Rapper Chanel West Coast Brings Her Sexy Style to VH1’s ‘Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood’

Chanel West Coast has a song devoted to Karl Lagerfeld, name-drops Jimmy Choo and turns out sizzling music videos wearing a range of labels, from skyscraper Christian Louboutins to Chuck Taylor kicks.

For the past nine seasons, the 28-year-old has been the co-host for MTV’s “Ridiculousness,” but now she’s making bigger waves with her music career and taking fans along for the journey as the new cast member of VH1’s “Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood.” The reality series, now in its fourth season, also features R&B singers Keyshia Cole and Ray J, airing Monday at 8 p.m. ET.

The entertainer tells Footwear News that she plans to show fans plenty of fashion and hip-hop, but no romance. “I don’t have any love on the show — so I guess my love interest is my music, so you’ll see that,” she said. “I’ve always been a relationship type of person, but guys are a**holes. I think it’s a sign from god to focus on my career 100 percent instead of focusing on a relationship. I’ve had my share of crazy boyfriends, and I feel that people who talk about private stuff in public is crazy.”

Below, Chanel West Coast shares her favorite shoe styles and more.

“You can expect a lot of different outfits because I’m trying to bring it. I took time to plan ahead — I have a ton [of outfits] just waiting to film scenes in. But not a lot of logos because there are none allowed on the show.”

“My crystal-studded Giuseppes. They are just super-feminine and sexy. I picked them.”

“Gwen Stefani. She’s been my style idol all my life. She’s just always been dope.”

“I’d have to say my 5-inch Louboutins. No height is too high for me because I’m short.”

“I have shoes for every occasion and type of outing. Some days I’m wearing my Jordan retro high-tops or my cute Beavis & Butthead Dr. Martens. As far as heels, I love Giuseppe, Louboutin and especially Jimmy Choo because they have my size.”

“I like to wear sexier stuff that I wouldn’t wear down the street. I like to be extra sexy and be out there and different. Recently I wore this see-through holographic hoodie with just a bikini with my booty showing. It got comments and likes. I’m into holographic stuff. That was something sexy.”

“I wear a lot of sneakers during the day — maybe wedges by the pool. I’m always in Converse or Vans. I kind of have a shoe fetish and a whole separate closet. Converse sneakers are my go-to shoes. They go with everything.”

“I wear a size 5 and have petite, skinny feet, so a lot of shoes that have ankle straps don’t fit me. And a lot of boots look ridiculous on my ankles.

“For designer heels, Net-a-Porter is good, and they have the best return policy. They’ll take back anything. When I’m here [in L.A.] I get help — I have a personal stylist — but at the end of the day, I pick [the shoes] out. I get anxiety when I’m shopping. When I have the time, I go around Beverly Hills, and everything is there.”

“There are times that I won’t look at comments the whole month. That incident with Charlamagne went viral online, so I feel like it’s important to respond online. As a celebrity, people think you’re not human and they say mean things as if they’re talking to a wall, but every now and then I have to remind people … people say rude sh*t, so I need to respond to them and teach them how to act.”

“I have a lot of Louboutins that are expensive, but my favorite pair are Giuseppes with diamonds hanging on the side. I can’t remember how much they cost.”
