vanity fair oscar party

These awards and their after parties have gotten the best of me. I have been unable to catch up. Damn. So while I was sleeping or catching up on The Walking Dead, this happened. I spied a few outfits from the Vanity Fair Oscar Party and they were burning hot! Let’s get into all of them: Continue reading “Red Carpet Review: Vanity Fair Oscar Party”


worst celebrity style of 2014

I’ve been all about less blogging more eating and stuffing myself up lately. Sorry! But today I managed to resurface from under my duvet, dust off my laptop and carry on from where I left off. Naturally, I’m feeling super bloated after stuffing my face with all the Banoffee Pie I could find in the shops and I ain’t feeling to good about it. So I am back to pick on fashion offenders. Yes, I will be hitting the gym but I’ve got a few more days until the New Year to see that resolution come to pass… 😉

First, let’s get off steam on the celebrities whose fashion choices were not up to par this year. Whose style didn’t impress? Who was dressed to kill (the party)? Who needs a style makeover in 2015? These are my top 5 picks: Continue reading “Celebrities Who Need A Style Makeover in 2015 (Worst Dressed of 2014)”

Happy Monday lovely people! Hope your weekend was swell? Mine was 😉 Here’s a quick recap of the weekends hottest sightings and some looks I missed last week!

Lupita Nyongo’o received the 2014 Maui Film Festival Rainmaker Award at the 2014 Maui Film Festival at Wailea,Hawaii. Her blue shift dress with black straps reflected a fun and colourful holiday spirit.


She was spotted earlier showing off her toned sexy body while enjoying the sandy beaches of Hawaii. Wow.

Gabrielle Union wore a white halter neck dress and metallic sandals to the Vegas Magazine 11th Anniversary Celebration. Cute.

She wore another little white dress with sheer insets and orange pumps to the ‘Think Like A Man Too’ Photo call. It’s a white hot summer alright!


My girl Taraji P Henson was also at the photo call in a floral skater number.

Meagan Good was in a green lace dress and Louboutin nude pumps for the shoot. Pretty.

For Lala Anthony, a white blazer and a white floral dress was on call.Her ensemble was cute but it looked a bit serious for the fun shoot. Or is the hair that isn’t working? Hmmmm.

Regina Hall tapped a black jumpsuit for the shoot. Pretty alright. Wished she’s worn some colour.

The cast and crew looked gorgeous white shooting promo pics for the movie.

Jennifer Hudson donned on an embellished sequin dress for her performance at the 2014 Tony Awards. Beautiful.

Rita Ora has a great cleavage! She flaunted it in a Christian Dior little black dress while on a night out. Simple and chic.

Mum to be for the third time, Kourtney Kardashian was seen in a colourful ensemble as she stepped out for lunch.

Karreuche Tran looked chic and comfy in a crop top and denim combo for an evening out.

Jordana Brewster looked pretty in mixed prints at the 13th annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball. I liked this.

Diane Kruger also attended the ball in a lace dress. Loving the touch of pink on the heels and lips.

Emmy Rossum stunned at Stella McCartney’s 2015 Spring Presentation in a dress from the brand.Love pink lips 😉

Amber Heard also wore a Stella McCartney dress to the event. It’s all about fringe for Stella’s new collection. Nice!

Cara Delevigne and Jourdann Dunn looked like the supermodels they are.

Aluna Francis was casual and pretty in a print jumper, denim skirt and platform shoes at the McCartney presentation. Nice ‘fit. Those shoes are hot. I can’t pull them off though ;(


Mel B at the Women of Influence event donned a black jumpsuit and flawless hair and makeup. Spot on.

Alicia Quarles attended the New York screening of “22 Jump Street” hosted by FIJI Water at AMC Lincoln Square Theater in a pink dress and strappy blue heels. Beautiful lady.

Joanna Levesque ‘Jojo’ looked great in a pastel coat at the Songs of Hope X 10th Anniversary Event Benefit in Brentwood. I want that coat. Jojo has her moments and this is one of them.

Can we just say everyone looked great? 

I can’t pick any faves even though that colour on Meagan Good makes her glow;)

Stay tuned for my #Team237 Outfit Of The Day to follow.

Jennifer Hudson performed at the Carnival Cruise Lines Event at The Cutting Room on January 22, 2014. For the show, she donned a £655 Ofira Wool Jumpsuit by Isabel Marant and £699 Saint Laurent Leather Platform Harness Booties.

The jumpsuit features a plunging neckline, a cinched waist and pleats on the trousers. I love a hot jumpsuit and this is one of them. But the fitting doesn’t look quite right here.

The American Music Awards went down last night in LA. Who wore what? Let’s get into our favourite ‘fit of the evening.

White was en vogue at the American Music Awards last night. 

Miley Cyrus who just turned 21 (23 November) looked subdued and fresh-faced in a white trouser suit. Papa Billy Ray Cyrus was her plus one. Cute!

Fashion Star, Nicole Richie donned on a white cut out Emilio Pucci gown. I liked i until I saw the back of it. So risqué! She pulls it off though.

Kendall Jenner was grown and sexy in a Keepsake white strapless cut out dress. Stunner.

Kylie Jenner brought out her dark side with a full on fringe and leather ankle boots. She looks gorge.

Zendaya Coleman was a dream in a Donna Karan white ensemble and Christian Louboutin pumps.

Voice coach Christina Aguilera showcased her slim frame in a white Maria Lucia Hohan gown and Christain Louboutin sparkly heels.

Ciara looked toned in a J.Mendel gown. She’s always a hit in my book.

Zoe Saldana looked beautiful as always.

Rihanna wore her in a wrap to receive her Icon award. She’s always leading with these hair trends eh? I wonder if this one will catch on. Her skin is flawless. Her Jean Paul Gaultier ensemble fit to a tee.

Naya Rivera wore a black body keyhole gown. Sultry.

Jordin Sparks is such a beauty. She goofed around on the carpet in a spike embellished gown.

Heidi Klum repped in a lace LBD.

Jenna Ushkowitz opted for colour in a bright coral dress.

Jennifer Hudson looked amazing in a Christian Dior dress. Not her favourite look but she’s so pretty.

Rocsi Diaz was cute in a red dress.

Lady Gaga looked gorge. But she’s not gaga without her gimmicks so she brought one along…

Taylor Swift opted for a little gold dress. Her eyes. OMG.

Sexy girl group, Danity Kane were also on hand. Serving high slits, plunging necklines and sultry pouts from every angle. Werk!

Lil Mama has found solace in her favourite colour, green.

Chilli and T-Boz of TLC graced the red carpet in looks that served 2003 realness. Hmmm…

Katy Perry went for old Hollywood glam in a black gown and red lips.

Ke$ha looked great. For some strange reason I like her hair :p

Jaimie Alexander looked smoking in a black jumpsuit.

I want Emma Roberts‘ shoes and clutch.

Blogger Aimee Song  of Song of Style wowed in an embellished LBD.

I’ve missed doing my weekly sizzling out and about sightings. But our favourite fashion loving celebrities have just been slaying lately I just to rekindle this feature. Let’s see who wore what where this week.

Newly engaged Ciara graced the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show at Lexington Avenue Armory with her flawless self in a navy silk-satin drape dress with a high slit from the Fall 2013 Prabal Gurung collection. I don’t know about this crazy rumour going that Ciara is pregnant but she’s certainly glowing. Estelle was also at the Victoria’s Secret show. She worked a black leather dress with zip detailing. Knee-high boots and a turban finished her look. Lala Anthony came out to slay in a blue fitting dress, highlighted locks and a beat face. Nude Louboutin pumps completed her look. Pretty!

Meagan Good came out in a sheer LBD and black satin Christian Louboutin pumps at the the GQ Men Of The Year Party. The see through top almost ruined this otherwise chic look. Her face is gorgeous though.

Lupita Nyongo’o was also in attendance at the GQ Men of The Year Awards and shone like a gem in a £771.85 Cushnie et Ochs dusty pink cut out jersey dress. She added white Christian Louboutin pumps to her look.Get into that skin tone! And am glad she wear bright lip colours, works well for her. Pharrell Williams and his wife Helen Lasichanh were also in tow. They are a cute pair. Trey Songz and his ex Tanaya Henry came as friends. He also posed for a few snaps with Serge Ibaka, Keri Hilson’s boo.

Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka were all about letting the ladies drool… Long time no see, Kid Cudi! And Aziz Ansari.

Jennifer Hudson had a spotlight moment when she was honoured with her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The singer picked a white Stella McCartney dress and Gianvantino Rossi PVC pumps for the event. Congrats JHud! The short hair is looking nice too!

Naomie Harris was to die for at the LA Premiere Of ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ . Naomie opted for a pale blue Vionnet dress with plunging sides. The cut outs highlight her sculpted figure. Bermudez wasn’t one to miss the H&M Isabel Marant VIP Pre Shop Event at H&M. She came in this season’s plaid top, a leather look skirt and loafers from Zara.

Yvonne Nelson turned 28 and celebrated on the beach in her birthday suit. What better way? Loving the black two piece. Happy birthday Yvonne Nelson:)

What is she eating…or doing?! Nia Long stays looking young and fabulous. She slayed in classic white dress at the ‘The Best Man Holiday’ screening at the Chelsea Bow Ties Cinemas in NYC.

Her co-stars Sanaa Lathan, Melissa De Sousa and Taye Diggs also looks cute.

R.Kelly channelled Rough Copy or is it Kanye West…

White seems to be the colour of the moment. Nigerian artist, Tiwa Savage looked dashing in a white dress and well-laid hair at Annie Idibia’s baby shower.

Former “ANTM” runner-up, Eugena Washington was spotted with Daphne Joy (50 Cent’s baby mama) out at RivaBella in West Hollywood. She looks great. I loved her on America’s Next Top Model. (Image courtesy of The YBF)

Jessie J switched on the London Christmas Lights at Selfridges on Oxford Street in a red pair of trousers, barely- there sandals and a bodysuit.

There’s my round up for the week.

Who rocked your boat and who sank it?

Naomie Harris and most of the guys killed it.

 Have a fun TBT.
