R&B singer-songwriter and actress Ashanti was recently spotted carrying two different MCM handbags from her personal collection... This is brilliant as we love Ashanti! I discovered her in 2002 when she released her duet with Fat Jo "What's Luv?" and I remember very clearly a great Summer spent with friends, carefree in Paris, dancing our hearts out to that song every time it came on. Even now, over 10 years later, whenever I think of Ashanti, this song starts playing in my mind. As I am writing this, can you guess what I am humming?
Ashanti is most famous for her eponymous debut album, which featured the hit song "Foolish", and sold over 503,000 copies in its first week of release in April 2002. In the same week, she became the first female performer to simultaneously hold the top two places on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart with "Foolish", and "What's Luv?" (with Fat Joe). In 2003, the self-titled debut album won Ashanti her first Grammy Award for Best Contemporary R&B album. As of 2008, Ashanti has sold over 12 million records worldwide. Ashanti ended the decade (2000-09) as the third top new R&B artist behind Alicia Keys and Beyonce. She also ended the decade at number 38 on the Top Artist of the Decade list. She is currently on the list of The Twenty Best Selling Music Singles Since 1990 for her single Foolish for selling 7.2 million copies to-date.
And it seems that she is a keen shopper as well as a remarkable artist... She was spotted twice carrying some of the coolest MCM bags of the season...
Lucky Ashanti managed to get her hands on one of the most coveted bags of the season the Eyes on the Horizon document holder, in bright green. There were only a handful of those bags available around the world and I can only imagine the efforts put in by the singer to get hold of one. That's true MCM dedication! What's luv? Perhaps an MCM bag! Ashanti paired her document holder with a very casual outfit - with towering stilettos.
Much less casual and definitely on the right path to find out "What's Luv?", Ashanti was spotted in NYC carrying our brand new Veronika Isis for AW13. A beautiful black quilted bag decorated with gold studs. Perfect companion to a bold printed bodycon dress.
And to show that she is just like us, Ashanti posted her outfit of the day on her Instagram! What's not to luv?
Let's end the day with a bit of music...
