Rapper Eve has being missing in action for some time now. However, she is back in full affect and she will appear along side Drew Barrymore in the upcoming comedy/drama called “Whip It!” Eve will play as a roller derby diva named “Rosa Sparks.” The movie will follow a small-town Texas girl who finds her identity through a local roller derby league. The film is adapted from the book “Derby Girl,” about the life of author Shauna “Maggie Mayhem” Cross of the L.A. Derby Dolls. Not only will Drew Barrymore play a character in the movie its also her directorial debut. Filming for the movie will begin in March of 2009.

In other Eve news, Eve has also relaunched her fabulous clothing line FETISH. In 2004, Eve made a statement to the press saying, “[Fetish] was a very juniors line and I didn’t want to wear it,” Eve said to reporters. They were like ‘more branding, we need “Fetish” on the chest, give us some rhinestones.’ And I was like, ‘No, I’m not wearing that.” Now, word is (and according to Eve who recently appeared on The View for a small fashion show this week), the concept of the line will be more grown up. To reflect her style. I’m excited because I still have a pair of Fetish jeans that I love very much. They fit just right! You can find “Fetish” at select Macy’s locations, drjays.com & manalive.com and congrats to Eve on everything. I love seeing women evolve.


A look that was originally made super hot in the spring has now made its way to the fall in a fiery flash of fashion fire…leather/lame’ leggings! Who woulda thunk it? Surprisingly, this disco fever look has translated well into the millennium. Check out who’s been rocking the look lately:

MC Lyte at the VH-1 Hip Hop Honors keeping it fresh and young with an off-the-shoulder top and platform heels.

Rihanna wears her leggings with feathers with a bustier, cropped blazer, and ultra-long necklace…always the alternative look…but mostly fab!

Eve, looking rather splenderiffic after coming out of fashion hiding. She completes her rock glam look with a gold lame top and black booties.

The epitome of maternal style, Jennifer Lopez, pulling the look together (while preggers, no less)with a sweater, black top, skinny patent leather belt, and open-toed strappy heels.

Queen of the party scene, Lindsay Lohan, wearing the black/white look with Mary Jane heels.

Kelly Rowland rocking it with black blouse with blouson sleeves and patent leather calf-length boots.

One of my favorite hot mamas, Heidi Klum, adding a pop of color with an Elizabeth & James mini dress. I still love that YSL croc tote!

Christina Milian rocking the look with a sheer gauzy top and black (suede looking) knee boots.

To get the look, you first need a pair of hot leather (looking ;0) leggings. Hot Topic and American Apparel have some very affordable choices:

Hot Topic Lame Leggings at $18.99

American Apparel Leggings at $44.00

You can use the celeb looks as a guide to finish your look. The most difficult (and boldest) task is finding the leggings. Now that you have them, be creative with your look…and keep it strictly stylish!

Yours in style,
