This American actor and comedian’s career has completely blow up in popularity in the past couple years. In just 2013 and 2014 alone, Kevin Hart has starred in three hit films: About Last Night, Ride Along, and Grudge Match. Being a native born Pennsylvanian, Hart used his comedic sense all of his life. After time, he was able to develop his own unmistakeable style of comedy. His comedy tour “Laugh at my Pain” was listed as one of 2011’s highest-selling comedy tours. He was named MVP of the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game in 2012, hosted the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, and won a Best Actor trophy at the BET Awards the same year. Also in 2014, Hart won two NAACP Image Awards, including Entertainer of the Year. Other movies he has been apart of are Scary Movie 3, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Scary Movie 4, Epic Movie, and Little Fockers. He has also performed in Wild ‘n Out, Barbershop, and Modern Family. He is currently in a relationship (pictured above with girlfriend Eniko Parrish) and has two children. Kevin Hart’s fashion style is becoming just as popular as his comedic career.

Pierre Balmain:
Balmain has always had an keen eye for brillant clothes. Growing up with a family who owned their own fashion boutique, Pierre has been around clothes since he was seven years old. His father passed away when Balmain was very young. He then spent most of his days with his mother and her sisters in a dress shop they ran. Pierre Balmain opened his first Couture house in 1945 and over time it became just as popular as Christian Dior. In 1945 Balmain created his first fragrance, Vent Vert, which is still in production today. By 1951, Balmain branched off into the United States. Balmain was able to open up several ready-wear shops and increased the French style.
