Janelle Monáe in Christian Siriano Jumpsuit – 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

By Posted on 1 2.1K

As a stripe obsessive, I just couldn’t help but fall in love with Janelle Monae’s 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards outfit. She donned a stripe one-piece by Christian Siriano. The one piece trouser suit has been executed in the latest two looks in one trend that celebrities have been sporting lately. It features a tuxedo/bralet top and tailored multi stripe trousers. What takes this already statement look to another level are the appropriately matched accessories. Those sunglasses for me are epic. ‘Nuff said.

The 2017 Oscars happened so fast, by the time I saw most of the red carpet looks, the after party events were over. I usually find the Oscars red carpet a tad boring so instead of doing separate posts, I’ve decided to combine all of my favourite Oscars 2017 red carpet looks and Oscar parties into one brief post. What were your favourite looks? These are mine:

74th-annual-golden-globe-awards-red-carpet

For viewers in the UK, most red carpet shows hosted in America including the Golden Globes always come on at such ungodly hours. For the first time this year though, I can stay up and recap the red carpet live. Yay! So far, the carpet has looked promising. Let’s go in and find out who’s slacking and who didn’t come here to play.

Gallery: The 2014 Met Gala

The 2014 Met Gala has the best red carpet show-stopping dresses in my opinion. So I have been waiting for the juicy sightings. I’m giving you the scoop a little late today because it’s my birthday y’all!!! And the Met Gala went down last night so I missed the blow by blow. I haven’t got much time for a detail analysis of the outfits (just too many darn people showed up at the met Gala! LOL) so I’ll just use monosyllabic phrases and adjectives to say what I feel these red carpet looks. Let’s dig in:

Beyonce in Givenchy – Queen.

Jay Z – on point.

Naomi Campbell in Givenchy – She can do no wrong.

Sandra Bullock was also at the AFI Awards and opted for a subtle all nude look pairing Burberry Prorsum separates.This look would be considered quite dull in many people’s books but I like it. She looks very elegant and simple.

Gallery: The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards – Red Carpet, Performances & Backstage!

By Posted on 6 1.6K

What a weekend! It started snowing all over in England and while I struggled miserably to get home in a pair of ballerinas in that unforgiving snow; the celebs were down at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California having some real fun moments. I’m talking about the 55th Annual Grammy Awards baby. Let’s get into the good, the bad and the God forbid of it it all. 

 

Janelle Monae did not disappoint, herself that is. She turned up in her signature monochrome suit jacket from Moschino.

 

Kelly Rowland looked gorgeous in this Georges Chakra Spring 2013 cutout mermaid tail gown.

 

Jennifer Lopez wore this leg-baring asymmetrical look by Anthony Vaccarello to the …

Au Naturel: My Top 10 Natural Dos

By Posted on 6 2.7K

Having recently cut my hair for the second time, I have started to notice some rather beautiful short and/or natural hairstyles. I must admit the temptation to go completely au naturel and grow my ‘fro out is very high. This post is for and about women who are truly beautiful. Embracing their roots and rocking the natural look to the max. Many of us tend to skip from weave to weave (which is one of the main causes of an early and unwanted receding hairline by the way) because we do not know how to style our natural looks. We have no clue what to do with our bounty locks so we hide them under a weave. Sometimes our hair needs a well-deserved break. It would be nice to let the hair breathe sometimes. And the funny thing is most people actually look way prettier in …
