LOS ANGELES (AP) — DJ Khaled is releasing a single with Nipsey Hussle that was filmed days before Hussle was shot to death in Los Angeles.

Khaled announced on Twitter on Wednesday that all proceeds from “Higher” will be donated to Hussle’s children, 10-year-old Emani and 2-year-old Kross.

Khaled says he decided to share the single after much prayer and with the full blessing of Hussle’s family. He says the “title of the song reminds us that vibrating on a ‘Higher’ level was the essence of Nipsey’s soul.”

The song also features John Legend.

Hussle was shot to death in what police said was a personal dispute outside his South Los Angeles clothing store on March 31.

The man charged in the shooting has pleaded not guilty.

Arianna Huffington Hosts Party for Daughter’s Collaboration With Sarah Flint

ARIANNA GETS HAPPY: Thrive Global founder Arianna Huffington threw a party Wednesday night in honor of her daughter Isabella’s new collaboration with shoe designer Sarah Flint.
The twentysomething Huffington’s art has been shown at Rebecca Minkoff’s Los Angeles gallery and in Ports 1961’s store. Through a collaboration with the travelwear company Summersalt, Huffington will help launch a swimsuit soon. Flint, meanwhile, is using a butterfly print from one of Huffington’s paintings for the new shoes.
Huffington said of her new kicks with Flint, “I love the idea of wearable art. If you make a painting, it’s just for one person. If you make a shoe, it has to be something that a lot of people will love.”
Her “reimagined” portraits of women from the 18th and 19th centuries” were on display in the apartment’s study. Five years out of Yale, the younger Huffingon lives within walking distance of her mother’s SoHo pad, and asks her for advice from time to time. The Thrive founder’s most sound advice is, “A lot of times people think, ‘I’ll be happy if I get this or this, or if this happens or that happens.’ If you’re not happy now, you’re not going to be happy when that happens.

‪Pharrell Williams Teases Short Film for Chanel Collaboration‬

PARIS — The Chanel-Pharrell collection is landing soon: Pharrell Williams teased some looks from his eagerly awaited collaboration with the French luxury brand in a 15-second clip posted to his Instagram account on Friday. 
The segment shows a group of women and men lounging after dark, dressed in the rainbow outfits from the capsule. Williams is seen holding a glowing orb inside his mouth, to eerie effect, while in another scene, a television screen in a grand apartment shows black-and-white footage of the label’s founder, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, talking about elegance.
Williams has a long-standing relationship with Chanel and the late Karl Lagerfeld, its creative director for 36 years, starting with their sneaker launch at the now-defunct Paris concept store Colette in 2017.
 The “Happy” singer, who has won 10 Grammy Awards and heads the multimedia collective I Am Other, was previously one of the ambassadors of the Gabrielle handbag, has walked in its runway shows and appeared in a movie directed by Lagerfeld for which he wrote an original song.
An early proponent of genderfluid dressing, Williams likes to wear Chanel pearls with everything from a tuxedo to a yellow hoodie.
Lagerfeld regularly included a number of men’s looks, often modeled by his muses Baptiste Giabiconi

Kylie Jenner Hints A Kendall Jenner Makeup Collaboration Is Coming Soon

Kylie Cosmetics has a new collection in the works, and it is a collaboration fans have been dreaming about for years. The beauty brand founder, Kylie Jenner, hinted that a Kendell Jenner makeup collaboration is coming soon!

It is about time the two youngest of Kardashian/Jenner clan got together for a cosmetics line. Kylie has already done beauty collaborations with Kim, Khloe and even Kourtney but there has never any mention of her teaming up with the family model until now.

During an Instagram live, Stormi’s mother revealed there was an excellent reason the Jenner girls had not yet worked together on a makeup line.

A post shared by Kendall (@kendalljenner) on

“Can we also get a collab with Kendall,” one fan wrote during the live segment.

The beauty mogul played coy as she read the question out loud. Kylie winked at the camera and put her finger to her lips saying “shh.” No, she didn’t just leave fans hanging in the wind with her response.

Kylie went on to explain to her millions of followers the reason why she and Kendall have yet to collaborate on a beauty line. It is good one and fans should understand better now why their dream makeup collection has taken so long.

“You know Kendall was in a contract for a really long time, so I couldn’t do a collab with her. That’s the only reason why I didn’t collab with her,” shared the 21-year-old.

Kendall was a model for the beauty brand Estée Lauder for years. Even though Estée Lauder dropped the brunette beauty from their payroll in 2017, that does not mean her contract ended then. Plus, there could have been a non-compete clause further preventing the 23-year-old from working with another cosmetics line.

The good news is, Kylie Jenner has hinted she and Kendall Jenner are going to do a makeup collaboration. She, of course, didn’t give any details or even necessarily confirm it is happening, but all signs point to a collection in the works.

Kylie likes to keep her beauty business all in the family. She has created a mega empire with her cosmetics line and loves working with her family to on new collections. Fans are going to have to stay tuned for more on her collaboration with Kendall. Will, it be under Kylie Cosmetics or will the sisters come up with another cool, hip name?

Adidas Original Unveils Collaboration with Ji Won Choi

TAKE FIVE: New York-based Korean fashion designer Ji Won Choi is the latest emerging talent Adidas Original tapped to design a capsule women’s ready-to-wear collection.
“The idea was to take the very classic Adidas tracksuits and reinterpret it with my aesthetic in five different ways. I took the very iconic Adidas stripes and repeated it everywhere to create a consistent and cohesive visual language and merge it with the sportiness and playfulness of the brand,” Choi explained during the presentation.
The clothes were shown in a huge basement near Camden market during London Fashion Week. A colorful 3D maze was built and models walked up and down on interconnected staircases as in an infinite loop.
