DRAKE Groomed Up, Suited and Booted For Upcoming GQ Spread

Drake's got the stylists around him, the eyebrows and beard groomed, and ready to roll. He knows GQ don't play. For another magazine a few weeks ago, he was a DIVO by showing up about 8 HOURS LATE for a photo shoot, and I presume he showed up on time for this one. As far as I know, if you're not respectful of GQ's standards, don't expect to be hired again.

Nice suits, by the way. Blue is in for Spring and Summer 2012.

See more pics of the groomed DRAKE, via GQ:

LookBack: RIHANNA's Style In 'Russian Roulette' Live Performance (2010)

I was captivated by no other style like Rihanna's after she made her RE-DEBUT after the unfortunate 2009 incident (you know what I'm talking about, but both Chris Brown and Rihanna have reconciled).

Here's an example of the LookBack at Rihanna doing her AOL Live Performance of 'Russian Roulette'. The shaved hair, high blonde mohawk, makeup, bodysuit with golden chains, poise... she fully EMBODIED the vision of 'model and style', even though she's just a music superstar.

Mo'Nique from 'The Mo'Nique Show', 'The Parkers' Has Been Hitting The Gym!! Great Workout Clothes!

Great job, Mo'Nique!!

I'm proud of her for wanting to 'save her life' by slimming down. She says that she wants to get down to 180, which she says is still a 'thick girl', but healthy regardless.

By the way, very nice workout clothes she has on! You don't have to look sloppy to work out. Try your local retailer and look for brands like Nike, Reebok, or higher end brands like Lu Lu Lemon Athletica.

BRANDY Spotted Out In Strange-Looking Fur Coat (Maybe It Looks Better In Person)

Media Takeout called BRANDY's jacket a DOG FUR jacket... but I don't think it's THAT terrible. Sure, it's not a GREAT fur coat but at least she matched her colors.

Sneaker of the Day: Air Yeezy 2 Sneakers and Kobe 7 Cheetah Sneakers

Many of us know how Kanye West likes to do collabos with other companies. Well, this right here is no exception. Rumoured to be doing a collabo with both Kobe Bryant and Nike, there's the birth of the below pic of the Kobe 7 Cheetah sneaker, as well as the Air Yeezy 2 in this colorway for about $250.

I think it's hott; anyone who wears this will definitely set themselves apart from the crowd.

WILLOW SMITH Spotted Still In Her Shaved Green Hair, And Rockin' A Rocker Chick Look!

WILLOW SMITH is definitely going about style her own way, and I'm feelin' some kind of way about her whole look... it's growing on me to be a COOL LOOK! On the other hand, I'm not so sure about this short green hair for this LITTLE GIRL.

This would look hott on a teen girl... post high-school.

The Pinnacle of Icy, Edgy, and Color: CHANEL, ALEXANDER McQUEEN, COMME DES GARCON Winter 2012-13 Shows

I'm loving these FALL/WINTER 2012 runway shows. So ICY, EDGY, and CREATIVE!! What's not to love? Each of these collections go in their own direction, but seem to become cohesive in the language of ICY (models with 'stone' expressions and background design), EDGY (garment design from Chanel and Comme des Garcon), and CREATIVE (Alexander McQueen's 'fluffiness').

Check out these videos from Chanel, Alexander McQueen, and Comme des Garcon!!

KID CUDI Spotted At Movie Theatre In His Beloved BALMAIN

Kid Cudi loves his BALMAIN. BALMAIN is known for its exclusive garments that come with astronomical prices; if it wasn't made popular through popular culture and through music artists, it probably wouldn't be where it is today.

Kid cudi was spotted eating popcorn wearing his BALMAIN embellished button pea coat for a hefty $3,625. Fit of the coat is nice; PRICE is not. I could find something just as good for under $200 or even $100.

MONICA's New Look: From Short Black To Long Blonde!

I'm always a fan of Monica, especially always a fan of NEW LOOKS.

Check out singer Monica, who was spotted taking this Instagram picture of her transformation from short, black hair to long, highlighted blonde. That's quite the step, but she looks absolutely beautiful. Makeup is flawless and stunning. SEXY.

This look was to do a video with Brandy on a song...

Chris Brown was in Hollywood sporting this dressed-down look which included the Super 7 International Toy Pirates hoodie, khaki jeans, and Nike Huarache sneakers. The KICKER piece was the chuncky silver chain around his neck.

Hmm... good look.

LENNY KRAVITZ for Interview Magazine (via Fashion Bomb Daily)

These pictures are from Interview Magazine featuring music artist LENNY KRAVITZ. His unique and somewhat eccentric style has had Lenny talked about on fashion websites for years. One of my favorite pics of Lenny was when he was walking down a London street with an iPhone in hand with a 'big black phone' attachment in the other. On top of that, he was wearing leather cutout pants AND what I think were HEELS.

Ugh... Brrr.... But it still interested me why he wanted to dress like that.

Check out a few more pics, and the bottom one with the chiseled abs is for the ladies...

TOJ News: Bobbi Kristina's FIRST Interview on 'Oprah Winfrey Network'

Bobbi Kristina Brown with Oprah Winfrey, remembering Whitney Houston

Tonight on OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network):

The first interview of Bobbi Kristina after Whitney Houston's death will take place front-and-center on the Oprah Winfrey Network tonight at 9 pm. The interview will discuss the experiences leading up to Whitney's death, and how Bobbi Kristina would like her mother to be remembered.

On a fashion note, I like Bobbi's white blouse-and-pearls combo and it shows a nice and airy mood despite the somberness of the situation.

This should be one touching interview. Developing...

Fan of LOUIS VUITTON? Check Out Amazing Grand Entrance Of Fall/winter 2012-13 Show

This is one over-the-top, grand entrance for LOuiS VuITTON's Women Fall/Winter 2012 collection. An actual train came rolling down the middle of the runway, then models dressed with a '30s kind of vibe step off the train while bellboys (I think that's what they're called) carry their sparkly and furry Louis Vuitton luggage.

Hott collection. See for yourself...
