Happy Almost 2015!
  I am finishing up my year end superlatives in the next two days, and couldn’t close out 2014 without taking a look at which outfits shook the sartorial world. From see though crystal embellished gowns to ravishing red caped beauts, quite a few ensembles caused us to turn our collective heads.
Let’s review!

Weekend Instagram Cuteness.

Happy Holidays, everyone!  Hope you all had an amazing Christmas as I’m sure our fave celebs have had. They all seem to be in hiding celebrating the holidays with family and loved ones. Nevertheless, a few were spied via Instagram while sporting some designer duds. But who was hot for the holidays and who should’ve asked Santa for a stylist?  Hmm…let’s take a look!

Angela Simmons’s Christmas in Brooklyn Fashion Treatz Cuzy Two Piece Cream Sweater Set.

Angela posed for the camera in a Cuzy Two Piece set from Fashion Treatz. I wasn’t able to find her set on their website, though I did find pictures of the set on their Instagram @FashionTreatz.

Kat Graham for GQ Turkey December 2014.

Melissa Forde’s Instagram Red One Piece Keva J Swimwear Monokini Cut Out Swimsuit.

Yep! I did a bit of research, and it seems Mel’s one piece is by Miami based designer Keva J. I couldn’t find the suit in her online store, though she did have the picture below on her IG timeline.

Elle Tarplin’s Bang Clutch.

  Elle Tarplin!
  I was able to check out her selection of chic clutches. I fell in love with her ‘Bang’ bag.

Fashion Drawings by Peneil Enchill.

I’ve already fallen fast in love with fashion drawings by Peneil Enchill!
The Ghanaian British  jumped onto most people’s radars with her inspiring ‘step into 2015′ sketch, which shows a beautiful, well heeled woman leaving hate, fake friends, negativity, and heartbreak behind, and bringing love, focus, and GOD into the New Year.

Antonio Berardi Pre-Fall 2015.

Antonio Berardi embarked on his very own distinct variation of menswear-inspired attire for Pre-Fall, giving traditionally masculine silhouettes an extravagant and supremely feminine spin.

Dej Loaf by Katie Friedman for Elle Magazine Winter 2014.

Tome White Cotton Sateen Cross Over Dress, $600;
Pologeorgis Fox Fur Hat, price upon request;
Morgenthal Frederics Lee Sunglasses, $395;
Sophia Webster Mila Shoes, $795;
 Detroit-based rapper Dej Loaf (real name: Deja Trimble) has gained fast and furious notoriety for her flow style. But I, of course, am also interested in her personal style—especially her apparent love for a good winter white. In her breakout single, “Try Me,” the 23-year-old musician raps, “Love wearing all black you should see my closet/Rock that all white when I’m feeling godly,” a claim she backed up by wearing a floor-length white mink coat during her debut on BET’s 106 and Park. At our photoshoot for Dej to sport some of the best winter white options on the market, I noticed she had a mostly male entourage accompanying her to media appearances, and asked her if she ever felt like she needed to act like “one of the guys.” “No, they have to be one of the girls,” the barely five feet tall Dej answered, smirking, while zipping herself into a sample. That kind of resolve is exactly what helped transform Dej Loaf from Chrysler janitor to Sony-Columbia signed artist in less than a year, and gives her the confidence to expertly pull off all these winter white looks.

Fashion Scoop: Kanye’s Closet Is Bigger Than Kim’s, Wet Seal To Go Bankrupt, and American Apparel’s Dov Charney Says He’s Homeless.

  • In news of “you know it’s a slow day when,” apparently in their new $30 million Bel Air mansion, Kanye West has laid claim to the largest closet at 15 feet long, leaving his wife with a 12-foot space. Amongst the other amenities in the mansion: a 23-foot dressing room, a master suite, lounge and bar area that they will both share and a spa bathroom for her with a washroom for him.BNorth will likely inhabit one of the five other bedrooms in the house. I’ll stop grating my teeth now. (The Mirror)

Ones to Watch: 6 Fashionistas to Look Out For in 2015.

Laura Govan was business meeting ready in a chic white suit and Giuseppi Zanotti gold ankle strap sandals. Hot!
I am most inspired by new designers and new fashionistas that explode onto the scene and there was a healthy helping of the latter this year. A few stylish ladies made their mark in the fashion world over the past twelve months and they will surely go on to do even bigger things in 2015. Not all of them are new to the red carpet, but they certainly made an unforgettable impression in 2014.
Here are some of my picks in no particular order:

Look for Less: Beyonce’s New York City Dinner Date Gucci Pink Fuchsia Stretch Flannel Blazer and Matching Pants.

Best of 2014: Designer of the Year.

Whew! 2014 was quite the year, huh? The world of fashion consistently set the bar higher for years to come while providing tons of inspiration for Fashion Bombshells/Bombers everywhere. Although a considerable amount of designers left their mark on the both the concrete runway and the Fashion Week catwalks, there were a few that particularly stood out more than others.
So, please join me as i review the top contenders for Teewhy-hive’s Designer of the Year!

Solange Knowles and Christopher Owens by Kim Jakobsen To for Elevenparis Spring 2015.

Fashion Scoop: Quvenzhané Wallis To Continue On In Armani Ads, Solange’s Hair Compared To A Dog, Your “Fake Fur” Might Be Real.

  • Last season Quvenzhané Wallis made headlines when she was cast as the face of Armani Junior.  Well today it has been announced that the 11 year-old will continue on in her role for spring. Add this to accolades that include being the youngest person ever to receive an Academy Award nomination for best actress, and we say she’s achieved more than some of us ever could dream of. (Fashion Week Daily)

Best of 2014: Model of the Year.

Jourdan Dunn & Naomi Campbell Burberry
With 2014 coming to a close, it’s pretty safe to say this year served as the catalyst for milestones for quite a few others with names other than Beyonce.  And because of fashion being such the revolving door that it is, it’s almost too easy to get caught up in the whirlwind.  No longer being the object of a designer’s inspiration and becoming the muse of fashion week past can happen at any second.  But there are a few models who’ve  managed to maintain stickability in this crazy world.  From runway shows to ad campaigns and editorials, these are the models (in no particular order) who outposed the rest to snag a nod in this year’s running of Model of the Year.

Take it or Leave it? Top Trends of 2014.

I admittedly steered clear of all shopping frenzies this weekend! My patience for the crowds has long vanished and I’ve grown super fond of (in love with) online shopping.
Nevertheless, let’s cut to the chase. The time has come to express how we really feel about all those trends that we saw time after time in 2014! Which looks will be ringing in the New Year with us and which should be banned from 2015?!

Yes Gawd: Sony Pictures Wanted Idris Elba To Play James Bond & So Do I!

One of the latest leaked e-mails in the Sony Pictures hack has confirmed whispers about a groundbreaking dream gig for Idris Elba.
There’s been buzz about Idris possibly playing James Bond for years, and the demand has been there ever since the idea first made its way around he Internet. His fans will tell that they are here for the idea of him playing 007!
Glossing over the fact that Idris would be the first Black man to play the iconic secret agent, could you imagine how suave he would be as James?! In an e-mail revealed by The Daily Beast, it seems that Sony Pictures chief Amy Pascal was onboard with the idea, writing, “Idris should be the next Bond.”
And if the current Bond Daniel Craig has anything to say, Idris will soon have an opportunity to take over the role. Daniel’s signed on for one more round as James in Spectre, which is due out next September. He told the Daily Beast in 2012, though, that he’s wanted to shake off the gig for years!
“I’ve been trying to get out of this from the very moment I got into it. But they won’t let me go, and I’ve agreed to do a couple more,” he stated. “Let’s see how this one does, because business is business, and if the sh*t goes down, I’ve got a contract that somebody will happily wipe their a*s with.”
There’s no word on whether Sony is still moving ahead with plans to book Idris as the next James, but they’ve got bigger fish to fry right now with the ongoing fallout from the studio leak. That’s why the Sony Pictures has brought professional fixer Judy Smith on board to help them out! reports that the studio hired the real-life inspiration for Olivia Pope to help guide Amy and studio on its next steps.
