It was just a matter of time before the powerhouse made her way into the fashion arena. As the current body for Emporio Armani Underwear, Rihanna is collaborating with the fashion house to launch her first fashion line. The sketches and initial images nabbed by British Vogue, shows a more fan focused collection. Will these pieces be sold on her next tour? They definitely take on that 90’s vibe the pop star is on. Have a look at the collection below and let me know if you will be rocking Rihanna for Armani.
In the fashion organization’s 8th year, The CFDA Vogue Fashion Awards was presented Monday night at the Skylight Soho in New York City. The lucky recipient of the generous $300,000 fund and business mentor was none other than Joseph Altuzarra. The designer who runs in circles with the likes of Alexander Wang is known for his cool downtown aesthetic. Altuzarra found himself up against the designers of Cushnie et Ochs, Carlie Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, jewelry designer Pamela Love, and Shane Gabier and Chris Peters of Creatures of the Wind. Aside from the huge announcement the highlight of the evening was the red carpet or in this case, green shrubbery arrivals. Designers, actresses, models and socialites posed in their finest alongside an earthy green background.
Lala Anthony arrived in a bright aqua blue Zac Posen dress that seemed to hug her every curve. I love how she accessorized with purple strappy heels and a fun clutch.
Amanda Seyfried showed up in a feathery white frock by Prabal Gurung.
Olivia Wilde supported the ladies of Cushnie et Ochs wearing a fun black dress with interesting peek-a-boo detailing.
Always one to go against the grain, Rachel Roy was dramatic as ever wearing a snow white fur vest and a long black skirt.
I loved Joan Smalls’ entire look including the makeup. She really went for it in Altuzarra.
I love Zoe Kravitz in this leather Alexander Wang dress. I guess the pointy toe is making a comeback.
Coco Rocha got her Carmen Sandiego on in this grey floral dress and floppy hat.
Liya Kibede shut it down in this head to toe shocking yellow look by Cushnie et Ochs.
Remember a while back I was complaining about the lack of love Tyra Banks receives compared to her supermodel counterparts? Well, this is what I like to see. Yes, more covers for Tyra! The powerhouse gives her best smize on the cover of Germany’s I Love You magazine shot by Marcus Gaab, hair by Oscar James, and makeup by Valente Frazier. I love the pop of yellow on her lids which is such a striking contrast next to her bright red lapels. The fact that Tyra’s contour game is always on 10 definitely helps. Chic, chic, chic! Now this is nowhere near professional enough to pull off at work, and it’s far too adventurous for the club. I would definitely save this for those times when you just want to stand out. You can pull out all the stops for a funky fashion event, or a fun night out with your girls. If you’re digging Tyra’s bright yellow lids, charcoal cut-crease and nude lips, get her look with the items below.

Rih Rih sure does know how to utilize her assets. As the newly minted leader of the resurgence of 1990’s grunge, Rihanna introduces us to her trashy/girly take on the suspender tights. For an appearance in London over the weekend she wore a sweet pair from hot British designer, Henry Holland. Paired with American flag denim shorts, an over-sized denim jacket, and brown fur gillet the grungy wave persisted. I don’t know if I could rock this whole look from head to toe, but what I do know is that I am dying over those tights. Any look that comes off as a confusing contradiction is a look for me. I’m weird like that. *Shrugs* I would pair these tights with a mini flared skirt for daytime or a black sequined hot pants for a night out. If you love these as much as I do take a look at some of the finds below.
Henry Holland Suspender Tights – 21.00
Gipsy Mock Bow Suspender Tights – $12.58
Is this not the most awesome men’s fashion photo shoot ever? Brooklyn rapper Theophilus London got with the good boys of GQ Magazine to showcase why the camel coat is the must-have item of the season and how to rock it. He does it so effortlessly, without looking too “suit-and-tie” and still maintaining his rap-tastic swag. In this quick fashion haul of topcoats he shows you how to dress it up or down. Guys take notes!
