The internet is debating whether singer Monica rocked a hand-sewn imitation Fendi outfit for her Versuz battle with former nemesis Brandy Norwood.

Lipstick Alley denizens and gossipmongers spent hours picking apart Monica's outfit down to the stitching.

They zoomed in on the loose threads and what appeared to be part of a zipper sticking out of her top.

Verzuz viewers must have thought the outfit was authentic Fendi. They called the Atlanta store the next morning hoping to purchase it. But store employees broke the bad news that the outfit wasn't an original Fendi look.

What gave it away? Maybe it was the slipshod handiwork of whomever Monica hired to stitch the outfit together.

One LA denizen wrote, "She needs to come up to nyc and visit dapper dan....no shade tho."

Another wrote: "They were calling Fendi for this? Monica looked a mess. Those colors are not good for 'tv'. And the all over print? Come on now, Mo. Not even going to touch Brandy’s choices..."

And a third wrote: "Not saying its real or fake but why would someone like Monica wear fake fendi on something that would have alot of viewers?? That stitching is looking sus tho. And then what's that black piece sticking out?"

Fashion designer Michael Costello drew backlash on Instagram when he commented under a Kylie Jenner post after she tagged the designer of her birthday dress.

The drama ensued after Kylie posted an Instagram image of her 23rd birthday dress on Wednesday, August 12.

She captioned the image: "thank you my love @olivier_rousteing for the most perfect bday dress..."
 

Costello was outraged when he saw Kylie tag the designer of her birthday dress. Costello has designed dresses for Kylie for free - and he never got a shout out from her on social media.

Costello took to Instagram and posted a lengthy comment on Jenner's post, calling her out for not always tagging fashion designers like him in her social media posts.

Costello, pictured with Nicole Scherzinger, said he's not the only one who designed free dresses for Kylie and never got tagged in her posts.

"For example, Bryan Hearns makes a lot of dresses for Kylie and no one ever gives him any credit and he deserves it. Makeup artists and stylists are getting tagged but the clothing designers are not."

Costello's outburst went viral on social media, and stars such as Lala Kent and Savannah Chrisley shared their negative experiences with him.

Kent wrote: "I literally blew him up to make my custom wedding dress-he would have gotten all the 'tags & @'s' he's talking about. But I never heard back from him. why? Because I'm not 'big enough.' So cool out, Costello - you do the same s--t."

Costello apologized for his meltdown, telling Us Weekly, "I have no issues or beef with Kylie Jenner."

"I love her. The reason I commented on her post is because she is often tagging some designers but not others."

He continued:

"In regards to me, there is no bad air. Kylie has worn my outfits about four or five times. She didn't tag me in posts but her stylist has and she acknowledges me in person and says how much she appreciates my work. I just want the public to see what is happening with the designers and how we are often doing work for free for no credit."

Question: Was Costello wrong to call out Kylie for not tagging designers who give her free dresses?

Pattinson hates a lot of his old red carpet looks, but his fashion choice for the London premiere in Harry Potter & The Goblet Of Fire in 2005 was the worst or the worst.

Lizzo and Tommy Hilfiger are teaming up to launch a new thong line based on the pop singer's own extensive line of stretched out thongs.

Back in December, Hilfiger, 68, announced he was interested in working with Lizzo on an upcoming line. His people reached out to her people, and she is down to launch a new line featuring her signature thongs.

TMZ bumped into Lizzo after she snagged the Entertainer of the Year award at the 2020 NAACP Image Awards over the weekend. When she was asked about her plans for a new line, she confirmed she was in touch with the famed designer.

The morbidly obese singer is known as much for her exhibitionism as she is for her singing. She caught heat last year when she twerked in a black thong and a black cut out tee at a Los Angeles Lakers game.

The 31-year-old singer spends a great deal of time exposing herself on social media.

This form of exhibitionism is diagnosed as Exhibitionist disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Edition 5 (DSM-5). The sufferer is sexually aroused when people view her naked or partially nude body.

Exhibitionism is more common in men.

Nicki says she owes her svelte new figure to her crash diet. Nicki revealed she is only 20 pounds away from her ideal weight. During an episode of her popular Queen Radio talk show, Nicki said she delayed her diet because she lacked discipline.

She said she didn't think she had what it took to stick with the strict diet plan, WENN.com reported.

"I was trying to do this diet and I kept putting it off. I didn't think I could have the discipline in what I ate. Once my mind was committed to it, my body committed to it. I'm still 20 pounds away from my goal weight."

The "Yikes" rapper said, "I channeled all of my power and now I have control of it. I control how it manifests in my life." She encouraged her readers to do the same, but she cautioned her followers that no one is perfect.

"I've been talking about that this year too, about being kind to yourself, and allowing yourself to be human. While at the same time, being motivated and powerful, but also treating yourself as if you love yourself too, and being easy on yourself. Like, nothing and no one is perfect."

Billy Porter toned down his usually flamboyant red carpet style for the 92nd Annual Oscar Awards held at L.A.'s Dolby Theatre on Feb 9, 2020. The 50-year-old actor wore a Giles Deacon Couture gold feather top with a printed floor length "Cupola gown" skirt. It was an understated look from last year's head-turning Christian Siriano tuxedo dress, which caused a commotion when Porter wore it to a taping of an upcoming episode of Sesame Street. Everyone is in agreement that Porter's feminine attire is inappropriate for minor children.
