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 BeyoncĂ©. 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.
