• Weekend Hot! or Hmm… Rihanna, KimYe, the 42nd Annual BRAG Gala, and More!

    Happy Monday everyone!

    I had a fantastic weekend involving lots of sleep and a costume party on Saturday! Can you believe a girl had on the same Captain America costume I did? I should have been a flapper like my fashion senses were telling me to be anyway…

    The celebs were definitely out this weekend and there were equal doses of fabulous moments and hmm-worthy looks.

    Let’s get into it shall we?

    On the set of her new music video, Diamonds, Rihanna sported an asymmetric ‘do and a maxi dress with double thigh-high slits. Can’t wait to see this video!

    KimYe looked like quite the lovely couple in Venice, celebrating Kim’s birthday. How can you not love her Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2012 dress?

    The stars were out at the 42nd Annual BRAG (Black Retail Action Group) Gala in NYC. June Ambrose served vintage Hollywood glamour in a Moschino dress with her incredibly good looking husband serving as her arm candy.

    A $455 SuperTrash Shardee Leather Pencil Skirt was the focal point of Angela Simmons’s look. I need this skirt in my life! I would have loved a nude Pigalle pump here no?

    My favorite look at the BRAG gala belonged to Tamron Hall in Jason Wu and Jimmy Choo sandals. That dress is a work of art!

    Vivica Fox chose a showstoppping J. Mendel gown and fur bolero at the event.  Her makeup is flawless, but this dress just does not work which breaks my heart because J. Mendel makes the most amazing pieces. Until next time Aunt Viv…

    Last, but not least was Beverly Johnson in our weekly Benjamin Button segment: she sported a sequin Sherri Hill jumpsuit and worked it better than girls two decades younger.

    Naomie Harris opted for a textured white dress in a Chanel Spring 2012 number while at the Skyfall photocall in London. Those Pierre Hardy booties? Gorgeous!

    Joan Smalls flashed her pearly whites and showed off her amazing skin for her first time in Moscow for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia. Loving the photos of the week over at Valentine Uhovski!

    Nicole Richie repped her brand at Teen Vogue’s 7th Annual Fashion University in NYC. She paired a Winter Kate dress with $595 Christian Louboutin Pigalle Patent Pumps. The look was fine, but I needed more in the beauty department here: Nicole looks a bit washed out no?

    Outside of the Good Morning America studios, Brandy kept it cute in a leopard print sweater, R-13 harem jeans, and those $1,895 Christian Louboutin Equestria Boots. This will not be the last time you see these ladies and gents!

    Studs were the embellishment of the weekend for Christina Aguilera who paired a knit beanie with a leather sleeve denim jacket, graphic tee, leggings, a $770 Alexander Wang Rocco Bag with Resin Rivets, and a pair of Christian Louboutin Marisa Studded Boots. Too bad her hair is so distracting: this is actually a cute look!

    It seems that Leona Lewis’s trench game is quite serious! She rocked another one at The Rose Club in London, after wearing a hot pink version last week. Simple and chic for sure.

    Hot mama Victoria Beckham strutted through JFK Airport with her adorable daughter in tow in a $925 Balenciaga Moleskin Top and a pair of $595 Proenza Schouler Colorblock Cap Toe Pumps. Is she ever off her game?

    Alesha Dixon chose a lace print peplum dress and neon peep-toe mary jane pumps while at the Prince’s Trust Against All Odds Youth Forum in London.

    Tinie Tempah joined Alesha at the Youth Forum, but kept it casual in sweats and a leather bomber jacket. He could literally wear anything: he’s so scrumptious!

    Holly Robinson Peete went glam at the 26th Anniversary Carousel of Hope Ball in Beverly Hills.

    I haven’t seen Chrisette Michele in a minute, but she was on hand at the 2012 Somaly Mam Foundation Gala in NYC. Hmm…

    My girl Jessica Alba opted for her signature printed denim in a pair of $198 Current/Elliott The Stiletto Skinny Jeans in Grey Floral while outside of SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. Cute!

    At the GEMS Benefit Gala for Girls Educational and Mentoring Services, Nicole Ari Parker looked amazing even though she only had on a leather jacket and skinny jeans. My skin has never looked that radiant even on my best day!

    Last, but not least Keke Palmer who opted for a Ted Baker LBD, Stella & Dot Jewelry, and on-trend cap toe pumps at John Varvatos’s 10 year West Hollywood Party.

    Who had your favorite looks this weekend?
