Tweet Designer Stephen Sprouse did camouflage-print designs based on screenprints by Andy Warhol in 1987 and 1988.

Tweet Ten days ago, the Internet was in an uproar after Beyoncé Instagrammed a picture of herself sporting a 1980s-perky-news-anchor pixie cut. Everyone was all excited, debating whether she’d taken out her weave or cut her real hair. I was skeptical, though.

Tweet Rihanna announced her second collection for high-street retailer River Island yesterday. It features lots of camouflage in both traditional green/khaki and black/gray/white.

Tweet I went to see Rihanna at Barclays Center on May 5 and took one of my best-ever concert photos! When Bad Gal RiRi first came out in this costume, it took me a moment to realize what the print was. Then I thought, “Bitch stole my style again!” First, she ran off with a […]

Tweet Earlier this month, Lindsay Lohan — the once-promising actress and former customer of mine who is now best known as a death-pool perennial — avoided a stint in jail by agreeing to spend 90 days in rehab.  When the news came out, I immediately thought of singers Tristan Prettyman and Anya Marina, who have […]
