GAL APPROVED Malan Breton, Red Band Ride, Dex Styling & Idris Elba!By The DivaGals | September 26, 2014 | Gal Approved
STRUT. Malan Breton has a tasteful flare for the theatrical, and it’s always entertaining to view the opening of his runway shows. At his NY Fashion Week Spring 2015 show, this theme came from Malan’s promotional partnership with his homeland Taiwan. The collection also provided a homage to Asian silks and old world charm. The gowns and were feminine and fitted and in rich colors. The men’s collection was a masculine take on silk suiting. And everything was impeccably tailored.
SAVE. FOX’s new hit series Red Band Society came off the screen last week as the series sponsored a charity ride with SoulCycle in New York, and TV DivaGal was there. For one hour, I huffed, puffed and pedaled with RBS stars Rebecca Rittenhouse and Charlie Rowe to raise money for cancer research. Shout out to Camren Bicondova, Gotham’s Catwoman, who was on the bike next to me and kept me motivated throughout the whole experience. Catch Gotham and Red Band Society Mondays and Wednesdays respectively on FOX.
STYLE. Looking for some great trendy pieces for fall and upcoming spring ’15 that won’t break your piggy bank? We were so glad to discover DEX, a clothing brand born and bred in Canada. The 25-year-old company prides itself on offering stylish of-the-moment separates that price in for $100 or less. Damsel Seeking Denim? DEX is offering jeans that have washes and detailing that rivals the luxury brands at a fraction of the cost. We loved DEX so much, we rocked a lilac crop sweater for our Gossip Table cover shoot (returning to VH1 this Monday at 10 a.m.!) for RESIDENT magazine.
CELEBRATE. We attended “Meet The Africa Center” Day in East Harlem and had a blast, from watching libations poured from the elders of Ghana to African-infused ballet demo from the professional troupe of Dance Theater of Harlem; we even made our own rainstick. At the opening preview party our Mama DivaGal spied her own celebrity spotting and did what any self-respecting DivaGal would do — got┬á a pic with Idris Elba! The center officially opens in 2016.
