Robyn Fenty, better known as Rihanna, joins elite company as the newest billionaire with an estimated $1.7 billion net worth.
I’m addition to Rihanna’s stellar music career, the launch of her Fenty Beauty line in 2017 is what catapulted the singer/entrepreneur into the billionaire stratosphere. The epic milestone puts the Barbados native as the wealthiest female musician in the world and second wealthiest female entertainer, behind Oprah Winfrey.
Fenty Beauty shares a 50-50 joint venture with French luxury goods conglomerate LVMH which is headed by Bernard Arnault, who has just recently jumped ahead of Jeff Bezos as the world’s richest person in the world. The cosmetics line is available online and at LVMH-owned Sephora stores.
“A lot of women felt there were no lines out there that catered to their skin tone. It was light, medium, medium dark, dark. We all know that’s not reality. She was one of the first brands that came out and said, ‘I want to speak to all of those different people.’”
Virgil Abloh’s OFF-WHITE brand and sneaker and sports apparel powerhouse, Nike, have had quite a lucrative relationship starting way back in 2017. Since then, we’ve seen some iconic silhouettes such as OFF-white touches on the Air Force 1, Zoom Fly, Jordan 5, Jordan 4 and more.
Now, for 2021, the partnership keeps the ball rolling with 50 iterations of the OFF-WHITE x Nike Dunk Low.
No release date has been set for the Off-White™ x Nike Dunk Low “The 50” collection as of the release of this post. Nike states that more information will be released soon. Stay tuned for more info.
The USPTO has granted Nike, Inc. official registration certificates for the brand’s iconic, and perhaps most copied silhouette, the Air Jordan 1. Trademarks are in for the Air Jordan 1 in the High, Low and Low SE models which will put an end to unauthorized productions of the shoe.
Bootleggers will now have to pick a different shoe other than anything created by Nike, Inc as the legendary shoe brand has been on top of any shenanigans aimed at tarnishing its reputation.
As reported by Sneaker Law Firm, the Air Jordan 1’s certification means that the silhouette will now be considered a unique intellectual property by the US government. To add, counterfeit companies can no longer just change up the logo or make little alterations here and there as they previously have done.
Travis Scott plans to celebrate his birthday tomorrow (April 30) with the release of his latest sneaker collab with Jordan Brand in the Air Jordan 6 “British Khaki” colorway. This collab will be the second Air Jordan 6 silhouette that the Houston MC has created and pandemonium has already started.
The follow-up to 2016’s Suicide Squad will see some original members as well as introduce some new characters to the team including new fan favorite King Shark who is voiced by Sylvester Stallone.
The Suicide Squad stars Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Idris Elba as Bloodsport, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller and much more.
Welcome to hell — a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and- destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.
