The internet has been popping all day thanks to the latest, and controversial, addition to men’s fashion, RompHims.

RompHims, or rompers for men, have debuted and it looks like nothing will ever be the same again.

Yes, perhaps we are being a bit melodramatic, but this is one piece of clothing we never saw becoming unisex. Whether you like them or not, currently they are the biggest summer fashion trend for man and the only look making any waves in the media.

Honestly, when we first heard of the new fashion trend we were skeptical, but are now wholeheartedly behind it. The colors, styles, and designs these new outfits come in are really quite extraordinary. More importantly they have been reshaped, resized, and given masculine appeal. In our opinion, they look amazing. Check out a few more looks below.

Luka Sabbat in the New York Times

the ascent of luka sabbat as one of the most fashionable teens on the internet can only be described as supersonic.

Luka Sabbat

A spirited New Yorker, Luka Sabbat was discovered in SoHo while in route to buy a new video game.  From there the 18 year old has been seen in many different fashion campaigns from Tommy Hilfiger to, most recently, Dolce & Gabbana.  The latter of which he has been a steady presence on their men’s and women’s runway collection. You could say that fashion is in his blood, having been raised by a mother, who formerly worked as a booker for models and a father who designs a womenswear line.  His start came soon after he was signed to ReQuest Model Management, when fashion genius himself, Kanye West picked Luka as one of the models for his Yeezy collection.

#FashionCrush-Met Gala edition

Rihanna at the Met Gala 2017

Loads of A-listers showed up and showed out at last night’s Met Gala.

Comme des Garcon by rei Kawakubo as featured in this years Met Gala

This year’s theme was all about the living legend and uniquely talented Rei Kawakubo and her label Comme des Garcons.  Having started the company in 1973, Kawakubo’s Comme des Garcons collections have impressed many a fashion lover with it’s avant garde aesthetic and distorted proportions. The name translated means “anti-fashion” which ironically has been the driving force behind the label’s success.

This being said the avante garde theme of this year’s Met Gala gave the celebrities in attendance the perfect excuse to turn up the shock and awe. There were lots of amazing looks but a few of them in particular had me smiling from the inside out.

I couldn’t post without mentioning my boys Jaden Smith and Luka Sabbat.  It was no shock that these two would eventually find themselves in a picture together.  This is perfectly fine with me seeing as how I’m low-key obsessed with them both. Jaden wore his go to label of choice Louis Vuitton, where he formerly was house muse. Smith accessorized his look with a diamond encrusted grille as well as his newly shorn blonde locks.  Luka Sabbat, who still has his locs, chose to don a bold red tuxedo by Dolce & Gabbana Alto Sartorio (Dolce & Gabbana’s mens couture line). Sabbat, who is currently starring in Dolce & Gabbana’s spring ad campaigns, was a perfect mix of sartorial elegance and laid back cool.

Speaking of Jaden, his ex Kylie Jenner took my breath away.  Say what you want about her, Kylie was nothing short of perfection in her Atelier Versace creation. Platinum blonde bob and Donatella Versace as her accessories, Jenner was the queen of the night.

Last but certainly not least I have to give it to my girl Rihanna. The “Phresh off the Runway” singer was sort of “fresh off the runway” having chosen a Comme Des Garcons piece straight from their fall 2016 runway collection. You gotta hand it to her, not many people can pull off wearing a byzantine conduit of fabric in assorted colors and prints.  No surprise, consequently the pop singer could have walked down the carpet wearing a burlap sack and would still have looked better than half the women there.

#Fashion Crush- Kim Kardashian (@KimKardashian)

Kim Kardashian wearing Balmain

“All hail the queen!” That’s what I’m usually thinking whenever I see the ubiquitous Kim Kardashian.

Kim Kardashian

With over 98 million followers on instagram, Kim Kardashian is hands down the most popular of the Kardashian Klan. Now in its 13th season Keeping up with the Kardashians has become a global phenomenon all centered around the gorgeous Kim and her wacky family.  In recent years, however, the attraction that keeps me watching has not been e the family but to anticipate what Kim might be wearing in the next scene.  We watched Kim go from tight Herve Leger bandage dresses and sky high Louboutins to only wearing the most expensive haute couture from french houses such as Givenchy and Balmain, the latter in which Kim has become best friends with the designer. Most would argue this is thanks, in large parts, to her husband Kanye West, who has been a darling to the fashion industry ever since he collaborated with french house, Louis Vuitton, to design limited edition sneakers back in 2009.

A once shunned figure in the fashion industry, it is now expected to find Kim front row at some of the most acclaimed fashion shows, usually cheering on little sister Kendall Jenner. What a life those Kardashians/Jenners live right? I can admit my love of Kim Kardashian has been a guilty pleasure of mine.  Anytime she steps out she never ceases to amaze me with her fashion choices. As a fashion lover, one could only dream of living the life, or even having a sliver of whats in her closet.

Thinking back to the beginning of her career, who could have imagined that Paris Hilton’s best friend would one day out shine her in every way.  The brand that was the Hilton sisters has long been eclipsed by all things Kardashians. From makeup lines (Kylie), denim lines (Khloe), and uber successful apps and video games, it’s hard not to be affected in some way by the Kardashian sisters and even harder not to notice the influence they, or more especially Kim, has had on fashion or even in the way people search for fame and fortune these days.

All things aside, its easy to see that Kim Kardashian is right where she always strived to be. A household name, a fixture in the fashion world, and the wife of a mega famous hip hop star, how could you not sit back and smile all while counting your millions from a couture filled closet. With the Met Gala approaching I’m tingling with excitement and anticipation over what this beauty has in store for us next.

#Fashion Crush- Anna Dello Russo (@annadellorusso)

 When discussing a high next level sense of style, it wound be hard not to acknowledge the flamboyant, over the top, super glamorous spectacle that is Anna Dello Russo.

Anna Dello Russo at the Met Ball in 2011

As the editor-at-large of Vogue Nippon(Japan), Anna Dello Russo utilizes every opportunity to step out in the most coveted runway looks. A true fashion darling, Russo has become renown for never wearing the same outfit twice.  Once an outfit is worn, it is then archived at her other apartment, which was only purchased to house her ever plentiful wardrobe. And the born and bred Italian never disappoints.  Adopting the aesthetic of her homeland, Anna Dello Russo, the constant maximalist, can always be spotted in a full runway look and one of her signature fascinators.  I can’t help but to admit that I can respect the lady for her dedication to fashion.  To commit to never wearing the same thing twice must take as much diligence as it does money.  When asked why she doesn’t like to repeat looks she playfully exclaims in her Italian accent: “How else are you gonna please the blogger?”

With a major influence on the fashion world, it was no wonder that the fashion chain, H&M, looked to Anna Dello Russo to collaborate with them on a limited edition collection of accessories back in 2013.   The playful, wacky, yet elegant collection of bracelets, earrings, and shoes were a true representation of the fashion diva’s unique style.

A jet setting life, a neverending the wardrobe, and a white hot career, Anna Dello Russo has a life that many sit up at night and dream about.  But when asked if she could only save one outfit in the fire which would she do. Anna Dello Russo had a surprising answer;  “I wouldn’t save an outfit only shoes because I always felt like I could be naked but only with the right pair of shoes.”
