Whats Poppington: Who Wore it Better

Have you all noticed how it’s okay for celebs to repeat outfits and shoes. A few years ago do you remember when it was the living end for celebs to be photographed wearing the same thing twice. I think they’re finally coming down to earth and realizing their normal people too. It’s either that or the economy affected everyone and celebs are being a bit more realistic.


RiRi obviously has a unique style to say the  least. She looks best in the white tee dress with these Over the knee Tom Ford Fall  black and white peep toe boots. The other outfit has to much print. I know black and white print is in but really? Much to much.


Don’t yall just love Courtney Kardashian. She’s a little cutie pie. She wore her Sophia Webster Yayoi patent leather and suede sandals the best in both photos. That’s just how she does it. Cute and fashion correct all the time.

What’s Poppington: Tom Ford’s vampish Autumn/Fall 2011 Womens Lookbook

Let me just say Tom Ford is so far from average, so far from basic, and so far from ordinary, and for the 100th time he has proven that to us. He doesn’t do anything in halves, he’s what I call a damn designer. His women’s look book for autumn /fall 2011 is so full of Glamour until its absolutely ridiculous . Instead collars are framed with lavish furs.

Dresses encase the body in delicate lace, from high lace necks down to a flared skirt silhouette. His suits were very masculine, but with feminine architecture, and there’s nothing more sexier than a woman in a tuxedo inspired suit. Some ensembles have a rather soft and classic basis but others are taken by a Gothic underpinning, a vampish quality that manifests in crucifix pendants – the kind that might be inspired by Victorian jet mourning necklaces black lace, and blood red lips. But while there’s no single reigning theme, one thing is certainly clear: Tom Ford’s no shorts or flip-flops mantra applies equally to men and women.

Whats Poppington: Beyonce for ‘Dazed & Confused’ Magazine

Beyonce covers the latest Dazed & Confused magazine, this time around there wasnt a magazine editor doing the interview instead the tables were turned and Uber known designers such as Tom Ford, Riccardo Tisci, Stefano Pilati and Gareth Pugh all had the chance to do the questions. For the feature, she answered questions on whether she’s shy when she’s not on stage, the first thing she does upon waking up in the morning and why it was important for her to take risks on her new album

Are you shy? (Asked by Tom Ford)
I used to be very shy. I don’t think I’m shy any more. I get really uncomfortable when I’m not performing on the stage or on a photo shoot and have too many people looking at me expecting a performance. It make me kind of shut down and become shy. I’m happier to talk to people and try to learn something from them. I’m better at one-on-one conversations. I do become shy and a bit intimidated when it’s a large group of people, I definitely retreat. At a big dinner I just hope that no one expects anything from me. I wish I’d disappear.

What is the first thing you do when you wake up? (asked by Ricardo Tisc)
Usually I try to stay quiet and meditate. Not literally meditate. I mean lay in bed and think about everything I need to do, plus everything I learned from the previous day. In the past couple of weeks, I’ve literally fallen asleep with the blackberry in my hand because I’m up answering emails, coming up with marketing plans and looking at radio numbers. It’s really sad! My family is like, ‘Oh my God!’ I literally have pictures of me knocked out with my finger on the computer space bar!

Virgo characteristics do you have? (asked by Gareth Pugh)

I am a Virgo to the tee! I wonder what signs the other designers are? I like to think outside the box. I don’t believe in the answer ‘no’. I am extremely driven and extremely critical – sometimes overly critical. Sometimes it is one of the things that I have to work on. I am a control freak. I pay attention to details. When I do something I do it 100 per cent. I have high expectations of myself and expect the exact same thing of everyone around me. I’ve always been that way. I am all or nothing.

In addition, she explains to the magazine that it was important for her to take risks this time around versus making music that everyone else is making.

This part of my life is all about embracing change and going to the next level, taking risks and showing my bravery. Not being safe. Not doing the song that everyone else on pop radio sounds like. Basically, what everyone else is doing, unless it’s something that’s natural for me. I want to do something completely different. I feel like I’ve earned that right. Risks excite me

Whats Poppington: Jon Kortajarena




Jon Kortajarena became part of the fashion industry as something “temporary” in September 2003. In Spain, Roberto Verino gave him his first job opportunity in Cibeles, nevertheless, his international career leaped a few weeks later when Ellen Von Unwerth chose to use his image for Cavalli’s younger line. His Dream was NYC and that’s just where he went! Steven Meisel saw him and together, with some of the tops of the moment (R.J. or Tyson Ballou) they put together some amazing photos for Versace. This Basque was always well received on international runways, slowly making his way up until he became one of the main references in the shows he starred in.


Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Giorgio Armani, John Galliano, Dolce & Gabbana, Ferré, and Cavalli, amongst many others in the fashion industry, used him in their main shows. In 2007, Jon was chosen to star for seven different campaigns for the most prestigious fashion brands. He often appears in the most important fashion magazines – Vman, POP, V magazine, Vogue Homme, GQ and together with Milan V, they published a whole issue in L´Officiel Homme, with the cover title “200 Pages of Fashion with Jon Kortajarena”. It was the first time a male model had achieved this and consequently it became a reference in the industry. In 2009, Forbes ranks Kortajarena as the world’s eighth top male model and 2010, models.com ranks him as the world´s seven top male models. He has also been given different awards such as Spanish and German GQ men of the year, Marie Claire or Glamour Mexico. But above all, one of the most satisfying jobs for him is the one he does with “The Climate Project”where the very same Al Gore, former vice president of the U.S.has chosen him to be the face of the foundation “The Climate Project” in Spain and Latin America.
