Actress and Plus-Size SuperModel Mia Amber Davis sadly departed from the Fashion World May 11, 2011. I remember seeing her for the first time on the reality show Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency and in person at NJ designer Douglas Says fashion show in 2008. I dubbed Mia Amber “The Naomi Campbell of Plus Size Modeling”. She was a force to be reckoned with upon the runway and her photos rock the bells in editorials and advertisement campaigns. Mia Amber was the voice for all plus-size women and encouraged them to be happy with the beauty the creator has given them and hold their confidence to a higher degree.
Our hearts and condolences goes out to the family of Mia Amber Davis.
A Lyric For Mia
The angelic face needs no make-up
The presence of a smile brings warmth
The body fills the room with light
Curves turn heads from left to right
Bringing a shock treatment to the one’s hearts
Fashion opens eyes
Style brings memories
Personality makes no one forget
The concret is the runway
Being stepped upon with a heel of beauty
Scents leaving a trail of trance
Leading the followers into sensuality
Now as it time to go home
We will ever get the same presence again
But what we do appreciate…is the one we did have

Through his falsetto and scatting, you can sense that he eats, sleeps, and breathes jazz, hip-hop, funk, and soul. Hailing from Oakland, CA, Turner was a classically trained since childhood. He fine tuned his craft at School of the Arts High School in San Francisco, CA and New School University for Jazz and Contemporary Music. This past February, he was selected to perform as an “Artist to Watch” by BET Music Matters and shared his talent on the hit show 106&Park. Turner took the time to answer some questions with The B&G Society to talk about his music training, inspiration, and upcoming album. Continue reading
Taken after reviewing The Fabric Twinz, I spotted Shaunie O’neal wearing the beautiful and glamrous all white gown while Jennifer wore a pretty short gold cocktail dress with mesh arms and sides.
