tristian1

NBA player Tristan Thompson of the Cleveland Cavaliers shows his love for fashion designer Marcelo Burlon once again. He last wore the Marcelo Burlon x The Webster tee-shirt here. This time around, he sat at a table and had breakfast with his mother and Daniel. His shirt of choice was a $178 Marcelo Burlon County Of Milan ‘Moon’ Snake Print Tee-Shirt which he paired with Nike basketball shorts. This shirt is available at Farfetch.

Marcelo Burlon’s tees are one of the hottest trends this summer. His tee-shirts feature geometric patterns, large pixieated prints and contrasting bold/neutral colors. Marcelo’s designs are a nod of his Argentinean roots.

Nicki Minaj Covers Marie Claire’s August Issue In Upscale Designers

minaj10f-2-web1

Nicki Minaj covers the August 2013 issue of Marie Claire. For this issue, the multi-platinum international diva was shot by famed photographer Satoshi Saikusa. She gets glammed in a catsuit, various dresses and shoes by upscale designers including Just Cavalli, Bess, Nicholas Kirkwood, and LaQuan Smith. Inside, Minaj gives advice and talks about what pisses her off the most during her interview. This wasn’t your average interview. The questions were taken directly from Minaj’s fans/followers on Twitter. This issue hits newsstands July 16th. Below are some highlights and photos:

On what she would like young women to get out of and learn from her music:

Don’t lose the fun side of you, the part of you that fantasized and had a great imagination, but don’t ever get complacent because there’s always someone gunning to take your spot. You’ve got to work like it’s your first day on the job every day. That’s what I do: Work hard, laugh later. I just don’t want people to think that you can get this any other way. You can’t get it with a pretty little smile. You have to put the work in, and that goes for anything you want to do.”

On what pisses her off the most:

People who don’t own up to their mistakes. They’ll make every excuse in the book, as opposed to just saying, ‘Damn, yeah, I f**ked up.‘”

On one day leaving music behind and making a transition into acting:

I at least want to do three more albums. If I can do that, I’ll feel complete. One day, when I start getting a couple gray hairs, maybe it will all be only acting.”

angelabet1

Media personality and entrepreneuress Angela Simmons continues her 106 & Park co-hosting duties. Last week, I reported that Angela will serve as 106 & Parks co-host ONLY for the remaining of the summer. Alongside Bow Wow, Angela recently co-hosted the show in a $150 Channa Karasi (Unisex “Avatar” Tee) which she paired with black tights and sandals. This colorful graphic chiffon top features a printed material throughout, sheer sleeves, and side zippers with gold hardware. I am so glad that Angela is co-hosting the show. Having her on 106 & Park means more fashion, style and beauty. Bow Wow is also doing a great job himself. Best wishes!
