Luxurious Treat!

Sometimes a lady just needs to treat herself (or better yet, let a man treat you). I think these Louis Vuitton cube rings ($385 via www.eluxury.com) are a delightful treat. Super-cute, bold and luxurious--this ring could make for a great addition to your bauble collection. Love it!

Shoe of the Week

Spring is finally here. And its time to get a mean pedicure and pull out some sweet sandals. Check out the Jane sandals by Charlotte Ronson ($178 via www.piperlime.com). I love the gladiator-style and the beaded embellishment. Try these w/ chrome yellow or silver polish. Fierce! Love it!

A Neon Story

This spring is all about neons! In hues of vibrant orange, haute pink, electric yellow, and lime green---neon colors will rule this season. If color this bright isn't your thing, I suggest mixing signature neon pieces with black or white separates. Dare to be seen!

Honorable Mention: Versace RTW Fall '09

Everyone knows Versace is synonymous with sexy. And with the house's showing for ready-to-wear fall '09 (during Milan fashion week), sexy elevated to a new plateau. I'm absolutely in love w/ the color palette. Also, the fabrication is magnificent! Donatella and her creative team sure know how to put on a show. Notice the change in the background color, with each look. Bravo!

Personalized Louis Vuitton Speedy's

The house of Louis Vuitton is now customizing speedy's. That's what I call a luxurious delight. For $1,000 you can purchase your very own monogramed speedy 30 (also available in 35,40 and keepalls). LV even offers an array of colors and fonts. I think these would make for great gifts. My initials are AVH by way, lol! Love it!

Thierry Mugler for Beyonce'

Famed designer Thierry Mugler just released sketches for Beyonce's upcoming world tour. Mugler said he wanted to capture "the duality of being a woman and a warrior." By the looks of the above designs, I think he definitely attained his goal. The looks are fierce! Just like Sasha, herself. The tour kicks off today in Edmonton. Love it!

Trash & Luxury is a dope new clothing company, based in L.A. After working for Patricia Field, designer Hushi Mortezaie wanted to create a brand reflecting "contradictory realities".

Rihanna Rockin' the New Christian Louboutin Trash Shoes

Apparently, Rihanna has great taste in footwear (wish I could say the same for the rest of the get-up, tragedy!). She's seen here rockin' the brand new (released last week) Christian Louboutin Trash Shoes. Exclusively sold @ Barneys, each shoe is one-of-a-kind (made of recyclable materials). And for $995, that may be a steal for limited-edition Louboutins. These are sure to fetch big bucks on eBay. Love 'em!

Can't Be Serious....

I live by the mantra "nothing exceeds like excess" but, Louis Vuitton trashbags-these mf's can't be serious. This is when fashion meets ridiculousness. Talking about throwing money away. H8ted it!

Shoe of the Week

What's better than 4 & 1/2 inches of metallic italian leather and a peep-toe?.... Check out these open-toe booties by Christian Louboutin ($1,195 via http://www.saks.com/). Can you say killa?

Honorable Mention: Mary-Kate Olsen

Fashionista, Mary-Kate Olsen, looked super-chic @ the Met's 125th Anniversary Gala (hosted by Yves Saint Laurent). Dressed in a frock from YSL pre-fall '09, MK looked effortlessly fly. I loved the silver crocodile bag/belt ensemble. Also, the red polish and lipstick add a superb pop of color. As you know, its all about the details. MK definitely didn't disappoint. Love it!

Today marks the re-launch of MTV's House of Style (premiering at 3:00PM Eastern time). Models Chanel Iman and Bar Refaeli are set to host, along with designer Erin Featherson. HOS was, indeed, a 90's classic. I'm soooo looking forward to the premiere. So divas set your dvr's and stay tuned. Its sure to be a fashion delight.

Keyshia Cole & The Controversial Gucci Jacket

A lot of supreme fashionistas would shun this jacket but, I think its kinda dope. Yes, its a bit gaudy (Keyshia's notorious for that). Perhaps even a tad ghetto. But styled w/ the right jeans and proper shoes it could be fabulous.

Preview: Coach Fall '09

FASHION ALERT: Coach is evolving! Here's a preview from the leather-loving house's upcoming fall collection. I'm, especially, feeling the black studded bag (kinda reminiscent of Rebecca Minkoff) and the grey boot/bag ensemble. Love it!

Honorable Mention: Rachel Roy

Chic designer, Rachel Roy, attended last night's "Valentino: The Last Emperor" premiere. Mrs. Dash looked fabulous in the gold harem pants. Its hard to pull-off genie pants and a blazer, but she worked it. I'm not sure who she's wearing but my guess is Rachel Roy (obviously). On another note, the Valentino documentary is scheduled for release later this spring. And I can't wait!

Preview: Christian Louboutin Fall '09

If you know me, you know I heart Christian Louboutin. In my world, nothing is sexier than toe cleavage & a sick arch. And of course, Monsieur Louboutin, is the roi (king) of the sexy shoe (you see me getting my french on, lol!). Here's a preview from his upcoming fall collection. I'm loving the nude/noir contrast. And the lace, sickening! Love it!

Beyonce' rockin' YSL Tribute Pumps

Today, the Big B was spotted shopping @ Patricia Field in NYC. She's seen here, rockin' the Yves Saint Laurent Tribute platform pumps. She must have them in color (formerly, she wore a pair of grey suede Tribute's @ an election event). Notice the way she paired high & low w/ the addition of the Rocawear chain belt. What a way to keep it in the family... Fierce!

Kanye & Amber Rose @ Metropolitian Opera Ball

Kanye and Amber Rose were going for high-society chic, this weekend at the NY Metropolitan Opera House’s 125th Anniversary Gala. Don't be alarmed! NoirLace isn't evolving into a gossip site. I'm just dedicated to giving props to everyone and everything haute. These two, definitely, fit the bill. Bravo!

Shoe of the Week

These little ladies are so fierce and versatile. Check out these Marc by Marc Jacobs Lace-up boots ($550, also available in black via www.saks.com).

Halle Berry Rockin' Jimmy Choo

Halle Berry was spotted in Beverly Hills, yesterday, rockin' the Jimmy Choo Leopard Zip Hobo ($3,150 via www.bergdorfgoodman.com). She's look effortlessly chic and casual. Work it!

Rihanna Re-Emerges in Killer Fashion!

I love a chick unafraid to rock fur. Stylista, Rihanna, was spotted in NYC yesterday rockin' a sick-azz cropped fur sweater. She paired it w/ a pair of super-cute skinny jeans, kitten heels, and motorcycle gloves. She always serves-up fashion. Its good to see her out again. Love it!

The Big B Graces Vogue

Mrs. Carter is the new April '09 cover girl for prestigious, fashion magazine Vogue. I've yet to see the spread but it was shot by famed photographer, Mario Testino (therefore its sure to be haute). I love the spin they took, in accentuating her face (versus the usual big-body shot). She looks natural, pretty, and like she's married to the best/smartest MC ever. I heart her big ego! Work it!

Luxurious Explosion: Louis Vuitton Fall '09

Powerhouse Marc Jacobs really knows how to fashionably say, "Eff the recession"! At his showing (closing Paris Fashion Week), he didn't hold back on luxury. He presented Parisienne fashion at it finest. I'm, especially, loving the embroidered leggings and thigh-high boots. Also, the styling is impeccable, as always. Apparently, Jacobs is the fat lady and now PFW is over. Bisous!
