New Black Barbies Are Here+First Lady Michelle O. & Oprah Lobby For Chicago

First Lady Michelle O. looked fab in black and white while arriving into Copenhagen yesterday. She's there to lobby the World Olympics organization to nominate Chicago to host the 2016 Summer Olympics. Rio is in the lead reportedly.  But with a push from Mrs. O and Oprah, who also arrived there yesterday, it could be in the US.  Nice.

Mattel® announced yesterday the launch of So In Style™, a new line of black dolls by Barbie® featuring more authentic-looking facial features such as fuller lips, a wider nose, more distinctive cheek bones and curlier hair. Many folks are up in arms calling it overly stereotypical and isn't good for little black girls' psyche. Here's a snippet from the press release: So In Style™ (S.I.S.™) was developed and inspired by Barbie® designer of 12 years, Stacey McBride-Irby, an African-American mother of two who wanted to create a line of dolls more reflective of her daughter and community. The So In Style™ line features Grace™, Kara™ and Trichelle™ dolls, three best friends who are all about fashion, fun and friendship. Each of the dolls features its own unique personality and style and reflects one of three varying skin tones. The S.I.S.™ line also introduces a mentoring theme; each doll is accompanied by a smaller doll or “little sister” and has different interests – from music and math to science and drill team. The big and little sister dolls are meant to introduce and inspire girls with mentoring themes. Here's the three dolls:

Would Somebody PLEASE Get Kanye Some Damn Chicken?!+More Flicks Of Rihanna Overseas

If you thought Kanye was a changed man, think again. He was wildin' out at Common's benefit concert he performed at several days ago at the Hollywood Palladium. All over some chicken. Here's what VIBE had to say about the incident: The rapper was allegedly upset over his not being offered food while in the dressing room backstage. After spotting a man eating chicken, West blurted, "Why wasn't I offered chicken? You want me to perform for free, [and] everyone is eating... why am I not eating?" When the waitress explained that he never asked for food, 'Ye yelled, "Well, I'm asking now!". After receiving chicken, he allegedly proceeded to take a bite and then throw the rest in the trash. Meanwhile, the rapper's beau Amber Rose, stood silent, while other celebrities backstage watched in awe. What you said? He aint no diva??

Here's more pics of Rihanna and her BFF Melissa chillin around Venice right before they jetted off to Paris yesterday:

Don't know if this is a photoshoot, candids, or both. Looks like fun either way.

Neffie, Frankie, & The Kids Celebrate+Toccara's New Look

Neffie threw a birthday party for her 7 year old daughter Christaria at Dave and Buster's in ATL this past weekend.  And of course, Grandma Frankie and Auntie Elite and Solow were all there to celebrate:

Freddy O copped the pics of the family time.  Snoop's wife Shante was there to see her brand new Godbaby (Neffie and Solow's newborn daughter) Nylah.  Wait...are they wearing "Are You Serious?" shirts?  So Neffie's getting her own "fashion line" too?  I'm blinded by eyelashes and grease right now.  So I'll reserve my comments for later.  More pics under the cut.... And Derek Blanks shot a new photoshoot for Ms. Toccara.  She's going for a new more natural look and took some photos to show it off:

Cute.  The last one reminds me of Eva the Diva though.  More pics of her as well when you read the rest....

NEWSY ROUND-UP

Mr. and Mrs. Smith are hosting the Nobel Peace Prize concert going down in Norway in December.  Wyclef and others have already been slated to perform.  Congrats to them.

Tyson Beckford said what now?   He was recently asked if he had to spend the night with one man, who would it be and why?  *LMAO at this question*  His response: "I don't actually go that way, though I notice a lot of people think I do. But umm, you know what, if Imma do it, I'm going for [Barack] Obama. If I got with him, I could run the country. If I was that way, Obama, I'd be gunning for you brother! I'd be the one in control. That's if I was that way. Who you gonna go for? Will Smith? Somebody pretty like that? Not to say Obama's not pretty. But I'd go straight for Obama because you got power then. You could run red lights and just wild out. And I'd have Michelle [Obama] hold the camera!" Whoa. More when you read the rest...

MORNING FLICKS: Jennifer Hudson, Eve, Serena & Vanessa Williams

Jennifer Hudson performed "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" at the Netflix screening of  Wizard of Oz yesterday in Central Park.  And she gushed to People about her barely 2 month old son David Otunga, Jr.: "He's the cutest thing in the world! There are no words for it. He's the best. It's just amazing – us discovering each other, me becoming a mom." And she even plays her songs like "Let It Be Me" for him when he cries: "He seems like he's very interested in music already. The other night he was having a fit screaming, and someone turns on the music and he just stops and calms down. And I was exactly the same way as a baby." The memory of her mother gets her through the harder times: "I think she was a great example of being a mother, so when [my son] first got home, I was like, 'Everything I do will be out of love,' " said Hudson. "That's what drives me in the middle of the night when I'm knocked out sleeping and he wakes up." Awwww how precious!  She also said she's actually looking forward to the Holidays this season since it's Jr.'s first one.  We're still impatiently waiting to see this little bundle of cuteness Jenny...

Eve rocked an interesting Dolce and Gabbana Victorian look to her Whip It! premiere last night in L.A.

Serena hit up the premiere as well.  Cute Gryphon tank she's rocking.

And Vanessa Williams rocked that Wilhemina Slater scowl we all know and love on the set of "Ugly Betty" yesterday. More pics of these ladies when you read the rest...
