The only thing that's nice about Kelly's look is her skin tone and bangs.
She looks like a human cow (no pun intended) wearing oversized Christian Louboutin heels.
I'm digging Miami Heat's DWYANE WADE's Versace suit top to bottom, but it comes to a screeching halt with the rather CHUNKY Air Jordans. Dwyane should probably try sleeker Supras, Vans, or even military boots to play down the suit well.
Do not wear chunky sneakers with a suit. Remember SLEEK SNEAKS.

I don't know which one is Nicole Richie's daughter (if you would be so kind to point her out for me... I'm guessing the one on the left) but Nicole was spotted taking her daughter Harlow and her friend to a ballet lesson in a great fall style. See, no matter what climate you're living in, it's very important to know your colors so that you won't be OUT-OF-PLACE.
For example, YELLOW and SEAFOAM GREEN will STILL be out of place in November and December, even if the temp outside is 75 degrees. There's a TIME and PLACE for COLOR.
Anyway, let's focus on Nicole Richie's sweater; it's by Isabel Marant Mati for $355. I like how the sweater is red on the bottom and separates the pants and the top half of the sweater, which is black also. Round oversized sunglasses with Nicole's bangs laid across them is a nice touch, as well.
GOOD for you, Nicole....

Women, don't you ever think about trying THIS.
I'm sure Nicki Minaj was just doing this for the music video she was in (to imitate Lil' Wayne), and I hope she changes it soon! Sure, we've all come to know the COTTON CANDY HAIR, but the blonde dreadlocks that are tinged with pink...
MMM.... no. Looks like a '90s MTV throwback. Just for the video, Nicki!

Remember COOLIO from back in the day, the dude with the crazy braids?
He did not make my FASH, CRASH, AND BURN #fail list because of his braids. Actually he made the list because of his EXECUTION of his braids. He has about 7 braids on either side of his head, with a big bald patch in the middle, and that bald patch is stamped with a TATTOO! Doesn't Coolio know he'll look 10,000 times better BALD? *Sigh*...
I'm just done. FAIL. FAIL. FAIL!
I've seen Kanye's backpack before...
And it's so ILL (extra, extra nice) that I thought I'd post it again! Kanye was seen recently leaving the studio in all-black attire, Nike Air Yeezy sneakers, and this $12,000 Gucci Python backpack.
Guys, if you had RACKS on RACKS of money, would you try to buy this??
In my opinion, if (and WHEN) I have racks of money, $12,000 would buy me a couple luxury duffel bags and backpacks, 10 sneakers, plenty of clothes from H&M and Urban Outfitters, AND a plane ticket somewhere. YOU FEEL ME??!!
Oh, by the way, nice sweater and necklace...

Beyonce Baby Bump Completely Hidden By Halloween Costume + Chris Brown's Obscene Alien Costume #FAIL
Well, everyone was out wearing costumes for Halloween. And while I've never been the kind to wear costumes and participate in the festivities, I just loved (and still love) to check out the wackiest and coolest Halloween costumes.
Well, to start... check out Beyonce's BUMBLEBEE costume. It manages to COMPLETELY HIDE HER BABY BUMP! The heels she wore (I believe by Giuseppe Zanotti) were a nice touch with the costume.
... And CHRIS BROWN, on the other hand... wore this obscene Halloween costume... an ALIEN... with a...A.... FRONTAL PROBE. I don't usually post things like this but just for the sake of costumes and this post being posted at a time where kids are going to bed, here is the...
CHRIS BROWN ALIEN COSTUME #FAIL (AND LOOK AWAY COSTUME)

Those responsible for this AWESOME photo shoot of LaLa Vasquez-Anthony:
Photographer: Robert Ector
Wardrobe: Leah Taylor
Makeup: Latasha Wright
Hair: Rikya Taylor
I have done posts of LaLa before, but this one stuck out to me very well because there are so many great pieces incorporated into it, blending high fashion and sexiness with the classic times of Marilyn Monroe and women of that era.
Now I know the above right pic doesn't quite go back to the classic times, but this'll sure stick to my mind, in the JAIDEN CLASSICS portion of my brain.
Fall colors are very prominent in LaLa's photo shoot, and the materials used complement each other very well, and fits the season where coats, jackets, and gloves are concerned (for those of you in warmer climates, this still applies you...) The Christian Louboutin python pumps and suede boots are a nice touch and enhance LaLa's entire look even more!
Ladies, want an affordable alternative to LaLa's costly look? There's plenty of stores around you, but my personal favorites for you lovely ladies are Macy's, Target, H&M, Forever 21, and Aldo and Steve Madden for shoes.

Usher tweeted a pic that showed he cut off all his facial hair recently. Now, i don't know what you ladies have to say about this, but from a guy's point of view, I would say JUST GROW A LITTLE OF IT BACK Usher, if you trying to go for a clean look.
I.E. Having just a mustache, or trimmed chin hair, qualifies as CLEAN-CUT.
But this is a lil' much. The 'AFTER' pic of Usher makes him look like a young Morgan Freeman!!!

Bringing you more men's fashion, this time directly from the GQ's Gentleman's Ball.
Who wore it best, Brad Goreski or Ashton Kutcher?
Comment, comment, comment either on here, on Facebook, or Twitter.
FASHIONISTA-wise, Brad Goreski is the best dresser with his light gray chalk pinstriped blazer, dark gray plaid pants, and very pointy gray wingtips matching the blazer. Noticeable accessory is the Tom Ford glasses.
ALL-AROUND American fashion goes to Ashton Kutcher, and he is also my pick because this is a comfortable look a lot of guys would be willing to go for. Just get rid of the BEANIE, and then Ashton's look will be perfect. I like the weathered brown shoes because it shows long term ess and sophisication as compared to brand-new shoes which may look like one is JUST WEARING IT FOR THE EVENT.
