Best In Black Celebrity News & Gossip; Urban Since 2007

Barack Obama covers “Men’s Vogue”

Posted by on Sep 19, 2008 in CC's Fashion Post, Celebrity Fashion | 13 comments

Barack Obama has the October 2008 cover gig for “Men’s Vogue” magazine. Snapped by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, Barack talked about his life since that keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention to his present lifestyle. (For those who still haven’t register to vote, do visit The Proud Black Voter Blog.)

Speaking of Barack, Solange Knowles was seen in this “Obey Obama Vintage tee” from Urban Outfitters at the Rock The Rock event in Philadelphia. The tee shirt would cost you $38…and it’s a whole lot less than the $60 House of Dereon “Change” tee.

Old School Friday: Road Trip Songs

Posted by on Sep 19, 2008 in Videos | 9 comments

I can tell you now, that I cannot go on a road trip with music, and unfortunately I can’t play the songs that have been apart of my past road trips for fear of the lyrical content. So that made this theme challenging for me. Anyway, I had to pick a song that I know all the words to, and that I can sing along. So here is my choice, Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh, Lodi…Dodi…Ahhh….

People’s Best Dressed List 2008

Posted by on Sep 18, 2008 in CC's Fashion Post, Celebrity Fashion | 7 comments

Rihanna, Michelle Obama, Heidi Klum, and Fergie are among People magazine’s Best Dressed Stars of 2008. Out of the picks, I particularly enjoy Rihanna and Michelle’s style choices that they made…so far.

The worst looks of the year went to Solange, Lucy Liu, Amy Winehouse, Lil’ Mama, Mariah Carey, Paula Abdul, and Aubrey O’ Day. All worst-dressed looks could have been saved if it wasn’t so over the top, don’t you think?

As for me I think the best overall style choice of the year is Vogue Italia.

So do you disagree or agree with the celebrity publication’s best & worst picks?

Moving right along…

Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinket Smith made it a family affair at the recent premiere of “Lakeview Terrace.” The married couple supported Jada’s brother Caleb who has a role in the film. Gray suits, as Jessica’s blog Genuine-Imitation admitted, is a great style trend for the men. Yay or nay on Jada’s dress choice?

Ever love a bag so much you had to have it in every color? Well Solange Knowles had a same feeling when she was spotted with this Emporio Armani “Audrey” bowling bag. Solange, the brand’s ambassador, has this bag in red and black.
