Rihanna Brings Some Serious Style To The Johannesburg Zoo

Rihanna gets a lot done in a day, regardless of whether or not a proper pair of pants is involved. Her trip to South Africa this week yielded not only a history-making performance as the youngest ever female artist to sell out the Johannesburg stadium, but also — more importantly — plenty of opportunities to pose awesomely alongside animals while hitting the local zoo with her fam. Without further ado, check out Rihanna, dressed to kill, hangin’ out with baby tigers, giraffes, giant crabs, and more … [Instagram]

It’s Tuesday, So Watch This Baby White Lion Cub Try To Roar

Baby white lion cub tries to roar
Rrrrrow!

Who needs breaking news and celebrity coverage when there’s a baby white lion cub to be watched? Especially one that’s trying to roar for the very first time? The cub, who has yet to be named, was just born last Thursday at Belgrade Zoo in Serbia. That is one fresh cub! White lions, by the way, are traditionally believed to be messengers of the divine. I wonder what message this new baby has for us? An open letter to Miley, perhaps? [Gawker]

Animal-Control Officer Hid 850 Snakes Worth $500,000 In His Home

An animal-control officer had hundreds of snakes, including two 6-foot Burmese pythons, at his home, where he ran an illegal side business selling them, authorities said Thursday.

There were 850 snakes worth half a million dollars in a detached garage at the Shirley home of Richard Parrinello, including the Burmese pythons, which are illegal in New York state, officials said. Read more at Huffington Post…

Nothing To See Here, Just Your Standard Horse On A Roof

Horse on a roof

It’s a rare, impressive instance in which a legitimate photograph outdoes a Photoshopped piece in all-around inconceivability, but I daresay this real-life horse on a roof does just that. Pat Downey’s brother-in-law Archie snapped this bizarre photo of one of Pat’s racing horses just hangin’ out on the roof of her New Brunswick farmhouse. Don’t worry, Must Win was safely removed (airlifted, perhaps?) from said roof shortly after said photograph was taken — but how in the world did he get there in the first place? Pat’s husband Stephen is convinced the colt, bored and lonely with the rest of his horse friends away for training, must have gotten on the roof by climbing a “small knoll” behind the home’s garage. “He’s like a two or three-year-old kid and he was just looking for some excitement and he got into trouble like a regular kid would do,” said Stephen. Just like a regular kid, but a horse kid. [Gawker]

As far as designers go, Karl Lagerfeld is notoriously loyal to his muses — for instance, while most brands will hold on to a spokesmodel for only a few years before ushering in the new guard, Karl has retained Keira Knightley as the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle fragrance since 2006. Model monogamy is kind of his thing … so, with that in mind, expect to see Lagerfeld’s feline daughter/wife Choupette landing more magazine editorials than Kate Moss for the foreseeable future. (Okay, maybe not Moss, but you catch my drift.) She made her glossy debut last year in Harper’s Bazaar, followed shortly thereafter by a spread in V alongside Laetitia Casta. The stunning Siamese (we think) even landed the cover of Grazia Daily‘s September fashion issue. Now, the next installment in Choupette’s growing oeuvre is a starring role on the July 2013 cover of Vogue Germany, photographed by Karl himself. She and Linda Evangelista are looking preeeetty cozy — we wonder if there might be some surrogate cat-mom arrangements to be made? If only Linda were so lucky! [Huffington Post]
