Think Twice……

6 Jun


For celebrities second chances for reforming are rare….. Generally when a celebrity destroys their image so deep in the public eye they have a hard road of recovery… One celebrity knows that more than anyone else…. Lindsey Lohan… She had a hard uphill battle but now she is on the road to recovery… She will be starring as Elizabeth Taylor in the new documentary “Liz and Dick” which is set to show on Lifetime…  It is a look at the story of their love and the journey that exists within it. I must admit at first i thought to myself how can Lindsey ever play Elizabeth Taylor….. But when you see these photos you will think twice…

Get A Wig…..

4 Jun

So on my lazy day I decided to “Keep up with the Kardashians” on ETv and watching Miss Kim K I had an epiphany… Well let’s rewind….. The episode was all about Kim and her new fascination with wigs to create some fun in her life… And I thought… Hmmmmm… WIGS

Often times as women we want to change our look but out of fear of commitment, fear of change or fear of the unknown we tend to stick to what we know…. However in this new day and age we are presented with so many options in turns of wigs… This is not your everyday haloween costume wigs. However those are cool as well. But we are talking more modern day wigs. The styles, colors and manufacturing are so real it almost looks natural… So I say live a little!!! You may want to be a red-head but your scared of change well take after Kim K and get a wig!!!!  Be bold and live out your crimson fantasy….

Something Like A Fairytale……

15 May

Snow White and the Huntsman had its UK Premiere and the stars were out to shine… Well at least some of the stars were… I love Kristen Stewart aka Bella as a quirky, weird actress in Twlight. However I am not at all amused by her fashion sense…. I don’t like to write negative commentary but I have to be honest her fashion sense is so drab, and unflattering…. She is a beautiful young woman however I feel she tries her best to always look awkward. That’s my personal opinion and it could be wrong but I am seriously disliking this Marchesa Skeleton dress she wore to the premiere. Don’t get me wrong I am a fan of weird, nonconformist and original fashion… However in Kristen’s case I feel like she does it to draw attention away from herself and her beauty… It’s just my personal observation..

Charlize Theron was there and she shinned like a true star… She is half Kristen’s junior however she looked amazing in her revealing Christian Dior gown…. The fit was amazing and she looked like effortless beauty… I am becoming a fairytale junkie… I love watching “Once Upon a Time” on NBC as well as watching all the new renditions of fairytale classics so I a looking forward to seeing this movie!!! Anyway I wanna hear you weigh in on Kristen’s look is it fab or drab????

Act Like A Lady….

7 May

Steve Harvey’s critical acclaimed movie “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” has hit box offices and taken them by storm!!! Mr. Harvey has ha the #1 selling movie this past week and all I can say is “You Go Boy”!!! I am so happy for Steve and the entire cast of the movie… Megan Good recently starred in the movie and she looked AMAZING during the movies premiere in a flowy white gown…. personally I have never seen Megan looking this good. But it can be due to recent wedding bells. Megan’s long-standing boyfriend DeVon Franklin recently proposed and from what the rumor mill states they are both smitten. The two met on the filming on “Jumping the Broom” which DeVon produced and the two have been together ever since…. Not to mention he is a Seven Day Adventist….. We wish them all the best..

Now let’s get into this fashion!!!!! Megan was seen in this amazing flowy gown which made her look ethereal….. To recreate this look,  I found a similar dress by one of my Fave designers Rachel Gilbert…. Rachel Gilbert’s dress has that light, airiness that is so evident in Megan Good’s red carpet look….

Real Love…….

29 Apr

Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey were in the city of LOVE…. Paris to celebrate their 4th year of marriage!!! I remember when Nick nad Mariah announced their relationship they received so much negativity from the press… So many people doubted they would last and now with their twins in tow we all see that “Real Love” can leap bounds…. Mariah had on a beautiful white satin mermaid gown with black sash and Nick was wearing an all white suit to match. The couple looked stunning and we all wish them a happy and prosperous marriage!!!!

13 Apr

Scarlett Johansson channels old school hollywood on the cover of Vogue’s May 2012 issue.  The 27 year old successful actress shared some intimate information with the magazine. She also stars in the movie Avengers alongside co-star Mark Ruffalo, who comments on Scarlett’s performance by saying “She’s a badass…Scarlett played it really well, with a wink in her eye.”

On her young success: “It feels like a lifetime ago. Am I happy I’m not 20 anymore? Yeah. Nineteen? I don’t want to be that age. It’s incredibly confusing.”

On performing on Broadway: “I know it sounds supercorny, but it was a dream come true. That sort of pressure of having to deliver—I just find it thrilling.”

On her split from ex-husband Ryan Reynolds: ““It was horrible. Of course it’s horrible. It was devastating. It really throws you. You think that your life is going to be one way, and then, for various reasons or whatever, it doesn’t work out. This was something I never thought I would be doing. And there’s no way to navigate it. Nobody can give you the right answer. It’s never anything you want to hear. It’s a very lonely thing. It’s like the loneliest thing you’ll ever do, in some way.”

Check out a few photos from the spread….
