The Thigh High Slit Trend

Angelina Jolie is responsible for bringing back this trend.Ever since her infamous 2012 Oscar red carpet leggy episode,the trend has refused to leave.I like it though.It's a good way to show off toned legs.

Oscars 2012 red Carpet.

Celebrities like Rihanna and Ciara have shown us ways to wear  the trend casually.

There are downsides though.Slits can be too high and reveal too much,like in the case of Eva Longoria's Cannes red carpet disaster.The trend seems to be famous with everyone including designers like Versace,Houghton and Geroges H to name a few.

Jennifer Lopez and Solange Knowles 

Which ever way you wear this trend,you bet it'll get you noticed.

I wouldn't say it ever went away.It is one print that has somehow stood the test of fashion time.This Spring/Summer,camouflage is trending in high street and high fashion.The camouflage look was huge on the runway with designers like Valentino and Dries Von Noten.The print itself has a very masculine look to it,so try to balance it out with some feminity,accessorize or mix with a nude or rusty colour.Here are a few pics of how to where your Camou for both men and women:

My Favourites at CANNES.

Yes, i know, i'm a week late but try joggling Motherhood,Work and Wife duties all at once,then you'll understand the reasons for my late updates;)

Anyway,Cannes is a city in the French Riviera and it is host of the Cannes Film Festival.The highlight of the festival is of course the Red Carpet and the movies,so this event draws in the who is who of the movie industry and non-actors alike.I love to showcase and celebrate the efforts of these stars because it does take a lot of time and effort to end up looking as glamourous as they do on these red carpets.So,today i'll be celebrating five women that i think really made a good effort and did it for me.

Sharon Stone in a beaded blue Roberto Cavalli gown.

Cindy Crawford also in Roberto Cavalli.

Solange Knowles in Stephane Rolland Couture.

Rosario Dawson in Marchesa 'Cleopatra'.

Aishwarya Rai in ELie Saab Couture.
There,you have it.Five beautiful ladies that did it for me,in Cannes.Who were your favourites?

Even Celebs Recycle/Rerock their Outfits.

So,we women love our clothes,accessories and jewelries,so much so that we could have a favourite dress,bag,shoe,necklace,earring e.t.c We also love to show off to other ladies too so we would love to appear like we wear an outfit only once,'speaking for myself now';),but no matter how many outfits and shoes and bags we have,we always find ourselves recycling some of them from time to time.Even Celebs recycle.

This post is dedicated to women who love to recycle.It is ok to still re-wear,that hat or dress or even shoe.So you don't always have to run to a boutique to get something new for every occasion:)Here are some pics of some celebs who love to recycle:

Kate Moss loves her  winter warmer,fur coat.

...and so does Sienna Miller

I had up to five pics of the Duchess recycling various outfits but i decided to go with this one.

Kiera Knightley who recently got married,recycled a dress she wore in 2008 ,as her wedding gown.

Lovely Eve Mendes is seen here recycling her bag and jeans.

There you have it ladies.What outfit or accessory do you recycle?

SHE IS BACK!!!!!!!

A few years ago Judith Opara Mazagwu alias AfroCandy realeased a provocative music video that made most Nigerians cringe with shame.It was believed that she had started music as a gospel singer but branched out to circular music.Now,she is out with a soft porn home video.I  am Nigerian and i know how judgemental my people can be,no offence to Nigerians but we still come from a very closed society,so of course the likes of AfroCandy cause an uproar with their wild and almost nude pics and videos.
      I have nothing against Judith but for a woman her age with kids ,who is bent on making a name for herself,i think she is going on about it in the wrongest of ways.For most celebrities or wannabe celebrities they say there is no such thing as bad publicity for me,i think there is ,especially when your celebrity status is African based/centered,that's just me,what do i know and besides i don't want to judge or point fingers at anyone.I only hope,she realises that kids have access to the internet these days and she should think how her children will feel,if they see all she has been up to on the net.

Go here to see pics and the movie she has released:

The Battle of the Queens. Whose maternity style do you prefer?

One is literally a queen in making.She is the wife of Prince William,the duke of Cambridge and is the duchess of Cambridge,Miss Kate Middleton or should i say Mrs Kate William:) The other is the queen of reality television,one of the most photographed women in the world,Kim Kardashian alias Kim K, herself. Both women are pregnant at the same time and the media has been going gaga with updates of their entire pregnancies.
I am more interested in their maternity style.In,my opinion,The duchess of Cambridge has a more subtle sense of style while Kim is more provocative when it comes to her choices in fashion.They are both young,beautiful and very elegant and have both influenced young girls and women in different ways but which of them  would you take lessons from on how to look when pregnant?
To help you deceide,i have selected some pics of them both at different stages of their pregnancies.Enjoy!

So what do you think people?Who is the true Queen of Maternity Style?
