Diva Style


Good news mes amis, I started freelancing yesterday at a major midtown ad agency.
Over the weekend, we enjoyed watching the Emmys. I loved seeing Gossip Girl Blake Lively dressed in a scarlet dress by Versace with a plunging neckline. The dress really doesn't show up so well here on the red carpet but when she came out on the stage during the program she really looked pretty geat. Her sleek hair was in a long blonde braid, and when she opens her mouth she has a deep dusky voice; this girl's got it going on.


The dress reminded me of the Versace frock which really put Jennifer Lopez on the fashion map. That Donatella Versace knows her way around a plunging neckline.


We also caught VH1 Divas which was quite entertaining. While I love watching high fashion on the red carpet, this song below called "Video," sung by Adele and India.Arie, offers the opposite take on Rachel-Zoe-like celebrity styling:
"I'm not your average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
I know my creator didn't make no mistakes on me
My feet my thighs my lips my eyes I'm loving what I see."
Now that's beautiful.

I just like watching this video.

Dear Bart,

I dropped by your blog the other day and read the lovely post about 9/11. Over the past few days, I've wondered how you were doing. I'm so glad to hear you found work! Less stress I hope? Best wishes!
