The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Kanye West Bare Chested in Vogue, NYFW Most Diverse It’s Been in Ages, and See Diane Von Furstenberg’s Range for Gap Kids
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

Kanye West is so serious about fashion, it makes him want to take his shirt off. The half-naked rapper and womenswear enthusiast is featured in this month’s US Vogue, alongside Givenchy Creative Director Riccardo Tisci. As for Yeezy? I… I’m not sure how his bare chest makes me feel… (Complex)

• Apparently, New York Fashion Week was the most diverse it’s been in several years. While (duh) the vast majority of models who walked were white (clocking in at 79.9%), Asian models represented the largest minority group (8.8%), with black models coming in at a close second (8.0%). I’m sure the fashion world is patting itself on the back, but I’m keeping my hands to myself for now. Out of the 4,561 opportunities to use a model, designers chose to use a white model 3,641 times, opting for models of color only 920 times.  (Jezebel)

Diane Von Furstenberg designed a range for Gap Kids, which will be in stores come March 15th! Peep the video teaser for the collection, which is as adorable as you would expect. And if you were wondering, yes, I will be trying to squeeze myself into the largest sizes– this line is ca-ute! (Styleite)

Vivienne Westwood is really not feeling today’s sartorial mood. “People have never looked so ugly as they do today, regarding their dress,” she said yesterday, after her Red Label show in London. “We are so conformist, nobody is thinking. I’m a fashion designer and people think ‘what do I know?’ but I’m talking about all this disposable crap. So I’m saying buy less, choose well, make it last… In history people dressed much better than we do. If you saw Queen Elizabeth it would be amazing, she came from another planet. She was so attractive in what she was wearing.” (Vogue UK)

These peeptoe booties come in four colorways, and mark the brand’s second designer collaboration this year, with a third to be launched this month. (United Nude)

    I can’t wait to get my hands on this issue :) Thanks for the scoop FBD

  2. Tracy says:

    That girl on his lap look very uncomfortable. Could it be that she’s just hungry or is it his hand on her tiny bum?

  3. I love those United Nude shoes. I’d love them all.
    The DVF for GapKids collection makes me wish I had a little girl. I may have to get a few pieces for my nieces.

  4. Mads says:

    Gap Kids comes up big so there’s potential for me to buy the biggest size and diet my way in.
    LOL – at Vix being the most useless Spice Girl. Too true!

  5. Caribbelle says:

    Vicky B, knows what works for her and how to look good. kudos to her.
    It always amazes me that many designers say that there are limited models of color yet there are always tons of girls running around trying to get a career in the industry. …smh, but congrats to the lovely ladies that found work this go round.

  6. sun.kissed says:

    LOL @ the model on Kanye’s lap. She looks very uncomfortable—wonder why they chose this pic? LOL @ Victoria being the most useless spice girl…

  7. Vanessa says:

    Victoria Beckham sure has. I am at awe on how she totally flipped her image. Hard to even remember she was a spice girl.

  8. B. says:

    The “model” on Kanye’s lap is British singer Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine. She often looks uncomfortable because it’s part of her image – the reluctant starlet. But she sure can sing!

    I love Vivenne Westwood – she never shies away from saying what she believes.

    Also, send Kanye to my door ASAP. I love the man.

  9. Diva says:

    why do they have Kanye with his shirt off and in chains looking like a modern day Toby/Kunta Kente…… I sooooooooooo disapprove.
