Press Rewind: Pop culture from the week

Recap of New York and London Fashion Week
It’s the tail end of New York Fashion Week (NYFW) and London Fashion Week (LFW) and the Queen of fashion herself, Anna Wintour, is back at it again with the indoor-sunglasses and killer heels. As the editor-in-chief, Wintour has seen her fair share of exotic fashion trends from shoulderpads to fishnets, but nothing was more exotic than the company she kept at this year’s most anticipated shows. At the Richard Quinn show during LFW, Wintour was seated front row with none other than HRH Queen Elizabeth II. As the first Queen of England to ever attend a London Fashion Week show, this momentous occasion was overshadowed by talk of Anna Wintour’s previous front row buddy, rapper and Queen of her own world, Cardi B. At Alexander Wang’s final show, the two unlikely fashion icons were brought together under their common love of couture (Wintour) and publicity (Ms. B). NYFW and LFW was the epitome of “too many queens in the kingdom” and honestly, we couldn’t be more thrilled.
Fergie drops the ball on the national anthem performance
At this year’s NBA All Star Game, the crowd was assaulted with a not so ‘Glamorous’ rendition of the National Anthem from former Black Eyed Pea, Fergie. After being ridiculed for her off-key vocals, Fergie took to social media to publicly apologize for her performance. Upon getting in touch with celebrity gossip platform TMZ, the ‘Fergalicious’ singer states that, “I love this country and honestly tried my best." It’s okay Fergie-Ferg, we still love you. If Mariah Carey can bounce back from her New Year's Eve debacle, I’m sure everyone will forget about this, you know, in about five years or so. Keep doing your thing Fergie, and remember, even in the darkest of times, Big Girls Don’t Cry.
