Good Day Fabulous LaPazions! I love when we get your emails asking us about certain body issues, and asking us to do articles that may help you. Recently we’ve received several emails from our LaPazions’ asking us how they can hide their “Muffin Tops” and no we do not mean this type of muffin:BetterHere are a few emails that we received from our readers and followers of Lapazimageing Fashion Forward:

K. Duncan, Arizona: Hey Lapazimageing: It seems like nothing I do can get rid of my muffin top. I exercise, drink water, diet and still my muffin top stays with me. Prior to getting pregnant with my twins, I had a washboard stomach and now it just seems like this is a faded memory can you please help me camouflage it?

N. Whitten, California: Hello, I read and follow you all the time and I was hoping that maybe you could do a post regarding covering up or hiding your muffin top. I know for me and many others this is a major issue and we need your help. Thank you!!

S. Miller, New York: HELP!! MY MUFFIN TOP IS TAKING OVER MY LIFE AND I CANNOT TAKE IT!! PLEASE GIVE ADVICE ON HOW TO HIDE IT!!

We hear you all loud and clear and I’m very happy to help you with this issue. First and foremost a good diet and exercise can help in bringing this issue in control better; and you may still have a little muffin top issue even with the exercise and diet because of how your particular body-type maybe.

I cannot begin to tell you, that oversized and flowy tops aren’t the only solution or way to hide a little spillage of “Muffin top”. The trick is you want to create the illusion of a smooth line-Ladies first and foremost Please, PLease, PLEASE; get ride of those low-rise jeans (they’re your enemy)! Why? Only thing they’re doing for you is emphasizing your little bulge and drawing attention to the unspeakable area; plus they offer no support, cut you in the wrong area and keep you self-conscious of your flaw. Guy’s and Girl’s you’re going to have to try on a few pair to see what is the best fit and look for your particular body-type but, remember the jeans should have a little stretch or give to pull over easily and they will give you a smoother shape and offer you the support you need for the dreaded muffin top (P.S. I’m not talking about going to buy a pair of mom jeans either):high rise jeans Here is a little something I love to introduce to my clients “Jackets”. They are your best friend but, I mean step it up when it comes to your jackets. Don’t be afraid to give yourself a little pop-of-color, some structure and a fabulous motorcycle jacket can do just that. How so? Motorcycle jackets are very in trend and the silhouette is beautiful for someone trying to just cover a little bulge cause it lands at the natural waistline, they aren’t overwhelming and bulky and plus it’ll give you just a little edge to your everyday look:Motorcycle Jacket Let me start off by saying I’ve NEVER met a wrap dress I didn’t like no Love! This type of dress is the Houdini of Houdini dresses-It gives that little midsection the illusion (ergo the Houdini remark) of being slimmer. If you find a fabulous wrap dress that has animal print or a great vertical pattern buy it in every color cause you’ll look stunning and everyone will want to know what diet you’ve been on or what have you been doing to get so slim (Put that fab jacket with the dress to add another element or change it up some):Cross Russ dress and jacketThe hot weather is right up on us if we can get past this spring/winter mix we’ve been having. You’ll be hitting the beach maybe going to a few pool parties and I don’t want to see you covered up from head-to-toe!! I mean it! Try on a Fabulous asymmetrical neckline- ruched one-piece bathing suit. Your showing beautiful shoulder, which gives a little sex appeal and draws eyes upward. This balances out your body and then the ruching will conceal that tummy area (can you say HOT!):Spanx Swim SuitThis particular swimsuit is by: Spanx, Whittle Waistline One-Shoulder One Piece for $188.00 which is so worth it to look and feel amazing.

Now can you say Peplum, peplum, Peplum? This Gorgeous fashion trend is perfect and give such and amazing silhouette and it covers the little muffin top- You’ll forget you ever had an issue once you see yourself in this particular styled dress:Peplum dress The most amazing trick you need to learn is, to trick the eyes- Meaning grab a great A-line blouse, shell or tank with color blocking; it will give the perfect balance and glides right over that little mid-section. With this type of top it looks great paired with a sexy pencil skirt or a cute pair of straight legged pants and you’re off and running:Color block topsAnother little tip: Look at the color blocking the darker color is more prominent and the white is just enough to keep the eyes up. I hope this has helped you all and keep your questions coming by simply emailing them to us at: homeoffice_lapazimgeing@yahoo.com

Billboards-13 Blue Carpet Review:

Hey LaPazions you know that whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas but, when the Billboard Awards hits the city there is no-way to keep it quiet. The stars came to the MGM Grand on Sunday, and they walked the fabulous blue carpet and they turned it up all the way; from performances to what they wore and we have all the details for you!

First as you know we did a feature article on Jennifer Lopez and her Harper’s Bazaar shoot and now, JLo looks like a golden goddess on the blue carpet and like fire on the stage. Her performance was stunning and she looked amazing:JenniferLopez2013BillboardMusicAwardscANc1gn2uIfx_zps50a96414Jennifer performsJLoNow with this being stated we do have to make mention of Jennifer and Casper on the blue carpet and the body-language that kind of read okay so we maybe headed to a split cause it didn’t look very connected to us:jenniferlopez2_zpsc1dc11a9Then there was Miley Cyrus who looked totally Fabulous on the blue carpet and we know that she just did the spread for V-Magazine and was named Maxima Hot 100 and with the rumors of her and her fianc├ęs engagements being over-she walked the carpet looking Gorgeous:940x583New parents to baby Sebastian; Wiz and Amber Rose looked great on the carpet and we love how Amber brought her A-game as a new mom and turned her style out; that was fitting for a first time mother making her appearance after having a baby:wizamberrose_zps6e3055a6amberrose2_zps076d5b1fStop the presses!! Who in the world is this looking really Fabulous? Its none other then Ke$ha-I didn’t recognize her at first, she really has stepped her style up by like 100% and looks amazing:940x583-7940x583-8I think Mike Tyson needs to go back and hit the gym and get his body-back in shape and maybe hire a good stylist (LaPaz Image/Event Consultants) to help him wear something that would not look too small and so tight:tmam5_zps37ce165aKelly Rowland took her look to the next level-she’s been knocking out the box for awhile now and this time around is no different. Kelly, just knows what compliments her particular body-type and she just brings it each and every time. The color looks great on her skin and we love her hair-she is doing it:kellyrowland_zps18be9ca1Big winner of the night Taylor Swift has made a 360 with her style as well. You remember that she would only rock the “all American” girl look with the full-skirts and the very innocent appearance.  Now Taylor is stepping out on the carpet as a more mature young woman and looked great in this blue mini-dress and her signature red lips (side note: How many of you are aware that this very savvy business woman is her own manager? She makes all the calls with her career and her look):940x583-1940x583-2Did you see Nicki Minaj? She has really changed her very zany and very odd style and has taken it down several notches-I was thinking about has she sold herself out to become more mainstream and to make herself look “professional.” Is she trying to win over the mothers of America who just cannot stand her and improve her image or is this just another little ploy of hers? Either way you go she looked very nice in her red gown and gave a very raw performance with mentor and boss Lil Wayne:nickiminaj_zps955e80a6nickiminaj3_zps6e879cb5Chris Brown walked the blue carpet in a sweater and jeans and then he gave a great performance of Fine China which; he was a little horse but, he always delivers when it comes to her performances he’s always doing new and innovative moves and showing off his talents. One thing we was looking for was possibly he and on-again-and off-again girlfriend Rihanna might make and appearance during the billboard awards:ChrisBrown2013BillboardMusicAwardsArrivalsG_qTW-ksU2-x_zps485f5144Chris Brown performsHold the phone-we got to see Miguel prior to his performance and taking out one of the fans in the pit. We couldn’t believe that he landed on this young woman and they whisked her away without saying a thing. Miguel walked the blue carpet with his girlfriend and they looked great together but, she didn’t seem impressed with his antics:

tmam10_zpsab294523I loved seeing Christina Aguilera and Pitbull’s performance and how good she looked. Christina dropped a few lbs. and she rocked the stage and gave the audience all that they wanted:Pitbul and AgulierI was very excited to see Prince perform and just to have him grace any kind of award show is magical. Now let’s talk about his look-We know that his Royal Badness is always switching it up but, this time around the 70’s inspired look isn’t something he should have pulled back out. We love you Prince and we think you’re a musical genius but, this is such a no go:Prince performs We have so much more from the Billboard awards and if you’d like to see more of our coverage sign on and follow us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/lapazimageing

Kate Upton Takes Vogue:

GQ Cover

Editor-in-Chief: Sonya LaRae

Senior Editor: Leah Leslie

Photographs: Vogue & GQ

Article by: Sonya LaRae

 

Hey LaPazions, don’t panic Kate Upton isn’t taking over Vogue but, for the first time she is the cover model and featured inside the magazine; which is a huge accomplishment for this supermodel/actress. The first time we ever saw or even heard of Katherine “Kate” Upton was in 2011; when she did her first Sports Illustrated shoot and then was named rookie of the year for 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Kate’s star has been on the rise for awhile now and with her landing the cover and shoot for Vogue, shows that her star is rising and taking her in the direction of supermodel/I’m not going anywhere status. This is a major break for the sexy, curvaceous and voluptuous model that had been turned down for Victoria Secret’s runway show. I think what I love about Kate, is that she’s very comfortable and confident with her shape, looks and body-type. Kate also says: “She cannot change her bra size because they are natural” and we love that Vogue has seen to use a swimsuit model for the first time.img-kateuptoncover10_112604408931.jpg_article_gallery_slideshow_v2Kate is really known for her racy covers for GQ and Sports Illustrated but, we love how she still keeps the sex appeal but, kept it very classy and alluring for the Vogue shoot. They really captured her great looks and show off how versatile she can be: kate-upton-cover-05_101907456123.jpg_article_gallery_slideshow_v2kate-upton-cover-07_101908155762.jpg_article_gallery_slideshow_v2The fact that even though Kate is very sexy the posses are more discreet and appealing to more of Vogue’s fem population of readers and wouldn’t turn them off or against this super sexy swimsuit model:kate-upton-cover-01_101903993912.jpg_article_gallery_slideshow_v2kate-upton-cover-02_10190425914.jpg_article_gallery_slideshow_v2kate-upton-cover-04_101906704543.jpg_article_gallery_slideshow_v2kate-upton-cover-06_101907369160.jpg_article_gallery_slideshow_v2Kate’s fresh face (natural Makeup) is beautiful and we celebrate this gorgeous supermodel for staying true to herself and not allowing others to put her into a box or take her self-esteem!kate-upton-cover-03_101905437444.jpg_article_gallery_slideshow_v2kate-upton-cover-08_101909374235.jpg_article_gallery_slideshow_v2kate-upton-cover-09_101910451168.jpg_article_gallery_slideshow_v2Kate also admits that she is a Twitter junky and loves to tweet and share her life via the great app Vine, so if you want to really know more about her follow-her on Twitter and her vine channel.
