As previously posted on NoirLace, designer Christian Siriano will team-up with Payless this fall. The collection has been toned-down, to be more consumer-friendly (preview shown above). What a pity! I was looking forward to the spikes & chains. :-(

Obviously, Teairra Mari (or her stylist) is a fan of NoirLace. Check her out @ an event in L.A. rockin' this "Doll" approved get-up. She looks sooooo chic in this white short suit, Stephen Sprouse X Louis Vuitton bracelets, neon Christian Louboutins, and oversized LV clutch. Even the china doll hair option (wig), is working. This look is opulent & decadent. She gets a "love it" and a "work"!

Now this is how it should "bey" done. Check out Beyonce' at the premiere of "Obsessed". I was curious as to what she'd wear to the event. And Mrs. Carter didn't disappoint The Doll w/ this fabulous noir frock from Balmain ready-to-wear fall '09. She couldn't have choosen a more glorious gown. I would've suggested a different shoe but eff it---at least they're Louboutins. Work!

Recently, I've become obsessed w/ searching eBay for vintage Gucci. I stumbled across this super-dope ashtray (currently bidding @ $16.50). I love interior design, so this is totally up my alley. If it doesn't go beyond $40.00, it'll be on my coffee table soon. Wish me luck!

Ja'Rie Jewelry is an eclectic, earthy, and elegant line. Founded in 2007, Caribbean natives Laurie Warner and Janelle Joseph sought-out to create a collection reflecting their beliefs. "The name 'ja'rie' was derived from the Rastafarian word 'Jah' (meaning GOD) and 'irie' (meaning feeling good)," Warner said. The dynamic line consists of high-quality metals (sterling, bronze and gold) and genuine stones (garnet, turquoise, amethyst, etc...). And with prices ranging from $20 to $300, there's something to suit all budgets. So fashionistas put Ja'Rie Jewelry on your wish-list; as its sure to be an ever-evolving line. (for buying inquiries or custom requests contact firstname.lastname@example.org)
Decadent designer, Zac Posen, was spotted at the New Yorker's for Children A Fool's Fete event. Posen showed up & out w/ muse model, Coco Rocha. The pair look flawlessly fabulous, in designs by ZP. I love the black & white palette against the red carpet. Also, Rocha's flaming hair served as a great compliment. Work!

I love when runway meets reality. Check out actress, Diane Kruger, rockin' a frock from Marchesa ready-to-wear fall '09 (former NoirLace Honorable Mention). I absolutely love this dress! Although, I would've suggested nude Christian Louboutin peep-toe pumps. But overall, she looks chic. Love it!
Beyonce was spotted in Soho this weekend (w/ hubby Jay-Z) rockin' the dope & exotic Louis Vuitton African sandals. The Big B looked effortlessly-chic & superbly styled. The shoes nearly received NoirLace's "Honorable Mention". And as usual, Jigga is the best accessory. Work!

When I saw these @ Saks, all I could hear was "I'ma a diva I'ma I'ma a diva, hey!" Check out the Giuseppe Zanotti half-open wedge ($595 via www.saks.com). Obviously, these m-f-ers are damn haute. And for a fraction of Mrs. Carter's Gareth Pugh's, you too can be a female version of a hustla. Hey!

No, I'm definitely in love w/ this sequin blazer by Dolce & Gabbana ($1,795 via www.eluxury.com). The fit, the color, and the sequins makes my heart flutter. Can't wait to see which starlet will do this killer correct. Love it!

(Chanel Iman & Tomas Maier)
(Chanel Iman @ Bergdorf event)
Last night, uber-luxurious department store Bergdorf Goodman saluted Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier. Model Chanel Iman was among the elite attendees, frolicking @ the soiree. Apparently, the fierce Italian fashion house is one of many that adore C.I. With her grace, cat eyes, and wavy walk---I can see why she's a magnificent muse. Love 'er!
Tuesday, April 14, 2009
Whomever said Beyonce' needed a new stylist----must not be a fan of Jay-Z. If the naysayers, were indeed, Jay-Z fans they would know he's the ultimate stylist. Check out the Big B w/ hubby rockin' the insanely priced & intricately detailed Balmain military jacket ($11,410 via www.net-a-porter.com). I love this jacket, as much as I love Jay's music. And I know he knows whats haute. Love it!

There are very few that can take runway to the streets (appropriately, that is). Fashion icon, Victoria Beckham, is at the top of that truncated list. She's seen here, in Milan, rockin' Balmain. One must be a beast---to pull-off those shoulders. And VB worked that ish. Also, notice the Hermes Birkin bag. Love it!
"Private Practice" star, Kate Walsh, was spotted this weekend rockin' the super-dope Givenchy lace booties (former NoirLace "Shoe of the Week"). I love her simplistic-chic style. The booties are pretty effing fresh, most of all. Love 'em!
Thursday, April 9, 2009
Former Destiny's Child member, Letoya Luckett, looked fierce @ a photo shoot for her upcoming album. As you know, I heart noir! And Lady Luck is killin' it w/ the Louis Vuitton legwear. Love it!
R&B newcomer, Keri Hilson, is sooooo not representing for the "A" w/ this tragic get-up. She's shown here, @ a Pastry event---wearing this awful ensemble. Can you say 'camel toe'! Not to mention, she's way over-accessorized. She looks like a superhero/stripper. H8ted it!
Wednesday, April 8, 2009
The catwalk queen, Naomi Campbell, will grace the May issue of Giant magazine. I can't wait to see her other shots. As you know, there is known above (as far as models) Ms. Campbell. Therefore, this issue is sure to be a delight. Work!
French actress, Audrey Tatou, killed it @ the premiere of "Coco Avant Chanel". The acclaimed film star's rocked a frock from Chanel Haute Couture '09. The French always know how to work it out! Love it!

Last night former Danity Kane member, Dawn Richard, was spotted @ the Gotham magazine party in NYC. She looked super-fresh rockin' the ultra-chic Yves Saint Laurent cage booties. I love the way she mixed soft & hard w/ the addition of the silk top. She's getting Bad Boy money! Work it!
Monday, April 6, 2009
Bad Boy diva, Cassie, was spotted at an NY club this weekend-rocking the fabulous Balmain studded sandals (aka the business). She paired the signature shoes w/ a slick black leather jacket and a fierce pair of skinny jeans. I love the neon nails and gold accessories. I imagine life is wonderful as Mr. Combs unofficial girl (being that the shoes are priced over 2k). You better work!
As a devoted lover of fashion, the above image is my definition of atrocious. I can't imagine why Brooke aka Kanye's ex (from BET's Harlem Heights), thought it was okay to rock this get-up. Its all wrong, on soooo many levels. First of all, the length of the skirt should have been her enemy. In addition, the colors and patterns are disagreeing. Basically, I'm disgusted. Yuck! Tragedy X Atrocious = Atrogedy
Stop salivating and be formally introduced to the Corsica strappy sandal by Jimmy Choo ($950 via http://www.netaporter.com/). These would be sick paired w/ black skinny jeans, plain white tee, and an assortment of accessories. I imagine there is life, aside from Christian Louboutin (lol). Love 'em!

Public Library is super-fresh clothing company, out of L.A. The creators of PL believe "life is like a library, one big endless reference of ideas to inspire and engage." With this mantra, the line is quickly gaining notriety among some of entertainment's elite. Starlets like Beyonce', Halle Berry, Hayden Panettiere, Jessica Alba, Kristin Bell and Lauren London have all been spotted rocking PL. I love the line's use of original artwork and edgy silhouettes. So ladies add Public Library to your fashion rolodex; as its sure to add flavor to your wardrobe (all items can be purchased via www.publiclibraryla.com).
Mr. Project Runway has done it again. Christian Siriano has teamed-up w/ lingerie giant Victoria's Secret for vs makeup. Debuting in August, the cosmetics collection will include an array of eyeshadows, lipglosses, eyeliner and bronzer. There will also be a face brush and ruffled makeup bag---available for purchase. So ladies stay on alert for this lines's arrival; as its sure to be fierce!

It probably seems like Rihanna is the "it girl" for NoirLace. All I can say is, if she's fierce enough for Gucci and Dsquared2---she's fierce enough for NoirLace. Check her out arriving at an airport in Barbados. She's carrying that sick-azz Gucci backpack and rockin' a super-cute jumper. I love the cherry red lip and gold chain. Love it!
This sale is deserving of an announcement. Being a member of the Gilt Groupe has its luxuries. Get your bottoms painted red on April 8th when Gilt presents: Christian Louboution aka There is none higher. Here's a exclusive invite for NoirLace readers: http://www.gilt.com/invite/noirlace Enjoy! And please don't hurt 'em!

Yesterday supermodel/t.v. host, Heidi Klum, was spotted on a bench posing for German Vogue. Klum rocked the insane leather boots/pants by Alexander McQueen. I would've love to see her walk in those killers. They're soooooo editorial. Notice Heidi's ability to remain fierce & focused, as the crowd watched (as if she were in an aquarium exhibition). Work!
Thursday, April 2, 2009
Rihanna was spotted in Hawaii today, in fierce fashion. The R&B diva must read NoirLace. She's carrying a backpack from Gucci spring/summer '09 (previously posted as "Gucci's Bringing Backpacks Back") and Christian Louboution fringe boots ("Shoe of the Week"). Ri-Ri worked it w/ the addition of sick shades and distressed jeans. She's such a rockstar! Love it!

If you're a fanatic, like myself, you've been wondering about the return of Project Runway. Apparently, a lawsuit has been settled w/ the show's parent company, NBC. PR's much-anticipated sixth season is moving over to the Lifetime network. As much as I despise sappy-sad azz Lifetime, I'll follow this dynamic design show anywhere. What a major loss for Bravo!
The ultra-fabulous wedding dress from SATC was available for purchase Tuesday (via www.net-a-porter.com). Priced @ $9,875, the Vivienne Westwood Gold Label gown sold-out within a few hours. Hopefully the lucky ladies whom purchased the iconic garment, will carry it in true Carrie fashion. Love it!
