Icelandic Fashion Brand Accuses Beyonce Of Stealing Studded Leggings

Did Beyonce Knowles‘ House of Dereon fashion line steal the idea of these studded leggings from Icelandic fashion brand E-label? That’s what Helba Hallgrimsdottir, who co-owns E-limited, claims. At left, E-label’s Heavy Metal Leggings designed by Asgrimur Mar Fridriksson. At right, Beyonce in House of Dereon’s version from the fall 2010 lookbook. Supposedly, Beyonce bought the E-label’s leggings last year at a London Top Shop. “I didn’t twig straight away that this was her own label: I just thought she was wearing our leggings,” says Hallgrimsdottir upon seeing the disputed pair. “It is practically just copy/paste.” There’s so much studding going around we’re more prone to thinking it was a coincidence or inspiration. What do you think? [ONTD] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: When On Vacation … Just Say Yes

I entered the hostel common room and plunked down on the couch next to a sunburned Norwegian in flip-flops. The plasma television was tuned to European MTV, which in the Balkans apparently still broadcasts music videos. A gaggle of Irish girls, likely still part of the channel’s demographic, drank cocktails from coffee mugs. They had just returned from an alcohol run steps outside of the Old Town in Split, Croatia, which had been built by the Roman emperor Diocletian as a retirement home in the year 305 C.E.

Dear Wendy: “Is It A Bad Idea To Move In With My Ex And Her Boyfriend?”

I’m planning on moving in to a new apartment with two close friends in a few months. We’re all in our mid-20s now and hang out on a weekly basis. The two of them have been dating for a little over two years now, and like the idea of sharing an apartment with a close friend before moving out completely on their own together. I’ve been friends with the girl for about nine years, and the guy for about six, and was actually the one who introduced them. The girl and I also dated for about two and a half years, but broke it off over three years ago, while still in college. After a cool-off period, we slipped back into our previous friendship far better than either of us expected, and have been extremely close since. While I’m not worried about living with the two of them, some of my family and friends think it’s a bad idea. I have no desire to get back with her, or really to change the relationship we currently have in any way. We actually lived together our senior year of college (after the breakup) with another mutual friend. That all worked out rather well, despite the obvious concerns to the contrary, so I feel we definitely have some past experience to believe there shouldn’t be any significant problems living together. Do you think having an intertwined past could prove problematic when living together? — Cautiously Optimistic
