Our favorite former Spice Girl besides Victoria Beckham and favorite X-Factor judge has been on it with her fashion game lately. Mel B. She chooses the right pieces to highlight those curves in a classy way. She is not over the top with her hair and makeup and she lets the clothes speak.

Look One-Office Chic- I love pencil skirts because, when the fit is right and with a  nice pair of heels, it shows that you mean business. Mel B. paired her skirt with black pumps, beige button up, yellow birkin, and a fly pair of shades. This is a great fall look. Since it’s still summer I would opt for a pencil skirt that’s not leather and a short sleeve or sleeveless blouse. In the office I’d throw on a blazer for a more professional look.

Look Two-Date Night- This look is the perfect balance of sexiness and class. She’s showing her killer legs while covered up top. I love lace because it is super feminine and classy. The lace mini paired with the pumps are great for a chic evening look.

Look Three-Bold and Beautiful- Hot pink dresses make the world a better place. No really they do. Well maybe not all, but this dress that Mel B. is rocking on the red carpet of the X-Factor auditions does. I’m all for neutrals, but to spice up your look you need color and that’s exactly what Mel B. did.

What’s your favorite look from this week’s Style Files?

Here is a recap of some of our favorite looks from the Oscars. This is the biggest red carpet event during award season and so we expect nothing but the best!

Viola Davis, Kerry Washington, and Jada Pinkett Smith were among our favorites during the red carpet. I love the 1920s style waves that Viola is rocking and the color of her dress. Kerry Washington is not letting the bun in the oven stop her fashion game. She is glowing in this gown! Jada Pinkett Smith surprised me with this look. It is sleek and sexy. The color has me anticipating spring more and more.

oscars10I don’t think Charlize Theron ever misses a fashion beat. She brings it every time!

Pictures152I was on the fence about Julia Roberts’ look, but I actually like the texture and lace. I love Karen O’s deep neckline with the jewel encrusted pendant. The dress flatters her figure well and you can never go wrong with black.

Pictures151I think Sandra Bullock is so underrated. She is always classy. Kate Hudson looks amazing as well and both of these ladies are setting trends for the spring with side swept curls. I thought I liked Angelina Jolie’s dress, but now that I’m looking at it again, I’m not that crazy about it…oh well.

Last but not least, I have to revisit Lupita Nyong’o’s look :)

Who rocked your favorite look for the Oscars?

Lupita Nyong’o definitely deserves her own post. Not only because she looked stunning in her “Cinderella-esque” Prada gown in “Nairobi Blue.” She said,

“It’s a blue that reminds me of Nairobi, and so I wanted to have a little bit of home.

This show stopping red carpet look was only the beginning. Lupita also won an Oscar for best supporting actress in “12 Years a Slave.” This has been a true fairytale for her and she deserves it all. It is great to see a woman of color so highly regarded for her great works. Often times African and  African-American are perceived in a negative light because of stereotypes perpetuated in society, she defies them all. She is well-spoken, well-dressed, talented, refined and simply amazing.

The Red Carpet at the 45th Annual was in overdrive this weekend as some of our favorite actors, singers, activists, and more pulled all of the stops with their stunning looks. Take a look at some of our favorite looks from the evening.

Gabrielle Union, Tika Sumpter, Tatyana Ali

Naomie Harris, Tika Sumpter, Tatyana Ali

These three ladies were my personal favorites for the evening. I love the gold and champagne color combinations that these ladies have chosen. The dresses are sexy, yet feminine.

Ledisi, Regina Hall, Nia Long

Ledisi, Regina Hall, Nia Long

I love the colors of Ledisi and Nia Long’s dresses. The blue is very vibrant, and the green is bold. Regina Hall’s gown is very simple and it goes to show that a little goes a long way.

Oprah, Kerry Washington, Lupita Nyongo

Oprah, Kerry Washington, Lupita Nyongo

Now these ladies here, I’m on the fence about their looks. I like the color of Oprah’s gown, as well as Lupita Nyongo, but I’m not a fan of Oprah’s dress at all. Lupita’s dress is the best out of these three, but maybe the hairstyle is to Avant Garde for me….I’m still on the fence with her. As much as I love Kerry Washington, I have not been a huge fan of her maternity wear.

Who rocked the red carpet at the 45th Annual NAACP Image Awards?

This winter has been recording breaking for the amount of snow fall that we’ve experienced in New York City in years. Last time I checked we were at about 55 inches of snow. The total inches of snow that we’ve had last year was at 25 inches and we are not done yet. I’m so over the snow. I have not been wearing anything really nice and exciting because the snow, slush, ice, and salt won’t allow me to be great. This weather is so depressing, but it won’t last for long. Without winter we can’t appreciate spring and the four ladies above have me anticipating one of my favorite seasons.

Regina Hall

Regina Hall

Regina Hall looks radiant in this cream lace dress with scalloped edges paired with strappy platform sandals. Lace is a staple for spring and cream is a great color.

Solange Knowles

Solange Knowles

During New York Fashion Week, Solange killed the street style and slayed the front row. For spring you can try a color block trench coat similar to Solanges wool coat. Let’s not forget about the white pump and light pink suit. Borrow this look from the boys and put a feminine touch on it with a dainty color.

Kat Graham

Kat Graham

I’m loving Kat Graham’s all white look. The white fitted dress with white pumps, and white overcoat is so clean. I love the texture on the dress as well.

Lianne La Havas

Lianne La Havas

This might be my favorite look!. I’m working on my legs now so they can look this amazing in shorts come spring and summer. I love the soft pink and white combination with the loose fitting paper bag shorts and satiny soft pink blouse. This is a great look for a spring brunch with the girls. The white open-toe ankle strap platforms add a perfect touch to this look. It feminine, romantic, and modern.
