Lupita Nyong'o, Chanel Iman, Katy Perry and more This Week in Fashion...

Ashley Madekwe looked svelte and chic while attending the Burberry Prorsum Fall fashion show. Ashley wore a Burberry Brit leather biker jacket over top a calf length curve hugging LBD. Black and Gold strappy heels finished her look.


Beauty Nicole Beharie was spotted on the red carpet of the 2014 NAACP Image Awards wearing a black Saint Laurent gown that features some revealing cut-outs and sequins. You might recall seeing Kim Kardashian murdering everybody in this gown on a 2013 Holiday Card. Sadly we all can’t fill out a dress like Kimmy but Nicole is holding her own and holding it down for the athletically built women. I see you Nicole!


Naomie Harris stunned on the red carpet of the 2014 NAACP Image Awards in a beautiful golden Valentino gown. The gown featured plunging neckline and was composed of a lacy gold-leaf sheer material. A burnt orange Rauwolf clutch, Jimmy Choo heels, and minimal H. Stern frosting finished off Naomie’s look.


My obsession with the award winning actress and gift from God to the fashion world Lupita Nyong’o is very real. Not only did she take home the award for Best Supporting Actress at the NAACP Image Awards, she also was best dressed.  Lupita chose a beautiful burnt orange Givenchy gown that featured a plunging neckline that was met with a waist cinching wrap of material. Lupita finished her look with a H. Stern gold cuff, matching Givenchy sandals, and a box clutch.


DuJour Magazine celebrated cover girl Lupita Nyong’o in New York and Lupita dazzled in a Peter Pilotto ‘Mira’ Resort 2014 dress. She matched the green printed frock with Manolo Blahnik lime green pumps, a golden Michael Nelson clutch and Joan Horing frosting.


Katy Perry was spotted at the Elle Style Awards sporting designer Vivienne Westwood ‘Gold Label Capsule Collection’ to accept her Elle Woman of the Year award. Katy’s ‘Prestige’ ivory silk rose printed gown features asymmetrical draping that compliments her figure. Cinderella-esque Christian Louboutin ‘Body Strass’ pumps finished off her fab look.


British rapper Tinie Tempah made a dapper entrance to the 2014 Brit Awards wearing a two-toned Dolce & Gabbana suit. The ensemble featured a textured blazer/vest and cropped trousers. Sock-free black loafers finished his look.


Chanel Iman was spotted at the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 50 Years of Swim in NYC Celebration wearing a silver Rami Al Ali beaded pleated gown that featured a deep plunging neckline. A silver Christian Louboutin clutch, an EF Collection bracelet, and Liv Haley frosting finished her look.


Also spotted at the 2014 Brit Awards was British singer Labrinth. Styled to a T he sported a Paisley printed Louis Vuitton Fall 2013 tuxedo jacket that featured a contrast shawl lapel.  A black turtle neck sweater, a pair of black skinny jeans, and black pointy-toe ankle boots finished his look.


Idris Elba attended the 2014 NAACP Image awards as himself. I mean…he wore a tux? I mean he pretty much can do whatever he wants, right? So #thatisall.


Chanel Iman attended the Club SI Swimsuit Party and wore a bright fuchsia Roland Mouret ‘Pavo’ strapless gown and carried a Roland Mouret’s ‘Palais Royal’ clutch.

A special shout-out to lovely ladies of ‘Scandal’ whostormed the red carpet of the NAACP Image Awards looking amazing. Bellamy Young a.k.a  Mellie wore a David Meister red matte jersey strapless gown. Katie Lowes a.k.a Quinn wore a black Halston Heritage jacquard gown.  Darby Stanchfield a.k.a. Abby wore an emerald Carolina Herrera scoop-neck gown.
