Brand whores rejoice! Think you can’t be a fashion icon AND have yellow pit stains and a coffee/soup melange up and down the front of your crisp white tee? Think again! You can walk around with a clean white t-shirt for a minimum of 10 minutes before somebody walking by with a greasy croissant looks at you funny, while representing one of Italy’s most elite brands. On Farfetch, is a Hanes Beefy-T with a small Prada logo sewed onto it for the prohibitive price $410, guaranteeing you will be one of a very select group of assholes who own the new Prada logo piqué T-shirt. Go ahead, treat yourself!
Everyone knows I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of dude so whenever I hear anything about fashion I feel like Anne Hathaway in the first half of The Devil Wears Prada. And no, the makeover never happens. I’m pretty much Anne Hathaway all the time. However, I’m smart enough to understand that the news of fashion icon Rihanna gearing up to unleash a new fashion house under the powerful luxury group LVMH is a huge deal.
These country music stars are just not wilin’ out like they used to. This year’s red carpet at the Country Music Association Awards was tamer ‘enna a mule caught a nibblin’ in the marijuana patch. In fact, the only person on the red carpet to go full Nudie was the yodeling Walmart kid, who I guess is country famous now. You know, I yodeled in a Walmart once and never got invited to the CMAs. Of course I was yodeling through there with a quickness and headed straight for the bathroom; road-trip coffee diarrhea is nothing to joke about. For the most part, the ladies kept it simple with selections from the Gunne Sax prom collection, and the gentleman chose one or two items from the Sheplers catalog and paired them with black jeans. Of course, there were a few stand-out looks.
Crazy-Ex Girlfriend creator and star Rachel Bloom thinks people in Hollywood should talk more openly about money. Rachel appeared on the digital Fall cover of Allure Magazine and shared a few shocking (by Hollywood standards) opinions about transparency in pay (it’s a good thing and helps to address the wage gap), as well the way in which stars “shop” for the red carpet. Rachel thinks the rich and famous should buy their couture instead of always borrowing it. And she came to this opinion the hard way after an incredulous Giuliana Rancic could hardly believe she bought the Gucci gown she was wearing at the 2017 Emmys with actual U.S. currency; a revelation that generated numerous headlines at the time.
Princess Beatrice stole the show, fashion-wise, at Duchess Kate and Prince William’s wedding back in 2011 when she showed up wearing a hat that looked like one of The Queen’s more decorative toilet seat covers. There must be something in Bea’s DNA that inspires some truly wonky formal hat choices. Because Fergie did not disappoint in the hat department on the wedding day of her daughter Princess Eugenie today.
The official premiere for A Star Is Born, which has had what feels like THE LONGEST rollout in all of movie history, happened last night at The Shrine Auditorium in LA. There were a lot of randos on the red carpet, but it turns out there were a lot of randos in the movie. We all know that it stars Lady Gaga as Ally The Ingénue and Bradley Cooper as Jackson Maine The Leather Satchel. But you might be surprised to learn that the cast also includes Andrew Dice Clay as Lorenzo The Geriatric DJ (judging from his outfit last night) and Willam Belli as Emerald The Real Star, Henny.
