A Day in the Life: Estelle and the Fashion Against Aids Collection

Hey Glamazons!

The fight against Aids has a new face: Estelle…and Katy Perry and Yoko Ono and N.E.R.D. Pop’s most conscious stars rallied together to design original pieces for H&M’s and DAA’s (Designers Against AIDS) Fashion Against AIDS collection (25% of the proceeds go to AIDS prevention initiatives). The launch event took place at the new H&M store on 86th and Lexington on Wednesday where guests, including yours truly, sipped Belvedere mixed drinks, jammed to tunes by DJ Kiss, swiped free condoms and shopped before the store opened to the public (and with a pretty discount…lucky, I know!).

Strewn across 80’s-inspired tees and drawn in graffiti and bubble letters, the message of Aids prevention and awareness was still resonant. My favorite, of course, was Estelle’s fitted, black and white tee, which reads “Life is too short, have sex, be safe,” and features a socially responsible, long-legged black girl in a purple trench and gold pumps. Estelle, herself, was dressed easy, breezy in a Matthew Williamson for H&M colorful maxidress (that I HAVE to own) paired casually with a crisp denim jacket and a Chanel bag. Talk-show diva Andre J chose a bodysuit designed by Roisin Murphy, fishnet tights, a fur and a fierce pair of peeptoes. (Love it!)

Check out some tees from the collection below and be sure to buy your fave, available NOW, at your local H&M store. C’mon, it’s for a good cause!!

Sneak Peek: Real Housewives of Atlanta

Okay, so if you have the discipline to wait until the full reunion show airs tomorrow, DON’T press play!

But if you can’t get enough of the foolish, you’re-embarassing-the-family-on-national-TV ignorance that is Real Housewives of Atlanta, then enjoy!

I’ll be having a reunion get-together tomorrow night with my girlfriends to watch the war between Nene “Are you my daddy?” Leakes (who has a fan in…Anderson Cooper?) and “29-year old,” Kim, the chain-smoking country singer. From the previews, Nene looks like she’s going to read her, write her, erase her and then put her back in the library for someone else to read her. I can’t wait! The next morning, I will be wasting precious office time to discuss a play-by-play recap of the events with my co-workers. And I’ll do this all, shamelessly.

P.S. Bravo, thanks for the sneak peek. Now, can you give hairstylist extraordinaire Dwight Eubanks his own show for giving us the soundbites of the season: ‘A fashion show with no fashion? How dreadful.’ and ‘Don’t I look good for 50? My secret? Sex three times a day.’ Ahh, and the list goes on…

Tell us what team you’re on: Team Nene/Lisa or Team Kim/Sheree. Or if you’re busy watching more important TV like the news on CNN and don’t understand what the fuss is, you can sound off here too.
