• A new film based on the life of Josephine Baker is in the works, and according to the Daily Mail, Rihanna is in the running to portray the Jazz Age icon. Do you think Ms. Robyn Fenty is a good candidate for the role? (Daily Mail)


Tory Burch is the latest designer to dip into the lucrative beauty biz with the launch of a brand new fragrance, limited edition color cosmetics line, and collection of bath and body products. Burch hooked up with Estée Lauder to create a signature scent with a  “tomboy meets feminine” feel, punctuated with notes of vetiver and tuberose.

The items will be available for presale online come September 6th, with the full launch scheduled for September 26th. Color cosmetics ($32-$48) will be available in Tory Burch stores  and on her website only. You can pick up the bath products ($50-$80) and fragrance ($62- $110) at Burch’s boutiques, website, 31 Bloomingdales stores, and nine Holt Renfrew shops.

• Of course the Kardashian‘s first runway show for their Kardashian Kollection label is a little gimmicky– we wouldn’t have it any other way! The reality sisters three posted a snap of the stage design for their upcoming show for Australia Fashion Week, which includes a giant Eiffel Tower to complement the show’s “international” theme. We’ll just assume that they’ve got more giant sculptures of famous national landmarks to illustrate the inspiration. (Kim Kardashian’s Blog)

  1. Awww, Little Nori! I’m gonna give Rihanna a big fat no for the portrayal of Josephine Baker, sure she’ll look great in all of the costumes, but chick can’t act. Next candidate, please! J Hud looks great as Princess Tiana!

  2. Deetra La'Rue says:

    Wow! She is too precious, and she looks just like Kim!

  3. Bee. says:

    Baby North is beyond adorable! She def takes after her dad, cause she looks like she’s thinkin “Hey! No photos!” Lol CUUTTEE!!

    Rih and whoever is casting the Josephine Baker film can have a stadium of seats! There are plenty of African-American ACTRESSES that can portray Ms. Baker. Thanks, but no thanks!

  4. mi manning says:

    North West is too cute!!!!
    Why do we need another film on Josephine Baker? Like we really need to see a melanated woman (if y’all knew better, y’all would NEVER call yourself Black or African (American) again…see Black’s Law Dictionary) half-naked in a banana skirt, insinuating jungle bunny/primate behavior in this day and age? I’d like to see a movie on Sophia Stewart…the melanated/ Moor woman who wrote the original manuscript to “The Matrix” and ‘Terminator”! They never speak of creative women like that! They only want to do movies on women that have been used and abused and wound up on drugs, a broken heart, and/or left with nothing! All they want you to do is focus on their beauty. We don’t need that energy anymore!

  5. Nelly says:

    The baby is so pretty! She looks a lot like Kim, but I’m sure like Blue Ivy, more traits of her father will show up as she gets older. Sweet photo.:-)

  6. Shanice says:

    Didn’t we already have a biopic on Josephine Baker? Lynn Whitfield portrayed her. No thanks Rihanna. North is cute, I expected her to be.

  7. Empress says:

    She’s mixed, of course she’s beautiful!

  8. Enigma says:

    North is a cutie looking like her mother with her daddy cheeks. JHud looks nice. Riri as Josephine is not a good look.

  9. Amber says:

    Awww Nori is too cute and yes i do see Kim and Kayne in her. She already looks like is is 4 months old.

    I don’t agree with Rihanna portraying Josephine Baker. I actually love the film that is already out on Josephine baker. i don’t feel that Rihanna is going to take the role serious, I mean I definitely don’t take her serious.

  10. A says:

    North is Bombshell of the Day!

  11. sammi says:

    North is beautiful, the perfect mix of Kim and Kanye.

  12. binks says:

    What does being mixed have to do with being beautiful…smh North is cute just like any other baby. As for Rihanna as JB…I say negative. And though I love J-hud I think Anika Rose should have done the shoot.

  13. Nori is just the cutest!

  14. Deetra La'Rue says:

    @Binks, my sentiments exactly! I don’t know why some people think because you are mixed you are automatically beautiful!

  15. Sandra says:

    I love Riri but no thanks. Seriously! I don’t care for a movie about her life but if they do how about casting a newcomer, a actress that has been working on a craft for years and who is ready for her big break.

    Nori looks just like her dad. Since when being of mixed race equals to pretty?

  16. Natasha says:

    “Rihanna To Play Josephine Baker In Upcoming Biopic?” <– I actually made an angry face in reading that sentence. Nothing against Rihanna per se. However, a serious actress should take this part and give it the gravitas this woman's life deserves.

  17. Kahalia says:

    Did anybody else think Kanye’s voice sounded weird in the clip?

    Also I have biracial children and am always offended when people offer that mixed kids are always cute. Ridiculous.
    ps My kids are cute because of their genes, race mixing aside.

  18. ANON00 says:

    No to Rihoe! Yes to North West! shante u stay !

  19. ANON00 says:

    She can’t even sing her own music u think she can portray a jazz icon/legend ?! Bye

  20. Jei says:

    The baby is cute..on a SN, idk who he’s turned into but that ain’t the real Kanye West in that video clip. I’m not for the facade. He may in fact be in love, but don’t lose yourself in the process. Rihanna && whoever cast her need to have several seats. Why do we need another? If it was a must, I agree with @Sandra on giving the role to a newcomer ready for their big break. A real actress. Oh how these companies love to capitalize off of her. All attention ain’t good attention.

  21. Empress says:

    Let me rephrase that. Anything mixed with black is beautiful! Problem?

  22. Anonymous says:

    lmfaoo why kanye tryna speak proper, boy u from south side chicago stop it. prior to being with kim you never spoke like that, i guess she is teaching him a thing or two…hmm

  23. lolani says:

    you never know his mother was highly educted and well spoken so maybe this is him and the “hood” kanye is played up to fit into the music industry (i.e. 2chainz and plies)

  24. The truth says:

    Kanye is not a hoodrat. His mom was educated and he went to college (and dropped out). North is adorable.

  25. KBS says:

    No to Rihanna portraying anyone but Rihanna. Stay in your lane and respect the art of acting like you do with singing <– insert sarcasm.

    @Empress you tried it twice and failed both times. Can you identify every mixed person? Because all mixed black people have light skin, good hair and pretty eyes, right? For every beautiful mixed (or mono-race) person there are probably 20 f'd up ones. Tameka Cottle aka Tiny, Rain Pryor, Miguel, J Cole, Cameron Diaz, Tiger woods, Drake (yea I said Drake) and that funny looking man at work are a few that come to mind. Stop thinking like a house ni&&er slave.

  26. Gogo says:

    @Mi Manning I get your point but Josephine Baker was not abused nor did she end up in the gutter. She lived out her live happily with her adopted rainbow family.

    Nori is a cutie!

  27. Yvette says:

    North is the cutest little baby! those cheeks aww bless her.

  28. Jay Are says:

    I’m sorry but I couldn’t help but laugh at Kanye’s dialect during this interview. I KNOW he was fakin’! LOL

    And no mam Rihanna better not play my mom! (My name is also Josephine) A role that would be more appropriate for her is playing a model that does not speak. Please let actresses act and “bad gals” be bad!

  29. &. says:

    Baby North is adorable. I don’t think there should be another Josephine Baker movie. The Josephine Baker story is good on its own. Lynn Whitfield did a great job.

    Why can’t Hollywood come up with original ideas instead of constantly making remakes. There are other black stars who made an impact on the industry that there are no movies about. For example, Grace Jones and others who the public hasn’t heard off yet.

  30. Peaches says:

    Baby North is adorable. Looks just like her dad.

    Riri not a good act for the part, stay looking fly…. singing and designing your clothing.

  31. Diva says:

    I can see Tika Sumpter, Naya Rivera, or the Black Brit actress from the tv show Revenge, (Ashley something )as Josephine Baker more so than that horrid Rih Rih who can neither sing, dance or act.

  32. iheartkeya says:

    @KBS What do you mean? J.Cole & Drake (most times) are cute. lol. Anyways North is so beautiful; she looks like Kim with Kanye’s cheeks. I love Rih but idk about the Josephine Baker role. I think she should play a bond girl or something instead. And I noticed the change in Kanye’s voice too *shrugs*
