The Weekend Of Chic: Kim Kardashian Preps For Vogue, Joe Namath Dazzles In Fur And Solange Knowles Slays


When Kim Kardashian Instagrams the world stops and listens... Well in Kris's head anyways. 
Over the weekend the Kardashian powerhouse revealed her brunette locks with the caption "I'm Back" to her millions of followers. Since the birth of North West Kim has been rocking touselled blond tresses along with her new signature "midriff" looks *Insert Side-Eye Here*


Rumors have been swirling about the possibilities of Kim landing a Vogue cover. Multiple sources have revealed her fiancé and fellow fashion compadre Kanye West has been pestering (yes, we said pestering) Anna Wintour for quite some time about the possibility of Kim gracing the coveted fashion publication. Reports are circling the new brunette look is in preparation for her long awaited photo shoot.... With Vogue! 


Aside from Alyssa Milano and her football apparel line "Touch" there's never rally been a fusion of fashion and the Super Bowl. Last night in front of million of adoring fans and a few PETA folks, Hall of Famer Joe Namath donned a fox jacket for the coin toss. Twitter immediately erupted and PETA eventually got in on the action with a few tweets of their own. 


Unbeknownst to many Namath, 70, has been a fan of furs since his heyday in the 1960s, often photographed on the sidelines wearing luxurious minks and foxes. 


This style chameleon knows as Solange Knowles never fails to keep us amazed at her impeccable sense of style. The younger sister of Beyonce has come into her own and proves she is the REAL deal when it comes to fashion (Take notes Beyonce). This weekend for the big game Solange stepped onto the blue carpet for a Bud Light event delivering us Diana Ross glam. Her retro inspired "Fro" was the perfect accessory to her chic and casual look. We see you Solange!

In Chic Vegas News: Vegas Prepares To Welcome The Cromwell


                                    

Masterfully positioned at the intersection of Flamingo Road and Las Vegas Boulevard sits the former home Bill's Gambling Hall. Named after Harrah's  founder and pioneer Bill Harrah. Amidst a few hiccups in the construction phase the iconic structure in center of the Las Vegas strip has officially been christened The Cromwell. 
Still under construction, the boutique hotel’s name foreshadows its sophisticated vibe and lavish aesthetic. As the newest luxury lifestyle boutique hotel and casino on the Strip, The Cromwell is poised to raise the stakes.

                           



                                   

  • $185 million renovation, owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment
  • 188 rooms and suites
  • 169 hotel rooms are reminiscent of Parisian loft-style apartments with distressed hardwood flooring and vintage luggage motif furnishings
  • Lighting recalls French provincial styling
  • Black and white mosaic tiled shower walls act as the canvas for miscellaneous English-French phrases
  • Unique and interesting luggage truck style furniture
  • Full length mirror and plush seating

HOTEL DESIGN
The Cromwell will blend vintage with modern, drawing inspiration from the Coste Hotel in Paris with black Parisian-style awnings and gold fixtures adorning the windows. From the moment guests enter from the Porte Cochere, a boutique hotel experience that blends traditional elements with Parisian flare and whimsical, modern details awaits. 
The hotel lobby is reminiscent of a parlor from the past; accessories and bookshelves adorned with leather bound books clad the walls.

The Cromwell is scheduled to open this Spring, (just in time for patio dining and pool season, of course.) Total Rewards members can book a room starting Feb. 21. Three days later,  rooms are available to the general public. Everyone is encouraged to sign up to stay on top of the latest Cromwell news.
                                      

Giada De Laurentiis and Victor Drai are star anchors, and construction is well underway on Giada's two-story restaurant masterpiece and Drai's three daylife/nightlife venues.
Chef and Food Network celebrity De Laurentiis will debut her Italian recipe favorites in a beautiful, airy dining room which she says will feature an antipasto bar. With warm colors and natural lighting thanks to huge Strip-front windows, she’s currently previewing dishes and designing the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. Drai will launch his cult favorite Drai’s After Hours (temporarily moved to Bally’s for now), along with his first-ever beach club and adjoining nightclub space - on the hotel’s roof, no less.

In Chic Fashion News: Sarah Jessica Parker SJP Shoe Collection Unveiled....


Sex and the City devotees the wait is finally over! Our resident fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker (always Carrie Bradshaw in my head) has finally unveiled her entire SJP shoe collection. The vibrant collection  launches exclusively at Nordstrom on February 28th at selected Nordstrom locations and on-line.
The colourful and stunning offerings deliver a homage to Parker's feminine style. Each shoe comes complete with grosgrain ribbon detail on every style. The unique detail is a reference to the actress's childhood. 
Styles range from elegant T-bars and metallic stilettos to suede flip-flops and espadrille wedges, with prices starting at $195.

"I've taken inspiration from things in my life such as the grosgrain ribbons I tied in my hair as a girl, to the flower accents from the Sex and the City wardrobe to references to classic styles from the late Seventies and early Eighties," said Parker. "I'm a firm believer in quality and timelessness and have created this collection with the hopes that women will love wearing it for years to come."
Sarah Jessica Parker and George Malkemus, president of Manolo Blahnik USA.

The collection also features a selection of handbags and trench coats. The Sex and the City star first announced she was launching her own line in June last year, choosing to collaborate with George Malkemus, CEO of Manolo Blahnik - the label that, as Carrie Bradshaw, she helped put firmly on the fashion map. 

While this is not SJP's first foray into fashion, it's the most exciting launch to date. In 2008 Parker collaborated with retailer Steve & Barry to crete the coveted "Bitten" clothing line where all items were sold under $20. The demand and success of the line was huge until the retailer filed bankruptcy and eventually closed all stores.

In Tech Chic News: Hershey's Set To Launch a CHOCOLATE 3-D Printer


Ever imagined you could have your favorite chocolate treat with just a touch of the "Print" button? 

Looks like our chocolate dreams have come true with 3D Systems announcing a deal with Hershey's to collaborate on developing a 3-D printer that makes chocolate and other edible products. 

"We embrace new technologies such as 3D printing as a way to keep moving our timeless confectionery treats into the future," Hershey's said in a statement. It's also a good way to keep moving 3D printing (especially when it involves food) into the mainstream.



In a statement, 3D Systems said making printers that print chocolate is a good way to help the relatively new technology go mainstream. Hershey sees it as a great delivery system for its products.

In Chic Review: Bravo TV's Blood, Sweat And Heels Invades Sunday Nights


I'm not a huge fan of reality television.... There I said it! 
Over the years it's simply not one of my favorite past items considering the negative images often portrayed by women. Bravo TV's latest addition to their Sunday line up proves to be nothing shy of what I expected. 

Six women conquering New York City with style and attitude... I was unable to watch the entire episode as the cat fights and over-the-top drama had me frantically searching for my remote. As a blogger and media professional I applaud anyone attempting to take their brand to the next level, I only despise tomfoolery in the process. Blood, Sweat delivers the usual relationship dilemma Queen (Daisy), the vixen (Melyssa), the smarty pants (Demetria) mixed in with three seemingly normal cast members (Geneva, Micha and Bri) . All in all, a total snooze fest! 

I may tune in next week and give it another try... Or maybe not! 

What were your thoughts on Blood, Sweat and Tears?

Chic Style File: New Year's Eve Fab


Happy New Year Fabulous Ones... 

In true Très Chic Style tradition I brought in the new year with laughter, good folks and STYLE! When i was a kid I can remember attending Watch-Night service (it's a Southern thing... Look it up!) with my grandma and  bringing in the new year in prayer followed by an early morning of fried chicken, potatoe salad and fixings at a family member's home. 

These days it's a bit different and while I didn't ring in 2014 in God's house, he's ever present in my life and my only standing Sunday morning appointment. When you live in a haute town like Vegas there's a myriad of events going on and like always we find ourselves torn between them all. 

While we hopped the night away with friends at Carmine's, MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay we finally landed on an M Resort rooftop just in time to snag a glimpse of the fireworks display at midnight complete with bubbly and a band. 



The Look: 
Black Jumpsuit, Gold Belt - TAGS Boutique, Las Vegas 
Shoes: Carlos Santana "Zip Me" Pumps
Bracelet: Kate Spade
Ring: H&M
Necklace: H&M 

This year I decided to forgo the glitz and glamour and settled on an effortless comfy look. My sassy jumpsuit allowed me to dance the night away with ease. Simple gold accessories pulled it all together and proved for a dazzling night. 


Très Chic Style Media Wishes You A Happy & Prosperous New Year....

Happy New Year... XOXO Très Chic Style


2013 has been yet another year filled with unparalleled blessings, experiences, places and awesome folks. I'd love to mention each individual media partner by name but we'd be here.... Forever! Since 2007, I've had the pleasure of working with a myriad of brands across the globe. 2013 proved to be one of our greatest yet.

 As we pause to reflect I just wanted to thank you all for taking the time to stop by my little outlet each and every day. Your emails, comments and support truly means the world to me. The best is yet to come and I'm happy you're along for the ride.

Happy New Year,

Chic Holiday Gift Guide: Get Styled With Hot Tools For The Holiday


A gift so fabulous you'll want one or two for yourself.... 

Day Two:



Fabulous hair is always in season and the ingenious folks at Hot Tools have found a way to deliver stylish looks complete with an appliance in beautiful colors and patterns. Hot Tools has long been a trusted name in hair appliances and the "Pretty In Pink" collection is the perfect addition under any beautynista's tree. 


Snag "Just Walked Out of the Salon" looks with the 1" "Pretty In Pink" salon curling iron with nano ceramic. 

What It Does: The nano ceramic emits gentle, far infrared heat (The far end of the infrared spectrum of light is invisible to the eye, but penetrates further than visible wavelengths because it “radiates” – directly heating objects in an area without heating the entire space - through a process of direct light conversion into heat. This is the same way the sun heats (consider how cool it is in the shade), but far infrared heat lacks the dangerous UV rays and other wavelengths that are harmful to us.

It is gentle to your hair, seals the cuticle and eliminates frizz. In as little as 3 minutes your hair is transformed into soft, shiny gorgeous ringlets. Heats up to 430 degrees and comes complete with a hair type chart to help you determine the appropriate setting for your hair texture. It's even safe enough for human and synthetic extensions. 

Bonus Features: 
  • Separate on/off switch
  • Foldaway safety stand
  • Powerful spring clamp
  • BONUS! 2 replacement springs included
  • 8 ft. tangle-free swivel cord
  • One-year warranty

Why We Love It: Well it's PINK! Fab girls adore pretty things and this Hot Tools collection fits the bill. The fast heat-up allows you to get ready with ease minus long wait times for heat-up like regular irons. The extra-long cool tip ensures there's no mishaps and the extra-long thumb grip is pretty handy as well.

 It's simple and easy to recreate your favorite looks with the Hot Tools how-to videos and professional tips on their website as well. And lastly.... It get's hot and STAYS hot! Now does your iron do that???

To Purchase: www.HotTools.com

Sashay on over tomorrow, we have a few more goodies from Hot Tools we know you'll love




In Chic Tech News: Applebee's Wants You To Interact With Tablets..... NOT Your Server!


Do you love going out for dinner but hate the human interaction it always requires? Applebee's apparently knows the feeling: One of  the world's most relaxed restaurant chains is adding tablets to its tables and bar areas to let you order your food and pay the check without having to track down your server. There will even be games and social media interaction for times when you're eating alone, or with someone who makes you wish you were eating alone.

The new plan involves the purchase of 100,000 tablets from food service tablet maker Presto, which will include a standard credit card reader as well as NFC to link up to mobile wallet apps. The tablets will be rolling out to 1,800 Applebee's locations in the US by the end of 2014. The company also says it plans to add other features like streaming music, video, and even tools that will let you share what you're eating with Facebook buddies.

In Chic Film News: Robert Townsend Confirms Five Heart Beats Sequel


"Nights Like a This I Wish".....

That single verse conjures up so many memories and emotions. In 1991 Robert Townsend set out to deliver a musical homage loosely based on the lives of  The DellsThe TemptationsFour TopsWilson PickettJames BrownFrankie LymonSam Cooke and others. What he accomplished was a classic journey celebrating the bonding of family, friendship, tragedy and triumph. 


I can recall watching The Five Heart Beats with family, friends, my children and even alone on a Saturday morning. Heart Beats was the "It Film" you own on DVD and can recite in it's entirety... Line by Line! I recently had the pleasure during the Soul Train Awards weekend in Las Vegas to meet Robert Townsend during the Centric Comedy Show where he received the prestigious Centric Comedy Icon Award. Having been a devoted fan and admirer of his work since "I'm Gonna Get You Sucker" I instantly re-lived my "Eddie Kane" (you had to be there) moment.  After a few minutes of both us bursting out into laughter it was safe to say the "Heart Beat Bug" hadn't left Mr. Townsend just yet. 

Recently on a press tour for Bill Cosby's television special Far From FinishedRobert Townsend confirmed the news that he is preparing a second installment to the classic '90s film. "I am working on a sequel," he said "Next year I’ll be making an announcement."

And There Was Happiness Everywhere!!!!! 

What's your favorite Five Heart Beats moment? Tweet me @treschicstyle for a chance to win the DVD.... After all it's the holiday season and we're in the giving mood!

Thanksgiving Survival Tips... Cooking & Entertaining Made Chic & Simple.



For the first time in years the Très Chic family has decided to forgo cooking at home... After a whirlwind journey around the world, organizing a few philanthropic projects and running for Mrs. Nevada I haven't the time or desire to spend countless hours in the kitchen. 

My chic folks (that's what the I call the hubby and kid) and I are headed out to celebrate turkey day. However, where we're headed remains a mystery (We're the surprise kind of folks) Ha! While many will be doing the opposite and rocking the night away in the kitchen Imposted a few survival tips to get you threw the day with ease. 

-Preparing food in advance is key.... Don't wait till the last minute to season, defrost or stuff that bird. Put on some music the night before, pour a glass of wine and get to work. 
-Relax... Sometimes cooking for an army can be quite the daunting task. You want to make everything perfect and often forget perfection is not always what makes a great holiday gathering. 
-Dealing with family... Regardless of how annoying Uncle Pete can be or how condescending Aunt Sallie seems, they're your family! And holiday or not they're with you forever. 
-Don't sweat the small stuff... So your pie seems a little browned. Dust off the edges and present it as your special creation and dare anyone to comment! 
-Be open to suggestions.... You're reading this post so obviously you're open to other's input. Head to cooking and entertaining websites for helpful tips. 
-Don't forget your hostess duties... While you may be playing chef for the moment no one likes a missing hostess. Take frequent breaks out of the kitchen and mingle with your guests. It'll make them feel special and relieve your stress and exhaustion. 



In Not-So-Chic Vegas News: Treasure Island's Sirens of TI Takes It's Last Sail... Closes Permanently!


It's a sad day for revelers of the action packed Siren's of TI Show at Treasure Island. I've been smitten with the show since my first visit to Las Vegas. It was exciting, splashy and delivered a simple dose of entertainment for the family. The complimentary show has been on hiatus and promised to re-open the day after Christmas. 

Ironically we at Très Chic Style shared the news earlier this Summer that a three-story shopping mall would be settling into the former Steve Wynn property. The shopping mall entails space for retail stores, restaurants and a pharmacy... Thus the Siren's of TI would be left out. This news isn't a great surprise given the small amount of square footage that would be left to build had the show remained. 


A Treasure Island spokeswoman confirmed today that "Sirens of TI" has been canceled, citing an ongoing project to build a shopping center there. There were no immediate details about the number of cast members affected or plans for a future show.
