most improved style of 2014

 

As fashion lovers, we find ourselves evolving from one trend or craze to the next. What’s treasured in our closets today finds itself chucked in the bin the next day. We are constantly reinventing our style whether we are aware of it or not. This category comprises of celebrities whose style have gone from passable or ouch to okay-now-you’ve-got-my-attention. It ranges from celebrities who have dialled down their OTT fashions a notch to those who have added some pep to their formerly snooze-worthy wardrobes. Let’s get into it!

This week’s hottest looks:

Zendaya Coleman showed off toned legs in a beige ensemble while leaving the 106 and Park Studios in NYC. These colours look beautiful on Zendaya.

 

Kim Kardashian channels vintage glam in an all black ensemble while out and about. That Saint Laurent blazer is to die for. She looks pretty here. Loving the vintage hair as well.

Selena Gomez adds edge with a ripped pair denim trousers to a cool blue jumper. Love this look. She certainly looks curvy here. Nice!

The girls of ‘Think Like A man Too’ are keeping busy! The stepped out to promote their movie at the ABC studios.

La La Anthony looked fab in a red trouser suit. I prefer this hair on her. 

Taraji P Henson looked pretty in a paisley print pleated skirt and blouse and blue sandals. Lovely.

Meagan Good wore a matching crop top and pencil skirt.

Gabrielle Union offset a turquoise dress with a red Prada tote. Hot.

Lady Gaga had a fashionable moment as she stepped out of her NYC apartment. C all me crazy but I love this dressing gown, hot sandals and curly wig old school vibe she’s serving here. Glamourous.

Fanny Neguesha looks pretty in her honey curls as she supports footballer fiance from the stands at the FIFA 2014 World Cup.

Eva Longoria arrived in style for the Taormina Film Fest in a leather ruffle bib dress and Louboutin sandals. Adorable.

Kat Graham looked summer ready in  neon coral  skirt and top at Empathy Rocks A Spring Into Summer Bash Fundraiser in Beverly Hills. Loving this look especially the eyeshadow.

Jennifer Lopez looked smashing on the Tonight Show in a £105 White Solace London Byredo Knee Length Dress with Plunge Neck.

Chrissy Teigen smized for her life at the 2014 Fragrance Foundation Awards. Get into the summer time face makeup! Gorgeous. I’d wear this in a heartbeat.

Cheryl Cole and the other judges kicked off the new series of X Factor UK. They all looked fab at the Manchester auditions. Cheryl paired a ruffle structured skirt with a white top and metallic strappy sandals.

Melanie Brown works out! She showed off her toned gams in an Anthony Vaccarello Gold Studded Viscose Blend Skirt which she paired with Louboutin nude pumps.  On the fence about the length of this skirt.

Sarah-Jane Crawford and her signature red lip also hit the carpet. I love her black and white ensemble. Simply chic.

Kylie and Kendall Jenner strike a pose at Nordstrom after book signing duties. Kylie wore a strapless navy peplum romper and Kendall rocked a lace inset skater dress. Loved both looks.

They had earlier hosted the Much Music Awards. Kylie looked sultry in a beaded orange Nicolas Jebran mini dress while Kendall was risqué in a high double slit embellished white Fausto Puglisi dress. A bit too much or just enough for an 18 year old?  Her face is pretty though!

That’s it for the day’s looks!

Who topped your list?

I got a a few email queries about sunglasses for the summer.

Well, there are three trending sunglasses at the moment.

First are are the the round-framed sunglasses which are very retro and ‘John Lennon’ as some would call them. As seen on several celebrities such as Keri Hilson, Nicki Minaj, Gaga and Beyonce. These glasses, strangely seem to flatter quite a wide range of face shapes.

These celebs are rocking the Linda Farrow eyewear range which is very popular for its luxe and high end eyewear designs.

You can the glasses from Linda Farrow for £259

Linda Farrow, The Row-£259

 

Or save with these options:

River Island Round Sunglasses, £13

River Island Round Sunglasses, £13.00

 

The AJ Morgan Sunglasses for only £12 look very similar to the Linda Farrow pair.

AJ Morgan Maddy Sunglasses, £12

 

The ASOS Half Frame Metal Keyhole Sunglasses, £8

Asos half frame glasses, £8

The Cat Eye sunglasses are very popular as well this summer. Aptly named because of how their slanted frames mimick a cat’s eyes or possible the Catwoman. Nonetheless some are less severe than others. As seen on many bloggers and celebs.

These are very similar to Rihanna’s above. Stella McCartney Peaked Cat Eye Sunglasses, £119.99

One of the most controversial and biggest pop stars, Lady Gaga has released the video of her hit ‘Marry The Night’. As usual, her videos keep us talking and guessing, looking for clues that’ll help us understand the meaning behind the video. As if. So it is not unusual that Gaga’s new video is very deep. It starts with Gaga lying on a gurney in what appears to be a mental facility. The 14 minute long video portrays Gaga doing what she does best which is being gaga. Like every other Gaga video, there is no better way to explain it than, so you’ll have to have a look for yourself.
Personally, I fell asleep watching this for the first time…though that might have been as a result of the all-nighter I did the night before and not because the video is too long and the actual song starts 9 minutes into the video…
I love opening narration though. Pure brilliant.
What do you think? Paws up or paws down?

Lady Gaga buys a hot dog.

While grabbing a hot dog could be the most irrelevant piece of news yet to be reported, it is what the hot dog grabber is wearing that actually catches my eye. Lady Gaga never fails to surprise. She is spotted wearing giant stilts that send her towering above everyone else. the ginormous gold skirt and midriff baring is only fitting for the ethereal giantess look that she seems to be aiming for.

Rihanna was also spotted leaving an office building downtown in New York City wearing a sweater and some black suede platform boat shoes.

Love this makeup!

Zahia Dehar at LAX

 Zahia Dehar shows off her figure in a sexy see through pink dress at LAX while walking her dog. Zahia caught headlines when she and the French soccer team were busted in an underage-prostitution scandal. She recently posed for a sizzling pictorial in the Italian issue of the Vanity Fair Magazine impersonating Marilyn Monroe.

Thanks for stopping by.

This year’s MTV Video Music Awards which held at  the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on August 28, 2011 in Los Angeles, California did not go down without leaving the fans in shock, or awed or making speculations. But come to think of it, doesn’t the VMA always have some surprise that will keep the media and fans busy weeks after it has been aired? So who or what created buzz at the VMAs this year? The better question to ask would be who or what DIDN’T? From Lady Gaga’s unusual (as usual) appearance and performance as her alter ego (Jo Calderone) to Justin Bieber making a red carpet appearance accompanied by his new reptile friend, to Nicki Minaj’s weird and flamboyant attire to Beyonce’s revelation of her huge bump news…the night unleashed one surprise after the other. For those of you who missed all the live (or recorded) action, here is a glimpse of what went down at the VMAs 2011.
Beyonce Knowles. The soon-to-be mama rubs her baby bump.
She is certainly glowing in her pregnancy.

Lady Gaga is known for having some of the most controversially absurd and shockingly bizarre videos in history. So she has not surprised us at all with the release of her new music video ‘You and I’ which features she and well…herself getting intimate. Her new alter ego has been introduced to us through this album. Her alter ego is a man named Jo Caderone.
This alter ego was unleashed when Lady Gaga shot the single cover for ‘You and I’ not as herself but as Jo Calderone. She is barely recognizable in those pics. I must say either the make-up theme did a really great job or that alter ego is real completely… Either way, the new music video features Lady Gaga and Jo Calderone getting intimate. How weird is that? I love the song though. Just don’t know how the video relates to it. Hmmm. Watch the video for yourself here.
And while you’re at it, meet…Jo Calderone.
