I have been style crushing on Rasheeda Frost (of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta) for a while now. I love anyone who can mix the high end with the low end, and she does so flawlessly. There’s something very alluring about a person who isn’t dressed in one designer from head to toe. I find that very lazy for some reason, especially when that designer has not cosigned you as their muse. For example, it makes perfect sense for Rihanna to wear Dior from head to toe, because she is the face of Dior, and I can only assume they are footing the bill for her looks. I am still annoyed; however, that Young Dro professes his affinity for Ralph Lauren often, yet Ralph will never acknowledge his existence. Rasheeda wears pieces from her own store Pressed, and pairs them with designer pieces. I have not visited her store, so I cannot attest to the quality of her products, but I love her Instagram style posts. I typically find the whole “I’m really into fashion” story line on reality television very played out. Every season of every reality show you can count on someone having a trash ass “clothing line” or opening a poor excuse for a boutique. Can we credit Sheree Whitfield as the pioneer of this now common farce? I can buy into Rasheeda’s plot line though, because the proof is in the post.
Everyone went crazy for Kendall Jenner’s 21st birthday party dress. She credited Paris Hilton as her inspiration for the look, which is funny because I could swear Paris doesn’t eff with Kim. But hey all is fair in fashion, right? I actually loved both of her birthday looks (including the Julien Macdonald jumpsuit) but can we please get into the designer of her $9,000 Swarovski crystal-encrusted dress? According to Popsugar, Kuwaiti designer Antoine Salameh teamed up with long time stylist of the family, Monica Rose to create the bespoke piece. I admonish you to check out some of his other designs, because they are stunning!
I had the pleasure of randomly running into sibling singing duo Chloe and Halle in the Standard Hotel one day this past Summer. They are just as sweet and gorgeous as they appear, and I absolutely love their style. They just scream Black Girl Magic with their energy and talent. These looks by Bishme R. Cromartie are age appropriate and fly as hell.
