Kanye West made an appearance at the CFDA Awards earlier this week. He was there to present the International Designer award to Celine’s Pheobe Philo. Pheobe well deserves this award. She has done an amazing job at the fashion house. Remember Kanye at Coachella.
Leave it to Kanye to push the boundaries and attend an awards ceremony in some jeans. He chose his favorite pair of jeans, his Balmain Homme distressed jeans. I remember the days when celebrities would not wear one item of clothing more than once. I’m glad that, that has changed. That is one thing that irks me. If you spend so much on an item. Why not put it to some use? There is no such thing as a dull day when it comes to choosing what to wear and working with what you have.
Russell Brand was spotted leaving an AA meeting with some friends in Beverly Hills, California. Russell wore his black Balmain jeans again. Looks like Russell has bulked up quite a bit. I wonder if it was a request from wife Katy Perry. Russell is such a character, I feel like he turns everyday into a fun day.
Russell recently had some trouble in Japan. The country recently deported him for past issues on his record. I find this to suck. Japan is truly one of the best places to be (never been). The place just looks so magical. You can click here to purchase these jeans at Barneys for $1,720.
YES!!! Kate Moss is back in her khaki suede Balmain jeans. She was caught leaving her home in London, England. I just love everything about these. The motorcycle style, the zipper (length and placement), the color and the material. They are just one of the best that I have seen. Everything just works so well together. Also, Kate always styles them amazing when she is spotted out in them.
I noticed that Kate seems to be going through a heels phase right now. She seems to be loving the minimal to no platform styles over her flat ankle boots lately. She has worn a couple of different pairs with cap-toes and now these reptile skin ones. I wonder if she just goes through her closet and realizes that she hasn’t worn a few in a while.
Here is also some great news! Balmain will be launching a new diffusion line for both men and women! Everything will be at a more affordable price point and will be named after the founder, Pierre Balmain. I cannot wait to see what is in it. I hope their are zipper jeans, actually my only need for this line. Great news is that the first collection will be out as soon as September! How many of you are excited?
Kanye West hit the stage with best friend Jay-Z at the Museum of Modern Art’s annual 2011 Party in the Garden once again in his favorite pair of Balmain Homme jeans in New York. I never would have thought I would ever be a fan of Kanye in any aspect whatsoever, let alone in his style. But his style has become a lot less extravagant and more relaxed. It sort of reminds me of my own actually, just sticking to the basics and adding other things to make them different.
Though Kanye might have gained a fan through me, he may have lost one through ex-girlfriend Amber Rose. She recently replied to the comments that many are saying she has downgraded from Kanye to her current boyfriend Wiz Kalifa in the issue of King Magazine that she graces. She says, “There’s no comparison in personalities. You know when people say how do you go from Kanye to Wiz Khalifa, that’s a downgrade. But the only question I can ask them is: have you ever dated Kanye? Because I have, and believe me, I did not downgrade at all. Not in any aspect, at all.” What are your thoughts on Ms. Rose’s statement?
