Kanye West Thinks $5,000 Sweaters Are Ridiculous

It seems there isn’t a day that goes by without Kanye West saying or doing something to garner attention. Today in Yeezy news, the rapper becomes a class equality crusader. 

West hit up Oxford University to address students during a lecture. Besides proclamations that racism is dead and that North West’s toys can only be of the “inspirational” sort (whatever that means to an 18 month old), West did have some great ideas about the fashion world and how it needs to be more egalitarian. The rapper talked about how much he despises class distinctions and how they influence the world of consumerism. In Kanye’s world, it shouldn’t matter if you have $4 dollars or $400,000 dollars – you should have access to quality. “Clothing should be like food. There should never be a $5,000 sweater. You know what should cost $5,000? A car should be $5,000. And you know who should work on the car? The people that work on the $500,000 cars,” he said. “All the best talent in the world needs to work for the people. And I am so f*****g serious about this concept that I will stand in front of anyone and fight for it. Because I was 14 and middle class. I know what it felt like to not get what I have.”

And it seems like Yeezy, who Madonna calls a “beautiful mess,” is following through on his crusade to break class barriers. Before hitting Oxford to make his speech, West paid a visit to the Carnaby Street Adidas Store in London to help hand out free pairs of his Yeezy Boost sneaker. At least he’s working on that ego like he said.

U.K. ELLE is the latest April issue to drop on our forums and we’re pleasantly surprised to see Michelle Williams grace the cover, making for an interesting subject among the usual set of recycled cover stars.

Shot by Kerry Hallihan, Michelle is captured in the studio and exclusively wears Vuitton throughout her feature.

Forum members raced to the thread to see ELLE‘s latest installment and couldn’t wait to voice their praise. “I love Michelle and am thrilled to see her on a cover again!” Handbag Queen raved, getting us off on a high note.

“I love this! I like how they’ve managed to portray her looking cool and fresh instead of that typically pretty girl aesthetic,” added Chanelcouture09.

Also full of enthusiasm was kokobombon: “I think that the color palette makes it very eye-catching. I like the styling and LOVE Michelle.”

Forum member gazebo agreed, “I love everything about it. She looks super fresh and cool.” ELLE has certainly won us over with this one.

MyNameIs shared the same sentiments and echoed, “Love it. Agree with most, this looks cool and fresh. I feel like it’s been a while since we’ve seen her on a cover.”

“Michelle is not one of those girls who always book covers, so I welcome this. I’m really bored with this LV look, but at least it suits her,” Benn98 posted.

Will you be rushing to the newsstands to collect ELLE‘s April issue? Join the discussion here.

Was Cate Blanchett’s ‘Cinderella’ Premiere Look Totally Boring?

She might be playing the evil stepmother in Disney’s upcoming Cinderella remake, but there was nothing sinister or courageous about Cate Blanchett’s outfit for the film’s Hollywood premiere on Sunday, March 1.

The Australian actress kept it really minimal and classic in a custom Céline outfit, with a crew-neck white long-sleeve top tucked into a deep-navy maxi skirt. This simple ensemble would’ve been a total bore without the two-tone pendant necklace, just like her necklace-centric 2015 Oscars look, considering her straight side-parted hair and clean makeup didn’t even try and make a statement.

Despite the simplicity of it all, Cate did charm us with the chic-sophistication which she seems to have down pat. It oozed elegance and all-round classic appeal, just like Cate herself, but we did get kind of sleepy just looking at this.

Naomi Watts is Sportscraft’s New Ambassador

Last year Sportscraft looked to eight ambassadors to celebrate its 100-year milestone in the industry. For Autumn 2015, however, the Australian lifestyle brand has signed on just one: Naomi Watts.

This is one of the most fitting partnerships we’ve ever seen to date, and the 46-year-old actress thinks so too. “Sportscraft represents all the things that are a part of me: a working woman, a mother, someone who wants to look classic and well put together,” she said in a behind-the-scenes video.

Shot by Carter Smith on a picturesque beach down under, Naomi models a mix of elegant and sophisticated ensembles which the respected retailer is so well known for. Think soft-pink and creamy turtlenecks teamed with beige or crisp-white roll-up pants for a timeless look that suits Naomi perfectly. (more…)
