Ye’ Turns 40


Today we celebrate Kanye West 40th birthday and whats a better way to honor the former Louis Vuitton Don than with some of his greatest moments in Fashion. Just like we all have a favorite Ye’ album, we all have a favorite Ye’ fashion era. I honestly prefer anything pre 2012 (shade), though the fashion on Yeezus was impressive. I’m not here for the homeless/bodysuit monochromatic look where I have to pay 600 bucks for a sweatshirt that I can get at Walmart. 
So here’s to you Kanye, we hope you give us 40 more years of style.

Balmain/L’Oréal Collaboration


I see myself in Balmain by Loreal! 
Loreal and Balmain have teamed up for a for a lipstick collaboration that will have us all outside of our neighborhood walgreens or rite aid. The 3 theme 12 shade collection will debut in September at Paris Fashion Week and an exclusive “jewel edition” that will be carried at Balmain.

“With L’Oréal Paris, Rousteing brings the raw creativity with which he has reinvented Balmain, from the Paris runways to his first ever beauty collection,” L’Oréal and Balmain said in a joint statement. “Accessible beauty and high fashion now have a symbolic meeting point: This new Color Riche limited collection with Balmain Paris.”

Finally they are getting it right. Not all of us have the deep pockets to buy a $40 lipstick. I’m sure sick of it!
