From fashion steals to how wearing leggings can make you fat, we’re covering some of the best ugly gossip out there! Here’s this week’s Ugly Gossip featuring the good, the bad, and the (really) UGLY!
10. Celebrities Tweet Thoughts About Osama Bin Laden
Celebrities like Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Jimmy Kimmel weighed in their “140 characters or less” responses to recent Osama Bin Laden’s death. While we understand that it’s free speech, some tweets did get a bit too overboard. See them here_.
9. Beyonce Gets Boo’d at the MET Gala
Ginnifer Goodwin and Gisele stunned the audience in bold colours during this year’s MET Gala, but Beyonce didn’t get the same praise. In photos, Beyonce looked totally fab in the late designer’s (Alexander McQueen) embellished gown. However, in person, the gorgeous gown was too tight on Ms. B. Her hubby and another assistant had to help her up the stairs! Because her dress was too tight, photographs were cut short, and the paps ended up booing the couple! Watch the video here.
8. Madonna Gets Self-Conscious During the MET Gala
While Queen B got booed, critics and onlookers loved Madonna’s silky blue gown, designed by Stella McCartney. She looked fit and polished on the red carpets, however the star felt anything but that. During the gala, she revealed that she felt fat, shocking onlookers and the paparazzi. Known for her sculpt body and healthy diet, it’s a disbelief that even the word “fat” would come out of the singer’s mouth. Well, at least we know that even celebrities feel self-conscious sometimes!
7. Kate Middleton’s Waist Gets Even Smaller!
(And you thought that we were done covering the royal couple from last week’s Ugly Gossip post!) It’s a fact that Kate Middleton has always been skinny, but a month before their royal wedding, critics weren’t too happy about Kate’s slimming waist, especially with her collarbone plain in sight. On the opposing side, Grazia magazine thought Kate needed to be skinnier and showed us by photoshopping her waistline on their recent cover. Not only does Kate need NOT to be skinnier, but even us editors here at EverybodyIsUgly could do a better photoshopping than that!
6. Kanye West’s Fantasy Comes True!
About a month ago, we’ve mentioned that Kanye West would be designing a scarf collection, inspired by his album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. It seems that Kanye’s fantasy has finally come true! His scarves will be sold exclusively at Collette and MMParis.com this upcoming Monday. With some assistance from Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag, Kanye’s 5-piece silk collection will be selling at $370 each. If you plan to buy one on Monday, you better be fast because there are only 100 scarves for each print!
5. Buy Alexander McQueen’s “Armadillos” for Only $25!
While Kanye’s scarves may not be totally affordable (and accessible) to the general public, you may have something to smile about when you hear this! The famed “Armadillo” boot can’t be bought anywhere (only 21 in the world were made), but you can buy a miniature one for $25.00. How mini is it? Well, let’s just say that you can’t exactly wear the shoe since it’s only four inches tall! Just because you don’t fit in it doesn’t mean that your doll can’t look stylish in a pair of “Armadillos!” You can purchase them at the MET store.
4. Missoni Collaborates with Target
Just yesterday, Target announced that their upcoming high-end designer collaboration would be with Italian fashion house, Missoni. Though no photos have been released just yet, Target did indicate that the collection would include men and women’s clothing, home products, and even baby clothing. The pricing can go anywhere from $2.99 to $599.99 (yes, this is not a typo)! Thankfully, most products would be less than $40! Too bad we can’t get our hands on them until September 13th.
3. Get Your Lips Tattooed This Summer!
Coloured lips are so last season, why not tattoo your lips instead? Not only would it make it statement, they also make your lips plump and stand out. Don’t worry, though, these tattoos are temporary! With the increasing trend of stick-on nails, companies like Violent Lips decided to jump on the bandwagon – except on lips instead. The company offers a variety of nifty designs (i.e., animal print, polka dots) while costing about $15 each DIY lip application. Too bad the lip “tattoo” only lasts until you start moving your lips. At least we’ll know Ke$ha may be interested!
2. Wearing Leggings Will Make You Fat
According to physiotherapist, Sammy Margo, wearing leggings cause your muscles to relax, resulting in flabby unflattering legs, tummy, and butt. She further explains that leggings hold up our muscles, resulting the muscles to become “lazy” and not do their job! The solution? Just exercise, and get your legs toned up so that your muscles don’t get used to them hugging pants!
1. All Moms are Style Icons!
Since it’s Mother’s Day this coming Sunday, we thought that we’d dedicate this week’s Ugly Post to all the fashionista moms out there! There’s an awesome blog, My Mom, the Style Icon (and now book!), to celebrate everyday as mother’s day – featuring styles of different moms back in the day! It’s where you can share your mom’s pasts outfits and story about her life and fashion sense. You, too, can submit your mom’s photographs to the site to be possibly featured! Happy Mother’s Day!
What did you think of this week’s Ugly Gossip? Will we be seeing any of you gals get the “lip tattoo” treatment?
Or, let us know via EverybodyIsUgly’s Twitter! We try our best to tweet back! (@EverybodyIsUgly)
