There is a noticeable difference between today’s R&B and the music of the past. Once upon a time, great vocalists like Michael, Gerald, Luther and Keith had passion in their music. They had romance.

Swizz Beatz & Kanye West in Versace Bomber Jacket Who Wore the look better?

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Swizz Beatz & Kanye West in Versace Bomber Jacket Who Wore the look better?

This weekeend Versace for H&M launched and the clothing was gone in 30 seconds. My thoughts on the collection that Versace and H&M did an great job marketing and promoting it. The fabric was very off to me but to each is own. If you purchased it I would wait until the hype is down and then bust out with your piece from the collection. Swizz Beatz was spotted over the weekend hosting the Reebok’s “Reethym of Lite” party at the VIP Room nightclub in Paris, France sporting a couple pieces from the Versace for H&M collection.. Kanye wore the same bomber jacket. who wore it better?

Dashing in the snow Party Season!

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Dashing in the snow Party Season!

Every girl heart desires the finer things in this posh life. She deserves all the things from the smallest to the largest of bling! She also has the power, with a simple stroke of Ruby Woo (matte-red MAC lipstick), to become the most gorgeous makeup-maven known to man. Dressed in black fur, the finest of linen, five-inch Lanvins and a skull-encrusted McQueen clutch in tow; a self-made chic rockstar, right? Ofcourse, but where’s her theme music? In this case, her theme music will be all that makes her glitter (high and low-end pieces) this party-season.

Here at, we suggest you look your absolute best! WE GIVE—dashing hair tricks, fab makeup tips and show-stopping outfit ideas; we’re inspired to bedazzle you with ways to look “DASHING IN THE SNOW!

Bling wisely.

When wearing blingy accessories do remember the #1 key is to piece carefully. Go for a bold art-deco necklace and pair with a match in earrings. Vintage-inspired sets always wows the room! Also, if you would like to go heavy on the hands try jewel-encrusted rings with gold embellishing to sparkle and get noticed with simplest of hand gestures. When choosing a bracelet for added bling be sure to arrange a cuff on the arm, whereas, it’s more attractive than loose bracelets…they tend to make more noise than define you look!!! Lastly, you can’t go wrong with a simple blinged clutch. It’s one piece that you can go all out with—any shape, color but keep at a hand-held or underarm size. Viola! Tis’ the season to BLING!!


Red lips are a yes for any party season (or any season for that matter)!!! They speak volumes. Color is key for the conversation opener. Stay chic in any shiny or matte red tones. Safely, a wine-red stained lip is classic and a must do! Thank me later! EYES: Three words…retro- winged eyes!! Classy. Chic. Charismatic. Retro eyes are very clean. This look gets the boy! All it takes is eyeliner (gel or liquid) on the lower lid to execute this look. Work to keep the line sharp; the straighter the sexier. To save the best for last topping off this attraction, strike for blushed glowing cheeks. Go for it! Meeeeeooooow!


As we all have concluded, at parties, you either get noticed from this waist up or quickly viewed from the full body aspect of things. Noticed from these viewpoints you want to stand visually corrected by any means necessary. FULL BODY: To strike hot go for a LBD (little black dress). LBD’s at parties should be worn naughty—short and sleek. Who ever has fun dancing in a full length dress all night? You want to work the roomwith all your avid-sheek grace and glory, not have a work-out from keeping the “full length” in place; hoping no to trip over it! OK, ok I feel proud to say that sequin dresses are absolutely wearable this time of the year. Body bling has never been a crime. Sequin brings “all of the lights” for any party; day or night. Also to stay lavishly warm while blinging out, be sure to wrap in a fur (faux or real) throw or scarf. The items (shown) together pairs together very nice. WAIST UP: Opt for throwing out your usual black blazer for a more strong one. Ruffled, sequined, fur or even a graphic blazer will make you the focal point of any event. Ruffled because it brings out the delicate diva. Sequined brings the daring party girl out. Fur (in any color)sets the high standards just to get noticed—all worn is a win, win!! Fashion-forwardness at it’s best.

Make your move this holiday season…be noticed while dashing in the snow!

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Celebs Attend the 16th Annual GQ “Men Of The Year” Party

Last night was GQ Men of the year Party. Where was my invite? Jay-Z is man of the year and his deserves it. Many celbrities attended the event  Singer/actor Justin Timberlake and TV Host Jimmy Fallon. I wonder where was fashionable Beyonce for the night.  One thing that is great about GQ magazine are they spotlight fashionable men all over the world as well because sometimes in fashion all you see and hear about is women. Make sure you grab a copy of this issue it is a collectors issue in my eyes

Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin MAC VivaGlam

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin MAC VivaGlam



Nicki Minaj partnered with MAC Cosmetics for the limited release of ‘Pink Friday’ lipstick, she has signed on to be the spokeperson for MAC  VivaGlam 2012 Campaign. This is an very great look for her. I bet everything will be sold out in seconds. The new lipsticks, titled VivaGlam Nicki and VivaGlam Ricky, will go on sale in February with proceeds going towards the fight against HIV/AIDS.  Nicki seems like a good fit considering Pink Friday sold out but Ricky Martin being the face of a lipstick is so spicyyy. When seeing Ricky Martin in the AD’s I was shocked but it dawned on me  Livin’ La Vida Loca was a huge single. 

Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2012 collection has been stolen in transit to Paris!

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2012 collection has been stolen in transit to Paris!

Devastating. Immortal. Surreal. There is sad news today in fashion—samples of the Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2012 collection has been stolen in transit to Paris.

Photographers, fashion editors (including me), fashion bloggers and style gurus have been wanting to get their hands on the samples of the demanded collection. EVERYONE has been frantic over who would be getting the best shots of the collection, but due to the mishap of theft the show, as of yet, will not be happening.

To all in fashion the email stated:

“Dear all, : the email drastically started to inform.” “The Marc Jacobs PR team is sorry to inform you that our press day (today, Paris time) in the Marc Jacobs’ store, is cancelled due to the theft of the entire collection, in transfer to Paris. Sad, but TRUE! The collection consisted of 46 looks.

Hence the fact, that the collection samples haven’t even been through distribution—it will be very hard to black market any of the pieces of the of the Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2012. This event has left the staff of Marc Jacobs rendered speechless. Message to the theft: beware of angry fashion editors everywhere!!

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on TOKYO FASHION WEEK SPRING 2012 covers all over the world when it comes to fashion. Tokyo Fashion week just kicked off with designers SomartaAraisaraPhenomenonMotonari Ono and Keita Maruyama. These designers have an creative edge that other fashion weeks just dont have. I love to see designers think outside of the box when it comes to a new collection because it should represent something new and fresh for the next season unlike some fashion shows. When looking at these garments you could clearly see the vision that each designer had with there rich Japanese heritage and strong classic sense. There inspirations shows a very beautiful future in fashion.
