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.
The frat boys of SAE at the Uniersity of Oklahoma hate black people. There is simply no other way to put it. In case you missed it, a video was released of these “men” chanting “There will never be a nigger in SAE.” See what I meant when I said there is no other way to put it? Since the release of the viral video, the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity has been gutted from memory on the OU campus. That’s nice and all, but the root of the problem for myself and others is these guys were smiling in the faces of their black collegiate peers and then carrying on despicable actions like the chanting displayed in the video. They’re no better than the KKK since they always wear hoods because they are our neighbors and coworkers. Why do racists hide the fact that they’re racist? Stop speaking with a forked tongue and just reveal your true nature. Also, maybe some white people will see that racism is not an unicorn or a game of goldfish. It’s real, alive and breathing. It’s everywhere. It is a plague that continues to exist and will never be eradicated as it passed from generation to generation.
While conducting an interview with Islamist Hani Al-Seba’i, Rima Karaki had to remind the cleric that it is not 1865 and that she does not have to obey any man. The two were discussing Americans/Christians joining the fanatical terrorist group ISIS in the Middle East when he decided to go off topic and speak about issues from the 1970s. That is when things got heated! Karaki asks Al-Seba’i to “focus on the present” and of course, he doesn’t take to kindly to a woman saying such a thing to him. “Do not cut me off….I will not answer the way you like, because I’m here to serve the idea in which I believe.” That’s when Karaki decided to get him together by saying “In this studio, I run the show.” Boom! Al-Seba’i became quite angry and responded with “Shut up so I can talk.” At one point, he even said it was “beneath him to talk to her.” While he may think it is beneath him to talk to her he still got read his rights by a clearly liberated, beautiful, and educated woman. Just the fact Rima Karaki possesses these three attributes was something he could barely wrap is mind around. So with or without this confrontation she still wins.
Makeup Forever HD Foundation is the most amazing foundation ever! My blog isn’t really about beauty and makeup but I have to get on here and rave about the genius of this foundation. It has a sheer to medium coverage and it can be easily built up for those who prefer a heavier veil. Now that I have that covered (no pun intended) let me tell you about how long this stuff lasts. It lasts all day! It only gets a little oily on the face towards the end of the day. A typical day for me starts at 7:30 a.m. and ends at 6 p.m. and only then I have a little bit of oiliness on my nose. Other than that, perfect! I honestly believe that MUFE is the holy grail of foundation; you truly can’t go wrong with it! Also, it blends so seamlessly that it is almost scary. When I first put it on I just thought, “Wow, I’m going to fool people into thinking I was born like this.” See how I made that reference to Beyonce?
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.
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!
Taylor Swift will be the godmother to Jaime King’s unborn bundle of beauty and joy. However, that’s not why I’ve chosen to write about this sudden bill of responsibility that has been bestowed upon Taylor. It’s because this beautiful blonde tends to collect celebrity friends the way Elizabeth Taylor collected husbands. While at the Grammy’s earlier this year, she was photographed chumming it up with Kanye West; that’s practically a blood oath of friendship in the entertainment world! But, Kanye, really? Isn’t that the man who publicly embarrassed you so he could proclaim his love for Beyonce before he tried to fill the void with a talentless Armenian with an ass so huge it looks like it’s been stung by African bees? The same man you constantly talked about for ruining your moment as your accepted your silver moon man? I’m rambling! The point is Taylor Swift isn’t selective when it comes to her “friends”. I believe that she builds these relationships so she can have a hand in every circle. She’s in good with everyone from the models to the rappers and it makes me wonder is “America’s Music Sweetheart” the sleekest top player in the game?
