Christian Milian showed off her post-baby body, which she says she is still working on improving, at Nylon & YouTube’s “Young Hollywood” Party recently:

There are a lot of trends going on here. Denim, fringe, graphics, and colors that don’t coordinate. It could have easily been a cute outfit had the Gucci belt been taken away, or the tank was plain. But what do I know?


Starting today, and continuing to Thursday, May 20, stars such as Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Beverly Knight, Elle Macpherson, Alexa Chung, Annie Lennox and many others are donating clothes from their walk-in closets to Oxfam Curiosity Shop in Selfridges store in London:

The charity pop-up shop will be staffed by A-Listers and will stock hand-picked high-end and vintage items donated by these celebrities, like the House Of Dereon dress Beyonce has on in the above pic. All funds raised will go to women’s projects supported by the charity around the world including Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka and South Africa.

A selection of 20 items including An Education actress Carey Mulligan’s Bafta dress will also be auctioned online so fans everywhere will get the chance to buy the unique pieces. To make an online bid go to Continue reading ‘A-List Stars Allow Fans To Play Dress Up’

I have always admired Lena Horne from generations away, but I never truly took an interest in her until recently (I’m more Grace Kelly obsessed than anything). It’s a shame that we choose to acknowledge magnitude’s of greatness, such as Ms. Horne, after they’re gone. But in honor of their legacy, their impact must be revisited. I have for you, the class, style and undeniable grace of Lena Horne:

Even as I check her record, and go through her style catalog, it was just classic! Every piece she wore in her prime are pieces I would search the ends of the world for, hoping they have my size. Nothing is outdated, nothing has faded, nothing makes you say “ugh, they wore that back then?” Oh how I would love to be a grand child anticipating the passing down of garments that no longer fit or tickles her fancy.

Cassie is, in my humble opinion, the flyest chick in the game. I mean, the others are fly too, but there’s something about this Cassie:

She hit up Candies 6th annual “Event To Prevent” benefit a couple days ago rocking a black one shoulder mini dress, and Giuseppe Zanotti ankle booties. But before that, she hit up the MET Costume Institute Gala (fashion’s most prestigious and single most important night) rocking a royal blue floor length dress with side split, with accenting shoes. Loving this look for several reason, well for one it’s my favorite color, and two it’s just plain fabulous! That sparkle shoulder detail really does the trick too! Then for the after party she rocked a LaQuan Smith gold sparkle gown with gold pumps to set the dress off. This Cassie is one fly chick, and never seems to dissapoint when it comes to the red carpet.

Look out for her new album, Electro Love dropping soon!

19-year-old Brazilian bombshell, Lais Ribieiro, has to be the “prettiest” model I’ve seen in a while. Pretty, not typically a word used in the fashion world. A world where its visual success strive on awkwardness and unrealistic portrayals of girls. But yes, Lais Ribeiro is pretty, relatable, and could possibly be your next door neighbor that you can’t seem to wrap your finger around why you’re so jealous of her:

Although she started her modeling career just last year modeling locally in her hometown of Brazil, Lais quickly snagged a Brazilian ELLE editorial then went on to sign with Women Management in NYC. She made her big debut at the Rag & Bone show in New York, and quickly snatched up runway credits from the impressive and prestigious likes of Continue reading ‘Generation NeXt: Lais Ribeiro’

Rihanna took some time out of her very busy schedule to snap a few pics with Rolling Stone magazine for a sexy spread, rocking high-waist shorts and an angel wing tank:

With spring here, it’s all about dewy flawless looking skin. With so much makeup around, it’s easy to forget about taking care of your skin or ways to maximize your foundation. This make-up Monday, I’m focusing on primers for your skin:

Most women don’t use a primer, and if that’s you then you’re definitely missing out! Primers help you use less foundation by filling in fine lines, wrinkles or large pores in your skin, and overall giving you a smooth clean look while saving you money! Use it before your foundation or without. These are my favorites and I hope you enjoy:

When America was first introduced to Michelle Obama, which was [of course] when Barack Obama began to campaign for presidency, pre-conceived notions were immediately drawn. Some people thought she came off too mean and unfriendly, others thought she was the Wonder Woman of our day, while others felt she should play her position- the background:

Me, being a fashion writer, of course immediately evaluated the soon-to-be First Lady’s personal style. I immediately wrote her off as a “nothing to see here.” Her style was  button-up shirt, knee-length skirt, and a classic set of pearls. Can’t forget the infamous hair flip and the always natural face, almost seeming like she never wore makeup. But I look at the first lady now and she just has me like “whoa! Okay, didn’t know you had it like that!”

Her metamorphosis from corporate lawyer flair to stunning style icon is definitely an evolution to take notice of. In the early 2008 year, she mostly rocked a side bang with a flip and nearly never dabbled in “popping” colors. She most definitely played it safe.

It’s wedding season, and while most brides have their dresses somewhere far away from their to-be husbands, bridal designers are preparing next years brides with their new collections. Monique Lhuillier played with plenty sheer for her collection with a few standout details such as draping and florals/ruffles:

Lanvin really has my heart this season, as I already featured one of their shoes for ‘Shoegasm’. Really loving their chain details and the spin they put on standard fabrics such as suede and snakeskin. I’m really feeling these pumps most of all:

With a dark wooden heel that measures at 4.5 inches, and half-inch wood and leather platform, this shoe lessens your chance of saying “my heel broke” by up to 40%. #omgfacts. It has a detachable gold chain at the ankle and a black leather ankle strap. You can get these shoes here for $1,900, but as usual they are for drooling purposes only.
