Hey LaPazions, you know I just told about RiRi taking the cosmetic industry by storm with launching her new fragrance ROUGE. Now we find out that Rihanna has been named/signed as the new face and muse of Parisian label Balmain! I mean in all honesty there is not too much that this young lady isn’t getting into now. From her Designer label River Island, TV show Styled to Rock,Cosmetics with MAC. Is there really anything that Rihanna isn’t doing?

I know this label wasn’t really mainstream or looked at by the rock/pop world, Balmain was known for dressing royalty and Hollywood mainstreamers, of that glamour era:pierre-balmain-designsNow they’re catering to a new bread and era, they have younger generation stepping into the light. I love that the ever so diversified photographer Olivier Rousteing brought out another side of Rihanna in this photo shoot and we love that she always brings her A-game:Rihanna Model for Balmainrihanna-balmain1 You know this comes right on the heels of Gaga doing her campaign for Versace, so these two ladies are bring their brand full-circle. Do your thing RiRi we cannot wait to see what’s her next venture!

What do you think of Rihanna being named the face of Balmain?

Article by: Sonya LaRae-Certified Image Consultant/Lifestyle Coach

Hey LaPazions, this past Wednesday, December 11, 2013 at The Beverly Hills Hotel the 22nd annual The Hollywood Reporter Women in Entertainment took place. Let me just tell you it was the who of who in attendance and everyone was doing their style best. I have to tell you I love covering the red carpet for events like this and to be able to really breakdown things for you all.

First up is the one and only Kim Kardashian, who rocked a yellow over coat and a satin citron yellow dress that complimented her curves. The new mommy to North looked great but, I have to tell you Kanye West is smarter than the momanger Kris Jenner (which was also in attendance). Why am I saying this regarding Mr. West? I’m saying this because, he is making Kim more relevant than just being the “Butt” seen across the world. This man is so cleaver yes he’s dumbed down her brand a bit and changed her some but, the thing is he is showing her that less is more and she is sexy even without trying so hard:Kim KardashianThis isn’t a great pose she is striking and I have to be honest and say I still don’t like the blonde hair but, she really looked great. Another Kardashian that looked fabulous at the event was Khloe and I loved her short white dress that she opted to wear. In light of the news that she filed for divorce from her husband Lamar Odom; Khloe looked radiant and happier than ever:Khloe KardashianI loved Naya Rivera and Big Sean they look so good together and she just knows how to rock fashion. Naya, always is red carpet ready and her clothing just compliments her shape. The newly engaged couple just always looks photo ready and sexy:Big Sean and Naya RiveraNaya RiveraAs I stated earlier Kris Jenner was in attendance and she wore this hounds’-tooth jacket that didn’t really flatter her at all. Matter of fact it made her look a little heavy and dowdy:Kris JennerOMG! Lady O (Oprah Winfrey) just arrived and she looks stunning in her shocking pink dress that is doing it for her. I love that Oprah is really embracing her curves and just living life fabulous. Her girl Gayle King is also here and she is doing her norm of understatement so well:Oprah WinfreyGayle KingWhy did Demi Lovato show up in her mothers dress? I mean in all honesty this is a young fashionista who just needs to embrace her curves, celebrate that she’s one of the hottest young talents on TV. Seriously fire your current Stylist and hire someone who is going to celebrate you and help you look your best:Demi Lovato It was also nice to see Mandy Moore out and about but, what exactly is she doing? I mean I haven’t seen her in any new movies, no new music nothing. I’d love to see her back in the studio making some music that is fitting to her life. If I wasn’t familiar with her I wouldn’t have recognized her at all:Mandy MooreMaria Shriver was on the carpet because she was going to be giving her friend Oprah Winfrey her award. She looked like Maria in her very basic dress, I love how she is very comfortable in her own skin:Maria ShriverThis was such a fabulous event and it was really nice to see some of the new stars mingling with older celebrities and really looking like they genuinely was enjoying themselves.

Article by: Sonya LaRae-Certified Image/Lifestyle Coach

Hey Fabulous LaPazions, so our girl Rihanna has launched another fragrance and this ad campaign just keeps her theme of nudity going. Rihanna, isn’t one to shy away from any kind of exhibition of her body as we all well know, so this campaign shouldn’t be of a big surprise for the newly crowed Icon. The fragrance is “ROGUE” with notes of jasmine, lemon blossom, cyclamen, rose, plum and suede over a base of musk, woods, patchouli, vanilla and amber. This is Rihanna’s fourth fragrance and this one is announced as being flirtatious and sensual; ergo her new ad campaign giving the exact same vibe.Rihanna Rouge

rihanna-rogue-fragranceYou can see the leggy singer is propped up against a wall with her feet up against the bottle of perfume. Rihanna gives you all kinds of sex appeal in this new ad campaign but, it’s not a far reach from any of her other campaigns in my personal opinion as you’ll see below in her other fragrance ads:o-RIHANNA-570o-RIHANNA-570-1o-RIHANNA-570-2Rihanna is no stranger to pushing the boundaries and this behind the senses look is giving you just a touch of what the ad will look like:I’m really looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the new campaign and would you have done anything different if you we’re producing this ad?

Simple Ways to Reinvent Your Look:

Article by: Sonya LaRae- Certified Image Consultant/Certified Lifestyle Coach

Email: Hey Sonya,

I feel that I’ve had the same old look for the past 5+ years, and I want to reinvent my look but, not break the bank. Sonya, can you please help? Signed Stuck in a Rut:

Hello Stuck in a Rut and Fabulous LaPazions, funny I get questions like this all the time from other readers and clients. Reinventing your look doesn’t always mean a major weight loss, cutting/coloring your hair or breaking the budget for and entirely new wardrobe. I’m going to give you a few simple steps that will help in reinventing your look so; get ready to take a few notes.

1. Style your hair differently:

Jen Aniston

You may have had the same hairstyle forever. Here is a simple little trick to try: If you wear your hair with a center part try parting your hair on a different side. You can do this just before you go to bed-Why then. This way you can train the hair to stay in place and here is the tip for getting your hair to lay flat: Use a little styling gel and hair tape to keep hair in place while you’re sleeping. Using hair tape will prevent you having that indention in your hair or that line from a head band or wrap. By just changing the direction of your hair, you will add a different symmetry to your face and can reinvent you look totally.

2. Accessorize, Accessorize:

Necklace

Doing this little trick can give a whole new look to your wardrobe. Adding accent pieces or how I like to call them statement pieces which are out of your norm can take your wardrobe from 0-60 in 2.3 seconds and, will make that old standard look brand new. Jewelry is and easy and fast way to give new definition to your look and if you’re not use to wearing big pieces that’s fine add a few small catchy pieces.

3. Change up your makeup:

Clinique Blushing

Ladies did you know that if you make small changes to your makeup you will reinvent your look. Prime example of this, I had a client who ONLY did dramatic looks to her eyes be it day or night that was her look. One afternoon she had a brunch to attend and asked me to give her a different look. I simply just changed up her makeup and instead of giving such a dramatic look to her eyes, I gave her a more natural look and a little pop of pink on her lips and she looked totally different and everyone at her brunch kept asking her what she did different to herself. Little things such as this can change and contour your face in a different way.

4. Nails become Accessories:

Nails too You

I know this sounds like a real reach but, if you only wear French/American manicure just giving your nails a pop of color will add a change to your hands and will make a subtle reinvention to your look. You can even try changing the shape of your nails.

5. Step your shoe game up:

Business Shoes3

Shoes can change a look drastically. How? If you only wear flats 24/7 try putting a kitten heel into your wardrobe. I say a kitten heel because, its not too dramatic and being that your foot isn’t use to being in a heel you would need to start gradual. Ladies who only wear heels/stilettoes  try adding a wedge or kitten heal to give a different definition to your leg and your closet.

6. Rejuvenate your skin:

Rejuvenate Healthy skin can change your look 100%-By simply keeping your skin hydrated(drinking enough water daily)and by exfoliating once a week you can give yourself a healthy glow. I’d like to give you a natural recipe for a good exfoliant:

3-4 Tbs. Cornmeal, 4 Tbs. Honey mix until the mixture is well blended and not too thick because it needs to be a little lose. Apply to face and neck in a circular motion and do not scrub too hard. Rinse with warm water pat face dry and use a good moisturizer to face and neck area.

These are a few simple little tricks to try. I hope you found this handy and if you have any style/Lifestyle questions please feel free to email us at: homeoffice_lapazimageing@yahoo.com

Red Carpet Review From AMA’s

american-music-awards2013-revealed

Editor-in-Chief: Sonya LaRae

Senior Editor: Leah Leslie

Photographs by: A. Brandenkowski- Lapazimageing Fashion Forward

Article by: Sonya LaRae-Certified Image Consultant/Certified Lifestyle Coach

Good Fabulous Monday LaPazions, I know that many of you was tuned in last night to the American Music Awards that Pitbull hosted. I have to tell you in all honesty I really didn’t care about the show at all because, how is it that they give Rihanna the Icon award? Really is she really reaching that panicle already in her short career; or is it that there really is a lack of honest talent out here to give the Icon award to? What about Patti LaBelle, Mariah Carry or Madonna?

With this being stated I’m not going to get all into the show I’m just going to speak on the red carpet looks, oh and by the way the Icon didn’t even walk the red carpet once again. I guess she’s just getting too big to do that or to grant interviews prior to her being on the show. I have to tell you when I saw Taylor Swift on the carpet rocking this short gold mini, I thought this girl is bringing fire to all the ex’s that she writes songs about and honey, if they are dating someone “Don’t Cha wish your girl was hot like me” in my best Pussycat Dolls voice seemed to roll of my tongue:Taylor SwiftI’m telling you all that Taylor transitioned from the girl next door to a true sexy, yet classy lady. Which by the way if you look at her she still seems good-too-shoe but, she’s dated enough people to fill a good sized handbag. LOL!!

I have to throw some shade on our next celeb who walked the red carpet. Why? Well, she sits on the panel of the Fashion Police, she criticizes the best of the best and; I’m sorry this look that Kelly Osbourne rocked last night was just the worst of the worst. She looked like some short lump on the carpet the dress was the exact same color as her hair, and it did nothing for her. I hope when she does her review she nominates herself for a worst dressed award and her partner in crime Giuliana Rancic. Rancic looked like she needed a meal and that hair on that long face PLEASE!!giuliana-rancickelly-osbourneWow, did you see the Kardashian-Jenner girls? I didn’t recognize them in all honesty, they really have stepped their style game up and Kylie and Kendall where showing they are no longer going to be in the background of their every so famous siblings any longer:kendall-kylie-jennerI’m sorry I’m back on the none fan train of Jennifer Hudson once again. I hated her look last night on the carpet she looked like she stepped on the front of her gown and ripped the dress and they just cut the section and sent her on her marry way. I don’t know she was getting it right for the last couple of red carpet events but, LaPazions she is back with a true miss in my personal opinion:Jennifer Hudson

I loved the Disney Starlet/Dancing with the Stars alum Zendaya Coleman. This white one shoulder pantsuit was fabulous. She looked age, Disney and red carpet appropriate!! I love how she is transitioning from the teen star to and amazing singer/dancer and role model for young women, I hope she stays this way and that she can transition as well as Taylor Swift has:Zandaya ColemanI didn’t know there was and older Cyrus girl other than Miley Cyrus but, her sister Brandi walked the red carpet and it seemed that Miley took a page out of her sisters book and toned her look down for the red carpet and didn’t give us her signature tongue pose(Thank God!):Brandi CyrusMiley CyrusI love how Ke$ha has changed her look up and is embracing her new and more glamorous look. She rocked this asymmetrical dress and gave made attitude on the carpet. I wasn’t impressed with the look for her performance but, honey she knocked this out the park:Ke$haWell Chili and T-Boz was out on the carpet and they had Lil Mama to come on stage as a special guest; as you know she played Left-Eye via the Vh1 special. I didn’t care for any of their looks and the green hair and the touch of green on Lil Mama’s gown was just a bit much. I guess she called herself channeling her inner Left-eye and being a little daring but, it was just a total miss for me:Lil MamaT-Boz and ChiliAnother person I didn’t recognize was Ciara, she really looked so different and I loved her gown the crochet and the nudity was very classy and she looked amazing. Rumors are that she is pregnant with fianc├ęs Futures child but; she really doesn’t look pregnant at all:CiaraJordan Sparks looked elegant and just sparkled in this sleeveless gown! I have to say Jordan, has truly kept her weight off and just is as gorgeous as she was when she appeared on American Idol. She looked happy as ever and we didn’t see her with her romantic love Jason but, we know they are doing very well and just shot a video for his new song “Will You Marry Me?”:Jordan SparksLady Gaga showed up on a horse guided by a few good men. You know she’s the new face of Versace and lord why did she wear the exact, well it looks like the exact gown from the ads? She’s channeling her inner Donatella:Lady GagaVersace Ad

These are just a few looks from the American Music Awards 2013 Red Carpet and it wasn’t very eventful but, neither was the show. To see everyone that walked the red carpet that wasn’t in this post make sure you like our Facebook page located at: http://www.facebook.com/lapazimageing
