. Look of the Week .

                                        10.24.08 by you.

* So, I’ve chosen my fave looks from last week’s star-studded events. It’s obvious that I pretty much like them all, but I wanna see how you all feel.

Kerry – She was spotted last week @ an NYC fashion event, wearing a black Marchesa Resort 2009 gown, with jeweled embellishments. She was def one of the best out the bunch!
Solange – Solo looks super-cute in this belted 3.1 Phillip Lim mini-dress, and Miu Miu Dragonfly sandals. I love her hair, and she no doubt wore this better than the last few.
Ciara – Receiving Billboard Mag’s “Woman of the Year” award, Ci posed for the cameras in what I feel is an amazing business-fashionable ensemble! She wore a fitted white blazer, crisp black bustier dress, and a fab pair of Balenciaga’s Escarpin booties, straight from Balenciaga’s Fall 2008 line. She too, wore this better than her competition.

Sanaa – I love her in this silk marigold Fall 2008 Catherine Malandrino dress. The peep-toe booties gives it a more playful look.
Keri – Fresh off the set of her latest video, Keri looked so sweet at last week’s BET Hip Hop Awards show, in her heart-shaped purple and grey leopard-print strapless dress.
Thandie – Wearing this lovely Chanel Resort 2009 mini, with flexible plastic and floral detailing, completed by a classical set of Christian Louboutin pumps, I think it’s safe to say that Thandie’s one of 2008’s Best Dress Brown Sistas!

  1. Solange! The Miu Miu sandals set it off for me. I am normally a fan of anything Balenciaga , but not feeling Ci’s shoes. I like Thandie’s look for the second set, but Solo overall.

  2. I really like Ciara’s shoes. They’re pretty dope.
    Billboard magazine gave her “Woman of the Year” though?? What did she do and where have I been that I missed it?

    Luv Keri- she’s beautiful. I like her dress too.
    Sanaa’s entire look is lovely, to me!

  3. Keri’s boots were not made for walking! those boots destroyed the entire outfit. a total NO NO

  4. Sanaa Lathans shoe boots are terrible as well. I just don’t get this trend. It’s time to move on cause this look is not good.

  5. The best I have seen Solange in a long time. They are all beautiful. Keri’s dress is cute, but too short in the front for me.

  6. Hey Brownsistas!!! I chose to go with Kerry Washingtons look. She is such a beauty! Solange’s look is cool too!!

  7. Kerry has been looking great lately! and I love Thandie’s dress, is it me or does she look like shes gaining some much needed weight? In any event all of them look gorgeous, I just cant avert my eyes from Keri Hilson’s shoes! and thats the best Ive seen Cici look in a while, shes a natural beauty, she doesnt need to try so hard

  8. All of these ladies are very attractive; all are wearing very pretty clothes. But I’m having a little trouble understanding the shoes of Sanaa Lathan and Keri Hilson and what those shoes have to do with what they are rearing.

  9. @ Misty Knight.
    Please go down to the bottom of the home page, click on the box containing the number “2”, then go to the Ciara subject; I’ve left you a little message.

  10. ^^^^^
    Oh smooth thug I left you a message to! lets give it a rest ok! Treuce teach?

  11. “rearing”?
    even the “All Knowing Proffesor” has errors I see! ok Im done 🙂

  12. J.C Chavez! are those Ciara’s legs pictured on the link? whoa her legs a ripped, I knew she was fit but ..WOW! her calfs are crazy!

  13. Ciara and Thandie Newton win my vote as my favorite fashionistas. Both look great and I could not choose just one. Great pictures of everyone though.

  14. @ Smooth Thug, I feel you on the shoe issue. Sometimes people take fashion risks and it doesn’t always work out. I’m noticing that a lot of people are taking risks when it come to the shoes….it seems to be a trend now.

  15. Ciara looks absolutely flawlesssssssssssss :bowdown: :bowdown: Ciara will always be my pick,,…….. :bowdown:

  16. @ Misty Knight.
    Exuse me? I also see that you can’t read. “Rear” can also mean the heelpiece of a shoe? Look it up yourself in Webster’s New World Dictionary. That’s what I meant in my use of the word “rearing”, as it pertains to the shoes that Ms.Lathan and Ms. Hilson had on. And besides, I wasn’t talking about the spelling and punctuation of other posters here, I was talking about yours. So don’t change the subject! Here’s an example: professor has 1 f and 2 s’s… it’s “professor”, not “Proffesor”; it’s “truce”, not “Treuce”. Further, my logic is simple as well… people don’t have any spare money at this time. I can’t make it any easier than that. If you weren’t such a mental Lilliputian, you would have understood that the first time I wrote it. So let me say it one more time, here’s my logic… Ciara’s record company would “release” if they were more confident in her ability to “push units” to a public that is unwilling to spend money at this time.
    “Agree to disagree”? “Treuce” ( That spelling. Lord, have mercy)? That’s fine with me. However, with all regret, yet without any compunction whatsoever, I must inform you that due to your insufficient academic performance, I have been left with no other choice but to extricate you from Smooth Thug State University. At this time, I highly advise you to diligently and vigorously seek remedial education with all possible haste. “Umkay snookums?!” ? Good luck. Believe me, you’re going to need it.

  17. :lol2: i love all these sisters…..

  18. :lol2: Oh God Lady/Dude it was a JOKE!!!!!!!!!!! please calm down! and obviously the public is willing to spare thier hard pressed dollars for the artist who I previously mentioned who are having little difficulty selling albums, regardless of the economic situation, and like I said before December is not gonna be any different, then November ! Gawd have you always had such difficulty letting go ? or do you enjoy holding on to grudges? I can admit Im no Akeelah, and Im amused at how upset you appear, but you need to take it down like a thousand, I see youre actually serious about this whole teacher/ University concept eh? I mean if you insist on continuing by all means do what makes you happy, if that means engaging in long convoluted rants about meaningless blog topics then hey, Good for you! everybody has thier something! till next time Lover Chao!

  19. 2 Misty Knight:

    yes. the first photo, where you can see the back of her leg, is ciara. her calves are amazing. the last pic is just a general model pic of the shoe.

  20. ******** Attention, y’all; you too “Misty Knight”. This is off subject, but we all need to be careful when we vote. The state of New Mexco is allowing early voting, OK? Now. A lady in New Mexico showed up at her local polling place to vote yesterday; she was wearing a t-shirt that said “Obama” and had a picture of Barack on the front of it. The polling people turned her away and didn’t allow her to vote because that is considered campaigning in favor of a candidate; that is against the law if it is done within 100 feet of any polling place. So if you’re going to vote early, or if you’re going to wait for election day, please don’t wear anything having to do with Barack… a t-shirt, a sweatshirt, a button, etc. They’re getting ready to start, good people. Barack Obama haters are going to do everything they can think of, legal or otherwise, to block Barack from becoming the next president. Please tell all of your friends. This very serious business, y’all.

  22. Ciara hair is messing the whole look up , with a simple ponytail she would have look cute yet, elegant
    all the sisters look great :bowdown:

  23. I do not like Ciara’s outfit; hair and everythang seems overdone to me. She reminds me of the video with all the women wearing red lipstick and the same outfits playing instruments while a white guy sang, can’t remember his name.
