It's A Glam Thing


Posted on: January 24th, 2015


Mixing black with navy, gold with silver, polkadots with sequins, wearing white after labor day, and heels with sweat pants are just a few of the fashion rules that people break these days. The truth is fashion is completely relative. What some people consider high-fashion and beautiful, others regard as mismatched and dreadful. Glamour is in the eye of the beholder, and it comes in many different ways.

Take the company Celebrity Gene for instance. CG is making glamorous jewelry with a twist!

They offer silver pendant necklaces that are not only fashionable and glamorous, but truly one of a kind. At first glance their necklaces may look like any other beautifully crafted jewelry, but as you get closer you see that encased in each pendant is a strand of 100% authentic celebrity DNA. Celebrity Gene has patented a way to extract DNA from past and present celebrities. Some of the celebrities the’ve extracted DNA from are Justin Bieber, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Princess Diana, and Al Capone. Talk about a conversation starter!

While the thought of wearing a celebrities DNA around your neck sounds pretty awesome, our favorite part is that the necklaces are actually super stylish and when you purchase one, they donate funds to charity. They can glam up your favorite white T-shirt or complete a look for a glamorous night out on the town.

Hot or not?!



Posted on: November 28th, 2014


From the moment It’s A Glam Thing stepped into BalletRED’s show at the Broad Stage Theatre in Santa Monica, CA, we knew we weren’t going to experience a ‘regular’ night at the ballet.

Outside the building’s doors was a massive celebrity and media red carpet that saw the likes of stars such as iconic actor Elliot Gould, hip-hop choreographer Shane Sparks, and MTV’s Cameron Moulene & Katherine McNamara, amongst several other celebs, all coming out to support the show’s big debut.


Inside the theatre was an incredible display of art, hanging ballet slippers and composer Jealous Angel on ten-foot stilts overlooking the cocktail reception crowd while playing music for everyone to enjoy as they awaited entrance into the show.

Once the show began, nobody in the audience, myself included, could take their ears/eyes off the stage as the ballerinas, beautifully choreographed by Josie Walsh and their costumes, designed by Kiyomi Hara, had us all wanting more and more. The show consisted of three dance acts: Urban Angels, Convergence, and Texture of Time, and the flow of each with backing multimedia videos, lights, smoke and music, created an atmosphere unlike any other ballet.


Walking out of the show, It’s A Glam Thing overheard countless people speak of their admiration and respect for the show, and how they wish it didn’t have to end… a great sign for a debut show. It’s with this in mind we cannot wait to see what the BalletRED company has in store for future productions, as they are obviously onto something with their new style of ballet mixed with EDM-type music.

It’s A Glam Thing gives BalletRED two massive thumbs up!

The Gay Groom’s Guide Launches In Hollywood!

Posted on: October 4th, 2014


One of the year’s most talked about books, The Gay Groom’s Guide, finally launched this past week in Hollywood, and It’s A Glam Thing was there to cover all the details!


The guide’s author, Robert Blackmon, brought out some of his celebrity fans/supports such as Judy Tenuta, Jennifer Akerman, Adrienne Janic, Carolyn Hennesy, Kate Linder, and countless others  to his red carpet event at the prestigious Abbey Food & Bar, which was just named one of the world’s greatest gay bars.


In partnership with Marriage Equality USA, Robert’s book has hit a home run with readers both gay and straight, who look to his blunt words and experience to help plan their own weddings. During the actual event, Robert (the author) even dropped on his own knee to renew his wedding vows with his longtime partner Martin, who up until then had only gotten married in Canada, as it wasn’t legal in California at the time yet.

From Florida to Hollywood With Kaleina Cordova

Posted on: September 3rd, 2014


Kaleina Cordova is a young actress originally from Florida that has just moved to Hollywood to continue pursing her acting career. The beautiful actress has recently been seen in the hit movie, Step Up Revolution and television series, The Glades.

Miss Cordova took some time while running around in the land of the stars to chat about her career, celebrity crushes, fashion and how she is finding the Hollywood scene…


How has the Internet helped your career move forward?

The internet has been like a friend to me, I come to it with all my problems and confusion. Besides that I’m constantly watching YouTube videos of movie B-rolls, behind the scenes footage, audition tapes, etc. They all provide insight.

Who is your celebrity crush right now?

That’s always a juicy question! Right now I have to say Jamie Campbell Bower – he’s a killer musician and actor.

What would you like to be remembered for?

Acting wise, I would love to be remembered for my role versatility. As a person, I would just love to make a difference in someone’s life somehow; even if it’s just one person remembering me that’s enough.

What charities are close to your heart?

There’s a great charity back home [Florida] called Caring Couture. It’s a non-profit scarf organization that is trying to empower employment opportunities for people with special needs. Payton, a child with Down syndrome, hand painted every silk scarf in the collection. I have this strong desire to help people that deserve a brighter light. That’s another benefit of this industry; you can use the spotlight to promote things that are more important. One single person doesn’t need millions of dollars to buy trivial things. You hear a lot about charities that only contribute, like, %20 of its donations to the actual cause and that’s deceiving. I want to promote charities that are genuine and selfless. I aspire to construct a charity people can depend on someday.

What trends in fashion do you LOVE and HATE?

Honestly, I’m getting tired of everything being see through and cropped! I’m not a huge follow of trends but I do love seeing people get creative with their sense of style because I know I am! I love layering and mix n matching patterns!

And finally, what are some of your upcoming Fall “glam” tips to look fabulous?

WEAR BOOTS! I love boots, people used to make fun of me in middle school beacuse I used to wear combat boots (prior to them being “in”) I found them at Goodwill one day and though they added a little something to my floral dress! I also love wearing deep plum lipstick in the winter. When in doubt throw on some lipstick and a pair of boots!
