Just look. Stare all you want.
These are the new Christian Louboutin 'John-John' men's shoes with black patent leather tip, with satin and suede finish, and waxed laces. It could also pass for women's shoes. I imagine a woman with jet black hair...bangs... in a feminine tux, with these shoes on: BANGER!!
BOSS to the Nth power! Nicest design yet! This can be paired well with a dark-colored suit to even fitted denim jeans!

Believe It Or Not.. But Hit-Maker DAVID GUETTA Was Wearing $2,000+ Worth Of Clothes, But Execution Made It Look THRIFT-STOREish!!
I just HATE it when perfectly good (and expensive) items are worn like pure TRASH. Check out hit-maker DAVID GUETTA, responsible for collabos with Usher, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, and more artists, and his look above.
Does it look like David has on more than $2,000 worth of clothes?? But he does, ladies and gentlemen... he does.
David Guetta wore $1,200 BALMAIN jeans and Christian Louboutin Alfie flat sneakers for $995. Maybe up close and/or separately they would look nice, but here? With the scraggly hair and beard? Poor execution. UGH.
If David had pulled his hair back into a ponytail, wore a fitted black T-shirt, and gold aviator shades.... OHHHH WHAT A DIFFERENCE JUST A LIL' CHANGE MAKES!!!

This is WHOA on so many levels, considering that Pharrell's (N.E.R.D.) style is usually demure but makes a statement as well.
But this is a stand-out statement; Pharrell was spotted at Art Basel in Miami Beach, and I guess he wanted to show off the creative, artistic side, which is comprised of several different items: A black biker jacket, army green T-shirt, buffalo plaid shirt tied around the waist, cut-off jeans for shorts, and customized Timberlands.
He also wore a slightly different look that included a RED biker jacket.
I thought the entire look was CRAZY WEIRD, but still CRAZY to spark interest as Pharrell's style causes the viewer 's eyes to go up and down and to study the different items, items that can be singled out and worn in the viewer's own way...
'Cuz truth be told... this look ain't for everybody.

The 'Superbass' rapper NICKI MINAJ was spotted slimmer and trimmer at the 2011 Grammy Nominations 2011; the DONK is still there, though. She looked playful yet graceful in her turquoise bodiced dress, Versace stacked heels, and bubble gum pink wig.
This is A-OK in my Fashion book!
The GOTH look is when one is looking very rugged, down, and dirty. To me, dressing in that manner would be tough for me because I'm usually a positive, bright-thinking person (I express that through my clothing...)
Who loves BLACK at the same time. My wardrobe is full of black and dark-colored clothes, with specks of color in between.
So check out the goth look on Jeremy Hudson, Lady GaGa's dancer at 2011 Grammy Nominations concert, and Lady GaGa.
What a RELIEF.
I thought Serena Williams was headed downhill with a shoddy makeup artist and whoever was styling her. Maybe Serena got a new stylist... or her stylist finally came to grips on what would keep Serena from looking TOO MUCH LIKE A MAN (because she's already muscular).
She looks great in this red wrap evening dress, gold slingbacks with gold accessories. Keep it up!

Pretty and captivating, aren't they?
Of course, on my fashion blog I don't share music stats, but since I found this perfect picture (above) that I just had to match up, why not?
Both Rihanna and Mary J. Blige had debuted their album in the top 5 of Billboard's charts. Not only their music is hott but their fashion (above) too. Mary J loves her leopard and blonde hair while Rihanna... is a WHOLE NEW WORLD from her above look. See below:
Yup, that's Rihanna's new look as she shoots for the 'You Da One' music video, in London.
Here's what's described about her from Ace Showbiz:
The Barbados beauty ditches her dark-colored hair by rocking a blonde shoulder-length wig with bangs. She dons a white figure-hugging sleeveless top, which shows off her pierced nipples through it. She matches it with a pair of ripped booty denim shorts, white-patterned leggings and sneakers.
Completing her bombshell look by wearing suspenders, a bowler hat and a cane, Riri is seen rocking thick lashes under one eye only. The "Battleship" star shot a scene in front of a bright pink wall for the video which reportedly is inspired by Stanley Kubrick's 1971 film "A Clockwork Orange".

(From THE ONLY JAIDEN: This is an excerpt from CLASH MUSIC News about Emporio Armani establishing a collaboration with Rihanna to produce her first collection. The above picture bears one of the designs)
In a week that saw Versace for H&M sell out in under an hour, and Rihanna bag a double whammy with both We Found Love and Talk That Talk hitting the No.1 spot (in the UK singles and album chart respectively), the pop princess followed in Donatella’s footsteps with a fashionable hook up of her own.
Announced as the face of Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans back in July, Friday saw Rihanna extend her association with the brand with the launch of a capsule collection. Capsule being the key word, the collection is made up of just a few key pieces (jeans, white tees and pretty undies), simple pieces we could happily stick to everyday no less.
There are two T-shirts, one baring Rihanna’s face, the other an ‘R’ placed atop the brand’s eagle logo, as well as two jeans options; the first are a glam skinny black pair, the second-apparently favoured by RiRi- a more casual blue wash boyfriend style with a tight leg. The latter comes complete with a blue, red and white bandana, presented as a belt but equally as fetching worn on one’s head.
Maintaining the rock credentials of the collection, a multi-zipped black leather jacket offers a take on the gritty styles seen in Rihanna’s controversial video for the aforementioned, We Found Love. A canvas bucket-backpack with leather trim and metal pendant finishes the Armani Jeans collection.
Not one to shy away from a bit of flesh baring-as her current Loud tour certainly highlights-Rihanna’s lacy underwear comes in cobalt blue and pearl grey, with lightweight bralettes and constructed bras sitting alongside pant styles aplenty; sexual and seductive, the pieces even include a small cameo of the gal’s face! Perhaps something for the more hardcore fans amongst us…
The collection is available in-store now at Bond Street, Brompton Road and Manchester Emporio Armani stores. Prices begin from £28.

I recently posted a picture of Nicki Minaj (left) with her elongated legs, but didn't know what type of tights she was wearing. Well, according to popular blog NECOLE B*TCHIE, these tights are designed by Wolford, which can be found in upscale malls.
These tights were seen on other celebs like Melanie Fiona and Khloe Kardashian.
