The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: New Developments in the Aaliyah / Zendaya Biopic, North West Celebrates First Birthday With Kidchella Themed Party, and Kilo Kish To Collaborate With Kitsuné


  • Remember that Aaliyah biopic that had you guys hot and bothered over Zendaya’s casting (in case you care, Zendaya’s dad told TMZ that since it’s going to be filmed in the summer, Zendaya will “darken up” for the role)– well, apparently that biopic will at least partially detail the pop diva’s relationship with R. Kelly. To jog your memory, the pair denied being together at first but it eventually came to light that they’d gotten married when Aaliyah was only 15. “Aaliyah’s personal and professional relationship with R. Kelly will be explored with care in the film as we set out to depict her life with the utmost respect,” said executive producer Debra Martin Chase. Wonder how Aaliyah’s family feels about this development? (Page Six)


  • You probably don’t remember your first birthday, and neither will North West, but Kimye had to have a lavish gathering nonetheless! The celebrity couple threw a party dubbed Kidchella for their first born, complete with a Ferris wheel, teepees, and performances by Kendall and Kylie, along with Jaden Smith. Sure beats my friend’s 1 year birthday party, which was held in their lavish living room. Hmmm… just how will they top this for year 2? (NY Daily)


  • Kilo Kish is teaming up with French electronic music record label and fashion brand Kitsuné.  While hanging out at a Marc by Marc Jacobs event this weekend in LA, the young DJ dished on the burgeoning collaboration. “I really like a lot of their stuff because it’s preppy and cute and young, so I asked them if they would maybe like to do a few pieces together, and they were down for it, so we’re just in the beginning stages,” said Kish.  “I’m thinking travel materials because my [EP] is called ‘Across’ and it’s about moving from New York to L.A. and driving cross-country, so we’re going to do some fun things together like totes, cellphone cases, little fun stuff.” Adorable. Expect a release around July 8th. (WWD)
  • Diane von Furstenberg’s Google Glasses are here! Head over to Net-A-Porter to have your pick of one of five different colors of the frame–and pick up a detachable sunglass shade while you’re at it. (Apple Insider)
