Either way, NICKI MINAJ is really looking HOTT when she's not so much into her VERY VIBRANT VIBE. Check out her GUCCI purse, which is a really popular model called the Jockey Hobo, for about $1,400. I see a few women with these, 7 out of 10 which are probably KNOCK-OFFS *LoL*, but still nice, nonetheless...
But I have an illusion here in deciding whether the purse is HUGE or Nicki is really small...
Ladies, pair this up with anything that includes denim jeans, and you are good to go!!
Now I'm not one to talk about this kind of music that Birdman makes, just fashion, but I do have to call out something RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW.
People have been speculating whether Cash Money CEO Birdman had purchased an $8M Maybach Exelero.* And guess what.... HE DID... he tweeted that he did:
“8million 0n a whip all red.blievetht.custom made.ymcmb.”
This just made me plain fall out. WHY?? In the name of beneficial non-profits needing funding, in the name of hunger worldwide, WHYYYYY??? There's nothing wrong with having maybe an $8 MILLION MANSION if someone has plenty of money to spare or maybe an $8 MILLION building to do good deeds for people, but an $8 MILLION supercar just to satisfy an ego? Do you know how many self-esteems/egos $8 MILLION can boost up with receiving a trunk full of free groceries or clothes??
Birdman, CASH MONEY RECORDS... Stop this FOOLERY!!!
*The Maybach Exelero has a ridiculous price of $8 MILLION. The only perk to the price is that Maybach will build this car ONLY if you request it to be built; a serious down payment is needed first, and you have full control on all color/texture/performance options of the car, included in the price tag.
MAAAN, I can go to the CUSTOM SHOP for that!!

This is a look I can give TWO THUMBS UP. Because before... Solange was coming off as a little strange and set far apart from her superstar sister, Beyonce.
Again, this look works!!
Solange before... it's an OK look...
Of course I was not at WESTMINSTER ABBEY to take these pictures. Remember that my blog THE ONLY JAIDEN is comprised of images that captivate my eyes, and I simply want to share with you my interests. So...
Check out the guests who were at the Royal Wedding of Prince William and new wife Kate Middleton:
|Prince Albert of Monaco and Britain Prime Minister David Cameron -- wives are a STUNNER!!|
Socialite Tara Palmer and Princess Beatrice and Eugenie -- They doin' the HAT GAAMMME!!!
The Parents -- Carol (Kate's momma) and Prince Charles and Camille (Camille... Oyy.....Princess Di was better.)
More photos to come!!!

I'm just taking a look back at Beyonce's styles in the notorious music video 'Single Ladies' and the sassy bad girl video "DIVA." it's hard to believe that these are considered OLD music videos, yet the strengths of these videos make it appear so fresh and recent.
Some of Beyonce's looks, especially the swimsuit in 'Single Ladies', can definitely rock out at the beach, while the rest of the looks in 'DIVA' can easily incorporate itself into a high-powered photo shoot (should you ladies ever decide to do one).
Take a look at the videos and more screen shots:
Even though this is from 2009, this kind of look will still SCORCH and SMOLDER in 2011...
THE ONLY JAIDEN applauds the power of this look that can still turn heads after 2 years. An effect like that is considered CLASSIC.

Shopping = Beautiful.
Ellen Pompeo from Grey's Anatomy was spotted shopping at LANVIN... I wanna know what she got in that bag :-) I "Heart" LANVIN.
Also Rihanna was looking extra flirty in her blue jean get-up paired with nude pumps and bright red hair tamed with a bow. Updates coming soon..

A whole lotta people are switching it up these days.
I guess change is eminent because everyone wants to be different or do something different. Rihanna changed her hair to RED, Chris Brown dyed his hair BLONDE (it's back to black now), Cassie now has BOTH SIDES of her head shaved, and WIllow Smith.... she's got everything going on top of her head.
So check out Shia LaBeouf's new slick-back hairstyle with both sides of his head close-cropped. It is unclear whether this hairstyle will be for the upcoming TRANSFORMERS 3 movie, but I will say this... it's a nice, rocker look for Shia.

New York Knicks B-Baller Carmelo Anthony was spotted at the TIME 100 Gala Dinner For the 100 Most Influential People in the World, which included people like Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama, Bruno Mars, and more.
Carmelo looked very dapper in his black suit, deep blue tux shirt with matching kerchief, and contrasting plaid bowtie; the glasses were a nice touch, too. LaLa accompanied him very well in an understating elegant black dress done right with a vintage belt and red clutch purse (BLACK and RED go very well together).
Ya like? Cuz I like...

Angela Simmons was spotted out leaving her hotel, wearing this beautiful, fun, and flirty striped dress, and golden flats in tone with her accessories (Chanel bag and GREY ANT sunglasses are a nice touch as well...)
Great legs, great style, great NON-UPPITY attitude...
Rihanna and Beyonce in GREY ANT sunglasses....

Glee Star Naya Rivera bared skin while out in New York. She was filming for the FOX hit show "GLEE' and while I'm not sure if what she's wearing is for the filming but she looked quite the HOTT one wearing daisy dukes and a bare midriff shirt.
Hmm... must be warm in the BIG APPLE today.
Ladies, would you wear this look better than Naya?
Did you just read my post title? Enough said.
People are so used to sticking with weather traditions that boots cannot be worn in the spring or summer, with the exception of rain boots. Of course, one cannot wear big chunky UGGS or other winter boots in the summer, you can look plain CRAZY. But wearing canvas boots or part canvas/part leather like PHARRELL WILLIAMS of N.E.R.D. did, you cannot go wrong.
I know I cannot go wrong if I pair up some canvas boots with my Dickies shorts or cargo shorts and a white or black tee. TRY IT GUYS!!!

It's nice to see something fun, influential, and wildly captivating.
Beyonce released, per first lady MICHELLE OBAMA, her music video 'Move Your Body' as a video campaign to encourage kids who are overweight to lose weight in a fun manner. In the video are a variety of dances, especially popular ones like the 'DOUGIE' and the 'CAT DADDY.'
And on the STYLE SIDE, Beyonce and the kids looked great in their urban clothes, especially QUEEN BEY in her comical neon green legwarmers..
Here's what Beyonce had to say:
“I am excited to be part of this effort that addresses a public health crisis,” stated Beyoncé. “First Lady Michelle Obama deserves credit for tackling this issue directly, and I applaud the NAB Education Foundation for trying to make a positive difference in the lives of our schoolchildren.”
We're about to have some skinny, good-looking kids... and we just might get the DANCING BUG this summer!!!

What a HOTT family.
The Smith family, more specifically Jaden Smith, Willow Smith, and Jada Pinkett Smith, are looking HOTT, HOTT, HOTT. This is a FAMILY LOOKBOOK. Yes, Yes, Bravo, Bravissimo!!
These three excellent attention grabbers were at the White House this past Easter Sunday for an event. Jaden Smith wore-- what caught my eyes-- was the COMME DES GARCON Heart Print Tee that stuck out of his cool black cardigan (also by Comme Des Garcon), for $109.
Willow Smith looked her flamboyant self, yet like a 'fun and classy girl' in her knit oufit and 'candy-looking' lime-green sneakers.
And JADA... MY MY MY... seems to get better with age! Check out her Lanvin ankle-wrap wedges for $1,120...
These LANVINs -- The star of the show! Sexy sexy sexy.... :-)
KIM KARDASHIAN can be recognized as a Fashionista (few people earn the status of Style Icon) because of how she incorporates her outfits well and how it suits her body well... even if she's wearing SPANX *LoL--- yeah she really was*.
But check out Kim's looks that caught my eyes, the eyes of FASHION, the eyes that rule and judge what will be a hott trend, and what will be... just UGH:
Yes, I know it's probably a regular look, like *BLANK STARE* but in my eyes, it's a cool, safe look for the ladies, with the photo on the right being for either work or a business lunch (or just lookin' sexy and nowhere to go) and the one on the left can be a real HOTT play on a pantsuit.
Whaddaya think? I'm a little bored so I couldn't think 100% on this one... so if you're not feeling or 'fancy'-ing this KIM post, check out some better ones i have; just go to the "search" toolbar...

Aww... would you look at that?
It's so nice to feel the LOVE in the air.... SPRINGTIME IN PARIS. Check out Beyonce (in a much better outfit) going on a stroll with her hubby Jay-Z. They dressed very casual, and even though Beyonce's nude Louboutins were far from that, her look came together flawlessly. This is very IN for Spring/ Summer 2011.
Big THUMBS UP to Bey. And how humble can Jay-Z be when he is spotted off-screen/stage? In these photos, he doesn't even look like he's worth north of $400 MILLION..... but he is.
Update: Jay-Z is wearing a BALMAIN hoodie for roughly $950, and Beyonce's jacket is by Isabel Marant for approximately $2,400!

Honestly, a lot of people wouldn't look good in this hairstyle. It's only for the exceptional beauties, the ones with beautiful bone structure, like Rihanna, a local model I know, and now Cassie!
If you know Cassie, then you know that she's the on-again and off-again girlfriend (per se) of Diddy, and she was tabloid worthy 2 years ago when she shaved one side of her head. It was a little awkward for a while... BUT I'M FEELIN' THE NEW ONE! IT FINALLY HAS SOME SYMMETRY! :-)
The old one: Ehh... Borderline #No bueno.

Good morning, I have seen a lot of great outfits worn on Easter Sunday, and then there were some not-so-great outfits. Unfortunately, Beyonce's polka-dot dress found its way onto my 'FASH, CRASH, AND BURN' section.
Usually Beyonce's got her style game on lock, but it just wasn't happening with her Fall 2011 Marc Jacobs two-color polka dot dress (above). The dress was already ugly so I just try to give credit to QUEEN BEY for making the dress look a little better when she flaunted her curves. She was also wearing Christian Louboutin heels, which I definitely ain't mad at...
Update: Well... I guess the dress is GROWING ON ME a little bit...

|LaLa with Spike Lee|
I'm thinking that LaLa's look is BORDERLINE.
There are a lot of great pieces; they just aren't executed together properly. LaLa's blazer was by 3.1 Philip Lim for $695, A Pleasure Doing Business bustier (that's a real hott JAIDEN's PICK) that can be incorporated into a summer LOOKBOOK, and the SHOW-STEALER: LaLa's Nicholas Kirkwood Lace-Up Sandals for nearly $1,200!
Her look could have been done right if she kept the shoes, but wore an off-white 3.1 Philip Lim blazer to go with the bustier, and some wax black jeans to separate the whites on top and bottom.
Is my suggestion WAYYYY BETTER???
