Introducing Ombre! As seen on celebrities like Ciara, Chanel Iman, Keke Palme and Draya. A fancy word for a hair coloring technique where the color goes on darker at the root and then fades into lighter and brighter highlights on the mid-shaft and ends. The key to getting this trend right is making sure the deeper shade at the root is soft and gradually bleeds out.
Didnt she just have a baby? Great body! Mel B. was having her some retail therapy at the Chanel boutique in West Hollywood a few days ago. She rocked a $1495 Stella McCartney V Neck Cady Jumpsuit, a Bottega Veneta Tote, and $1355 Christian Louboutin Altadama Python Peep Toe Pumps.

We got hold of upcoming artist Feliciana Cacciapuoti. Her style can only be described as edgy, and it is easy to see how a person would believe she is a star. And that’s a good thing because Feliciana is a part of the star making industry.
Adrienne Bailon is looking swell wearing a grey halterneck dress. It’s hard to see it cause she's sitting, but you can get a similar look with this $750 Marc Jacobs Wool-jersey halterneck maxi dress.
The first time I saw the photos of Oge Okoye’s shaved head on the set of a new movie, I wondered how much it would cost to get an actress to go bald. While “shaving it all off” is trendy in some countries such as South Africa, in Nigeria, it is synonymous with certain cultures which force widows to shave off their hair after the death of their husbands. What do you think?
I love her feminine style with retro influences. Thumbs up for knowing how to dress for your body type! Curvy or otherwise, this DIVA knowns how to accentuate her curves, maintain her femininity and work it! Now that is inspirational to ME!

For all the Latino's and Latina's, the Mun2 Network has produced an interesting original documentary exploring what it means to be "Black And Latino" in America. This is not only about America but about Europe to. Their are many Black latino's who are still being discriminated because of their black color. Just like one Colombian girl said: As a Colombiano negrito I've always been proud of my black side even after being ridiculed by my mom's white Colombian side for it. They despised me wearing my hair in twists as a teen and identifying with black culture as well as Colombian. It's amazing what ignorance you come across or plain disregard for also being "latino".
