youtube.com--blaynista's, this song is an aquired taste. but it's one i've taken to fully. i'm loving the "i love me" theme in it. but want to know what i'm loving more? the awesome, multiple costume changes. my favorite is the all black ensemble at the start and the creme hooded dress in the middle.

new york--according to theybf.com, this picture marks nicole murphy and her new boo michael strahan being affectionate in public. along with showing her new love off, she's also showing a very fit and toned body. did you know this woman has five (i think maybe even 6 kids!) kids? i don't even have one and my stomach isn't half as tight as this. i think she looks fabulous, although she could have done without that belt. but what i want to know is, where are the kids? we see eddy with tracy and nicole with everyone else all the time. but where are they hiding those kids? that's an awful lot of children to keep under wraps.

i'm not the biggest kate moss fan in the world. but i have to give her props for this ad. she makes me understand why every luxury label in the land has sought her out.

terrell in the gray suit shares a laugh with dhalimu who is wearing a hat by salvatore ferregamo, crushed paisley pants by etro, and vintage gazelle glasses.. celebrity stylist, alexander and my beautiful akwele! the luscious strawberry-red-velvet-shortcake which is sold at make my cake, and was created by dhalimu.
the crowd checking out the preview on a flatscreen t.v. see legendery paparrazo, johny nunez in the white t, and gold chain on the bottom right hand of the screen?
new york, ny--have you heard of the style aficionados? if not, then brace yourself! the styling duo of dhalimu and terrell is poised to saturate the mainstream shortly. and their means of doing so? two highly entertaining and totally fashionable reality shows the first of which is style aficionados the second which is almost famous- miami. the duo held a well attended launch party for both shows yesterday at bo concept design studio in midtown manhattan. everyone from antm's nole marin to editors from us weekly to mashonda (singer and wife of swizz beatz, who is a childhood friend of terrell was there. they were treated to glasses of nuvo, a new sparkling vodka on the market, slices of strawberry-red-velvet-shortcake from make my cake bakery (owned by stylish entrepreneur alyyah baylor) and goodies from the island of antigua. the well dressed audience which included everyone from celebrity stylist, alexander allen, to r&b singer and wife of swizz beatz, mashona enjoyed themselves. after the event, we sat down with mashona to get her thoughts on the event, the show and her friends, terrell & dhalimu. this is what she had to say: "the only word that can describe the two of them is fabulous. they make you look and feel fabulous." and anyone who catches their shows once they debut on t.v will agree. stay tuned to the blay report for details on when the show launches.
wait! these two know eachother? nicole of the pussy cat dolls was hand selected by valentino to perform during the showing of his pieces during the night. she looks amazing in that dress.
this dress is very underwhelming considering the hype, cost and effort behind it. suppossedly it's a replica of a dress that moss wore over 10 years ago on her first date with johnny depp in '94. it's studded with over 20,000 swarovski crystals and cost over 80,000 USD to make. it will be auctioned on ebay with proceeds going to the princes trust. if you want this dress i suggest you hit up forever 21. they have awesome pieces in this category.
THIS is my favorite dress of the evening. it's simple, sizzling, stunning and sexy. work it uma.
me no like alicia's outfit. i understand you can dress jeans/pants up. but that's no excuse to do so. especially on a classy night like this. from neck up, her and armani make a beautiful pair. but from the neck down, i am wondering what bus stop he picked this chick from?
naomi - do it! unlike alicia, she complements and completes her red carpet partners dolce & gabanna.
ironically, donatella and iggy pop make a very handsome couple.
