V Magazine's Coco in Motion Video

V Magazine shot this killer homage to Chanel, to accompany their latest issue (featuring Lagerfeld muse Natalie Portman). Pure hotness!

Glam Off Your Shoulder!

As I always say, Rihanna has an amazing creative team. In particular, her chief stylist Mariel Haenn always keeps it interesting. Check out Ri Ri (@ her album release party), rocking some seriously-sick shoulder adornments. This is sooooo hot! Shoulder accessories are super-innovative & unexpected. This makes up for her AMA red carpet disppointment. Now if Mariel can only convince her to lose that dreadful blonde hair, lol! Work!

Fab Christmas Wish

Santa baby, hurry down the chimney w/ this showstopper for your girl. Check out Gucci's large Sukey logo leather tote $1,495 via I'm totally salivating over this masterpiece. The metallic, monogram-embossed leather is to die. This number has me debating purchasing it over a birthday trip to Vegas, lol! Love it!

Victoria Beckham & the Sickest L.V. Bag

As shallow as it sounds, life must be delightful as Victoria Beckham. Having the hottest hubby & access to unreleased Louis Vuitton bags has be fantastic. Check her out @ an airport in London, rockin' this sick-azz messenger bag from Louis Vuitton spring 2010. This bag is insane! I'm crazy about the fox tails. Posh proves the messenger is back & in full effect. Love it!

Hit or Miss? Rihanna in Marchesa

Rihanna has been pushing the fashion envelope pretty far lately. With this AMA red carpet look, she may have gone too far. Check her out rocking this intricate gown from Marchesa spring rtw 2010. This dress is actually edgy/elegant but Rihanna manages to cheapen it w/ the white shoes. The shoes were such a terrible choice. Also, the hair is a major fail. I'm sooooooo disappointed. Hated it!

Shoe of the Week

Looking for a shoe that will dazzle @ the holiday party? Look no further. Check out the Christian Louboutin peep-toe glitter pumps ($725 via Pair 'em w/ an lbd & statement jewelry to complete the look. Dare to be fierce & festive. Love 'em!

Ciara Rockin' NoirLace 'Shoe of the Week'

Ciara may not be my favorite artist/fashionista but she worked it out w/ this one. Check her out @ the MOCA 30th Anniversary Exhibition in L.A. Ci Ci looked stunning in this form-fitting, sheer noir frock. The ponytail is fabulous, not to mention the Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 studded pumps (former NoirLace 'Shoe of the Week'). I must say, Ciara never looked better. Work!

Shoe of the Week

Dean & Dan totally slayed a classic w/ this shoe. Check out the spectator booties by Dsquared2 ($1,160 via I'm loving the noir piping contrast against mocha leather. When's the last you saw a spectactor, sitting on 4.75 inches? Love 'em!

Stylistas everywhere are obsessing over Alexander McQueen's spring rtw 2010 collection. Check out fashionista/heiress Daphne Guinness @ Nars 15th Anniversary soiree in NYC.

ALT & KLS to Breathe Life into ANTM

Tyra Banks will be pumping some much-needed blood into the upcoming season of America's Next Top Model. Banks has recruited fashion authorities Andre' Leon Talley (of Vogue fame---as if you were unaware) and Kimora Lee Simmons (returning from season 1) to serve on the judging panel. I stopped watching the show, after the "short" model initiative. Needless to say, I'm looking forward to the upcoming season. Fab!

Rihanna is giving the fashion & music industry fever. Check her out, being honored at Glamour's Women of the Year Awards. The emerging stylicon (or style icon) wore this intricate gown by Stephane Rolland. Clearly, her stylist (Mariel Haenn) is up on the hottest designers. Rolland was named an official Parisian Haute Couture member earlier this year. I love it! Two dope artists commencing to create fashion magic. Work!
