Fierce dresser Rihanna often texts her celebrity pals before big events to make sure their outfits don’t clash.
The “Rude Boy” singer - who is known for her eccentric fashion choices - revealed her biggest fear is showing up on the red carpet dressed in identical clothes to her friends Katy Perry and Lady Gaga.
“My worst nightmare would be a clash on the red carpet - so we all text each other before to make sure. We’re all kind of fearless with fashion. So Katy and I speak all the time about what we’re going to wear. And Gaga.”
Rihanna admitted she and Katy once came close to having an embarrassing fashion moment when they both chose the same Dolce and Gabbana dress to wear to the Metropolitan Institute Costume Gala. “One time we were going to the Met Ball, and Katy phoned me to check. We were like, ‘Oh My God’, we were both going in this dress by Dolce and Gabbana with Marilyn Monroe’s face all over it. She was like, ‘You can’t. I’ve had my nails done in mink and it matches the dress. I thought, seeing as she’d gone to all that effort, I’d let her wear it.”
So what is to become of Lady Gaga‘s infamous VMA meat dress? Beef jerky, of course! Unfortunately for die-hard monsters, it’s not jerky one can eat…
“The dress will go through a process where it becomes a sort of ‘jerky.’ The meat dries out, rather than rotting. But it shouldn’t be worn again,” said the designer of the dress, Franc Fernandez.
Additionally, it would appear as if the dress was the first and the last made of the animal parts: “There’s not going to be meat dresses in the future. This was made for a specific purpose. It’s what it is.”
Roy Storch would love to dress Natalie Portman.
The up-and-coming designer, who showcased his Spring/Summer collection at London’s Century Club on Monday as part of London Fashion Week, says he would be thrilled to see the stunning actress in one of his creations because she always looks so beautifully turned out.
“I would love to see someone like Natalie Portman in my dresses or maybe Charlize Theron. My style as far as a designer is concerned, is someone who dresses a person that is comfortable with what they’re doing, and they know what they like, they know their style. You can say, ‘Oh, here comes Natalie,’ and she’s dressed beautifully and she has her own unique style. I would also really love to dress Marion Cotillard - she is so chic. Also if I could have supermodel wear my clothes, it would have to be Claudia Schiffer.”
Despite being keen to dress famous women, Roy’s main aim with his collection is to make sure any female wearing one of his designs feels great in them: “With my design inspirations, I go back to Madeleine Vionnet, Balenciaga and I was taught in their way. My work really reflects a bit of Balenciaga and Madeleine Vionnet. I want women to feel great in my clothes no matter what their size.
“People have been saying some nice, wonderful things about me. Yet not one designer in town will loan me a dress… They only lend out a size 0 or 2. So I’m still struggling for someone to give me a darn dress.”

Jada Pinkett-Smith prepped her daughter Willow with some major styling cues (The Graduate much?) for her brother’s movie premiere, as she looked like a fierce human leopardess on the red carpet.

Is Willow Smith’s animal print look too ahead of her time or fiercely fabulous?
