estlgirly: Let me clarify:

estlgirly: Let me clarify: She has a pretty eye COLOR. Tyra should really teach her to SMILE with her eyes. Hmm u said it. Lala has pretty eye's but she is blah as far as everything else is concerned.

Does she wear contacts? I

Does she wear contacts? I don't remember her having those eyes back in her MTV days. Anyway, she looks like she got butt implants as the sailor in the 1st pic. Girl ain't never had no booty! Guess Kim K put her on to her doc!! lol

What's up with this

What's up with this photographer having women play themselves and a man that they love? Other celebs have spoken about doing shoots where they play the husband and the wife. He's already done 3 or more female celebs like this in photo shoots.

Teri: She’s of Puerto

Teri: She’s of Puerto Rican decent. She claims she isn’t black; however, there are black PR’s, and to me, her brother looks like a light-skinned brother. She says she’s not black, so I’ll go with that.Anyway, I am NOT feeling the pictures. I think she’s a very pretty lady, but these pics do not do her justice. However, with that said, Melo? Whew!!! oh lol i knew she was probably some kind of hispanic or something. she looks like she got some black-PR somewhere down the line idk thats just me. but that 2nd pic is kinda funky looking lol the first ones nice. but these pics arent that great...the photographer did a good job, its just like everyone else said she has those dead eyes.

Not the best pics but damn

Not the best pics but damn ladies have you ever heard the term if you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all.True we are all entitled to our opinions but if you must share your opinion do you have to go so hard? Im sure she reads this ish and although celebrities may have more green backs than the rest of us they have feelings...Damn I just wonder what you harsh ass critics look like?

What are these Derek Blanks photos for? Is it for a cause or something? I never see them anywhere but on here. I think LaLa is cute, I think she has gorgeous eyes. She looks okay in these photos.

he he he he: i’M SORRY, BUT

he he he he: i’M SORRY, BUT lA lA IS NOT ATTRACTIVE, AND THIOSE PICS PROVED IT. SHE LOOKS LIKE A TOAD. should enhance your features, not make them scarey! she’s the perfect example that light isn’t always right. Walking around looking like a toad with makeup on. Good lawd! You must be black as coal and always been passed up for light skin woman to make as stupid a** comment like this. The attraction of person doesn't depend on if they are snow white or pitch black, beauty is beauty. In 2009 its said to see someone some is still making comments with a slave mentality. Whateva La La is doing Carmelo must like it (as they are still together) and I would rather be a big pockets well dress toad anyday instead of a broke hater!!!!!!!!

LaLa needs to stop trying to be kim kardashian cuz she is ugly....she is such an attention whore she is doing nothing meaningful with her life and YBF Lala and Carmelo are not engaged they are just boyfriend and girlfriend she go be like tiny and have 3 engagement rings I doubt he marry her...Her fashion game has only stepped up since Carmelo started dropping child support checks......Because before that her fashion game was a hot mess.

The Hostile One: Do people

The Hostile One: Do people ask Derek Blanks to shoot this photos? ‘Cause I never see them end up anywhere but on this blog. How narcissistic! I think I’m going to get my digital camera out, and have me and my girls go to the park in Brooklyn, put on tons of make-up, take shots of us on swings. Then I’ll email the pics to YBF. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

LaLa is a cute girl. She is

LaLa is a cute girl. She is not bringining anything into the photoshoot. The makeup is heavy because it is supposed to be very showgirl like. If she had brought more passion with her eyes and body language it could have been nice. I personally think, not being funny, that she is more believable as the guy in the picture.
