Threads At the Grammys

Following my previous post, here is some of the fashion that was seen at this year’s Grammy Awards:

Inside this strange, alien-looking egg is none other than Lady Gaga. What a surprise eh?!…

Little Bieebs. He didn’t score himself any Grammys, but he is looking adorable in this white Dolce & Gabbana suit.

Nicki Minaj in Givenchy. I love the leopard in her hair and I love how daring she is, but I think the tights are a little too much leopard.

Sex and the City 2 NYC Premiere

With the release this Friday, the 27th, Sex and the City 2 premiered in New York City this past Monday, the 24th, at the legendary Radio City Music Hall presented by Mercedes-Benz and Maybach.

I’ve always enjoyed the series and was sad when it ended, but the news of a movie was exciting. When the first Sex and the City movie came out in 2008, I thought it was a bit creepy because Samantha turned 50 and was still sleeping around, but I guess the message is that women can be strong, successful, and independent without needing to depend on a man.

Although I find the story lines a bit cheesy sometimes, I do enjoying seeing all the beautiful fashions exuding luxury and extravagance with Carrie’s style being my favorite. Here are some photos from the premiere:

Sarah Jessica Parker in Valentino Couture

Kristin Davis in Jean Dress

Kim Cattrall looks absolutely stunning in Naeem Khan.

Cynthia Nixon in Carolina Herrera
