Reason 2 million I love LA. Our local weirdos. Dennis Woodruff, Angelyne and a newer local favorite, Richie the Barber!
Part barber, part strange anomaly and all sorts of cool clown, Richie the Barber is a great guy and even better hair stylist. Or so I’ve heard. Talent and a love for all things clown and hair, makes Richie ok in my book. However being the ultra clean, I want all white in my dressing room diva, Jennifer Lopez is, she is not such a fan.
Jenny from the really expensive, diamond encrusted block, got sprinkled with a nice glitter bomb by Richie while leaving LAX. Richie apparently did the same to Khloe and Kourtney Kar-trashian in 2014.
I’m all for attacking celebu-trash with glitter, but I kind of like the Lopez. Next time try a little confetti Richie. I am sure there will be less cursing and name calling.
PS to TMZ – calling Richie and idiot is beyond kettle calling pot black. You guys are scum of the earth. He at least is a freaky but nice, and having fun.
Call it a case of fashion imitating art in the worst way possible. Yesterday artist KESH found out that Versace had been plagiarizing her shirt/art, and selling it for bank to millions at high-priced Selfride’s for an over-priced $650. Turns out it’s a rip-off of an incredibly famous shirt by local L.A. artist KESH that was a collaboration in 2013 that retailed for $50.
KESH X American Apparel 2013 on left, Versace ‘Medusa’ on right.
KESH had created a line with American Apparel in 2013. Internationally renowned for her collection with American Apparel in 2013, KESH went on tour for her collection with American Apparel, the line that sold out in a matter of weeks, and was a celebrity favorite.
According to publicist Sydney Reising;
The collection was extremely well received and sold out almost instantly as a result of the support ranging from models such as Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn (both were frequently seen in multiple pieces from the collaboration), to musicians like Jessie J and Wiz Khalifa, and K-POP stars 2NE1 and G-Dragon
The capsule was sold in American Apparel flagship stores around the world, from Tokyo to Berlin to New York. The artist traveled the globe to celebrate in stores worldwide with fans as the collection debuted.
This looks like a slam dunk case for artist KESH. Not only are the similarities in product plagiarism but the original AA x KESH Tee was photographed all over the internet by celebrities wearing it. Celebrities are even coming out in favor of the KESH line by instagramming themselves in the famous shirt.
Look’s like not only is the house of Versace looking at a lawsuit. Artist KESH is just devastated. KESH spoke with New York Magazine’s The Cut earlier today:
“I have always had a deep admiration for Versace. It’s an iconic brand that has stood the test of time. I am deeply disappointed in this. This is not only artwork from a show that took me two years to develop and create. It is not only artwork from a collection that I created for American Apparel to provide something affordable and accessible to supporters of my work. But this is also my face! I can’t understand how something like this could happen.”
Over here at HeathyrWolfe.com we support artists of all kinds but never support liars and cheaters. The house of Versace is fabulous, they don’t need to be stealing from hard-working artists. Why not just hire KESH? KESH is well-known for her work and has been featured in publications including; Elle, Cool Hunting, Vogue, i-D, LA Weekly, and WAD. The artist is known for her loyal fan base that includes Kayne West, Theophilus London, Jeremy Scott, Cara Delevingne, Azealia Banks and Prince.
I’m proud to say this is not slowing KESH down. She’s working on products that include not just visuals but music incorporate as well.
When people ask what I do I have a wide variety of responses. Writer, Editor, Superhero, fangirl, foodie, luchadora, pretzel vendor, fashionista, oh and that thing I do, Wardrobe Styling and Image Branding.
Sure I like pretty clothes that are nice and Michael Kors and Tom Ford are my heroes. But bring me a dress that is over the top couture insanity and I’m hooked. I want to work with it, love it and stick every client I have in it.
My client and friend Joy Villa is something special. She’s diverse, beautiful, 1000% vegan, a hardcore physically fit songstress. She is something special and her style is off the hook.

She called me ecstatic, she was headed to the Grammy’s in a few weeks and needed something as amazing, and over the top as her personality. I hooked her up with Andre Soriano, and magic happened. Joy chose the most amazing, creative thing Andre has ever sent down the runway, the couture cage dress made of snow fencing. AS a stylist I make sure that the dress they choose is the MAIN event, but always have other wardrobe choices for parties and after parties
During the fitting we chose three dresses all of which she wore like a supermodel. Stunning and sensual she wore the first, and sexiest to Jay-Z’s ‘Rocnation’ brunch.
This dress was skin-tight and Joy looked beautiful while she mingled with celebrities.
But let’s look at what you really came here for, The third and most outrageous was the orange dress that made headlines around the world.
Joy and I had an AMAZING fitting with Andre.
Up in the hills of Hollywood strange and beautiful things happen. At the fitting I met the beautiful Ruby Roxanne or Ruby Roxanne Designs and Hollywood Dolls.
Her partner in crime is ex-Pussycat Doll Kaya Jones. Her line is just what we needed for Joy to look gorgeous and we added Swarovski drop earrings and this leather and Swarovski bracelet;
With Nichole Ray Artistry on make-up the day of Joy turned out an unforgettable Grammy look.

Love it or hate it Joy Villa rocked it at the Grammy’s and got center stage at the Grammy’s. (And to answer the burning question, yes I put pasties on her and she was not completely nude.)
Apparently we rocked it because as much as she may have gotten some bad reviews we are trending at 81,000 hits in Asia and are on blogs in the UK, France, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic and all over the Philippines.
I want to say congratulations to my team, Andre Soriano (couture King), Ruby Roxanne Designs (Jewelry is everything), Nichole Ray Artistry (her skin was perfection), Thorsten von Overgarrd (one of the best photogs I have ever met) and especially to Joy Villa for rocking the red caret and her amazing energy the whole time!
Don’t know who Joy Villa is, but want to find out? Check out her Vagabonds video below;
Call this a case of mistaken identity, or the LAPD doing a smash-up job as usual.
Actress Daniele Watts, of D’jango Unchained, Weeds, Partners is a helluva an actress. With 34 credits to her name since 2008 she has been a busy girl on-screen. After working with Leo DiCaprio, Samuel Jackson, and being the girlfriend of successful Raw food chef Brian James Lucas, Daniele Watts is no stranger to the red carpet.
Daniele Watts playing a cop in ‘Weeds’
Apparently, these LAPD officers thought she was a stranger, and a prostitute to boot.
On 9/11 Daniele Watts and her boyfriend, Brian Lucas, were in a parked car in outside of CBS Studios making out, when they were approached by two officers, after a resident phoned in a suspicious couple.
Daniele had just left a meeting at CBS with a director. Brian tells us … he was told a resident of a nearby apartment saw them making out and called the cops.
Brian tells us LAPD officers came up to them with a suspicious eye. Brian believes it’s because cops saw “a tatted rocker white boy and a hot bootie shorted black girl and thought we were HO & a trick.”
Daniele was fully clothed and so was Brian. The cops demanded their IDs to which Brian complied but she refused. She walked away assuming it was no big deal. The cops however saw this as a reason to cuff her and throw her in the back of the car.
Daniele well dressed in casual street clothes
Poor Daniele suffered not only mentally, but physically. Although Daniele did her best to work with and talk to the officers after they had detained her, they made her break down and cry. The LAPD were very forceful and threw her into the back of the car and her cuffs were so tight, she received THIS INJURY;
That is just horrifying.
Too far LAPD. The LAPD have always had a bad reputation and this is not helping. Assuming they were getting freaky illegally? I don’t think you would bust them unless there was full sex. I would think it’s more likely in a ‘nice’ neighborhood like Burbank it’s because they were interracial.
Brian and Daniele have detained a lawyer, and will file a complaint with the LAPD. As they should. They have this blogger’s support, 1000%.
As the weekend draws near I realize how AMPED I am to ditch all you faithful readers and head off on my first vacation in 4 years. Yeah I am sure you think us bloggers are living non stop excitement and jet setting, but reality is we work our tiny heiny’s off. And I will be working in Vegas styling a secret shoot.
But it IS Vegas. What happens there during the end of Magic Fashion Market week, and a bunch of fashion people? Well, check my Instagram @HeathyrWolfe. Not everything that happens in Vegas stays, some ends up on my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. I like to share my debauchery.
With my fantastic weekend coming up, I can’t find a funkier space adventure that motivates me quite like this video. Here’s Ariana Grande with ‘Break Free’ featuring the madness that is Zedd.
For those of you not rocking Vegas, enjoy Burning Man!
Well, it’s been a week or internet snafu’s and idiocy. First Stephen Spielberg killed a Dinosaur and now ‘Orange is the New Black’ is cancelled. The first may be true (we just don’t know. Actually we do.), but Orange is the New Black getting cancelled?
Of course, there are great sites you can go to if you need to debunk a myth or, in this case, a HORRIBLE, HORRIFYING Internet rumor, I recommend SNOPES.COM.
No that we have debunked that hot mess, you may carry on with your Netflix-ing.
In a strange turn of events, Peaches Geldof, daughter of rock icon Bob Geldof, was found dead in her home in the UK today.
Peaches was a very young, 25 years old.
Peaches Geldof was a LA favorite and often went to the clubs, restaurants and sometimes even came out to support our lovely LAFW. Sadly, she will not be gracing us with her presence anymore.
The night before Peaches died she posted a picture of her mother on her instagram. Her mother died of a drug overdose at 41, so this may have been a clue towards Peaches Geldof’s death. Peaches had past issues with drug abuse, namely heroin, so the question of an overdose is flooding the tabloids. Although it is death is never pretty, and especially when it involves drugs, we hope there was no foul play involved. Details are still unfolding.
Condolences to the Geldolf family and friends. No matter how you look at it, it’s a shame. Rest well Peaches Geldof, you will be missed.
As the fashion world reels to the news the the ever relevant irrelevant ‘Kimye’ has taken over the Vogue cover, Naomi Campbell has spoken out. Or perhaps pulled the most epic LOL on the face of the planet. Normally I think she is stone cold B*tch, which can be great in fashion and modeling. No, really. However this time I want to hug that frozen goddess and thank her. Her rebuttal to the nasty made everyone smile. Possibly even Anna Wintour.
With an epic performance at the VMA’s and ‘Applause’ kicking the charts in the nads I would expect a crazy, fun, pop art, gay friendly Gaga to bring the greatness to her persona. A new Andy Warhol-esque diva perhaps? Something that is totally ‘ArtPop’?
Instead the Huffpost revealed this.
Oh, snap with a side of incredi-fail. Gaga is starting to look like a drag queen at 2:30am, after partying at The Abbey in West Hollywood, on Halloween night, aka, not so pretty.
I’m not sure what’s worse. Is it the smushed wig under a turban only Elizabeth Taylor could pull off? It looks akin to something that grew under my fridge a couple of months back. Her boobs are so squished, it literally is starting to give me sympathy pains.
Maybe it’s the dress that is screaming K-town $5 special? Perhaps it is the stoner glasses left over from the Lennon does acid while doing Yoko era? Maybe it’s just the ‘I did to many drugs and need a 14 hour nap’ face? Perhaps, it’s the fact my roommate thought I was showing her another picture of the 50-60 something year old Angelyne (at least she has style). The only redeemable thing here is the shoes. They are plain and simple and truly DO NOT match the outfit and that’s why they work.
Yes, Gaga has truly hit the ‘Diva down for the count’ look. Didn’t she just tell Miley Cyrus that drugs ‘eat your soul’?
I remember the days of new, young, hot and svelte Gaga. She was wry, witty and uber, uber fierce with a side of fucking awesome. She made videos with hot piece Alexander Skarsgard and worked it in rubber better than any bitch.
What happened? We will never know. Here’s hoping Gaga brings back the fierce. Just in case you need to remember what that looks like here is the video for ‘Paparazzi’. Maybe she will read this and it will snap her back into shape.
Although Facebook is a plethora of evil status comments, bad fan pages (like mine http://www.facebook.com/HeathyrWolfe) and ridiculous e-cards of hate, sometimes it brings something so good it cancels out everything. What can conquer evil and bring sunshine to countries like the UK? THE MUPPETS!!
Yes the Muppet’s are back in action in giving us “SEQUEL, SEQUEL” with Rick Gevais, Tina Fey, ScarJo, Penelope Cruz and the illustrious Ty Burrell.
When?! We are sad because the wait for Muppets Most Wanted is what seem’s like forever. It’s not coming to theaters until March 21, 2014! Wt-holy Animal heck? I need my fix. Ah well….here’s the trailer in HD until then.
Let it be known, I am totally crushed out on Bradley Cooper. My roommate, is head over hot heels in lust with Jeremy Renner. Both of us of course are in total lust with the Bale. Add a few elements to our celebrity crushes like the following AMAZING cast; Robert De Niro, Jack Huston, Louis C.K., Jennifer Lawrence, Elisabeth Rohm, Alessandro Nivola (HOT up and comer) and you have the new Casino for 2013, ‘American Hustle’.
American Hustle, is looking good.
It’s a story of scams, or the Abscam of the 70s and 80s.
The story of a con artist and his partner in crime, who were forced to work with a federal agent to turn the tables on other cons, mobsters, and politicians – namely, the volatile mayor of impoverished Camden, New Jersey.
It’s all edutainment, but story line be damned. With a cast like that they is no way they can’t win. Bale may look like a used car salesman but being a method actor, really great at his trade and H-O-T no matter what you do with him, owns this movie. Jennifer Lawrence I am happy to say is stretching her acting chops as a diva New Jersey sexpot/housewife, B. Coop is tragically coifed, but still can act and plays a good wimpy sleazebag. Amy Adams, scores another one for redheads everywhere, proving she can act AND that with the help of a personal trainer, she OWNS being head sexpot in this movie.
It’s wham, bam, thank you ma’am with a whole lot of espionage, drugs, sex and something about FBI entanglement. Looks like an hour or two of rollicking fun. This movie is SO new and fresh, they don’t even have a movie poster for it. Still I predict this to be an Oscar sweep for next year. Don’t trust me? See for yourself!
Life used to be so simple when we are all young, frivolous model’s. Editorial shoots, big money & sleeping with everyone. And so was the life of Naomi Campbell.
Then came Noami Campbell hitting 40-something. Although she is no longer a dainty, bitchy, flower, she is now a bitchy and violent,’seasoned professional’. Assaulting front desk people with phone’s, throwing Blackberry’s & keeping blood diamond’s, is just skimming the surface for this supermodel.
Enter Naomi’s new show ‘The Face’, and Luo Zilin from 1st (and hopefully last) season. A leggy pageant girl who won Miss Universe China, a la new model, signed to MIX Management. Zi Lin is now banging Naomi’s ex, Vladimir Doronin.
Let the game’s begin.
First, Naomi put a big cap on Zi Lin’s contract with Zi Lin’s money by killing her contract with MIX Management. They state she was let go due to ‘unprofessional’ behavior. We think they a little birdie (named Ms.’Thankyouverymuch’) might have had said something to make them can it. Something like, “That low-class, model, hooker is effing my ex and I will beat you in a back alley if you don’t let her go.”
NOW Naomi is brings the hate in round two. Naomi being more powerful than OZ, called up a few connection’s in China. Not only is she trying to get little Luo blacklisted worldwide, but she is asking her Chinese representation to show her the door.
“It’s really sad that Naomi can’t leave Vlad alone since he just wants to get on with his life with Luo in peace. She’s had a very successful career so far and deserves better than being bullied by Naomi. At this point, what he cares about is protecting Luo and helping to undo the damage Naomi has cruelly tried to inflict on her.”
Someone need’s to get a hobby, and their name rhymes with ‘pain in the ass’. Take up knitting, do Yoga, drink wine to relax like all us fashion people, but STOP with the H-A-T-E. There’s no cosmetic surgery to fix ugly behavior Miss Super C.
If it help’s poor Luo and Vlad, I’ll lend Naomi my phone to throw at framed photo of the pair. Forget the wine, girlfriend need’s Xanax and a nap.
John Galliano just cannot get a break. Then again, why should he?
In 2011 while helming the house of Dior, John Galliano went on a horrible anti-Semitic rant in France. Some poor couple was berated, he was arrested for drunken public behaviour and it cost him his job. This was an unforgivable faux pas, and frankly, pissed off a lot of fashion houses. Then he got it in his head he should sue Dior for wrongful termination making him persona fashion non grata.
Over the last two years Galliano has tried to smooth things over and get his career back on track. He has taken a temporary residency with Oscar de la Renta and HAD scored a job with Parson’ school of fashion design in New York. The key word being ‘had’.
The school, being of sound mind, and knowing their influence on youth in fashion, wanted Galliano to speak about his fashion design AND his actions in the world. Unfortunately being full of ego he still is having some ‘personal’ issues known as anti-Semitism, Galliano disagreed.
According to the Huffpost, a statement about the course by Parson’s said;
a candid discussion about the connection between his professional work and his actions in the world at large.” It said it canceled the workshop after the two sides couldn’t reach consensus on the conditions of the conversation.
A spokesman for Galliano didn’t immediately return a request for comment Wednesday.
Parson’s fired him and his fancy four day course and the rest is history.
In fashion we tolerate a large amount of crazy and terrible behavior. Sex, drugs, and runway are non-stop insanity and the people who make it happen are a bit ‘off’ as well. Being one of them I should know. We will not however tolerate racism, crimes against gays (they are our bread and butter) and religious hate.
Let’s hope Galliano learns to swallow is pride. It just cost him not only a job, but his reputation is beginning to ‘wear’ thin.
All the world is your stage, until you get busted. Then you are just another Disney kid.
Justin Bieber stepped into the shoes of many a Disney kid by getting busted for drugs, Wednesday night, in Stockholm. The Swedish authorities noses were super sensitive and caught a ‘whiff’ of something funny smelling as Bieber boarded his tour bus last night. No, it was not Nag Champa.
“A colleague sensed what was considered to be a strong smell of marijuana,” Stockholm police spokesman Lars Byström told the Aftonbladet newspaper.
Sensed? What is this? A new B movie in the making? A cop with a ‘weed’ sense that busts pot smokers is coming for YOU.
Being Swedish I have to give my people props for busting the Bieber and bringing this to light. Being compassionate I feel for the Bieber. I live in California where weed is like, well, a weed. There are at least 6 medical marijuana clinics with in walking radius of my apartment in West Hollywood. SIX. Yeah we are totally mellow out here in California FOR A REASON.
Don’t worry. Their love for Bieber conquered all Beliebers,
“We don’t have any concrete suspicions against any specific person; there were several people on the bus,” Byström told Aftonbladet.
Technically speaking it could have been his BFF Lil Twist, or a roadie. Let’s hope he gets off with a small fine. Bieber has had enough controversy on this European tour.
Searching through today and yesterday’s news I came across this picture. Supposedly it’s LeAnn Rimes taking Eddie C’s son to his little league game.
And it stopped me cold.
First I would like to say that LeAnn Rimes is looking unrecognizable. Her face has turned into a catastrophe from plastic surgery and sadly, starving herself. I seriously with Eddie Cibrian would step forward and help his withering wife. If she’s going to be a step-mother to his children and he cares AT ALL he will take the time to do something and help her. Obviously this is a moot point.
Now let’s analyze what’s wrong here (besides her starting to look like a cat woman).
The sports long sleeve sweater is fine. If it were paired with ANYTHING else. In the entire world. I could give her a pass but not only is this incredibad, but elf booties? Those were hot on the runway about 2-3 years ago. A passing fad I am thankful most people avoided. The fakin’ vinyl/leather 80’s runner shorts, I have no comment for. They should be burned….immediately. Accessories? A white leather hobo bag and a gold bracelet that go with nothing she is wearing.
The whole thing is just a mess and anyone who has ever had a stylist should know this. Especially LeAnn.
My hope is Brand Glanville grabs her son and takes him away before LeAnn traumatizes him with her terrible fashion sense. Think about the children!
