Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, News

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."

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: News

Bee Shaffer at this year's Met Gala

"I'm 5ft 5in and I have huge boobs, like I'm not going to wear the same thing as Karlie Kloss... I've never been fashion-forward, I'm not that interested in fashion. I kind of wear the same thing all the time or, I know it's cliched to say, but jeans and T-shirts."

- Bee Shaffer, the daughter of Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, explains why she never followed in her mom's footsteps (despite looking fabulous at this year's Met Gala - photo featured above).

Quote of the Day: British ‘Vogue’ Editor on Thin Models

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Health & Beauty, Models, News

Alexandra Shulman

"People always say 'Why do you have thin models? That's not what real people look like,' but nobody really wants to see a real person looking like a real person on the cover of Vogue... I think Vogue is a magazine that's about fantasy to some extent and dreams, and an escape from real life... People don't want to buy a magazine like Vogue to see what they see when they look in the mirror. They can do that for free... I get fed up with having to deal with the question of why are models thin, that sort of bores me."

- Alexandra Shulman, editor of Vogue UK, explains why you won't be seeing any real-sized models under her reign of the fashion glossy.

Jared Leto

“It’s really important that he doesn’t look like a woman - that’s the biggest challenge. It’s hard to have him not end up on the ‘best hair’ lists - and that definitely hasn’t been our intention. He does have amazing hair, so it’s kind of inevitable.”

- Jared Leto's hairstylist Chase Kusero talks about the challenges of perfecting the Dallas Buyers Club red carpet looks.

Quote of the Day: Prabal Gurung on Runway Diversity

Prabal Gurung

"I always say, cute is cute. Whether you're white, Asian, black — if you're cute, you're cute. I see no discrimination and I've never been like that. When I use a black model it's not because I want to make a statement. It's because I think they're beautiful... It's everyone' responsibility, whether it's the designer, stylists, writers, editors, to understand that beauty is universal. Come on — it's 2014."

- Nepalese-American designer Prabal Gurung addresses his feelings on diversity among models on the runways at this year's New York Fashion Week.

Linda Rodin

"I think the whole culture's screwed up... They retouch 20-year-olds. I work with them, and I see the pictures, and I know that they've retouched this and that and that and this. I just go, 'She doesn't even have any wrinkles!'"

- Linda Rodin - a 65-year-old model, former stylist, and successful owner to an eponymous skincare line - points out the absurdity with retouching young models in fashion campaigns these days.

Quote of the Day: Lady Gaga on Fashion

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, News

Lady Gaga

"Fashion is that thing that saved me from being sad. I've always cared about my costumes and my clothes. When I leave my apartment I like to look pretty for my fans but not [in a] hot sexy girl [way]—I don't care about that, I just want to make you feel something with what I wear. I want you to feel happy and enjoy the theatre of my life the way that I do. No matter what happens with my music and wherever I go that—that heart of that glamorous girl in New York will never be gone. This is who I am and its never been an act and its never been marketing. This is me all the way to my core and fashion is a big part of my life."

- "Applause" singer Lady Gaga claims that her eccentric style is all a part of her own personality and not a marketing act. Interesting, considering that Miley Cyrus is claiming that her appearance is all an act.

Greta Gerwig at the premiere of 'Her'

“I want to go a little bit more Sofia Vergara, if she were an awkward German girl... [My stylist Erin] helps guide me. Sometimes I’ll do that thing where I’m like, ‘Oh, I want to wear the weirdest dress on the rack!’ She’s like, ‘Greta... it’s just going to make you look weird.’ Sometimes I do it anyway, and she’s like, ‘Seriously, what did I just tell you!'"

Isaac Mizrahi: Too-Skinny Models Are a Problem of the Past

Isaac MizrahiFashion designer Isaac Mizrahi believes that models' body issues are a thing of the past.

Despite three fashion models dying in the past six years from eating disorders and some still coming out these days saying that they're recovering from eating disorders, Mizrahi claims that such issues are no longer problems in today's industry:

"I don't notice girls anymore in the majority who are sickly-looking. Even if they're tall and thin now, they look healthier to me. Not fat, not fatter, but they just look healthier. I mean this -- there was a moment when there was this whole heroin chic thing and it just looked terrible. It just looked terrible! And now everyone points at it and goes, 'Oh dear, that's terrible.' And the girls are encouraged to be thin, but I don't think they're encouraged to look like drug addicts anymore. I mean, I'm sure there are some designers who like the girls to look like drug addicts, but not on the whole the way it was for a good 10 years -- like, in the middle of the '90s to around 2002 or so. There was that thing going on, and it was sickening, absolutely sickening. I don't think it exists anymore."
