VIDEO GLAM: Rihanna’s "Rude Boy" and Beyonce and Alicia Keys’ "Put it in a Love Song"

Hey Glamazons!

It seems Rihanna and Beyonce left the Grammy’s and headed straight back to work (do these girls ever really break?!). Both pop stars are gearing up for the release of videos for their latest singles: Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” and Alicia Keys’ “Put it in a Love Song” featuring Beyonce.

We can always expect some spectacular fashion in pop music videos to keep our eyes glued to the screen. While Rihanna takes a less high-end, more Jamaican street vibe in her “Rude Boy” video (she’s giving me Eastern Parkway and I’m not mad about it), Alicia Keys plays dress up in Brazil in a gorgeous Boxing Kitten outfit and bold yellow sandals.

I LOVE the new look on Alicia; the vibrant colors are the perfect accent to the favelas in Brazil (Somebody take me there…tomorrow). Boxing Kitten tweeted that Alicia is wearing the Billie top and Althea skirt.

I am a huge fan of the Boxing Kitten line, designed by Maya Lake, which mixes spirited African prints with demure Civil Rights era silhouettes. Celebs like Fergie and Solange just can’t get enough of the gorgeous pieces, which are perfect for young, funky stars who love to stand out. Check out my profile of Boxing Kitten for POSHGLAM for more information on the brand.

P.S. Speaking of Solange, can’t wait to see what Beyonce turns up in!

UPDATE: Beyonce kills the game in a Boxing Kitten jumpsuit! (Heading to the gym.)

Oh and Miss Rihanna in a white/black graphic jumpsuit on top of a zebra? Yeah, that’s pretty amazing.

Not to mention her supersexy gold Nippies nipple covers from Bristols 6 (www.bristols6.com) that she rocks under a gold jumpsuit from new “It” designer, LaQuan Smith. I met LaQuan at a party in NYC and had to stop him because of some amazing studded leggings he was rocking. Ever since then, I’ve been hooked on his fierce, edgy one-of-a-kind style. Check out his website for more great pieces: http://laquansmith.com.


Check out pics from her “Rude Boy” shoot below and let me know what you think of the looks. Glam or a Sham?!

Since two days is way too long to wait for the debut of Rih’s video on VEVO (insert sarcasm here), I included a short snippet that leaked on the internet today. Hauteness!

Video Glam: Make Me Janet Jackson

Hey Glamazons,

I am obsessed with Janet’s new single and vid, Make Me, off her Number Ones album. The black and white video is the perfect blend of retro and modern with it’s signature Janet-esque dance sequences and funky interpretation of beauty and fashion trends.

Janet’s Todd Lynn metallic shoulder pads, her dancer’s worker boots, her amazing, silver dangling earrings, her pompadour hairstyle and dark lips = the stuff of fashion/beauty legend. And I can’t wait to learn every dance move.

Check out the amazing dance sequences and looks below and tell me what you think.

Glam or a Sham: Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s Video Phone Remix

Hey Glamazons!!
The internet is abuzz with praise and criticism for the latest video from pop Queen, Beyonce, featuring the incredible Lady Gaga. While we’re still partial to Lady Gaga’s amazing Bad Romance vid, we adore Beyonce’s outfit changes, the dance sequence and both ladies’ phenomenal physiques. Hubba Hubba, indeed.
Still, there’s been a lot of flack about the video, which only leaked yesterday night. Among the many complaints, here were a few that stood out:
-Lady Gaga isn’t “herself,” in the video but a white version of Beyonce. With one line, one outfit and one scene, why is she even there?
-Beyonce’s in-your-face, sex-soaked moves are plain trashy, cheap and reminiscent of “Check on It.” (Someone even said: Strippers should sue for copyright infringement). Even more say it’s irresponsible to her younger fans.
-Beyonce swagger jacked Rihanna’s edgy/dominatrix look.



Hmm…do you agree or disagree with the points above? Check the video out below and give us your verdict. Glam or a Sham?

Video Glam: Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance

Hey Glamazons,

Who else besides Lady Gaga can be glamorous, romantic, dark, futuristic and sexy all in the same video?
Yes, Madonna but that was circa 1984.
Newly crowned Glamazon of the 21st century, Lady Gaga, debuted a mesmerizing video for her ‘Bad Romance’ single with dance sequences, visuals and special effects that are out of this world!!
But let’s talk about the fashions. First, bear witness to the first time any celeb has worn Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 shoes. Yes, those shoes that look impossible to walk in (more on that later). Lady Gaga danced in them!

AND the fur coat and Carrera Champion shades she wore (below) are a fashionista’s dream—that only retail for only $120 at Solstice Sunglass boutiques. Fabulous!
Check out the vid, which received the Glamazon Seal of Approval, and tell me that you love it! (P.S. So sad I had to work late and missed her listening party last night – her music is as captivating as her videos, a true entertainer! <— yes, I'm borderline obsessed).
Kisses,
