Kim Kardashian-West turns 40 today (Oct. 21). Did you know 43% of women, aged 25-35, are influenced by what Kim wears?

In fact, 7 in 10 women say seeing a celebrity wear vintage or a recycled look encourages them to shop second-hand.

Last year, the Guardian reported 64% of women were willing to buy pre-owned pieces and, it is thought by 2028, 13% of the clothes in women’s wardrobes are likely to be second-hand.

Mabel's new Kangol clothing line is inspired by her mum, rapper Neneh Cherry's early '90s style.

The "Don't Call Me Up" British R&B singer teamed up with Kangol and retailer H&M for the new line - acting as a co-collaborator and the face of the new collection from the streetwear brand.

Lia Toby/WENN.com

Speaking to Vogue about her decision to team up with the firm, Mabel explains she was inspired by some of the Kangol outfits worn by her mum, who scored chart success with hits including "Buffalo Stance" and "Kisses on the Wind," as a pop star in the late 1980s and early '90s.
 

"I remember my mum wearing Kangol when I was growing up and, you know, thinking in general that she was not just a great mum but also such an inspiration – such an icon to have in the house," Mabel explains. "I was very conscious that she wasn't a regular mum, she was a cool mum!"

WENN.com

Stylish Neneh, now 56, is seen wearing a red Kangol cap and sheepskin duster in London in 2001.

Mabel inherited some of her mum's old clothes, with Neneh passing on her outfits from her younger years to her daughter - but the 24-year-old hasn't bagged any of her mum's Kangol streetwear attire yet, as her mum still looks great in it.

"I have a couple of pieces that she wore when she was my age, which is such an honour," Mabel reveals. "She still has amazing style, but, back then, her wardrobe in like, the '90s to the early 2000s was unreal. I got this '90s Alaia bodysuit that I literally live for; it looks so perfectly tailored and still so fresh. No streetwear yet because she still wears and looks amazing in all that stuff – I'm sure that at some point I will (inherit it)."

WENN.com

Neneh is pictured performing at the Big Chill Festival in Herefordshire, England in 2011.

Speaking about the inspiration behind her Kangol designs, Mabel adds: "I wanted to make something comfy but still wearable; you could dress them up or down. That’s always really important to me, being busy, and quite often having to go from day-to-night, and (always) on-the-go."

"I wish I could dress like A$AP Rocky," Pattinson tells British GQ. "He just has serious style. We have been to quite a few different fittings together and I will see the craziest thing and really want to wear it, but I'd look like a total moron.

Pattinson hates a lot of his old red carpet looks, but his fashion choice for the London premiere in Harry Potter & The Goblet Of Fire in 2005 was the worst or the worst.

"I was wearing leather trousers with these cowboy boots and a velvet jacket," he recalls. "I mean, it literally looked like a kid had gone into a dressing-up box."

Question: Do you prefer a man who dresses like Robert or A$AP?

Deon Cole would like the opportunity to explain the effeminate Gucci outfit he wore to the 51st Annual NAACP Image Awards this past weekend.

Cole was ridiculed and insulted in every way possible after he wore a blue crushed velvet suit with bell bottom pants to the awards show.

The visual was too much for some women to handle. The men took Cole's attire personally - as if his attire was an affront to their manhood.

Cole has been receiving death threats on social media.

Cole took to Instagram on Monday to explain that he will address the controversy on Tuesday, Feb. 25.

Cole, 48, is an actor, comedian best known for his role on the TV sitcom Black-ish.

Questions: What do you think he will say? How can he explain this to your satisfaction? Are you ready to concede another masculine Black man to the other side?

Billy Porter toned down his usually flamboyant red carpet style for the 92nd Annual Oscar Awards held at L.A.'s Dolby Theatre on Feb 9, 2020. The 50-year-old actor wore a Giles Deacon Couture gold feather top with a printed floor length "Cupola gown" skirt. It was an understated look from last year's head-turning Christian Siriano tuxedo dress, which caused a commotion when Porter wore it to a taping of an upcoming episode of Sesame Street. Everyone is in agreement that Porter's feminine attire is inappropriate for minor children.

A reporter shared a funny incident that took place at the 2020 Grammy Awards on Sunday. Apparently a female celebrity's dress was so hideous that someone made a loud comment about it.

According to Blind Gossip, a famous actress clapped back when a rude guest made a comment about her ill-fitting dress.

"Our reporter was getting ready to interview the celebrity. Her husband was a few feet away talking to someone else. It was so noisy that you really couldn't hear jack unless you were close to someone and even then you practically had to shout.

"We were about to do the countdown wen we heard this woman nearby commenting on celebrity's outfit. She obviously didn't like the dress. She was yelling to the person next to her. 'Oh my god! Look at that! What the hell is se wearing? It's hideous! It doesn't make any sense!"

It was noisy, but apparently not noisy enough. The celebrity heard her and turned around to address the woman directly.

"I know, it's gorgeous, isn't it? Who designed YOUR outfit?"

That shut the woman up. The celebrity began the interview as if nothing happened.

Can you guess the name of the female celebrity?

Billy Porter turned heads when he attended the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards wearing a long white feather train attached to his white tuxedo jacket. The train was so long it required an attendant to carry it for Porter.

The flamboyant 50-year-old virgo looked stunning and owned the red carpet. Porter is known for his extravagant one-off outfits. At the 2019 Met Gala he wore a gold gilded bodysuit and he was carried in on a golden litter by six muscular shirtless men.

At the 2019 Oscars Porter wore a fabulous Christian Siriano gown with a matching tuxedo jacket.

TIME magazine asked the former R&B singer for the inspiration behind his clothes.

"When you're an actor, the clothes are part of the character, the clothes help create what the character becomes, so when I bring that into this space I can do anything because I know what the character is," he said.

"You must wear the clothes, the clothes must not wear you," Porter added. "That's a theater thing - you have to become the character or else you ain't no good!"

Porter's stylist, Sam Ratelle, said the concept of fashion as theater is something he shares with Porter.

"Billy and I both come from the theater community, so this is costume design for me on the highest scale," said Ratelle who is pictured with Porter at the Golden Globes.

"The red carpet is pretty much a stage, it's theater. It's just a different stage and a different way of expressing yourself. Billy allowing me to direct him is just such a gift because he's so open and willing to do so many things, so for me, that's really a joy."
