Urban Style Review
This month I’m going to begin by giving two thumbs up to the X Factor girl group's stylist for Little Mix. What lovely outfits they wore in the run up to the festive season live on This Morning recently. Leigh-Anne Pinnock appeared on with mid-morning show with her fellow band mates wearing a River Island Diamond Jacquard cropped sweatshirt and matching Jacquard smart trousers also from the brand. All ensembles are grown and sexy with a stunning choice of footwear for each. Huge props to their stylist. They look fab!
Going out with a bang, Rihanna has released her last Fall Collection for River Island which includes a lot of tartan and plaid. Male celebs are embracing plaid also. Big Sean recently rocked a Supreme plaid bomber jacket for his performance this past weekend at the Powerhouse 2013 Concert. The comfy cotton jacket features a snap front closure, and ribbed collar, cuffs, and waistband. Pretty fly, fellas grab yours here.
Gorgeous British actress Naomie Harris dazzled at the ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ Hollywood premiere the other night, wearing a Vionnet Spring 2014 gown, completing her look with minimal makeup and flawless hair. This may very well be my favourite movie premiere look of the month.
Now this is what I call style, I'm so impressed I just had to share it with you. Nicole Richie was spotted heading out for lunch with a friend in West Hollywood wearing a fresh white button down with wide-legged jeans and one of the most stunning blazers I've seen in a long while. Saint Laurent amazing single-button red blazer definitely appeared to be the wow-factor of Nicole's look, casually slung over the shoulders. She accessorized with a Balenciaga carryall handbag, and House of Harlow sun glasses. This is what we call winning in the fashion department.
The 2013 Soul Train Music Awards took place this month live from Las Vegas. Ashanti looked stunning in a beautifully embellished Reeves gown, which complimented her new bob hairstyle. My second favourite look was Janelle Monae who rocked her signature hairstyle in a chosen black and white outfit by Alexandre Vauthier paired with Jimmy Choo Fey sandals and a DVF clutch bag. I'm in love with her shoes.
Continuing with the prestigious Soul Train Awards soiree, Two thirds of TGT Tyrese and Tank brought their A-game in the way of suit & ties to the ceremony and looked pretty suave whilst doing so. Tank suit wins, swapping Tyrese's shoes to go with Tank's 'fit et voila! Bobby V was also in attendance. He looked adorable on the red carpet, wearing a red velvet jacket with Maison Martin Margiela high top sneakers. Work Bobby.
Kim Kardashian is back on the fashion scene following the birth of her first child baby North West. She opted for a classic black and white outfit out and about in the Hollywood Hills with her daughter, wearing a TopShop roll back crop tee with a black pencil skirt and Céline ankle-strap heels. She was then spotted again later this month, in New York City recently in a Veronique Leroy mesh high neck long-sleeve bodysuit, full length fitted skirt, and those ever-so-chic Tom Ford sandals.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian looked so cute as a couple rocking whites and denim out and about in New York City also. I absolutely love Kim's Saint Laurent shredded embellished chain jeans, and Kanye's cute little tasselled brown suede moccasins. Kim's coat is also a winner, they are definitely the most fashionable celebrity couple right now.
Chris Brown's (on-and-off) girl Karrueche Tran has revealed her new clothing range 'The Kill' Society,' via Instagram. Fans can expect sporty separates, chilled and comfy unisex pieces, black and white branded sweatshirts, midi shorts, and cute cropped tops. Karrueche is adorable. I love her sense of style. Coming soon.
Pharrell has been named 'Hitmaker of the Year' by GQ Magazine’s December 2013 issue, and rightly so following the hugely successful singles that he featured on; 'Get lucky' and 'Blurred Lines'. 40-year-old Mr Williams who doesn't even look a day older than 25, shares his honourable title of 'Man of the Year' accolade with Justin Timberlake and Kendrick Lamar. Pharrell also happens to have one of the flyest, most envied approach to male fashion and style out there. He appears in next month's issue of GQ wearing a Comme des Garçons Play tee, BBC jeans, Céline leopard-print slip-ons, and a blue Gucci coat. Crazy fly.
Fabolous is certainly in support of Jay Z's recent Barney’s collection launch. The rapper was spotted this past weekend at Privé in Atlanta rocking the hell out of a pair of Fall 2011 collection Chanel sneakers, along with a python-brimmed leather snapback, embroidered with 'Brooklyn' lettering and an official Barneys New York Holiday Emblem.
I can’t wait to bring you fashion gifts during Christmas for December, until next time! Keep it locked.
