I’ve always believed that rap was sort of the final frontier when it comes to homosexuality — that given the culture of misogyny and homophobia so prevalent in rap, it would be an amazing and powerful statement to have a gay emcee go public. And so it is, with Odd Future collective member Frank Ocean, who, this weekend on his blog, recounted the painful memories of his first love, a close male friend:

All Our Favorite Looks From Paris Couture Week

It’s Fall/Winter 2012 Couture Week in Paris, my favorite series of collections. Couture Week, like other fashion weeks, happens twice a year, and is when designers break out the big guns — garments can cost in the tens of thousands of dollars.

We’ve already shown you the new collection from Raf Simons over at Dior, but here are the new looks from Giambattista Valli, Versace, Armani and Chanel. Check back here often for more amazing couture looks.

“As the film credits started to roll, I couldn’t move. I burst into tears. People walking past me patted me on the back, trying to console me. ‘The Notebook’ was beautiful, and I was crying because its hero and heroine had died together.
