In addition to being a mother and philanthropist, Jourdan is a self-taught cook. She hosts a lifestyle and cooking program titled “Well Dunn with Jourdan Dunn.” The show is available through Jay Z’s YouTube channel, Life+Times, and features a different celebrity guest each episode.

Would you Spend top dollar on Kids Clothing?

In today’s issue of the New York Post, The Fashion Reporter’s own Priscilla Monteiro was featured along with her children Vera-Angela Applyrs age 4 and Yasmine age 5months. The story highlights Priscilla as a mom in fashion who splurges on her children from time to time. Although she is known to mix high with low, quality and timelessness is always a factor. “What I used to spend on myself, I now spend on my children. I am in a place in my life right now where I spend less on myself so that my children can have an even brighter future” says Priscilla. The mom-a-nista shops at The Children’s Place, H&M, Gymboree, Jacardi, Zara, Bloomingdales, Bergdorf and Saks as well as high end consignment shops for her children. “Labels don’t particularly matter but my parents always put me in the best and in my opinion, we all deserve the best” says Priscilla.


Working in fashion has its perks and exposes insiders to the finer things in life. Priscilla spends a great deal of time and money at the hair and nail salon to upkeep her look. She also spends money on high grade extensions particularly from Janet Hair Collection. “Hair and beauty are a must in any industry, therefore I believe in the best which is why I stand by Janet’s Pure Virgin Remy hair which I blend in with my own naturally long tresses” Priscilla adds.


When it comes to beauty, she only uses the best from Algenist, Sensai, Nars, butter london, ghd and John Frieda styling tools. Being backstage and front row at some of the top fashion shows mixed with singing ABC’s to her children, certainly keeps Priscilla grounded.

Running a popular fashion blog, designing shoes and being a parent is more than a handful but the rewards and joy are priceless.
