Hova Takeover

Last winter was all about the hoody, and UK brand Artful Dodger had the game zipped up. Thursday November 8, it was announced that Jay-Z in partnership with Iconix Brand Group Inc purchased the high-end street brand for $15 million cash.

"Artful Dodger is an incredible brand with a lot of room for growth and Scott Langton is a visionary designer," explains Hov. "They represent what's next and new in fashion and we are glad to have both the brand and Scott as a part of our family. Artful Dodger represents the first of many acquisitions that will begin to shape our joint venture with Iconix."

PWC had a chance to get a sneak peak of Dodger's upcoming lines in Las Vegas at MAGIC back in August. Check out a few pix of our excellent Vegas adventure after the jump.

Channeling his inner alien from outerspace, Big Boi, clad head-to-toe in Crooks & Castles, recently hosted his Big Kidz Foundation's charity gala at David Yurman in Lenox Square.

On November 27, Sir Lucious Leftfoot is teaming up with Laced Up sneaker boutique to unveil the Nike Air Force 1 "Solitaire Kicks." The white and aqua patent leather sneakers are dipped in eight karats worth of rare champagne diamonds from India and are valued at $50,000.

I just hope these aren't conflict kicks.

Makeup Sex

Since taking her last stroll through Manhattan in the 2004 series finale, fans have been impatiently waiting for style icon Carrie and her girls' sexcapades to hit the big screen.

Thanks to Sex's resident fashion svengali Patrica Fields, it looks like Carrie will once again be dressing her Manolo size, not her age. And you know what?...I fucking love it.

SWAG ALERT!!: Free 'the sh*t' sticker for anyone who can correctly identify Ms. Bradshaw's shoes in these pics.

Tights & Hose

Out with the leggings and in with the tights. Yes, it's time to retire those leggings that you have desperately made stretch through 4 seasons and pick up a pair of tights. In case you don't remember, in this seasons fall runway shows tights were pretty prominent. Tights were everywhere from your basic blacks of Burberry Prorsum, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Catherine Malandrino to your metallics and more colorful looks: red, orange, green, pale blue, and brown. Of course the bolder more interesting tights will be those thick, mod-inspired opaque or woven and textured tights from the early 90's.

Now to some of us, this fixation with tights is old news. Tights have been around for decades and many celeb stylists have been putting their clients in them. Karla Welch, Nylon Magazine and celebrity stylist admits that "they're such an easy trend to get in on because they make your legs look so incredible. You're going to look much thinner. I've always put my clients in them." One of Karla's clients, Indie singer Feist, "always performs in matching tights" and I think we all love Feist's style.

So there you have it. That's my skinny on tights. Also, on those warmer days don't forget that hose can be worn. I just picked up a few tights from Target the other day to add to my growing collection so now its your turn. Pick your tights today!

We ♥ Smashbox!!!

Just though it would be great to let everyone who, don’t already know (b/c u all should), about one of the hottest cosmetic lines available right now. Smashbox Cosmetics offers an array of different products, and also manages to be cruelty free. They have won the Peta Proggy award and many other awards for providing fly, but animal testing free cosmetics. Smashbox studios is also the home to a modeling agency, production company, clothing line, and also the Mercedes Benz fashion week at smash box studios in Los Angeles, so they are doing a lot to stay on top in the fashion industry. Their most popular products would definitely be the Photo Finish Lipstick, and the Photo Finish Foundation Primer. My top picks would have to be the Sunset Boulevard Fusion Soft Lights bronzer and the Emulsion Lip Exfoliant (sweet and minty!!). They also sell cute Tokidoki kits (another PWC favorite). So make sure you go to Sephora and test out Smashbox cosmetics because you'll be addictive, and it’s always fun to play dress up in Sephora lol!
