WE CAN'T STOP DROOLING OVER CREAM TREASURE'S INTRODUCTION AND WEDDING PICTURES


Cream Treasure's wedding journey was the embodiment of a fairytale. Everything from the bridal shower to the introduction ceremony and finally to the wedding was so well executed it would be hard not to envy the bride.
Most impressively she had over 5 outfit changes for her introduction ceremony ,all or which revealed her beauty in different ways,
My favourite was the white 'umushanana' that she accessorized with a gold headband and matching necklace.

FIVE CELEBS THAT ARE ROCKING THE SHIRT DRESS AND SNEAKER TREND


A shirt dress is sexy, versatile and comfortable, (make that double when you pair it with sneakers.). A few of our African celebs show us how to rock these must have items in all the right ways.

TRENDS WE LOVE:THE HIGH LOW CAPE PONCHO


The high low poncho blouse is one of those items that create a dramatic silhouette and thus ensures that the wearer commands attention almost instantly.
It's so beautiful, light and easy to wear and  goes well with a simple pair of skinny jeans or matching trousers.
The best thing about this trend is that it accentuates most body shapes, so do not be afraid of experimenting with it.
 I personally love ponchos and would highly recommend them to any fashion lover, both as casual wear and evening wear.

UGANDAN CELEBS THAT ROCKED THE TULLE SEQUINNED DRESS BEFORE IVANKA TRUMP

The princes tulle dress is really the kind of dress that every girl dreams of .Add in  some sequins and the wearer is bound to shine like a star.
And that is what Ivanka Trump was at the Inauguration ball yesterday, her father's princess.
However this type of dress is not new to our eyes,popular makeup artiste wore a peach version to the Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards in 2016,while fashionista Cynthia Nakiranda wore an equally similar version to the Abryanz Style and Fashion awards 2016,albeit with a slit.
This goes a long way in proving that sequins,matched with a bit of tulle in near nude colours will continue to be a big trend for some years to come.

MELANIA AND IVANKA TRUMP SHINE IN INAUGURAL BALL DRESSES

Melania Trump was quite the sight at the Inaguration dinner last night in an ivory offshoulder gown that she helped co-design with fashion designer Herve Pierre.She then opted for minimal accessories and styled her hair in loose waves across her shoulders.
Not far behind in the fashion department, first daughter Ivanka Trump chanelled a princess in a Carolina Herrera gown.Her ballgown featured a tulle skirt and sheer long sleeves that were embellished with crystals. 
Amazing dresses!

BATTLE OF THE STYLISH FIRST LADIES:MICHELLE OBAMA VERSUS MELANIA TRUMP

It’s a battle of the First Ladies! Michelle Obama wowed the world with her style when she stepped out in a white Jason Wu dress for President Obama’s Inauguration ball in 2009.
It appears Melania Trump is taking over the style baton and garnering speed with her two outfits on the inauguration day.
While Michelle rocked a  dress and cape coat by Isabel Toledo,Melania went for a Jackie Kennedy inspired look in a cool blue dress by Ralph Lauren.

MELANIA TRUMP MAKES A STATEMENT IN MATCHING BLUE OUTFIT FOR INAUGURATION DAY

Ok,I will be the first to admit that I dont like Melania very much.But seeing her in Ralph Lauren head to toe blue.
The brand declined to comment on how the Ralph Lauren Collection came together, whether they offered the powder blue skirt ensemble or if Trump chose it herself.
Florinka Pesenti, vice president of fashion and PR communications for the brand, said Ralph Lauren Collection is the brand's most expensive label.

WHO WORE IT BETTER?DESIRE LUZINDA VERSUS SOUTH AFRICAN SOCIALITE IN THE SHIRT DRESS

Yay!Shirt dresses are finally getting all the attention they deserve and its about time!!!.
I love shirt dresses,I think they look amazing all body shapes and sizes and make for great casual and formal wear.
Our very own Desire Luzinda wore an orange off shoulder version with white sneakers while this South African socialite chose a blue version with a cowl neckline.Which one would you rather?

BATTLE OF THE FLORAL BLACK DRESS:ESTHER NAKITENDE VERSUS THESE LADIES

Hey guys,its been a minute.My schedule is extremely tight  and I hardly have the space to breathe even.But am still here and won't be going anywhere soon.
