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?

Shoe game proper!
I like basketball, but I love seeing how the women with the best seats in the house shut the game down in their best casual chic. Courtside is almost like a little fashion show and this week Selita Ebanks and Lala Vasquez brought it when they cheered on some of their favorite teams.
Selita got into last night’s Nets vs. Bulls game in New Jersey while enjoying chicken and beer (my girl!) in a pair of bad Christian Louboutin Ron Fifi Over The Knee Corset Boots that Halle Berry and Ciara have also been seen in:
LaLa was a fly basketball wife while supporting her man, Carmelo Anthony at the Clippers vs. Nuggets game in Los Angeles. She rocked a celeb favorite heel, the YSL Tribute Pump, in leopard print and added some shimmer with an Alexander McQueen leather jacket and Stella McCartney clutch.
I couldn’t tell you which teams came out on top during either of these games (for shame) but don’t you think these outfits are a win?

No, really, I almost forgot about Kanye West ’s most recent ex because he and Selita Ebanks look so amazing together!
The model and the rapper (surprise, surprise on that pairing), were dressed to the nines last night at the Grazia Masquerade Ball at Opera Garnier in Paris. They attended the fete after Kanye screened his 40-minute “Runaway” short film–that stars Selita–at the Max Linder Panorama.
Selita donned a mustard colored dress that looked beautiful contrasted with a red bag and lips and put her best foot forward in a $1,190 pair of Givenchy Calf Hair Ankle Booties. The Louis Vuitton Don is still on his dapper suit flow.
These two were also seen together at the U.S. Open in September where they looked perfectly polished while watching the action in the stands. Kan “Christian Dior Denim Flow.”
I kind of love the way they look as a pair, but while Kanye showed her some love by dropping her name amongst other models in his new song “Christian Dior Denim Flow” when it comes to a romantic connection, Selita told Starpulse ”No, no, no.”
“I’m just happy that he’s a great friend,” she said. “I love his creativity. I love that he thinks outside the box. He’s just himself. Not only am I a fan, I support him 100 per cent.”
She can call the relationship whatever she wants, but style-wise, I call it a perfect match.

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show
Can you believe she almost married
that clown Nick Cannon?
Waaayyyy too hot for him.
Sexy looks painful, doesn’t it? I don’t know if this makes me want to go to the gym for 3 hours today or never go to the gym again.
Although a lot of the stuff they put on the runway is a little out there, it is a show. And what’s the point of a runway show without a little couture and a little costume and a lot of skin. Should they send the girls down wearing the black-on-black ensembles the rest of us wear? Because um, boring.
It’s not skanky or slutty either, since their product is underwear, but pearl and crystal thongs … I always thought that was a bad idea. As if thongs weren’t uncomfortable enough already.
But this show was all about boy shorts … My fave! Great to see lingerie that doesn’t automatically assume that every woman likes a G string.
Sexy, slutty or jealous?
I’m jealous. I will take the bodies and leave the sequins and feathers.
