In only a year, Fenty Beauty has pulled off a makeover of the makeup industry. Founded by the singer, Rihanna with luxury goods giant LVMH’s Kendo division, Fenty introduced its first collection last fall—including a much-hyped foundation dubbed Pro Filt’r that comes in 40 diverse shades—with the aim of catering to all women, regardless of skin color.
Makeup enthusiasts rejoiced, not only over the products but also for how Fenty featured women of color in its advertising. Though some other brands, such as M.A.C and Make Up For Ever, already sold expansive shade ranges, Fenty’s unabashed celebration of inclusivity in their makeup campaigns put an unprecedented spotlight on the need for diverse beauty products.
Fenty’s success—the brand, which reportedly made $100 million in sales in its first 40 days on the market, is now available in 29 countries, including Bahrain and Malaysia—sent competitors rushing to expand their own product lines: several brands in the past year have widened their offerings, in what some have termed the “Fenty Effect.” Now Fenty has expanded into a full-fledged line, offering eyeshadows, liquid eyeliner, and lip color in addition to their original offerings.

Kim Kardashian sues Missguided Fashion Company for using her image to sell designs she has already used
Kim Kardashian West has taken a fashion company to court. Kim just filed suit against Missguided USA, an online retailer that sells outfits resembling ones worn by celebs, and oftentimes by Kim herself, for using her name and image without permission to advertise their own “knock-off” designs.
In the documents, obtained by TMZ, Kim cites multiple instances where Missguided posted its own versions of outfits, Kim was photographed wearing. Kim claims the outfits are often whipped up and peddled in a matter of days, sometimes hours.
Her lawsuit includes a side by side of her own post, next to one from Missguided as evidence of what pisses her off about the company.
She also says Missguided often tags her on their social media posts, and includes photos of her giving people the wrong idea that she’s working with the company.
The Missguided lawsuit is just one of many more to come against fashion knockoff brands.
Kim just slammed Fashion Nova for recreating her vintage Mugler “boob belt” dress from the other night, saying this practice by fast fashion companies was “devastating.” Fashion Nova did not use her image to sell their stuff.
Missguided, however, used her image and that’s why Kim’s going after them.
Kim is asking a judge for an injunction to immediately stop Missguided from using her image …. and she wants damages in excess of $10 million.
Floyd Mayweather rocks Gucci from up-to-down, disables social media comments
Floyd Mayweather recently decked Gucci brand from neck-to-toe, and to avoid further controversy, he disabled his Instagram comments.
This is coming after Floyd decided to continue patronizing Gucci, despite all the major criticism the clothing company has faced over the past month, for releasing a sweater that many called “racist” because it appears to be blackface.
Mayweather backed them on a massive shopping spree last week, he backed them on his private jet just a day later and on Monday, he took it one step even further by turning himself to Gucci.
The boxing legend posted a photo in a Gucci shirt, Gucci socks and Gucci shoes, and captioned it, “BORN A LEADER.”
However, Floyd disabled all comments.
Recall that Floyd’s been hit by all kinds of celebs for backing the brand, with 50 Cent attacking the guy on social media and T.I. making a whole rap song devoted to the issue.
