better times with the woman she had just murdered.

Left alone, with the family house and Porsche at his disposal, in the wealthy northern Chicago suburbs, Joel (Cruise), through his scheming friends, finds himself entertaining lady of the night Lana. The two eventually fall madly for each other and the night consists mainly of them copulating, including the iconic steam worthy scene on the deserted Chicago ‘L’ train. Probably one of the most mainstream interpretations of public sex to date. Ther’s no doubt this scene has been reenacted all over the world and also helped catapult a very pretty but unknown Tom Cruise into the household name he is today.

The tale of a New York City relationship, while loving and solid, lacks romance and passion, causing wife Connie (Lane), to begin an affair with an exotic Paul (Martinez). There are many erotic sex scenes between Paul and Connie however one of the greatest is after Connie sees Paul with another women. She attacks him and they start to fight, the anger and frustration of the situation soon turns to a heated passion serging through lustful stares as the couple then begins to slowly make love standing against a wall with Connie’s head planted aginst the wall dripping in the rain from a New York city fall shower feeling Paul’s deep embrace.

The undisputable and uncomparable chemistry between New Orleans Detective Lieutenant Remy McSwain (Dennis Quaid) and A.D.A. Anne Osborne (Ellen Barkin) comes to a head in “The Big Easy” when with her shirt unbuttoned and half on Anne seemingly unknowingly bates Lieutenant McSwain. While in the depth of the exchange Anne stops the steamy love scene saying she can not continue because she is too nervous and can’t relax. Remy’s response is simple as he starts to guide his hand back up her leg and under her skirt, “Relax Darlin’. This is the big easy. Folks have a certain way of doing stuff around here.”

Everyone’s born with one special thing, and Eddie Adams (Wahlberg) uses his to take the world of pornography by storm during the industries golden age of the 1970’s. For the filming of his first scene an implied 17-year-old Eddie embarks on a sexual tirade with the much older Amber Waves (Moore) a veteran porn mistress, the scene goes on to spark a massive career for Eddie and a series of dubious events. However, Boogie Nights is less a film about pornography than the comic story of a group of misfits, losers, and lost souls who are embraced by Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds), a director who makes “adult films, ANNEX MAN: BROOKLYN 13’

Tom Stall (Mortensen) confesses to his wife Edie (Bello) that he’s really mobster-onthe-run Joey Cusack, and the pair get into a heated argument in the staircase of their home, an argument that turns violent, and suddenly sexual, as it appears that Tom/Joey, is going to rape his wife. Suddenly, he stops, but then she urges him to continue, the two desperately go at it on the stairs with a passion blazing scene. Taking the audience on a rollercoaster of emotions not knowing whether Edie should escape or pray she’d never let go. History of Violence has gone on to become classic minting the scene in a history - of film an sex.

AM: When did you consider pursuing acting as career? MM: My whole life acting was always that dream in the back of my mind that seemed way to far fetched to even take seriously. I played Football my whole life and that was my first love, so acting took a backseat. But, I always have, and to this day, watch a STUPID amount of television and movies (Laughs). So once football was over I told myself to stop being a coward and just do it! And from that moment it's been on! Believe me, if you have a plan, a hard work ethic and skill to match your courage you can achieve anything! I just love acting. I still get excited to go to the movies, get a small bag of popcorn, small coke, and just slip away into this pretend world! Without sounding too corny, it's the only thing that gave me the same feeling football did. The rush, the excitement, the teamwork, the sense of accomplishment. And you can NEVER be the best! You might where the crown one year, but the next could be totally different! You constantly have to work hard, grow and adapt. There's no end! And I love that. AM: On Graceland you played Joe "Johnny" Tuturro, How much of yourself did you put into your character "Johnnyâ&#x20AC;?? MM: I believe actors ALWAYS put a lot of themselves in their role. No matter how different the character may seem from them personally, there's still something inside them that allows them to go to that place in their mind. All you have to do is be able to relate, the rest will fall into place with hard work. Me and "Johnny" do have a lot in common. We both have a big heart, very loyal and are very sensitive. But, unlike "Johnny", I'm not always laughing and joking. I mean, yes, most of the time I am in a great mood (laughs), life is amazing. But I am very much an introvert. I like to read, write, and just have some good alone time to focus and put things into perspective. So yes "Johnny" and I are very similar and different at the same time.

Now-a-days shows don't last long especially sitcoms, there aren't even a lot out now so its great to be a part of a hit sitcom…and to have the fans love it in such a big way...such a blessing.

He isn't the best baby-sitter…but he is a really great friend and that’s all that matters... he is growing. He is getting over his past relationship and ready to move on. We get to meet his parents in season 3 so that’s going to be interesting. He is growing in his job as well. So yeah he has a lot of layers to him as well. AM: What was the audition process like for Baby Daddy, and how did you prepare? TM: It was fairly easy and painless. I was the last character casted for the pilot and met with The producer and director right away. AM: You found fame at a young age; did you find it harder trying to secure rolls, as you got older? TM: Not really I gave myself a break in high school and so when I came back it was almost like I was missed which was a great feeling to have. Its all about choosing those right roles as well. I can thank my mother for that who is also my manger. She is a go-getter and a genius when it comes to this business. AM: You come from a pretty successful family; your sisters are also actresses. Was there ever competition between you guys? TM: Not at all! I mean we love when the other is working and gets something good. We are family and it’s all about supporting one another, and its not like I'm up for the same roles as them lol. AM: You decided to step away from acting for a while, what made you make such a decision and do you regret it at all? TM: I was a huge football guy. I ended up getting a d1 scholarship as well, so I just wanted to focus on that and just be in high school and be a normal student. And I'm so glad I did that. Sometimes its god to step away and take a break and just live life but as you can tell I'm back and it’s so I clear I missed acting. Its what I do! AM: While you’re a pretty great actor, you are also a talented vocalist. Do you have any plans of ever recording an album or maybe staring in a musical? TM: YES! Music is super important to me and it’s a passion of mine. I’ll probably get back in the studio to work on some material during out next big hiatus from the show. I want to be able to take my time and really create something unique and different. So a album is definitely coming in the future and I would LOVE to live in NYC for a while and work on a musical. That’s one of my dreams. AM: What can we catch you doing when you aren't in front of the camera? TM: Oh you can always catch me dancing or singing... MAN: BROOKLYN BY:ANNEX ROSHADA POWELL 13’

My biggest motto is to really really listen to what your client is asking for not get stuck on what you want. AM: How’d you get your start in the celebrity realm of hairstyling?

AM: You’ve tamed the most famous mane in the world, Beyoncé. What was that experience like? CR: I love love me some B!! She was honestly one of the most well-mannered kindest celebs I’ve ever worked with. It was very exciting to work with someone I admire. She is fun on and off the set!!

AM: Is there a hairstyling icon that you look up to, and wish to mold your career after?

AM: You are also responsible for the EPICNESS that is Ciara, how do you guys collaborate?

CR: I have many icons. I grew up in this industry learning from the Vidal Sassoon techniques I think he was a genius. I love Oribe for what he’s done with Jlo and many other celebrities. Orlando Pita and his fierce looks on Madonna in the 90’s. Julien D’ys is the most extraordinary and revolutionary fashion and editorial hairstylist. I was lucky to assist him for a bit when I started and I pray to one day be as innovative as he is.

CR: Ciara and I communicate a lot at all hours of the day and night we must be on each other’s speed dial. Hahaha! She tells me how she is feeling and where she wants to go according to the project we are doing. I sit and research until I come up with my epiphanies and its usually spot on.

AM: Do you prefer being stationed in a salon or traveling the world with your clients? CR: I have a love hate relationship with the salon. It’s my roots and the foundation of who I am without it I couldn’t be where I am. Even though now I’m only in the salon 3-4 times a month my salon clients ground me, but traveling the world and creating moments that are recorded in pop culture and fashion history its my dream come true. AM: Do you approach men and women’s hair the same, or do you have a different eye for both? CR: Men and women’s hair are totally different so I have to say for the most part I do approach them differently. Ultimately everyone wants something that looks good and makes him or her feel good plus fits their lifestyle. AM: What are some trends in men’s hair you think are on the horizon, and should have people taking notice? CR: I think color is still a growing trend in men’s style. When done properly it can be really cool. I loved the super clean retro looks for so long but now I’m thinking it’s about having a classic shape with a messy finish, very British.

AM: You’ve even wrestled with the Jonas Brothers is it easier working on male celebs rather than females? CR: Technically yes!!! There is just less physical work to do with men. They tend to be more easygoing and less high maintenance. Well at least my male clients have been. The Jonas Brothers are great guys with great natural style so that makes it easy as well. I have. It’s not luck it’s hard work!

CN: Design is knowing when to stop in the process of creating. Reach deep inside and connect with what feels right regardless of any supposed guidelines. AM: Who are some of the iconic designers you look up to? CN: Geoffrey Bradfeild AM: So far what’s been one of the proudest moments of your career? CN: Winning Showhouse Showdown on HGTV AM: From a very young age you were intrigued by so many different professions, how did you finally decide to devote the majority of your time to Interior Design? CN: My journey becoming an interior designer evolved. As a boy I loved to draw and paint and create custom jewelry and sell it. As I grew up I decided that being an entrepreneur would serve me best for a successful life, thus leaving my art behind. Many companies later I found myself back in design with graphic with my printing company. I then realized I was an artist before a business man. I then got into doing faux finishing and Vene`tian plaster and started another company. Shortly after that I woke up and had an epiphany that I was meant to not just finish walls in homes but to finish everything in a home! I sold my companies and started Charles Neal, the company grew exponentially proving that I finally found my place in this world as an artist. AM: Do you think drive and determination was instilled in you as a young child, or was this something you innately picked up on? CN: I believe my drive and determination was innate. I knew from the beginning that I was destine to be different and do more than the average person. AM: What has been some of the best advice you’ve ever received? CN: My mother told me you get more flies with honey than vinegar. So I get a positive and pleasant attitude no matter how stressful work can get, and it always seams to work out. AM: What advice would you give to young up and coming designers that wish to make a mark such as yourself?

AM: Every successful person has kind of that moment where everything kind of changes and they realize that they are truly on their way, what was that turning point for you in your career.

AM: Is there anything in particular that inspires your design esthetic? And how would you describe your esthetic? CN: The baroque era and high fashion inspires me. I also get intrigued with jewelry from all eras. I describe my aesthetic as baroque modern.

CN: After completing Kim Zolciacks home from scratch. I walked through and saw all go my selections that I fought her on throughout the pro- AM: Are there any designer rules of your own cess and realized it was worth it! that you never break? AM: You seem to honestly love what you do, and obviously are rather good at it. What do you love most about our job?

CN: Never paint walls solid light beige, always start the design with my floors and walls first, the right scale always takes precedents, push for more then you can always pull back.

CN: I love that my job is excited and ever changing. I get to meet the most intriguing interesting people and create new art with there money, could it get any better?

AM: When you were young you started a lemonade stand, what was the namae of that stand? CN: Lemonade stand was just lemonade 1.25, lol. By: Christen Radford
