Would You Dare To Wear?

Leighton Meester's lace Marchesa jumpsuit. Do you love it or hate it?

I'm pretty in to it. It would be nice if it left a little more to the imagination, but the sweet yet naughty edginess of black lace always appeals to me. Even though it should be too much, the vintage, almost burlesque sexiness makes it work. It's different than anything I've seen lately, while still remaining really current.
I don't know if I'd ever have the cajones to wear it, but my inner skank is giving this two thumbs up.

Who Wore It Best? Ciara VS. Kim K.

Kim Kardashian and Ciara both wear a dress from Carven's Fall 2010 line. Kim in Paris, Sept. 16th, Ciara in NYC Oct. 25th.

Damn! Down to the shoes and everything! I honestly want to hand this one to Ciara, as a curvy girl myself I know sometimes all that ruffle and poof just makes you look a bit too "fluffy".
However, Something inside me just won't allow me to let Ciara to get away with this one...even the same shoes? A month and a half later? They're friends, they hang out! She should have damn well known what this would look like!
I'm all for sharing a deal with a friend, but they don't need deals, and this is the red carpet we're talking about. I'm saying, what part of the game is scrap collecting? Pure chickenheadry. The dress isn't even that hot to be digging through your homegirls salvation army bags like that.

Kim, you win this round.

Racism and Cupcakes?

This controversial Duncan Hines commercial has been getting pulled after multiple complaints that the advertisement is blatantly racist.
It probably is, but it seems more ignorant and insensitive to me than anything. I don't really think there was a conspiracy to hold people down through use of cupcakes. What do you think?

Happy Thanksgiving!

This turkey is fierce!

Happy Thanksgiving all! We know it's late but we've been on vacay. We hope you all enjoyed this holiday as much as we did and ate to your hearts content!
However, if you're feeling that this holiday celebrates a tragedy in American history, (which it does, but don't they all) then we invite you to enjoy this PSA of sorts from Burning Spear.
See? There's always something to enjoy here at SGHI! Happy Thanksgiving!
