Mary J. Blige is in the news again for another glam venture.

The singer will develop Melodies by MJB, a signature line of sunglasses. Set for a Fall 2010 debut, the first Melodies by MJB collection will feature four styles with a total of 20 color options.

According to the official release announcing the project, each unique style will represent a specific facet of Mary’s life.

A second, more extensive collection for Melodies by MJB will launch in Spring 2011.

No word on where we can buy them yet, but Orange 21, the company behind the project, says select retail partners for Melodies by MJB will be announced in the near future.

Who Wore What :: Met Gala 2010

The Met Gala reawakened my fashion senses tonight.

Formally known as the Costume Institute Gala Benefit, the event saw what seemed like every celebrity known to man streaming through The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Trend-wise, the red carpet screamed nude and ethereal. Black seemed totally unpopular, while bold colors like that of Thandie Newton’s gown were striking.

The event celebrates the opening of the ‘American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity’ exhibition at the Museum.

Mary J. Blige Presents “My Life”

[picapp align=”none” wrap=”false” link=”term=mary+j.+blige&iid=8165004″ src=”c/c/2/5/3rd_Annual_Essence_d15a.jpg?adImageId=12716332&imageId=8165004″ width=”234″ height=”349″ /]

Seems everyone is the face of a fragrance these days. This time around it’s Mary J. Blige  for Carol’s Daughter, with a fragrance that was inspired by her life experiences, which we’ve heard about on her “My Life” album.

The new fragrance, also called “My Life,” launches exclusively on HSN and will be available July 31, 2010.

“My Life” is a first from Mary J. Blige and the first celebrity fragrance to be developed by Carol’s Daughter.

As with anything associated with MJB these days, there’s a good-news element. A portion of the proceeds of the fragrance benefits the Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now (FFAWN).  FFAWN was created by Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute (Chairman & Lead Investor at Carol’s Daughter) to help women gain the confidence and skills they need to pursue and realize their goals and dreams.
