Throwback Thursday Tribute

Throwback Thursday Tribute

Fashion forward…style creator…designer…philanthropist…and icon! Diane von Furstenberg is a name that is still very prominent in today’s fashion industry and will NOT go anywhere. The lovely DVF was a game changer and this tribute is for her!

Diane von Furstenberg | El armario de las famosas

Diane entered the fashion industry in the 1960’s, but she became widely known for creating what every woman has as a staple in her closet even today. This is the introduction to the iconic wrap dress that entered our worlds in 1974.

Although the wrap dress was introduced in 1974, by 1976 this brilliant designer sold over one million of this dress! It was re-launched in 1997 and still to this date continues to be a girls go to fashion item. Then when launching her perfume, Diane gathered ladies in her iconic wrap dress to initiate a flash mob! EPIC!

Diane von Furstenberg continued innovation within the fashion industry as she is also known for her beautiful prints.

In 2011 DVF brought her love for patterns, prints, colors and textures to home. She launched DVF Home and it is equally amazing.

Her fashions are so divine and iconic that she was chosen for partnership with London hotel The Claridge’s for re-design of several rooms and suites. Although this was stated to be the first time DVF did a project like this one on such a large scale, she maintained her classic glamour and style with signature prints and bold colors. Besides, it’s also stated she is a long time guest and friend of this five star hotel! Check out more HERE.

In 2005 she was awarded The Lifetime Achievement Award by Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). She was then named the president in 2006.

2014 will mark the 40th Anniversary of the wrap dress…

Journey of the Dress

Diane has consistently delivered gorgeous prints, bold colors and examples of bold femininity throughout every collection. This is the only designer I know that combines glamour and wear-ability at its best! What I admire the most about this icon is that in her words “I am against anything that objectifies women.” She stands firm on female empowerment and has no issue in voicing her opinion whenever she sees fit.

Diane von Furstenberg is the most powerful woman in the fashion industry and for everything you have done and continue to do… I pay tribute to you.

Thanks for continuously inspiring me!

Winter White Wonderful.

Dear December,

Oh how I love showing off white during this month! This Fab Fashion Friday is highlighting the purity of street style, Winter White!

Below showcases the perfect way to wear white during the winter. Due to the weather you will need a chic coat to protect the purity of the outfit under so why not style it with a camel colored jacket like the one below:

White from head to toe including nails, hair and hat is completely chic.

White adds luxury and illumination during what sometimes can be a cold winter, depending on geographical location. It promotes feelings of new beginnings and provides clarity. Although white is usually considered a summer color, long gone are fashion traditions and this color is worn throughout all seasons.

Adding a pop of color to your Winter Whites creates fashion interest.

This is dedicated to street style queen Angela Simmons!

No matter where and when this lady steps out, she does it in style always. This post is dedicated to her and the many wonderful street styles she’s given us over this past year!

The above look is one of my favorites from Angela Simmons which was a dress she wore to the Tadashi Shoji during fashion week this year. She completed the look with classic pointy toe nude Louboutin‘s and a sleek ponytail.

I love the look below she chose for the Hip Hop Inauguration earlier in the year

This stylish Simmons always makes her mark when visiting fashion week. Below she supports Mara Hoffman in beautiful print romper.

When Angela launched AngelaIAm, she did it in style of course with many breathtaking fashion photos. On her new website you can see her give her opinion about fashion, beauty, fitness, music, things in the community, and her personal diary. There are lots of photo galleries of her doing fashion shoots and more

It seems no matter what activity Angela is doing, she ensures she remains fashionable. Seeing her workout gear inspires me to follow suit!

Get the look below!

Angela also has some amazing bathing suit shots!!! Check out this fab fashionista below in some of my top swimsuit looks from this year!

Thanks Angela, for being a fab fashionista!!

Throwback Thursday Tribute

Throwback Thursday Tribute

Iman!…Model, Actress, Activist, Entrepreneur, Beauty brand name and much much more! We celebrate this living style icon during this Throwback Thursday Tribute.

Iman, the Somalian beauty was discovered by photographer Peter Beard at the University of Nairobi. She was the desired model in the late seventies and eighties and graced the runway with her unique look, flawless skin, gorgeous face and infamous long neck.

  

One of my favorite Cosby episodes is when Iman was a guest star:

Unlikely, Iman was not interested in fashion nor modeling and was actually in college when she was discovered. She was more interested in reading Time and Newsweekly. Iman is far more than beauty. She speaks five languages and is a brilliant business savvy woman. When she left modeling in 1989 she set out to expand herself as a brand and has done that successfully now over 20 years.

Iman used her beauty and fame to enlighten the world around her. She took a documentary film crew back to Somalia and leveraged her celebrity to bring more international assistance and awareness to her homeland.

Iman launched her cosmetics line in 1994 for women of color. Her first year of sales were a total of $12 million and after the decision of partnership with Ivax, the next year she grossed over $30 million!

She married rocker David Bowie back in 1992, celebrated 20 years last year and the couple is still going strong today.

Hats of to you Iman… The style icon!

Throwback Thursday Tribute

Throwback Thursday Tribute

Celebrating one of the most hip & fun yet highly educated mom’s from tv’s highest rated 80’s sitcom The Cosby ShowClair Huxtable🙂

Clair was not only a character for TV, she was who little girls and women aspired to become  and above all a fashion icon nonetheless.

She was so classy with her evening looks.

Clair was full of life, very playful but still held her ground as an assertive attorney you did not want to cross. I would marvel at the way she spoke so eloquently. She knew how to be relate-able without compromising her true self.

In a poll of Opinion Research Survey back in 2006, Clair was voted as “TV’s Favorite Mom”.

Although I didn’t have the luxury of watching this amazing show as a kid, I did watch it repeatedly in the 90’s and still to this day as an adult!! I own the entire 8 seasons. 🙂

One of my favorite Clair go off moments is when Vanessa goes to Baltimore to see the Wretched… See below:

Too many great things to share on the lovely Clair Huxtable. Her fashion sense was classy, age appropriate and with a subtle sexy unlike some of TV’s moms nowadays. We all as women can learn a thing or two from this sophisticated character who can never be forgotten.

  

I loved the “looks” she would give as she raises one eyebrow…

Color blocking at it’s best in the many sweaters Clair wore.

Working mom fashion at its best:

What’s your favorite Clair episode, outfit or power line?

Throwback Thursday Tribute!

Throwback Thursday Tribute

Celebrating Throwback Thursday by highlighting a fashion rebel and icon who’s been pushing the envelope since 1992 and still stands out above the crowd… Andre’ 3000 !

Although Andre’ is known for his cool lyrics that began with group Outcast and still continues solo, he is even more so recognized for his style. From outlandish costumes to Harlem Renaissance inspired suiting Andre always puts his special twist that then becomes tattooed in the minds of fashionistas like myself.

 

Take a look at some of the fun throwback costumes that kept the blogs buzzing…

Andre’ continues to woo and keeps us talking even off the stage. He is simply debonair! I love his ability to mix patterns and the way he ensures he has the perfect tailored fit.It was no surprise when he introduced his personal line  “Benjamin Bixby” in 2008. Although short lived, there has been talk in GQ of Andre’ returning his line.

Even in his videos he makes a statement with his style! Below is ONE of my favorites…

Salute to you Mr. André Lauren Benjamin… Thanks for being a style icon that can never be forgotten!

Celebrating Throwback Thursday by highlighting an Icon – GRACE JONES

grace jones dolph1 765x1024 OLD: Grace Jones   Pull Up To The Bumper

Grace Jones, who entered as a model in the 70’s opened doors for many in an industry that never embraced the type of beauty she exuded in abundance. Grace was proudly unique and unapologetic! I pay tribute to Grace because not only was she a fashion icon beginning in modeling but she gracefully transition into music and film which will forever label her a legend.

My favorite memories of Grace Jones is definitely her in the movie Boomerang as Strange’, the colorful, unapologetic, wildly untamed character that still has me laughing when thinking of the infamous scene in the restaurant with Eddie Murphy and in the board room discussing “the essence of sex!”

Overall Grace Jones is one that will forever be remembered even many years after her death. But while she is still here with us, I wanted to pay tribute to this phenomenal legend.

Hope you enjoyed!
