Happy Monday Bombshells!

You know how August is: everyone disappears for late summer vacations and to gear up for the upcoming blitz that September always brings, especially this year with Fashion Week and the MTV Video Music Awards happening during the same week in New York City. I hope this means the fashionable are preparing to bring it in a few weeks’ time. Meanwhile…

Beyonce New York Chanel Polka Dot

The fabulous La Knowles was spotted strolling the streets of downtown NYC rockin’ what appears to be this Forever 21 polka dot romper (thanks, YBF commenter LoveleeMia) with a sweetheart neckline, gorgeous Chanel accessories, and a bad little fuchsia bag. I like the outfit (especially the shoes) but not too sure about the wet curly ‘do she’s got goin’ on here, hmmm…


Actress LisaRaye put in an appearance at the Little Miss African American Scholarship Pageant wearing her signature color, white, in the form of this demure little A-line shirtwaist dress. A sash, strappy sandals, and minaudière clutch, all in gold, completed the look, as did her simple, pretty makeup and subtle gold accessories. I’m not normally a fan of Lisa’s style but this is quite a cute look for Lady Diamond–hot.


Mogul Kimora Lee was on mommy duty this weekend as she, her girls, and partner Djimon Hounsou took in a showing of Shrek: The Musical in NYC. Decked out in one of my favorite summer staples, wide-legged white jeans, the Fabulosity guru tops them off with a silk caftan top trimmed in beads and high-heeled thong sandals. The tan Birkin ain’t hurtin’ things, either. Very casual-cute hot for the new mom of three…


India Arie and Rocsi served up some sass at a taping of 106 & Park last week, India in a purple tank dress and Rocsi in a high-waisted skirt and top combo. Love Rocsi’s kisses tee as well as India’s sexy sandals (and she added a cute touch with the doorknockers). And I see Rocsi’s got on black patent YSL Tribute pumps, which have now replaced the YSL Tribute sandal as the “it” shoe of the moment. Hmm. How long until we start hearing fashion backlash against these, or are they immune?


We first highlighted The Noisettes’ frontwoman, Shinga Shoniwa, a few weeks ago and homegirl popped up on the scene again this weekend, this time at the Amstel Light Amsterdam Live Event in Atlanta. Love *love* her sequined, bold shoulder, yellow sheath and turquoise earrings. The neon pink nails add dimension to her color selection and, once again, her makeup is flawless. Hawte!

What say you all?
