Case Closed: Amber Rose in Bless’ orange fox fur jacket

Amber Rose in orange jacket by BlessWhen we first brought Bless’s bright orange fox-trimmed jacket to your attention last August, we thought this was one fashion mystery that would have to remain unsolved, for surely no one would want to wear such an item – especially considering the fact that it comes with a $1,777 price tag?

As our mothers are always telling us, though, there really is something for everyone, and one woman’s crime of fashion is another woman’s Most Wanted. As if to prove that point, here’s Kanye West’s girlfriend, Amber Rose, wearing one of the aforementioned jackets in Paris last week. Looks like Amber missed the ‘Leggings Are Not Pants’ memo too, hmm?

Interestingly, one of our first reactions to this jacket last year was that it somehow looked like it had been Photoshopped – something we put down to way it had been photographed. Now we see it in “real life”, so to speak, though, it STILL looks Photoshopped. Just one of the many mysteries about this item, we suppose. Still, at least we can now close the case on the question “Who would WEAR this?”

    If you look closely it seems that she is not wearing “one of these jackets” but THE very jacket that was used for the advertising shot. (Either that or Bless actually make sure that every single jacket has the same patches of fur in exactly the same places.)
    Maybe nobody ordered the jacket at all, so Bless gave the promotional one away for free?

    By the way: Did you notice the amused look of the guy in the background? Seems he can’t believe somebody is wearing a jacket like this, either. And I bet he’s seen a lot!

      Indeed, quite a smirk he’s got on his face. Guess what he was telling his friends that evening in the pub! 🙂

      And I’m sure this must be a fox’s version of hell… if I was a fox and had to give my life for a garment, I would hope it would be for a stunning coat and not some cheap hooded safety vest I’d be stapled to…

        If I were a fox, I wouldn’t want to give my life for a garment at all. Fur = torture

    That jacket is hazardous to my eyesight and it should be thrown into solitary confinement quickly before it mates with any other articles of clothing.

    I thought the man in the background was enjoying the view of her butt.
    But, yeah, the jacket is pretty interesting, too.

    Well she IS dating Kanye West, that should say something right there. 😛 But seriously, it looks photoshopped. Are you sure this is real? Maybe I just can’t get over anyone with that much money buying something that stupid. And florescent orange.

    Who would wear this? someone who either: has extremely bad taste or wants attention.
