Like you, I was very impatient to see all the red carpet and after-party outfits at the VMAs. Here’s the full gallery you’ve been waiting for. Pick your faves!

My take:

Rihanna worked it in that white dress. The new cut is doing her all sorts of justice. Love it to bits. Make up is flawless.  Taylor Swift is brave enough to wear a suit to the VMAs,. And she pulls t off nicely. It’s what I’d do. I’ve been more into pairing pieces these days so I’d wear this in a heartbeat. Nicki Minaj am quite sure is at this point not trying to go down in history as a fashion icon. Her shoes are all am feeling on the whole get-up. Katy Perry is meh.  I fell asleep for a second there. Gabby Douglas just looks sublime. Alicia Keys, dear me, I do not like her dress. Nor the colour. Though that hair style s giving me life I must say. Zoe Saldana looks okay, nothing special. Kat Graham:  I commend the suit but it fits wrongly. And that make up is hmmm. Miley Cyrus’s hair needs a straightener. That mohawk is not working love. Rita Ora needs to crawl back into the Daft Punk video she walked out of. That one piece is not cool. Though I love her after party attire. Jessica Szohr must be dreaming f she thinks draping that leopard thing across her forehead looks fashionable. Amber Rose is glowing. Pregnancy suits her. Congratulations to the couple!

What’s your take?

 

Taylor Swift

Digging Taylor’s white on white suit. I’d definitely wear it.

Think sharp, Stay sharp!

Think of leather in the summer and what generally comes to mind is hot, sweaty, sticky and several other words that describe how uncomfy that would feel. But leather in the summer is actually a very ‘doable’ idea. And it looks quite fun too. For one thing, the English  summer is anything, is far from hot. And when I say hot I mean Northern Africa hot. So it wouldn’t hurt to recreate a few of the leather looks we’ve seen on the streets this summer.
 
1. Fun in the Sun!
This look lets you rock your favourite leather piece in the summer without sweating it out. Like Zoe Saldana we’ll opt for some hot leather shorts while looking effortlessly chic in this J.Crew awesome flats. Perfect for a day out shopping and having lunch with the besties. Of course a cool pair of catseye shades will always add to the fun!

2. Stand Out
This look is perfect because it is a day look that could easily be transformed into a night look.

3. Glam Chic
This glammed up leather look is very elegant and classy fit for a night out. No need to worry about overheating in this long sleeves as the summer nights are quite cool. Reminiscent of Kim Kardashian’s leather dress while she filmed a show in Hollywood. 
Which look would you be rocking? Let us know!

Autumn’s here. Cue the earth, tan, monotone, black and grey hues. However, dressing in such colour pallets does not mean we have to look dull. Here are a few pointers on how to rock grey tones without looking dowdy.

For starters, grey colour pallets often translate class and formal occasions. so if you are going to go for a grey dominated outfit make sure it’s looking as classy as can can be. Of course adding your personal touch is essential. Grey works best in three ways. You can either go grey all the way, mix several grey tones or mix grey with brighter tones. Visualize this.

1. Grey All The Way

If you are going to wear grey, go for everything grey. It might sound crazy and you might think it would appear dull but this works most of the time provided the right pieces are combined together. Bold make-up might also help in this case to kill the grey monotone.

Zoe Saldana look great in grey all the way.

Grey tones look great against olive skin.

grey looks better when you show off some skin like Zoe has done here. Covering up in full sleeves and a turtle neck in an all grey outfit kills the look instantly.

Kate Moss gives her all grey look a touch of glam with bold red lips.

Kate Moss

Ciara and Rihanna go for laid back rocker chick grey.

Ciara

Tyra Banks looks great in her skin tight grey dress and grey pumps.

2. Mix ‘N’ Match Grey Tones.

Another way to wear grey is to mix several grey tones. This works wonders especially if you’re trying to transform a dull look to a stunning one.

Rihanna plays with grey tones in this ensemble
This amazing Stretta bodycon dress is a perfect grey mix.

Another Stretta tank dress. Wow.

3. Grey Colour Blocking.

The 3rd way to update any grey look would be to colour block with other bright hues. Grey looks great with so many other colours because it is a neutral colour. So add some yellow, red, green, bright blue, orange . Whatever you feel like and make your grey look pop.

As fashion week continues, the stars continue to sizzle us with their front row and backstage appearances. Here is a glimpse of what some of our favourite celebs have been wearing to the Fashion Week. First is a very preggers Beyonce spotted around the Lincoln Centre with little sis Solange Knowles.

Love this natural glow.

Kim Kardashian looked dashing at the Theyskens’ Theory Spring 2012 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Center 548. To be honest this is one of my favourite looks on her. Just wow.

 Angela Simmons looks adorbs at the Nanette Lepore Spring 2012 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at The Stage at Lincoln Center on September 14, 2011 in New York City. I want to steal her jacket 🙂

There are no words to describe the curvacious human Barbie, Nicki Minaj who in my opinion is fast become a walking candy store. She constantly shocks at fashion week which for her is no shocker. Check out her print weave.

Beyonce is definitely not letting her pregnancy get in her way. Her fashion instinct are still in tact. The mom-to-be was spotted in a different outfit on the same day.

Fashion Week is here and so are the stars. Numerous celebs have been sighted at fashion events looking more fashionable than ever. Let’s start with Nicki Minaj. She was spotted at the Prabal Gurung show in yet one of her inexplicable fashion statements.

Angela Simmons. Don't you just want her jacket?

Rihanna meanwhile has been busy grabbing the attention of fans as she returns to her hotel from East Village. My biggest worry is, what in the name of **** are those pants?

sorry but am not loving the shoes either.

 

Poses with a fan. Aww.

 

Nice make up nevertheless.

Ciara is spotted leaving her hotel in NYC.

Only a few days ago she was spotted at the 2011 Tennis US Open chilling out with some friends.

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.
