Thongs Galore, Paparazzi Carnival Adds Its Heat to Another T&T Carnival Showcase, Come 2018.

Published

on

Paparazzi Carnival launched its 2018 carnival presentation on Saturday night in Port- of -Spain, Trinidad, to a pretty good size crowd at the Government Campus Plaza. The spanking new government facility in the heart of the city offered the ease of parking at the nearby Parkade along Edward Street however, the heat of the night, coupled with the fact that tall buildings surrounded the outdoor feting space, proved a buzz kill for some. Nonetheless, DJs for the night, DJ Niko, Artiste Team, Mixology Muzik, Jet Lee and DJ Duane, kept the energy up with the music, and as the night progressed,  and certainly after the costumes had been presented, patrons loosened up a bit for some true Trini-style fun.

This section, Negazi Rebels, which was collaboratively designed by entertainer, Bitts and local designer, Loud By Afiya, will take carnival by storm in 2018, with the band Paparazzi Carnival.

The band’s theme, Nomadik Nation, according to Paparazzi, was created to bring together the scenes and stories of our journeys, as travelers in a well connected world. The band, in 2018, will display a collection of art, culture, adventure, style, people and stories from around the world, it says. The hues of the 2018 presentation weren’t particularly different from previous carnival mas presentations, however, the band’s designers certainly did what they could to ensure ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ were heard throughout the stage show. Thongs ruled the runway no doubt, as sexy, skinny babes strutted their stuff in wild abandon to the sound of soca music, leaving one to wonder whether carnival truly caters to everyone or whether you’re automatically ousted from the festival if you measure upward of a size 6.

This section is called, Wahkan Warrior.

Soca artiste and actress, Shivonne Church who’s best known as Bitts on the entertainment circuit, made her debut to the mas creation business on Saturday night. Certainly a highlight of Paparazzi’s launch, the costume which was collaboratively designed by the young, ambitious culture lover and T&T designer, Loud By Afiya, got the nod of approval from many. A dark purple, black and white themed design- the costume section, Negazi Rebels was modeled by Athaliah Samuel. Other sections that seemed to be loved by the ladies in the audience in particular were, Mystic Romani, Wahkhan Warrior, Akibahara and Tacana Tribe. The band will deliver ten sections for revelers to choose from ahead of C2K18.

Barbados’ Rihanna Does 30 Right! Makes Huge Business Move Like Only She Would!

Published

Rihanna’s 30th birthday celebration included a big business move that could see the Barbados born Beaty rack up that dough, even while partying like the rockstar she is. Yesterday, even while celebrating the commencement of her “dirty thirties”, the Fenty brand creator released a new limited edition Fenty Beauty product- the Trophy Wife Highlighter. The super pigmented, metallic gold cream-to-powder was an instant hit when the brand debuted back in September 2017, according to Elle.com.

Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Trophy Wife highlighter is available in a limited edition online.

The “Work” singer was certainly celebrated yesterday. A number of top tier celebs offered birthday shouts to Rih, among them ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown and DJ Khaled. Rihanna was pretty modest in her approach to the big 30th celebration however, posting via Instagram, an incredible “thank you” to her mother for her role in her life.

“10958 days ago @monica_fenty became a mother for the first time to her only daughter!” the singer wrote. “Today is just as much your birthday as it is mine! I love you mom!”

She also made sure to show her appreciation for the hard work and sacrifices that go into being a mom, writing, “Thank you for carrying me, birthing me, raising me, supporting me, teaching me, and loving me unconditionally! The woman I am today is because of everything that you are!”

“I thank God for perfectly hand picking you to be my mother when He sent my spirit to you! You are the greatest! Thank you!” 

RIHANNA

The Fenty Beauty Killawatt: Dirty Thirty highlighter ($34) now comes in a gold box that reads “Dirty Thirty” and the product pan is engraved with “XXX.” Currently, it’s only available on Fenty Beauty’s website.
