Yesterday Kanye West debuted his second collection on the Parisian runways. His first collection named dW (click here for HGB ccoverage) received mixed reviews from people all over the fashion industry. Many people felt his collection lacked cohesion and the pieces weren’t appropriate for the season. Well let’s take a look at how Mr. West did the second time around.

This time around Kanye actually has a collection! The pieces are definitely wearable and let’s just look at those boots!

Kanye went for a feminine grunge look. The silhouettes are very firgure flattering and gives a great feminine touch, especially since the collection is dominated by all black and leather.

This collection shows that Kanye had his ear to the streets. He heard the criticism and made the necessary improvements to create something better the second time aound. That is what you call a great student. Many people receive constructive criticism but never make adjustments. Yes you do have the final say on anything that you produce, but if you are in an industry where you are servicing people you need to listen, and that is exactly what Kanye did.

It is that time of the year again, time for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Every year the star studded event brings out the best of the best in fashion and music. Here are a few pics of some of our favorite celebs who attended this years event.

You are now watching the throne…

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will ari November 29, 2011 on CBS

Named after his late mother, Donda West, Kanye delivered his much anticipated women’s wear clothing line on October 1, 2011 during Paris Fashion Week. This is a huge milestone for Kanye as an entertainer and as a designer. Many people have great personal style, but it is quite difficult to try and capture a style that others will buy in to, especially if you have as many critics as Kanye West.

For his first collection you will see a lot of everything, plunging necklines, high slits, leather, fur, sheer, bandage dresses and metallics. The collection was a bit all over the place, but remove a few pieces like the metallic pink space suit, and you will have very feminine silhouettes and dresses that accentuate a woman’s curve.

What do you think of Kanye’s debut collection “Dw?”


Last night’s MTV Vide Music Awards were EPIC! Well not really, but because of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s pregnancy announcement everyone went crazy. The news of the Knowles-Carter Baby Bump literally stole the entire show. Most of the performances were underwhelming and quite a few people won awards that clearly didn’t deserve to win. I did enjoy Jay-Z and Kanye West’s performance. I am extra excited for the concert in November. I also loved Adele and Bruno Mars. Chris Brown did a wonderful job dancing, and Beyonce was just glowing and Kevin Hart was hilarious!

Now let’s get to the fashion! Check out what some of your favorite celebs rocked to this year’s VMAs

Beyonce was glowing on the black carpet in a red-orange Lanvin gown. She performed in Dolce & Gabbana. I think almost every female I know, and some males, all said the same thing “I’m going to be an auntie.” Beyonce is our sister in our minds. Congrats to her and Jay. I wish them a healthy and happy pregnancy.

Amber Rose showed us we still have a few weeks left of summer. So many people were dressed ready for fall. I love Amber and Wiz as a couple by the way.

This was an awkward moment, especially for Katy Perry. Everyone loved Kanye’s Denim Ombre shirt. According to a few people on twitter he’s also rocking the Air Yeezy 2s. I’d have to check to see if this is accurate. Katy Perry went for the Gaga factor with many of her fits. In my opinion it was too forced.

Britney looked great and definitely deserved the Michael Jackson Vanguard award.

I loved Kevin Hart’s look the best out of all three. I love the jacket and the sneakers. Ne-yo is a close second.

The ladiesof Jersey Shore. When they were presenting the award, I did  not understand any of the lingo, I had to get a translation from my sister lol.

Newlywed Kim Kardashian-Humphries in a curve hugging dress. I’ve seen Kim look better, but she did just get back from her honeymoon so she gets a pass.

Kelly Rowland in a fun, flirty, and feathery dress with peep toe spiked Christian Louboutin heels

Zoe Saldana in Balenciage heels and a little black number with one of fall’s hottest trends, plunging necklines

Adele gave an excellent performance as well. Her vocals are insane!

Lil Mama tried, she really did. I love the shoes and the dress, just not together or with the wig.

Last but not least, rapper (I used the term loosely) Kreayshawn and Nicki Minaj. Nicki is definitely reaching now with these looks. She is doing a bit much and it is just forced. This get up is not believable. I actually started liking her, but now it seems like it is all a gimmick. She’s wearing toys, like really?

Check out Bey’s performance

Anyway, what was your favorite part of the VMAs? Who rocked the best look? Let us know in the comments!

Rumor has it, Kanye West may be designing shoes for Giuseppe Zanotti. Kanye West has been making monthly visits to the Zanotti shoe factory spending 10-12 hours per visit.  “Kanye loves learning about shoes, both the design and construction, and we’ve tried to design something together. In a couple of months, he could have his own special collection out,” Zanotti said.

Can you imagine what this collection would be like?  Source
