PICTURES OF BEYONCE PHOTOSHOOT FOR L'OFFICIEL BLACKFACE.

Links to this post

 L’OFFICIEL is very proud to present its March issue featuring Beyoncé in African-inspired dresses and jewelry by top designers, including Gucci, Azzedine Alaia, Fendi, Pucci, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Rodarte, Dolce & Gabbana, Cartier and Lanvin.



Designer Tina Knowles, who is also Beyoncé’s mother, created a one of a kind couture piece. The designs are all reflective of the African influence on fashion this season.

Miss Knowles poses with royal allure. A queen, a goddess, Beyoncé is a bombshell beauty with a divine voice. We’re thrilled she’s opening a season of celebrating the 90th anniversary of L’Officiel de la Mode.
The series was conceived as using art and fashion in paying homage to African queens.
Beyoncé mentioned the artist Fela Kuti in the interview as one of her musical inspirations. It was later misquoted as the inspiration for the shoot. We would like to clarify that it is not the case.
As for the artistic makeup, the inspiration came from several African rituals during which paint is used on the face. We find the images beautiful and inspiring.

L’Officiel would like to thank Beyoncé for her outstanding contribution to this celebration of African influences in Fashion.














TWITTER BEEF : RIHANNA AND CIARA, WHO IS THE QUEEN?

Rihanna and Ciara went head to head last night via the social networking site, Twitter. Apparently during CiCi’s guest appearance on E! Fashion Police, she said some not so nice things about Rih-Rih’s attitude that didn’t sit so well with the Bajan princess, sparking the following response:




And yes… you already know Ciara responded!
 

You’ve got to admit that Rihanna totally won that battle! The two must have eventually spoken offline because later it wall all hearts & roses between the two as they publicly made up.

BODE GEORGE HAS BEEN RELEASED TODAY.

Links to this post


FROM A BLACKBERRY BROADCAST

Fellow Nigerians, as we speak, Bode George, erstwhile and convicted chairman of Nigeria Port Authority is being released from jail after serving out his 2 year jail sentence. Ordinarily this would not attract any attention but for the pomp and fanfare that is being currently displayed by some shameless people as if he's coming back from somewhere else but jail. PDP flags are flying all over the place and I gathered that even Mr President has said his party, the PDP, will send a high powered delegation to welcome him. This has shown that neither Jonathan or PDP is interested in stamping out corruption in this country. It is clear now that only the citizens of this country can free themselves from the shackles of corruption and under-development. Tell everybody you know to do whatever they can legitimately to frustrate this shameless display of insensitivity. Educate people in your neighbourhood that this is wrong and must not be allowed to pass. The message this vipers hate sending to the youths of this country is that corruption pays and it is ok to steal public funds and abuse position of trust. We cannot let this message be  passed without doing what we can to show that it is wrong. God Bless Nigeria.

Basically, the live broadcast of his release from prison to church for the thanksgiving was shown on LTV 8 and AIT.

GINO IS BACK WITH A NEW SINGLE IM SO FLY FT NAETOC AND YQ.

The Man|The MC|The Music

For rap music lovers, this is more than good news. After a brief hiatus from the rap game, rapper Gino is back in with a new single titled “I’m So Fly” feat. YQ and Naeto C. In 2005, Gino revolutionized the game when he dropped his instant classic video ‘No Be God’ and later released his debut album
(which many regard as being one of the best rap albums in Nigeria) Pain Plus Work.  The album also generated another hit Farabale which was a club hanger.

While many thought the rapper took time off, he was actually in the booth taking his time to record a body of work that will be rated flawless. With such high standards it is said that Gino has scrapped songs worth two albums. Now satisfied with what he has, the C.E.O of MOBB Records is finally set to drop his highly anticipated sophomore album.

Kicking his re-entrance is this new single which was produced by the *SoundCity and Future Awards Producer of the Year*, Sossick. Gino’s second album is scheduled to drop later in the year.

The family of 10-month-old Enioluwa Odegbaike who went missing 11 days ago has called on Nigerians to pray for the return of their baby because other efforts to find the child has proved abortive.
A member of the family who refused to give his name, said that the mother of the baby remains traumatized by the experience.
