Don’t Get Spooked: Fashion Tips from Goastt.
Hipster Band Goastt has loads of style.
Few bands have fabulous stakes as high as The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger’s aka Goastt. The lead singer is John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s son, Sean, and his band-mate is his gorgeous girlfriend, the supermodel face for Maybelline, Charlotte Kemp Muhl. They have a devoted cult following among the hippest Brooklyn music sect, and their songs can be described as progressive rock, with an alternative edge that is in a style all their own—achingly fashionable songs that would make Sean’s famous parents proud.

Yes, their music is original, but their fashion is drawing notice too! Charlotte Kemp Muhl is turning heads around the world with her off-beat look, making her almost as famous as her famous paramour. Charlotte is known by one name in fashion circles: Kemp. The stylish one name model, who won the Elite look contest in Atlanta, has been modeling since she was 12.

Kemp has a distinct bohemian-style that draws from its inspiration from Victorian-era costume. This theatrical look is difficult to pull off, but when you are as breath-taking as this tall, willowy brunette, the effect is quite striking. She often haunts thrift shops and Village vintage stores in NYC for granny dresses and lace up boots. Her frequent style is pigtails and short sailor dresses.

For night, Kemp often favors no makeup, but a dash of bright red lipstick to accent her bee-stung lips, which are her supermodel trademark.
Sean Lennon is a connoisseur of beautiful, famous models: he has dated Bijou Phillips, Milla Jovovich, Mick Jagger’s daughter: Lizzy Jagger, and Irina Lazareanu. Yet his girlfriend, Kemp, seems to be his true love. They have a special bond and are united by their unique music. Their trend setting style imspires all of their fans.

International fashion weeks

Jamaica’s biggest exports may be rum, coffee, sugar and Usain Bolt but as the country celebrates its 50th anniversary of independence this summer, it’s beginning to make a name for its fashion industry too, thanks in no little part to Jamaica Style Week (JSW). The annual four-day event bills itself as “the iriest fashion week in the Caribbean” and hosts a series of outdoor shows and parties at heritage sites around Kingston.

This year’s JSW began on Thursday 21 May, with High Tea ‘N Style, a charity fashion show hosted by the First Lady Patricia Allen on the lawns of King’s House. This was followed by the men’s collections at Devon House and the women’s shows (dubbed the International Mecca of Style) in Port Royal, where the catwalk navigated cannons and battlements. And taking us out with a bang on Sunday was Fashion Block, a free street level show that attracted thousands of exuberant onlookers.

Far from the hallowed atmosphere of the international fashion weeks, here it’s all about flavour. Catwalk theatrics included a brief appearance by guest of honour Tyson Beckford; a show where male models handed out red roses to front row fillies; a dance troupe who did a routine to Beenie Man’s Rum & Redbull and a model competition that invited female volunteers from the audience to take part in a pose-off. A four-year-old girl won.

The fashions were just as spirited. Over 30 designers showed collections aimed firmly at island life. Revealing swimwear, tropical sun dresses and gala gowns dominated for women while menswear veered from showy dancehall styles to more sedate suiting, casual denim and sportswear. Jamaican flag-hued Golden Jubilee collections also proliferated. “JSW has energy, it’s crazy – I just love it,” says Courtney Washington, an established designer who specialises in loosely tailored linens. “I give it my full support because it’s a unique event with genuine feeling.”
