Unfortunately James who is pictured in the flyer, the son of Betty Choi and Craig Leonard; proprietor of the NYC, Miami and Chicago G-STAR stores, has Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects over 30,000 people who suffer with this illness in the US and over 10 million people who carry one of the known defective genes whether they know it or not. It effects the lungs and the digestive system which of course are two of the most important parts of our lives; breathing and eating.
25 years ago people with CF rarely made it into their 20’s, but today with new therapies and drugs life expectancy averages closer to 40 yrs and is improving every year. This amazing statistic has been made possible by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s relentless efforts. Over 90% of all money collected goes directly to this funding. By donating you will be directly responsible for helping improve the lives and the futures of children such as James.
The fundraiser will be a fun night with DJs Kay Mel & Seth Dynomite. For a minimum of $10, a donation ticket is purchasable at: G-STAR Stores in NYC, Miami, & Chicago or Bowery Electric Thursday May 19 7:30-11:30 or by direct donation at: http://www.cff.org/great_strides/bettychoi

Kanye West hit the stage with best friend Jay-Z at the Museum of Modern Art’s annual 2011 Party in the Garden once again in his favorite pair of Balmain Homme jeans in New York. I never would have thought I would ever be a fan of Kanye in any aspect whatsoever, let alone in his style. But his style has become a lot less extravagant and more relaxed. It sort of reminds me of my own actually, just sticking to the basics and adding other things to make them different.
Though Kanye might have gained a fan through me, he may have lost one through ex-girlfriend Amber Rose. She recently replied to the comments that many are saying she has downgraded from Kanye to her current boyfriend Wiz Kalifa in the issue of King Magazine that she graces. She says, “There’s no comparison in personalities. You know when people say how do you go from Kanye to Wiz Khalifa, that’s a downgrade. But the only question I can ask them is: have you ever dated Kanye? Because I have, and believe me, I did not downgrade at all. Not in any aspect, at all.” What are your thoughts on Ms. Rose’s statement?
I can’t believe how old Nahla is already! Halle Berry was seen taking her daughter to pre-school in Beverly Hills. Although Halle took some time off from her career, it seems like she’s back in the full swing of things. She recently filmed New Year’s Eve, in New York and has recently signed on to the movie adaptation of Cloud Atlas.
Halle seems to have been mixing up her denim choices recently but broke out her Black Orchid skinny jeans. She’s been mixing up her denim selections after being seen in Black Orchid quite often. But this pair looks like a great, comfortable pair to throw on, I can see why she wears them so much! You can buy Black Orchid jeans online at Singer22.com.
