Designer Patricia Field, a longtime favorite of mine, provides fun tips on creating your own style. Early in my solo career, everytime I'd go to New York I couldn't wait to go shopping her her East Village Store, that fact still remains. I always find something.

Olive oil, a great antioxidant, provides benefits by lowering your risks for heart disease and colon cancer as well as helping to maintain low cholesterol levels. Always buy "Extra Virgin" when shopping for it.
In addition to the health benefits, it's great for hair and skin.

Some of my favorite pieces from H&M's 2010 Fashion Against AIDS Collection. Chic fashion on a budget for a worthy cause.

A neutral or "nude" shoe is a great addition to your collection and a hot look for spring/summer. These are three of my picks, The YSL Tribute Pump, Miu Miu and studded Louboutins.
The Chanel Jade Collection is one of the most popular right now. If you're looking for nice pastels or combo this is quite nice.

"Knowing you're a little like bamboo, life and circumstance may make you bend - but knowing you're strong enough to overcome - you won't break." -Jody Watley
Currently, my favorite high performance make-up line is Kett. This is make-up for the digital age. Kett is not tested on animals, and also boasts plush vegan brushes.
The drop crotch or "harem" pant makes a return every few years. Granted the look isn't for everyone and isn't easy to wear. Affordable and high waisted at American Apparel or upscale designers like Chloe and Gaultier give the look a modern edge. I think the look works best with a nice heel or bootie. Recently spotted wearing the look are Nicole Ritchie, Keri Hilson, and actress Juliette Binoche who wore the Givenchy drop crotch jumpsuit in Cannes.

One of my aspirations growing up was to be a fashion illustrator or designer...I believe in dreams, aspirations and goals. You're never too old to be what you might have been or too young to visualize what you want to be.

She's always been one of my favorite models whether in print, or working the catwalk. There's only one Naomi. I've had the pleasure to meet her on a few occasions and she she was incredibly nice each time. Happy 40th Birthday Naomi, I hope you begin to find the inner peace you desire.
