100 Ways Fashion Changed The World

There are few things that I love more than history and fashion, but I don’t have the vintage shopping budget of Rachel Zoe or the means to visit every fashion history exhibit worldwide. Fortunately, the London Design Museum is bringing the fashion history to me and everyone else. Fifty Dresses that Changed The World and Fifty Shoes that Changed The World, due out Nov. 1, present a guided tour of how iconic shoes and dresses have impacted our society and fashion design. The little black dress didn’t become a must-have garment for just any reason. And cork platform shoes might not have been invented if it weren’t for Mussolini’s invasion of Ethiopia in 1935. Don’t think of these two books as simple encyclopedias because they’re much more sacred than that. With all the fashion history they explore, these books deserve their own spot on your fashion altar right next to the fashion bible — Vogue magazine. [Pipeline] Keep reading »

Superior Court. Wright is reportedly in her late 30s and is six months pregnant.

Although Knowles has been married to wife Tina since 1980, this isn’t the first child he’s been rumored to have fathered out of wedlock. Back in April, the rumor mill was churning with the “news” that Kelly Rowland was actually the daughter of Knowles from an extra-marital affair. Keep reading »
