Lookbook From Rihanna x Puma's Runway Show

Posted On: February 13, 2016

New York City is the mecca when it comes to fashion, individuality and genre of styles. So it's no surprised that New York Fashion Week has become a global phenomenon drawing in crowds and tourist from all over the world.

Rihanna, who is no stranger when it comes to pursuing dreams with boldness, is branching out from utilizing the platform of the stage to elevate herself; and reach new heights. As the creative director for Puma, Riri uncovered the first collection for her line Fenty x Puma.

The Fenty x Puma fashion show opened with Lex Boling (pictured below in the middle) hitting the runway, followed by other top models in the game, such as: Taylor Hill, Imaan Hammam, Stella Maxwell and more.

Gigi Hadid was one of the headline models, along with her sister, Bella who showcased the bad gal's new collection.

Fenty's main theme color was black, accentuated in grey and white details. The line featured velour styled furs, sheer tops and dresses, bodysuits with cut-out paneling, crop tops, tracksuits and more. The models' hair were painted in white and accessorize with black lipstick.

The collection presented menswear as well, styled in puffer jackets, oversized fits in pants, sweatshirts; and more.

Rihanna's mother was there with other family members to support the Bajan beauty's achievements and success.

Naomi Campbell (pictured below), Chris Rock, Jeremy Scott, Wale and other stars were in attendance at the show to see Riri shine.

Fenty x Puma also featured shoes such as over the knee boots, custom couture styled shoes (pictured below) that Rihanna particpated in the blueprint of designing.

Also, fur backpacks.

Rihanna continues to role model how dreams have no limits and if you believe, you can soar beyond possibilities.

And live the reality of those dreams.

Lookbook From Yeezy 3's Fashion Show At Madison Square Garden

Posted On: February 12, 2016

As previously reported, Kanye West became a game changer in fashion and music by collaborating the two to debut his new Yeezy 3 collection and upcoming "The Life of Pablo" album at Madison Square Garden.

The show was headline by Naomi Campbell.

And exhibited the full line of the new Yeezy 3 collection.

The models were given a list of do's and don't's for the show. The theme was to come off looking like a picture (an art piece) which required the models to be stiff and lack in facial expressions with their presentations of Yeezy 3.

Also, different poses.

The Yeezy 3 models varied in race and ethnicity by unifying a nation of people coming together and even, with the power of music from TLOP.

Although, this is not the first time a fashion designer utilized the platform of Madison Square Garden to host and present a fashion show, however it was the first time a fashion designer who is also a musician, connected two different elements of shows (fashion and music) to hold a historical event.

Kanye West made history last night (Feb. 11) as a game changer and innovator.

Being the visionary that he is, this was an inventive way for Ye to promote and market his brand in music and fashion.

Update: Kanye West is turning walls sideways and bridging the gap for African-American fashion designers. Because no other labels/brand such as F.U.B.U, Rocawear, Enyce and etc., have demonstrated a fashion show on this kind of magnitude and significance, of not only breaking barriers in fashion due to racism and ignorance; but straight C4 and blowing up as a brand!

The 2016 White House State Dinner was in honor of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore and his wife Ho Ching, both President Obama and the First Lady greeted the couple on the red carpet.

The First Lady shined with a pair of diamond earrings, kept it cool in a tucked chignon and a smooth, sleek back bun.

Brandon Maxwell made his debut in September of last year, at New York Fashion Week and gradually grew throughout 2016 as an evening-wear designer. He was the recipient for the Swarovski Award for Womenswear at the 2016 CFDA Awards. Maxwell has worked and styled Lady Gaga, which he continues to do. His clients include Naomi Campbell, Iman, Kerry Washington and many others.

In an email statement to Women's Wear Daily (WWD), Brandon Maxwell spoke about the experience of designing a gown for the First Lady.

"It has been an incredible honor for me and my team to create this dress for the First Lady."

Maxwell expressed, the personality of Michelle Obama, the inspiration that she is for women from all corners of the earth and how she became his muse to fuse his creativity.

"Strong and elegant, she is the embodiment of the woman that inspires me to create, and a role model for women all over the world."
