Omarion (say omari-HAN without pronouncing the H). My man! I think most people will feel me when I say that I kinda forgot about this dude, but MAN o man is he comin' back HARD with this look right here. Excuse you?? This right here is fresh. I'll go 'head and call this look 'the Urban Sapeur' (you know what a Sapeur is, right?). This so dope. Like, that orange trench coat.. OH MY GOD. I Gotsta have. Lemme just tell you that I went BANANAS when I found out that I actually can. Like I saw this coat in the stores and online already. Yes, my boy is rockin' ZARA. Can you believe it? Here I was thinkin' that this is just another one of them Burberry Prorsum coats I will forever fantasize about, when all this time I could just go to the mall and buy it. And you know I will. Remember them Nikes? I'm just sayin'.. They better not sell out before a brotha gets some cash though ahahahah. No, but the print and fit of his shirt,those Timbaland's underneath (I have been wanting a pair for a while now. Retro is hot!), it all works. I will need to teach him a thing or two about fit though. It's like Jiggaman said; "oversized clothes and chains, we off that." But I just want y'all to recognize the style that the black man is bringin' to Fashion Week. Can someone say Kanye West, Pharrel or Chris Brown? Nuff said!
M.O.S.: To look or not to look pregnant
At the beginning of this year I was in aaaww of Natalie Portman making being pregnant look so amazin'. She was stealing all the shine on the red carpet, which just goes to show that being skinny ain't all that! But my girl Beyoncé is just shuttin' it down! She is not having it. I mean look at her. Does this woman look pregnant? I cannot believe this is the woman who showed us a "fat belly" on stage at the VMA's.
It was such a sad day when I found out that D&G was calling it quits. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana decided that they are going to stop with their young diffusion line, in an attempt to reposition Dolce & Gabbana. From a branding point of view I completely undertand, because as much as I love and know D&G, I can't say the same about Dolce & Gabbana. Of course, I'd recognise the ads out of a million pictures within a heartbeat, but the clothes themself mostly fail to impress me. Except for their suits and blazers. I give it to them! When I finally get invited to the Oscars, I would hope to wear one of their creations. But I love D&G. Especially their sneakers. I own two pairs which now, as "old" as they are I shall treat extra carefully.
And the nominnees are... #redcarpetdresses
