Spotted at the ongoing Paris Fashion Week, new parents Kanye West and Kim Kardashian didn't just flaunt their love as a couple but also their newly found 'fashion/style'. Kimye were out and about from fashion shows to all around Paris wearing......oh well, you see for yourselves. My opinion, i know its fashion week and as expected you're supposed to be a bit edgy/editorial and all but seriously Kim? I mean, kanye...we can deal but kimmy.......really? Lol! What do you think about their outfits? Kim's fashion has really changed after childbirth, don't you think? See more of their Paris fashion week pictures when you click

Even though Annie has spotted very few appearances with her baby bump, i envisage quite a lot of similarities in terms of pregnancy styles with that of reality star Kim Kardashian as time goes by. Just as this sexy preggos lacy frock both of them spotted - not exactly the same apparel but very similar. Who do you think looks better in theirs? Kim or Annie?

It all went down at the BET Hip-Hop awards this weekend and oh well, i wouldn't know what to make of the fashion, lol. As expected, stars turned up on the red carpet bring their style A-game on however............you decide how their looks appeal to you. Below are some appearances i found rather interesting and yup, its particularly the brothers.
OAP, Gbemi Olateru Olagbegi shared this picture of herself today wearing a rather interesting all white ensemble. She spotted a sleeveless white peplum top with matching 'short' shorts and purse. She accessorized with all gold from bracelet to neck-piece. Couldn't really get the shoes tho....but what do you think? Hit or Miss???

Finally, shirt dresses have found its way into Nigerian fashion (its about time) and as expected, fashion forward celebrities have spotted the sexy frock.....what do they all have in common? They are thinking bright, yes yellow seems to be their preferred color. From left to right, Tonto Dike pairing her sexy cutout back yellow shirt dress with hot spiked stilettos (one of my best looks on her), Annie Idibia pairing her chiffon sleeveless shirt dress with some fierce ankle booties, Rita Dominic looks stunning in those ankle strap checkered pumps and miss Genevieve Nnaji keeps it casual in a Zara tunic. Who's are you loving the most and what do you think about the trend?
Matchy matchy ensemble on couples is gradually becoming fashions 'in' thing - If David/Victoria Beckham and Justin/Jessica Timberlake are doing why not Polikem? Big brother's most loved couple Pokello and Helikem where both spotted in this matching all white and gold studded outfits. What do you think? Did they nail or missed on this one? BTW, i love their shoes......

OMG!!! Black indeed is beautiful! Checkout gorgeous Miss Sudan as she make it to top 10 at the Miss world 2013. Goodness, i had to share because i could just stare at that radiant black skin for days. She's so incredibly beautiful and i loooooove her dress! She's got one of the most divine skin tone i've ever seen in my life. As a matter of fact, one of the most beautiful woman i've ever laid my eyes upon. #STUNNING.........
OMG!!! actress Damilola Adegbite is head to toe perfection in this ensemble! She totally wowed me with her fashion choice this time and i give it up to her. Shes got on two of the hottest colors this year - her super sexy mesh bodycon dress has got grey (love the detailing) and that burgundy stilettos are on fire. Am also loving the fact that she chose a full hair, the perfect touch of fun to calm down all that sexiness, phewww. Lol! My only concern though is that i don't think the outfit is appropriate for a premiere but nonetheless the look is exquisite. What do you think? BTW, the dress is called the crystal embellished long sleeve bandage dress designed by celeb boutique and its worth £130.00 (N32,500). You can it online here.

Dramatic title hey, Lol! Anyways, this got me thinking.....was it her hair or just wigs and weaves all along? Beyonce first debuted her pixie haircut and then 2 weeks letter, we saw the same hair bob length. Now she's back to her usual long locks. What do you think about the 'hairy' roller-coaster ride shes taken us through all within a period of 6 weeks there about? BTW, Queen B, where art thou shoes???
No doubt cutting your hair is a huge decision, infact on of the biggest decisions in ones life, Lol! As daunting as the experience may be, some courageous Nigerian celebrities have taken the huge plunge and guess what, it rocks and works. Here are the top 6 Nigerian women that makes low cut look so good, we might want to just consider chopping our locks.

Errrrmmmm, am kind of confused with this face-off tho! Wait o, does that mean Banky W's supposed girlfriend wore a bikini as a top? NO! Oh well, am having a strong beef with this two incredibly hot women here. While one is a top, the other is a bikini top but both rocking the apparel, its Andrea Manuela Giaccaglia Vs Karrueche Tran on this one, who do you think is rocking it better? This got me hallucinating Banky Vs Chris Brown, hehehehehehe!!! What do you think?

Editors are considering it as a growing trends for fall cos recently, fashion forward Nicole Richie spotted the look as well. What do you think? Would you embrace or ditch the trend?

So after several years, i decided to take the big plunge and weave my hair. For a change of look and just to take a break from weaves, i opted for the popular Ghana weaving, this style here in Nigeria is called Fatia Balogun (funny hey), anyways, i'm so loving it - i never knew it'll come out this way cos my front hair. So, that's what i'll be looking like for the next couple of weeks - i hope you like it and also get to try. Omo, no brushing, no styling.....what more can a lazy girl like ask for! Lol!

Maxi dresses are a major wardrobe stable. Every woman should own one. Dressed up or down (red carpet or street), they are a woman's go-to for either one of those very lazy days or you're just feeling extra chubby. Proven to be one of the most versatile fashion pieces, maxi dresses come in a wide range variety designs - from floral, to stripped, tube or spaghetti........they can be worn by any/everybody. Since maxi dresses could sometimes be a little plain and slouchy, why not try a few of these tips to jazz them up when next you feel like experimenting a bit.
Lol! Just for fun guys....#TGIF, Talk about a style evolution. Tt was the entertainment bloggers birthday yesterday and this picture was tweeted. It took me a while to snap to the reality that is was actually Denrele Edun and Linda Ikeji from way back in that pic. Since they both attended Unilag, i guess they were friends then and obviously now. What do you think about their looks guys? Moi, all i can say is WOW and #MoneyChangethAllThings! #BeautifulSmiles....Lol!

Two of the most powerful or should we say 'hottest' couples in world over the week have given 'matchy matchy' an entirely different definition. On the left is music mogul, Justin Timberlake and actress wife Jessica Biel at his latest movie premiere 'Runner Runner' just yesterday and on the right is Ex footballer David Beckham and Designer wife Victoria at NYFW also a couple of days back. Both power couples are rocking matching tuxedos however the ladies wearing more feminine designs. I bet you, if these stylist pair are wearing...a lot are gonna be tagging in! So, what do you think about it? Yay or Nay? and which of the looks do you prefer? BTW, Jessica's 'hand-candy' is giving me a life in that picture, WOW!
Ex beauty queen and designer Agbani Darego wore the Stella McCartney black and white compact jersey dress just last Sunday at the Glam Report TV Launch gorgeously style with a black clutch and peep toe pumps (love her chopped cut BTW) while pregnant actress Thandie Newton wore hers at the Toronto international film festival while premiering her new movie 'Half Of A Yellow Sun' earlier this month - she styled hers with minimal accessories, a lovely ponytail,box clutch and ankle strap sandal. Whose interpretation are you loving most? Agbani or Thandie? The dress retails for $795 (N127,200) BTW!

The curvaceous singer 'Nicki minaj' has debuted her racy collection for kmart taking to instagram to share some pictures. She modeled the urban collection which features bold and colorful prints, graphic designs, form fitting high waist leggings, mini dresses and the seasons trending cropped tops. Talk about Nicki in her comfort zone.......
No doubt, that is one fierce footwear but who do you think is rocking the eye catching lace-up timberland boots better? Angela Simmons and Christina Milan???
Ermmmm, maybe not for an everyday look but we can't deny the fact that blue lipsticks makes a bold statement. We've seen fashion risk takers like Teyena Taylor, Amber Rose, Kesha, Ashanti and most recently Rihanna spotting the daring lip shade. Personally, i don't think am that bold to take such a huge plunge but looking at these ladies, its not so dramatic afterall. A few brands that have offered suitable shades to the rather unusual and sizzling color includes MAC, INGLOT....to mention a few!

She wrote - “i know he's just a kid, but inspired by your denim on denim post, my sister's son“.

If there's anything the ever classy duchess of Cambridge 'kate middleton' loves most rather than her new bundle of joy and prince charming, its got to be her skinny jeans.

It might be a random picture on the internet but to me, this is African art at its best. I was so captivated by her ensemble and thought to share with you. Am hearting every single item on her particularly that head piece. I can't tie that to save my life, Lol - i've tried for years now. So what do you think guys? what are you loving most about her look? Oh, one more thing, denim shirts/jackets are great when paired properly with Ankara as you can see. *winks*

Gorgeous Miss Genevieve Nnaji as expected brought sophistication and high class fashion to the red carpet at the Toronto premiere of movie 'half of a yellow sun' - however did she totally nail the look? Her white jumpsuit is by designer Andrea Iyamah from his fall 2013 collection. My opinion, i love genny but not this jumpsuit on her - sowie! Her hair and makeup was perfection (flawless) however i feel the jumpsuit is way too long in length and baggy particularly around the hip area for someone as petite as genny. What this does in reverse is that it makes her appear thicker and stunt (shorter). As you can see, it looks absolutely impeccable on a taller person as worn by model. For someone of her frame, i would have preferred something not so high at the neck and fitted around the knees - that will better elongate her body and a visible strap sandal showing off her great legs would have nailed the look totally. Maybe a bit of tailored work would have changed this look but over to you guys, thoughts on her fashion for the event..............
First, i've got to say - you ladies are incredibly fabulous! I mean, i look at all 6 pictures and their diverse interpretations, wow - you all surpassed what i expected. Amazingly beautiful fashionista's, gorgeous bodies, from L - R, here are thier unique numbers, title as given by me and names -
1. Stylish fashion blogger Porsh,
2. Beautiful Ibukun,
3. Naturalista Irene,
4. Sweet Omozuafo,
5. Vivacious Happiness and
6. Fierce Chidebere.
You'll get to see their individual pictures tomorrow and details on how you can vote for your favorite fashionista. Thank you so much for sending in your fabulous pictures and God bless you for making this style challenge so much fun!

Move over LBDS/LWD's, the LDD's (little denim dresses) are back! I first had an eye for this rather interesting piece a while back when i saw the movie 'one day' staring Anne Hathaway (pictured above). I was so obsessed with the retro inspired dress on her, plus her pixie cut was just the perfect touch of freshness to nail the look. As bulky as the LDD's may sound, funny enough, they are super versatile and works best with most body frames. Dressed up to sophistication, down to urban.......the LDD is gradually gaining its ground to be a must have wardrobe staple. To further affirm that, fashion forward, miss Nicole Richie brought it all out with a bang just this week spotted during NYFW! See a picture below, her head-to-toe look is simply perfection!

Its official guys, GREY is the new season's color (Fall) so you fashionista's can start picking out apparels in that color family.

Thoughts! Oh, that bootie, hmmmmm........
Now this is how its done! If Genevieve Nnaji had put in for ongoing my style challenge, boy she would have won in an instant. How incredibly chic does she look in this urban ensemble! I think she reads the blog and indirectly putting in, hmmmm......Lol!

Dresses, dresses, dresses!!! Don't you just love them now! Dresses are the perfect apparel to accentuate every woman femininity! Regardless of your age, stature and what not.....this one piece apparel is always a go-to unfortunately there are a lot of mistakes ladies make while buying dresses and this in turn makes the outfit look very unflattering on them. Looking to get the perfect, well pulled together look that exudes the maximum intended glamour and sophistication in dresses? Keep these factors in mind;

Thank Jesus she finally decided to get rid of those ugly bangs, the hair was ageing her like nobody's business. Now i can gladly welcome back my stylish Kourt! She has amazing style particularly when it comes to dresses. She spotted this two apparels last week both in one night, the dress is by ASOS (she wore it and it sold out just in a couple of minutes, Na wa o) and a very sexy lacy bodysuit. Which is your best look on her for the night? Her body is insane after two kid now, isn't it!
Don't you just love when women take risks in Fashion! Even though cape dresses and sleeves was a huge trend from a year/two years back with my fashion 'it' girls like Cate Blanchett (not pictured), Gwyneth Paltrow, Katty Perry and Sarah Jessica Parker winning my best dresses of the year - no doubt actress 'Rita Dominic' still looks exquisite in this piece by Ugonna Umeruo's House of Nwocha worn just a few days back. Cape sleeves are bold, edgy and super sophisticated which i totally heart. See some interesting interpretations below as worm recently by fashionistas like Kim Kardashian, Cameron Diaz, Garcelle Beauvais and Designer Rachel Roy.

Kai! See me giving you challenge and giving out expo again, Issokay sha! Anything for my readers *winks*. Okay, so here are a few inspirations on how to style your simple white Tee shirt to win the 16k handbag courtesy Hesey Designs in my style challenge. Am not saying you should copy o just be as creative as possible! Again, my criteria are creativity edge and sophistication. Hurry, entries closes by Saturday. Good luck!
Oh dear! Why ladies? I have such a bittersweet feeling about this picture. Am so happy cos one of my most beautiful Nigerian woman 'Waje' is celebrating her birthday but this picture is just ..........! Which brings us to the question, why does your face look plastic particularly with night time pictures? I know the camera flash must have added to this but also their makeup contributed a great deal. I can clearly see Waje's contour and highlights particularly at the bridge of her nose. Speaking for myself now, i think their 'foundation' caused it!
Yes guys we do it big, courtesy Hesey designs you can win yourself this amazing handbag worth 16,000 (above) by styling a simple white tee shirt. I choose this apparel cos i know its a wardrobe staple that every woman has (hopefully) lol! See how you can qualify below
