Kanye West caused quite the uproar during NYFW.

So apparently, Yeezy wanted to add a last-minute fashion show for September 16 at 12 p.m to the NYFW calendar, but what the rapper failed to consider was that there were two other major shows happening at the exact same time.

Designer Anne Bowen, who was set to launch her anticipated street collection, Nomad VII by Anne Bowen, and famed designer, Naeem Khan were both scheduled to showcase their latest designs the same time as Yeezy … But it was Bowen who really showed her outrage.

“We have been prepping for a year for this at considerable financial, labor- and commitment-cost to our company. Our show date has been scheduled for months and has been on the Fashion Calendar for weeks,” Bowen told WWD on Sunday. “We went through all the proper channels to make this a reality. And just yesterday we learned that Kanye West is having a show at the same time on the same date as ours.”

Bowen continued, “Kanye knows he is a media sensation and it is just not ethical to do this. It’s like we are David and he is Goliath. We have put our heart and soul into our show and should not be stepped on like this.”

According CFDA CEO. Steven Colb, West never put his show on the calendar so it was a surprise for everyone.

Bowen will now show her new collection on the 17th at 12:30 p.m. at her original location.

    She needed the publicity so this is what she does! The people that will attend Kanye’s show would never go to her show and she knows that, but she also knows that people know who Kanye is but who the hell are you and what do you know about street style, she looks like she’s from Bev Hills!

Life is still peachy for Phaedra Parks!

The former The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star has just signed a contract with Wilhelmenia Modeling Agency.

That’s right the 5’1 attorney turned reality star, entrepreneur and mortician has now added model to her long list of job titles.

Stylish caught up with Parks about the new venture and her new revenge body.

“I think I’m the face of “yes you can,” she said when asked why modeling. “I’m a small town girl who has followed her dreams. Yes you can be a mom, yes you can be a lawyer and yes you can be a model. When the opportunity presented itself some people asked me “Why?’ and I said “Why not?”

She added, “I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color and age. It’s exciting and an adventure!”

When asked what her dream campaign would be Parks said something in the beauty space.

“Well I would love be the face of skin care brand. I have great skin, I love makeup, but I love to be able to take off the makeup and have beautiful skin. I also think a lot of girls are looking on Instagram for an idealized standard of beauty that requires a lot of makeup. Those are not the faces of what real women look like.”

Not surprisingly Parks also admitted that she would be ok with going nude for the cameras.

“I don’t mind baring it all, I have been wearing g-strings and baring it all really every season for seven years. I had two children on national T.V.  I love nudity! I’ve brought a lot of exotic entertainers on the show, so I love my body and I’ve got curves. I’m a mother of two children, so I’m not perfect, but I have no problem getting naked.”

And we can see why. The mother of two is looking better than ever these days. So was it the divorce from husband Apollo Nida that led to her new body?

“Well, a lot of things happened in my personal life,” she explained. “Going through everything was so much stress, but then when it finished it was just effortless. I feel like I turned into Benjamin Button and started aging backwards, I started being happy.”
