In case you missed it Nicki Minaj totally gave Lil Wayne a lap dance/ twerk fest at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards. 

Happy Fashion Friday ladies and gentlemen!

From Punk: Chaos to Couture to clothing line debuts, the past week has been anything but boring! First things first, we NEED to talk about the MET gala that took place last weekend! With the theme of Chaos to Couture, anybody whose anybody was in attendance showcasing their most classy and wild punk couture. My favorite looks were from Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry and Beyonce! Total fashion NO-NOs were Nicole Richie, Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian (sorry). Beyonce’s outfit didn’t scream chaos or punk at all, but it sure yelled couture with everything from her gloves to her custom Givenchy matching print gown and boots.  WHAT CAN’T THIS WOMAN DO? She just released a new Beyonce.com shop and her sun kissed ads have taken over all H&M stores with the Mrs. Carter Summer Collection that’s available…NOW! The pieces in her collection are extremely cute and affordable, so if you’re looking for the right bikini or sundress- run to your nearest H&M store!

Knock, knock…whose there? Nicki Minaj. Nicki Minaj who? Nicki Minaj’s Clothing Line for K-Mart and ShopYourWay! Um…YES!!! Minaj was nice enough to tweet a couple snapshots of pieces from her line and they couldn’t be more on point and perfect for the summer! It’s full of leather bustiers, high waisted skirts, loud printed tights, bedazzled caps, along with so much more. With price points that surely won’t hurt your wallet, be prepared for the world to be infested with Barbies everywhere!

Are you dying to get your hands on pieces from Beyonce and Nicki’s clothing lines? I know I am!

Which line is your fav? Tweet me and let me know!

Until next time-

What if every year there was a place where all sneaker heads came together to share their obsessive sneaker disorder with each other? Well…have no fear because it exists! H-Town Sneaker Summit is a bi-annual event in Houston, Texas where sneaker lovers from all over join forces for one thing only- to get their feet swaged out! Designers, advocates and embracers of the sneaker community comes together twice a year to preview, buy and sell some of the most custom, exclusives kicks in the game.

It only makes sense that this footwear event is larger than life because shoes are the one thing that can either make or break an outfit. 2NE1, Nicki Minaj and A$AP Rocky are no strangers to this sneaker culture. 2NE1 and Nicki Minaj seem to be BFF with out of the box ADIDAS designer Jeremy Scott (remember this ADIDAS commercial featuring all these fierce ladies?) and A$AP Rocky reveals that maybe one day he’ll take a stab at designing sneakers of his own.

Every brand from Reebok and Supra to ADIDAS and Diamond Supply Co were in the building supported by artists like Trinidad James, Bun B, and Teyana Taylor. (Were you able to get your hands on a pair of Harlem GLC’s?)

Some people join the sneaker culture only to collect. Some people only want to stand out and be ahead of the curve while others love it because it’s just a part of their lives. The second H-Town Sneaker Summit event will be held July 28th in Houston, Texas. Will you be attending? Do you have a favorite pair of kicks? Let us know on facebook page or twitter using the hashtag #MCFashionFriday.

See ya next week!

Happy New Year Fashionistas! It’s a new year, a new you and all about going green! Every year Pantone, the God of color, announces its color of the year. 2012’s color was Tangerine Tango and this year’s lucky color is emerald. Pantone describes the color as “Lively.Radiant.Lush….A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony,” giving sense to the pigment of money and things in nature. Let’s be honest…who doesn’t love emerald!

Emerald goes perfectly with black, white or pink. And let’s not forget the smooth, calming combination of emerald and coral for the perfect beach outfit. Emerald screams sophistication, youth, and calmness. Whichever way it is mixed and matched, it can really speak to your emotions. 

Now that we know the trend of 2013, let’s talk about how to style this color.

Evening Wear:

Emerald can be spotted a mile away. Katy Perry’s green silk gown with a chunky silver necklace gave her red carpet look an aged, renaissance feel while Kim Kardashian’s velvet low-cut v-neck dress with gold heels has a more fun and lively approach. Textures can also help give life to a color. Kim’s look is perfect for a date night or an intimate dinner party. I wonder if Kim + baby bump can still fit into that dress? Kanye?

The contrast of MC superstar Nicki Minaj’s dress breaks her look in half giving the illusion of two in one. The black lace top is formal and fitted while the bottom radiantly drapes out giving an elegant and flowing feel perfect for Nicki’s eclectic persona.

Everyday Wear:

St. Patrick’s Day 2013 will be full of so many fashion options! Until then, let’s shower the streets with green. Unless occasion specific, rockin’ all green like One Direction is a complete no-no. You never want to over do it with a color, especially green.

Picking one or two emerald pieces to showcase while accessorizing an outfit is clutch. For accessories, bags, rings, and beanies are my three top picks. Are you a camouflage kind of guy or gal? Camouflage literally goes with anything. An emerald bag paired with an outfit like MC 100 Vet Rihanna’s would have totally pulled her look together!
