Five Fave Looks from the Met Gala 2023

Salma Hayek

Last night’s Met Gala red carpet did not disappoint! Many came dressed in black and white ensembles to honor the late Karl Lagerfeld but others like Salma Hayek above wore bright, fierce colors. I just loved Salma Hayek’s red Gucci dress and think she was definitely among the best dressed on the red carpet last night.

Gigi Hadid donned a gorgeous, custom-made Givenchy dress that was just jaw-dropping. These two looks along with Rihanna’s Valentino number, Janelle Monae’s Thom Browne outfit and Sydney Sweeney’s Miu Miu were among my favorites of the night. Scroll down to see more of these beautiful dresses.

Ruffles, Harnesses and Tulle at the Gucci F/W 2020 Show

The Gucci Fall/Winter 2020 show was quite different this year, starting with a rotating circle of dressers and models. There was quite a bit of ruffles, tulle and harness wear that flirts femininity with roughness. There was also some great pops of color to brighten up some of the usual black in fall/winter wardrobes. It was a great show and a daring open to Milan Fashion Week. Check out more photos below!

FARFETCH Mid-Winter Sale Finds!!

So if you haven’t heard already, FARFETCH is having a ridiculous sale. Over 3000 items are up to 70% off, AND they’re throwing in an additional 20% off with the code x20ff. Yea, I know. Sounds too good to be true right? Well, there are actually some amazing finds! I didn’t comb through all 3000 items but I definitely made my way through a lot of them and found some cute things for myself.



Everybody needs a good pair of jeans, these classic Brocken Bow skinny jeans above are on sale for $88. If you want to try something different…maybe you’re going to fashion week in one of the cities next month, try these purple Alberta Ferretti trousers with just a cool t-shirt or sweater.



Found a few cute sweatshirts/sweaters. They’re ideal for cozy warmth on a cold winter day. Loving the lace detail on the Adidas by Stella McCartney sweatshirt. Fabulous.




Some of these dresses can work this winter with some tights and even an undershirt. But some of them will be absolutely perfect for the spring!



Okay so up north it definitely gets old wearing the same coat everyday. Especially that good old black or grey that everybody wears. Hey I love black and grey but there is no better way to spice up a cold winter day than with a bright-colored coat. Delpozo has a beautiful yellow and beige cape coat 40% off. Hurry though because there is only one left.


There’s plenty of skirts on sale but I have to say this black and white Balmain mini skirt will definitely get worn. You can go to lunch with that…even to work if you do it right.


So mind you this Bao Bao Issey Miyake bag is on sale and I hardly ever see any of their merchandise on sale. And kid you not, Ashish, Proenza Schouler and Rebecca Minkoff. High to low… yess!




There’s a lot of boots on sale. Now might be the time to try that sexy high-knee boot or even these Versace velvet boots.

If you’re looking for more picks, feel free to visit the fashion shop. Have fun and please do share your finds in the comments below!

Milly Dress and Summer Rosé Wine on the Roof

Malinda Knowles Milly Dress

This summer has been all about soaking up the sun rays and ros wine. We still have some time before Fall to enjoy the weather.

I love when the art and fashion collide, especially on a dress. I recently wore this Milly dress to an AKA luncheon and everybody was in love. It’s perfect for that kind of affair, brunch, lunch, or business with a nice blazer. Check out more summer dresses here.

Summer is in the Air: Waves, Water and that Perfect Maxi Dress for a Hamptons Weekend

Malinda Knowles at beach in Florida
I was looking at some old Instagram photos of an amazing time I had on the beach last Memorial Day Weekend and decided to share a few. I just can’t wait for the weather to fully warm up in New York City and for a few Hamptons weekends. As an original native of Florida, I live for the beach (only the good ones though) and I adore cute summer sandals, hats, bikinis, maxi dresses and jumpers. As I finalize my summer plans and get out of these final exams at FIT, I am absolutely looking forward to summer this year! Instagram by Malinda Knowles, Jupiter Beach Florida

Here’s an old painting of a beach wave that I did some time ago but I’m challenging myself to do better than that and get a bit more depth and contour in the wave and ocean water. As I said before, all of my artwork should be up on the blog before the summer is over.

Anyway, I love a good maxi dress for the summer and spotted some new ones recently that seem great for that Florida or Hamptons summer vacation weekend. Check out a few below from Tibi, Roberto Cavalli, and Diane von Furstenberg. See even more summer wear here.

Nolcha New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2013 presented by RUSK


Last week I also attended the later Nolcha NYFW Show in midtown and caught works created by Studio 6th Sense, Adolfo SanchezAndressa Leão. There were some very sexy pieces that I just adored but wondered how I would wear given that they were see-through! With those you would just have to get some good nude underwear. What do you think of the dress above?

Andressa Leão turned up the pretty and feminine factor with some very beautiful dresses.


And, Studio 6th Sense and Adolfo Sanchez turned up the sex factor with skin-tight leather dresses and see through fabric.


I saw some great stuff, met some great people and became a fan of Foco Coconut Water. I also spotted rapper Wacka Flocka Flame who posed for photographs and left the building driving an absolutely gorgeous Rolls Royce. Others were spotted like singer Cocoa Bella, Jersey Shore star Sammi Sweetheart, actress Dawn Olivieri and Mercedes Javid aka “MJ” from Shahs of Sunset.  Nolcha held a brunch and fashion lounge the next day that I quickly caught during lunchtime last week. Adolfo Sanchez told me that Alexander McQueen inspired him and his headwear in his runway show.
