Hundreds of the Twin Cities best dressed turned out for The Dandies Project launch. The Dandies Project is a photo montage designed to highlight the positive impact that men of color have brought to their community, with a sense of purpose and style.
The Dandies Project will be a yearly coffee table book highlighting selected "Dandies" from year to year. The concept is a creation of area fashion icon, Richard Moody. Some of this year's Dandies include Nick Hooks, Will Shuford (DJ Willie Shu), Raynardo Williams, B Justin Parker, Corey Collins and Chris McDuffie.
The launch that took place at Handsome Cycle, 115 Washington Ave. N, downtown Minneapolis truly brought out some of the area's most stylish and beautiful people. Aesthetically Speaking captured a few of the beautiful faces in the crowd.
Ruben and Lalah shared the stage and took turns singing their individual hits during a three-night, six-show, engagement. With his voice, Ruben reminded everyone why he was the clear choice of America to win "Idol" and Lalah absolutely amazed the Dakota audiences with her unbelievable range and tone. Having both on stage together was truly "meant to be."
