Marc Jacobs, Victoria Beckham, Oscar de la Renta And More For The New York Fashion Week!


Ituen Basi and Alter Ego, two prominent Nigerian brands, were featured in Womens’ Wear Daily at the 11th edition of the four-day women’s clothing and accessories trade show. Both fashion brands were at the Pitti Imagine trade show in Florence in January.
Taking inspiration from traditional Nigerian fabrics and decors, Ituen Basi — who last October was nominated “Designer of the Y ear” at the Africa Fashion Awards promoted by the 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa — designed a practical, contemporary collection that included a silk and stretch cotton short-sleeve dress embellished with a print of multicolor African beads.
The Alter Ego collection by Nwakaego Maduekwe of the Alter Ego label was strong in prints and consisted of feminine frocks, including a draped floor-length dress in silk.
The New York Fashion Week
The autumn/winter 2013-14 fashion season has begun to unfold as fashion month gears into action. The fashion show kicked off on the 6th of February with the first of the NYFW shows. Several designers are lined up for the week such as Organic, Veronica Beard, Rachel Comey, Richard Chai, Creatures of the Wind, Duckie Brown, Band Of Outsiders, Jason Wu, Prabal Gurung, Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham, The Olsen Twins, Carolina Herrera, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta and much more.


Marc Jacobs has had to push back his slot for the New York Fashion Week show while he waits for missing items to be delivered. Instead of showing on Monday, February 11 as scheduled, the collection will now be unveiled on the final day, Thursday, February 14 at 8pm at the New York State on Lexington Avenue alongside Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein.



Backstage Preparations
After the NYFW, the London week is scheduled to start the next day, on the 15th of February.
In Other news, a sneak preview has been provided for the March Issue of the Vogue magazine which features the model of the moment, Cara Delevingne on the cover. She is styled wearing a Giorgio Armani dress and photographed by Mario Testino.

MICHELLE OBAMA WEARING JASON WU – 2013 STATE OF THE UNION


 First Lady Michelle Obama attends the 2013 State of the Union address of her husband President Barack Obama.
She entered the US Capitol to applause and then hugs Cleopatra Cowley-Pendleton and Nathaniel A. Pendleton Sr. of Chicago, Illinois.  The Pendleton’s daughter, Hadiya Pendleton, was murdered on January 29, 2013, when she was shot and killed in Harsh Park on Chicago’s South Side.
Dress: Because I am Fabulous can tell you first, Mrs Obama wore Jason WU pre-fall 2013 oxblood red a-line dress.
Remember she wore Jason Wu at the 2013 Presidential Inaugural Ball in late January and countless other times including the 2008 Inaugural ball.
It’s safe to say he’s her favorite fashion designer!
I’m not surprised the dress she wore tonight was modified for her. It is normal for designers like WU, Naeem Khan, Thakoon, Prabal Gurung, Narciso Rodriguez and Zac Posen who regularly dress the first lady to provide custom samples.
What I want to know is, was this one of the many dresses sent to the first lady’s office during the busy inauguration festivities weeks ago?
She looked radiant still sporting her buzzed about bangs and a bronze brooch by Alexis Bittar, which was perfectly placed on the top quarter of her dress.
What do you think of Mrs. O look tonight at the State Of The Union?
Was it Fab or Drab?

There is so much music can do to help create the right attitude and mood… especially this valentine season. This weekend, we have selected music with couples in view.  Let the smooth serenades churning out deep lyrics evoke the romantic in you. Happy Valentine!
Capital Femi – I Have Found My Wife


Although 2012 didn’t feel as though it was, Femi made a bold statement by naming his album the year of the R&B and this Valentine that genre gets to shine. His new release I Have Found My Wife came just in time as the valentine season kicked in so yep, this one is most certainly a winner for the guys. (winks)

Listen to I have found my wife

Banky W – Yes/No

One of the best songs – if not the very best that was release last year and oh… thr video has got a spectacular story to it! The video follows the story of how ‘little Banky’ fell in love with a girl while in secondary school and ended up proposing to her few years later amidst hurdles.
Banky W is known for smooth R&B with the local blend that has made his song the ladies favourite… they don’t call him Mr. Capable for nothing!

Iyanya – Love Truly

Before he became the Kukere Master, Iyanya made beautiful R&B tunes. A lot of people did not get to listen to Iyanya’s album and while that is a pity, you get a chance to listen to one of the most spectacular song from the album My Story.
Iyanya has said his new album will be a mix of the R&B alter ego with the name ‘Desire’ and the Kukere Master. Maybe we might still get to enjoy those beautiful tunes on this new album.

Faze – Nkem

Faze makes some of the most romantic and decent tunes ever. The brother, all through his career, has been adamant and has stayed true to his R&B and Reggae root. The songs which this incredible artiste has churned out in the R&B genre have become uncountable but in recent times, ‘Nkem’ stands out… where is Faze anyways?

2Face – Be There

What’s gospel according to ‘Naija’ R&B without 2Face. The other brother from the Plantashun Boyz, with good looks and good vocals, it will be a crime if 2Face did not step on R&B tracks every now and then. Some people may dispute the fact that “Be There was classified as R&B with the argumaent that it is alternative Pop, while the song can fit into the category, it is also rooted strongly in R&B. More importantly is the fact that it is a reassuring song with a strong message for the Valentine season, so enjoy!

Eat Your Way To Health: 5 Fatty Foods That Can Make You Skinny!


It’s easy to think eating fatty foods will make you fat, but according to dieticians, sometimes the body needs fatty foods to aid in proper digestion and enzyme breakdown. While eating food that is packed with bad kinds of fat will make you fat, healthy fats can suppress appetite while improving heart health and fueling your metabolism.

The OnoBello.com team has put together some fatty foods that can keep you in shape. You only have to always remember to do things in moderation.
1. Grass-Fed Beef
Grass-fed beef is beef that simply has a healthy mix of grass-fed protein and smart lipids. When eating out, you can always make a special request for this, or for lean meat. Studies show that grass-fed meat is low in saturated fat and gives you from two to six times more "good" fat called "omega-3 fatty acids, which are known to reduce the risk of heart and brain diseases, and cancer.
Plus grass fed meat is tastier and has fewer calories than conventional meat.

2. Olive Oil
Olive oil is rich in cancer-fighting ingredients and heart-strengthening fats, and helps reduce levels of obesity. At least two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil is recommended each day, to enjoy the healthy benefits of the olive oil.
3. Coconut
Coconut is one of the fatty fruits we try to avoid, but it provides a nutritious source of meat, juice, milk, and oil that has fed and nourished populations around the world for generations. It’s high in saturated fat, and contains a type of acid that fights bacteria and improves cholesterol scores. Plus, a study show that coconut oil reduces belly fat.

4. Dark Chocolate
Dark chocolate is proven to be good for your heart and brains. It helps control blood sugar and is full of antioxidants. Plus, dark chocolate can help you flatten your belly and harden tooth enamel due to its magic ingredient theobromine and pure cocoa butter.
5. Almond Butter
Studies show that almonds can help you lose weight despite their high fat content because they keep you feeling full and satisfied. Almond butter contains numerous nutrients that benefit cardiovascular health such as potassium, magnesium and calcium.
