From an awe-inspiring exhibition to the latest teenage singing sensation and an ex-model about to hit the big screen, we give you the skinny on the gotta-knows for 2014:


Deemed ‘the next Naomi Campbell,’ by the style set, 19-year-old Malaika Firth is everyone’s new girl crush. The Kenyan-born, UK-raised talent signed to Premier a couple of years back, but hit the headlines recently when she became the first black model to front a Prada campaign since the ‘90s! Get ready to count her many appearances on the AW14 catwalks.


This April an exhibition dedicated to French couture guru Jean Paul Gaultier will be coming to London’s Barbican. Fresh from its Brooklyn outpost, the show features 140 of Gaultier’s intricate designs, including the iconic corsets worn by Madonna and Kylie Minogue, alongside footage from catwalk shows, concerts and music videos.


You may recognise Ella Eyre as the feisty vocalist on Rudimental’s number one hit ‘Waiting All Night’. Now ready to make a mark with her own material, the 19-year-old is already topping all the critics’ ones-to-watch lists. Inspired by Motown and the likes of Gnarls Barkley, we reckon she’ll be the soulful sound of 2014.


After the stratospheric success of the raunchy book trilogy, there’ll be no escaping the February film release. And even if you weren’t a fan of the fiction, it’s worth going along to see Irish actor (and more importantly, Calvin Klein underwear model) Jamie Dornan play the part of Christian Grey. Total. Hottie.


If you haven’t heard already (perhaps you’ve been living under a rock in 2013?) the fashion icon is returning to Topshop with a new collection that’s due to launch in April 2014! If you fell in love with the floral tea dresses or denim cut-offs from Kate Moss’s seasons past, we have no doubt you’ll fall for what’s coming next.

Happy New Year everyone! x

If she is Kenyan-born and UK raised, how can she be African American? Just say black. That’s what you mean, right? Black woman, black model. The first black model to front a Prada campaign since the ‘90s! Shame on Prada.

After I and my lover spent about 4 years together, my boyfriend told me that we can not be together. and already We were making ready ourselves to get married this year and I was very happy and absolutely ready to marry him. this breakup started when he went a little far from the city where I live, a year before. He found a good job out there. And he promised me to come back in one or two years. In the mean time, I found a job around his place (we take it as a good opportunity for us to start living together) but the company I worked for resist to leave me since I am a responsible person in the company. They offered me a very nice salary increment with huge responsibility of work. Then I told to my boyfriend I preferred to stay where I live and work, since, he has not a plan to live there forever. He was very upset at the moment… and ignored me totally. I tried to contact him but I can’t. Following so much effort he sends me a message saying “our relationship is over”. I never expected such a thing to happen, so I got sick. Even after so much begging he allow me to see him, but told me the same thing that it is over. I asked him the real reason. He said, you never listened to me, you never gave me credit, and you disrespected me…..and so on. I never noticed such a thing in our relationship before, so I got shocked and couldn’t say a word in front of him. For me our relationship was perfect. And I really love him. I want to be with him. I send so many letters saying I’m sorry, I tried to contact him but there is no reply. I did everything to attract him and live with him forever but nothing was going through. so I needed a help on how to get my lover back. I had the feelling that he still loves me, though he did not say a word. I needed help seriously. I thought it will never possible to get him back and be the happy couple again? so when I read testimonies about DR.UNOKOSPELLTEMPLE30@GMAIL.COM I contacted him and he told me that my case is a simple one to solve, so after his consultation and casting of his spell my boyfriend emailed me telling me he was sorry for all that he did to me, that he is ready to marry me now, I was shocked, I never believed that GREAT Dr.UNOKO could make such thing to happen with his spell, today I am getting married to my boyfriend, and I will never forget this spell caster I will always talk about him anywhere I go angelina hocombe.
