JAIDEN'S Pick: Beautiful Black Women Of The Year

Beautiful black women grace this nation from coast to coast and the rest of the world. If I only knew them all, this post would run on forever and ever. You may happen to be a reader who's a beautiful black woman too; that means I'm talking to you too, sweetie.

These are women that I've watched throughout 2010. They have portrayed beauty, confidence, consistent style, some WACKINESS, and humanitarian services (giving back to the community), and more.

There are so many more beautiful black women to list. The following pics that I have posted do not come in ranking order. So take in the beauty of these BEAUTIFUL BLACK WOMEN OF THE YEAR:

Halle Berry

Zoe Saldana


Beyonce Knowles
Alicia Keys

Gabrielle Union

Meghan Good
Chanel Iman

Garcelle Beauvais
Vivica Fox - It may not be natural beauty, but it's beauty..

Do you agree that these are some beautiful black women? Hey my beautiful princesses of color... you belong here, too...

CHRIS BROWN And SPIKE LEE At The Knicks Game as Sneakerheads

Chris Brown and Spike Lee were spotted at the Knicks game looking sports-fascinated! Chris Brown was wearing a varsity jacket and Air Jordans, and Spike Lee was obviously "Knicks-inclined" with a whole New York Knicks get-up from head to toe, wearing Nike Air Maxs.

Lookin' nice, not bad... although Spike Lee's jersey could be a little shorter. Remember-- the longer the shirt, the shorter you look; the goal is to look tall.

SNOOP DOGG Looks Clownish In Faux Fur Hat & Semi-"Dope" Glasses

*SIGH* What is this man doing? I hope he was just playing around. He actually looks more sane with his braids and clear beads. The hat is not working and the glasses are... OK.

The glasses are by Vintage Frames Shop x Ultra Goliath 2 Sunglasses for $399. Do you like 'em??

Which is CHRIS BROWN's Best Look for 2010?

Chris Brown has had a lot of good looks that I admittedly have tried (of course I have a style of my own) because he's very adventurous with his style BUT.... for some of the stuff he wears,  I AIN'T GOING THAT DEEP IN THE JUNGLE.

That 3rd photo... ohhhh man... THEM BOOTS... What I call SHO-BOOTS... I haven't had such a belly laugh in a loooong time!! That 3rd pic is on my "Fash, Crash, and Burn" post. The middle photo is a nice, casual/preppy/retro-business kind of look. I think the shoes and sweater are hott and different. The 1st photo is what I like just a bit better than the 2nd one; the hood is a lil' quirky...but I can work with it..

THESE are what I know are better looks than the ones above...

NIKE Release ZOOM KOBE Shoes-- Could These Show Up On The All-Star B-Ball Court?

Nike Zoom Kobe VI LA   New Images

Could these ILL TO THE BONE basketball shoes created by Nike and KOBE BRYANT make it to the NBA All-Star floors, on the paint??!! These arrived right on the heels of the All-Star Game coming soon! I would like to see this.

The shoes have a real creative vibe different from the direction basketball shoes usually go in. Why? Check out the raised "animal prints" with a lil' story attached around different areas of the shoe.

I found these shoes on SneakerNews. Check out all the lil' details:

MACKDADDY Spring/Summer 2011 Preview -- All Swag...

Hmm... I could GET IT INNNNN to this. I like this MACKDADDY look. In case you don't know, this company is FRESH in Tokyo area so you can see from the pics that there is that urban, Japanese kind of vibe; Tokyo has always been very fashion-forward and the USA usually likes to do collaborations with Japan's fashion houses.

I've seen Pharrell Williams, Diggy Simmons, Bow Wow, and other celebs rockin' this look...
So can you!!!

Which Is KIM KARDASHIAN's Best Look For 2010?

So another post on finding the best look on a certain celebrity. first it was Amber Rose, and now i'm doing reality TV star Kim Kardashian. She was dubbed 2010's top-earning reality TV star with approximately $6 MILLION in earnings; that's a nice chunk of change, probably way more than what she gets for hanging.. and sleeping with... pro ball players (oops). I do hope she settles down soon...HOW DID I GET ON THIS SUBJECT?

Anyway, take a look at her other looks and decide:

Whaddaya think? You think she's a STYLE ICON? I think she's in fashionista status. Women can copy her style; she's not a bad dresser at all...


I did not make any mistake... LANVIN has released cufflinks that look exactly like their sneakers!! Check out pics!! I found this on UpscaleHype; ohhh boy, if I had $325 RIGHT NOW, I would cop these....

I Would Like To Know...In My Sane, Sane Mind... Who Would Wear THESE??!!

I'm not going to waste a lot of time posting on these ugly shoes (Vans Syndicate x WTAPS Sherpa). So I'll just put up pictures. I know that leopard is going to be a trend for 2011, but not this way. Girls, please don't WALK THIS WAY.

Which Is AMBER ROSE's Best Look For 2010?

AMBER ROSE has had a lot of crazy looks this year, and it included a lot of skin-tight pants and form-fitting dresses. There is no doubt that Amber Rose is a sexy person; she can rock that bald blonde head like no one can *LoL*

Whether she's famous for being an A-List Groupie or being an eccentric fashionista, she's got a style all her own. Check the pics above and point out for yourself which one is the best outfit (I found these looks on UpscaleHype). For me, the middle one is a FAST NO-NO. I mean... how do you turn shoelaces into a dress??!!

See more looks by searching "Amber Rose" in my Blogger browser.

PUMA x ALEXANDER McQUEEN Sneakers for 2011 As Tribute To Late McQueen

Alexander McQueen for Puma   Spring 2011

PUMA is doing a collaboration with Alexander McQueen's company for 2011. His sudden passing rocked the fashion world and put the Puma collabo on hold for much of 2010.. until now. The style of the shoes above, which was expected to be bright and captivating to reflect McQueen's mood or even Puma itself, has taken a very simplistic and somber tone, just to get into the true detail of the shoes.

If you look closely at the front and back soles, they have a triangular detail to reflect the high-octane mood of Alexander McQueen. There is also the satiny fabric detailing on the sides of the shoes with simple Alexander McQueen marks on the side and on a silver tongue tag.

Even though it's simple, I can see the art behind it; it's like a memorial, a piece of art to make you think. These will be on shelves early 2011.
See more pics below:
