Jason Wu For Target

If you ever wanted to get your hands on the threads of Jason Wu, your time has come. Wu, who is s most famously known for dressing Mrs. Obama, is making an affordable line for Target starting Feb 6th-Mar 6th.

“My collection for Target embodies my signature aesthetic of feminine sophistication, with a mischievous nod to the 1960s,” said Jason Wu. “I’ve had an incredible experience partnering with Target and I am looking forward to bringing these affordable designs to women across the country.”

With the madness that was Missoni, I can only imagine that the store will be sold out and the website will be crashed. The prices range from $19.99 to $59.99 for apparel and $19.99 to $49.99 for handbags and scarves.

Love and Hip Hop Star: Emily B’s Fab Shoe Collection

In the latest issue of  PYNK Magazine, ‘Love and Hip Hop’ Star, Emily B shows off her massive Christian Louboutin collection.

Below are some highlights of the interview:

What’s the most you’ve spent on one pair of shoes?

$5000. And they were special edition – crystallized, but I would never do it again. It would have to be a very special occasion. Other than that, I don’t want to spend over $3000. Never again.

Do you find that your passion for shoes influences you as a stylist?

It’s just a part of being a stylist. I love to shop, I love fashion, and I love girly things. Shoes are definitely an inspiration for me. I start off with the shoes and work my way up and around it.

Tell us about some of your entrepreneurial pursuits.

I’m actually starting my own clothing line, called Emily B. It’s going to be feminine, chic, trendy, and of course, affordable. I want to start a line that all women and young girls of all ages can wear and afford.

What’s the perfect PYNK girl shoe?

Every girl should own a good black pump, even if it’s just an open-toed pump. It’s versatile — she can wear it with anything, she can wear it with jeans, she can dress it up and wear it out with a cocktail dress…

I’m in love!

Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer Collection Stolen

Someone call the fashion police!

It was announced Thursday afternoon that the Marc Jacobs spring/summer 2012 46 piece collection had been stolen on the way from Paris to London, where it was to be paraded in front of the press. First it was the Oh Lola! ad ban and now this.

Scotland Yard confirmed Thursday that it was investigating the theft of “a quantity of clothing, bags and shoes” valued at almost $65,000. The collection was stolen, it said, at 8 a.m. on a sunlit Wednesday morning on Mount Street, in the heart of the upscale Mayfair neighborhood in London, home to a large Marc Jacobs store.

A person familiar with the situation, who did not want to be named discussing a continuing investigation, said late Wednesday that the collection that was stolen consisted of “duplicate samples, in Europe for press days.” “The collection that was shown in New York is safe and the red carpets won’t be missing Marc Jacobs this season.” The person declined to discuss the nature of the robbery, but said no one had been hurt. There was speculation the collection had been lifted from a courier van delivering it to the store.

This is not the first time a large quantity of designer clothing has gone missing. Seventy-five dresses from Victoria Beckham’s spring/summer 2010 collection were taken from a delivery van on its way to Neiman Marcus in New York in 2009. In 2007, the London designer Christopher Kane’s studio was broken into and 23 pieces from that year’s spring/summer collection were stolen.

I’m surprised these designers don’t have a security detail with their prized possessions. While $65,000 is not necessarily a lot of money,  it’s enough money to have someone have an eye on your items 24/7.

 

Gwen Stefani Collaborates With Target

Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Mini kids clothing line is the most highly anticipated Target collaboration since Missoni’s last month. The collection, which goes on sale tomorrow, are for kids aged one to 13 and will be very easy on the pocket, ranging from just $3.99 to $29.99

For her launch party, guest were greeted at the Jim Henson studios with towers of balloons and walked a bullseye carpet instead of a red one and signs reading Harajuku Station in reference to the area in Tokyo famous for its quirky fashions. Child models took their turn on the catwalk to show off Stefani’s creations to the sound of a DJ and were joined by the singer’s own sons Zuma and Kingston.

The collection is high on fun, with ballerina-style tutus, polka dots and fuzzy hoodies complete with animal ears and slogans such as ‘Hazard’, ‘Love Makes Me Cute’ and ‘I Am A Monster’. Those worried that it will sell out as quickly as the Missoni line, will be reassured to know that the star is also working on a follow-up collection, due to hit stores in January.

I ♥ me some Gwen Stefani!

Rapper DPhil Creates ‘XY’ Movement

Daryll Duane Philips, a straight 19-year-old rapper from Dallas who goes byDPhil Spanglishman, has created the XY Movement, which encourages men to get in touch with their feminine sides by donning lipstick and other items, like floral print tights, typically worn by women.

Below is the interview he gave to The News 33:

“A lot of people feel like a lot of colors or tight clothes is homosexual. I feel like it’s more of an expression of me,” said XY Movement creator Daryll Duane Philips II.

“The only obstacles are in your mind, that’s the way I feel. I had to break down those barriers in my mind to where I was just confident enough to do it,” said Philips.

He’s started what he calls the XY Movement. It’s an attempt to blur gender lines a little further. “The first time I stepped out of the house, I was nervous, I’m not going to lie,” he said. He uses social media to spread his message and he says it’s catching on.

“Actually on Twitter, this guy, I looked at this picture and he had on lipstick and he was like yeah man, I did it to support what you`re doing. I was like man that`s crazy,” said Philips.

He has girlfriend whose learned to embrace it too. “It’s fine. I wear lipstick. He wears lipstick. We share lipstick,” said Philips’ girlfriend Joy Nguyn. Despite the comments her friends and family share. “I get mostly negative comments, oh he’s gay, that`s not cute. Guy`s shouldn’t wear lipstick or tights, but I really don`t care,” said Nguyn.

Philips says he’s just in touch with his feminine side. “I believe I’m 40 percent female, basically because of my emotions. I’m a very emotional person. Very emotional,” he said. And thinks other men should be too. “Everyone has a soft spot. I just embrace both sides,” said Philips.

Stiletto Nails

I remember watching the 2011 MTV Video Awards and seeing Adele’s nails like OMGOSH, those things are pointy and dangerous. I noticed that women were wearing their nails in this fashion but what I didn’t know was that this nail style had a name.

They’re called Stiletto Nails…I learned this today as I watched Amber Rose on Wendy Williams’ show. Amber isn’t the only celeb rocking this trend, I first saw this on Rihanna. Like anything else other people started to follow.

Why would anyone want nails that long and pointy? The potential of a medical emergency from poking  your eye out to accidentally stabbing someone is beyond me. To each its own…check out some of the pics below

Would you “wear” this trend?

    

 

J.Lo Is GLAMOUR’s Woman Of The Year

J. Lo is on the cover of GLAMOUR magazine looking oh so HAWT in a red bustier by Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony, pants and a Swarovski crystal anchor necklace by Salvatore Ferragamo, a Michael Kors gold necklace, Verdura gold bracelet, two Chanel Fine Jewelry gold, black onyx, and diamond bracelets, a Lorraine Schwartz white gold diamond bracelet, a Verdura gold, platinum, and diamond wide link bracelet and a Pomellato rose gold and diamond bracelet. WELL DAMN!!! (in my Gucci voice)

 

In the issue, veteran actress and Jenny’s former co-star Jane Fonda interviews the newly single singer-actress about life, love and learning from her biggest year yet.

Here’s a sneak peek from the interview:

On the possibility of a new relationship out of the public eye
“I think to give something a chance, to really get to know somebody, you want to do it out of the public eye. You know the media—they want to rush everything.”

On her style
“The things I liked when I was, like, 16 and in the Bronx—jeans, cut-up T-shirts—I still like. But I’ve been exposed to so much now from traveling the world and seeing couture clothes. I used all of that when I created my new line for Kohl’s. My style has come from everything, from where I started to where I am today.”

On what she’s learned about love and relationships
“I think I’ve finally learned the biggest lesson of all. You’ve got to love yourself first. You’ve got to be OK on your own before you can be OK with somebody else. You’ve got to value yourself and know that you’re worth everything. And until you value yourself enough and love yourself enough to know that, you can’t really have a healthy relationship.”

Glamour’s December issue is available on newsstands nationwide and digitally on November 8.  The woman looks great!!!!!
