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!

Editor in Chief, Alexandra Shulman, of British Vogue announced her retirement, we all were wondering WHO’S UP NEXT? Okay maybe the rest of the world didn’t use those exact words but still. Well, Vogue announced the amazing Edward Enninful will be her successor. Talk about Black Excellence. 
Here’s a quick history lesson on Enninful. Edward got his start at I-D magazine as Fashion Director at 19! See mom, you shoulda let me run off after high school to NYC to model, who knows where I would be lol. He went on to work for I-D for almost 20 years, while also contributing to Italian and American Vogue. 

In 2004 he received the Isabella Blow Award for fashion creator at the British Fashion Awards. Enninful was also appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire for his services to diversity in the fashion industry by none other than Queen Elizabeth. 

Not to mention for the past 6 years, Edward has been the creative and fashion director at W Magazine. Not bad. 

With all these accolades under his belt, Enninful was almost predestined for this role of Editor in Chief at Vogue. I van not wait to see what he does with Vogue. He will begin his role August 1st.

Also in other designer jewelry news, Kanye West dropped his 12 piece collection on Yeezy Suppy. Again, not for the faint of heart. Prices start at $1,500-$10,780. Inspired by Florentine art from the 14th century, Kanye said he “wanted to create something that represented timeless love.” 

Kim K. has already been spotted rocking necklaces from the line. Some of the pieces, like the Yeezy 18K Yellow Gold Bracelet, reminds me of Marco Bicego (Beach-e-go)! Nice!
