CelebrityStyle File: The 2013 Grammy’s!

The 2013 Grammy’s had some great moments; LL hosted, JT is officially back (and looking better than ever, I might add), and Prince showed up with an entirely diamond-encrusted cane.
And among all the Grammy Award winners and show-stopping performances, there were some fabulous fashion finds.
Here are some of our stand-outs from the night, including some risk-takers and rule-breakers!


Red Done Right: Rihanna and Natasha Bedingfield put the red carpet to shame in crimson, floor-length gowns, completing their look with subtle make-up, and loose waves.


Babes in Black: Whether dressed up or barely dressed at all, these two divas always look fab. Beyonce kept it cool & trendy in a color block suit, meanwhile, J. Lo left little to the imagination in Anthony Vaccarello.


Southern Show-Stopper: Along with an amazing performance, Carrie Underwood simply slayed in Roberto Cavalli! We couldn’t take our eyes off the intricate bodice and Carrie’s sultry look.


Pretty in Prints: The always adorable Adele ditched the dark and went for a bold patterned dress, and Alexa Chung was the picture of perfection in Valentino.


Brilliant Bodices: Kelly Rowland looked sexy in strategic cut-outs, and Allison Williams hung up her preppy ‘Girls’ digs for a beautiful beaded gown.

And the Winner Is…: Taylor Swift looked almost reminiscent of a Grecian goddess in a mythical J. Mendel gown that was simply unmatched. Taylor has looked nothing shy of phenomenal as of late, and we can’t wait to see what she shows up in next!

Alright, fashionistas, who do you think was a red carpet cutie, and who hit the wrong note?

MusicLWP: Zombie-lievable!

In keeping with our ode to ‘Walking Dead,’ this week’s playlist is all about an epic undead soundtrack.

Uh-oh. Do you hear that distinct leg dragging?
That scary groaning?
Don’t just stand there… bust a move!

CelebrityLWP: Just Justin

He’s back, ladies & gentlemen.
That smooth croon! Those baby blues! Those once curly locks!
This week’s playlist is an homage to everyone’s favorite studly Southern gentleman: Justin Timberlake.
Why, you ask? Because it’s JT! Enough said.

LuLu*s & J. Timberlake, now how heavy is that?

MusicListen Up! Foxygen Releases New Album Today!

If you haven’t heard of Foxygen, you’re in for a 21st century treat!

The newest babes in musicland, Sam France and Jonathan Rado (a mere 22 years old apiece) have come in swinging some really groovy tunes with their promising album “We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic”. These mini masters are standing on the cutting edge of indie folk rock with a dreamy, Kinks-influenced California sound that’s been accurately accused of  “…slamming together the archetypal flower children of the 60s and the archetypal ADHD vapidity of our recent generations.”

Foxygen

Following a short European tour, Foxygen will kick off their 2013 album release in the states in the Great American Music Hall in homage to their track “San Francisco”. Check out this video, then click here to listen to the entire album!
