Kanye West’s NYFW spectacle, Rihanna wants Drake to work and more of today’s news.
Yeezy Season 3 Is A Go
It's Kanye's world and we just live in it. Yeezus finally confirmed that Yeezy Season 3 is a go at Madison Square Garden on the first day of NYFW, simultaneously scheduled with the release of his new album Waves (yep, he changed the title from Swish ). Naturally, he shared both bits of information on his go-to platform Twitter via a photo of his "wifey" with the hashtag #season3 and a series of tweets revealing the album name change. While it's unclear if Ye plans to perform a full tracklist during his epic MSG event, the spectacle will be broadcast live at theaters around the world for those not in NYC. Moral of the story? Kanye expects you to clear your schedule come February 11. [ Fashionista ]
Armani Privé's Purple Reign
Mauve was the preeminent choice for Giorgio Armani today at his 2016 Privé couture show in Paris. While graphic black and metallic shades of grey made a strong appearance in the collection, it was hard not to swoon over the purple paillettes that ruled the runway. Extraordinary detailing was also key, as waves of fabric adorned with sequins, ruffles and beading galore wrapped around each model as she cruised the catwalk. [ 10 ]
Rihanna And Drake "Work"
Rihanna released her new single "Work" today from her highly anticipated forthcoming album Anti (release date still TBD). The reggaeton love song features Drake's silky rhymes about mid-way through where he comes in with classic lines like “If you had a twin I would still choose you.” D'awwww. RiRi responds by driving her point home that he better "work, work, work, work, work" for her love. You can download the song on iTunes or stream it here, but either way we suggest you prepare your clurb moves accordingly. [ The Cut ]

For the East Coasters who had a tough go of it courtesy of Winter Storm Jonas, Ellie Goulding has you beat. In a #TBT Instagram post, the singer revealed that she and her photographer friend Conor McDonnell nearly drowned in the middle of a below-freezing lake in Norway: "Throwback to a few weeks ago when myself and @conormcdphoto nearly ended up in a lake in -30...
