Good afternoon, Glamazons! It’s finally friday! Woohoo! I need to do some last minute shopping but I definitely plan to end off the day partying it up with a handful of my close friends. Are you excited that Christmas is only 2 days away? I haven’t wrapped a thing!
Whether you celebrate Christmas, Kwanzaa or Hanukkah, The Glamazons wish you the happiest of holidays! MUAH.
Anyway I have your daily dose of fashion and beauty news to get your weekend started on the right foot! Leggo!
Jersey Shore’s JWOWW Launches a Bikini Line
Jersey Shore‘s J-Woww has just entered the fashion world. ::Pause for Dramatic Effect:: with a new line of bikinis she “designed” in collaboration with Perfect Tan Bikinis. Just in case you needed something to pair with your DTF pickle smelling lotion or tanning lotion by Snooki, this is PERFECT (*sarcasm*) for you. And please note: J-Woww has cleverly created bikini tops that have detachable straps (so you don’t get those god-awful tan lines) and if you’re worried about the cups staying in place, they have silicone adhesive that activates in warm temperatures. And they’re reusable. We just MIGHT be sold on these, guys. [NY Mag]

Ivanka Trump has a little bit of a problem on her hand. She has been accused by fashion designer Derek Lam of ripping off two of his footwear designs. And once again, the shoes look awfully similar. What do you think, Glamazons? Did Ivanka rip off Derek? Will the ripoffs EVER end? [WWD]
Jackie Magazine Publisher Doesn’t See Anything Wrong With Calling Rihanna the “N” Word! Grrr!
Remember the lovely (*sarcasm*) magazine editor, Eva Hoeke, who offered up a sincere (*sarcasm*) apology on behalf of Jackie Magazine for calling Rihanna a “niggabitch” with a “ghetto booty”? Well, after she resigned, the publisher, Yves Gijrath, released a statement explaining that he’s actually NOT sorry.
[T]here is nothing wrong in the magazine. [Hoeke] presented it as a joke, but it most certainly was not a joke. It was an interpretation [of a fashion style]…She should have said: “we did not realize this interpretation is such a touchy subject. We never meant any harm and offer our sincere and upright apologies.” But because of all the fuss, Eva started to wiggle in all directions, and therefore we have come to the conclusion her credibility has been undermined.
Nothing wrong?! Is he kidding? I personally have a problem with the “N” word no matter who uses it. For me, it isn’t a term of endearment and I give folks a piece of my mind if they ever try to cross me with it so I was appalled when the magazine decided to publish that and fuel the ignorance.
Also, apparently they use that word to describe a type of fashion in the netherlands…Girl, WHAT? [Fashionista]
Man Dies Over a Pair of Jordans
Last night, as I was browsing the city for last minute gifts and noticed the enormous lines of people stationed in front of sneaker stores for the new Jordan Concords, I just knew I would wake up to some bad news surrounding it. Unfortunately, I was right. Last night, shortly after the new sneakers were released, Tyreek Amir Jacobs of Washington D.C. was stabbed to death over the sneakers. Horrible. Our condolences go out to his family. And buying public, nothing—especially not a pair of kicks—is worth taking a life. [Oh Boom]
