Happy New Year! Hope everyone had fun welcoming in the new year, may 2013 be an excellent year for us all. Thank you for your kind support towards the blog over the past year, I really appreciate it. I am working for bigger and better things for the blog this year, hope you will stay on the journey with me.

To start the first blog post in 2013, we have the very dapper Jay-Z in Lanvin. Jay-Z took the stage at Brooklyn's Barclays Center at 11:59pm on New Year's Eve and rang in 2013 with Coldplay's Chris Martin singing along to "Auld Lang Syne." The rapper and record producer looked really good in a blue tuxedo with matching bow tie. For the initial part of his performance, Jay-Z also wore a Lanvin padded sleeveless gilet/coat over his tuxedo. Very interesting styling and quite an unusual piece, but it worked really well with his tux.

The padded gilet/coat was also presented on the runway, but blink and you might miss it. The padded piece was blown backwards and most of the detailings were lost from runway pictures.

This was how the padded gilet/coat looked like backstage before the show. I must say Jay-Z definitely wore it better. What a great way to start the first blog post in 2013, with the very dapper Jay-Z in Lanvin. Hope everyone had fun with their New Year celebrations.
