Jay Z has been feeling all sorts of pressure to cut ties with Barneys after multiple instances of racial profiling by the retailer have come to light.
However, Hova isn’t ready to kill his holiday collection yet since it will only hurt the beneficiaries of his charity.
After the rapper released his own statement about the matter over the weekend, Barneys CEO Mark Lee responded to Jay and apologized for the trouble.
Kanye West has been putting a lot of people in the fashion world on blast lately, and his latest victim is none other than Louis Vuitton!
Despite the fact that 'Ye interned and designed $800 shoes for the fashion house back in 2009, the "Louis Vuitton Don" thinks their merchandise is far too expensive and sends a negative message to his followers.
Kanye explained to Power 106 on Monday:
Rita Ora is known for mixing things up in the fashion world, so it was only a matter of time before she started designing!
Hot on the heels of her DKNY campaign and partnership with Rimmel London, the singer has signed a $2.4 million contract with Adidas to create kicks for the brand.
According to reports, Jeremy Scott helped her seal the deal after Rita talked about how much she would love to design just two weeks ago.
Wow, that was fast!
Of course, it probably didn't hurt that Rita's a longtime fan of Adidas either.
Would U buy a pair of Rita's shoes???
HOVA has spoken!
Last week, Jay Z came under fire for partnering with Barneys after the department store was accused of racial profiling.
The rapper was surprisingly quiet about the situation, that is until this weekend when Beyoncé's hubby finally released a statement regarding the matter at hand and the reason it took him so long to respond.
Jay wrote on his website:
Ugh, racial profiling is SO not fashionable!
Barneys of all retailers should know that, and yet multiple reports have surfaced of black customers being arrested for buying expensive merchandise when security and staff think they don’t look like "Barneys shoppers".
The situation has sparked so much outrage that one Jay Z fan has launched a petition asking the rapper to sever ties with department store before launching his holiday collection!
Derick Bowers wrote on his Change.org petition titled "Shawn Carter aka Jay Z: End all partnerships with Barneys New York":
Ooh la la!
January Jones seems as excited for the upcoming Isabel Marant for H&M collection as the rest of the fashion-loving world!
The actress was present at the launch of the line at the Tennis Club de Paris in, um, Paris on Thursday decked out in duds from the collab.
Her print pants and sheer lace top with black bra visible underneath were Parisian chic in every way, and her messy ponytail perfectly represented the beautifully undone look that French women love so much.
This collection is going to be flying off the shelves and landing straight on eBay like no collection ever before!

We can't quite decide if it's good or bad for an actress to have her husband direct her in a commercial.
On the one hand, he'll make sure she looks good. But on the other, his vision might clash with hers.
Kate Bosworth's already worked on the Big Sur movie set with her director hubby Michael Polish, so we're sure shooting this commercial for her winter collection (her second!) with Topshop was a walk in the park!
Though we have no idea why her hair is soaking wet, we do like what we see — especially all the crinkled foil-looking tops! So wackily wonderful!
But do Kate and Michael make beautiful fashion ad babies together? You'll have to PRESS PLAY (above) to find out!
