Happy Monday lovely people! Hope your weekend was swell? Mine was 😉 Here’s a quick recap of the weekends hottest sightings and some looks I missed last week!

Lupita Nyongo’o received the 2014 Maui Film Festival Rainmaker Award at the 2014 Maui Film Festival at Wailea,Hawaii. Her blue shift dress with black straps reflected a fun and colourful holiday spirit.

 

She was spotted earlier showing off her toned sexy body while enjoying the sandy beaches of Hawaii. Wow.

Gabrielle Union wore a white halter neck dress and metallic sandals to the Vegas Magazine 11th Anniversary Celebration. Cute.

She wore another little white …

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.

Sizzling Sightings: Tika Sumpter, Chanel Iman, Serena Williams, Rihanna, Chrissy Teigen and More!

A recap of last weekend’s hottest looks. Who sizzled and who burned? Let’s get into it.

Tika Sumpter was one of my favourite sightings over the weekend. She displayed caramel chocolate skin in a cream strapless dress paired with nude pumps at the ESPN Party. Her curly mane is to die for!

Tika later sashayed into the DirecTV Super Saturday Night looking even hotter in a white bralet top and a white cut out design see through Burberry skirt. She added a red lip to her white ensemble. Smoking!

ABY Style: How To Wear Nudes, Beige & Pastels

Everyone’s being going crazy for nude colour pallettes lately. The winter whites phenomena is catching on for many good reasons. First off, nudes are very delicate and feminine, adding that soft and ethereal quality to any look. It’s very subtle yet elegant and classy.

Secondly, it is a a new and refreshing option to the expected all black everything look.

It also also looks great on all skin tones when done perfectly. Flesh tone outfits in nudes, beige and pastels have looked good one everyone from Emma Stone to Lupita Nyongo’o. I have been obsessed with pastel colours and it’s tricky to pull them off without looking washed out. So execution counts big time when wearing flesh tone colours and nude on dark skin tones especially.

Here are four outfit ideas if you’re in the mood for some nude!

Hot or Not: Ashanti’s Stella McCartney Green Mesh Insert Colour-Block Dress

By Posted on 2 1.6K

Ashanti was spotted in NYC yesterday as she and her fabulous Mom stepped out to promote her starring role on hit series “Army Wives.”  Ashanti donned a £ 1,785 Stella McCartney Green Mesh Insert Colour-Block Dress with a pair of £765 Azzedine Alaïa Circle-Detail Suede Sandals. She accessorized statement earrings and a leather bolero. My verdict? Gorge. She’s glowing even though her hair team needs a good ass whooping for that (wig?) weave.

OOTD: Playing It Straight

Hey peeps! What have you been doing to keep busy in my absence? Hehe. I have not put up an outfit in AGES. I apologise. As for me, I’ve been tidying up my closet. And by tidying I mean, reshuffling. You heard that right. I’m having one of style epiphanies where you feel like you want to experiment more with your style choices and take fashion risks. And it’s really exciting!  I can’t elaborate on this now because I want to surprise everyone (myself included).

Nevertheless, at the moment, I’m loving the new trend this 2013 which so far has been dominated mainly by monochrome, stripes and two-tone. Read my post on Must-Have Skirts this season. I couldn’t wait to wear my H&M stripe blouse and mauve pencil skirt. I paired them with my Zara seriously-stylish heels which I have been so …

Best Of 2012: The Split Dress

This is one trend I’ve certainly admired this year but haven’t managed to find the time, the dress or event for that matter, to pull it off. It’s the Split Dress loves. I know it may seem vain, but I am in love with the peekaboo concept of this dress. Many a celebrity have donned this style to red carpet events but let’s pick our favourite from the bunch. 
 
1.First up is Angelina Jolie aka ‘The Leg’ who made this trend noticeable this year in the first place. It was actually after this appearance that the phrase ‘to pull an Angelina’ was coined. Angelina is jolie, to use a cliche pun. She slays when she feels like it. The minute she stepped on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards in a dark velvet dress with a thigh high split, we all knew she meant business. And that …
