Pizza-obsessed Global Grind style writer slash Kanye West stan

Most of the time, the discourse about diversity in fashion and magazines is about the color of models‘ skin, with body shape and size often going overlooked.

Look, we all crossed our hearts, hoped to die, stick a needle in our eyes as kids when a regular pinky promise just wouldn’t do, but none of us really meant that…right? Especially the needle thing. It turns out, though, there are people who are really doing that. Like, seriously. For some tattoo enthusiasts, getting eyeball ink […]

Funny-faced Instagram selfies with even funnier captions aside, Gabrielle Union does not play around when it comes to a lot of things – like her career, protecting her empire, and her husband Dwyane Wade. But Wednesday night, the Being Mary Jane actress stepped out to the Late Show with Seth Meyers and reminded us to add fashion to that […]

Oh wait, we mean the latest issue of LOVE. If we know one thing about the Kardashians, it’s that they take things—Miami, New York, the Hamptons, the […]

Gina Rodriguez takes the lead in CW’s Jane the Virgin, but on the cover of Latina magazine, she’s a topless stunning sexpot. Wearing nothing but a patterned blazer and a dainty gold chain, Gina commands attention on the front page of the March issue. And if you don’t already know who she is, it’s time to get familiar. […]

On the cover of Men’s Health magazine, Kevin Hart is a small guy with big muscles and even bigger goals. Even though he’s always looking ahead to become a household name—because he’s not famous, he’s “black famous,” he says—he knows he’s a “big goddamn deal.” Inside the March issue, The Wedding Ringer actor tells all about his workout routine, […]

Holy Grail? More like Holy Gramps. The search for the fountain of youth is still on because no one can really be forever young, no matter how much they rap about it. We’re looking at you, Jay Z. Young Thug has come to terms with this, and that’s why he won’t be doing the rapping thing […]

We’re going to let you finish, but did Katy Perry really just call Kanye West a villain? Indeed, she did. But it’s not what you think. Fresh off her halftime performance during Sunday’s Super Bowl (which was the most watched game ever, by the way), the “Roar” singer takes to the cover of ELLE magazine, and inside, she opens up […]

Right now, most of the leaders of the new cool hail from famous families. And if there’s one thing Topshop is really good at, it’s plucking the coolest girls for their campaigns.

Have you heard that one ancient proverb that says you should dress for the job you want, not the one you have? Kendall Jenner has quickly become one of the most in-demand models, and for good reason. Not only can she keep up with some of the best of the best on the catwalk (remember […]

Stuck in a style rut? Consider it handled. Last night, Scandal star Kerry Washington stood not in the sun, but in the spotlight, to debut her latest collection for The Limited inspired by the hit television show. A follow-up to a very Olivia Pope line, this new spring collection will also include looks inspired by other characters – […]

Rihanna wasn’t the only person who was “FourFiveSeconds” from wildin’. We’ve done almost everything except drop down to our knees to beg for new music, and at long last, Ri delivered last week with the first single from her new album R8. Today, RiRi follows up the release with visuals directed by duo Inez and Vinoodh. Just like the song, […]
