Her hair/wig is beautiful, she expertly mixed the patterns on her top and pants and those Loubs. to create the beautiful look above. My only two critiques are the coral eye makeup and lip were too much since there was so much coral in her outfit. I would've also loved to to see a shorter pant so that we could get a better look at those shoes! Head inside for more pics... more
04/20/2012 • According to the Huffington Post, Roberto Cavalli isn't a fan of American fashion or American Vogue editor, Anna Wintour. This was all based on an interview that he did with D. La Repubblica. I ventured to said website and sure enough their is a video of him being interviewed in his beautiful abode. Cavalli explains that American fashion is "terrible" and says "you almost can't even look at it." If this wasn't enough he goes on to say that our "so called" terrible fashions have been "driven by the great journalist Anna Wintour who want all women to be like her and dress like she does." At least he credited her with being a great journalist? #GlasshalfFull

04/17/2012 • WWD reports that Hip-POP super star Nicki Minaj has signed a fragrance licensing deal with Give Back Brands LLC to produce and launch her debut scent, due in department stores this fall, just in time for the hoilday shopping season. Nicki Had this to say about her new endeavor:
“I have always been a huge fan of great fragrances,” the ‘Starships’ singer said. “This is yet another extension of my creative expression. I designed the scent and bottle with my Barbz in mind.”
Yesterday I reported that Nicki Minaj deleted her Twitter account after fighting with fans about leaked music. With that said the head Barbie in charge will have to go harder promoting this fragrance, being that I am sure she lost a few Barbz after the spat. Anyway, stay tuned for a crazy ad campaign from Minaj because we all know hunnie is La Loca..lol...congrats.
04/17/2012 • Do "real men" wear animal print? I'm sure no one is surprised to see Kanye or Lil Wayne in said variety and even if at one point we cared I think that we, "The viewing public" have quickly become immune to their antics. My question is about the average Joe Schmo. I've said it before and I'm sure you agree, celebs get "a pass". They do, say and wear a lot of things that you and I couldn't pull off. With that being said, how would you feel about famous men wearing animal print. More importantly, how do you feel about the Average Joe wearing animal print? More pics inside... more
04/17/2012 • FAME.... it ain't for EVERYBODY, Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose set down with GQ Magazine and spoke about the celebrity status that goes along with being the biggest star in his hometown and how it makes him uncomfortable and doesn't fit his personality.
"Sometimes it's too much," Rose told GQ Magazine in a story posted on its website Tuesday.
"Chicago isn't used to stardom. Back when Michael [Jordan] was here, everyone was used to actors and singers and people being at the games. But there's been a drought since then, and even celebrities, they'll stop here to film a movie and then pop right back out. They don't know how to act toward celebrity. So I always have someone with me. I can have a hat on, glasses on, whatever. People still notice me. If I go outside without a hat on, I feel like I'm naked."
Rose, who won two state titles at Simeon Career Academy in Chicago, played one season at Memphis before his hometown Bulls made him the No. 1 pick in the 2008 NBA draft. The quiet and reserved point guard experienced immediate success, winning Rookie of the Year and leading the Bulls to the playoffs. His profile -- locally and nationally -- has risen each year since with three NBA All-Star Game appearances, an impressive performance with Team USA in 2010, a 14-year endorsement deal with adidas worth a reported $250 million and an NBA MVP award last season at 22, making him the youngest recipient of the award in history.
- Rose told GQ that the more success he has on the court, the tougher it gets for him to deal with his fame. Now that's deep. I hope he remains mentally healthy; because fame is like a drug and we all know how things can go left quick! Click HERE to read the full story.
