Everyone seem to be embracing the IT hair trend for 2014. First it was the fierce and fabulous Rihanna, then Katty Perry and now Naomi Campbell. Its a sleek neck line bob cut accompanied with full bangs. Its kinda like a modern twist to the retro Cleo Patra hair cut (without the cornrows that is.....lol). Would you wear? See more close shots below:
The sexy pop artiste was spotted a few days ago dining at the L'avenue restaurant in Paris. I think she looks amazing in this understated ensemble! Its been a while i've seen anyone look really smart in a tucked in denim pant. BTW, she is rocking that new hairdo like no bodies business! What do you think?

The very beautiful super model and entrepreneur 'Iman' is renowned not only for her perfectly structured face but also her iconic svelte figure. At 58, Iman still remains one of the most gorgeous black women in the world. Originally from Somalia, Iman is a mother of 2 and is currently married to British singer David Bowie. Her unique and carefully chosen choice in fashion has distinguished her as a icon in her own right. A particular apparel that i'd love to draw a few inspiration on by her is the Wide Leg Pants. Regardless of how she wears it, Iman seem to be a pro on this one.

The beautiful stylist spotted this really chic and stylish Iro and Buba via instagram which BTW, i'm obsessed with. What do you think?
Actress Genevieve Nnaji made a controversial statement in this sheer Deola Sagoe number last year at the Ebony TV Launch, and now, model Ojy Okpe was recently spotted rocking exactly the same. Who wore it better?
The lovely Fashion Police host spotted a men's inspired ensemble during the RuPaul Drag Race premiere. Hit or Miss? I kinda like it. Lol!

Who else but the Kardashian sisters to give us a bit of mentoring and inspiration in fashion. Aside the fact that you have to be ridiculously gorgeous to make it into this clan, a unique sense of style is highly essential to survive in it as well. From Korts distinct sense of style to Kim's voluptuous curves, Khloe's irresistible 'behind' to Kendall's endless legs and then Kylie's ever cute combinations, the Kardashian sisters are the total package. Simply because they've got it all in there, we will be drawing a few tips on how to pull off the very tricky apparel - The Long Skirt.

The second edition of Dare Art Alade's Love Like A Movie 2 concert went down last night at the Ocean View grounds and going by reports, it was a pretty outstanding show. Guest artiste, Kelly Rowland ripped the stage not only with her jaw dropping performance but also her amazing fashion. Spotting her new bob cut, she rocked a matching print cropped top, kilt and leggings completed with a pair of lace up booties. See below hits and misses from the show and red carpet below

Oh boy, has it been a hell of a day of a day or what! But before we get right into anything, let me shout out to you my fabulous readers - Happy Valentines day, hope ya'll having loads of fun? Yes, it is the big V-day and as expected, a whole lot is going down. For some reason, i keep coming across really weird things today. From an entire school being compelled to wear strictly red and white to parties on the streets and even cabs totally transformed with colored papers . I think the most surprising event i witnessed was when two school teachers exchanged sliced bread and buckets on the streets all in the spirit of Valentines day. Oga O! Not that its a bad thing, i just found it really funny. Am sure you've come across a few yourselves today. Please do share. Can't wait to hear from you. *winks*

While newly single actress Uche Iwuji went for a casual look pairing her dungaree with simple flats and a black Tee, Ugonna Omeruo opted for a more chic approach elevating the simple onsie with sexy stilettos and a deep cut body hugging blouse. Whose interpretation do you prefer?
She's been really killing it at fashion week and i totally don't mind the new bob cut - my only problem however is the part. I feel a side part rather than a center would have suited her face better? Or what do you think?
Comedian, Kelvin Hart attended the Hollywood premiere of 'About Last Night' with girlfriend Eniko Parirsh who rocked a sexy Grecian inspired dress by Designer Michael Costello. I actually really love this dress on her because i feel it was made for a taller physique unlike actress, Adrienne Bailon who wore hers in white last year during her 30th birthday. See pic below
Ayomide is an incredibly gorgeous personal blogger (Fashion Freak African Chic) with an amazing style. She spotted this very cute African inspired ensemble which i totally heart. I follow her fashion and she is simply fabulous. Do check her out here and BTW, what do you think about her outfit?

Ya'll know i'm obsessed with her right? Lol! Its really exciting to see wide legs pants making rounds this season. What do you think about her outfit?
Kim Kardashian has been seriously bashed for spotting this overly tight unflattering ensemble a few days ago (Monday) - which BTW, i think is well deserved. Like seriously Kim, really? Girl, this is just wrong on so many levels. What do you think about her fashion?
There's reality TV star Angela Simmons rocking this very racy sheer ensemble to a fashion show at the ongoing NYFW. What do you think about her outfit combination? Hit or Miss? See Adrienne Bailon in Michael Costello below.

These dahm models still manages to pull off sheer fabulousity even when they are off the runway *straight face*. Just have a look at how everyone behind her are gloomy and laid back due to the very cold weather - all of a sudden, she brings are stylish self and just brightens up the streets. Love, love especially the pop of color. That's a model from the omgoing NYFW though. What do you think about her outfit?
The ever beautiful Omotola Jalade-Ekehinde wore a vibrant green colored wrap skirt and balloon sleeve blouse to the Invest Africa Conference on the Ebony TV network with Mo Abudu last week - some will see her outfit as a more fashionable/modern twist to the traditional iro and buba. I think she looked fabulous. Her ensemble is by Nigerian label Alter Ego and it is available here at N15,000. More Pic below

The name may sound a little bit awkward but unknown to you, it is an outfit you have most likely seen on a couple of people before. Blazer dresses just as the name implies are dress designed in form of a blazer jacket to match the feminine physique. The approach to this apparel is usually very edgy, sexy, sophisticated and sometimes a bit retro. Its been on and off season in a big way for the past couple of years and i think its gradually becoming a wardrobe staple. Unfortunately, it is not one of those fashion apparel that can be pulled off by a lot of people. However, if you've got a nice pair of legs, perky tata's (cos they are mostly deep cuts), and a fierce/confident fashion attitude, then you might want to add this to your closet.

I'm sure you guys know its NY Fashion week right! The very beautiful Miss Rowland spotted a fashion forward ensemble by Houghton at the brands 2014 fashion show.

Pairing heels and socks was huge in 2012 and now in 2014, mega stars have been spotted bringing back the trend. I must admit, i used to feel disgusted whenever guys do this - i'm sure a lot of you have seen them one two many times wear their slippers with sock right? but compared to the ladies, it is really not that bad at all. As a matter of fact, i can totally see myself trying this out sometime soon. What's more exciting is, for the ladies, you can experiment with a wide variety of shoes for instance, Beyonce wore hers in a more demure way pairing a nude socks with sandals, Lupita channeled her inner 'Simbi pairing hers with flats and ofcos, the very edgy Solange shows us how its really done by opting for both print pumps and socks. What do you think about the trend guys? Would you be trying?

I personally think this is one of the best Nigerian Magazine cover i've seen in a long while. Rita Dominic looks exquisite.Well done Genevieve Magazine! Love her beaded dress!
A lot of brides worry about keeping things minimal on their wedding day, a lot of people complain about brides being 'too' sexy on their big day.....i say, wear whatever the hell it is you want! It is your day and it'll most likely come once in a life time so make it all about you. The only thing i usually advice brides though is - choose 'classic' wedding dress designs. By doing so, you'll look at your wedding pictures years after and that gorgeous dress will still be very much trendy. Topping the list of modern dress designs these days is the 'decolletage back cuts'. It is seen as a conservative way to flash skin while walking down the aisle without necessarily looking 'skanky'.
However, i'd love to have your view. Would you hope on the wagon as a bride? What do you think about the trend? Can't wait to have your thoughts!

Leave it to Rihanna to make a simple sandal look glam. Now this is the look we are used to, Edgy, fierce but still very much sophisticated. Rihanna spotted a Stella McCartney silk floral ensemble and Miu Miu embellished sandals while out and about in LA. I'm obsessed with this look, how about you?
Two very fashionable, beautiful and talented actresses, who do you think is killing the white pants better? Rita Dominic or Stephanie Okereke-Linus? I'm torn because i love Rita's hair (no Afro thank God) and Step's retro glam is giving me a life particularly the turban and shades. Lol!
C'mon girl, you even had to get a white nail polish? Oh well, the very lovely Miss Lala Anthony step out in this head to toe white ensemble - sweater, pants, pumps, clutch and even her nails - errrtin white. One thing i love about this look is that, she didn't wear a red lipstick cos that would have been too predictable. What do you think guys? Yay or Nay? Oh, just in case you're wondering, yes, she is carrying the infamous Chanel Lego purse. Another pic below
I really don't know what it is but there's just something about Solange Knowles that is so unexplainable when it comes to fashion. You dare not fault her, i mean, have a look at that third pic - can anyone wear a cropped top and midi skirt better? And BTW guys, sock + pumps (as seen in the first pic) is gradually making its way to the streets this season so watch out. More pictures from her Cosmopolitan Magazine (March) spring 2014 feature below.

Oh boy, the Caters are simply out of this world! Queen B looking fab as ever in a see through Roberto Cavalli gown made a surprise appearance at the Super Bowl bash lash night. She joined her mogul husband Jay Z on stage as they both performed her hit track 'drunk in love'. The couple got the crowd wild when they both shared a kiss on stage and afterwards, Jay Z bowed to Beyonce as she step off saying "All hail the Queen". See pic below

Well, what do know. Right after her controversial Grammy performance, Queen B is making yet another shocking statement - this time around, with her hair. She debuted her new braided blonde locks via Tumblr a few days ago. Another pic below.
