A client found us with some raggedy gossipScoop. “Psst…I bet you can’t guess why Erykah Badu gave me a tip for a “Job well Done…” or “What HALLE BERRY said when she found that I had a wife and child…” I pondered, who is this? Intrigued, I prodded who IS T.H.I.S., really? The more he talked, the more I listened. Oh d*mn it’s PIERRE turned SNITCH Author. If anyone would know what happens behind Hollywood’s closed doors it’s PIERRE. He introduced me to “My 100 Homies & Phonies of Hollywood,” a hilarious and sometimes serious book of recant of tabloid targets, Hollywood tastemakers and paparazzi favorites. From Hollywood heavyweights Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, comedy legends RICHARD PRYOR and BERNIE MAC to the queen of Messy herself, Talk Show host Wendy Williams – how bold, how spicy.
After nearly a ten year hiatus from the Hollywood scene PIERRE has hit the syndicated radio circuit running. From the Monique Show to the Rickey Smiley Radio Show to the ever funny Steve Harvey Morning Show where he was asked to play co-host in Steve Harvey’s absence to nearly 7 million morning listeners nationwide, we can safely say HE IS BAACCK. ! As our newest talent on the Couture Agency roster, I will serve as his personal publicist (Puhlease wish me L.U.C.K. ~ he’s a hand / mouth full.)

We were deeply saddened by the passing of Michael Jackson. I was a dedicated and loyal fan of his music and philanthropy. Everyone has a memory of Michael Jackson. If I said I had one favorite Michael Jackson memory I would not be telling the truth as I had many. As a young child Michael Jackson was an icon in our family. His energy, charisma, talent and flair were surreal. I remember when my mother bought me the glove and the black pleather jacket. I wanted to wear them everywhere. Until this very day, I have every bit of Michael Jackson. I feel grateful and honored to have grown up on his music. Despite the tabloid rumors and accusations, I have always loved Michael. May he rest in Peace.
Our consultants recently performed the PR for the Sojourner Truth Memorial BustUnveiling in Washington DC. We sent out our e-newsletter but also wanted to include some of the great coverage in this Blog for the entire world to see. We only placed some but if you would like to all of the media and press coveragesimply click here:
The Couture Agency recently brokered an event at the Embassy of Sweden in Washington, DC. The theme, “Living Green Masquerade” was a great success. More than 600 patrons came and dressed the part with Green costumes and masks, including our Vice President Ivy K. Pendleton.
Other patrons included diplomats and staff from the House of Sweden. As part of the Embassy program [Living Green] focused on climate, the environment and sustainable living. Original artwork adorned the venue as well as decor from Couture By Design™, our Special Events and Meetings Division. We added a foresty flair with life-sized images of forests and ferns in natural colors. The rest of the decor consisted of Bamboo, Large Hisbiscus trees, Natural burlap and linen fabric in shades of cream and green and stones.
Music was provided by DJ Gavin Holland (Nouveau Riche), and DJs Rehee and Shred. Other elements included artist exhibitions, a rooftop lounge, Design and other artistic expressions.
