Truman Says

Anyone who has even the slightest interest in fashion knows that Alexander Wang is the go-to guy for cool, sleek, urban clothing  -- a hit with his coterie "it" girls. Every lass living below 14th Street waits with baited-breath to see what slutty-sporty creations stride down his runway. With a business is growing at an exponetial rate -- thanks in part to accessories and his lower-priced basics line T by Alexander Wang -- its only natural to expand into menswear.

Rapper and fashion fanatic Kanye West made headlines when he sported a women's shirt from the label Céline earlier this year at Coachella (left on West; center in Céline's spring 2011 show), proving that he's not immune to the charms of a fabulous tunic top (who is?).

This past weekend, rapper Nicki Minaj wore another kooky outift to her appearance at the iHeartRadio concert. In addition to a bedazzled, lacy, mess on her torso, the performer wore a pink fried chicken leg necklace. Cute and quirky, right?
