Many of us self-proclaimed fashionistas need constant style inspiration when window shopping and flipping through magazines ain’t cutting it. The easiest option is to keep a tab open on that internet browser to get our style search on. But with about a million online magazines and blogs, a great option is to check out fashion-focused Tumblr pages that show the latest trends in an artful way. Tumblr is an incredibly popular short-form blogging platform on which blacks in fashion are flourishing. If you’re stumped on where to go first, check out our five favorite black-run Tumblr fashion sites to keep you seriously steeped in black style knowledge.
The web is all aflutter this morning over the picture you see above. The beautiful — and pregnant Beyonce — stepped out yesterday in the latest must-have fashion accessory: Alain Quilici Payson Skate Boots. These amazingly beautiful shoes are hot and unique, with similar styles having been spotted on other fashionable celebrities like black celebrity stylist June Ambrose. But the question is: should a woman with child be wearing a pair of shoes that could so easily result in a trip and fall? Especially so early on in the pregnancy? According to US Magazine, these bodacious booties are a towering five inches! (And cost $1,180…)
Our black celebrity gossip partner Necole Bitchie had this to say:
After the debate of whether Skate Boots were even hot yesterday, the last thing we’d expect to see is a pregnant woman keeping her balance on those unique heels. Beyonce was spotted around Manhattan yesterday afternoon, bundled up in a red jacket, leopard print scarf and pair of brown Alain Quilici Payson Skate Boots. Unlike the DSquared2 Skate Moss Lace Up Boot, the heel on this boot looks much more sturdier and is probably as easy as walking on a normal wedge heel.
Check out a close-up of the shoes:
Check out more Beyonce pics (and if you are lucky cop the shoes!) at NecoleBitchie.com. Another shot of B:
I don’t know. These look a little precarious. Of course, unlike the regular pregnant woman, Beyonce has her beefy body guard’s arms to fall into should anything go awry. Perhaps for that reason alone, she is actually within the limits of safety. (If it were me, I would just have my body guard carry me everywhere — pregnant or not. ) Those are some hot shoes, regardless, so I can understand her wanting to step out in style.
It’s important to keep your Hot, even if you are with child. Do you agree?

Every year we’re re-introduced to classic blazers and exposed to new designs, like last years’ popular studded shoulder blazers that were donned by an eclectic mix of fashion lovers.

This season, filling your closet with an assortment of blazers will ensure that your wardrobe is nothing short of fabulous, even on your off days. Check out these selections, and make your favorite picks.
There may be some other things you want to know about Trey Songz (like, if his girl’s neighbors do in fact know his name), but we can help out in the department of what he smells like. Trey is the spokesman for Rocawear’s new men’s fragrance called Evolution.
When the bottle arrived in our office (black, modern, clean lines), I immediately had all the men try it on. Surprisingly, it smelled nice on all of them. I say surprisingly because like Jill said, “everything ain’t for everybody,” but Evolution settled quite nicely into each person’s unique scent. When I took it home to hubby, he took to it as well. Nice addition to the rotation.
So, what does Evolution smell like? The press release explains the scent very well as “sultry musks, woody amber, rum doused fruits” and a few other perfectly worded descriptions that add up to a grown-man scent that is very engaging. You’ll notice when a man walks into the room wearing Evolution.
I will say though that Trey Songz is not the first person I thought of when I smelled this scent. I imagined some mature, broad-shouldered, cigar-smoking man with a wicked smile and a penchant for flying first class. Names like Idris and Laz come to mind. Not mad at Trey as the pitchman though. Not mad at all.
Jay-Z, the businessman behind Rocawear had this to say about the crooner:
He opened for me on the Blue Print 3 Tour to venues full of screaming women. He is the perfect person to communicate Evolution, as he has grown so much musically and as an artist.
Evolution is pretty affordable too. the 1.0 fl oz. spray is only $37.00 and the 3.4 fl. oz. size is $67. Grab a bottle at your nearest Macy’s and other retailers right now.
Have you had a whiff of Evolution yet? What’s your fav cologne on your man?
What do you usually wear to the airport? Whatever’s clean and not packed in your suitcase? Well, celebs are often photographed at the airport, so they tend to take a little more time to pull together a nice look. Melanie Fiona arrived at LAX after her NY Fashion Week trip decked out in designer everything. Peep the deets on her look below!

Bey isn’t the only Knowles who can work a red carpet. Always rockin’ to the beat of her own drum style-wise, Solange hit up the launch event of Kate Moss’s lipstick line wearing a Hot yellow dress and a big bouncy afro. You like?
Head over to Necole Bitchie to see pictures of her other outfit that night! Something about white fabric on brown skin just works really well. Right?
Accessories can transform an outfit. They can take a black dress from day to night and make a simple tank top and jeans into a funky clubbing outfit. If you are ballin’ on a budget, a cute pair of shoes or a hot bag may seem like a luxury you can’t afford. However, you can get some cute accessories for less if you know where to look. Here are some tips on how to cop some hot accessories on a limited budget.

It’s Miguel, Mr. Sure Thing himself! Doesn’t he look different with a little scruff on his face and a baseball hat. I lovehis album to itty bitty pieces and I put it on everything I would have walked right past this man and not known who he was. This is Miguel on the black carpet at this year’s VMAs. You caught our VMA recap, right?
Anyway, Miguel’s toned down look makes him almost unrecognizable. Still a cool steez though. Dude def has style. You might be used to seeing Miguel more like he is in the below pic.
I rock HARD with “Vixen” on Miguel’s cd. What’s your fav track on his album? And what do you think of this non-baby-faced look?
As the weather turns a bit crisp you’ll soon start to see jeans and trousers slowly take over the store shelves, but don’t run to cover those legs just yet. The great thing about autumn besides neutral tones and knee boots is that it’s usually a slow transition from warm weather to chillier temperatures and that in-between time is a great time to style your stems.
Check out this gallery of fun fashion finds to show off those legs!
Each of these celebrity women pass the bar when it comes to artistic expression and social independence. As they’ve made a difference in popular culture, they have broken the Hollywood mold by altering their looks and gaining acceptance for their nose ring. They may be blamed for giving you your first nose piercing! Joss Stone, Eve and Mary J. Blige to name a few have created a cultural fixation out of the nose ring.
Here are some others on our list:
