Who Looks Best in Loubi Queen Sandals: Kerry Washington or Winnie Harlow?

Kerry Washington was a mesmerizing beauty on the red carpet at the 2018 Tony Awards held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

She looked stunning in the same ‘Loubi Queen’ shoes that Winnie Harlow wore to the 2018 MTV VMAs. Who do you think looked best in these statement heels?

The 41-year-old ‘Scandal’ actress sizzled in a silver lamé Atelier Versace jumpsuit featuring side cutouts, crystal embellishments, and a floor-sweeping train. She was among one of the many presenters who hit the stage during the evening’s ceremony.

“He’s just always been a reoccurring person in my life and we always have this creative energy, where we play each other songs and give each other opinions,” Iggy told BUILD about Tyga, the former boyfriend of Kylie Jenner and Blac Chyna. “It always seemed like we were meant to collaborate and we just hadn’t.”

“He kept telling people that I know that he had a song idea for me and him and I was like… uh he’s lying. No he doesn’t. He just wants to be around me,” she continued. “But he really did have a song idea! We have a great time together. I really enjoyed our vibe in the studio. We stayed in there enough [time] that people thought we had some sort of romance going on. I hope to do more collaborations with him. I think we work and our energies and sound kind of work, it’s a platonic chemistry.”

4 Men’s Shoes With Velcrolike Straps 

Whether you have dexterity problems or are just feeling lazy, help is on the way from today’s shoe manufacturers. Increasingly, footwear brands are forgoing traditional laces in favor of hook-and-loop straps that make putting your shoes on a hassle-free experience.

The fastening system consists of two fabric strips — one side features small hooks, while the other is designed with small loops. When the two sides are pressed together, they lock to form a strong, temporary bond.

While Velcro is a popular version widely used in a range of products, there are lots of options on the market that mimic the hook-and-loop Velcro closure system.

It used to be that footwear with these easy-to-use fasteners was typically found on athletic, outdoor and children’s styles. But fashion has embraced this type of utilitarian closure system, and these days, hook-and-loop straps appear on a range of styles as both a functional and style device.

Here, FN offers men a wardrobe of styles from Adidas, Vans and more featuring this type of closure.

 

1. Propet Travelfit Strap

An athletics-inspired style is done in a breathable mesh upper with cushioned tongue and collar for enhanced comfort at sensitive points.

2. Adidas Powerlift 3.1

A weightlifting shoe is detailed in a lightweight synthetic upper for ankle support and durability, mesh collar and tongue for breathability and ADIWEAR outsole for durability.

3. Gola Tourist Velcro

Triple Velcro-close straps make this casual suede sneaker the perfect travel companion, dressed up or down.

4. Vans Old Skool V

This classic skate style has a slimmed-down profile, a padded collar and footbed, and a rubber outsole with signature waffle tread for enhanced grip.

5. DSquared2 Hiking Boot

Meant for urban outings, this fashion hiker is equipped with faux fur on the upper, a super-thick treadlike outsole and a double lacing system for a secure fit.

Adidas Falcon W Becomes First Product to Launch on Snapchat Show

Fans hoping to purchase the newest version of the Adidas Originals Falcon W should head to Snapchat.

The latest iteration of the retro-inspired kick launches on “Fashion 5 Ways,” a show that premieres today on Snapchat’s Discover page. Fans of sneakers will be able to make a purchase by using a swipe-up feature within the show — marking the first time that users can buy a product directly from a Snapchat show.

For now, the Falcon W will be exclusively available to “5 Ways” viewers within the app, with an nationwide release to come at an unspecified later date. Adidas has also placed video ads to run within the show’s premiere.

As Snap Inc. looks to venture further into e-commerce, “5 Ways” offers a look at how Snapchat can use brand integration to monetize the platform. Although brand integration within a Snap show is new, brands have been selling their wares using the native commerce tools within the app, with celebrities like Ariana Grande touting merchandise through Snap.

“5 Ways” is produced by Thumb Candy Media, the same minds behind “Nail the Look,” one of the most popular Snapchat shows to date. A brand-new show, “5 Ways” will center around women exploring creative ways to wear fashion staples, such as sneakers.

For fans who do purchase the Falcon W, on-demand fulfillment service Darkstore will make U.S. deliveries by Sept. 6.

Nike Weighs In on the French Open’s Ban of Serena Williams’ Catsuit

Nike proved that a simple tweet can go a long way toward showing its athletes support.

The Swoosh made a succinct, yet powerful statement, putting its weight behind Serena Williams after the French Open announced that her black catsuit would no longer be permissible on the court: “You can take the superhero out of her costume, but you can never take away her superpowers.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The suit ban at Roland Garros sparked social media outrage, Twitter users reacted positively to Nike’s message.

“Wow, Nike that’s deep, didn’t expect such but thank you guys… With such an attitude we shall defeat the spirit of oppression,” one fan wrote.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

“You are always outdoing yourself Nike! Always socially relevant,” another replied.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The ban was announced by French Tennis Federation president Bernard Giudicelli, who explained that players’ outfits would be limited because “sometimes we’ve gone too far.”

For Williams, the catsuit stood as a symbol of ability to fight back into the tennis realm after being sidelined by pregnancy and post-birth complications — and it also played a functional purpose, helping to maintain Williams’ blood circulation through matches.

The French Open will not be alone in restricting players’ dress choices, as athletes are restricted to wearing whites at Wimbledon. In her first U.S. Open match on Monday, Williams will wear a look created by Nike collaborator and Off-White designer Virgil Abloh.

Cardi B Glistens in Teensy Disco Shorts and Soaring Sandals

There’s no doubt about it: Cardi B can have her pick of designer duds.

But when it comes to clothes, Cardi often chooses budget-friendly options — especially styles from Fashion Nova, the Instagram-famous brand that counts her as part of an influencer roster that includes Kylie Jenner and Adrienne Bailon.

For an Instagram shot posted yesterday, the 25-year-old selected a sparkly Fashion Nova set that sells for $59.99. Dubbed the “Disco Nights Set,” the glamorous outfit consists of a long-sleeved button up shirt and teensy shorts, both available in a festive gold colorway.

Despite her willingness to incorporate fast fashion pieces into her wardrobe, Cardi likes to splurge on footwear. The Christian Louboutin aficionado mixed high and low with her look, choosing Giuseppe Zanotti’s Harmony sandals that retail for $845. The luxurious shoes feature three straps, a black patent leather upper and a 4.7-inch heel.

Today, the new mom took to Instagram again, this time teasing her first project since the birth of daughter Kulture — a collaboration with Selena Gomez, Ozuna and DJ Snake.

Cardi shared a snap of her and Gomez hanging out on the set of the new music video for the upcoming single.

“The sweetest girl in the world @selenagomez ❤,” she captioned the image.

Victoria Beckham Posts Photo of 7-Year Old Daughter Harper in Stilettos — and Gets Mixed Reactions on Instagram

Victoria Beckham loves her stilettos, and it appears that she is passing on her high heel obsession to daughter Harper.

Beckham posted a photo to her Instagram account yesterday showing the Beckhams posing with Gordon Ramsey and his family. While the image was meant as a birthday post for Gordon’s wife, Tana, many of Beckhams’ followers honed in on Harper’s shoes.

Instagram Photo

The 7-year-old is shown in the image wearing a red dress and high-heeled ankle-strap sandals as she gets a piggy-back ride from one of the Ramseys.

“These heels are blatantly not dress up heels, nor are they her mothers. They’ve been purposely designed and made for a little girl’s feet. Wrong,” one fan weighed in.

Others expressed concern that wearing stilettos at such a young age could lead to back problems later in life.

Still, other Instagram users wrote back in defense of the Beckhams’ choice to allow Harper to wear high heels, saying that she was probably wearing them as part of a dress-up game and not for an extended period of time.

“I just heard about this heel thing and I think it’s dumb. She’s a little girl wearing heels to a birthday party. It’s not like she’s wearing a mini skirt and a crop top with it. People need to lay off and let the little one have fun,” one user wrote.

“Which girl doesn’t love high heels at this age? We all wore mom’s high heels to play so why not have your own?” another commented.

Regardless, Beckham took to Instagram the next day to post another image of Harper — and in that picture, the elementary schooler was sporting flat rain boots.

Adidas Unveils Billie Jean King Footwear – as Tennis Legend Rails Against French Open’s New Outfit Policy

Adidas unveiled a limited-edition Billie Jean King sneaker yesterday, made to commemorate the 45th anniversary of King’s famed “Battle of the Sexes” match.

The shoes, which are part of the Speedfactory franchise, feature the iconic blue the then-No. 1 King wore to beat Bobby Riggs in a 1973 exhibition match at the Houston Astrodome — earning $100,000 for her efforts, which were later documented in the 2017 film “Battle of the Sexes.”

Only 300 pairs of the $200 shoes, dubbed the AM4BJK, were made, and they will be available for purchase from Aug. 27 until they sell out. The tongue of the shoes are NFC enabled, allowing fans to digitally authenticate their shoes and determine which pair they’ve picked up.

It’s an honor to have these iconic blue shoes modernized and they will serve as the perfect visual reminder of the importance that we must work together to achieve equality for all, on and off the field of play,” King said in a statement.

Today, the tennis star still sees prejudices within the sport, which she referred to on Twitter, condemning the French Open after the tournament announced that it was changing its outfit policy for female players.

In explanation of the revised policy, French Tennis Federation president Bernard Giudicelli specifically brought up Serena Williams, saying of the tight-fitting catsuit she wore at Roland Garros this summer, “It will no longer be accepted…One must respect the game and the place.”

King turned the tables on Giudicelli — explaining that Williams’ talent was being disrespected through the policy.

The policing of women’s bodies must end. The ‘respect’ that’s needed is for the exceptional talent @serenawilliams⁩ brings to the game. Criticizing what she wears to work is where the true disrespect lies,” King tweeted.

Others have also poured on their support for Williams, including Nike, the brand for which she serves as ambassador, which tweeted, “You can take the superhero out of her costume, but you can never take away her superpowers.”

Kylie Jenner Keeps It Casual in Travis Scott Merch and Chunky Sneakers

Kylie Jenner’s been posting up a storm on Instagram lately.

And the newly minted 21-year-old kept the streak going with a sultry post today, sharing two images of herself in a casual ensemble posed on the porch.

Instagram Photo

In the snaps, Jenner sports a leopard-print tanktop with a pair of Travis Scott sweatpants, which read “Astroworld” on one leg and “Wish You Were Here” on the other.

Jenner and Scott have been dating for more than a year and have a child together, daughter Stormi. So, it comes as no surprise that the reality star would wear sweats in support of the rapper.

As for her footwear, Jenner selected chunky Adidas Originals by Alexander Wang trainers. The makeup mogul has worn looks by Wang often in recent months, even accompanying the designer to the Met Gala. And with both Adidas Yeezy designer Kanye West and Adidas Originals ambassador Kendall Jenner in the family, the athletic wear giant is a logical choice for Jenner.

The particular kicks she chose are the AW Turnout Trainer Sneakers, which are suede and nylon canvas low-tops in black with a sculpted rubber midsole. The on-trend shoes retail for $250 and are available for purchase now.
