Red Carpet: OSCARS 2016

I thought i’d also ‘boycott’ posting about the just concluded 88th Annual Academy Awards, 2016 Oscars Awards, (heard most blacks were boycotting lol) but I thought to myself, is it fair for me to deny my fashion hungry readers the chance to see who wore who to the biggest film awards??? Dubbed #OscarsAllWhite, a few white pieces made it to the event (Lady gaga and Priyanka Chopra got a thumbs up!). Black kinda dominated the red carpet giving it a classy feel but color too was well represented. My gal Kerry Washington totally slayed it!!! [her black leather bodice and the thigh high slit were a YES for me 🙂 ] Sofia Vergara this time round veered away from her usual figure hugging gowns [why did you hide that beautiful Colombian figure? 😉 ]The men were not left behind, they too looked sharp in their Tuxs. Enjoy the gallery…  
Luv, Ms Rayne

Red Carpet: 58th Annual Grammy Awards

So the biggest Music Awards (The Grammys) was held in L.A and the ladies dazzled in cut-outs, high slits and plunging necklines. Janelle’s Black and white ensemble totally blew me away especially the symmetric skirt! Not forgetting her signature braid (s) 🙂 Zendaya’s all suite look also got a thumbs up from me.
Enjoy the pics 🙂

Red Carpet 2016: SUITING UP the GRAMMYS

I hope I ain’t too late in posting about the Grammy Awards (58th Annual) that went down yesterday at the Los Angeles’ Staples Center.
I always do Red Carpet posts on the female stars, so today I’ve decided to do one for the gents. The host LL Cool J looked dapper in an Armani 3 piece tux [crushing over his dimples again 😉 ]. Big Sean, John Legend, Dj Khaleed, Andrew Cedar, Ross Mathews, Common, French Montana, The Weekend and Jack Antonoff topped my best dressed list.
