Abloh’s Spring-Summer 2022 collection was debuted during the presentation that took place on an elevated platform built outside the Brutalist Miami Marine Stadium.

Several celebs were in attendance for the show including estranged spouses/Virgil’s close friends Kim and Kanye who sat front row alongside their daughter North.

Also spotted were Quavo, Kid Cudi, and Offset who modeled in the presentation…

Gunna…

and Pharrell Williams.

During the show, Virgil was honored in several ways including via a monumental statue…

and via a hot-air balloon and paper planes that tied into one of Virgil’s ideologies.

His creative collaborator Anders Christian Madsen noted that the designer wanted people to liberate themselves from “the prejudices society puts in our heads growing up.”

“He wanted to imagine he could fly,” said Madsen.

“Paper planes and balloons were symbols of the ideology Virgil referred to as “boyhood”: childhood objects loaded with ideas of possibility, opportunity, and hope. “Limitations,” he once wrote to me, “are manmade.” He literally didn’t believe in impossibility. Before our meetings, he’d ask me to read everything from Kierkegaard to Mann and Berger,” wrote the creative collaborator on Instagram.

Virgil wanted people to stop treating each other according to how they look, or where they grew up, or what their job is. He truly and purely approached the world like that. He’d often ask me to open his texts with words like “imagine” or “picture” or “what if.”

 

The show closed with the late designer’s voice as he read a quote about making the best of the brevity of life.

“There’s no limit … ,” Abloh was heard saying. “Life is so short that you can’t waste even a day subscribing to what someone thinks you can do versus knowing what you can do.”

 

“Virgil Was Here” was then illuminated in the sky.

 

 

R.I.P. Virgil Abloh.

Brittany Matthews is one proud fiancee! After Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs’ jaw-dropping win over the Bills in overtime, Brittany popped a bottle of champagne and sprayed it over the crowd!

Brittany Matthews was up in her suite supporting her man Patrick Mahomes during the epic Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills game on January 23. When the Chiefs beat the Bills in overtime, Brittany took a bottle of champagne and sprayed it over the roaring crowd below her. She posted a video of the celebratory moment on Instagram and wrote, “Chiefs Kingdom, YALL ROCK.” On Twitter, she wrote, “Oops.”

Patrick’s fiancee looked chic in a bright yellow coat. She repped the Chiefs’ color from head to toe. Underneath the coat, she rocked a mustard-colored turtleneck and yellow pants. Her hair was styled in big waves for the big game.

She reposted the video on her Instagram Story and told fans, “To all the fans who said do this, I freaking love y’all. #chiefskingdom is the best fans in the world!!!!”

The January 23 match-up was one of the most exciting games in NFL history. The Bills took a 3-point lead over the Chiefs with only 13 seconds left in the game. In those 13 seconds, Patrick completed two passes to allow the Chiefs to tie the game with a 49-yard field goal.

The game went into overtime, and that’s when things shifted for the Chiefs. Patrick threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to Travis Kelse on the first possession overtime to win. This all went down in Arrowhead Stadium, the Chiefs’ home turf, in Kansas City, Missouri. Needless to say, the crowd went wild over this truly amazing win.

After this AFC Divisional win, the Chiefs move on to face the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game. If Patrick and the Chiefs make it to the Super Bowl, they won’t be having a rematch against Tom Brady and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tampa Bay lost against the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Divisional game. Patrick’s already got one Super Bowl ring, and he’s looking to get another!

Spice Girls ‘to reunite at Brooklyn Beckham’s wedding’

The Spice Girls are set to be reunited at Brooklyn Beckham‘s wedding.

The 22-year-old star is poised to marry actress Nicola Peltz in Florida in April, and Victoria Beckham has invited her former bandmates – Mel B, Melanie C, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner – to the lavish event.

A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: “It was a lovely invitation and the girls are all excited to attend.

“It will be the first time they have all been together socially for some time, so they are looking forward to the chance to really catch up.

“While Nicola has opted to wear two Valentino dresses on the big day, they will have their pick of Victoria Beckham dresses if they like.”

Last Year, Melanie C revealed that the Spice Girls are “constantly” talking about touring again.

The iconic pop group reunited for a series of shows in 2019, and Melanie admitted she’s keen for another reunion to take place in the coming years.

She shared: “This has to happen. We talk about it constantly. We did the shows in 2019, the plan was to continue on.

“Of course, the world has been in such turmoil, but the plan beyond this is to get out there when it’s safe, when we can do it. What’s tough is there’s so many artists that want to get out there, and there’s only so many venues, so we’re all kind of queuing up going, ‘I want to! I want to!’”

Melanie starred alongside Mel B, Emma and Geri for the comeback shows in 2019.

And the pop star revealed she’s also been “chipping away” at Victoria to join them on stage, after she previously opted out of the reunion tour.

She said: “We would love to have her back onstage. In all honesty, I think it’s gonna happen. At some point, I think Posh Spice will be back onstage.”

Khloe Kardashian Stuns In Tight Blue Dress For Gorgeous Pics After Tristan’s Scandal

Tristan Thompson, who? Khloe Kardashian looked unbothered by her ex’s latest public scandal as she posed for a new series of photos on Instagram on Jan. 23.

Khloe Kardashian served up quite a look to end her Sunday this week! On Jan. 23, the reality star took to Instagram to share a new gallery of photos of herself, where came to slay in a skintight, baby blue dress. The long-sleeved ensemble hugs every inch of Khloe’s figure, and she paired the look with some snakeskin booties and her blonde hair in curls, pulled back into a tight ponytail. Khloe is seated on Louis Vuitton luggage and wearing sunglasses in one photo, as well. “Material Girl,” she captioned the set of images.

For the second half of the pics, she steps outside and takes the sunglasses off to pose with the sunlight in the background. These pics show just the top half of Khloe’s body, with her silver chain necklace also on full display. Her glam is also more visible in the last three pics, with dramatic eyelashes and a light pink lip to complete the look.

Khloe appears to be moving on from the latest drama surrounding her ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, who is also the father of her daughter, True Thompson, 3. Khloe got back together with Tristan at the beginning of 2021, nearly two years after he cheated on her by kissing Jordyn Woods at a party. However, they split just months later. Although they were co-parenting nicely for most of 2021, things fell apart at the end of the year when news broke that Tristan had allegedly fathered a child with another woman, Maralee Nichols.

The baby was born in December, and in January, a paternity test confirmed that Tristan was the baby’s father. In court documents, Tristan confirmed that he had an affair with Maralee in March, which is when he was still dating Khloe. Maralee also produced evidence to reveal that her relationship with Tristan had actually gone on for several months before the March hookup, as well.

Khloe has not publicly commented on the situation. However, after all of Tristan’s past indiscretions, she has always maintained that she wants the basketball player to be in True’s life. It’s unclear if the situation will be address on the Kardashian family’s upcoming Hulu show, which is set to premiere sometime this year.
