    The beautiful musician Alicia keys looks amazing in her new photo shoot for the June 2011 issue of W magazine. Her photos were taken by Mario Sorrenti, Alicia looks sexy in her Alexander McQueen outfits as she poses showing off her crimson lips.

    “I just wanted to be who I was, which was like so many other girls I knew. We grew up in the city, had a hard edge and obstacles to overcome, but we were still young and beautiful. I didn’t want to be all dressed up, all made up — I wanted to be myself, which hadn’t been done before. I was a young girl with very strong ideas but no experience. I just knew that everything else I was doing was wrong — that all the suggestions weren’t what was in my mind, they weren’t what it was meant to be.” said Alicia.

    I think Alicia Keys looks beautiful in her photo shoot. What do you think?

    The event launch of a perfume im memory of pop icon Michael Jackson caused troubles as his father distanced himself from a Frenchman behind the deal and a lawsuit disputed their rights. Joe Jackson signed a contract with French fragrance enterpreneur Franck Rouas earlier this year to launch eau de parfums “Jackson’s Tribute” for women.

    The scents were due to be presented to the world at a conference Thursday in a night club at the Caesars Palace Hotel Casino in Las Vegas with socialite Paris Hilton and several Jackson family members. However, the event descended into chaos when Joe Jackson backed briefly by his daughter LaToya made it clear he wanted to avoid any physical contact wth Rouas, head of the perfume company Julian Rouas Paris.

    “ I don’t like the way he does things. But the intiative to creat the scents was mine and that plan goes ahead,” Joe Jackson said, adding that he did not know when the 50ml bottles would go on sale.

    Fergie looks great showing her fierce side at a photo shot for her third Allure cover.( Photos:Allure)

    Fergie was having the time of her life at a photo shot for her third Allure cover. Her gorgeous photographs showing her fierce side were taken by Norman Jean Roy. She will pose for the Allure July cover. During the interview Fergie opened up about her beauty and confirmed that she has never had plastic surgery. After performing on American Idol, many speculated she had a lot of work done, but not so.

    “I did two major drastic things, which is hair to the side—it was the first time—and the big neon lip. I wanted to try something different, and all of a sudden it was this big backlash. People were saying ‘It’s a fake Fergie.’ I heard about some ridiculous amount of money that I spent on my face, which I think is absolutely insane.” She said.

    Well Fergie looks great in these photos and whatever she did she looks amazingly beautiful.

    Trends in NeckTies

    12. June 2011

    A necktie is an essential accessory for any man to have. A necktie makes a man look elegant, sophisticated and compassed. For any men, the tie is almost a necessity and for an almost equal number, a form of fashion strangulation. To find the right kind of tie that works with your outfit, go for silk or silky finish. It has a professional look with a touch of class to it.

    You are not restricted to wearing it only one way either; you could try different types of knots. There is the Windsor knot famously referred to as British- of course, from the house of royalty and is the most common form. You could achieve the more defined triangle or go for the American style which is long and roundish. At the moment, slim ties are in trendy. They have a slight, almost invisible taper and are not wide and triangular at the base. It is also a great way to get in a new look for your ties and play around with not just the knots, but the shapes as well.

    It is a wise thing to always try to match the color of the tie with the shirt one. For patterned shirts, it’s best to go for plain ties and for patterned ties and vice versa. For an edgier look, go for thin neckties.
