The 'Howl at the Moon Tour*' Hits Vegas

So I didn't watch the De La Hoya-Pacquaio fight this weekend, but apparently it was a "Man down", "Code 10" situation before the first punch was thrown. Why people continue to let Keyshia Cole sing our Nation's theme song is beyond me. Jazmine Sullivan,Beyonce,Jennifer Hudson, and 1989 Whitney Houston....where are you when we need you? I wasn't even going to mention the "Dreamgirls" wig, turned backwards to be "different." She should have learned from Effie White that fake hair doesn't always cut it. Chick looks like she used an entire can of Aqua Net to set her coiffure. Ruining what's left of the Ozone Layer is not what's hot in the streets.

Michelle Obama: Style Icon

Our soon-to-be First Lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama, Esq. (gotta love that)is already proving to be something of a fashion plate, and I do believe she's on the fast track to becoming a full-fledged style icon (I'm talking to Jackie O. proportions). Please don't forget what happened when she wore that $148 Donna Ricco dress on The View! It's no surprise that a number of designers are beating down Mrs. O's door, submitting their sketches for their idea(s) of the perfect ensembles her and the girls for the upcoming Inaugural events. Some of the ideas are FLY, and some aren't so fly. Take a gander and let me know what you think!

Here are my top choices for gowns for the many Inaugural balls that will be thrown in and around the District.


Badgley Mischka


Christian Lacroix

Monique Lhullier

A few designers have also submitted daytime attire, that I'm assuming is for the actual swearing-in.

Here are my top choices.

This one literally made me gasp! I love it!

Who else but, Christian Lacroix.


Considering the fact that this (and all) Presidential swearing-in will take place outdoors in January, I'm gonna need Peter Som to design a fabulous winter white coat to go along with this ensemble.

Here's my top choice for Malia and Sasha for a ball.

These designs by Bonnie Young are fabulous without being too "grown."
