“My style changes throughout the year so even for me, it’s hard to describe it. I get inspiration from a lot of things. For basketball we travel a lot and I’m able to visit hotels and see different fabrics and art on the walls. I also get inspiration from women’s wear. It’s very interesting to see how the clothes are made and how they mix and match different pieces,” Westbrook told SI. “A lot of people may like to wear nice clothes, but some do not really understand where fashion comes from. I took the time to do my research and learn about the fashion world before I was able to get in to it. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Anna Wintour and Andre Leon Talley to pick their brains about the origins of fashion and how it all began. Now, I have my own brand with Barney’s and True Religion. I’ve been able to create this space for myself as a designer while still playing basketball.”

In addition to Westbrook, the best dressed athletes in sports issue features LeBron James, Victor Cruz, Serena Williams, Dwyane Wade and many more. The “Fashionable 50” issue of Sports Illustrated hits stands April 18th.

Ya’ll already know Tamar Braxton is not the one to try. But her stylist must not have gotten the memo. Apparently he thought it was ok to belittle her for wearing a jumper from Forever 21 during a recent interview and she had to hand him his walking papers.

Braxton let her fans know what went down via her Instagram account and also encouraged women to be confident in whatever they wear.

“The stylist today tried to make me feel “less than” because he didn’t agree that I should wear @forever21..well.. I FIRED him because NO ONE should make you feel “less than” because you have on a $40 outfit!!,” she wrote.

“You are AMAZING and don’t let ANYONE bully you into spending what you have.. or NOT..,” she added. “It doesn’t make you ANY LESS FABULOUS!! You make the clothes!! Your SPIRIT makes you!! EMBRACE YOU!! YOU ARE PERFECT!! NO MATTER WHAT!!

Braxton rocked the City of Angels Camo jumpsuit and a pair of suede Christian Louboutin booties while appearing on Essence Live to promote her new (and final) studio album “Blue Bird Of Happiness”.

Honestly we liked the look and that she mixed high and low end labels so effortlessly. But thats just our two cents.
