Oh, Boy: Jimmy Fallon Booed For Dissing Hillary Clinton’s Pantsuits

Late night TV’s new kid on the block, Jimmy Fallon, is used to hearing applause on The Tonight Show. This past Monday night, however, he was met with something very different: boos from the crowd.

During his monologue, the funnyman brought up Chelsea Clinton’s pregnancy, and then cracked a joke that went like this: “If it’s a girl, it’ll get some of Chelsea’s old hand-me-downs, and if it’s a boy, it’ll get some of Hillary’s.” The audience seemed, well, unimpressed.

Now, Jimmy. A bit of advice: pick up a copy of Vogue. (Or, even better, become a Rue Member. Hint, hint.)  Not only is menswear on-trend this season, but Hillary’s been nailing the whole power-dressing thing since the 80s.

Don’t get me wrong. Everyone (including me) loves you, Jimmy. Even more so when you’re rapping alongside JT. But when it comes to a woman’s closet, I think it’s best you leave it to the experts.

Charitable Fashion: Jimmy Choo Designs Shoes to Benefit Fukushima

Thousands of people still remain displaced after the 2011 nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan. So, following his recent visit to the country, Jimmy Choo decided to take action.

The shoe designer announced last Friday that he has created six pairs of shoes made from local Fukushima materials, like Aizu cotton and Kawamata silk, and by using artisanal techniques native to the region. Each one-of-a-kind design is meant to shine a spotlight on the stunning craftsmanship of the area, and the proceeds will be donated to local organizations that help those affected by the tragedy.

Jay Z & Beyoncé: Coming to a City Near You

Yes, the undisputed King and Queen of the Music World – or just the world in general – are rumored to be going on tour together this summer. While the duo hasn’t confirmed anything just yet, sources tell Page Six that Bey and Jay will perform at 20 stadiums beginning in late June. There have even been whispers about a July 4 concert in NYC. (Fireworks and this “Crazy in Love” couple? Count me in.)

If their latest Grammy Awards performance was any indication, this show is sure to be one for the books. Clear your summer schedules accordingly.

First Track from Lana Del Rey’s Much-Anticipated Album Drops

The first official track off Lana Del Rey’s anxiously awaited album, Ultraviolence, has been released. “West Coast” has that velvety, brooding sound the crooner is known for, and it seems to be the perfect tune to heighten any and all anticipation of her forthcoming record. But there’s more: The new single surfaced along with a looped, black-and-white video of Del Rey spinning around on a beach with the same actor from her ”Born to Die” and “Blue Jeans” videos (a taste of what’s to come, perhaps?).

To say I’m counting the days until the full album drops, well – that would be an understatement. Just watch and listen to the video here to see what the hype is all about.

Yahoo Steps Up Its Beauty Game with Bobbi Brown

In recent months, Yahoo! has been making headlines with its heavy-hitting hires (in November, the company announced Katie Couric as its global anchor). And now, it’s at it again with its newest all-star addition of Bobbi Brown as beauty editor in chief.

Brown announced the news on her blog Wednesday, saying, “As EIC, I’ll work to curate smart, strong content that will teach women how to be their best selves.” With eight beauty books, an obsession-worthy product line, and years of experience, I personally can’t think of a better fit for the job. Now, here’s hoping she can show us how to tackle that whole blue-lipstick trend.

JLaw Lands the Cover of Martha Stewart Weddings

Could it be? Did Jennifer Lawrence and boyfriend Nicholas Hoult secretly elope and not tell anyone besides Martha Stewart? Sadly, no. But the Hunger Games star is featured on the latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings.

JLaw’s brother, Blaine, got married this past October, and Martha Stewart Weddings caught the nuptials on camera. Dressed in flowing ivory J.Crew gowns, the actress and ten other bridesmaids surround her new sister-in-law on the magazine’s cover.  Just don’t scan the page too fast, or you might miss her looking – dare I say it – normal.

Grumpy Cat Visits Vogue (and We’re Jealous)

The Internet’s sulkiest sensation went high-fashion yesterday with a trip to the New York Vogue offices. According to Fashionista, the well-traveled cat first met the magazine’s team in Austin at SXSW, where they really hit it off. So much so, in fact, that Vogue invited her to visit as a birthday treat (who needs Friskies?). After the tour, a yet-to-be-revealed birthday surprise, and a quick cuddle with Grace Coddington, Grumpy Cat headed home. Best birthday ever? I’d say so – even if she doesn’t.

All in the Family: Brooklyn Beckham Lands Modeling Gig

As the offspring of an international pop star–turned–designer and soccer legend–slash–underwear god, the Beckham children come from one seriously amazing gene pool. So the fact that they’re taking over the fashion world one by one shouldn’t really come as a surprise.

First there was Romeo, who starred alongside Cara Delevingne in a 2013 Burberry campaign. And now Brooklyn, his brother and the eldest child of the superstar couple, is jumping on the modeling bandwagon – he landed the cover of this year’s spring/summer issue of Man About Town.

Honestly, it’s probably just a matter of time before Cruz, Harper, and the family’s pet all ink their own modeling deals.

Bag Snob Bloggers Set to Launch Their Own Handbag Line

Tina Craig and Kelly Cook of the popular blog Bag Snob are set to launch their own line of handbags this spring, which will (appropriately) be called “Snob Essentials.” WWD reports that the line will feature crossbodies, totes, and backpacks complete with vegan leather and custom hardware. The best part? Unlike the bags the bloggers write about, their own label will be set at a completely attainable price point – as in $60 to $128. “We chose to launch at this price point because we firmly believe that money is not indicative of good taste and want to offer well-designed bags at attainable prices,” Tina told Fashionista in an interview.

And This Year’s CFDA Fashion Icon Award Goes To…

Rihanna. The Council of Fashion Designers of America has just revealed that the songstress/sartorial risk taker will be honored with the 2014 Fashion Icon Award at this year’s ceremony, which takes place on June 2 in New York City. From her ever-changing hairstyles and envelope-pushing outfit choices to her philanthropic work with MAC Cosmetics’ Viva Glam campaign, the Barbadian singer’s award is, in my opinion, well-deserved.

How does CFDA CEO Steven Kolb feel about the announcement? “We are proud to present Rihanna with the CFDA Fashion Icon Award for her impact on the industry as fashion’s most exciting ambassador in recent memory,” he said.

Clearly, he and I are on the same RiRi-loving page. The only question remaining: What will she wear to the ceremony?
