Celebrity Style: Thandie Newton & Alicia Keys

May 28, 2010

 Thandie Newton

Alicia Keys
Thandie Newton and Alicia Keys were dolled up for the Keep a Child Alive Black Ball in London. The slim and trim Thandie opted for a beautiful strapless black ball gown with gold fleck detail. Alicia wore a cocktail length feathered gown with a cinched waist, I gather to hide her pregnant belly (she announced yesterday that she and still married music producer Swizz Beats are expecting). Not feeling her dress or her alleged homewrecking but the Louboutins are nice.

May 12, 2010

The petite beauty who is a spokesmodel for Vera Wang’s Princess has given Hollywood a dose of her fashion sense; a mix of glam gal and bohemian rhapsody. Zoe’s natural beauty and affluent tastes have made her the cream of the fashion crop.

Style Reads: Taraji P. Henson is June Essence Cover Girl

May 9, 2010
 Essence is on the right path…

…For the moment. Maybe our complaints and gripes have finally been heard and it looks like Essence magazine has finally gotten the message: Variety is the spice of life.

The June issue is a drastic improvement, cover and content wise compared to the last several issues (April and May were great, February we really didn’t want to see Reggie “I Don’t Date Sistahs” Bush on the cover). As our only voice in glossy media for fashion, style, and beauty news, Essence will have to continue this formula if it is to withstand the era of social media.  It’s either change it up or go bust because black women have had it with the same old stories and same old stars. 

Taraji P. Henson shines on the cover in a OMO Norma Kamali swimsuit, a Susanna Galanis agate necklace, and Dannijo rings.  The most noteworthy fashion editorial in this issue, Soft Focus features America’s  Next Top Model runner-up (Cycle 3) Yaya in fashions of the blush variety, including a lavender Burberry trench coat, a really pretty J. Crew sequined silk dress and a draped beauty of a dress by Sophia Kokosalaki.

Divas is a celebration of our hottest female entertainers like Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Tina Turner, and Diana Ross. Single Man of the Month Kwame Boachie-Adeji from New York is some good eye candy, and Daddy’s Home article is definitely worth a look.

Halle Berry donned a draped gray Vera Wang dress at the DKMS’ 4th Annual Gala: Linked Against Leukemia in New York. Ms. Berry’s shapely figure definitely did this dress justice, and as always her hair was perfect. If only everyone could look this fly without even trying. We love you Halle!

They’re both talented, but who’s got the best fashion sense?

Super producer Timbaland celebrated his birthday at Drai’s nightclub in Hollywood. But which one of his R&B diva guests rocked the best look? Brandy opted for a short mini-dress with a wide belt and heels, while Ciara went Ohio Player skintight in a sleek pair of leather leggings with a sexy chiffon top. Both ladies opted for bone strait locks, Brandy with Chinese-style bangs and Ciara with the sleek center part. So which of the ladies won this fashion battle?

Ciara might just be better off as a runway model because the girl’s got legs. She was quick to flaunt them too.

What do you think of Ciara’s makeup and shoes?
