A Few of Her Most Beautiful Things
By Alannah O’Neill
Queen Latifah is one of those rare celebrities who’s so recognizable that everyone feels like they know her intimately. It’s not surprising, considering her resume reads like a pop culture guide– first lady of hip hop turned television personality and Oscar nominated movie star. In spite of these high profile accomplishments, Latifah is a celebrity who doesn’t disappoint: her off-screen personality is as enigmatic and warm as her on-screen characters.

No sun? No problem. It’s time to eat in Grenada.
Grenada in the sunshine -- Not what I saw this morning

I wouldn’t say that I am the beach-type person, but when I found out that I would be going to Grenada at the end of November, I was honestly over the moon excited.

Christian Louboutin has taken investment dressing to new heights with ‘Peace of Shoe.’ Inspired by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Muhammad Yunus‘ Creating A World Without Poverty, the shoe designer produced a limited-edition look to benefit microfinance on behalf of the Grameen Foundation. All proceeds from the sale of the shoes aid the nonprofit organization – a leader in the fight against poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, the Middle East/North Africa and the Americas – in providing small loans to individuals, especially women, seeking to establish or expand small and self-sufficient businesses. The silk peep-toe platforms retail for US$1,495, and are available in different colours in three of Louboutin’s stateside stores: pink in Los Angeles, lavender in Miami and champagne in New York. Fashionable philanthropy? I’m soled!
