Vivienne Westbrook showcased her Spring/Summer 2011 Anglomania collection yesterday in Paris. The make up referencing the punk roots upon which her career was built. Haute couture shows showing in Paris all next week. I don't like the color different on each eye, hoping it won't be a trend. That fashion and beauty, trying something unusual, people will follow.
I went to the nail salon and the manicurist wore this gold chrome color on her feet. I asked for the color, she was wearing. The manicurist told me it was minx. I didn't know what that was. The manicurist said; Minx is the latest trend in celebrity nails. A flexible polymer that is heated then applied to nails, like a sticker, they are mess free, green alternative to nail polish and fake tips. This is better than tips, dislike dealing with glue and artificial fingernails They've been popping up at red carpet events, in music videos and on the runways. Celebrity manicurists love Minx for the fashion forward designs and easy to use.
Chrome Minx – Forget trying to get that perfect mirror finish with a chrome/metallic nail polish. This is what I wanted to use at first chrome/metallic polish. But found It’s NEVER going to happen. Well never say never but you know what I mean. Minx Silver and Golden Lightening is the only way to get a true chrome look on nails without going the fake/press on route.
To Try this at Home Application:
What makes Minx different from the nail stickers you can buy in the store is the material and the adhesive. I don’t know about any of you but I’ve tried the Avon and Incoco versions and could never get them to stick or lay properly. Plus, they just looked cheap. Minx is definitely a higher end product.
Application – A basic manicure is performed before application and the nail plate must be cleaned of all oils and residue. The coatings are heated under a lamp or hair dryer to make them flexible and warm the adhesive. The tech then lines up the rounded edge with the cuticle and, while lightly dragging, presses the coating onto the nail. You can use a hair dryer, after applying, to help the coatings seal onto my nails, like shrink wrap, before using the Minx glass nail file to remove the excess.
Minx can be purchased on Ebay http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=minx+nail

Socks and Sandals the new trend? I remember when that style was forbidden.Today people are wearing socks with sandals. Who decided socks with sandals was okay in the first place? Living in the New York, I remember once wearing socks with sandals. I was ridiculed the whole day. I knew it was a fashion don't but wore it anyway. I notice older men like wearing socks with Nike sandals but wouldn't think ,of it as a trend. Now, socks with sandals is a trend.? A footwear combination worn only by the fashion-challenged. If its hot enough for sandals no need for socks. If its too cold to wear socks you don't need sandals. I don't like the trend but think the model below looks utterly adorable.

New Louis Vuitton ads featuring Natalia Vodianova, Christy Turlington and Karen Elson. Vuitton cast models that reflect the curvy, diverse and more mature aesthetic (well, in model terms) of its runway-show models. This advertisement is my favorite for Louis Vuitton. Christy Turlington is also one of most stunning models from the 80's and 90's. Many find the ladylike style and attitude of days gone but Louis Vuitton advertisement is bringing it back. Keeping the glamour, classy and timeless is the key to attaining this ... From Head to Toe, the Classic Appeal & Style of Audrey Hepburn .

Not only did Miley Cyrus represent America with her performance of Party In The U.S.A. at the Much Music Awards in Toronto on Sunday night, she changed her look. Miley went from Disney to Rihanna chic? Do you like this look? I adore the boots with footless socks. Thats a real cute trend. The bamboo earrings were a bit much. The short outfit is too adorable for words but does it fit her style. I wish stylists can come up with styles that fit the person personality not always what everyone else is wearing. I would have still used a few key pieces but changed it to still be Miley growing up but not 21 grown. Afterall she is still a teenager.
Remember the 90's when you loved Saved by the Bell and 90210? Well, Tiffani Thiessen aka Kelly was the all time favorite girl on "Saved by the Bell". As an African black woman my favorite was Lark Voohies aka Lisa and Mario Lopez aka Slater and he is still sexy. Tiffani Thiessen aka Kelly from“Saved by the Bell” in the photo above wearing jeans and suspenders a fashion flashback that people are wearing again today. Trends always come back,
Beyonce and Kristen Stewart tried to bring the suspenders on jeans back in style earlier this year, but it didn’t really seem to take off. I wore shorts with suspenders. I thought it was cute but not a big hit this season.
Lala looked stylish and chic in her color block dress, but Ciara’s dress was youthful, exciting and yes, sexy, Ciara wore a The House of Holland x Levi’s denim buckle dress from the Spring 2010 collection which also includes jeans, tops and skirts in similar styles. Buckles on denim will be the trend this season, replica of Michael Jackson style from the Bad Video. He wore black buckles on his pants and jacket. Nice to see Michael Jackson influences in fashion styles today. Denim topped the trends list for this spring and designers got a lot more creative with the material than your average jeans.
