Rihanna walked the carpet at the premiere of Michael Jackson The Immortals World Tour in Los Angeles, California. She wore her Helmut Lang Leather leggings with a Versace Jacket. I like the detail of these leggings. They are a pull-on pair, but have a fly and pocket stitching so they look like regular pants.
Rihanna looks just like she stepped out of the The Way You Make Me Feel video. Well that era. I can just see her walking around like she owns the place with a guy chasing after her. She just looks straight out of the late 80’s, in a good way. Going for a full on 80’s look is hard to pull off. I don’t think anyone else can wear this look other than Rihanna and look normal.

I now see what Olivier Rousteing is talking about when he said he was taking Balmain back to its couture days. The clothing now looks in harmony with the price range. I do miss all the rips, tears and endless amounts of denim, but couture is the soul of the brand so that is where it should be.
The 2012 Pre-Fall collection had tons of prints, color and of course the classic glitz. There was also no shortage of leather. I think the collection is really great. There are quite a few pieces that I find amazing. The leather pants above are just everything. Trouser pockets, check. Leather, check. Inseam-zipper and motorcycle stitching, double check. My other favorites would have to be the printed pajama pants, all the jackets, and the black long-sleeve dress. I love the graphic at the waist. I would love to see that dress on Zoe Saldana or Kate Bosworth. You can see the full collection below.
It’s basketball season again. So you know what that means…David Beckham at his favorite past time in denim. For this day he chose a classic pair of Dior Homme jeans. I think this is the first time we have seen David wear a pair of gray ones. The wash of them is pretty amazing. I really get excited when I see an amazing gray wash. I think it is one that is difficult to perfect and when it is done right, it is always perfect.
David just has such amazing style. He just knows the right fit for himself. These jeans just fit him so well. I also like the whole color combo. The green beanie is just great. I wonder if this means that we will be seeing him in some of the looks from the Dior Homme fall collection? There were tons of olive green this season.
Vanessa Paradis walked the carpet at the premiere of her new movie Cafe De Flore in Paris, France. She wore a pair of the J Brand Leather Leggings in Oxblood. I am happy to see the red getting some sightings. I think the color is a great one. There is quite a bit of depth in it with the faded spots here and there. I do wish they were a bit tighter on her though. They have a weird baggy skinny fit.
I hope the rumors of Vanessa and Johnny Depp breaking up are not true. Or if they are it is not permanent. I always thought they were a great couple. After hearing about Seal and Heidi Klum, this would be another shocker in Hollywood. You can click here to purchase these pants at Shopbop for $896.
