Iconic French Fashion Designer Sonia Rykiel Passes Away At 86

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionR.I.P.Sad Sad

Sonia Rykiel passes away at 86.

This is a huge loss for the fashion world.

Sonia Rykiel, iconic French designer and a pioneer in the industry, has passed away at the age of 86 from complications of Parkinson's disease.

During her lifetime, the designer was lauded for her groundbreaking contributions, such as being the first to make maternity clothes that actually flattered and revealed a woman's pregnant shape instead of hiding it.

Similar to how Coco Chanel liberated women from corsets, Rykiel focused on making clothes for the average woman who valued functionality over fussiness.

In the 1980s, her empire expanded to include fragrances, menswear, and accessories, but she retired in 2009, handing over the reins of her business to daughter Nathalie.

Rykiel was twice given the Legion of Honor, the highest award in France, by French Presidents Francois Mitterrand and Nicolas Sarkozy.

May she rest in peace!

White House Correspondents Dinner 2016: Helen Mirren walks the red carpet.

Gone but never forgotten.

On Saturday, Dame Helen Mirren decided to honor Prince at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner by rocking the icon's signature color.

The English actress, who walked the red carpet alongside husband Taylor Hackford, donned a beautiful, purple, floor-length dress in the musician's memory.

But the lovely lady's dedication knows no bounds.

The 70-year-old also showed off a tattoo of the late legend's Love Symbol on her collarbone. Now, it's probable that the ink is just temporary, but either way it sure makes a sentimental statement.

The Everybody Loves New York alum took to Twitter to express her sadness over the unexpected loss, posting:

Earlier this year, the 34-year-old made headlines while in the CBB house for the way she reacted after learning David Bowie had passed away.

Instead, the VH1 star mistakenly thought the 62-year-old had died suddenly while they were in the UK house together.

The clip ended up going viral and, at the time, the TV personality even added a "David Is Dead" T-shirt to her collection of graphic tees that feature some of her more well-known quotes.

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionKendra WilkinsonSad SadRed CarpetSkinBoobs

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Say it ain't so!

On Friday, Kendra Wilkinson dropped a HUGE bombshell on us all! Only, the day after she showed off her busty bosom at the premiere of Kendra On Top, the gorgeous gal revealed she will no longer be donning boobie-baring ensembles on the red carpet!

Video: Kendra HAS To Room With Holly Madison's Friend! Awkward!

The blonde beauty took to Twitter to make the devastating announcement, saying:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Now, Perezcious readers, at first we figured this was just the reality star's take on an April Fools' Day prank, but her followup post seemed to debunk that theory, because she added:

Does this mean we'll never see Kendra's impressive cleavage on the carpet EVER AGAIN?!

We tend to live by the motto "If you got it, flaunt it," so we're practically emotional wrecks right now. But what do U think about her decision?! SOUND OFF in the comments!

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionModelsSad SadBodySports IllustratedControversyAshley Graham

Cheryl has some harsh words for Ashley Graham!

Well this is disappointing.

Legendary model Cheryl Tiegs had some pretty controversial things to say about the newest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit covers.

Sadly, the former SI model didn't agree with the magazine's decision to feature Ashley Graham.

In case you didn't know, Graham is the first "curvasexalicious" model to ever cover the special issue!

But in an interview with E! News, Cheryl dissed the 28-year-old, saying:

"I don't like that we're talking about full-figured women because it's glamorizing them because your waist should be smaller than 35 [inches]. That's what Dr. Oz said, and I'm sticking to it. No, I don't think it's healthy. Her face is beautiful. Beautiful. But I don't think it's healthy in the long run."

Sigh. The 68-year-old is entitled to her own opinion, but wow.

Lilly Pulitzer Fans Are Extremely Upset At Fat-Shaming Illustrations Discovered At The Company's Headquarters!

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionSad Sad

Lilly Pulitzer called out for fat-shaming.

This is rather sad.

A recent article on the corporate headquarters of Lilly Pulitzer inadvertently shed light on an employee's fat-shaming illustrations (above) hanging inside her cubicle.

When the photos were first published, fans of the brand wrongfully believed the illustrations were pinned in a communal space (like the refrigerator) at the company's offices, and that the company was promoting fat-shaming.

It was later revealed that the drawings — one of which reads "another day of fat, white, and hideous, you should probably just kill yourself" while another states "put it down carb face" — were
