Dame Westwood knows no Kanye

dame westwood Dame Westwood knows no Kanye

A perfect example of delusions of grandeur or notoriety that can sometimes overtake  the media and their coverage of  celebrities.  As reported by NYMag  Vivienne Westwood had no clue who Kanye west was, when he greeted her after her runway show.  And to be honest that is perfectly okay. We live in really big world. To assume that the knowledge of a certain celebrity is global is just absurd…

KimK & Reg: No Makeup Still Amazing!

kimkboobies KimK & Reg: No Makeup Still Amazing!

Yes, people, this is a gratuitous shot of KimK for no other reason than we’re fond of her around these parts. Well, wait. Given that we like her in general, the thing that’s kind of cool about this shot is that she’s wearing little-to-no-makeup, which is rare for her. Either way as you can see she’s still smoking hot. And can you imagine being a guy in a gym trying to workout next to her with that top she’s wearing?? Reggie better have kept his game face on the whole time he was in that gym, otherwise Mami be creating all sorts of havoc!

After the flip, more images of K & R, including one in which Kim flaunts her Chanel bag and her very junk-filled trunk.

tmfront Taylor Momsen on Location for Gossip Girl

Pictured on location for “Gossip Girl,” Ms. Momsen (or, rather, her stylist) very much occupies a fashion lane that at least for this HighSnobette editor feels right at home. Love the boots. The pair on the left is directional for its oxblood red color and the one of the right for its menswear styling.

501 Boyfriend Cut Jeans

levis1 mini  501 Boyfriend Cut Jeans

As much as I love the look of  some pre destroyed jeans , I also love the idea of  customizing them, tearing and ,bleaching  exactly where I want . My  denim choices often take me back to the originator, Levis. The 501 Boyfriend cut jeans are the perfect throw on anytime jeans, that give you room to truly make them your own.

On a side note Kanye west rocked a Levis denim jacket , to some runway shows. Looks like some of  his emulators, who too often dismiss Levis for newer, “cooler”  brands, will find themselves rummaging a thrift store bin to find one very soon. Don’t you just love the irony of trends and celebrity style…

Closer look of the $78.00 jeans on the next page.

Y-3 Fall 2009: Check Out the Front Row!

lupekanyemillakimreggie Y 3 Fall 2009: Check Out the Front Row!

Look at the peanut gallery in place for the Y-3 Fall 2009 show! From left-to-right: Lupe Fiasco, Kanye “Launcher of a Thousand Trends” West, Milla Jovovich, KimK and KimK’s man Reggie. They’re not pictured here, but to the right of Reggie is Ian Thorpe and borderline super model Veronica Webb. I’ve always wondered what it would feel like to be sitting among a crowd like this. Kanye and Kim are obviously at the top of their respective games these days, but I wonder if one or two of the other ones don’t sit there secretly being eaten away by imposter syndrome.

mrmrs Mr. & Mrs. Carter at NBA All Star Weekend

The Carters sharing a private laugh and just generally enjoying each other’s company at a charity event held in conjunction with the NBA All Star event. Looks like Bee took a minute to get her nails fixed, too, thank god!

Images are from WireImage.

Steal a look at the Carters’ footwear on the next page: Jay is wearing Adidas Shelltoes and the missus has on some sky-high flashy numbers and because I’m not a geek like my partner, Samia, I have no idea who they’re designed by.

Nina Sky: No Words

How would YOU describe this dress? 'Cause I can't even begin.

How would YOU describe this dress? 'Cause I can't even begin.

We’ve always been big boosters of Nina Sky, women who know how to rock fashionable, street-inspired looks as well as anyone. Plus, they’re keeping it going in an industry that chews up and spits out its young talent for blood sport. But this outfit that Mami on the left wore to an NBA All Star event this past weekend, I am left speechless. Is this what it’s come to??

Update: Samia let me know that this dress is from Oak’s Bond Age collection (no longer on the site), which included a bunch of designers who created all these bdsm-inspired clothes and accessories. This dress is by Vena Cava. I still don’t like it even know now I know it’s supposed to be all arty. It’s like a sleazy version of those fake tux tops that people used to wear forever ago. It just feels clownish to me. Plus, I find public displays of pubic hair–draw with a pencil or otherwise–to be kinda gross. Sorry, but I do. Worse yet,  I saw the back of the dress and the drawn-on butt looks all saggy, which is not okay. The Nina Sky woman wearing it probably has a perkier butt!

If you’re the rubber-necking type, there’s one more after the jump.

Beyonce’s Mani: Opposite of a Good Look!

12 February 2009, 20.15 | Posted in celebrity | 5 comments »

beebustednails Beyonces Mani: Opposite of a Good Look!es, Yes, those are Beyonce’s nails you’re looking at!! I mean, what the damn eff Bee, when exactly was the last time you got your nails did?? They are so bad in fact that I can’t help but think it’s a media stunt (granted a minor one), especially since she’s wearing what is supposedly her almost-never-worn engagement ring on the other hand. This is Bee, after all, the high priestness of Black Southern Belles, who do not do busted pedicures. And if if this is her attempt to be edgy, it’s not working! Mainly ’cause the chipped-nail look only works if you’re a skinny, young girl who smokes Marlboros and only ever wears skinny jeans and hightop Chucks. Sorry, but otherwise, you just look jacked-up and lazy.
