Christina Hendricks Rocks the Emmy Red Carpet

Posted in Beauty, Hollywood on August 31, 2010 by miaamber

Mad Men star Christina Hendricks wowed on the red carpet in back to back stunners at both the Creative Arts Emmys and the Primetime Emmys.

Last week  Hendricks wore this Christian Siriano stunner to the Creative Arts Emmys…

And last night she wore this Zac Posen creation to the Prime Time Emmy Awards…

I love her red carpet risks but I’m still not sure exactly how I feel about the Zac Posen gown.  I love the design I think I wish it was a different color. 

What do you think?

The Season 11 cast of Dancing With the Stars was announced tonight and once again their casting choices have me baffled.

In the past the cast has included seasoned pop-stars known for their dancing abilities or athletes who use dance as a basis for their training but this season’s cast includes a woman who made a career out of her ability to win our hearts on the dance floor!

Jennifer Grey from Dirty Dancing is a contestant on DWTS! Go figure.  No one else seems to be bothered by it so I’ll let it go.

Who’s your pick for Season 11 champ?  I’m going to go with Kyle Massey from That’s So Raven. I like that show.  Don’t judge me. 



Jessica Simpson Keeps it Real

Posted in Curvy News, Get Fit Not Thin, Loves It! on August 26, 2010 by miaamber

Pop Star and Designer Jessica Simpson has decided to keep it real for the upcoming NY Fashion Week and use “Normal” models. 

Here’s the word on the street:

“Jessica Simpson is to use real women to model her fashion collection. The curvy singer – who has faced criticism for her weight in the past – is reportedly set to turn her back on the trend of using skinny models in her New York Fashion Week show in September, and instead has decided to use real women to showcase her clothing collection.

An insider told Life and Style magazine: “Jessica Simpson plans to unveil her latest collection for the media at New York Fashion Week in September, but there’s a twist. Instead of using super-skinny models to showcase her designs, Jessica has decided to send her best friends – real women in real sizes – down the aisle.”


The curvy revolution keeps on trucking!!

Mad Men star and resident curvy girl Christina Hendrick’s has been named the new face of London Fog

Some are annoyed that Christina looks a lot less curvy due to photoshop but I still think she looks haute!

Congrats to CH as well for her Mad Men inspired Barbie

Very cool indeed!



KLS…Baby FAT?!

Posted in Get Fit Not Thin, News, Pop Culture on August 26, 2010 by miaamber

If you know me, you’re well aware of my three BFFIMH (Best Friends Forever In My Head…)  Beyonce, Tyra and Kimora Lee Simmons. 

Well color me surprised when I woke up to a twitter announcement from Kimora in which she stated that she was no longer with Baby Phat! WHAT?! Makes no sense to me.  I knew she’d sold the company but decided to stay on to mold the brand. 

I mean, she created the company, how do you leave a company that you created AND that you are the face, voice and life of?

The New York Post may have the answer– they say she was FIRED!!

Kimora Lee Simmons was “unceremoniously dumped” from Baby Phat, sources close to the ex-model said of her abrupt exit from the clothing company she founded with ex-husband Russell Simmons. Sources said Simmons is mulling a possible lawsuit against owner Kellwood. “She was blindsided that Kellwood fired everyone,” said one. But another Baby Phat insider it could have been a way to slash costs: “Kimora was going over-budget. She’d pay herself a fee to be in the ads, plus she paid her children fees to appear in ads. It costs thousands of dollars to airbrush her because she’s a size 10. Plus, they spent a ton of money on body doubles. They would shoot another model in the clothes, and take Kimora’s head and put in on her body.” Kellwood had no comment.


 Evidence that this may be true?  Last year the web was abuzz because of the obvious photoshop wizardry/bait and switch done with Kimora’s body and model Daria Werbowy’s for KLS’ new Dare Me fragrance.

If she was let go because of her size then shame on Kellwood.

KLS is a size 10 and as a Wife, Mom, Mogul, Model, Author, TV Personality & Designer, she’s also a PERFECT 10!
