HOV for the Holidays

-------

Barneys x Jay Z

If you’re looking to give your loved ones a set of gilded brass knuckles this holiday season, look no further than Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter’s collaboration with Barneys. Following in the footsteps of Lady Gaga, who designed a holiday workshop for the retailer in 2011, Hova has worked with labels such as Proenza Schouler, En Noir, Rick Owens, Acne Studios, Lanvin, Balenciaga (above, top right), Balmain (above, bottom left), Hoorsenbuhs (who had a hand in the aforementioned ring, above, bottom right), and more to create a series of limited-edition products—all of which will be displayed and for sale in a special gallery in Barneys’ Madison Avenue flagship, beginning November 20. Twenty-five percent of the proceeds from the project, which the pair have dubbed A New York Holiday, will be donated to the Shawn Carter Foundation. We’ve got 99 problems (give or take), but, thanks to this team-up, holiday shopping ain’t one.

Giuseppe Zanotti and Kanye West

Or, at least, Giuseppe Zanotti does. In an interview with Jay-Z’s Web site Life + Times, Zanotti, who previously collaborated with West on a few pairs of outrageously priced sandals for the rapper’s Spring ’12 ready-to-wear collection, offered, “I really would love having a guest designer like Kanye during Milan’s fashion week. He could shake the system with his adrenaline.” Who knows—maybe bringing the Kingdom of Dopeness to Milano is just the kick in the rear the city’s fashion week needs…then again, maybe it’s not.

Hova Plays Hooky

Jay Z and Beyonce

A shade-throwing Taylor Swift, an N’ Sync reunion, and glitzy grillz are just a few of the things we saw at MTV’s 2013 Video Music Awards last night. But perhaps the biggest shocker was the absence of hip-hop’s king and queen, Jay-Z and Beyoncé (though the pair reportedly stepped out for the after-party at the Dream Downtown’s Ph-D). While we’re a bit surprised that the two didn’t turn up to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center—the home of Jay-Z’s Brooklyn Nets—we can appreciate the fact that Miley’s live twerking demonstration was no Marina Abramovic performance.

Jay-Z Spurs a “Tom Ford” Spike

Is Jay-Z responsible for “what’s spiking” over at Yahoo? The search engine’s trend trackers report that queries for “Tom Ford” have skyrocketed by 155 percent following the debut of Mr. Carter’s new album, Magna Carta… Holy Grail—the track list of which includes a song titled “Tom Ford.” Meanwhile, over at Google…

It’s Her Party, and She’ll Have Dunn if She Wants To

A still from Jessie J's new video, It's My Party

The music video for Jessie J’s new single, It’s My Party, features an animated cameo from Jourdan Dunn. We’re guessing the catwalker needed a dance break from her cooking show on Jay-Z’s YouTube channel. Well Dunn.
