Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Beyoncé Will Partner with Topshop for Athletic Streetwear Brand

Queen Bey just won’t stop! It has been announced that Beyoncé has partnered with London-based Topshop to form a joint company, Parkwood Topshop Athletic LTD. With this new partnership, a new athletic streetwear brand will be created, and could be launced in stores and online by fall 2015!

“This [is] not a collaboration. This is about building a brand and building a business — a separate, proper business, with separate overhead and a separate office,” Topshop owner Sir Philip Green told WWD in an interview. “Basically, when she was in London in February we arranged to get together. We started talking generally, about doing something together. We’ve been looking at that [athletic] sector for a while. It’s something we need to be in. Based on what she does, how she works out, the conversation got into that category. We started getting into proper conversation in May or June, as to how it would work. It took six or eight weeks to put a deal together. On Friday, Beyoncé came to our office for the last piece of the jigsaw puzzle.”

The collection will have clothing, footwear and accessories for dance, fitness and sports. It will be distributed to all Topshop stores and Topshop.com, but also other retailers such as Nordstrom hopefully. Topshop currently has 330 stores in the UK, and almost 500 worldwide. The fashion brand will open a store in New York on Nov. 5, opposite Saks Fifth Avenue. With 40,000 square feet, and four levels, this will be Topshop’s largest US store, and second-largest store in the world!

This is a great look for Beyoncé! I can’t wait to see what she comes out with in this new venture!

Kerry Washington to Launch Scandal Fashion Line!

Great news Gladiators: Now those of you like me who are in LOVE with Olivia Pope’s fashion on the show can pick up a few pieces inspired by her style! Kerry Washington and costume designer Lyn Paolo are collaborating with The Limited to launch Scandal fashion line!

“By creating a line inspired by the show, we are introducing a collection that embodies the elegance and power of the Scandal aesthetic for real-life gladiators and everyday fashionistas,” Kerry said in a press release. “The collection is a nod to our devoted fans, to fans of fashion and to women everywhere who are inspired to boldly pursue their passions and look good while doing it.”

The new mom worked with The Limited’s head of design Elliot Staples and Lyn, who comes up with the costuming for Scandal.  “It’s been really fun to have a voice at every stage of the production from picking buttons, choosing fabrics and weighing in on hair and makeup people,” Kerry said to WWD. “People who love the look of the show can now step into this world in a way that is affordable and accessible because not everybody can afford to have the clothes they see on the show,” she said.

Check out a first look at the Scandal clothing collection launching at The Limited this fall.

“The whole team took great care in creating a collection that reflects Olivia Pope’s unique style. We believe the collection tells a story of confidence and professional sophistication as well as maintaining a strong feminine point of view,” Lyn said in a press release. “I am so excited and hopeful that our Gladiators are as excited about the collection as we are; it has been such tremendous fun and such an honor to design for the amazing characters that Shonda Rhimes has created and now to help make their style accessible to all.”

Prices for the pieces are set to start at $49. Not bad at all! The line is set to make its debut in late September in The Limited stores nationwide and online. I will definitely be on the lookout! Ladies, we are sure to find some great pieces!

Kanye West is taking a break from his daddy duties, and making a comeback in the fashion world! The rapper and new father to North West is launching a menswear collection in collaboration with French label APC. Buyers and fans will be able to see the line when it’s revealed on July 14!

The label hit Twitter and Instagram to announce the news, posting a close-up shot of some jeans baring the label A.P.C. KANYE, and the text: “A.P.C. KANYE CAPSULE COLLECTION, JULY 14. #apc #kanyewest”. There’s no confirmed details on the line, but, according to reports, it’s supposed to include men’s denim, hoodies, and t-shirts.

 
Kanye, of course, is really into fashion, making his own trends and creating designs. He had his own label, which showed during Paris Fashion Week for two seasons. And though Kanye’s style isn’t always….understood by the masses to say the least (dude did recently rock a woman’s silk cami), it’ll be interesting to see what he and APC have come up with for men’s fashion!

Of course, we’ve got their bitches exposing a little bit too much cleavage. God forbid Benji and Joel have all the attention focused on them!
