Similarly, a 'fashion faux pas' is a tactless violation of fashion standard customs and/or rules of etiquette -- such as wearing a knockoff designer dress on national television.

Rihanna shows off fashion accessory

Rihanna never ceases to push the envelope of common decency, whether it's a partially nude fashion statement or a raunchy music video that inflames the senses.

Earlier today, the Bajan alcoholic and drug abuser tweeted a photo of her latest fashion accessory.

The caption under the photo read: "Super impressive!!! Thank you to my Westwood family!! #VivienneWestwoodLondon"

It isn't clear if she is referring to the size of the thing or the quality of the material. See what it is after the break.

  • Beyonce's sister, Solange Knowles, 26, attended the official debut party for 'Absolut Tune' vodka held at The Standard Hotel in New York City Tuesday. Solo's style game is usually on point, but the caked on foundation and her see-through frock exposing her left breast is a bit much. I would expect this sort of Fashion Fail from her sister, not from Solange. She gets points for her Roman sandals, though.

    I blame Hip Hop for this. Yes, that's a female thug being hauled into a NY police station after she was arrested for a NY subway stabbing that left one man injured.

    According to Splash News, police arrested a pack of drunken young female thugs on the downtown No. 6 train after they stabbed a 63-year-old man who had the nerve to ask them to keep their noise down, police said. The man was on his way to work as a vendor near the World Trade Center at about 6:15 a.m., a law-enforcement source told The New York Post.

    Sportswear giant Adidas is catching heat for "promoting slavery" by manufacturing 'shackle shoes' trainers.

    The JS Roundhouse mids feature the LA Lakers' orange and purple colors with orange cuffs links that are similar to the shackles worn by Africans during the lucrative slave trade in the south.

    The promotional copy for the shoe ads posted on Facebook reads: "Got a sneaker game so hot you lock your kicks to your ankles?"

    But activists and Facebook users reacted with anger at the premise of Adidas promoting slavery with the shackle shoes.

    More than 2000 Facebook users labeled the shoes "offensive" and referred to Adidas as "ignorant" for the insensitive promotional campaign.

    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!

    Remember last weekend when the paparazzi caught troubled rapper Kanye West with his pants down around his thighs as he emerged from a chauffeured limo with bestie, Kim Kardashian? Well, Kim has an explanation for that.

    From E! Online:

    "He was getting out of the car and his belt got pulled by this hook on the car door and he was trying to pull it up quick and his belt was really heavy," says Kim, Kanye's frequent companion as of late, in an exclusive interview with E! News at E!'s upfronts presentation.

    "It's called a wardrobe malfunction," sister Kourtney explains to her sibling.

    "It was a wardrobe malfunction, but it wasn't anything intentional," Kim says. "It was not scandalous."

    Yeah, right, Kim. Are you sure it has nothing to do with the rumors that the show's producers predict your fake relationship with Kanye is not going to be enough to save the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians?

    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.

    Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Kim Zolciak was spotted wearing a teal blue skin tight dress outside NBC studios in NYC today. Zolciak wobbled into the studio on 6-inch Christian Louboutin pumps. She announced her pregnancy with her 4th child in March. This will be the 2nd baby for her husband Kroy Biermann of the Atlanta Falcons. If you want to blame someone for Kim's outfit, blame stylist Shaun Melson (in the camo pants). Shaun also dresses Diva Monica Brown, rapper Gucci Mane, and others.
