It’s definitely getting warmer outside, and with that, people are ditching their uncomfortably tight jeans for sassy skirts, embellished shorts and anything that will let their limbs breathe. Celebrities are just a few of the individuals doing so, so let’s check out their leggy fashions from the week and decide whose look we would steal, and whose needed to be stopped.
At the launch of Jay-Z’s Dussé cognac the other night in NYC, former 3LW singer Adrienne Bailon showed up in a mix of sheer and sequined materials. Her shorts were bright, funky and pulled up high with all their gold sequins, and tucked in them was a sheer button up blouse with pockets on the front and a bow tie. The top had openings at the shoulders, and to accessorize, Bailon wore patent leather pointed-toe heels, a small black bag, and a bright pink lip. And yes, she has on a black bra to probably go with the outfit. The high bun was a nice style for the look. In the end, she looks cute. I feel as though she’s not trying too hard, and I know a gang of people who would wear something like this to the club…like tomorrow. Steal.
My 93 year-old grandfather, who is a devout Seventh Day Adventist, rarely talked about women in front of his daughters and granddaughters. (It was a different thing for the boys.) But he couldn’t help but profess his love for Tina Turner for all of us to hear. He was a particular fan of her legs.
As a child, before I’d ever seen “What’s Love Got to Do With It,” I knew Tina Turner as the woman who made my grandfather’s eyes gleam. I knew she had to have something.
While many of us know Tina solely from her biopic, we might have failed to recognize the roads she’s paved for female entertainers. While she wasn’t the first black woman to do so, Tina wore the blonde highlights to perfection. She made it ok for black women to work the rocker look unashamedly and as you know, her story is the epitome of strength and perseverance. Check out some of Tina’s best looks over the years.
Tina told ya’ll back in 1971 that she and Ike never do nothing “nice and easy.” (Clearly.) This picture is evidence of that fact. With her long, thick wigs and elaborate costumes, Tina knew how to “werk” while she was working. Tassels became a staple for the singer as she was known to keep it moving on stage.

Our legs are much stronger than our back muscles. Using our backs to lift, therefore, is likely to result in back strain and/or back pain. The next time you want to lift something, do not bend over. Bend your legs, lower to the ground with your back straight and keep your eyes focused upwards.
