Yea, Nay, or Eh: Amber Rose In Alexander Wang
Truer words were scarcely spoken when Kanye West proclaimed at last night’s Roberto Cavalli party: “It’s not fashion week without me.” Of late he’s been joined by a partner-in-ubiquity: his newish lady love, Amber Rose. The cropped-super-short platinum blonde is a puzzle to some—partly because she doesn’t quite share the unerring panache that has made the Louis Vuitton don an industry obsession. While statement-making, her ensembles—e.g., the strange pairing of Current/Elliott denim track shorts with a sports bra and wire-rimmed glasses she was snapped in recently—don’t quite spark sartorial shivers. But her front-row look at Hussein Chalayan yesterday is another story. The sheer, body-con Alexander Wang spring dress hits just the right notes of ultra-sexy-but-stylish, while those fabulously fantastical Louis Vuitton sandals (and the oversize clutch) spike the high-fashion quotient to more than satisfactory levels. We’re not totally shivering yet, but there’s definitely a chill in the air. We’ll call this a smart move in the right direction for the current First Lady of the Celeb Section. What do you think, Style Filers? Hot or cold?
