RIHANNA Gone Rocker At Michael Jackson Immortal World Tour; Tattoos 'THUG LIFE' On Fingers!!

The Los Angeles Premiere Of Michael Jackson 'The Immortal' World Tour

Rihanna was spotted looking ROCKER CHICK at the Michael Jackson Immortal World Tour. Loving the mussed-up and blown-out hair, definitely reminiscent of the '80s, and also check out the leather pants (could they be in this year for the fashion-daring?) and that BOSS leather jacket that she's wearing. It seems like it tells a story with its rocker studs, upside down cross, and side detailing. Will update on what brand the jacket is.

Check out more views of Rihanna's rocker clothes, as well as the tattoo (temporary or permanent?) 'THUG LIFE' that she tattooed on her fingers:

I Like: FRANKIE MORELLO Winter 2012-13 Runway Show

Check out the Frankie Morello Winter 2012-13 collection.

I like the whole metallics/raw material look blended with such great tailoring. Every model was fitted and finished to perfection. Like the uniqueness and unexpected NSFW moment toward the end of the show.

SWIZZ BEATZ Changes It Up; Goes BALD and Wears Pink Shorts In Hawaii!

It's always interesting to see what rappers do on their off-days. Check out Swizz Beatz, Alicia Keys, and son Egypt on vacation in Hawaii, and you can see Swizz Beatz for yourself...

Swizz has shaved his head bald (but you can see the hair growing back) and is wearing pink shorts. Tryin' to get that whole Hawaiian, tropical vibe huh?

But anyway, it is cool to see a rapper in such a HARD, tough-as-nails environment and being lightyears away into their own 'softer' fashion sense, while still being 'masculine.'

Art and Fashion Fusion: KEITH HARING x NICHOLAS KIRKWOOD Platform Pumps (Could Pass For Art Gallery Shoe...)

Ladies, check out these platform pumps by KEITH HARING x NICHOLAS KIRKWOOD collabo. I spotted this on WETHEURBAN and thought YES!! Art IS Fashion!

So needless to say, these platform pumps would do very well in drawing attention towards the woman wearing them, as well as gracing an ART GALLERY like the Detroit Institute of Arts or your local major art musuem.

RIHANNA Wears Head-Turning Louboutin Sandals w/ Straps As Measuring Tape!!

Check out Rihanna's $795 Christian Louboutin strapped sandals. Looks normal, huh?

Well, look a little closer...

The straps are actually CALFSKIN LEATHER MEASURING TAPE! These sandals would pop even more worn with calf-length pants or a nice rocker TUTU.

Detroit Tigers' PRINCE FIELDER Sports New Detroit Baseball Jersey; Signs Major Contract

It's official: Prince Fielder is now a part of Detroit Tigers legacy.

The resilient Detroit Tigers is on a move to win, and with several stellar baseball players such as Justin Verlander and Victor Martinez already on the team, Detroit native Prince Fielder will make Detroit baseball season EXPLOSIVE! Fielder signed a 9-year, $214 million contract with the Tigers and Ilitch Holdings ($22 million the first 2 years, then $24 million annually).

Check Fielder's new jersey (yes, it's FASHION, too). I might cop me one because Detroit Tigers will be having a Detroit Lions-like SURPRISE season, except they'll be winning the World Series! :-)

Beautiful wife CHANEL... photo doesn't do her justice.

The Most Fashionable EXes: Rihanna and Chris Brown (Y'all Asked For It So...)


I usually don't like to group Rihanna and Chris Brown together because that would make me right along with the rest of the folk that fueling the flames of the still-smoldering 2009 issue of the Rihanna and Chris Brown incident. Coming up is the 3-year anniversary of that and I seriously wish it would go away. PEOPLE keep it alive.

But anyway, I keep track of my viewers (yes, many of you) and it's very clear that the tag 'CHRIS BROWN' is the highest sought-after name on my blog search and is the main drive of traffic to my blog. But here's the kicker: 'RIHANNA' is the name that is one of the most sought-after... RIGHT AFTER viewers are finished searching blog posts for 'Chris Brown.'

BUT... they are EXes now, even though they were spotted at the same lounge, Greystone Manor. So without further ado, here are a few pics of the most fashionable EXes alive: Rihanna and Chris Brown:

So whaddaya make of this? I don't see anything but TWO BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE (as Chris would say). Do I want Chris Brown and Rihanna back together? No. Move on.

*Wink and a smirk... then a SMH*

Vintage Label 'Strivers Row' Pays Homage To 'RED TAILS' w/ Its Commemorative Vintage Line

This REALLY touches the heart.

Vintage label STRIVERS ROW, known for producing a line of vintage clothing, has released a commemorative edition meant to honor the Tuskegee airmen, as well as celebrating the George Lucas- produced film, 'Red Tails.' The movie earned $19.1 million its opening time, surpassing Hollywood critics' expectations.


There is a line of red scarves as well as patches that resemble or IS the patches that the actors wore in the movie and what the Tuskegee airmen wore in their 'air' time.

See more pics:

The wear (Ebony Magazine) is just incredibly cool, perfectly vintage without having to be. In other words, TIMELESS. Support RED TAILS in the theatres!

Check Out Fash Blogger Allen Onyia, Owner of Blog UPSCALE HYPE (Style)

Photo by @HenroDaGreat

One of my favorite fashion blogs, UPSCALE HYPE, has for the first time landed its own post on my blog. This time, it's all about the owner, Allen Onyia, better known as ALLEN O . This is the first time I've seen his style. Very preppy, forward, all-American, makes his style his own.

I could call it TRENDY, but TRENDY isn't quite the word; FASHIONISTO is, because fashionistas and fashionistos take trendy clothes, flip 'em, and try to stay me. I can include a thrift-store vintage jacket, Urban Outfitters T-shirt, broken-in Levis, monochromatic watch, and my FAV military boots... and there's my LOOK.

Check out Allen's different looks:

This Beautiful $9 Million Hollywood Hills Pad Belongs To... DRAKE?! (Excerpt Inside)

Drake's backyard

I love real estate and houses; I'll get into that very soon (when my STACKS get larger). But check out Drake's new, sprawling mansion. REEEEEEEALL NIIIIIIIIICE, although the interior is in need of some re-modeling (too many wall paintings) such as soft colors on walls and throw rugs and contrast that with some dark, manly, and modern furniture.

And see the excerpt from Rap-Up/ Necole B***hie below:

Just a few days beforehand, Drizzy held a huge housewarming party at his new $9 milli bachelor pad in Hollywood Hills. He reportedly moved into the $45,000/month mansion after putting two condos up for sale in Miami. The new residence includes six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a wine cellar, tennis court, volleyball court, 24-seat theater, and pool complete with a waterfall oasis that has its very own wet bar where Drake and his crew can drink to his accomplishments. And did I fail to mention the on-site, five-stall horse facility with a riding area for any chicks who come over and want to ride. There’s even an ATM machine if you are short on cash. Ballin’...

Actress Michelle Williams Channels Marilyn Monroe In Latest GQ Spread

Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams is instantly recognizable to me as a 'white woman with short hair.' Nothing RACIST about that, but it stands out to me because there aren't too many of those.

Well check out actress Michelle channeling Marilyn Monroe in her latest photo shoot with GQ and in her latest movie, My Week With Marilyn. She definitely is the element of surprise by revealing curves and svelte-ness in her negligee since she's usually conservative and covered up.

What I like about Michelle is she didn't celebrate this whole Marilyn look that she was going for. She says it's just a role and she is a "mother first, an actress second."

ELIJAH CONNOR, Detroit native and singer, and most notably featured on Tocarra's and Donald Trump's 'The Ultimate Merger' dating show, has graced my blog as my first elected model of the month.

I hereby slate ELIJAH CONNOR as MR. FEBRUARY for Style. I admire this guy's style because it's cool, non-confrontational, bold but never over-the-top, kind of like his very own personality. The all-around way of how Elijah carries himself as a model and singer will surely and already meets his match for success.

Check out more pics from his folio and visit his website :

KIM KARDASHIAN's Red Lace Dress--- Valentine's Day PERFECT!!

Take a look at Kim Kardashian's red lace dress (I'm a HUGE fan of lace, it's sensual and TIMELESS, when used in the right context. This grabbed my attention (as does RED for any guy) and it will DEFINITELY make a statement as a Valentine's Day dress.

Consider this, ladies.. and your Valentine's will be ALL OVER YOU. Trust me. Make sure your shoe game is sharp and platformed stilettos, and you'll have your 'LOVE' wrapped around your finger. I cannot stress that enough *wink*.
