Rihanna has us talking again! But, let’s be real…when did we ever really stop? She is the cover girl for the new Febuary/March issue of Complex magazine and she is not rocking the typical 1 or 2 cover spread….but 7!! Each cover represents each of her albums which as fans know, holds a different “Rihanna Era” in each.
Cover 1—MUSIC OF THE SUN
Cover 2— A GIRL LIKE ME
Cover 3—Good Girl Gone Bad
Cover 4—Rated R
Cover 6—Talk That Talk
Cover 7— Unapologetic

“Sexy Seduction” is the theme that Jason Wu was going for for his Pre Fall 2013 collection. Since he has most recently been known for dressing the First Lady, Michelle Obama, for MOST of her important events…I was a bit surprised by the direction of his latest collection. But seeing as no person OR designer would want to be put in a creative box, Wu going a bit edgier is the right decision. I would say though, that the collection seems to consist of things that we have seen before (and ALOT lately). The leather, the sheer panels, and feminine cocktails dresses. But, in the end, it’s good to see Mr. Wu pushing himself a little out of his comfort zone….Check it out!

Zac Posen has never been one to shy away from drama, and the designs in his Pre Fall 2013 lineup fit perfectly with his reputation. Not all of his dresses fit his “opera-esque” vibe, he also threw in some edge with construction and leather….check it out!

I know, I’ve drifted a bit away from my fashion posts lately…I’ve been focusing on music more. But no more people! It’s time to share with you some Pre-Fall 2013 shows!

The November issue of Prestige Hong Kong features Chris Brown in high fashion duds and speaking out in a rare interview. I enjoyed the interview because I feel like it showed a side of Chris that we don’t often see…the POSITIVE side. Here are some highlights from his interview, along with his fashion spread:
What do you want the world to know about who you are and what you stand for?
As a 23-year-old young entertainer, I want the world to see my art and hopefully be inspired by it, promote positivity with what I do now – with painting, with fashion, with directing, with creativity as far as videos and cinema. I want to have people admire that and hopefully have people follow in my footsteps.
Turning to your music: your range is amazing. So many different genres. That’s kind of been your MO from the beginning, right?
Definitely with Fortune that’s the direction I wanted to go, but even with the F.A.M.E. album. What I wanted to do was not set the bar with a certain kind of style. I didn’t want people to say. “He’s just R&B.” Yes, I will sing an R&B song. But then I’ll do a pop song, then I’ll do a song with a country kind of feel, a reggae feel. I always want to be eclectic with my music. I don’t think music has a race. I think music has a soul and it’s just a feeling. What evokes the set of emotions from you is what I try to bring out…whatever flows, whatever I feel, I just write.
Ok Rihanna Navy, I know ya’ll have probably already seen this video about a hundred times since it premiered but I could not help but post this. This is hands down, my favorite Rihanna video ever…Why? I think its the most honest and artistic video she’s done in her career and it fits the song beyond perfectly. So if your living under a rock and haven’t seen the vid yet…
In the November 2012 issue of GQ Magazine, G.O.O.D. music artist Big Sean shows fans how to stay warm for the winter with major layering and skipping the coat. I personally love this look on Big Sean and I hope that this shoot inspires him to switch up his style a little. Check the rest of the pics from his spread below:
The magazine also named Big Sean the hottest rookie of 2012! Do you guys agree??
