In honour of the latest ambassadors to join the Mac VIVA Glam squad Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin where given a pretty cool party this past week. Nicki Minaj in true branding business style had to make an exhibition of herself and she done so in this stripy couture piece.

Compared to recent pictures this was actually rather toned down appearance at the penultimate party at New York Fashion Week. The Viva Glam squad assists the charity by raising funds to donate 100% of profits to the Mac Aids fund which is pretty great news for everyone all around- Mac for brand recognition and awareness and Nicky, whom claimed she had an uncle affected by aids.

Anyhoo, she arrived in a stripy dress jacket combo from the Nanette Lepore Spring 2012 collection sticking to her branding Minaj colours of pink. The dress has an alternating blue and navy colour block stripe-which is certainly eye catching. The collection itself is very bright and over the top, I am not sure if pieces from this season can be worn into the local Sainsbury’s supermarket or even the office without getting a lot of looks from concerning strangers but I guess it is perfect for Nicki.

She mixes the jacket with the dress for a bright combo as well as a Cute Chanel blue bag and some Giuseppe Zanotti colour block blue sandals ($1100)

Her new blonde hair does not excite me- I guess its better than pink but blah for blonde!

So last night was the announcement of the 2012 Grammy awards in sunny Los Angeles and all the biggest music artists were out in full glory to present the nominations for the show that will be in February. One of the hottest artists Nicki Minaj came to the stage in a bright blue strapless dress which fitted her curvy body like a glove and as usual she had her bright but complimenting pink curly statemented hair.

Nicki Minaj was joined on stage by fellow pink lover Katy Perry in a very glamourous pink dress that also matched her pink tint hair.

Her gown by D&G had a soft lace overlay, strapless and figure huggingly tight.

Both looked fabulous side by side and complimented each others look really well- it was as if they had conversed before hand about their choice of outfits.

One of my favourite things on Nicki are her shoes!- oh yes- WE ARE back to shoes.

nicki minaj verace shoes grammy

Her Versace triple stacked platform shoes are a real show stopper, its not the first time we have seen Barbie in the shoes- she favours them quite a lot but on this particular night she chose a blue and white pair which go perfectly with her dress.

I have to say Nicki is known for going very loud and wild with her choice of outfits but this particular ensemble- despite the pink hair, is very well put together- there is nothing you can really knock, the dress, a lovely shade of bright blue, killer heels and awesome hair she worked it well today.

nicki minaj versace shoes

The dress has panels to the front and side- it works in a very similar way to the dress Kate Winslet in Stella Mccartney wore on two occasions, giving the subtle illusion of a slimmer waist, thighs and hips, Nicky due to her curves did not need the addition of a colour contrast otherwise it would be TOO CURVY! So it worked perfectly well for her. The rapper should also be happy as she was nominated for awards at the Grammys as well… watch this space in February to see if she wins!

Good job…

So last night was the American Music Awards 2011 and some of the largest singers were out to collect their awards.

Of course we have to post our favourite of which there were many- but one which has caused me most excitement is one of my favourite female rappers- Nicki Minaj.

The young money artist has had an amazing year and amazing success at the show- winning several awards.

She performed her latest track and her current highest selling single SuperBass in a metallic robot outfit which was rather impressive- however unlike usual Nicki she was singing?- I have to be honest and say- I was not keen on this- she came out a rapper and I think she should continue down this path but anyway- we are here to talk clothes not poor career changes!

So Nicki accepted awards in a very dramatic Oscar De La Renta dress– only yesterday I was checking out some of the designers pieces and he is noted as one of the most expensive designers in the world!

nicki minaj american movie awards

Nicki’s dress is from the 2012 spring collection and one of the first celebrities to get her hands on the collection- which makes sense as she sat first row at his show back in September so she must have picked it as it walked by her on the model!

The dress was a bold green silk taffeta with a black battenburg lace and broderie anglaise bodice-  It also had a matching neck band.

She adopted her favourite colour for hair this particular evening- which complimented the gown and her lips- which is probably her limited edition Mac pink Friday lipstick.

She is also the latest spokesperson alongside Ricky Martin for MAC Cosmetics- and a pretty cool photograph came out of the pair- which is rather striking but the pair seems rather bazaar couple put together.

The dress is very similar to what we have been talking about as the upcoming trends or asymmetrical hem lines- which this is a less dramatic version but still follows suit.

We love it-

Nicki Loves it-

Under the dress she opted for some Alexander McQueen amour wedge sandals Rrp £2,495.00

The very confidant and innocent yet mouthy girls…

Nicki is one of the hottest rappers at the moment she is literally on everything with or without the singer!

Will I am, Sean Kingston, Jay Sean, Willow Smith plus her mix tapes covers most artists from Beyonce, Drake and Lil Wayne and the list goes on…Without a doubt you would have heard or seen this girl.

She has been out promoting her new album with her ever dramatic looks never failing to amaze.

She is also the new spokesperson for her Mac Pink lipstick  made and designed especially for her.

The Lipstick is a special edition and is only out for a few weeks but it has been a success and the site says it is already out of stock.

Her latest craze is this coloured hair streaks.

She is always into wearing her different colour wigs but this is a new take on that, she has chosen to combine them horizontally!

Nicki Minaj Hair

We personally love the fire in this girl she has made a name for herself and is making some serious money doing so.

She has a huge world wide following and has really expolded over the past year so she can do no wrong!

If you want to achive such a look as Nicki Minaj’s explosive colour streaks it can be as simple as…

1. Choose the colours you would want

2. Grab a piece of paper to get a defined line

3. Spray away

4. Using the paper to cover the hair you want to leave out

You can get spray cans from any supermarket, fancy dress shop or online.

StarGazer is a great brand and it washes out easily with Shampoo, plus its really cost effective too.

You could even mix it up with neon colour mix.

We can defiantly say that We want that now!

Dr Martens are no longer labelled the “Bova- Boots” worn by punks and anarchists but a cool chic foot gem worn by loads of celebs and stars in attempt to ditch the heels and be comfortable and cool for a nonchalant appearance cool chic appearance.

We have noticed they are turning up EVERYWHERE… These shoes were made popular back in the 90s and just like all fashion it has come back round- so if you have got yours from back in the day its time to dust them off and put them on!

So here is our little list of Dr Marten fans that have shunned the painful heels in search of this new punk chic cool chick  look.

Jessica Alba– the new mother of two, happily adopts the comfy look in her burgundy red Dr Martens- she pairs them with tight leggings, jeans or shorts to add more femininity to the look then paired with a long shirt and glasses to up the glam level.

Kanye West’s prodigy / ex-girlfriend curvy Amber Rose is also a big fan of the boots- she has a slight androgynous look that she likes to adopt so the boots fit in well to her style

amber rose dr martens

She has quite a unique style we like the fact she does not shy away from colours- particularly the yellow doc Martens are pretty cool with her colourful under jacket and black jeans.

The Queen on top at the moment Nicki Minaj also adopted the boots in her Superbass video in a simple white t-shirt and shorts- her backing dancers also compliment her look with alternating colours of Docs- we have to admit its a cool picture and probably made the song get to top figures in the charts!

Nicki’s fashion is rather odd- we believe the main purpose is to stand out so she can be spoken about for all the wrong reasons or to be labelled “too cool for school”.. her stylist clearly has a plan with each fashion disaster.

pink docs are also favoured by new bandmate member to the sugarbabes

Actress turned director Drew Barrymore is also a fan choosing the black Docs which are our favourites as well as Cher Lloyd in her music video Swagger Jagger and out and about- once again this must be a styling choice as she consistently wears variety of boots to create an “image” of the cool rock urban chic!

CHER LLOYDD doc martens

We particularly love the black docs- the high shine of a brand new pair of classic blacks are versatile and still rugged to create impact when walking and making in entrance-

Pair with a mini skirt and baggy top for a super chic look.

There are a multitude of colours and patterns to choose from if you do want to move away from the traditional and why not customise your own if you buy a pair of black Docs!

Today’s spotlight shoe is the weird and wonderful boots made by D&G- these ones are truly heart stopping and incredibly dramatic and will also keep your legs and feet warm over Christmas..horrah! Never can you find shoes with so many pluses!

 

The Leather and rubber sole is great for comfort and the furry loose string body of the shoe makes it incredibly unique and something similar and more wearable than the shoes worn by Nicki Minaj on the set of her video with Willow Smith.

These beige shoes are a great altenative option for those not as daring but still experiemental.

They have a heel height of 13.00 and can be purchased from the D&G site for £1,145.00 WooHoo

 

A picture of Lindsay Lohan arrived on my desk this morning and in fairness to her it looked pretty good! she had the injected trout pout look going on but in fairness to her she worked it well!

Dressed in a black chic classy outfit she walked the streets of New York with enough stride and confidence of a top American CEO exec.

The reason we particularly chose this story out of the many other options to publish is because it was the shoes that caught our attention- particularly enhanced with the profile angle of the image and it really was a great look.

This is a prime example of never/hardly-ever going wrong in black and simple can be best! two great tips- a minimalistic outfit can really do wonders.

lindsay lohan black oscar walter

Anyhoo- Lindsay wore a black  jumper dress with a simple Gold Chanel Black belt and the statement Walter Steiger Oscar platforms from his latest collection.

I have never really paid attention to the shoes before but simply because of the angle and as she was wearing black it really stood out to me that- yes I really like them! The quirkiness of the shoe is what is so appealing and inspiring.

The oversized designer bag and dark shades really finished the look for us.

Perhaps I am a tad late to jump on this band wagon as it seems as though there are an entire list of celebrities in the shoes.

Nicki Minaj has supported the platforms in several occasions turning up in a variety of loud colours from the pink and baby blue.

Black Eyed Peas female singer Fergie has also adopted a pair of the shoes- from a 2009 collection- her dainty shoes are called “Fire” and as with all fashion if you don’t get it whilst its hot it becomes no longer avaliable so currently it is bit hard to get hold of! but we can still admire the beauty of the shoes. The Fire pair are particularly cool as it looks as though your feet are barley in the shoe! it also looks as if like they are giving Fergie some major calf burn.

voluptuous Jessica Simpson has also seen to be supporting the curved shoes -looking rather dashing in a metallic dress.

The Fire pair a real amazing piece of work- in fact genius artwork- simple but yet so complicated when it is worn- How can the entire body fit and balance into such a complicated piece of footwear and continue to walk and move around whilst doing so! These particular pair of shoes are a posing for pictures only (P4P) sort!

This is also part of latest fashion lookout- the type of outfit you wear for Posing for Pictures! Typically because it is humanly impossible to do anything else- its the type of outfit/shoe/item you wear to simply BREATHE and possibly smile!

Of course the next celeb to support the shoes- or rather support anything – are the Kardashians opting for the pale blue like Nicki Minaj.

It is rather apparent that these shoes are paid the most justice when the wearer is wearing black!

Average price $950.00

Hip hop singer Nicki, arrived on the red carpet in this outfit we are really not sure about- it really demonstrated her round and ample curves but IT was not the best choice in the world.
