Islandistas at the Brit Awards

The biggest night in British music came off two nights ago and plenty islandistas were in the mix and while none of them won any awards on the night, they at least looked the part. X-Factor divas Alexandra Burke and Leona Lewis played against type in their outfits. Alexandra, who often rocks short dresses to […]

And I can’t tell you how…  how moved I am that everybody cares. It means a lot because for so long, no one cared. For so long, no one knew us. And this really means a lot. – Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon Those were the words from a tearful Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon earlier this week on Larry King […]

Islandistas at the AMAs

So the American Music Awards hit the air last night and everyone is still buzzing about it. Adam Lambert’s performance? Just… wow. But would people have been so shocked if a raunchy female performer – say a Janet or even a Rihanna, did the same thing? Food for thought, eh? Speaking of Rihanna, her performance […]

Islandistas at the BET Awards & after-parties

Sighhhh…. oh BET. BET, BET, B.E.T. What can we say about Black Entertainment (or is that Exploitation?) Television’s awards show on Sunday night?

Notes on the BET Awards 08 – Islandistas on the red carpet

 Trini-descended islandista Nia Long was absolutely working this plum-coloured dress. I loved everything about it – the rich colour, the daring back with just the two suspender-like straps down to the waist, the draped pockets at the sides, the plunging neckline – it was a winner from every direction.
