by George Njiiri

The mercurial and effervescent Glynn Jackson, was hosting his annual Golden scissors event in the Nation’s capital.  There were thousands of participants and patron’s of the 19th version of this annual extravaganza.  Current Mayor elect of D.C., Vincent Gray made a guest appearance in honor of Glynn Jackson.  Other notable celebrities were actor Darrin Hanson, WPGC’s Anji Corley and WKYS’ Jeanie Jones. DC diva Lola Monroe also performed her new single, “overtime.”  This year’s theme was “Hair Gaga, fashion to the extreme”.  Costumes were unabashed, hair designs woven like a basket, shoes riddled with bullet shells and glass!  The foremost Costume was a wedding cake outfit, with a couple on the top, to boot.  There were spectacular outfits reminiscent of something from a sci-fi movie, that would make Lady Gaga proud.  The overall winner of the stylist of the year  and accompanying $1000 prize, was Christopher D. Fountain aka the Pastor, from Connecticut. Next years’ event will be bigger and better and Washington holds its’ collective breath, for what’s in store.
