I promised our male readers that every week I would post on a different website that caters to them & their needs. Well here it goes. . . Top 3 Reasons why you should shop  

  1. Membership Required Website. Essentially, this means you get exclusive access to sample sales and email updates from your favorite designers & brands. THE BREAKDOWN- first dibs on pieces you want at cheaper prices.
  2. PLNDR Offers Variety. Shop brands such as Acropolis, DOPE COUTURE, & BLVCK SCVLE, and many others. You wont be limited to just one brand or type of look. 
  3. Pick Up Something For Your Gal. Yes, this website caters to men but how convenient is it that there is a female section as well? A few pieces for you, a few pieces for your girlfriend as well ;]
Check out it out, & tell me what you think. 

**Jocoby Joyy- A real man of style and distinction is going to be well put together. && that's that.

&& Just When You Thought King Bey Would Stop . . .

&& sit her pregnant self down somewhere, she releases yet another video, Party, from her latest album 4. The remix which appeared on the web a few days ago, features J. Cole, instead of Andre 3000. For anybody who loves, Party, I'm sure they weren't thrilled to hear of the change in feature [even though we <3 Mr. Cole]. I mean who can beat 3 Stackss? But after a second listen, I think its safe to say that J. Cole delivered. 

New Premiere: Lost Ones

Yesterday, J. Cole released his video to "Lost Ones" on his official website and tweeted it to over a million of his fans and after I got passed my anger with J. Cole for not casting me for this music video since I had been rehearsing the second verse of the song for months... (tear, tear)... I actually enjoyed the video a lot.  Well Voguers... what do you think?

New Music Mondays

It's Monday so you know what that means... NEW MUSIC MONDAYS!!!! I don't know what it is about Vogue | Diaspora but we seem to get all the good looking fellas sending in their music, this proves that this is NOT just a page for the ladies. This Monday we're taking it to Brooklyn, New York with rapper Frank Mcfly. What I liked most about this particular song is that the rapper shows a bit of a sentimental side as he raps about a breakup with his girlfriend. The song, entitled "Take Off" (features Paul G.) gives its listeners a feel for breakup through a man's perspective. So Voguers, it's your job to give this song a listen, is this 18 year old rapper VOGUE or HELL NO?!

You should all know the deal by now, but for our new-found Voguers if you're liking what you hear then comment on the post and state your approval. Now, on the other hand if what you're hearing is just not okay then feel free to say HELL NO YOU GOTTA GO! We're all grown ups here! The artist who receives ten votes of yes (or as we call them: Vogue Votes) will then earn their chance to weekly updates on Vogue | Diaspora! Now let the music play...

Rihanna Navy!

We Found Love

Is it sad that this video almost made me cry? I think #rihannanavy screamed a little bit louder when Rihanna released the "We Found Love" video. About three weeks ago Vogue | Diaspora showed our Voguers stills from the video shoot and now we give you the video via Rihanna Official Website . What I loved most about this video is that it actually had a concept. The raw, uncut, realness of this video is so breathtaking and I'm sure that almost everyone felt something after watching this video. Rihanna NEVER ceases to amaze her crowd and this video surely did speak volume.

Who Is: Jhene Aiko

If you know who Cassie is then you BETTER know who Jhene Aiko is. I'm not really one to boost one artist by bringing another down but Jhene can actually SING and she is a model. Personally, I was first introduced to Jhene's music back in my B2k days when I knew every song, move and attended every concert of theirs. Jhene, who is the cousin of former B2k member Dreux Pierre Frédéric (Lil Fizz) appeared on the Scream Tour 3 as an opening act and also recorded a few tracks with B2k such as "Tease."

Despite What The Critics Say . . .

We loved Kanye's Fashion Week debut. What better way to celebrate then to feature the looks from Dw as Fresh Off The Runway. 


& yes, Dw is still being talked about heavily even days after its launch. Some people are loving it, while some, as we know, are tearing it to pieces. In my opinion, while there may be some wrong, you have to admit there was a lot of good.The staging of the show was beyond, beyond just like I predicted last week. & a lot of the looks popped. Like the first all white one. Its my fave ;] & lastly, to me you can tell that he just didn't slap his name on something he 'thought his fans would wear' like a plethora of other celebrity designers and make a killing off of it. I think Mr. West has proven to us that he has a sincere interest in fashion.

*Sidenote- People can say what they want, but obviously insiders took Mr. West seriously about his debut as some of the biggest names in fashion turned out. Anna Wintour, Jeremy Scott, Azzedine Alaïa, the Olsen twins . . . Those people just don't come to shows for nothing.

Straight outta... FRANCE!

I whip my...

Most women want long, luxurious, healthy looking hair, right? We want something for our man to be able to run his fingers through and grab onto when he expresses his affection. But... some of us let our desperation for this allow us to go to ANY measure to get this that they don't take the time out to make sure it's good quality. I'm sure we all know what I'm talking about by now.
