Just a few pictures I want to show you for this weekend. I'm watching Whitney Houston's Celebration service televised live on BET, and I didn't want to leave y'all hanging, so here's a few pics.
I have Solange Knowles from her recent photo shoot, I love the denim and the tiny scarf she has on her neck. Perfection.
And here's Wendy Raquel Robinson from BET's 'The Game,' aka 'Tasha Mack' or 'Pow, Pow, Pow!'. She's a stunning and sometimes vicious actress who embodies beauty for her person her age. Go COUGARS! ROWR!!! LoL

Rihanna and Chris Brown Spotted Leaving Same Studio Within Minutes Of Each Other; Both Wore CAMO, Too!!
It is reported that Chris Brown and Rihanna recorded a reconcialition song together called 'Birthday Cake,' and were spotted leaving the same studios.
Here's the kicker: they both wore camouflage! Chris wore camo shorts and Adidas x Jeremy Scott sneakers, while Rihanna wore matching camo pants and cap.
TSK-TSK... ugh... OOOOKAY movin' on...
HOORAY! HOO-RAH!!! Willow Smith decided to come to her senses and put HAIR back on her head after a brief period where she cut ALL HER HAIR OFF! She looks great in these recent photos...
You know what... I was just talking about getting me some wingtips the other day. I'm a great fan of wingtips because of the elegance, old-world style, and timeless swag that wingtips embody. Now they are incorporated into wingtips and brogues.
Check out the latest Christian Louboutin Golfito wingtip sneaker hybrid, wingtip on top, sneaker rubber sole with Christian Louboutin's signature red sole on the bottom for $625. If you can afford them, rock it out with some black denim jeans or dark blue denim jean and a white or black T-shirt, and you're the COOLEST DUDE IN THE ROOM.

Actress Viola Davis Moves Up Social Ladder; Sits Between Guru Stylist Andre Leon Talley and Vogue's Anna Wintour
VIOLA DAVIS is on the move!
She was spotted at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week/ New York Fashion Week with her husband, and sitting between Anna Wintour from VOGUE and Andre Leon Talley, one of the bigwig stylists. must be really nice to sit between two fashion powerhouses.
By the way, Viola Davis is now a world-renowned actress after she won an Oscar for her outstanding performance in movie 'The Help.' Viola was also featured on VOGUE not too long ago.

After Nicki Minaj's horrible 'exorcism' performance for the 2012 Grammys, it's nice to see her ditch the ROMAN ZOLANSKI in favor of this nice and affordable COLOR-BLOCK dress from Forever 21. Check out this clever put-together as she has orange stiletto peep-toe boots with a blue Chanel bag.
Great, great, great! Nicki, please stay with this. I don't wanna have to hate you.

TOMMY HILFIGER has got quite the collection. I remember when I rocked Tommy Hilfiger in my grade school days. I was one BAAAAAD...
A lot entertainment folk are dubbing this year, THE YEAR OF ADELE. The proof: her album is literally everywhere, and just recently she was nominated for 6 Grammys and WON all 6 Grammys for her album, 21.
Now, Adele graced the cover of VOGUE for March 2012; so nice and inspiring to see full-figured women gracing the cover (although Adele's torso in the above pic does look a little photoshopped, but I won't get into that right now).
This musical couple really know how to gather attention not only through their music but through the artful clothes they display. Though rather mundance items if they stand alone (except Swizz's purple blazer and tie combo), Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz made their outfits spring forth at the 2012 Grammys.
A. Keys went for a black pencil dress with padded shoulders and bold gold neck jewelry and clear/black cap toe ankle strap pumps, and the cherry on top was her sky-high, Bruno Mars-style hair. Loved it, it caught my attention, I even WANTED it! Uhh--- let's move on....
Swizz Beatz's jacket and bowtie combo was a BANGER! 'Nuf said. Both easily were one of the he night.

Rihanna never fails to impress and turn heads. Check out this very low-cut, back-baring Armani dress she helped design and wore to the 2012 Grammy Awards show. Yes, Rihanna collabo'ed with Armani to design a 'Scarface'-inspired dress. Three major parts of her dress bared skin: cleavage, back, and leg. Those 3 are exactly the 3 different body parts a man likes to see initially.
I'm liking the whole '80s vibe Rihanna has been rockin' lately with her dirty blonde wavy hair, dark lipstick, and the infamous white 'THUG LIFE' tattoos on her knuckles. I also like at the same time, it's not too messy because Rihanna keeps it clean and simple with very light makeup, nails, and jewelty.

Who can be the modern-day Elvis and bring down the house? None other than Bruno Mars, who performed a spectacular performance for the 2012 Grammys. The crowd was wowed, and I TOO was wowed by Bruno's bold performance and brilliantly hued clothing. The satin gold blazer and bowtie combo immediately got my attention.
This combo is the kind of ensemble that can definitely enhance a performance or entrance and appearance into a room full of 'dulls' (no pun intended).
Check out more pics of Bruno Mars, his background dancers, and his SELF-SUFFICIENT and FAMOUS hair:

I don't care what PETA may say... but I have a penchant for FUR, and unless they offer me some money, I will publicly announce that I will stop wearing FURS, but until then, I'm wearing my soft and lustrous furs, yo!!!
Check out Rachel Zoe (above) in her mink coat. The round and somewhat menacing sunglasses paired with her all-black attire and gold jewelry makes her slightly GANGSTER, which I like.
The same for Anna Wintour (below), editor of VOGUE Magazine, who sports her signature bob with her unique fur coat that seems to envelope her, especially around her hips and then it curves around her knees; good tailoring. I'm also feeling the pleated hunter-green leather gladiator skirt. Gives Anna an 'Old Money' look.

Ya know... I thought since seeing this picture of Nicki, I would expect a bubble-gum themed, Nicki-style performance on the 54th Grammy Awards, but BOYY was I wrong. And I KNOW YOU KNOW what she wore... but I'll show you again:
This mix of a deathly Papal attire, this Little Red Riding hood, this new alter-ego Roman Zolanski... just COMPLETELY IRKS ME. That girl needs to be committed! I miss SUPERBASS and the old Nicki.
Angela Simmons' whole look for New York Fashion Week day 1 (above) was simply hott. she was spotted at the BCBG Max Azria runway show wearing all-black. A form-fitting dress made up of STRETCH and Leather, and Giuseppe Zanotti wedge heels.
But the show-stealer is Angela's Giuseppe Zanotti body-belt necklace, which was seen on Beyonce, on her 'Run the World (Girls)'. Angela's 'torso' jewelry is very befitting to her body. The gold provides a very soft touch to Angela's bronze and flawless skin. Great job on that whole look!

Zoe Saldana is one hott actress/model... who knows how to dress. Believe it or not, but Zoe Saldana (mostly) handpicks her own clothes rather than having stylists. Zoe is featured above in head-to-toe Prabal Gurung couture, which she wore to the Prabal Gurung Fall 2012 fashion show.
I'm liking the shimmer of the silk blazer and pant set, along with Nicholas Kirkwood heels. FIYAH, Zoe!! She's keepin' it cool! Pants with heels have always been a great combo...
In the passing of global superstar Whitney Houston, it's nice to see someone having a little fun here. Check out Ciara, who recently dyed the lower part of her wavy locks blonde. It is reported that she will sport this new look on the 54th Grammy Awards!
