I haven't been excited about a model for a long time because of the lackluster, no personality and blah models on the catwalk left me wanting for more. When I first laid my eyes on Arlenis Sosa in the Fall 2008 runway shows, it was a serious who is that? The 19 year old Dominican beauty is beyond gorgeous with her stunning bronze skin. She was discovered by a local designer who sent her pictures to a friend at the Marilyn Agency in New York and they flew her out and she was signed on the spot! Arlenis walked all of the most influential designers runway such as Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Christian Dior and Jason Wu. Arlenis is going to be the face of Lancome 2009 campaign. It usually takes years for a model of color to book a deal as such and to strut on the runway for A-list designers but Arlenis accomplish all of this right out of the gate! I pray she remains humble and don't get caught up in the fashion world foolishness!

Best Dressed Diva Of The Week

It was an extremely close call between Alicia Keys' gorgeous royal blue Indian inspired Armani Prive dress and Gabrielle Union's stunning midnight navy Reem Acra dress. I just loved that Alicia took a risk with her accessories and she looked magnificent!

Red Carpet Transformation: Kim Kardashian

Red Carpet Glory

Red Carpet Tacky Hotmess!

I thought it would never come the day that I will put sophisticated and chic in the same sentence with Kim Kardashian. I am so used to seeing her in tight, short and revealing ensembles paired with her atrocious hair extensions but lately she has been giving me fever in elegant and divine pieces. I believe Kim finally decided to hire a real stylist and wear more appropriate silhouettes. She also toned down her caked on make-up as well to a more natural hue. Now, all she needs to do is work on getting a real career!

Terry Richardson Exhibition Opening For Vogue

Estelle looks beyond stunning in this tre chic black belted dress but the spotlight is on her gold metallic textured clutch! I immensely love her look from head to toe!

"Pasty" Clothing Launch Party in London

Vanessa and Angela Simmons look fabulous as usual but I really need to ask this serious question, who the hell is buying their Pasty line?

"Special" Los Angeles Premiere

All good things most come to an end. Taraji P. Henson was on a winning streak with her ensembles until today. I don't know what is worst between the miscellaneous drab black suit or her ridiculous country "Texas Ranger" green suede boots?

12th Annual Miami Gala
Vivica Fox looks great in this printed ethnic maxi dress.

Meagan Good really needs a make-under. Everything from her hair, make-up and wardrobe choices are just way too much. She is an extremely beautiful girl so there is no need to be over-the-top!

Interscope American Music Awards

I am sorry but Elise Neal looks broke down. I have a golden rule; if your hair is not done, please do not leave the house or wear a fabulous hat!

British Fashion Awards 2008

Jourdan Dunn looks absolutely divine in this white strapless Stella McCartney dress. This is like watching Naomi Campbell in the 1990's all over again!

New York City Ballet 2008-2009 Season Opening

Vanessa Williams looks amazing in this chic silver embroidered strapless dress.

Rachel Roy is the queen of easy flowing silhouettes. She knows how to make an evening gown less stuffy and modern. I love this look!

I adore this black sheered puff sleeves dress on Veronica Webb and her lucite crystal statement necklace is pure heaven!

I am still on the fence with Sarah Jessica Parker black with silver Balmain crystal adorned dress. It's unique and sexy but I am not falling off my seat.

Again, I am not jumping out of my seat about Deborah Roberts red dress. I do love the color but it falls flat.

"Quantum of Solance" Japan Premiere

Olga Kurylenko is wearing Chanel and I came to the conclusion three things had to have happened to produce this atrocious look.

The first is her fashion stylist is on crack!

The second is she is on crack!

The third is hair stylist is on crack!

Madagacar Escape 2 Africa Madrid Premiere

I am kind of digging this jungle chic look on Jada Pinkett Smith ensemble. It's hip and fabulous!

"Australia" New York Premiere

Nicole Kidman looks gorgeous in this black and gold sequined Dries Van Noten dress.

Alicia Witt looks fabulous in this purple satin tuxedo Catherine Malandrino dress.
