Liya Kebede: From Model to Actress...

Liya Kebede has managed to transition from Vogue cover model to not only actress but also humanitarian. Her latest film, Desert Flower, draws attention to the frequently overlooked issue of female genital mutilation. Liya plays Waris Dirie in the autobiographical story (adapted from the book of the same name) of her meteoric rise in the modeling industry in the late 80s. Waris, who was circumcised at a young age and later fled her clan in Somalia for the promise of freedom in London, where she was discovered mopping floors at a McDonald’s. Liya is spellbinding in the harrowing tale of a woman's journey from nomad to model to champion of women’s rights.

J. Lo vs. J. Hud in Cholé...

This was a fashion faceoff post on, but what struck me about the photos is that Jennifer Hudson is SMALLER than Jennifer Lopez. WOW.

Janet Jackson to Add "Film Maker" to Her List of Credits...

Janet Jackson has signed a production deal with Lionsgate to develop and produce a feature film for the studio. Though Jackson has been an actress since before her music career began in 1982, this will be her first time working behind the scenes in movies. Jackson has a pre-existing relationship with Lionsgate, having appeared in three Tyler Perry pictures released by the studio.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter about the deal, Janet said:

I have been fortunate to work in the film industry, though not as much as I would like. I have a passion for storytelling, and have been doing it through my music for some time.

Jackson has not selected any projects to pursue just yet, but has said that she has an interest in film noir. It make take her a while to get started on a film project – she is currently in the middle of the American leg of her Number Ones: Up Close and Personal world tour, and is promoting a recently released memoir titled True You: A Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself.

Tyra Banks is Going to Harvard...

Tyra Banks is going back to school, and not just any school: The super-model-turned-mogul has been attending Harvard Business School since last year.

Going back to school has been a long time coming for Banks, who started modeling at age 17, just months before she was supposed to start at L.A.'s Loyola Marymount University.

"The day that I put college on hold because I got discovered to go to Paris and try this whole modeling thing ... was one of the most difficult decisions of my entire life," she said.

But Banks turned that opportunity into dreamlike success: In 2009, Forbes listed her as the highest paid woman in prime time, with an annual income of $30 million.

Now, Banks can clearly afford the steep tuition at Harvard's elite Owner/President Management Program, which requires students participate in intensive three-week sessions costing $31,000 a year for three years.

Sendai Japan
A ferocious tsunami spawned by one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded slammed Japan's eastern coast Friday, killing hundreds of people as it swept away boats, cars and homes while widespread fires burned out of control.

Short Shorts For Men. Happening This Summer.

Yves Saint Laurent Spring 2011 Collection
via NYMag:
When the Times' Grant Stoddard saw short-shorts on the spring menswear runways last June, he was overjoyed. A self-proclaimed "shorts traditionalist," he supports "a common-sense inseam" that allows for upper-leg airflow rather than flapping awkwardly around one's shin. But personal comfort aside, how well do a man's bare thighs go over in public? Men may be open to grooming their eyebrows and borrowing their girlfriend's jeans these days, but are they really ready to let their quadriceps breathe in front of total strangers?

Well according to the overwhelming response I got from THIS POST from a few years ago, the answer to that last question is YES.

On Trend With My $15 Oxford Lace Up Heels...

This is the Sinclair Oxford from Tuleste Market Shoes Spring 2011 collection. These will set you back $350 bucks.

I purchased these peep toe, lace up, two-toned Oxfords for $15 bucks on clearance from Payless ShoeSource© a couple weeks ago. They're surprisingly comfortable and I feel like they look refined enough to wear to the Royal Palace to meet the Queen of England. Because really. Everyone should have a pair of shoes that they could wear to meet the Queen of England.

Glee, The Music, Vol. 5 - Just released. Get it today! - Sponsored Post

Glee, The Music Volume 5 just released! Featuring Kiss, Landslide, & Somebody to Love. 
Get it TODAY on iTunes.

Volume 5 of Glee is now on iTunes. Featuring renditions of Kiss, Landslide, Fat Bottomed Girls, and Somebody to Love. When Glee aired its first episode in May 2009, the TV show only attracted a fraction of the viewers who tuned in for American Idol, which was shown on the same channel just one hour prior. The numbers looked bleak, but Billboard's music charts told a different story the following week, when the Glee version of Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" became a Top Five hit. Performed during the pilot by the castmates themselves, the song eventually sold over 700,000 downloads and paved the way for Glee's success — not only as a television show, but also as a chart-topping recording entity. The Journey continues...
