Kanye West and Kim Kardashian arrived in style to the Givenchy show during Paris Fashion Week on Sunday. The superstar couple was matching in all black as they posed for pictures on the streets before heading inside to check out the spring/summer womenswear.

After the fight, it’s the after party. Following Floyd Mayweather, Jr.’s victory over Canelo Alvarez on Saturday, the stars turned up in Las Vegas with parties all over the Strip.

Ciara made a quick trip to the Prada store to grab a fresh pair of kicks before heading to The Bank at the Bellagio. The stylish singer, whose bags didn’t make it onto the plane, put up her dukes while sporting a “Lover Not a Fighter” sweatshirt.

The Ciroc was flowing freely as Diddy (who lost $1 million to Rick Ross in a dice game) hosted an after party at the Palms Pool, with guests including Rozay, Tyga, Bow Wow, and 2 Chainz, who was dressed in all white.

After his star-studded bash in New York, a tuxedo-clad Nas celebrated his actual 40th birthday at a pre-fight party with LL Cool J and Busta Rhymes before heading to TAO for the grand finale.

Future is surrounded by beauty in the video for “Honest.” The Freebandz rapper goes in front of the lens to shoot the visuals for the first single off his upcoming album of the same name. LeToya Luckett plays his leading lady in the Colin Tilley-directed clip, which was shot at a sprawling mansion. His boo Ciara also stopped by the set.

His sophomore album Honest arrives Nov. 26. On Sept. 25, he will hit the road with Drake and Miguel on the “Would You Like a Tour?” arena trek.
