Fash, Crash, and Burn: Lil' Wayne's BIG RED FUZZY UGGS

Some say Lil' Wayne is just being Lil' Wayne. I just say Wayne lost his mind; that's exactly why he's in my 'Fash, Crash, and Burn' category for those FUZZY UGGS he wore with his Trukfit clothing. The only thing that looked good on Wayne was his red Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. Even the guy next to Wayne is better-dressed; those Jordan sneakers can't fail, though.

I guess Lil' Wayne is determined to be a bad fashion egg with each passing week.

Famed Photographer Annie Leibovitz Shoots Gap Hong Kong Ad Ft. Pharrell Williams

There's just something about photographer Annie Leibovitz's work. She just seems to effortlessly capture the essence of a moment without making anything seem 'staged'.

Check out Pharrell Williams of N.E.R.D. doing a Gap Hong Kong ad, which was shot by Leibovitz. Pharrell has his usual dressed-down, never ragged, 'I'm Just Me' - kind of look. He wears the red Gap hoodie, faded jeans, and his customized boots.

...And there's Great Annie in the middle. What BIG FEET you have! Ok movin' on...

Sneaker of the Day: Christian Louboutin '20 Ans' Red Sneakers

Check these out, the new Christian Louboutin '20 Ans' red sneakers. I like the wording (you can see 'MIKA' and 'BOY' in it, don't know the connection but it's still cool) and I especially love RED sneakers. Red sneakers always provide a POP to otherwise basic clothing.

Also check the embellished crystal blue Louboutins in the top left corner of the pic.

The Kardashian Family Meets W/ The Audience; Discusses The Upcoming 'Keep Up With The Kardashians' ; Check Their Individual Styles

Back with the Kardashian Klan! Kim took a brief break from boyfriend Kanye West as she joined sisters Kourtney and Khloe, and mother Kris Jenner, at the E! Upfront event in New York yesterday

This family is quite the case study. I would like to figure out how does the Kardashian family have such 'staying power' over all the reality stars who seem to dwindle from the spotlight. Check out the four women above as they discuss with an New York audience their newest season of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians,' which renewed its lease for three more years, $40 MILLION.

Also check out their individual style from left to right. Kourtney is pregnant wearing her LBD (little black dress) with detailing on the bottom, and accessorized with yellow chunk necklace and neon pink heels (not shown). Khloe wears a black, asymmetrical hem dress. Matriarch Kris Jenner wears a bodycon dress to accentuate her curves, and Kim wears a black and white lampshade dress with black strappy sandals.

Accessories mean everything! While Kourtney paired her black dress with neon pink heels, Kim opted for black strappy sandals

Family matters: Khloe and husband Lamar Odom posed up with her brother Rob Kardashian inside the event

Sex appeal: Kim spiced up the look with skin-tight black leggings and cut-out stilettos

Kim had a different look, but kept the sandals (earlier in the day)

The Art Of The Sublime In Rihanna's 'Where Have You Been' Music Video And Comparison To Beyonce's 'Run The World (Girls)'

Well, after waiting and waiting, Rihanna's 'Where Have You Been' music video has dropped. It has been anticipated to be somewhat tribal.. and TRIBAL was all up and through this video. I also couldn't help that the ambiance of the dance number resembled Beyonce's 'Run The World (Girls)', but nevertheless, these videos are in their own zone.

Rihanna adds her flavor by emerging from the water in ink-black hair, perfectly aiming for the camera, as if she's an otherworldly, Stargate-inspired girl looking and hunting for her 'love'. The other cultural looks brings about an international vibe, suggesting that the video can be related to every nationality. Beyonce's 'Run The World' is in a class by itself; it's almost as if no other copied version can ever top Beyonce's dance-in-the-sand routine. Rihanna comes pretty close, though.

Forming the EYE.... uhhh... several times that happened in the video. Colors and dance routines were good; I especially could see one of these looks being produced by Vivienne Westwood or any designer with a crazy flair of cultural style.

What's your take on it?

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Together, Wearing Leather Jeans

Wow, could this be the new supercouple? And Kim moves on rather quickly, doesn't she? Anyway, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were spotted stepping out of Kanye's silver Maybach, wearing different variations of LEATHER JEANS!

Uhh.. leather jeans for guys? Only Kanye. Now they do look like wax jeans, but I looked closer at the material and it's actually sueded and faded leather. He paired this with a blue-green velvet blazer and tan Timberlands. Not really feeling the tan ones, black would probably be better. But then again, hey... it's Kanye.

Awkward pic of Kanye... Kim looks great in white blouse/blazer, leather pants, and Christian Louboutin Un Boot Heels.
