Tyra Banks finally took her weave out, along with much of her hair.
The executive producer and host of “America’s Next Top Model” chopped off her tresses to reveal a short pixie cut. She debuted the look Friday on her various social media accounts along with the word, “Snip.”
Kanye West is looking for the same amount of respect in the fashion world that he demands in the entertainment field – but he won’t get it from Kelly Cutrone.
“I’m not into his fashion thing,” the fashion publicist bluntly told People following his Adidas collection at NY Fashion Week. “I think he’s fine as a rapper. I think he’s a joke as a fashion designer.”
Cutrone, a judge on “America’s Next Top Model,” thinks Kim Kardashian’s husband, 37, should just stick to music.
“I just think that you should stay focused at what you’re good at. Just because you’re a good rapper doesn’t mean you’re going to be a good fashion designer. I mean, we’ve seen that over and over,” she added before pointing out that Diddy’s Sean John was a successful brand but few coveted the clothes.
And when asked about West’s new Yeezy sneakers that droves of people stood in line for, Cutrone wasn’t impressed.
“I mean, it’s not, he’s not legit. Have you seen the product?” she said. “Didn’t he have his own line in London, which was a disaster that he spent $10 million to do, that no one wore?”
If Adidas’ plan was to build a big buzz for the just released Kanye WestYeezy Boostsneakers, they should consider their job well done.
Between 3000 and 9000 pairs of the shoes (depending on which source you believe) quickly sold out after hitting retail outlets on Saturday, February 14.
Kanye has promised that eventually production of the sneakers will catch up with demand and preached patience to sneaker heads. If that’s the case, why not just roll out 200,000 pairs to begin with?
“It’s because of the hype by not putting much quantity out there,” DJ Jack Da Ripper, a self professed sneaker collector, told CNN Money. “If everyone wants it they should just produce more, but they don’t. They only put a limited quantity out there.”
The lack of available product has created a market for people who are willing to pay$2,000 for a pair on eBay.
Kanye West showcased his first Adidas clothing collection and debuted new song from forthcoming album during his Yeezy debut at New York Fashion Week on Thursday (Feb. 12) in front of fashion’s elite and celebrities including Beyoncé, Jay Z, Rihanna,Justin Bieber, Diddy, Big Sean and more.
The crowd was also treated to a brand new Kanye song titled “Wolves” featuring Sia andVic Mensa. The track produced by The Cashmere Cat and Sinjin Hawke is the first song off Kanye’s upcoming album.
After a bit of a wait we finally get a look at Kanye West’s Adidas Yeezy Boost sneakers.
According to GQ, only 3000 pairs will be sold at $350 apiece. The website called yeezy.supply, has a countdown clock indicating a countdown to February 12. The date coincides with the beginning of New York Fashion Week, where West is expected to officially unveil the shoes.
With only 3000 pairs being made available to the public demand will be high. Hopefully people will be civilized when they go on sale. We don’t need or want to see the kind of madness associated with the sale of Michael Jordan retro sneakers.
