As if today couldn’t get any greater with Jay Z dropping his Tidal 4:44 album, Jay and Bey have had the names of their twins leaked again and not it’s not Shawn and Bea (which would’ve been super basic).
With a daughter, Blue Ivy, who’s name is already iconic. The Carters needed something to withstand the test of time. Why would Beyoncé give the girl a 90 year old woman’s name who drinks prune juice…not iconic.
Drumroll please: Sir Carter and Rumi
If these are in fact my niece and nephew’s names, these are definitely dope and could never BEY forgotten.

The fashion industry has lost a fashion icon, Carla Fendi, one of the 5 fendi sisters, passed away late Monday night after a long battle with an unknown illness.
Fendi started as a leather good shop in 1925 and Carla recalls living above her parents shop and running around playing with the handbags and shreds of leather.
She told WWD, “Accessories were our first toys.”
Once the sisters took over in the 1960’s, Fendi expanded to ready to wear, home, children’s, and shoes. Karl Lagerfeld was brought in as Creative Director and the company saw a significant boost in revenue after he introduced furs into the line.
Carla Fendi was also responsible for pushing the brand to where it is today. The Fendi logo is one of the top recognized luxury brands worldwide.
In her later years, Carla became a advocate for art and culture in Rome. Her foundation restored the city’s Trevi Fountain, where Fendi hosted one of its runway shows.
Carla, your impact on the fashion world will never be forgotten. Thank you for your creativity and passion.
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.
As we all know the Met Gala took place May 1st, the world anxiously awaited for celebs to either fall flat or rise to the occasion. This years theme Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcon. Simple right.While our faves captivated the white carpet, the memo was missed again this year by many. Now, the average Joe might not understand the concept of the Met Gala but its a costume gala that has taken place since 1971. Key word: COSTUME.But I digress.
Back to the Subject at hand. Best dressed and WORST. While there were many who looked stunning, there were many that were lackluster.

Images of the Jeff Koons x Louis Vuitton were released today and two nights ago celebs partied it up at The Louvre in Paris to celebrate the collection. According to Vogue, everyone toasted the night away and danced to Rae Sremmurd, Lil’ Yachty (eye roll) and whats a party without Drake (double eye roll*). I can only imagine Michelle Williams (Dawson’s Creek not Destiny’s Child) yelling “I got fake people showing fake love to me..”
This is the first series to drop in their collaboration and this go round is famous paintings and the painters name on the exterior. Pieces start at $585 and are as much as $4000! It hit stores April 28th and if you want a statement piece for the summer, please wake up in time to get in line, its only available in stores.
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!

As if being a Rockstar and Fashion Designer isn’t enough, Rihanna is now adding jewelry designer to her repertoire! Today, Chopard released this image of Rihanna shining bright like a diamond (how appropriate). While many of the pieces are price upon request (which means its too damn expensive for the average Rihanna fan) however there is a ring that’s $1460. Okay Rihanna, let us know when your collaborate with Claire’s or Forever 21!
Now if the collection isnt too rich for your blood, it comes in two parts. There is a minimalist collection that consists of delicate geometrical shapes in rose gold earrings, rings and bracelets. While the “High End” line has chandelier earrings, ear clips and a watch (which is 30 Karats). The line is not for the faint of heart.
Anyone peep how the R 🖤C, also spells ROC! (She’s signed to Roc Nation)
Also this pic reminds me of Eva Pigford idk why but it does!

Looks like Russell Westbrook has a little competition in the Basketball Player/Fashion Designer world. Now Dwayne Wade isn’t a novice to fashion as he has an accessories line, Way of Wade with Li Ning but now he’s partnering up with Dean and Dan Caten of Dsquared to launch Dsquared2 x Wade which will be exclusive to Saks 5th Ave.
Wade wanted to be able to take his collection from day to night with this capsule. The fashionably athletic inspired collab will consist of a 9 piece collection with nylon bomber jackets, embellished collar shirts, tuxedo jackets and what’s a collaboration with a 3 time NBA champ without fitted joggers?
Wade, who has sat front row next to Anna Wintour multiple times, actaully credits Bon Jovi for getting his start in fashion. He noted that he mention to Bon Jovi that he wanted to a fashion line and was asked, “What have you done?” Wade responded “Nothing,” Jovi told Wade to build his portfolio. Which is what he did and now Wade has arrived.
