I’ve always admired Fantasia for overcoming so much in her life and enjoyed her performances when she was a contestant on American Idol. Her voice is sensational but this outfit it not WINNING. I rarely ever post fashion fails but I couldn’t resist. No seriously, there are so many things wrong with this costume that I hope she reaches out to a stylist for her next performance. I still love you Fantasia.
Here’s another angle for your viewing pleasure.
Haute Momma JLo has a fit, incredible body but this ensemble is NOT the business. I love the sequins and sparkles on the harem pants but together with the top just doesn’t do it for me. Jennifer has style but this was not her A game. Again, JLo you’ve proven time and time again that women get better and more fly over time but this is a NO.
I will admit I could use some abs like hers…just saying.
Chaka Khan, please tell me this was an accident and your real outfit was lost on the plane ride to LA? Wow, when I saw this sequined cat-suit I scratched my head thinking what happened but then I realized even divas make mistakes. Surely, the Queen of Funk had other options…right? I must say I LOVE me some Chaka but I did not love this. First off, it’s nearly the same color as her skin and it just doesn’t compliment her.
On the other hand her hair is fly! I’m adoring her burgundy mixed with rich pink hues. She pulled it off and not many stars can do that.
Just in case you didn’t agree with me at first here’s another angle so you can get up and personal with the cat-suit from the fashion morgue.

Daniel Craig wore a pair of John Varvatos shades yesterday while shopping in Manhattan with wife, Rachel Weisz! He wore a pair of V774 frames in Crystal ($240).
Below is a slide show of other fresh shades from John Varvatos for the gentleman in your life.
Singer/Songwriter/ DJ Solange Knowles handled the tunes at last night’s 2012 MoMA Party In The Garden Benefit. She was spotted in semi-risque’ yet trendy green floral-garden printed skirt that is actually half hot pant with the matching coat all by designer Flaminia Saccucci.
Solange is one haute momma who seems to be getting this whole ‘style’ thing right!

Yesterday evening I came home and found a medium-sized package on my door mat. I was so excited because it came from The Vogue Influencer Network and who doesn’t want a package from the them?
Any who, I opened the mocha colored box to find silver bag cover (pic Below).
To my delight it was a Glossy Medium Arno Tote from Brahmin! Seriously, I have been in search of a carry-all classic black tote I can take to work and perhaps around the busy streets of LA. Ta-da! I got my wish.
- zip top with double handle straps
- see Basic Strap
- front slide in pocket
- bottom feet
- interior zip pocket, jewelry pocket, two organizer pockets
- keyclip and penloops
- strap 10″ drop
- dimensions 9.5″HX13″WX5″D
“For the tote lover who needs the structure of an everyday shoulder bag, our new Arno Totes are the go-to bags of the season. The classic, carefree feel of a tote with double shoulder straps, zip top closure and bottom feet can be used for your everyday handbag as well.”
I’m loving my new black patent leather tote and trust me, I will be carrying it this Memorial Day Weekend. The classic bag never goes out of style and just doesn’t get old.
If you want one visit Brahmin and enjoy the array of colors as well as assortment of stylish bags.
My guess, is it will be hot all week. I for one refuse to over-heat if I can help plus, what better reason do I need to cop some short shorts? Well…I can’t really think of any but still I want some chic shorts that I rock through the heat wave and into Memorial Day weekend. Check out Lifetime Collective shorts starting at $65.
