Gabrielle Union Attends the Tracy Reese Fall 2011 Runway Show

February 15th, 2011

Looking good Gabby!  

Gabrielle Union has been some serious rounds during New York Fashion Week. She’s been spotted in the front row at shows including Christian Siriano, Nicole Miller, Carolina Herrera and Tracy Reese where we saw the actress yesterday. At the Tracy Reese show, Union modeled a summery dress from the designer (she gushed about the pockets, perfect place to put your hands for all that posing), a Christian Siriano clutch that she’s been toting after seeing it on the runway and mile-high Christian Louboutin heels–her feet have got to hurt after all that running around! 

 

For Fall 2011, Tracy Reese showed a beautiful jeweled toned collection with lots of turquoise, yellow, magenta and orange mixed in with toffee, brown and gray; great to see some color for next cold season! The designer stayed true to her aesthetic of romantic silhouettes and bold prints with flowing maxi skirts, cozy knits, skirts with sequin embellishments and leather and fur mixed in for good measure.

The best thing about the collection: we can actually see the pieces working with our wardrobe. “Tracy always designs such beautiful, feminine flirty dresses that actually accentuate and celebrate a woman’s frame — a real woman’s frame,” Union said and we couldn’t agree more.

Dwyane Wade Lets Gabrielle Union Know When She Needs to Wear Spanx

January 18th, 2011

At least he’s honest…

Some men shy away from giving their woman style critiques before they leave the house but Gabrielle Union says her beau Dwyane Wade isn’t afraid to give her the heads up when she needs to go back to the bathroom and fix her weave (one advantage of dating someone taller than you!) or throw on some slimming shape wear.

While celebrating Wade’s 29th birthday during a $100K bash in Miami this weekend, the actress took to the mic to shower admiration and praise for everything her man does, including helping her keep it tight.

“It’s true, he tells me when my tracks aren’t covered,” she said. ”It’s true, he says ‘I think you might want to put some Spanx on.’ It’s true. But more than anything, he’s so considerate, he’s amazing and he’s f–king hot without his clothes on.  So tonight I just want to say, baby you’re not yet 30, which damn it I can’t wait until you are because it makes me sound a little bit less of a pervert. You’re not just an amazing basketball player and team mate. He’s a great man and a great father and I love him because he throws down great dunks and he’s always on ESPN. But love him more because he’s an amazing father and an amazing friend and he’s an amazing man.”

I’m not even mad at it! If your man can’t tell you when you’re out there bad, who can?

Watch the crowd go wild and Dwyane crack up as Gabby delivered her hilariously candid speech:

Trend to Keep: Boyfriend Blazers

August 12th, 2010

Blazing hot!

Boyfriend blazers have become a summer essential and the great thing about this staple is they come in so many fabrics and shades that you can own several and achieve a different look with each one!  Gabrielle Union and Rihanna both took a different spin on this trend yesterday and reminded us just how versatile this piece can be. In each case, the this tailored piece added a finishing touch that made the outfit way more interesting and polished–it’s a total transforming addition!  

Gabby balanced out the femininity of a floral frock with an ivory option at the Nylon + Express August Denim Issue party in Hollywood last night.

 Our favorite Good Girl Gone Bad (have you seen her new tattoo yet!?) added a touch of masculinity to her short shorts, sheer striped top and polka dot peep toe heels with a frothy rendition of the jacket when she stepped out in New York.

  

 While these looks are breezy and summery it’s still a perfect time to get into the blazer trend. With fall around the corner they’re a great transition piece.  If you like how Gabby did it in white, opt for a creme color that’ll make sense now and when the weather turns. If you’re feeling iffy about colors, black is always a safe bet. Look for a version that has interesting lining in the sleeve–like stripes or a pop of color–so you can stylishly show off your cuffs. Swap shorts for leggings or jeans and add a scarf to warm up a blazer for fall and the look still works for dresses with the addition of tights.

Tell us! How do you wear your blazers?

Zoe Saldana Is a Winner

December 16th, 2008

Stylish.

Absolutely loving the dress. Love the colors and the drape. She may be going for sophisticated, but the effect is really sexy.

Zoe Saldana

Just one piece can look so chic.

This makes me want to get dressed up in the worst way. I’m craving a fly dress!

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.

Zoe Saldana

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

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.
