kids-8

Supreme is honoring the film that gave the world a glimpse into real downtown skate culture in mid ’90s New York City. The year was 1994, Supreme just opened its doors and rising skaters like Harold Hunter, Peter Bici, Justin Pierce were on the come-up. Then, KIDS was released in the summer of ’95 and nothing was the same. The young cast that included a freash Rosario Dawson, Harold Hunter, Leo Fitzpatrick, Justin Pierce, ChloĆ« Sevigny and more became underground rock stars overnight. Larry Clark and Harmony Korrine’s brutally honest depiction of youth culture at the time became a parent’s worst nightmare. Its impact still resonates to this day.

Hamilton Harrison, who makes a brief cameo in the film, is working on a full length documentary about his deceased friends in the film. Though, he wasn’t a main character in KIDS, he was a real life friend of cast members Harold Hunter (RIP) and Justin Pierce.

BAM is also hosting a 20th anniversary screening of the film and Q&A session in June.

rihanna-dior-4

Just months after being officially announced as the first-ever black spokesmodel, Rihanna stars in Christian Dior’s Secret Garden 2015 campaign. Shot by Steven Klein in Versailles, France, the final result is nothing but stunning, as RiRi is stunning as ever in some of Dior’s lush pieces in the dark garden-themed spread.

The pop superstar is seen posing along the private quarters in leather trench coat and bag, before moving indoors wearing a long sequin gown. In another shot the Bajan beauty clutches onto her handbag, wearing a veiled fascinator and plush cropped vest.

Check out photos from Rihanna’s first Dior ad, plus behind-the-scenes video below.

If the White House Correspondents Dinner is Nerd Prom, then Anna Wintour’s annual Met Gala is…Fashion Halloween? Well, this year, since the Costume Institute exhibit is honoring Chinese art and how it has influenced fashion…I’m cringing in advance about all the possible ways that celebs might mishandle this theme. If someone wears a kimono I’ll go postal in the nearest Forever 21.

Russel-Wilson-Ciara-State-Dinner
(Hair. Laid.)

After first being spotted together earlier in April, Ciara and Russell Wilson made a very public debut on Tuesday night when Ciara accompanied her new Seattle Seahawks football playing beau to the White House State Dinner to honor Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (huh? Why was Wilson even invited to that? By the way, Abe is getting a lot of heat for censoring journalists back in Japan). The couple played coy by instagramming about White House china patterns (Seriously. Both Ciara and Russell)….but looked very handsome together in the photo opps.

Meanwhile…Ciara’s fans have been spamming her ex-fiance/babydaddy Future’s mentions with endless football emoji.
His response?….

“Every time I crash the Internet, it’s like this little drop of truth. Every time that I say something that’s extremely truthful out loud, it literally breaks the Internet. So what are we getting the rest of the time?

These are Kanye’s opening words in his Time 100 Most Influential people list. This year Yeezus is among the honored bunch — which also includes the likes of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Bradley Cooper, Misty Copeland, Jorge Ramos, his wife Kim and more.

“I don’t care about having a legacy, I don’t care about being remembered,” says Kanye about his purpose in life. Ironically, instead of the fame, Yeezy once again says he just wants to better the world through his art, fashion, ideas, products, etc.
