• Solange Knowles: she’s just like us! Fashion’s favorite DJ told Fashionista, “I probably should not have eaten two bags of barbecue chips before I got in” the paillette-covered Marni dress she wore to Monday’s CFDA awards. “…Nothing I can do about that now. We actually got here a little early and I was in the car and I so hungry! So we stopped.” Can Solange please not make us love her more than we already do? It’s getting ridiculous now! (Fashionista)

•The now former Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin took to Facebook yesterday to announce she would be leaving the Miss Universe Organization because the Miss USA Pageant was rigged. Today the folks at Miss Universe are refuting her claims, saying Monnin sent an e-mail citing the inclusion of transgendered contestant Jenna Talackova in the Miss Universe competition as her reason for leaving. Said the Miss Universe Organization: “In an email to state pageant organizers, she cited the Miss Universe Organization’s policy regarding transgendered contestants, implemented two months ago, as the reason for her resignation. Today she has changed her story by publicly making false accusations claiming that the pageant was fixed, however the contestant she privately sourced as her reference has vehemently refuted her most recent claim. We are disappointed that she would attempt to steal the spotlight from Olivia Culpo of Rhode Island on her well-deserved Miss USA win.” Donald Trump, who owns the Miss USA franchise, said today that he will take legal action agianst Ms. Monnin for her lies. “Yeah, we’re gonna sue her,” he told Good Morning America.
