Posted in Uncategorized on March 4, 2010 by Taliah

Whoa Mama! He did it and he is continuing to do it! Christian Siriano, winner of Project Runway, showcased his Spring/Summer collection at Bryant Park. His inspiration was the island of Italy, taking the colors of stone and sea and incorporating it into his line. I bloody love every piece of it.

In the words of Christian….Fierce!

Stylist Highlight: Mariel Haenn

Posted in Uncategorized on March 3, 2010 by Taliah
Ever wonder who is behind Rihanna’s incredible style? There are many celebrities who depend on their stylists to give them the glam look for the red carpets and Mariel Haenn does just that for Rihanna and a slew of other celebrities, including Jada Pinkett Smith, Ciara, Kerry Washington, and Serena Williams. She has been on the scene for years and takes credit for many editorials and trend-setting you’ve seen in the celebrity scene. She has done ads for Baby Phat, Outkast, CoverGirl, and many more. I really admire her “outside of the box” style choices and thinks she is an amazing stylist above many. Below is a cool article on her courtesy of “My Fashion Life.”

Which trends from the Spring/Summer 2010 catwalks are you getting excited about?
Some spring/summer trends that I’m excited about are bold bright colors and big accessories…lots of flowy silks, satins, and chiffons. I especially love that jumpsuits are going to be big for spring.

Who or what influences your creativity when styling your clients?
My clients influence me a lot, and many times they have a good idea of what type of look they want to achieve. Runway shows and Old iconic movies definitely give me inspiration. Grace Jones is one of the top influencers of my work.
If you could get your stylistic hands on any celebrity who would it be, and how would you style them?
Luckily I have the one celebrity I would love to work with (Rihanna) but if I had to choose some one it would be Lady Gaga. I love what she does for entertainment but I would love to bring her into a more everyday look of her creative expression.

Flashback: Van Hunt

Posted in Uncategorized on March 2, 2010 by Taliah

I fell in love all over again.

I remember a few years ago seeing Van Hunt with my bff and being swooned off of my feet by his melodic vocal chords. He has this Prince-esque vibe to him with a neo-soul twist. I’m not sure what happened to him but hopefully he is still making music.

Check out his video for “Down Here in Hell (With you).” This track ooozes sex. lol

This is truly one of my inspirations.

I am not quite sure if I’m feeling these shades but I am damn sure some influential celebrity will make them look magnifique! Rihanna perhaps?? We shall see..

Here are the “Ella” sunglasses by Louis Vuitton from their Spring/Summer 2010 collection. They remind me of the 1950’s cat style frames folks used to rock with the swing skirts, however with a modern, funky twist.

Brian Atwood 2010 Spring collection is OUT and I sooooo need a pair!

Okay, so I was browsing the web for some new designs by my newest fav shoe designer Brian Atwood and stumbled upon these Gorg pumps. They were named by the glorious, stylish house as the Loca Pump. So then, I searched for more images only to find that they will be featured on our darling, popular TV fashionista, Carrie Bradshaw, in the sequel “Sex and the City” coming in May 2010. I am admiring the whole situation, of course they styled the Loca pump with a fire attire for her petite frame.

I actually saw these hot shoes first in the new issue of In Style on the actress Morena Baccarin.
