Art is not restricted to paint and canvas; fashion can be art too. We have earlier seen haute couture as a form of art with Valentine’s day flower dress entirely made of 1,725 roses, Edible chocolate gowns and most expensive designer dresses like the $275,000 gold coin gown. Now, designer Zac Posen redefines haute couture with his masterpiece, a 24-karat gold gown worth $1.5 million. The designer teamed up with Magnum Ice Cream to create a one-of-a-kind couture gown inspired by their newest Magnum Gold ice cream bar. The sleeveless gown with a plunging neckline and train designed to recreate the melting ice cream effect, is made entirely from more than 10,000 24k gold sequins in five different sizes which were hand-created from sheets of 24k gold.
“Creating my first-ever 24-karat gold dress was a truly priceless experience,” said Posen. The decadent gown was designed in a span of two weeks and the delicate gold sequins were sewn in the dress using a special embroidery technique to accentuate the female shape.
“Ice cream and fashion represent decadence, sensuousness, and luxury — something you wear or eat for your own indulgent pleasure,” Posen adds.
The gown will be worn by Brazilian actress Caroline Correa in a short promotional film “As Good As Gold” for the ice cream, and will make its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 18.

Rihanna’s world tour has been dealt another blow after her opening act, rapper ASAP Rocky, pulled out of two shows due to illness.
The singer’s Diamonds tour got off to a rocky start earlier this month when she fell sick with laryngitis, forcing her to call off the second and third dates on her North American leg of her trek.
The tour subsequently got back on track, but now her support act has also fallen ill.
ASAP Rocky was unable to perform at Rihanna’s shows in Detroit, Michigan and Chicago, Illinois on Thursday and Friday.
Rihanna has since issued an apology via Twitter.
“Sorry Detroit Chicago ASAP really wanted to be there for you guys! We wish him a speedy recovery!” she wrote.
“Now it’s Wop’s turn” announced Gucci Mane, as he officially changed his name to Guwop recently… for all of 32 minutes. This isn’t exactly his first attempt at updating his public image; after all, this is a man who tattooed a fairly sizeable ice cream cone onto his own face back in 2011. But while Gucci’s in[k]famous new look had coincided with a stuttering phase in his career marred by prison sentences and a creative drought, Gucci has recently been enjoying the kind of momentum which made him such a captivating presence to begin with.
Gucci isn’t alone in finding his feet again either; his 1017 Brick Squad collective and extended ATLien family have been a dominant force in forward-looking rap music during 2013. Propelled by unusual, warped synth progressions, hi hat rolls and trunk-rattling low-end, the sound of Atlanta at the moment is as weird as anything you might traditionally associate with underground or leftfield rap. While Waka Flocka Flame and OJ Da Juiceman have made vigorous returns in recent months by expanding on their own bonkers formulae, Future has been toying with auto-tune to peel away some of rap’s testosterone, revealing vulnerable, even romantic qualities. Meanwhile Young Thug has defied his own uninspired moniker, making an emotive mess that could be the best or the worst thing I’ve heard all year. Whatever these records might or might not make you feel, though, it’s difficult to deny their progressive intent.
Then there’s Young Scooter, Gucci’s new partner in crime, who is also having a promising year of his own. His Street Lottery mixtape – released in January – is a more down-the-line vision of street struggles, but its bleak, heavy-hearted outlook is engaging and offers a nice counterpoint for Brick Squad’s larger personalities. That’s mostly how it works on Free Bricks 2, as Scooter settles into the tape’s moody, late-night aesthetic, while Gucci lets his mind wander in his inimitable word-drunk style. It’s audible when Gucci is enjoying his writing and now is one of the times, using the anxiousness in the production to arrive at intimidating, if partly goofy threats like: “I got mob ties, you moulinyan, you a fucking prick / kiss your cheek and say capiche and then I mail your mum your dick.”
Perhaps it’s that there’s been an overload of full-throttle trap maximalism of late, but it’s the slower, simplistic productions which feel most effective here. The looped piano motif which forms the backdrop for ‘Re-Up’, for example, is a perfect fit for Scooter’s resourceful hustling (“I can still cook it with the dope wet, 20% bricks I can work with that”), while the wistful ‘Faster’ finds Gucci back behind bars, counting the days with the longing of a man intimate with the sadness of serving time. Waka Flocka Flame too, is deployed effectively in a rare subdued role, providing the hook to the Zaytoven produced ‘Remix rerock’ that stresses the numbness at the heart of the song’s drug-pushing tales.
“I took some time to live my life/ But don’t think I’m just his little wife/ Don’t get it twisted, get it twisted/ This my shit, bow down, bitches,” Mrs. Carter proclaims on the heavy-hitting anthem.
The song segues into another one called “I Been On,” helmed by Polow Da Don, Timbaland, and Planet VI. A thuggish B pays homage to her Houston roots, chopping and screwing her voice while shouting out H-town legends Willie D, Pimp C, and UGK.
“I heard your boo was talking lip/ I told my crew to smack that trick,” she raps, adding, “The capital B means I’m ’bout that life.”
Hear B like you’ve never heard her before.
The 23-year-old took to Twitter on Sunday to reveal that Kiss Land will serve as the follow-up to last year’s Trilogy.
“gonna drop some information for the fans today,” he tweeted before revealing an image of the title spelled out in neon green.
The Weeknd released his Trilogy compilation in November featuring material off his three mixtapes—House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence. The album debuted at No. 4, selling 86,000 copies in its first week.
More than 86 years and with considerable consistency, luxury retailer Neiman Marcus has been gathering fanfare among fashionistas and design aficionados for various product ranges. We draw memory from the 2012 Christmas gifts, Limited edition Fighter motorcycles, and the Camaro convertibles which were incidentally sold out in 3 minutes alone. So this year, the fashionable elite, more so the ladies can prepare their shopping lists for the Boyarde Messenger hand painted high-heeled shoes, which bring to life many different art genres via the footwear range. What this range also reminds us of, is the eccentric bunch of socialites and celebrities, who would start clamoring sooner or later for their pair as soon as they lay their eyes on them. Some names would be Kim Kardashian, Tamara Ecclestone, and Celine Dion who are known for their footwear collection.
Designer Charlotte Olympia is the person, whose ideas have come forth in the form of these artistic shoes. She has drawn inspiration from various artists, and their genre of artwork before transferring them to the decorative form of these unique shoe collection.
She then partnered with body paint specialist Boyarde Messenger, who then transferred the art on to these specific pumps which will be carrying works like Pablo Picasso, Howard Hodgskin, Vincent Van Gogh, Jackson Pollock, Roy Lichtenstein, Pablo Picasso, and Piet Mondrian. In fact, she painted 100 exclusive pairs for the Neiman Marcus Charlotte Olympia project alone!
The shoes by Olympia are more popularly called ‘Dolly’, and perhaps it now becomes clear why. While some would be more than enough interested to wear them as part of their outlandish getups, some would collect them as a part of their claim to the tag of ‘art shoe collector’, though there might not be one of them we know just as yet.
Since this is almost going to be a visual fetish of abstract footwear, one could also take a look at some other pieces of notable pairs, such as the most expensive shoes for men, and the most expensive footwear for women.
When dancer, model, and actress Deta Von Teese does something, or in this dons something, it remains etched in the memory of her fans and fashion geeks alike. This time, she managed to gain the shutterbugs’ attention by wearing what happens to be the world’s first fully-articulated 3D printed dress. At the Ace Hotel in New York City earlier in the week, the sassy Von Teese turned up in the fully constructed black gown, which is known to have been created with nylon fiber with more than 3,000 joints as a part of the design. Fitting rather sensuously around the star’s curvaceous body, the cameras clicked with impunity, and she seemed to be enjoying the attention for good. While we saw her in the dress, we were left wondering if Lady Gaga is getting her designers to create a special and indeed outrageous edition of the outfit already!
According to details furbished in media so far, the dress has been created as an exclusive piece by Dita’s designing studios called Francis Bitonti and Michael Schmidt. Due to its unique construction, there are 3,000 reported joints in the gown which will fit perfectly on the person wearing the dress, which perhaps is a way to get the ‘sexy’ tag but with innovation.
Designers also reveal that the gown has over 12,000 Swarovski Crystals, throughout the dress and they have been placed uniquely by following the Fibonacci sequence. This gives it the unique appearance and fitting which can be seen in the photos of actress-model-designer here.
Technically speaking, the floor length dress has been created with the help of Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technique, in which the special fabric is built up layering plastic powder together with a special laser gun.
The components created especially are then netted with each other to create the dress, but these fittings have been done keeping the Fibonacci sequence in mind, and the shape of Dita Von Teese’s body. This actually is the reason why the garment fits so very perfectly on her. This would also mean that any garment such as this one, will have to be created on a customized basis, against the order of some fashion crazy celebrity.
Parker Ighile is stepping away from the mixing desk to grab his own piece of the spotlight.
Ighile produced “What Now” by Rihanna and “Do it like a Dude” for Jessie J, and has worked with Chip, Angel and Nicki Minaj. But it’s the Nigerian-born, U.K.-based music man’s association with Minaj which is the potential game-changer.
Ighile is the first signing to Minaj’s as-yet-unnamed label. And the first single, “So Beautiful,” is the first fruits of their new relationship.
“So Beautiful” is lifted from Ighile’s “Young, Dumb & 21” mixtape, which is on the slate for a 2013 release.
“I just make music for people that want to hear it and don’t know where it will take me,” Ighile tells Billboard.com. “This song is an introduction to my sound, Progressive Urban Pop (P.U.P) or Progressive Afro Pop (P.A.P).”
The clip was filmed in L.A. and directed by Yasha Malekzad (Enrique Iglesias, Usher, Lil Wayne, Pitbull, Dev, Tinchy Stryder, Ludacris) for Jacuzzi films.
Parker is already familiar to fans of Minaj. He featured on the track “Hell Yeah” ft Parker from her November 2012 album release “The ReUp.”
What’s in store for the year ahead? “Putting ideas together for Nicki Minaj’s new album. Hopefully I can make it…it’s going to be a massive one,” Ighile says. There’ll also be a visit to Africa to work with some local musicians.
An 18-year-old Ighile got his first big break back in October 2009 when his co-production of “Oopsy Daisy” for Chipmunk (now known as Chip) reached No. 1 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart.
The rap star insists she has never gone under the knife and that her changing features are all down to dramatic make-up.
The 30-year-old rapper said: “I’ve never had surgery on my face.
“They’ll see contour and they’ll think you had surgery on your nose, no no no, look at RuPaul’s drag race and you’ll see how you can make your nose look any shape you want.
“When people see my makeup they think all types of crazy things that I’m doing to my skin, but it’s makeup.”
However Nicki made no reference to her curvy bum – rumoured to have been given a helping hand from butt implants.
However she did reveal her ambitions to carve out a career as an actress.
The singer has even hired a movie agent but is waiting for the right project to come along.
She previously said: “I would love to act, it just has to be the right project, the right movie.
“I have an agent, and we are looking at a couple of scripts, so we’ll see.”
However, the American Idol judge is adamant she won’t follow in the footsteps of singers such as Beyonce, Christina Aguilera and her fellow judge Mariah Carey by playing a “stereotypical” role as a musician.
She added: “It won’t be nothing stereotypical about a singer.”
A woman who claims Michael Jordan is the father of her son is suing the star for child support, it has been claimed.
Pamela Smith has apparently filed legal documents demanding that the legendary basketball player submit to a paternity test to prove 16-year-old Taj is his son.
The teenager, who uses the surname Jordan, has in the past taken to the internet to insist that the former Chicago Bulls star is his father.
Ms Smith filed a paternity suit in a court in Fulton County, Georgia three weeks ago, according to TMZ.
In it, she claims that she and Mr Jordan had sex in 1995, when he was married to Juanita Vanoy, with whom he has three children.
She says her son Grant Pierce Jay Jordan Reynolds, known as Taj, was born in June 1996.
Ms Smith insists that Mr Jordan is the boy’s father, and argues in the court documents that he should be forced to undergo a paternity test.
The claimant is seeking child support payments and money for Taj’s medical expenses.
She has also asked the judge handling the case to change her son’s last name to Jordan officially.
In a video posted on YouTube last month, Taj said he was Mr Jordan’s son and claimed he was in touch with the star.
Mr Jordan’s representatives declined to comment on Ms Smith’s claims.
This is not the first time he has been the subject of a paternity suit – in 1991, his former lover Karla Knafel claimed the star was the father of her child, but a DNA test proved that this was not the case.
Mr Jordan is considered by many to be the greatest basketball player of all time.
He is now the owner and chairman of the Charlotte Bobcats, and is engaged to marry Yvette Prieto next month.
After recently impressing us with the launch of the world’s fastest four-seat convertible, the 2014 Continental GT Speed, and the remarkable luxury saloon2014 Bentley Flying Spur, the acclaimed British manufacturer of luxury automobiles Bentley Motors for the likes of Bentley Boys now delightfully launches its first luxury fragrance collection, the ‘Bentley for Men’ and the ‘Bentley for Men Intense’. Interestingly, the fragrance range which captures the ‘essence’ of their powerful supercars also brings together the master French crystal maker Lalique and the iconic British car company for the creation of the first limited edition crystal flacon for Bentley, the ‘Lalique for Bentley Crystal Edition’. And this impressive collaboration further allows the transposition of Bentley brand core attributes into ultra-luxury fragrance. However, it’s not new to see noted automakers venturing into luxury fragrance business, as the German automaker Mercedes-Benz in 2011 launched the perfume for mencreated by the renowned perfumer Olivier Cresp of Firmenich, and in 2012 unveiled the fragrance for women, besides Bugatti launched its limited-edition fragrance back in year 2006.
Lalique for Bentley Crystal Edition
The bespoke Lalique for Bentley Crystal Edition is an impressive crystal flacon with the iconic ‘Flying B’ Bentley mascot.
Limited to only 999 examples, the eau de parfum itself, composed by Mylène Alran, from the French perfume house Robertet, is a fitting elixir of fine woody notes and exquisite leather to complement the epicentres of excellence within Bentley’s craftsmanship.
‘Bentley for Men’ and ‘Intense’ range
Created by top French perfumer Nathalie Lorson, from the perfume house Firmenich, the ‘Bentley for Men’ (pictured above) and the high-impact ‘Bentley for Men Intense’ (pictured below) fragrances will be made available at selected perfumeries and department stores from April 2013.
Lozada,37, has been vocal about her growing Christian faith recently and made headlines after ex-husband Chad Johnson physically assaulted her last August one month after they were married.
Still, the reality television star recently opened up to Celebuzz about her desires to let God choose her next husband.
“I still want to be a mother, I still want to have other children, I still want to get married and have a family,” Lozada told Celebuzz recently. “Only this time, instead of me choosing, I’m going to allow God to choose whomever for me.”
The reality star and author spoke about what she is looking for in her future husband.
“I just want a good guy. A family man who wants kids,” Lozada told Celebuzz.. “I don’t want five kids, but one or twins would be great.”
Still, Lozada admitted that it may be too soon to think about marriage seven months after marrying him.
“I’m starting to get to a place where I entertain the idea,” Lozada told Celebuzz. “I still think it’s too soon, but I’m open to it.”
The “Basketball Wives” star did not seem to be upset that she was without a husband on Valentine’s Day, and tweeted about having God’s clarity.
“Happy Valentines Day My Loves. Self-love is the most important type of love and it feels soo good,” Lozada tweeted. “It’s better to be single than in the wrong relationship. Thank God for clarity.”
The reality star spoke about healing from her broken relationship with Johnson on her personal blog last year.
“This is a normal and realistic process for anyone and I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I know God holds it and I’m taking things one day at a time. I appreciate the love from so many of you and right now I’m still working on becoming a better person,” Lozada said on her personal blog. “Chad and I are attending therapy separately, meeting with a Life Coach and trying to figure out how to work on our individual selves and navigate through this entire ordeal.”
The article below is old but this sure has come to pass there is no more yves saint laurent and to be quite honest the new line is ugly as hell it looks like they wanted to get rid of the youth purchasing their clothing, im really pissed. whoever made the decision im sure will see a drastic fall in sales.
After the dust settled from the massive game of Designer Musical Chairs earlier this year (Raf Simons to Dior, Jil Sander to Jil Sander, Hedi Slimane to Yves Saint Laurent, Stefano Pilati to who knows where…), we thought we were done with the major house shake-ups.
But as rumors predicted yesterday, it seems there is yet another big change going on at a major design house: Yves Saint Laurent is dropping the “Yves.” Welcome to the era of Saint Laurent Paris, people.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, Hedi Slimane is looking to push the brand, founded by Yves Saint Laurent himself in 1960, into a more modern, youthful era. The streamlined name would be “Saint Laurent Paris,” although the famous “YSL” logo would remain.
As WWD notes, there is precedent for the name change. Coco Chanel’s house is known simply as “Chanel” and the house of Christian Dior is branded as “Dior” in most places, including on most of the company’s online properties.
But Yves Saint Laurent, some might argue, is a more modern icon, one who only died four years ago. While he was alive he struggled with handing over his house to successors, unhappy with how his heirs, including Tom Ford, re-envisioned his eponymous brand. (Saint Laurent once wrote to Ford, “In 13 minutes on the runway you have destroyed 40 years of my career.”) Given Saint Laurent’s strong attachment to his brand and the stress he endured seeing it transformed, cutting part of his moniker out of the brand name may be deemed insensitive.

I know this will be a hot interview with all 3 ladies giving us the latest with their careers and whats set out for them in the future. If you havent heard SUPA BAD listen below.
3:31 p.m. | Updated The big news this London Fashion Week was supposed to be the return of Tom Ford to the runway, the London debut of L’Wren Scott (complete with a dinner Sunday night at the Café Royale co-hosted by her boyfriend, Mick Jagger), the buzz surrounding such rising stars as Christopher Kane and JW Anderson and the emergence of the young British model Cara Delevingne as “the next Kate Moss.”
But for the thousands of young fans who packed New Oxford Street in central London on Saturday night, there was only one fashion designer who mattered this week: Rihanna.
The pop singer unveiled her first collection for the British retailer River Island, for which the British press has reported she is being paid roughly $1.2 million, at a cavernous club space jammed with revelers, a few curious members of the fashion press and the occasional local celebrity (including Ms. Delevingne, who sat in the front row, dressed in an Adidas hoodie, denim hot pants and thigh-high boots).
This, of course, was not the first dip into the fashion pool for Rihanna; she had already created two collections (largely of T-shirts, jeans and a leather jacket) for Emporio Armani jeans, with Giorgio Armani telling the press, “Rihanna is a great artist.” More recently she told interviewers at the Grammys that she had partly collaborated with Azzedine Alaïa on the custom-designed flowing, crimson gown she wore to the awards ceremony, saying he had showed her several designs before she picked the one she would wear.
On Saturday, as attendees mingled among the heavily female crowd during the hourlong wait for the show to begin — a wait made somewhat easier by the small army of waiters passing out glasses of Champagne — it seemed at times more like a girl’s night out than a fashion show, with much of the overheard conversations being about last night’s date or last week’s breakup and almost no one talking about whether they would make it to Preen the next morning at 9.
As the crowd milled around, clearly interested in what Rihanna would show but perhaps even more interested in the after-party, a black-and-white film, projected on the wall behind the bar, showed on a continuous loop, with Rihanna apparently talking of the inspirations for her fashion line. I say “apparently” because the sound was turned off and you couldn’t hear a word she was saying.
As for that after-party, Rihanna herself was a no-show, hitting the London club scene instead with some friends, an evening that quickly turned into tabloid fodder when a fan threw an energy-drink bottle at her, apparently angry that she was back with Chris Brown.
The runway, a multilevel set of platforms, resembled, appropriately, a concert stage; the models strutted out to the accompaniment of rap songs of which roughly every third word is unpublishable here. The clothes, designed in collaboration with Adam Selman, who has worked with the singer on her tour costumes in the past, were body-hugging and flesh-baring with even the modest cover-ups featuring some elements of see-through design. (You were expecting subtle?)
Mr. Selman told British Vogue that the collection was “urban-inspired, unfussy, with a bit of uptown,” and that it was very much “based on Ri’s style and her mood.”
But he added that there was the occasional creative tension between the two partners. “There were times when I said to her, ‘Ri, you’ve got to trust me on this,’ ” Mr. Selman told a reporter for the magazine’s Web site. “Then she would put her foot down, and I’d have to let it go.”
At the end, Rihanna came out in a form-fitting black minidress with Mr. Selman and flashed a quick, sly $1.2 million smile.
Big Sean is set to launch a new clothing line Aura Gold later this week.
It looks line one of G.O.O.D. Music’s biggest stars is now setting his sights on the world of fashion.
In a recent press release, it was revealed that Big Seanhas officially launched a new fashion and lifestyle brand Aura Gold. The Detroit rapper is set to debut Aura Gold’s new “Finally Famous” line at ProjectMVMNT convention inLas Vegas later this week.
“Launching my own label is a dream come true for me,” he told the press. “Even though I have a lot to learn about fashion and the industry, I do know what I like and the small details that make something stand out to me. I look forward to evolving the line with more colors, fabrications and offerings to show the other dimensions of my style progression over time.”
According to reports, the “Finally Famous” line will feature select designs of t-shirts, hats, pants, sweatshirts and jackets. Vibe also got an exclusive look at some of the emcee’s new clothing items in its upcoming February/March 2013 Style issue.
Aura Gold isn’t Big Sean’s first entry in the world of fashion. Last year, he collaborated with Adidas on a pair of custom Pro Model sneakers in honor of his upcoming sophomore release Hall of Fame: Memoirs of a Detroit Player.
Images of his new collection can be found below courtesy of Vibe.
Drake seemed to really be enjoying himself during All-Star weekend in Houston, TX. He was spotted goofing around with Jay-Z and Beyonce by serving drinks to them. The “Started from the Bottom” rapper was wearing a pair of Saint Laurent Two Tone flannel hoodie jacket ($925) and Saint Laurent high-top sneakers ($575) from the Spring/Summer 2013 Collection.
In the last few years, Ford has made a tentative return to London – one of his several home bases – with a series of exclusive, invitation-only presentations, but today marked the first full-fledged London catwalk show of the Tom Ford brand.
Of course he did it Ford style, in an elegant ‘royal home’ typically used for international diplomatic conferences, not fashion shows. Those with coveted invitations had to wait in the cold and show their passports or other IDs to satisfy royal security requirement before they could be let into the hallowed halls.
Vogue editor Anna Wintour and singer-actor Justin Timberlake – who is currently collaborating with the designer – sat side by side in the front row, with chandeliers and gold-painted ceilings overhead.
Feminine and flattering: Sequins and lace abounded, while jackets offered high neck collars and dramatic shapes
Ford draws a more elegant crowd than many other of the London Fashion Week designers: Many men wore beautifully cut suits and carefully chosen pocket squares, while women wore black outfits set off by exquisite jewels.
Everyone seemed content to sip Laurent Perrier champagne or gin and tonics while Ford let the start of the show slip from late to fashionably late. But, when it began, it was worth waiting for.
Inky black spider-web lace was worked into skirts long and short, with the dark fabric set off by brightly coloured sequined jackets. Elsewhere, the contrast was turned on its head, with a black jacket brought to life by an explosion of vivid sequins stitched in a floral motif on a pair of trousers.
Ford also made use of leopard-printed coats and bright pink fur (faux?) and – in a nod to the 1960s – soft black leather jackets with fringes in the back.
Other outfits emphasised a basic colour palette of black and white in interesting contrasts, playing on a zebra-striped theme.
The outfits were demure without being dull, feminine and flattering without being twee (never a word you’d hear mentined in the same breath as Tom Ford, that’s for sure).
Ford, who keeps homes in London, Los Angeles and Santa Fe, made a brief appearance at the end of the show, wearing one of his signature slim-cut black suits and giving his fans a wave.
The general consensus? London hopes Tom is here to stay.
Confident: Ford was bold in his use of colour and folkloric floral motifs, and used sequins and crystals to create vibrant patterns on silk
Graphic: A monochrome palette ran through the show like a seam, grounding the brights
Making a statement: No one could accuse Tom Ford of being a shrinking violet
Beautiful creatures: Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake attend the Tom Ford show tonight. RIGHT: Man of the moment Tom Ford greets the crowd at the end of his show
