Nude undergarments are a must-have for women who want a polished look when wearing sheer or white clothing. But, for many women whose skin tones are darker than the average version of “nude” available on the market, which is usually a shade of beige, finding the perfect seamless undergarment can be difficult. A new hosiery and lingerie line, NubianSkin, is aiming to change that with the introduction of a line of essential undergarment needs, available in suitable skin-tones for women of color.
Nubian Skin founder, Ade Hassan, developed the line after being frustrated by the lack of undergarments that met the needs of ethic women. With the new line, women can choose from four different dark skin tone shades including Café au Lait, Caramel, Cinnamon and Berry. The company has a skin-tone matching guide on their website to help customers select the hue that best suits them.
Nubian Skin, which is based in London, recently launched at Nordstrom stores in the US and ships worldwide. Learn more.
Last weekend was a beautiful spring day here in NYC, so I decided to pull out one of my favorite tops and paired it with jeans and heels a for a chic, but casual spring day outing. The top features a shimmery gold fabric with a teal stripe pattern, perfect for celebrating the sunshine and warmer weather.
For my makeup I kept it simple wearing Flower Beauty lipstick in Ginger Lilly on the lips. Because I was out in the sun, I chose to wear a bronzer with some spf in it, so I wore Physician’s Formula City Glow Daily Defense Bronzer SPF 30. On my eyes, I wore Physican’s Formula Custom Eye Enhancing Extreme Shimmer Gel Cream Shadow & Liner Trio since the shimmers in it nicely matched my top.
Jennifer Hudson stunned on the red carpet on March 28th wearing a fabulous black jumpsuit to the 28th annual Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in Inglewood, California. The all-black fitted number stood on its own with a sexy v-neckline, while the only bright pops of color were seen with the purple lipstick she rocked and the blue strap on the sassy sandals that adorned her feet. Perfect for Spring, here are some black rompers you can wear, inspired by the American Idol starlet.
On September 9th, I attended the Spring/Summer Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week runway show of Kati Stern Venexiana, known as the go-to fashion house for rock-n-roll haute couture. As the last show of Saturday night, the presentation did not disappoint. Fifty-seven gorgeous evening gowns graced the runway, captivating the audience with a show of freely flowing fabrics and intricate crystal detailing. The collection itself is a unique juxtaposition – gowns featuring billowing chiffon and taffeta contrasted greatly with bold metallic and pieces featuring open-backs and deep, plunging necklines.
Prints were scarce, but crystals were in abundance with this collection, so these gowns are not for the woman who doesn’t want to be a glittering showstopper.
Although, black was prominent, the color scheme nicely incorporated soft, feminine pastels with a pallet of yellow, aqua, turquoise, yellow, mint green, pink and lilac.
Launched in 2003 by designer Kati Stern, the collection is sold at high-end retailers around the world including Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.
Kourtney Kardashian looked amazing in a white-lace jumpsuit at the Women’s Health Hosts Hamptons ‘Party Under The Stars’ for RUN10 FEED10.

Here’s how you can get a similar look this summer.
On Wednesday, July 9th, 2014, I attended the Celebrate Life! Soirée’ presented by the Birthday Girl and the JED foundation at the Paramount Hotel in midtown Manhattan. Birthday Girl is a birthday apparel and lifestyle brand that was established by Mary J. Blige & her protégé, Starshell, who lost her sister to suicide at the age of 14. The efforts of Birthday Girl are combined with JED foundation and the Love is Louder movement with the goal of breaking the stigma attached to mental and emotional illness such as depression, anxiety and body image issues.
The event was held to raise awareness to the mission and programs of Birthday Girl, and the celebrate life movement. Attendees enjoyed cocktails compliments of Birthday Cake Wines and Ciroc, and had photos taken in an interactive photobooth.
Perhaps most poignant was when Birthday Girl Founder Starshell addressed attendees with the story of her personal tragedy, and encouraged the audience to share their own stories. One by one guests shared emotional anecdotes to a crowd full of strangers about losing loved ones and learning to celebrate life.
Guests also had the opportunity to shop Birthday Girl apparel available at the event – a portion every sale funds suicide prevention programs. To learn more about the organization click here.
