Gwen Stefani top looks from "It's My LIfe"

My personal style can be described as bipolar (Conservative, punk, bohemian, emo, euro, red carpet, urban)  much like Gwen Stefani's emotional roller coaster in this throw back NO DOUBT video. I guess that's why this truly is one of my favorite's. Gwen channels the Vintage roaring 20's and hits the nail on the head with each wardrobe change. From court room attire, lingerie, evening gowns, pearls, cuffs, robes, garters, thi- highs, silks, pastels, & stripes. It's an overall cold blooded murderous fashion scene. . . . Here are my top looks form this Vid.

Lena Dunham Hangs With Anna Wintour, Making That Vogue Cover Seem More likely to Manifest. . .

Anna Wintour , Lena Dunham at a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event

All those rumors about Anna Wintour girl-crushing on Lena Dunham? Yeah, they might not be so far off.
Reports earlier this week stated that Vogue's editor-in-chief is wooing Dunham, allegedly planning a private dinner for her with the aim to "seduce Lena into bringing her next generation audience into the Vogue brand." Also speculated? That Lena might have a Vogue cover in the works.
While a cover is far from confirmed (and some might even deem highly unlikely), Anna and Lena were spotted hanging together on Wednesday -- at a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event, no less. Dunham joined fashion darlings including Rose McGowan, Diane Kruger and Jessica Pare, plus industry heavyweights like Rachel Zoe and Victoria Beckham, at the swanky Chateau Marmont luncheon, where the gals clinked glasses, chatted with CFDA designers and took in a fashion show.
They also posed for pictures with Anna. The famously icy editor even cracked a smile for her Dunham photo opp, which is as good a sign as any that this friendship is blossoming before our very eyes.
We know we want a Dunham Vogue cover. But does Anna?

Roksanda Ilincic Pops Up ! : The designer’s new store may not be complete, but that won’t stop us from shopping.

Fashion designer Roksanda Ilincic’s first store in London’s Mayfair neighborhood won’t be finished until early next year, but that hasn’t stopped her from utilizing the raw space. To coincide with Frieze Art Fair, she teamed up the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation to create a capsule collection of eight colorful, graphic dresses, inspired by the modernist painter and currently on display in her Mount Street windows. Presented as part of a neon, construction-site installation created by the wildly eccentric set designer Gary Card, the wearable works of art will be available on net-a-porter.


RiRi Hearts MAC Holiday is here! Her next and last collection for MAC will hit stores in December 2013 but we have a first look at all the new products! See the gorgeous makeup below!

Rihanna‘s collaboration with MAC has been hugely successful so we’re sad to report that her Holiday collection is the final installment in their partnership. The line features the return of the best-selling RiRi Woo red lipstick as well as some gorgeous new faves ! Along with the gorgeous red lipstick RiRi Woo, the new collection features two new lipsticks: Pleasure Bomb and Bad Girl RiRi.

The collection also features nail polish, Superslick Liquid Eye Liner in two shades — cockiness and pieces persuation, Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow, Bronzing Powder, the double-ended 217 Blending Brush and the 239 Eye Shader Brush.

The collection also features a rose gold makeup bag that can hold all your new goodies! We especially love the holiday eye shadow palettes in two combinations — 2XDare and Presh Out. The color combinations are amazing! The collection is limited edition so get your favorites fast!

Holiday Collection Packaging — Prettier Than Ever

All of Rihanna’s collections have been gorgeous, but this one is extra special. For the holiday season, the new cosmetics feature an exclusive white-pearl packaging with rose-gold details. We completely love it!

Iggy Azalea: 'I really admire Beyoncé'

Just found out this a.m. from boss lady Jhenelle Hill that Iggy Azalea has opened up about her friendship with Beyoncé. 

Azalea is to open up for the Australian leg of Beyoncé's 'Mrs. Carter Show World Tour' later this month.

The rapper recently shared with BET's 106 & Park that she has been greatly influenced by the 'Love on Top' singer.

"I love me some Bey. I really like all her tour looks," Azalea commented. "I've kinda been biting little things from them. I have to admit, I really admire her." 

Azalea also discussed her friendship with rapper TI, calling him a "good friend".

"Sometimes he gives me lipstick advice," she said, adding: "Sometimes he gives me some style help too. He's cool. That's what good friends do. Good friends can't let you walk out of the house looking crazy."

Azalea recently released music video for her new single 'Change Your Life', which features TI.

Look good, feel better!

With October comes breast cancer awareness month, so I would like to shine a spo light on an organization that gives back to people affected by breast cancer: Look Good Feel Better. The group’s mission is dedicated to improving the self-esteem and quality of life of people undergoing treatment for cancer. The aim is to improve a person’s self-image and appearance through complimentary group, individual, and self-help beauty sessions that promote positive "Skin Ego" (ww.skinego.com) ; create a sense of support, confidence, courage, and community. Look Good Feel Better has programs for everyone: men, women and teens. I’m lucky to work for The Sapphire Salon & Destination Spa, which has a few representing members of The Sapphire family that volunteer at LGFB.

Look Good Feel Better is a free, non-medical, brand-neutral program dedicated to helping you look as good as possible during chemotherapy, radiation, and other cancer treatments. One portion of the program that I am in love with is the makeup section; each client receives a goody bag with all of the makeup essentials. Being brand-neutral, they include everything from Dior mascara to Covergirl foundation; it’s always a surprise.

BEAUTY MYTHS: Professionals weigh in on hair, skin and makeup advice

Women start learning beauty tips and tricks as soon as they’re old enough to observe their moms’ habits. By the time we hit adulthood, we’ve been bombarded with advice about how to look our best. And not all of it’s useful or even true.
  • Brushing your hair a lot makes it shiny
  • image
    ‘Brushing your hair a lot makes it shiny.' Marcia Brady’s 100 strokes a day is too much, but Fargo hairstylist Erin Hafliger says brushing does increase shine because it helps distribute the natural oils from the scalp down through the ends.

Women start learning beauty tips and tricks as soon as they’re old enough to observe their moms’ habits.
Then come the sleepovers, magazines, websites and blogs. All devoted to beauty.
“75 Timeless Beauty Tricks.” “Beauty Tips: Get Gorgeous in a Flash.” “10 Beauty Tricks That Make Guys Melt.”
By the time we hit adulthood, we’ve been bombarded with advice about how to look our best. And not all of it’s useful or even true.
Here, a group of local professionals weigh in on some of the more common notions about hair, skin and makeup.
‘Toothpaste zaps zits.’
Yes, toothpaste can dry out pimples, but it can also cause irritation from the alcohol, fragrance and flavor it contains.
Dr. Susan Mathison of Fargo’s Catalyst Medical Center says whitening toothpaste may also cause light spots in place of the breakout. If it can bleach your teeth, it can bleach your skin.
If you don’t have acne-specific products on hand, try calamine lotion or benzoyl peroxide cream instead.
‘You can match your foundation to your hand’
Women seek the perfect shade using their jawlines, necks, chests, inner wrists and hands. But Moorhead-based makeup artist Trista Jetvig Chapman says hands aren’t made for matching.
“They’re usually a shade or more darker than your face because they don’t get the exfoliation or sunscreen your face normally does,” she says.
Chapman, who owns Blushed Airbrush Makeup and Tanning, uses the neck as a swatch.
“Your neck is usually the closest color to your face, and then your makeup will blend instead of be too dark or cause a makeup line,” she says.
‘Brushing your hair a lot makes it shiny.’
Marcia Brady’s 100 strokes a day is too much, but Fargo hairstylist Erin Hafliger says brushing does increase shine because it helps distribute the natural oils from the scalp down through the ends.
‘Sleeping on your back prevents wrinkles.’
Though Mathison says she can usually tell which side people sleep on, sleeping on your back isn’t preventive.
“Sun protection, not smoking and a healthy diet play an even more important role,” she says.
‘Crossing your legs will give you spider or varicose veins.’
Brandi Rostad, a nurse and vascular technician with Fargo’s Hogue Vein Institute, says that’s a myth. They’re genetic.
“It would seem to make sense that you cut off blood flow while crossing your legs, which would lead to these unsightly veins,” she says. “However, there is no clinical research to back it up.”
‘Only people with fair skin need sunscreen.’
Anyone who gets the faintest hint of additional color from sun exposure is at risk of skin damage, Mathison says.
Make sure your sunscreen’s broad-spectrum, and boost your protection with hats, sunglasses and protective clothing.
‘Split ends can be fixed.’
Nope. But they can be prevented and their appearance diminished.
Hafliger says protein treatments containing keratin or argan oil can help strengthen the hair and mend mild breakage, but if the ends are split, they should be cut off.
‘Pumping the mascara wand makes for easier application.’
Chapman sees it all the time — women pumping their mascara wands to get more product on them.
What they’re actually doing is pumping more air into the tube, causing faster dry-out.
Instead, swirl the wand around as you pull it out to collect more mascara toward the end.
‘Trimming your hair makes it grow faster.’
Hafliger says setting regular trims doesn’t make your hair grow faster, but it does keep it healthier while it’s growing.
“The best place to apply perfume is on the pulse points.”
Chapman says she was always told to put fragrance on pulse points because the heat from them refreshes the fragrance.
“I always put mine on my neck behind my ears and where my arm bends and feel like it lasts much longer than just spritzing all over my body,” she says.
‘Shaving your legs makes the hair grow back thicker.’
Wrong. Mathison says it only seems thicker because when it grows back, you feel the sharp, blunt, thick ends from the previous shave.
“Sharing makeup with your friends is like swapping germs.”
Yup. Chapman says bacteria can be easily transferred from brushes, lip glosses and especially mascara.
She uses disposable wands for eyes and lips and uses makeup and brush cleansers to kill bacteria and keep her products safe.
“My advice is to not share unless you learn to properly clean your tools and products,” she says.

15-year-old donates her hair to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths. . .$2600 raised

SHANNON de Sousa, of Launceston, wants people to think next time they cut their hair.
The 15-year-old donated 35 centimetres of her hair to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Foundation this weekend, to make real wigs for cancer patients, while raising $2600 at the same time.
Now, she is encouraging others to do the same.
Shannon decided she would cut her luscious locks last year, after her then 19-year-old sister Sinead was diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
``She didn't have to lose her hair, she still had to go through radiation, but it just made me think of how other girls around Australia and the world have to lose their hair,'' the Scotch Oakburn grade 9 student said.
``The Cancer Council helped her so much. They gave her a scholarship for $1750 through a seize the day award and it really helped.
``She is great now, and in her third year of her arts law degree, in Hobart.
``So I wanted to give back to the Cancer Council.''
To raise the funds, Shannon set up her own charity website, distributed donation tins throughout the state, and talked to many individuals, schools and organisations about donation.
Donations even came from the US, Canada, Africa and England.
``At first my target was $300, but then I got over $300 so thought it could be $1000, and now I have $2600,'' Shannon said yesterday.
She chose the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Foundation to donate her hair too as it is then used to make wigs for cancer patients.
At least 20 centimetres of hair must be cut off for the wigs, and is done by putting it into a low ponytail and snipping above the hair band.
``I did start crying just realising that I was cutting it, and then how much I had raised,'' Shannon said.
``But they were tears of joy.
``We have a family friend who had cancer and her hair still hasn't grown back after so many years, I know mine will grow back, but their's never will.
``I really like it.''``It's a waste to just chuck it out.

Rihanna News That You May Have Missed:


There was a time when Rihanna seemed to be buddy-buddy with U.K. retailer Topshop, but at the moment, the friendship has been put on ice. The singer is currently suing the brand for using a picture of her face on a T-shirt without her consent. The fashion outlet (WWD) reports that unlike the U.S., "there is no right of personality" in the U.K., meaning that Topshop's use of Rihanna's photo is fair game — as long as the company purchased it, of course. 

RiRi does not quite see it the same way, as using a celebrity's image does suggest an endorsement by association. Which may or may not be okay, but, hey, you should ask first. The suit will be officially addressed at Her Majesty’s High Court of Justice this summer, where a decision will need to be made as to whether Rihanna has the right to know where her celebrity is being used...or if U.K. law rules.

As Usual

Rihanna's Switzerland Acne Road Petite White Leather Jacket and Black Azzedine Alaia Jumpsuit

Rihanna does it for me. To me, it seems as though Rihanna's outfits get better and better over time. She wore this simple ensemble in Zurich, Switzerland. Here, she is pictured wearing an Azzedine Alaia black jumpsuit, Rihanna for River Island sandals, and an Acne Road Petite White Leather Jacket.  Rihanna definitely knows how to rock black and white!

BET Awards Red Carpet 2013 Best Dressed List

Meagan Good looked super STUNNING on tonights Red Carpet. Meagan’s long-sleeved blue dressed was simple but sexy hugging her in all the right places. Many people are saying this dress was inappropriate for the award she was presenting and because her husband is a preacher. How do you feel about this dress?
Adrienne Bailon here in a red one shoulder gown that is pulled in at the waist. Even though the blue on her shoes is different than the blue on her earrings, she made it come together. I think she worked this look from her to dress to her pose! You could tell she was red carpet ready!

We all waited to see how Miguel would redeem himself from his leg-drop incident and definitely did not let us down. All of his looks tonight were bomb, except one, but this red carpet look made up for it. Miguel's cool-kid style always has us lost for words and this look left me with one word: DOPE!

I love Cici's new look. She shows everybody how to rock blonde hair the right way. Sometimes she changes the length but I love the super short bob on her. Cool new hairstyle that matches her cool new style! Ciara wore a leather top, that may be Saint Laurent, and a leather pencil skirt to match. She then wore silver pointy-toe pumps to add to the edge.

These two gentlemen decided to not dress formal or over the top and pulled out their kicks. Jacob Latimore (pictured on the left) decided to bring out his Guiseppe Zanotti's & Nelly (pictured on the right) decided to pull out his classic Air Jordan  3's.

Kanye Wearing A Crop Top?! Rumor!

This picture taken in 2010 had the internet buzzing in April. All rumors are cleared. It is NOT a crop top! I repeat.. NOT a crop top! It's actually a brown leather belt that is the same shade of brown as Ye's skin tone and not his stomach. Kanye is a man of many looks but he would never stoop that low.

DVF Opens Up A New Shop In Manhattan!

Diane Von Furstenberg

The first Diane von Furstenberg accessories shop opened last week in the gallery space of DVF headquarters at 440 West 14th Street in Manhattan. Located just steps away from the High Line in the Meatpacking District, the accessories shop windows are decorated with fluorescent lips — a DVF signature — and mannequins wearing different iterations of the iconic wrap dress. Lipstick lips are also used on the walls like wallpaper. There’s pink carpeting and a heart-shaped pouf covered in a black-and white print.

The pre-fall accessories collection is sold at the shop, including the weekend-ready On the Go Tote and 440 Top Handle Satchel, which was notably carried by Beyoncé. Mini bags such as the quilted Milo and the 440 Mini are also sold, along with small leather goods such as iPhone cases, wallets and wristlets. The designer’s chunky sandals and wedges are displayed on metal and glass fixtures.

“Accessories are really important to the company and this is the first shop we have dedicated to only accessories,” said Diane von Furstenberg. “We thought it was a great way to highlight our favorite styles…and to celebrate summer.” Von Furstenberg published a map of the High Line listing her favorite stops along the stroll.

Isabel Marant x H&M

The Paris-based designer — who is creating her first looks for men and youngsters as H&M’s next guest designer — said he even gave her feedback on the scale of prints on the prototypes.

The range for girls and boys spans about 30 items of clothing and 10 accessories, and is sized, European style, by height — from 134 to 170 centimeters (roughly size 9 to 15 in the U.S.).

Marant declined to reveal fashion details of the one-off collection that will debut on Nov. 14 in more than 250 H&M locations and online. But the core women’s range — spanning 42 apparel references and 10 accessories, including shoes — revisits signature designs from the past five years, reworked and updated to create a coherent message.

Trendy 'Do's!

Two MAJOR trends this Spring/Summer: Black and white outfits and blonde hair with visible dark roots. Some of us may be too scared to color our hair. Especially since some of our hair wont take color unless we bleach it. Even though this is DOPE trend, it is ok to pass this one up! Try the black and white trend instead. You can never go wrong with a simple black and white ensemble. When I say simple, I mean simple at its finest! Ciara paired her Givenchy Dog Badge HPG Rottweiler T-Shirt with a pair of Jordan "Playoff" 12s. Rihanna wore over-the-knee boots from Tom Ford's Autumn Winter 2013 collection with Chanel cuffs and a white leather Trapstar piece.
