'Fashionable' Beauties of the Weekend: Part 2 (Taraji P. Henson Photo Shoot)

Here's another beauty of the weekend: TARAJI P. HENSON.

I like the grittiness and glamour collision of the photo shoot. It speaks about Taraji's personality. She's claimed to be a down-to-earth girl, but at the same time likes the GIRLY things in life.

See an excerpt from Necole B***hie:

“I’m just Taraji from the block. I don’t travel with ridiculous security and a ton of unnecessary people.”
“I think people relate to me because I’m real. What you see is what you get. I am always the same person. Anyone who ever says that I’m conceited or self-absorbed honestly doesn’t know anything about me. If you follow my Twitter timeline, you will see that I really am one of the nicest, most down-to-earth people you will ever meet.”

Rihanna's $10,500 BALMAIN LEATHER JACKET, in London

As Rihanna continues her UK tour, her cold weather clothing choices starkly reminds me of her 2009 'Rated R', post- Chris Brown days. Remember when she came out so hard-nosed, edgy, vicious-looking with her fashion? I can see it seeping out of her now.

Check out the dark lipstick, BAAAAD shades, and the striking $10,500 BALMAIN jacket. BALMAIN is usually known for its astronomical pricing but super-premium materials. Rihanna's jacket is 100% leather and the fur comes from an entire raccoon hide.

I guess she's ballin', $29 MILLION WOULD BUY HER THAT, I GUESS...

Lady GaGa Rocks Pink 'N' Purple In NYC... Like Only GaGa Can...

Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga Out in NYC

In a world that's full of craziness and with pockets of simplicity, the ever-evolving Lady GaGa embodies both adjectives (or is it a NOUN? It's been a while since English 101). The craziness part is stepping out of a Ford Expedition SUV wearing a black/pink printed dress paired with leather gloves and a rice paddy style hat. The scarf that swathes GaGa's head is a nice lil' touch...

...and so is the NEON BLUE lipstick.

The simplicity factor, regardless of its electric color tone, is the purple Christian Louboutin Daffodil platform heels. I just think it's a STRONG, HOTT, ELECTRIC STATEMENT that only a few women can pull off.

Can you step up to the place and DARE, ladies?

Also check out Lady GaGa wearing BLACK HAIR, literally. More to come on this wackiness...

The Colorful Nicki Minaj Stepping Out Her New 2012 Bentley...

That's a big contrast between the colorful Nicki Minaj with her half-blue/part-blonde wig, rainbow-and-Harajaku inspired outfit, and her somewhat demure, understated 2012 Bentley Continental GT.

Check it out.. also check out other NICKI pictures as she attended the 2011 American Music Awards press conference (for 2012 AMAs) ...

Art: Beyonce Channels Audrey Hepburn In 'Countdown' Pic Still

"Funny Face": A gamine Audrey Hepburn dons Beatnik black in the West Village in the 1957 Fred Astaire musical. From the bunched white socks and loafers to the fancy footwork, Beyonce kicks off "Countdown" by nailing the silver-screen queen's iconic look — and dusts off some the Bebop moves!

BEYONCE is doing good with all this, BABY BUMP and all. Just wanted to bring you an ART picture of Beyonce in a head-to-head with Audrey Hepburn...

Anyone Want $2,500 Christian Louboutin Sneakers?

I believe that this colorway is more for women than men, even though Christian Louboutin sneakers are made to be UNISEX. These Christian Louboutin Louis Strass Crystal sneakers are valued at $2,500 because of the high-end purple velvet fabric around the sneaker and the rainbow-colored crystals are authentic SWAROVSKI crystals.

It's nice when WORN RIGHT, but I'm definitely not and don't encourage anyone to buy these.

Ladies, LIKE THESE??

Get a similar pair at the following stores:

... Or your local (inexpensive) shoe boutique

Art: RIHANNA's 'Talk That Talk' Album Cover Released

This is a different look from all of the album covers Rihanna has released, because if you notice, all of the album colors are dark in tone, wheras this is BRIGHT and more of an accumulation of all the previous album covers. The look of the album cover also has a lot of character in it.

The red lipstick is a carry-over from the 'LOUD' album.
'Talk That Talk' is displayed like a tattoo on Ri's wrist.
The animal print collared shirt is a fashion throwback.
The facial expression proves more seductive and more personal.
The famed 'R' is a re-invention of the 'Rated-R' era.

ART. Gotta love it.

Boxer/Model Dudley O' Shaughnessy (Rihanna's Guy In 'We Found Love')

In case you don't know who this is, he is model/boxer Dudley O' Shaughnessy who plays Rihanna's love interest in her 'We Found Love' music video.

I'm not posting this to exaggerate any rumors, but to basically show Dudley's model portfolio.
Check it out below:

Pretty cool, huh? *Givin' Dudley some dap*

I've got some similar photos, especially that water shot. See my folio at:

Fash, Crash, and Burn: SERENA's... Everything

Well. SERENA WILLIAMS absolutely crossed the line and threshold steeping out with a floral print dress and winter boots. JUST. NO.

Fash, Crash, and Burn: Diddy's Jeans... It's Not For You, Bro...

Not because Media Takeout said this (and they don't really know EVERYTHING), but by looking at the pics, Diddy needs to give up the jeans. They don't look good on him (and Michael Jordan's are definitely worse).

Man... you would think that these two guys would WEAR THEIR OWN LABELS because their labels actually look nice...

Shoe of the Day: DRIES VAN NOTEN Leather Cap Toe

Bearing a resemblance to LANVIN, label DRIES VAN NOTEN has brought some actually very good-looking men's shoes to the market. It's snazzy and classy at the same time. Lovin' it!!!

It can be had for $612 (Yeah, I know, pretty steep...) and comes in blue fabric colorway.
