Joshua Kissi of 'Street Etiquette' and his African Tribal Paint Shirt

According to Joshua Kissi of popular style blog STREET ETIQUETTE, African Tribal Paint shirts are cyclical, appearing on the runway every couple of years. But it's definitely showing up now. Check out what Joshua Kissi has to say:

If the wrist accouterments and tribal rings weren’t evidence enough, my Ghanaian heritage heavily influences my style. That influence is also evident with print shirts such as the one featured below. There’s a subtle distinction between traditional African fabric originating from the continent and the type manufactured out of inspiration. The latter may discourage some people, but it is still a catalyst in creating awareness of these history-rich prints and designs.

Ciara At Paris Fashion Week (Barbara Bui Fash Show)

Fashion Week is very important to stylists, designers, fashionistas, and the like. It takes place all over the world as fashion is celebrated. It's also a star-studded, global event, and speaking of that, check out artist/dancer Ciara in ALL-BLACK at the Barbara Bui Spring/Summer 2012 fash show in Paris.

I like the whole CATWOMAN vibe; very daring in a 'field of flowers.' And check out the long, blonde ponytail.

Beyonce & The Baby Bump Strolls Thru NYC

Just can't wait for JAYONCE to come into the world. Beyonce was spotted stepping out of a custom luxury conversion van to attend an undisclosed meeting. She looked so graceful in her sturdy-looking pumps (she's walking for TWO) and her plaid dress that has a subtle belt at the waist. The orange purse may or may not be from Hermes (I'll keep you posted).

BEY's look comes together quite nicely; she just looks so alluring for a pregnant woman. A theme song for her right here would be 'Halo'.

PICS Of Rihanna's 'We Found Love' Music Vid Bleached Denim Look

RIHANNA is usually known for her risque outfits and notable 'COUTURE' not 'CUSTOM MADE' get-ups like Lady GaGa and other artists. Not sure yet what label Rihanna's wearing on the set of her new music video ft. Calvin Harris, We Found Love, but it's quite nice.

Location: Belfast, Ireland

Rihanna is seen in an updo, bleached denim skirt and bra, ripped stockings, crazy platform shoes, and sitting then escaping from a muscle car, all reminiscent of the '60s. The look is also a lil' throwback to Rihanna's RATED R days. Can't wait to see the whole COMIC BOOK/OLD FASHIONED MOVIE concept of this video.

Update: Denim outfit is by Jeremy Scott.

Likin' the look. Different, Edgy, Original, Crazy, Cool!

Janet Jackson.... Illuminati....Really?? Janet Wears 'The Eye' To Conrad Murray Trial

As many of you know, the Dr. Conrad Murray trial started Tuesday, and had every news coverage there. Since I cover the fashion part, I must say how beautiful Janet Jackson looks with her all-black attire, sunglasses, and relaxed, pinned-up hair.

But one thing cameramen took notice of was the necklace Janet wore around her neck. It was a necklace with an EYE on it. It's usually known as an ILLUMINATI symbol. Now, I don't know what's going on with that and I don't want to judge what she's wearing it for but whoo... some folks really need to understand that ILLUMINATI MESS.

Car of the Day: 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera

Wow, check out this hott car. It's 2012, it's a Porsche... and it's RED.

The redesigned 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera has evolved over 48 years, becoming more and more sleeker and sophiscicated. Not to mention sporty, too.

Here's some excerpts and pics below from and Porsche press release mentioning this awesome car:

At 48, the Porsche 911 Carrera is younger than ever. The completely redesigned seventh-generation sports car icon is stepping into the limelight with its sleek and stretched silhouette, exciting contours and precisely designed features. Yet from every angle it is unmistakably a 911, holding true to the Porsche 911 Carrera ‘evolution, not revolution’ design philosophy...

To complement the modern exterior design, Porsche designers created an interior reminiscent of the Carrera GT. The driver is now even more closely integrated within the cockpit thanks to the rising center console and high-mounted shift lever or gear selector located close to the steering wheel. As with the exterior, classic Porsche elements abound inside. Present is the instrument cluster with five round gauges – one of them a high resolution multifunction screen, and of course the central tachometer and the ignition lock to the left of the steering wheel...

At the same time there are performance improvements in both models. The 911 Carrera S with PDK accelerates from 0 to 60 in 4.1 seconds. Using the Launch Control function of the optional Sport Chrono Package cuts that to 3.9 seconds. The 911 Carrera with PDK needs only 4.4 seconds to sprint from a standing start to 60 mph (4.2 seconds when using the optional Sport Chrono Package’s Launch Control function). Top-track speed for the 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera is 188 mph and 179 mph, respectively...

The first new 911 models will arrive in U.S. dealerships beginning in February of 2012. The new 911 Carrera Coupe will have a base MSRP of $82,100, while the 911 Carrera S Coupe’s base MSRP will be $96,400 (excluding destination). Both models will include substantial additional equipment when compared to the previous models...
