If ever there was a way to start the week, it would be in the colour red. Be it a hint of Chanel’s Rouge Coco swiped across your lips or a red power dress boldly but tastefully worn, red bears a history of fiery power and unimpeded dominance which is set to put your week in your own hands.
With waist length box braids and corporate black accessories, Laitan is set to start her week in all the professional glamour that accompanies an amazing week. Below is a picture of her in fiery red corporate Chic, I’m sure you’ll agree.
Ps: I loved the necklace my Mum made for the giveaway so much that I kept it. Lol. I’ll get her to make another one for you guys. I promise.
Last Sunday night was the 63rd Primetime Emmy awards and despite my ill health, Taiwo deemed it necessary to wake me. For this reason alone, I will be eternally indebted to her lol.
Incase you were unaware, the Emmy’s red carpet is my all-time favourite red carpet beating the VMA’s, the Oscars and the Grammy’s!!! I’m not sure whether it’s E!’s incredible 360 degree camera or their ingenious stiletto camera that quite serves as the icing on the cake, but the Emmy’s just do it for me (whatever ‘it’ might be).
This year welcomed a lot more reds than I was used to on any red carpet and although myself, I’d have been sceptical about the blend, it appeared to work quite the treat last Sunday night. The likes of Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev looked stunning in a floor length Donna Karen dress with an origami finish; Glee’s Lea Michele was ever the poser in a low draped back, rosette sleeved Marchesa dress; and Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara was dressed in a coral one shoulder chiffon Vera Wang dress.
Heidi Klum was looking every inch the supermodel in her Christian Siriano custom made dress, proving that with a little silk tulle, a bit of vintage lace and a splash of organza, a dress can be transformed into art.
Finally, Evan Rachel Wood depicted sex appeal in her Elie Saab couture dress proving that sexy needn’t be slutty. She looked absolutely gorgeous with her Salvatore Ferragamo shoes and minimal accessories, after all, the dress did do most of the talking. Here are my favourite looks from the Emmy’s 2011……..

Thursday night called for dinner with Sam at Pizza Express and it was then that she introduced me to Alexa…. her Mulberry Alexa that is. She’s bright red with a neatly woven handle and delicate touches of gold. Isn’t she pretty?
