43 year old actress, Taraji P. Henson, is looking absolutely amazing on the cover of Upscale Magazine this month. And look at those eyebrows! Fierce!!! For the shoot Taraji wore a Nicolas Jesbran jeweled romper. I’m loving it!
In this issue, the sexy mom of a 19-year-old son talks about what happened after her Oscar nomination, her real friends and being a black actress in Hollywood:
On what happened after her Oscar nomination and Tyler Perry: “People were like, ‘you just get nominated for an Oscar and the first movie you do is a Tyler Perry film?’ Well, it’s not like Scorsese called me! Tyler was the only call i got the day after the Oscars. And he gave me a quote. Up until then, I had no quote. I was getting paid pennies to do movies. Tyler treated me like a queen.” (more…)
Women are always bombarded with advice on how to get a man or keep a man. It’s not very often someone speaks out on how successful women can be happily single. Former Destiny’s Child member, LeToya Luckett, is a single lady and one of the newest castmembers on VH-1′s hit show “Single Ladies,” where she portrays record exec Felicia Price, a deliciously evil boss chick. Beginning of the year is the perfect time for her to share her single lady tips. I find them really relevant in today’s world because more women are making it to the top, and finding a man who’s not threatened by a woman’s success can be really difficult. Check it out:
Fix yourself before you get into a relationship.
You hear it all the time growing up: in order to love someone else you have to love yourself. That is the truest statement.You gotta clean house. It’s things that you see growing up that you think is right because you saw it that way, that you have to say, ‘Wait a minute, hold on, that might not fit me. I want to change that part, I want to break that generational curse. I want to not be afraid to love. I don’t want to be insecure, I want … like, you literally have to fall in love with yourself before you can give yourself, in a relationship.’ A lot of time we, as women, find ourselves cooking, cleaning, loving, being the therapist, the pastor, the everything. And by the end of the relationship you’re exhausted, left with nothing and you’ve made so many deposits, and there have been so many withdrawals that you have nothing left. And I refuse! (more…)
Naomi Campbell sure knows how to pick ’em…billionaires that is. Naomi and Nigerian billionaire Kola Aluko were first linked together back in October 2013 when they were photographed shopping in Paris. But everyone knows it’s just a rumour until Page Six reports it:
Naomi Campbell may have been spotted in Kenya with her ex- boyfriend, Formula One mogul Flavio Briatore, but the supermodel is still casually seeing Nigerian oil mogul Kola Aluko.
Campbell and Aluko were first linked together back in October, when the two were photographed shopping in Paris. But the pair reunited in London last week, when Campbell and Aluko were spotted taking in the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. A source insists the two are just friends, saying, “They have a close friendship and maintain that friendship.” (more…)
Happy New Year! Can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I blogged. Took a bit of a break. How better to begin the new year with a fashion tip illustrated by none other that King Bey! She’s already having an amazing year with her surprise, self titled album release. Beyoncé ushered in the New Year at Versace’s mansion in Miami. Wouldn’t it just be rude to be invited to the Versace mansion and not wear a hint of Versace? I love Versace! Still do their scarves every now and then…absolutely timeless. Seems like Versace is making a huge come-back. Bey paid homage with her all Versace errythang get-up. She wore a Versace Silk coat, Versace Barocco Pop Splash Silk Shirt ($1225), matching shorts, and Versace’s Medusa Platform Sandals ($895). (more…)

I’m back after taking a holiday of sorts. Kisumu is a great town! Now to the matter at hand: Naomi Campbell unveiled the leather case on Tuesday along with the replica World Cup which is given to winners. Luxury handbag and luggage maker, Louis Vuitton, has designed and crafted the trophy case for the cup. Naomi installed the trophy in the luxury case, handing it with gloves as tradition requires only winners of the cup may touch it. She still looks amazing in spite of her age! More pics of Naomi with the case after the break. (more…)
