Everybody in the world knows this guy and has heard of this guy. How can it be possible that the first time I ever head about him is this morning when I got a pop up email from a new subscription to Vogue on line which revealed that he had recently collaborated with the Louvre to create some hoodies in honor of Leonardo Da Vinci? This is my big question. (Don’t tell anybody. It’s a secret. And I am actually embarrassed.)

And my next big question is, is he still BFF with Kanye???
