Exhibitionist: Rihanna stole the show at the CFDA Awards in a glittering, totally transparent nude gown and fur stole. This is probably why she was being honored as style icon of the year, no? 

Provocative: Meanwhile, distribution of Rihanna's fragrance advertisement has been severely restricted in the UK, because it features the singer mostly naked (but totally covered up where it matters!). 

Queen of Daytime: After hosting both "America's Next Top Model" and "The Tyra Banks Show," Tyra Banks is adding yet another television program to her résumé: An as-of-yet unnamed daytime talk show that's slated to air in 2015.

Not Again: Pharrell is just the latest to make waves for donning a feathered Native American headdress in a fashion editorial — this time on the cover of Elle UK. When. Will. They. Learn. 

Diva: Well, Alexander Wang indisputably had the best date to the CFDA Awards. The designer showed up with an iconic — and glamorous — SNL fan favorite in tow. 

Super Sale: J.Crew's profit margins were not spectacular this quarter, mostly because they've been putting everything on sale recently. 

Ugly Truths: Love snakeskin on your shoes or bag? You might start to rethink that. The $1 billion python industry raises a lot of questions about the sustainability and animal welfare. 

Cool Dad: Tom Ford says he's shifted his priorities since becoming a father, redefining his career ambitions and, apparently, forgoing Botox entirely. 

Ripoff: Karl Lagerfeld has been slapped with a lawsuit for allegedly knocking off designs from... New Balance?
