One of the many celebrity couples welcoming babies this spring/summer has just given birth! According to US Weekly, football player Reggie Bush and his fiancee Lilit Avagyan just welcomed a baby girl on Monday, May 6. A rep told the mag:
“Lilit gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. The tot weighed in at 8 pounds, 9 ounces.”
Less than a month ago, Bush, who is now a running back for the Detroit Lions, wrote about his family plans and how the couple will balance new parenthood with his career on the football team’s blog, saying:
My fiance’s name [is] Lilit. She’s Armenian and just got her citizenship, actually. She speaks Russian, Armenian, English, she’s learning Spanish now. She wants to speak Russian/Armenian to the baby first, which I like, because that way she grows up knowing multiple languages.
“The baby will be in LA. Well, she’s going to be in LA because her family lives 15-20 minutes away from us. So she’s going to need that support system while I’m here for a few days out of each week. Then I’ll be home. Depending on which week it is, I’ll be home on a Thursday or a Wednesday and come back here Sunday. I’ll just have to deal with travel. I’m going to rack up a lot of sky miles, I know that.
“I’m very excited. Very excited about the baby. It’s our first one and couldn’t have come at a better time. I don’t know if there’s ever a perfect time to have a baby because you can always find excuses like, ‘Well, I’m still trying to do this.’ I just think, for me, it came at a good time when I needed it to just kind of put in my head my direction in life. It just made it more simple. It couldn’t have come with a better person. Someone I really love and care about. It’s great. It really worked out perfect.
Glad things worked out so well for the couple. Congrats on the new bundle!
If you didn’t know by now, Ri RI likes to take chances with her ensembles, and by all means, this one is a risky one. Rihanna showed up at opening of the 40/40 Club at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn in this silk top and bottom. She accessorized with tan heels, a chunky gold necklace and a bright red lip to match the carpet. It definitely looks very pajama-ish for a club opening, but Rihanna has a very fun and funky style.
But too bad i’m not Ri Ri. I like that she tried this look, but I need some contrast. Maybe a different top, possibly a different bottom if you keep the top, but not both together. Stop. But if she was wondering, I still like that hair!
Hey fashionistas! Looking for some style inspiration? Or better yet, looking to skewer the style choices of some of the biggest names in Hollywood (or black Hollywood at least)? Why, you’ve come to the right place m’dears. Let’s take a look at who was killing it on the red carpet and for Fashion Week, and who could have done a lot better, and needed to be stopped.
Somebody loves leather! Actress Tika Sumpter arrived at the Urbanworld Film Festival for a screening of “Being Mary Jane” in NYC in an all black (and gray) ensemble and a bright red pout. She wore black leather (or pleather) bottoms with a sleeveless peplum leather top, and accessorized with pointed toe suede booties and a gray and brown newsboy cap. Don’t forget about that black bag with its chain link detail, and I’m digging the bone-straight hair. All in all, I would have mixed up the materials and probably not done leather on leather, and instead maybe tried some fly printed pants to get some extra color in there. She doesn’t look bad, but I was definitely looking for a bit more excitement (we couldn’t even get a bright bag?). I would pass on an ensemble like this.
The fashionistas were out this week! And while some tried for bold colors, others toned it down and accessorized with funky accessories and bright red lips. Let’s take a look through and figure out whose look was worth stealing and trying for ourselves and whose should have been stopped before they stepped out of the house.
Tennis ace Serena Williams stepped out to the “Late Show with David Letterman” in NYC looking like a chic stop light. Homegirl wore this Victoria Beckham red dress with embellished Louboutin pumps as she waved to fans and paparazzi. The dress was accented with black piping around the waist and an exposed black zipper on the back. Williams wore big curly hair, light jewelry and light makeup and if you asked me, she looked fabulous. The dress fit nicely, the hair was big and bold, the shoes were flashy but fun and the lip gloss was poppin’. That’s all a good thing. Steal!
The fashionistas were out and about this week in a variety of lush colors and interesting fabrics. Per the usual, we’re watching the fashion trends going on, but this time around, we’re checking them out from Cali, as well as London to see whose looks we would steal and who we would like to tell to stop. You down? Let’s begin.
The very fabulous actress, Kerry Washington, stepped out for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association luncheon in Beverly Hills yesterday, and for the occasion she went frilly and flirty. She wore this pink and red Christian Dior dress with its fluted skirt and pleated details, with a pair of nude pointed-toe pumps. Her jewelry was pretty simple for the occasion, opting for a small black watch, a small blue ring and small diamond hoop earrings. Her hair was lightly curled and luscious, and she sported a dark pink lip. I absolutely adore this dress and the nude shoes are a perfect and safe pick. The Dior dress is cute and fierce enough to make it through day and night events. Steal!
Another week, another opportunity to take a look at the smart or silly fashion choices of our favorite sistas. Folks were in full summer mode with all kinds of skin showing, so let’s take a look and figure out what were hits and what were misses.
Looking oh-so-funky at The Teen Choice Awards on Sunday, actress Zoe Saldana wore this eclectic Jonathan Saunders fit on the pink (?) carpet. The green, brown and light blue ensemble was a two-fer, with a puffy skirt and a cropped tank. Saldana paired some satin bow-adorned Louboutin stilettos with the look, as well as some simple hoop earrings. She pulled her hair up and kept her makeup light. I don’t think I would have thought to pair these Louboutins with a skirt and short set like this, but for some reason, I love it! It’s a mature yet playful look all at once. Steal!
Dressed to the nines for the New York premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, Zoe Kravitz was looking very dark herself in this alluring black dress. With its sheer panels and ruched material, the dress covered her lady bits and stomach in a peek-a-boo manner, while the bottom of the dress showcased a black skirt that reached over the knee. On her feet were strapped heels with a sheer toe and strap over the foot, and in her hand was a small black leather clutch. This dress brought Kravitz a great opportunity to show off her new haircut (which I don’t think I’m feeling), but the dress itself is a no-no. It could have been a winner, but in certain places, the dress comes off looking cheap. The shoes are fly, the bag is cute, and she’s in great shape, but no thanks. Stop.
As Donell Jones would say, “Girl, you know what’s up!” It’s time to go through some of the most interesting looks from our favorite ladies this week, and decide whether or not these women have styles we want for ourselves, or if they need to stop it and go back to the drawing board. Let us begin!
Amber Rose move over! Evelyn Lozada is trying to steal your bodycon crown this year. For last week’s Essence Music Fest in the NO, the reality personality showed up and showed out in this pacific blue, chartreuse and gray long sleeved dress. She paired it with light green snakeskin pumps, a sandy brown clutch, and don’t forget about that wedding ring! For Essence Fest, I think this outfit is fun, flirty, and appropriate. And though I’m not a huge fan of the Ms. Thang, I think her ensemble and hair look good. Steal.
I don’t know if anybody else has paid attention to this, but have you noticed how hard NBA players try to look like something out of the pages of GQ these days? Gone are the years when Commissioner Stern had to snap on the players (namely Allen Iverson) to ensure they wouldn’t come to the games looking like they just stepped off of a street corner. Now players are trying their hands at all the big trends, trying to remind everybody through their Gucci Shoes and Prada shirts that yes, they do have money, and now they want to start dressing like it. With that, we collected images of our four favorite players from the big Finals bout between the Heat and the Thunder (Game 2 to be specific) to see which of these cute brothas made a fly style move, and which ones need to stop it.
Look at Kevin Durant! Looking like a tall glass of water… *winks* Before the game, Durant arrived at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City wearing this tan suit with his fitted pants, orange tie with gold tie bar, plaid oxford shirt and navy blue pocket square. To help accessorize, the 6’9″ small forward wore laid back dark brown Chuck Taylors, a brown belt, and some Ray Ban-eque eyeglasses. I’m guessing the new trend for men is to dress down nice suits with sneakers, and while I’m not a huge fan of that, Durant looks nice. He’s just so freaking tall…And those arms…yikes!
Bron Bron also made a fashionable entrance into the arena last night, but went for a more laid back yet still dressy outfit. He wore this chic sky blue and heather blue sweater with its rugby white collar with a pinpoint oxford blue shirt and VERY fitted white pants. To accessorize, he went for blue and white suede shoes, a keychain on his belt loop, and a dark blue baller band to bring the look together. Another snazzy look for this guy, if I only I could stand him…(just kidding!)
*In a Nina Simone voice* It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, and it’s a new opportunity to showcase some of the cutest, or wackest looks from some of our favorite celeb ladies. Time to figure out whose look we’re trying to steal, and whose we want to just scream stop at. Shall we begin?
This past Sunday was the MTV Movie Awards in Cali, and wherever there’s an event, you know Amber Rose is there trying to be seen. She came with her fiancé Wiz Khalifa who was performing, and wore another tight-fitting dress to pose for the cameras. This detailed dress with its capped sleeves had a nude base with mint green flower appliques, beads and more. She wore it with nude peep-toe stilettos, had mint green nails and wore small studs. While I wish she would come out of the whole tight dress look that she’s been doing since we first saw her, I actually think she looks really cute in this dress and shoes. But next time, glue those eyelashes down a bit longer Ms. Rose, they’re looking kind of lopsided…Steal!
