Interview with The Herald Greenacres Miss PE 2009 Di-Anne Qoto

I asked her if she's seeing someone, we laughed and she straight-up told me that "Di-Anne doesn't involve the media in her private life, because people always want to know things but they don't always know how to handle the information they get. And you find that you focus on one aspect and then you find 'five' things that you haven't opened up yourself up to that are not true. So in order for me not to defend myself in future, I will not answer that." And there I was thinking 'Dang! This is exactly how a young, confident woman, who's got everything going on for her, should reply.' After all, her name sounds like royalty and her surname means 'assured and strong.'

She loves laughing; she's outgoing and also very serious; she sees herself as growing continuously throughout her life. She's an Anglican. She's a giver and a taker.

My first interview with Di-Anne was for BayFM 107.9 just after she was crowned Miss PE 2009, and now we're on our second interview just a few weeks before she hands over the crown at the coveted event.

What would the fashion industry be without a little controversy now and then? The latest storm surrounds the Mikael Jansson-shot May 2010 Interview Magazine editorial featuring Daria Werbowy. Titled "Let's Get Lost", the editorial has been dubbed racist and highly sexualised by some, and artistically beautiful by others - either way, the editorial is provocative.

Ready To Wear: LWD

The new "Joule of South Africa" :  we might be talking about alternatives, but this has nothing to do with cars...

South Africa is blessed to be a season behind the rest of the northern hemisphere's fashion world. Blessed? How do I dare utter such? Well because we "cheeky chicks" are then able to mix and match FW things with SS things, and get wholly unique look (add to the fact that, even our winters are like European summers), and can have as much fun as we like.  All tones and shades, all washes and stains... The world is our...Pilchard?

Case in point: The Little White Dress, or LWD for short has been making a super splash (for lack of a better terminology) on the runways, (thanks mostly to Chanel, Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Narciso Rodriquez, Celine etc) in the 2010 RTW shows. My brain was so white washed that when I "composed" myself, all around me, ALL that I could see were white dresses. Je dice: "Why do I have to waite for Spring to wear a white dress? I wear my booties in summer time.." So I took the plunge. Why do we allow an unfeeling season to dictate what should and shouldn't do? If it was clear and blue outside, would you still wear wellingtons and a rain-coat? (rhetorical) I say... As Lexus did on our roads a million years ago, it is time that we Hybridized our closets and start marching to the beat of our own drum (this funny enough had nothing to do with being afro-centric when I first thought of it)...
