BING BANG BOOM SAY HELLO TO LIYA KEBEDE

Most of you might know her, but for those who don't here is a short bio on this incredible model. She's a 30 year old stunner who was born and raised in Addis Ababa Ethiopia. She was discovered by a French modelling agent while attending Lycee Guebre Mariam. After finishing school she moved to France to pursue modelling. Her big brake came when in 2000 she asked by Tom Ford to sign an exclusive contract for his Gucci Fall/Winter 2000 fashion show. She's graced the cover of Vogue multiple times as well as V, Flair, I-D and has been in campaigns for Gap, YSL, Victoria's secret, Dolce & Gabbana and countless others. She's currently married to an Ethiopian Hedge Fund manager, they have a son Suhul and a daughter Raee.

PALAZZO HOTEL AND CASINO GRAND OPENING

Mandy Moore / Claire Danes

I love Mandy Moore, she's a bit boring, but at least she looks like a real woman. I'm totally digging her shoes, they give her outfit more edge. Claire Claire Claire, I never liked her, I thought she was terrible in Romeo and Juliet! Homegirl can't act.

Christina Ricci / Nicolette Sheridan

Noooooooooooooooooooo Nicolette did you get dressed in the dark? She looks like and old version of 80s Madonna here. She use to dress okay... I don't see how anyone in there right mind could think that outfit is appropriate. I'm going to rip those earrings right off!

Angie Harmon / Hilary Swank / Rebecca Romijn

Hilary, not so matchy matchy next time okay? She really should have worn a dark shoe. Rebecca Polka dots are out! I don't know who Angie Harmon is, but I think her outfit is great.

FOR THE AUSSIES: G'DAY AUSTRALIA PARTY

Oh I miss my second home, I'm still wondering if this whole moving back to Canada was a mistake or not ha. Both places have their perks and their downsides I'm just trying to figure out which one is more bearable then the other. I know I sound lame, but it's a complicated situation. Onto fashion...

Bindi & Terri Irwin

Terri, I know where all still mourning the loss of Steve, but is it necessary to dress up like an 80s barbie? I always thought Terri was beautiful and that all she needed to do was try, but this isn't what I meant. Her face and hair are an improvement, but the rest is just trashy! Are we in south beach? Cover those boobs up, your with your daughter! Bindi is the cutest thing, but black patent shoes would have gone better with that dress.

Kylie Minogue / John Travolta & Oliva Newton John

Kylie did you have an accident at Mood? ugh. I actually really love Olivia's look here. The coat the dress the makeup, perfect! Why does John Travolta always have to flirt with everybody? That hair piece is just scary.

RANDOMS

ASHLEE SIMPSON

Am I the only one in the world who likes this girl? I don't see why everyone hates on her so much. I love her first album, it's gotten me through the toughest times I still listen to it often.

HEIDI AND HER NEW FACE

She's actually wearing something cute for once, but she's mistaken if she thinks it's going to distract me from her face. I was almost weeping the other day for this girl, it's just sad that she's that broken inside that she has to wreck herself. You can tell she's a 'good' person. She's just been so manipulated by Spencer.

ERYKAH AND HAIR

I actually think she looks really cute, if anybody can work that fro it's her.

Mahalo fashion,
Jen

I totally want Erykah's hair. And glasses.
I don't mind Ashlee Simpson.

WendyB said...

Funny post!!!

Secretista said...

Liya's daughter is too cute!

I chuckled when I read what you wrote about Claire. Now I have to rent a movie with her in it and see the lack of acting skills you are talking about.

I couldn't get pass the psychedelic (sp?) earing Nicolette is wearing. Just a bad Fashion move all over. The shoes seem alright--heh?

I think Angie Harmon is from The Woman's Murder club or something along those lines on ABC.

Wow, Terri is actually good looking. She tried with the outfit. I mean her specialty is animals, not Fashion. And, she wears khaki all the time, so I guess we could give her some slack... may be...

I didn't like Ashlee at first because I always felt she was TRYING to be some1 she wasn't. I'm okay with her now.

OHMYYGGUHH--I couldn't even tell that was Heidi at first glance. Poor girl, she comsumed by Hollywood and Spencer.

The fro makes Ms. Badu look young. I like it.

Lovely post dear.

Jill said...

I like those pictures of Ashlee, & Liya Kebede is a great model.

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

Secretista - Yes your right about Terri, but she can afford a stylist. Besides animals or not anybody can see that dress is trashy :) xx

Jackie said...

no, an 89.5% is an A.
an 89.4% is a B.


and i had an 89% =[


But anyways, nice post!

SET said...

LIYA IS HOT.

J said...

Yup yup I LOVE Ashlee Simpson's first album.

Angie Harmon is from Law and Order! And the Women's Murder Club, her new show. She was on an episode of Fashionably Late with Stacy London.

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

^ Ohhh I don't watch any of those shows :s

Aretha said...

Erykah Badu has a really big hair hahahhaa
And I can't stand Heidi, she's (was) toooooo fake
Hey Jen, when I'm gonna be part of your links!!!????

Wendy said...

Liya is my idol. Her daughter is so adorable. Poor Heidi, its a shame.

key said...

that little girl is gorgeous!!!

ps: hey jen i already sent you my form like a week ago but i don´t know if you get it because i haven´t any confimation mail... just to let you know if you have the form just let me a comment, is easier.

FashionQueen101 said...

I like ashlee simpson, I much prefered her dark as well!

Marleaux said...

LIYA has always been my favorite. I adore her. I love Erykah too. I buy all her albums, sound unheard. She could have a song called, I Hate Marleaux and I'd bump it on repeat.

Romeika said...

I love Claire and Christina Ricci's look. Liya looks GORGEOUS.

Girlie said...

liya's daughter is gorgeous...
heidi....no comment on her man!!!


Mandy moore looks hella cute....and so does christina ricci...

nice post!!!!

xxx

Mer said...

I love Lya Kebede, she is just great!!

Fashion Tidbits said...

I've always thought that Liya Kebede was beautiful but I had no idea that she was from Ethiopia//

Imelda said...

I love Christina Ricci in this photo! Her hair looks great and the cut of the dress goes well with the dark blue color!

The Seeker said...

nice post :)
Liya Kebede is really beautiful, I just love her with the blue dress, and the white one also.

xxx

Cate said...

Nicolette Sheridan's clothes are just ugh. Madonna could at least pull it off. I don't like the cut of Terri's dress that much.
and, by the way, i don't like ashlee simpson, sorry...

Lynn said...

I like Ashley Simpson too! :]

The Clothes Horse said...

Poor, poor Heidi, I wish she would just be comfortable with herself. Christina Ricci should take her hair dark again. Liya is gorgeous and still doing so well for her age as a model!

In Yr Fshn said...

That woman has had two babies!? Wow.
She's lovely.
And why must Miz Danes always wear colors that wash her out. Sadly, as I watch the My so called life DVD, I feel it was her peak...

Barb. said...

i don't hate ashlee, but i don't like...just don't mind!

molly said...

WOW....just WOW that model is absolutely STUNNING

and erykah badu is great haha

jayne said...

ooo claire looks good :)

tiptoe said...

I'll start backwards.

I think erykah's hair is the best hair I've seen in a looong time. I love her glasses, shirt, pants, and shoes. Am I forgetting something? Oh yeah, I also love the contrast in people between her and the dude standing behind her in the first photo.

heidi's shoes are cute. when was this picture taken? isn't it winter right now?

I think a lot of people hate ashlee because she's trying to be something she is not.

kylie minogue looks like a genie.

bindi and terri scare me. the whole family scares me,,,

angie harmon and hilary swank both look really polished. rebecca romijn doesn't.

christina ricci's look is my favorite look overall today. it fits her personality and body. I was born on the same day as her, so I might be giving her too much credit.

claire danes' dress washed her out. mandy moore's dress doesn't favor her figure.

liya kebede is a good role model.

Miss Woo said...

Eryka's glasses and big hair is fab! And Clair Danes, why do you always have to look so annoyingly good?

Seraphine said...

I love Liya's children's clothes line. Cute cute cute.
Christine Ricci is never boring. But you're right, Mandy Moore is a bit of a log, albeit a nice one.
Is that Erykah's real hair? That's a wig, right???

Secret Agent said...

Whoa, Liya's daughter is so cute with those ridiculous dimples.
Ashlee Simpson looks pretty good in those pictures. And yes, it may seem like you're the only who who does likes her. It's a conspiracy/cult thing lol. Everyone started hating her after the whole SNL thing and then the Orange Bowl thing. There isn't really any reason, people are just following each other.
Heidi looks like crap...her face looks so big and bony in those pictures.
Erykah Badu looks awesome.
Also, thanks for the compliment about my writing being "smooth". =)

Claire's dress is beautiful- that champagne color makes it look so soft and the cut is so smooth and flowing!

Jay Cam said...

erykah has a wild fro! i wounder how she would look without it..

all the celebs look so anorexic its not even funny. they are becoming a little too thin now!

Lynn said...

That girl's gonna grow up gorgeous like mom.

I think Danes need to put on weight, her head and hair looks too big most of the time.

Love Ricci's and Simpson's style!

I love Australia, never been to Canada yet, someday for sure.

cotton candy said...

wow! those shots of ashlee look realli funky and cool!

Nicole Then said...

i love liya, such a role model!

Carolina Lange said...

Liya is so beautiful!

Tala said...

omg heidi go back to colorado.

and that dress christina ricci is wearing is amazing - does anyone know where it is from?

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

^ not sure where it's from.

Thanks for all the insight guys!

Grace said...

just wanted to say that damn erykah- you rock that fro. she's a stunner for sure!

and liya- goodness me, she's just beautiful.

Candid Cool said...

liya! absolutely beautiful. i wonder if its a mother and daughter collection. because im in love with that grey maxi dress

CHIC NOIR said...

Can I just say that I LOVE LIYA KEBEDE! I would also like to mention that I love Christina
Ricci's haircut. Although it is quite severe, the Louise Brooks haircut is very flatering on many people(Katie Holms,Christina Ricci,Natalie Portman).

bitterbabe said...

Seriously I agree with you 100% on Heidi's face. She is a total BUTTER FACE if I have ever seen one.
