This look is perfect for a night out on the town or grabbing dinner with a friend.
Beyonce pulled off this effortless ensemble as she headed into the Arts Club in London. The singer wore a black and white satin striped dress from Top Shop and a pair of black Kurt Geiger Anja pumps. The dress is pretty affordable, retailing at $140.00. Now the shoes on the other hand. Chileeee! If your wallets are fat enough you’re looking to spend $305.00 for the designer pumps.
But don’t worry, we found a more affordable shoe for you. (more…)
Shirley Temple who?
Singer, songwriter Kelis isn’t crying over spoiled milk these days. Instead she’s rocking curly hair and bright pink tu-tu’s inside of vintage gold bath tubs and she’s doing it well.
Two years ago her ex-husband Nas released an album (Life Is Good) that was dedicated to Kelis and their former marriage. Although the divorce didn’t end as pretty as some would expect, Kelis has moved on with her life and aside from being a mother, she’s working on an album and she’s currently the host of her own cooking show. She recently spoke out on the divorce:
I’ve been divorced for almost five years; it’s over, I’m over it. But what I would say is that last year I was made more aware of it because my ex-husband decided to talk about stuff that I hadn’t shared with the world. He slipped my wedding dress on to his album cover [2012's Life Is Good], so now I have to talk about it! I had no idea it was happening, I was like, ‘What the…?’ But it didn’t affect my life. I’m not living that life now. I’m super-content and at peace.
Good for you girlfriend!
The Coveteur recently had the pleasure of shooting Kelis in her vintage musuem-like home. Catch the flicks below.
When a #WCW (Women Crush Wednesday) post goes right!
It’s tough for most men to admit to the mistakes they’ve made but yesterday Dwyane Wade was an exception. A couple months back folks were shocked when Dwyane Wade publicly announced that he had fathered a child outside of his relationship with Gabby. The announcement came just days after he proposed to the actress.
Yesterday the NBA player got sentimental in his #WCW post directed at Gabby. He admitted that he almost lost Gabby because of the mistakes he’s made in the past and he hopes to spend the rest of his life with her. (more…)
Or get dumped!
More folks than others are questioning the relationship status between Chris Brown and his on and off model girlfriend Karrueche. Where did this come from? Chile out of the night blue sky, smh.
About a week ago Karrueche posted the above photo on her Instagram, holding up a post it that read TREAT YOUR GIRL RIGHT. But it wasn’t until last night that folks begin to speculate. The model took to her Twitter to announce that she wasn’t dating anyone:
Not dating anyone stop w the bs. Please and Thank you.
But the bigger question is did she and Chris ever get back together officially? Last year when Chris and Rihanna rekindled their old flames he admitted to loving both girls but didn’t want to be in a relationship. So Chris and Karrueche probably are just dating without a title. Unless of course the recent rumors about he and Rihanna are true. (more…)

You may or may not remember when Beyonce’s wig was snatched up by a fan while performing some time last year. Somehow or another the singer just can’t escape the wiggery!
Last night while Bey was singing her heart out to her XO lyrics, a nearby fan threw a wig at her. Bey looked as if she wanted to keep it moving but she just couldn’t resist turning around and saying:
You got me snatching wigs, snatching wigs
Ya’ll know Bey wigs be snatched, so it was only right that she let the people know. Ha!

Chris Brown is back and ready to work. The R&B star uploaded a picture on Instagram yesterday with 20-year-old pop singer Ariana Grande. The picture showed the two artists rehearsing in a dance studio, captioned “Coming Soon”.
Allegedly, Breezy is working on a major duet with Ariana Grande. I guess fans will have to stay tuned for the possible upcoming collaboration. We’re glad to see Chris Brown back on the music scene after his departure from rehab.
Last week Meek Mill announced that the two are cooking up some heat in the studio as well. He posted a pic of Chris’ new Instagram page with the caption: (more…)
Recently, some of our favorite power women gathered to the 2014 Essence’s Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon. From Lupita Nyong’o to Tamera Mowry, these women were simply stunning in their vibrant colored outfits. Lupita’s acceptance speech was one of the highlights of the star studded event. Reportedly, invited guest were teary eyed as the humble actress accepted the award for Breakthrough Performance of the Year. During her speech, Lupita talked about her past struggles with self image, focusing on her complexion.
I remember a time when I too felt un-beautiful. I put on the TV and only saw pale skin I got teased and taunted about my night-shaded skin. And my one prayer to God, the miracle worker, was that I would wake up lighter-skinned.
,the actress confessed.
Towards the end of her speech, Lupita talks about being inspired by Alek Wek, a celebrated model who had a complexion similar to hers. Lupita closed her speech by saying,
…And my mother again would say to me you can’t eat beauty, it doesn’t feed you and these words plagued and bothered me; I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume, it was something that I just had to be.
I think we can all agree that Lupita Nyong’o is gorgeous! Check out all of the women who were honored at the Essence’s Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon. (more…)

This is the first time we’ve seen Marley Rae McCall since the time she was born. Just last night model Eva Marcille gave us another glimpse of what baby Marley looks like at just one month old. Marley was dressed in a beautiful peach floral gown as she gazed into her mommy’s eyes.
When Marley isn’t bonding with her mommy, she’s more than likely spending time with her dad Kevin McCall who refers to her as his little china doll.
Catch a photo of Kevin and Marley below. (more…)
