Watching my favorite a-diva on stage after my Thanksgiving celebration subsided and my steak, roast beef, rice, etc. (yum!) digested, I was like… Ok! She is definitely the baddest chick in the game! Hardest working as well. I think the only person that works harder is her costume designer: Her creative advisor and costume designer […]


I always said “it’s not about who thought of it first, it’s about who did it first”. But in a world where everyone is doing the same [exact] thing, it is now a matter of who did it better. Now we all know Beyonce did the blonde thing first and foremost. She has stood by […]


Imagine stepping off the V train in the Lower East Side; the streets are crowded with people from all walks of life, uniting under one rhythm in funky, colorful 80’s gear that we all try so hard to revive (and forget). Well, that’s pretty much what “unusual” singing sensation Cyndi Lauper had in mind when […]


4 words: Shu Umera Essence Absolue! This little bottle of magic have been causing chaos in hair salons all across the country. Could it be that a product is finally delivering on its promise to, well, do as it says? Shu Umera Art Of Hair launched the must-have hair product just two short weeks ago and it sold […]


And no, Michelle Obama is not starring in the return-to-Broadway production of the iconic stage play, but she did look lovely in a [literally] dazzling sleeveless gold gown and shawl designed by Indian-American designer Naeem Khan, who also designed the costumes for the 2006 movie “Dreamgirls”: Her & presidential husband Barack Obama welcomed Prime Minister […]


Crossing over from R&B to pop/techno (was she ever really R&B?)? Check. Cutting off all her hair, going from a bob to a crop? Check. Dressing crazy and rocking unheard of designers? Check. Using rock beats and slaying them with technically R&B vocals? Check. Since 1999 (when her Kaleidoscope album dropped) Kelis‘ style and sound […]


Before there was the sky-rocket rise of Kim Kardashian, there was only one other young lady that rose to the top of the socialite food chain that quickly: Genevieve Jones. Dubbed as the ‘black’ Paris Hilton, Genevieve frequents the front row at shows like Zac Posen, Marc Jacobs, and Proenza Schouler, and struts the red […]


This laser shoulder detail is the hottest on-stage costume ever! Ever! When I saw Rihanna‘s performance at the AMA’s Sunday night, I thought “hmm, something looks familiar”, then I brushed it off, continued to enjoy the performance, got up the following morning and browsed the web: LOW & BEHOLD, the fly folks over at Stuff […]


One of my style favorites, Kim Kardashian, rocked this white draped dress while hitting up the eBay Holiday Store in NYC Friday night, then rocked it again the very next day (gasp!) while out & about in Miami Beach: She first rocked it [left] with a black tuxedo blazer, a quilted black Chanel clutch and […]


Some time last week, Nicki Minaj hit the GQ Men Of The Year awards with her labelmate Drake, and both artists cleaned up nice. It was great seeing Drake in a suit (have we ever seen him in one before?), and it was especially great seeing the self-proclaimed black Hannah Montana in a dress: The […]
