It’s everyone’s favorite day— FRIDAY! This week there were some interesting happenings. Get an overview of it all out below!
TIMES STYLE ICON LIST HONORS “TERRIBLE” PEOPLE
Time Magazine recently released their 100 Style Icons list and it’s ruffling a lot of feathers. Naomi Campbell and John Galliano made the list. Icons? Maybe. Controversial? Certainly. Do they deserve to be honored by a highly regarded magazine? You be the judge.

On April 1st, our duo editors Iris and Daniel played a little joke, pretending that they split up and created separate blogs, Iris The Intellectual Princess Cat and Yves Warhol, via Twitter. Although we do like the idea of the “intellectual princess cat” (seriously, we do…) thank goodness it was a joke!
SEA OF SHOES VERSUS NY MAG
The big drama in online fashion this week was between Jane Aldridge, the blogger behind Sea of Shoes, and Charlotte Cowles of NY Mag’s The Cut. It all started when Cowles quoted from a not too flattering article about Aldridge from the reputable Texas Monthly which was published a while ago but seems to have only gotten attention after it was featured on The Cut (read it here). See Aldridge’s rebuttal and what went down here.
DON’T HATE ME BECAUSE I’M PRETTY
Samantha Brick quickly became one of the most (un)popular British “journalists” this week when she wrote an article about herself titled ‘There are downsides to looking this pretty’: Why women hate me for being beautiful for the Daily Mail UK. The best/worst part is that it wasn’t a joke. She was serious! Anyway, read it here (plus she wrote a rebuttal—what is with those this week?).
RIHANNA DRESSED IN PAJAMA STYLE
The whole “wear your PJs outside” thing has become one of the popular trends for spring. Rihanna, who’s been out promoting her new flick Battleship, recently went out looking like a sleeping beauty bombshell. Do you think she pulls it off?
