Mini USA – Defy Labels

BMW’s brand has chosen to dub their ad “Defy Labels” and features Serena Williams, Tony Hawk, T-Pain, and a few other athletes and actors. The spot sends the message that labels only serve to box you in and can easily be broken.

T-Mobile – Restricted Bling

T-Mobile tapped Drake for their ad which plays out on the set of his “Hotline Bling” video as other carriers offer notes on making some changes to his lyrics. The ad serves to highlight the service restrictions of the other carriers and the simplicity of T-Mobile.

[Fly-LIGHTS] “LaLa’s Full Court Life” Premiere Party…

LaLa Anthony was all smiles last night as she hosted the Premiere Party for the return of her VH1 Show LaLa’s Full Court Life. LaLa rocked one of the hottest patterns to hit the streets recently, the Stars pattern from the Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall 2011 Collection. And she looked pretty FLY. The Premiere Party held at The Mark yesterday in Los Angeles, California.

As to expected some of LaLa’s celebrity friends were in toe including her husband, New York Knick, Carmelo Anthony, Co-Star of the Reality Show.

Hip Hop Couple Snoop Dogg and his wife Shante Broadus were on deck.

Tennis Phenom, Serena Williams was in the building. Seems like she left all her new found fashion sense in the hotel lobby. She looks absolutely #UnAmazing. No shade, but I expect this from Venus.

She looks like a dude named Otis.

Come on Serena! Smh.

LaLa’s long time friend Tyrese was on hand for the festivities.

As was the lovely Gabrielle Union.

Shaun Robinson was also in the place to help LaLa Celebrate.

“LaLa’s Full Court Life” premieres August 22nd on VH1 at 9/8 Central.

Look for full recaps on SFPL.

FLY-LIGHTS: Chris Brown & Serena Williams…

Chris Brown attended the John Varvatos 10th anniversary  celebration at the John Varvatos in NYC, yesterday.

As is always the case with Chris there’s ONE item that most go. In this case its either the belt or the shirt. Two prints should never be mixed. And they both throw the other off… the look would have been solidified with a solid polo or button up.

Almost Chris.

Serena Williams turns up her FLY after the jump…
