Nicki Minaj Shoots Visual In An $863 Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Apache Bomber Jacket, $685 Alexander McQueen Stained Glass Leggings & $1,995 Christian Louboutin Spike Wars Ankle Booties

nickilobby1

Yesterday YMCMB’s multi-platinum recording artist Nicki Minaj returned home to her Queens, New York neighborhood to film a visual; with the assistant of Fabolous, Meek Mill, SB, DJ Khaled, Ace Hood and Mavado. For the shoot, Minaj styled an $863 fuchsia & black Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Apache Bomber Jacket and $685 Alexander McQueen Stained Glass Leggings with $1,995 Christian Louboutin Spike Wars Ankle Bootie (similar to the ones below but in all black). Her outfit was cool, but I saw better though. Any thoughts?

Minaj’s bomber jacket is detailed with a ribbed trim and it features all-over graphic lettered print. Purchase it at Zappos. These black and purple leggings feature an elasticated skinny fit leg and a stained glass print. They’re available at Farfetch. The Christian Louboutin booties are completed with leather, spikes and the brand’s signature red sole. Get them at Neiman Marcus.

NBA Player Kevin Durant For The Hollywood Reporter

29cover_durant_lores_html

NBA player Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder graces the cover of The Hollywood Reporter’s The Sports Issue‘. On the cover and for the fashion spread, the D.C. native and OKC forward sported a Givenchy tee-shirt and camo pants. He completed his outfit with a Mitchell & Ness Oakland Raiders cap and Air Jordan sneakers. Inside, he talks about signing to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports. Below are some excerpts:

The Oklahoma City Thunder star, 24, has nabbed the regular-season scoring title three times, won Olympic gold in London and memorably squared off against LeBron James‘ Miami Heat in the 2012 Finals (the series’ decisive game pulled in 18.4 million viewers on ABC).

In 2010, the Washington, D.C., native signed a five-year contract extension with the Thunder reportedly worth $86 million, and he’s already preparing for future negotiations: In June, Durant became the first basketball player to sign with Jay Z‘s agency Roc Nation Sports.

“I thought it would be cool to have a group that’s focused on helping me out and helping me grow off the court,” he tells THR, adding, “My mind-set is: Play the game the right way, you win, you show people what kind of player you are, then the endorsements or the off-the-court stuff will come.” (He now has contracts with Sprint, Gatorade, sports memorabilia company Panini, General Electric, game developer 2K Sports and Nike, with earnings adding up to an estimated $13 million a year.)

Durant singled out the star-studded Staples Center as one of his favorite places to play; it’s where he met Denzel Washington and “told him I was a big fan.” Asked if he contemplates life post-NBA, Durant says: “Yeah, I’ve been thinking about it. The years have been going past so quickly.”

Nas Spotted Wearing A HSTRY Denim Style Jacket In Las Vegas

nasvegas2

Rapper Nas is in Las Vegas partying and drinking Hennessy. He was spotted wearing a HSTRY Denim Style Jacket. This jacket features two large front pockets on the chest area and six buttons. HSTRY was designed in collaboration with menswear blogger Grungy Gentleman and is affiliated with Nas; he has a stake in the company. The “Life Is Good” rapper first collection will debut this Fall 2013 and is inspired by the leather streetswear/Hip-Hop trend that is currently going on. The collection will consist of plaid shirts, leather vests and shirts, bomber jackets, sweaters, motorcycle jackets, peacoats and other accessories. I usually don’t co-sign rappers clothing lines, but it is my opinion to say that this line is actually pretty dope.
