High fashion and Rappers

I was just having a heated discussion about this the other day with a friend of mine. He was saying over and over that rappers only rock white tees and Js. I quickly informed him that rappers now have evolved with fashion. They are at Fashion Week in front rows of shows. Designers are getting mentioned in songs now for instance Tom Ford on Jay Z's new album. It is amazing. Here is an article I read today that verifies what I was trying to tell my friend.

Real Life Proportions Barbie

This caught my attention on the news this morning. I had to read about it and share. I absolutely love this idea. An artist recreated the Barbie with real life proportions of a real woman. This will be an awesome way to show young girls that any size can be beautiful not just size 0s or 2s. Please take the time to read this article. It is very interesting.

BET Awards 2013

By now everyone has or should have already seen the 2013 BET Awards show that aired June 30th. It was hosted by Chris Tucker and unfortunately I did not get to watch the full show to critique Mr. Tucker. I have heard mixed reviews about his hosting job. I would much rather talk about the fashion that happened. 

Diddy was not impressed lol 

There were so many beautiful people who attended the awards however the clothes worn by them not so much. So of my favorites of the night were Nikki Minaj for her red carpet and performance outfit from the first performance. The outfit worn for Ciara's performance was not a favorite because the pants did not compliment her hips.  Meagan Good's red carpet dress was sexy some say
too sexy for a woman married to a Minister, Jay Ellis looked exquisite on the red carpet. Jamie Foxx's red carpet look and his Treyvon Martin tribute ensemble, Adrienne Bailon on the red capet in her fiery red dress. Ciara looked amazing next to her beau, Future. As did Amber Rose and her boo Wiz.  J Cole looked good as well as his accidental twinning buddies DJ Drama and Brandon T Jackson. I know they are going to shoot their stylist for allowing that to happen.  Kendrick Lamar also looked nice as did Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade.  Below are pictures of my favs in no particular order. 

Of course there were quite a few people that also could have used some help in the fashion department. Let's start with one of my least favorite people on LHHATL, K. Michelle. I think she was going for the Slut Puppy look. She made that suit look super trampy. All she had to do to class it up was throw on a nice lacy bra or a cute corset under the jacket.  There was no need for us to see all of that hanging out. Trinidad James well the picture speaks for itself. Moving right along, Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child, poor baby should have called for June Ambrose to help her out again. Her dress looked like the church seamstress made that dress for her. Bless her heart. Everyone knows I love love love 2 Chainz but his choices for wardrobe was daring but was a miss for him. I didn't like either outfits.  Angela Simmons WTH was she going for Snow Princess.  Normally she is always super cute. That was not a good look. I don't know what Angela Bassett was going for but that didn't work either. India Arie did you get that dress from NY&Co. That was super plain countrified and boring. 

Honorable Mention: Pharrell and his ankle pants paired with the tight jacket. 

Then there were people that I neither disliked or absolutely loved.

Summer trends

Summer is approaching us fast and I know you will want to know what's hot in fashion for the summer. This year there is something for everyone. So exciting. I will share a few of my favorites for the season. 

Cropped tops 
If you can wear one of these cute shirts by all mean do so. They are super cute.

(All of the tops shown are from Forever 21)

Yes ladies they are back. Am I the only one that loves them. You want to put these on with a cute crop top or super feminine blouse. So exciting and super cute. 

Mismatched Prints
Not everyone can pull this off but when you get the hang of it you will look fabulous. Right now Jennifer husdson's stylist has her showing us how it is done.  She looks amazing every time . The key is to make sure the prints are different sizes. One large print paired with a smaller one. Or one bold and while the other is subtle. 

Luxe Leather 
I absolutely love anything leather. This summer snatch up a pair of leather or faux leather shorts. You can pretty much pair them with anything. It is so cute and it gives you a little edge. Any leather piece added to your outfit will look amazing. Try a skirt, top, shorts or just a bold accessory like a peplum belt. 

Bermuda Shorts 
I love these. You can make them super casual or dress them up for a feminine look. They are comfortable and cute  anyone should be able to pull this look. 

Peekaboo Pieces
Not of my favorites when it comes to trends but it is everywhere. I am on the fence with this one. I am, because I have seen pieces that look extremely slutty. When wearing peekaboo items you have to do it tastefully.
