Whats Poppington: Kate Moss and Rihanna V Magazine

Rihanna-Kate-Moss-Cover-V-Magazine-PnP

If you ever wanted to know what it may be like to see Katien Moss and Rihanna in girl on girl action well you don’t have to wounder anymore. V Magazine has a fashion spread that captures the very essence of bondage and implied sex, with fashion of course between the supermodel Kate Moss and the mega pop star Rihanna.

Mario Testino  had a front-row seat to their girlish antics, and when the photographer asked Rihanna when they could schedule a shoot, Moss was keen to participate. “Kate overheard us talking and she said, ‘I want to do it with you!’ Again, I was like, Are you fucking kidding me?” says Rihanna with a laugh. “I was dying on the inside. All my fantasies were coming true all at once: Mario, V, Kate Moss. I was like, This is an amazing threesome!”

Rihanna says of Moss. The concept of playing with each other using masculine and feminine identities evolved organically, she says, and then, naturally, at the end, they got naked. “And that was the best shot,” Rihanna laughs. “Take her top off and put that b-tch in my lap!”

Whats Poppington: Rihanna x Hackney x Katie Eary

Okay I happened to be watching BBC Hackney week live, it was a rocnation week, Jayz, Rihanna, Rita etc etc. Rihanna headlined at Hackney Weekend Festival last night. Rih was styled by Mel Ottenberg for her set. She wore black sunglasses with gold detail by Mercura NYC, who are known for their out-of-the-box designs. Her t-shirt is Katie Eary’s Screaming Cheetahs tee from the Spring/Summer 2012 collection. She also wore the highly coveted Nike x Kanye West Air Yeezy II’s and fishnet shorts by Jonathan Aston. Rihanna’s vintage gold necklace is from House of Lavande.

So who is Katie Eary?….and I dont mean Katy Perry

KATIE EARY IS THE LONDON-BASED DESIGNER WHO WILL SOON NEED NO INTRODUCTION – HER AGGRESSIVE BUT NOBLE MENSWEAR IS AN UNSTOPPABLE, INEVITABLE HURRICANE RIPPING ITS OWN PATH THROUGH FASHION.

IF DIFFICULT SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC TIMES SUCH AS THIS BRING WATERSHED MOMENTS, RARE CHANGES OF PERSPECTIVE THAT GRAB FASHION BY THE LAPEL AND DRAG IT INTO THE FUTURE, THEN KATIE IS THE YOUNG TALENT THAT REALLY IS THE BURGEONING VOICE, AND ATTITUDE, OF OUR GENERATION.

EARY STUDIED HER MA AT THE ROYAL COLLEGE OF ART AND GRADUATED IN 2008. HEAT STARTED GENERATING ALMOST IMMEDIATELY: THE FIRST CALL SHE RECEIVED WAS FROM BRITISH VOGUE. MARIO TESTINO WAS TO SHOOT HER CUSTOM-MADE PIECES ON KATE MOSS. “EVEN THE HATS,” SHE REITERATES. “I DIDN’T TRAIN TO BE A MILLINERY DESIGNER AND I DIDN’T MAKE WOMENSWEAR, YET OUT OF ALL THE PEOPLE THAT GRADUATED THAT YEAR THEY CHOSEN MY STUFF. THAT’S PRETTY INCREDIBLE.

Whats Poppington: Rihanna in Esquire

No surprise to me, my favorite sexy Barbadian Rihanna is on the cover of another magazine selling that amazing sex appeal that shes famously known for. Shot by the controversial Terry Richardson again for the second time in a month, Rihanna is covering Esquire in a a military get-up, blonde locks, a very little to the imagination cut out bra and just raw sex appeal….im starting to think, do blondes really have more fun? Esquire UK’s July 2012 issue, topless, with a headline that states, ‘Rihanna Will Not Be Censored’…….hmmm 🙂

Whats Poppington: Rihanna x Terry Richardson

So far this morning we’ve learned Kim Kardashian was banned from the MET Gala, Sofia Vergara is single and now here’s Rihanna grabbing her ass in tiny booty shorts while posing for Terry Richardson who we already know is a photographical Jesus. Rihanna gives us the two butts up with this funny candid photoshoot by the one and only Terry Richardson, its fun, its simple, just Riri in a pair of high wasted denim shorts, and white tied tshirt, and some nice die hard legs 🙂

Whats Poppington: Rihanna’s “You da one” Video Fashion

Rihanna does it again with her amazing “cant touch this” fashion choices. In her latest video “you da one” she is giving us avant garde gone street. I love the black and white fashion in this video, its very chic, very wearable…except the fishnet suit….well if your lady gaga, and those Balenciaga shoes shes been wearing is starting to grow on me. The video is very similar to photographer Solve Sundsbo. He’s known for his shadows and manipulated lights.

Whats Poppington: Rihanna sexy, relaxed vaca (photo album)

Rihanna Vacas during her short/long time break, and opportunity to work on her new material “talk that talk” album with the first single “we found love”. So the vacation spot was on the Italian riviera, South of France and a few other places, but I wasnt able to find out exactly where, Rihanna, and few of her very close friends, stylist, body guard, PR, private photographer etc etc. What I admire the most about these photos is she is actually having fun like a normal person. She wore no makeup besides a little Russian Red Lipstick *MAC* which is her favorite…and she looks amazing, check out the pics, and a very special Nip pic in there somewhere. I love you Rihanna

Whats Poppington: Rihanna “we found love” video

Theres only certain videos that make me watch it over and over and over, and I get this certain relationship with it, as if it was made for me. In RiRi’s latest video ‘ We found Love’ feat Calvin Harris, she takes us on this fashionable love hate relationship with a guy that looks similar to Chris Brown, the video shows what its like to have two dysfunctional love birds trying to make it happen, but in the end, its just not worth it, and you eventually have to move on , the fashion is phenomenal, the pinup hair dos, the rockabilly punkish theme studded clothing, I love it all

Photobucket

“Both playful and audacious, equal part reverie while pushing the boundaries of fashion completely forward, Boxing Kitten is a vibrant melee of Then and Now. Vintage-inspired silhouettes celebrate a time gone by, with designs that call upon the spirit and lives of mid-century American women that are modernized for the woman of today and the future.” http://boxingkitten.com/profile

The collection uses African wax block print fabrics, which makes each piece unmatched. Founder and designer, Maya A. Lake. expressive her collection as being  an “ethnic rockabilly” look. I would say that it the right description.

Boxing Kitten an impressive array of celebrity fans and high clientele. You can spot these bright, colorful pieces on fierce women such as Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Solange Knowles, Fergie, Erykah Badu, and in the pages of The New York Times, Teen Vogue, and Arise.

Whats Poppington:Alexander McQueen’s ‘Savage Beauty’ Metroplitan Gala Party

Photobucket

Okay so its here!! It has arrived…its the Met Gala Party..Met for Metropolitan by the way. The Metropolitan Gala is an annual exhibit that always draws the heavy hitters of fashion, any celeb or designer of the moment, and past will be there slaying the red carpet….sometimes. To the fashion world, its bigger than the Grammys, because its all blood sweat, and tears for fashion, and next year’s fete will no doubt be even more explosive, thanks to the theme of this year’s exhibit: “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.”

Photobucket

Since Mc Queens’s dresses have become the subject of “cult- like devotion” among alot of fashion insighters and laymen alike. The Costume Institute’s annual party has become, in many ways, the fashion community’s biggest red carpet night (last year’s dresses ranged from a Zac Posen meringue to a light-up Katy Perry), and adding a McQueen tribute to the mix will no doubt up both the fashion ante and the emotional energy at the event.

Photobucket

The party to end all parties originated in 1948 when the Costume Institute was founded at the Metropolitan Museum. At its inception, it was decided that the American fashion industry would both help to curate the institute and supply its entire operating budget. Eleanor Lambert, who founded the CFDA (among other accomplishments), originally ran the party. Matrons paid $50 to wear some of the Costume Institute’s gowns at a midnight supper in December. Following Lambert, society figures like Diana Vreeland and Pat Buckley took turns co-chairing. Vogue Editor Anna Wintour took over in 1995, and is credited with bringing a Hollywood element to the party.

According the WWD, the exhibit which runs May 4th through July 31st, with the benefit gala on May 2nd, will also include pieces collected from a few sources: McQueen’s graduate collection at Central St. Martins, selections from his tenure at Givenchy, custom-made items from the closet of Isabella Blow, and more. There’ll even be a “Cabinet of Curiosities” including pieces McQueen made in collaboration with fellow designers like Philip Treacy. As Andrew Bolton, who is spearheading the exhibit, told WWD, ““After McQueen’s death, we wanted to stage an exhibition to celebrate his legacy in fashion history and his contributions to fashion … McQueen had such a singular voice and he was a remarkable technician.”
