Tom Brady’s wife is ending her days on the catwalk! Brazilian website , Estadao reported that Gisele will be ending her runway career next month and will reportedly walk her last show in her native, Brazil at Sao Paolo Fashion Week. Never fear! She will continue to grace us with fierce campaigns and editorials. Thank God, right? Gisele officially began her career in 1996 when she walked in a show at New York Fashion Week. The next year, she would prove that she can survive a wet runway in an Alexander McQueen show. Soon after, the late designer dubbed Gisele “The Body” a nickname originally bestowed upon 1980s supermodel, Elle Macpherson. Gisele will be sorely missed on the runway as it is truly the end of an era. Hopefully, Naomi Campbell will continue to walk into her eighties!
Jessica Alba was in New York for a Morgan Stanley conference, apparently, she’s into finance possibly? Whatever, all I know is the Narciso Rodriguez ensemble she wore to the gathering was everything and more. It was sleek, yet, fashion forward and the peach color is a true standout from the normal beiges, whites, and blacks that are the go-to for a typical professional look. Also, the white handbag accented the coat perfectly. This should be a lesson for designers that create clothing for the working woman; step outside of the normal neutral color palette and experiment the way Narciso Rodriguez has.
I can never get over the fact that Jennifer Lopez is in her mid-forties and looks as fabulous as she does! While filming at Jimmy Kimmel, she wore a pretty sheath dress by Preen and Casadei pumps. Normally, I am not too fond of a matchy-matchy look but this dress wouldn’t have been complete without those red heels. Also, I love when Jennifer has her hair in those vintage 1960s hairstyles; she has a unique bone structure that can pull off any hairstyle and, of course, she had her signature smoky eye and nude lips as the finishing touches.
I love the seventies! It was such a glamorous and free time especially for black people in the entertainment industry. We were truly flourishing in that decade in the most positive ways. But one thing that is for true is anything went when it came to fashion. Like Sly Stone and his then wife, Kathy Silva (pictured above) when they got married in matching gold Halston outfits. He wore what looks to be a jumpsuit and a cape and she looked increasing beautiful in a long gold dress.They married in 1971 during one of Sly’s concerts at Madison Square Garden in New York. Despite their union only lasting a few years, their wedding outfits are engraved in vintage fashion history as 1970’s luxury at it’s finest.
Kim Kardashian debuted a blonde bob at the Balmain fashion show in Paris. However, I have two concerns: Does anyone care? and How can she not see that the blonde brings out the plastic surgery she has had done to her face? Honestly, Kim Kardashian is a beautiful girl. I just believe that she should have left her face alone especially with her going for a ‘Harry Potter’ kind of coif. What happened to that fuller faced girl that used to massage Paris Hilton’s feet? What happened to that beautiful girl that swallowed Ray-J’s…. We’re going to leave that alone. Anyway, my true concern is the fact this is what makes the news now; I guess world issues are on the back burner. Who cares if the girl changed her hair color? In real life, when someone changes their hair it’s noticed and then it’s over with. Nobody cares anymore but, apparently, in Hollywood it matters for weeks and months at a time. It’s an exhausting form of repetition just like Kim’s tactics for publicity.
First of all, I hate that my industry is completely driven by money. When I was first hired it seemed to be a job that focused on customer service. I’m not too crazy about customer service, either. However, once I was hired it was sales, sales, and more sales, bitch! I don’t know a lot about capitalism, but I know for sure that I am an enabler of capitalistic gain. However, I am an unwilling enabler. One more thing I hate is the customer service skills we are groomed to use are a sick form of reverse psychology to make the customer believe that we are interested in building a relationship to only get whatever it is that we want from them. Aren’t these the same skills that Terrence Howard used in Hustle and Flow? I hate that I feel trapped in the customer service field because I am quickly becoming aware of the fact that I hate being a people pleaser for unappreciative people and half the people I come into contact with want to spit in my face because I’m black. Yeah, there is kind of a radar for that kind of thing. Especially, when I greet my white customer and they refuse to acknowledge my presence. My coworker was even called the “n word” and what happened? A sit down was held with the customer to ensure that he respects everyone. Everyone being yellow-skinned and darker. I can’t wait until I’m an established blogger/writer. Which is why I am really focused on growing and building my blog because my happiness matters so I have started a GoFund Me account (http://www.gofundme.com/careerfunds) to jumpstart my career and relocation to an area with media opportunities. I decided to go this route because I am a full-time student and part-time employee.
Chris Brown is a father, y’all! TMZ broke the news that Chris fathered a nine month old baby girl with a chick named Nia. The surprise? Nia has partied in the past with Karmat and her bestie, Christina Milian! So is that how Chris came up with the concept of “these hoes ain’t loyal”? Anyway, Karreuche, in true and typical social media socialite fashion she took to twitter to say that she and Chris are over and that she wishes him and his secret family all kinds of superficial luck. The fact Chris has a baby is not surprising, but what I’m truly hoping is that the beautiful and sweet, Karreuche, is finally done being a drag or die bitch. She went at it with Rihanna over this formerly Wrigley’s gum endorsed guy and then he made vulgar songs with said Bajan. I’m not going to lie ‘Birthday Cake’ is a standout song on ‘Talk That Talk’. However, Chris left Karmat for a slice of Rihanna’s cake and left this child to lick up her tears! Karreuche, it is not worth it, girl! Please let this be your breaking point. Give me a reason to take ‘Karmat’ out of the title of this post!
