RULA JEBREAL; Person To Watch

12:56 am

There is a new talking head and journalist crossing over and making a name for herself in American media, and she is FIERCE! She has all the qualities that I admire in a woman which range from very serious to the superficial. Her name is Rula Jebreal.

Rula Jebreal

Rula Jebreal (born April 24, 1973) is an Italian-Palestinian journalist, novelist, and screenwriter with both Israeli and Italian citizenship.

She is fluent in five languages: Italian, English, Arabic, Hebrew, and German.

You know, I have a category on this blog called News Bunny’s that I dedicate to mostly sensational and over the top female and sometimes male news anchors. Why? Well, there was a time when I used to watch a lot of cable news as opposed to now, where I do not watch TV at all… its too depressing! My TV boycott has been going on for about 2 years and I hardly miss it. So if I am featuring Miss Jebreal, it is because I find her to be very impressive, admirable and fierce.

OK, now to cover her for you in the fun way that I love to do, you know…a world view through the prism of my eyes? Here goes!!!!

This is her standing next to HER DAUGHTER!!! GASP!!! Some women can do it all.

Just like Naomi Campbell, she wears a lot of Azzedine Alaia dresses

She looks like the Indian actress Freida Pinto (in green) who played her in a movie she wrote inspired by her life- Miral.

This is Miss Universe 2008, Dayana Mendoza of Venezuela... I rest my case.

Personally, the thing I find to be the most impressive about her is that, she was raised in an orphanage! Talk about triumph over adversity? Bravo girl!

With that said, check her out in the video below from yesterday, she is a take no none sense and straight to the point type of girl. She spares you all the crap and is not afraid to call you out on your BS.

Style & Grace

Jul 11, 2014 3:13 am

It has been a while since I came upon an image that I found to be visually stimulating to my style and fashion senses. These moments are few and far between, and the majority of them unfortunately for me, are from eras past, such as Old Hollywood. So because I am very rarely moved by peoples fashion choices. I march to the beat of my own drum and consider myself a fashion and style artist, with my body being the canvas, and my imagination the medium- the act of putting myself together is what I (and many others I assume) consider a work of art- and yes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I cannot win them all.

With that said, today I stumbled upon one such image that moved me in the way that conjures all sorts of positive reflexes.

Jennifer Lopez impeccably coordinated with her little mini me daughter.

Did you ever see a better styled mother daughter team. So fierce and beautiful, my kind of  girls. LOVE!

When was the last time I got moved this year? Well, it was in how the Italian actress Monica Bellucci put herself together for the 2014 MET Gala Ball. Check it out below.

So now you know, since I rarely get moved, I just move myself. This should give you an idea and understanding of my outfits and the process of bringing them to life. Just in case you wondered.

Dare I Ask…Is Naomi Campbell Pregnant?

Jul 10, 2014 8:33 am

Ok, for anyone that knows me or reads my blog, it is no secret that Naomi Campbell has always been a source of great inspiration to me. Fierce model on the runway and she is not just a designers clothes hanger, she also exudes the same glamorous persona off the runway as an extension of who she is, an inspiration to many including me like I mentioned, a champion for equality and diversity, a strong black woman and above all, an icon- a living legend in her time.

I can go on and on tirelessly about Naomi, from when I first saw her in a magazine in my early teens in Kenya, she was revolutionary and she has always maintained a special place (without sounding too deep coz I don’t know her and have never met her) in my heart. It is no surprise that she is the only person with their own category on my blog.

ANYWAY, I have been keeping my eye on her appearances (like I always do) so that I can post all the hot pics of our ethereal diva to keep us all going AND lately, she has been looking very curious to me. For one, she is glowing a little more than she does and, her styling (which is always flawless) is very suspicious.

It might just be wishful thinking but, could it be that the goddess Naomi Campbell is pregnant? Or is she just fat? KIDDING!!!! Naomi -Will-Never-Be-Fat-Ever ( snaps and said in Whitney Houston’s voice).  Here are three pictures of her last public appearances spanning about two months or so, starting with the earliest to the latest. You be the judge.

Doesn’t it look like she is employing all the fashion concealing, illusionist tricks into her wardrobe? Are my eyes seeing what they want to see…a none existent baby bump?

You know if I am right, I am officially going to be the self proclaimed, BIGGEST Naomi Campbell fan in the world. Or I could just have thrown my reputation down the drain because I should know better.

We shall see! Who is the father? Unless its Iman, I don’t really care, we want an heir to the throne!

ps. I hope she doesn’t see this lest she thinks I am creepy.

Recap

6:58 am

Someone just sent me the link to this really hot picture of me from The Power Ball, an event I attended earlier this year. Thank you Backseat Stylers, you rock! Click here for more pics from the event.

I Am Back!

Jul 8, 2014 7:28 pm

Yes, I have had a long hiatus from the blog. The big announcement is that I am going back to school in the fall and I have been busy engulfed with the whole process. I have had to put some things on the back burner. It doesn’t mean that I have taken the fun out of life and refused to live, I have just been doing it outside the sphere of this blog.

The good news is, even though I have not been carrying my camera, I still have a cellphone which I used to take pictures here and there. So here are pictures of me that will cover my 2 week absence. Like I mentioned, I took them with my phone and sometimes in nightclubs with lighting that was unpredictable and constantly changing, thats why some of them are a little off.

At a White Party, my dress was made out of woven leather strips. So hot!

At a pool party. This outfit people initially thought was inspired by Roberto Cavalli, but it was actually inspired by a picture from French Vogue that a friend of mine had sent me last year. It stuck with me.

Last Sunday afternoon at the beach.

At a nightclub dancing my ass off...thankfully everything stayed in place ;-)

At another nightclub

Walking on a warm beautiful summer night with my friend visiting from Brazil

At a party with a friend who decided to go back to the Marie Antoinette era

At another nightclub, this outfit was very fun to put together and create, it took many weeks to finalize the look.

This was such a fun Sunday afternoon.

Naomi Campbell in Alexander McQueen

Jun 21, 2014 4:59 pm

Check out the goddess herself, miss Naomi Campbell as she steps out head to toe in Alexander McQueen.

This is a look from that horrible Alexander McQueen collection from October 2013. If you recall, I said, ”  The only person that can pull this one off correctly and look flawless at it is probably Naomi Campbell. Everyone else steer clear lest you end up looking like Big Bird.” Prophecy fulfilled! #MissCleo
