Trend Alert: All black everything

allblack-rihannaGet y’all black tees up, all black everything

Black cards, black cars, all black everything.

How many times have we said ‘black is the new black’?

Well, get ready to hear it again and see it again because black is back in a big way, heavily influenced by the iconic lines in Jay-Z, Rihanna and Kanye West’s smash hit ‘Run This Town’.

The all-black look is doing crazy rounds at New York Fashion Week with everyone from Ciara to the Simmons sisters to Rihanna herself rocking … what else… all-black everything.

There are many ways to wear all black and this particular black out look is more elegant gangster or edgy fashion stylist/editor than creepy goth.

Of course, the subtle sub-text underpinning all of this is Barack Obama’s presidency. After all, with a black man leading the most powerful nation in the world, it really is a time of ‘all black everything’.

Check out how many celebs have been wearing the all black look in recent days.
