Lavish Music Pick: Seu Jorge and Almaz

I happily stumbled upon this Brazilian group (whose first name is pronounced Sur) in my quest for the perfect summer soundtrack. The foursome- Seu Jorge, Pupillo on drums, Lúcio Maiaon on guitar, and António Pinto on bass– get summer and samba just right. Seu Jorge’s baritone voice over the smooth, jazzy, and Portuguese-infused rhythms of classics you love–Everybody Loves the Sunshine, Rock With You–is the perfect backdrop to a summer sunset on a rooftop with friends and a fresh caipirinha.

Listen to Everybody Loves the Sunshine

Check out the band’s website here.

The Hotness: Lace Booties

Christian Louboutin Lace Bootie, $830 (regularly $1785)

I saw Jessica Alba at the couture fashion shows in Paris wearing a sweet Chanel dress. But it was the shoes that took it the next level. Definitely cravable, n’est ce pas?

Some Summer Fabulousness: Kelly Rowland

I’m posting the uber-fab album promo photos of Kelly Rowland just because. Whether or not she puts out a hot album, she does good face.

CelebStyle: Gabby Union, Venus Williams

I’m loving the tribal feel of this dress Gabby Union wore to a charity event with her fiance Dwayne Wade…

This looks isn’t exactly the same, but it has a fun graphic look that I adore right now.

And can somebody *please* tell me where I can find a cute babydoll dress like the one Venus Williams wore to her sister Serena’s ESPN house party? 

 I must have!

Who needs Vogue Africa anyway?

 Vogue Africa: Not happening says Conde Nast

Fashion photographer Mario Epanya from Cameroon was unsuccessful in convincing Conde Nast to publish an African edition of Vogue. So enthusiastic was Epanya about the proposal that he submitted faux covers to whet the appetites of Vogue editors. They’re a little “off-brand” but you get the point.

Said the photog on his Facebook page:

DEAR ALL. The Wait is over. Condé Nast said NO to an African license of VOGUE. So this is the last cover. Enjoy, but it’s a beginning of something,”

What a damn shame. But then again, maybe not. Maybe we don’t need an Westernized version of “what’s haute” since African textiles, artisty, and style have dominated the runways time and time again.
