Rihanna - Man Down

To be honest, i love the long, red, Rapunzel looking weave Riri's got. Feroshh.


To continue my obsession with really good statement shoes, I've been jocking Guerre's new photo blog and I can't help but want all the shoes he shoots! UGH!!!! I WANT! I definitely don't wear sneakers much, but I'm dying over those Louis Vuitton x Yeezy collab and the Margiela's above.

Darren Criss for GQ

This is perfect inspiration for my summer suits in New York and Santa Barbara. I just bought a light grey suit and I'm still looking for a great khaki suit although I wouldn't mind a plaid GANT blazer with some khaki trousers like Darren has on. Gahhhhh, he's so cute! I hope we get to see more of Darren Criss on the next season of Glee!

Coachella 2012

In an attempt to help out those who were unable to make it last year due whatever reasons, Coachella has decided to do weekends of the art and music festival with the same art, line up and what not. Tickets start to go on sale THIS FRIDAY, and I don't even know, which line up will be the same because I'm not trying to pay 300+ for the same line up! Here's what coachella.com posted on their website:

We're excited to announce Coachella 2012 will be held over TWO WEEKENDS.

In an effort to try and accommodate everyone who wants to experience the festival, COACHELLA 2012 will be two separate events, held over two consecutive weekends. We will attempt to produce two identical festival weekends. That means same lineup, same art, same place, different people.

We know many of you were unable to attend this year's festival because passes sold out much sooner than anticipated. We were truly surprised by the overwhelming response and remain honored by your passion and enthusiasm. We also know some of you purchased through non legitimate sources and were inconvenienced, gouged or totally scammed. We hope that these changes will give everyone the opportunity to purchase directly from Coachella.com.

Passes go on sale beginning this Friday, June 3rd, 2011, at 10am PST until the following Friday June 10th, 2011, at 10pm PST. This advance sale will be the only opportunity to take advantage of the Coachella Payment Plan. Passes will be available through a payment plan of 10% down and 8 equal monthly payments OR by payment in full. The price of three-day passes remains at $269 plus fees for the sixth consecutive year.

Coachella Weekend 1 - April 13-15, 2012 | Coachella Weekend 2 - April 20-22, 2012

Dolce & Gabbana: The History of Leopard

Who knew that Leopard was such a prominent part of the Italian house's history and collections through out the years? Incredible. Fall 2012 and 2007 were my favorite collections featuring the print. What were yours?

Oprah Winfrey: Goodbye

An incredible last goodbye from one of the most influential women of today. Until next time, indeed...

Jamming To...


Jennifer Lopez: Love? - Surprisingly this album has a lot of good songs and it's about time. I'm in love with I'm Into You (ft. Lil Wayne), What Is Love, On The Floor and Hypnotico. They're all practically good club bangers. What do you think?

Lady Gaga: Born This Way - The music on this album is incredibly different from all the other music Gaga has done in the past. I can't stop listening to Government Hooker, Electric Chapel, Bad Kids, Schiebe, and You & I. At first listen, you really don't know what the hell she's talking about or why the music sounds the way it does, but eventually it grows on you.. well as least it did to me. It's worth listening to, her lyrics are obviously not objective, so it's worth trying to figure to what she's trying to say.

Ellie Goulding: Lights - After Coachella and seeing her on my campus, her album has been on repeat, non-stop. The Writer has definitely been my jam lately..

Hurts: Happiness - Seeing them perform at Coachella was awesome. So dedicated I had to download their album as soon as I got back home. I love Wonderful Life, Stay and Blood, Tears & Gold.

The Lonely Island: Turtleneck & Checks - Ummm it's practically the most hilarious album I have. The Creep ft. Nicki Minaj is hands down my favorite song on the album, but I could be biased because I love the Minajesty.

The Boxer Rebellion: Union - First heard them as I was watching Going the Distance with Justin Long and Drew Barrymore and I LOVED them. They're kind of like a more alternative/indie version of Coldplay. So if you like Chris Martin as much as I do, I suggest listening to their old album, Union.

Anja Rubik and Sasha Knezevic for Vogue Germany

You don't think I wouldn't have blogged about this would you? Again, my favorite supermodel couple take the pages of another fashion publication, this time it's Vogue Germany and they look incredibly smoking. They're literally a match made in heaven. GORGEOUS!! I love how the happy couple practically does editorial shoots together, you don't really see this often.

Lady Gaga for Madame Magazine

Even though Lady Gaga isn't a supermodel and at time she may look heinous in the face, the girl seems like she can really work a good pose. Simple, straight forward, and fierce at the same time. I love the photo below with her back towards the camera, flawless. The pop superstar really knows her angles..work!

Isabeli Fontana for Vogue Paris

I'm absolutely loving the new June/July issue of Vogue Paris. Emanuelle Alt is definitely doing her job right. How gorgeous is Isabeli?! It totes reminds me of Linda Evangelista circa 1990's. FABOOSH! I've also been keeping me eye on Clement Chabernaud, the male model who graces the editorial along side Fontana. A smoking French model I might add. yumm..

Terron Wood for GQ Germany

It's been awhile since I've seen an editorial that has inspired my casual/street outfits. I like the mix of classic/formal pieces with unexpected sports wear and casual clothes. Plus, I just bought yellow shorts and I'm dying to wear them! To be honest, I've also been seeing a lot of stripes and I'm quite sick of it. ehh it's probably just a phase.. it's spring time...

Beyonce: Billboard Music Awards 2011

She is Sasha Fierce, hands down one of her BEST performances, ever. At only 30, she's already getting recognized? INCREDIBLE. I hope to become a triple threat just like her someday... I also want a banging bod like hers too.. sigh.

Kerry Degman

Just because I haven't seen much of him lately, I thought I would refresh myself and my readers who love supermodel Kerry Degman, just as much as I do. Buzz cut, athletic, good smile, amazing eyes, great body...what's not to love? He's gone beyond an obsession, I am just plain addicted to him.

The Cannes amfAR Gala: Best Dressed

I love a good red carpet and I think Anja looks smashing in her Emilio Pucci, whiled Dev Patel was looking dapper in his khaki suit.
Ummm J. Jackson in Haider Ackermann?? GORGEOUS.
Uma looked flawlessly chic in her sandals and grey CHANEL dress.
Peter Dundas? Break me a piece of that, stat. Emilio Pucci + Peter is one fashion orgasm I'd love to experience.
At the age of 41 and with two kids, Gwen Stefani deserves an award for looking this incredible in her custom LAMB mermaid dress. I had to include Rosario, I just love her too too much.
Did I miss the memo? Is Vladmir and Giovanna going out? How risque is her dress? Nonetheless, she can definitely pull it off.

Olivia Palermo

The ex reality star, model, and socialite is quite the master at mixing her highs and lows. As the face for affordable retailers like Mango, Olivia really does love mixing her G. Valli/A. Wang/Proenza Schouler/and other high end designers with pieces from Top Shop, Zara, and Mango. Here are a few photos in which she does that exactly and effortlessly I might add.
Olivia in a Zara scarf and bag with J Brand Jeans and TF Sunnies.
Olivia with her beau (and model), Johannes Huebl wearing head to toe Mango.

Jen Brill for The Coveteur


This Chanel Ambassador is definitely the most gangsta of them all. The NY agent and BA of CHANEL, is a great collection from the French House. The first time I ever learned about Jen was from reading the CHANEL news on their website and from seeing her photos plastered everywhere on Terry's blog. From every season of CHANEL, i've seen street shots of her with the latest collection and I'm oh so envious, i'm sure like all CHANEL girls...and guys. Those light bulb t-strap velvet shoes are most coveted along with the gun heeled shoe. And according to her, who can never have enough CHANEL shorts?! Can you expect anything less from one of Uncle Karl's go to CHANEL gals? Jelly.
