• This Week in Chic: First Lady and President Obama, Azealia Banks, Rihanna, and More!

    Happy Thursday everyone!

    It’s a dreary day in NYC, but Paris Fashion Week and the return of Scandal have me in high spirits!

    It was a solid week in celebrity style, with a slew of celebs seen out and about from the Big Apple to London.

    Check out some of this week’s most noteworthy looks:

    Our President and First Lady stopped by The View and stole the show, as they do wherever they go. Are they a good-looking couple or what? I hope you all are registered to vote: November will be here in the blink of an eye!

    Ms. Yung Rapunxel herself Azealia Banks showed off her new forest green waist-long weave at the Mugler show in Paris. I love it!

    Rihanna showed off her midriff in Heathrow Airport in a satin bomber, cropped hoodie, and a pair of close fit sweat pants. Hot!

    Mixed textures was the look for Alicia Keys who wore a two-tone leather sleeve jacket, printed scarf, mesh top, skinnies, and black booties outside of the Capital FM Studios in London.

    Rosario Dawson attended a photocall for the launch of Tara Smith’s Vegan Haircare line at Marks & Spencer in London in a long leather jacket, bow-detailed top, a pair of Miu Miu glitter booties, and a $475 Moschino Cheap & Chic Colorblock Lace Skirt. Not feeling the booties here, but the rest of the look is so chic! Rosario is an absolute beauty and I desperately need to see more of her.

    At the NBA 2K13 Premiere Launch Party at 40/40 in NYC, Julissa Bermudez kept it simple in a leather top and skinnies, but went bold with a new hairstyle: purple tips! I love it and might need to try this out myself for Fall.

    Julissa’s BFF Adrienne Bailon was also at the NBA 2K13 party with Bridget Kelly. I guess they coordinated outfits? Nevertheless, Adrienne looks cute.

    Ashanti showed off her enviable curves at the Jumpstart’s Read For The Record event at The Today Show in the Big Apple. She looks beautiful, but considering the nature of the event, less cleavage might have been in order no?

    Doesn’t it seem as if Kim Kardashian lives in the airport? She traipsed through LAX in a neutral ‘fit including a double-breasted leather jacket, two-tone sweater, leather pants, and black pumps. Nothing groundbreaking here, but this is definitely a great Fall look.

    Gabrielle Union and her boo Dwyane Wade hit the Hublot King of Power “305” Timepiece Launch in Miami. She looks simple and chic, while he looks…busy. They’re a cute couple though!

    More couples! Amar’e Stoudemire and Alexis Welch were on hand for the 2012 Metropolitan Opera Season Opening Night Performance of L’Elisir d’Amore in NYC.

    At the United Nations Every Woman Every Child Dinner 2012 in NYC, Aishwarya Rai matched the red carpet in a beautiful red lengha. Perfection!

    Vanessa Williams continues to defy aging and she posed at the Series Premiere of her new show 666 Park Avenue in NYC.

    LAX is always crawling with stars and Kat Graham was spotted there in an embellished camo jacket, crop top, leggings, and sick wedge boots.

    Terrence Howard looked incredibly dapper while leaving Toast in Hollywood. Yum!

    Boxing beauty Laila Ali dazzled in orange at the 27th Annual Great Sports Legends Dinner in NYC. How incredibly stunning is this woman?

    Last, but not least was Salma Hayek who tucked a black blouse into a peplum skirt and accessorized with sleek black accessories at the Balmain show in Paris.
