There were several reasons why the rain didn’t stop the show at the 2018 ESSENCE Street Style Festival and three of those reasons were actress/comedienne Amanda Seales, singer/actor Trevor Jackson and singer/actor Mack Wilds. In addition to providing a space where NYC’s most fashion-forward ladies and gents could come to celebrate all things Black fashion, style, beauty and commerce,  this year’s Street Style Festival also included several entertaining and enlightening discussions with a few of our favorite faces in the entertainment and fashion spaces. The crowd was at full attention for one conversation, in particular, that saw Seales sit down for a quick chat with Jackson and Wilds on what it’s really like to be a millennial guy on today’s social scene. But before the trio got the conversation started, they warmed up the crowd with an impromptu “performance” of New Edition’s classic hit ‘Can You Stand The Rain,’ complete with dance moves and a crowd-assisted sing-a-long session.
