Happy Monday VavaLovers!

This weekend was full of twists, turns and a hopeful surprise. As I try to keep up with this fashion world, something oh so unexpected happened. The death of the Co- founder of natural hair product Miss Jessie, Titi Branch  was such a tragedy last week, I was completely lost for words. I really had to take a moment to realize how blessed I am for starters and second, how important it is to enjoy and love what you do. Not everything was bad news this weekend. We may have a possible black Bond, Nicki Minaj released The Pinkprint movie, Kanye West spends $74k on Nori’s Kristmas and so much more. Take a look at what you may have missed in this weekend’s fashion news…. Enjoy!

Idris Elba in burberry


You have to admit Idris Elba looks amazing in a suit! So, when news broke that he could be the next 007, I got on hands and knees praying to the Movie Gods that this is true. According to an email uncovered by The Daily Beast, the British actor and one of the best dressed men in Hollywood I might add,  is on the shortlist to play the next James Bond after Daniel Craig steps down from his post. Dated January 4, 2014, the email, sent from Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman Amy Pascal (whose account was among those hacked the hardest) to former executive vice president of production for Columbia Pictures Elizabeth Cantillon, reads simply, “Idris should be the next bond.” 


Nicki Minaj is dominating the Rap Game with the drop of her new album The Pinkprint, slaying her Roberto Cavalli spring/summer 2015 ad and now add actress to her long list of resume’s. I know she already co-starred in the hit movie The Other Woman with Camren Daiz but now the Anaconda rapper is starring in her own short film; Pinkprint. The film was inspired by her breakup with longtime beau Safaree Samuels with four songs from the album (“The Crying Game,” “All Things Go,” “I Lied” and “Grand Piano”) and co-starring Willy Monfret and Boris Kodjoe.

kanye west and nori


Proud papa Kanye West  reportedly spent $74,000 on North West‘s Kristmas gifts this year, including a $62,000 diamond encrusted tiara and a $12,000 matte black SUV toy car to match her dad’s. Because what else do you get an 18-month-old who already has a fur gilet and a Chanel bag? I wonder if they’re taking adoption applications at the West compound (I’m filling out my app. right now!).

kimye for balmain

In true Kimye fashion, the duo ended the year in a major way. Kim Kardashian West and hubby Kanye West appeared in Balmain Paris new Spring 2015 campaign ad (like we didn’t see this coming). Kim K have been seen wearing countless Balmain outfits at red carpet events or just out and about shopping. The campaign ad also features op models such as Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley chowing down on burgers, playing video games and wrestling—all in Kardashian pal Olivier Rousteing‘s sexy designs.
