• Mail Bombs: Nicki Minaj’s Freaks Video Gold Jeremy Scott Jacket and Alexander McQueen Leggings, Karrueche Tran’s Victoria’s Secret Cheetah Bralet, and Gwen Stefani’s HP Commercial L.A.M.B. Jacquard Pants!

    Hey Bombers and Bombshells!
    I am back in NYC and I can say with confidence: there’s no place like home. Now, I would’ve preferred to come back to glorious weather instead of a snow storm, but it’s New York. You gotta just roll with it.
    At any rate, I haven’t gotten to Mail Bombs in a few weeks, so spent some time on this one.
    Let’s get it crackin!
    First up Sandra writes, “Where can I get the leggings Nicki Minaj wore in the Freaks video with French Montana?”

    Ah yes, Nicki has changed her personal style, but for videos, she’s still goes for tight and titillating! The American Idol judged was styled in a gold jacket from Jeremy Scott’s Spring 2013 collection (see a similar foil print here).

    She said on Twitter that her leggings were Alexander McQueen, though I haven’t been able to find them anywhere. She most likely got her hands on ’em before the rest of the world could. I’ll update this post once they become available!

    Next up, Carrie writes, “I’ve been wanting a bralette like this since I first seen it on Kae.”

    ” I’ve looked everywhere but can’t find the exact one in the picture. All the cheetah bralettes have look cheap/tacky. Can you help me find this one? Pleaseeeee?:-)”
    Karrueche divulged that she got her bralette at Victoria’s Secret. Take a pic from any of these to get the look.

    In another Karrueche Tran Mail Bomb, Lady says, “Wanted to know where I can snatch Kae’s leather sleeve jacket!”

    Lady actually ended up finding her own Mail Bomb, identifying this Nasty Gal Jet Shearling Jacket for $68:

    Not sure if it’s the same, but it’s certainly similar! Get it here.

    Next, Chris Styles types, “After watching an episode of Love and Hip Hop New York, I fell in love with this Biggie Sweatshirt Erica Mena is wearing!”

    ” I did a quick search and found a pic on Necole Bitchie but no info on where I can find it…Help! please :)”

    Yep! Erica was gifted an $80 Biggie Legends Crew Sweatshirt by Invisible Bully. It seems the black version Erica wore is sold out, but the white is still up for grabs:

    If that won’t work, you can get a t-shirt by the brand for $42.

    Insemesit says, “Could you tell me where I could find this jacket that Jennifer Hudson is wearing?”

    The jacket looks like Helmut Lang, though you can get a similar look from a number of retailers. Recreate her airport steeze with these:

    Jamelia writes, “I’ve been scouring the internet for the past few weeks to find the designer of Gwen Stefani’s pants in this commercial. So far, no luck on my end.”

    ” Could you all help me out? Who designed these fabulous pants she’s wearing?”

    It took us a little while to find ’em, but we did! Gwen repped her clothing line in a $330 pair of jacquard black and white pants from L.A.M.B:

    IdefinGlamrUs says, “Hello, I was wondering if you could find out who is the designer of these frames Eva is wearing in this pic. Thank You!”
    Like Basketball Wife Jennifer Williams, Eva is a fan of Fendi frames.

    We’ve actually blogged about Eva wearing these before.

    Search the archives, y’all!

    At any rate, now for some Unsolved Mail Bombs!
    Jenn types, “During a babyshower which Cassie threw for Lola Monroe, Toccarra Jones is pictured wearing a pair of sunglasses. Pleeeeease help if you can.”

    Monique says, “Hey Lala was seen wearing a pair of Jordan bed 11’s she was also wearing a red leather coat which I just love please can you help my find out where she got it or something similar!”

    Bianca types, “I am planning a trip for my boyfriends’ birthday and I would love to wear this outfit pictured on the beautiful, Melissa Forde. Please help me find out which designer she is wearing and how I can get it. “

    Lastly, Dominique writes, “I’ve been looking for this shirt Teyana has on. Any idea of the brand or where it can be bought?”

    I was sure the tank was BBC Ice Cream or Wu-Wear, but I haven’t been able to find it to purchase! If you know, leave a comment or shoot me an e-mail. I’ll updated as tips come in.
    This jet lag is catching up to me, so I’m going to rest for a bit. Stay tuned for more!
    And if your Mail Bomb wasn’t answered, I’m working on it. Check back next week.
