Though summer’s technically not over, I think it’s time to take a look back at everything that happened these summer months. There was a LOT. What do you think was the most shocking? The most WTF? The best fashion moment? Let’s vote!
In case you need a refresher, here are some links to these stories: (more…)

Rihanna is always changing her look so as to stay at the ~forefront of fashion~, and her hair is one thing that has gone through a million and one changes over the past couple of years alone. From a short pixie cut to long, straight locks, she’s tried pretty much everything, it seemed… until now. That’s right, Rihanna’s got a jheri curl. How’s THAT for fierce?
After uploading the photo to Instagram, fans started comparing her to Whitney Houston, Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes (whut?) and Jennifer Beals. HAHA! People are so weird. Here’s what accompanied the photo:
“Still tryna get used to my hurr, so I threw on some #redlipstick #RIRIWoo
Rihanna, I’m so disappointed. I thought grey was the new black? What happened there? I like curls myself so I’m not totally put off by this, despite the fact that however she’s styled it makes it look like a mullet.

Remember when Rihanna sued Topshop’s parent company, Arcadia Group Brands Ltd, for $5 million for using her image on some of their products without permission between 2011 – 2012? Hilariously, she later asked for free stuff from the company, apparently, but that’s neither here nor there. The latest is that she won the lawsuit – hurray!
From Digital Spy:
Topshop’s lawyers had claimed the 25-year-old was making an unjustifiable bid to establish a “free-standing image right” over use of her picture in the UK.
In a hearing at London’s High Court today (July 31), Mr Justice Birss ruled that while there is “no such thing as a general right by a famous person to control the reproduction of their image” and “the mere sale by a trader of a T-shirt bearing an image of a famous person is not an act of passing off”, he considered Topshop to be at fault in this case.
No word on how much money she got for the inconvenience or whether they had to pony up the full $5 mil. That’ll teach you to use someone’s image without her permission, I guess.

Smoking weed used to make me mad emotional (and not always in the crying way) when I was in my stoner days, so maybe that’s what’s behind Rihanna‘s recent on-stage breakdown in Lille, France, after she finished performing ‘Stay’. Even she admitted she didn’t know why she was crying. Was it the song? Was it the fact that the concert was almost over? Was it her realisation of the fact that her fans allow her to have her ridonk lifestyle of 24/7 partying? Was she thinking about Chris Brown? Was someone cutting onions in the audience? So many questions, so few answers.
“I love my French fans, I love you all so much. I can’t believe this shit. Y’all make me so happy. This is everything that matters to me – to stand here and feel the love in this room…The ‘Diamonds’ tour is nearly coming to an end and it’s sad. I hate this part – I hate saying goodbye…”
“I don’t know what the fuck I’m crying about.”
Neither do we!
Also, I don’t really know what she’s talking about when she says the ‘Diamonds’ tour is nearly over. She still has Oslo, Bergen, Helsinki and then China, Singapore and Australia to get through. If that’s “almost over”, well… it’s not. That’s not almost over.
On a side note, ‘Diamonds’ is a really good song. And so is ‘Stay’.

Rihanna is always at the forefront of fashion, so it’s no surprise that she’s capitalizing on the super underground Memaw trend and decided to dye her hair grey. I think she looks a bit like someone out of X-Men or something, which isn’t a bad thing at all. I’m a big fan of grey hair – I can’t wait until mine goes grey – I just hope the whole head goes all at once, like overnight or something. That’s a good look.
Here are the fascinating and totally useful things Rihanna had to say about her new style:
“New color ice grey ish, call it #Brrr Grey is the new black! Blondies, it’s quiet for y’all!”
Now see, I’m not sure that’s how “____ is the new black” is really used, girl, but I’mma let you go with that. You got the spirit behind it right, and I guess that’s what really matters.
What do you think of her new look? You can’t even really tell it’s all that grey in the photos – it’s almost just like she could be in a particularly sunny patch of the room. Full on silver would be amazing, but I like this look.

Rihanna‘s fashion choices baffle me. She didn’t always dress this tacky, I’m sure of it. Tacky is only one of the fine words I could use to describe the large gold gun earrings she showed off on Instagram. But I think this Slutz crop top is even worse. The shirt alone is diabolical and the rest of the outfit doesn’t help.
What do you think?
