The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Janelle Monae Dons A Long Weave in Video for ‘Dance Apocalyptic,’ Kendall and Kylie Jenner Star in Rob Kardashian’s Sock Line Campaign, and Kate Moss Artwork Up For Auction at Christie’s
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

Janelle Monàe  eschews her signature pompadour for-gasp!– a long weave in her new music video for ‘Dance Apocalyptic.’

Chanel‘s Pre-Fall campaign video is a supremely creepy way to sell clothes. Directed  by Karl Lagerfeld, ‘Women Only‘ employs ominous music and haunting whispers to create the feeling that something terrible (and scary) is about to happen to a movie theater full of Chanel-clad models. Starring Cara Delevingne, Lindsay Wixon, Edie Campbell, Soo Joo Park, Xiao Wen Ju, and more, if it doesn’t completely confuse you, Lagerfeld’s new flick will, at the very least, give you the strange feeling that somebody is watching.

Kate Moss will be the focus of a Christie’s auction, set to go down September 25th. Curated by art collector, Gert Elfering, the auction will feature a series of collages, photographs, sculptures, paintings, and more of the iconic supermodel. [Kate] is the subject and inspiration for this collection, but the importance of the present works is in her collaboration with the internationally renowned artists who created them,” explained Elfering. Included in the pieces up for grabs are photographs taken by Mario Testino, Bruce WeberAnnie Liebovitz, and Mario Sorrenti, to name a few. The auction will be open for public viewing at Christie’s London location from September 21 to September 24th, for those who don’t have the pounds to spend on expensive artwork.

Rob Kardashian has tapped younger sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner to appear in the campaign for his sock and legwear range, Arthur George. What do you think of the shot? (Global Grind)



• Urban Outfitters is expanding their retail options in Manhattan with plans to open a new store at 1333 Broadway (at 35th Street). The store, specifically described as a “lifestyle center” will offer “new features never before seen from the brand,” according to Anthony Malkin, president of Malkin Holdings, the company that supervises the 1333 Broadway building. Although reps for Urban Outfitters would not provide details about the project, WWD confirms that the company has already signed the lease on the 56,730 square-foot space. Hmm… I wonder what the folks at Urban Outfitters have up their sleeve with this one? (WWD)



 • The hats of legendary Italian fashion editor Anna Piaggi are the subject of a new exhibition, due to bow during Milan fashion week. Curated by milliner Stephen Jones, “Hat-Ology” will open September 22nd at the Palazzo Morando. (WWD)

    I love that Janelle stays true to herself with that hairstyle, it was refreshing to see a different hairstyle on her. She has such a beautiful face and I’m glad that she tried something different, that song rocks too!

  2. GiGi says:

    Shes such a beautiful girl..I’m glad she switched it up. She’s had that updo for a few years now..Change is mostly always good.

  3. DannielleS says:

    The hair really accentuates her beauty. She is always beautiful, but the other hair was a little distracting. I guess distracting is what she was going for though.

  4. Kitty B. says:

    Janelle Monae looks amazing so happy she switched it up!

    Rob’s Sock line is…ah…different? I wish this Kardashian family would stop trying to make this girl Kylie pop! She’s not popping! Kendell on the other hand has a future in modeling…but Kylie sighs…

  5. Msmimi13 says:

    Rob needs to stop with those socks. Was that all they had left for him, socks?! I can’t.

  6. jeda says:

    I was actually looking forward to Rob’s sock line, but this look really amateur … i can buy these at Bobby’s and Rainbow

  7. Hello says:

    Question why do we assume its a weave could that not just be her natural hair straightened?

  8. tasha says:

    She is a really beautiful girl. Love that she changed it up. i will note she has long hair. Its just pinned up. She wore her hair done for a friends party.

    I dont get Karl at all. Ignores him.

    Dont get Robs suck line. I thought it was for me. I guess he made it for women too so he could tap into his sister market.

  9. stawpit says:

    @Hello That’s what I was wondering about the weave comment. Given that she has a lot hair with that pinup in it’s natural state, I would imagine when straightened it would be that length. I know the same is true for my hair.

  10. EC says:

    Janelle look fabulous. Everyone needs a change and this look is hot! All the models look good except Kylie. She is not giving it like the other 3. She should leave the modeling to Kendall.

  11. KITANA says:

    Like, honestly, she can really wear anything and still look gorgeous. I don’t think this is a full on weave though. Its probably a half wig or even just a clip-on maybe….

  12. Ashley says:

    The one and only thing that is not confusing in that Chanel video is that there is not one Black girl in it smh

  13. Hello says:

    @stawpit right I have natural hair too & we all know it shrinks & doesn’t show it’s true length until its straightened people always assume someone is wearing fake hair & that’s just not always the case I don’t get it everyone doesn’t wear weave so we should stop with the assumptions

  14. Diva says:

    finally something different from Janelle !!! FINALLY !!!!

  15. lanisha jaxon says:

    How about doin sum homework. That’s J’s hair straightend w/ crimps…. Smh, get it rite chick.

  16. Anonymous says:

    Her REAL hair is poppin

  17. itsjustme says:

    @hello, i also wondered why it was assumed to be a weave. anyhoo, janelle is a gorgeous woman.

  18. Anonymous says:

    Janelle Monae is beautiful!

  19. Natalie says:

    I think it’s a weave because it seems to silky to be her natural hair. I’m sure her natural hair is that length, but unless she permed THEN flat-ironed it it wouldn’t of got so silky straight.

  20. Anonymous says:

    @natalie mam you obviously know nothing about natural hair you can straighten natural hair bone straight & it will look “silky” the ignorance is real I see

  21. Anonymous says:

    ^^ There’s a difference between bone straight & silky… You can have bone straight hair (for example relaxed) with out it looking silky. Black women’s hair wether relaxed or natural for the most part isn’t silky.

    I love Janelle Monae! She always seems herself && to be having fun while doing it.
