Covergirls…Jennifer Hudson in Vogue!

There had been rumors for a while that Jennifer Hudson was going to be the next covergirl for Vogue Magazine. Well, guess what? They’re true, lol. Ms. Hudson graces the cover of the March issue of Vogue, the ‘Power Isuue.’ The photos were taken at the Apollo Theater in Harlem by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. I love Jennifer Hudson, but these photos aren’t too flattering. Oh well, at least she got the cover, that’s a difficult feat to pull off. In the photo spread, Jennifer wears gowns by Carolina Herrera and J. Mendel. She has yet to make a wrong fashion choice during this year’s award season. I thought she just had impeccable fashion sense, but apparently she’s being styled by none other than Vogue’s Andre Leon Talley, the same person who wrote the article that accompanies the pictures. In the article she talks about her visits to Vera Wang and Oscar de la Renta fitting rooms. It’s nice to see designers making clothes for regular girls.

Inspired Style…Maria Menounos

Yellow is going to be the color this spring, and ET correspondent Maria Menounos wears it well. This look that she’s sporting will be great for the summer. The picks I chose are more casual than the Maria’s actual look, but I think the same effect is achieved.

Kelis in Uptown Magazine

Here’s another Kelis photo shoot. This time it’s for an article in Uptown Magazine. It’s another shoot done before she dyed her hair blond, and again it just shows how much better her short cut looks with the darker color. Kelis is one of my faves, I adore her style. She looks great as usual, I wish I could have the white dress she’s wearing. Get it batch!

Petra Nemcova…The New Tyra Banks?

Model Petra Nemcova is following in the steps of Tyra Banks with her own tv series. Nemcova will be the star of the Petra Nemcova Project for TLC beginning this summer. The show is being described as “grittier” than series such as America’s Next Top Model. It will follow girls from all around the world as they audition for a contract with a top New York modeling agency. Petra’s role will be to act as a guide for the girls and help them with the world of modeling. Producer Dave Broom insists that the Petra Nemcova Project will be different from all the other modeling competition shows out there.

“With no disrespect, those shows are the make-believe world of modeling. We’re doing the reality,” he said. “This isn’t a gameshow. You’re not going to get the clawing and bitch-slapping you get in the other shows. The drama here is real and not put together.”

I doubt this show will have the success of Top Model, but you never know. I think part of the success of Top Model is the drama that goes on behind the scenes. I think viewers are only marginally entertained by the ‘serious’ aspect of the show.

M by Madonna…It’s Coming

I’ve mentioned Madonna’s M by Madonna line for H&M a couple of times. But as spring approaches, so does more news on this anticipated collaboration. According to a press release sent out by H&M, the line will hit stores world wide on March 22. Save that date ladies. The last time H&M and Madonna got together, the clothing they produced was less than desirable. Yet based on photos from the line’s ad campaign, I think this time the duo will achieve success this time. The press release gives us a hint of what’s to come from the collection:

The unique yet classic “M by Madonna” line includes glamorous tops, trendy lumber jackets, tailored blazers and other apparel, such as shirt dresses and kimono dresses. A Madonna favorite is a stylish trench coat in cotton poplin or leather. The palette is primarily a neutral one – white, black, khaki and grey. Fabrics range from silk, wool and viscose jersey to body-sculpting lycra. The entire line is embellished with a small “M” logo on linings, zippers and buttons. In addition, the “M by Madonna” look includes a wide assortment of accessories – sunglasses, party bags, clutches and narrow leather belts.

What?Huh?…Imogen Heap

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

The Grammys, just like all other awards shows, is a hot spot for best dressed celebs. But as usual there’s always someone who wants to be ‘creative’ with their look, maybe in an attempt to prove that they’re really an ‘artist.’ This year that person was Imogen Heap. Honestly I don’t really know who she is. I just know that she looked horrible. Note to batches across the world, this is not how you work the red carpet.

Covergirls…Raven Symone in Ebony

Former ‘Cosby kid’ Raven Symone graces the latest cover of Ebony Magazine. In the article accompanying the pics, Raven speaks about how she’s worth $400 million, as a result of her work with Disney. Between the Cheetah Girls movies, That’s So Raven, and her perfume line, she’s done well with Disney. I love Raven because she’s a role model for little girls, showing that you don’t have to be super skinny to be successful in the entertainment industry. Clearly life after The Cosby Show has been great for her.

New York Fashion Week 2007…Vera Wang

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Although Vera Wang is probably most known for her wedding dress designs, she does actually design ready-to-wear collections. Yesterday her fall collection made it’s Fashion Week debut. I’m a huge fan of Wang’s work, identifiable by it’s clean lines and lush fabrics, but I wasn’t too inspired by her fall collection. There were pieces that I loved, like the looks in the photo above, but the overall feel came off as ‘peasant chic.’ Maybe it was the head-wraps the models were wearing. If you’d like to view the entire collection, head over to Elle.com.

Actress Rachel Bilson is just too cute, lol. I absolutely love her style. Seriously, how many people look this stylish when they’re travelling? If you must have the hoodie she’s wearing you can get it at Girlshop. Unfortunately it’s $300. Oh well, a girl can dream.
