The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Solange Knowles, Beyoncé and Jay Z Make A Statement About The Elevator Incident, Rihanna Cyberbullies A Fan, and Jeremy Scott to Show Menswear in London
By The Fashion Bomb Staff


• What happened between Solange Knowles and Jay Z in the elevator of The Standard Hotel still remains a mystery, even though the Knowles-Carter family has come forward today to make a statement about the incident, released to the APAs a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it,” the statement says. “Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.” The family firmly denies that Solange was under the influence during the melee: “The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.” (AP)



• Why did New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson get sacked yesterday? Her staff sure as heck doesn’t know. A Times employee commented on the matter, saying “The unbelievable thing is that there actually is no ‘cause’ for this — no single thing, nothing.”  Is sexism to blame?, The Cut’s Ann Friedman asks.

• The legendary Lauren Hutton sat down with Fern Mallis at the 92nd Street Y last night to chat about her storied career. The 26-time Vogue cover girl dished on how she landed her first job posing for Christian Dior–a gig that paid her $50 a week: I was looking through “wanted” ads, and then [my friend] Arnie said, “Look at this. It says ‘Model wanted. Christian Dior. New York. Must have experience.’” I said, “I don’t have experience.” He said, “Of course you do.” I learned my first great New York lesson: lie. Tell them what they need to hear. Figure out what they need to hear, and lead from there.” (WWD)



Rihanna‘s come under fire today for making fun of a teenaged fan on Twitter. The young lady, 16-year-old Alexis Carter, paid homage to an Alexandre Vauthier look Riri rocked back in 2010. She recreated the hunter green batwing jumpsuit to wear to prom, which was apparently hilarious to her classmates, who circulated internet memes of Carter, with the hashtag #PromBat. Rihanna caught wind of the hashtag, and joined in on the ridicule, posting a side-by-side shot of herself and Carter, captioning it with a sad face. She then posted a second photo of the girl next to the Wu-Tang ‘W.’ People are calling Rih’s tweets cyberbullying, and Carter agrees. “She don’t love her fan like she says she does,” the teen told Fox News in Baltimore. “I was very offended. Why throw shade on it when you had on the exact same thing? The poses was different, but the outfit wasn’t.” Rihanna’s clapped back at fans before, but it seems pretty cruel to make fun of someone on their prom night–especially when you wore the same outfit. Perhaps her teasing was meant all in good fun, but as I’ve learned, a lighthearted joke might not seem so funny when you’re on the other end. (Fox Baltimore)



Jeremy Scott will show a menswear offering in London on June 16th during men’s fashion week. It’s shaping up to be quite a hot ticket–Scott specifically chose to show in the UK over Milan. Plus, we’ll get to see the women’s resort looks on the catwalk as well. (WWD)

    In regards to the Rihanna/teen incident…..
    I saw the picture of the suit and it tickled me to my core…please forgive me but please know that if and when you put yourself out there on social media you can be subject to ridicule. Should Ri have done so so openly?….absolutely not. Celebrities may love that we support them but they are NOT our friends.

    “…they are not our friends” ^^^^ thank you!

    I was more shocked that parents would co-sign on such a body conscious, sexy outfit for a 16-year old. Times have truly changed. Also, I think people need to realize that not everything a celebrity does or wears is intended to be duplicated in real life.

    They are entertainers who jockey for attention in the media all the time, so most things (not all) that they do is meant to get them attention. Like Rihanna during her “fire engine red” hair days. So many “regular” peeps were walking around with that hair color that SO shouldn’t have been….truly. LOL.

    Rihanna was wrong for joining in the ridicule. She is not the most mature person, but she should have known better. As for the young lady, before you post ANYTHING online you must weigh the consequences/reactions from all angles. Think and then think again.

  4. S says:

    I’m glad the Knowles-Carter family has seemingly worked through the “situation.” Going forward I hope they all realize that if you can just contain yourselves until you get to the house, then you won’t put your family in a position of having to make a public statement for what amounts to private family drama.

  5. Jenna says:

    Celebrities aren’t our friends but they are adults and should act as such. Rihanna is well known for cyberbullying other artists and her FANS. Hurt people hurt people.

  6. Titi says:

    Listen, that bat prom girl has no friends in her life. Once she put up her pics on social media everyone ridiculed her… Why should Rihanna be any different? She’s human after all right. She’s not a politician and the outfit was a mess!

    I’m glad the carter clan addressed the situation. Everyone has family drama and it sucks theirs gets played on the ten o’clock news. I actually wouldn’t have minded if they didn’t say anything. It’s not your business

  7. Jen says:

    I don’t think Rihanna was making fun of the girl. She said in the Wu-Tang one that her fan “gets it” and went on to post a pic of Diddy saying he “gets it” as well. I remember it vividly, because I thought Rihanna was actually trying to help.

  8. Jacquelyn says:

    I remember the night this was posted and all of Twitter went in on her for the outfit. There were countless meme’s and mocking of the outfit. It WAS NOT just Rhianna.It’s the internet and anything you put out there is subject to ridicule. I see comments on the Fashion Bomb of the Day way more harsh than what Rhianna tweeted…..girl bye! Turn this into a positive, get you some business cards, and a big cartel website of clothes you have made and get famous on IG. Next…..

  9. Xi Xi Topp says:

    Rihanna doesn’t look good in that jumpsuit either tho, so I don’t know why she took offense. If the girl in question looked a mess in her recreated look, twas a proper homage imo lol.

  10. Kai says:

    Jenna you seem to be the only person with sense. Everyone else seems to be normalizing cyber bullying and bullying period.

  11. Lola Reggy says:

    @S i agree with you, that is a very sexy outfit for a 16 year old!!! The cleavage and how tight it all is… Wow, parents what were you thinking, really….

  12. lexi says:

    Rianna wasn’t bullying that girl, all she did was post the side by side and a meme that someone else did. If reposting is bullying than everyone is gulity. she is just looking for shine. Also she is 16 and should not be wearing a damn bodysuit anyway.

  13. chula says:

    Wow…that was not right for Rihanna to do that. .that’s one of your fans..they help you to get paid…..It wasn’t like this fan was doing something negative, but positive….also something doesn’t seem right w/ Jay-Z and Beyonce’s relationship. ..somethin is off…..

    I don’t think Rihanna really cares, she’s said it a million times, she does not see herself, nor does she want to be a “role model” for these girls. All Rihanna did was post one picture of the outfit, which she got from someone ELSE’s profile, who was also “roasting” the ‘prom’ dress, not from the girls Twitter herself.
