Solange covers Elle South Africa

Hola! Stumbled upon Solange on the cover of Elle South Africa and she looks fab! I would rock that entire ‘fit and the hair is bad! Keep killing it Solo!



Solange is Back….singing again that is…

Hola peeps!  Well our fave cool sista Solo is back with her first love—music.  It has been four years since her last album Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams dropped yet she kept busy during her hiatus.  She has DJ’ed across the globe, is currently Madewell’s fashion it girl and until recently was the spokeswoman of Carol’s Daughter Transitioning Movement *also a natural hair muse for many*.

I suppose that even with different projects going on she wanted to go back to her singing roots. Her new album in which she worked with Pharrell Williams on is set to debut in early 2013.  I can dig it…VA homie Pharrell + Solo…I can’t wait to see what they have come up with.  For now here is a snippet of her single “Losing You” which comes out on Oct 2nd.  Enjoy!


Cool Chic—Solange for Madewell

Hola peeps!  I know that it has been a minute yet life has been crazy busy for me—work, events and fashion week prep is taking up all of my time as of late.  Please bear with me as good things are to come!  Ultra-cool chica Solange has been tapped as the face of Madewell’s Fall 2012 campaign and of course she didn’t disappoint.  I think that this is a perfect match for the laid-back cool yet modestly contemporary line.  Peep how her personal stylish flair shines in the ‘fits below.  Enjoy!


reCAP—Best in Show (BET Awards)

Hola!  So, did you guys watch the BET Awards last night?  I must admit normally I don’t watch the full show but this time it was a bit different.  Eager to see the Whitney Houston tribute (everyone had been waiting/talking about it) and a glimpse of Bey and Jay (love them!) I planted myself in front of the tube and tuned in!  Well, if you missed it I am going to touch on my version of a recap—Best in Show.  Overall I wasn’t wowed by the celebs’ choices of fashion for the night so I am focusing in on the best performances (IMO), a bit of hair and anything else that caught my eye.  I hope you enjoy 🙂

Monica Brown - 2012 BET Awards - Show

Monica Brown—one of the best performances of the night.  She sang her heart out during the Whitney Houston tribute and looked gorgeous doing so in a dress from the 2010 collection of the late Alexander McQueen.

Chaka Khan Singer Chaka Khan performs onstage during the 2012 BET Awards at The Shrine Auditorium on July 1, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

Chaka Khan also sang a song for the tribute and she looked equally as fab!  Check the slim figure and that hair—beautiful!  She is giving the young and old a run for their money—we all should take note…being healthy does a body GOOD!

Jay-Z (L-R) Singer Beyonce and rapper Jay-Z attend the 2012 BET Awards at The Shrine Auditorium on July 1, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

Power couple—Jay and Bey!  All smiles…happiness is the key to a great relationship and you just can’t hate on that!

Awe look at the sistas—cute!  Love that bright fuschia on Solange, oh and the Poetic Justice braids (that you really can’t see in this pic)!

Elle Varner Singer Elle Varner poses in the press room at the 2012 BET Awards at The Shrine Auditorium on July 1, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

A shame—it’s a shame how beautiful Elle Varner is!  Peep the curlz–honey is fly!

D'Angelo - 2012 BET Awards - Show

VA homie D’Angelo made his first appearance in 12 years.  He sounded the same which was good, yet failed in the wardrobe department.  A slick suit and a little moisturizer on the natural fro would have stepped up his game.  Whateves…glad to hear his voice again!

Frankie Beverly - 2012 BET Awards - Show

Frankie Beverly and Maze brought the smooth grooves to the show.  They still got!  He won the Lifetime Achievement Award–congrats!

Tyrese Gibson - 2012 BET Awards - Show

Tyrese performed one of Frankie Beverly’s songs during the tribute to him.  He cleans up nice and sounded great!

There you have it!  This pretty much sums up my highlights of the night.  What about you…who was your fave?  Do tell…
