• In Yaki news, Beyoncé was recently photographed with Kelly Rowland filming her video for “Party.” *Squeel!* one of my favorite songs off 4!
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK, The King discusses her feminist attitude present in many of her songs: “I don’t really feel that it’s necessary to define it. It’s just something that’s kind of natural for me, and I feel like…you know…it’s, like, what I live for. I need to find a catchy new word for feminism, right? Like Bootylicious.” (The YBF)

• Louboutin v. YSL continues to rage in court, but a new development seems to suggest Louboutin might have a leg up. YSL submitted a chart of red soled shoes they’d manufactured since 2004, which turned out to cause quite the controversy. WWD says; “It had been a contentious document during the hearing because the plaintiff told the court it was unable to verify its accuracy.” of the document, Louboutin’s lawyer said: “This exhibit is a bald attempt of YSL and counsel to circumvent the law and sneak into evidence the chart they acknowledged was a ‘demonstrative’ at the July 22 hearing.” The exhibit was subsequently thrown out. Ooh wee! With all that’s been unfolding in this case, it’s a wonder it isn’t televised. There’s something I’d like to watch! (WWD)
• It seems everyone’s doing all-star seasons! Rumor has it Project Runway is currently filming its first all-star season in NYC right now. And that’s not even the juicy part: word on the street is they’ve decided to replace Heidi Klum with a different supermodel host (please let it be Iman,) along with the judges just for this season. Dream judge? Betsey Johnson, mainly because she doesn’t know how to use a cell phone or computer. (Racked)
