Versace's Spring collection was one of my absolute favorites. Donatella's use of hearts, zippers & the structure of her dresses & jackets was phenomenal. Both her monochrome looks & prints were beautiful.
For the Spring ad we see models Kate Moss & Gisele Bundchen.
Kate Moss is timeless. She is so beautiful, I just adore these ads. I love the illusion of the glass banister over the ocean.
Jump for the other two ads.

I naturally have sloppy handwriting, because I write so fast, I never thought more about it.
Well, AOL used an expert to give meanings behind the way people write. This is what she said about messy handwriting:
"Messy handwriting can be a good thing. You could be very bright and very creative, but messy handwriting could mean you're thinking quickly because your brain is moving very fast. Perfectly neat handwriting is not necessarily a good thing. If someone's handwriting is too neat, they may not be able to be spontaneous."
I also write big...here's what they said about that:
"When you write large, you feel free. A person who likes to be seen will have writing that's noticeable and free. If you try and write really, really tiny, you need to focus more and block out the rest of the world."

Diddy and Ciroc vodka have collabed with City Taxi & Limousine Commission and E! Entertainment to give away thousands of debit cards with up to $15 on 'em.
“New York is the world’s most iconic New Year’s Eve City, so let’s lead by example and show everyone that a sophisticated holiday celebration doesn’t just end when the ball drops, but when everyone gets home safely.”
They'll be handed out in Times Square and Chelsea’s nightclub areas between 11PM on New Year’s Eve and 3AM on New Year’s Day.
Great idea, but $15? c'mon, what if you gotta get back to Brooklyn? You ain't making it no where with $15.
But hey it's something
Have a safe New Years guys!

On January 3rd, Paula Abdul will return to her cheerleading roots as the host of RAH! Paula Abdul's Cheerleading Bowl. The 90 minute special will feature 5 cheerleading squads as they compete in NYC for bragging rights, a spread in American Cheerleader Magazine (I write for them!!!) and a trip to MTV's Spring Break 2009. The teams will showcase their athletic abilities including stunting, tumbling, dancing and overall athleticism and creativity to a panel of judges including Hi-Hat (choreographer, Bring It On and Step Up 2: The Streets) Abdul, Scott Bouchard (UMass-Dartmouth Cheerleading Coach) and Breanna Klinger (NY Jet's dancer). Participating team's include:
-University of Arizona -University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff -University of Montana -University of Miami at Ohio AND
-UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII!!!!!
If you haven't figured it out now, this is monumental for 3 reasons:
A. UH is competing! Hometown love!
B. AC Magazine is involved!
C. Duh, I'm a former cheerleader. And I kind of love it.
The show air's on January 3rd at 12pm eastern on MTV. Check out the video SPOILER below. I didn't watch this because I'm a cheer nerd and it's a SPOILER meaning it will SPOIL the show. So don't watch it if you don't want to know the results before the show airs! 21-7 will not be responsible for any rage that ensues after watching said SPOILER.
Peep our photoshoot! Debuting with the premiere of the website, January 09!
What ya'll think?

21-7 has very interesting Myspace friends.
This one is E., Messenger of the truth. We are the listeners while he tells us what he says is Real Talk.
Honestly I'm mad frazzled today, so I was a bit lost. But it seems to be discussing the connection of Jay-Z with Illuminati, & the New World Order. Basically he's saying Jay isn't the man we want to believe him to be.
Hey all this could be true, but really it sounds like another conspiracy theory to me.
I don't know man...Listen to what Emcee ArSn has to say & tell me what yal think.
