(SL) – Kylie Jenner was spotted with her sister, best friend Jordan and Bella Hadid out in London. They were supporting her boyfriend Travis Scott at his concert.
(SL) – The Kardashian/Jenner are know for borrowing ‘other people’s stuff’ and turning it into their own. But, I don’t know how far they’re going to get trying the estates of Christopher Wallace ‘Notorious BIG’ and Tupac Shakur.
The latest scandal comes in the form $125 shirts featuring the likeness of Biggie and Pac and of course themselves. The garments have received heavy criticism from various people and now Biggie’s mom is calling the sisters out for their blatant disrespect and exploitation.
In the limited vintage collection the Jenners’ faces and the brand’s logo have been printed over the shirts’ original artwork—which includes images of rap artists Tupac and Biggie, plus album art from Metallica, Pink Floyd, and more.
Who told them that it would be a good idea to superimpose their images over the likes of these great artists is beyond me. Countdown to the next lawsuit in 3,2….and ….
(SL) – The Jenner sisters made sure to make their rounds at the Met Gala taking publicity op photos where allowed and posting without caution; even breaking a Met Gala ‘NO SELFIE’ rule.
But it didn’t look like they were the only ones, so no big deal. However, one photo is garnering a lot of attention because after Kylie posted the pic featuring her rumored beau Travis Scott and a host of other black entertainers including Sean puff daddy, diddy Combs, the Hip Hop Mogul re-posted it but cropped them out of it.
It’s understood why. If your posting about black excellence, they certainly don’t fit the criteria…but gosh…it was a bit savage.
I do question why these young ladies felt the need throw their middle fingers up? Was that the cool thing to do? I can’t handle women in $5,000 dresses displaying $2 behavior. So unnecessary and really not that cool. A little bit of class is always needed, especially at the Met Gala. As for the revised pic, Diddy wanted to show some team love and well the only way to do that was to crop them out, right?!
Diddy for the win..
(SL) – As reported by USA Today, The Liberian-born model-blogger banded together with photographer Raffael Dickreuter to launch “Black Mirror,” a project that recreates high-profile ad campaigns by brands including Chanel, Calvin Klein, Guess, Gucci, David Yurman, Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana to highlight the dearth of women of color represented in fashion and the media.
In an emailed statement to USA TODAY, Howard cites the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show as the most recent example of underrepresentation, noting, “you could see the same pattern you can see at New York Fashion Week or any other famous fashion event: Black girls are almost invisible. There is the odd one here and there, but it always feels like an afterthought.”
Or, a performance of diversity as opposed to actual inclusion.
For Howard, who says she’s been turned away by modeling agencies that “already have a black model,” the industry’s routine devaluation of women of color is “bizarre.” “What do you mean you already have 2-4 black models that looks (sic) like me?” Did you say the same thing to the 50-100 white models you already have?”
