Fly Or Fail: Katy Perry Rocks Gelled Baby Hair, Again

Once again, Katy Perry rocks gelled baby hairs. Are you here for it?

Clearly, Katy Perry has a fascination with pushing the envelope when it comes to her personal style. And time and time again, she's being shaded and ripped to shreds from head to toe for it.

Whether it's cotton candy tresses or a Pokemon-inspired stage outfit at the Super Bowl XLIX, Perry seems unfazed by the unwarranted attention her style and beauty choices bring – especially when people claim her costume-like ensembles are a form of cultural appropriation. So much so that she rocked a chignon with gelled down baby hairs at the Givenchy A/W 2015 Paris Fashion Week show this past Sunday (Mar. 8) with the utmost confidence (cues Kanye West's "Can't Tell Me Nothing). And this isn't her first rodeo either, the rants regarding her baby hair 'do first surfaced this summer when Katy went balls to the walls accompanying the unexpected look with two multicolor top knots and bleach blonde brows.

While Katy kept things subtle this time around think we can all agree that her gelled baby hair look has hit it's peak saturation and is due to be laid to rest, for good.

Sorry Katy but we're stamping the resurgence of this throwback look as a fail. Vixens, what do you think?

For $900 American Dollars, You Can Own A Pair Of Pre-Dirtied Gucci Sneakers

Fresh off of their announcement that they'll be working on creating programming to implement diversity and inclusion, Gucci will be selling intentionally scuffed-up and dirty sneakers for $900.

According to the New York Post, the Italian brand is releasing its latest shoe, the "Screener” sneakers, on its website and in-stores. The purposely dirty kicks were created for a "vintage, distressed effect.”

"This shabby chic sneak comes dressed with the brand’s trademark Sylvie Web trim and is available for men in both high ($930) and low tops ($870) in various colorways. Women’s styles are available, too, and many got a fresh look for Spring 2019 with a festive strawberry print ($980), and removable, embellished cherries ($1,250)."

While we'd rather let life beat down our sneakers for free, some people will actually buy these kicks, which reportedly come with *cleaning instructions* on how to make sure they stay...fresh.

Gucci is selling dirty sneakers for $1,100," one Twitter user wrote in response to the news. "Fun hack: For $700 you can buy a pair of regular Gucci sneakers and get them dirrty yourself." We agree.

Check out the reactions to these sneakers below.

Gucci And Dapper Dan Announce $5M Programming Aimed At Diversity And Inclusion

February was a difficult month for luxury brand Gucci. The legendary fashion house pulled a balaclava sweater from physical and online stores that many deemed disrespectful. The black sweater with a red print around the mouth area was deemed by many as reminiscent of blackface.

With the help of Dapper Dan and other notable celebrities, Gucci is trying to make things right. They recently announced their new Changemakers Council, which according to reports will feature a board that will work together to select inclusive elements of programming. Besides the Harlem designer and Gucci collaborator, DeRay McKesson, will.i.am, writer/activist Brittany Packnett and many more will be part of the Council.

Through this new Gucci Changemakers initiative, the fashion brand and the designer will also introduce the Changemakers Scholarship, which awards a $20,000 grant to selected students over the course of four years. They will also implement the Changemakers Fund, which "is a $5 million fund that will invest in community-based programs, particularly those helping communities of color, in cities across the U.S."

“As a partner, I am proud to work with Gucci and other community leaders to help guide programs that will create meaningful impact for the Black community and fashion as a whole,” Dapper Dan said in a statement regarding the new project. “It is imperative that we have a seat at the table to say how we should be represented and reimagined. Through our work together, Gucci is in a position to lead the overall industry toward becoming a better more inclusive one.”

Virgil Abloh And Louis Vuitton Condemn Sex Abuse Amid 'Leaving Neverland'

Virgil Abloh and Louis Vuitton are speaking up against child sex abuse. Abloh debuted a Michael Jackson-inspired collection in Paris Fashion Week in Jan. 2019, but in the wake of the allegations revisited by HBO's Leaving Neverland, the artistic director announced the luxury brand is pulling pieces of the FW19 line from production.

Abloh released a statement to WWD on Thursday (Mar. 14), condemning child abuse and explaining the motive behind the fall menswear collection. "I  am aware that, in light of this documentary, the show has caused emotional reactions. I strictly condemn any form of child abuse, violence or infringement against any human rights," he said. “My intention for this show was to refer to Michael Jackson as a pop culture artist. It referred only to his public life that we all know and to his legacy that has influenced a whole generation of artists and designers."

Michael Burke, Louis Vuitton’s chairman and chief executive officer, also elaborated on the controversy surrounding the collection, noting that they were "unaware" of the documentary prior to presenting the collection in Paris. "We find the allegations in the documentary deeply troubling and disturbing," Burke told The New Yorker. "Child safety and welfare is of utmost importance to Louis Vuitton. We are fully committed to advocating this cause."

A spokesperson for the French label also confirmed that "no item that directly features Michael Jackson elements" will be available to the public. "The Fall-Winter 2019 Men’s collection has multiple inspirations and will be launched in stores in July," the statement reads.

As previously reported, Leaving Neverland spoke with two men who alleged they were sexually abused by Jackson when they were young. The shocking footage has triggered a worldwide response, both positive and negative. While some networks and organizations have started to remove Jackson-related content from circulation, some supporters have launched protests in their local areas to defend Jackson's innocence.

The singer's family has also denied the allegations and is seeking legal action against HBO and the alleged victims.
