Style to Steal or Girl, Stop: Zoe Saldana, Lauryn Hill, M.I.A. & More Get Très Chic in Paris, Philly and Berlin
What a fashionable week it has been! Blame it on the fact that it is Paris Fashion Week, as well as Fashion Week in Berlin, and then some of our favorite ladies were just out and about dressing anything but traditional. Let’s take a look through some very exotic, very fierce and maybe even questionable style choices from the week.
Model Joan Smalls showed up at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013 shows wearing these colorfully printed bottoms with wedge heels that had a strap across the foot, and she threw this sheer long-sleeved top on for a complete look.

Some of the biggest names in entertainment over the years dropped albums, TV shows, had huge roles in movies and more over the years, only to disappear off of the face of the earth when the press and the people were calling for them. Why? Well, after reading the most recent issue of GQ, which profiled the rise, fall and re-emergence of D’Angelo, folks like Questlove eloquently explained it as “a crazy psychological kind of stoppage that prevents them from following through. A sort of self-saboteur disorder.”
Or maybe they just weren’t feeling folks all up and through their business and wanted to live like normal folks. Whatever motivates these artists to dip in and out of public view only they know, but we’re always happy when they come back. Here are a few, aside from the obvious Lauryn Hill and D’Angelo, who decided to step out of the spotlight when they were huge, but decided to come back later (before disappearing for a bit again).
