1. Loose the hat quick, it makes your head look big. Full, long, loose curls would have directed attention toward that great neckline
2. Why must we use red accents for everything??? Here's a fashion freebie: Try purple or green accessories to accent basic fits. The colors definitely stand out and frankly red has been played to death.
3. Those shoes are huge problem. Too Pollyanna meets prostitute. You have fab legs.......an open toe sandal with a thicker ankle strap or a sleek pump would have been far more complimentary for the outfit and season.
Now, let's remember even the most talented stylist can only do so much. While, these suggestions would help immensely, they will not mask the fact that the dress is tragically outdated (thick stripes are so spring 06'). Mel, you're super beautiful and talented, stick to the singing/dancing thing and let a professional handle the wardrobe from now on!
Hate to do it but, you've just been beat!
So during lunch or right after that wake and bake run run run to Target and pick this one up. Target sells the new new for $10 on Tuesdays. So, you betta hurry!

Alright, my pretties!!! How hot is this? For the first time in Vibe's 14 year history, a political figure is gracing the magazines cover (and looking damn good doing it). Barack Obama is acting as cover model this month and is also the subject of a dope article inside (I know the pics are fun, but make sure you READ this one.) As you know, this is a fashion based blog and I try to keep my entries relevant. Well, there is nothing more fashionable than being informed and active, particularly in our current political climate. Obama is reaching out to vibe readers and and as trendsetters'', we should be leading the pack to the polls. Please remember, Bella Beat is not endorsing a candidate as of yet, we are merely giving you the heads up on whats happenin' in the electoral world. So, here are your instructions, shall you choose to accept.......
1. Strut to the most stylish newsstand you know (outdoors of course, so you can be seen)
2. Pick up this months VIBE magazine
3. REGISTER TO VOTE: click here to handle that via the web or if you prefer do handle things vintage style or if you have never registered before, head to the DMV to fill out the required docs by hand.
Get it done now, primaries are closer than you know!

Rihanna and Trina are definately ready for twins day at six flags! Okay, okay all jokes aside, looks like their respective stylists, Nadine V and Mariel Haenn have been spending way too much time together (probably fighting over the sales rack at Trashy Lingerie.)
Serena Williams in the final edition of Jane Magazine
This is how a "woman" should look! I'm getting tired of people calling all these pubescent boy wannabe's, sex symbols. Visable rib cages and knobby knees are not cute. Anywho, you can find Serena, Eva Mendes, Joss Stone and other disrobed divas in this months issue. Buy it! Proceeds benefit the non-profit org, Clothes Off Our Back.
