Getty Images My least favorite fashion phrase of all time is "wardrobe malfunction," and there are a few reasons for this. First of all, I think it's terribly overused (can't we think of something more creative?). Also, as someone who's never suffered one, I simply don't understand how celebrities continue to fall prey to these sartorial mishaps on the red carpet. Are they getting ready in the dark? Is there an underwear shortage I'm not aware of?

This is on my mind, since Eva Longoria suffered a fashion faux pas on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday. She was holding the bottom of her long, pale green dress to save it from rain puddles, but then she raised the dress too high and photographers caught her without underwear.
The next night, Eva tweeted: "Here's my dress for tonight! No wardrobe malfunctions tonight!!!" She is obviously a great sport about the whole thing, but couldn't this have just been avoided

Another day, another racy Instagram from Rihanna. This morning, the 25-year-old singer and self proclaimed "bad gal" took to social media to show her millions of fans some behind-the-scenes shots from the set of the music video for "Pour It Up," her strip club anthem. In addition to piles of cash on the floor, RiRi also showed off her backside in what appears to be a denim thong. Hours after the photo was posted, though, it was deleted.

Obviously, Rihanna isn't afraid of making provocative fashion statements-in fact, she thanked Prada back in March for sending her custom boots with another thong-baring photograph. She pushes the envelope in her everyday fashion sense as well, often wearing avant garde designers like Mary Katrantzou as well as insane accessories like thigh-high Tom Ford boots with little else for a casual dinner out, so we're surprised she reneged on keeping the
A few weeks ago one of the most popular mass market clothing retailers became one of the most hated.
First there was the scathing report on Abercrombie and Fitch's decision not to make their all-American clothing in larger sizes. Then there was the astonishing excerpt from a 2006 interview with CEO Mike Jeffries which resurfaced, sparking renewed outrage. "We want to market to cool, good-looking people," Jeffries told Salon. “In every school there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the not-so-cool kids. Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely."
Cue backlash, led by 18-year-old powerhouse Benjamin O’Keefe. "Stop telling teens they aren’t beautiful and start making clothes for people of all shapes and sizes," wrote the teenager in a petition posted to Change.org. His message was supportedRead More »from Here's that Abercrombie and Fitch Apology You've Been Waiting For

Beyoncé It's truly hard to ignore Beyoncé's name in the press these days. The 31-year-old singer has been making headlines for her potential pregnancy (her hubby Jay-Z denies it, but many media outlets are still claiming it's true), her Mrs. Carter Show world tour, and of course her lavish vacations. As a known lover of yachts, it's no surprise that the second she had some downtime on her tour, Beyoncé flitted off to the South of France for some fun in the sun onboard a massive yacht with her husband Jay-Z in tow.

Just last week, she cancelled a show in Belgium citing dehydration and exhaustion, but our guess is now that she's living the high life again she's probably feeling a lot better. The power couple were joined by Beyoncé's younger sister Solange and her boyfriend, music video director Alan Ferguson.

While some trends have (thankfully) failed to move forward (we're looking at you, bell bottoms), others have been reimagined to remind us of a decade full of flowers, music, love and beauty.

This American-made hat earns a very high rating on Amazon, where buyers say they often get compliments on the style. They credit the so-called CoolMax band with keeping moisture at bay and the mesh crown with keeping their heads cool. While this particular Breezer hat is made with cotton twill, you can find one with UPF 50+ fabric for greater protection from ultraviolet rays and slightly more money.

After taking a super-giant leap and investing in a pair of leather pants this past winter, the absolute last thing I want to do is stash them away this season. It just makes me too sad to think of them stuffed into the back of my closet, nestled for months between my cumbersome coats and fuzzy sweaters.
