Remember those Elna* x Zion skateboards we posted?
People are loving Elna*’s work, so here are some Nike Dunks he customized.
The sneakers and commercial for Nike Israel (below the kicks) were part of his final project for Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. See, kids? Even world renowned street artists go to school – some of them, anyway. The music in the video is by DJ Markey Funk.

A fully dressed Erykah Badu wore a pair of sunglasses that looked like they were melting off of her face to BET’s 106 & Park. The shades are Ann-Sofie Back‘s Dripping sunglasses. The aviators give the illusion that they are melting.
The “Call Tyrone” singer was on the show to promote her 5th studio album, “New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh)”. She recently stirred up MAD controversy for her newest video, “Window Seat“, in which she strips down naked in public and, “at the edited-in sound of a rifle shot, she falls to the ground … within feet of where President John F. Kennedy was shot.”
Watch the video for Erykah Badu’s “Window Seat” here:

“Be Stupid“? An interactive mix of online catalog and music video? More like a really smart, cool idea.
Stink Digital have taken Diesel’s spring/summer 2010 Be Stupid campaign to a whole other level. Commissioned by Anomaly London and hosted at www.diesel.com/ahundredlovers, their video look book is also the debut music video for artist Josep Xorto’s track, “A Hundred Lovers”. It’s got enough looks for all those lovers, so watch it to see what Diesel has coming out. The song is catchy, too.
Do you think people will be doing the Diesel dance once this video gets enough hits?

Recently, Rihanna appeared on British talk show, Chatty Man, rocking a mean Cosby-meets-lunch-lady-pin-up look. Take a closer look at her choice of accessories. The popstar wore bracelets by House of Harlow 1960, Nicole Richie’s jewelry line.
The Crystal Pave style consists of a black or creme leather band, surrounded by a geometric pattern of Czech crystals. Although they are not available until April, looks like Riri loves ’em. She’s been spotted wearing one of Nicole’s bangles again, below.
