WTF was Scott thinking?!!!! Keeping up recap.

So I know that I haven't been keeping up on the keeping up recap, that's my bad, but I felt that there was nothing too exciting to blog about. This past Sunday(21 March '10) was just crazy!!! Scott went to freaking far! It was Kim's birthday so the family decided to go to Vegas to go celebrate the big event. Scott was invited too and what a huge mistake that was. There was a business meeting taking place as well that Kris organised, oh I forgot to tell you, Scott works for Kris now so he was part of that meeting too. I know that Kris has been on Scott's case about not having a job and stuff, but can you blame her? Kourtney is pregnant and her baby daddy ain't got a job, I mean really, can you blame her for being on his case? No!!! So anyway, Scott takes it so bad that Kris is all up in his grill about the situation that he decides to get motherless with Rob at the hotel their staying at. Now here is where the drama starts. The first thing the loser does is interrupt Rob while he is chillin with a female acquaintance, and carries on to call Robs friend a hoe and so on. Then the next thing is Scott is wrecking Kim's penthouse apart and making a hell of a noise while the girls are trying to get ready for Kim's birthday dinner. Then the freakin cream cheese comes through where he is now at Kim's birthday dinner, drunk,causing a scene in front of his boss and Kim's family saying the most crazy things, and then attacks a waiter by shoving a hundred dollar bill down his throat because he wouldn't get Scott a drink(due to Kris's orders). I mean it was complete madness. I knew that Scott was a loser, I just wasn't sure how big of a loser he was. I mean I was so appalled by this that I kept changing the channel. I mean really Kourtney, I know you love your man and want a daddy for your baby, but is he really worth it?

Aliuxism's sirens of yester year!!

Firstly, lets identify what a siren is."In Greek mythology, the Sirens (Greek singular: Σειρήν Seirēn; Greek plural: Σειρῆνες Seirēnes) were three dangerous bird-women, portrayed as seductresses" (\

Why the topic of sirens?I was just thinking the other day about the whole sexy movement. Who started it, who owns it and who determines who or what is sexy. Last year sometime I was watching channel 109 on DSTV aka TCM(Turner Classic Movies), and the movie Butterfield 8 was playing. I loved this movie the first time I saw it, and it also didn't hurt that an icon of mine was the the leading lady in this picture. It's about a prostitute who falls in love, yes it's kinda like Pretty woman before pretty woman, but not really. The leading lady was Elizabeth Taylor. I mean nothing and no one epitomises or embodied being a siren like she did. In her day she was the beginning and end of beauty, and very few woman could even think about disputing that very obvious fact. Ms. Taylor was not the only one from that time who set of smoke alarms or caused car accidents. Ava Gardner, Brigitte Bardot and Marilyn Monroe (just to name a few) were also considered the cream of the cream back in their day. Woman wanted to be them and men wanted to be with them. Ava drove a billionaire banana's(Howard Huges),Brigitte, a hairstyle that launched a million imitations and Marilyn, well, lets just say the happy birthday song never sounded sexier! All four of these ladies were not just eye candy, but were all highly successful at their craft, but they each had that extra something that your Katherine Hepburn's, Ingrid Bergman's and Lauren Bacall's didn't have. Sex appeal. In those days it was all about being Conservative, what will the neighbours think and a woman can't do what a man does. Ava, Brigitte, Elizabeth and Marilyn showed that they didn't need to approve anything to anyone, they were who they were, and most of the time if not always it was more than enough to keep the world entertained and in awe.

One thing that I've notice with that generation and our generation is that, that generation was very subtle with sexiness, but it was still sexy! I mean you could have your knee's covered and your shoulders covered and still be one hell of a hottie! Now a days you can't show enough! I mean video girls, clubbing girls and "working girls" all look the same. Trashy, not even the littlest bit sexy. The sirens of yester year were still very much ladies who were mannered and exuded sex appeal, they never had to flaunt it! This brings me to the next question, who are the sirens of today? I have my pick of ladies who I think are completely 100% sirens.

At number four, she is just true class and beauty, it is siren No. 4 Catherine zeta Jones

At number three we have a very quiet and captivating beauty who is so sexy, but has never even tried to be, it's Ashwarya Rai!

At number two it is someone who I have always thought was true sexiness, from her deep, sultry voice to her luscious lips and ultra curvaceous body, its Scarlett Johansson! We even share a birthday!!!!

Number 1 is the most confident, amazingly beautiful and strong Angelina Jolie. I have no words except to say she is the siren of sirens right now!

Karl ia King!!!!

The king of chicness, timeless style and elegance Karl Lagerfeld has produced a marvel of a collection at this years 2010/11 Paris Fashion week. The collection was futuristic yet classic at the same time, showing that this master of fashion knows how to fuse the two without it getting nasty. The futuristic trends that I have seen seem to be rather O.T.T(over the top) and unwearable. Crazy colours and shapes that sream of costume attire gone sour have been a popular trend that I can only discribe as sh*t. But now a fashion god has come to the rescue and beyond to deliver what I deam one of the best collections I have ever seen from Mr. Lagerfeld. When looking at the collection I see cohesion, I see timeless style, not to forget quality and sophistication. The Karl Lagerfeld woman is always the epitomy of class and style and he proves it once again in this collection. I also feel that this look embodies Karl Lagerfelds own style, but this is the female version. Doesn't the black and white colour scheme remind you of a certain designers particular signature style? I find it very reminicent of Mr. Largerfelds legendary black and white suite and all that is missing is a pair of gloves. the look is clean, smart and beatuiful and still with all of that it looks very simple and easy to enjoy. Hip hip horay Mr. Largerfeld, you did it again! This is one forthe archives!

Dior, Dior, Dior!!!!!

Late night as I was scanning through my dstv, I landed up on Ftv just in time to watch the Christian Dior show. I'm lost for words right now as I try to explain just how amazing the show was. John Galliano personified perfection like I've never seen it before(well, Bottega Veneta always gets it for me) with the autumn/winter collection he unvailed at Paris fahion week. It was sweet, elegant, strong, sexy and sophisticated. I normally think Galliano goes a bit O.T.T(over the top) with his collections, but this time I was pleasently suprised. The fabrics, the colours, the hair and make-up were just on point. 11/10 for Mr. Galliano, I can't wait to see what other designer are goign to offer us eager fahionista's!

Song of the month!

Hey there! So I have the song of the month for March, in fact I have two of them. I have two beautiful ladies anthems, for those days when you either remeber you douchbag of an ex or when you and your beloved one are havng a lovers tiff. The songs are(drumroll)......... Amerie featuring Fabuolous, "More than love" and Latoya Luckett featuring Ludacris, "Regret". Those two are just amazing songs, by two extremely stylish ladies. "More than love" is typical soulful Amerie, great beats, touching lyrics and an amazing video with Ameries high fashion self. So far I feel like she's just killing this new album "In love and war". Her songs really seem to represnet the name of this albumn, I'm so buying it! Then we have Latoya Luckett with "Regret", a really hot song. My girlfriend rang me last night and told me to watch on a music channel, cause she was losing her mind. As I carried on listening to it I was like, "yeah Latoya, I know a nergo or 3 who regret cos they were acting the fool when I was around, but now that I'm gone, they ain't shit"! I love the lyrics, they are very strong and touching to every woman, cos we all been done wrong, the beat is just perfect, mellow, yet I'm feeling it and the video is ok, but her outfits are on point. I love the studded jacket she's rocking in that vid, just too hot. So there you have it, your songs of the month. Enjoy!

Amerie feat. Fabuolous "More than love". Amerie is officially my new style icon. She kills it repeatedly!

Latoya Luckett feat. Ludacris "Regret". Latoya's studded jacket is too hot! Holla at you honey!

The Other Half! Part 1

(Jay-z and Beyonce aka The Carter's)

So now we're out of the month of love and into a month of no meaning, but all is still good. There is a new song of the month, new car of the month and so on. I just want to touch on something really quick, I should have used it for the month of love, but it is what it is. Have you ever seen a couple that was just so perfect that you could see the member's of this couple with anyone else? For example Beyonce and Jay-z, Posh and Becks, Will and Jada. Could you image these people seeing other people? No!!! Why do I say no? Because they complete each other! They execute the power couple brand thing extremely well. Jay-z will never be the force he is without his other half B and vice versa. Victoria has been the driving force in terms of Davids appearance and him becoming a brand all together. Will and Jada seem to have a simple kind of love that seems effortless and natural, but between each other.

Where does all this come from?

(David and Victoria Beckham aka DVB)

I have a gorgeous girlfriend, an absolute stunner of a woman who is pure joy, excitement, brilliance and craziness. I've heard about this guy and that guy, my ex my sex and so on. I've hung out with her, laughed, drank, done it all with her and feel that I've seen many sides to her. She's warm and affectionate, very sweet and extremely loving. I could on and on about just how wonderful she is. Anyway, to get to the core of the story, I believe I found her "other half"! That's exciting stuff going on right there. I mean they couldn't be more right for each other! They could be the future Jay and B, Posh and Becks, Michelle and Barack and so on. So I told my friend about this guy and she seemed not a little bit fazed by what I had said so I suggested that they needed to meet. And they have!!!! But I wasn't there!!! It doesn't matter, point is that it went down. It looks like good news, but I still have to find out. I'll be back with Part 2 of "The other half" story. Peace, Alux!!
