Bruno Mars and Cardi B is breaking the internet on this Throwback Thursday morning with their new visual to the song “Finesse”.

If you are a Bruno Mars fan like myself, you know how Bruno has a magic touch with connecting with his fans and making hits that make you rush to the dance floor. The original track is on Bruno’s sophomore album, 24K Magic. This new album gives you a ton of vintage vibes.

Its also only right that Bruno selects the Scarlet raptress Cardi B for the Remix.  Their energy on set compliments each other perfectly.

Bruno Mars dedicates this eye popping music video to what he considers to be his favorite T.V shows of all time.

“Finesse” has a lot of nostalgic 90’s vibes.  So it’s only right that the video underlines that.

The video pays homage to the 90’s show, In Living Color as the set is a replica of the In Living Color stage.  The dapper duo rocks 90s fashion in colorful clips while breaking out some incredible choreography.

TBT: Throwback (Brand) Thursday -The Nestlé Wonderball

By London

5b7a48cb8cb2f5bd1cf279c5d25c4b8bIf you grew up in the 90’s,  you had to have Wonder-Wondered what’s in a Wonder Ball at least one time in your life.  This American brand of chocolate was manufactured by Nestlé in the early 1990’s.  Originally called Nestlé Magic Ball, the product’s slogan was “What’s in the Wonder Ball?”   Nestlé co-branded with Disney where the hollow spherical chocolate candy shell was filled with candy and small Disney and Pokémon figurines.  The jingle then was:

“What’s inside Nestle Magic Ball? What’s inside the sparkling foil? What’s inside the sparkling foil? What’s inside the chocolate ball? What’s inside the Nestle Chocolate? What’s inside the ball and pop? What’s inside the ball and pop lid? Wow it’s Hercules! Wow it’s Simba! Dalmatians, or Aladdin. All from Disney. They’re hidden inside! A surprise in a ball, in chocolate, in foil in a box! What’s inside? What’s inside? What will you find in yours?”

Years later, under the management of Frankford Candy & Chocolate Company, re-branding through eye-catching packaging and a catchier jingle, this chocolatey snack is a fond memory to many late 80’s and 90’s babies nationwide.  Check out the clip below and relive your childhood with this blast from the past.

Introducing Anne Sophie Madsen’s Spring/ Summer 2014 Collection:

Far from traditional, Anne Sophie’s Madsen’s unique and futuristic designs look like they bare fit for the cast of the Fifth Element.

Popular for creating futuristic female warriors, her S/S 2014 collection, Post Human Speed, Sophie Madsen looks to three boys for inspiration: Kaspar Hauser, a young German claiming to have grown up in total isolation, Inochi, the school boy alien robot dreamed up by Takashi Murakami, and Rubber Johnny, a boy able to contort his body into unnatural positions, depicted in a short film by Chris Cunningham. Questioning the human body and identity just as these boys do, Madsen realizes her vision in abnormal excesses and disproportions. The collection also features signature Madsen illustrations, which reference romantic portraits and late 90s Japanese pop art. As tech-forward chic continues to be a mainstay on fashion’s horizon, this Danish designer nails it: fresh, romantic, clean, and completely ahead of the pack.
