Rihanna’s collection for Armani


Rihanna simply just can’t stop, won’t stop! The good girl gone bad was previously on a campaign for Armani Jeans. Since she is no longer the face for the brand, Ri-Ri is collaborating with them far as fashion design! The images shown are apart of the collection that will be launching very soon. There is no doubt Rihanna is one of the biggest fashion figures in pop culture, but I am curious what the viewers feel about the collection.

 Honestly, I think is an honest and personal collection. From the looks she has been pushing for some time now (i.e.The leather jacket, distressed jeans, etc) provides the edge Rihanna possess! Talk about her as a singer you want, but you can never take away how she can easily make an ensemble look extraordinary (its here to stay people!). Sexy and simplicity is the key in this collection. Ladies, the only thing you need is a red wig and some swag. You will be good to go from there! Will you look like Rihanna? NO, but you certainly have some classic staples for the closet! lol

Hedi Slimane for YSL and Stefano Pilati for Armani


As of right now, there is a rumor (a source) Hedi Slimane will be working for the Parisian fashion house, Yves Saint Laurent. Being a fan of both, this is clearly beyond a win-win situation!

Slimane is widely know for his innovation regards to fashion (working  7 years with Dior and 3 years prior with YSL) and a dope ass photographer. This man is the jack of all trades. What he may bring to the table to this fashion house will display a case of unfathomable gratitude for all fashionistas; therefore, I will be impatiently waiting on the campaign ads once they launch!

So what is going to happen to Stefano Pilati? There is some speculation he will be going to be at Giorgio Armani. Now mind you this is a RUMOR so I am not totally sure. However this will be great if this comes into fruition. Come to think of it, I can be more than assure Lanvin will seek to extend Alber Elbaz‘s contract.

Also a fellow former employee for Yves Saint Laurent, His asset to Lanvin is equivalent to Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton or Tom Ford was at Gucci. Once again this is only a rumor at the moment!
