Too many sightings, so little time. Let’s get into them!

Ashanti is loving her some white dresses! She rocked yet another hot white gown accentuated by pink lips at Tina’s Forever Young Birthday Extravaganza. Are you feeling this?

Sam Faiers looked pretty at the LBD Plan Launch party in London. Love the metallic pumps and the pale blue skirt.

Badgalriri must have tonnes of glamorous dressing gowns and nighties ’cause she loves them! She was spotted leaving the studio in a pink silky nightdress paired with a denim jacket and converse trainers. I guess it’s easier to crash into bed at the of the day if one’s already wearing one’s nighties.

She later paired the denim jacket with a black dress as she stepped out for World Cup celebrations in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I need to do an album on her world cup looks!

Taylor Swift looked chic in all black as she made her rounds around NYC. Love this bag!

Keke Palmer looked fresh-faced as she stepped out for some food at the Fig & Olive restaurant in LA.

Mario Balotelli and his hot fiancée Fanny Neguesha soaked up the sun at the beach in Miami. Cute two piece there Fanny 😉

They later enjoyed some retail therapy. Fanny paired a floral mini skirt with a pair of £675 Zanotti Leather Wedge Hi Tops.

A few famous faces hit the D’USSE VIP Riser + Lounge At On The Run Tour – MetLife Stadium. Let’s see who made it:

Chrissy Teigen and husband John Legend looked cute at the tour. Love her makeup but is she naked under that dress???

Sevyn Streeter hit Haze nightclub in a slinky dress and bright red lips. Hmmmm.

Nicole Scherzinger leaves the ITV studios wearing a beaded print maxi skirt and white off the shoulder crop top. Give them face, Nicole!

Adrienne Bailon skewed all black in a leather shorts and added a denim bomber jacket for effect. Nice tour outfit.

Angela Simmons looked fresh-faced at the event. A Chanel pearl necklace accentuated a white tank and baby blue mini pleated skirt ensemble. The boots threw me off though.

Emily B couldn’t miss the chance to show off her hourglass physique in another crop top combo.

New mum Lil Kim showed off her post-baby bod in a white distressed number.


Have you had your dose of chocolate candy today?? Tyson Beckford y’all…

I was not feeling Nick Cannon’s get up at all.

The Birchbox Flagship Store Opening looked colourful and fun! Jessica Szohr attended in a cute cherry fruit printed separates.

Jamie Chung also looked cute in a £67 Three Floor Attract crossover bodice mini dress at the store opening.

Diane Kruger rarely misses. She looked fab at the Bridge Press Conference in Beverly Hills in a scallop detail dress and nude heels. Class act.

Karolina Kurkova had a bit of wardrobe mishap at the Guiseppe Zanotti Ibiza store opening. She twirled and revealed a bit too much in her Azzedine Alaïa figure-flattering knitted dress with a fitted bodice which she accentuated with a pair of Zanotti heels.

Gisele Bundchen worked a Louis Vuitton Resort 2015 print dress at the Fifa World Cup Closing Ceremony.

Pale colours are so in! Lily Collins looked ethereal as she was seen stopping by the Chiltern Firehouse in London in a mint maxi skirt, pale leather jacket, light grey pumps and bright lips. I love it.

Emily Ratajkowski served legs for days at the Ischia Global Music Festival in denim shorts, a bird print short sleeve shirt and colour blocked sandals. Sweet. 

Iggy Azalea kept it makeup free, laid back and casual as on her lunch date with le boo Nick Young. 

Seems like everyone ate out this weekend while I settled for a nice home cooked meal. Maria Menuonos was also seen grabbing dinner at Craig’s Restaurant in panel tailored shorts and caged sandals. Love this look.

Pixie Lott tried some denim on denim on for size. Love how she paired it with a blush coat and quirky heels. Gorgeous.

Who are your best looks of the day?

I’m loving Diane Kruger, Lily Collins & Jessica Szohr.

“Think Like A Man Too” premières are bringing out all our favourite faces! The New York City première was no different. Celebrities came and showcased cutouts, bodycons and high slits. Let’s see who sizzled:

Adrienne Bailon took no prisoners while flaunting her curves in a halter print dress which featured a keyhole front cut out. This is one sultry dress. But when has Adrienne ever said she loved minimalistic styling? She looks pretty here. Plus that makeup as always is on the money.


Cut outs were the order of the day. Ashanti‘s white jumpsuit boasted several stylish cut outs. Bright blonde shoulder length hair, pink lips and white pumps offset her look. She looks good.

A print structured skater and electric blue heels were on hand for Tatyana Ali. Her hair could have been better but she’s still a cutie.

Eniko Parrish is a beautiful lady. She opted for a simple LBD uplifted with black ankle strap barely there sandals. Kevin Hart looked dapper in a black suit.

Fabulous and girlfriend Emily B also graced the carpet. A little white dress was on call for Emily B.

Terrence J looked camera ready in a navy suit.

Coco rocked a bright printed floral bodycon dress with parrot-inspired pumps to match.

Morris Chestnut repped in a vest and jeans.

Who did it for you? Share your thoughts.

Happy new month ABYers! As we step into a new month, I pray that you achieve your goals, set even higher ones, find happiness, stay healthy and remain as closer to God as ever. May you have a richly blessed month. Sealed with riches.

I’ll start off this Monday by recapping some of our favourite celeb looks from last week and over the weekend.

Say what you want about Beyonce‘s new braids but she knows she looks hot in them! She posted even more pictures on her Tumblr of her latest adventures. She was spotted leaving an office building in Manhattan in a Mary Katranzou slipper print dress. The belted waist seems to be latest trick. To whit, she added a crop print belt to the dress. A statement necklace and croc bowling bag completed her look. You feeling this?

She later smized in a blush pink Burberry ensemble. Again, she featured another belt. 

Her looks have been vanilla lately but I’m so digging this yellow maxi with a front slit she wore while having fun with baby Blue. Cute!

Newly weds Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West were spotted on their way out of their hotel in Prague, Czech Republic, after attending their friends’ co-bachelor party the night before. The couple looked white hot! Get into Kim’s dark lips on that white ensemble. HAUTE! 



Kanye’s expressions always has me in stitches. LOL!


Draya Michele looked fresh in nude ‘fit at her Power Lunch event. This look is parred down and yet very sexy. What’s not to like??

Karrueche Tran partied it up in a chic black bralet paired with black trousers. A pop of yellow pumps and a healthy glow gave her look life. 

Adrienne Bailon was at the Fresh Air Fund Honouring Our American Hero in NY. I loved her lace dress and Valentino rockstud heels. 

I also loved her take on a white on white ensemble at the 2014 NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Upfronts. Need me a shorts suit pronto.

June Ambrose was also in attendance and looked très chic in a strapless print dress and flawless makeup.

Mariah Carey reminded me of Tinkerbell in her blue glittery gown featuring a V-neck which allowed for an ample display of cleavage. More is MORE for Mariah.

Tonto Dikeh looked good in a floral print dress as she stepped out for the première of their new movie ‘Musical Whispers’.

White has so been winning this season. Yvonne Nelson gave white a go in a cigarette trousers, a cute blazer and casual flats. I can dig this.

My Pretty Little Liars got together to celebrate 100 episodes.

Shay Mitchell is one stunner. She looked hot in a black cut out dress.

Ashley Benson was pretty in a  white dress.

Lucy Hale paired a crop print top with a matching skirt. Makeup was on the money.

Troian Bellisario was trendy in a white dress with lace and laser detail.

Camilla Belle looked prim and proper in a mint green dress at a Gucci event in Brazil.

Lupita Nyongo’o was the lady to behold at the annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Liberty State Park on Saturday in Jersey City. The Oscar-winning actress wore an Alexander McQueen black and white dress. She added a hat and wedge heels for full effect. Love this?

Shanina Shaik was one of my favourites at the event in a white  lace low cut jumpsuit with scallop detail. To die for! Plus she’s gorgeous 🙂

Dakota Johnson was also spotted at the 7th Annual Veuve Clicqot Polo Classic 2014. Loved her look especially her shoes. Cute and comfy!

Serena Williams and her tennis buddy Caroline Wozniacki made waves over the weekend as they showed off their bodies at the beach.

Khloe Kardashian touched down at JFK in style. Her distressed denim was set off by a sexy pair of t-strap heels.

Emily Blunt headed for the ‘Today Show’ in a gorgeous floral dress and pink sandals. Love this.

Nicky Hilton enjoyed a stroll around New York in a Zara floral pencil dress and blue pumps.

I’m always here for Ivanka Trump‘s classiness. She launched her new jewellery collection at a Du Jour Magazine party in Las Vegas. I want her rust coloured silk wrap dress in my closet now!

Country girl Taylor Swift looked pretty as she left the Naruto airport in Japan.

 Whew. So many looks. Which were your top pics?

Kim Kardashian, Shanina Shaik and Draya Michele topped my list.

Have a fabulous week guys.

I love to dazzle in a red hot number so when I spied the Go RED for Women show this morning, I was so excited to see all the red dresses that graced the carpet for the event.

Kat Graham layered a leatherette red crop top and matching skirt on a red long sleeve cotton wool jumper. Thumbs up for brilliant layering.

Kat Graham and Victoria Justice

She later changed into a white lace dress. I am love with this.

Nene Leakes looked hot in an off-the-shoulder smoking red bow dress. I swear this woman would be a ten most of the time if it wasn’t for that lace front wig…

Adrienne Bailon loves a good cut out dress. She sizzled this time in an orange bodycon cut out dress. 

Alicia Quarles doesn’t need much to stun. Her beauty speaks for itself. She smouldered in a red v neck drape dress.

Suits boss lady, Gina Torres looked pretty in a red ruffled frock.

I loved Thea Andrews’ red peplum cascading strapless dress.

Disney princess, Anika Moni Rose looked beautiful in a red satin pleated dress.

Anna Sophia Robb looked pretty and girly in a red print dress.

Colbie Caillat sure does love red. Remember her 2014 Golden Globes red carpet stunner? She opted for a body hugger red silky number this time around. Hot!

Rutina Wesley showed off her athletic bod in a red stripes dress.

Sasha Cohen (OMG is she related to Borat?!) leaned towards a red velvety low neck frock. Vintage realness!

These ladies all strutted on the runway to support the American Heart Foundation. It looked like a very fun catwalk. Nene Leakes’ runway catwalk poses cracked me up. I can watch her all day. This is what went down at the show.

This post is great for prom dress ideas.

Who was you favourite. Nene’s dress and Kat’s white lace dress rocked my world.

Enjoy your weekend!

A recap of last weekend’s hottest looks. Who sizzled and who burned? Let’s get into it.

Tika Sumpter was one of my favourite sightings over the weekend. She displayed caramel chocolate skin in a cream strapless dress paired with nude pumps at the ESPN Party. Her curly mane is to die for!

Tika later sashayed into the DirecTV Super Saturday Night looking even hotter in a white bralet top and a white cut out design see through Burberry skirt. She added a red lip to her white ensemble. Smoking!

Also at the DirecTV event was supermodel Chanel Iman who looked every bit a model in a purple bodice dress and similar colour lipstick. This colour was made for her. Chic!

I need this lipstick in my life.

Chanel was spotted at the Super Bowl XLVIII Party Hosted By Shape And Men’s Fitness before that in a white ribbed bodycon dress and nude pumps. That smoky eye? haute!

Ashanti is sporting a new blonde sideswept look. She styled it with a pair of washed denims, a white cropped tank under a tan fur snakeskin trimmed jacket at the DirecTV Super Saturday night. i think there’s a lot going on here and this look doesn’t work for Ashanti unfortunately. The blonde hair will have to grow on me but at the moment it washes her out.

She looked way better though at the ESPN party in all black leather.

Rihanna was spotted out and about looking girly in £465 Stella McCartney Warwick high-rise jacquard shorts and a matching blazer jacket. Those sandals are not for me but I love the shorts and jacket. #Serve!

LaLa Anthony, who has been busy promoting her new book, was spotted at Madison Square where she went to catch a Knicks game. She sizzled in a white jumper, distressed white denims, Louboutin pigalle spikes and hair to die for. #Slaythem!

Serena Williams looked pretty in a blue mesh insert bodycon dress at the Beats By Dr. Dre & GRAFF Diamonds special event. Her hair could have been tamer but her face is so pretty her!

Anthony Mackie posed for a still with guests.

The fashionable DJ Kiss looked cute in a black slit skirt and white top.

Alexander Burke posed at the KWL’s 4th Annual Sports And Entertainment Celebration in a hot sparkly number and Christian Louboutin metallic pumps. Nailed it.

Alesha Dixon brought some colour to Birmingham for the Britains Got Talent Birmingham Auditions. She dressed up an orange Carven ribbed Dolman sleeved jumper with a £356 persimmon Carven belted satin A-line skirt. I like this.

Fantasia looked pretty in a peachy coral dress paired with Louboutin Pigalle spike heels in white at the Sports Illustrated & Jaguar Super Saturday VIP Event at The Diageo Liquid Cellar.

As the Grammy Awards draw nearer, these pre-Grammy parties keep spewing left, right and centre and I am barely managing to keep up! Nevertheless, I’ll feature what I can.

The Roc Nation brunch went down yesterday and some noteworthy faces graced the event.

Willow Smith is so pretty! Her style is effortless and she seemed enviably so at the Roc Nation brunch in an ‘Aint No Wifey’ crop tee and a fringed skirt. Love her curly ‘fro too.

Happy Friday loves! Who’s looking forward to the long weekend? yep, it’s a bank holiday kinda weekend. Whoop, whoop! We’re ending this week with yet another Instagram inspired trend: Selfies. A selfie is a picture of yourself taken by yourself. They have been every girl’s obsession in the past few months or so. Raise your hands of you haven’t seen people on the bus, train, streets, office, public toilets with phones held out on stretched out arms and pouted lips posing for that all important selfie. No hands…? i thought as much.

Well, our faithful celebs love their selfies too. Here’s the first of many selfie collections to be featured on ABY’s new weekly regular Selfie Fridays.

Nollywood A-Lister, Rita Dominic served a ‘fine-girl-no-pimple’ worthy selfie this week. Loving that lip colour. She’s the queen of big curly weaves. i wonder if she’ll ever spill her source…Been looking for the right one so bad.
