It’s official, Fashion’s Night Out 2012 will kick off New York Fashion Week on September 6th. Hundreds of retailers throughout New York City will keep there doors open late with events ranging from celeb hosted dance parties, to serving delicious cocktails and snacks. I have been fortunate enough to participate in FNO for the past several years, and although it has not always been the best of experiences, it is definitely an experience that everyone should attend at least once!



Nicki Minaj has a clothing line in the works!

Keywords: nicki minaj, clothing line, anna wintour

Nicki Minaj is unstoppable! Not only is she an extremely talented rapper, singer, performer, and songwriter, but she seems to be working her way to be a fashion and beauty icon for our generation. First she wowed us with her Pink Friday lipstick via her MAC collaboration and most recently she has dazzled us with her  line of nail polished for OPI. (check out weSTYLE.com for some fabulous beauty tips and information on lipsticks, nail polishes, and much, much more!) Now, as reported by the fabulous Perez Hilton, Nicki Minaj’s manager Cortez Bryant says that negotiating a deal with a fashion house will be a top priority for Nicki this year. Apparently at Fashion Week Nicki became acquainted with the lovely Anna Wintour, perhaps she will mentor Ms. Minaj? Either way, I am sure we are in for a fun and colorful surprise, and I can’t wait to see what Nicki has in store for us!



Been a while since Will and Jada made an appearance

Keywords: will smith, jada pinkett, men in black 3

 

DailyMail got coverage of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett arriving at the Men In Black 3 Premiere in Paris last night. I have always liked Will and Jada-  for having such an enormous name in Hollywood, this family somehow found a way to keep the majority of their personal life a secret, which is tough to do in todays society.

 

 

The duo showed up to the premiere, Will went with the white outfit, Jada with the black-  both of which contributed equally to the winning combo.   Jada is 40, Will 43, and they’re both looking like they’re having the time of their lives.   Does Jada naturally have that body? or has she been in the gym since the last time she was spotted out by the paparazzi?   40 years old? you go girl!



(unfortunately) not in the eco-friendly way

Keywords: st. patricks day, green

I am definitely a holiday kind-of-gal, so even though I am not Irish, I definitely am on St. Patricks Day! My goal for this post was to kill 2 birds with 1 stone and find some eco-friendly green gear. Well my friends, that is harder than it sounds. I came across of a ton of “green” activities to take part in on St. Patrick’s day, but no eco-friendly green shirts! That said, I thought this tux shirt was a bit different than the cheesy sayings on all of the other festive tees, find it at Sears for only $17.99!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! Have a wonderful weekend everyone and BE SAFE!



These ladies looked ravishing at last night’s SAG Awards!

Keywords: best dressed, sag awards, award shows

Unlike previous award shows, I had an easier time choosing my fashion faves from yesterday evening’s SAG Awards, these ladies stole the show with their fabulous fashion choices!

Ashley Simpson called upon her beau’s TV show for her SAG ensemble, she looked stunning in Jenny Packham.

Emma Stone pulled off this tea length Alexander McQueen dress without looking like she was going to a tea party.

Michele Williams stuck to her Old Hollywood style in Valentino and got it right as usual, this girl is always a class act.

Angelina Jolie looked incredible in her black Jenny Packham halter. This kind of brought us back to her badass days, except with more glamour than grime.

Naya Rivera looked classy and glamourous in this Naeem Kahn gown, bearing just the right amount of cleavage.



…and I’m not talking about her erratic behavior and hospitalization.

Keywords: rihanna, fish scales, rihanna fashion

I feel like I mention this at least once a week, but in case you missed it, I am not particularly a fan of Rihanna, however I am a HUGE fan of her fashion sense, or in this case, lack of fashion/clothing altogether. This is a scaley shot from Rihanna’s new video for “Where Have Your Been”.

Check out RiRi’s sexy new video, I am loving all of her looks from her swamp thing impression to her desert chic dance off. Are you a fan of RiRi’s style or am I alone on this one?



$20 billion and that’s what you wore to your wedding!?

Keywords: facebook, mark zuckerberg, ipo, marriage

 

The worlds most talked about billionaire took his company, Facebook, public on Friday, and the following day he wed his longtime girlfriend at their private home in Palo Alto, California.

 

Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan have been dating for nearly a decade, with plans to wed when she was finally graduated from her Med School studies.  Well,  the stars aligned this past week allowing Zuckerberg and Priscilla the opportunity to host a small and private 100 person wedding in their backyard.

 

 

Congrats to Mark and Priscilla!  Congrats to Mark on his amazing rise to fame and intelligence to run with his $100 billion idea 8 years ago in his Harvard dorm room.   I understand that Zuckerberg is a simple,hoodie and jeans kind of guy; But we’re talking about buttoning the top collar, putting some starch in your shirt, and picking out a belt that doesn’t look like it just came off the clearance rack.

 

 

Here is my only issue- On the day of your wedding,  you have to put a little more effort into your wardrobe for the special day. I 100% wholeheartedly respect the fact that he is able to be the face of a multibillion dollar company, all with the closet of a college freshman-  but there are times in life when you have to put a little extra oomph into getting ready in the morning,  and Mark, your wedding day is one of them.
