Basic Magazine held its Power Issue release party August 11 at the prestigious Beverly Hills Club on Rodeo Drive. The Gangsta Black Tie Affair featured an over-the-top, glam Fifth Element meets a mythological fashion theme with beautiful golden drip fashion collection provided by Calvin Hiep. From futuristic dancing unicorn fashion models to colorful robotic butterflies, Basic Magazine’s founder and Editor-in-Chief, Viktorija Pashuta hosted the event sporting a futuristic glamorous look of silver colored mermaid style locks by Victor Mendoza to match her silver and creme colored caped gown, styled by Oye Decova and Ama Fashion PR. The night kicked off with red carpet photo opportunities for the guests, as well as red carpet interviews by the magazine’s own beauty editor Lisa Wayne. The VIP Celebrity guest list included The Young Six, a hip hop artist from Nurnberg Germany, who has performed alongside artists such as 50 Cent, Cassidy, and Fabulous. Other celebrities among the crowd were singer/actress Ava Gold, actor Odain Watson, fashion stylist George Blodwell and Karen Bystedt (Andy Warhol photographer), just to name a few.
