Surprisingly, Kanye West was in a really good mood. So much so, he snapped a picture with the paparazzi! Peep Ye posing it up with a photog and pics of LaLa Anthony getting ready to cheer on her man Carmelo Anthony for the Knicks’ home opener inside….
Well someone was in a good mood yesterday. While making his shopping rounds in NYC (sans his wife and baby Nori), Kanye West was spotted leaving his hotel when a photog in an interesting sweatshirt caught his eye.
Kanye was so intrigued by his sweatshirt that he stopped for a photo-op with the photog! Now…we all know this is a big deal. Ye has had many not-so-nicerun-ins with the paparazzi. In one instance, he and the photog were involved in a scuffle as Ye attempted to take his camera. Paramedics were called...it was just a big mess. But now, it seems he's playing nice.
Not only did he pose it up with the photog, he stopped to snap a pic with fans as well.
But before the "Heartless" rapper took off in a cab....
He had to play paparazzi himself! Kanye was so fascinated by the young man's D9 Reserve crew neck sweatshirt that he copped a few pics of his own, snapping photos with his cell phone. Guess the fashion head got inspired.
Then shook hands before he rode away. Nice!
Also in NYC....
The NBA 2014-2015 season has officially kicked off. Which means, celebs sitting courtside to watch their favorite players go hard in the paint.
And in true supportive wife fashion, LaLa Anthony stepped out last night to cheer on her husband Carmelo Anthony as he and his team went head-to-head against the Chicago Bulls. She kept is stylish in an all black sweater dress paired with black knee high boots as she walked inside Madison Square Garden for the Knicks home opener.
Unfortunately, the Knicks stumbled in their first game and were beat by the Bulls, 104-80. Tonight, the Knicks take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in LeBron James’ first NBA game since returning home. They will battle it out at the Quicken Loans Arena in Akron, tipping off at 8pm ET.
One of the hardest working couples in the industry was spotted leaving the office late last night. Check out Beyoncé and Jay Z making an exit inside...
With Beyoncé's new TopShop partnership announcement and a rumored Carter collabo album in the works, there's plenty of office work to do. The "Drunk In Love" twosome were spotted leaving the Parkwood Entertainment office in Manhattan last night.
Bey served up a 70's vibe with a striped jumpsuit and platform nude sandals. And her new Farrah Fawcett style wiggery.
Rihanna's red (in this case, black) carpet skills are pretty much perfect. Or, as the kids say, on fleek. Check out the "Pour It Up" singer flashing her flawless goodies at last night's amfAR event in head to toe Tom Ford inside...
Last night at Milk Studios in Hollywood, Rihanna brought her girls, her legs and everything else to the yard for one of her sexiest red carpet looks yet. And it didn't mater that it was for charity:
For the 2014 amfAR LA Inspiration Gala, Rih rocked a white cut-out, super high split gown featuring an embellished bra (that covered up just enough) from the Tom Ford Spring 2015 collection. And she topped off her look with Tom Ford metallic ankle wrap platform sandals...to match her nipple jewels of course.
She did her designer friend right by rocking the look like only she can. Rihanna tweeted before the event:
Tonight I’m presenting the #amfARInspiration Award to my friend @Tom_Ford. His commitment to @amfAR is truly inspirational.
Leave it to Rih to give the look even more of a punch with the sexy thigh high stockings.
Chick sat next to Justin Timberlake and didn't leave empty handed. The event was a fundraiser as well, and she clearly took it seriously. VOGUE UK dished on her expensive auction haul saying:
She paid $35,000 for a pair of Harry Winston diamond link earrings featuring 72 diamonds set in platinum, and $100,000 on the photograph "Elizabeth Taylor at the Eden Roc" by Willy Rizzo, signed and numbered by the artist.
The MAC spokeswoman had some fun with Tom, and presented him with his award.
During her speech, Rihanna gushed about her long time designer friend and his talent with both clothing design and giving back:
"Everyone looks good in Tom Ford. Throughout his career, Tom has been committed to giving back to the community. He has been, and continues to be, a dedicated supporter of the fight against AIDS. He's been a generous friend to amfAR for many years, and is a loyal supporter of the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Over the past 20 years, Tom Ford has been honored with every major fashion award there is. Tonight, we honor him both for his incredible talent and for what he stands for. We honor him for inspiring us with his creative genius, his leadership, his integrity, and his generosity. We honor him for doing good while making us look good."
Check out a few videos from the carpet below with Rihanna and Tom, also featuring host of the night Gwyneth Paltrow, Miley Cyrus, and Kenneth Cole:
