Lady of Mayhem of the Month: Mariel Haenn

Who is Mariel Haenn?

No other than Rihanna's stylist who made Rihanna into a fashion forward fashionista. Mariel has taken Rihanna's past bohemian/Bahamas look and brought her into the future with an edgy hair style, killer shoes and a "FIERCE" wardrobe. And she does it all on a budget!! She has mentioned that the Label that Rihanna works for gives her a tight wardrobe budget. So, to help out the situation she buys her accessories and some shoes at smaller price point stores like Forever 21 and H&M.
She quotes in a interview with VH1, "There is definitely always a budget, and it's not always what we would like it to be, but that's the challenge of my job," Haenn said . She has also said, "I care a lot, I put everything into it. I know there are not a lot of other stylists that care as much as me, but it's me and my name on it".

What an inspiration! Her popularity has grown based on not who she knows but, by the quality of her work. Now, when you see rihanna on TV, the Internet or in magazine looking FLY, you know that Mariel Haenn is the woman who had something to do with it.

Christian Dior Resort 2009

Christian Dior kicked off Resort season with colour, print and volume. I found his collection very feminine and sexy in a demure way. He didn't too much skin, it was just enough. You can tell that he was designing for a strong, confident woman. One thing I absolutely love about John Galliano, who designs for Christian Dior, is that he has brought back the "GLAMOROUS LIFE". In his collection he has brought back the time when woman used to make a strong effort to look good. To gets up in the morning, have their hair perfectly curled and pinned, a red pout and lots of jewels just to walk into the kitchen. I think of all those woman from the 1950s films. They really expressed glamour in those eras.

Here's a few of his looks that I just fell for......

The Hills.....oh no it's over ...For now!!!

The Hills has come to an end for another season. I love the Hills! Last year I had an opportunity to be on the couch for the After Show. That was a great experience.

So, we are lefted with Audrina and Lauren's awkwardness, Lo's third wheeling, and of course the never ending love of Spencer and Heidi.

I can't wait for Fourth Season!!

What do think? Heidi going back to Spencer? Lauren and Audrina? What are your prediction/opinions for Season 4?

I Heart Narnia

I am so excited about Chronicles Narnia's sequel "Prince Caspian". I use to read these books when I was a little kid. More importantly, I am excited to see the costumes. I wasn't sure if I mentioned this before but, I've studied fashion design and costume design when I was in college.

I love how costumes can help form a character. The costumes help take a 2-D idea into a 3-D masterpiece.

Also, I have an obsession for the medieval period. The name "Lady of Mayhem" is a play on Joan of Arc. My collection is influence by the medieval period as well.

The new it-model CHANEL IMAN will part of the the all-black issue of Italian Vogue. Veronica Webb and Jordan Dunn will also be apart of this collaboration. It's rumored that Chanel or Jordan Dunn will be on the cover of the magazine.

Since CHANEL IMAN came on the fashion scene the modelling game has not been the same. This eight-teen year old has modelled for all the top couturier designers. I can't wait see what else she got in store.....WATCH OUT TYRA..looks like there might be a take over in a couple of years.

Here's CHANEL IMAN sporting a 3.1 Phillip Lim gown at the recent Costume Institute Gala. She's looking so fierce with the swirls!

Designer Feature.......WILL.i.AM

I.Am clothing aims to fill the gap created in an industry where mass production consumes each person's need for individuality," says

My designer feature for the month is from the Black Eyed Peas was a former L.A.'s Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising student. In 2001, he began designing his own signature clothing line,, which made its debut in 2005. Last year he collabed with Blue Holdings to design a premium denim line, Antik.

He spent over four years in between touring, music videos and producing working on his clothing line. His collection consists of " blazers, waistcoats, skirts, pants and scarves, all incorporating the funk of's music". He works diligently on his line with his business partner Lor-e Phillips whom is the stylist for Black Eyed Peas. Their current collection will be exclusively at Hard Rock Hotel Boutiques across the country.

They have also created a uniform line for the staff at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. They have 27 different uniforms for casino staff, cocktail waitresses, who are wearing bustiers and miniskirts and card dealers decked out in shirts with a Hard Rock tattoo print.

I love celebrity designers who really are designing for the love of it and not the just the dollar.
Way to go,, you're one talented guy!

Let me know how you feel about celebrity designers, nah or yay?!

So, the Lady of Mayhem crew had another meeting this past weekend.

Our discussion involved planning for our fashion show and other promotional events. As well, as writing proposals for these events. I have also, completed some "rough draft" garments a.k.a. muslin to see how it fits on the body and to see if my patterns are correct. My patterns were fair. I still have some corrections to make on it.
I can't wait for you all to see it. I can't wait for you to experience the Mayhem!!!

Which reminds me, I have another meeting tonight for another promotional event. This event is going to be Fierce!! Stay tuned...

P.S. If you want a Lady of Mayhem tee or Read my Blog tee...get at me!!

Spring is all about colour!! Another great way to bring some colour into your life is to put it on your eyes. NO, not with eyeshadow.....try using mascara in another colour besides black.

There's so many options all you have to do is find the right one for you!
If you are feeling like a BIG SPENDER, get a great mascara from Christian Dior. Christian Dior shows are all about drama and FIERCE-ness. So, you know you will not be disappointed.

Also, Anna Sui, has a great make-up line and fun mascara colours. I use her blue mascara religiously!

If you are not in the mood to splurge, Maybelline has a great arrange of mascara that you can choose from.
