Erykah Badu Window Seat

Erykah Badu's new video Window Seat

They play it safe..

Are quick to assassinate what they do not understand.

They move in packs ingesting more and more fear with every act of hate on one another.

They feel most comfortable in groups, less guilt to swallow.

They are US!

This is what we have become, afraid to respect the individual.

A single person within a circumstance can move one to change, to love ourself, to EVOLVE.

I was able to ask Rachel a quick question in regards to working with Chanel Iman over the weekend at the L.E.I Model Citizen Search and she said " Chanel Iman is a model who's a very determined young female, and has a great work ethic for someone her age and will go very far in the fashion industry"

Tenika Davis was one of the models at the event.  Tenika was on the 1st cycle of Canada's Next Top Model, she is currently doing modeling and acting gigs and is signed with Ford Modeling agency and hopes to make a name for herself in the industry.  Tenika is from North of Toronto and is of Trinidad descent, her favorite models are Liya Kebede and Chanel Iman.  Her advice to females wanting to become a model is stay strong and have lots of confidence in yourself.

"Rachel Roy has come to the Bay! Rachel Rachel Roy is a new addition to her great portfolio of brands, Rachel Roy New York and Rachel Roy Signature. The Rachel Rachel Roy collection captures a fresh and youthful look by mixing elements of downtown cool with uptown chic – all at affordable price points.
