Media personality, actress, reality star and cosmetics brand owner Lala Anthony was spotted backstage at BET‘s 106 & Park wearing a Givenchy Digital Print Dress With Peplum Accents. This multicolored dress also feature a classic collar, waffle piqued back and a hidden front zipper and it retails for $2,073 over at MyTheresa.Com. She accessorized her outfit with a pair of diamond hoop earrings and bangle bracelets. I love Lala’s look, wish she was able to show her shoes in this picture. Lala is still filming scenes for the third season of her reality show, Lala’s Full Court Life which is expected to premiere later this year or early 2013. Ladies, do you like this dress and what kind of shoes will you pair with it?

NBA Player CHRIS PAUL Wears UPSCALE Designer Pieces In His Fall Style Photo Shoot With GQ Magazine

NBA player Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers gets all dapper for his Fall Style photo shoot with GQ Magazine. For his fashion spread, CP wears designer pieces including Gant Rugger, David Hart & Co., Dsquared2, Ralph Lauren, Jordan Brand, Prada, Brunello Cucinelli, Gucci, Billionaire Boys Club, Club Manaco, Michael Bastian, Todd Snyder and much more. In his cover story, the 27-year-old North Carolina native talks about his past altercation with Pau Gasol, the positive aspect of being short, being a people person and the importance of family and having a good support system. Below are some excerpts:

On his past altercation with Lakers player Pau Gasol after he patted him on the head after the two had exchanged words:

We call that sonnin’. Like when I take Li’l Chris to the bathroom, I’ll walk with my hand on his head. That’s my son. You know what I mean? I understand that Gasol is that tall, but don’t do to me what I do to my son.”

The positive aspect of being short:

I’ve been fortunate to be short my entire life. I look puzzled. There’s only one position I’ve ever had to play, and that’s point guard. So I’ve always had to be that leader. And that was my job: you know, to talk.

On being a people person:

I’m a big-time people person, too. Like, I love people. I hate to be by myself.” He repeats the phrase to himself, quieter each time: “I hate to be by myself. I hate to be by myself. I hate to be by myself.”

He styled in a black hoodie and jeans paired with Rick Owens Cargo Basket Leather Boots which retails for $1,455 over at Mr. Porter. These leather biker boots feature a side zipper and pocket, white laces and sole and a raised perforated toe cap. This PRETTY rapper was one of first the new artists of our generation to mixed high-end fashion and street wear together. Most rappers wait until they go mainstreams to start embracing high-end fashion but Rocky came out the gate doing it. Before Rocky even dropped an album, he has already collaborated with fashion designers Jeremy Scott and Alexander Wang. His debut album arrives later this year or early 2013.

Watch My Kicks: Carmelo Anthony Rocking Air Jordan 4 “Red Suede”; Plus Covers SLAM November 2012 Issue

Carmelo Anthony is my favorite NBA player, y’all CAN’T tell me NOTHING! The New York Knicks small forward is featured on the cover of SLAM Magazine’s November 2012 issue. Standing on a rooftop at Manhattan’s Ace Hotel, for an exclusive interview and photo shoot, Melo rocked a pair of his Air Jordan 4 “Red Suede” paired with a black ‘Flight’ Air Jordan tee-shirt and cargo pants. This has been a busy summer for Melo. He participated in 2012 ‘Olympics’ in London and he recently held his Charity Baseball Game in Puerto Rico.

Melo’s official SLAM Magazine November 2012 issue below:

Excerpt from Melo’s SLAM cover story:Whether he’s had the right coaches or teammates, there’s no debating the fact that Carmelo hasn’t won enough in his two truncated seasons here. In fact, I know some big Knick fans who have all but given up on deep Playoff runs with Carmelo. “Great scorer, and our best player,” they’ll say. “But this guy is not a winner, and he’s not a leader.” Melo’s horrendous Playoff winning percentage doesn’t exactly offer much in the way of refutation, either.”

Solange Knowles Takes Some Creative Pictures For LURVE Magazine; Plus Talks Fashion & Hair

Solange Knowles (I think she is a fashion trendsetter) gets dress up in a few unique outfits and takes some creative pictures for LURVE Magazine. She even went overboard (in a fashionable way) and put lipstick over her face. Some of her outfits include a green coat, black dress and Dolce & Gabanna bodysuit. Inside, Solo talks about her sense of humor and fashion risks, so much attention being focused on her hair and going on a Twitter rant. Below are some excerpts:

On her sense of humor and fashion risks

That sense of humor is really just the key to keeping my sanity, not taking myself  or others too seriously. I’m the first one to make fun of myself because, quite frankly, I do some dumb sh-t all of the time.  I don’t get embarrassed too easily, either. That’s a trait that has served me well, and made a fool of me sometimes.

I mean, look at some of my fashion choices back in the day.  You know how people say, ‘Who let her walk out of the house that way?” or “She needs more people!”… Oh believe me, I had the people, and they tried, but I resisted the arrest! Life is suppose to be about experimenting and going for it, especially in your twenties. So I have to just go for it, and laugh later.
