  1. 16 Stone Vintage: 1975 PROM

    March 20, 2014 by 16stone

    Hello everyone, I am sorry to leave you for more than a month without a post. I was busy putting together the most fun party I’ve ever had in my life! My birthday celebration this year had a vintage theme of the 1975 prom. I had so much fun dressing friends and family for this party. I was running out to stores right down to the last hour before the party. Below is footage from this very special night that took place at Tip Top Bar and Grill on March 8th. A very special thank you to Tip Top, DJ Tara, Richard LouissaintJason Minnis, and everyone who attended. Enjoy!

  9. Miss Cannes Festival 1959

    November 10, 2013 by 16stone

    Cecelia Cooper went to France in 1959 and won the title of Miss Cannes Festival with the help of Grace Del Marco agency founder Ophelia DeVore. Cecelia beat out 14 other models of European decent. Ophelia DeVore set out to show the world that Black models had a place in the beauty world. She did just that with this stunning prodigy. The Grace Del Marco agency represented some of my other favorite vintage beauties like Dolores DeVega and Diahann Carroll.

  10. Serving you 1990′s Realness…

    November 7, 2013 by 16stone

    Loving my fresh Havana Twists from Luvly Brown. I feel like it’s 1993 again. Somebody cue Jade “Don’t Walk Away.” All I need is some combat boots and baggy jeans. Got the old school lip color too. I feel like I got a second chance to finally be part of this look. When it was popular in 1993 I was only 10 years old. So as a kid, all I could do was admire and play dress up. Cheers for vintage coming back around.
