Hello Glamazonians! I know you lots are going to thank me greatly for this post. I’m minding my own business getting ready for bed when a friend of mine sends me the cover of Idris Elba‘s Maxim Magazine cover. I immediately dropped my phone on the ground from the steam my phone generating. Okay, I digress. But seriously that is one beautiful man! Maxim’s new editor-in-chief Kate Lanphear told Racked,
“We’ve never in US Maxim history had a man on the cover solo, this is the very first time, and there was no one else in the world more badass than Idris.”
Hello Glamazonians! It’s been exactly a year since I posted my ‘model of the month’ so I decided to resurrect it from the drafts section. This month’s model of the month is none other than the fiercest woman I know, Inca Nolani. Did I mention she is also my partner-in-crime/sister-friend? While Inca is slaying photo-shoots left and right, she is also booking advertisements and appearing on Uncover Papua, a docu-series in Indonesia. Well my sister-friend decided to send me shots from her recent shoot for Swimwear by Musim and well I’ll let you be the judge of them.
Hello Glamazonians! If you’re a make-up hoarder like me, you’ve most likely heard of the Mac- Giambattista Valli collaboration. I’ve had my eye on these shades for a while so color me excited when I saw that one of my fave beauty sites, Temptalia did their swatch and reviews for them. The colours are Bianca B, Margherita, Tats, Charlotte, Eugenie. Bianca B is a very pale pink non wearable shade that doesn’t tickle my fancy. On my very brown skin, it’ll look wayyyy too harsh. The more I stare at Margherita, the more I’m convincing myself to get it. My faves are Tats, Charlotte, and Eugenie. How beautiful are they?!?! And the packaging alone makes me want them even more. Now I just need to set an alarm for July 9th before they’re all gone from the MAC website.
Hello Glamazonians! I am here to do my due diligence which is to share with you all the hits and misses from the Independent Spirit Awards red carpet. First and foremost, Queen Kerry Washington. That Face. No wonder she was called Helen of Troy on Scandal, well Olivia Pope, her character was. But since she is the owner of that face, she gets the compliment. Other fab starlets on the carpet were Olivia Munn, Jessica Chastain and Emmy Rossum.
Drop by Monday for my rundown of the Oscars red carpet.
Hello Glamazonians! The Golden Globes red carpet were full of fashion do and don’ts that I am here to share with you all. Queen Kerry Washington blessed us with her appearance in a metallic Mary Katrantzou gown with a sweetheart neckline and cinched bodice. I wasn’t quite sure of the length, but after a while I ended up loving it. The next person I gagged over, was Amal Alamuddin. May I go on record to state that I want to be Amal when I grow up! She glowed on the arms of her new hubby George Clooney while in a stunning one shoulder Dior gown with white gloves- gasp! The interweb was torn on whether they hated or liked it, but you know I couldn’t get enough of the look. Other fashion divas I loved were Catherine Zeta-Jones in a red-hot Angel Sanchez gown, Sienna Miller in a Miu Miu number and Felicity Jones in Dior.
P.S this post is dedicated to the lovely Mikaila Havener!
Hello Glamazonians! I’m back from hiding. Temporarily of course. You’re probably wondering why I chose this time to gossip with all you glams, well it’s hell week. What’s hell week, you wonder? It’s exam week, here at uni, and since everyone is literally going mad with studying I decided to take a little break from drowning in Accounting and Biology and entertain myself with the annual lingerie show. The models looked absolutely beautiful with no flaw in sight. From Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss‘ strut down the catwalk, to Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio‘s showing of the $2million bras, there was no shortage of entertainment at this year’s show. Oh and Ed Sheeran and Hozier performed also but I have a feeling you all weren’t really paying much attention to them although mum absolutely LOVED Ed’s performance alongside telling me how small models have gotten nowadays. LOL.
P.S Don’t you guys just love Taylor & Karlie’s ensembles?

P.P.S GOOD LUCK TO ALL MY COLLEGE STUDENTS TAKING EXAMS THIS WEEK. MAY YOU ALL GET PASS MARKS IN EVERYTHING!!!!!!
Hello Glamazonians! I decided to spotlight models on Fiercely Glamazonian once a month, and what better way to kick it off with than to start with my favourite model of the moment. Rose Mesina, who also happens to be a close friend of mine, is with New Faces Models Agency. Rose recently walked the catwalk for Saks Jandel as they hosted Reed Krakoff for an intimate showing of his fall 2014 collections.

Hello Glamazonians! I have thoroughly missed you all! It has been almost four months since I have updated this blog. I blame it on school, but now that class is no longer in session, I completely blame my summer job. And my social life and my nonstop Netflix binge sessions. Let’s get on with it, shall we glams?
Ever since American Eagle’s lingerie label, Aerie, released their no photo-shop AerieReal Campaign, brands have been trying to recreate such magic. Well I think Bongo just recreated that magic through the beautiful Vanessa Hudgens. Love the clothes, will definitely be checking them out in stores!
P.S A BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO QUEEN KERRY WASHINGTON ON HER EMMY AWARD NOMINATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
