Does Jay-Z Really Have A FENDI Face?+Other Fabness

​ ​ ​ ​
Photog: Barson/Wireimage
It looks like Jay-Z might have a new job...as the new face of FENDI. How his "face" will be incorporated into the brand is still a secret--he could be the actual face/spokesperson or just lending his name to the brand like he usually does. Either way, he was spotted alongside Karl Lagerfield yesterday (who is the FENDI Creative Director) at a photoshoot for the new F/W '08 FENDI campaign. And he was definitely all in the mix. It seems like they're trying to keep this low low though since once a paparazzi sprung from he corner snapping pics, the pap was physically taken down extra hard. We shall see...

Speaking of shoots, Tyra was spotted all smiles on a car commercial shoot yesterday that also features Toni Braxton. And since everybody else's girlfriend gets celebrity face time simply because they're a celeb girlfriend:

I think I kinda like this Grasie Mercedes. She's MTV VJ Damien Fahey's model girlfriend who goes with her man everywhere-like Damien's release party last night. I'm not even mad. I AM mad at the Opie status of his jeans though. The Randomness:
  1. Oh so PETA must not know about Mama Retha.
  2. MiMi turned 38 today.
  3. Damn Mary J. A$12 million (in cash) NJ mansion? Must be nice.

This is a place i know for

This is a place i know for opinions but if you have something bad to say match it with an alternative or suggestion. OR shut up also half of you are always hating on sisters and bigging up the men more. Tyra is beautiful, jayz is doing what he has to do, Damien is a cute nerd dating a beautiful sister whom is into vintage and keeping simple.

Love to see sisters getting their swirl on. Brothers we are even now.....LOL..... jk. I hate to see the lovely model is wearing her hair the same way I did in the 3rd grade when I played Harriet Tubman sans the ponytail on the side. Not a cute look, but clearly a beautiful girl.

I love the idea that Jay is

I love the idea that Jay is working with Karl Lagerfeld!!!! Hello, both are great. I am a big Jay-z fan but I am also love Karls attitude (he´s too funny). So both matches really good, I think Karl saw Jays swagger and thought I need that dude. What I heard is that Karl picks personally the models. Can´t wait for that pictures! Where are the paparazzis at? Keep going Jay-z! I hope to see him at the BET Awards

Models don't have to be

Models don't have to be pretty anymore, they have to represent what the label is looking for. They wanted to add an edge and urban feel (sterotypical) to the line, so they used a Jay-z! common sense

[quote comment="57413"][quote comment="57406"][quote comment="57384"]He may not have a FENDI face yet but I'm hopin' FENDI will start to adapt. Big ups to him 'cause most high fashion designers doesn't use black models so I'm supportin' Jay simply on that precedent. Even though he's not that important to me, I'm happy to see Damien with a woman of color..... Gives me hope for me as a black woman and my half-black-but-looks-white baller crush. :][/quote] What the hell are you talkin about?[/quote] Which part? There are two different topics.... as far as Jay-Z.... It's explanitory.... there are tons more caucasian models than ethnic models and it's quite sad. As far as Damien..... I'm just applaudin' their couple status 'cause if a black man gets a white woman, he's praised but if a black woman gets with a white man, she's shunned. I'm tired of the double standard....[/quote] Oh honey please!!! All you have to do is read some of the quotes...namely on this web page...whenever a Black man is with a white woman i.e.: Quincy Jones, Reggie Bush, Kobe Bryant, David Alan Grier, Ahmad Rashard...the list goes on and on. Just watch the next time a photo of a black man and a white woman goes up on this website and watch all the garbage comments come out!!! Yeah I said it!!!!!

And while I do support natural beauty, naked beauty I do not. Please throw on some gloss, eye liner and mascara if nothing else. Oh, and ditching that knock off immitation Kerry Washington flower frock done a lil' differently with a zipper(???) and cut might help. But you cute boo.....

And that he independently released Reasonable Doubt, which is one of his most acclaimed albums, on his own label right? I could go on and on, but that is one example of his mogul-ness.
