- I feel a great mascara can open the eye and instantly make you look as though you’ve have a good night’s sleep, even when that is not the case. I use 2-3 coats of Lancome Fatale on the top, bottom, and also on the back of the top lashes.
- Because of my Indian ancestry, I love darkly rimmed eyes – a messy eye adds a sexy yet natural look to a classic outfit. To make the eyes smoky, I use Revlon’s Luxurious Color Kohl eyeliner in Black Truffle on the inside of the lids.
- Bright lipstick is a way to quickly pop an outfit and freshen up a look a la Ava Gardner in “The Barefoot Contessa.” My favorite bright is MAC’s Morange lipstick – it’s a great way to add a twist to a classic look.
- Another way to make your face pop is to fill in the eyebrows. I use Bobbi Brown’s eye shadow in Navajo.

I was wondering if you could PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me. LANCE GROSS, Eva Pigford's boyfriend, did
a photoshoot with Derek Blanks and he has on a brown leather jacket in one of
the photos. He looks great and I want to send this jacket to my brother for
Christmas who is actually in the army in Iraq. I was wondering if you would know
how I would go about finding who makes it.
Okay Hajah, this is a hard one but I'll do my best to give you some great suggestions! Though I was not able to find the exact jacket worn by Gross there are some very stylish and affordable alternatives!
2. Tron Hooded Jacket by Guess $129.50
3. Rock & Republic Leather Modern Bomber in Black $748.00
4. Payant Leather Jacket by Guess $298.oo
These are the best alternatives I could come up with, I hope I helped! Let me know how it all turns out!
In the 1970s, imagination held sway and every flight of
fancy was possible. Screwed around the wrist of the beloved with a screwdriver,
the LOVE bracelet de Cartier thus became a provocative talisman and at the same
time an iconic symbol of a fusional love… Forgetting yourself until you are no
longer two, but one; possessing or letting yourself be possessed.And you, how
far would you go for LOVE?

Model Erin Wasson took a page out of Beyonce's book and wore the Alexander McQueen Military Waistcoat that B performed in earlier this month. Wasson opted for all black, while it looks like B's stylist duplicate the looks from the magazines (as seen on Kate Moss). I like the all black look best.

NOVEMBER 18TH has arrived! BEYONCE'S newest album "I Am....Sasha Fierce" hits stores today and since I've already heard the whole thing, I can safely co-sign and say it's hot! I love the slow songs and the fast ones too! Right now my favs are: Hello, Halo, and Diva. She's definitely taking over, and she knows it! Everyone (other R&B chicks) needs to take a break and let her do their thing, otherwise they will just be embarrassed. Let the queen show you how it's done!

"The most important thing is to make sure you have your own life, before yourI know that's right! I love this woman!
someone else’s wife. And I mean that.”
The second bag is the YSL Besace Messenger bag. I saw this bag while browsing the net one day and then most recently on Elle Magazine's editor in chief Anne Slowey on Stylista. I love a bag I can use different ways. Ths bag for example can be worn over the shoulder like most bags or the strap can be lenghtened to be carried across the chest, like a true messenger bag. I like the black one. Fans of this bag include Rihanna of the gold one and Jessica Alba of the black.
You value class above all else. Reputation is important to you and
you want a good one. You throw lavish parties and have fabulous connections, and
people aspire to have the status you maintain. Money isn't everything but you
believe its important top keep up a certain lifestyle. And honey, yours is firece.
Elle over at in a word...FAB basically sums up the shows worth waching this season, and it looks like our Tivo lists would be identical!

Check out Beyonce, or should I say Sasha Fierce's lastest promo shots over at Stuff Fly People Like. They're hot!

ALICIA KEYS recently wore this jumpsuit during a performance and I really liked it. For some reason, right now I am really gravitating towards them when I go shopping. They can be dressed up or down. You can throw on heels and a belt (as did Alicia), or you can put on a pair of cute flat sandals and make it more casual. I was shopping last night and when I stopped in Forever 21, I saw that they were really catering to jumpsuit-happy people! I tried one on, and it wasn't bad, but I didn't love the way it looked on me, so I left it for someone who would.
When I went on the website, they have one similar to Alicia's, minus the deep V-neck, which is probably more appropriate for everyday wear anyway. The Abby Knit Jumpsuit is only $19.80 and I think paired up with a bright shoe like Alicia's, you can duplicate the look. There are a few versions of the jumpsuit over at Forever 21, so take your pick. My shoe suggestion would be the Giambattista Valli's pink platform.
Unfortunately, everything she produces for TopShop sells out in minutes, so good luck getting your hands on one!
I put together a look of how I'd wear my fur vest, what do you think? What would you pair yout vest up with (assuming that you'd wear one at all)?
*Peep the Givenchy Nightingale bag I threw in! I want this bag sooo bad!

She rocked it before in black while out to eat, with black pants and a gold belt. The next time she was making a Popeyes run, pairing the shirt with red jeans, gold belt, and red Louis Vuitton Gina shades. I think Rocker Betty reminds her of her "Good Girl Gone Bad" side, what do you think?
I have long been a fan of these "Genie" pants, but I could never picture myself in them! I am not the tiniest girl and I always felt like that's who this look was made for since it exaggerates the size of the legs anyway. But I have recently really started to like them! I think I'm even going to take the leap and buy a pair. It's not that big of a commitment since I can get the look for only $15.80! Forever 21 has a pair of Shirred Ankle Draped Capri pants that I can test the waters with. Besides, I know the ones from Marc Jacobs and Ralph Lauren's Spring 2009 lines are way more than that!

It looks like CASSIE was digging through SOLANGE'S closet, or at least in that general area when she wore this feather number to Diddy's birthday party last night. The vest/shrug type jacket really amps a dress up and creates an entire new look. Plenty of people didn't agree with this look for Solo, but I was one of the few who really loved it, and I like it on Cassie also. I do have to say I think I like Cassie's better because it is all black and Solo's has the extra colored feathers hanging, I could live w/o that part. Who do you think won this style showdown?

Barack you are the beginning of something I am so proud and anxious to be a part of. What you have done goes far beyond filling a seat in a political position. You mean far more than your outstanding number of electoral votes won. What you mean is far more than what a person can sum up in words. Your are truly the reason those in the past have fought so hard and sacrificed so much for. I love what you represent and I cannot wait to be a part of this journey. This is only the beginning!
With Love, Admiration and Sincerity,
The Game shot the video for his new song "Camera Phone" featuring Neyo yesterday and I went to cover it for Rap-Up.com. Check it out, I took lots of pics and there were some other celebrity appearances too. It's all in the article, let me know what you think.
"If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer." President-Elect BARACK OBAMAWords truly cannot describe how I am feeling right now. I am so emotional, I've been a crybaby all night, lol. But they're tears of joy and pride! I am so grateful to be able to witness this very historical event and I do not take it for granted at all. Congratulations BARACK!!! Yes we DID!

I just returned frOm the polls and I am proud to be able to say that I was a part of this historical moment. When I walked to the booth, I took a a deep breath, got a little emo (emotional for those who don't know me, lol), but not to the point of tears I was just proud! The line was super short compared to some that I've seen.
My mom & I were all prepared with newspapers, beachchairs and our ipods, but none of that was necessary. We were there probably a total of 30 minutes, voting inlcuded. I can't wait to watch the returns! I have to head to The Game's video set for a song he's doing w/Neyo to cover it for Rap-Up, but they better have a little TV or something where I can keep track of what's happening!!
I cannot stress how important it is! GO VOTE! Not only for the president but for the propositions that your state has up for voting. There are some serious issues on the ballot, so get educated and know what you're doing when you get to the polls. If you've never voted before and are not sure where to go to do so, click here to find out. I am so proud today!!! The countdown begins....*anxious*
