Though you were finally served those restraining order papers on your birthday by Karrueche Tran, that doesn’t negate that fact that you are still R&B’s most stylish crooner…so cheers to you and your 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.

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!

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.

9 years ago the savagely beautiful Naomi Campbell finished her community service at a sanitation station in NYC draped in Couture Dolce and Gabanna. How did Naomi Campbell end up there?
Well let’s just say she and Foxy Brown have something in common. Campbell suspected her maid of stealing her favorite pair of jeans and hurled a phone at the poor lady!
Though there are few photos of Campbell actually working at the sanitation station but there are tons of photos of her killer wardrobe!
