Last week with the theme Almost Famous, MosaMuse gave us a diva-licious, first-class look at stars, designers, models and styles that are “this close” to being famous. AND, they rounded it out with inspiration to help us find our way.
They gave us designers Duro Olowu Will Be A Household Name (fabulous, bold & colorful), Assad Mounser is Almost Famous (bold & colorful too). Models Carola Remer is A Model on the Rise and Lanvin Ditches Its Models (oh my! – for real women of different sizes and ages). Fashion Made-You-Look-Twice Heels; Hemlines on the Rise; Project Runway Season 10 Makes the Cut; and Fashion Statements (head to toe fashions and accessories along with inspirational quotes from the famous…
…Karl Lagerfeld, Diana Vreeland, Alexander McQueen, Audrey Hepburn, Yves Saint Laurent, Whitney Houston, Coco Chanel, Gianni Versace, and Donna Karan). Style On the Rise With Ombre Style (get faded). Stars: Kerry Washington Channels “Ms. Ross” for Vogue Italia and Get to Know the Noisettes (a band once described as one of the “rowdiest” live acts in London, with AMAZING lead singer, Shingai Shoniwa). Helpful tips and inspiration: How to Write Resumes with Results; Why is Negativity So Appealing (let’s ask Jerry Springer and Maury Povich); Success—How to Make It (be your original self, diversify your talents, stay hungry, respect where you are now…); Successfully Quoted 7 Times (more quotes to keep you encouraged and motivated); Make Your Way Prosperous (Make Yourself the Best)!; and step #5 of How to Write a Business Plan: Finding Your Revenue Streams.
I loved MosaMuse’s Checklist to Becoming Famous: look pretty, be at the right place at the right time, start Twitter beef, get on a reality show. LOL! What is fame? For some—like Halle Berry, Sidney Poitier, Tyra, Oprah, JayZ—it’s something earned. Sometimes it’s something borrowed—like with reality stars, “housewives”, lipsync-ers, copy cats, etc. And for others it keeps passing them by, leaving them w-a-n-n-a-b-e-s (can you spell Ray J?).
Webster defines famous as widely known, honored for achievement, excellent, first rate. eHow says it’s hard work and talent OR crazy, dangerous, just plain stupid (Jerry Springer and Maury Povich, again). Just as one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so is the unpredictability of what famous is, does, or becomes.
They say behind every successful person is a great someone or team providing a lot of support. So whether on camera, in the bright lights, or behind the scenes, get established, accepted and recognized for being you. Then you too can be “this close”—or closer—to being Webster’s definition of famous.
MosaMuse told us to make the MOSA our weekend. We did. Now we can’t wait to see what unfolds. If you missed last week, click the “previous entries” button & get caught up. Join the movement. You’ll thank your lucky stars you did!
