The video premiere shocked the world and received a poetic review from newly Editor At Large of Elle Magazine, Melissa Harris-Perry.

She stated, “What would happen if we took the hopes, dreams, pain, joy, loss, bodies, voices, stories, expressions, styles, families, histories, futures of black girls and women and put them in the center and started from there? Lemonade happens.”

What a thought-provoking question for all women; trying to better understand society, politics, and relationships.

Met Gala 2015 Glamorous Recap and Photos

Fashion lovers everywhere witnessed the glamour, creativity, and art of The Met Gala 2015 or formally known as the Costume Institute Gala.  Celebrities showed up wearing intricate designs and show stopping hats while music artists were seen wearing sheer gowns.

This year’s theme was China: Through The Looking Glass which was based upon a document.  The annual fundraising event attracted entertainers and fashion industry professionals; purchasing a ticket to support the Metropolitian Museum of Art Costume Institute.  Although this night was amazing in it’s own right, there’s always a memorable moment!

My favorite costume of the night goes to the lovely and talented Beyonce.  Her dress was show stopping, appropriate according to the theme (loving her high ponytail) and it was detailed couture.  My least favorite selection came from Gabrielle Union.  Unfortunately, her dress did not exemplify the theme of the event and appeared to be a winter gown.  I love Gabby (and hubby) but I’m hoping they will do better next year.  She has a fabulous body and would like to have a designer create a gown for her figure.

Honorable mention goes to Blake Lively, Solange Knowles, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian West, and Jennifer Lopez.  The ladies listed did it just right and added a special touch of whimsy to the evening!

Solange Knowles and Alan Ferguson Wedding Photos

There’s something to be said when you dare to be different. Today, Solange Knowles married her long time sweetheart Alan Ferguson. Based upon the photos below, she chose a modern, minimalistic style which has inspired “creative spirits” everywhere.

 

The most unique element about the wedding was the entire wedding party wearing all white. Solange has always been known for her artistic style with beautiful natural hair and her fashionable photos.  And we can’t get enough of her white pantsuit.

What an inspirational non-traditional way to say your vows. And that my dears is how you “break the internet!”
