The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Lyndsey Scott, Betty Adewole, and more Pose for V Magazine, Gisele Bundchen Covers Brazilian Vogue’s September Issue, and Christian Louboutin Makes 8-Inch Pointe Shoes
By The Fashion Bomb Staff


Betty Adewole, Lyndsey Scott, Sedene Blake, Kinee Diouf , Bonnie Chen and Marlena look lovely in stripes for V Magazine’s January 2011 issue. (Beauty is Diverse)


• Poor kid! A child model closing the Smalto runway show during men’s fashion week in Paris cried mini model tears all the way down the catwalk. How avant-garde. (Fashionista)

Kim Kardashian‘s wedding dress will be designed by Vera Wang, and she will wear custom heels from Christian Louboutin. So basically, Kim Kardashian has stolen all of our wedding day outfit plans. I bet the soles on those Louboutins will be blue, too– just like how I want. Why, that rich little so and so! (Styleite)

• Since there are absolutely no eligible beautiful black people models in Brazil to cover the ever-important September issue of Vogue Brazil, Gisele Bundchen fills this void with four different covers for the glossy. Good for you, Gisele, we know how much you desperately need the work. (Fashion Gone Rogue)

• Are websites like GILT and Rue LaLa hurting the luxury fashion industry? The Wall Street Journal seems to think so: “Due to a surge in sample-sale websites like Gilt Groupe, the cachet once associated with owning a name-brand designer has been significantly diluted; getting your hands on a Marc Jacobs bag is easier than it’s ever been. This, combined with a post-recession wariness of conspicuous logo-flaunting and an eco-fueled desire for small-batch, low-impact authenticity, may be shifting the nature of luxury. It’s no longer about who made your dress, but at what out-of-the-way dusty market you found it. Call it the Eat, Pray, Love-ization of fashion.” So, we’re just replacing one symbol of privilege (a Marc Jacobs purse) with another (an expensive trip to Marrakesh)? In conclusion, you will never be in style if you’re poor. (WSJ)

• To raise money for the English National Ballet, Christian Louboutin has created a pair of eight-inch heels mimicking the shape of a pointe shoe. If you are wondering who would wear these, Beyoncé already rocked similar shoes in her video for “Green Light” because she is amazing and perfect. Mystery solved. (Grazia)

    I really love stripes especially in the summer & fall season. To comment on the Vogue Brazil cover issue it is such a shame that a country like Brazil w/ the most Black population outside of Africa cannot hire ethnic models for their spread. But instead they are obsessed w/ this eurocentric beauty. smh

  2. MsA says:

    Jihan is awesome thus far!

  3. MsA says:

    Secondly- whenever I think of Brazil, I envision a country chock full of Afro-descendants (the most outside of Africa) in a variety of beautiful shades from deep chocolate to high yellow, and indigenous tribes. I don’t ever think of white ppl. Shame.

  4. Anna says:

    Love your style of writing!

  5. loverly says:

    I love these news breakdowns. The tone is just perfect. You’re pretty funny, Jihan.

    Those shoes are absolutely insane.

  6. yusufswifee says:

    Jihan – you are funny. and I just can’t the those CL’s…more proof that he hates women.

  7. zimbabwechic says:

    Jihan you make me laugh every morning, love these posts. Christian should put on his shoes and walk in them and stand in them for at least 5 hours.

  8. addikted2fashion says:

    all of these celebs go to vera/lhuillier/etc. and CL for their wedding day. love them, but i’d love to see somebody do something completely different! but, i wouldnt expect “different” from kim k. just sayin.

    CL needs to a reality check. 8 inches? Really dude? Just stop.

  9. saliana says:

  11. zimbabwechic says:

  12. saliana says:

  13. saliana says:

    @ j-marie, you are not a nerd, just amazing :)

  20. ad the crying boy:

    This unfortunate incident occurred when one Epsilon child got mixed up with the rest of Alphas and Betas.

  21. Jessica says:

    SMH at WSJ for this article. Good fashion is and very well should be attainable for everyone. Not just the elite.

  22. Sticky-n-Sweet says:

    I Am Hurt- Would an Epsilon child even know he was amongst Alphas and Betas if they were all wearing the same color? Things that make ya go hmmm…of course the Alphas would know though.

  23. bb says:

    “Good for you, Gisele, we know how much you desperately need the work. ” LMAO

  24. [...] a turquoise Chanel nail polish in a music video sold out the shade.” Who knew being poor (never in style), superficial, and celeb-obsessed would start a trend! [...]
