The gorgeous Rihanna appears in September’s Essence magazine truly looking like a fashion Icon. She has matured into a style of her own and I’ll be damned if we aren’t loving it.. Peep the flicks below:

If this is the look of a “Good Girl Gone Bad”, then I say good riddens… that’s a bad &%#@!. 🙂

“I got this model chick that don’t cook or clean, but she dress her ass off and her walk is mean!”- Jay-Z

Anyone that knows me, knows that I’m a fan and a supporter of Teyana Taylor. I’m not even surprised that the avenue of modeling has opened up for her. When you got it, you got it.. and she got it.. bad!

I say good shit, shawty. 🙂

Peep “Ms. Google Me” on the catwalk.. at the 3:20 mark. (Ooowww!)

Saleisha In Shoes

I will be the first to say, I was never interested in this cycle of America’s Next Top Model and I never watched an episode until the finale. 

Regardless, Saleisha is by far the flyest top model to EVER  come out of Tyra’s Boot camp.

To be a young lady of 21, She impressed me with her wit, organic sense of style, natural beauty, and genuiness and sincerity. Obviously, the judges agreed!!

In addition to the $ 100,000 contract with Covergirl cosmetics, she also got a contract with Elite Model Management, and a cover and a six page fashion spread in Seventeen Magazine.

You can read ANTM’s official recap HERE and check out her more of Saleisha’s gallery HERE

Once again, Congratulations to Saleisha Stowers!! Ass N’ Kicks wishes you the best of luck in your future endeavors!!!

Halle looks fabulous pregnant and still rockin 4″ inch heels. You can’t hate her for that. In my opinion she’s showing us how it should be done for the Fall/Winter season. Take a couple of notes on what real style looks like.

Do you agree or disagree???

DJ. Beverly Bond

Celebrity DJ Beverly Bond enlisted an army of the most accomplished and aspiring entertainers to acknowledge achievements in females of color at the 2nd Annual Black Girls Rock! Awards and gala.

Co-hosted by actresses Gabrielle Union and Regina King, this year’s honorees include Essence magazine Editorial Director Susan L. Taylor (”Social Humanitarian Award”), Rutgers University Women’s Basketball Team (”Monument Award”), Universal/Motown President Silvia Rhone (”Corporate Award”) and Missy Elliott (”Creative Visionary Award”), among others.

“We are proud and humbled to have such strong, beautiful and powerful women involved with this event,” said Bond, founder and president of BGR! “In light of the media’s constant focus on the negative depiction of Black women it is so very important that Black Girls Rock! takes the time to shine a much needed light on our Sheroes.”

CoverGirl spokesmodel Rihanna, R&B singer Mario, poet and artist Danny Simmons, MC Lyte, Ashanti, and Bad Boy recording artist Cassie will be on hand as presenters. Award recipients Chrisette Michele (”CoverGirl Queen Who Got Next Award”) and Marsha Ambrosius (”Soul Sista Award’) are slated to perform alongside country music star Rissi Palmer, Jean Baylor formerly of the R&B duo Zhane, and J Records newcomer Emily King.

To be a women with “Substance of Style” it takes a couple of things.

1. A MEAN SHOE GAME – Flats to go with your jeans and 3″ heels to go with that little black dress.

2. STYLE – Style is more that matching your shoe with your top or bag. Style is about knowing you look good from head to toe. STYLE = SWAG

3. CONFIDENCE – Always feeling good about yourself. Whether your sporting sweats and sneaker or a dress and heels.

* I will add the shoe sense to Ass N’ Kicks. When I was younger I was a huge sneakers fan but with age I’ve turned that love to shoes. My post will be strickly shoes, once in awhile I will show you pictures of my NEW additions to my collection.
