American Idol 8: Rat Pack Week

Posted by Kim on April 29th, 2009

Jaime Foxx is the “surprise” guest mentor this week….in other words, last minute mentor who has a movie to promote.  Okay, I guess he’s a decent choice.  He did have to transform himself from a modern day performer into someone of that era after all. And Kris goes,  “all those people are…dead.” Haha! SYTYCD? promo! […]

Halle Berry in Harpers Bazaar May 09

Posted by Kim on April 24th, 2009

Harpers Bazaar really loves their pink! And they’re using it all over their summer May 09 cover, which features actress Halle Berry.  I’m not really crazy about this color, her dress blends in too much and the hair and make up is questionable.  Super cute dresses in the editorial pics though (seee below). Get a […]
