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).

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, News,

David and Victoria BeckhamVictoria and David Beckham wore matching outfits to the Met Gala in New York City last night.

The 40-year-old fashion designer and her former soccer star husband, 39, both arrived at the star-studded charity event at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art wearing cream-colored outfits and posed happily for the cameras.

The former Spice Girls star - who has four children with her spouse - wore a stunning floor length gown, while her husband, who retired from soccer last year following a stint at French club Paris Saint Germain, paired his black bow tie and trousers with a cream suit jacket. And the couple had a great time at the annual event, with Victoria later tweeting, "So much fun tonight at the #MetGala Thank u team VB, amazing dress!!! I love u all x [sic]."

Meanwhile, "Drunk in Love" singer Beyonce was seen dropping a ring she was wearing on her right hand on the red carpet. Her husband, "Holy Grail" rapper Jay Z, swooped in to pick it up and stage a fake proposal, which the mother of his 2-year-old daughter Blue Ivy happily accepted.

Kim and Kanye to Have Three Wedding Ceremonies?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKim Kardashian will have three wedding ceremonies.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is set to tie the knot with her rapper fiance Kanye West once in Southern California and twice in France and the couple's lawyers have advised them to have their civil ceremony in the United States, since they're both American citizens, prior to their French nuptials on May 24 to avoid any unnecessary paperwork problems.

"Typically, the US recognizes citizens getting married in France, but dealing with a foreign government and paperwork could be a nightmare. So just to make sure it's legal, Kim and Kanye will first be having a civil ceremony in Southern California," a source said.

Kim and Kanye - who have nine-month-old daughter North together - will have to have a religious ceremony after the civil wedding because of French custom.

Janelle Monáe Won’t Dress Sexily

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, News,

Janelle MonaeJanelle Monae doesn't want to dress sexily.

The "Tightrope" singer feels her voice should be the main focus of people's attention when they are watching her perform, rather than her body.

"There are no women who perform fully clothed - still to this day there aren't. To me, that was a problem, to say 'If you want to be in the music industry, you need to be able to sell sex' ... I want to be in control of my body. I don't ever want a man or a woman to tell me to dress that way. I think its up to me."

Janelle, 28, also said she never takes too long thinking about her stage costumes, favoring black suits, because worrying about her wardrobe interferes with her creativity. "If I have to think about my outfit for longer than, like, two minutes, I've wasted my time. Who wants to think about, 'What am I going to wear to this performance?' I need to be focusing on creating, changing the world," she told Britain's Marie Claire.


Winona Ryder Wore a $10 Dress to the Oscars

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities,

Winona RyderWinona Ryder once wore a $10 dress to the Oscars.

The Girl, Interrupted star is an avid bargain hunter and lover of vintage clothes, and is also not afraid to recycle outfits she has previously worn to events. "Most of my wardrobe is vintage and I've worn dresses to the Oscars that I got for $10. At Sean Penn's last Haiti gala I wore this vintage dress that I'd worn to a film premiere in 2005. I know that's kind of a no-no in the fashion world, but why wear something just once if you love it?" she told Red magazine.

The 42-year-old actress rose to fame in the mid 80s while she was still a teenager and had continuing success in her 20s, which she says made her 30s hard, as her young looks meant she didn't always get picked for the roles she wanted: "My early thirties were rough. I went through stuff that I would have gone through, and probably should have gone through much younger, but I had spent my twenties working. Even when I was the right age for older roles, people thought of me as being younger. It was tough because I'd had so much success in my early twenties."


Items Du Jour: Anna Cozies Up to Kendall, Heidi for New Balance

+ She might not be on PETA's go-to list for "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" models anymore, but Khloe Kardashian made it clear in New York yesterday that she's still not wearing animal pelts, wearing a faux fur coat with the words "F**k Yo Fur" in red paint on the back.

Fashion Police: Brad and Angie’s His and Her Tuxes

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities,

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt at the BAFTAs

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt must think that couples who dress together are those who stay together...

The A-list couple were spotted on the BAFTA red carpet today wearing tuxes. While Angie's was clearly more suited for feminine wear (plunging neckline, 3/4 sleeves, see-through blouse, and undone bowtie hanging around her neck), Brad opted for a fairly traditional look. Is their matching formal wear adorably and fashionably cute or just downright annoying?
