Vera Wang Rock Princess

For those unaware, I'm a big perfume-fan. I view it as a need versus a want. As Mademoiselle Coco Chanel said, "A woman whom doesn't wear perfume, is a woman without a future." (need I say more?) Vera Wang Fragrance will be expanding the Princess collection this spring. If the new perfume, Vera Wang Rock Princess, is anything like its sister (I heart Princess!)---its sure to be a great addition to the family. Vera Wang X Rock 'n Roll = DOPE! I bet it smells like teen spirit (Nirvana rules, lol!).

The Dream rockin' Louis Vuitton's Stephen Sprouse Collection

Your boy, The Dream, can definitely get a 10 (like Christina Milan, sitting to his left) dressed like this. This is a great way to rock the sneaker ($980 @, unlike Necole Bitchie's caption of $1500). I love the LV t-shirt with the leather jacket. Knock 'em dead Dream.

Killa Kill @ Lacroix

If you didn't know, the Paris Haute Couture Spring '09 shows started this week. One of the first to show, Christian Lacroix (aka the beast) kicked it off with his new beautifully tailored collection. Although, it was quite a hodge-podgey showing-Lacroix presented great garments. I'm loving his use of the noir models. (Check out Chanel Iman and the other one with the ashy-knees, love it! lol)

Honorable Mention from Pre-Fall '09

After critics shunned his last colllection, Alexander McQueen is showing promise of redemption for Pre-Fall '09. I love this aubergine color and his styling is magnificent, as usual. Mr. McQueen is, as always, a true showman.

(Melody Ehsani)

You've probably admired her jewelry on the likes of Kelis, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, and even the big B herself (Beyonce'). Melody Ehsani, Persian/American native of California, initially had aspirations of being an attorney. But she realized her heart was in design. After establishing a successful jewelry line, Ehsani ventured into shoes. With edgy, slick, eye-catching designs--she's sure to go from star to supernova. (

She is always impeccably styled and dressed to the 9's. And, honestly, how could one go wrong with Marchesa? But at the end of the day; is it ever okay to wear crushed-velvet? I know its J-Lo and all (not to mention she's wearing Lorraine Schwartz jewelry) but I'm on the limb, with this one. Fashionistas ring in!!!!

In 2001, the House of Louis Vuitton collaborated with glam punk artist Stephen Sprouse, to create one of the most raved collections in the house's history. Eight years later, with the genius (that is) creative director Marc Jacobs, LV has presented another ode' to hood chic. The collection includes neon-graffitti splattered speedys, keepalls, neverfulls, scarves, jewelry, key-chains, shoes, and even a skate board (Pharrell probably had one on pre-order, lol!). After launching on Jan. 9th, these limited-edition keepsakes are sure to sell-out fast. Expect to see every socialite, celebuante, r&b chick, league broad, and fashionista rocking this collection throughout '09. What a perfect way to bring in the New Year!!!!

Curtain call for

Today LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessey Group) announced the retail sector of is closing, indefinitely. According to, the website will be shutting down for six months; in effort to launch an online magazine. They cited "lack of revenue and e-commerce" for the decision. Like Young Jeezy said, in reference to the recession, "I think Bush is trying to punish us." Taking away the only website selling authentic Louis Vuitton, is indeed a form of lethal injection.

Honorable Mention....

Here's a preview from Fendi's spring '09 collection... I love it!!! Grande Chef tote $820 & Chef thong $455( There goes the rent! LOL

Tom Ford aka "Gangsta-T" store opening in L.A.

Ooh how I admire Tom Ford's gangster prowess. I'll compare it to that of Frank Lucas; in reference to strategy. Ford has been building a succesful label, since parting with the House of Gucci in '04. And, according to, he will be opening a store in L.A.---directly across from Gucci (on Rodeo Drive, of course). No one on the corner has swagger like Tom!
