Pharrell Williams got all dressed up to model in Chanel’s new pre-fall campaign. And he’s bringing the fashion forward Irish-inspired looks in an array of fall coats, sweaters and boots. Peep his spread with model Cara Delevingne inside….

Chanel seems to have a thing or two for hit producer Pharrell Williams as he has been tapped to star in the French fashion house’s pre-fall "Paris-Salzburg" collection, alongside model Cara Delevingne and kid model/Karl Lagerfeld’s godson Hudson Kroenig.

Following Chanel’s Paris-Salzburg Métiers d’Art show in both Austria (in December) and NYC (in April), the unveiling of the official ad campaign is underway. And we’re feelin’ the fashion flicks. Shot by Chanel’s head designer and creative director Karl Lagerfeld, P, Cara (and Hudson) show off Chanel’s latest designs, complete with fair isle sweaters, knit coats, and P’s green knee-high lace-up boots.

And this isn’t the first P, Cara, Karl and Hudson have collaborated on a project. Pharrell and Cara served as Karl’s muses in a short Cinderella-inspried film titled Reincarnation. The short film accompanied the CHANEL Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Métiers d’art shows in Austria & NYC. In case you missed the film, you can check it out HERE.

The “Blurred Lines” producer also brought his musical talents to the film, writing the lyrics to the background track, “CC The World." During Chanel’s NYC show, Pharrell and Cara performed “CC The World” in front of fashion lovers like Beyonce.

Nice!

Peep their fashion spread below:

Janet Jackson was seen leaving the Armani Hotel in Milan today.  And she’s gone blonde.

Janet was in town to attend Giorgio’s Armani 40th anniversary dinner reception last night at Nobu. She was accompanied by her husband Wissam Al Mana and a host of A-list guests including Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sophia Loren, Chris Pine and Tina Turner.  Nice1

Last week, Janet "retweeted" a funny "Missing Persons" report about her music career…

Now we gotta ask….is Janet going to return to the music industry?

 

In the Los Angeles area…

 photo jjdid30.jpg

"LAHH LA" stars Omarion and Apryl Jones were spotted leaving an office on Bedford Drive yesterday.

 photo jjm1.jpg

We’re sure that Omarion and Apryl were taking a few meetings now that his music career is hot again.

 photo jjd45_1.jpg 

His song "Post To Be" with Chris Brown and Jhene Aiko is very close to cracking the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100, and let’s face it, it’s been a long time since he had a pop hit. 

He talked to Billboard about the single’s success saying,

"There’s not a lot of DJ’s breaking records these days, it’s only a few cities like Atlanta and New York is one of my biggest supporters as far as being first to play my song. And in order to be on the charts, there has to be a certain level of collectiveness. When I got that phone call from my team and they were like "You’re reaching number one in New York City," which is a big market for me, I was like wow. And that’s something I’ve never done in my career, so I knew that this was going to be a big record. I think that naturally it takes people a little bit of time. Music is so tangible and the radio has to catch up with that but it’s a bit more technical. I feel like just like any real street or club record that blows up first and then the radio plays it, that’s exactly what it was with "Post to Be." I don’t know why that happens with songs."

 

Meanwhile….

On Instagram, O and Apryl shared a new pic of their adorable son Megaa.

During his recent chat with Billboard, Omarion talked about Megaa and how his birth has impacted his career.  "I think the experience of being a father has triple my working value, because as an artist and being a child prodigy and starting as young as I did and seeing different levels and going through different phases of being an artist, I think that my son has just tripled my work now. Now I can just categorize my time…But truthfully, my son has made me selfish and now I truly understand that it’s not about me anymore. It’s about him."

Adorbs!

IT’S OFFICIAL! Trina Braxton’s Divorce From Husband Gabe Solis Is Finalized

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-04-2015

 photo tringa.jpg

It’s done! Trina Braxton is officially divorced from her husband Gabe Solis after filing for divorce in 2013, dismissing the divorce, then re-filing.  Deets inside…

We’ve watched “Braxton Family Values” star Trina Braxton and her now ex-husband Gabriel Adrian-Solis marital issues play out on the show. One minute they’re broken up, then they’re back together all wrapped up in love. But now, they’re officially OVER. Trina is a single lady and Gabe is a single bachelor after their divorce was recently finalized in Georgia, according to TheJasmineBrand.com.

You’ll recall, Trina first pulled the trigger on their uncoupling in 2013, citing the marriage was irretrievably broken. This news came on the heels of cheating allegations where Gabe was supposedly engaged in Internet sex, allegedly with a transvestite. Yikes!

Following those reports, Gabe reached out to TheYBF.com to set the record straight. He told us he never talked to the “woman” in question (despite proof) and that he is NOT into transexuals. He did confirm he has a sex addiction and was going through therapy. Hmph.

In an attempt to salvage his marriage, Gabe filed legal documents in December 2013 "challenging her right to a divorce" by claiming that they were still in love. He wanted to work on reconciling with his estranged wife. And his attempt appeared to have worked because Trina decided to dismiss the divorce filing.

Well…that all went out of the door after Trina re-filed for divorce last October in Gwinnet County. And now, Gwinnett County judge Warren Davis has ruled on the case, ordering a final judgment and decree that Trina and Gabe are now divorced as of April 16th. Since the divorce is finalized, that also means they have reached an agreement on the division of their assets and money. Peep the court docs here.
 

Based on the “BFV” upcoming season trailer, it looks like we’ll get a peek at Trina go through her divorce proceedings and this huge secret she’s been keeping will finally be revealed. Peep the explosive trailer below:

 

 

 

Guess we’ll see it all unfold when "Braxton Family Values" returns for its 5th season May 21st at 9/8c on WE tv.

Rihanna & Chris Brown Handle Snakes + Kanye West, French Montana, Khloe Kardashian & More Party It Up At Travis Scott’s Birthday Party

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-04-2015

 photo trav2.png

Rihanna and Chris Brown have reunited…well, not really. The two were busy snake charming during Travis Scott’s birthday kickback in L.A. last night. Kanye West, French Montana and Khole Kardashian were also in the mix. Peep the pics inside….

Grand Hustle artist Travis Scott, who’s also signed to Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music label as a producer, had a kickback in L.A. to celebrate his 23rd birthday yesterday (his actual birthday is today). And he definitely kept it interesting giving his guests the chance to handle snakes from L.A. Snake God AND he brought ex-lovers Rihanna and Chris Brown together.

But, not like you’re thinking. The two Pop stars came out to support and party it up with their friend. We’re not sure if the two chopped it up, but we assume they did since it seems they are on good terms these days. You’ll recall, during an interview with Hot 97, Breezy called Rih his friend and said, “We made amends, we good now.” 

Fresh from her Hawaiian vacay, the "BBHMM" singer was charmed by a snake as she flirtatiously posed with her hair covering her face.  And of course, she showed off her killer legs in a pair of denim daisy dukes.

Breezy also got in on the snake handling.

"All Day" rapper Kanye West left his wife at home to party with his producer. Travis captioned, "Getting wasted with these fools
Ninja x Ye ,YE happy bday to me."
Looks like he changed clothes as well.

The Houston rapper/producer was gifted a cake as he was all smiles sitting next to Rihanna.

Oh…and look who else was there….

 photo trav9.png

Looks like French Montana and Khloe Kardashian are still on…amidst reports claiming she’s NOT ready to finalize her divorce with her estranged husband Lamar Odom. It’s being rumored Lamar and Khloe are back to talking again and neither of them want to pull the trigger on their marriage. Hmph.

And Khloe’s bestie Malika Haqq also came out to party:
