Serena Williams is one of my favorite athletes. Her intensity for her sport gives me life. Working hard is what she does, no excuses. As soon as I saw these images of her, as she headed to The Late Show With David Letterman, I knew I had to share them with you guys. She looked amazing in this red dress. Again, her stylists and makeup artist hit it out of the park!!!
I had to drop off my thoughts about the 2012 BET Awards. Ironically, the same things I liked about the BET award show last year are the same things I enjoyed about the show this past Sunday. I loved “The Real Husbands of Hollywood” skit. I am so glad they are making it into a full fledged show. Sign me up…I know it will be hilarious. And, wow…the Whitney Houston tribute was soo touching.
Two years in a row, my favorite artists were the winners of the Best International Act (Africa) category. Congrats to Wizkid! Check out two of my favorite songs of the moment by Wizkid.
For the past few years, Monica’s style has been right up my alley. She looked amazing on the red carpet. That structured blazer and the sequined pants were everything! Sexy but classy all at the same time and of course her makeup and hair was on point as usual.
There is no point talking about how great Chris Brown’s performance was or how passionately Adele sang at the show last night, because Beyonce stole the show. In retrospect, her baby glow was evident throughout her performance of “Love on top”. Congrats to her and Jay-Z!!!
I love her makeup, especially the subtle coral lips which complimented her dress perfectly.

I accidentally found myself watching the 2011 ESPY Awards a few hours ago. But I am happy I did, because I am truly inspired by the man who won the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, Dewey Bozella. His story of how the prison boxing program taught him never to give up, re-energized me. Against all odds, his murder conviction was overturned and he was set free after 26 years of imprisonment. No matter the odds against us and no matter what we think about ourselves and our abilities….we can do anything we put our minds to.
But you guys know me, I couldn’t help but share my favorite looks of the night 😉
Kerry Washington. She was my favorite of the night...she looked amazing from head to toe. The silver/ gunmetal eyeshadow was the biz.
Emmanuelle Chriqui...cute look.
Serena William....She looked great!!!
I also loved her makeup look. Kudos to her Makeup Artist!
L.I.F.T = Looks I’m Feeling Today!! I really enjoyed watching the 2011 BET Awards last night. The host, Kevin Hart, was too funny. It kinda hurt laughing so hard. The “Real Husbands of Hollywood” parody sketch were simply hilarious. I also watched the pre-award show and it was nice seeing the all the Nominees for Best International Act (Africa). But I was even more excited that 2Face Idibia and D’ Banj were the big winners of that category. The highlight of the show for me, were the performances by Chris Brown, Kelly Rowland and Patti LaBelle. So, on to the the important stuff 🙂
As for the fashions and makeup looks, ummmm, I wasn’t really wowed, but I did like Tracee Ellis Ross and Kelly Rowland’s looks. I also liked Eve’s hairstyle at the pre-award show performance.
Everyone is talking about it…the Royal wedding. Weddings like this only come around once in a while, so I made sure I had my eyes out for the “Fashions” of the day.
Most of the guests came correct with very classy and timeless looks. This might seem weird, but out of all the fashion looks this morning, I was most looking forward to seeing what Victoria Beckham would wear to the Royal wedding. She did not disappoint. Her hat was stunning and even with her pregnancy, she was rocked those 6 inch Christian Louboutin heels like a CHAMP!

Princess Beatrice of York (the daughter of Sarah, Duchess of York) also turned it out. Her headgear, which was created by Milliner Philip Treacy, was beautiful. I love bows, so the bigger the better. As for her makeup, I liked her smokey eye and nude-ish pink lips. I also loved her dress at the pre-wedding party the night before.
I’m getting ready to watch the Grammys, but I wanted to share these images I came across today (from the Pre-Grammy Gala and Salute to Industry Icons Honoring David Geffen). The Gala took place last night and Jennifer Hudson was on FIRE!!! She looks amazing in that dress. Her makeup is on point! I am feeling her whole look.

To create this look, I would use MAC Woodwinked eyeshadow on the lid and MAC Bronze eyeshadow in the crease, with a black liquid liner and false lashes. For the lips, I would use MAC Lady bug lipstick.
Jennifer Hudson...I love her dress.
I really think Miley Cyrus stood out as well. Her makeup was natural but very flattering.

I also loved seeing Brandy and Monica together. They both looked great! Remember the song “The Boy is Mine”?
