Hollywood is filled with celebrities who have Caribbean heritage. You can quickly think of at least 10-15 male actors, singers, musicians or dancers who have roots in the Caribbean Basin.

Here’s our list of five Caribbean female stars you probably didn’t know were from your home country:

The two quickly transitioned into R&B and hip-hop in the 80s and 90s, releasing hits such as The Showstopper, Push It (Remix) and Shoop. Despite disbanding in 2002, Salt-N-Pepa continues to make special appearances and features for award shows and other performances, including, most recently, New Kids on the Block’s new track, Bring back the time.

Talk about a total transformation!

No matter how honed a celebrity’s innate sense of style, having a stylist can take their fashion game to the next level – before and after makeovers can be pretty stunning.

Here are 15 celebrities before and after finding a stylist:

introduction

Since last discussing Kimbell Royalty Partners (KRP) in my previous article, oil prices have strengthened further in the second half of 2021 and have seen their payout yield rise in tandem to now reach a high of 9.34 % against its return of 6.78% last time. Looking ahead, it looks like business is business as usual in 2022, albeit very profitable with a very high return of 10%+ all but assured thanks to the very strong oil price outlook as shown in this follow-up article which also reviews them then published the results for the second half of 2021.

Executive summary and ratings

Since many readers are likely short on time, the table below provides a very brief summary and scores for the main criteria assessed. This Google document provides a list of all my equivalent ratings as well as more information about my rating system. The following section provides a detailed analysis for readers wishing to delve deeper into their situation.

Kimbell Royalty Partner Ratings

Author

*Instead of simply assessing distribution coverage through distributable cash flow, I prefer to use free cash flow as it provides the strictest criteria and also best captures the true impact on their financial position.

Detailed analysis

Cash flow from Kimbell Royalty Partners

Author

Following the continued rise in oil prices during the fourth quarter of 2021, it was not surprising to see their cash performance follow in tandem with their operating cash flow ending the year at 91.4 million. million, thus reaching more than double its result of 44 million dollars during the first half of 2021 and thus pointing to an acceleration. In addition to representing a strong recovery from their previous result of $62.2 million in 2020, it also beats their previous best result of $80.8 million in 2019 and thus marks a new high point. Thanks to their variable distribution policy which ties their distributions to their free cash flow, this has also seen their distribution payouts reach a new record of $47.3 million in 2021 with a strong coverage of 135.30%.

Looking ahead, the current very strong outlook for triple-digit oil prices in 2022 should see their payouts even higher than in 2021, as their free cash flow should increase in parallel, although the magnitude exact cannot necessarily be quantified due to the high level. oil price volatility. Although it is technically possible that oil prices will crash later in 2022, this seems unlikely after the Russian-Ukrainian war, which has further worsened an already very optimistic outlook that had already seen many analysts talk of three-digit oil prices even before the war. Given the new possibility that lost Russian oil production will further tighten an already tight market, it seems reasonable to expect these currently very high prices to persist through 2022 and possibly even into 2023, thus raising their cash performance and therefore their distributions to new heights.

Due to the very low capital intensity of their mining rights operations, the only other variable with respect to their distributions is their capital allocation strategy. Since they operate with a variable payout policy, if they increase the relative share of their free cash flow going to their unitholders, this would also help increase their distributions, although this seems unlikely to happen in 2022. with their capital allocation strategy which should remain unchanged. , according to the management commentary included below.

“I think you’re right that for the duration of this year we’re going to maintain 75%. I think you’re right to point out that the ratio is just going to keep accelerating downward because we have a greater amount of cash flow and therefore 25% of that cash flow is just going to create further decline overtime leverage.”

– Kimbell Royalty Partners Q4 2021 conference call.

We can see that management seems determined to keep its capital allocation strategy and therefore its variable distribution policy unchanged in 2022, with 25% of its free cash flow being retained to help deleverage. It appears that management wants to see its net leverage ratio at 1.00 or less, per the management commentary included below, which will likely take a number of years to achieve, as discussed later.

“I think a few years ago, maybe 5 to 10 years ago, if you had asked us what the appropriate level of debt would be for the royalty business, we would have said less than twice the debt compared to EBITDA. That was kind of a rule of thumb for upstream E&P companies, so certainly for a mining company with no CapEx obligations below 2x seems perfectly reasonable. I think when we look at the environment, when we look at the best governance of its category on E&P companies, I think that has changed now to probably be less than ad hoc.

-Kimbell Royalty Partners Q4 2021 Conference Call (previously linked).

Capital structure of Kimbell Royalty Partners

Author

Despite strengthening their cash performance throughout the second half of 2021, their net debt actually increased to end the year at $210.1 million, 40.07% above its $150 million level. dollars during the previous analysis. This primarily relates to their additional $54.8 million in oil and gas property acquisitions, as well as various other relatively small miscellaneous cash outlays, such as loan origination costs. By 2022, unless there are new acquisitions, their net debt will tend to decline as they will retain 25% of their free cash flow, but the magnitude obviously remains uncertain as it depends on highly volatile oil prices.

Kimbell Royalty Partners leverage ratios

Author

Unsurprisingly, their higher net debt resulting from their acquisitions pushed their leverage higher after the second half of 2021 with their net debt to EBITDA and net debt to operating cash flow ending the year at 2.41 and 2.30 respectively. In addition to being above their results of 1.40 and 1.48 in the previous analysis that followed the first half of 2021, their new results are now in the moderate territory between 2.01 and 3, 50. Meanwhile, their net leverage ratio that management uses ended 2021 at just 1.7, as shown in slide five of their spring 2022 investor presentation, which differs from my net debt to EBITDA ratio primarily due to the different treatment of gains on derivative instruments. Fortunately, from a financial stability perspective, there is no day and night difference between these results, especially given their capital allocation strategy which matches their cash outflows to their cash inflows, excluding acquisitions.

Looking ahead, the very strong oil price outlook for 2022 makes it highly likely that their leverage will plunge simply due to the higher earnings component from 2021, which could quickly see management achieve its net debt target of 1.00 or less. While oil prices are unlikely to stay above $100 a barrel forever, that alone seems unlikely to push management to increase the share of its free cash flow allocated to distributions. Using their 2021 earnings as a basis, reducing their net leverage ratio from 1.70 to 1.00 would require a significant reduction in their net debt of 41.18%, which equates to $86.6 million. dollars and so since that’s roughly equal to their entire operating cash flow for 2021, it’s likely to take several years to get there.

Kimbell Royalty Partners Liquidity Ratios

Author

Even though their leverage has increased, fortunately their liquidity has remained broadly unchanged after the second half of 2021, with their current ratio dropping to 1.60 from its previous result of 1.33, thus roughly negating their leverage ratio. cash which decreased to 0.25 from its previous result of 0.45. . Meanwhile, their credit facility which houses all of their debt has seen its borrowing base increase to fund their acquisition, although at $275 million it remains only slightly above 217.1. millions of dollars that they have already taken. Fortunately, their capital allocation strategy means it should no longer be needed and should see its availability increase as their 25% retained free cash flow repays its withdrawals, in the absence of any future acquisitions, helping thereby smoothing out any need for refinancing in June 2024 when it matures.

Conclusion

After a year of high oil prices in 2021, it looks like looking ahead, 2022 will represent another year of status quo with the same capital allocation strategy. Although, fortunately, with the current very strong outlook for oil prices, it still looks to be very profitable, with the triple-digit oil price outlook potentially lining up with record payouts. Given that their payout yield is already at a high 9.35%, even without any further increases, I now think a move to a buy rating is appropriate with a very high yield of 10%+ for 2022 virtually assured.

Crossing Canal Street on my way to the Soho Grand during New York Fashion Week this month, I saw a crowd of colorful outfits surrounded by paparazzi and street photographers and thought to myself: Certainly not.

There was no way all of these people were, like me, on their way to see the new Hervé Léger collection – a name I haven’t spoken seriously in over a decade, since the days of class and 16 year olds. They must be waiting for some celebrity to stay at the hotel, I thought, or maybe something else was going on. But no. Turns out we were all there for the same reason: we heard that the certified “hot girl” brand we coveted as teenagers was making a comeback, and so we flocked there in droves, as if a bandage dress Bat- The signal had appeared in the sky.

Hervé Léger was founded in 1985 by designer Hervé Peugnet, who began his career under the direction of Karl Lagerfeld. As vogue Writer and vintage expert Liana Satenstein recently explained in an episode of The return, Peugnet, while working at Fendi, saw how the brand used strips of felt to construct its fur coats, and was inspired by this technique, knitting strips of stretch fabric together to create an effect ” bandage” close to the body for its own collection. (In a review, Times critic Amy Spindler called it a “sexy mummy look”.) When Peugnet went out on his own, Lagerfeld advised him to change his name so that Americans could pronounce it more easily, and Hervé Léger was born.

Although Peugnet sent other silhouettes to the catwalk, it was the bandage dress that became his legacy. Models like Cindy Crawford made it a hot item in the mid-’90s – so hot, in fact, that the brand was acquired by BCBG group Max Azria in 1998. (Peugnet left soon after.) This n It was when American celebrities like Lindsay Lohan started wearing bandage dresses on red carpets and in clubs in the early 2000s, making them the go-to “going out” look. In 2007, the brand was officially relaunched under Max Azria and debuted at New York Fashion Week the following year. The moment the bandage dress was worn in an episode of Gossip Girlevery aspiring Manhattan elite wanted to get in there.

“I think I wore a Hervé Léger dress to every event I had from 18 to 21,” actress Lea Michele said at the brand’s presentation this year. She also worked at a bar mitzvah dress shop in New Jersey and said she “definitely helped sell a few Hervé Léger dresses” there as well.

At a cost of over $500, the bandage dress in particular may be prohibitively expensive for adults, let alone teenagers, but its hefty price tag makes it a status item. I would have named my firstborn Hervé for the opportunity to wear one when I was in high school. Now, enough time has passed that used bandage dresses can be found on the RealReal for a fraction of the price, and as people are starting to go out again, the body-con is back in vogue. When the strategist polled 100 teens last year on what they were buying, the most popular style of top was a corset.

Over the past year, RealReal claims to have seen a 16% increase in the number of people buying Hervé Léger, with demand also picking up in 2022. In February, searches were up 119% over the same period last year, and purchases were up 67% in the first two weeks of the month, compared to the last two weeks of January.

“People are rebelling against the practical dress comfort that has been their uniform for the past few years,” said Noelle Sciacca, the company’s women’s editorial manager. “They dress in and out, opting for styles that are both bare and tight. Add to that the fact that iconic trends from the Y2K era are at the peak of their popularity.”

After its heyday in the early 2000s, the bandage dress went out of fashion along with trucker hats and low-rise jeans, and “going out” in general began to look more casual. In 2017, the BCBG Max Azria group effectively filed for bankruptcy and Hervé Léger was acquired by Authentic Brands, which also rightfully owns Juicy Couture and Aeropostale. Since then, the company has worked to bring the brand back to life, appointing designer Christian Juul Nielsen as creative director in 2018. His presentation during New York Fashion Week was its biggest to date.

“When Hervé Léger contacted me, I was intrigued because it was a brand with a story,” Nielsen told The Cut. “How do I update that? How do I go in and take something that’s almost classic and make it something new?”

First, he started by consulting the archives. ’90s photos of Karen Mulder, Helena Christensen and, of course, Cindy Crawford were all over her mood board. “That’s really what I said yes to, because I can see that kind of style is relevant again – that style of mid-’90s miniskirts and healthy beautiful girls,” he said. -he declares.

But he also wanted to update the brand’s “sexy mummy” thing by using different fabrics and introducing new silhouettes. Some of the fall bandage-style looks, for example, were made with mohair instead of a viscose blend, which gives them a more comfortable and luxurious feel. He also used nylon fringe, which also allows for more movement than the traditional bandage dress.

“When I work, I try to think about girls I know, girls I hang out with and socialize with,” Nielsen explained. “I think about what they like to wear when they go out. Girls love bangs! It’s fun! So that’s the first step. But how do I make sure she looks cool? and relevant in a fringed dress, and not like a dated Boomerang photo on Instagram?

One way Nielsen has updated the Hervé Léger silhouette is with – panting – trousers! Really tight pants. (So ​​leggings.) He styled them as a layer under dresses and skirts, and also designed fashionable bike shorts.

The collection sure looks more modern, but can it match the hype of new body-conscious brands like Nensi Dojaka, who won the LVMH Young Designer award last year? More importantly, can the modern woman really live and breathe in a Hervé Léger today? Nielsen says her clothes aren’t as restrictive as they may have been in the past. “I mean, I can squat in there,” said Sports Illustrated model Olivia Ponton, who wore green pants and a crop top, and demonstrated for me in case I didn’t believe her. Lea Michele also said she wore Nielsen’s bandage dresses when she was pregnant last year and found them supportive. But the brand’s sizes only go up to an extra-large, and I’m not entirely convinced that even today’s bandage dresses would handle a burger well. When my friends gave me a neon green vintage RealReal as a birthday present last year, I had to return it because I could barely move.

Comfort has never really been the purpose of a Hervé Léger, however. The bandage dress is designed to make you look and feel hot, and for the five seconds I wore a vintage one, I felt like a very different, very sexy person. I took about a million selfies and posted one on my “Finstagram”. And then I took it off and felt even better.

Jimmy Fallon officially bought an NFT, and he showed it on national television. On Monday’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, host and guest Paris Hilton have shared their new Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs – or rather, the physical and printed copies of them. Fallon’s is decked out in nautical gear, complete with a captain’s hat and striped shirt. Hilton has furrier red fur and a pair of black shades. The segment was deeply awkward, with lukewarm audience reactions at best. Most of the time, it seemed odd compared to Fallon’s typical fare of promoting celebrity shows and movies, or doing silly games like karaoke. Why were these celebrities talking about crypto on late night TV?

Hilton and Fallon may seem like an odd pair to discuss blockchain, but Hilton is actually really in NFTs. She’s the reason Fallon even knows what they are. “You taught me what was going on, then I bought a monkey,” Fallon said, in a sort of boast that sounded a bit more like a mea culpa. And if you’ve taken a look at Hilton’s social media lately, you’ll notice she’s increasingly portraying herself as a crypto influencer-evangelist, as well as an early adopter of the metaverse trend ( true Hilton followers might remember that in 2021, she launched “Paris World” in Roblox). the Tonight’s show the episode ended with Hilton announcing her own NFT collection, a collage of GIFs largely about her and her husband called “My Forever Fairytale”. Every member of the public got one for free, and we can only assume they all thought it was definitively a better gift for the live audience than a flat screen TV or whatever Ellen likes to give away.

The short segment is another mainstream recognition of non-fungible tokens by celebrities – and not just those heavily involved in technology. So what’s going on here?

What is an NFT?

An NFT, or Non-Fungible Token, is just a token (sorry, it’s already in the name) that indicates you own a digital item. The main distinction is that it is unique. That’s what fungible means – though you’d be forgiven for thinking these NFTs are for non-mushrooms only. (Please laugh.) Ownership is tracked via the blockchain; each NFT is a unique token on the blockchain. Think of it as a Pokémon trading card. There will be a number of copies of the same card type, right? Corn each card is technically different. These cards also have different values, depending on their rarity and popularity. (You can read more about NFTs here, as well as their impact on climate change.)

Hilton isn’t the only celebrity doing NFTs. Far from there. There’s Lindsay Lohan’s fursona – hated by furs, apparently – and Grimes’ perhaps less surprising “War Nymph” series, in which winged babies wave swords. While these examples are clearly priceless art, not all NFTs skyrocket in price or desirability. That said, a few specific communities have sprung up in the world of NFT commerce, with some creators creating a series of designs that stick to a certain theme and then attract particular attention, much like a series of popular collectibles. (Or Funko Pop.)

Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) is one such collection. (Here you can note that whether or not the digital art is Well seems to have nothing to do with NFT becoming popular or valuable.) The BAYC Collection consists of 10,000 unique digital illustrations of avatar-like monkeys, depicted from the shoulders up – each with a different expression and wearing different clothes and accessories.

Those monkeys are everywhere lately. People seem to be going… [long-suffering pause] shit for them. The brand awareness is so powerful that it has earned BAYC some important collaborations, such as a recent one with Adidas. You may also have spotted BAYC images on Twitter, as shoppers have often turned these digital images into avatars. Or maybe you’ve noticed buyers being grilled by people joking that “stealing” one of these coins is as easy as right-clicking/saving as.

So you’re saying I can steal Jimmy Fallon’s Bored Ape by downloading the JPEG?

Technically speaking, actually owning the NFT simply means owning a “token” to match it (hmm), rather than just the JPEG, which… can be downloaded by anyone, any number of times? We will let you solve this problem.

Why do celebrities buy these NFTs?

Short answer: because they can afford it. Scarcity, speculation, and hype tend to attract a certain type of buyer. The profile of that buyer (or artist) can be a sort of feedback loop that makes the NFT more desirable. The resulting price increases may be soak. Rinse, repeat.

Longer answer: Just like any trendy merchandise, NFTs that are perceived as valuable have become something of a status symbol. A Beeple NFT sold for $69 million at Christie’s, which the auction house said puts Beeple “among the three most valuable living artists,” according to The Verge. Beeple, real name Mike Winkelmann, has reason to be popular. He has about 2.5 million followers on social platforms and is famous for creating and posting new art every day – the NFT is a 5,000 day compilation of it. And what did this lucky NFT winner get? A digital file, and also, as The Verge puts it, “some vague rights to present the image.” The buyer also gained the ability to tell people they have a Beeple NFT. Whoever spent that much on it is probably thrilled to own something made by this cool guy. Fun!

Some NFT collectors also believe these items will increase in value, much like priceless physical works of art. For a number of NFTs, they’ve been right so far. Here’s an animated cube that originally cost $500, but last sold for $17,000.

And here’s where things get even hairier. How do you predict which NFTs will become extremely profitable to resell? I don’t think any of us would have anticipated the popularity of Bored Ape NFTs – let alone the current version of reality where a growing group of celebrities have turned their social media images into ugly illustrations of primates. Deciding which to buy becomes a gamble, in which making money requires finding someone else to sell that NFT to. It’s a “bigger scam,” as Dan Olson put it in an episode of Folding Ideas. Making money always requires someone to be the “biggest jerk” in the chain of buyers, says Olson, someone willing to pay bigger and bigger sums. (Some have made compelling arguments that NFTs are just a tech elite pyramid scheme.) If you’re buying as a “collector,” it’s that price tag that plays into the value of the item. as a status symbol or “flex”.

Add to that the fact that celebrities hold enough influence over popular culture to effectively value NFTs — which don’t necessarily have intrinsic value — and it seems increasingly skeezier. With each additional purchase of Bored Ape (or any NFT of the moment), celebrities are legitimizing the brand more, the idea that it’s attractive, and the idea that we should want to spend money on it. By sharing the Bored Ape, a number of celebrities are even endorsing other cryptocurrency brands, creating this halo of legitimacy shared by the purchases of rich and powerful people. Think of it this way, and Fallon and Hilton’s decision to “share” their NFTs feels more like naked promotion to inflate their value.

Ultimately, it’s a game for the rich; for celebrities who can part with that piece of change as easily as I could buy a bag of crisps. Although the metaphor enough work, because the fries are real and I can actually eat them. It’s depressing how easy it would be to lose a huge amount of money on an NFT buy that never becomes popular enough to get the money back.

So… why monkeys?

Owning a Bored Ape is “cool” now. Above all, it is expensive! There are a total of 10,000 Bored Ape NFTs, all of which sold out in 12 hours for around $190 each. 10,000 different versions might seem like a lot, but it’s a small enough number to still be considered a limited edition. At the time Fallon bought his BAYC NFT, it was around $216,000, the LA Times reported, in an article that also notes that the value could be even higher on resale given that it “makes the buzz on the show”. (Although, depending on your feelings for Fallon, you could also argue that his interest in BAYC will eventually to diminish its value.) And he’s not the only one buying. Logan Paul bought one (which follows), as do Eminem, Steve Aoki, Steph Curry, The Chainsmokers, Shaquille O’Neal, Gwyneth Paltrowand of course Paris Hilton, among others.

BAYC does other things to keep things interesting for their lucky 10,000. They’ve released a free digital “serum” for Bored-Ape owners that turns their Bored Ape NFTs into “Mutant Ape” NFTs — essentially by simply altering the art to make the primates look like zombie-monkeys — with a “ Kennel Club” line of dogs with traits based on the original apes. As you might expect, purchasing either of these NFT series has become very expensive.

BAYC also likes to refer to itself as a kind of “social club”. They held meetups in California and New York – apparently 5,000 members literally ate bananas together in Manhattan. There’s also a private Discord, where NFT owners can apparently meet and chat, giving it another kind of exclusivity. This isn’t unique to BAYC – a number of these high profile NFT communities have them, including one called Pudgy Penguin. We don’t know if any celebrities are taking part, but personally I like to think of Shaq, Eminem, Paris Hilton and now Jimmy Fallon, all of whom are sharing photos of primates. It’s much nicer to imagine a world where these celebrities are legitimately excited about their personal monkeys, instead of just pumping them for possible future resale on a TV show with massive audiences.

Correction: An earlier version of this story stated that owning the NFT meant owning the “trading rights” to it. This is incorrect, because owning the NFT means owning a token. We have edited the article to reflect this.

The fashion world is mourning another major loss. Famous designer Thierry Mugler has passed away.

The French icon’s official Instagram page confirmed the sad news in a brief announcement on Sunday alongside a simple, somber black square.

“We are devastated to announce the passing of Mr. Manfred Thierry Mugler on Sunday January 23, 2022. May his soul rest in peace,” the caption read, with the message repeated in French.

The cause of death has not yet been made public.

Mugler’s work has been celebrated for decades. Almost 20 years after launching her brand in 1973, Demi Moore brought it to the big screen in a now-legendary black dress worn in her movie ‘Indecent Proposal’.

Most recently, Kim Kardashian turned heads in a stunning Mugler ensemble for the 2019 Met Gala. Other superstars including Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Reese Witherspoon, Megan Fox and more have all worn the label on the red carpet and at other high profile events over the years.

Mugler was also known for its successful line of fragrances in addition to its fashion-forward wardrobe essentials.

His passing follows the loss of two other fashion titans. Vogue editor-in-chief André Leon Talley died earlier this week, also aged 73, and Louis Vuitton creative director Virgil Abloh died in September after a battle with cancer. He was 41 years old.
