The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Rihanna’s Hairstylist Makes Bank, Kanye West x Giuseppe Zanotti?, and Record Crowds on The Last Days of Alexander McQueen’s Exhibit

• According to the Daily Mail, Rihanna pays her hairstylist Ursula Stephen £2,000 (approx $3,200) a day, which comes up to about $23,000 a week. Rihanna Fenty: stimulating the economy one hair color at a time. (Daily Mail)

• Want to rock a pair of pumps designed by Kanye West? You might soon have the opportunity.  The fashionisto is rumored to be collaborating with Giuseppe Zanotti on a women’s footwear line. Apparently, Yeezy has been putting in hours at the Zanotti factory. The designer says: “Kanye is always here in my factory. In the last three years, he has come here maybe every month and worked with the employees 10 to 12 hours a day. [Kanye] loves learning about shoes, both the design and construction, and we’ve tried to design something together. In a couple of months, he could have his own special collection out.” Every month for three years? Kind of unbelievable. If this is true, these shoes better be on that visionary! (StyleCaster)

• Supermodel Angela Lindvall will replace Heidi Klum as the host of Project Runway’s All-Star season.  No Iman: how disappointing! I longed to hear her hilariously stern voice flatly command; “you’re out, you can leave the runway.” Isaac Mizrahi will fill in for Michael Kors, along with Marie Claire editor-in-chief Joanna Coles in place of Nina Garcia. No word on the fate of dear Tim Gunn. (The Cut)

• The loudest sound echoing through the halls of the MET this weekend was that of  ringing registers. The final two days of the MET’s Alexander McQueen exhibit were crazy! 15,000 people showed up on Saturday, and the line started at 79th street (the museum is at 82nd). Sounds like… a lot of standing and waiting. Glad I went in May! (Fashionista)

Rodarte and Opening Ceremony have teamed up once again for their Fall 2011 collection. Pastels are a bold choice for fall, but this somehow works. What do you think? (StyleCaster)
