A NY Times writer is on the hot seat for questioning singer Beyonce‘s status as a fashion Icon. Writer Vanessa Friedman questioned why the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland included 7 of Beyonce’s tour costumes in an exhibit in the Legends of Rock section. Friedman notes that Beyonce is not a legend of rock music, nor is she a fashion icon.
Reality TV personality EJ Johnson was spotted on the Upper East Side of Manhattan wearing the same mosaic print shawl/scarf as fashionista Kim Kardashian. I Googled in vain for the designer of the scarf (in case some of you might want to add this unique accessory to your wardrobe). Maybe longtime reader Man (our resident expert on all things Kardashian) knows the designer of this scarf?

How are you? Just wanted to send you a picture of Rihanna and Rita Ora (most recent outing) wearing the same Christian Dior Little Black Dress. And Rita Ora slays more to me in the dress than Rihanna. A friend of mine in Rihanna’s camp tells me Rihanna is well aware of Rita’s sudden increase in media and on blogs, so look for Rihanna and her team to be making more headlines this summer to prevent Rita from slipping through the cracks. I told my friend in Rihanna’s camp Rita Ora still needs a hit record to come for Rihanna like Iggy Azalea has done with her hit single “Fancy” for Nicki Minaj’s rap throne, and she agreed. I hope you are having a great weekend!
