Kerry Washington, Khloe Kardashian, Solange Rally Behind Zendaya

Published

on

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:

“Yeah been bashing my fro for years, compared it to a dog…and u know what I say?” The singer then included a video of herself flipping her hair back and forth.

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.

The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards

Published

on

This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

Halle Berry – Getty Images

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

Storm Reid – Getty Images

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

Ava DuVernay – Getty Images

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
