Currently Obsessed With: $825 Giuseppe Zanotti Zipped Leather High Top Sneakers

I am obsessed with these $825 Giuseppe Zanotti Zipped Leather High Top Sneakers. The camo colorway is what really caught my eyes. These kicks feature a gold-plated strap on the front, a gold zipper on the sides & back and a black sole. With these kicks, for some reason I will wear a pair of ripped dirty denim jeans and a brown or camo green top. I will complete my outfit with a black strap gold-plated “H” Hermes belt. Are you obsessed with these sneakers and how would you wear them?

Business mogul and cosmetics brand owner Keyshia Ka’oir was spotted doing some shopping at upscale fashion stores Versace and Neiman Marcus in Bal Harbour. For her shopping trip, the KAIOR brand owner styled in a pair of Christian Louboutin Thigh High Lace Up Boots paired with a red top and black jeans. Ka’oir accessorized her outfit with red sunglasses and a classic oversized Chanel bag. I respect a hard-working educated woman. Keyshia turned her 15 minutes of fame into a multi-million dollar empire. Her cosmetics bring in millions annually. What is your opinion on her outfit?

Is Kim Kardashian Hurting Her Boyfriend Kanye West Career?

kimye19

In all honestly, I am tired of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West as a couple. I truly believe that she is ruining his career and making him look bad in the eyes of the general public. Kanye seems to be so lovesick over her. According to the New York Daily News , she is hurting his career.

West’s majorly successful career as a rapper survived interrupting Taylor Swift at the VMAs and insulting a sitting President during a Hurricane Katrina telethon, as he had a hit with his next album, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart.

But a source tells Confidenti@l that West’s popularity is waning and he has become tainted, with too many appearances on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” pictures in the celebrity weeklies and a girlfriend unwelcome in the world of high fashion. Once gracing the pages of VMAN and GQ, his face is now splattered all over whatever Kardashian is promoting.

“His personal life is overpowering his music,” an industry source says. “Every time he plays, people are wondering if Kim is going to be there. It’s not a good thing for him, especially if he wants to be taken seriously.” Kardashian is also affecting West’s income. The rapper was offered several opportunities to host New Year’s Eve parties in Vegas and Miami — but only if he would bring Kardashian. West declined the offers. “Kanye was actually offended by the offers,” says the source.

In the beginning of their relationship, West tried to put his foot down when it came to appearing on the Kardashian family’s shows. “He made it clear to her he doesn’t want to be on her show, but Kim gets upset so he caves in,” adds the source. Sales for West’s upcoming show at Revel in Atlantic City are “not close to being sold out,” says one ticket broker. But the latest sign the public is turning against West was when a massive portion of the audience walked out during his performance at the Dec. 12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at Madison Square Garden — and collectively dissed his kilt.

“Literally half the audience got up to go to the bathroom and it was the talk of the men’s room,” one attendee told Confidenti@l’s Marianne Garvey. West seems to be savvy about his haters and plans on restructuring his team soon. “He has been meeting with top-level music executives seeking advice,” says the source. “He’s not happy with the direction things have been going.”

So what or who made you love fashion as a teen?

“As a teen I was in and out of foster care; so having the best fashion was something that seemed unattainable. I didn’t win Best Dressed, but I understood at an early age I couldn’t afford certain kinds of clothing when I was growing up. But, what I do remember about my mother was that she loved nice things. At times, when we did get clothes; we would get them from a second hand store. And she always kept us clean and extremely polished.

What designers can you not live without?
“I think this may be sort of obvious, and a little birdie might have let you know… all things CHANEL. I am very partial to their clothes because CoCo Chanel was an Orphan. I can relate to that. She didn’t have parents to raise her, but look at what she’s overcome. Her story reminds me of mine. She had humble beginnings but Chanel is the Queen of Fashion, all of their pieces are classy and timeless!

What designer would you want to collaborate with on a collection? Would it be high end or price friendly?

“I would love to work with the designers of J. Crew. Their pieces are simply stunning and they have a good mix of everything. Our collection would be what I call “Fashion Affordable.” Nice pieces, for an affordable price, with great style, trend but quality material. There would be something for everyone. We all deserve a piece of Marlo.”

How many handbags do you have?

“Now that is a tough question. I haven’t counted, but I do know too many for sure … actually, I take that back; a girl can never have too many bags”!

What is the most you have ever spent on a bag or was gifted?

“I am always working on my etiquette, lol and a lady never tells prices unless you want to buy one yourself. However, my crocodile Hermes Birkin is my most expensive handbag”!
