The Cardi B Capsule Fashion Collection Is A Hit…

In a fashion collaboration that’s been in the works for months, recording artist Cardi B dropped her Fashion Nova capsule collection at 10PM/PST time yesterday…and immediately sold out. Yes. That shiny trench, the faux leather biker jacket with exaggerated puff sleeves, the long burgundy faux fur coat—all gone. The 82-item collection is a hit for the fashion-loving music star. Fashionistas wishing to score anything from the “Cardi B Collection” are currently on a wait list on the Fashion Nova site. Well done Cardi B!

Arise In Style…

This voluminous coif confection, crafted from the skilled artistry of British hair pro Hector Obeng, is from his “Arise From The Ashes” collection. The ‘Fro reimagined keeps its gorgeous texture and body while the shape is slightly tweaked—with a slight shift to one side for an asymmetric effect. Bravo!

The Original RHOA Strikes A Pose In Gold…

As part of the original cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Nene Leakes is known for two things: her outspoken attitude and her signature blonde mane. Here, the reality TV star and fashion entrepreneur looks stunning in lengthy loose waves dipped in ombre-effect blonde: a burnished gold crown transforms down mane’s length into caramel hues and ends in honey tones. Gorgeous!

…3 Looks To Love From E People’s Choice Awards!

Even after the trophies have been handed out from last night’s “E People’s Choice Awards” these three stunning styles continue to provide mane inspo. Take a look.

1. Susan Kelechi Watson flaunts sleek lengths detailed with a chic low part and just the slightest hint of volume at the crown. Simply, stylish.

2. Kat Graham mesmerizes with her ever-evolving mane moves—including this chic bob. Over-the-brow bangs paired with a chin-grazing length make this silhouette so haute!

3. Danai Gurira stuns with this voluminous mane. Light crimps give cascading lengths an extra dash of definition. Gorgeous!

…Here’s How To Get In On It!

To celebrate the November 16 release of her 15th full-length album Caution [Epic Records], multiple Grammy award winning global superstar Mariah Carey will host an innovative and immersive activation, “The Mariah Experience,” in New York from November 16 through December 4. It takes over Sony Square NYC at 25 Madison Avenue.

On opening night, November 16, Mariah descends upon the installation at 7:30pm in order to personally sign copies of the new record. Fans may purchase it at Sony Square NYC that day beginning at 10am. While supplies last, purchase grants one wristband to access the signing. Wristbands will be highly sought-after and limited to a first-come, first-served basis.

Get there early!

“The Mariah Experience” brings her world to life like never before. This Mariah Carey-themed experiential space boasts Instagrammable photo sets, multimedia displays, memorabilia, a pop-up shop and much more. This marks a first for the trailblazing superstar and provides the perfect introduction to Caution.
