Kelly Rowland Deserves the Fashion Crown!



We don’t think you’re ready for Miss Kelly!  Since her days of being a member of the successful R&B girl group - Destiny’s Child, Kelly has grown into her own fierce woman.  Now days, she is embracing her beauty, motherhood, and her keen fashion sense, and we are in love with every minute of it!
From spicing up tomboy looks to killing the social scene in an ankle-length fur, Kelly holds nothing back when it comes to styling.  She possesses the type of body that designers hunt for to display their clothes.  Everything fits her so well and drapes effortlessly on her shape. 
If you haven’t gotten on the Kelly Rowland bandwagon by now, let’s us sway you in her direction with some looks that we are sure will make you praise the fashion gods.  Check them out below.

It seems as if Kelly was saying this in her mind while she was smiling, “Yup, I’m definitely slaying without even trying and oh, have you checked out my shoes?”  This easygoing look is on point.  A t-shirt and distressed jeans make a cool outfit in itself, but adding a blue, leather biker jacket and silver, ankle-cuffed stilettos take this whole ensemble to a banging level.

Super Fly has nothing on Miss Kelly!  If you have ever needed a definition of a “bad chick,” just reference the picture above.  Kelly is crushing with this layered coat look.  The black on grey breaks up the monotony of the whole look and gives it a sleek, June Ambrose (Google her) vibe.  Kelly reigns!   
Peep out some more of Kelly’s astonishing looks below.  Let us know which one is your favorite and why.

Rihanna at Coachella 2015



When we think of Coachella, we usually think about free-spirited people gathered in an open, grassy field swaying to live, boisterous music. We also envision half-dressed women trying to emulate their best hippie look, food and alcohol galore, and tons of warm weather.  With this being our perfect Coachella image, you can almost imagine our astonishment when Rihanna rolled up on the Coachella scene decked out in the outfits below.  She completely went against our Coachella vision and reminded us once again why she is the Queen of Style.    

While her outfit choices may have been a bit eccentric, Rihanna is one of the few celebrities who can get away with fall fashion during festival season.  

Let’s try and wrap our heads around Rihanna’s bizarre, fashion choices featured below.  





Here Rihanna is spotted in a sleek, black summer dress, pink Doc Martens featuring orange flowers, and a purple, floor length fur from Marques Almeida’s Fall 2015 collection.  This is a look that makes us go hmmmmm but it’s so Rihanna.  Normalcy isn’t her mode of operation when it comes to fashion, and this outfit definitely supports that.    



Prints are in and our girl Rihanna took this trend to heart at Coachella this year.  While grooving to Drake’s performance, the Bad Gal sported a KTX Fall 2015 Printed Poncho and matching leggings and a pair of Balenciaga Unit Leather Biker Ankle Boots.  Underneath her poncho was a breast plate (she obviously takes tribal to another level).  Her other accessories included a nose ring, statement rings and bracelets. 

Now if you are liberated and bold like our Barbadian Boo Rihanna, then we have recreated one of her Coachella 2015 looks for you to sport to your hometown festival.  Check it out below.

Style Crush: Shiona Turini


"In college, during a summer internship, I took my first paycheck, walked into Versace and bought a pair of nude leather mules. I didn’t have money for food for two weeks and I was completely at peace with that."  This ladies, was spoken by the Fashion Guru herself; Shiona Turini.

Shiona Turini, former Fashion Market Director for Cosmopolitan, eats, breathes, and is fashion.  She understands the depths of the art and makes it come together to create masterpieces.  Shiona has held several positions in the fashion industry including working right alongside fashion greats like American fashion designer Tom Ford and Carine Roitfeld, former editor-in-chief of Vouge Paris and founder and editor-in-chief of the CR Fashion Book. 

In a recent article with www.thecoveteur.com, Shiona reveals some of her fashion favorites such as Alaïa and admits that she would love to trade closets with Diana Ross, Josephine Baker, and Grace Jones.  Shiona also admits that most of her fashion purchases are crazy, and she uses some of her finds as décor for her pad (she’s such a fashionable Michelangelo).  Check out her Balenciaga shoes strategically planted on her bookshelf below.

Sometimes too much leopard will make you say hmmmmm, but not on Shiona.  She makes leopard on leopard look stylish.  Choosing gold pumps instead of black ones for this ensemble was genius.  It breaks up the monotony of the leopard.

Shiona can hang with the boys and still look feminine.  This tuxedo dress is fabulous.  It is a different look from the regular cocktail dresses and it screams “boss!”  Every girl should own one.

Oh and she hangs with Solange (see Shiona in the blue).  Whoever hangs with Solange is a fashion beast!
