Marlo Hampton

There has been a lot of negative things written & said about my diva Marlo Hampton….. where did she get her money from?… What does she do?

I simply don’t care to know the answers to those questions… I just appreciate her fabulousness. How a person lives their life is none of my business if your cool with me, I’m cool with you; plus you gotta respect a diva that has been to prison & completely turned her life around. I find her quite inspirational and I think if most people stopped hating on her they would too; to me Marlo signifies that anything is possible.

After seeing that closet of hers on Real Housewives of Atlanta, I started thinking I need me a Big Poppa… everyone seems to have one… (lol) I’ve always thought of myself as a career woman but i also love being a mother sometimes the two roles just don’t go together. In times of scheduling difficulties I do fantasise about a wealthy man taking care of all my needs, giving me a monthly budget  that allows me to do what I love & nurtures my serious Jimmy Choo addiction. Oh to dream!

Back to Marlo; this chick is serious about fashion and she wears it oh so well. I could do with out the constant label promotions; for me there is never a need to advertise brands it’s a little low-class & a tad tacky….in my opinion but, each to their own. For me either you know quality when you see it or you don’t!

WORK IT GIRL!! As Tyra B would say….. Marlo you are “FIERCE”

BabyWatch: Beyonce

The lovely Beyonce and her husband of 3 years are having a baby …”Yippee”. Beyonce confirmed rumours she was pregnant at the VMA’s in August by rubbing her belly in that oh so special way.

As one of the few celebrities that like to keep her private life private I’m sure she wanted to enjoy her news for as long as she could but you can’t hide a baby. Whilst the baby news is fabulous I’m secretly more excited about the upcoming pregnancy wardrobe… how will she dress that bump?

Here is a taster of what Queen B has in store for us …  she wore the purple sequinned tuxedo jacket, white shirt and black trousers from Dolce and Gabbana Fall 2011 collection and being pregnant hasn’t changed her taste for super high heels.

On the red carpet she looked striking and elegant in a beautifully draped orange, silk, one-shoulder dress from Lanvin Fall 2011 collection; balancing the strong dress colour with  accessories from Lorraine Schwartz.

Beyonce kept her makeup understated with a peachy natural look

I must say I don’t always personally like B’s outfit choices but she does her thing and her pregnancy style promises to be anything but boring.

Jacqui & Tony’s Wedding- 17th July 2010

Last Minute Bride

I always advice brides to have a makeup trial well in advance in order to make adjustments & changes in a stress free atmosphere, making sure you look your loveliest on the day. Believe me .. wedding day nerves play havoc with all decision making capabilities. However our team is experienced in working in high pressure situations and welcome last minute bookings.  Even if its the week before the wedding, we may be able to help. Don’t let last minute worries stress you out. Contact us like the lovely Jacqui who was planning to do her own wedding makeup but realised 2 weeks before that she had enough to be nervous about without running the risk of looking so-so on her big day. A friend referred her to Laila Gold Beauty and we were able to produce her dream look without a trial.  If we aren’t fully booked on your date you can count on us to make you simply stunning.

Taraji …The Karate Kid premiere

Dress: Naeem Khan

The lovely Taraji P Henson hit the red carpet on Monday night for the new Karate kid movie wearing this stunning bead/mirror embellished sheath dress. The reflective black and gold dress by Naeem Khan (Fall 2010) was paired some strappy black heels by Rene Caovilla  and pewter/metallic nail polish. I’m loving her decision to leave the accessories at home as the dress is a statement piece all on its own!

Judith Leiber clutch

My favourite part of the whole look is this black beaded clutch.

In recent times Taraji has been rocking the red carpet pretty hard and looking great doing it. I love the overall look she has here the makeup and hair are understated with a bit of fun added… the pink lipstick the wave to the asymmetrical bob.

I’m not usually a fan of this tone of pink lipstick but it really suits her, I’m feeling the nude eyeshadow with the heavy liner… she is also rocking the makeup product of the moment …  false lashes (im not keen on them)

Monica… Game 3 of NBA Finals

One of my favourite recording artists Monica sang the American National Anthem at last nights 2010 NBA  Finals (before game 3) between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics; the event was held at TD garden in Boston Massachusetts. Lakers won Game 3 over Celtics with a total score of 91-84; the score is currently 2-1 in the best of 7 games to be played during the NBA Finals in favour of the Los Angeles Lakers.       … Can Lakers win again?

… Any way back to Monica!

She wore skin-tight white pants and a warm creamy coloured jacket with some very sparkly christian louboutin heels.

Monica’s hair & makeup are flawless as always but although im not hating the outfit…. it could have been better. For me, Monica misses the style mark more often than not;… I just wish she made the most of her gorgeous figure… this outfit makes her very unbalanced it would have looked better with a more fitted jacket in order to give her a shape. I don’t want to be mean because I adore Monica’s music and I’ve been a massive fan of hers since “Miss Thang” but honestly she needs a stylist… Just to point her in the right direction.

Love the shoes though!

Here is a look at the performance… What do you think?
