Paris-bound According to
WWD and the
New York Times, Alexander Wang has landed the coveted top position at Balenciaga.
"An announcement of his appointment could be made as early as next week,” writes Cathy Horyn. “He will bring a different perspective, certainly a strong urban sensibility.”
Verdict: Slow clap for Wang’s promotion. Congrats!
Here we go again Poor Jessica Simpson just popped out her first kid, Maxwell, seven months ago. She was pregnant for like 15 years. She only just shed the last of the baby weight—all 70 pounds of it. And now she’s accidentally preggo again.
Verdict: Single tear because that’s a lot of kids to come out of one person in a year and a half, but at least J.Simps can
eat slutty brownies again without violating her Weight Watchers contract.
Parents of the year
Jada Pinkett Smith is firing back at people who have critiqued her daughter Willow’s decision to buzz her head. “The question is why I would LET Willow cut her hair," Pinkett writes in an open letter on Facebook. "First the LET must be challenged. This is a world where women, girls are constantly reminded that they don’t belong to themselves; that their bodies are not their own, nor their power or self-determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know her boy, spirit and her mind are HER domain.” Um, amazing. Not to be outdone, Will Smith added his two cents in an interview with
Parade. “We let Willow cut her hair. When you have a little girl, it’s like, how can you teach her that you’re in control of her body? If I teach her that I’m in charge of whether or not she can touch her hair, she’s going to replace me with some other man when she goes out in the world.”
Verdict: I love this so much.
