HEADLINES: Tavi Calls Out Her Haters, Rihanna Returns to a ‘Hopeless Place’, and Shailene Woodley’s Footwear is Offensive.

This makes me sad. Rihanna and that turd who beat her have been secretly hooking up! Well, according to US Magazine, so take this with a grain of salt. Rihanna’s rep had no comment on the matter, however Chris Brown’s rep did. And while he did shoot down a romance, he confirmed the two are friendly. FRIENDLY? Why RiRi why? Have you seen the end of your “We Found Love” video? (Us Magazine)

So not only is she consciously choosing to date someone with the name Ned Rocknroll, she’s consciously choosing to dress like twinsies too? Come on, Kate. (Lainey Gossip)

Ugh. The hair is back! You’d think he’d have severe neck damage from constant whiplash by now. I mean this haircut is a liability in more ways than one. And don’t even talk to me about that jacket! I. CAN’T. DEAL. (Styleite)

Kate Hudson has replaced Demi Moore as the new face of Ann Taylor. Right, as if Kate Hudson would ever be caught dead wearing Ann Taylor. And poor Demi. As if she didn’t already feel old enough now that her zygote of a husband has left her. This, surely, won’t help. (The Cut)

Tavi Gevinson calls out her haters in an interview with BBC. And she does a pretty decent job! But it will never NOT creep me out hearing 15-year-old talk about ‘fetishization’. It just won’t. (Fashionista)

Damon Baker gives a revealing, yet juvenile, interview to Stylelist. The 20-year-old photographer could use some maturity lessons from Tavi. Anyway, my favourite part? When he says he met Andrej Pejic in a strip club – he was on the pole and Andrej was his audience! Juice! (Stylelist)

I always remained neutral when it came to Shailene Woodley; didn’t love her, didn’t hate her. But that girl just crossed me. Wearing these shoes, period, is unforgivable. Let alone to a Globes party. It’s a shame too; if she had better style we could’ve been friends. (In Style)

Toronto Fashion Week: Pink Tartan Keeps it Pretty & Andrej Pejic Continues to Intrigue Us.

One half of Toronto’s very own design couple du jour, Kim Newport-Mimran, showed her spring/summer 2012 Pink Tartan collection last Wednesday night in front of a packed (to the brim) house. One of the main draws of Toronto Fashion Week; Newport-Mimran showed a mostly black, white and navy blue collection with pops of red, orange and sparkle. While nothing was particulairly groundbreaking or inventive the collection was cohesive and consistent with Newport-Mimran’s simple, chic and well-fitting aesthetic of seasons past.

Starlets are Trying to Make Mini Horses the New Chihuahua, Blake Lively is a Liar and FHM Crosses the Line into Unforgivable. These headlines and more:

Wiz Khalifa took a page from Jay-z’s book and professed his love for his “little munchy wunchy crumb cake” on his blog. Kanye’s pain is Wiz’s gain. (The LVLS!X)

What is with everyone and mini horses lately? Rachel Antonoff is the latest celebrity to embrace these little nuggets. As if the mini-horse is the new teacup pup, an accessory for the rich and famous. Screw that, it’s not a ‘my little pony’. You can’t dress it up with glitter, paint and stickers! We don’t live in CandyLand!  (Refinery 29)

Nicole Richie has released her Winter Kate Fall 2011 Lookbook, and it’s good. Typical Nic, bohemian 70’s with a twist. However, these hemlines are probably suitable for L.A. fall, but my fellow Canadians and I are probably going to have to pull out the leggings. (Fabsugar)

Vogue Italia’s Franca Sozzani has followed through with her initiative (kind of) to feature content for all women by casting three ‘plus-sized’ models on the cover of her June issue. Amazing! However I’ve spoken out before about her website design being rather contradictive. I say lose all the titles, they’re not “Black models” or “plus-sized models” they’re just models. And for the record – vet Crystal Renn is a model, period. No adjectives needed. (Fashionologie)

More nudie pictures of Blake Lively were released this morning in response to the denials from Blake’s camp, which begs the question ‘who is behind this?’ Was it a resentful Penn, or a ‘Super Producer’ trying to regain control over his Marchesa wearing starlet (yup, that’s a hint)? And how is Leo going to react? My girl Lainey is ALL over it. (Lainey Gossip)

FHM removes article about Andrej Pejic that accompanied his listing as #98 on their “Sexiest Women in World” list. However, StyleCaster has dug up the vanished article and it isn’t pretty. FHM called Andrej a ‘thing’, a ‘gender bender’ and commented that if he were to pose for Victoria’s Secret “pass the sick bucket.” Seriously? I freaking need a ‘sick bucket’ after reading this puke-worthy ignorance. (Style Caster)

So now Thailand wants to ban tourists from getting Buddha tattoos. First of all that’s racist if it’s only a ban on ‘tourist’ because it implies all tourist are incapable of respecting or practicing Buddhism. Second of all, the majority of the world is secular now, so if you want to continue to be a tourist country you need to follow suit. Imagine if the Pope just flat out banned all tattoos of crosses, prayers, pictures of Jesus and angels etc.? Please don’t act like you’re the only ones experiencing religion’s merge into popular culture. Pick your freaking battles! (Huffpost World)
