Grammy Fashion Round up

Ok. We all know The Grammys is less about the fashion and more about the music. To be honest, even less about the music and more about the after parties. 

And this year is no exception.  It seemed most stars were competing to see who could be more tacky (yes, I'm talking about you Madonna). 

But here's the roundup of the best dressed on the Grammy red carpet:

Beyonce-- a curve-hugging, white floral see-through, mermaid by Costello. 

Miranda Lambert-- the red plunging gown made her look all sultry and torch songstressey. Very nice. 

Not a fan of Taylor, but she put it together here. A silver Gucci full length gown. Say it with me, "classy is...classy."

Kacey Musgraves dazzled in this pink Armani layered dress.  It was almost enough dress to hide the bad ass back tattoo. Almost. 

And last but not least, Queen Latifah. Hot bod. Stunning off-the-shoulder little black dress. Officiated the marriages of 34 couples who love each other. What is not to love? Seriously.

First Lady Obama is Looking Fierce!

We all know that First Lady Michelle Obama is a fashion forward trendsetter.  She has worn (and looked fabulous) in dresses off the rack from Target.  She has worn dresses from diverse and fringe designers.  Heck, she even stepped off Air Force One in shorts and gym shoes.  Her dress choice for the State of the Union Address continues her streak of bold, interesting choices. She wore an forest green dress with an amazing accent belt by Azzedine Alaia.  She looks stunning! Not everyone can pull off a look like this with such class and chicness, but First Lady Obama certainly gets it done! I can't wait to see what she wears next!

Does skinny equal healthy?

Does skinny equal healthy?

According to Lindsey Vonn, it does not. In a recent Interview with Self magazine, Vonn reflects on the Metropolitan Museum of Art fashion ball she attended last year. 

She says that it was difficult to be around women who were half her size--women who have "lettuce and Diet Coke for dinner."

However, she said that she was not envious of those women because they are "skinny fat"--women who are skinny, but have lots of cellulite and are not fit and strong.  Lindsey said she felt like giving them a cheeseburger. 

"It's beautiful to be strong," Vonn admitted.  

I agree with Vonn. Don't you?

I'm on my Russell Simmons, Nicki denim, Nicki linen...Nicki Minja's Walmart Spring 2014 line

Give me all your money and all of your residual, one thing that Nicki Minaj does is certainly put her money where her mouth is. She has often talked about having her own clothing line in interviews and her songs, and she has now made it happen. This talented songstress and rapper has already partnered with MAC cosmetics a number of times, and has come out with her own perfumes, it is so exciting to see her make the bridge to clothing attire. It will be interesting to see how her clothing line will be received.  It has all the spunk and sass of Ms. Minaj's wardrobe and personality. I look forward to seeing what she does next! What do you think?

And now from the files of the spoiled and rich...

And now from the files of the spoiled and rich...

Jenny Lauren, Jewelry designer and niece of fashion mainstay Ralph Lauren, was recently arrested in Ireland for breaching the peace and disorderly conduct.  She allegedly was drunk and belligerent on the Delta Air Lines flight, that the pilot had to land the plane prematurely in Ireland. 

If that's not enough, when she was detained and arrested, she mocked the Irish authorities taking her into custody by asking them to repeat their commands "in English."

Because the locale in which Lauren was arrested does not have a dedicated courthouse, so her initial appearance was held in, get this, a tavern. 

Let's just hope the judge keep her away from the bar.

What the Hell, Elle?! Mindy Kaling..What Happened to Her Cover

Well, Elle Magazine has done it again. First, Gabourey, then Melissa, now Mindy.  What is their problem with properly honoring the women who are above a size 4?


 So, I get that they were trying to do a good they say, but it did not pan out for them...again.

Let me back up, so for the month of February, Elle Magazine chose to highlight four of television's hottest female stars, Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler, Allison Williams and Zooey Deschanel in four separate covers, which is great. 

But, what Jezebel Magazine pointed out, as well as msn, was that out of the four women, three who are white and hovering around size 0s, got the 3/4 pose shot, where as Mindy, the only woman of color, and a proud size 8, received the cropped shot (which only features her face), and here is the final kicker, her cover was in black and white, where as the other women's where in full color. 

I don't know how someone could come up with an idea like that, let alone sign off on it, but Elle has proven for a third time, that something is amuck.  It will be interesting to see how they try to spin this one.
