I never paid much attention to Keri Hilson but her face is really pretty and I really really like the dress. It fits nicely and the color is magic against her skin.
Lea Michele has really been impressing me lately. Even though I thought her black dress at the Emmys wasn't very original. She looked amazing at the SAGs and now wonderful at the Grammys. The dress is beautiful, sexy and still fun. Perfect for her age too.
This is a crazy dress but I still think it is pretty.
Taylor Swift is a little too syrupy sweet for my liking. But I thought she looked excellent in her blue dress.
Wow J Lo. She is trying to come back hard. She looks incredible. The long thing in front is weird but its the Grammys, beautiful weirdness is allowed and encouraged!
I think in my life I have been very hard on Fergie. I am softening up on her. She really works hard and seems to be married to a cad. Anyway she looked great in her little blue dress. These famous women have bodies to kill.

Sick boots, Balenciaga motorcycle bag.
So simple and so chic in just three great pieces. A dress, bag and shoes.
I LOVE this look below. So simple and yet glam. I could NEVER pull it off. Casual glam: White shirt, jean shorts, Hermes belt, Louboutin ankle boots.
Casual Glam. White tee, jeans and oh yea, a Goyard Bag.
Simple and pretty. Great color!
This is one of her more complicated ensembles. By complicated I mean I can count more than four things on her. Usually she never wears more than four pieces, meaning the dress, bag, shoes and maybe a sweater. Or top, bottom, shoes and bag. Below she has way more than usual. But still adorable, no?

Below are photos of Elle McPhereson jogging or walking home after dropping her kids off at school in London on three seperate occasions.
I do believe that models should be thin and the clothes look better on thin women. But the models above are starving. Clothes do not look good on women who look like they are sick and sad. I don't think seeing bones through the material looks nice.
Look at the supermodels of the 90's below. They were my idols growing up. They were thin but they don't look like they were starving (though they might have been). They do not look sick.
This post is not about young girls and how emaciated models may give them an eating disorder. No, this is about how fashion is supposed to be about beauty and an ideal. The skeletal models are not beautiful and should not represent the ideal for that fact alone. What kind of people are allowing this epidemic to go on? People who do not like women. The more these types of skeletons show up on runways the more we should examine the people who are perpetuating that standard. No more focus should be put on the models who are literally dying to make a living. The spotlight should be shone on the people who are hiring them. Silently demanding that they DIE for fashion.
The arresting cover and 19 page spread took my breath away. I remember thinking she was the most beautiful person I had ever seen and wanted to know everything about this glamorous African supermodel goddess. Iman wore a form fitting Herve Leger dress (don't mess with the supermodels of the 90's, of course she wore Herve Leger), opera gloves and held a bouquet of white starburst lillies. Look at the way he is looking at her below. He knows what he has. (See previous post "Beauty and the Beast.")She wore no veil and allowed her hair to cascade down her back with soft tendrils framing her face.

I thought Mo'nique looked great in this dress. Now this is a woman who knows how to dress for her figure. She is not small, but she is shapely and she works it.
I like that Lea Michele wore Malandrino. Not a staple red carpet label. But a label that I adore nonetheless. She looks magnificent. Young, sexy and elegant. The color works with her skin and hair color. The plunging neckline is not too much.
I really like Diane Kruger. She won me over in Inglorious Basterds. I think this mustard color actually works on her skin. Plus the fit is marvelous.
