Kanye West Coons for Fashion Elite, still Slammed By Fashion Week Creator
This is what happens when you coon and buffoon and try and impress a group of people who will never like you no matter what you do.
Kanye West debuted his Adidas Originals collection last week in Manhattan, and the reviews have been decidedly mixed. But the rapper-designer’s harshest critic could be New York Fashion Week creator Fern Mallis. “I’m kind of over Kanye,” she recently told Page Six. “I mean, I’m not a fan of his music, and the attitude and the agenda is not my style.” Now West has responded to Mallis’ criticisms via Twitter – using a zen-like tone.

Label whores beware. If you don’t know any of this stuff you might be living under a rock or never have logged onto TMZ because this is their daily fare for several years. This guy who put together this video together, obviously has an axe to grind against the rap community and materialism based on his tonality and sarcasm throughout but I will concede he makes some valid points. Take a look for yourself and draw your own conclusions as to if you think what he says is the truth.
Erykah Badu Named New Face of GIVENCHY’s Spring Campaign
Definitely a great choice. This should also be a serious wake-up call to those designer brands that it’s time and inevitable that they will have to add much more models of color. The fact that white models are used pretty much exclusively is garnering more and more backlash and their own customers will speak out and demand to see models who look like them. Change happens slow but this is at least a bold move by Riccardo Tisci .

R&B singer Erykah Badu has been signed as the face of Givenchy’s spring 2014 campaign in reaction to a fashion industry tendency to use predominantly white models on the runway.
