HighSnobette Best Of 2012

01 January 2013, 03.28 | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 comments »

QueenoftheJungleMelodyEhsanijpg HighSnobette Best Of 2012

What we have always loved about fashion is it’s potential to bring joy. We as HighSnobette editors feel so lucky to not only have witnessed many of these special moments but to also have come to know and watch grow many of the artists and designers behind some of our favorite projects. Below in no particular order we share what we regard as some of the best, joy-bringing efforts of 2012:

Designer Melody Ehsani’s star has been on the rise for quite some time now, but her “Queen of the Jungle” necklace (above) in many ways stamped her official arrival. We lost count of the stylish celebrities spotted in this vivacious fun piece.

Leah McSweeney has always been a force of personality. She literally is the MTTM brand, as backed by an intensely loyal supporting staff + fan base. Like many young brands the label went through its stumbles when investors pulled out, but the tenacious McSweeney was able to hold on to the name and this year the label found its own inimitable stride again, as marked by the brand’s “Supreme Bitch” snapback cap, which received the blessing of none other mega-style star Rihanna.

See many more “bests” on the next page. And a very Happy New Year to all. Thank you so much for your support in 2012.

Rihanna ‘Supreme Bitch’ Graphic

RihannaSupremeBitch 540x520 Rihanna Supreme Bitch Graphic

Let’s see if we can’t connect the dots between all the “Supreme Bitch” references that have been flying around as of late, starting with last week when we posted an image of designer Tanaya Henry wearing MTTM’s “Supreme Bitch” snapback cap. We also mentioned the same white cap Henry was sporting was originally spotted on Rihanna. You can see all that back story here. Fast forward to this past weekend and it appears a Rihanna fan sent her the above graphic, which she subsequently Tweeted. And as we already reported, the white MTTM “Supreme Bitch” snapback is of course long sold out, but have no fear, the camo version is now available for pre-order here.

On another note, Rihanna as per usual has been Tweeting up a storm while on vacation in Bermuda. See a smoking hot image of her in a swimsuit titled “Your Fave” on the next page–not sure if it’s yet another hidden message to her on-again-off-again paramour, but just observing from very far, I can’t help but think–darned if the love affairs that miss by an inch aren’t the most painful to extract oneself from! You’re like, but we can do this! We’re so close! But nope, that inch may as well be a billion miles. Pure torture. On a positive note, those are indeed the ones you learn the most from, but oh what a painful lesson.

Video: Rihanna Peforming ‘Stay’ In London #777

23 November 2012, 19.49 | Posted in Music, celebrity | No comments »

From her recently released Unapologetic album see Rihanna perform my favorite single thus far, “Stay,” recorded during her recent 777 concert tour. This version took place in London which was live streamed and in it she wears some of the fashion items we discussed here. Rihanna’s voice has never been her greatest asset, in my opinion it’s her ability to telepath truth, but we can observe that her vocals are more muscular these days, no doubt built up from seemingly endless months of touring plus studio work.

And where’d our woman spend Thanksgiving? Well you you know who did you know what with you know who…..

Rihanna Billboard Magazine–Will Unapologetic Be Her 1st No. 1?

22 November 2012, 19.17 | Posted in Music, celebrity | No comments »

Billboard 540x525 Rihanna Billboard Magazine  Will Unapologetic Be Her 1st No. 1?

Rihanna lands the cover of Billboard magazine’s November 24th issue,which includes a feature breaking down the singer’s many accomplishments. According to the article, “every November for the past four years, Rihanna has released a million selling album.” What’s suprising is that none of those have reached No. 1 on Billboard’s charts so the question is whether or not Unapologetic will be her first.

Since the article was written, Rihanna’s song “Diamonds” hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart, tying the 24-year old with Madonna and the Supremes who also have 12 chart toppers. The three artists who have had more No. 1s are Michael Jackson, with 13, Mariah Carey, 18, and the Beatles, 20. On a side note, who would ever guess Carey has more hits than Jackson?

Rih3 418x540 Rihanna Backstage Huff Shot

Rihanna lets loose the badgirl backstage huffing & braless after one of her 777 concerts. This one I believe was post-Berlin. On the next page see her London stage outfit, highlighted by a leopard print cone bra–the black Madonna indeed! And I know someone out there reading this knows who designed the bra or at the very list the  “smoking hand” coordinated outfit she also wore so give it up! Tonight she ends up the tour in NYC–finally those horribly persecuted reporters who’ve had the unbearable task of touring the world and staying in the best hotels gratis can be freed : /
