Princess Diana Inspired This Popular Trend Bloggers Are Loving

Princess Diana was one of the best-dressed women in history, even so, that the Kensington Palace opened a fashion exhibit featuring her outfits titled Diana: Her Fashion Story. And how could we forget her wedding dress with a tail longer than 7 meters and dramatic puff sleeves? Or that off-the-shoulder black dress that ended up auctioning for 6 million dollars?

It’s been two decades since her death and the mark she left on the fashion world is clearly significant. Now, another staple piece from the princess is becoming popular among bloggers and influencers around the world: a blouse with dramatic shoulders and black-and-white polka dots.

That T-shaped silhouette is more stylish than ever thanks to French designer Simon Jaquemus and the blouse from his Les Santons de Provence collection, which has become a fashion favorite, according to the Spanish magazine S Moda.

The princess wore a polka-dot dress with bulky sleeves and tight at the waist (shown above) at Ascot horse racing exactly 29 years ago and the similarities to Jacquemus’ design are undeniable.

“My name is Simon, I love white, blue, Marseille and the 80s,” it says on the website of the French designer, who already gained the likes of celebrities such as Rihanna and Solange.

Jacquemus grew up on a farm in the south of France and, according to an interview with ELLE, he cites designer Jean Paul Gaultier as his inspiration, but there is no doubt that the style of the princess and her head designers, Bruce Oldfield and Victor Edelstein, have had some impact on his creative process… and the trendsetters are loving it!

Kelly Osbourne Gives the Sample Size a Metaphorical Middle Finger

Sample sizes are not meant for everybody nor every body, and Kelly Osbourne recently documented her experience with one for all to see.

“When the dress is too big for your body but too small for your ass. I’ve been in this bathroom for 20 minutes trying to get it off!” Osbourne, 32, captioned a photo of herself in her bra and underwear with a black dress around her waist.

“#SampleSizeSuckMyD—,” the star concluded her photo on Instagram and Twitter on Friday.

Osbourne has previously spoken out about body image, specifically her own self-consciousness and insecurities.

“I discovered that I never wanted to be the skinniest, the prettiest, the smartest, the funniest, the tallest the best at anything! Because you know what? There will always be someone ‘better,’ ” she shared last March.

“You can’t change who you are, but you can change your actions. My wish is that girls and women stop competing with each other and learn that we are our best allies.”

Donald Trump Rally Video Accidentally Proclaims He’s ‘Putting Our Minors Back to Work’ 

Attention all unemployed minors: Jobs are coming!

Donald Trump, 71, delivered a speech at a rally on Friday in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, promising new jobs and support for our veterans.

But the president’s message was slightly skewed in a video promotion for the rally that Trump himself posted on Facebook later in the day.

The video’s creator seems to have fallen victim to a classic case of homophone confusion, writing that the White House is “putting our minors back to work” — referring to underage citizens as opposed to the coal miners Trump has championed throughout his campaign and presidency.

The gaff did not go unnoticed on Social Media, where Trump supporters and detractors joked about the typo. Facebook user Steve Robbins commented, “Hopefully the miners get work also. I mean it’s great for our youth to have employment, but mining seems kind of dangerous as a first job.”

“This is absolutely hysterical!!” wrote Ivelisse Berio LeBeau. “Yes, let’s put kids back to work, who cares about child labor laws!”

Trump supporter Kim Rubin commented, “Whoever is writing your copy needs to learn to spell! ‘MINORS’ are children; ‘MINERS’ mine coal. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a Trump fan, but that doesn’t mean I give glaring mistakes a pass!”

Ironically, minor miners were common in the early years of the 20th century, when children were preferred to do the work due to their small stature and ability to fit in spaces adults could not. One of the first child labor laws for the mines was passed in 1885, which required boys to be at least 12 to work in the coal breakers.

“We have eliminated restrictions on the production of American energy,” Trump said at the rally. “We have ended the war on clean, beautiful coal. And we are putting our miners back to work.”

Malika Haqq Shares Love Tips from BFF Khloé Kardashian, Spills on Split from ‘Aggressive’ Ex Ronnie Ortiz-Magro

Malika Haqq has stepped out of her comfort zone in love and in reality TV.

Haqq, who is best friends with Khloé Kardashian, opened up to PEOPLE about her split from ex Ronnie Ortiz-Magro at a press event for her new show, Famously Single.

“Ronnie and I are really, truly opposites,” Haqq, 34, said. “His love language is very aggressive. It’s verbally aggressive, it’s physically aggressive. It’s just the way he expresses himself.”

“My love language is communication. I’m a big communicator and I’m affectionate,” she continued. “We show our love language in two very different ways, so the way we were trying to communicate with each other was often misconstrued because we don’t speak the same language.”

Haqq added: “Life is not perfect. Other human beings need room for air and you also need to give yourself room for that. That was something that I was working on. I went into this situation as open-hearted as I could be.”

“ was like, ‘Maybe this will be something that will break a cycle for you. There are some things you can do. There’s things you can learn. There might be someone there that you might like,’ ” Haqq said. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, no. Never.’ ”

But Haqq believes that with every risk comes reward.
