Are Kanye and Kim a Match Made in Fashion Heaven?

We’re all still tripping a little bit over Kanye’s self-professed love for Kim Kardashian on his new track “Theraflu.” But while most people are still having a bit of a WTF moment, this relationship could actually be good news—for fashion at least.

Say what you want about Kim Kardashian, but there is one thing no one can argue against when it comes to this girl, and that’s her gid fashion sense. She looks amazing in whatever she wears, and whether she’s seen in a staged photoshoot or caught off guard by paparazzi, you can be sure her hair, nails, makeup, outfit and shoes will all be on point.

Which brings me to Kanye...

Yeezy’s personal style is actually pretty hot, and he sets as many trends for men as Kim does for women. Remember the sweater vest, backpack look he had every man on campus rocking back in 2004? Since he’s dropped that scruffy 80s look he had going on around the 808s & Heartbreak time, he’s back in our fashion good graces—Watch the Throne concert kilt aside. But when it comes to his women’s fashion line, he’s still leaving a lot to be desired.

The DW clothing was revealed at Paris Fashion Week in 2011 to a less-than-thrilled audience who felt the rapper had absolutely no clue what he was doing when it came to dressing the ladies. Last month, the rookie designer showed off his Fall/Winter 2012 collection, and although critics still weren’t jumping up and down with excitement, the reviews were much better than the debut. And guess who was right there on the scene rocking his latest wardrobe creations, including the $6,000 knit Guiseppe heels most of the models couldn’t walk in? That’s right. Kim Kardashian. See where we’re going with this?

Not only is Kim a fashion icon, she got her start in the business as a stylist and has two clothing lines under her belt: K-Dash on QVC and the Kardashian Kollection at Sears, not to mention the Dash boutique. Do you think 'Ye is going to let all of the quality time they’re spending go by without at least picking his boo’s brain for a little fashion advice?

Considering Kanye needs something to take his high-end women’s label to the next level, and Kim’s clothing lines have been released through major retailers that any woman can purchase from, a fashion collaboration between these two could be just what the industry needs. The air still isn’t clear on just how romantically involved these two are, but a KimYe fashion line or a DW wardrobe revamp à la Kim K. is a relationship I don’t mind seeing these two take part in.

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.

Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband, Gabe Solis, Dies After Battle With Cancer

Gabe Solis, the ex-husband of Trina Braxton, lost his battle with cancer, Thursday (Dec. 20),  TMZ reports. He was 43.

Solis passed away at his home in Texas, surrounded by friends and family, according to the outlet. No official details have been released about his passing.

Solis had reportedly been keeping his cancer battle private. His death came as a shock to his loved ones. On Friday (Dec. 21), Braxton seemingly mourned the loss of her ex-husband with a cryptic Instagram meme reading, “I need a hug..E bottle of wine.”

The former couple tied the knot in 2003, and appeared together on previous seasons of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values. Despite finalizing their divorce in 2015, Braxton and Solis confronted lingering issues from their marriage during an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier in the year.

Braxton has since moved on to a new relationship, but remained friends with Solis.
