Enjoying The Rich Life: More Pictures Of Rihanna & Friends Vacaying On A Yacht In Porto Cervo & Capri, Italy

Rihanna is still enjoying the rich life as she is currently vacaying across the pond. She took a break from music to spend some quality time with her girlfriends (Jennifer, Melissa and Capricorn). Earlier in the week, the girls were spotted Louis Vuitton shopping, riding jet skis and relaxing on a yacht in Porto Cervo (an Italian seaside resort in Northern Sardinia). The other day, they partied it up on a yacht in Capri, Italy (an island in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Gulf of Naples in the Campania region of Italy). New pictures were released of the girls shopping at some upscale boutiques including Versace, Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu. They were also spotted at the waterpark and riding jet skis. I know they’re having the time of their lives. Peep the pictures below:

Mixing Rapping & Fashion Together: French Montana Styles GQ Staff In Versace



Most of us heard of French Montana through the street music that he puts out but he is now becoming a prominent figure in the fashion industry with his creative and over the top trends. I wouldn’t label Montana a style icon but I do think he is a very stylish rapper. The silk Versace scarfs, shirts, mink coats, stuffed bear head and fur vest that Montana wore in the past was an eye-catcher and caught our attention.  This Bronx native made a recent trip to GQ magazine headquarters in Manhattan. While there, he offered to school the staff on as well as style them in Versace. He also talked about his obsession for brand. Read below, courtesy of GQ.

When did you become obsessed with Versace?

As soon as my money got right enough to buy Versace [laughs]. I have been a fan of Versace for so long, watching people like Biggie, Puff, Jay-Z. I’ve been collecting them for a while now.

Most of them are silk, bright pink or yellow, have flowers and angels on them…


But they’re still super “Hip-hop.” Why?

Rappers make something hip-hop. Like when Biggie wore the yellow one, the one that I wore for Summer Jam, he made it hip-hop. And when he wore the Coogi sweater, he made that hip-hop. Whatever rappers wear is cool to people.

You pay homage to Biggie a lot but how would you classify your style?

I like colorful stuff. I like wearing stuff that nobody is wearing. That’s why I wear the bear hat. I’ll wear the whole mink. You wear the animal, but you don’t wear the head. I’m wearing the head this time around. It’s just like how I took the silk shirt game to another level and went and got the scarves—looked like King Jaffe Joffer out there. You know?

What would you tell someone who wants to get into the Versace game?

I give the best advice and buy dumb shit. Like somebody will make money and they’ll be like, “Yo, man. I don’t know what to do.” I’ll be like, “Man, go buy some real estate.” Go open up a liquor store because everybody loves to drink. Then I turn around and buy a Rolls Royce Ghost. I just want to spend $30,000 at Versace. I just bought a Maserati. (laughs)

Do you think that the silk Versace shirts and the scarves wrapped around will ever be a huge trend? Will it ever make the pages of GQ?

I guarantee it will. You give it a couple of months.

A couple months?

Yeah, give it a couple months.

So, like the December issue of GQ?

Um, I would say like the beginning of next year.

Watch Her Shoes: Emily B Wearing $895 Giuseppe Zanotti Bow Platform Sandals

Earlier in the week, reality star and fashion stylist Emily B was spotted leaving the Global Grind office in Manhattan. During her visit to Uncle Rush online publication, Emily wore a pair of $895 Giuseppe Zanotti bow detail platform sandals paired with a black skirt and an orange print blouse. These sandals are very popular! June Ambrose and Angela Simmons wore the exact same pair that Emily had on, back in the spring. Emily also wore these shoes in a purple colorway to the New York Knicks game a couple of months ago. Do you like Emily’s outfit?

All Glammed-Up: Nicole Scherzinger In A White Sleeveless Blouse, Harem Pants & Gold Snakeskin Pumps

Singer and TV host Nicole Scherzinger was all glammed-up across the pond in Liverpool. While handling judging duties at the X-Factor Bootcamp in England, Scherzinger wore a white chiffon blouse, harem pants and gold snakeskin pumps. Honestly, I don’t know much about Scherzinger. After the Pussycat Dolls break-up, I think people lost interested in the girls. In my opinion, they were better as a group. Do you have any thoughts on Scherzinger outfit?
