TELL US ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE WEARING TODAY:
Leslie: Zara jeans, H&M shoes, can’t remember who my shirt is by and sweater is also from the Zara in Soho.
Paris: I’m wearing some vintage Chanel sneakers (okay, they’re eight years old)…some fitted Squared jeans, Lucky Brand jacket, Skateboard RAW hoodie, hat by Carpe Noche and shades by Jimmy Choo.
HOW HAS HIP HOP CULTURE INFLUENCED YOUR STYLE:
Leslie: It’s everything. I mean that’s what I breathe and sleep on so it’s just naturally the styles I want to wake up and put on. It’s just what I think of…it’s just embedded in me.
Paris: Whew…I think everything comes with intention…and since we are surrounded by Hip Hop, we ARE Hip Hop Culture. I think naturally it’s just what flows with all of us because it is way of life and subsequently, it sculpts our intentions. Scopes the way we represent ourselves to the rest of the community.
NAME YOUR TOP 3 FAVORITE HIP HOP ARTISTS:
Leslie: JayZ, Drake…and I’m gonna say Nicki Minaj even though I sound ratchet.
Paris: Beyonce, Pharrell Williams and Janet Jackson. That’s my Hip Hop baby…
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WOULD NEVER BE CAUGHT WEARING:
Leslie: Ooohhh..that’s hard.
Paris: I know.
Paris: JNCO Jeans.
(We all burst out laughing because we all know we rocked that shit back in the day)
TELL US SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE DESIGNERS:
Paris: Chanel, Ungaro, and…Foot Locker.
Leslie: Oh I’d have to say Ungaro definitely and would have to add Versace to that list.
WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF FASHION ADVICE YOU WANT TO GIVE OUR READERS?
Leslie: Don’t go by no rules. Be you. Dress how you feel comfortable and feel beautiful in it. Embrace it.
