NIGHT OF THE FASHION PEOPLE

“Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future.”— Coco Chanel

As I promised,I’m posting about the fashion event I attended last Saturday called ‘THE ELEGANCE AFFAIR II”.It was an event for designers,bloggers,models ,fashion lovers and people just looking to have a good time.One of the designers there was Shenu Hooda whose designs I recently came across and loved.I especially love her designs of the last Swahili Fashion Week.Other designers in the house were Muhammad Bana, Sharuz Fashion House, M & O Fashion House Insomnia and Keba Authentic Clothing.I was accompanied by my better half who is always there for me…A shout out to James and all the supportive guys out there! 😀 Fashion means a great deal to me and he’s been there every step of the way . 🙂 I was interviewed as a blogger.I enjoyed myself that night.Here is how it went:

I leave you with a quote from a great woman,

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” ~Coco Chanel

BATTLE OF THE BOY BANDS…FASHION EDITION.

And today’s picks are? …MINDLESS BEHAVIOUR,ONE DIRECTION AND THE WANTED.So who do you reckon has the best style?

MINDLESS BAHAVIOUR.

It’s Made up of  Prodigy, Ray Ray, Princeton and Roc Royal and these guys even though just 15 and 16,dress better than some of  their older counterparts in the business! I like the way their style is so ‘in your face’ . They always look like they’re going to start dancing to ‘my girl’ any minute 😀 Kinda like this :

 mindless behvaiour

Their style I love because it’s really edgy and oh so stylish. Just how you’d want your teenage brother,son or boyfriend to be dressing! 😀 Where are all the screaming female fans?!

This is how I think an M.B girl would dress to one of their concerts:

 ONE DIRECTION.

You may have heard ‘live while we’re young’ ‘kiss you’  ‘one way or another’ or ‘what makes you beautiful’ from this bri’ish boy band .It’s made up of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles(Taylor Swift’s ex), and Louis Tomlinson, their ages ranging from 18 to 20. I used to hate on these guys because I used to thought they were a bit cheesy but I’m beginning to change my mind :O They have some good music.One thing I love though is their style.It’s classy but fun! If you’re in high school or uni,take notes 😉

 I think this is how a ‘one direction’ girl can dress to go see them 🙂

Tom Parker,Max George,Siva  Kaneswaran,Jay McGuiness and Nathan Skyes make up ‘the wanted’.They range from 19 to 23.Now these are guys whose music I love. From ‘glad you came’ to ‘I found you’.My favorite song of theirs is ‘chasing the sun’ Their style is definitely more mature,more clean cut…more serious.Again,if you’re in uni or you work,take notes!

One word…DAPPER.Shout out to all the fashion-he-stas out there.

REPEAT AFTER ME…21 ! 21! 21!

So,February 25th is my official birthday but I celebrated it on Saturday February 23rd with a few of my close friends.It was at Fogo Gaucho,a Brazilian Steakhouse in Westlands,Nairobi.I ate so much meat I don’t think I’m eating meat for the rest of this week…NO, SERIOUSLY.Of course, being the fashionista I am,I went aall out.I pulled all the stops to make sure I looked fabulous and glamorous 🙂 A girl only turns 21 once! I know it was the Oscars that weekend too,but screw that…for now. 😀 This is my red carpet look.

So this is how it all started:

I thoroughly enjoyed myself that night.But this,21, is not the end of everything ,I’ve barely scratched the surface! I know I have a bright future ahead of me and I can only imagine what it holds.

GLAMOUR AT THE GLOBES.

So the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 13, 2013 in Beverly Hills, California. Much has been said about the awards won and the actors and actresses who won them.I’m here to talk about the fashion side of it…like so many others have done,but from my point of view! Who doesn’t dream of the Hollywood life? I mean,the kind of lives those people live? I would swap mine for that any day.Except I would keep the people in my life thank you.

I’ll start with guys fashion.Well,with guys on the red carpet,really all you need to do is put on a good suit and you’re good to go after 15 minutes.Ladies take even a whole day on hair,make up and other beauty stuff that sometimes will even go unnoticed! 😀 But we still do it because it’s so much fun getting ready.

I usually love a more fitting dress and there was a lot of that at the Golden Globes,especially the mermaid  dresses.There were also a few ball gowns.

BODACIOUS IN BLACK.

1.Sofia vergara In a Michael Cinco dress.

If you’ve watched ‘The Modern Family’ you’ve seen her.She is aall that and a bag of chips and is not afraid to show it:

Image

2.Salma Hayek.

Mexican and thoroughly blessed showed off her curves in this Gucci dress:Mui caliente! Observe how the guy behind her is staring with his mouth open 😀

Image

3.Kate Hudson is a well-renowned actress.She wore this body-hugging Alexander McQueen Dress to the Globes! Elegant is an understatement…

Image

PRETTY IN PASTELS

1.Jennifer Lopez.

She sure aint Jenny from the block no more.I love this dress on her.

Image

2.Kerry Washington of ‘Django Unchained’.She looked so adorable in this dress.Very chic.

Image

3.Kaley kuoco.

Always portrayed as a dumb blonde eg in ‘8 simple rules’ and ‘the Big Bang Theory’ but does she look dumb here to you?

Image

WINTERY WHITES

1.Anne Hathaway.

Also looking so adorable in this white gown…but you wait till she assaults you in a cat suit.

Image

2.Downton abbey’s michelle dockery.

That white and gold is just sooo elegant.Very Grecian.Good choice!

Image

3.Julianne Hough in Monica Lhuillier.

More like princess Julianne.This is so gorgeous.Minimum jewellery so that the dress can shine.Plus have you seen her hair?

Image

PINKS AND REDS.

1.Jessica Alba In Oscar De La Renta.

I just love this dress.Everything about it is elegant.The shape,the fit.Plus the colour is gorgeous!Her hair and make up also really brings the whole look together.

Image

2.Jennifer Lawrence.

You might have seen her in ‘The Hunger Games’.She Also went for the ball gown and pulled it off quite pleasantly.

Image

BEAUTIFUL IN BURGUNDY

1.Taylor Swift.I love burgundy because it’s an edgy colour and I think it looked lovely on her.

Image

2.Naomi Watts.

This dress though simple,it fit quite nicely and at least she did something that not many did on the red carpet…sleeves! I think she looks amazing.

Image

THE VA VA VOOM GIRLS.

And then there’s the thigh high slits.They should warn viewers of the Globes, ‘DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME’ . It also looks like the slit is there to allow for flying kicks.Stay away!  Well,If you’ve got it,flaunt it.That’s exactly what these daring women did:

1.Halle berry in versace:

I also love the print on this dress.

Image

2.Eva longoria in Emilio pucci.

This black chiffon and lace pleated dress was just something else.whaat?

Image

3.Heidi klum.

This white Grecian Alexandre Vauthier dress must have had Seal reconsidering… 😀

Image

And then there’s them…NO WAY… Uh uh.These ladies’ fashion has probably seen better days.

1.Sienna Miller.

Fire your stylist! You look like you were a bridesmaid in one of those weddings where bridesmaids are deliberately made to look bad so that the bride can shine.

Image

2.Rebecca Miller.Umm,ok,maybe she was on her way  home and  just decided to pop into the awards…or was she?? well,what she’s wearing is not entirely bad.The boots are so misplace though.It’s just not appropriate for ANY award show.

Image

And Adele who always wears black on the red carpet.She’s …well…just there… :-@ 

Image

Probably the best dressed for me was,,,,JESSICA ALBA!

Who was yours?
