Trending Bridal Style for 2015
It's the time of the year again where couple are looking forward to tie the knot. Spring and summer is by far the busiest season for brides. From wedding planning to honeymoon, their bucket is pack with tons of to-dos. If you're getting married this year, I've compiled a list of growing trends. Whether you plan to rent or buy a dress, consider these styles. 1. Sweetheart Neckline This never seem to go out of fashion. This sweet and sexy neckline is more modest than a tube dress. The best part is it looks stunning on almost every size. Definitely, a keeper! 2. Off-White Dress I'm seeing more and more brides opt for a subtle peach and off-white dress for weddings. It's something more dramatic than white but still remains the classic look. Perfect for Spring and Summer lightening. 3. Open Back Beauty Want to add a touch of sensuality while looking sophisticated? The open-back design is the winner. The exposed back design is a compromise between modern and modes without disturbing the crowd. 4. A Touch of Vintage The vintage bride with headpieces is a growing trend last year and this year it will continue to remain strong. The 20s inspired gowns are sexy, low-key and perfect for a boho-bride. 5. Texture Update Want to stick with a classic design and be set apart from all the other brides? A subtle texture with a touch of individuality is the perfect way to go. Look at the tube for example. 6. Tulle Tulle This is a better upgrade of the giant princess-style gown that you've seen in the past. I'm especially drawn by the bottom half design - multiple layers of tulle fabric.

Barbie Scores Big Time With Zendaya Inspired Barbie Doll
Kudos to Mattel for recognizing true beauty. It wasn't that long ago that Zendaya was getting ridiculed for her 2015 Oscar's look consisting of a gorgeous dress and a head full of faux dreadlocks. While some believed the Disney star looked absolutely stunning, others including Giuliana Rancic [see clip here] had a lot to say. Rancic took to televisions popular Fashion Police mentioning that the young star "looked as if she'd smell like weed and patchouli oil" and let's just say the controversy was in the media for awhile. Zendaya was honored at the Rock 'N Royals concert this past Saturday benefitting VH1's Save The Music Foundation in Los Angeles. It's so amazing that it hasn't even been one full year since the comment sparked controversy and the creator of Barbie has taken a negative and turned it into a positive creating a replica Barbie of Zendaya's Oscar look. Talk about an amazing moment in history. There have been a couple previous African American women who had a Barbie created after them including both Brandy and Raven Symone, but there is something extremely liberating about this Zendaya Barbie. Maybe it's the fact that it's a way to say society doesn't know beauty or maybe it is a memorable reminder that with every negative comes a positive. According to Zendaya, the doll means so much more than just a commemoration of her popular outfit. She says, "When I was little, I couldn't find a Barbie that looked like me, my ... how times have changed."
