It’s not hard to realize that everything Rihanna touches turns to double platinum.  Any brand the “Diamonds” singer attaches her name to is instantly a cash cow.  When you look at her majorly successful collaboration with Puma, we see every launch selling out in a matter of hours, or sometimes even minutes. Rihanna’s latest collab is her most high end to date.  Swiss jewelry company, Chopard, has ranked highly amongst the jewelry world almost since it was started back in 1860. Many of their pricey baubles could easily exceed six figures.

#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.

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.”

Chrissy Teigen (@chrissyteigen) Opens Up About Postpartum Depression in “Glamour” (@glamourmag) Essay

chrissy teigen glamour magazine

The birth of a child is always a wonderful and beautiful event. However, the onset of post-pardum depression that many women face after giving birth can be quite an ordeal. According to studies, ten to fifteen percent of women deal or have dealt with it.

As in such, this condition spans races, classes, and status as evidenced by Chrissy Teigen, who recently penned an essay in Glamour about her “painful” ordeal with postpartum depression after the birth of her daughter with John Legend, Luna.

Even though she mentions feeling “privileged” to have the resources and support many other mothers facing PPD don’t have, Miz Teigen says it was important to her to write this open letter:

“But postpartum does not discriminate. I couldn’t control it. And that’s part of the reason it took me so long to speak up: I felt selfish, icky, and weird saying aloud that I’m struggling. Sometimes I still do. I know I might sound like a whiny, entitled girl. Plenty of people around the world in my situation have no help, no family, no access to medical care. I can’t imagine not being able to go to the doctors that I need. It’s hurtful to me to know that we have a president who wants to rip health care away from women. I look around every day and I don’t know how people do it. I’ve never had more respect for mothers, especially mothers with postpartum depression.”

She added:

“I’m speaking up now because I want people to know it can happen to anybody and I don’t want people who have it to feel embarrassed or to feel alone. I also don’t want to pretend like I know everything about postpartum depression, because it can be different for everybody. But one thing I do know is that—for me—just merely being open about it helps. This has become my open letter.”
