Bag Ladies "Look of the Week"

So much to choose from but we couldn't keep our eyes off Rihanna and the look she was sporting at this weekend's 2010 Kids Choice Awards know the awards show where folks get slimed? But you know RiRi wasn't having any part in that modeling on the orange carpet (not red), in a pale pink Christian Dior dress. This is a look you can recreate which we definitely like. We love the defined shoulders which has become RiRi's claim to fame as of late. And paired with nude Brian Atwood pumps, the look works. And further accessorized with sequined, sheer white socks, a belt to cinch that waist (always a plus), and dripping in Neil Lane diamonds, how can you go wrong?

The look is the perfect combo of chic fashion and effortless style ...has a kind of nostalgic feel to it. And loving the clean face with the dramatic eye and soft lip. Our pick for "Look of the Week"

Tune into Bag Ladies Reality Radio every Tuesday at 7:30p for REAL Women ...REAL Talk!

And join us for a "special edition" live broadcast from Soul Parlour featuring Bag Ladies, tomorrow at Eighteenth Street Lounge in Washington, DC.

But one who ultimately understands that each individual interprets fashion in their own way.

We want you to be our primary resource for all things beauty when it comes to makeup tips, tricks, techniques, trends, new product, product reviews, etc. You would have your own recurring segment on Bag Ladies Radio so any experience in writing, journalism, broadcasting or pr is a good look. Also any and all experience in make-up or cosmetics is preferable.

We can’t make every party, every affair, every event, and every show that we are extended an invitation to attend. So if you like to be out and about and “on the scene” and like to be seen at some of the chicest and fab events and if you also stay in the know regarding what are the most happening events, then we wanna holla!

We are looking for someone who can make themselves available on a moment’s notice should a last minute event arise or invitation be received, someone who has style and good fashion sense (you are representing us :-)), who is personable, who is sociable, well-mannered and who knows how to network. Ultimately, you will be representing Bag Ladies and the Bag Ladies brand at various events. We need you to know where you need to be, who you need to be seen with translation, who you need to steal pics with. You will most often cover the events in addition to having a presence which may require a written recap or reporting on air during Bag Ladies Radio Show. Any experience in promotions, marketing, writing or journalism is ideal.
