Jennifer Hudson & Kelly Rowland

Jennifer join Kelly at her Miami base for X Factor judges’ week helping her whittle down the 8 contestant to 4.

Miss Rowland is reportedly very strict with her group stating that they aren’t allowed to drink alchol, smoke, talk loudly in clubs or have sex. If i was any of the lucky 4 I would totally listen to Ms. Kelly after all she knows what it takes to get to and stay at the top of your game. I’m tempted to try this myself … maybe I could be more productive in my business. However I’m sure my husband would have some objection lol



After Beyonce’s baby news i thought it would be fun to follow some of my favourite celebs through their pregnancies.

Nia Long, 40 & boyfriend Ime Udoka, 33 are expecting their first child together;
Nia already has 10 year old son Massi jr with Massi Z. Dorsey. I’m sure you will agree Nia carries pregnancy very well … She got that glow!!

Monyetta Shaw & Neyo were pregnant with baby #2 soon after having their first Madilyn who was born 2 months premature in November 2010.
Monyetta owns Emerlyn & Ester boutique in Buckhead, Atlanta. As you can see Monyetta rocks it so hard on the fashion front.

Chloe Charlemagne

This up and coming young artist is fantastic, not only is she super talented she is super sweet too. The Laila Gold team often works with media management teams to build or perfect the public image of new talent.

Here are a few stills from the 1st video shoot for Chloe Charlemagne’s first album, it is still untitled but as soon as I know you guys will know!

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.
