The Most Popular Couple Wearing Upscale Designers: Kanye West In Balmain & Kim Kardashian In Balenciaga

The entertainment industry’s most popular couple (Kanye West and Kim Kardashian) was recently spotted in Cali visiting the children’s Hospital in Los Angeles. The twosome sure was styling on them lames and hoes. Kanye rocked his Nike Air Yeezy 2 “black/solar red” sneakers paired with $1,330 Balmain Biker jeans and a $1,010 Balmain Denim shirt. Yeezy must really like this shirt because he wore it in Paris during the debut of his “Donda” by Kanye West Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection and in December at the Lakers game. This shirt features a faded wash, frayed hem, and pearl covered snap button closures. Kanye West’s girlfriend Kim Kardashian was with him and wore a white shirt, jeans and a BCBG draped front jacket paired with $2,950 Balenciaga Winged Woven Sandals from the Spring/Summer 2012 collection.

Watch My Sneaker: Rihanna Wearing Nike Air Yeezy 2 ‘Black/Solar Red’

This past Thursday (June 28), international superstar Rihanna was spotted leaving her hotel in London. RiRi is in the capital city of England filming her fashion show for Sky Living and working on her new album. RiRi is working in front of the camera as well as behind the scenes for a show which its primary focus is to find a new top designer. The platinum-selling singer told UK’s Telegraph, “I’ve always had a great love of fashion. It’s a constant source of inspiration in my life, and is a big reason why I’ve grown into the person and artist I am today.”

RiRi rocked a pair of Nike Air Yeezy 2 ‘Black/Solar Red’ with a black hoodie, tee-shirt and Adidas track pants. She accessorized her outfit with a Fendi backpack, dark sunglasses, a Brooklyn cap and her favorite $69 Melody Ehsani Queen of the Jungle Necklace. She’s reportedly already enlisted producers David Guetta, DJ Nicky Romero, Calvin Harris and songwriter Ne-Yo for the disc.

New Interview: A$AP Rocky Retracts Album Release Date, Talks His Favorite Rappers & Upcoming Documentary

Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky caused a stir on the internet last week when he announced that his debut album, entitled LongLiveA$AP drops September 11. Fans have to wait a couple of weeks later because Rocky confirmed to The Source that he was “joking on the radio” when he made that announcement. I like A$AP Rocky a lot but things like this only proves that new artists lacks artist development and needs media training. In this interview, Rocky also talks about Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q being his favorite rappers, hooking up with Lana Del Ray, what people can expect from his upcoming documentary and much more.
