Michelle Obama’s Red Gown is Fashion Faux Pas

It would be ironic if nobody bothers to talk about you if you were the President’s wife right? So, controversies, positive and negative news that are being thrown to the first lady of America is not as good as new.
Being the better half of the President of the United States of America, she will always be in the limelight from the type and brand of shoes and dresses she wears during special events up to the kind of outfits she wore at the White House.
The latest controversy Michelle Obama is facing right now is the criticism uttered by one of the renowned fashion designer in the fashion world -- Oscar de la Renta.
De la Renta vehemently criticized the Alexander McQueen red plus size dresses that Michelle Obama donned at the state dinner with China’s President Hu Jintao.
“My understanding is that the visit was to promote American-Chinese trade — American products in China and Chinese products in America. “Why do you wear European clothes?” Oscar de la Renta said. He was expecting that the first lady will wear a Chinese inspired dress made by a Chinese designer but rather the first lady opted for a European made dress.
Michelle Obama typically snub issues about her but this time she made a fiercely comment regarding this controversy.
“Look, women, wear what you love. That’s all I can say. That’s my motto. I wear what I like because; I gotta be in the dress, so…” the first lady said.
Very well said Madam! That’s a good practice of freedom.

Aaliyah: Now a 32-year old Angel

It was 6:45 in the evening of August 25, 2001 when a group of musician boarded a small aircraft in Bahamas going to the United States when suddenly shortly after the plane take off, a sudden heart pounding explosion was heard. And there it was the plane that Aaliyah and her crew were on crashed.

Now, it’s been 9 long years since Aaliyah left this world because of that tragic plane accident and should have celebrated her 32nd birthday on January 16 if she’s still alive. The world was in shocked and in deep awe when news spread concerning her untimely death. Why untimely death? Because she was on the verge of reaching the peak of her career both in the movie and music scene and with just a flick of a finger she’s gone – forever.

It really seems true to her that “Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number” because at a young age she had achieved so much and have lived a happy life. This “Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number” is her ever first released album at the age of 12 and was an instant bombshell that sold over three million copies in the United States. The carrier song “Back and Forth," was at Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and a No. 1 R&B song for 1994.

Her second multi-platinum album in 1996 entitled “One in A Million” made her even more famous in the music industry. Her music videos were very enticing and well crafted so as the different elegant women’s suits she donned at every video. Her voice captivated the motion picture company, and let her song be a soundtrack for the movie” Romeo Must Die” wherein she also co-starred in. This is her debut acting that earned her earned her "Best Female Performance" and "Breakthrough Performance Female" nominations for MTV's 2001 Movie Awards.

Because of her superb acting skills, she was given the opportunity to play the lead role in the movie “The Queen of the Damned” wherein she played the role of a vampire queen named Akasha and wore sultry superficial outfits.

Her supposedly third album is not yet finished because of her sudden death, but on December 10, 2002, the Blackground Records released their so called posthumous album of Aaliyah entiled I Care 4 U. the album consists of Aaliyah’s greatest hits and her six unreleased songs.
Aaliyah’s life is one true inspiration and a girl that’s worth missing. Although she may not be visible in our eyes, her voice will live forever through her songs.

Cicely Tyson is BET’s Theatrical Arts Honoree

Because of her invaluable impact and contribution for the arts and in the movie industry as a whole, Cicely Tyson was named as BET’s Theatrical Arts Honoree for 2011.
This TV legend is one woman that lifted up the banner of black women through the years by being in the film industry, as she only considered playing roles that portrays good and positive characteristics of a black woman. She rather chooses not to have a job in years than to play “exploitation films”.
Cicely made this notable statement when asked why she committed to participate in films that depicts only the positive images of a black woman, “The lesser of two evils for me is to wait, rather than do something that isn't right." Challenges make you discover things about yourself that you never really knew. They're what make the instrument stretch-what make you go beyond the norm." The choices of roles I made had to do with educating and entertaining. And as a result I found myself working only every two or three years."
This multitalented actress was born and raised in Harlem, New York by her religious parents. No wonder that aside from having a good taste on formal church wear for women, her strong willed characteristic and moral values are deeply rooted in her personality.
Her career starts as a model of Ebony Magazine before she hit the movie industry. One renowned movie she starred with is the true to life story movie “The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman (1974)”, in which she earned her 2 Emmys and at the same time made her the first African American Actress to win an Emmy award for Outstanding Lead Actress .
Her superb talent as an actress will surely be passed on to generations because of her The Cicely Tyson School of Performing and Fine Arts, a magnet school in East Orange, New Jersey which teach students on how to enhance more their talents and skills in acting and in the arts.
She is indeed an epitome of dignity, beauty and talent.

Raven’s Biggest ‘Loss’ for 2011

You may be wondering what would be the significant loss this Disney sweetheart may have been through for 2011. Well, her ‘loss’ is acclaimed by many especially the fashion enthusiasts because she did look hotter than ever! Yes! Raven’s slimmer figure was very much visible when she stepped up in the blue carpet at the recent People’s Choice Awards.

But having a thin body now, this former “The Cosby Show” star is not that comfortable of her new look “because I don’t like the way people stare at me. I liked it before. Now, you’re just looking at me for the wrong reasons. Before, you were actually looking at me for a real reason, “I thought I looked fabulous before and nobody else did.” she said.

Being contented in her “thick and fabulous” figure before, maybe Raven is a little bit on the adjustment side on how to carry well her new “thin and even more fabulous” body. Maybe now, she is having a hard time to shop for new dresses for her wardrobe such as party dresses, church dresses, and sitcom dresses and even swim wears. Because she won’t definitely be needing anymore those plus sizes dresses she used to wear before. I am looking forward for her new choices of dresses and style now that she has a wow figure to show off.

Charlotte Church’s Captivating Comeback

The voice of an angel will captivate your soul this Christmas season as Charlotte Church will give away 12 signed copies of her "Back To Scratch" album starting Dec.6.

Her album title Back from Scratch tells more of her personal life experience, especially on the category of love, particularly her official split with her long time partner Gavin Henson.

"I wasn't aware of it at the time, but I was drawing on my own pain. That gave the song a bit of soul. It made the personal stuff a little less horrendous." said Charlotte.

Aside from the touching song lyrics, what was more remarkable in her comeback is her slim body figure. She’s no longer a full figured woman who was always in plus size dresses, but a hot momma. She was even offered to be the new face of the Ultimo Company to showcase their new batch of lingerie, but she turned down the offer.

When asked about it, Charlotte explained,” I say no to almost everything. Michelle Mone asked me to be the face of Ultimo lingerie, but to do a perfume or my own bras would just encourage people to forget what I’m about”.

With this, Charlotte want people to see that she is still the wholesome and dignified singer just like when she was a kid.
