• New Year’s Weekend Hot or Hmm…: Amber Rose, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Diggy Simmons, and More!

    Beyoncé may or may not have given birth to her first child and 2012 rolled right in. Happy New Year!!! Hope you all had a wonderful time ringing it in.

    Let’s see what our fave celebs wore as they celebrated…

    Over at Surrender Nightclub…

    Wiz Khalifah and Amber Rose partied it up. I loves me some Amber Rose but they both look like a good shower is in order here. Between the Beyoncé stage tights and Nicki Minaj Pink Friday lipstick and the fact that Wiz’s tattoos go all the way up to his neck, I think I need to pop an aspirin. Hmm…

    will.I.am also hit the party channeling his inner “Legends of Bagger Vance“.

    Moving along…

    Leona Lewis was spotted at the HYDE Bellagio in a souped up prom dress. Makeup looks great, but the hair would have been better if worn up.

    Brandy and Ryan Press posed for a pic at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Vegas. Cute look for Brandy though I would have pulled back a little on the concealer, but her skin looks greaaaat.

    Then for a little Dick Clark’s Rocking New Year’s Eve…

    Drake hit the party in Times Square and played it safe in cargo pants and a bubble coat. Guess he got tired of ya’ll throwing jabs at his style after the whole leopard print fiasco. *shrugs*

    Nicki Minaj held it down on the west coast for Rocking New Year’s Eve wearing…an outfit…or perhaps your third grade solar system project. Who knows? The rapper wore her signature teal eyeshadow and pink lips this time switching up the hair with a really low lace front wig. Welp.

    Then over in Diddy land…

    P. Diddy hosted a New Year’s party with Kim Porter and stopped to snap a pic with Vivica A. Fox. Aunty Viv pulled out her sequins while Diddy looked dapper in his tux. LOVE Viv’s makeup.

    Then party girl Kim Porter posed with Nene Leakes. I like Kim’s dress (she certainly has the body for it) and her hair and makeup are on point—but uh, what’s up with the bright yellow polish? It just throws everything off. Nene on the other hand looks great from head to toe in her Lanvin number. She went a little OD on the under eye concealer, but still looks fab.

    I’m all on board with this lace midi-length Tom Ford dress Rihanna wore to Diddy’s party. Red lips were a perfect choice and I love that she wore her hair up but would have loved to see something more sleek and polished.

    106th and Park had a New Year’s special as well…

    Young Jeezy hit it with a leather and fur bomber, shades, and ubiquitous gold chain. Terrence J looked handsome in a velvet blazer with satin trim. Two opposites, both HOT!

    Diggy Simmons hit the stage at 106th and Park looking cute. This is how a teen should dress—jeans at the waist, nothing vulgar poking out, and he’s still fresh.

    Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon, and #demtwins bought out the entire white section of White House Black Market. I’m most often not a fan of Mariah’s style and this time is no exception (especially those Bambi for Christian Louboutin boots) but I love that Mimi will always do Mimi.

    Lebron James was decked out in his Tartan best right after proposing to his long time girlfriend Savannah. Nas is over there all Miami Vice fresh *swoon*.

    And finally…

    Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner were at TAO nightclub for New Year’s. Kim’s dress is a little on the tight side, but I adore Kris’s tux. No shade because I don’t watch any of their shows so I have nothing for or against Kim, but they both appear about the same age here :x

    Kim’s makeup?

    Pretty! I wish she would do less of the lashes coughandthebotoxsneeze. I’m not feeling the bangs either.

    That rounds it up, folks! Which look is your favorite this week?
