CHRIS BROWN Chillin' On The Beach In Billionaire Boys' Club

This is just like me, chillin' on the beach by myself, just me and my phone, texting friends while watching the waves crash onshore...or having a friend or two with me. Chris Brown was spotted with a lady, wearing a Billionaire Boys' Club "Dancing Astronaut" hoodie for $320.

You like?? To me, it's a very versatile look in which you can dress it up or dress it down. From your local beach to a posh but casual evening with friends, from Detroit to Los Angeles, rock this only the best way you know how.

CASSIE, NICKI MINAJ, AND AMBER ROSE Fashionable at Nicki Minaj's 26th BDay Party

Spotted at the TAO Event was Cassie, Nicki Minaj, and Amber Rose looking flyy at Nicki's birthday bash. You know when they go out, they have to go ALL OUT.

What's notable that I must point out is Cassie's dress. This dress was the talk of the blogosphere because this dress was a Herve Leger Contrast-Trim Dress valued at $1,450. It was complemented with strapped stilettos.

But all women were looking on-point, flirty, girly, flashy all rolled into one. YOU LIKE??

Popular Item For Women This Season: JEGGINGS!!

I first saw these in a commercial on TV, leggings that look like jeans. At first actually, I thought these were a joke...until.... women everywhere started wearing them.

It's a complete surprise to me... like these? REALLY??  I'll have to say that you do because in the category of denim jeans, which is a billion-dollar item, and "jeggings," which are fairly new, has already commanded $178 million in sales. These jeggings are described as stylish yet extremely comfortable and stretchy, and are often mistaken for real denim jeans. Celebrities such as Beyonce, Rihanna, Pink, and one of the gospel singers of Mary Mary was spotted wearing them.

These can be found in department stores from Wal-Mart to Macy's nationwide and probably internationally; designer labels have caught on to this hott new trend and have released their own version of jeggings, too; prices range from $10 or cheaper to just over $100.

These jeggings have been around for a while, apparently, but why is it that when a celeb wears it, it becomes the hottest thing?? *LoL*

LADY GAGA'S Crazy Fashion Gets Crazier... What's Next??


I don't even have to explain it to you; this post is more of a "see-for-yourself" kind of thing. Lady Gaga's shocking wardrobe doesn't need pointing out, in fact, it can be seen from a mile away, literally-- on a clear day *lol*. Enter into Gaga's craziness and the fact that her wardrobe's only gonna get crazier; I'll just stand back and sense that you're hypnotized into all this..

Check out the pics.. and NOOO... You can't find these anywhere, maybe except inside Lady Gaga's deep, deep mind. *SMH*

Interesting.... isn't it?? You can nod your head now.

BEYONCE Rocks Custom $30K Hermes Bag x Buys JAY-Z A $2m BUGATTI!

Queen Bey, Queen Bey, Queen Bey... JAY-Z was sure glad to "put a ring on it." Beyonce is known to be frugal and is a 'make-sense' shopper and spends far less than she would have when we're talking about the ratio of wealth/income to cash burn rate.

But heyyyy.... it was JAY-Z's birthday, so why not shell out a lil' bit of cash?

Beyonce knocked the haters dead when she was spotted with her husband, carrying a custom spiked Hermes Birkin bag valued at $30,000!! To this day, I'm still trying to figure out why that bag costs so much money. I understand its exclusivity and painstaking craftsmanship, but WOOOOWWWW....

She also reportedly bought JAY-Z a brand-new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport valued at more than $2 million dollars! Never heard of it?? Well it is the car to see and to be seen in. It comes ready with a 1001-hp, 8.0 Liter, quad-turbo W-16 engine, butter-smooth seats, vault-like structure, and a humble-looking attitude.

This car simply means BOSS MONEY and that "you have arrived." only the best of the best should have it; I'm not feeling the latest rappers copping these Bugatti's just to show off; it cheapens the image of the car, which is uber-exclusive, uber-sporty, yet very NOBLE, meaning a person of Jay-Z's status and the like (music, fashion, Wall Street, etc.) should have this kind of car.

Beyonce, you go girl!!!
(She reportedly earned ~$87 million THIS YEAR..)

CHANEL Makes Men's Boots!!!! U Must See!!!

Chanel Men's Leather / Snakeskin Boots

CHANEL rarely makes items for men, and when they do, it's a HEADLINER of a story. These are premium leather and snakeskin boots priced at $1400.

As predicted, whereas a famous couture label introduces an outstanding women's line, they later come out with a subpar men's line (i.e. BALMAIN). You guys know where I'm going with this...

The top half of the boot looks great, but what's up with the lower half? The toe of the boot looks puffy, odd, and like it belongs in Payless Shoe Source (not dogging the store though). I think the toe should be more slim and streamlined like Gucci or Salvatore Ferragamo, don't you think?

Hopefully the next boots that Chanel come out with will be even more stylish than the ones they have now.

KANYE WEST Photo Shoot With I-D Magazine

Kanye West, again, is in one of my posts. I comment on him often not for his music--my niche is fashion--but for his style sense. It's so cool, he's in another realm in terms of thinking about style, how to make pieces flow and pop, draw attention at the same time. It is simply ART in fashion form. I just like it.

West is wearing a Tom Ford dinner jacket and slippers, Dior Homme wax jeans, and jewelry by Erickson Beamon.

I found his photo shoot on UpscaleHype. Check out some of his pics:

VICTORIA BECKHAM Poses in an... OK dress; Angelina Jolie's Better...

In a recent post, I posted a picture of Angelina Jolie in a white-hot Versace angora dress. Here is Victoria Beckham in a rather... lazy-looking dress. I don't know if it's just me, but it looks like she's trying a little hard. Just be natural Victoria, and smile more..

This dress is borderline, which means it doesn't make it into my "Fash, Crash, and Burn" posts. That's a good thing...

COOL DIGS: Spring 2011 Lace-Up Emilio Pucci Boots - Ladies, C'mon Inside!

Pucci The Lace Up Pucci Boot

Men and women alike drool over these, most recently in a spring 2011 fashion show. Women do want to look sexy in them and it makes all legs look long and slim. Men just wanna see their loves put these  great boots on.

Well... enough talking and more STARING.. these are a work of art...

COOL DIGS: Trickers x waste(twice) Longwing boots and Brogue Derby Shoes

Tricker'sxwaste(twice) two-tone Brogue Derby

Long title for a post, I know, but I had to get it all out. I spotted these cool, "Rosewood" and 1920s Harlem Renaissance shoes on SlamxHype.

These can be easily dressed up or down. Up meaning with a dapper, neutral color suit with a floral color shirt and bold tie, and down meaning with a nice Levi's jacket and jeans ensemble. Check out one more pic:

The Longwing Boot - Note the white tongue and heel tab; UNIQUE!

T.I. In Louis Vuitton Sunglasses Before Heading To Prison

T.I. is once again in prison (I really hope that he comes to grips with this whole prison thing and straightens up), but hey, the so-called "King of the South" doesn't head there in rags. T.I. filmed several music videos for his album, and in a few of those videos, he was wearing Louis Vuitton Possession Pilote Sunglasses ($560) in black. You like?? Of course you must; these are hott!

T.I., please don't go back to prison ever again. You have money, a family, and more important things in life to focus on than smoking weed. Show an example!!

This goes great with anything from casual to an 'after-5' look...

Willow Smith: European Tour Invite from Justin Bieber!

These two fashionistas are truly taking the music world by storm. One is barely legal, and one isn't even a teen yet and already they will be doing tours in Europe. Justin Bieber invited "Whip My Hair," 9-year-old singer Willow Smith to tour with Bieber for a couple of concerts next year.

Wow... even 'kids' have fashion and fame rolled into one *lol*


This woman right here has got to have one of the biggest collections of Louboutins there is!! Check out socialite and TV personality Kim Kardashian walking in sky high Christian Louboutin Misfit Stiletto Sandals ($1,425). She sure can rock them, can she?

It also looks oh so good on her when she's getting into the HOTTEST NEW SUPER-LUXURY CAR that's out now: The Rolls-Royce Ghost ($245,000+), which is designed, positioned, and priced right below the BIG DOG, GRANDDADDY OF IT ALL: The Rolls-Royce Phantom. See pics below:

NICKI MINAJ wore the same thing in baby blue during a performance for VH-1.

Check Kim Kardashian going to her white-hott Rolls-Royce Ghost:

Angelina Jolie Changes The Game With Versace "Sweater Gown"

I'm sure you've heard about it by now, but Angelina Jolie was looking very elegant yet comfortable in an Angora material Versace gown at "The Tourist" movie premiere in New York. She was looking hott in the dress with a plunging neckline and a dangerous slit to show her slender legs.

Brad pitt grabbed her butt. Hey, he loves his girl, or the Angora material is soft LOL. She really wowed a whole crowd of people with her elegance and sexy "Tomb Raider-esque" looks tied into one.

"I don't really think I'm THAT interesting," Jolie said in a recent interview. ARE YOU KIDDING, ANGIE? Really? Ever since you came out with "Tomb Raider," you have had men's attention. See more pics below...

Angelina Jolie Angelina Joile and Brad Pitt dazzle on the red carpet at the world premiere of "The Tourist" at the Ziegfield Theater in New York.

This is very different. A "sweater gown" is a bold move on the red carpet, but Jolie pulls it off exceptionally well.

SWAGGER x LEVI Jeans. Niiice...

SWAGGER x Levis   5WA99er 505

It's nice to see an urban label do a flawless collaboration with one of the world's most dedicated fan bases when it comes to clothes, specifically denim: LEVI's. Levi's has been selling millions of its popular and sturdy jeans that come in many different styles.

Now here comes label SWAGGER, which made Levi 505 jeans in a heavily distressed indigo selvedge style that gives it a very broken-in, comfortable looking, and course, swagger style jeans. These jeans will be available in SWAGGER stores starting December 11.

Check the photo above. That's a good style to go with. Pair the jeans with a matching shirt and preferably boots or high-top, neutral boots. WHY NEUTRAL?? We're talking 'bout SWAGGER jeans; show off the jeans, not the shoes. See more pics below..

AMBER ROSE Keeps It Real....Casual

AMBER ROSE has really made herself a name around the media world as a sexy symbol and most notably "Kanye's girlfriend"---well, ex-girlfriend now. I was on UpscaleHype and saw this pic of her dressing real casual. Do you like her look? Especially the plaid glasses? The glasses are vinatge IDC 92 Sunglasses.

She was real casual... stepping out and into the Lambo... talk about FABOLOUS *hint-hint* casual....

BIG SEAN's Effortless Style...

It truly takes BIG talent to pull off a look so simple. The reason being is that some people just try way too hard to be stylish and casual that it ends up being... on my 'FASH, CRASH AND BURN' posts.

Check out Detroit native rapper BIG SEAN who pulls off a simple look such as a white tee, dark denim jeans, simple sneakers, and a "man bag" to style. Keep in mind fellas, there is NOTHING WRONG WITH A MAN BAG... it just depends on whether it looks more like a lady's purse is when it's a problem.

This rapper also sports his simple jewelry (chain), YSL pocket tee with a red handkerchief in the pocket, TI$A sneakers ($125) and an MCM duffle bag.

It just don't take much to look good. If it's hard for you, you should study this...

Reflect back on... MARY J BLIGE "I Am" Music Video

Hello everyone, usually I post all things fashion, but once in a while I will reflect back on current/circulating music videos or past music videos that speak on a positive note and image, because that's what I'm about. Also, there may be a video in which I like the clothes that are worn by the artist.

Speaking of Mary J. Blige (this is one of the few people who can "sang"), I sense a trend in women doing "BIG HAIR" or updos in which hair is piled on top of the head in a very fashionable and regal manner. Color: not just blonde but all colors' looks better in dark brown or black. SEE MARY J. BLIGE'S MUSIC VIDEO:

Note: Click on video to see it on YouTube..

First Lady Michelle Obama in Stunning Dress

Michelle Obama is indeed a woman of style. She rarely disappoints as she makes other women copy her style. Her style is often describes as like to Jackie O and is very regal and looks effortless.

She was seen at the Kennedy Center, where Oprah, Steven Tyler, and other high-profile celebrities attended an honors ceremony. Do you like her dress??

More to come... In Rick Owens Coat (Not For Everyone..)

Hello everyone, I took a little hiatus. I have been posting EVERY SINGLE DAY but I skipped out just one day because I had so much to do, including a fashion show in metro Detroit that I participated in. The show went VERY WELL. I modeled a very nice denim suit (jeans and jacket) with a "dark orange" shirt and brown crocodile boots. Then the next time I came out, I wore a mink-and-lamb coat valued at more than $7,000. So nice... I'll post pictures soon.

Anyway, the picture of above shows his I guess trademark haircut and he's wearing a Rick Owens coat. The fit is... interesting. The front is not bad, but the sides don't seem to fit too well; it makes him look fat...or is he really "wide?" It's like a wrap-around coat but still... Do you like it?
