FASHION: CHRISTINA MILIAN’S ‘JUST CAVALLI’ CHEETAH DRESS

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-08-2011

christina-milian-carter-iv-dress-03

Ladies, there’s a reason leopard/cheetah print is always in style. When done correctly, it never fails to add a bit of instant fun to any outfit. If you wear it like Christina Milian at Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter IV” Album release party, you want more than a little fun though. You want a lot of it, and there isn’t a thing wrong with that.

Christina’s Just Cavalli cheetah print bustier dress features a figure hugging silhouette, and mesh panels beneath the bustline. It could all be too much, but the dress’ knee length hemline keeps the look on the right side of tasteful versus tacky.

Christina finishes off her outfit with red accents — shoes, jewelry, and makeup — creating a look that’s as fun as it is stylish.

If you’re in an animal print mood, get her dress from Nordstrom for $525.

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-08-2011

First Lady Michelle Obama covers the October 2011 issue of ESSENCE Magazine in a gorgeous pink floral dress.  And she talks about her role in the White House and how she hopes to inspire other women. Get the deets inside….

 

In the latest fall issue of ESSENCE Magazine, First Lady Michelle Obama talks about her journey from Chicago to the White House saying,

“My story to young people around this country and around the world is, Don’t look at me as the First Lady first; look at me as Michelle Obama, a girl who grew up on the South Side of Chicago. Because I was there, and this is attainable. There is no magic to this. It is hard work….”

In the article, “The Leading Lady,” she also talks about using her life and journey as an inspirational tool for young women, showing them that anything is possible if you work hard.  And Mrs. Obama also lands on the mag’s annual ‘2011 Power List,’ along with Oprah Winfrey, Valerie Jarrett and Shonda Rhimes.  

When asked about Mrs. Obama, ESSENCE Editor-in-Chief Constance C.R. White said,

"Michelle Obama is the quintessential ESSENCE woman; impressively defining herself on her own terms. Opening up to ESSENCE about living her most authentic life – by following her passions and unapologetically investing in herself and her family — Michelle Obama is embracing her purpose and channeling her power. She is undoubtedly poised to become one of the country’s most popular and productive First Ladies."

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-08-2011

It’s never too early to teach the babies about the finer things in life.  Christina Milian was spotted taking her 1-and-a-half-year-old baby girl Violet shopping at Fred Segal yesterday in Beverly Hills.  They had some mommy & me time bonding over shoes.  Gotta love that.

 

Pics of the cuteness inside….

I see Violet’s daddy Dream in her more and more every time.  The bundle of cuteness rocked her frilly skirt and tank and Jordans for the shopping trip.

While mommy Christina kept it sexy and casual in her short shorts and white midriff baring top.

 

Violet tried on some cheetah shoes while mom tried on sky high purple heels.

Fun times!  By the way, Violet’s daddy The Dream’s free mixtape is out today on the net.

T.I.’s FREE! Headed To Community Facility….

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-08-2011

He’s a free man!  T.I.Clifford Harris–was released from an Arkansas prison this morning at 7:29AM.  All after a 1 year sentence stemming from violating probation due to his arrest last year for narcotics.

 

He’s out a month early so we assume he’s been on his best behavior.  Deets inside….

 

Tiny is somewhere changing up her hair color for this special day.  T.I. is currently en route to a community facility–the usual place released inmates go to for  certain amount of time right after their release.  T.I. has served 11 months after his September 2010 arrest in L.A. for getting caught with cocaine and other substances.  He, therefore, violated his probation he was on thanks to his September 2009 felony conviction for illegal weapons.

Word was out that T.I. would be released yesterday, but his lawyer tried to shoot down the claims stating they do not know for sure–early release is a last minute decision.  Looks like it worked out though.

He wasted no time tweeting his excitement saying:

Feels great to be back where I belong…Back in the arms of those who need me the most.

The storm is over da sun back out. IT’S OUR TIME TO SHINE SHAWTY!!!!! Welcome to the beginning of our Happy Ending!!!!

Tiny & Toya tweeted yesterday: @TinyMajorMama: Ya No! Thx T RT @ToyaWright: So happy for my big sis @TinyMajorMama and the Fam…my big brother @Tip we be FREE Tomorrow!☺

Let’s hope he stays out the slammer this time.  Take some notes from Mike Vick.  Lay low, mind your business, and let your talents speak for themselves….
