Manus x Machina

4 May

The MET Gala is one of the most exciting times in New York City for a fashionista.  All the Elite come together adorning their best! This years theme was Manus x Machina; Fashion in the face of technology.  It was a mix of the practical with a modern scientific edge. It brought a New World Order feel to the runway and the stars shined bright. My fave for the night was Claire Dane’s dress which was designed by Zac Posen and had actual LED lighting. She lit up the runway literally and metaphorical. Take a look at some of my favorites below…

Daddy’s Little Girl….

10 Jan

 

Recently Jay-z and Beyonce welcomed their first child into the world… Baby girl “Blue Ivy Carter”….. It was an emotional journey for both parents has we have learned that they suffered the lost of a baby previously as reported by Global Grind. But that didn’t stop them from conceiving and giving birth to their precious jewel. Mr. Carter was so overcome with emotions that he took to the studio to create “Glory” a dedication to his baby girl. Through the song Jay-z displays raw emotion, paired with a melody to set a letter to his little one. I have always been a fan of Jay-z but this song took me to a whole other level of respect for him and his family, at the end you will hear an added bonuses the cries of his baby girl. Listen to it below….

Great Finds On The Dime…..

29 Nov

So Thanksgiving is over and now we are heading towards Christmas. I know Fab gave you guys a great list of ideas when she posted “Jumping Over The Gift Giving Hurdle”. Well I have a great list of potential stocking stuffers or that secret Santa gift. So many celebrities are coming out with fragrances. And I have to admit that they are not at all bad. Walgreens has a promotion going on right now where all these fragrances listed below are at a steal of $13.02!!! And any purchase $25.00 or more gets free shipping. You can’t go wrong with a deal like that!

My top two scents is Halle Berry “Reveal” it is a beautiful blend of woody and floral scents. There is a mixture of mimosa, peach, honeydew melon, red berries, plumeria, iris blossom, neroli, vetiver, cashmere woods and skin musk.  It sounds like a lot of stuff brewing in the pot but the finish product is an elixir of pure sensuality. It is a light fragrant scent that lingers on the skin and tantalizes the senses.

My second pick is Celine Dion “Inspiration” it embodies burst of juicy guava, mimosa and jasmine. It is a captivating scent that is fruity and whimsical and was designed to bring out the elegant, classy side of every woman.

Please see my list below and tell me what scents you enjoy…

Beyonce’ Wedding Dress Revealed!

18 Nov

Beyonce’s 2008 nuptials to entrepreneur and mogul Jay-Z was a guarded event. The media had no information on the details of the wedding which took place in their New York Apartment. In her new released video “I was here” live at Roseland Ballroom which is one of my favorite songs on her album, Beyonce shows a clip of her wedding dress. She has let us in a personal part of her life which was never shown publicly.

In other parts of the video, she has shown other accomplishments throughout her life before and during her career which were huge milestones. She has met Michael Jackson, Tina Turner, Oprah Winfrey, her days as a Destiny’s Child group member and of course the big reveal of her baby bump at the MTV awards are all shown in the video. Beyonce’ has many remarkable events throughout her life and one of my favorites that will always stick with me was when she sang “At Last” for President Barack Obama & first lady Michelle’s first dance at the inaugural dinner.

Beyonce’s wedding dress is absolutely gorgeous and I love the video with all the special moments throughout her life. When watching the video it shows how precious childhood moments are and how much her parents embraced her talent from an early age. Take a look at the photo below and the video which is absolutely moving.

2011 VMA’s… The Good, The Bad, The ……..

30 Aug

So last night was MTV’S Video Music Awards and I couldn’t help but wonder what memo was sent out to everyone…. I am sure I wasnt the only person who sat in awe as each person walked on the red carpet. The highlight of my night was definitely Beyoncé’s grand announcement and watching Chris Brown perform. There were a few awkward  and memorable moments like the guy who ran on stage during Kanye West and Jay-Z’s performance. And  of course the cast of Jersey Shore…………………….

But my main focus through it all was FASHION….. And can I say I saw some things that left me speechless!!! I know some of you lost power due to Hurricane Irene so here is a few looks from the night…

5 Jul

Recently Beyonce released her newest debut album “4” a musical compilation of hard beats and debuts from Kanye West and Andre 3000. This album is all about taking risk. Beyonce stepped out of the shadow of her father Matthew Knowles to work with a new team and create a new vision of who Beyonce Knowles really is….

I can’t lie at first I was the least impressed with her new album. I think because I am such a die-hard fan of her and her work I was expecting the old Bey…. However I think Beyonce wanted to shake the scene and show people she is more than just an R&B artisit or what we “expect” her to be.  I have to say my fav song is ‘End of Time” the beat is intoxicating and I find myself singing the song and mimicking the beat. I have to give it to Ms. Knowles on this one. It is not what you expect from her but I am sure over time everyone will see the vision and the true Beyonce Knowles…..

* I have provided a video by VEVO which displays the creative process and personal journey Beyonce took to create the album 4.

Cowgirl Fierce!

25 Jun

Miss Sasha Fierce herself has channeled a new look in Essence magazine’s July issue.  Beyonce has an amazing interview in this issue and talks of her year on hiatus away from the states and how it has changed her life.  It is a good read and the photo shoot is gorgeous.  Beyonce is a Houston, Texas girl so I am not shocked at how well she plays the role of a cowgirl:)  Take a look at a few glamorous shots below!

Owwwwww! I heart it!  What do you think?  Is Mrs. Carter aka “King B” nailing this fashion spread?  Yay or Nay?
