You Can Call Him Dr. Shaquille O'Neal Now.
2012-05-06 05:28:00
No shade on Shaquille at all with this pic, I only posted it because it makes me laugh. A lot. Anyhoo, congrats to Shaquille on his Doctorate Degree... via Miami Herald: NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal received his doctoral degree in Education from Barry University Saturday morning along with another 1,100 students during multiple commencement ceremonies at the James L. Knight Center in downtown Miami. Like all things done by the four-time world champion, 15-time All-Star, movie star, rapper and entertainer, O’Neal, 40, accepted the degree in style. Wearing a custom-made, bright red XXXL-sized gown, the seven-foot-one, 325-pound former Miami Heat center got on one knee so Dr. David M. Kopp could place a light blue hood around his big neck. O’Neal then stood up and lifted his professor like Tarzan was rescuing Jane. "Swept off my feet," Kopp described the moment, celebrated with loud cheers from the crowd.

Beastie Boys Adam Yauch aka MCA Has Died.
2012-05-04 19:50:00
via HuffPo: Adam Yauch, who performed under the stage name MCA, is dead after losing a long battle with cancer, according to reports from Global Grind and TMZ. The 47-year-old member of the Beastie Boys announced he would be receiving treatment for a cancerous tumor in his salivary gland in July 2009, and that that as a result the group would cancel some future shows and push back the release of a new album. In 2011 it had been reported that Yauch had beaten the disease, but reports were sadly exaggerated. On the band's website he wrote: "Hello My Friends While I’m grateful for all the positive energy people are sending my way, reports of my being totally cancer free are exaggerated. I’m continuing treatment, staying optimistic and hoping to be cancer free in the near future." Most recently, it appeared Yauch's health had taken a turn for the worst when it was announced that he was unable to attend the Beastie Boys' induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland...

My DIY Solange Inspired Mini Skirt...
2012-05-04 03:35:00
I posted this pic of Solange Knowles a few days ago wearing a fab outfit (white blouse, printed jacket and black and gold mini skirt) I didn't realize that I had enough leftover fabric to copy this look until later (my leftover fabric was from my inspired by Camilla Ferro New Orleans Saints dress) Once I knew I had enough leftover fabric to fit around my hips it was a go. I drafted a pattern for the sequined portion and for a knit lining (the sequin is a bit see through). For the sequined portion, I measured the circumference of my hips, then added a little more room (for my comfort) plus a half inch seam allowance on all sides. This is how the pattern looked for the sequin portion of the mini skirt (above). I cut (2) for the front, one in black, one in gold and (2) for the back with a half inch seam allowance on all sides. I combined the black and gold panels, edge to edge, with the black on top and the gold on bottom. I measured 7.5 inches top to bottom and 20 inches s...

Bobby Says He's Not the Reason Whitney Houston is Gone.
2012-05-02 18:43:00
Bobby Brown says he's not the one who introduced Whitney to drugs, but instead, it was the other way around. He says before they met, his only bad habits were alcohol and marijuana, watch below:  Ok, you know what? I believe him. From Whitney's sister-in-law Patricia, to Chaka Khan, there have been numerous people (who knew her) who have said that Whitney was already into some not good stuff long before she met Bobby. When you become successful on a stratospheric level like Whitney Houston did, who knows the kind of element that type of success draws in and what it exposes you to, good and bad. Still so sad nonetheless.

Style Verdict: Motorcyle Jackets & Graphic Maxis.
2012-05-01 16:22:00
Ok, full disclosure, I'm posting this trend because I love it. The toughness of the motorcycle jackets paired with a black and white printed maxi is a nice and kind of unexpected visual. I'd certainly wear this trend. But I wanna know what you think about it. Do you like it? Hate it? Don't care? Would you wear it? I wanna know your style verdict.

My Powder Pink Dye Job...
2012-04-30 03:57:00
Hey ya'll! I'm back with another dye job (see my most recent one HERE) and I'm not done yet! I had these pants in a bag of clothes to giveaway before I got bit by the omgIhavetodyeeverythingIown bug. So I'll say it again, don't get rid of clothes that you can breathe life back into! These pink pants started out khaki and flared (see below). Flared pants tend to make me look dumpy because of the fact that I'm so freakin' tall (I'm 5'4, lol) ok, flared pants don't always make me look dumpy, just sometimes. So before I dyed my pants, I found this tutorial that showed me everything I needed to know on how to take my pants from flared to skinny and more fabulous than before...   In addition to dying my khakis, I threw in a white tee, that wasn't so white anymore and a pale pink sweater. I used Rit Dye in petal pink, it looks more like a powder pink, or baby shower pink in my opinion, but it falls right into the pastel trends that were all over the runways at New York...

2012-04-25 16:18:00
"I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth," says PEOPLE's 2012 World's Most Beautiful Woman. "I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth."  The "Crazy in Love" singer, 30, and her husband of four years, Jay-Z, 42, have gone gaga for Blue, born Jan. 7 in New York City. "She's just the cutest thing," gushes Beyoncé, who croons one-of-a-kind tunes to her daughter and professes to "love" changing diapers.  So who does her daughter most resemble? "She looks like Blue," says Beyoncé, who is back to her pre-pregnancy weight and gearing up for her first post-baby concerts, Memorial Day weekend at the Revel Atlantic City. "She's her own person." "The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy," she adds. "The word 'love' means something completely different now."

Heidi Klum Covers Allure Magazine's May 2012 Issue.
2012-04-17 21:38:00
via HuffPo: Heidi Klum is posing totally naked in Allure's May 2012 issue. And, wonder of wonders, she looks amazing. 38-year-old Klum stripped down for photographer Norman Jean Roy, wearing nothing but a Hervé Van der Straeten bracelet on her right wrist (conveniently placed over her lady parts). Not that she's got anything to hide.  Needless to say, Heidi found ways to make her body work for her -- and she doesn't plan on changing it anytime soon. When asked the inevitable question about plastic surgery (Ed. note: when will lady mags stop asking female celebrities about this hackneyed topic?), she dished: "Everyone has a view of what's pretty and what's not pretty, and [surgery] just doesn't look pretty to me. Especially when I see it on really young girls. I don't want to name names, but it's like, Wow, I remember you five years ago, looking to me so beautiful, and now it's like... who is this person? And I know girls half my age who do it. What are they gon...

Jason Wu helped to open Fashion Week with his presentation on Friday, and due to his recent connects with First Lady Michelle Obama, you know he packed the house. It was a bit of a struggle for me to find a cohesive theme in what he presented in his Fall collection, but his pieces were beautiful nonetheless. I'll go ahead and make a prediction that we'll probably see Michelle in the black printed number below (2nd from left) sometime in the future.

Rachel Roy kicks off New York Fashion Week each season with one of the very first shows, but her Fall/Winter presentation didn't really wow me like pieces from her Spring '09 offering did. Maybe it was a complete lack of color in her Autumn collection (just about everything was white, black or platinum silver), but I still think Rachel's a fab designer.
