New York Fashion Week has come to an end…with a bit of controversy when “IT” girls Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Kendall Jenner, and Bella Hadid walked down the Marc Jacobs runway in fake multi-colored dread locks. People of the Twitter (like Children of the Corn but worse) didn’t appreciate the look.
“Why does Marc Jacobs think it’s okay to hire a bunch of white models and give them faux dreadlocks for his show?” asked one Tweeter. Were you bothered by the look?
New York Fashion Week is in full swing and, as per usual, the reality TV stars never miss an opportunity to be photographed. Lucky us. 😉
Above: former (maybe?do I dare dream?) Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes was chosen by Malan Breton to close out his show, wearing a dress worth over ONE MILLION dollars. Why NeNe? “She embodies all women,” gushed Malan. “She really does. I think from my fanbase and other people that I know, she’s the one that’s constantly motivating women to be confident, to be who they are. And, you know, I love the Housewives franchise; I’m friends with so many of them. NeNe’s a very strong person and knows who she is. People admire her so much. For me, as a designer for women, it’s very important to me that women know who they are when they wear these pieces.”
Yeezy collaborator Vanessa Beecroft says the wait was intentional, “Everyone was in a state of meditation. I believe it was planned because West wanted the audience to get into this state of having to observe and having to stay.”
A slew of reality stars attended the MTV VMAs last night: Farrah Abraham (in an interesting red carpet look…), pregnantJenelle Evans, Snooki & Jwoww, and more. Did you tune in for the show last night? When I heard they were giving Kanye West several minutes to do and say whatever he wanted, I decided to pass on that ranty mess. I heard Beyonce was phenomenal.
