Defined as a ‘horror’ and worse Rihanna’s fashion debut at London Fashion week is a terrible fail.

‘The Daily Beast’ described her line as a ‘horror show’, and they were right!

According to the Huffpost, Rihanna was over an hour late starting. Making a crowd wait isn’t unheard of, but an hour?! Everything was badly simplistic. TV-esque, 90’s style, with one piece Baywatch Swimsuit & SJP LA Story, off-shoulder outfit with mini skirt. No flourish or trim and 97%  see-through, gauzy material fit for a romance novel cover. She was off-season, presenting in London late and not scheduled as part of ‘Official Fashion Week’.

If I were Rihanna right now, I would be hiding somewhere in a bottle of rum.

There are too many reasons Rihanna’s line was a failure but let’s highlight a few.

Involvement; Rihanna’s direct involvement with River Island creating her line, was small at best. She sent texts and emails, choosing the material samples and giving the OK on design via phone. Nothing more. Despite her sad choices in design and material, the real credit to the line goes elsewhere.

Her line created, sewn and draped by designer Philip Green. Green created the Kate Moss line ($$$$) and brought TopShop from a zero to multi-million dollar hero of retail. Philip Green’s collaboration with rock stars and models have ALWAYS created money. However Rihanna is a a fail and a flake. Why?

Professionalism: River Island directly works with ASOS, Primark, Zara and of course Topshop, all of which Rihanna could have had a stake in with a £800,000 contract. Then she jeopardized that.

Two days before her London debut Rihanna was stupidly bold enough to post pictures of a marijuana bud putting her line and professionalism at question with River Island and the fashion community. Mostly, River Island, who very much said that her tweet of green could kill her contract and to keep things under wraps about her love affair with weed. In the fashion community we don’t care what you do, but don’t let everyone know about it.

Over all the line was simple, sad and see through, I can’t even wear it to bed. The blatant 90’s rip off wear is too much for any serious designer to stomach. Rihanna gets a D- for effort, and if possible an F- for the line.

Back to the drawing board RiRi.

Facebook Plans to turn into Myspace. Adding Video Adverts to YOUR Timeline in 2013#hellno #FAIL

Ah Facebook. It’s the worlds worst catch 22.

Your effed if you don’t have it; People now use it for celebs, deals, contests, promotion and establishing social existence. Meeting others in an overpopulated world. Keeping tabs on your SO (significant other). Staying in touch long distance. Meeting new business contacts.

Your are effed if you do have it; Unmanageable, trite, childish, your mom’s on it, time waster. Relationship killer and an easy way to get fired. Fake accounts, spam bots and now, video ads in your timeline in 2013.

What the hell Zuckerberg? Yes it’s true. According to our lovely geeks at Wired.com;

Facebook plans to unveil 15-second video ads by April within both mobile and desktop news feeds, several advertising executives tell Ad Age. The ads will start playing automatically, according to two of the executives, and Facebook has reportedly not decided whether to mute audio from the ads.

Ad Age reports that the commercials will even expand beyond the middle web page section that normally contains the news feed, taking over the left and right rails of the page as well.

Facebook declined to comment.

Thank you Mark Zuckerberg for continually turning this into Friendster/Myspace. Soon everyone will be canceling accounts and officially ‘quitting this shit’. Including me. Facebook’s site is starting to look like AOL in the 90s. Oh the emoticons, nice touch. That killed it.

In the meantime we suffer well. What do you think of recent Facebook changes?

Apologetic Lucky Magazine on Britney Spears Botched Cover

Britney Spears has had her ups and downs. She has been a Disney kid, a teen pop star. She was a 20 something mess complete with wigs and English accent. Thankfully she beat the odds and became a mom and took back her reigns as a pop starlet. How can you not be proud of her complete comeback? She even looks fierce.

Unfortunately Lucky Magazine didn’t think so and gave her a little too much help in the Photoshop department turning her into…this;

What in the holy name of Taylor Swift gone soccer mom is this hot mess?

Hairline, WTF? That wig is heading towards her nose. Nose elongated, cheeks misplaced and face, definitely not hers. Britney HAS used Photoshop many times before but this time the fault was all Lucky Magazine. Bad form Lucky, Bad Form.

Of course it was NOT well received by her fans and Lucky did issue and apology for this face that is 20x super imposed and a terrible wig.

I think they should give her another damn cover. Thoughts? Weigh in below.
