Have you heard the whispers or read some of the mainstream fashion buzz coming by way of the north pole? Recall catching glimpses of TV or radio ads across the airwaves promising something anew… in a city most famous for its rugged beauty, oil, gold and wild Alaskan salmon? Maybe you seen a few top model types, street style photographers, reporters, celebrities and fashionistas in Anchorage the past couple years around the spring/summer months and wondered… whatever could they be up to…?

Alaska’s vibrant couture style is in full force. Many looks are as imaginative as ever, boasting swathes of color as sweeping as the outdoors in collections inspired by America’s landscapes and plush coastlines. Oh, tailored, minimal and chic are making a strong appearance, too!

Rihanna freakin’ killed this look.  I need to know who her stylist is.  They know what the heck they are doing, but then again the girl looks good in everything.

Other notables were Chrissy Tiegen, Janelle Monae, Sarah Jessica Parker and more.  Their looks stood out more to me.  There were also some bombs.  I didn’t like Beyonce’s look, but I almost never like her Met Ball look.  Usually it’s something fishtail.  Adore the girl, but I’m not feeling the look.  I do wish Kanye would stop wearing those young ass pants too.  They are tight and wrinkled on his legs.  I think he favors leggings.  I can’t.  Just no.  Kim looked nice though.

A member of his team released the following statement:

Read the statement below:

Tomorrow a statement will be made on the announcement of the passing of “Quentin Elias” this is a very sad time for his family and fans around the world. Please be patient for the official press release as it will be posted here tomorrow. – MGMT

It is known that Quentin has battled heart problems for some time now.

Quentin was the former lead singer of the French group Alliage before relocating to New York City, where he opened for Janet Jackson and Madonna.  His actual age is up in the air… some say he was born in 1980 instead of 1974. He was a also a high fashion model for designers like Armani and Jean Paul Gaultier.
