SHOE-ORGASM - KIM KARDASHIAN + KANYE WEST"s "MONSTER"

YAAYY,FASHION PHOENIXES,

New Year,New Beginning..
I am really excited.. because i know 2011 would be a great year.!
Thought i'd end this year with a shoe-orgasm..!!! :D


Kim Kardashian's Shoe Game is dope.. thanks to her stylist,Monica Rose who always keeps that on Tab.
Being a stylist myself.. i have taken out the time to research Monica's styling signature and she loves her blacks,browns,nudes,greens and white. Really perfect for Kim Kardashian's complexion.

Here is a preview of the shoes Kim K. is wearing in the picture above.




This is a corroded brass Nicholas Kirkwood x Rodarte shoe,Which costs about $1,820 (N 273,000).
I love the heel and colour.. and the fact that it is brass,really tickles my fancy.



A girl can never go wrong in a pair of Louboutins.
i love the colour of this Christain Louboutin "MISS FORTUNE' platform slingbacks,which cost $1,195 (N 179250)
absolutely fabulous..!! <3



Oh-EMM-GEE..... I love these babies..!!!
These Prada suede Platform peep-toe Booties cost $850 (N127500)
I love the suede feel and the gold zipper.!
AMAZEBALLS..!!


I watched the "MONSTER" video by Kanye West yesterday and i fell in love with it.!
Felt like i was watching FashionTV and a model came strutting down the runway in my favourite trend.!
Kanye,being the fashion person jumped on the bandwagon and wore this camel jacket.!
I dont know the name of the designer and Google didnt help much!
Really amazing.


HAPPY NEW YEAR,LUVVIES!!!!
*hugs*

BEHIND THE SHOOT - MARIAM MOUSSA LOOKBOOK.

Hello Everyone,
Its a busy week,but i took out my time to blog. *HAPPY ME*
I did promise to show "BEHIND THE SHOOT" pictures of the LookBook shoot i did with a Designer,Mariam Moussa.
Her Designs were Uber-fabulous and Versatile,so we decided to shoot it in a Garden.
I was The Stylist and Obi Somto was the Photographer.
I'd be posting actual pictures of the lookbook later,But Enjoy These funny and cute pictures.

me styling the model.. fixing one or two things on the dress.
the model was so brave... being nude in front of the male photographers. :D
hehehe.. they re gonna kill me for putting this up.!

woosshh.!! pretty,isnt she?
pulling some stunt pose.! buhahaha.! lovely.!


It was so hot,I had to put on a scarf..!!!
i really dont get why i had to pose like this.. LMAO!!



We all took turns to jump up in the Air... hehe.









We met a couple in the garden and we took a picture of them..!!! :D




It was fun all through.. we looked like refugees and i must confess,Styling is no glamourous Job. Amidst the stress of running from one place to another,changing the models and sorting the accessories,we still had fun.

THE WHOLE CREW..!!!!




Toodles,Fashion Phoenixes.
hehehe.!
