President Obama’s youngest daughter Sasha Obama, 12, sparked a buying frenzy on the ASOS website when she wore a ASOS unicorn sweater during a basketball game in Maryland on Sunday. The sweater sold out within minutes. And as of today (Friday) the item is still sold out.
A loyal reader wondered what socialite Kim Kardashian wore to Jay Z’s party last night. According to Kim, she rocked a pair of Saint Laurent distressed jeans with chain detail. The shredded, tattered and torn, Saint Laurent’s skinny jeans are layered with chain embellishments that add to its punk-chic vibe, according to fashion designer Riccardo Tisci’s blog. The jeans retail for $1,500. But if you can’t splurge a car note on a pair of jeans that look like they belong in a dumpster, you can purchase the cheaper version (without the chains) for $675 here.

Thanks to loyal reader and fashionista Pamela Andrade for informing me that Jay Z was wearing a Sidian, Ersatz & Vanes Chambray color block button down shirt — not a Celine shirt as I incorrectly stated in this post.
Lounge singer Beyonce strut her stuff on the set of her latest music video in New York City this week. The 32-year-old Creole singer wore a vinyl ox blood trench coat from the Burberry Prorsum collection, according to Red Carpet Fashion. Ox blood? What the voodoo hail?

Don’t laugh. This is how wealthy people with disposable incomes dress when they hire stylists to keep them up-to-date on the latest fashion craze.

A young college student discovered that racism is alive and well in high end retailing. Trayvon Christian is suing Barney’s Department store and the NYPD for violating his rights after the retailer accused him of credit card fraud.
Christian, 19, went to the Madison Avenue Barney’s in NY to purchase a Ferragamo belt after spotting his favorite rapper, Juelz Santana, wearing the expensive accessory. Christian saved his money by working extra shifts at his part-time job. He was finally able to purchase the luxury $349 Salvatore Ferragamo belt, which he paid for with a debit card in his name.
