Ashanti!- was spotted hosting a club event in Vegas [baby]! We love her dress, but we would have liked to see a different color choice. Push the limit! We love it when starlets arrive to events with hot pink gowns to the red carpet and crazy designs...test the waters!! we ♥ it anyway.

Kelly!- Miss Kelly was spotted out and about, looking absolutely fabulous! Is that a Fendi bag? nice!

Miss Lohan!- has been spotted all over NYC which is kinda out of the norm since she's usually in L.A. Lately she's been linked to Brody :) from The Hills (MTV)...mmm not the couple we woulda matched up but hey, he's a cutie!

MG* 'Update Ya': Louis V. Jewels!

Okay so, we all have peeped Pharrell's fashion sense. But, we weren't the only ones who have paid attention to the music icon's wardrobe taste. Designer Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton, digged his swag so much that Louis Vuitton teamed up with the fashion N.E.R.D. to design an exclusive jewelry line for their Spring 2008 collection. Above is our fave pick out of the collection thus far...Who doesn't want their own personal Angel? and the Angel bears a 'flawless' gift!?! We'll take it!

You can read more about the jewelry line Pharrell help to design @ the BBC blog...

MG* 'Update Ya': Marc Jacobs Spring 08

Fashion is art. It's that simple. Marc Jacobs depicts that statement with his latest shoe designs for Spring 2008, which have critics raving! MG* scoped out the spring line and was highly impressed. The fashion forecasts for the Spring 2008 included pastel colors, more feminine trends. But there weren't many fashion gurus that coulda predicted the evolution of the classic pump. Although, there were a lot of critic comparisons to designer Junko Shimada who prouced a similar design, Super Designer Marc Jacobs has literally made it damn near impossible to walk in anyone else's footsteps... These shoes will retail for about $600. It's still Winter, so we definitely have time to plan and save...

MG* New Music Review: Estelle!

Estelle is the best thing smokin'! She's from across the pond and possesses all the UK swag. Her music style is like Lauryn Hill from the Fugee days meets the style of Kelis! As a faithful reader of our blog, MG* is sure you've probably heard her latest single, "Wait a Minute", from our music player to the right ; )--->... Estelle follows up with her next single, "American Boy" featuring Mr. West. It's HOT! and Kanye definitely stepped his game up on this track and it's truly complimented by Estelle's lyrics. You can hear both tracks on her upcoming album debuting in February!

Want more Estelle...hit up her MySpace, it has everything Estelle...

MG* 'Update Ya': Vsmile!

According to Dr. Christine Northrup, You can make your "lower heart smile". Gives a whole new meaning to Vsmile,huh? Haha! We spotted the coolest video clip at our new favorite site Jezebel. It shows Oprah and Dr. Northrup inner smiling! Haha! All you have to do is follow a couple of breathing techniques. We haven't tried it yet, but you try it for yourself...First, 'Tyra smiles with her eyes on ANTM, now this...:)

I [lower] ♥ MG*! haha...

MG* Spy: New Look for 2008

the smaller pics are the before looks...

As you can see, January didn't just mean new year. It also meant a new look for some of your favorite celebs. For Ashlee Simpson and Beyonce, darker hues translate to sultry-incognito beginnings. As for the songstress we always seem to questionably love, Amy Winehouse went for the peroxide-blonde look, and we hear that she dyed it this way "because [she] felt like it"...we couldn't have posed a better reason...

Wanna keep tabs on these chicas personally? Search for their fan sites, you'd be surprised.

MG* 'Update Ya': Sex and the City

Spending time at home recently, MG* had time to catch up on the reruns of Sex and the City, which prompted the curiosity for the movie debut. For those of you like MG*; who breathe Sex and the City, you've probably heard some of the buzz about the Sex and the City movie. We chose not to post info about it before because we honestly didn't want to spoil the plot. But, as you can see that didn't last long, here are the movie pics. The release of the movie is going to be like the discovery of the holy grail for us; unbelievably wonderful...we think we may O.D. on Carrie's wardrobe...can't wait.

The movie is supposed to debut this Spring...

MG* Stylin' Profilin': Jil Sander

Remember that movie 'The Ring'? the one with the creepy little girl? Well Jil Sander definitely takes us there in a fashionably cool way. She transforms traditional apparel shapes with textures and colors, critics say her collection has "purity". Indeed, She's HOT! tell everybody MG* told ya! Lol! She also designs some fierce shoes that also kinda redefines the traditional stiletto! Pictured above is a taste of the Spring/ Summer 2008 collection, we thought it was the coolest, but she has so much more to offer...

MG* Spy!

Nicole n'Joel- are going to be he most interesting parents in 2008. Congrats are in order to the new parents, they gave birth a baby girl who they named, Harlow Winter Kate Madden. That's a mouth full! But its actually kinda cool, we'd love to hear the back story on that. Congrats!

BET Honors- BET recently held a honors award ceremony in Washington, DC. Black Star Power was in full effect with celebrities such Alicia Keys, Dr. Cornell West, Tyra Banks, and so many more. Congrats to all the honorees!

Jessica Simpson
- Ms. Simpson was seen in Hollywood looking naturally fab. Not much else to say about this diva except, 'is this bag a part of the Jessica Simpson accessories collection?' Probably not ;( we still luv ya Jess!

Jay-Z n' Beyonce
- Hip Hop's favorite couple, Jayonce was seen attending a couple of fashion shows in Milan, for Milan fashion week. We like the black hair on Beyonce and Jay always cleans up well. Nice!

MG* New Music Review: Trina!

Miss Trina is back and according to her new single she's 'Single Again'. MG* has definitely had Trina on the radar lately with all the new buzz pics that have been floating around, she looks great! It looks like her recent breakup from rapper Lil' Wayne has done her some good. As for the new single, we can't admit that we were feeling right away, but it didn't take long for us to start feeling it, it's kinda cool. Maybe this is the vibe we can expect from her next LP "The Baddest B!#h 2", set to hit stores Feb. 12. We posted the behind the scenes footage from her latest video and you can keep tabs on the 'Baddest B!#h' on her MySpace...
