Friday's Fabulous Flick

Quite of few proud mommies shared pictures of their princes and princesses with me from the Jack and Jill of America, Inc. Pittsburgh Chapter Presentation Ball held recently in downtown Pittsburgh. More than 400 guests attended to honor eleven teens who are high school juniors and seniors. Proceeds from the event benefited Neighborhood Academy.

Since I tend to post photo of ladies and girls, I thought that showing this flick of some handsome young men who be a nice change. 

Read more about this great event here and congrats to all of the proud parents!

Friday's Fabulous Flick

This week's flick features Alexis Clarke (left) with Ilianna Gill at the The Associates Council of The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Third Annual Luncheon in New York City recently.  The event raised more than $100,000 for the cancer center.

Ms. Clarke always looks effortlessly polished whenever she's photographed. I love the handbag and jacket!

Friday's Fabulous Flicks

I picked myself up from a devastating Super Bowl loss to post this week's flicks for you! One that demonstrates causal chic taken up a few notches and the other, a glamorous evening look. 


Actress Tamara Tunie (a McKeesport, Pennsylvania native) shows off her Steelers pride while attending HBO and the Cinema Society screening of Cormac McCarthy’s Sunset Limited  in New York City.

Socialite Susan Fales-Hill looks stylish is this expresso and black lace number at the Lycee Francais de New York 5th Anniversary Celebration. More than 900 guests attended the event which supports the non-profit private school based in New York City.

Super Bowl Sunday!

By now, you know what is for me..

 Black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow!  

Fab Fiance is such a good sport that he bought me a BRAND NEW HINES WARD jersey!! Can't wait to put it on!!

My poor man is a quasi-Eagles fan who stays frustrated with his team during the most of the season.

*A moment of silence please for Fab Fiance's team*

Ok now back to...black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow!!

I'll be talking trash on Twitter while rooting for my Steelers - so feel free to join in on the fun!

Jourdan Dunn - The New ‘Face’ of Burberry


Jourdan Dunn, a 20 year old British model, has been selected the new ‘face’ of Burberry.

Awww and right in time for Black History Month in America.  Ms. Dunn was featured in the highly touted all-Black issue of Italian Vogue of 2008. She has also appeared in cosmetic ads for YSL.

Chief Creative Officer of Burberry, Christopher Bailey said, "We wanted to create a dynamic campaign that reflects the diversity of our broad global consumer, revealing new British cast members each month, all with their own identity, embodying the different attitudes of the Burberry guy and girl.”

Standing ovations are in order for Burberry on their selection of Ms. Dunn. Time for me to run out and purchase a Burberry bag in celebration!
