Note: The following pics do not necessarily reflect the views of The Only Jaiden; this is STRICTLY from a 'fashion' perspective.

I have promo pics for you that represent 'THE JAIDEN BRAND.' That brand represents a select group of people WORLDWIDE who believe that they have an 'alter ego,' an ego to where they can escape to a deeper state of mind where they can be worth more than they think they are, they are more adventurous, daring, care-free, giving, out-of-box, A COMPLETE 180 from their 'natural self.'
Being in this state of mind is statistically proven to heighten senses and allows one to do have greater human capabilities.
I imagine a world where I am 'JAIDEN,' a international superhero who helps people in need, inspires and uplifts, can tackle any obstacle, and correct fashion errors all while looking VERY STYLISH -- the only thing that I don't do as a fashion superhero is that I don't wear a superhero suit *LoL*
Rihanna's perfume (Reb'l Fleur) commercial is one of the most interesting commercials that I've seen in a long time. This 2-minute long commercial has 2 parts to it: GOOD and BAD. One minute of the commercial shows the whimsical part of Rihanna heading toward the deep and dark version of herself..
...then the COOL thing...
The last part of the commercial is the video playing backwards, going from deep and dark to whimsical. The video was made in such a way that there are virtually no known telltales of where Rihanna started off FIRST, the "whimsical" or the "deep and dark." Also, the musical notes play THE SAME WAY BACKWARDS AS IT DOES FORWARD. Whoa. Check it out.

Well, it's out, you little crazy "GAGA lovers" *LoL* Lady GaGa released her "Born This Way" single today, plastering the single cover (above) all across the world. Label boss AKON is sure making millions from this worldwide phenomen-woman and KRRRRAZY fashionista--ahem, not a fashionista--- well, she's in a class all by herself.
And that's why I like her. One word: UNIQUE.
She also released her latest photo shoot with VOGUE recently. It really shows off GaGa's "maturity" in what she does. When I look at this... Lady GaGa and Nicki Minaj go HAND-IN-HAND.
More pics of LADY GAGA Vogue Photo Shoot will be added..
First Lady Michelle Obama *SMH- in a good way* really puts a lot of women to shame just personally letting them know that even though she sits on top of 308 MILLION PEOPLE, there's no need to purchase an uber-expensive dress. Man, she has a style all her own that a lot of women just can't seem to percept.
MICHELLE OBAMA's dress is by H&M for just $35, done right with yellow kitten heels. She talked about her dress in an interview and also conversed about how many women can pull off a look for cheap. I mean if you haven't listened to Michelle, you gotta listen now. Take a lesson from a woman whose husband runs not just a "million-dollar company" but an entire nation.
Check out the dress at H&M; this isn't the first time Obama has rocked H&M.

MediaTakeout is known for their crazy news and rumors that most often turn out to be shockingly true, but I can have crazy news of my own. ANGELA SIMMONS dyed her hair bright blonde a few weeks ago, and it was an EPIC NO-NO. Somehow and somewhere on the world wide web, she saw what I (and other people, especially me) said about her hair, and now she toned it down.
It's not her BEST look, but it's a WHOLE LOTTA BETTER than the all-blonde thing. Fist bump to Angela!
One of Angela's best looks from 2010.

I don't usually do posts on music (even though I frequently post on people OF MUSIC who are fashionable) but I just thought I'd share the interesting styles displayed in Nicki Minaj's music videos. Almost all the videos are a portrayal of Nicki's mind, the adventures, the colors, the landscaping, the culture, everything.
It's pure ART. Take a look...
This is a good look!! ZAC EFRON is really "down the street and around the corner" from High School Musical looks. This 23-year-old actor is coming into his own cool style. Spotted most recently in the above picture at LAX after returning from New York City, this is CERTAINLY a cool way to travel, or even be out with friends.
*FIST BUMP* To Zac.
Ain't it nice to just chill or go places in the most relaxing clothes and not have a care in the world? If you're thinking sweats and a T-shirt with a hole in it, you need to get a 'JAIDEN' slap*.
YOU CANNOT DO THAT!!! If you're reading this, it's okay to be comfortable but at the same time, look good and presentable; you'll never know who you'll run into. In worst case scenario, it's your ex or your nemesis from high school!!!
Check out Nicole Richie's example, ladies (above pic and below).
Tights, sexy and comfy cross-trainers, tunic or fitted sweatshirt (preferably designer and durable for everyday wear), oversized sunglasses to cover "non-makeup" go A LONG WAY. Trust me, I'm a guy looking at a gal.

AWW... isn't that nice? You don't see too much of that, family that is, in the entertainment world. These two talented siblings of Smithville, Jaden and Willow Smith, were spotted at the Paramount Pictures 'Never Say Never' Justin Bieber movie. They were looking nice.
Willow especially looked cute in her beige outfit and expensive-looking platforms. Such a nice change-up from the WILD look. It doesn't hurt to come down from that every once in a while..
This is a great photo shoot of Trey Songz. As an aspiring model, I know I can rock out a similar photo shoot like this. I got the look, the clothes, the swag, the attitude. Check out pics of Trey Songz (Melanie Fiona is in it) in the RocaWear Spring/Summer 2011 photo shoot.
...And yours truly, The Only Jaiden, can do this too... check my pics below...
....Hmm... A lil' some-some, a preview for the near future... *LoL*
Gotta hand it to her. REALLY. Even the haters too have to admit that Kim is on her fashion game. It's undeniable in front of my eyes. From the interesting print dress she wore when she was kicked off the stage by "not dancing to the beat," to her look above, in NYC. PRINCE just had to do it. After all, he is a DIVO and his stage is his stage.
In the pic above, Kardashian wore a Burberry Prorsum studded sleeve twill trench coat for nearly $4,500. She paired it up with equally extravagant and eye-catching "Maggie" Louboutins for $895.
Like the look? I do. I know what I'm talking about and know what looks good on a woman.

Halle Berry has a lot to talk about in EBONY Magazine's March 2011 issue. She talks about her daughter Nahla being "black," her career, how she keeps that GORGEOUS body up, and more!! See her INTERVIEW EXCERPTS from EBONY Magazine:
“I feel like she’s black. I’m black and I’m her mother and I believe in the one-drop theory. I’m not going to put a label on it. I had to decide for myself and that’s what she’s going to have to decide – how she identifies herself in the world. And I think, largely, that will be based on how the world identifies her. That’s how I identified myself. But I feel like she’s black.”
On dating outside her race
“Well, first thing I want to say is that I’m very connected to my community and I want black people to know that I haven’t abandoned them because I’ve had a child with a man outside of my race and I’m dating someone now outside of my race who is Spanish and French. I have never been more clear about who I am as a black woman. The people I have dated sort of hold up a mirror to me and help me realize more of who I really am.”
Man, she said it. And it's sure perfect words for Black History Month *LoL*
And boyyyy is she ONE SEXY... Forgive me, Lord...
Halle, put them cherries down and stop playin' with me...

2011 is the 35th year observance of "Black History Month," hence the "XXXV." I know I'm black (of course, DUHH), but this is TOO 'BLACK' for my taste.
TALK ABOUT A TRANSFORMATION. Jennifer Hudson is shutting the game down with major news surrounding her dramatic weight loss and the whirlwind success of her career.
Hudson released the official picture for her album (above), titled "I Remember Me" and the title truly goes hand-in-hand with her career, her tragic past involving the murder of three of her family members, and her strong and swift comeback with weight loss, endorsements, and her promising future.
Hudson also announced that she will be making her worldwide TV appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" singing her single, "Where You At."
Looks like Bieber may be taken. He was spotted in Santa Monica Pier with Selena Gomez looking stylish in a shawl collar sweater, wax denim jeans, and Billionaire Boys Club "Nothing" sneakers for $155.
Rarely in Detroit do you see a home that's for $2.5 million. Sure, there is an extraordinary line of great architectural buildings all around Detroit that were designed by Albert Kahn and other designers, and even down to the grand homes of the Boston-Edison District, a venerable comparison to Birmingham, Michigan in looks and price.
For example, a 5-bedroom, 4.5 bathroom, 6,000 sq. ft home in the Boston-Edison district may run for $450,000 or more, depending on the amenities and build of the home. Whereas a similar home in a Birmingham, Michigan neighborhood may easily nick the $2 MILLION range.
But the home in the picture is not from any of these neighborhoods. It is in Detroit, but located in the ruins of Brush Park (near Comerica Park and Ford Field, home of Super Bowl XL). If you don't know, Brush Park was considered the Beverly Hills of Detroit in the early 1900s with haberdasheries, bakeries, fine hotels, and great nightlife and entertainment.
This home that was remodeled is so large for such a low cost of $2.5 MILLION. I know that isn't cheap, but elsewhere.... think $10 MILLION OR ABOVE. Here are the stats:
-Formerly a low-rent boarding house
-Bought and remodeled to a Victorian mansion beginning 1986
-11,000 sq. ft., 10 bedrooms, 11.5 bathrooms, 135 YEARS OLD.
-14-foot ceilings, East and West kitchens
Personally, I do hope that someone wealthy will take notice in this wonderful home. It has a lot of potential to be anything: An exclusive hotel, an office or headquarters, a party place, or whatever strikes the imagaination. but I would really like to see an out-of-the-box, daring millionaire pick this home out of all the great homes in Michigan.

He may be a football player, but TERRELL OWENS is starting to have an eye for style. It was clearly seen in his recent season of his reality show. I'm watching... NFL BALLERS and all others, take note :-)
Owens is wearing Louis Vuitton "Cardiff" Scarf for $310. I'm not a scarf kind of guy, but I will rock this one out.
