More Zuhair

I just absolutely love Zuhair Murad's taste! Talk about making a woman look and feel like a woman. Nuff said.

The Spring 2014 Luxury Shoe and Handbag Lookbook by Bloomingdales

It's Salvatore Ferragamo!
Bloomingdales calls it "Geometry Lessons". See why? :-) Their Spring 2014 Lookbook for luxury shoe and handbag collections from different designers is out. What I love about the lookbook is that it is colorful among other things. It shouts "Bring in the spring." I don't know about you but I'm excited for the spring. This has been a very painful winter, with some of the worst storms experienced in a long time. Here are some of the pictures from the lookbook, all from Bloomingdales.com. I particularly like the Longchamp bag. I confess I noticed the brand more when Kate Moss started campaigning for it. The Rousseau shoes on the page are a BEAST!!! Love 'em.
From Chloe... don't you just love Chloe?

Atwood... love the bag

Rousseau... Awesome shoes
Love the Longchamp bag

Kelly Rowland in Love Like a Movie

Okay okay. Love Like a Movie in the title should have been in quotes. Darey Art, the Nigerian artist, last year or so, introduced his Valentine's Day weekend concernt "Love Like A Movie." For the first show, he flew in Kim Kardashian. Nigerians probably preferred his second celebrity guest: Kelly Rowland. Doesn't everyone just love Kelly?

Kelly rocked Ankara outfits. Whether Nigerian-made or made abroad, it was awesome that she rocked something that appealed to the Naija folk. She looked hot on and off stage. People couldn't help but notice her hard-rock abs. Oh, gym, where art thou?

Familiar Faces at the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Presentation in London

I think it's absolutely hilarious that fashion magazine issues are titled for the month after the magazines get to you. That is, you receive a March 2014 issue in February, but I guess it makes perfect sense in the fashion industry. People want to know what to wear this month, the month before, so they stay in style and in trend with their friends etc. Same thing about fashion shows. You see a fall collection in the spring and vice versa.

I was going through BellaNaija (BN) Style and came across Eku Edewor's picture with Naomie Harris. Naomie was in the 007 movie "SkyFall." Naija girls gat worldwide presence. Well, Eku lived in London for a very long time sha. Enjoy the photos. All are from the BN website.

Not a Wedding Dress for Me: Truly Zac Posen

It's one of my resolutions not to be a downer or talk bad about stuff (, people, etc.) but I had to say something about this Truly Zac Posen collection for David's Bridal. Now, I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So, I'll go ahead and throw it out there. You can see your own style your own way, but I am not a fan of this new collection of Zac Posen's. The whole bustier thing for a wedding dress is coming off a little too strong and obvious for me. I guess I prefer softer and more subtle cuts and silhouettes. The bustier tops draw my attention to the wrong areas... not the boobs... not the woman's waist, but the curve of the bottom of the top (bustier) of the dress.

Then, right below the hip, the obvious end of the fit and beginning of the fish tail is just off! Again, I'm just saying it's not my style but feel free to love it. The prices are good, I guess: David's Bridal. Can't complain there. Just not my style. There are however one or two dresses that made my cut. See the last photo on this post... xoxo

Loving the Vanity Fair's 20th Annual Hollywood Issue Cover

I was just going through my Facebook page and ran into a photo that I absolutely positively love. I mean LOVEEEEE! Lupita is at the center of the photo, looking hot and modestly revealing her six pack underneath her gold dress. But Julia Roberts' long legs emphasized by her pointy black heels, sitting most comfortably on hot Idris Elba's thighs is, I think, the most catching part of the cover. Julia's smile... as radiant and contagious as ever. I love this photo. Words can't express the many sentiments on the faces of such a diverse group of actors on one page... one photograph. Annie Leibovitz did an AMAZING job with the photography.
