My name is Jawanee Milan, and I am a fancy Jawa. A jawa's traditional sepia robes don't mesh with my fine taste. I opt for a more romantic color, like this tint of aubergine I am donning in my audition video above. I hope I get it! I am never without my ion blaster, nor my official CHANNEL purse (not to be confused with the bourgeois CHANEL. I like to keep it real.) In fact, I often walk into a room "Purse First" as my drag sisters like to say. It's fabulous as it both announces your presence and distinguishes where you are in the sartorial caste system. Clearly my custom made purse reveals myself to be fancy, fun, and exclusive - all true! Also, I love to dance, too, but you can see that. Never a lesson in my life. Hard to believe, I know...
Last night I had a great time at the NYC Halloween parade. Ghosts, ghouls, and several poop emojis we rampant through the streets. I even met up with one of my fellow Jawas, though he is not as fancy as myself. Truth be told, they never really are. Unfortunately, I was unable to accommodate two revelers' request of droids for sale. Traveling with my merch is never convenient. I did give them my mobile number and told them to contact me -- never know what these humans will buy!!
All-in-all a good time was had. You can see a few images from the evening below. Please peruse and enjoy!

While fashion is sometimes perceived to stand in the shadow of other design genres, not to mention the fine arts, I look to the runways season after season to feel the fantasy and dream the dream. Pattern, color, shape, the occasional bling — all are mixed together with a dose of attitude to sell garments with unabashed pomp and circumstance. With Fashion Month just behind us, I have chosen some of my favorite looks from the runways and tired them on... virtually (watch out Elle Woods!). For their artistry I would rank Hussein Chalayan, Comme des Garcons, and Thom Browne high on the list. Wearability is another issue. But why be so pedestrian? You don't ever want to wear your favorite painting, or maybe you do...
Would you be seen in any of them? All of them??
Oh, and apost about fashion week would not be complete without a view into the world of street style. Bonafide celebs and celeb wannabes alike, all are subject to the eyes of the fashion photographers' discerning eyes. Do you like me as a blonde?
