Lupita Nyong'o

Tiffany & Co. rarely creates advertising and marketing campaigns around celebrities. The high end luxury brand recently tapped actresses Lupita Nyong’o and Elle Fanning to star in a new print and digital advertising campaign.

It is the first time that Tiffany's, best known for the movie and song "Breakfast at Tiffany's", has ever used celebrities in a marketing campaign.

The minimal print ads, photographed by David Sims, shows Nyong'o posing in front of the easily recognizable Tiffany blue backdrop, along with the slogan, "Some style is legendary."

Fashionista.com explains that Tiffany & Co. is facing financial hardship and falling stock prices, probably due to the absurdly high costs of the company's signature jewelry pieces.

Fashionista.com -- In an effort to shake off some of the dust from its image and appeal to a younger demographic (those valuable #millennials!), Tiffany & Co. tapped Grace Coddington back in April to make over its campaigns. While her first one isn't a huge departure for the brand, it is different: Coddington cast models Natalie Westling and Christy Turlington alongside actresses Lupita Nyong'o and Elle Fanning, marking the first time celebrities have starred in a Tiffany & Co. campaign.

    Love Lupita but not sure she could bring Tiffanys back. Cartier is dominating with the love bracelet. They need more than a celebrity, they need good product.

    Lupita is BEAUTIFUL! Flawless!

  • NegroDamus

    well when the conglomerate behind the wedding ring tells you diamonds have no intrinsic value...one tends to not want to continue to spend 5-15k on carbon and some yellow or white metal. I be like bihh you want to waste $20,000 on something that you cant even resale back to jewelers or you want an entry level whip and a claire's blang blang rang to front with? Huh? Huh? huh?

  • harley_quinn2.0

    She looks beautiful as always

  • KcoolMuziq

    #DarkSkinGirlsRock... She's perfection..

  • LeBrick James

    Reminds me of the Louis Vuitton store here in Atlanta. It's funny how you can always tell the people who really have money, vs. the pretenders & posers. There's a certain hood element that likes to go in to buy something they can walk out with as some kind of "status symbol".

    Like Lauren Hill says, "frontin' niggas give me heebee-geebees".

  • LeBrick James

    That's a bad sign. It usually only gets worse after you hire the person.

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    You are right, most folks with LOADS of cash prefer not to wear items that display names of "high end" items. Like Louis, Gucci...All the retailers have brought new people on board to revamp their style, my last purchase over the week-end a retailer has switched up their packaging...Not sure what the bag, that bag goes in has anything to do with anything, but it will brighten up my closet.

    We touched on it yesterday, but I'm for it today too. Kelly KNEW better. There is no excuse. If there is gospel anywhere in the title of the event, then you save your heathenish songs for the next show.

    I saw her fat ass did that. Stupid. She COMES from a church setting. So does her ex husband. His fam is a HUGE widely known church fam up in NY. Stupid slore.

    She comes from a church background. If anyone KNOWS better its her.

    LOL she better sit her ass down somewhere http://sandrarose.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_rofl.gif

  • I aint the one

    She KNEW better tho, Dub. That's the thing. She was expecting them to overlook the song choice and praise her voice. Nigha, why???!!! Either that or she wanted some press. The hell is her damn, problem?!

    That shit was totally wrong.

  • MissyJ

    Yeah we did. She was supposed to perform hours earlier and the promoters requested secular music.. The promoters issues a public apology

  • Locapoca
  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Oh I know all this. Cosign it all.

    I been harping up here for YEARS about her ego.

    That and the fact that she has had lap band twice and still big as hell. Hence the name I gave her...Belly Thrice. The original belly and the two she got through surg.

  • Yardgirl

    Whet? Someone bitching on some good "under the table" work? Sheeet, some people are just plain ole stoopid! BTW if she carrying on before you hire her............well you know!!

  • yoni

    Dampen Deborah in the building.....

    But did yall know that those Tiffany necklaces (heart and chain) are affiliated with slaves and "branding"? They would have them wear those "fancy collars" with the name of their masters on the "lock" of it. That is where the popular "likened chain" comes from.

  • nucynu25

    ???? it be like that ....the day after pay day I be so hurt ..only had money for one day & then my bills come out automatically ..my shit be gone before I leave that office

  • I aint the one

    Thanks, Missy. Cause I was utterly confused by this. Like...you were raised in the church, you know that ain't how we roll.

  • Buttercup

    I had to stop the tears from falling. Both of GrandmaButters were amazing seamstresses. By the time I came along, they didn't even need patterns. They'd make my outfits by me just describing what I wanted.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Something is really wrong with her azz. R&B Divas gave us just a peek into her crazy.

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    (hot tears)IM HOLLIN!!!!????

  • yoni

    And that's where she lost me as a fan. From THAT show. Happen to be flicking channels last night and seen her on Rickey Smiley Forreal and she was in a church singing. Her voice doesn't even register with me any more.

  • Kanyade

    Twice? Get outta here.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    His fam is a HUGE widely known church fam up in NY.
    --------------------
    They really are. I was shocked to find out she was married to one of those Rolles. This was not her first time singing round church folks. Do better, Belly.

  • yoni

    How could she not? #knowthyaudience

  • Yardgirl

    Lupita is gorgeous and smart. Love her!!

  • Buttercup

    *dead* You been paying her dust since she shaded Mimi.

  • I aint the one

    Oh I know your Belly Thrice reads are pretty legendary in the garden. You ain't never gone let us forget Mimi discovered her in the cafeteria ?

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Same here. I wasn't a super fan before Divas, but I liked her music. I can't stand her now. Reality TV did her no favors.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    I saw this explanation on another blog. Should have said NO to secular music. Why? She is one of the FEW who has a WHOLE entire gospel album. And if she did do secular, she has plenty, PLENTY of other songs to pick from...other than that one. Her ass dont get nah pass from me or them church folk. I hope she continues to get dragged. Her nasty attitude having ass.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Lupita is the truth hunny!!! Her skin is flawless and has a natural glow :bow: #teammelanin

  • Fendi

    Chanel?

  • yoni

    But in HER defense, not really, but.....I know of a lot of secular songs that can be played in a church and have a "Lord's" meaning. For instance.....Stevie Wonder's Master Blaster. What?

  • Buttercup

    Thanks for the education. Tiffany's never really appealed to me. I got into Sydney Evan for a while, but I quickly got out of that phase.

  • I aint the one

    Mom was a huge Kelly fan, I'm quite familiar with her catalogue, she had WAY better choices than the side-hoe anthem. But....I guess.

  • Locapoca
  • yoni

    I was a fan. I loved her voice/album.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Ole heffa.

  • AG

    Yeah, something about this pic is off. Almost like a weak effort....

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    *cries*

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Wait, whet? Master Blaster??? How? Maybe I'm not remembering the lyrics correctly.

  • yoni

    You're welcome.

    If I remember correctly (might be wrong) but D&G has a shirt out with a YT woman on it with a thing over her mouth. Come to find out, that same type of mouth covering was used for slaves so that they wouldn't eat corn while out in the fields. Shirt prolly retailed for no less than $700.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Not many even HAVE a whole album of GOSPEL in their own music catalog to eem pick from. She is the biggest damn loser.

  • nucynu25

    ToToo funny ..I know somebody was humming along lol

  • I aint the one

    But as we lay ain't one of them. Which is why she could have picked a different song of HERS. That ain't even her song originally. You have music you've personally written and recorded that would have been WAY better suited. But you chose that one? I think she wanted to stir up some chit, Sis. ?

  • Buttercup

    ROTFL

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Let me add, if her ex was still managing her, this wouldn't have happened. He would not have let her put herself out there like that.

    I learned how to cook and bake from hanging around the kitchen with my grandmas. I STILL haven't perfected the pineapple cake one of them would make, but I'm not going to give up.

    They should've just kept the fall guy. It's clear it was plagiarized. Melania said she wrote it with little help. They should've just kept it moving.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    You just summed up why baby #2 propelled me back down here where my family is. I still miss my grandma and she died when I was 12. Still cherish those memories. I purposed to make sure my kids will have great memories with their grandparents also. There's a level of wisdom they pass down that I cannot.

  • nucynu25

    Right ..u know how the do ..Sister Mae Patterson was winking at the deacon reminiscing...

  • I aint the one

    Well, we knew it was coming...even though her dumb ass said herself "I wrote it with as little help as possible." We knew that was a WHOLE entire lie...that was your first time seeing most of those words, your pronunciation, or lack there of, made that clear.

    Am I the only one that hangs up in folks face when they call and you pick up, and they are talking to somebody else in the background? No? Ok.

    Awww, they will be forever grateful that you made that decision. That's why I don't trip when Lil Butter goes to my mom's for all breaks. My grandparents were a 5 minute car ride away, so I got to see them pretty much on a daily basis. I can't imagine the person I would be without their influence.

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    If Tiffany wants to give me some pieces, I'd definitely take them! I have a bracelet from them and mad because I can't find it.

    She's gorgeous, but i hear her personality bites. I guess that happens to Oscar winners, they soon change after the win.

    Nawl I ear hustle ??

    Nope. They'll call back when they're prepared to talk.

    You know somebody got that phone call last night. "Oh Shirly I saw you looking at my man . I just wanted you to know I pay his tithes. Am the only that buy those ties Shirley. Nah , don't let Kelly get you thinking you can hve my man am saved but don't push me Shirly."

  • hottlanta

    I tell black people all the time rich people don't walk around wearing alphabet letters all day on their bodies or arms. They look at me like I am crazy. You notice when Nene and other black women started wearing "red bottom" shoes and bragging about it as if they have financially arrived, white women stopped wearing them. They have moved onto something else. Channel 8 had this program on called the REAL couture, behind the scenes. BABY let me tell ya, yall still po. It was unbelievable.

  • Cinnamon Brown

    Not as much anymore.... You used to go because you could get either custom ones faster or you would get it cheaper via Euro.... But now..... You may as well just wait or call for the custom.... But if you are using dollars be repaired to get laughter at... Lol....

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    All the brands are doing bad, I read years back that LV burns items rather than giving discount. memba when folks wore lost and found Tiffany bracelet and necklace. Mine is all tarnished.

  • nucynu25

    "Ma can we get sum nuggets?" .."Yo ass better nugget yo ass in that house and warm them damn beans. They got ppl in Africa starving ..get in that damn house"

  • hottlanta

    I can't answer my telephone. Imma get fired today. ROTFLMAO.

  • yoni

    YAAAAASSSS G-MA! YAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!! LOL

  • I aint the one

    Trust! When I saw it yesterday I was overwhelmed with anger, brought it up here yesterday, ready to drag his ass to blow off some steam. Yoni scooped in and said he ain't worth it. Ima use my energy to uplift US instead.

  • Cinnamon Brown

    They sooooooo don't..... The plain tees they have look just like ones from Walmart but cost your weekly salary.... While on a gig overseas the promoter for my gig took me around and we began to talk about the differences...Black and white rich and poor... And he said to me.... You never make yourself a billboard..... Be unassuming so they can't see you coming.... That always stuck with me...

    Probably pennies she she graduated frrom college, if that her.

    With a successful 2014 Commencement Ceremony behind us, recent High Point University graduates are preparing to commence prestigious career paths around the world at Fortune 500 companies, international service programs, public school systems, top-tier law, medical and graduate school programs, and many other esteemed organizations thanks to their journey at HPU. Here’s a glimpse of one extraordinary senior from the Class of 2014:

    Name: Meredith MacIver

    Major: MacIver graduated with a B.A. in Strategic Communication on May 3.

    Post-graduation plans: MacIver accepted a position as a Sales Associate for Bernhardt Furniture Residential in Denver, Co. She assists Andrew Bacik, an HPU alumnus and Bernhardt employee of 15 years, in managing the Colorado, Utah, Las Vegas, Arizona and New Mexico territories.

    Twice a year, MacIver will attend the High Point Furniture Market to debut Bernhardt’s new product lines and work with retailers and designers throughout the West on the latest styles.

    How HPU helped you get there: “HPU did a fantastic job informing students of internships and openings with local companies in the area. HPU sent out an email when I was a junior in college announcing that there was an internship opening with Bernhardt Furniture to work with people from all over the world in the Bernhardt Showroom during the Spring 2013 Furniture Market. After interviewing for the position, I received an offer to come and work during furniture market. Had it not been for HPU’s amazing study abroad program (I had studied abroad in the Rome, Italy the semester before), I would never have had the confidence to apply.

    I loved the experience of meeting new people from all over the world and discovered my passion for furniture and interior design. I returned for the Fall 2013 Furniture Market where I interned as a Southern California Sales Representative. After market finished, I was preparing to graduate and had met with my advisor multiple times. He told me to reach out to whomever I could; you never know where it might lead. With his advice I reached out to multiple Bernhardt Furniture Sales Representatives seeing if there were any open positions. By late November a full time position had opened up, I applied, and a few short weeks later, I was on a flight to Denver for my final interview. I accepted the position and could not be more thrilled or thankful.

    An indication that the shat ain't worth them high as prices

  • hottlanta

    I know a single, proud, happy black woman who made black history and stopped the generation education curse in her family with having her kids as the first one's to go to/finish a 4 year institution.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    DIES. She went to High Point University. Welp. 336 stand up *snorts*

  • nucynu25

    He got some real , deep issues.

  • Cinnamon Brown

    Really ?!? I haven't brought an LV in a long time they don't offer the free repair anymore ?!? Wow....

  • SpillyNillie

    Nope! I do it ALL the time. Especially to my cousin. I answer her calls and all I can here is...who in my refrigerator?!?! Who is that at my front door?!?!?! Stop hitting him!!! Go take off my shoes!!!

    Girl, BYE!!!!

  • Cinnamon Brown

    She must have changed.... She was a regular at my friend's SA restaurant in BKlyn... She was always real cool...

  • yoni

    And the tarnished T&C necklaces as well.

  • I aint the one

    This! It's all for the name/label. Many, MANY retailers do this. Not just high-end either. During my college days I worked for Children's Place and they would have us destroy inventory they no longer wanted to sell for various reasons. I'm talking nice, quality snowboots and all. I was upset, cause I thought about all the kids in poverty that could have really used those fukking boots and clothes. ?

  • yoni

    That get's a "Hel....*click*" OFF TOP!

  • Cinnamon Brown

    They sure do burn them... But that is to maintain the price point.... Why would you buy full price if you could wait and get it at a lower price....

  • yoni

    If you don't mind me asking, how much was the necklace?

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    And I wear gold. Gold is always fluctuating but usually high. Their silver items are so classy and brilliant, it can pass for white gold which is why i wear it. The bracelet I got from years of service working was silver and gold tone. I just love their items.

  • SpillyNillie

    And then calls back like "why you hang up?" Really? She tried it!

  • I aint the one

    Yup...it hurts the brand.

  • iWasteTime

    Yes ma'am. My momma is the biggest culprit of this !! Ugh gets my blood boiling

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    Thats good to know, I hope she didn't and stay humbled.

    Africans can be snooty though.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Lupita is stunning!

  • yoni

    I do it to the Drs. here too! #doesntdiscriminate #equalopportunityhangerupinyourfacer

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    That bracelet I got at the time which was a 2 tone Figaro joint was like 69 bucks at the time of the gift. It's probably worth diddly squat now.

  • Buttercup

    Yep. In the 21st century. They sure did. Bastids.

  • yoni

    BOOM!

  • Miany

    he is disgusting

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    Damn shame... just like burning old money...we used to call it Mutt Money at the banks.

  • SpillyNillie

    And down right MEAN! I've met a couple from Canada who were really sweet...

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    I know this would intrigue you...and or make you cackle.

    So you went to furniture mart to this, or maybe it's the wrong person

  • Ro

    shes beautiful!!!

  • nucynu25

    LOL ..you so mature. I still want drag his lop sided head ass. If I was that woman in the video, we would've fought bc I will slap tha piss out someone for calling me out my name.

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    Yeah and no. I sent it to @Sandra, but she don't pay me no mind.

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    Damn thing made the Washington Damn post

  • iWasteTime

    **snickers**

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    It's a the Letter T. But I get you.

  • I aint the one

    Yup it was they asses. High-end houses, most of them, are staunchly racist and have some sick histories of how they made owning and oppressing US trendy and fashionable. Yet, our people will break their necks to support these businesses. I'm not saying don't indulge, but don't tie your worth to these brands. The act of doing this is just eerily ironic given the historical context.

  • NegroDamus

    I know her personally and her financial issues. She one of those passive aggressive people that whines about stuff, in hopes that you run to rescue them, instead of just asking for the help. Once i offered her a position and did the run down of the ins/outs the whining started immediately...smh

  • Fendi

    Not to my knowledge. And I've been a customer for over 2 decades.

  • nucynu25

    They know exactly what they be doing..

  • Fendi

    Seriously?!. ??

  • jussaying

    yeah they do that all the time.. H&M slashes their used clothes before throwing them out. i think they came under fire a few years ago and that's why they created the 'conscious' line.

  • jussaying

    ugh i had a friend in hs that would do that mess. call me up to talk to someone that's physically there i'd always hang up on her.

  • NegroDamus

    I said that about people that apply for min wage work. know everything up front, won't have any objections at hiring. then get in, complain about hours and have thee nerve to want $15 hr to do menial tasks.

  • I aint the one

    Seductively glanced over..

  • I aint the one

    Hello, may I speak to Barbara
    Barbara, this is Shirley
    You might not know who I am
    But the reason I am calling you is because
    I was going through my
    Old man's pockets this morning
    And I just happened to find your name and number
    So woman to woman
    I don't think it's being anymore than fair
    To call you and let you know
    Where I'm coming from
    Now Barbara
    I don't know how you're gonna take this
    But whether you be cool
    Or come out of a bag on me
    You see it doesn't really make any difference

  • nucynu25

    YESSSSSS...COME THROUGH

  • Yardgirl

    God helps those who help themselves!! She looking for a handout! Smh...

  • I aint the one

    I love you for this ?

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    Silver will tarnish babe, it just needs to be polished. Plus, I can't wear anything that will turn my neck green or break me out.

    I just don't wear it anymore, it was gift was ex husband. As far as bags, I've had bags for decades, that I still use, it's rarely I need a upgrade, never tears or rips. Did have my ex cut one up though....

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    It did??? Wow.

  • iWasteTime

    At this desk in tears when I saw it!

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    Really? They were denying up until this am

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Lupita is stunning.

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    I have a few colleagues and we are very cool. The ones who don't know you that are educated, parents are immigrants and don't speak English, esp the women and highly unbearable with the attitudes...Like it's our fault we are Americanized.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Blah, blah, blah. Guess her check cleared, too.

  • yoni

    I know, sweetie. Those necklaces tarnish all the time. When I see folks STILL rocking them after they've went from silver to green to brown, I always think they got them from the flea market. But they still wear them "because it came from Tiffany's." Tuh.

  • Cinnamon Brown

    Wow... Maybe that was a overseas thing then....

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    I thought I was the only one still wearing gold. Everyone I know wears silver

  • Just Keya

    I don't know why they kept trying to say she didn't. Any idiot could see she did. Smh.

  • yoni

    MY BFF does it now. *click* #iaintsorry

  • iWasteTime

    so this clearly educated woman didn't runt the speech through turn it in or since she was told it was from Michelle Obama double check the source, she just put it in the speech and said 2 tears one bucket ?

  • Yardgirl

    Hell yeah! And you worked for what you have. I make no apologies for what I have because I worked my way from the bottom up.

  • yoni

    Yes.

  • Just Keya

    ???

  • I aint the one

    Could NOT have been any woman in my family cause by the time the police got there, he woulda been picking up them rusty ass teeth from the ground. ?

    I don't know about mature, my petty is pretty severe at times? But as a Black woman, I'm just tahd of wasting energy combating these low-lifes, whose issues aren't even about Black women.

  • SummerBaby

    I have a necklace & bracelet. Mine hasn't tarnished yet, but I do polish it. I did see some knock off pieces at the Black Expo this past weekend.

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    Oh My God...
    I'll be like Chris Tucker on the sidelines in Dead Presidents!!!...like all this...

  • yoni

    Those bitches will mildew, tear, get yellow underarm pit stains just like the Walmart graphic tee's will.

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    I clean all my tarnished jewelry. There is something great out there Tarn-X, My parents swear by it,

  • yoni

    LMAO I was asking @JustLookin about HER necklace. LOL I LOVE a Figaro bracelet. #dainty

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    Yeah, I am feeling some kinda way, but I still love my Figaros...

  • nicelyput32

    Wait a min, you don't wait to see if they're wrapping up the conversation??? ???

  • yoni

    See. LOL Polish it like with "clear nail polish" polish? Or with a soft cloth polish? You know folks use to put clear on their shit. #hoodwax

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    Is that in NY Summer?

  • yoni

    NOPE! When I say hello, you spose to start talkin'........TO ME!

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    lolol...Yup, them fake drug dealer earrings... Bamboo joints! I used up a whole bottle of polish on them thangs! glad I wasn't the only one!

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    It was embarrassing

  • Just Keya

    Mr used to do that Shyt to me. Used to burn me up. However, as soon as I started to do that to him he stopped that Shyt. #AintNoFunWhenTheRabbitHasTheGun

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Instead of just apologizing as she should have.

  • nicelyput32

    CRINE???

  • Just Keya

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    DEAD @ Man wig! LOL!!!!!!

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    Yeah, same here...Those two pieces mean nothing. I'm waiting to go to one of the jewelry parties to to get rid of it.

    It take me about 4 hours to clean silver I have in my hutch, I only use it at the holidays.

  • yoni

    Folks HATE when you pull a "them on them". LOL

  • Just Keya

    Just stop. You can't hang up on your own momma. That's law.

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    Basically

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Yea it's a wonder they didn't walk out.

  • yoni

    The ONLY thing I use my clear on is my NAILS......now. LOL

  • Cinnamon Brown

    That is because they fall into the trap set by media as well as they are taut they aren't the sons of slaves..... They aren't us... We aren't the same or a least that is what I've been told... But in her case ppl don't get that you can't take everybody with you as they just aren't built to go... Maybe somebody somewhere is being a hater... Maybe or maybe she thinks this is forever and she doesn't get once you get "there" the hard work is staying..... But we'll see with this new movie coming out...

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    IF they brown they probably didn't come for Tiffany and probably Tarnisha or Tedwards

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    She always called me back. She's a lot better about that now. But she used to be the worst.

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    The only thing I use my clear on is my stockings. I be too mad when I get them runs! They need to looks like a rail station before I go out and by other pairs! Nope...won't do it!

  • Cinnamon Brown

    Why nothing about Beyoncé screams classic.... She wouldn't be a good fit.... Tiffany appeals to those that remember the brand.....Beyoncé is too over the top for the Tiffany brand....

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    Thank You...lol
    Every body in Jersey had that damn Necklace... I couldn't do it. I am different. Isn't this one of them?

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    I agree.
    That New movie looks like a tear jerker... I will be watching.

  • yoni

    Brown and tarnished are the same to me. LOL

  • Tammie Reed

    She doesn't make me want to go and shop at Tiffanys at all. I haven't been in that store in years! Everytime I go in there I don't feel comfortable and I never see anything I like. Its like jewelry for my grannyma. #OkBye

  • jussaying

  • https://www.facebook.com/Tobi.Velicia TVJ

    I feel bad for this daughters.

  • hottlanta

    I work with engineers (black/white) all day and trust me the money/financial conversations are different. They don't sit up and think they did something because they spent a couple of thou on a purse trying to outclass somebody. They talk about the size of their boats and looking for a pool service for their pools. They travel to Hong Kong while black folks brag about going to Aruba. They don't sit around and brag about their 4 bedroom/ 1/2 bath house and Range Rover either allll day. They don't tell people what they do or where they work as to see who has a better job competition. (Yall know we do that). If you put on clothes looking like a flash card from kindergarten you are po. I love it. But I do kinna miss the one's around the office who brag on their 4 bedroom 2 1/2 bath house all day as if the CEO house is smaller than theirs.

  • Mizz76

    ????

  • hottlanta

    You are right. I went to Paris over 20 years ago when you got a lot of bang for the buck and the euro was good and saw that long line I was like whoa. I was at the airport last year and ole girl thought she was doing it with her Coach hat, bag and shoes. She looking like a walking Reading Rainbow billboard. Couldn't tell her she wasn't sharp. I just shook my head.

  • hottlanta

    Ask OJ.

  • hottlanta

    You here that is good enough for me. BRAVO!!! WE all have a story.

  • hottlanta

    Thanks and if someone talk shyte to me I tell them my married sisters/brothers kids didn't even finish high school so what is their excuse since folks always say kids from a single parent household don't care about education.

  • Cinnamon Brown

    Alllllllll facts right here.... And they act so nochanlent about it.... Because its second nature.... I think we brag because if you can buy it that means you made it not...... You just became a slave on another level... Ppl with money make the brand the. Brand don't make them... I'm grateful for what I've seen and what I have and even for what I don't have.... Because baby..... There is nothing worse than having money and owing somebody with more money..... The shady ways of the rich... No scratch that the shady ways of the wealthy........ Buuuddddyyyyyyyy !!!!!

  • Li

    I read fashionista blog and it's wonderful. The thing is, luxury brands are suffering sales all around. The best known - Yves St Laurent, Lauren, Kors, are not as appealing exp. to the younger crowd. The younger folk are satisfied with fake jewelry and knock off clothing from H&M and Top Shop.
    The luxury designers depended on the Asians to keep their sales high because Americans and Europeans aren't buying those luxury brands anymore.

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    the hecht company was a department store that was bought by the May company...macys..but they eventually went out of business.

    If Tiffany is trying to appeal to the younger generation they should have picked someone else...........................these kids really are not checking for Lupita like that

  • hottlanta

    I refuse to buy a $10,000 purse and I don't have $10,000 in the bank. All I have in my purse are my keys and wallet. The only designer signs I believe in are sales, clearance and liquidations.

  • Indies beauty

    This is cool. Lupita always looks gorge in her ads. I think she is a great choice because she appeals to a broad age range.
