Who would Americans like to see play Jesus in the next movie?

As I was driving to school this morning, I was listening to The Kane Show on 99.5 like I do every morning. Something incredibly interesting caught my attention on this segment though. The Kane Show team began discussing a 60 Minutes poll asking “Who Would You Cast to Play Jesus?” taken by Vanity Fair, and it reveled something SHOCKING!

So, the poll is set up a little something like this, and here are your options:

Who would you cast to play Jesus?

  • Denzel Washington
  • Daniel Day-Lewis
  • Al Pacino
  • Ryan Gosling
  • Woody Allen
  • Philip Seymour Hoffman
  • None of them (vol.)

The Results are below on this chart:

The Winner is….DENZEL WASHINGTON! Who, if you notice, was the ONLY black man that was an option! Go Denzel!

“Twenty-one percent of Americans would cast Denzel Washington to play Jesus in the new film. Fourteen percent chose the great Daniel Day-Lewis and 13 percent chose his fellow Oscar winner Al Pacino. Eleven percent picked Ryan Gosling and 10 percent went with an unlikely choice Woody Allen. Only three percent went with Philip Seymour Hoffman and 15 percent said “none of the above.” They were probably satisfied with Jim Caviezel’s recent portrayal in the “Passion of the Christ” which grossed over $600 million worldwide.”

The Kane show team received a ton of texts with who the listeners would like to see. A few of the top picks were:

  • Morgan Freeman
  • Oprah
  • Will Smith

Who, are all coincidentally Black too!

Why am I so shocked you ask? Well, if you refer to my previous post from only TWO DAYS AGO, I was convinced that we were making backward strides as a society. I guess there with always be that balance of good and bad.

Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle DC Expo Coverage

I had a wondrously amazing adventure at the FBLDC expo! Unfortunately, due to the horrendous parking situation surrounding the Washington Convention Center, I was limited to only 45 minutes, but I certainly made the most of it. There was TONS to see.

Here’s my experience:

Miss Jay Alexander with one of the members of the My Bougie Baby team.

Jon David Salon was offering free hair styling sessions

Mini Models! These pint sized fashionistas BROUGHT IT on the Runway. Clothing from MyBougie Baby

So many Vendors, So little time

Even HAIR was for Sale.

Free Makeovers!!!

The Beautiful Ladies of Kitty Kat Kolors nail polish

So, That concludes my 45 minute adventure at the FBLDC 2012. I had so much fun and am looking forward to next year! Hopefully, I can prepare myself better in relation to parking so that I can stay a lot longer. I also plan to register next year as PRESS so that I am allowed better access to certain things so that I can present them back to my fashion loving blog supporters.

Tootles until next time…

Fashionable Causes: Hobo Couture Charity Photoshoot

I joined a meetup group called Fashionable Causes in Baltimore, and last Saturday they hosted a charity photoshoot. Anyone who attended donated $5.00 and the proceeds went to Children’s Cancer Research. It was a great event, in that I got a chance to take some awesome outfit of the day photos with Beatrice of HeavenlyGlow.net and I also got a chance to meet the group for the first time, unfortunately, I couldn’t stay until the photoshoot started because Beatrice and I had to head to DC for the Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle Expo, but I was still really glad that I went.

Here are my Outfit of the Day photos and a few other fun ones:

I’m wearing a black long sleeved top from H&M, Black Cargo Pants from Express, A leather vest with shearling lining from an estate sale, Assorted bracelets from my ArmCandy Post, Cyber lipstck from MAC, ALDO Multichain Necklace , ALDO Swarovski studs, CottonOn Sunglasses and Trouve’ Booties

Here are a few photos from the Fashionable Causes Meetup page. The following photos were not taken by me, nor do I claim ownership of them.

The Models are: Ariel, Sabrina, Salve and Victoria, Photographers are: AHB Photography, DLM Photography, and Michael T. Photography. Make-up: Roya

Top to Bottom: Victoria, Sabrina and Salve

Salve has KILLER bone structure and her eyes lure you in. She has such a beautiful uniqueness about her.

I Adore Ariel! She has this effortlessness about her posing. Her look is exotic and intriguing.

Ariel Again, I would have added all of the photos of this chick if I could. She’s Ah-May-Zing!

Next up is Victoria, I am LOVING this shot! The hair, the boots and the pose are EVERYTHING!

SABRINA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is high fashion model written all over this chick. I honestly think that she could waltz into any modeling agency in New York and get hired. Her look is s dark and quirky, there’s no way that it doesn’t work.

The group (Left to Right): Victoria, Sabrina (top middle), Ariel (Bottom middle) and Salve

Overall, I think that the photos came out GREAT! I do wish that they had a few stylists attend, just to clean up some of the looks and make them look a little more “from the runway”, but in a nutshell, I like! Can’t wait for the next event.

Thats all for now

Kim Kardashian: Look for Less- Classic Chic

Whether you love her or hate her, you still have to give it up to Kim K for her amazing style! I love the way that she constructs her ensembles. They always have this effortlessly chic aura about them. In honor of Kim K’s big 3-2, I’ve decided to feature the fashionista in a look for less post.

If you know me and are familiar with my style aesthetic, then you know that I am OBSESSED with classic looks/colors with a hint of HARSH, i.e. a seemingly simplistic ensemble with a spiked boot or a red lip are signatures for me. With that being said, I chose two of Kim K’s more recent looks that stuck out to me and are aligned with my style that would not be hard to replicate:

Taking her new Kitten to the Vet. I adore the ankle length pants.

Airport photo op. LOVING the Gold T-Strap Louboutins

Then I went on the hunt for items that are ALL UNDER $50.00 to recreate the looks: Enjoy!

Look for less: All White Everything

Satisfying your Accessory Sweet Tooth: Arm Candy [How to]

Everywhere you look, i’m sure you have noticed the colossal amount of bracelets, watches, chains and spikes adorning the arms of fashionistas. This gaudy arm fad is affectionally known to us as: ARM CANDY. Every time I go shopping, I am looking for cute, simplistic pieces that I can pile on to my arm candy family.

For those of you just tuning into the trend, I have decided to make this a “how-to” post to make it easier for you to build an arm party of your own by showing you how I construct mine.

First, here are a couple of variation of looks that I have done recently:

The one that we are going to work with in this post is the last photo.

The core of this arm candy ensemble is my Burberry Nova Check Watch : $395. However, any watch will do:

Then, I add my Spiked bracelets: $12.00 for both, which I just purchased from ALDO last week. I always place one above my watch and one below my watch.

Next, is my metal spiked bracelet: $7.99, which I purchased from “Fancy Q” in Arundel Mills mall. It’s starting to fade, but I can’t let it go. I had a gold one also, but Eura stole it. Anyway, I put this one at the very front.

Last, but not least, my braided J.Crew bracelet: $22.00. I always place her somewhere near the front.

Here’s a reminder of the final product:

That’s it! It’s so easy and really fun to see what kinds of combinations you can come up with. Also, if you don’t have a watch, you can use a statement bracelet as your core piece:

In my case, we will take my new chunky chain link bracelet from Express: $24.50

Just add a few of the previous pieces and it could turn out like this:

Or this:

Don’t know where to start, not a problem! Here is a list of great places that can help you start building your arm wardrobe across all price points:

Marc by Marc Jacobs Collection

Arm Candy Shoppe

Etsy: Arm Candy Search

Fancy Me Candy

Aldo Shoes: Bracelets

J.Crew: Bracelets

Express: Buy One Get One 1/2 off Promotion

That’s all for now, have an awesome time building your own Candy Shops.
