Sila Sahin clearly loves Missguided, as the Turkish-German actress sported another dress from the brand this week — a $67 Charlotte Crepe Deep v Bodycon number:

Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2015 Couture.

It has been four months since Jean Paul Gaultier brought his ready-to-wear business to a close with all the pomp and circumstance fit for a designer of his magnitude. Couture is his brand’s main focus now and he began this new adventure with a collection centered around saying “I Do” — a phrase women the world over are already well-versed in uttering at the sight of just about anything Gaultier.

Elie Saab Couture Spring 2015.

If one knows anything about Elie Saab, the most important element to his aesthetic is his celebration of the woman for whom no adornment is too much. Beaded embellishment? Saab says bring it on. Sheer-on-sheer construction? Saab says watch me work. Elie Saab’s Spring 2015 Couture Collection was, for better or worse, no different. Models sauntered the runway in the most precious of jeweled gowns with embroidered and sequined detailing delicately covering all the right places.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s name has been on the lips of the who’s who in the industry after her stellar performance in the 2013 film, Belle, but we have been obsessed with the British beauty for quite some time. With a name derived from the Zulu phrase meaning “Our Treasure”, it seems as if the actress was bound for success as soon as she entered the world.

Berkshire Nude Hose for Women of Color.

So everytime I emerge from my house and my legs appear bare, my friends touch my legs, and ask, “your legs are so flawless?”I always have to reiterate that yes, I’m wearing hose–Berkshire nude hose to be exact:

Balmain Pre-Fall 2015.

Balmain’s popularity in the fashion industry and beyond has been quite strong for some time now — thanks in no large part to designer Olivier Rousteing and his bevy of stylish fans and friends. With the iconic French fashion house opening a new boutique in London next week and another set to open its doors in the trendy SoHo neighborhood of the Big Apple, the only way is up for the brand, as long as its customers get on-board with their hard-earned cash.

The Selma London Premiere.

Selma has gone across the pond! Tonight, the film had its Premiere in London with the film’s stars in attendance, as well as a couple of other stylish ladies.
Let’s see what they wore!

Christian Dior Couture Spring 2015.

Raf Simons’ Christian Dior Spring 2015 Couture Collection was anything but predictable. Yes, the typical inspirations of a floral spring awakening were at play, but Simons took a very different lens with his bold interpretations of this season’s looks. His pieces took us on a journey of a rather rainy spring — with waterproof clear coats, cleverly printed with flowers through to long-sleeved graphic blazen bodysuits with matching shiny boots.

Chanel Couture Spring 2015.

Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel Spring 2015 Couture Collection was an ode to spring, in a most literal sense, but that didn’t make it any less beautiful. Leading the pack was wunderkind male model Baptiste Giabiconi, who donned a rarely seen scruffy beard and had his straw hat and watering can handy. It got us thinking what type of mischief might be in store for Chanel’s fantasy garden.

Kris Jenner’s Chanel Spring 2015 Couture Show Fall 2014 Black and White Tweed Jacket with Silver Trim and Resort 2015 Sheer Trousers.

Mom-ager Kris Jenner saw her daughter Kendall Jenner strut down the Chanel Spring 2015 Couture show catwalk, while she sported a Fall 2014 Black and White Tweed Jacket with Silver Trim and Resort 2015 Sheer Trousers in the front row:

Fashion Scoop: A.P.C. Designer Uses N-word Repeatedly in Presentation, Kim Kardashian Has A New Commercial About Selfies, and Victoria Secret Swim Show Coming This February.

  • I call this one look Last Ni**as in Paris. Why? Because it’s the sweet spot when the hood –the ‘hood– meets Bertolucci’s movie Last Tango in Paris. So that’s ‘Ni**as in Paris’ and Last Ni**as in Paris. [Nervous laughter from audience.] Oh, I am glad some people laughed with me. Yes, I mean, it’s nice to play with the strong signifiers. The Timberland here is a very strong ghetto signifier. In the ghetto, it is all the Timberlands, all the big chain. Not at the same time—never; it’s bad taste. So we designed Timberlands with Timberland…” We felt it best to present that statement uninterrupted and allow you to draw your own conclusions. It was made by Jean Touitou of A.P.C. who said that inspiration for the name stemmed from a partnership (and blessing) with Kanye West. (Complex)

Giambattista Valli Couture Spring 2015.

Giambattista Valli never ceases to amaze. In their Couture Spring 2015 presentation, the central focus was placed upon mixing both feminine pieces with those inspired by menswear. The neutral-based pallette of the collection, coupled with its subtle yet dynamic intricacies, validates the fact that Giambattista Valli knows a thing or two about incorporating that extra bit of edgy pizzazz.

La Perla Atelier Couture Spring 2015.

La Perla has set its sights on Couture. For the brand’s first-ever collection of the sort in Paris, it combined its penchant for sultry lingerie with functional sportswear in an extraordinary and newfangled catwalk presentation. With supermodel Naomi Campbell closing the show, one could easily tell that the brand meant business–and that its latest attempt at injecting sex appeal into the fashion industry had the cosign of some major influencers.

Fashion Scoop:Twitterverse Up in Arms Over Miss Jamaica’s Miss Universe Loss,Cara Delevingne Interviews Kim Kardashian for LOVE Magazine, Pharrell And His Hat To Appear On The Simpsons, and Celebs Reject SAG Mani-Cam.

AFP 537135352 S TEN ENT USA FLmiss jamaica 2015 Ms Universe JAI1338The twitterverse was up in arms this weekend over the perceived slight of Miss Jamaica, Kaci Fennell, who many thought deserved the Miss Universe crown. Equipped with an unorthodox short cut (versus the voluminous locks of typical contestants) and an absolutely gorgeous visage, Ms. Fennell was a fan favorite because of her intelligence and gumption (apparently she named Bob Marley and Usain Bolt as Jamaica’s greatest contributions to the world). The hashtag #MissJamaicaShouldHaveWon quickly materialized; she certainly was the people’s choice, but Miss Colombia, Paulina Vega, ultimately took the crown. (USA Today)

Atelier Versace Spring 2015 Couture.

29 Atelier Versace Spring 2015 CoutureVersace never skimps on the sex appeal, and their Spring 2015 couture show was further proof of their predilection. Even buttoned up pant suits had blazers falling sensuously off the shoulder, while most gowns seemed to play with cut outs in new ways, with sinewy incisions lining the curves of the female form.

Nigerian Black Dolls Selling Better Than Barbie.

Featured image

Queens Of Africa  a Nigeria-based company has released the latest line of pretty Black Barbies and they’re hugely popular and have impressively surpassed the sales of iconic Barbie. We all know that as a little girl, a Black Barbie was probably best thing we could’ve ever clutched out of our toy box. Since those days, other brands have created Black dolls in the form of plastic or a plush toy and they are all a part of a larger underground culture of Black doll collectors.
