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.

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!

When you can’t find a venue to feature your collection you create one. That’s exactly what Karl Lagerfeld did. Lagerfeld brought Greece to Paris at the Grand Palais in Paris this afternoon. Replicating the Temple of Poseidon, models emerged from the ruins donning tunics, cream knits, embellished jewelry and gold plated leaf sunglesses that will have my bank account on empty.
To be honest, the Grecian looks is always so effortless and perfect for the fashion Aphrodite like myself. It’s simple yet so chic and elegant.
Karl, send me a pair of lace up heels!!!!
