“The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” – Monica In Gucci

Monica new album “Still Standing” is currently #1 on the Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B charts and is #2 (under Justin Bieber’s “My World 2.0″) on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

Monica not only continues to promote her new album , but she also continues to show us that she has great style.

She looked stunning as she performed her latest single “Everything to Me” on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” this week.

Her Gucci Spring 2010 black dress had cut-out details on the waist which was accented with the Gucci trademark metal embroidery.

I love Monica’s sensible non-try-hard/’look what I can afford’ approach to fashion.

It’s really refreshing for an R&B diva.

“Still Standing” Promotional Tour – Monica In Alexander Wang & Balmain

It’s been a very busy week for Monica as the singer currently on a promotional tour for her new album “Still Standing” which was release yesterday.

Despite only being on sale for one day, she’s already on course to reach the #1 spot on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop chart this week.

The singer delighted fans with an in-store “Meet and Greet” in Atlanta yesterday.

With her trademark crop she wore an Alexander Wang belted cardigan from the Spring 2010 collection.

The cardigan has quilted leather trim at shoulders, which is the same detail that appears on the Alexander Wang dress Rihanna wore recently.

Monica also appeared on BET’s 106 & Park this week as a co-hosted with Terrence J.

The 29-year-old R&B veteran performed her new single ‘Everything To Me’ live on the show.

She sported an edgy look which included boots, lace-up leather pants and a Balmain denim jacket.

I’m sure Alex Curran already has this jacket in her closet.

Runway To “Everything to Me” Music Video – Monica In Alexander McQueen

On February 8, Monica shot the promo for her video “Everything to Me” which will be the first single from her new album “Still Standing” which is due for release on March 23rd.

One of the main looks for her video sees her wearing a poufy sleeved red gown from the late Alexander McQueen’s Pre-Fall 2009 collection.

I just love the detail on the back.

Monica has long been an admirer of Alexander McQueen, as she’s worn looks by the late designer many times before.

According the clapper board, this shoot took place just 3 days before the designer tragically passed away.

In another scene she wears an Alexander McQueen look from the Fall 2009 collection.

This blouse with a rosette detail formed part of the hounds-tooth theme which dominated this collection.

I loved this blouse and I glad that Monica has worn this fabulous piece, pairing it with a black pencil skirt.

After Alexander McQueen’s death Monica released a statement which said.

“My new video “Everything To Me,” features several exclusive pieces from Alexander McQueen, a beautiful reflection of his artistic spirit and love for fashion. I sincerely and lovingly dedicate my video to Alexander McQueen and his unforgettable legacy.”

I’m working on a post for McQueen’s final collection which I will post next week.

2009 Soul Train Awards

Keri Hilson looked stunning and statuesque wearing a Dolce & Gabbana satin ruched dress with a peek-a-boo lace panel.

I love her strappy black sandals.

She was one of the best dresses at this event.

Kelly Price opted for a super casual look of a black cold-shouldered top paired with jeans.

Tamia was by far my favourite at this event glowing in a coral asymmetrical belted dress, which she paired with nude heels an a gold clutch.

Deborah Cox opted for a silver studded look which really didn’t suit her.

I have one word for Keisha Knight Pulliam…WOW.

I will always see her as little Rudy Huxtable.

Melanie Fiona wore a cute silver dress with a lot of draping on the hips.

Her dress was paired with matching heels.

LeToya Luckett was predictable in Herve Leger.

Fantasia Barrino was another favourite wearing a simple black dress with gold Louis Vuitton Cancan heels.

Monica has seen far better days.

Her secretary meets rock chick look doesn’t work for me at all.

Runway To BET’s “106 & Park” – Monica In Alexander Wang

Monica has been around for as long as I can remember.

She’s never had a major scandal, she’s always well put together and she always has wide smile on her face.

She has managed to find that fine balance between looking edgy without trying to hard…yes I’m referring to Rihanna.

Monica visited BET’s “106 & Park” this week, to promote her reality TV show “Monica: Still Standing.”

The BET show will chronicle the making of her next studio album and will air every Tuesday at 10/9c.

The singer rocked an Alexander Wang Fall 2009 crocodile-print leather jacket, with jeans and a fierce pair of cut-out Alaia booties.

This jacket is sold exclusively via Net-A-Porter US site for €2,565 and the Net-A-Porter International site for £2,090/€2,565.
