Celebrity Fashion Stylist: Jammie Sean Smith
Born and raised in Texas, Jammie Sean Smith had a passion for the entertainment industry at a very young age. After high school Jammie moved to Los Angeles, CA where she became a celebrity fashion stylist. Jammie has worked widely in the music and fashion industries, not only styling for music videos, photo shoots and award shows, but utilizing her talents to design for tours and television events.
Jammie has worked with Usher, Chris Brown, Keri Hilson, Rihanna and Mariah Carey… just to name a few.
Nine years after soaking up the SoCal sun, Jammie took her talents to New York City to make the transition from behind the scenes to in-front of the camera. Her extensive fashion knowledge and love for people made an easy segue to host an entertainment segment for Style Music Network.

The Male Guru: Gerald Bowie
Guru: A teacher or master; a learned man; one who shares his knowledge to enlighten all ignorance and works for the mass thus uplifting society by imparting knowledge.
At least that’s what urban dictionary says. Ha.
Gerald is a Houston native and University of Texas graduate (hook ’em!). Gerald is a man’s man. He loves all things-dude: food, Xbox, his wife, football, and men’s fashion. Any woman within a 50-mile radius of Gerald calls him for advice on gift ideas for their men, marital advice and to get a really, REALLY good laugh. He works for Apple by day, and sniffs colognes at Saks by night. He quite literally lives and breathes men’s cologne.
We’ll hear from Gerald when it’s time to get your guy a gift for the holidays… or when we just need a dude’s opinion on something. We at WMS love Gerald not just because he knows his stuff, and not because he can make my husband laugh like a 12-year old little girl… but most importantly, he’s my son’s Godfather. Enough said!
