Def Jam rapper Jadakiss recently posed with media personality Free. He rocked a $550 Moncler Tib Puffer Vest layered over a grey hoodie with a skully and jeans. This vest was trendy a few years ago. I remember when it was selling out left-to-right at Saks and Bloomindale’s.

Jada’s gloss-finished down Moncler vest features a front snap and hidden zip closure, vertical zip pockets and logo patch on the chest. You can purchase this vest at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, or SSENSE.

Photogs caught international pop singer Rihanna arriving at her hotel in NYC after celebrating her brother Rorrey Fenty’s birthday at Finale. The multi-platinum Def Jam recording artist wore a mini-white dress layered under a blue quilted coat paired with $2,025 Giuseppe Zanotti Cutout Leather Knee-High Boots which are designed with sleek cutouts for a skin-baring effect. They also feature a leather upper, point toe, back zip, leather lining and sole and padded insole. You can purchase these boots at Giuseppe Zanotti or at Saks.

These are the hottest boots this season. Back in September, I posted Lala Anthony wearing these boots during her appearance on BET’s ‘106 & Park‘. Lala opted for a rockstar inspired look. She paired her boots with an $1,785 Pierre Balmain Leather Biker Jacket layered over a white tee-shirt with cutoff denim daisy dukes shorts. Lala’s black leather Pierre Balmain jacket features a zip front closure, hidden side zip pockets, front flap pocket with button closure and a belted waist. It’s available at Forward by Elyse Walker.
