GRANNY HAS AN EDGE 2!

So everyone knows I have a thing for online shopping. & I was cruising my new fave site topshop.com (of course this site is nothing new to true fashionistas) but anyway, I spotted these super super cute spike’d sandals by Hoxton! I love how a few spikes can give a simple sandle such an edge! & This was right up my granye’ chic alley! I would wear them as an ‘everyday’ pair bcuz they can be worn with alot just to spice up the fit a little…. You can get these for only $50 on topshop.com– that’s even cheaper than a Steve Madden knockoff ‘replica’l! Anyways, topshop has been a celeb go 2 for kool different stuf 4 a while & now I get the hype! It has alot of unique pieces for great steals … Besides any1 that can convince me to actually buy a gold or metallic shoe which I usually loathe (ugh) def. has my vote!

GUESS MY LITTLE BLOG HAS RELEVANCE AFTER ALL……

So my beloved Jennifer Lopez was spotted in Paris the other day still on the promo train for “The Backup Plan”. Of course she looked glamorous as always wearing a total of 3 looks in just 1 day! So I’m doing my up & down check just to see what she’s wearing when all of sudden GASP! There it is! the Loewe ‘Amazona’ bag! Remember when I introduced you guys to her a couple of posts ago? Unlike the multi color version she opted for classic black! BUT that’s okay! I may be reaching, but seeing Jennifer Lopez sport a bag that I picked as a fave a while back made me actually feel like she listened to me in some weird way…I can’t really explain it lol just know that I feel like my blog has been given the stamp of approval! IDEAL is officially validated! YIPPPEEEEE!

CHECK OUT JENNY’S PARIS LOOKS BELOW!

The first look was not my favorite from her. Everyone knows for some odd reason I just have this pet peeve with crop’d jackets. Maybe because they never fit me quite right & always had that gap in the back…. But anyways, the last two looks with the Etro Bohemian dress & the third ensemble were just total Jennifer Lopez with the long wavy hair oversized shades & big hoop ear rings! I especially love the black Gianfranco Ferré dress which must be her new fave go 2 designer since she also wore ‘Ferre’ to “The BackUp Plan” premiere in the states. Anyways, I like that even in the picture you can see the detail which is hard because all black doesn’t photograph well. Just ask Nina Garcia- she’s always saying it on Project Runway! but wait til she sees this! The dress was beautiful!

US WEEKLY HOLLWOOD STYLE ISSUE PARTY!

When I said it takes a certain kind of woman to wear Versace, I definitely meant a chic like Ciara! The muse for Givenchy took a break from the edgy designer to wear head to toe Versace @ the US Weekly Hot Hollywood Style party last night & she look UH-FREAKIN-MAZING! I mean smoking hott! She spilled so much sexiness out this dress it was ridiculous! & I love how a dress this short & tight still manages to have a slit, BUT like I said it takes a certain woman to pull off Versace & Ciara did just that. She paired the dress with 7 inch platform’d stilettos from their s/s ’10 collection that I reported on a while back. Cute! I guess slowly but surely they are moving on from BET & catching on everywhere else…..I’m sure this look made Donatella so proud! I see her being the muse in the future…just puting it out there

The honoree for ‘Style Icon of the Decade’, Jennifer Lopez hit the red carpet wearing a Georges Chakra Spring 2010 Couture dress. Not as hott as her promo chic fits, but I like it! In true diva style the caged corset is made out of Swarvoski crystals & she paired it with a gold clutch & matching heels. On another note…Don’t you just love how she poses on the red carpet! Especially the pose to the left. Its just nasty, sexy, come hither cuz I’m hott & I know it! LOVE HER!

OTHER ATTENDEES…………..


Ciara’s bestie, Lala, also hit the red carpet wearing s/s ’10 Versace stilettos. These are the same 1s that Eva wore to the Monique show. You know whenever I think of Ciara, Lala & Kim I always picture them callin each other up b4 they go out and saying “Girl what you gon wear“. You know like typical friends do because they ALWAYS seem to be either similar in styling or wearing almost the same thing. “Girl you wearing ur new Versaces?/ Me 2!” See ya there!


My celeb crush Jason Williams! Isn’t he swexxxy! Mmm Hmmm! To bad he’s taken..but I can still lust can’t I? Anyway, he hit up the party 2!

Dancing with the stars contest Nicole Scherzinger also hit the red carpet. I think the dress is cute, but it looks like club gear. Ya know like something you can easily pick up from the mall. Not high end @ all, but for some reason since this was put together by US Weekly, I didn’t expect much style than say if this was a Harper’s Bazaar party. I mean Jennifer Lopez is A- list & stylish, but for this event that’s where my expectations stopped. Take that however you’d like.

JENNIFER LOPEZ: THE GLAM GODDESS IS PROMO CHIC!

Anybody who thought that Jennifer Lopez had lost her swag (I hate to use that word but its just so fitting) was sadly mistaken! The fashion icon has been setting the promo trail on fire while making her rounds for her latest film “The BackUp Plan”! She had left the scene just for a minute to give birth to twins (but, u know in Hollywood being gone for a second is equivalent to years) Anyway, Jenny is back! Had she ever left? She’s a style maven! Wearing designers from Lanvin to Victoria Donna Karan-she nailed it every time!

I MEAN ITS JENNIFER LOPEZ FOR CHRIST SAKES!

Diddy even vows that she’s the prototype turning her into a noun AND an adjective! “…..all I touch is Jlo’s” lol

Check out Ms. Lopez’s calendar of impeccable looks!

MONDAY: she hit The Today Show with Matt Lauer wearing a cute red mini Halston dress from their fall 2010 collection. She paired it with blonde louboutins! HOWEVER, I went n2 a fashion coma when I saw this wrap sweater! Everyone knows how much a love a good throw & this was to die for! The bag is by Mulberry btw

Then she appeared on David Letterman wearing a look from Donna Karen: not pictured (sorry) but her coat was by designer Mikhael Kale.

TUESDAY: She was spotted leaving her hotel to do “Live with Regis & Kelly” in a sequined dress from Lanvin paired with the T-strap chain stilettos from their spring 2010 collection.

She also visited CBS’s “The Early Show” wearing up and coming designers Sachin + Babi, from their Fall 2010 collection. This dress by far was my favorite! I loved the contrast of color. She paired the dress with Sergio Rossi pumps.

WEDNESDAY: After all hits, Ms. Lopez still wowed at the L.A. premiere of “The Backup Plan” wearing a one shouldered Gianfranco Ferré dress! PERFECTION!

Gasm! Gasm! Gasm! I can’t take it! She always exudes drama, glam, & glitz! Love her! Be sure to go support her film, “The BackUp Plan” which hits theaters tomorrow!

LISA RAYE IS THE REAL McCOY!


I’ve always liked Lisa Raye because she exudes confidence! & after watching the first two episodes of her new reality show, I am even more drawn to her because I feel like I got to know her personally beyond the physical. I like the fact that even though she is undeniably beautiful she doesn’t have an “air” or “ego” about her that you might expect from a woman with her looks. Ya know? She’s really down to earth & just a kool chic who genuinely ( & I have to stress the word genuinely) wants to continue her success in Hollywood & entertainment.

PLUS


I love how she interacts with her daughter. Some people think that she’s too affectionate, but I totally disagree. In fact I think that’s the best part about the show. She really loves & cares about the well being of Kai. I love how close they are & the dynamic of their mother/ daughter relationship. & I like that Kai has a regular job working at Bath & Body Works! Idk y I took such notice of that but it kind of through me for a loop in a good way. It was refreshing 2 see that Lisa wasn’t so “Hollywood” & her daughter works a normal job like any other girl her age. To me it made her that much more likable & relatable.

Anyways, I won’t dwell. but because I’m such a reality tv junkie & because I like Lisa Raye…I ask that you guys please support her by tuning in tonight & every Thurs night to watch Lisa Raye’s reality show: The Real McCoy on TV One @ 9pm!

WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Catch a sneak peak of tonight’s episode below:

LOOK OF THE DAY!

My pick for “look of the day” goes to Jada Pinkett Smith- HANDS DOWN! She & her dual force Will Smith attended the American Red Cross Gala over the weekend & Ms. Smith hit the red carpet looking absolutely stunning in this Fall 2010 Naeem Khan gown! With such an embellished gown, there was no need to over accessorize. Instead she opted for dainty gold drop earrings. She looked PERFECT!

& I just had to post a close up! Look @ her flawless skin! Ladies we need to get it together. She will be 39 this year- most young chics my age don’t even come close to looking like this! GO JADA!

VERSACE S/S ’10 SHOE COLLECTION!

So, I saw the Versace s/s ’10 sky high stilettos (7 inches & counting 2 be exact) hit the runway back during Fall Fashion Week. Classic Versace LOUD & over the top! I mean it takes a certain person to wear Versace. But when I saw these shoes right here I said to myself….”Self, these shoes look like fun, but they will NEVER catch on“. I mean where would you be going in these!? Seriously!

Well, apparently to a show on BET!

Nicki Minaj wore the python cut out boots on 106 & Park back in March. But I said to myself “Okay…its Nicki Minaj”, what else is she suppose 2 wear?!

HOWEVER…..

Most recently, model Eva Pigford wore a pair of the platform’d sandals during an appearance on the Monique show! & I said to myself: “Hmmm…still not me, but kinda CUTE“!-on her. & I do like the fact that Eva’s were redesigned with the steel plating on the platform & heel vs. the runway white.


Check out more of Versace’s festive shoe delights below!

Still not my cup of tea, but hey I’m a granny @ heartWhat do you guys think?

KRISTEN BELL IN MONIQUE LHULLIER FALL ’10!

Celebs have been wearing the Fall collections months before the season even hits! Recently actress Kristen Bell attended the Good Housekeeping 125th Anniversary party wearing a look from Monique Lhullier’s a/w ’10 that I gushed so much over during Fashion Week a few months back! Unfortunately, I was very disappointed in Ms. Bell’s overall look. I understand wanting to look effortless, but you don’t want to look like you didn’t put any effort in @ all! For me it’s the black shoes & the hair that’s throwing me off. Plus, since you can’t wear the black tights from the original runway look because…um its SPRING! “HELLO”?- then you need to @ least pair the dress with gasm stilettos to make the haute dress look even more HOTT!
… But what do you think?

  • Yes, I think she looks great!
  • No, not really!
  • I don’t like this dress!
