The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Rihanna’s New Fragrance, Guess Who Designed Beyonce’s Wedding Dress, and Jennifer Hudson for Ebony Magazine


Rihanna is releasing a second fragrance, Rebelle, this December.

The pop star hopes this probably only slightly different-smelling scent will do as well as her first offering, Reb’l Fleur, which made her $80 million since its debut in January. Do you think you’ll buy it, or are you over celebrity fragrances? (WWD)

• The Versace for H&M collection has already released in Europe and Asia, and it has caused all the madness one could imagine. A fight broke out at an H&M store in Shanghai minutes before opening when a shopper thought someone was trying to cut in front of him. (The Cut)

• In what is truly the shock of the century, it turns out Beyoncé‘s wedding dress, which she recently revealed to the masses in her new video for “I was Here,” was designed by none other than Miss Tina Knowles. If only Ms. Tina could bring that sort of elegance and class to a certain clothing line that shall not be named. (The Cut)

• Australian model Shanina Shaik walked in the Victoria’s Secret fashion show for the first time this year. She recently sat down with The Cut, discussing her journey from reality TV star (she was featured on Make Me A Supermodel, where she met her current boyfriend, Tyson Beckford,) to VS model. “It doesn’t do well for models to be attached to a reality show. Being on the show, it came to a point where it wasn’t about modeling anymore; it was about the drama. I wouldn’t say I regret it because it did start something for me. Also, I met Tyson because of the show. Let me just tell you, reality TV is not real.” Wha– what? You mean all those situations on Real Housewives of Atlanta are set up? They seemed so real!

• Vogue takes a look back at their favorite covers, from as early as 1902 to as recent as this year. The cover with First Lady Michelle Obama is among the 25 that made the cut. It’s one of our favorites, too! (Vogue)

• Jennifer Hudson and her scrumptious curves cover this month’s Ebony magazine. In this issue, she talks about the size 0 debacle: “I am going to finally address that size-zero thing that Joy [Behar] said on The View. Hell I wasn’t even on the show. I never said I was a size zero. I got crucified by I don’t know how many people who cussed me out because they said I’m putting out the wrong message and telling people to be a size zero. I got called every name under the sun and was told, ‘You should be ashamed of yourself for talking about being that size.’ Well, honey, when I do say I’m that size, then give me that speech. I never said that.” (Beauty is Diverse)
