Fast Food and Runway Fashion??
American designer, Jeremy Scott has taken his fashion to an incredibly new level. Collaborating with Moschino, he bravely incorporated McDonalds, Fruit Loops and Spongebob in to Moschino’s 2014 line. The new line seems to have reached its peak of success hence its positive feedback after Fashion Week all over the world. Also, celebrities like Rita Ora, Katy Perry and Amber Rose are spotted wearing Scott’s new Happy Meal pieces. He says “Ultimately, we need no more clothes. We could function with everything that’s on the earth right now. So you have to have this reason to want things. To me, it’s to make you happy, and to me, that’s linked to humor.” I agree!
Not sure if I love the new fashion line, but the idea is super DOPE. What do you think? Hot…? or naw…

Hot New Dance…
Hit That Nae Nae!
The new southern born dance called the “Nae Nae” is fairly new. But since I’m so in love with it, I just though I’d share. It’s easy and its fun. All You do is put one hand in the air and swerveee. After seeing multiple celebrities, athletes and even Disney characters do it, I couldn’t help but perfect it. Watch Mickey, Minny, Donald & Goofy do the Nae Nae! Check it out!
