Since every little detail about the nuptials was kept under wraps from the media until exclusive photos were revealed in the current issue of WOW! (A Nigerian periodical) we can only tell you that the couple reportedly got hitched in Puerto Rico this past May and Jombo’s beautiful dress was designed by Oleg Cossini.

First Look: Actress Halle Berry in a Red Saree from the Upcoming Film ‘Cloud Atlas’

Sporting sleek shoulder length hair with highlighted bangs and wearing a traditional red saree adorned with golden accents complete with what looks like bridal henna on her hands and arms, Halle Berry appears to be portraying an Indian bride in this movie still taken from the upcoming Hollywood film ‘Cloud Atlas’ in which the Oscar™ winner is said to be portraying several characters. The film, due in theatres this Autumn, also co-stars fellow Oscar™ winners Susan Sarandon, Tom Hanks and Jim Broadbent.

Sidewalk Style: Penelope Cruz Expresses Her Love For Espresso Head-To-Toe

Sidewalk Style: Penelope Cruz Expresses Her Love For Espresso Head-To-Toe

Attending a screening of ‘From Rome with love’ last evening in New York City, new mum and Academy-award-winning actress Penelope Cruz sent temperatures rising (seriously, it was like 100° yesterday) in a skin-tight lacy (if I had to guess, Dolce & Gabbana but correct me if I’m wrong) espresso-brown mini dress. What I love most about this look is the fact that everything matches to a tee (shoes, clutch, dress, hair) and the length of the dress is just right. This looks like a woman who is comfortable in her own skin and therefore does not feel the need to try so hard at all. In fine form, Mrs. Javier Bardem.

Go Penelope!

Sidewalk Style: Kim Kardashian Gets Peplum-ed in Paris

Parisian Style?

Kim K.

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: Kim Kardashian is very stylish but this look begs the question. Beige can be a very cruel colour on curvy girls as there is nowhere to hide unless you are wearing a beige ball gown. Perhaps, a body sculpting silhouette would have been more flattering (and not to mention forgiving) on the well-endowed Kardashian. The doggy-collar chain in on-trend but I’m not sure I like it with this ensemble and I also would have preferred colourful strappy heels instead of playing it safe in typical noir.

Top 3 Best Dressed at the 2012 Scottish Fashion Awards in Glasgow

Top 3 Best Dressed at the 2012 Scottish Fashion Awards in Glasgow

Acknowledging the best in Scottish fashion, style and design for the past year, the SFAs took place this evening at the Clyde Auditorium in Glasgow, Scotland.

Among the elite attending Scotland’s most prestigious fashion event; Louise Linton wore one of my favourite design statements of the night, striking a pose on the red carpet in bip-cut white gown with such delicate detailing as lace appliqué, pleated double layer skirts and a thigh-high slit which she gracefully did not emphasise by sticking her leg out of it a la current trend. Also notably fashionable were Cat Cubie in a fuchsia pink peplumed short-sleeved gown and Karen Gilan who certainly looked liked a winner in a 3\4 sleeve canary yellow and black mini dress paired with black pumps as she posed with her ‘style icon’ of the year award.

Mag Rack: Freida Pinto Covers Flaunt Magazine for July 2012

Fabulous Freida

Proving once and for all in a pictorial for US Flaunt July 2012 that there is more to her than just playing the damsel-in-distress with the exotic looks. These photos bring to mind the blaxploitation era heroines portrayed by actress by Pam Grier in the 1970s, a no-nonsense crime-fighting sexy woman who was not to be messed around with. Well done Freida! This was totally unexpected. I hope this helps people see her in a different light and that we get to see her in more diverse roles from here on.

Freida Fabulous

Fashion Update: Solange Knowles Stuns in Yellow + More Fascinating Looks from the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards

Fashionwidget’s Favourites

Karolina, Solange & Kate


Zoe & Padma


June, Hilary & Selita

From Zoë Saldaña’s noir sheer cut-out Prabal Gurung to Solange Knowles in a yellow and white Marni mini, the fashions of the CFDA fashion awards were certainly a hot topic for discussion this year. I especially appreciated the understated elegance of Padma Lakshmi’s intricately detailed Naeem Khan gown, in a sea of colourful statement ensembles, I think she managed to stand out in black just like Zoë Saldaña. June Abrose glittered in silver sequins. Hilary Rhonda colour-blocked in cut-out perfection and Selita Ebanks was a vision in white. With the absence of Lady Gaga (a previous CFDA fashion award recipient) who stole the show and not to mention all the attention last year, there was room for all sorts of fashion statements this year. Fashionwidget, narrowed it down to the nine pictures as seen above, we also loved Devon Aoki in her amazing red and black Alice+Olivia strapless gown. Unfortunately, our photographer was unable to snap a photo of her. Never fear, I will re-blog or update this post if I stumble upon a photo of her (in the dress) that I can legally upload.
