Kerry Washington, Solange and Khloe Kardashian are just three of several celebrities who have reacted to this week’s controversial remarks made by E!’s Giuliana Rancic regarding Zendaya’s Academy Awards hairstyle.
Rancic suggested during Monday’s episode of Fashion Police that Zendaya’s locs worn to Sunday night’s awards show made her think it “smells like patchouli oil” or “weed.”
Zendaya took a stance and shamed Rancic for her off-putting comments and posted a lengthy Instagram message, stating that her comments were not only a “large stereotype” but “outrageously offensive.”
“There is already harsh criticism of African-American hair in society without the help of ignorant people who choose to judge others based on the curl of their hair,” she wrote.
In response to Zendaya’s well articulated message, Kerry tweeted:
“Well done Beautiful. XO.”
Solange, who has also been subject to hair criticism, tweeted:
Actress Viola Davis even made sure to praise the young Disney star, writing:
“You are beauty personified. I celebrate you sis!”
Even Khloe Kardashian responded with this heartfelt message.
“@Zendaya you are a gorgeous, intelligent young lady! I love all that you represent! Keep empowering and shine bright!”
Followed by a quick apologetic tweet, Rancic delivered a more lengthy apology on E! News Tuesday night and expressed her deepest regrets.
“I want to address something that is weighing heavily on my heart,” Rancic said. “I want to apologize for a comment that I made on last night’s Fashion Police about Zendaya’s hair … I just want everyone to know I didn’t intend to hurt anybody, but I’ve learned it is not my intent that matters, it’s the results. And the result is people are offended including Zendaya.”
In response, Zendaya fired off another lengthy message accepting the host’s apology.
LingeRIH: Rihanna In Talks To Launch Her Own Line Of Intimates
Rihanna is definitely one of the sexiest chicks in the game, so it’s not surprising that she is rumored to be launching a line of lingerie. According to WWD, the pop star, who has made her presence known in the fashion and beauty world with her namesake cosmetic and apparel collections has struck a deal with Tech Style for a line of intimates.
Rihanna reportedly inked a partnership with the Fashion Group, which is already home to successful brands like Fabletics, ShoeDazzle and Just Fab. TechStyle Fashion Group’s partnership with Rihanna wouldn’t be the company’s latest celebrity team-up, as Fabletics already scored a partnership with actress Kate Hudson and singer Demi Lovato, and ShoeDazzle (co-founded by Kim Kardashian, Brian Lee and Robert Shapiro) collaborated with actress-singer Keke Palmer.
The Rihanna-helmed lingerie line hasn’t received an official release date, but samples have already been produced, according to the report. In the meantime Rih is readying the release of her FENTYxPUMA collaboration.
Just last week she announced that she’ll be merging the two brands to launch a joint collection and debuted photos of models sporting the athleisure line in the middle of a desert.
The joint collection will be available for purchase on March 15.
