Best Wedding Dance Ever

Ok, so about 4 people have emailed this to me and I thought it was THE BOMB! Like seriously, I want to choreograph my first dance too--Mike already said Hell-to-the-naw. The bride and groom were both awesome. I cant wait to do the sprinkler! They worked it out!

Style Stars-Hot looks on the Red Carpet---and some that are NOT

LOVED IT!
Here are some of my favorite recent celebrity looks:
Although her career has seemed to be stalled, Christina Milian looks supa dupa fly in this strapless dress. Dress pockets have been my obsession for the past few months. Her shoes are hot as well!
Kerry Washington has been consistently classy and fly on the red carpet.


I'm not in love with this look (could do without the hose) but this is a MAJOR step up for Serena, in my opinion. She always looks a little bit wrong...but I'm not mad at her here.
So again, I am not IN LOVE with this look but Katie has been looking SO STIFF and OLD lately. Although the velvet is not my fav...I think she looks young and fresh here.
So, LC and Heidi may disagree on their show, but they can agree on the need for great outerwear this season. I want Lauren's coat for my collection.
Cute and casual. Bee looks great in a simple white tee and jeans. The accessories are what do it and I LOVE the shoes.

Hated It!
Here are some of my least favorite red carpet looks:
The sixties A-line minis are all the rage this season, but this one is doing wayyy tooooo much! This dress reminds me of Boomerang when they are in the art class and the little girl describes her collage. (If you don't know what I'm talking about never mind...lol)
Kelly's Dante's Inferno inspired gown is TERRIBLE. She has a great body and can pull off so much but this is not cute!

Take my word for it when I say the rest of the gown was covered with bows and lace too. Unless she was going to an 80's themed prom (which she wasn't) Lucy was wrong for this one.
Now I feel bad for talking about Venus, because I actually really like her hair...and her jeans and a t-shirt fit cute. But overall, she still looks crusty. A nice pair of earrings and some makeup would have changed the whole look.
This is the second time J-Hud has graced my worst-dressed list. The gown itself is OK, but the shrug fits improperly and just doesn't look right, in my opinion.
OK, no Trina. The high waisted jean is definitely the thing, but those shoes are awful and her accessories are overdone. Most importantly, her $19.99, built-into-the-band, wig is horrible.
I don't even know what to say about this Sharon Stone ensemble. Leather, feathers and fur?
This was not a red carpet look, but still terrible enough to be discussed. WTF MJ?

Soldier Boy Ballet

video

I just thought this was hilarious. Its amazing how other cultures embrace our music and dances. A few weeks back I saw some young white kids doing the Soldier Boy at a hotel and was shocked. This video had me rolling on the floor. My man in the front is GETTING IT--with his perfect arabesques! Isn't crazy how hip hop can be such an international success but we still get called the "N" word on a regular basis?

Grey's is back!


Hey there all you Grey's Anatomy fans! (i.e. Vee, Brit, and my mom)

Are you sooo very excited the Seattle Grace professionals are back in your lives every Thursday at 9 again? I am. Even if this season has already gotten pretty hokey and cheesy (such as Issie reviving Bambi or the over-the-top, beat you on the head type symbolism), I still love love love Greys! Even with Isaiah Washington getting the boot, and George deciding to leave Callie, Shonda Rhymes and her staff can do no wrong in my eyes.

So, what did you think of last nights episode?
Do you like Lexie?
Do you think Meredeth is being too hard on her?
Should Derrick move on or will Mer-Der work it out?
How devastated are you that Burketina is no more?
Do you think George is going to leave Callie or was really old guy right?

Name That Child Star (or at least her role and show)

Name That Child Star (or at least her role and show)

CANDACE CAMERON aka D.J. TANNER from Full House/

HINT--She was on a family show playing the oldest sister. In real life, she has an older brother who was also a famous child star!

Dancing with the Worst!

So, in case you didn't know, I love dancing!
Accordingly, my favorite shows are dance shows (i.e. all the SYTYCD posts).

This season's Dancing with the Stars has gotten me all excited. Although there are a lot of D listers and some no-listers at all, I was excited to see what the contestants could do.

My all around favorite is Cheetah Girl, Sabrina Bryan. She is the ish, and although she does have dance training, its mostly in hip hop which is such a far cry from the rigid style of ballroom dance. Race car driver, Helio Castroneves is one of the judges favorites, but I am usually harder on the guys in ballroom, because women usually do the more elaborate movements. I was also pleasantly surprised by Spice Girl, Mel B's performances thus far.

What left me absolutely speechless, were the performances of Floyd Mayweather! I feel bad for talking about him, because he obviously tried soo hard, but then I get over it because he talks soo much shit. He actually had the nerve to tell the judges he was robbed last week because his scores were so low. Did he not see the tape? I was appalled! He was soo serious and soo terrible at the same time. I realize that as an athelete, he does not have the stage presence that many actors and singers do, but still. He was scaring me. Compared to Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith, and Laila Ali, he is making the athletes look bad. I would say he was better than Clyde the Glide from last year though. The judges said he improved this week from last week, but there was really no where for him to go but up.

Check out his first week performance below:

I CAN NOT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SEX AND THE CITY, THE MOVIE HAS BEGUN FILMING!

I can not wait until this movie is released! It is scheduled to hit theaters in May of 2008.

It will star of course, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristen Davis, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall, along with Jennifer Hudson, Jason Lewis, Evan Handler, and more. I am sooo glad they got over they're personal beefs so they could satisfy their many fans and get that money!
Below is a pic from the NYC set:

Red Carpet Fashion Donts




  • So I love Vanessa Williams, and think she is very classy, beautiful, and poised (except for that whole naked photo thing). I even see where she was going with this ensemble, but all the feathers (which are very in right now) were just wayy too much.
  • Debra Messing actually got rave reviews for this Ralph Lauren creation but I hated it. I think it looks very old school prom-ish.


  • Hayden Pantieri's (or however you spell it) dress is swallowing her! She is a petite 18 year old but this dress looks like it is for a pregnant WNBA player.
  • Now we all know Paula is a little bit crazy, but she went too far! The one titty out is never a good look (Lil Kim) even if it is bejeweled.



  • Swiss looks like a gangsta line cook and Eve's shoes are terrible. The dress itself is pretty whack (although metallic is in) I am just not feeling it.
  • LC from The Hills donned one of her own designs, and I give her props for trying. However, I thought the dress was unoriginal, shapeless, and kinda 70's grandma-ish.

  • OK, so T-Pain was a mess at the MTV awards. From the striped shirt, to the piping on the jacket, to the un-ironed under shirt, to the ...(its just all wrong!)
  • Ne-yo looks like a gay bandit!


  • Pharell and Pusha T just look real REGULAR here. I think my bf has that shirt, Pusha.



  • So I thought Kanye and his fiance Alexis, looked pretty whack on the red carpet. Although you cant see 'Ye's sneakers (which weren't cool like Robin Thicke's) you can see his tight ass jacket, different colored pants, skinny and crooked ass bow tie, and you know the white shades were not far away. Alexis looks OK and there is nothing really wrong with her dress. Her hair looks DRY though and that color is not a good look. On the whole, I give then a thumbs down.

  • J Hud looks Horrible! Did she steal some of the Dream girl's wardrobe and just tie on a belt? Aja, I know that's your girl, but she needs to get a stylist and some spanx quick.
And finally,




Lil Mama--WTF?

Red Carpet Fashion Dos

So, as award's season is starting to roll around, we can expect some awesome fashion trends along with some style atrocities. Here are a few of my favs from the recent MTV and Emmys Awards.

Dos:













Rihanna looked fresh and young with this strapless, bright pink, fishtail dress. Love the hair and edgy highlights and nails.



















  • Robin Thicke and his wife Paula Patton make a stylish team. I am loving Paula's 20's inspired dressed and Robin looks cool in his blazer, t-shirt and sneaks.
  • I like Cassie's overall look. The skinny jeans, bling and jeweled halter make a fly casual statement.





  • I am feeling 50's business casual look. Mike hates the shirt collar over the jacket, but I think he looks nice.

  • I am also feeling TI and Tiny's look as a couple. I would have worn a different purse, but all in all, TI looks dapper, and Tiny's dress, belt and shoes are cute.


  • Katherine Heigl at the 2007 Emmy's was stunning in this Zac Posen gown.

  • Kate Walsh from Grey's Anatomy looked fly in this form fitting gown. She is 40ish and her body looks great!.
