It seems that our favorite Afrolista, Solange Knowles has now jetted off to Milano to attend the shows at MFW. She stunned the crowds at Roberto Cavalli's, Just Cavalli S/S 2013 RTW Show.

While many of the official photos from Jay Z's and Beyoncé's recently held political fundraiser for President Obama at Jay Z's 40/40 Club have yet to be published, Beyoncé released a few on her blog for all the world to see. The Carter's reportedly raised 4 Million Dollars for President Obama's reelection at their $40, 000 a plate fundraiser. 

Of course you know I couldn't leave out the fabulous sister of the Queen, Miss Solange Knowles looking "flyy" as usual in all white as she arrives to the event .

I most definitely love this quote from Viola.

My Favorite Looks From The Concrete Catwalks @ NYFW 2013 RTW

My favorite looks from the concrete catwalk during New York Fashion Week 2013 RTW: 

Herieth Paul on the streets of NYC.
New York is one of the worlds fashion capitals when it comes to individual style and beauty and all the best looks first start on the streets before they get on the designer catwalks. Women of all backgrounds and ethnicity's were rocking bold patterns and colors. Long skirts and short dresses in shear fabrics and embellishments.

Notice me. Look at my style. Looks that don't cry for attention will always catch the photographers eye. Shoes that were made for walking and some that were just not fit to even walk in and yet the wearers point-of-view came through. Denim in all kinds of hues and styles and piles of accessories that served as a constant inspiration to designers for the coming seasons. In reality, I take my cues from the street when it comes to interpreting a look that I like and celebrity style has never played a part in it.

A shift dress hides a multitude of sins.

Joan Smalls for Harper's Bazaar UK

When Joan Smalls' image flashed before my Tumblr dashboard I was all giddy with excitement thinking that I couldn't wait until my copy arrived in the mail since Harper's Bazaar is the only fashion magazine that I subscribe to. A woman has to wear her glasses more often after staring at a computer at work and at home all day because my eyes deceived me.

*the sound of screeching tires* Wrong country...this issue is for Harper's Bazaar UK and not the American version of Harper's Bazaar. Either way it's a stunning cover and I'm sure there's an equally stunning photo editorial of the Number One model in the world inside.

I wonder which one my local bookstore will stock, the one with Laetitia Casta or Joan Smalls???

Rock Mom Chronicles: Solange Knowles @ TIBI SS 2013 RTW NYFW

I've got tons of great shots from the NYFW 2013 RTW collections, but nothing could be more cuter than seeing Solange Knowles and her son, Julez at the TIBI SS 2013 show having fun. Of course we know that she rocked in whatever it was she wore, but it was the fun those two had before the camera which showed through.
I'd do this to the paparazzi every time they pointed a camera in my face.

Le Look Du Jour: Solange Knowles At FNO 2012

Solange on the ones and twos at the Coach Boutique in NYC.

Solange Knowles at the Coach Event

FNO 2012 reminded me of Trick-or-Treat/Halloween last night with the crowds that converged on NYC's shopping districts and in many major cities in the world for the fourth annual event. We have our own FNO event, but it's nothing compared to NYC's. It seems like everyone came out for the free drinks, food and other goodies without getting in much shopping other than getting a glimpse here and there of their favorite celebrities and fashion icons.

Solange DJ'ed the Coach Boutique, DVF's party, and partied hard at O.C. And just by looking at the photos I'm exhausted and I wonder how does she do it?

One To Watch: Actress Kelly McCreary of Emily Owens, M.D.

Here's a new actress that we'll see this fall and her name is Kelly McCreary.  McCreary is cast as the character Dr. Tyra Granger on the new show.

Kelly, along with actress Aja Naomi King will be featured on The CW series Emily Owens, M.D. Emily Owens, M.D. premieres Tuesday, Oct. 16 on the network.

Kelly has played on Broadway and has had several roles on television and in movies. Kudos to both ladies on their new roles in an era where negativity is now the norm. It's great to see two women playing professional roles on television for a change which is also our reality.

Currently Loving: Destination Iman

Check out Iman’s website-Destination Iman.Click on the photo to learn more.

I follow Rachel Zoe on Tumblr and this info rolled through my dashboard so I had to click and check it out. i Likey!

Fashion icon and mogul Iman has launched her own online magazine, Destination Iman, where we can get a few pointers in the latest beauty products and style that her brand and other brands have to offer the stylish woman.

Have I finally found something that speaks to me---the woman over 40 who is sophisticated, aware, fabulous and has her own identity? While other magazines, either print or digital start off catering to the established and mature women, they quickly abandon us once we build up their brands and revenues in favor of a more youthful market thus rendering us invisible and insignificant.

Can a woman find one that can thrive and coexist with her younger peers on a respectable level?? Anyway, I love what I see thus far and will bookmark her site.

You can follow Destination Iman or connect with Iman at the following places: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Tumblr.
