The Nickelodeon’s 27th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards was colourful as expected. After all it’s a young, fun and fabulous award. Let’s see who made a splash:

Zendaya Coleman looked surreal in an embellished £1276 Oscar De La Renta Knit Top, cut off denim shorts and £590 Patent Calfskin Chanel Cotton Sock pumps. Her top is way overpriced if you ask me, but she looks hella fabulous. That top knot fringe plus her makeup is everything.

Christina Milian made a splash in a colourful £52.79 Nasty Gal Crystal Matrix maxi dress topped off with purple lips. Her daughter Violet looked cute in pink.

Actress Sydney Park looked stunning in a print dress and lunch box style clutch. Cute!

Is Daphne Blunt related to Kerry Washington?? The resemblance is uncanny! She looked pretty in a very trendy white ensemble.

Lea Michele was one of my favourite in this peachy lace delight from Elie Saab‘s Spring 2014 collection.

Tia Mowry gave me life in £950 Jimmy Choo Kalmar Rope sandals and a Versace two tone dress.

Ugly Betty star, America Ferrera was far from ugly in a menswear inspired Veronica Beard suit and Casadei pumps. Chic.

Bella Thorne looked divine in a green silky romper and Metallic Christian Louboutin Pumps. Nice hair!

Alexa Vega‘s Tart print jumpsuit and her sideswept waves were to die for.

Zoey Deutch wore matching prints. Hot!

Ariana Grande opted for an orange mini dress and £505 White Saint Laurent Leather Janis Pumps.

Coco Jones looked sweet in yellow strappy crop top,blue floral skirt and printed pumps.

I want this tribal print cut out design dress worn by Victoria Justice.

Kaley Cuoco jazzed it up in a print short suit which featured leather accents.

Madison Pettis is morphing before my very own eyes! she’s so grown. She looked pretty and girly in an aztec print dress. Love her shoes!

Debby Ryan looked cool in a split emerald green skirt paired with a crop top.

Kayla Brianna was edgy in an all black net ensemble with gold accents.

Kevin Hart posed with his girlfriend Eniko Parrish and his two kids.

Pharrell Williams and wife Helen Lasichanh were nothing to write home about.

Temara Melek worked that Mac Heroine Lipstick like none other in a beige combo. I like.

Dancer Peta Murgatroyd looked slammin’ in a black cut out jumpsuit.

Stefanie Scott wore a red cut out dress.

Gigi Hadid opted for laid back chic in relaxed white pants and a blue top.

Olivia Holt was cute as button with that bright pink lippy.

Kelli Berglund shone in a pink strapless dress.

Did you love the outfit choices? Who were your faves?

First off, I am trying to change the title of my Hot or Not posts so I’ll keep trying out new ones until I find one that sounds just right. Hmmm.

Secondly, I don’t watch American Idol but J.Lo’s about to change my mind…She was spotted on the set of American Idol in a red £2,390 Lanvin Neoprene Strapless Corset Dress which she dressed up with Nude Christian Louboutin Patent Pumps.Hot!

Every time I see her, I think she’s bad; then she steps out the next day looking badder. I love this dress. Red is my colour. If I had 3 grand, I’d be splashing it on this.

Would you?

 

If you’re not up for the splurge, try these super saver options:

ASOS Red Strapless Midi Dress, £45

 

Zac Posen Sweetheart Neck Strapless Dress, £438

Halston Heritage Jacquard Strapless Dress, £161

Hot mama, Amber Rose took to the streets of Los Angeles for a brisk walk with her cute son Sebastian in a Guess Black Hibiscus Floral Print Top and shorts to match. Amber kept the rest of look simple and fresh. I love this and makes me yearn for Spring. I cant believe it’s still raining! Anyhoo, Amber and Baby Bash look super cute and those cheeks are just begging to be kissed 😉

What do you think? Would you rock this?

Brit model and Made In Chelsea reality starlet, Kimberley Garner looked 80s chic at the 25 Years of Magnum Party in London. She opted for a sassy £18 Topshop Gingham Cropped Top Bralet and matching £38 Moto Gingham Print Joni Jeans. Patent red heels and a red clutch finished her look. Very cute!

 

This look works for an ice-cream evening fun party. The crop top is definitely a huge trend this 2014 so I’m liking this look. Plus it’s super affordable. Would you rock this look?

See other attendees at the party:

Vanessa White of ‘The Saturdays’ was also on hand and looked very nice.

Band members Alexandra Buggs, Karis Anderson and Courtney Rumbold of ‘Stooshe’ coordinated in black and white. Cool.

Lilah Parsons followed the crop top and floral trend in a crop top and matching floral pencil skirt. She shielded the cold in a pale blue coat and pointed white wedge heels from Mango.

Since the release of Dencia‘s ‘Whitenicious’ beauty product, the product has had a lot of mixed reviews (as expected). Dencia continues to defend her product.

Channel 4 News sat down with the pop singer and this is what she had to say:

 

‘Whitenicious’ is an outrageous name for a product which is Dencia probably picked it. the product is literally selling itself!

It’s so popular now that an interview/documentary with Oprah Winfrey Network TV (OWN) is in the works. And they are even considering paying Dencia for it. 

 

What are your thoughts?

Maggie Q‘s body is enviable! She arrived at the Los Angeles ‘Divergent’ Movie premiere in a £1855 Anthony Vaccarello One Shoulder Sheath Dress that features cut out sides embellished with gold buttons. She paired the revealing sexy dress with sky high Louboutin black patent pumps.

Well, I want to look like this at 34!

This dress is risqué but Maggie Q looks confident in it and is werking that carpet, for that alone I’d say HOT!

What do you think?

Let’s see who else was at the première:

Zoe Kravitz looked dreamy in a Balenciaga Ivory Bustier Dress. What a beauty.

Cameroon is also known as ‘Africa in Miniature’ which means it has a little bit of every African aspect in it. Cameroon boasts some of the most diverse cultures and land  and exhibits all major climates and vegetation of the continent: coast, desert, mountains, rainforest, and savanna. In the same light too, the women of Cameroon are very diverse and unique.

Miss Cameroon USA has once again launched the 2014 edition of one of our most favourite pageants. Offering beauties from various regions of Cameroon. Who are this year’s qualifying contestants? Let’s meet them:

Mission: Quality education for orphans in Cameroon. To eliminate the sorrows of the left out thousands, I make it my mission to identify desperate orphans in Cameroon and reach out to their educational needs.

To create a big brother – little brother relationship where our Cameroonians here in the USA in various fields (educators, healthcare givers, artists, entrepreneurs etc) can mentor young Cameroonians back home who have an interest in their specialized fields of interest. I call it an educational chain reaction because the guidance is not only monetary but it will create a long lasting impact as they too can mentor/pass down knowledge to youths younger than they are in their communities who have an interest in their respective fields.

AUMAZO, INC. is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization whose purpose is to empower girls in Cameroon with educational opportunities to attend high school in order to enjoy more successful lives as young adults.
AUMAZO, INC’s first boarding school is under construction in Bankondji, a village located near the city of Bafang in the West Province of Cameroon. The organizations’ current objective is to complete the school’s infrastructure and welcome the first 50 students by fall 2015.
My goal is to help them raise the walls of at least 3 out of the 8 classrooms they intend to build.

As Miss Cameroon USA, I will firstly complete my commitment to my platform by raising awareness and creating visibility to the work that AUMAZO, INC. is doing in Cameroon. I will also mobilize the resources and support needed to accomplish my goal of raising the 3 classroom walls.

Secondly, I will act as a US representative for Cameroonian girls by advocating for girls’ high school education in Cameroon. I will be their voice by bringing to light issues that affect them daily such as school fees and access to community-based educational institutions. I will also serve as the bridge between the girls in Cameroon and those in the United States and help both groups create a friendship that will translate into long term relationships through a Pen Pal program.

Her top is £162 but has sold out.

She complemented her look with Snakeskin Christian Louboutin So Kate Pumps in Nude . Hot ou pas?
