Rebecca Black’s unexpected career arc is a thing of beauty

In June of last year, Twitter user @s_jobs6 mused, “There are few things to celebrate in this world but the fact that Rebecca Black is now a gay icon is definitely one of them.” And they weren’t wrong. Black’s unusual career arc — from viral punchline to genuine artist — is absolutely something worth celebrating.

In 2011, Black was a middle schooler in suburban Los Angeles when she released a song called “Friday” via an outfit called Ark Music Factory. Ark was sort of a pay-to-play record label, where producer and rapper Patrice Wilson would help aspiring young musicians write a pop song and make a (low-budget) video in exchange for money.

“I found it through a friend of mine at school and I was like, ‘Oh, this looks interesting,'” she tells Tom Power in an interview on Q. “And my parents, my mom really, thought it was worthwhile to do for some reason.”

Q23:37Rebecca Black is getting down — and getting even — with her new album, Let Her Burn

The resulting video, much to Black’s surprise, went viral — and not in a good way. In retrospect, the response to “Friday” seems like an absolutely unhinged orgy of online cruelty. Adults — including some prominent comedians — spent weeks mercilessly dunking on a child, turning Black and Friday into a widespread subject of mockery.

Black acknowledges that, at the time, the criticism felt shattering.

“When you’re a 13-year-old, it’s impossible to process,” she says. “You’ve grown up for 13 years knowing that adults know more than you, knowing to look to adults for advice, knowing to look for validation elsewhere as you learn how to operate in the world. Every piece of feedback that I got, I took as

Fendi, Alberta Ferretti kick off Milan Fashion Week

MILAN :Milan kicked off its leg of the month-long catwalk calendar on Wednesday, with Italian luxury labels Fendi deconstructing masculine tailoring and Alberta Ferretti opting for dark colours at their womenswear fashion shows.

Milan Fashion Week follows New York and London events in which designers have been presenting their creations for the autumn/winter 2023-2024 season.

At Fendi, designer Kim Jones added pleated skirt aprons and trains to tailored trouser suits as well as shoulder-baring sleeves to waistcoats.

There were also boiler suits with skirts, slashed knits with halternecks, draped and ribbed dresses as well as Mac coats adorned with sparkling sequined lining.

In show notes, Jones said he was inspired by the way jewellery designer Delfina Delettrez Fendi wore her family label’s archive items. Jones works alongside Delettrez’s mother and the founding family’s scion Silvia Venturini Fendi, who looks after menswear and accessories at the Rome-based label.

“It’s deconstructed but luxurious. There’s a little nod to punk and my admiration for DIY, but moved on towards something chic,” Jones said in the notes.

“The first day that Delfina walked into work, she was wearing blue and brown and I thought she looked so great. There’s a chicness but perversity to the way she twists Fendi, which is what I love.”

Jones’ colour palette mainly stuck to pale blue, greys, cream, brown and black. He added dabs of bright colours with pink and orange dresses.

Accessories included thigh-high boots, a trend also seen at Alberta Ferretti, who opened her show with a strapless grey gown.

Further grey looks, often paired with long shiny black gloves, followed – from trousers suits to short dresses.

Models wore long velvet gowns, checked or corduroy suits, belted coats and jackets as well as sheer sparkling dresses.

Ferretti used mainly dark colours –

Noah Cyrus Embraced the Sheer Trend for Milan Fashion Week

Every fashion girl needs an extreme sheer outfit moment and Noah Cyrus has given us just that. 

The “I Just Want A Lover” singer was seen out in Milan for fashion week wearing a sparkly black sheer hooded dress with freed nipples, black boots and a black thong to match. The 23-year-old has been making her rounds at all the latest fashion weeks wearing intricate and racy outfits while donning the front row of shows like Fendi, Maison Margiela and many others.

The sheer trend is all the rave amongst our favorite celebrities, from Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Camila Cabello. All of our favorites are having huge moments rocking the fun look, baring (almost) it all at the latest runway shows, after-parties or evening galas. 

Sheer has long been a popular part of fashion and now, it’s a trend that seem to be here to stay. And Noah is a continual lover of sheer moments. Last month, Noah attended the Arturo Obegero show wearing a sheer blue ankle-length dress from the brand. She also made an appearance at the Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2023 show in a floor-length sheer gown with a bra top and bottoms underneath, featuring the brand’s signature silver sparkles.

This past year Noah released her sophomore album “The Hardest Part,” with hits like “Ready to Go” and “Hardest Part.”  We’ve all grown up with the singer in our cultural zeitgeist, being the younger sister of fellow pop star Miley Cyrus, but Noah has carved out a fun lane for herself and that reflects often in her fashion choices. From the jet black hair to the bleached eyebrows she stylistically has a unique point of view. We can only assume she’ll be attending more fashion

Blk Ivy: A thrift store and museum of Black nostalgia

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – An old garage in West Philadelphia has been gutted and transformed into a new clothing store. But it’s also a museum of sorts paying tribute to the struggle for social justice.

Nestled near the corner of 36th Street and Lancaster Avenue in West Philadelphia, you can hear the vintage vinyl playing before stepping through the door.

And once inside Blk Ivy, pictures on the wall and the racks of clothing take you back in time.

“This jacket that I picked up in Arkansas, this is a 1961 Lees denim jacket,” Kimberly McGlonn, the store owner, said.

She was a classroom teacher for 20 years and opened the unique experiment two weeks ago.

Blk Ivy is a shoppable museum stocked full of items associated with the fashion of the civil rights movement.

“They’re going to see fashion that’s thrifted and that’s in alignment with the fashion of the 50s, 60s, and 70s,” McGlonn said, “and then, they’ll see vintage pieces that also tell the same story.”

McGlonn curated and collected the pieces from across the country.

“Whenever I’m traveling, I actually pack an extra suitcase to pick up things,” she said.

You will also find books detailing the journeys of activism, a rotary phone in the dressing room and a 1959 Remington typewriter.

“Letters from Birmingham jail by MLK, these were pieces first written by hand and then typed,” McGlonn said.

Black and white photos taken four blocks away capture the moment MLK led a protest with 10,000 people in 1965.

“Even the photography is going to get you to remember the history of Philadelphia, particularly through the lens of MLK’s involvement,” McGlonn said.

She says this store is a way for people to take home a unique piece of clothing and a way to pay honor and

How was the women’s liberation movement and the social change of the 1970s reflected in the clothing women of the day were wearing? This exhibit discusses these questions and more through a series of historical garments,” the museum notes in a statement.

Alia Bhatt’s fashion evolution: Kurtas to dresses to bags

ALia Bhatt
Alia Bhatt is a true fashionista. From ethnic outfits to comfy-chic attire, time and again, she has effortlessly carried every look and made heads turn. She is a vision to behold, who loves to try different outfits, but we also believe that the actress loves the colour black. Here’s all the time she looks magical in black as we’re living in her fairytale!

With a plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit that flaunts her toned leg, Alia Bhatt made a stunning entry on the red carpet in a black embellished gown by Roberto Cavalli Couture. To complete the look, the actress ditches the jewellery and pairs the sheer gown with a pair of strappy black heels.
