The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Show Up to Stephane Rolland’s Couture Show an Hour Late, American Apparel Taps ‘Advanced’ Model for Latest Ads, and Selena Gomez to Launch Nail Polish Range
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

• Fashion shows never start on time, but  today’s Stephane Rolland couture show in Paris got off to a particularly late start– an hour to be exact. Why? Because everyone was waiting on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to arrive! The couple was so late to the show, Rolland was forced to start without them! Fortunately, the pair was able to slip in during the finale to take in all the looks they felt they were too important to see on time.  (Fashionista)


• Ladies, start making your mental shopping lists! ASOS has released their fall lookbook… just as we were starting to get comfortable in our sundresses! (Fabsugar)


• On top of launching her new biannual C.R., Carine Roitfeld continues to collect coins with her styling gigs. The former Vogue Paris editrix styled three covers for V magazine’s “Youthquake” issue. What do you think of this one? (Styleite)


American Apparel‘s models are usually young, nubile-bodied hipsters, but for their latest ads, the brand decided to go for a different look. Enter ‘Jacky,’ a mature gal with mile-long gray tresses, posing for the brand’s ‘Advanced’ basics. Thankfully, Jacky’s fully clothed in this campaign, but what would an American Apparel ad be without the obligatory crotch shot? (Fashionista)


• The ever-adorable Selena Gomez is the latest celebrity to get a nail polish line. The actress inked a deal with Nicole O.P.I., the same brand that produced beau Justin Bieber‘s lacquer range a few years ago. There’s no details on when it’s set to drop, but we’ll keep you posted!

  1. Kimye are seriously everywhere… like can we pretty please have one day on Fashion Bomb without them lol….. her dress looks amazeballs though!


  2. Brenda says:

    I love Kim’s dress.

  3. soon2Bmrs says:

    Work Kimmy!!!!

    P.S. I missed FBD!! Can yall believe my job tried to websense everything??? SMH….but prayer works!! lol

  4. Camillia says:

    Love this dress!

  5. Mrs windy City says:

    Just ignant K & K…. yes ignant…..

  6. Marsha D says:

    I’mma need that lady to close her legs so we dont see her two-toned crotch….*shivers*

  7. Marsha D says:

    And what is with all the black and white?? for Kim. K.

  8. LaTasha says:

    I may be in the minority but I don’t like this dress on Kim. It’s a cute dress but ruffles don’t work for her. The body language between her and Kanye is hilarious. Yeah, this relationship’s real..side eye. And, the…eh, more mature lady modeling for American Apparel, it would be greatly appreciated if she posed a different way. Greatly appreciated.

  9. misha says:

    No one likes to see an elderly woman expressing her sexuality/ taking “sexy and promiscuous” pictures,
    but Ima just let all yall know, that when u reach her age your sex drive and/or want to be seen as attractive/sexual/etc. will not just all of a sudden disappear.
    so just let the woman be.

    perpetuating that the only woman worthy is a young woman.

  10. Meeks says:

    Is the a gossip blog? Why so much commentary? Just stick to the fashions unless you don’t know who the designer is so you get like mediatakeout!!

  11. Jihan says:

    @Meeks: please indicate where and how exactly I didn’t “stick to the fashions” in this post? This entire post is about fashion! If you want news presented with absolutely no editorializing, maybe you should stop reading fashion blogs altogether? Because everybody does it.

    Having a VOICE is kind of encouraged (I would know since I wrote the linked Fashionista post about Kimye????). It’s something you learn when you work in the industry.

    Women’s Wear Daily is a good resource if you want no commentary at all. Hope that helps.

  12. T1K says:

    Why is everybody jumping on Jihan lately! Sheesh lol… Keep up the good work Jihan!

  13. Is it me or has Kims look been toned down since they became an item ??? Less eye make etc

  14. Nisa says:

    @Jihan….I have noticed that you are a bit sensitive when being critiqued. Telling us that K&K were late to a fashion show was not sticking to the fashion. Advising us what they were wearing while showing up late may have hit the mark a little closer. Especialy since most of the comments (which you did not respond or comment to) were inquiring about Kim K’s dress. Only commenting because I have seen before where you respond to a reader in a sort of ‘get off the site if you don’t like how a write- neck rolling’ response which is not professionally cool sis! I was a bit offended by your response to Meeks in that it came off as abrasive and confronting. She does have a right to her option as well and should not be suggested to go to another site just because she did not like your article. Your article alone does not speak for the content of FBD nor should you. And this is my opinion because I love this site!

  15. Nisa says:

    @ Jihan… Telling us that K&K were late was not about fashion but telling us what they were wearing may have been closer to the mark. Especially since most of the comments (of which you chose not to respond or comment to) where about Kim’s dress. You are a bit sensitive about criticism on your articles as I have seen previously. Try taking it graciously and not in a ‘you don’t have to be on this site – neck rolling’ response to patrons of this site. Just like your article does not speak for the entire content of FBD, neither should you by suggesting someone not view this site any longer. I love this site and was offended by your comment and lack of professionalism.

  16. Nisa says:

    @ Jihan…How about taking criticism a little more graciously and respond to the fashion inquiries about Kim’s dress. Not cool advising a patron of your site to ‘go somewhere else’ because they commented on your article. As a ‘journalist/blogger’ you should have a thicker skin and be more professional.

  17. makeeasweet says:

    jihan comments are cool,when she not making snarky remarks .i notice the fashion bomb like to post alot about kim and kanye while gossiping and bashing their relationship at the same time.

  18. Claire says:

    In Jihan’s defense with the Kimye story/commentary: this is a News breakdown.
    So unlike other posts that may tell you what someone is wearing, or ask you if you like it or not, these types of posts are dedicated to telling you what may be going on in the fashion world. Since we’re an urban site, telling you what’s going on with Kanye and Kim in regards to a couture show is newsworthy. A blog is supposed to have an opinion, and Jihan has one.
    Regarding the design of Kim’s dress….we’re getting to it. But we also don’t want to overrun this site with posts about Kimye (believe it or not). Keep an eye peeled for it in this Week in Chic or in Mail Bombs.

  19. MEME says:

    Kumye is so rude and tacky for showing up late. They need not be invited to any other shows.

  20. Kahalia says:

    @Claire, thanks for the response, very classy and informative.

  21. Anonymous says:

    Hey Jihan, I like your commentary. Just know that for each person who makes a negative comment, there’s another person that thinks you’re doing a great job, even if they don’t feel the need to give unwanted critique.

  22. Crystal says:

    were they in the show? if not, who cares if they were late. the fact that kim had on a dress hand picked by the designer to wear to his show would’ve been more appropriate commentary for a fashion blog. spin it however you please.

  23. DanniGurl says:

    Ummmm I don’t know if you guys with the negative comments towards Jihan actually pay attention to the title of this post… It says THE FASHION BOMB NEWS BREAKDOWN. Which means this post is about current events circling the fashion world. I’m not understanding how this isn’t clear to you. smh

Which means this post is about current events circling the fashion world. I don’t understand why this isn’t clear enough smh. If you want to read a post about pure fashion then skip over FBD’s news breakdown post. simple.

  25. Reicie says:

    YAWWWNN…that’s how I feel about Kimye…I watched KUWTK and I have to say I’m more of fan of Kris Jenner’s fits then KiKi’s as of late…Can we see some Kris Jenner please…and Jihan tell those who have negative comments about your commentary to go pee up a rope!

  26. Tam says:

    Ugggh, I wish some of you would stop being so damn sensitive. This is nothing different than I have seen in The fashion Bomb New Breakdown or the “This week in Chic” segments. It’s not that serious and I don’t think Jihan did anything “wrong”. Hell, if the Meeks (or anyone else) don’t like it, then they can find a blog that suits their tastes.
    That’s all (Kanye Shrug)

  27. Yasmin says:

    What I find particularly amusing is why people feel they have the right to tell someone else how to run their BLOG. If you feel your opinions are that important, you should really create your own fashion site the way you see fit.

  28. Vanessa says:

    Selena Gomez is very adorable with that pink dress :D
