Fashion Fridays: SEEN!

Words by Eddie STATS Houghton

The role of hot gal to the world that Caribbean women have been playing has gotten so out of control of lately that we can barely keep up. If we posted every time a stunner of West Indian origin covers a high fashion mag or graces a red carpet we would be a 24-hour celebrity-stalker paparazzi blog. And yet. We are oddly compelled to post every time a stunner of West Indian origin covers a high fashion mag or graces a red carpet. So to satisfy our souls and still leave room for the equally necessary Mad Cobra videos, whiskey ads and purple Clarks that make the LargeUp universe go ’round, we have consolidated the most essential Caribbean lookaz  that have been spotted recently, dispense with the long-talking and just mark them #SEEN.
