Will the Real Kimora Lee Please Stand Up?

April 6th, 2010

Boo to this. For so many reasons…

OK, OK. I admit. Yes, I recently sent a guy a pic of me from 5 years ago and passed it off as present day. Yeah. So.

And I know Kimora has been photoshopping her body to death for years in her ads for Baby Phat; but this right here…this right here is Kimora’s body photoshopped to hell and back.

KIMORA2

Wifey in purple looks better, right? 

Kimora, I love you. I love your show and your materialistic, ridiculous, juicylicious ways. You are beautiful and smart and driven, and from what I can tell a pretty good mom.

Your body has kinda been my post-baby, size-8-is-hella-hot inspiration for whenever I have my own. And now this…

That ad could be cute if you had only used your own body… And why wouldn’t you? It’s bangin!

Instead you hire a skinny bitch model to appear in the ad campaign for your new fragrance, “Dare Me.”

Not hot, Kimora.

Perfection stinks!

Kadi.

Protege Is The Best Line Ever!

March 3rd, 2009

Sweet holy moly!

I just spent half an hour talking about the yumminess aired on Rip the Runway.

Uh … Eesh… Gulp.

Never before have I been so compelled to lick my monitor.

Protege models

Yes, I know. Rip the Runway is all about hot music and fly fashion. Gotcha. But, I was also taking in the eye candy. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the view!

The Girl Crush Continues

February 27th, 2009

I keep hearing Stevie Wonder … Isn’t she lovely?

You gotta love her!

The official portrait of first lady Michelle Obama taken in the Blue Room of The White House.

Michelle Obama

Dayyyym. Our First Lady is hot! I mean, she is a classy and lovely woman and we can all learn a lot from her.

Political blogs are going to freak out about her wearing another sleeveless dress. (She’s amazing and it’s cool to have a stylish First Lady and all, but OMG sleeveless!) Give me a break! Lady’s got taste.

Shoot, I’m starting to think she loves her biceps as much as America does. And I love that particular cut, where it narrows a bit at the shoulders. If you’ve got great shoulders (and Shelle does), it really shows them off.

Can I call her Shelle? How did Barack Obama land her? Oh yeah, his smile. Oh wait, that’s how he got me.

What do you think of the pic?

Kadi.

P.S. Seriously, on some Photography 101 ish, that curtain jacks up the whole composition. Don’t make people look like they have curtains/trees/etc. growing out of their heads. And photoshop the wrinke out of her dress and the flower blocking her hand. All three irk me. Now I’m off to do some push-ups. Some.

Michelle Obama: The Dress Was Dreamy

January 21st, 2009

Was Michelle Obama’s Jason Wu the gown of our dreams?

Maybe not, but she looked stunning.

Michelle’s dress, I loved it. I think it’s pretty and looks pretty on her.

I also thought it was very, very safe choice and a lil’ boring. It was nice, but nothing  breathtaking. Out of all those sketches, an all the options she must have had, I just hoped she’d pick something more … you know, hotter.

It was one step away from a regular, silky little black dress. Something brighter, or with a bit of glitter detail would have been nicer to me. Oh well. There’s always four years from now. Sigh.

What did you think?

Plus, more fashion looks from Michelle’s inaugural weekend. Her daytime suit was stunning. Don’t you agree?

Kadi.

Michelle Obama: Who Will She Wear?

December 5th, 2008

I’d give anything to babysit for this family.

The pressure is on. Designers are sketching up a storm, hoping our First Lady-elect will choose their design to wear during Washington DC’s inauguration festivities.

Michelle Obama

I’ll be in the mix, and I’m totally excited to see what the Obama clan will wear come January 20th. I’m sure Malia and Sasha are going to be too cute for words.

These sketches are gorgeous, and Michelle Obama is model-gorgeous with amazing classic taste. She looks beautiful in the more tailored, structured pieces she wears.

I Miss Kelis

August 14th, 2008

She’s made plenty of money and is married to Nas. She’ll be fine.

Remember when everybody was riding Kelis’ coattail like they are we are riding Rihanna’s now.

Kelis

Today, my girl can’t even sell records.

She needs a clothing line. Fragrance. New album. Something, stat!

Summer Trends

May 16th, 2008

5 Beautiful Things

Whether these pieces have already found their way into your closet or a shopping trip is needed, the following is a must-have for freshness this season.

1. A modern clutch or box clutch handbag. The clutch comes in many sizes, so start downsizing your bags, bag lady.

2. Tribal prints used on dresses and skirts make a boring look decorative. This year dresses are full length and skirts have more volume.

3. Dresses with one shoulder strap. Other trendy romantic looks include tiered ruffles, fringe, roses and sheer fabrics.

Gabrielle Union

4. Black teamed with white is a very strong look this summer. It is a statement contrast to all the brighter colors, printed fabrics and dip dye effects.

Kelly Rowland

5. Flattering high waisted shorts create an hour glass figure by clinching the waist. Pair with cute flats in the day and pointed stilettos at night.

Only thing missing from my closet are high waisted shorts and a tribal print dress. So, you know what that means … Time to shop!

What will you buy?

Kadi.
