OK. I patiently waited to see if this new Rihanna hair trend was going to disappear after the VMAs.

But it didn’t.

Recently, the star has been rocking a curly redhead do, even using it as a shield from the paps.

Keep reading to see how Rih-Rih has been taking her scarlet shenanigans to new lengths.

Trend Alert :: Celebrities Embrace Lace

When trend forecasts mentioned lace as a prominent feature in Spring/Summer 2010 fashion, I wasn’t sure what to expect.

But having been able to take a closer look at the trend recently, I’m pretty sure now that it’s one I’ll let pass me by.

There are a few celebrities, however, who apparently don’t feel quite the same way.

Check out these pics of stars who are embracing lace–on the red carpet, while out and about, and on stage.

Love It or Leave It :: Personalized Louis Vuitton Handbags

I’ve seen the lengths people go to just to become the proud and accomplished owners of Louis Vuitton handbags. Stories of a month-long granola bar diet, or taking public transportation instead of spending on fuel, come to mind.

But I’m wondering how the die-hard Louis V fans will feel about “Mon Monogram.” It’s a new personalization service from the bag and luggage makers, who say they can customize your selected purchase within six to eight weeks.

I tried it and was able to add my own variation of stripes and initials. Maybe it was my choice of colors, or placement of my initials but for some reason, I didn’t like the outcome very much (see below).


The verdict? I’ll leave the personalization to people who already own a closet full of Louis Vuitton and stick with the plain old classic pieces.  Because at nearly $1,000 a pop, I can’t see how it’s worth the risk.

Try the personalization tool for yourself.

Love It or Leave It? Sonia Rykiel pour H&M

When part two of Sonia Rykiel’s collaboration with H&M hits stores Sunday, it will be all knitwear.

Building on the recent Rykiel lingerie collection, this newest offering packs a punch of brilliant color and is inspired by Parisian joie de vivre, according to H&M.

The collection also helps a worldwide cause with its Sonia Rykiel pour H&M bag. Part of the proceeds from each sale will go directly to UNICEF’s “All for Children” project.
