Check out one of my top 10 favorite Designers Ellie Saab 2012 Fall Couture Collection. Obviously the Dresses are Gorgeous,but my only problem is this, i have seen Ellie Saab do dresses like this before.
I know some people may not agree with me but this is my view.There was no difference or anything that really stood out for me about this collection. And also most dresses looked like one dress in different colours, and styles (its like i am seeing the same dress over and over).I love the dresses though,but i also like Variety. All around it was still a beautiful collection.
Check out Blue Ivy out shopping with her mother in Newyork city.I am so used to seeing Blue Ivy covered with a blanket,this was a pleasant suprise.Anyway she is growing up so fast! How time flies,and she so cute.
By the way what do you think about Beyonce’s New Hairstyle?Seems like braids are coming back.It looks like more like her sister Solange’s style though.

You are a real Super Hero Madiba,with love. Audrina.
Rihanna is on the Cover of Harper’s Bazaar August 2012.In the Magazine she gives a vry revealing Interviw.Here are Excerpts from the Interview:
On her rebellious behavior:
“I’m rebellious through my music, through my fashion, tattoos, and my hair. I have been conservative in my love life… it’s pretty much nonexistent. If I come across someone who I find really cool, I’ll hang out. But the minute I find that we’re getting too close I just—I don’t let people in.”
On Chris Brown’s “Birthday Cake” remix:
“The fans could have said, ‘We don’t want anything to do with it.” I understood that people had every right to be concerned about it. But I didn’t see it that way because I’m in a different place.”
On being fearful of love again:
“When I was in love, I fell so hard. I was really, really, really in love. The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life. I’m afraid of feeling that again.”
On her new extra slim body:
“I don’t know if there’s something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life!” she laughs. “I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it’s not living up to its full potential right now.”
Naomi Campbell is working with Italian label Pinko for the second time to front its Autumn / Winter campaign.She is Photographed by Daniele Duella and Iango Henzi at Spring Studios in London.
She looks really good i must say.I know she has said in the while she exercises and sticks to a strict beauty regime .She also admits that she’s genetically blessed with a high metabolism. But seriously for 42she looks good.
She once told Harper’s Bazaar
‘I don’t worry about a number. I’m fine with aging’, .
She now lives in Moscow with her Russian billionaire boyfriend Vladislav Doronin, is currently preparing for the launch of a new TV reality series titled The Face, during which she will mentor aspiring models.Good for her.
