Stars turned out for KWL’s 4th Annual Sports And Entertainment Celebration at Manon in NYC. The who’s who in sports and entertainment partied in polished looks.
Check out the fête’s hottest ensembles: Selita Ebanks was white hot in a $595 Haute Hippie Oversized Blazer Dress. No flaws here.
I live for each Zawe Ashton fashion moment and the English actress showed off her svelte physique at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards in a $1,895 Victoria Beckham High Neck Fitted Dress. Her curve-hugging dress features a high neck and mesh back. Gorgeous!

Beyoncé has been having some fun with her beauty looks lately! After rocking a wavy bob for The 56th Annual Grammy Awards, she uploaded new flicks to Tumblr of her rocking waist length blonde box braids.
Although she’s been into this ‘do for years, there’s something about this waist length blonde that feels fresh, and looks absolutely fire! I’m feeling this much more than the wavy bob.
What do you think? Take a closer look below:
American Apparel‘s newest lingerie model is 62-year-old Jacky O’Shaughnessy, a silver-haired beaut whose body looks better than many women half her age. The retailer debuted her photo on Instagram, with the caption “Sexy has no expiration date.” Indeed. Apparently, scouts at American Apparel spotted her in an NYC restaurant and was so taken with her, they asked her to appear in their ads. The rest is history! What do you think ? (Styleite)
• We already adore Kurt Geiger‘s footwear, and now the Britton is offering more to love, unveiling its first handbag range, B-Series. You will find carryalls of all stripes: sleek envelope clutches, tassled buckle bags, structured satchels, and petite crossbodys, all with gold metal bar detailing. I see about four pieces I already need! You can peep the whole collection at Vogue UK, and shop online at Kurt Geiger’s website. (Vogue UK)
• The Kardashians are branching out into eyewear, releasing a limited edition line of aviator sunglasses. The five-piece range of gold-plated sunnies come in two sizes each, petite and oversized, and are embossed with the sisters’ double K logo. You can choose between 5 different colored lenses, and each pair comes in a gold carrying case. How much will these fancy shades set you back? Oh, about $250 bucks! If you’re willing to shill out that much, the sunglasses are available at the Kardasian Eyewear website. (Daily Mail)

Meet the father of TV personality Eku Edewor and her twin sister Kessiana.
Yesterday, the Studio 53 Extra co-host’s father turned a year older. She sent a Happy Birthday shout out to him with a sweet photo of herself, Kessiana and him together.
“Happy Birthday Daddy!!! #family #love #daddystillgotit #ageaintnothingbutanumber #bithday” she captioned the image.
Judging from the way Eku rests on her father, it clearly shows no matter how old you are, you’ll still be daddy’s little girl.
Miley Cyrus’s MTV Unplugged Ashish Spring 2014 Embellished and Distressed Boyfriend Denim Jacket and Jeans.
Miley Cyrus crooned and gyrated during her MTV Unplugged performance in an Ashish Spring 2014 Embellished and Distressed Boyfriend Denim Jacket and Jeans. Madonna joined her onstage in custom Fausto Puglisi: cowboy hats, tongue wags, and all. On the runway, the look was more covered than Miley’s spin, with a plaid shirt layered underneath. For a stage performance? I liked this! It gave me rhinestone cowboy meets 90′s TLC and I was here for it.
Check out the runway look:
Rihanna’s New York City Acne Fall 2013 Blue Major Oversized Leather Jacket and Another Enemy Black FU Hoodie.
Rihanna was all bundled up as she headed to the airport in search of warmer temperatures. For her travels, she slipped into a $4,200 Acne Fall 2013 Major Oversized Leather Jacket, $65 Another Enemy FU Hoodie, and a pair of Timberland boots. Her Fall 2013 blue leather jacket features an exaggerated wide collar, raw edge details, and tonal velvet trim. The sweatshirt comes complete with a FU graphic on the front, CK graphic on the back, double-lined hood, and a pouch pocket. She looks so warm! Must be nice.

Personal style bloggers sometimes make fashion faux pas. But this particular misstep made by That’s Chic‘s Rachel Nguyen really rubbed folks the wrong way.
The 23-year-old staged a shoot documenting her #OOTD. But it wasn’t her white button down, skater skirt, or chunky high heels that caused offense–it was where she took the photos that raised more than a few eyebrows:
Rihanna and Shakira turned the sexy all the way up in their new eye-popping video, “Can’t Remember to Forget You.” The Bajan star and Colombian belly dancing queen gave us plenty of hair flips, twerkin’ hips and ruby-red lips!
In the brand-new visual, the singers get very “hands on” with each other. Prime example:

Barnes and Noble’s Best Selling author, Lala Anthony made promo rounds for her new book ‘The Love Playbook: Rules For Love, Sex and Happiness’ wearing a bold black and white printed coat, leather pants and chic black Louboutins. The actress opted for a pretty shadowy eye and wavy blond tresses. I love that Lala’s been taking more style chances this year and having fun with fashion. I adore the leather pants and pumps, this coat seems to be overwhelming her look. Perhaps a size too big? I think this outfit would have been a hit with a fitted fur in a vibrant hue. Your thoughts?
Newlyweds Bobbi Kristina Brown and Nick Gordon are sharing their thoughts about the negative view some people have of their relationship.
"It put a fire in us," Nick tells Extra. "The critics can say whatever they want to say...it's like we have a force field and that s--t's just bouncing off of it."
"It lit a fire up under our ass and we went haulin', says Bobbi, who earlier this month announced on Twitter that she and Nick had secretly wed.
The pair first announced their engagement in October 2012, breaking the news in a promo for their short-lived reality show The Houstons: On Our Own. One month later, Nick tweeted it was over, tweeting that they were "not engaged or dating," but "just close like we have always been."
Michelle Obama is going to the big game this weekend with adorable first dogs Sunny and Bo!
And am not talking about Super Bowl XLVIII; they're attending the always entertaining Puppy Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 2.
Before all of the precious pooches take center stage on the Animal Planet program, the first lady and her furry friends hosted twelve first and second graders from D.C.'s Harriet Tubman Elementary School and thirteen "rookie" shelter puppies.
The goal: help get the competing canines get in tip-top shape before their highly anticipated debut.
I suggest muting this video to enjoy the adorable kitten, because the background noise is questionable at best and just downright creepy at worst.
But honestly, who really cares about that when there is a little fluffy cat trying to figure out what his reflection is? You'd think that the first time this guy saw himself in the mirror he would fall over from the sight of his sweet, sweet face. But no, this cat wants to fight!
And I've never seen a creature go from confused to angry so quickly. Well, I've seen it before with certain celebrities, but that's not something I want to bring up now because look at the kitten! The poses and shapes he makes with his body border on exorcism-like, but mostly he wants to beat the crap out of that other cat in the mirror. It doesn't work out as planned, but his attempts mean pure joy-watching for us.
Watch the video below and try to pick your favorite moment. You can't! It's all animal gold:
Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron, Christian Bale & More Stars Who Transformed Their Body for a Movie Role.
It's not always just about mentally preparing for a role.
A lot of times, Hollywood actors have also needed to physically alter their appearance in drastic ways to fully become a character for a movie, and that usually includes losing or gaining a significant amount of weight.
We've already experienced a lot of this recently with Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers Club, but that's just the beginning.
Take a look at some more A-listers who either shed or packed on some serious pounds for a film.
Let's just call this the week of Beyoncé.
People already can't stop talking about the singer since her smoking hot Grammys performance, but she reminded us all today that she has been capturing hearts for quite some time now.
She took to Instagram to post this aww-inducing photo from her diaper days, which she simply captioned, "tbt." In the pic, baby Bey shyly smiles at the camera, wearing a light pink dress, white shoes and gold earrings.
Even back then, she knew how to command the spotlight!
Inspired by Pink's epic performance at the Grammys, perhaps?
Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian took their workout routines to new heights today—literally—by trying aerial acrobatics, the hoops-and-ropes-utilizing sport/art form that Pink has made a fixture of her stage act.
And scored herself a ridiculous(ly amazing) body while doing so!
"Kourt and I tried some aerial workouts today! A first for us!!! #getitright #GetItTight," Khloé wrote on Instagram. The sisters looked to be having a blast, both of them taking turns attaining lift-off on the hoop and stretchy purple aerial silk, known technically as a hammock among the circus set.
Lordes is a 17 year old singer who became popular with her hit song " Royals". Royals got its way to No1 on the billboard chart and she bagged two awards at this year's Grammy for Best pop vocal performance and Song of the year. Most people criticized her saying she is just claiming 17 year old when she has the look of a 40 year old woman. To prove she isn't lying, She released her birth certificate which proves she was born on 7 Nov 1996. If you were to guess Lordes age what would it be?
Timi Dakolo shared new photos of his wife Busola with the caption
"There are wives and there are WIVES! It would amaze you how far you can go from the point where you think its the end and your wife assures you with 'I promise you everything and I said, forever is just a start' he quipped"
I must confess that she is such a cutie
See more photos of his wife and their one month old daughter below:
Annie shared pictures of her post baby figure wearing a Jacket, denim trouser paired with sneakers. Well done gurl...
Popular Yoruba actress, Opeyemi Aiyeola got married five years ago and ever since then she relocated to the United Kingdom. The beautiful mother of two, recently visited Nigeria with her sons - the second boy is Samuel, he is three years old while the first boy is six.

New mom Halle Berry looked striking at the 9th annual Acapulco Film Festival in a $293 Chain Embellished Blake Dress from All Saints. Nude makeup and simple silver sandals finished her look. She really doesn’t need a lot to pop! Her sold out lightweight evening dress is made of light georgette fabric and boasts silver finished plates and metallic chains. Hot! You can never go wrong with a little black dress.

Barneys New York’s spring campaign will feature 17 transgendered men and women, all photographed in black and white by Bruce Weber. The ads will appear in a portfolio style, as opposed to the usual mailer the retailer sends out. Titled “Brothers, Sisters, Sons, and Daughters” the campaign also tells the stories of each subject, penned by Vanity Fair contributing editor Patricia Bosworth. Barneys creative director Dennis Freedman explained his decision to use trans models for this campaign: ”…such extraordinary progress has been made in the last few years for the lesbian, gay and bisexual community, but it’s striking how the transgender community has been left behind. It’s disturbing and upsetting to see that.” (WWD)
Yesterday, I reported that J.Crew boss Mickey Drexler was planning on lowering the steep price points the store has become known for. Drexler promised “friendlier” (which we, and… everyone else assumed meant lower) prices coming this spring, but J.Crew has come out today to clarify the CEO’s words: “We are simply maintaining a balance of pricing across the board and better communicating to our customers what we have and why it is worth the price it is,” Womp. “Emphasis for us is always on the quality and design at best possible price.” So, they’re instead going to try to convince us that paying $112 for a cotton popover with a couple plastic jewels sewed on the collar is totally reasonable because… it’s from J.Crew? Color me disappointed! (Vogue UK)
Kanye West is hard at work campaigning for a Vogue cover for his boo Kim Kardashian. The rapper allegedly met with Anna Wintour again, demanding an explanation as to why she saw it fit to put Girls‘s Lena Dunham on the February issue, while Kim has yet to be given her moment in the sun. According to a source, Kanye says that Kim is “just as talented as Lena, if not more so.” They gave no information as to what Kim’s superior talents actually are, but I’m sure appearing on a reality show and “designing” affordable clothing with your sisters is far more challenging than writing, directing, and starring in your own award-winning television series. This source also says that Wintour is thinking about getting Kim on a foreign iteration of the Fashion Bible, but isn’t too keen on the idea of her gracing the American version. Hmm. I wish Kerry Washington had someone this hell-bent on getting her a Vogue cover! Nnamdi, it’s time to step up! (Radar)
Lala Anthony continued to promote her book, The Love Playbook, on Sirius XM in black pants, blue camo pumps, and the same Augustin Teboul Black Crochet Sweater spied on model Miranda Kerr. Both ladies went the black pants route, though Miranda paired her ensemble with Saint Laurent zip booties and a Givenchy bag.
The loose knit topper can be worn off the shoulder for extra sass. I like both looks, but have a slight preference for Miranda’s edgy ensemble. She looks hot!

Happy Thursday everyone!
Stars hit the red carpet this week at The Trumpet Awards in Atlanta and premieres and store openings from the Big Apple to the UK.
Let’s get into the week’s hottest looks! Idris Elba was suited up at the Nelson Mandela Gala in Berlin. Is he fine or what?
Along with Ciara, Gwen Stefani knows a thing or three about maternity chic!
She was spied in Hollywood in an all black look, punctuated by cut out sandals, a $229 Paige Lenny Denim Zip Jacket, and $250 Leopard Stella McCartney Square Acetate Sunglasses. Her red lips stay poppin! Her slim fit denim jacket has coated leather sleeves and Her brown tortoise sunglasses have wayfarer frames and green lenses. Lovely, Gwen is so casually cool! PS Her shoes are sick.

Sick of the Beyoncé headlines yet? No? Neither am I, which is good because the news just keeps on coming. What’s the latest buzz on Queen B? Rutgers University has modeled a class after her. The course, developed by doctoral student and lecturer in the school’s Department of Women’s and Gender Studies Kevin Allred, is called “Politicizing Beyoncé.”
It’s official: the party is off!
It looks like the rumors about Oprah Winfrey canceling her massive birthday gala are true. E! News reports the media mogul — who turns the big 6-0 today! — called off her blowout bash because she has too many friends.
According to a source, “The guest list was getting out of control so she decided to cancel” and celebrate without the glitz and glam this year.
The OWN CEO kicked off her birthday in exercise clothes! She invited her closest friends for a spin class at West Hollywood’s SoulCycle and she described it was the “best birthday experience ever!”
It’s seems like O is just over the hype these days. Along with calling off her b-day celebration, she also revealed plans to retire as the cover star of her monthly magazine. Could this be a sign that she’s ready to slow down? Only time shall tell.
It's hard to believe Halle Berry gave birth to little Maceo less than four months ago!
The 47-year-old actress hit the red carpet at the 2014 Acapulco Film Festival on Wednesday, Jan. 29, for the first time since welcoming her and Olivier Martinez's baby in October 2013. The mom of two flaunted her svelte figure in a black and silver All Saints dress—showing some cleavage and a sexy flash of skin on the side.
Halle was honored at the festival and received the Silver Jaguar Award, the highest honor awarded by the Festival Internacional de Cine Acapulco. She's also signed on to CBS' new show Extant, which is expected to premiere in July 2014.
Love this! The old woman below blew me away..
Today’s feature is strictly for the fellas!
Behold, Ron Bass’s Graffiti Inspired Black and White Leather Jacket. The custom piece has white/black on the front, and a rainbow of colors on the back.

Who Rocked it Better? Rihanna vs. Jordin Sparks in Torn by Ronny Kobo’s Moria White Turtleneck Dress.
Jordin Sparks and boyfriend Jason DeRulo lit up the red carpet at the New York Red, White and Black Super Bowl Party at WIP last night! For the occasion, Jordin paired cream pumps with the same $392 Torn by Ronny Kobo White Turtleneck Moria Dress Rihanna wore while out in New York in November. Of course Rihanna added some sass to the dress with gold chains, Giuseppe Zanotti Ester Boots, large hoop earrings, and her infamous Doobie hairstyle.
The curve-hugging mini dress has a modern, ribbed texture and a mock neckline. Ah, Jordin is giving safe, Rihanna is giving saucy. I really wonder what it would look like if Jordin rocked thigh highs, a dark lip, and multiple gold chains. I think it’d be kinda hot!
At any rate, I think both ladies look great. If I had to choose, I’d say Rihanna, just for making a pretty plain dress interesting.

Beyonce shared more cute pictures of her family and friends on her tumblr.
Blue Ivy is clearly daddy's little girl.
Seriously. Just look at how Jay Z simply beams with pride as he gazes at his little one in this photo that Beyoncé just posted to her Tumblr.
While the pic was actually taken at a party celebrating Hova's 44th birthday back in December, it's obviously new to us.
And really, who cares how old a snap is when it's this adorable, right?
Of course, the same can definitely be said for another shot Bey shared, which shows her hubby lovingly lifting his wife up in the air as both happily smile at each other.
.Can the carters get any cuter?

Dubbed the “Love Me or Leave Me” shoe, Ehsani re-imagines the classic in primary colors and python print, with gold tone detailing and even a lock charm. The shoes are due out Feb. 7th, with an exclusive launch at Ehsani’s LA boutique Feb 1st. Would you rock ‘em?
• I was too busy ogling Beyoncé‘s see-through Michael Costello dress at the Grammys to notice all the bling she was wearing that night. And it was a lot–and it was VERY expensive. According to the Huffington Post, Yoncé was outfitted in about $10 million dollars worth of Lorraine Schwartz jewels, including those light catching diamond-encrusted chandelier earrings and enormous cocktail rings on nearly every finger. Really, could you expect anything less from the Queen? (Huff Post)
For most J.Crew fans, their love for the brand is much deeper than their pockets. But this Spring, J.Crewsies all over America shall be granted sweet relief, as CEO Mickey Drexler says the retailer will lower their prices to accommodate customers who simply can’t justify paying an arm and a leg for a printed cotton pullover: “you’ll see our prices much more friendly this year,” he told WWD. “We can’t compete with designers.” You’ll still find the brand’s pricey “Collection” range, but the mid-range products will cost less than before. “I grew up in the Bronx,” he said. “I resent the masses thing. I find the world isn’t that high-integrity. Maybe I grew up not being able to afford nice things, but it shouldn’t be that way. I wanted nice clothes that aren’t crazily priced.” I don’t know whether this is good or bad news for my wallet! (WWD)
