Snaps: Ruby Rose Opens Her Sneaker Closet For The Coveteur

DJ (she's toured with everyone from Nicki to Jessie J) and award winning TV producer Ruby Rose is no stranger to the spotlight, but that lime is about to get all the more brighter as she makes her debut as the newest Litchfield inmate on season 3 of Orange Is The New Black. Recently, Ruby (who resides in Los Angeles) opened her home to The Coveteur to display a sneaker collection we could roll with. Mix in some CHANEL here and Miu Miu there, amongst her streetwear collection, and some Jeremy Scott for Adidas, and you’ve got yourself a limelight worthy collection.

Snaps: Adrianne Ho Sweats the Style In Her Nikes With Mercedes-Benz

Adrianne Ho, founder of Sweat the Style and fitness model (natch), practically lives (and makes her living, mind you) in a sports bra, leggings and sneakers. Um, where here do we sign up!?! Anywho, Adrianne reunited with her family over at one of our favorite online hotspots at a suite at the Chateau Marmont, where the bicoastal blogger was holed up for her latest West Coast jaunt. Ho's wardrobe was a delightful mix of Supreme, Nike, vintage Dior and her own label, Sweat —her line of performance apparel - ummmm, hello!?!

Take a look at some of our favorite shots from her shoot and see why Canada is pretty damn awesome.

Snaps: Amirah Kassem Opens Up Her Kicks Closet With The Coveteur

"I always wear sneakers and a Wu Tang t-shirt. If it’s not that, it’s overalls and a white t-shirt. Anything I feel like I can dance in while I bake."

Let's put this in perspective for you: Amirah Kassem is Lisa Frank all grown up, with a bakery. The NYC-based cake goddess opened up a wonderful world that would make Willy Wonka grin in smug satisfaction as she welcomed The Coveteur into her kick-filled closet. Between a hot buttered popcorn machine, an apothecary of gumball-filled jars and an impressive collection of sneakers and Wu-Tang tees, Amirah makes it pretty easy to see why Beyonce and Jay Z trusted her to make Blue Ivy's six-layer birthday cake.

Snaps: Beauty Legend Bobbi Brown Kicks Back With The Coveteur

"There isn’t just one place where I find inspiration. I am inspired by so many things… countries I travel to, women I meet in-store or even on the street, fashion, art, music, the beach… I do find that I am most inspired when I have a moment to myself. Sometimes, my best ideas for a product will come after a long walk or workout." For those of us who grew up with our noses in '90s-era Seventeen magazine, Bobbi Brown needs no introduction. If I'm being honest, the level of fangirl moments I've had might be pretty darn embarrassing to admit now that I'm a grown woman. So, when we found out that Bobbi has her fair share of kicks? Well, the fandom went up a notch.

The folks at The Coveteur seem to echo my sentiments because they profiled the legendary makeup guru who is one of the pioneers in beauty empowerment. Now, via Yahoo Beauty, Bobbi continues empowering women in a world that seems to encourage insecurities. She tell Coveteur:

“I built my brand on empowering women to celebrate their natural beauty and be their best, most confident selves,” she told us. “I have worked with actresses, models, and celebrities my entire career and have learned that they share all the same beauty concerns that everyday women have. So shedding light on those issues that nobody talks about is important to me. I will talk about them and tell you the truth."

A fangirl moment is happening right now.

CNK Snaps: Rachael Wang For The Coveteur

“You know the kid in Big Daddy? That was me growing up. My first fashion memory was my first day of daycare in which I wore an engineer striped train conductor hat, a pajama top as a shirt and baggy dark denim jeans cuffed up to show off my sneakers. I believe my lunch pail was Care Bears. Not much has changed.” Oh, how I love the folks at The Coveteur. Not only do they expose me to some pretty fab lasses, but they always show love to the sneaker-lovers of the world. Next up, Rachael Wang, Style.com's recently appointed Fashion Market Director. And, as you might expect from a veteran fashion editor (formerly of Nylon, Glamour and Vogue, she’s styled everyone from Julia Roberts and Lena Dunham to Rita Ora and Ellie Goulding, so, she's pretty legit), Wang’s closet was top notch.

Her blended love for Huaraches, Vans, Nike Cortez (le sighhhhh) and lesser known gems like Tretorn, made this closet one we love long time.

Snaps: Imogene Barron Slides Through With The Coveteur

Slide thru, Imogene. Aussie stylist Imogene Barron recently chopped it up with one of my favorite e-stops and I couldn't help but notice that her slide game was mad proper. That wasn't quite what I was expecting from the woman who styled and creative directed the Miley Cyrus metaphorical middle finger to Disney (a.k.a. the album cover of Bangerz). She's also the eye behind fashion films for the likes of Adidas, Dazed &Confused and Dion Lee. Plus, she's designed her own collection for Stance Socks which, in my opinion, is the cherry on top of the proverbial sundae.

Anywho, Barron handed over the keys to her LA bungalow and showed off her collection of Adidas/Nike slides, New Balance jolts, and even a pair straight from this British stunner's most recent three-stripe collection.

#ChicksNKicks | 8 Of Our Favorite Coveteur Closets

If you've ever perused The Coveteur, you'd know that the closets of the folks they profile are just as interesting and colorful as the people themselves. That said, one thing I'm absolutely in luhhhve (yep, that much) with regarding The Coveteur's unique appeal, is the constant combination of high-end shine pieces (like a classic Chanel clutch) paired with quite a few down-to-earth sneaker favorites. I like these pairings so much that I decided to write about it. Wanna read it? Scroll on, playa:
