It's very rare indeed that we see the 'Umbrella' singer Rihanna so covered up and classy. Riri was in London to promote her new movie 'Battleship' due to be released this coming summer, and she was seen rocking this  olive-green Alexander Wang halter dress with classy black Christian Louboutin pumps. Very nice Rihanna, Very nice.
My first reaction was 'praise the lord!', then 'why didn't she wear some support for her breast, or at least use some tape?', then i remembered 'THIS IS RIHANNA, SO YOU BETTER BE GRATEFUL THAT SHE BOTHERED TO COVER-UP...', so i ended my thoughts at 'Praise the lord!, lol.

Jennifer Lopez
I totally love this look on J.Lo. The neon-green Michael Kors dress is very flattering on her, it's just the perfect size and length for her shape, finishing her look with the hot-pink pumps is just the perfect touch. you like?

Music Mega-star, wife to hip-hop mogul Jay Z, and mother of the most famous celebrity baby Blue Ivy, Beyonce is out and about after giving birth to her baby girl, taking liesurely strolls, doing concerts, attending events, etc. Of course, she is looking GOOD while at it.
In the above picture, at just 10 weeks after giving birth, the singing diva rocked this simple figure-hugging blue dress by Victoria Beckham to Michelle Obama's fund-raiser for Obama's re-election campaign.
I love the dress, and she looks ahhhhhmazing! (say whatever you like...spanx, surrogate...whatever).

Beyonce steps out in style post-baby, looking trim & svelte in dress by Victoria Beckham.

A woman's closet is a very important part of her home. This is why our mums have boxes and boxes of clothes and closet space, while our dads are squeezed into whatever corner is left, lol.
I've always had a clear idea of what my closet will be like, if i had no cash or space limitations, but at the moment, i'm neither rich, nor do i have my own self-built/designed/bought house and closet, so for now, i just admire and dream of perfect closets.
The perfect clothes closet for me, Structured, but with the center column for special things and nick-knacks-

The greatest shoe-rack idea ever! a nice fancy vintage-y hutch to preserve and beautifully display your shoes- 

The 'classic' shoe rack. Efficient and neat. *Just be ready to dust regularly*-
For people with the space, and of course, THE MONEY, you go big, walk-in, and fabulous!

For Jewelry, accessories, pins, etc, a pretty 'plate' is a unique and beautiful idea *all long as you don't have kids around who'll think that the plates are to be used for eating, and your pretty earrings are candies, lol*

Sunglasses, jewelry, etc...

For those who lack space, and dislike clutter, A.K.A me, this is the closet for US...Until we get our dream houses with our dream walk-in closets-

          Photos via- Google, 
The key to having the best, most efficient closet is to-
1.De-clutter. I know, i know, with so many hot clothes out there...what can we ladies do?. but the truth is that, you can only wear so much clothes, shoes, bags and accessories, so, don't hoard everything, Diva!
2. Buy pieces that suit your body, that you really really really love, and of course, that can be worn in different ways.
But hey, what do i know?, maybe if i were as rich as Kimora Lee Simmons, i would have her closet too...

So, this year i'm able to attend the on-going Arise Magazine Fashion Week 2012 holding here in Lagos Nigeria (Thanks to the organizers for giving me the opportunity). Unfortunately, somethings went wrong and the runway shows had to start properly on Thursday 8th March instead of the pre-scheduled Wednesday 7th March, but there was still a good crowd of stylish people at the venue and i took some pictures-

I wasn't able to attend yesterday because i had so much stress at work and my body just shut down (argh!).
More photos coming...
