Fashion & Style News: Celebrities Boost Shapewear

April 20, 2010
 Rihanna sees the big picture in shapewear.

The mere mention of shapewear can fall on deaf ears, but celebrities have been the driving force behind an increase in sales. Thanks to people like Oprah, who remarks about her Spanx and  Rihanna and Beyonce, who performed at the Grammys and American Music Awards respectively, in shapewear inspired garments, have helped brands are seeing an increase in sales.

Shapewear trends have also been popularized by television shows like Mad Men and HBO’s Diary of a Call Girl. Magazines like Harper’s Bazaar offer tips on how to build undergarment wardrobes and many women are adding all-in-one body shapers, control camis, waist cinchers and all-in-one body shapers to their undergarment wardrobes.

Among the popular brands, Spanx, Slimpressions, Jockey, Flexees and Body Wrap. Stores are also rushing to include larger size shapewear in sizes up to XXL. As people become more body-conscious, shapewear is bound to see even more sales.

Beauty: Rihanna’s Blonde Ambition ‘ Yay or Nay?

March 3, 2010

Rihanna’s striking blonde hair color is not much of a stretch for the cutting edge fashionista. She changes her look more than some of us change shoes. I always look forward to what the leggy singer will do next. She lives for the rebel in all of us.

Beauty: Get a Great Pair of Legs

November 20, 2009
The original legs: Tina Turner. 

Nothing beats a great pair of legs. Legs are the ultimate sign of femininity. There’s something about them that turns heads and makes men swoon. Whether you’re in a sexy dress, a short skirt, or a flattering pair of shorts, having the gams to go with them is hot!

How can you get a great pair of legs if you don’t already have them? Exercise, dancing, running, climbing the stairs, pilates, or even yoga. The key to great legs is all about tone. The more tone they are the better they look.

We’ve seen icons like Tina Turner keep her legs in tip-top shape for more than sixty years. No doubt she’s got the best legs in the business but Ciara isn’t far behind. This girl should have been a model with those things. And let’s not forget the leggy Naomi Campbell, her legs made her infamous, on and off the runway. Actress Regina Hall has a pretty pair too as does the girl with the umbrella, Miss Rihanna.

You remember the old saying, “nothing beats a great pair of legs.” Well, it’s still true.

CFB Photos: Rihanna Changes Clothes

November 10, 2009

“Let’s just change clothes, and go.” —  Clearly Rihanna was following her mentor Jay-Z’s advice when she was spotted yesterday in Manhattan wearing not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 different outfits.

The style-savvy pop star is getting to release her fourth studio album Rated R on November 20th. Fans also got a glimpse of the singer’s life since her much publicized domestic violence incident with Chris Brown. She appeared with Diane Sawyer last week in a highly-anticipated interview to address the rumors and speak about the incident. Brown appeared on MTV in a similar interview.

November 5, 2009
 Mrs. O is well, red. 

Michelle Obama is the latest is all about Glamour–magazine that is. President Obama’s lovely other half is featured on the November cover of the magazine for the Women of the Year issue. Pop star Rihanna who made blink-worthy headlines when she was assaulted by Chris Brown this year also made the cover cut.

Mrs. O who undoubtedly has been one of the most influential people of 2009, dishes on her life thus far as First Lady, why women should pay attention to the way a man treats his mother and how she still has a hard time saying that her husband is the President of the United States.
Miss Rihanna opens up on her ordeal with her former beau, domestic violence, the “Rihanna cut” and why its good to help other people.

You can stand under her umbrella if you can catch up with her. Fancy dinners, trips abroad, nights at the club. Pop prima donna is always on the go! I’ll give Rihanna her props, she works looks that work for her. Not too many people can pull off her style but that’s what makes her unique. This is one lady who isn’t slowing down anytime soon. We’re wondering where she’s headed to next!
