I’m sorry it couldn’t be anyone else. It was SJP in 2015 with the headpiece – click here for a refresher. But this year she doesn’t have to share. I go back to what I wrote in today’s blog intro, because obviously I love quoting myself: What do you do when you know that everyone will be dressing up like robot mannequins? Do you, too, dress up like a robot mannequin, or do you apply a different interpretation to the theme? F-ck no. Full Story

Those are Solange’s words, on Twitter, after the release of Formation in February. Gossip first or fashion? Let’s go gossip. Beyoncé and Solange were without Jay Z at the MET Gala. You’ll note, all three of them attended last year, which was a year after the elevator incident. Full Story
