We Want: Cassie’s Fly Nails

March 2nd, 2011

And her ring too… 

One of the latest in nail trends: crack polish and it’s addicting. Cassie tweeted a picture of her nails showcasing the trend that’s can be cheap and easy to execute.  

 

  

 

Get the look with OPI’s “Black Shatter” nail polish. It’s a topcoat that’s currently sold in both Katy Perry and Serena Williams’ nail lines for the brand that you can put over any color to create the ”crackled” effect.   

 

OPI Black Shatter, $8.50 

While we’re on the subject of Cassie’s TwitPic I’m also loving her Melody Ehsani ”I’m Fly” airplane ring ($48). This is the same jeweler that did the funky accessories Selita Ebankswore with her hot pink LQS by LaQuan Smith  dress on Rip the Runway.  

Find out where to buy OPI’s funky new shade (and virtually try it on with different colors underneath) at opi.com and visit melodyehsani.com to throw some fly new accessories into your cart.

Double Take: Selita Ebanks and Cassie in LQS by LaQuan Smith

March 1st, 2011

Who was prettier in pink?

If you thought the hot pink dress that Selita Ebanks rocked during this year’s Rip the Runway looked familiar, you’re right! Cassie wore the exact same LQS by LaQuan Smith Spring 2011 mini at a party she hosted at 1Oak last October.

 Selita paired the body-con creation with nude pumps  and added a touch of sparkle with some cool earrings and rings from Melody Ehsani: Melody Ehsani See Me Earrings, $122

Melody Ehsani Armor-Dillo Ring in Gold, $48  (Selita wore two!)

Melody Ehsani Chain 4 Finger Ring, $120

Meanwhile Cassie brought the glitz to the dress with jeweled sandals, rings and simpler stud diamond earrings.

 

We also have to flash back to when Nicki Minaj did it on ‘em in a custom-made LQS by LaQuan Smith dress when she hosted Rip the Runway last year. Nicki’s version was slightly different with chain shoulder detailing instead of the nude piping but I wonder if Selita was inspired by Nicki’s host look?

I’m not loving the shoes Nicki paired with the pink as much as the ones Selita and Cassie wore. Cassie’s sandals are sexy, but something about the way Selita’s nude heel pulls out the stripes in the dress just looks the most fitting. The pump keeps the look sophisticated while the jewelry gives it a bit of flirty edge.   

 These ladies love LaQuan Smith, but who do you think really ripped it?

Cassie Strips Down

February 24th, 2011

Take it off.

No, it’s not another naughty picture leak. Cassiegot back to her modeling roots for the Steven Meisel directed Calvin Klein campaign for CK One. The black and white campaign is a nod back to the original 90’s ads and in just one of the scenes in a video teaser Cassie “argues” with a fellow model while sporting a bra and undies from the line as Kelis’ “Caught Out There” blares in the background.  

 Watch her work:

On March 1st, Calvin Klein will relaunch CK One as a lifestyle brand which will include jeans and underwear in addition to the popular unisex fragrance.

See more of Cassie in the CK One campaign on ckone.com.

Nicki Minaj’s Bedazzling Birthday

December 10th, 2010

 A celebration in true Barbie fashion.

When it’s your birthday, you naturally want to outshine everyone with your look and Nicki Minaj took that notition literally when she partied at Tao Nightclub in Vegas. The blonde bombshell celebrated 26 in a nude bodysuit bedazzled with hundreds of strategically placed jewels and pearls. 

Mission accomplished! Even Cassie and Amber Rose ended up looking tame standing next to the Woman of the Hour. Cassie wore a body-con Herve Leger dress while Amber went all Little Bo Peep on us in a polka-dot dress and Mary Jane Heels. Other guests included ‘Lil Wayne, Baby, and Nicki’s Young Money family.

Nicki was presented with two chic Barbie cakes, including one that was modeled after a convertible car.

 ”Vegas was a mooooooooovie!!!!! Young Money / Cash Money #out” Nicki Tweeted at the end of the night. Roger that!

Cassie’s New Vibe

August 20th, 2010

One more look at her old ‘do and a look at the new.

VIBE posted outtakes from Cassie’s photo shoot in their 2000 Juice issue and besides the scarf they put on her that looks like it was made from teddy bear fur, these are hot pics! Miss Ventura  really knows how to work the camera:

 

Although Cassie posed in her half-shaved, half-long locks it might be the death of the infamous ‘do. This week she was spotted wearing a new hairstyle: a chin-length bob with her hair parted to cover up the buzzed portion.

I guess all good things must come to an end (well that’s if you were feeling her half-and-half hair in the first place), but is it just me or is the new hair not doing much for her? Looks a little average girl-next-door.

What do you think of Cassie’s new look?

Would You Wear: Designer Sneakers?

June 15th, 2010

 Fashionistas and sneaker-heads alike, chime in!

 Cassiewas spotted at the Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York this past weekend in footwork that could’ve cost more than her entire summery shorts outfit: Christian Louboutin sneakers with an original retail price of $835!  For that price tag you could snag a pair of the red bottom heels that would probably last longer, and have money left in the bank! Do you think it’s worth shelling out hundreds for these studded kicks?

The singer probably got the hookup, but still…I hope nobody spilled on these pricey pairs!

Christian Louboutin Louis Woman Flat Sneakers, $835

Christian Louboutin isn’t the only big designer shoe brand that has made the foray into sneakers.  Jimmy Choo, Gucci, Lanvin and Prada, just to name a few, also produce sneakers that you could stunt in outside of the gym, but that are priced in the $200-$800+ range.

Would you pay that much for sneakers? Tell us what styles you’ve spotted that you think are worth the splurge!

Would You Wear Nicki and Cassie’s Summer Jam Heels?

June 8th, 2010

Watch their footwork.

Nicki Minaj lit up the stage for Hot 97’s 2010 Summer Jam and the self-proclaimed Barbie pulled out some serious shoes from her closet.

Nicki Minaj Summer Jam 

Strippers and porcupines. Those were the first things that came to mind when I saw the 6-inch heels that Nicki paired with her Versace dress. The seriously spiky platforms were custom designed for the rapper by 2BD and look like they could knock somebody out. The designer says they weigh 15 pounds!  Definitely not a shoe to be worn by the faint of heart.

2BDBOOT

2BD Hellraiser Boots

Badgirl Cassie kicked it with Nicki during the concert and it looks like the new BFFs are sharing shoes. The singer rocked the same wedges that Nicki wore during BET’s 2010 Spring Bling  (click here for the flashback!).

These multi-colored espadrilles would be so hot for summer especially with a screaming pedi shining through the peep toe, like Cassie’s neon orange. 

Tsumori Chisato

Tsumori Chisato Wedges  ($540)

 Both these heels are attention-grabbing for sure.

Would you wear them?

Long Live Leggings

August 13th, 2008

Oh for the love. More leggings.

Ashanti

I dig the jewelry, the belt and top. Not so much the bottom half.
