What Does The Future Hold For These Capricious Stars?

They grace the covers of almost all of the tabloids week after week. Is marriage in store for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West? Are Rihanna and Chris Brown on the road to reconciliation? If you’re having trouble predicting what’s in stores for these celebrities, just turn to Oranum, a relatively new psychic network in the United States. Their consulting mediums are experts in providing clarity on these high-profile subjects.

For many celebrity gossip followers, the big question when it comes to Kim and Kanye is “will they last?” According to Oranum expert Dr. Nikki, the answer is yes! “The question isn’t ‘do they love each other?’ it’s ‘is their love strong enough to withstand the tide of commentary that being a celebrity couple creates,” says Dr. Nikki. “The energy and love sparkles between these two –especially when they look each other in the eye –there is no doubt for me that they will make it longer than most do with a ‘world watched’ relationship.” But is a star-studded (and most likely televised) wedding in the near future? According to Dr. Nikki, not quite. “I think they are still trying to define the relationship between themselves. I would expect to hear about upcoming nuptials later in the year – I feel it will fall between Thanksgiving and New Year’s.”

Even more shocking than the brutal assault Rihanna suffered at the hands of Chris Brown is the fact that the two of them appear to be communicating once again! But while it seems like they are rekindling their romance, Dana Waddell, a consulting Oranum clairvoyant, sees it as more of a professional relationship. “These two are indeed soul mates and had multiple past lives, but not always in a romantic sense,” she says. “In this lifetime, both are extremely competitive, super motivated, and highly driven to succeed, so while they might work well together, Rihanna and Chris should remain colleagues instead of being romantically linked.” Dana also senses that Rihanna feels that Chris is a deeply soulful artist, but is too much to handle in terms of relationships, while Chris feels she makes too many mistakes with men and that he understand her better than anyone else. “Will they get back together as love interests? Not while they’re still so young. But in terms of sharing the stage and collaborating in the studio –most definitely.”

Hybrid-Holism @UnitedNude

Iris Van Herpen took inspiration from the world of microscopic organisms. Translation: flower shoe. Titled “Thorn.”

This is the sixth collaboration shoe with United Nude.

Complementing van Herpen’s creations, the shoes combine liquid slow molded uppers and sharp-spiked stones with a whapping 19cm heel and hidden platform. The spikes, made of hand cut stones such as Labradorite, Tiger’s Eye, Leopard Jasper and Moss Agate, pierce through the upper between the platform and heel, creating a semi-precious arch of thorns that form the focal point of this ferocious bootie. “Thorn” will be produced in very limited numbers in various colors, such as glossy nude, glossy black and matt black.

 

Iris considers fashion as a form of self-expression. Her garments are clear artistic statements that are fused with highly detailed craftsmanship and innovative techniques that define her state of mind. Her exceptional combinations create a sculptured effect and have an astonishing visual impact. It is no surprise that Björk and Lady Gaga are part of her devoted clientele.

Rem D Koolhaas, Founder and Creative Director of United Nude said: “Creating new shoes with Iris is a greater challenge each time. The new shoes have to be better than the previous and the techniques used for making them advance. We race against the clock and fly people all over the world to get the shoes to Paris. The excitement to see her show is something we live up to a long time in advance and is one of our most proud artistic highlights of the year.”

How to wear this statement shoe?  Lots of leg, a touch of lip color and top if off with sheer.

Oh BOY! @Chanel

I never ever fall for handbags the way I fall for shoes. But when I went to the Chanel store at Americana Manhasset – I fell hard!  The Chanel BOY is by far the Chanel bag that is after my own heart. The antiqued silver closure and the double heavy duty chain is perfect for all the places I would bring it.  It is so grungy and classy at the same time – I think it’s a match made in heaven for me!

My new friend BOY is much more exciting than my new boy friend.

They range from $2000-$4000 depending on the size and material.  I kinda dig it. What do you think?

I want this small black and silver one

Here is what they said on Teen Vogue:

It would be safe to say that twenty-four-year-old Brit-by-way-of-Brazil Alice Dellal isn’t the typical Chanel lady. She has a nose ring and upwards of fifteen tattoos. Half of her head is shaved. She prefers leather jackets to tweed ones and silver spikes to pearls. And instead of a 2.55 (the gold standard of pouches for most girls), her pockets have always served as her purse.

Meet Chanel’s latest addition to its stable of iconic bags. “What I love about the Boy,” Alice says, “is that it’s rough around the edges. It isn’t a perfect little lady bag.” Indeed, with punk luxe chains and seatbelt-style straps, it’s anything but prissy. Inspired by English hunting bags, the carryall takes its name from Boy Capel, Coco Chanel’s onetime paramour.

To hear Karl Lagerfeld tell it, Alice was born to be its leading lady. “It takes more courage to push a look like hers than to be average,” he says. “Alice has style in the extreme.”

When I meet Alice at Chanel’s rue Cambon headquarters on a sunny April day, she has already staked a claim on a black patent Boy with a chain belt. (She also has a gray stingray style.) “I like something I can wear all the time that goes with everything,” she tells me. (Editor’s note: “Everything” in Alice’s book translates to devilishly short skirts, band tees, and shredded denim.)

You can’t go wrong with classic black, but since I can’t compete with Alice’s rocker persona (the only things I shave are my legs, and I have zero tattoos), I decide to test-drive a bright coral. With a bag this cool, I’m perfectly happy letting my outfit take a backseat!

The first stop of our Paris rendezvous—aprés Chanel, bien sûr—is the Palais Royal, where we can’t resist a photo op on artist Daniel Buren’s black-and-white columns. Next, we hit Monster Melodies. When Alice isn’t posing in Chanel campaigns, she plays drums in London band Thrush Metal, and DJs (check teenvogue.com for her top tracks). The last stop on our tour de Paris is Left Bank classic Café de Flore, where we order croque-monsieur and settle in at a sidewalk table.

Observing the chic passersby, Alice admits that French style is hard to resist. “When I was growing up, my mother always wore Chanel,” she says. “My sister, Charlotte [who designs haute shoe line Charlotte Olympia], has a tattoo of the logo,” she adds with a laugh. “It was the first label I knew about.” Since taking on an official role with the house, she’s even worked such Chanel classics as tweed jackets into her wardrobe—with cutoff jean shorts. “It’s a modern way to mix styles,” she says. And what of the baggage that comes with her new post? “I don’t go anywhere without it,” she asserts of her Boy bag. Needless to say, her pockets are out of a job.
