LaLohan is covering this month's Nylon. The cover shot demonstrates that Lindz still has some swagger to tote; the rebel, post-adolescent grunge--I get it. But the inside pics--where is the rest of Lindsay? She looks like a genie coming out of a hash pipe. Her bodysuit or leotard whatever that is covering her fire-crotch looks like an old pair of bloomers. I say, let's let Lady Gaga handle the no pants thing. Oh, and smoking is NOT cool.

For once Oprah shares her cover, and of course it's with Michelle Obama. I'm loving Lady O's Michael Kors ensemble. And Oprah looks pretty. Praise Spring!

Now....other thoughts relating to this show: I was definitely at Providence with my girls on election night, and half the people I know were in Harlem watching the election at the State Building jumbotron. Wish I saw someone shooting so I could get my shine on, lol.
And the BET events dept. needs to get their act together. After playing my friends and me on the RSVP for the Harlem Heights screening at the Apollo, someone decided to confirm everyone, probably fearing numerous no-shows from the terrible weather. Well what do ya know, Harlem showed up and then BET reps were trying to front on THEIR CONFIRMATIONS! Ladies and gents, that is NEVER proper protocol. You NEVER confirm people and then play them after they've made their way to an event in the deep freeze of winter--the coldest day of the freggin season at that. I wish a trick would have given me the blank stare as I waved my confirmation in her face. I really wish, 'cause I'm not even the aggressive type, but that ish was just reckless.

Given the current economic crisis in our country, I thought it more than appropriate to post this classic School House Rock piece. Say it with me:
"I'm just a bill.
Yes, I'm only a bill.
And I'm sitting here on Capitol Hill.
Well, it's a long, long journey
To the capital city.
It's a long, long wait
While I'm sitting in committee,
But I know I'll be a law someday
At least I hope and pray that I will,
But today I am still just a bill."

While much recognition goes to Sean Penn, Kate Winslet and Penelope Cruz, like many women (and men), I was more interested in the gowns than the awards. Here are the real winners:
Grandma went wrong.
After that I headed to the Fashion Indie closing party at Citrine. Fashion Indie was supposed to hold their own week during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, but a disparaging article in the New York Observer--and a resulting lawsuit--put the breaks on that. Nevertheless, Daniel Saynt, President of Indie Fashion Week (and otherwise gorgeous guy), put together a well attended and swanky affair; an excellent way to tell the NYO to kiss it. The event was co-sponsored by Pop Beauty, so I took home some great lip gloss and a glitter stick. I stayed there for a few hours before heading to the Indashio after party at The Dream Hotel...where I stayed with bestie Talisha for about half an our. I'll upload some pics when I come back. gtg!

Olivia Palermo walked by me before attending the Ports 1961 show and for all y'all out there who think she has perfect hair, guess what? Olivia Palermo's got the perfect weave. I don't know how much a pack of that hair cost, but it stays looking amazing on The City. But I think OP needs a black girl in her circle to be like, "Girl, your track is showing," because her tracks were all out there. I'm mad I didn't have my camera on me. But nevertheless, she's gorgeous and rich, so the weave is a small infraction to her overall fabulousness.
Sierra to Tori: I love your jacket
Tori to Sierra: Thanks, it's faux.
Short, but it was nice of her to stop and respond. Who doesn't like a compliment?
This morning I went to the Brian Reyes show. Rachel Bilson, Olivia Palermo and Ivanka Trump were also in the house. I must say that was my favorite collection of them all (thanks Stephanie for making it happen). Very wearable, chic and intelligent. The line featured many belted looks, and slashes on the back and decolletage. The only problem was that the models shoes continued to come off. It was a bit confusing because so many models had to stop and take their shoes off that I wasn't sure if it was part of the show--it wasn't. During the finale, they all held their 5-inch Manolo Blahniks.
But aside from that, the show was superb. I love the entire line. Here's my favorite looks:
