Both designers and fashion bloggers alike heralded Rihanna's dress at last week's CFDA Awards - at which she won the Fashion Icon of the Year award - but one pair of fellow female musicians are voicing their dislike of the "Diamonds" singer's style.

Referring to Rihanna, T-Boz of TLC said, "Every time I see you you don't have to be naked... It's hard for us to say anything because any time we do, they say, 'Oh TLC must be jealous,' but I call a spade a spade."

Melissa McCarthy Snubbed by Designers for Oscars

Melissa McCarthy at 2012's OscarsMelissa McCarthy has revealed designers refused to make a dress in her size for the Oscar awards in 2012.

The Bridesmaids star, who has just created a line of plus-size clothing for women, admits a number of high-profile designers snubbed her request for the glamorous event.

"Two Oscars ago, I couldn't find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers - very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people - and they all said no," the star said in the July issue of Redbook.

Despite being busy with her new fashion venture, the 43-year-old actress has also been juggling her family life, and admits her marriage with Ben Falcone couldn't be better: "We have a great marriage." The couple, who tied the knot in 2005, haven't let their high level of fame change their relationship because the most important thing to them is their two daughters Vivian, seven, and Georgette, four.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Editorials, News

Kelly Osbourne and Kim KardashianKelly Osbourne is "disgusted" by the backlash against Kim Kardashian's Vogue cover.

The Fashion Police host doesn't think readers have the right to criticize the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and her rapper fiance, Kanye West, who front the latest edition of the magazine, after stars like Sarah Michelle Gellar have threatened to cancel their subscription to the prestigious publication.

In a blog post titled "MY THOUGHTS ON KIM AND KANYE ON VOGUE," she wrote: "People are even going so far as to cancel their subscriptions or bloggers [are] taking down the link to Vogue magazine. I don't want to even go into the awful things people have said about them. I find this disgusting. Regardless of whether or not you think Kim and Kanye are worthy enough [to] be on the cover ... it's not your decision to make. I do believe that would be up to [Editor] Anna Wintour."

Kelly urges fans to "be happy" for Kim and Kanye, who have nine-month-old daughter North together and are expected to wed this May.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian on the cover of 'Vogue'Anna Wintour thinks that Kim Kardashian has "real guts."

The Vogue editor, who previously had a frosty relationship with the reality TV star despite being close friends with her fiancee Kanye West, claims she decided to put the Keeping Up with the Kardashians beauty on the cover of the magazine's April edition because she admires Kim's "strength of character."

In her editor's letter for Vogue's Shape issue, the cover of which features the "New Slaves" hitmaker with his arms around Kim, who is wearing a strapless Lanvin wedding dress, the fashion icon, 64, writes, "There's barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian Wests haven't been able to master, and for good reason. Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world's spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that."

The "Who You Love" singer spent a total of $5 million on what he believed to be a collection of authentic luxury watches from dealer Robert Maron - a friend of Charlie Sheen - back in 2007, but was shocked to find one of the timepieces was a replica when he sent it off for repairs three years later.

According to TMZ, Mayer returned the watch and was given credit to buy another but now wants a refund for $656,000 he spent on seven other watches which Rolex have told him are counterfeit.

Kim Kardashian’s Designer Ban for North

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian with their childrenNorth West has been banned from wearing designer clothes until she is older.

The eight-month-old tot's parents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may be notorious fashionistas - with the rapper starting a separate career as a fashion designer - but she isn't going to be wearing anything too chic until she's grown a little more.

"[North] has not actually worn anything designer yet. Kids get dirty, she'll spit up. She moves around so much. I saw this one cute dress that was $500, and I was like, 'Absolutely not!' I just want her in little onesies or leggings," Kim told People.

Kim, 33, has previously shown off a number of designer items which have been set to her for North since her birth, but at the moment she's fine dressing her hand-me-downs from her older sister Kourtney, who has 20-month-old daughter Penelope. "Despite what it looks like on Instagram, my daughter is not spoiled at all. Kourtney saves everything from her daughter, and gives it to me. I tried to put North in a faux fur vest, but she hated it. She doesn't mind headbands [that don't] pull her hair," she added.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Rumors

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKanye West has allegedly confronted Anna Wintour after his fiancee Kim Kardashian was overlooked for the cover of Vogue magazine.

The 36-year-old rapper is reportedly "insulted" that the fashion editor, who he deems a close friend of his, picked filmmaker Lena Dunham over his beau for the cover of February's edition.

A source told RadarOnline that Kanye - who met with Anna at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge - argued that Kim is "just as talented as Lena, if not more so." The source added, "To Kanye it's insulting that his friend Anna is still refusing to even consider putting Kim on the cover of Vogue. He thinks Anna is listening to a bunch of 'know-nothing' corporate haters, as he put it. He's upset that Anna isn't willing to do him this personal favor and put Kim on the cover. Kanye knows that it's always been a huge dream of Kim's to be on the Vogue cover and Kanye wants to make it come true. If nothing else, Kanye is persistent."
