The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Tyra Banks’s $10 Million Wig Lawsuit, Rihanna’s Video for ‘Pour it Up,’ is Predictably Racy, and Get A Load of Beyoncé’s Prom Photo


• We all know Tyra Banks loves a good lacefront, but don’t you dare try to slap her name on some Virgin Remy or Yaki without her approval! The model mogul just filed a series of lawsuits amounting in $10 million dollars against 10 wig companies who have all used her name and likeness to sell “Tyra Banks-style” hairpieces. The suit claims that the companies peddling these wigs are misusing her “name, photograph, image, and identity,” and they should be brought to justice. Included in this suit is an 11-page printout of IMDB profile to prove that she is indeed a star and has a valuable trademark, provided as exhibit A. Can’t blame her for wanting to protect her brand, but did she really need IMDB references to verify her stardom? I’m just gonna leave this one alone… (TMZ)

• Booty clapping, water splashing, dollar bill flurries… what else would you expect from Rihanna‘s music video for ‘Pour it Up?’ Watch Monica Braithwaite‘s pride & joy in the video Miley Cyrus wishes she made her latest co-directing effort above. But beware! The vid is pretty NSFW. (TheYBF)



• If you had any questions as to whether or not Beyoncé is a fashion-forward quehn, please refer to the above photo, taken back in the ’90s at the singer’s prom. Get into it: cutouts, a white pump and flash of thigh? Clearly evidence of the illest fashion foresight! The swirl print… well, I’ll give her a pass on that one. Werque miss Bey! (Styleite)


• Attention stoners/ Marijuana license card holders: If you haven’t already blown all your extra spending money on herb and bodega snacks, you, too can toke like a baller thanks to Shine 24K Gold rolling papers. They’re exactly what they sound like: rolling papers covered in edible gold leaf, which, according to the Shine company, are made for “legal smoking herbs.” A pack containing 12 sheets will set you back between $55 and $60 bucks, but according to a fan who’s used them,  it was “the best and easiest roll and smoke I’ve had.” The papers have already gained popularity amongst rappers (who is surprised), and I imagine we might see a certain Ms. Fenty flexing on Instagram with one of these babies rolled up. Whether or not you agree with marijuana smoking, you’ve got to admit: these are pretty freakin’ cool. (NYDN)
