I remember when I discovered Chioma Nnadi. I had just read a piece she’d written & fell in love with her eloquence. Then I googled her and fell in love with her style. I have selfishly tried to keep her all to myself (& just the American bloggers) but I think, I ought to share her brilliance. So here goes …
As a fashion writer for Vogue, it’s obvious that her style has some haute couture influences and that being front-row in the world of fashion ensures that this eclectically self-styled wordsmith is always impeccably dressed.
What has me crushing on Chioma is that she isn’t just a vapid clothes mannequin: she studied English and French literature at England’s Manchester University. She is gorgeous, well-read, a great writer, everything I’d like to be when I grow up. That is why she is my Girl Crush.
Would you wear this belt? For the love of fashion …
Yes? No? Maybe?
First YSL copies Christian Louboutin & now Kim Kardashian is being Doppelgängered. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Kim doesn’t think so.
US clothing brand Old Navy are using a Kim Kardashian lookalike in their new ad campaign. And now the 30-year-old socialite is suing the clothing giant and their parent company The Gap, for approximately $15 – $20 million.
The ‘Super C-U-T-E’ music-video inspired campaign video, has become a web viral hit. It has so far had 1.7 million hits online. In the video, Molinaro is the spitting image of Kim, with her hair and make-up styled to look just like the reality star.
If that isn’t bad enough, a certain Bush rumour is adding fuel to the fire. Melissa Molinaro, Kardashian’s copycat, is said to be currently dating 26-year-old NFL player, and Kim’s ex Reggie Bush.
Kim filed her lawsuit against Old Navy in Los Angeles today. She claims the company are using the double in order to make people think she is associated with the label. She is suing the company for “the unauthorised use of Kardashian’s name, likeness, identity, and persona.”
A statement from Kim’s legal reps reads: “Old Navy launched a multimedia advertising campaign that misappropriates Kardashian’s likeness in the form of a celebrity look-alike. Her identity and persona are valuable. When her intellectual property rights are violated, she intends to enforce them.”
I personally think Kim’s over reacting. You’ve seen the pics, you decide.
Picture everything you know and love about Versace; the prints, flamboyant colours, sensual cuts, gold details, leather & glamour. And think of everything you love about H&M; affordable, good quality clothing.
Ladies, are your heads spinning yet?
Donatella Versace and H&M announced they’re collaboration and I’m literally doing my happy dance as I type this.
Versace for H&M! I DIE!
