Beautiful dark chocolate skin. I’ll never get tired looking at this gorgeous lady.

I found this pic of Rihanna at Givenchy’s Fall 2014 show in a veiled snap-back, a pair of Riccardo Tisci x Nike sneakers, and the Pre-Fall 2014 Striped Blazer also worn by Swedish actress Noomi Rapace. The pic was accompanied by a “who wore it better piece on Fashion Bomb Daily. It’s not so much who wore it better because both ladies look great. I think it’s more like who wore it different, and Ri Ri gets my vote hands down. Rihanna’s style looks a little Aaliyah essec, B-Girl meets high fashion where Noomi Rapace has distinguished a cool sleek menswear chic with loads of sex appeal. They both look great with just very different styles.
Chanel Iman and Joan Smalls joined Jourdan Dunn on the the third season of her online cooking show, “Well Done With Jourdan Dunn. The three beauties reminisced about that time they were all in a Beyonce video Yonce rocking it out while chatting about where they were when it dropped and how Bey allowed them to be themselves and just do their thing. Jourdan mentions a scene where she had to seduce Mrs. Carter. Check out details about her licking Beyonce’s chest and the Yonce video clip below.
Jennifer Lopez and Jourdan Dunn stepped out on the red carpet, at separate events, but wearing the same dress. Who took the look? Hears my two cents, J-Lo shouldn’t have worn white shoes with the dress because her skin tone and the white detailing, followed by white heels, made her feet disappear. Um, we need to see feet to look normal, right? She needed more of a contrast on her feet, to bring out the black paneling accents of that hot Tom Ford mini. Jourdan, you took the look in my book. (that rhymed)
It’s so refreshing to see diversity and fashion big wigs push the envelope and let in some color. To no surprise and always the front runner of diversity Givenchy has teamed up with Erykah Badu and other women of color for there 2014 Spring campaign. Riccardo Tisci, The French fashion house’s creative director has featured a numbers of people in the fashion industry that represents something other than the quintessential faces of fashion, for example, albino model Stephen Thompson. Erykah was chosen as the front runner for the Africa-meets-Japan themed collection. I say, great choice, no one else comes to my mind when I think of Afrocentric beauty. Along with Ms. Badu, Maria Borges, Asia Chow and Eboni Riley will be in the ad campaign as well.
We all should know by now that Beyonce has a vicious swag. Have you stopped to pay attention to the hipster bursting out of her. Yonce’s hipster style is one that is mixed with designer labels, sneakers, distressed denim, tanks and graphic tees. To see the rest of Beyonce’s hipster style follow the link for the other 3 pics and more.

Hey guys, I’ve been away for a while apologies, just don’t take me out of your favorite list just yet. While on the hunt for new beauty products, with an edge, I ran across a line called Keep it Pretty, accessorize with lashes and lips. They have vivid colored lipsticks in orange, purple, pink and red, along with multiple styles of designer eyelashes. I love this line.
Pink: Patent Leather Pink
Purple: Purple Scratch
Red: Patent Leather Red

While on the search for fab, fab celebs, (two fab’s for style and beauty) I came across Amber Rose, Lola Monroe, Tae Hackerd, and Blac Chyna. These ladies all share a common similarity, they are what the hip hop world refers to as video vixens, and they are a few Bad…B!t$hes. They’er image represents everything Keep it Pretty. www.keepitpretty.com So…if you were looking for a way to achieve their look, I urge you to visit this site and get what they’ve got.
While browsing a few blogs I ran across these unique pair of Nike’s that has such a luxurious look and style to them. I’m loving the new look for the classic model sneaks. The quilted look gives the Nike Cortez such a grand lux style and vibe. I would certainly buy these. The quilted Nike Cortez is a must have, in my book, right along with the classic leather joints too.
The Nike Cortez has made its way into sneaker history becoming a mold that has stayed true to its classic build over the years. The Nike Cortez Nylon Premium QS “Quilt Pack” brings us three quilted styles of the Nike Cortez. Each shoe has tan leather Nike Swoosh and heel tab that completes the look on the three colorways: Squadron Blue, Cargo Khaki, and black. The “Quilt Pack” hasn’t received a statewide release date yet, but can be spotted over in Australia at Hype DC.

K. Michelle made her way to Bala Cynwyd, PA to promote her album “Rebellious Soul” (hits stores this week) Ms. K Michelle always looks amazing. Her hair was on point as usual, swag was certainly on deck, and her make up was flawless. For her interview with Power 99 she wore acid wash high waist distressed jeans, a black cropped top with cross details, 6-inch peep toe suede booties with a flourishing gold platform and a super cute black racing jacket that set of the entire outfit.
I have grown to love K. Michelle, and I know I’m not alone. Lets think and be real for a moment, she says what we all think and she does what we really want to do. K. Michelle reminds me of my crazy beautiful cousin that will get a little ratchet from time to time. I think the the TV watching world has grown to love her not to mention the girl has pipes, and she can SANG!!!
I have searched high and low for a lash boutique that can deliver beautiful false eyelashes and lash extensions. Keep it Pretty cosmetics is one of the few company’s that I have found that offers (PROFESSIONAL) eye lash extension services done by licensed estheticians. They offer lash strips and individuals. This company, Keep it Pretty, seems to know what they are doing when it comes to false eyelashes, eyelash extensions, and the lash game as a whole. Check out the slide show below. I don’t know about you, but after watching the video below I’m booking my appointment today.
