I love make-up. I always say that I only wear make-up to cover up my acne and that I'd stop once it goes away but I just can't stop! It's fun for me and it gives me an extra boost of confidence. I do not depend on my make-up, though. I understand that it is there to enhance what I already have and to help me not hurt me. I always tell myself as I'm doing my make-up, "a little bit goes a long way!"

"On Wednesdays, we wear pink!"

Bomb shots of Lindsay Lohan taken by Terry Richardson. This is why I love her. & Terri, he sure knows how to photograph a girl. Have you seen the recent shots he took of Britney? BANG'N. I also really enjoyed his work with Big Bang. I can only dream that one day he'll shoot me. I love his style of photography. Plain back drop to accentuate his subject(s) and their provocative styling. Enjoy!

Look at her werq those Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte heels in the last shot! I guess she's graduated from army pants and flip flops.

Big Bang of Colors

If you know me personally, it's no surprise to you that I am in love with Korean Pop music and culture. My personal favorites would have to be Big Bang and 2NE1, both of which have new videos out with killer styling. Check 'em out for yourself!

First of all, I would like to say that the 'Lollipop' music videos are actually commercials for a phone (if you couldn't tell). 2NE1 actually debuted themselves as a group, not their first single, with Big Bang in the first 'Lollipop' MV last year. They are under the same record company, YG.

The first MV for 'Lollipop' was an instant hit in Korea and even caught the attention of notorious celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton. I instantly fell in love with the song, the clothes, the fierce bitches, and of course, SeungRi!

'Lollipop Part 1'

'Lollipop Part 2'

There is definitely not a lack of color in the 'Lollipop' MV's. NEON. FLUORESCENT. BRIGHT. ANTI MONOCHROMATIC. LAYERS. FLAMBOYANT. URBAN. FUN. All words I would use to describe the styling. G-Dragon is also one of my favorite gender benders and fashion icons. I've also obsessed about Dara's hair in part 1 as well...

Unfortunately, 2NE1 did not pair up with Big Bang for the 'Lollipop Part 2', instead they released their own video for their new single 'Try to Follow Me' which was released on the same day as Lady Gaga's 'Telephone'.

Ironically, their video has an exceptional mix of Lady Gaga and playfulness with a touch of Beyonce's 'Video Phone'. Tell me what you think! I am loving these looks in particular.

Also, CL's leopard print outfit is bananas! I would wear almost all of the following trends you've seen in the videos this year. If you keep up with Fashion Week and shows this season you know that neon and fluorescent colours the up and coming. Refer to Balenciaga, YSL, Versace, and Manish Arora. Splashes of bright, eye-catching colours gave these collections a pop. Now that it's Spring, and shortly soon after will be summer, don't be scared to bust out your flashy, colour riched pieces. If you live in extremely hot climates like myself, you know that wearing all black or dark colors during summer is a rookie mistake; so brights are your best friend. Just avoid looking like a traffic cone, or the fashion police just might have to take you downtown.

K-kina Busy

UPDATE: Here's the video!

Stills from the upcoming Lady Gaga 'Telephone' video featuring Beyonce premiering Thursday night. Get excited!

From the looks of the stills, I'm seeing strong, patriotic, American working girls who are fighting against bugaboos who just won't stop callin',and the recession, with their glamorized, urban couture outfits accessorized everyday objects. Gaga's looks seem to be on the edgier, darker spectrum while Beyonce gets glammed out in girlie gems. I'm seeing a Thelma and Louise theme going on here. No?

Marc, love.

So I've been out of town for a couple days so I haven't had time, or my computer, to work on anything. I can't wait to show you guys what I got this past weekend in Houston. I'll probably make a vlog video about my trip and what I've been up to. Here's something for you guys in the meantime! Marc & Lorenzo

The hottest couple on the planet. Hands down. Lorenzo is so much better then Jason Preston.
You can have your cake and eat it too, Marc! You definitely deserve it.

Front Row

I've got to say, I love MK&A as much as the next gay, but I find myself loving them more and more every day. The lovable pint-sized twins whom we grew up with, debuted their show at New York Fashion Week this season with their high-end line, The Row. Olsens also have another line called Elizabeth&James - named after their siblings.

I love this collection to pieces! Literally. I would wear every piece in this collection. You can definitely see the Olsens' style in the 20 looks they girls showed, very Ashley-esque with a touch of Mary-Kates grunge. Mary-Kate and Ashley both wanted this collection to straight to the point and anonymously chic - which is the perfect way to sum up The Row Fall 2010.

I love the wide bell shaped bottoms on the jackets and dress, much like the ones seen at Marc Jacobs. Those elbow length leather gloves, thin tie belt and blue python dress are my favorites. I will be keeping my eye out for similar, more affordable items, asap! I've also been talking a lot about staple pieces and investing in them. This collection is a compilation of dark staple pieces! The Olsens definitely get where I'm coming from! Or rather.. their style has definitely influenced me a great deal. I'm gonna have to go with the second one, hah! Needless to say, staple pieces made from luxurious fabrics paired with luxe python and leather. Minimal, for sure. I can't wait to see future collections from my favorite celebrity designers.
