I have always had a love for designers who constantly do the unexpected and Iris van Herpen is one designer who undoubtably does that. Since launching her label in 2007, Dutch fashion designer Van Herpen has become one of the most talked about names in the fashion industry to date. Known for her innovative creations and super extravagant style, van Herpen pushes the limits of creativity with her interesting use materials.
Van Harpen collaborates with United Nude to present their 6th architectural shoe collaboration for her haute couture collections. So I thought I would show you all just how amazingggGGGGGG this shoe collaboration and their archive is. Every time I see these shoes (not to mention every single collection Van Harpen has ever done) I stare at them in ore and amazement. Check em out yo!!!
First up we have CARIOLE
All footwear for Iris van Herpen’s show was created in collaboration with United Nude. The designs were so intensely conceptual, that production was limited to the four catwalk pairs only!! Imagine trying to walk in those bad boys!!!
Next up we have BEYOND WILDERNESS
I am not going to lie but this heels look kind of scary BUT amazing at the same damn time.
…..And finally the latest design meet “FANG”
These bad boys have ten sharp teeth to each shoe
No matter what!! Iris van Herpen’s designs consistantly demonstrate fashion as art. Her creations are clear artistic statements which women can express their unique character. I’m such a fan of the whole thought process that goes in to creating something as unique as this.

It will be Kanye’s first marriage and Kim’s third. The couple have a daughter together,North West, who was born on June 15th.
Rihanna ran into a bit of trouble while visiting the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center in Abu Dhabi. The singer has been documenting her Diamonds World Tour by taking photos in a number of cities along the way and posting them on her Instagram.
However, some locals were not happy with the pictures taken at their Islamic place of worship.
“She was asked to leave before entering the actual mosque, (she was in the courtyard taking pictures) after taking some photos that did not fit within the rules and regulations set out to preserve the sacredness of the center,” the mosque said in a statement.
The pictures drew mixed reactions among Twitter users.

Following the debut of its blue tribute to legendary Le Mans champion Jean-Pierre Wimille, Bugatti has unveiled the second installment of its celebratory six-part “Legends” series: a blacked-out nod to Jean Bugatti, the oldest son of founder Ettore Bugatti. Inspired by Jean’s personal Type 57SC Atlantic – an automobile of his own design and one of the rarest/most expensive/most sought-after in the world – the special edition Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitessemimics the look of his La Voiture Noire (“The Black Car”) and comes entirely finished in black carbon fiber with a brown-on-beige two-tone cabin and rosewood shifter. Further accentuating the look of the understated-yet-luxurious exterior is a platinum grille, matching EB badges, and diamond-cut five-spoke wheels. Unveiled at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, the Jean Bugatti Veyron will be limited to just three production models – each priced at around 3 million.
