It’s safe to say Rihanna & Kanye West are two of the most trusted style icons in the music industry, right? Ok, good. But what happens when one piggybacks off the other’s style? Rihanna was spotted wearing a tank and sweatpants from British designer Kokon to Zai at a Clippers game earlier this week…but wait- we’ve seen this look before. With elaborate, loud patchwork of bands like Metallica, Exit and Slayer, we first saw Kanye West rock the same pants late last year. While both styled the sweatpants differently, Kanye went with a more relaxed feel while Rihanna channeled her inner rocker chick. The chocker and backwards cap scream tom boy, but I’m loving how Riri transformed this men’s look into sporty chic.
Diddy & Cassie blew up IG the last couple weeks in anticipation of Cassie’s newly released mixtape Rockabyebaby. The video for Paradise debuted this week featuring Wiz Khalifa sporting a Joy New York Hoodie from clothing brand JoyRich and also had a cameo from the lovely Karrueche for what seemed to be the duration of the video. Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Kat Graham also seem to be huge advocates of rocking the eclectic JoyRich style.
How could I end this without talking about ultimate style icons Bey & Jay? I swear these two can do no wrong…ever. We’ve got the Ms. Carter World Tour, Made In America, shows at the Barclays and the norm…anniversaries in Cuba. Wait guys- THAT’S NOT NORMAL! Always camera ready and put together, Beyonce sported a Thakoon Addition Zebra Print Button Down top and skirt with woven flats while Jay kept it simple in a polo, shorts, and the unexpected curveball- Nike Air Force 180 Highs. Bravo Jay for bringing the 180s back into the limelight.
Which dynamic duos style were you feeling this week?
