Filipino hottie Diether Ocampo is a renaissance man. He's an actor, singer and model. He's part of the band Blow and was an Executive Producer for The Pin Ups. He has a charity to help disadvantaged kids in Manila. He loves photography and probably has many other strings to his bow. Hell yeah. Fine mofo.
Oh honey, we're like a still from a movie. Glorious looking couple.
That's a very fine man right there, gorgeous girlfriend. Pucker up.
Honey you taste like chocolate, so do you baby. Yummy peeps.
Aztec and Jamaican love. Beautiful.
Aminata Niaria and her boyfriend Laurence Dennis. Sexy, stylish mofos.
Black pin up model Angelique Noire and her man Romain.
Another divine pair.
Fun and shenanigans. Cuteness.
Boo I hope that was a good shot, it's about to go viral. Adorable.
Hat tip to Love Stills.
If you haven't heard of British indie rock singer Shingai Shoniwa you've been missing out. The Zimbabwean godess is the lead vocalist and bassist of the band The Noisettes. She's also an innovative and inventive fashion icon. I love the way she incorporates afrocentric elements with her style. Sorry Beyonce lovers, for me Shingai wins hands down when it comes to looks, style and well...EVERYTHING. She has more cool dripping from her fingernail than B does in her whole body. And I hate to compare the two because there's room for both of them and of course there are many ways of being as a black woman. I 100% support that. But I'm beyond bored of the way mainstream media acts as if Beyonce is the second coming, surprise surprise. It's hilarious how terrified the mainstream media are of dark skinned black female beauty lol. Shingai kicks ass.
When people talk about alternative black female mcs in hip hop, they seem to forget Neneh Cherry. The ecclectic London chick paved the way for people like Santagold and M.I.A. Cherry was born in Sweden to a Sierria Leonean father and Swedish mother but moved to London at a young age.There, she joined punk rock band The Cherries. She is so gorgeous, particularly during the 80's when she received critical acclaim for her album Raw Like Sushi (such a fucking great album title!). Cherry experimented with different musical genres and was highly influenced by her African roots through artists like the phenomenal Fela Kuti. In the 90's she also collaborated with Senegalese French artist Youssou N'Dour on the brilliant, huge hit 7 Seconds. Neneh also financially backed the group Massive Attack. I loved Buffalo Stance and Man Child. Big lady crush, Neneh with the stunning looks and tomboy swagger, total music and style icon.
