Kim Kardashian is making money Claire Leeson is running into debt to look like her.

Well, well, well, just when you thought you’ve heard it all about Kim Kardashian and her over the top life. Hmmmm!!!! London resident Claire Leeson has become one of the many people to cash in her savings in order to like a celebrity, finding herself in $30,000 worth of debt which she spent on plastic surgery and cosmetic enhancements get the same look as her Keeping Up With the Kardashians idol.
So why would someone ever do this?*Confused
A 24-year-old Leeson told This Morning, "I was told every day that I was the ‘ugliest thing alive' and I should ‘kill myself.'" "When I left school friends would tell me that I had a resemblance to Kim.  So, I watched [Keeping Up With the Kardashians] and realized I had the same amount of siblings and that we have the same kind of arguments and things going on. I thought she was so beautiful and I really wanted to be like her."
So she started changing her look to appear more like Kim.  She has had a boob job, teeth whitening, hair extensions and spent thousands of dollars on spray tans, clothing, make-up and a special pad to give her booty the Kimmie-lift.  But that's only temporary.  Claire says she hopes to get implants soon.
Despite the major debt, Claire says it's all been worth it.  "When I get my Kimmy on I feel like I'm unstoppable and untouchable, and I feel like no one can stop me and I can make something of myself.  I feel strong.  I feel that I have built enough confidence to love myself a little bit more."
hehehehe, hilarious!!!!!!!

Kim Kardashian
, the reality star released an app entitled “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood where you get to run around in fancy threads for photo shoots, club appearances, and other luxe life necessities. Kim teased her fans for months about the process of making the game, taking to twitter and instagram to release hints, and now it seems as if all of her hard work has paid off. The Hollywood Gossip reports that Mrs. West can look to earn as much as $200 million dollars from the app in the next year. I downloaded the game too and I found it a little bit boring.
According to Bloomberg News, since its release on June 25 of this year, Kim’s app peaked as the second most-downloaded free game in Apple’s U.S. App Store, and currently is the third-most downloaded game in the store, thanks to people like me.Forbes reported that Kim made an estimated $28 million over the last year from all of her other endeavors–the clothing lines, beauty products and more, included; her game could seriously up the ante on her annual income.
The game is also available on Google Play, and we hear it’s highly addictive, especially if you are looking to become a reality star yourself some day.
Although am glad she's feeling confident, I ll leave her with an advice:  Just be you at least you , Kim might want to be you if she see you, you know and you won't end up in credit card debt that way.
By the way Kim is making money and you are running into debt.

are you a lover of men's wear?....

Let me start by saying this trend is not totally if as a female follower of fashion, you were to bask in the afterglow of the recent international menswear shows, that light would be tinted pink. Petal power in the form of blush-coloured suiting at Jil Sander, Versace and Marc Jacobs mingled with midriff-revealing knits at JW Anderson and waist-cinched jackets at Louis Vuitton.
The feminine influence over menswear has reached covetable new extremes, for their easy-going, boxy cut. While Saint Laurent's skin-tight trousers, layered necklaces and floaty Sixties scarves verge on sassy. Subscribing to Hedi Slimane's particular take on "unisex" offers the freedom of an alternative uniform: match your skinny leather pants with a boyfriend's or swipe his Beatnik jacket from the wardrobe and why not?
Equally popular, if less dishevelled, is JW Anderson's arty boy/girl style. His un-gendered designs made a double appearance during the recent run of menswear shows: first, under his eponymous London label, and then in Paris where his debut collection for historic Spanish fashion house Loewe showcased identical looks on a modern couple, their gender almost impossible to call.
The ultimate guide to unisex dressing, however, came from Mrs Prada, who delivered a high fashion version of "his 'n' hers" - Fifties denim cuts and workaday sports jackets worn in sequence by first male, then female models.
There's never been a better time to borrow from the boys. Just note: there isn't a baggy "boyfriend" jean in sight.

Oisetohanmen “Omon” Isinugben cover Allure Magazine

The emerging fashion star who is the Creative Director of Abuja-based fashion label Belois Couture is indeed one to watch! Not only did she win the first season of Africa’s leading fashion TV reality show, she has backed it up with a great post-win collection.
Fashion Protege Winner Omon for Allure Magazine - BellaNaija - July2014001It’s the Fashion Protégé – Oisetohanmen “Omon” Isinugben of Belois Couture!
For Allure‘s new issue, the first MultiChoice Nigeria Fashion Protégé winner has been featured on the cover Allure magazine 
In the glossy pages, Allure chats with Omon for an exclusive interview and also showcase her latest collection – “Átómu” For her interview with Pamela Echemunor, Omon relives her exciting experience in the rigorous 4-week competition – she shares how she got into the business of fashion, her thoughts on the Fashion Protégé experience, having Mai Atafo as her mentor on the show, what’s next for Belois Couture and of course the prize money.
On how she got into fashion designing I never really thought of fashion designing as a full-time career. However, during my NYSC year I worked as a banker and couldn’t find happiness in the job. I found that I would always gravitate towards my late night sewing for satisfaction. So after my NYSC, I decided to do what makes me happy.
On her Fashion Protégé experience
MultiChoice Nigeria’s sponsorship of the Fashion Protégé was awesome. Every single step/challenge was a learning experience and a great opportunity to meet other emerging designers, identify with them, their passion, creativity, ambition and hopefully build our brands together. It was also great to learn from industry professionals who run established brands.
Fashion Protege Winner Omon for Allure Magazine - BellaNaija - July2014002
On Mentorship from Mai Atafo: Mai Atafo is an amazing fashion designer who I would rather call a fashion entrepreneur. Having passion is good, but having creative passion that creates demand and even pays the bills is bliss! This is what Mai taught me. He opened my eyes to making my passion a viable source and not crashing out of the industry as an emerging brand. The major point I learned from him was that having an eager market to buy your designs is as important as creating those designs and understanding the diversity and uniqueness of the fashion industry. This greatly influenced my final collection.
Mai also taught me to look my best and ‘chin-up’. I remember that while on set for the lookbook challenge, I had taken off my heels and was wearing flats (They didn’t match my outfit). He said to me “Omon, where are your shoes? Oya go and put them on“. He was like a big brother to all of us.
On plans for the prize money
First, I will pay my tithe and then invest the rest into building and making Belois Couture a better brand.
On what’s next for Belois Couture
Belois Couture has been given a very wonderful platform to become a global brand which is our vision. However, our mission is to first deliver excellence in clothing and fashion.

Valentino's autum/winter 2014 runway show.................

Ok,so  Valentino's autumn/winter 2014 fashion show was set in the exquisite Hotel Salomon de Rothschild, Valentino’s autumn/winter 2014 couture show was a clear case of all roads lead to Rome.Staged on a runway of tree trunk brown bark surrounded by living walls, the impact of Italy’s ancient city was clear, with Centurion nymphs  clad in flat gladiatorial sandals, barely-there yoga dresses, leather-belted tunics and the simplest middle-parted hair – whisking towards the photographer pit. But while this imbued a stripped-back, easy element, the collection was anything but.
Decadent layers appliquéd with black and gold sculpted flowers found in many a Roman fountain were in abundance; prints mirrored the tiles of the Vatican floor; and the girls themselves resembled the sculpted stone goddesses from the banks of the River Tiber, frozen in time and eternally elegant. And it wasn’t just an ode to the ancient Italian city, but to its traditions as well. Spliced-neck dresses and twinsets were covered in typical intrecciato weaves and intricate gold lacework showed off the skill and detail with which creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli work, always raising the bar, be it haute couture or ready-to-wear which, incidentally, this could in parts pass as.
Valentino Garavani himself sandwiched front row between Kim Kardashian and Carine Roitfeld was done proud tonight, in what was one of ( if not the) most cohesive and well-executed shows this season. Utterly chic in its update of ancient icons, it was a sensational way to round off Couture Fashion Week.
Take a look at few of the runway looks

and Kanye rants again............ “It’s about my dreams”

Kanye West - July 2014 - BN Music - 02and  There he goes again...... Kanye West is venting his frustrations as usual, as thousands of fans at the London Wireless Festival, were treated to an epic rant by Kanye. While performing “Runaway“, he took time out to address headlines that have made him look like a crazy man in the media.
You know damn well no black guys or celebrities making Louis Vuitton nothing. They let Pharrell make those [Louis Vuitton] glasses, and we liked ’em, right? They let me make those [Louis Vuitton] shoes and we liked ’em, right? They said, ‘No, no, no n***a. Not no more. That’s too much. Stay in your place. Stand in front of that show and wear this jacket I made you. Stay in your place! Do what you’re paid to do! Don’t embarrass yourself trying to chase your dreams. Save face.
That’s why I got this f***ing mask on. Cause I ain’t worried about saving face. F**k my face! That sounded wrong. Pause. They finally got a headline. But f**k whatever my face is supposed to mean and f**k whatever the name Kanye is supposed to mean, it’s about my dreams!
It’s about anybody’s dreams. It’s about creating. It’s not about the idea about being a f**king celebrity, it’s not about the idea of being a black man trying to do fashion and sh*t. These walls that I break down, and we will. And I’m arguing with my friend [director] Spike Jonze in the car and he said, ‘Kanye, what you need to say is you’re gonna try, you’re going to try to break them down. Don’t say you’re just going to do it.’ I said, ‘I am gonna do it!’ I told Kim [Kardashian] seven years ago, ‘I’m gonna marry you!’ I didn’t say I’m gonna try. And I’m telling you right now as I stand on this stage, all this sh-t you heard me talking about, I’m gonna come and back all that s**t up
ok Kanye, we heard *wheew*
