PLAY IT BY EAR

HAPPY EASTER TO ALL MY RAMPANT READERS.

KHLOÉ KARDASHIAN x ES MAGAZINE

"I NEVER CONSIDERED MYSELF FAT, BUT WHEN I USED TO SHOP WITH MY SISTERS I WAS ALWAYS REALLY SHAMED AND SHUNNED BY SALES ASSISTANTS. I WAS ALWAYS SO EMBARRASSED. CELEBRITY STYLISTS WOULD REFUSE TO WORK WITH ME, THEY SAID THEY DIDN’T DRESS PEOPLE MY SIZE. IT’S SHOCKING, BUT ONCE I LOST WEIGHT, THE SAME PEOPLE WOULD REACH OUT AND BE LIKE, WE WOULD LOVE TO STYLE YOU. I WAS LIKE, SCREW YOU."

COP OF THE WEEK

I'VE MISSED OUT ON PAST RELEASES BUT THIS TIME I MADE DAMN WELL SURE THAT THE AIR MAX 97 SILVER BULLET WOULD FALL RIGHT INTO MY LAP. S/O TO MY PLUG WHO HELD ME PAIR. TEAM WORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK.

FUTURE x BILLBOARD

"IF I’M THE BIGGEST ARTIST IN THE WORLD, COOL, BUT I WANT TO JUST BE ME, I WANT MY MONEY TO BE DIFFERENT. I’M NOT TRYING TO HAVE RAPPER MONEY. MY GOAL IS TO BE ABLE TO GET EVERYTHING FROM THE WORLD THAT I CAN GET."

TBH

NOW YOU'RE SPEAKING MY LANGUAGE.

TRACKSUIT MAFIA

THIS COMFORT ON 100 TWO PIECE IS NO LONGER SAVED FOR SPORTING ACTIVITES. THE HUMBLE TRACKSUIT HAS BEEN GIVEN A SPRINKLE OF LUXE AND HAS BECOME A STAPLE IN EVERY WORKING WOMAN'S WARDROBE. JOG ON LADIES.

STYLE ICON

I WAS CASUALLY SCROLLING THROUGH THE RARE LONDON WEBSITE THE OTHER DAY AND NEARLY FELL OF MY CHAIR WHEN I NOTICED THEY'D USED MY INSTAGRAM SELFIE TO PROMOTE THEIR 'SILVER HIGH SHINE MIDI DRESS'. FLATTERED BUT ALSO SHOCKED THAT THEY DIDN'T HIT ME UP BEFORE SNATCHING THE SHOT. APPARENTLY I'M ALSO A STYLE ICON. I WONDER IF THEY MADE A FEW EXTRA TWENTIES OFF ME? PIMPIN' ALL OVER THE WORLD.

HALIMA ADEN

"A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE THE MISCONCEPTION THAT, AS A MUSLIM WOMAN, I AM SOMEHOW AGAINST WOMEN WEARING BIKINIS. NO, I WANT WOMEN TO FEEL COMFORTABLE AND CONFIDENT IN WHATEVER THEY WEAR. AS MUSLIMS WE JUST NEED MORE POSITIVE STORIES. PERIOD."

BOY MEETS WORLD

STILL REELING OFF THE DRAKE CONCERT ON SUNDAY NIGHT. IT COULD HAVE BEEN ALL THE WINE WE DRANK BUT PAPI'S SET LIST OF NUMBER ONE AFTER NUMBER ONE MADE ME DIZZY WITH DELIGHT. EVEN THOUGH I HAD A SEAT I COULDN'T SIT MY ASS IN IT. GYRATING TO THE BEAT OF HIS GIANT INFLATABLE PLANET IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STAGE, THIS BOY MET THE WORLD AND THE WORLD SAID, IT'S A PLEASURE TO MEET YOU.

THE NEW EDITION STORY

I WAS TOTALLY ENGROSSED IN THE 3 PART BET BIOPIC CHRONICLING NEW EDITION'S INSPIRATIONAL RISE TO FAME FROM YOUNG BOYS IN BOSTON WITH A BIG DREAM, TO BIG MEN IN HOLLYWOOD WITH A STAR ON THE WALK OF FAME. THERE'S ENOUGH CROONING TO TAKE YOU RIGHT THROUGH VALENTINE'S DAY AND PLENTY OF EYE CANDY FOR ALL US CANDY GIRLS.

BEYONCÉ x BELLY

"WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE OUR LOVE AND HAPPINESS. WE HAVE BEEN BLESSED TWO TIMES OVER. WE ARE INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL THAT OUR FAMILY WILL BE GROWING BY TWO, AND WE THANK YOU FOR OUR WELL WISHES."

BUSY

APOLOGIES FOR THE LACK OF CONTACT. LIFE HAPPENED AND I HAD TO MAKE THAT LEMONADE.

LOUIS VUITTON x SUPREME

"YOU CAN’T HAVE THE CONVERSATION OF NEW YORK MENSWEAR WITHOUT SUPREME RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE IT’S SUCH A MASSIVE GLOBAL PHENOMENON. WHEN I WAS AT COLLEGE I USED TO WORK UNPACKING BOXES OF SUPREME AT A COMPANY IN LONDON THAT DISTRIBUTED IT WHEN IT WAS JUST STARTING OUT, SO IT’S SOMETHING I’VE KNOWN ALL ALONG IN MY LIFE. I JUST FEEL THAT THE STRENGTH OF THEIR GRAPHIC VERSUS THE STRENGTH OF THE LOUIS VUITTON GRAPHIC AND THAT KIND OF POP ART FEELING - IT WORKS TOGETHER PERFECTLY."

WORK THE MIDDLE

ROLL YOUR HIPS FOR BABY GIRL'S BIRTHDAY.

FAMILY MATTERS

FOLLOWING KIM'S RETURN TO INSTAGRAM SHE SEEMS TO BE WAY MORE FOCUSED ON FAMILY AS OPPOSE TO FASHION. IT'S ENDEARING. FEELING HER STRAIGHT N SILKY POCAHONTAS HAIR TOO. A DAY IN THE LIFE OF THE YEEZY LOOKS COZY.

CHIXTAPE 4

"IF YOU GREW UP IN THE 90s OR EARLY 2000s, MAKING A MIXTAPE FOR YOUR CRUSH WAS AN ACCEPTABLE FORM OF FLIRTING. THE THEME FOR THIS MIXTAPE BEGINS WITH TWO WOMEN CONVERSING ABOUT TORY LANEZ, ONE OF THEM RECEIVING A CD FROM HIM. SHE PLAYS IT WITH HER FRIEND AND WE’RE TREATED WITH A SAMPLE FROM PRETTY RICKY’S CLASSIC ‘GRIND ON ME’. THIS REIMAGINING, HAS LANEZ GIVING US HIS TAKE ON INTERCOURSE WITH A LADY OVER THE CHOPPED UP PARTS FROM THE SONG. THE THEME CONTINUES AND THE REFERENCES TO GOLDEN OLDIES ARE AS LOUD AND PERVASIVE AS EVER."
