This is supposed to be a NIGHTCAP even though this post may be read in daylight.
Quick-to-stardom, young supermodel CHANEL IMAN was walking the catwalk for Victoria's Secret Lingerie Show 2011. She showed all her colors (including interesting neon-lit wings)... and her assets, too. Well of course her STIFF TUTU wasn't going to cover everything.
I think this is my first Madonna blog post. I don't really follow Madonna but her pics from the upcoming Dec. 2011/ Jan. 2012 issue of HARPER'S BAZAAR stuck out to me.
I just find it exceedingly great when a woman keeps her youth and owns it. So attractive and sexy.
Check out some more Madonna pictures; I like the one above because it looks like it's strips of images placed together to give that optical illusion, while at the same time Madonna's youthful 53-YEAR-OLD face and soft locks is unfettered.
Photographer: Tom Munro
Actress: Andrea Riseborough
Director: Madonna (she is directing a movie)
The whole ambiance of the above picture is classic, still, tells a story, has a seemingly rich history, and speaks an unspoken language of fashion. I can't help but to be drawn to it.
Rihanna has created a new Facebook album entitled 'BALL SO HARD VACA PICS' or something like that. It's a collection of her vacation pictures with her friends. She has vacationed in Italy, Brazil, and off the coast of Southern France.
Here on THE ONLY JAIDEN, this is my FIRST ISSUE celebrating my ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY of doing this blog, so it's quite a 'self-honor' to place this beautiful young woman here to kick off the ONE-YEAR CELEBRATION!
I encourage you to not just gawk at Rihanna herself but to look at her fashion choices (because you ladies could get an idea of what to wear if you're going to vacation this holiday season), as well as admiring the background scenery.
Thanks for joining me! ONE YEAR! WOW, TIME FLIES!!
(Sidenote: I'm thinking that probably every girl wishes they were in Melissa's (Rihanna's BFF) shoes...)

LaLa Vasquez-Anthony, Nicki Minaj, and Beyonce Attended Victoria's Secret Fashion Show In Their Own Style
Check out LaLa Vasquez-Anthony, Nicki Minaj, and Beyonce at the highly-anticipated VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW, the same show where a $2.5 MILLION BRA was debuted.
Each of these beautiful ladies had their own kind of style. Take for instance LaLa (above), wore this attractive ensemble consisting of an orange silk top with pink piping, and it was paired with the leg-baring pink skirt with orange piping. The 'bright' outfit was executed very well with subtleties: LaLa's black updo and nude Christian Louboutin heels.
I don't have much to say about these two legends, Nicki Minaj and Beyonce, because we already know who they are and what they do. Seeing this above picture, it would be really interesting to see if they ever collaborate. OPPOSITES ATTRACT, MAYBE?? It would mean comparing Nicki's 'Pink Friday' and Beyonce's '4' albums.
Nicki is a walking rainbow with a pink wig, orange bodice, stripes, splotches, shiny stuff, while Beyonce... a very pregnant Beyonce, appears to be the angel flying over it all. Ain't that nice?

Can a woman achieve THIS... in her mid-40s??!!
Check out American Idol judge, business conglomerate beauty Jennifer Lopez, or affectionately known as J-LO. Isn't she gorgeous and beyond aging gracefully? The hip-hugging pearlish gold outfit was a STUNNER and BANGER, even more so with the matching shoes. Perfect for a night out to capture attention.
Ladies, wear your evening gown with pride, exhibit good posture, and just be the lady of the room... at least until you get a little privacy with your 'boo.'
Updates coming on the make of the dress...
Look at all the pretty colors!! *In child voice*
Just Big Sean and Nicki Minaj only is pure art! (Note, if you're reading this, I do not condone music videos or the message it gives... and then place it on my blog. It takes quite a bit of decisive thinking about what music video to display as ART.)
Big Sean and Nicki Minaj's latest collabo, 'DANCE (A**)' is a song dedicating BOOTYS all over the world-- I'm not going to talk about bootys but rather the art that went into making the video.

Heavy D: 1967-2011
Dwight Arrington Myers, better known as Heavy D, an influential rapper of the 1990s, has died suddenly today (November 8) after being found going in and out of consciousness, later passed away at the hospital.
Wow, gone so quick, at the age of 44. Now, I don't know about his status of religion, but it's really important to be certain of WHERE YOU'RE GOING after you leave this earth, 'CUZ YOU NEVER KNOW. It's really important to know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. I'm not shoving this down your throat; I'm just saying.
It's better to live as if Jesus is in your life and die finding out that He doesn't exist instead of not living for Him and then dying and finding out He DOES exist.
That's why Jesus made this paraphrased prayer so simple, like an easy ticket to Heaven:
'Dear Father God, I'm choosing to get to know more about you today. I believe Jesus died on the cross for my sins, was buried, is now alive in Heaven, and is soon to come again. Forgive me for my sins. I thank you that I am in RE-BIRTH, I'm born again! Amen!!'
DAAANG!!! How simple is THAT??
But R.I.P. Heavy D!!!

Well, I visited one of my favorite website for FASHION FAUX-PAS pics, Media Takeout, and found Raven-Symone photo'ed cruising down a city street in what could pass for a GRANDMA OUTFIT!
I know that printed dresses are making a comeback, but THIS? I don't even know WHERE Raven bought this thing from. So... this comes dangerously close to being in my FASH, CRASH, AND BURN category but doesn't fall in there.
The main reason being is because Raven has two pieces that are KILLER! -- Lovin' em!!! -- and those items are her sexy purple stilettos and pastel multi-colored Louis Vuitton handbag.

I like striped pajamas LOL.
Just saying... especially after seeing them on Rihanna. By the way, she's dressed down and revealing her tracklist for upcoming 'Talk That Talk' album (November 21st). 'We Found Love' is Rihanna's eleventh I usually don't announce anything other than fashion on my blog, but Rihanna is my guilty pleasure as much as many of you like ROCKY ROAD ICE CREAM!
