GLAM SCOOP: Solange Knowles Signed by Next Models, June Ambrose Gets New Premiere Date, Nicki Minaj Wants Vogue Cover
Happy Monday, Glamazons!
How was your weekend? Here in NYC we had some relatively warm weather so my weekend was glamtastic! I dined at The Hurricane Club and Pop Burger with Glamazon Kamille, went ice skating at Bryant Park, went galavanting to a diner with friends in the wee hours of the morning and just enjoyed life. Could a girl ask for anything better?
Now it seems like it’s back to the wretched cold weather, but hopefully not for too long (my fingers are like icicles as I type this right now, lol).
To start off your week right, I’ve got the latest fashion and beauty news. Let’s go!
Solange Knowles Signed by Next Models
Glamazon Solange Knowles is having a pretty glam January. She became an aunt over the weekend when her sister Beyonce gave birth to a baby girl, Blue Ivy and now she has been signed to Next Models. She told Vogue, “Artistic expression is invaluable to me in all walks of my career and I am so excited to continue to develop this path along with such an amazing team at Next Model Management. I feel right at home working with people who have worked beside such creative forces in the world.” Congrats to Solange on all her 2012 ventures, I’m sure she has a lot more in store for us! [Vogue]
Nicki Minaj Is Trying To Land a Vogue Cover
Nicki Minaj is trying to break barriers for women and I can’t knock her hustle. The New York Times reports that the queen of Barbies is trying to land a Vogue cover. With all that she has been doing in fashion lately, maybe it’s well-deserved. And she IS besties with Anna Wintour (if her Fashion Week front row sightings mean anything). Her publicist Cortez Bryant said “That’s on my wish list,” for Nicki. Anything is possible. [Styleite]

June Ambrose’s VH1 Show Gets New Premiere Date
Glamazons, we have to wait just a tad bit longer to watch June Ambrose‘s highly-anticipated VH1 show, Styled by June. The debut date has been changed to March 19th. Hopefully, that means more surprises will be in store for us when it does premiere! Is anyone else like super excited for this show to finally be on air?! [June Ambrose's Twitter]

Mindy Kaling is Charlotte Ronson’s Muse
Personally, I just love when my fave designers/actresses team up and it turns out Charlotte Ronson is a great friend of Mindy Kaling. Mindy tweeted that Charlotte named her double-ended blusher/bronzer cream stick after her. The bronzer comes in two shades: one named after “The Office” star and one after SNL star Abbey Elliott. Geesh, if one of my friends ever becomes a famous designer, I hope they name one of their pieces after me! [Racked]
