Antoinette Marie is So Crucial

What is So Crucial?

As inspired by Michael Dadourian, So Crucial is the embodiment of all words that depict what is hot, what is cool, what is awesome, what is dope, what is sick, what is NOW.

So Crucial is HOT to the tenth power.
So Crucial is the phrase to say, the words to be heard.
So Crucial is out of the box.
So Crucial is a feeling, a person, a thing, an event, a lifestyle.
So Crucial… you either get it, or you don’t. You either got it, or you don’t.
What is So Crucial to YOU?? Do you know?

You can’t be told what So Crucial is to you or what is So Crucial to you. Michael Dadourian would say, “So Crucial is everything in your life that makes you smile and feel naturally high.”

Antoinette Marie is So Crucial

My So Crucial MD branded has been visually around for nearly 10 years and I have a lot of early people to thank for the early interpretations of the look itself.  I have been fortunate and lucky enough to have friends and colleagues in the modeling industry take to my brand as the meaning behind the logo resonates I think with so many genuine people.  Antoinette is one of the true originals of #SoCrucialMD and she set the bar high when she took the clothes and complimented them with her beautiful, hour glass, figure and her style.

In life, we come across people that sure, they look beautiful outwardly but often times they fall short inwardly.  What so many people are programmed to do in life is judge quickly on the perceived album cover or lead single; without giving the entire track list a chance to resonate.  We as humans are so intricate and some of us take years to decipher.  Even when we think we know, we really have no idea the inner workings of the person walking in their respective shoes, or heels.

Antoinette Marie is a ride or die friend to those people lucky enough to know her best.  Her family is not only related by blood but by connection.  She is perfectly, imperfect and would be the first to admit it.  A. Marie will always mean so much by what she has done for me as a friend and what she has meant for my So Crucial MD brand.  Below are some of her first So Crucial MD images, along with an interview, new imagery (candid and professional), and more.

So Crucial by Brilliance (So Crucial Model Antoinette Marie Featured in Lyrics)

Antoinette Marie,

Not sure there is anyone quite like you. Your youthful beauty, brains, and ever so thoughtfulness has meant so much to me. You saw my brand back when not many did all those years ago.  You have shared my website, you have shared my brand, you have been fam to me.  When so many have come and gone in my life, you have been the one constant that has proven the test of time. You have never left me, my brand, my vision.  It has been a great, near 10 year connection.
