Mobama Is, Like, Obsessed With Monique Pean

With Earth Day quickly approaching, it’s time to devote your attention to nature. Whether you’re one of the smart few who regularly works to keep our planet healthy, or you’ve just become inspired as of late, it’s important to recognize those who marry their talents with their passion to save the world. One jewelry designer who’s always given her attention to Mother Nature is Monique Pean. And she has some major support, in the form of Michelle Obama. The designer started her career in finance, but realized her passion for jewelry and launched her own line in 2005, with a major focus on staying socially responsible and eco-friendly by using conflict-free stones only. Monique won the 2009 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund and the 2009 Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award for Accessories, partnered with Charity:Water, and supports the No Dirty Gold campaign — proving that her talent is one to watch, for both her message and gems. In the time she’s been creating, she quickly she gained the love of MObama. Recently, the First Lady was spotted in Mexico City, practically dripping in jewelry by Monique Pean. Check her stuff out here. Keep reading »

How To Get The Tie Dye Trend Right

Apparently tie dye is a full-blown trend at this point; we literally can’t go a day without being visually assaulted by the stuff. Sometimes, the girls we see wearing it are pulling it off. Other times, however, it’s a hot hippie mess all over the place. If you insist on joining the hordes of latter-day-free-lovers, make sure to get it right. A few tips after the jump. Keep reading »

Shocker: Style Biting Prevalent In Pop Stardom


It seems like all the blogosphere wants to talk about today is Ke$ha‘s crappy “Saturday Night Live” performances this weekend (slow news day?) and how she is all Lady Gaga wanna-bein’ it up and totally stole Sia’s “Buttons” performance style since her (pretty wack) costume glowed in the dark, blah, blah … After checking out Sia’s performance on Jimmy Kimmel a few years back, I can certainly see the similarities. But it’s no different than Lady Gaga’s own incessant copy-catting of Grace Jones, Róisin Murphy (check out all the outfits Gaga has copped) and other fashion and pop idols. The fact is, much like fashion is cyclical, so are performance styles. I’m not defending the little punk, but for all her crimes, this is a big fat nothing. Watch the clip after the jump!

Jennifer Lopez Wears Good Earrings In A Bad Movie

India Earrings, $68, Judith Bright
Gold Paisley Earrings, $58, Judith Bright

Sometimes trailers do the opposite of what they’re supposed to do, which is get you to go to the movie. After seeing the preview for Jennifer Lopez‘s new movie, “The Back-up Plan,” I definitely won’t be plunking down $15 to see it in theaters. However, I might take the money I save by not watching it and put that toward the purchase of a pair of earrings she wears in the movie. Three different Judith Bright earring styles adorn Jennifer’s ears in “The Back-up Plan,” and while I tend to go for post earrings, these simple danglers would be a fun change, especially since they won’t completely deplete my bank account at $53 to $68 a pair. And, if you do end up seeing the film, send the jewelry company your ticket stub by May 31 for 20 percent off, which will essentially recoup the cost of your movie ticket.

Jada, We Didn’t Mean To Make You Feel Left Out!

Jada Pinkett Smith didn’t make our list of “Sexy Celebs Who Can Go Braless” this morning, but she’s further proof that small-chested women can look stunning in v-necks. Her animal-print, polka dot hybrid gown is also beautiful with the red clutch that adds the right pop of color. [L.A., 4/17/10] Keep reading »

I Survived The Cynthia Vincent For Target Debut

I’m not really one to wait in line for hours in the hopes of spending money on so-and-so’s designer collaboration. One, I don’t really enjoy owning something that thousands of other women own too. Two, why should I wait in line to spend my money? Three, the construction of most designer/retail chain items is really shoddy. But the minute I laid my eyes on the Cynthia Vincent for Target gladiator wedges, I knew they would be mine. Oh yes, I just had to have them! Keep reading »
