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.

Love & Light

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.

Love & Light

The 2014 Met Gala has the best red carpet show-stopping dresses in my opinion. So I have been waiting for the juicy sightings. I’m giving you the scoop a little late today because it’s my birthday y’all!!! And the Met Gala went down last night so I missed the blow by blow.

Whew, my fingers ache! It’s award season and there’ll be loads of red carpet events to blog about. While my back still aching from sitting up all night to document all the juicy fit, my eyes are eager for more mouthwatering fashion moments. InStyle/Warner Bros hosted an amazing Golden Globes after-party. Let’s see who continued their high fashion streak and who flopped.

Keke Palmer played it down in an all black fit but still looked gorge as usual.

Meagan Good showed off her midriff in a white crop top and matching trousers and crop jacket. Her husband, Pastor DeVon was there to stamp his approval of her hotness! Loving the lip colour on Meagan.

Kat Graham flaunted her hard-earned toned bod in a sheer Michael Costello gown. Her boyfriend Cottrell Guidry was her hot plus one. Gosh, I do love a good looking couple 😉

Taylor Swift opted for risqué (for Taylor anyway), in a Julien Macdonald black dress. Whoooo. Loving this side to Taylor.

Joy Bryant is a beautiful woman but looked a little bit dull to be honest. Her earrings uplifted her ensemble though.

Molly Sims looked pretty in a satin bejewelled dress.

Maggie Q looked elegant in a well-fitted navy pant suit.

Jurnee Smollett looked sultry in a £361 black lacy Alice & Olivia number.

It’s Thursday again which means it’s about time we’re served that weekly dose of oh-so-embarrassing throwback photographic moments of our favourite celebrities.

Starting this week off is the beautiful Janet Jackson. How cute was she?! Those baby hairs and that smile are simply killing me. If I had a throwback picture that looked this good, I’d frame it.

Janet Jackson and her husband  Qatari Wissam Al Mana now.

Well, look who cleaned up her act now… Ms Keri Baby is werking that face and those box braids. 525703_559835880719093_524610144_n

With looks like this, we knew Taylor Swift was trouble.

celeb-young-taylor-swift-before

She’s certainly maintained her good looks and golden locks. See who turned heads at the 2013 MTV VMAs only last week.

Always-looking-good Stella Damasus was a trendsetter back in the day. Check out her drop-button earrings.

stella-damasus-biography

Fast forward years later. Stella still loves her some afro-curls and is even more gorgeous looking than ever. (Pictured on the left below). stella damasus

Rita Ora is no natural blonde after all! But she’s so cute and innocent in this snap.

JmqV5TffFgQl

Rita Ora blossomed into a ‘hot right now’ pop star with a penchant for platinum blonde hair, effortless high fashion and a signature red lip. I love it all!

Bruno Mars is here to add a dash of testosterone to this throwback feature. You couldn’t have missed Bruno’s curly head of hair back then.

Ebube Nwagbo and Kenneth Okonkwo aka ‘Andy’.

When she’s not in costume, Ebube prefers to work her curves in sexy Herve Leger gear.

If you’d told Tyrese Gibson back then that he was going to be love song hitmaker and eye candy for the ladies, he would have given you a good spanking.

Well, little did he know…

Omotoloa Jalade was sexy even before she started calling herself Omosexy. See babes

OMOTOLA 1 Omotol3.jpg2

Now, after 4 kids she’s still as sexy as can be. Pictured below with husband Captain Matthew Ekeinde.

If you’ve already made out who the next throwback snapshot belongs to, then you deserve an award. Hint: All he wants for his birthday is a big booty call. Still doesn’t ring a bell?
