Fashion's first couple stars in Balmain's Spring/Summer 2015 menswear campaign, and in the first, super-sexy campaign image released today on Monday, Kim is just centimeters away from kissing 'Ye!
In this first pic from #TheBalmainLove campaign, photographed by Mario Sorrentini, Kanye models, a black blazer from the line's Spring/Summer collection. Kim also slips into the line, wearing a black cut-out dress very similar to the one sister Kendall Jenner modeled at Balmain's show during Paris Fashion Week.

"For this Menswear campaign, I wanted to capture a moment of love. Kim and Kanye are style icons and friends," Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing said in a statement. "It is an honour to have them in this Balmain campaign. Together, they represent love, beauty and diversity—they are the new modernity. This is more than a campaign, it expresses something beyond clothes—it is a celebration of love and friendship. This is a new statement for Balmain."

Even their beautiful daughter, North West also has some designer threads from the line. Back in October, Kim Instagrammed a picture of a thoughtful gift from Balmain's creative director: Three custom blazers to match her mama!

The Pantone gods have officially spoken.  She’s sophisticated, she’s 90s grunge-inspired, and she’s 2015’s Color Of The Year. (Drum roll, please.) Allow us to introduce you to…
The new year’s hottest color may remind you of that wine stain on your favorite blouse . Marsala,” is an earthy deep red hue that looks amazeballs on every skin tone.  The rustic, earthy, red-brown color has already taken over the red carpet (see above), and we have a hunch that it’s about to take over your entire wardrobe, too (lip color totally included).

How will you incorporate this into your own wardrobe in the coming year? Share your looks with us.

Rock Your Ankara all year long.

There is a big misconception out there that Ankara is meant only for Spring/Summer, I beg to differ. I think it all depends on how you wear it. For example just yesterday I wore an Ankara high-waisted pant  but with leggings in the bottom to protect me from the chills of the winter. Here is the picture below and of others also rocking the trend too, Wear Your Ankara in Winter too. ENJOY!!!

 And Others.....
