Diggy Tweets About His New Sneaker Line

Chivalrous Culture 2

Diggy previews the red/black pair

It seems that Diggy Simmons is proving that he’s not just a rapper but a serious fashion mogul. Earlier today he gave fans an exclusive glimpse of 2 sneaker designs from his forthcoming Chivalrous Culture brand via Twitter. The trainers look hot, I quite like the ‘Forest colour’ pair. Hopefully, they’ll be available over this side of the pond (but I doubt it somehow).

Rihanna Dresses Up In PVC To Perform on American Idol

8 Apr

Last Night Rihanna made an appearance on American Idol to plug her forthcoming “Last Girl on Earth” tour which will also be supported by Ke$sha. Rihanna donned a black futuristic-style PVC catsuit to perform her track “Rockstar 101”. I’m sure the figure-hugging outfit caused a few heart attacks throughout the living rooms of America.

Naomi Campbell

Check out Naomi Campbell‘s April spread forVogue Russia. Naomi is depicted as the “queen of the boudoir” by photographer Tom Munro and is dressed in pieces from Dior, Alexander McQueen and Azzedine Alaïa. I really like the creativness of the shots and her hair and elongated figure remind me of a Geisha.

American Apparel “Rummage” Sale Causes Riot in Brick Lane

3 Apr

The clever people over at American Apparel thought it would be a great idea to organise a rummage sale in Brick Lane via Facebook! Unsurprisingly, the event drew a lot of attention ,with over 28,000 people registering as ‘attending’. However, 2000 hopeful shoppers turned up yesterday for the first day of the sale when trouble broke out. And by the looks of it, the police were more than keen to try and ‘control’ the situation with their usual heavy-handedness.

According to The Met, three people were arrested for public disorder and ten officers were sent to hospital for minor injuries. In a statement on the Facebook group, American Apparel said:

Today’s response at our first Rummage Sale in London was overwhelming and humbling. Dangerous behavior in the queue prompted the police to close the event down until they could ensure security for everyone involved. In our many rummage sales, we’ve never witnessed anything like it and are disappointed and sorry that it happened.

Is it me or are they missing the point? Overwhelming and humbling surely aren’t the right words to use. It’s obvious that they knew what the response was going to be, especially because they’ve held similar events in Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, San Diego, Miami, Berlin and Austin, where thousands of people also turned out to grab a bargain.

Anyways every cloud has a silver lining I guess and as a result of the “dangerous behaviour” yesterday they have posted various discounts codes on Facebook for their website and retail stores (up to 40%).  Enjoy!

Call the Fashion Police! Rhianna & Ciara at the Grammys Pre-Party

1 Feb

ciara-and-rihanna

Tonight witnesses the 52nd Grammy Awards, and to kick things off music Mogul, Clive Davies held his pre-Grammys Gala which was attended by the who’s-who of the entertainment industry.

To cut a long story story short, anyone who regularly drops by this blog will know that we place red carpet fashion just as highly as any awards given out on the night. So someone please tell me why Rhianna and Ciara thought it was a good idea to turn up as a bunch of sugarplum fairies!  I wonder if they were competing for the ‘Most Ridiculous Outfit’ Award or thought it was fancy dress because these two are always on point when it comes to fashion…but not this time!

Rhianna NRJ Awards 2

Rhianna must have barely recovered from her trip to London for the Hope For Haiti Now Telethon before she graced the red carpet at the NRJ Music Awards, held at Palais des Festivals, Cannes. As always Rhianna looked stunning in a white lace and silver foil gown.  The Bajan songstress performed Russian Roulette and walked away with the ‘International Female Artist Of The Year’ award. [More pictures of Rhianna’s outfit below].

Amber Rose Gets ‘Undressed’ for Paris Fashion Week

24 Jan
Kamber Paris Mens Fashion Week

Kamber hit the Junya Watanabe Show in paris

As per usual Kanye West and his ‘model’ girlfriend, Amber Rose continue to  draw attention wherever they go. The couple hit up Menswear Fashion Week in Paris last and have been creating a storm ever since the arrived. Never to be outdone (by themselves) Kamber started fashion week as a walking endorsement for fur, but the highlight of their visit so far has been the shredded dress (if you can call it one) that Amber donned for the Junya Watanabe Men’s Autumn/Winter 2010 show. Kanye obviously didn’t want to be upstaged so accessorized his black get up with some black studded Christian Loubouitin loafers.

If I’m honest, I do like the quirky orange number and Louis Vuitton purse Amber is wearing is quite quirky, although I will not be purchasing it in the near future but Kamber will probably be hearing from a number of animal rights groups shortly!

Golden Globes Red Carpet Exposed

19 Jan

I have to admit that  I was actually meant to post this up yesterday but didn’t get round to it, but Fashion is fashion and we always have time to have a snoop!

Before, I even get started with who came up trumps on Red carpet and who didn’t,  I have to say that the ‘Most Memorable’ award of the night (if there were such a thing) has to go to Mrs. Cannon herself,  Mariah Carey – I think she may have stolen some globes and hid them under her dress! Mariah wore a Herve Leger by Max Azria dress with a Judith Leiber clutch.

Best Dressed

Penlope Cruz blows the competition away

Penelope Cruz never gets it wrong as far as I’m concerned. She was definitely the best dressed of the night and gave a new meaning to LBD. The Latina’s Giorgio Armani Privé black lace gown was not lacking in detail, its dramatic beaded neckline and horizontal striping complemented her bodyshape as well as her 69 Carat Chopard diamonds.

Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson stunned the papparazzi in her strapless number from Marchesa silk but I’m not too sure if the Casadei’s Signature 3504 triple platform pump goes with the outfit but maybe it would look like a wedding dress otherwise.  I love the detail in the bodice, and something about it I can just image her on top of a wedding.

Drew Barrymoore caused a stir in Ateiler Versace

I personally like Drew’s nude coloured Atelier Versace gown, but many have criticised it due to the ‘distracting’ diamond embellishment. Drew also wore Jimmy Choo “Zena” platform sandals, a Roger Vivier “Boite de Nuit” clutch in Rose Gold, finished with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Robin Thicke & Paula Patton

Robin Thicke and his pregnant actress wife, Paula Patton were also at the Globes to support her fellow Precious castmates. Paula wore a gown by Kaufman Franco, jewellery by Neil Lane and a Judith Leiber clutch.

Worst Dressed

Tina Fey is a disaster

Comedian Tina Fey, took the crown for worst dressed in this Zac Posen ensemble which she teamed up with Christian Louboutin heels and Fred Leighton jewellery. It’s simply too busy and Tina may have been able to salvage it with better shoes beacuse this teacup is not flattering!

Chloe Sevigny comes dressed as salad

I don’t know what Chloe Sevigny was thinking when her stylist pulled this out, but it clearly wasn’t “put it back in the closet”. Chloe’s silver lilac Valentino gown looked like an explosion of salad.

Zoe Saldana gets it wrong

Avatar actress, Zoe Saldana had to be one of the worst dressed in her rose coloured Louis Vuitton gown. It’s a shame because she’s could have pulled off something amazing with that figure. Also spotted on the Red carpet in a lilac number was our very own Leona Lewis. I guess she’s living the high life in the USA then!

Now that the Golden Globes are over, bring on the Oscars (and the Brits) because I bet there are definitely going to be some fashion tragedies!!

Rhianna’s New Squeeze?!

4 Jan
Matt Kemp: He's definitely not 'dodging' Ri-Ri!

Matt Kemp: He's definitely not 'dodging' Ri-Ri!

Recently rumours have been flying around that Ri-Ri has evenutally moved on from ‘woman-beater’ Chris Brown and found herself a new boo, Matt kemp, 25 year old LA Dodgers Baseball player. Last month they were spotted doing some Xmas shopping in Sax – personally I think this one’s a no-brainer! Which guy do you know goes shopping with a girl unless a) he’s gay or b) it’s his girlfriend/wife?!  And today they were spotted at LAX Airport boarding a flight – hmmmmmmm.

I’ve got to say that as always Ri-Ri’s outfit is ON POINT! I love the bubblegum colours!
