Angela Simmons attended Tila Tequila's MTV New Year's Eve Masquerade party in this fringe BCBG MAXAZRIA dress.

Last year Eva Mendes attended the launch party of the Campari Calendar 2008 in the same yellow Dolce & Gabbana Resort silk gown with the oversize bow under the bodice.

Serena Williams wore this metallic gray Rebecca Taylor tulip-hemmed dress at the launch party of her sister Venus Williams' new clothing line EleVen.

Just like ShopBop's model, Serena wore silver shoes with her Rebecca Taylor cami dress.
ShopBop.com has this look listed for $262.00.
As to why her dress is wrinkled and the reason why her hair is in her face, I suppose that Serena's being Serena.
To be fair, the material of this dress is stretch silk and she gets a pass for upgrading her catwalk style last year.

At the premiere of 'Somebody Help Me', actress Tia Mowry wore this abstract print mini dress from Thread Social.
Shopbop.com has this '60s-inspired dress in a different color for $506.00.

I've noticed one consistent thing with Tia Mowry's style. She loves to mix affordable designs into her wardrobe.
In the past Tia was wore Bebe, Baby Phat, and now Thread Social.
Isn't her red bad simply divine?
On Thread Social's official site, Beth Blake (co-founder) wore the same dress as Tia in the March edition of "Glamour" magazine as well as at "Lucky" magazine event.

The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul Mary J Blige is celebrating her 37th birthday today.
I thought it'll be fun to reflect on Mary J Blige's ever-changing style as best seen in her vibrant music videos.
Mary set trends when she first stepped out in the scene. Remember the backwards baseball cap and the oversize jersey?
Mary's fashion was in your face and very much raw but in a good way.
Her hair may have been dye from red to orange and back but she maintained honey blonde locks throughout her career.

Two more print ads in support of Marc Jacobs Spring 2008 collection featuring Victoria Beckham surfaced online earlier today.
In the print ADs, Victoria is seen wearing a gray dress coming out a Marc Jacobs shoe box (well that's what that looks like to me) .
She's also photographed popping out of a Marc Jacobs bag.
Shot by Juergen Teller, Victoria and Marc produced this photo shoot this past November.
Victoria on her favorite pick from the Marc Jacobs print AD campaign: "Truth be told, I love them all. If I have to pick favorites, it’s the package series: me coming out of the box in the gray knit dress shot with the hat, as well as the image of the oversize shopping bag. Certainly, if you can’t get locked inside a Marc Jacobs store, then trapped inside a Marc bag has got to be the next best thing.”

This black silk chiffon baby dress from Bebe was worn by actress Tia Mowry at the Kissable Couture Launch Party.
Bebe's online boutique has this dress with the divine jeweled bodice for $139.00.
I like how "The Game" starlet mismatched her accessories and shoes with this all black ensemble.
From the purple suede pumps to the silver clutch, Tia simply pulls off this look from head to toe.
If you're keeping track, Tia love Bebe. (Most on this later on.)
