Greetings from Punta Cana Dominican Republic

It’s been an exuberant week and of course I’m taking advantage of the gorgeous resort location to relax and unwind. Yesterday I hosted the Jody Watley Ocean Spa Excursion which was enjoyed by all. Arrival

Grammy Nominated Vikter Duplaix Set to Join Jody Watley and Shalamar Reloaded at The Roxy

ShalamarReloadedRoxyFlyer

In line with always wanting to create the right atmosphere and vibe I’m so proud to announce the addition of my friend and colleague Vikter Duplaix to join Shalamar Reloaded and I live on the Sunset Strip at The Roxy.

Vikter is an accomplished songwriter / producer not to mention a Grammy nominated Urban Alternative artist for his divine “Make a Baby” from his  critically heralded ‘The Bold & The Beautiful’ release in 2008. Beyond that he’s also a renowned DJ and lifestyle event producer – a tastemaker of all groovy and good. His Kiss n Grind Events in Los Angeles are legendary in the underground scene always packed with a beautiful music loving crowd – fashionable as well I might add.

Jody Watley with Shalamar Reloaded and Vikter Duplaix promises to be a great night of an eclectic mix of sounds from soul, electronica, dance, hip hop, a splash of classic disco and hip-hop.

Vikter Duplaix. Urban Alternative Classic.

Jody Watley. Reconnections.

It’s been a while since I had a girl’s night out with my longtime friend Jeannine Braden. Jeannine is a stylist, designer and entrepreneur (she once owned one two of the hottest boutiques in Los Angeles, Flair in Fred Segal) as well as other businesses and ventures. Her recent venture is called ‘Say The Sun’ going to her Venice Beach, California roots with a line of  chic and whimsical flipflops.

She invited me to attend Cindy Crawfords ‘Becoming’ book celebration party. The book is full of classic and never seen images and insightful  anecdotes. It was a gorgeous setting and event. Hosted by Eric Buterbaugh Florals and Guthy Renker’s Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford.

Cindy was so kind and approachable; engaging with all of the guests along with her two children and husband, businessman Randy Gerber. It was a family affair. I might add her daughter Kaia is truly uncannily a twin of her legendary model Mom.

While there, it was nice to reconnect with Peter Savic, one of fashion’s most brilliant and respected hair guru’s. Peter and I collaborated on several notable style moments along my journey a while ago including the iconic image from GAP; a trendsetting celebrity ad campaign in 89. It was actually Peter’s idea to go short for this campaign..I wanted a change and didn’t want to be trapped by long hair. “Darling, we must go short, very short..” in his distinct accent and tone..I loved it. I was so happy to see him after so many years.

The journey is never long in the company of good friends and colleagues. It’s nice when you’re happy to see people!

Jody Watley Talks Music and Business on New Venture Who’s That Lady

I appreciate the fact that this new website is focused on positivity and interviews; not gossip on women in music, television and film. They’ve been incredibly supportive of “PARADISE” on Twitter and other social media; I wanted to show my support to Belinda James and the Who’s That Lady Entertainment team.  If you’re tired of gossip based media and trust me, I understand the commerce and need for a bit of entertainment and gossip here and there; however there should also be room for other mediums such as this – support these alternatives.
