Fashion Stylist Jennie Lyle/ R-Clash Talent Awards

First things first, THE YEAR OF THE DRAGON has begun. Binzento Vincente wishes everyone a HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!

Next my fashion stylist friend Jennie Lyle recently participated a local shopping centre fashion styling competition. The theme of the style is called "The Death of Winter". To make this competition more challenging for our stylists, the fashion outlook MUST incorporate a garden hose into the style. Here is what Jennie Lyle came out with:

I REALLY love this look (honest opinion), and think she deserves to win. Jennie was sharp with her choice of colour combination, style, and the use of the green garden hose. It looked fun, fresh and totally in tune with the latest vibrant colour trend this season. The model magically worked well with this style. The hair and make-up was also beautifully done. Therefore, I decided to ask my readers here to vote for Jennie Lyle for styling the Best LOOK before January 25th. 

Binzento Vincente attended one of the most dynamic and multi-cultural music events this weekend called R-Clash Talent Awards. Created by YYC music production company: CZ Entertainment and partnered with Hong Kong Student Association (HKSA), R-Clash (also known as Rhythmic Clash) Awards is a platform for local musicians to present their passion for music and talent to their fans and audience. 
A total of 15 music "units" were selected in the final round, which consisted both solo artists and music bands. The MCs of the night were OMNI TV's Brian Wong and Jenny Yu. There was a panel of four music professionals as judges to give each finalist music advice. The judges were: former Canadian Idol and rocker Billy Klippert, Asia's record producer Max Chou who produced records for top Asian artists such as Jay Chou, Canadian hip hop artist MC J-Ross and vocal coach Deanna Dubbin who was known for her cover of the 1988 Winter Olympic theme song. The winner of the awards were seleccted via live audience votes. Four awards were given based on Techniques, Performance, Creativity and Fans' favourite.

My personal picked of the night was Pearl Reckless, a punk/rock band that had a great energy. Despite a technique difficulty with the microphone early on in their performance, they recovered it professionally and won the crowds' hearts. 
My most favourite performance of the night was song writer/singer Annika Odegard, who sang her original piece "Nothing But the Blues". I love jazz/souls, she won my vote not only because of her stunning vocal and song writing ability. She was able to execute an unique personal style that will be remembered by many.

What intrigued me about R-Clash Talent Awards was the humble welcome of musicians from various backgrounds, music genre and languages. It truly represents the multi-culturalism of our Canadian culture and showed what it means when "music is the universal communication that breaks the language barrier".
