beyonce cr fashion book 1

After posting a Kanye-esque masked teaser on their website earlier this week, CR Fashion Book has unveiled Beyoncé as the cover star for issue number five. Styled by Carine Roitfeld herself and photographed by Pierre Debusschere (who worked on Bey’s “Ghost” video among others), Mrs. Carter looks as stunning as ever in a floral Yohji Yamamoto piece, while sexing things up in a revealing Céline coat, with nothing much underneath. And then there’s that Riccardo Tisci surfer look, complete with a Chanel — yes, Chanel — surfboard surfbort.

The issue hits newsstands on September 4, which is also Beyoncé’s 33rd birthday. That‘s what you get the girl who has everything.

Following his previous Pro Model collaborations, adidas Originals has tapped Big Sean to redesign their famous Metro Attitude shoe, as worn by Patrick Ewing and Run-D.M.C. in the ’80s. Drawing inspiration from G.O.O.D. Music’s storied recording sessions out in Hawaii, where My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Hall of Fame were born, the hi-top sneaker juxtaposes black suede with floral-patterned leather, adding hints of gold on the heel. There’s also lyrics from “First Chain” on the insole, allowing Sean to really leave his stamp on the shoe.

The Big Sean x adidas Originals Metro Attitude Hi drops on September 13, retailing for $165 at select adidas Originals retailers, as well as online. Hit the jump for a full photo gallery.

Nicki Minaj

The MTV Video Music Awards returned to the City of Angels for their 31st annual show on Sunday night. Before the main show moved indoors at The Forum, many of today’s stars got dressed to impress for red carpet arrivals. Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez, Usher, Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora, Jessie J, Tyga, Chris Brown, Maroon 5, and more arrived to screaming fans as they posed for photos and caught up with MTV News for live interviews.

Some head turners included Amber Rose, Kim Kardashian and sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Katy Perry and Riff Raff, a glowing Kelly Rowland and her baby bump, Gwen Stefani, and Solange Knowles. Check out the full gallery from the MTV VMAs red carpet below, plus some interviews from the pre-show with host Sway.

There may be more famous and more exciting power couples in the hip hop hemisphere…but my vote for purely best looking goes to ASAP Rocky and his supermodel girlfriend Chanel Iman. Just look at these cheekbones! For all the stereotypes about haughty snotty models, and all the stereotypes about surly asshole rappers…in all my experiences, Chanel and Rocky have been the total opposite. If you’ve watched the recent Noisey documentary about Rocky, you can see some of the endearing personality I’m talking about. And as for Chanel…I remember this one time when Rocky excited introduced me to her as “his other favorite woman” and she never turned up her nose or gave me the side-eye. She was very warm and sweet. Months later, Rocky had to do a string of interviews for the BET Awards in LA, I noticed Chanel sitting in the hallway, on the floor, very content, just waiting for her BF for over an hour…like she wasn’t one of the most photographed women in fashion. Kind of amazing.

Anyways, it was only a matter of time for these two to end up with their own Vogue Magazine editorial…and I can see them as cover subjects too. Fashion fan Fucci posted scans of their Vogue September 2014 shoot, spotted on Complex Style Channel.


Supreme is gearing up to cause yet another riot scene at their flagshp stores. This Thursday (Aug 21), the New York skate empire will release its Fall/Winter 2014 collection (Drop 1).

Aside from some buttery jackets, the standard button downs and assorted jerseys, they are also dropping some collaboration t-shirts with KRS-One.

New York, London, and L.A. will get their items first on the 21st before the online store gets flooded on 28th.

Slay! I can’t get enough of Kanye and Kim Kardashian’s little offspring. North West is just so…so…pretty, all pudgy kneecaps and round tummies and big eyes and peach cheeks. She’s always perfectly dressed. Pastel and neutral cashmeres, nubby linens, no crass logos or ironic hashtags or Calabasas sparkles. And she doesn’t promote anything, or pass judgements, or annoy anyone with things like projects, or selfies, or words. We can all enjoy this tiny person’s days of innocence…and the fact that she is so damn cute in every photo.

Perhaps the fact that North has sat for her first solo fashion shoot is the beginning of a less pristine period in her life…but it was inevitable. Technically, her first editorial was when she stole the show from mom and dad in Vogue…but the 1-year-old will be featured all by herself in the new issue of former Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld’s glossy mag CR Fashion Book, shot by Michael Avedon (who is the grandson of legendary fashion photographer Richard Avedon). Just over a year ago, CR featured Kim K. on their cover, heavily pregnant with North at the time and rocking full top and bottom matte gold grills.

Stand-up comic and actor Robin Williams has died of an apparent suicide at the age of 63. His body was found at his home in Tiburon, CA, and the Marin County coroner is attributing his death to suicide by asphyxiation. While his rep did not specifically confirm that the frenetic, often self-deprecating, hyper-wit comedian committed suicide, a released statement does suggest as much:

“Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”



Drake and Lil’ Wayne’s “Drake vs. Lil’ Wayne” U.S. tour kicked off this weekend in Buffalo, NY. Fans play a big role in the battle-style tour via the newly launched interactive app that can be downloaded to your phone.

Speaking of Drake, October’s Very Own hit Instagram on Sunday to reveal photos of his exclusive “Drake vs. Lil’ Wayne” Air Jordan 3 PE (Player Exclusives).
