Gabby Douglas on cover of December Essence - so glam

Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas graces the cover Essence magazine's December issue. The gold medal around her neck beams; a reminder of Gabby's amazing athletic strength. She's rocking the heck out a strapless little black dress (It's Notte by Marchesa for those that must have it.) Her teeny tiny waist is wrapped in a glittering gold bow. And her hair is flawless, but it's supposed to be - she's in glamazon mode.

Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas graces the cover Essence magazine's December issue. The gold medal around her neck beams; a reminder of Gabby's amazing athletic strength. She's rocking  the heck out a strapless little black dress (It's Notte by Marchesa for those that must have it.) Her  teeny tiny waist is wrapped in a glittering gold bow. And her hair is flawless, but it's supposed to be - she's in glamazon mode.

I think Gabby looks great: So glam. So phenomenal. So beautiful.

And more importantly highlighting Gabby on the magazine's annual Women of the Year issue helps bring home the message that a healthy lifestyle is real beauty.

So remember ladies: stay in shape it's good for your heart, your mind your body and your soul. You can always get your hair done - or have some sewn in - but living with your best body, that's a lifestyle choice.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
