In September, I attended the launch of The Limited collection inspired by the hit TV series, “Scandal.”
At that event, held at the Fashion Center at Pentagon City, I met Lyn Paolo and Elliot Staples, two brains behind the collection and fitted one of my favorite dresses from the line–the tulip skirt sheath dress.
Fast forward to December, during my trip to Barbados, where I had a little photoshoot fun with the look.

For two seasons, Shonda Rhimes has hooked us with heart-stopping, cliff-hanging episodes on the ABC hit series, Scandal.
But there’s another woman behind the scenes, who has made me more of a Gladiator.
MTV Buzzworthy called it B’Night. That’s exactly what it was for me.
150 minutes of my life I will never get back, spent watching Beyoncé on Saturday night prime-time TV. And I enjoyed every second of it.
Until last night, the inner workings of Beyoncé’s life were pretty much a mystery. Fans, for so many years, have had to put the pieces together, based on what the media fed them–and what little Mrs. Carter would let them know.
That’s why “Oprah’s Next Chapter” on OWN to “Life Is But A Dream” on HBO were so monumental. The entertainer, mother and fashion icon the world has fallen in love with, finally fed our curiosity.
The BET AWARDS 12 was all kinds of wonderful at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles last evening.
The star-studded show featured Samuel L. Jackson as host and a lineup of outstanding nominees, including Beyonce, Kanye West, Rihanna, Mary J. Blige, Drake, Trey Songz, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown and Serena Williams. Of course, there was also the Whitney Tribute, which I’m sure got plenty a makeup look in the Auditorium smudged.
As usual, fashion emerged as one of the big highlights, and there are a couple observations I can’t help but mention.

America’s Next Top Model is returning for a 19th Cycle, with unprecedented changes.
For the first time ever, the public will now be able to vote for their favorite contestants, determining who stays and who gets booted from the contest. The results will help Tyra and her panel of judges decide who will be eliminated.

Another curtain has fallen on American Idol, and another male has won the coveted top spot.
Although my musical love for Phillip Phillips runs deep and wide, there’s no denying that although Jessica Sanchez is runner-up on the music side of things, she hands-down won season 11 with a style ID that cannot be easily forged.
From over-the-top accessories to striking silhouettes, the 16-year-old showed up her fellow contestants in statement-making pieces week after week.

“Too Big to Miss” is how BET is labeling BET Awards 12, scheduled for July 1, 2012 at Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
And if the list of nominees and performers is anything to go by, we should be in for an eventful red carpet in the style department, too.
