ELLE’s Timberland Trend Article Infuriates Black Twitter

Is this the worst year for black American culture in fashion? It might be. Earlier this year, Marie Claire heralded cornrows as a trend Kendall Jenner took to “a new epic level.” For Voguebig butts became a hot thing Iggy Azalea and Kim Kardashian popularized, and now designers are gelling down everyone’s baby hairs to look like the back of Bob Belcher’s head. It’s dire straits for black American fashion and insult was added to what seems to be a never-ending train of injury and erasure yesterday, thanks to an article on ELLE.com touting Timberlands as a new, cool-girl trend.

Fashion editor Danielle Prescod (who also happens to be black) left black Twitter reeling, mostly because Timberland boots have been a tried and true staple of hip-hop fashion. “This season, I predict a similar ascent to fashion greatness for the classic Timberland boot,” she wrote. “Here’s why: All cool girls are wearing Timbs, from Cara Delevingne to Rihanna to Gwen Stefani.” Sure, Prescod has a point, Cara and RiRi do wear Timberlands, but so did, like, every single hip-hop artist in the 90s til now, including Jay Z, whose daughter the editor notes wears Timbs on the regular. Heck, even Beyoncé wore Timberlands, though they were the Manolo Blahnik ones.

Of course, commenters and tweeters went off on Prescod for failing to reference this very crucial part of this shoe’s history.

Kara Tointon Steps Out in Lover for 2014 Pride of Britain Awards

Kara Tointon has looked to an Aussie label for the 2014 Pride of Britain Awards at Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Monday, October 6, with the English actress stepping out in a signature lace Lover piece.

We’re big fans of this Libra Midi Dress, and we love how the 31-year-old opted for bronzed makeup which perfectly complemented her auburn hair tone. However, we think Kara took the whole tough-feminine vibe, which Lover is so well known for, a little too far with the curly updo, exaggerated side fringe and platforms.

Sophisticated pointed-toe heels and loose waves could’ve worked a treat for amping up the femininity and chilling out on the tough element of this outfit. We also think that thin bracelet mid-arm was unnecessary, and could easily be mistaken as a spare hair tie.

Isabel Lucas’ Boho-Grandma Outfit for Michael Kors’ Young Hollywood Launch Has Our Heads in a Spin

We’re pretty sure Isabel Lucas has nailed the boho-goddess look yet again, for Michael Kors‘ celebration of the Claiborne Swanson Frank’s Young Hollywood launch on October 2, but we can’t be 100 per cent certain.

The Australian beauty donned a long-sleeve floral maxi dress, with more ruffles than even our grandmothers can handle. She used a thick camel-toned belt with a statement diamond buckle to cinch in her waist, and opted for two-strap nude heels to finish the look off with an element of modernity.

We can’t think of any other famous face which could pull off this outfit quite like Isabel, and we’re still pleasantly confused by her attire. We’d love to hear your thoughts, because this whole look has our heads in a spin.

Watch: Lil Jon, Lena Dunham and Ireland Baldwin Turn Up for Rock the Vote

Rock the Vote is leaning on tried and true tactics to get young folks to put down their iPhones and actually show up to vote for the midterm elections. Take a summer hit, remix it so it’s relevant to the cause, add a bunch of young, cool celebrities and voila! You’ve got a PSA that will at worst go viral and at best do what it set out to do, and get people to actually cast their ballots.

This time, Rock the Vote called on Lil Jon to remix the club banger “Turn Down for What” into “Turn Out for What,” a catchphrase that’s supposed to inspire folks to get to the polls and vote on issues that are actually important. Lena Dunham, Fred Armisen, Sophia Bush, Ireland Baldwin, Whoopi Goldberg, Natasha Lyonne and more join the fun, dancing, goofing around and of course, telling us why they’re voting this election. 

Sure, the video is a little ridiculous — there is no way mixing Lil Jon and the democratic process would be anything but. And naturally, since Lena is involved in the project, we get to see her doing the literal no-pants dance (as if we haven’t seen enough).

Watch the video above to see it all play out.
