 It’s official, Lupita N’Yongo is the new celebrity ambassador for the French Beauty company Lancôme. Winning.

Carrie Underwood was spotted on the red carpet of the Academy of Country Music Awards in a beautiful ivory Oscar de la Renta gown. The sleeveless gown featured gold fringe and Carrie finished her look with a pair of Jimmy Choo sandals and David Yurman frosting.

I love the friendships that have developed between the coaches of “The Voice” competition. Blake Shelton seems to be hooking all his new-found buddies up with performance opportunities. Usher made his debut this year at the Houston  Livestock & Rodeo concert series. Unfortunately his performance was riddled with a number of technical difficulties. Usher is a seasoned professional so he made it work. Shakira performed a duet with Blake at the CMA’s and killed it.  She wore a bright red Kristian Aadnevik mini dress with a pair of black thigh high boots.

Miranda Lambert wore a beautiful golden Randi Rahm gown as she nabbed Female Vocalist of the Year, Single Record of the Year, and Song of the Year at the 2014 CMAs. Miranda is easily my favorite female country singer.

Catherine Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge stepped off the airplane in a custom double-breasted Catherine Walker coat/dress that was complimented by a Gina Foster hat. I love the complete look. I honestly don’t know what is cuter...her outfit or her baby. The look on baby Prince George is priceless. He has clearly had enough for the day.

My natural hair inspiration Teyonah Parris looked beautiful in a figure hugging electric blue Philip Armstrong dress. The dress featured an embroidered collar and she finished off her look with L’enfant Terrible strappy pumps and a gorgeous updo. Flawless.
