Ciara Continues Her NYFW Rounds


Ciara continues to appear at various NYFW festivities. Yesterday, Monday (September 9), Cici was photo’d in a Bernhard Willhelm Dress from the brand’s Fall 2013 collection paired with $2,645 Christian Louboutin Monicarina Thigh High Leather Boots. Honestly, I like this look. Her orange lipstick matches the orange in her dress. Cici’s boots are available at Saks and Neiman Marcus.




In the pics below, Cici changed from her dress and slipped into a KYE Men’s Tank and Jullian Davis skirt paired with the same Christian Louboutin boots.

Naomi Campbell Walked At The DVF Show; Joined Iman & Bethann Hardison In Calling Out Designers For Racism


International supermodel Naomi Campbell is still killing the game! All eyes were on her during the Diane von Furstenberg show at The Theatre at Lincoln Center this past Sunday (September 8). Campbell closed out the show with a bang! She werk the runway!


Campbell also joined supermodel Iman and activist Bethann Hardison in calling out some the top fashion designers in the nation for the a lack of diversity on the runway. During a recent taping of GMA, Campbell was joined by supermodel Iman and activist Bethann Hardison and they called out Donna Karan, Calvin Klein and Armani for using “one or no models of color” in their fall shows.  And they’re calling it a “racist act.”

“I don’t like it, and I say it. “I say, ‘Where’s the others?’ I’m very outspoken, as we know. The statistics, it’s really shocking. Heartbreaking. Your body and beauty, it doesn’t matter what color you are. If you’ve got the right talent, you should be there having the opportunity to do the job,” Campbell told ABC News. 

“There were more black models working then than it is happening in 2013. There is a time when silence is not acceptable at all. And if the conversation cannot be had publicly in our industry, then inherently there is something wrong with the industry, said Iman

“I think they’re ignorant and they’re arrogant, and I think it’s not even about racism. I think it’s a sense of laziness and they’ve told themselves a story,”  said Hardison.

On the positive side, Diane von Furstenberg and Tom Ford were praised. “He has diversity because he sees the beauty in diversity,” Iman said about Tom Ford.

Derrick Rose For SLAM Magazine; “My Only Goal Is To Win A Championship”


NBA player Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls is back and he’s covering the upcoming issue of SLAM magazine. Stay tuned to YDBR for more photos and quotes from SLAM’s exclusive interview with D. Rose.

This is such a dope cover! D. Rose is my second favorite NBA player (Carmelo Anthony is my favorite). I honestly want to see D. Rose win a championship because he deserves it. I just think that Rose needs more help because he is not able to increase his teammate’s level of play like LeBron James and Rajon Rondo. The Bulls needs another power player,” said Don Bleek.
