Spotted on StyleWatch, Kendall Jenner, 14-year-old half-sister of Kim, Kloe and Kourtney Kardashian, featured in a fashion campaign for Forever 21’s Twist Collection. According to the press release, the sixth collection from Forever 21 Twist features the themed story entitled Rocker Babes with a Twist, and will hit stores at the end of January 2010. Channeling rockabilly style, this collection mixes animal prints with polka dots, plaids and rock-steady graphics, all anchored by a retro Fifties color palette of blacks, reds and blues. Kendall Jenner will be featured as one of the faces of Rocker Babes with a Twist.

Lil’ sis looks cute in the shoot, what do you think about her campaign? I think she pretty much looks age appropriate : )

Alicia Keys in Carerra; Looking Good With A Broken Heart

If you have ever had a good relationship "gone bad," you will love to cry (and hum) to the new song “Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart," by Alicia Keys; which is the latest single from her new album The Elements of Freedom.

In the (new) video clip, Keys plays a seductive and modern heroine who has extraordinary powers. These powers allow her to save the lives of all people, except for the person she loves for whom her arms turn into a deadly weapon. Keys who stars and sings in the video is fashionable in "modern" retro everyday wear; including wearing a pair of really cool retro inspired Panamerika 1 sun glasses by Carrera. The Panamerika 1 sun glasses from the Carrera Vintage collection are inspired by the style of the 1980s and immediately catch your attention because of their unique metal frame in the form of a tear which makes them recognizable at once.

Fashionistas be warned ... if you want to be ahead of the fashion curve, the Carrera look is starting to spread among many music stars. Fashion icon and singer Britney Spears for example, is wearing Carrera glasses in her clip:

Key's talent is confirmed worldwide as a 2-time Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum recording artist (and actress,) and her voice has often been called one of the most beautiful voices on the planet. I love Bob Dylan’s quote about Alicia Keys. “There’s nothing about that girl I don’t like,” he told Rolling Stone in 2006 when asked why he had mentioned her in Thunder on the Mountain, the opening song of his Modern Times album.

Suffice it to say; "Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart” will surely be a new success for Key's. Everone loves a good love song, a good crying song and a good voice.
