The national media gets it wrong again. one headline this morning read: “Chris Brown Proves Money Can’t Buy Style In Ugly $7,000 Versace Jacket“.
Other media outlets also blasted Brown for dropping 7 stacks on the garish Versace for H&M bomber jacket.
But the jacket retails for only $129, according to the store’s website, and Upscalehype.com.
Brown, who has two women fighting for his affections (Rihanna and Karrueche), stepped out last night for the opening of “AV Nightclub” in Hollywood wearing the Versace for H&M Bomber jacket with a Los Angeles Lakers logo beanie, blue jeans, and Air Jordan Retro 4 sneakers ($160).

Beyonce won the unofficial Worst Dressed Award at the 2012 Metropolitan Museum Gala, themed “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations” in NYC Monday night. Beyonce arrived wearing a long sleeve, black sheer Givenchy Couture frock adorned with purple and black feathers. She looked like a confused peacock. What was she thinking?? No, those aren’t gloves she’s wearing; that’s the sleeve of the gown which covered her hands. Instead of wearing black underneath the gown, she wore a nude colored Spandex which did not match her skin. Everyone is buzzing about how hideous Beyonce looked last night. She attempted to outdress everyone at the gala but she only ended up making herself look ridiculous!

Beyonce’s sister Solange’s days as a singer are far behind her. The celebrity DJ is in high demand at A-list events. She is so popular as a DJ that her schedule is booked through 2012. Solonge was Monday night’s DJ at Gucci and GQ‘s private cocktail party at Gucci’s NYC flagship boutique. She wore “a one-of-a-kind black and beige textured zebra-printed jacket over a white georgette satin drapped body suit, leather mini skirt, and t-strap” according to JustJared. Solange was spotted chatting up James Franco at the party.
The 25-year-old sometime model accessorized her outfit with a pair of Gucci ‘Ophelie’ t-strap high heel sandals featuring black suede and gold color leather trim, antique gold metal chain detail, ankle strap with buckle closure and a leather sole on a 4.5 inch heel. The dainty sandals retail for $1,500.
Here are more pics from Beyonce’s People magazine cover shoot. Beyonce looks stiff and plastic in the overly Photoshopped images. Beyonce is a far cry from the World’s Most Beautiful Woman in these images. In the cover story, Beyonce revealed she is filming a new movie, ‘A Star Is Born’ later this year, after she performs a three-night stand at New Jersey’s Revel Resorts (May 25th, May 26th and May 27th). She is also recording the movie’s soundtrack. Bey probably won’t get to see much of her 3 month old daughter Blue Ivy. It’s a good thing she has nannies.

Remember you scoffed when I told you Rihanna wore silk pajamas to a “Battleship” promotional event in London last week? Well, she did it again — this time she wore Emilio Pucci silk pajamas to a “Battleship” photo call in Japan yesterday.
I don’t know why people are acting surprised. She wears pajamas to events because she’s Rihanna — and because she can.
From MTV Style:
…erm, are those pajamas Ri is wearing on the red carpet?? *slooooow squinting side eye*
Come on, now, this is the girl who can make a turtleneck look fly! What is she doing letting her flawless physique drown in this azure chinoiserie set?
It’s not even totally the Emilio Pucci pajama-esque ensemble’s fault. On the runway, it looks more avant garde than snooze button, but why? We’d guess one variable is the waist tie, which in Pucci’s Fall 2012 Fashion Week presentation is quite broad, pulling together more of an hourglass shape. Rihanna’s Battleship cincher is a bit haphazardly skinny, and consequently, it leaves the outfit looking to be very ill-fitted and too all-over baggy.
Fans of cartoon rapper Nicki Minaj, 29, formed a line outside Best Buy in the Harlem borough of New York City more than 24 hours before she made a fashionable entrance into the store. Nicki didn’t disappoint, wearing a platinum blond wig, black leotards, a starry body suit under a black satin cropped jacket, and animal print pumps. Her sophomore album, Roman Reloaded, dropped yesterday. The CDs were immediately scooped up by her rabid fans who are eager to hear Nicki’s schizophrenic rhymes. Fans screamed her name as she made her way into the Best Buy for a CD signing. Nicki is confident that Roman Reloaded will top the sales of her critically acclaimed debut album. Pink Friday debuted at #2 with over 1.7 million in sales.
