Kanye is happy that Kim Kardashian finally makes her debut on Vogue. However, we can clearly see the Anna Wintour shade of not giving Kim the cover alone. It’s a beautiful cover, but it screams, “I’m only doing this for you, Kanye, and I’m still not really here for Kim.” It would be nice if Kim made the cover by her own merits like Rihanna or FLOTUS Michelle Obama, but at least she’s finally made it, well kind of…
This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can’t even breath!
On the bright side, Kim said she wanted that cover, and Kanye West got his baby the cover. Anna Wintour defends the cover with a preemptive strike, as she knew a backlash would ensue from the fashion community. Check out her defense of the cover below. Wintour is clearly trying to please everyone and has put her reputation on the line for a dear friend.
Remember when we introduced you to 4-year old Mayhem, she and her mother, Angie, make these elaborate paper dresses drawing inspiration from fashion magazines and the red carpet. Well, it didn’t take long for the world to catch on, and little Mayhem has become a famous designer. Ellen DeGeneres contacted the mother along with several other media outlets to get the exclusive rights to showcase Mayhem’s designs inspired by the Oscars’ red carpet looks.
Check out the three looks we did for Mayhem’s dress exclusively on Ellen’s Blog. Why did we decide to share them with Ellen’s people? They were the only ones who didn’t pressure us about it – so it stayed FUN :) #fashionbymayhem
Check out Mayhem’s paper dress replicas; once again Lupita Nyong’o is a muse, plus more designs inspired by Ellen and Jennifer Lawrence when you continue…
Lupita Nyong’o fresh off a win and a heavy media circuit joins Rihanna in Paris front row at the Mui Mui Fashion Show. I love this picture of the two of them sitting together, the juxtaposition of their legs, their glasses, and their style front an centered at the runway. Rihanna is edgy with her legs crossed at the thighs, while Lupita sits lady like with her legs crossed at the ankles. Check out the eye-wear, too. Love it!
We forget this fame thing is all new to Lupita, she’s snaps a few selfies backstage with Bad Girl RiRi, check it out when you continue…
Naomi Campbell has been seen all over the place rocking a new do. Naomi is sporting an Afro wig, and it looks good on her, IMO. She has been making her rounds promoting the new season of The Face premiering March 5th on Oxygen.
Naomi Campbell and this new Afro unit have been seen on The View, The Graham Norton Show, and apparently Naomi has had some time to hang with NeNe Leakes, too.
Ms. Campbell is kind of giving us Lauryn Hill from back in the day with this wig. There isn’t much Naomi can’t wear or pull it off. Check out more photos of Naomi Campbell, NeNe Leakes and the wig…
I am sure you’re all around a water cooler somewhere discussing the big win last night. Lupita Nyong’o graciously added the title Academy Award Winner to her resume last night when she took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. As soon as her name was called I felt my eyes watering, and of course when she started speaking I couldn’t hold back the tears. I don’t know what was so magical about the moment exactly, but it felt like the first time ever that a black woman has won the honor of Best Supporting Actress, although it’s not. Maybe it’s the way she graces the red carpet, and seeing another standard of beauty before my eyes. Or maybe it’s the fact that dreams really do come true, or as she said in her acceptance speech, that they are “valid”.
Lupita Nyong’o wins an Oscar for her first role straight out of Yale; that’s rare in and of itself. So maybe it’s because she looks like Cinderella and we’re all witnesses to her first dance at the ball:
When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid. Thank you.
Check out the full speech when you continue reading, and let me know your thoughts on the win, and it felt surreal to you:
Lupita Nyong’o entered the awards season with a splash. Due to the critically acclaim success of her first movie role as Patsy in 12 Years A Slave, Lupita is gracing the red carpet as Hollywood’s it girl; bringing a new sense of beauty to the forefront. Lupita Nyong’o is happily carrying the torch for women of color as she graciously explained in her acceptance speech after winning the Best Breakthrough Performance Award during the 7th Annual Essence Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon.
Lupita talks about learning to love the skin she’s in over time, after praying to God when she was younger to make her pale. Thankfully, God already knew she was beautiful in her “night-shade skin”. Check out the full speech below:
