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

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Fashion Designers,

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.

Madonna Sued Over Hard Candy Name

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Fashion Designers, News,

MadonnaMadonna is being sued over her fitness brand.

The "Hung Up" hitmaker has been accused by beauty and fashion company Hard Candy of maliciously stealing their name to sell exercise DVDs and apparel and the firm have filed a lawsuit in federal court for trademark infringement and unfair competition.

The case claims the 55-year-old singer began selling her goods under the Hard Candy name in 2011 despite a previous rejection from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. "Defendants' actions have caused and will cause Hard Candy, LLC irreparable harm for which money damages and other legal remedies are inadequate. Unless Defendants are restrained by this Court, Defendants will continue and/or expand the improper activities alleged in this Complaint and otherwise continue to cause great and irreparable harm and injury to Hard Candy, LLC," federal court papers obtained by RadarOnline.com state.

The lawsuit also targets Madonna's manager Guy Oseary, but claims the "Material Girl" singer is "the driving force behind the infringing activity, taking credit herself for the initial selection and subsequent expansion."

Behold: Kim Kardashian's wedding dress has been revealed!

After months of speculation regarding which designer the reality star was going to wear for her wedding, People reports that the long-sleeved floral pattern design (above) was designed by none other than Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy. For those more familiar with Kim and less about fashion, he's the designer who famously dressed the 33-year-old in what made her look like an old lady's sofa at last year's Met Gala.

Tisci apparently also dressed Kim's groom, Kanye West, for their wedding - which took place in Florence, Italy yesterday.

David Beckham Still Not Used to Seeing His Underwear Billboards

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Editorials, Models,

David BeckhamDavid Beckham's mum calls him up when she sees billboards of him in his underwear.

The retired soccer star - who recently launched a new swimwear range for H&M - still isn't used to seeing himself fronting brand campaigns in next to nothing and neither is his mother, Sandra.

When asked about whether he gets used to seeing himself on giant billboards, he told ShortList magazine, "I don't think so. Especially not when I've got my mum calling me up saying, 'I've just seen another huge billboard of you in London - just you, in your underwear.'"

Although at first David - who has children Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 11, Cruz, nine, and Harper, two, with wife Victoria - was embarrassed by the prospect of allowing the world to see him half-naked, he has grown used to it, but he was left red faced in New Jersey during the Super Bowl where there were millions of posters of himself all over the city: "But it is what it is. At first I was like, 'Oh my God I'm sat there in my underwear and everyone around the world can see it.' This year at the Super Bowl it was ridiculous. I've never seen so many billboards of myself in one city. Every corner I turned, every street, I was there, so it was verging on embarrassing after a while."
