The 46th Annual NAACP Image Awards were held last Friday at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California. The show, hosted by comedian Anthony Anderson, celebrated the achievements of people of colour in film, television, literature and music. The star-studded event also showcased some gorgeous ensembles on the red carpet and of course, I wanted to share some of the looks with you. Here are some of my faves.

Gabrielle Union rocked a blush-hued Gauri & Nainika gown featuring side cutouts.

Star of Beyond The Lights, Gugu Mbatha-Raw hit up the Hollywood premiere of the film on Wednesday night looking bomb.com in a bluebird long-sleeved Stella McCartney dress (yours for $4035…yikes!). Ok so forget the price for a second…This dress is everything! The open back oozes sexiness yet the trim in scallop lace exudes sophistication.

Love every single detail of this dress. She perfected her look with a simple pair of black pumps and matching clutch.

Actress Sanaa Lathan also came out to support. I’m loving her in bright colours lately. She worked this orange & black Tanya Taylor dress and looked fab. What are your thoughts?

Hello November!

IMG_3835.JPG
November’s here already! Although this means that it’s almost hibernation time for me (since I am allergic to cold weather), there are still some great things happening this month that will force get me out of the house…

In film:
1- Beyond The Lights (premieres November 14th). This film is about a music superstar, Noni (played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw), who struggles with the pressures of fame and success to the point where she contemplates suicide…I’m hoping this movie can shed some light on this issue and help those with suicidal thoughts to speak up and reach out.

2- Mocking jay – Part 1 (premieres November 21st). If you’re a Hunger Games fan like me then you have been anxiously awaiting the last (well part 1 of 2) of this trilogy. Can’t wait! “May the odds be ever in your favour.”

In fashion:
I’m loving the November covers this year…
1- Zoe Saldana, soon to be mom of twins, graces the cover of Elle (US) and looks amazing while doing so.
2- I am loving Anne Hathaway‘s lip colour choice on the cover of Elle (UK). That dark lip is perfect for Fall.
3- Gugu Mbatha-Raw covers Elle magazine’s Women In Hollywood issue and she is simply flawless with her bold lip and hair slicked back. Love the ring and ear jewelry too!
4- Adriana Lima covers VOGUE PARIS this month in this gorgeous bejewelled headpiece. I’m loving the smokey-all-over-face makeup too. It really makes her eyes pop!
5- You know I love me some Queen Latifah. She’s covering this month’s Essence issue and looks fearless in this gorgeous dress.

In entertainment:
1- Catch Usher on his UR Experience tour featuring August Alsina. This is sure to be an entertaining ‘experience’ filled with hot choreography and great vocals. I would love to see another one of his shows, he does not disappoint.

2- Stevie Wonder is also headlining his Songs in the Key of Life Performance Tour across North America this month. I’m sure this will be an amazing show as well. He is a legend!

Also, don’t forget to turn your clocks back this Sunday. It’s almost time for us to Fall Back! (I love having the opportunity to sleep an extra hour!)

Last but not least, let us remember and honour our heroes on 11.11.14 “Remembrance Day”. Lest we forget!

Happy November!
