Celebrity 1

Featured Guest Article By Maria Joyce

Celebrity style is such a big deal that countless magazines (Seventeen, Cosmopolitan) literally BASE themselves off documenting what each celebrity wore/wears (other than trying to keep tabs on their personal lives). Celebrity Style Guide is a blog that focuses on how one can pull of celebrity looks. The recent Met Gala had social media companies like Buzzfeed.com basing its content on documenting what each celebrity wore, and details about their dresses.
So, you might want to avoid the pitfalls that come with imitating celebrity style to be more on point and up your lookbook or #OOTD game. Luckily, for you, we’ve compiled a list of dos and don’ts to guide you better regarding celebrity style.

Anya Hindmarch Resort 2016 Collection Channels Rainbow Brite

The synopsis of the Rainbow Brite cartoon is as follows: “The adventures of the color protector and her friends (sidekick Twink, the color kids, her horse Starlite, and her human friend Brian).” – IMDb.com
Just in case you are not an 80s baby, I thought I would give a brief intro before sharing the images from the new collection by Anya Hindmarch.  Rainbow Brite was one of my favorite cartoon shows growing up and whenever I see rainbows on anything I tend to think of the show to this very day!

Beyoncé has done it again. Traveling the world with her amazing crew of talent and skilled professionals; almost like a huge circus, with every bling, bells and whistles. Her mission is simple, to inspire and empower the nation. Her 2013 world tour has received rave reviews of 5 stars from europe to america. Everyone is speaking how on point is the performance. And what’s so amazing is she has no new album out yet, she is still riding the surf of her last album, 4.

What interests me are the selection of fashion pieces she is wearing in her performances. High fashion- couture pieces that fit her body shape beautiful and flawlessly. But, knowing her, they mean more than just fashion, her selection speaks power, embracing femininity, being an  independent woman is cool, loving your life, and going after your dreams above and beyond.  Continue Reading

Whether you watch show or not, you probably already know that “Olivia Pope” played by Kerry Washington, is becoming somewhat of a fashion (character) icon through this popular TV show. Although the shows and characters are drastically different, you could compare the definite buzz and attention around Olivia’s exquisitely chic looks to the interest in Carrie’s eclectic designer wardrobe in the days of Sex In The City’s popularity. Olivia’s looks may not have the same extent of “trendy” interest, but there is a similar fashionable interest in each character’s wardrobe. It makes the show even more interesting to watch because Kerry is great in the character and is well matched with the on point wardrobe.

Solange Knowles may not be on a global takeover tour like her big sister, but she is definitely dominating on the local front, especially here in NYC.  Even though she is a fairly new resident to Brooklyn, she epitomizes much of the eclectic and creative vibe that resides there. Not to be confused with the hipster subculture movement alive and well in BK, Solange has a special way of making the past new again.

She’s featured in Brooklyn Magazine showcasing her unique “throwback” style, as she discusses how she has embraced the past and how she’s discovering to live in the present.

Known to be a trend creator not  follower, Solange continues to be an “it girl” with a great sensibility for mixing past and present in her style. It doesn’t hurt that she seems to be born of another time and glows with a beautiful old soul. Continue Reading

The Great Gatsby – My Movie, Music, and Menswear Fashion Review

I have not been this excited to see a movie in awhile. It made me smile just to see all of the trailers, which I felt were so visually hypnotic… and so crazy good. As you now know this movie is now in theaters nationwide as of Friday, May 10th. I was originally going to write a post about The Great Gatsby before it came out, but decided I could speak to it better once I had actually seen it.

Even though the event is truly about the exhibition and the fundraising efforts for the institute, the red carpet is the kickoff (and extra highlight) of the exhibition. I’m quite sure that by now you have seen the thousands of images online and read the reviews for this year’s Met Gala red carpet arrivals, as most blogs put up their posts the next morning or that night. However, I’m late to the party as usual, because I like to do my research and make sure I comb through as many images as possible and include background info. So finally, here it is…
