Islandistas on red carpets across the globe

Islandistas (and an islandisto) hit red carpets from London to Los Angeles last week. Fashion, film and music all collided as island folk graced red carpets for the Elle Style Awards in London, the NAACP Image Awards in Los Angeles and further down the fame totem pole, BET’s Rip the Runway fashion show in New York City.

The Elle Style awards kicked things off with Naomi Campbell, Corinne Bailey Rae and Leona Lewis all attending. Check these and other pics.

Fellow Haitian (and part Puerto Rican) Maxwell kept it fly and debonair.
Part-Trini Tatyana Ali looked fab from every direction.

Meanwhile, island chicks Estelle and Nicki Minaj turned up for BET’s Rip the Runway at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC. Estelle’s look… eh!

Nicki Minaj hosted with The Game's Pooch Hall.
I'm sure some 60s girl group wants this wig back. tsk... Great dress though.

By Me

island ~ ista
From Latin -ista via Portuguese -ista
one who follows a principle; an adept.

As an islandista I live, embody, exude the spirit of the Caribbean islands.
