2016 MTV VMAs | Rihanna's Performance Style PLUS Drake!!

Rihanna completely went ALL out for her FOUR performances during the MTV VMAs. I mean, it should've just been named Rihanna's VMAs considering she was being honored for the most important award that night, the video Vanguard Award, also known as the Lifetime Achievement Award, not only honoring her extreme artistic body of work and 10+ years of being in the music industry but also her effect on the MTV culture or WORLD as a whole. 

From her taking us through a journey of her career, performing some of her best hits, and styling in outfits that were totally stylish and definitely screamed RIHANNA, she gave her viewers a performance we won't forget. 

Check out her outfits below...

1. HBA (Hood By Air), Performance 1

2016 MTV VMAs | Best Dressed Women

The 2016 VMAs was filled with an array of different styles, colors, and moods; with celebrities creating their own mark on the white carpet. You had Queen Bey, Blue Ivy, and their whole crew strolling in together, wearing beautifully crafted dresses in shades of creams, blacks, and browns and garnished in feathers, sequins, and lace. You had hot celebs like Cassie, rocking no shirt under her blazer, and runway models showing up ready for a party, rocking colorful ensembles from head to toe.

Kendall Jenner | The IT Girl: Highlighting Kendall's Hottest Looks

People like to discredit the handwork of this supermodel, mainly because her fame came after her superstar sister, Kim Kardashian West, but Kendall landing the September 2016 Vogue cover is a silent reminder that she's more than the shadow of the Kardashians. Looking up to the legend, Cindy Crawford, Kendall's modeling is not just a hobby for her,  it's her career, her LIFE, and she hopes it lasts just as long as Cindy's, or even longer. 

Not only is Kendall known for walking the runway for many high fashion designers like, Chanel, Gucci, and Fendi to name a few, she's also known for her off-duty model, street style that everyone tries to emulate in the best way possible. 

I can't even deny, I LOVE her style. She knows how to mix and match the high and lows, like sweaters and denim shirts (my fave pairing) and slip dresses with t-shirts (also my favorite pairing).

Below are my favorite looks from her...

Look 1: The Highs and Lows

This style is not hard to accomplish however if you are going to rock this like Kendall, you need to forget all the rules of fashion or all clothing rules in general. A lot of people don't get the "jacket with shorts" style but just like Kendall wears the look above, she balances it out with wearing thigh high heels or a long coat or jacket to help cover the legs. 

But who cares if you choose to walk out the house with a jacket and short shorts, DO YOU boo, DO YOU!

Look 2: Pajama Inspired Outfits in the Streets

Kendall knows how to make this style work, keeping it street (or airport) appropriate by mixing either a lace bralette or silk slip dress with other simple pieces like a plain tee or denim jeans.

Here's more style inspiration below

Look 3: Gym Chic

Not your usually gym attire, Kendall adds a feminine edge to your typical black tights. If you style these sporty pieces properly then you can get a pass on not hitting the gym later.

P.S. Keep a look out for Kendall's first September issue covering Vogue of 2016!

Cover Girl | FKA Twigs on Elle US August 2016 Issue

The definition of a rebel. An artist setting the bar (and she may not even realize or care), proving to the world that real, genuine, artist still do exist. I've never felt more in touch or in love with an artist such as FKA Twigs.

The issue is set to drop July 12th in select cities and July 19th nationwide.

Lizzy Goodman got the exclusive interview with Twigs and found out that a lot of her gets missed from the press: "she's a lot of fun."  Read the full post here

[Excerpts from Elle.com] 

Why she puts her work into the world without warning and won't discuss any project until it's completely finished:

"People talk too much," she says, shrugging. "Everyone's always chatting and not delivering. I'm the opposite. I like to just deliver

image.jpg

Why she refuses to use the word "fan":

To her, it feels "derogative," so she opts instead to call them "people who like my music" or "people interested in me as an artist." "They don't influence what I make," she says, "but they have a role in us all coming together and creating something genuine."
