This collection consists of three different dolls, Grace, Kara & Trichelle, and features more ethnic features such as fuller lips, a wider nose, distinctive cheek bones, and curly hair: Now, there is a reason I have […]


Just hints of sheer, please don’t get too excited and go over board this season: Judging from Milan Fashion Week’s runway shows, sheer will definitely be major for Spring as well! Eve nailed this trend right on with this look, while promoting “Whip It” in LA recently, a new movie she is in. From red […]


As Fashion Manifesto grows, and builds a fabulous readership of fashion lovers, it’s only right that beauty is incorporated into it!

As I was going through the pictures for the Hip-Hop Honor’s that recently passed in WireImage, trying to find close-ups of the shades Ashanti was wearing, I noticed something wasn’t right with Un-Foxy Brown: Un-Foxy committed one of the biggest faux pas you could ever commit! Usually this faux pas only occurs in the ‘hood, […]


When reworking your wardrobe for each season, it’s about preparation and execution: Preparation: being aware of trends, knowing the quintessential color palette for that season, cleaning out your closet and make sure all the Fall things are to the front, making a list of what to buy, and checking into FM ever day to stay […]
