Last night, Judy and Michael Mauldin of R&B Hip Hop 4 Humanity along with Bentley Atlanta and The Atlantan hosted the star-studded “A Night to Remember” fundraiser and tribute to fashion pioneer Bethann Hardison and the late designer Willi Smith at Atlanta’s  Atlantic Station. “A Night to Remember” starts off Atlanta’s celebration of Fashion’s Night Out on September 8th. All proceeds from “A Night to Remember” will benefit the Mauldin Scholarship Fund at Savannah College of Art & Design, as well as Invisible Beauty, a documentary by Bethann Hardison.

Model Tyson Beckford and WSB TV’s Jovita Moore were the MCs of the fundraiser, which included a performance by singer Kenny Lattimore, a presentation to Hardison and Smith, and a runway show featuring model and tv personality Cynthia Bailey.

Interior designer Michael Habachy of HGTV’s “Design Wars” turned the loft space above Z Gallerie into a white wonderland with multi-colored lighting.

The fashion show was real nice and a ton of celebs came out including: Actress Jasmine Guy, former model Gail O’Neill, Anna Maria Horsford, Toya & Memphitz Wright, Trina & Towanda Braxton, Tameka Raymond (one of the show’s stylists), attorney/Real Housewives’ Phaedra Parks, singer/songwriter Crystal Nicole, choreographer Andrea Kelly, singer Dondria, entrepreneur Peter Thomas, Derek Blanks, Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall, Roger Bobb, Kenny Burns (V103) all came out to support “A Night to Remember.”

I had the chance to talk to Toya & Memphitz and they were telling me how they were in LA and be on the watch for big things from them!

Brandy Does Derek Blanks Photo Shoot

Singer Brandy is the latest celeb to do a Derek Blanks photo shoot. This shoot conveys Brandy good and bad side. This shoot is the first of Derek Blanks that shows a story through a series of pictures. He had this to say about the photo shoot:

The struggle between good and bad. WHEN GOOD GOES BAD. This is a HIGH FASHION STORY that takes you into the dark side of Brandy. The good Brandy is kidnapped and ends up struggling with herself to finally kill the dark demons with in.”

Sounds interesting to say the least. The story that Derek is trying to get across is easy for readers to pick up with his creative work.
