Zendaya Fires Back At E!’s Giuliana Rancic After Locs Comment

Published

on

Zendaya Coleman took to Instagram on Monday night to fire back at E! News’ Giuliana Rancic, who made some off-putting comments about the young star’s red carpet Academy Awards look.

The gorgeous actress stepped onto the carpet on Sunday night in a stunning cream, off the shoulder gown and wore her hair in a beautiful, yet unconventional style for the Academy Awards, locs. According to the young star, her look was inspired by the one and only, Lisa Bonet.

While critiquing the 18-year-old’s look, Rancic suggested that star looked like she smelled of patchouli oil or weed.

The comment led Coleman to write a lengthy, well articulated Instagram message where she referenced other well known stars, such as director Ava DuVernay, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Ledisi, and author Terry McMillan who all have locs. “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,” the 18-year-old wrote. “My [me] wearing my hair in locs on an Oscar red carpet was to showcase them in a positive light, to remind people of color that our hair is good enough.”

She continued, “To me, locs are a symbol of strength and beauty, almost like a lion’s mane. I suggest some people should listen to India Arie’s ‘I Am Not My Hair’ and contemplate a little before opening your mouth so quickly to judge.”

Giuliana later took to Twitter to apologize to the 18-year-old, writing:

“Dear , I’m sorry I offended you and others. I was referring to a bohemian chic look. Had NOTHING to do with race and NEVER would!!!”

Hot Or Bothered: Fashion At The 2017 American Music Awards

Published

The night music fans have been waiting for is finally here! The 45th American Music Awards went down right Sunday night at Microsoft Theater in L.A. and a host of your favorite stars hit the red carpet in some looks that were hot and some that had us bothered … let’s start with the hot!

The evening’s host Tracee Ellis Ross sparkled and shined in this burgundy sequined Stella McCartney gown. We’re  sure her mother Diana Ross inspired this look.

Meanwhile her  sister-in-law Ashlee Simpson Ross dazzled in a sparkly number by Christian Siriano.

And of, the evening’s Lifetime Achievement Award winner and honoree – Diana Ross proved why she’s a music and fashion icon in this black gown and hat.

 

Selena Gomez showed off her killer bod wearing a Coach leather minidress and brand new platinum hair.

Also killing it in an LBD – that’s leather black dress, was Ciara wearing Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture. Ok Ciara!

 

Demi Lovato looked like a goddess in this black sheer strapless gown by Ester Abner.

 

And, Kelly Rowland gave us grecian vibes in this velvet gown with embellished bodice.

But the look that stole the show  DJ Khaled’s son Asahd, looking super adorable in his tiny black suit and Gucci loafers that cost a whopping $275. That’s what we call winning at 1 year old.

But someone whose look was not winning … Nick Cannon. We’re not sure why he was dressed like a Bratz doll, but he needs to stop.

Sadly we also have to request that whoever dressed Pink in this awful tulle Monique Lhuillier dress be fired immediately. Sorry we love you Pink but this dress was a hot damn mess.
