SHADE BLOCKING !...SAY HELLO TO 90'S COLOR LENSES TREND



In my opinion, sunglasses are much more than just an accessory to “protect” the eyes from the sun or disguise when we aren’t wearing makeup. It has the power to make the ensemble even more stylish.

One of the emerging hottest trends for sunglasses in the year 2017. From the runways of Gucci and Opening Ceremony to celebrities like Bella Hadid, Nikki Minaj, Rihanna seen on Easter is one of the many celebs that are wearing coloured tinted sunglasses. This brings a whole new spectrum and trends for designers to play around with different shades of colours and gradient styled lenses.
This sunglass style was worn a lot in the 80’s/90’s and after that, it was featured in the latest fashion weeks, and has won the hearts of fashionistas and celebrities.  

The cool thing about it is that besides giving a touch of color to the look, it leaves the overall ensemble a more current aspect. Not to mention that, since the lens is transparent, we are able to wear it in closed environments without fear of looking foolish. I love it!

Although there are different color models, yellow lens is the highlight of the moment, but by being transparent, it gives an extra edge to the look.
Like everything in fashion, this type of trend is those that divide opinions, some love and others hate it, I am of the team that loves and now want some models for my collection! Haha.

Rita ora is all in..

KYLIE JENNER & TYGA BREAK UP....AGAIN!

Pay your own child support....we can only imagine the convo started off like that. Tyga and Kylie Jenner continue their on-again-off-again cycle with another break. Citing multiple sources, People reports that the couple has broken up.
“They tend to take little breaks all the time and then get back together,” said an insider. “It’s definitely possible they’ll work things out again.”
T-Raww, 27, and Jenner, 19, have had a long and complicated relationship since 2014, when they were first rumored to be dating. At the time, Tyga was criticized for romancing the 17-year-old model.

Once Jenner turned 18, the couple made their relationship public. Tyga even joined episodes of Kylie’s family reality series, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”

But throughout the years, their relationship has also been tumultuous. They’ve broken up several times, including once in 2015 after Jenner’s brother Rob Kardashian started dating Tyga’s son’s mother, Blac Chyna.

Last year, after another breakup, Tyga spoke on the relationship’s troubles. “When you’re in a very public relationship like that, it’s hard for other people to see you differently,” he said. “Being in that, it took a lot from me, just, career-wise and everything. It overshadowed a lot of my talents and a lot of things I worked hard for.” Weeks later, the couple reunited.

The breakup follows recent allegations from Blac Chyna. In a series of Snapchat posts, Tyga’s former fiancΓ©e called him out for allegedly failing to pay child support and not paying their babysitter.

SNOOP AND DRE TO INDUCT TUPAC IN THE ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME

Tupac Shakur’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony next month might just have a Death Row Records reunion vibe. The late icon’s former labelmate Snoop Dogg is leading the tribute in honor of his “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted” collaborator, according to TMZ.
Meanwhile, Dr. Dre is reportedly in talks to also join the ceremony. The legendary producer is apparently close to signing on and insiders say that the tribute will feature at least three songs, including “California Love.”
Snoop and ‘Pac had a friendly relationship that included “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted.” However, ‘Pac reportedly shunned Snoop for not beefing with Puff Daddy and The Notorious B.I.G. at the height of his Bad Boy feud. “Me and him clashed, because [radio host Angie Martinez] asked me on the air, ‘How do you feel about Puffy and Biggie?’ And I said what I felt. ‘They my homeboys. I love ’em,'” Snoop told “Sway in the Morning.”

Still, Snoop said he saw ‘Pac after he was shot in Las Vegas. “Last time I saw him, he was laying in the bed, holding onto his last breath.”
‘Pac’s relationship with Dre had similar ups and downs. The duo worked together on “California Love” and its classic cinematic video. However, once Dre started stepping away from Death Row, Shakur taunted Dre. On “To Live and Die in L.A.,” 2Pac said the song was a “California Love” sequel, “without gay ass Dre.”

Tupac will be inducted into the Rock Hall along with Pearl Jam, Journey, Yes, Joan Baez, and Electric Light Orchestra on April 7 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

TYRA MAIL!: BACK TO AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL


Lacefront and all...mama Tyra is back!

The iconic supermodel took to Twitter to announce that she couldn't stay away long and is heading back to America's Next Top Model.
Banks, who just signed on as America's Got Talent new host, left the reality model series last year when The CW Network canceled the show after 22 cycles. Pop singer Rita Ora began hosting the show as it moved to VH1 while Banks continued to serve as executive producer.

Banks thanked Ora for taking over saying, "Mizz @ritaora, you exemplify Business Boss Brand to the fullest! Thank you for all the amazingness you brought to ANTM."

EDDIE MURPHY HINTS AT COMING TO AMERICA SEQUEL

Eddie Murphy is working on a sequel to Coming to America.

Twitter went into meltdown after the comedian's official account posted a picture of Vanessa Bell Calloway in character from the original 1988 film along with the caption: 'Coming to America sequel?"

The tweet and his whole account have since been removed from Twitter. 

While the tweet appears to have been in error, or perhaps just too early, Eddie is in early writing stages of the project, TMZ reports. 

In any case, even preliminary chatter of another film triggered a number of enthusiastic responses, with notable names such as actress Holly Robinson Peete and NFL alum Shawne Merriman reacting to the vague tweet.

The original film told the story of an African prince named Akeem (Murphy), who resists overtures of an arranged marriage with flawless Princess Imani Izzi (Calloway) to seek love on his own. 

He and his best friend Semmi (Arsenio Hall) eventually wind up in Queens, New York, with plenty of fish-out-of-water humor from the comedy master Murphy.

It was a massive hit when it hit theaters in June of 1988, grossing more than $288 million worldwide. It garnered two Oscars, for Best Costume Design and Best Makeup. 

Murphy and Hall played a number of personas in the film, with Eddie famously schticking as a barbershop regular named Saul.

GABRIELLE UNION LAUNCHES NEW HAIR LINE..BUT THE CRITICS ARE TALKING

While I am sure Gabrielle Union’s new Flawless haircare line has been a huge success since its launch last week, it has not come without a bit of controversy for its creator. Since unveiling the collection via Instagram, Gabrielle has been inundated with complaints from people who think she’s simply trying to make a quick buck from the booming natural hair movement- while not actually wearing her natural hair. 

Gabby has also been taken to task for her vague use of the phrase “textured hair,” as well as the models she chose to use in the company’s advertisements.

The “textured hair” models Gabrielle chose to use to promote Flawless were also noted by critics, who accused Gabrielle of trying to get black women’s money while not actually using black models or women who have kinky hair. Gabrielle hasn’t offered a retort to that accusation, but we all know the #1 rule for selling hair products to black women with kinky/coily/nappy hair is never use models that actually have that hair type unless you are peddling relaxers or texturizers.

The black haircare market is a billion-dollar business. However, relaxer sales are down and natural hair products are where the money’s at. Gabrielle is aware of this and looking to cash in on it like any good businesswoman would. Gabrielle wants to sell her products to as many women as possible and will use the terminology and imagery to do so, hence the liberal phrase “textured hair” and the wavy and curly-haired models used in the advertisements.

Is Gabrielle wrong for trying to get her slice of the natural hair pie? No, I don’t think so, especially if the products are of good quality. Honestly,  why not give your money to  Gabrielle It's no different then some of these white-owned companies who also jumped on the natural movement once they realized there was a buck to be made.

RIHANNA DEBUTS FENTY UNIVERSITY PUMA COLLECTION IN PARIS

Class was in session at Fenty University as Rihanna debuted her latest Fenty x Puma collection on Monday (March 6) during an elaborate school-inspired fashion show in Paris.

Back at the City of Lights for her Fall 2017 show, Harvard’s Humanitarian of the Year took over the National Library of France, using study tables as runways for her dashing and daring models.

The sometimes NSFW show began with a choir singing Radiohead’s “Creep,” but then, things turned up with in-your-face smashes from M.I.A. (“Bad Girls”) and Die Antwoord (“Happy Go Sucky Fucky” and “I Fink U Freeky”). Meanwhile, models walked down the runways with a combination of casual cool, bold ensembles, and brief moments of nudity.




WHITNEY HOUSTON DOCUMENTARY GETS TO DEBUT AT TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL

Whitney. Can I Be Me, a new documentary about the tumultuous life of singer Whitney Houston, is to debut at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. The project is the brainchild of director Nick Broomfield, who has previously helmed documentaries on Sarah Palin, Curt Cobain and rappers Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur.

Showtime Films financed the documentary and says it will use exclusive and rarely seen footage of Whitney to tell the story of her life. Via an interview with Billboard last year, Broomfield also detailed his plans for the documentary, including his reasons for declining commentary from Houston’s ex-husband Bobby Brown.


“Brown and Whitney were in a kind of strange dance,” Broomfield told the magazine. “They were completely destructive because they were in a weird competition with one another. I’ve never heard Bobby Brown even vaguely talk eloquently about that. I also didn’t want to spend a dime of money on him.”

"BYE WIG!"...HALLE BERRY STYLIST WANTS YOU TO KNOW

Halle Berry wig broke the internet yesterday...Halle Berry‘s curly wig launched a million memes on social media Sunday night. The 50-year-old Oscar winner wore a Versace frock and a custom wig of disheveled curls.

Laughter  ensued as social media users poked fun at Halle’s head. Some compared her coif to a bird’s nest and others claimed her wig was intentionally turned backwards.

On Hollywood’s biggest night, Halle Berry needed something different to draw attention to herself.

Enter celebrity hair stylist and custom wigmaker Castillo Bataille.

Betaille implied that, while styling the wig, he cut off a little too much hair and, in the process, inadvertently created an entirely new wig.
“I would say I cut off at least 5 inches. It created a whole new shape,” the L.A. based hairdresser told InStyle. “It’s definitely a new look for her — we went for a very natural, curly, powerful asymmetrical ‘fro. This is something she’e never done before and it’s just ridiculous how good she looks.”
Apparently he's drinking his own Koolaid...this was an epic fail.  Halle Berry looks like she was in a 12 step program and this is graduation day. ...just saying!

MOVING THE FENCE..VIOLA DAVIS WINS HER FIRST OSCAR & MAKES HISTORY!


Take your time...Viola Davis most certainly swung for the fences when it came to her Oscars speech.
The actress, who won her first Academy Award on Sunday night, delivered a long and rambling speech after nabbing the Best Supporting Actress gong for Fences all in a custom Armani dress. She paired this look with a metallic silver clutch.

Viola, 51, broke down in tears as she opened her speech, which went overtime by over two minutes, with a metaphor about a graveyard. 

She went on to thank your costar and director: 'And captain, my captain Denzel Washington. Thank you for putting two entities in the driving seat: August and God. and they served you well.
Viola had tears in her eyes as she said: 'I became an artist, and thank God I did, because we are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life.'
It was also a crowning achievement as she became the first black actor to ever receive an Oscar, Emmy, and a Tony.
The official set length of time for an Oscars speech is 45 seconds, but the actress went well over three minutes. 

Viola was previously nominated for Doubt (2008) and The Help (2011). Congratulations to our black girl magic.
