Rihanna’s Fenty fashion label opens for business in Paris

Rihanna revealed her first Fenty collection in Paris on Wednesday evening. She arrived wearing a blazer as a dress—the white canvas number had exaggerated shoulders and was cinched in at the middle with a built-in corset—paired with strappy going-out heels in gold leather, all from her new label. The mood was boss lady on top, party girl below. This mix of high and low took on menswear inspirations with a feminine twist.

Why Is Kim Kardashian On The Cover Of Vogue’s Camp-Themed Issue?

Kim Kardashian West graces the cover of Vogue magazine's May 2019 issue. The cover lines suggest that the issue will incorporate the Met Gala, happening the first Monday in May. But you'd never guess that this year's theme is "camp" by looking at the cover image. Kardashian is dripping wet in a sheer shirt.
