Ines de la Fressange Hits The Catwalk At Age 51!!

As we all know models are a huge part of the fashion industry & usually we don't find much older models "rippin' the runway".. Well that wasn't the case when designer, Jean-Paul Gaultier hired 51 yr old model, Ines de La Fressange to strut his catwalk for Paris Fashion Week!!! Best known in the 80's for being the first model to sign with Haute Couture Fashion House-Chanel, Fressange is back strutting the catwalk giving those teeny boppers a run for their money..But who's to say that when you reach that " certain peak" modeling isn't an option??? Who ever wrote the rules for that isshh should be banished from fashion FOREVER..
Yeah, I said it.... And..If you got it, flaunt it & if you don't, well, sit back & watch from the side lines..

I'm lovin' it..

GQ MAGAZINE NAMES ANDRE 3000 BEST NEW DESIGNER!!

Ya Boy Andre 3000 has been nominated for Best New Designer in America for his preppy inspired men’s line, Benjamin Bixby.. Although, there are a few whispers floated around saying that his line may get the boot..Word on the street is that if he wins he'll receive 50k in cash & an opportunity to do a jeans collection for Levi.. Tha'ts defintely a good look for dre....Especially now if the fashion heads aren't copping Ben B's..

He first introduced Benjamin Bixby early last year, as a self-funded venture. The style of his collection is very different from what were use to by him.. It has a very clean school boy look, with a 1990's feel.. And with today's economy, I'm sure his brand would accept any funding & opportunity at this point..





Benjamin Bixby can be found at Barneys

MICHELLE OBAMA STRUTS A ISABELA TOLEDO DESIGN!!

PhotobucketAre we happy or what that Barack has sworn in to take his crown?? FINALLY!!! I know I am...We all should be delighted & filled with joy to take part in such a monumental event.. Do ya thing Barack & make us proud..


Now let's route our focus on Michelle Obama's Isabel Toledo dress.. The 4o+ designer has been in the game for a minute but now all will take notice of other pieces she has to offer.... We've all anxiously waited to see which designer would have the privilege to grace Michelle's ensemble for the Inauguration Ceremony... it's now been revealed... Do we LOVE IT??? My views, it served it's purpose for an ELEGANT 1st lady & she looked flawless minus the ugly green pumps... The jeweled collar gave her that 60's, Jackie O effect!! OK Michelle, we see you...I look forward to what else she drags out her closet.. ohhh.. excuse me, what designer is fierce enough to have her flaunt their pieces next time around...

CONTROVERSY BOUTIQUE @ PRIMAL & CELEBRITY FASHION EXTRAVAGANZA PICS!!!

Last weekend I hit up a few fashion shows & of course your girl took a few pics!!!! My first stop was Controversy Boutique's fashion show at Club Primal.. So I walked in the club dolo (thanks to my home girl Jess for ditching me last minute, )& checked out the scene.. It wasn't at all my type of party but I did appreciate the mixed crowd & the ol' skool Michael Jackson the DJ was pumping.... As I'm waiting for the show to begin, this dude approaches me with a mouth full of golds,trying to get my name & spills his drink on my clutch... At that point, I was utterly disgusted & it took all of me not to walk out... But I was there for a purpose... So I kindly walked away from ol' boy & headed straight to the stage to see the show..

KATE'S ON THE COVER OF ELLE

Photobucket
Ohhhhh, how I adore Kate Hudson's Yellow Dior Dress... The "BRIDEWARS" star graced the cover of ELLE's February issue wearing this BOLD ensemble.. I must say she wears it well...I searched to find pricing on the dress but caught a dead end... I guess not knowing the $$ is still knowing because anything Dior is way above what my pockets can dish out.. But that still won't stop my grind to add this color to my spring/summer wardrobe..
Look at these similar dresses, tell me what you think!!!
