A*cute Do-over: How I Would Have Styled Lala for the BET Awards

by Jackie

I love Lala, but I hate do not love her look for the 2012 BET Awards.

Lala’s curvy figure was tragically shrouded by this glitter encrusted onesie and her usually well-coiffed mane was held hostage by a wilted fish-tail braid.

If I were Lala’s stylist, I would have dressed her in a hip-hugging dress that showed off her shape and made her look like she was presenting at an awards show, not playing Star Wars with her adorable son.

Parker Embellished Short Sleeve V-Neck Dress

French Connection Banded Cap Sleeve Minidress

Herve Leger One Shoulder Bandage Dress

I would have also had her hair styled and flowing, as it usually is.

I don’t know what Lala’s stylist was thinking, or if he/she was thinking at all. The reality TV star is usually on point. I guess we all have our down days.

Heavy Metal

by Jackie

FLOTUS could pull off wearing a potato sack.

FLOTUS Michelle Obama shined [literally] in a Wes Gordon metal tunic at the 2012 Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards.

I am a big fan of metal; it gives a rock star edge to any look. Check out my heavy metal wishlist inspired by the First Lady’s winning outfit!

Get The Look: La La’s Latina Magazine Cover

by Jackie

If I could capture the couple of spring-like days that we had this week and put it in a picture, it would look like La La’s Latina Magazine cover. Full of color, the photo is spot on for what I want my spring wardrobe to look like.

Day to Night Glam with Mel B

by Sherria

Former Spice Girl, Melanie Brown, attended Gotham Hall in New York City last week for the Escape To Total Awards event and private concert. Noticeably thinner after giving birth in September, Melanie wore two glamourous gowns. The top portion of the cream gown resembles a sheath dress and the criss cross black dress worn on the red carpet was elegant and sleek. Inspired by both looks, I put together two sets that could be worn in the workplace as well as a night on the town.

In the Office:

I usually wear brightly colored jewelry with solid neutral colored dresses.

Cream & Colors
Midnight Glamour:
Use faux eyelashes and designer perfume to feel like a superstar the entire night!
