Style Story: Dawn Richard Brings Her Fashion To Vibe Vixen

R&B singer Dawn Richard, formerly of Diddy’s ‘Making The Band’ and ‘Dirty Money’ still manages to stay relevant without a major push. Dressed in designers brands such as Marc Jacob, Alexander McQueen, Forever 21, Sammy B Leggings and Bebe; Dawn did a photo shoot for Vibe Vixen. Styled by Tiffany Hasbourne and photographed by Karl Ferguson. During her brief interview; Dawn talks about fashion, being compared to Rihanna, what people can expect from her and pays homage to Brandy.

On fashion:

“Check the track record. [Danity Kane and Diddy-Dirty Money] were always ahead of fashion trends,” she says. “We were pushing the limits in everything. Danity Kane had five lead singers, which was unheard of, wearing Heatherette; we were doing 10-part harmonies. And Dirty Money had a mogul as a leader. It’s never been your typical aesthetic.”

On wanting to be reminiscent of Brandy:

I want to be reminiscent of Brandy. She will always be the vocal Bible to me; I’ll be the misfit of music, the rebel of music.”

Who influenced you to rap: Cam’ron Fabolous and Ma$e

Standout records or moments have been: My song “Get Em Off You” which was released back in 2007. It was one of the tracks that put me on because it featured another Harlem rapper, When Nicki Minaj asked to join my team and I on a song and New York’s popular DJ, DJ Funk Master Flex just dropped my artist/partner Lil SNS song on Hot 97 last night Tuesday (July 10), while we were in the studio recording some tracks. They were my standout moments.

If you can sign to any label, what label it will be and why: If I can sign with any label it would be Maybach Music because I like what they’re doing. They are one of the hottest labels out and my team fits in with the MMG movement. I would also sign with YMCMB and Bad Boy. Right now, Diddy is going hard for his artists.

What projects are you currently working on: I’m working on my upcoming mixtape, entitled Ice Mayweather, which arrives this Fall 2012.

Five years from now I will be: A music mogul, trendsetter, one of the hottest rappers out, touring around the world, signing endorsement deals and most importantly a motivation for others in Harlem that grew up the way I did or have dreams. Icy Gang will also be the faces of Harlem!

He Is Showing His Chest, Six-Pack & Abs For The Ladies: Romeo’s Shirtless Cover & Spread For Rolling Out

Is that Master P’s son? Romeo is all grown up and it looks like the older he get, the more shirtless pictures he takes. He is on his grown man and all about his business. The successful rapper, actor and ball player gets shirtless and shows his chest, six-pack and abs in the latest issue of Rolling Out. For his fashion shoot and spread, Romeo was styled by Chris Mannor. Romeo was just 12-year-old when he came into the entertainment industry. The pressure of being in this industry can be insurmountable, but somehow Romeo overcame the pressure, conquered and reached the top. He released platinum-selling albums and starred in some of the biggest movies. In the cover story, Romeo talks about coming in the industry at a young age, how he remains relevant, his acting and music career and how he makes a woman feels sexy. Below are some excerpts:

We’ve all seen how cruel the entertainment industry can be when it comes to child stars as they get older. How have you been able to remain relevant without losing focus or becoming a joke?

I think a lot of artists don’t understand the concept of change. It’s just like, life because as a kid growing up in the business, I saw my father evolve every few years. Just knowing that everything is going to change with time and nothing stays the same. I remember I used to wear baggy jeans and everybody used to have their throwback jerseys. There’s no way I would wear those kind of clothes now. But just like fashion changes, your body, mind and life change as well.

What are three things that make every woman sexy?

Education; gotta be a smart woman and independent. Good heart; everyone loves a woman who loves kids and their outlook on life is positive. You gotta know how to cook. If you don’t know how to cook then that’s a problem, especially if you’re from the South like me. And give good massages. I could keep going.

What can we expect from you as far as music is concerned?

I’m the president of the company. We’ve already sold 80 plus million records and we want to triple that. We want to make good music. When I sign somebody I look for somebody with a good heart and who wants to make a change, not necessarily perfect, but somebody like my dad, who’s not from the best neighborhood, but who wants to make a difference for their family and has that hunger. I may drop a mixtape on Twitter right before my movie opens, but y’all stay posted on that.

For his 37th birthday party, 50 Cent celebrated across the pond in Paris at Le Vendome nightclub and he sure did partied it up in style. Fif and his entourage popped bottles of champagne as the sexy ladies kept them entertained. For the occasion, 50 rocked a $573 Balmain Eagle Print Tee-Shirt, True Religion jeans and a pair of Nike sneakers. I’m not too impressed with the shirt or sneakers. The True Religion jeans are okay though. Do you have any thoughts on 50’s outfit?
