In what seemed to be one of the funnier moments in this season's New York Fashion Week spectacular, Vogue editor Anna Wintour was seated next to rapper -- and notoriously eccentric dresser -- Nicki Minaj at Carolina Herrera's show. The image instantly spread across the Internet: Wintour with her signature bob and dark sunglasses looking on solemnly while shoulder-to-shoulder with Minaj who sported a bodice that can only be described as covered in multi-colored cotton balls and a towering blonde beehive.

This past weekend, rapper Nicki Minaj wore another kooky outift to her appearance at the iHeartRadio concert. In addition to a bedazzled, lacy, mess on her torso, the performer wore a pink fried chicken leg necklace. Cute and quirky, right? Some people, though, are suggesting it was in poor taste and had undertones of racial insensitivity, though we didn't pick up on that until someone else brought it to our attention. What do you think? Silly or scandalous?

When you think of Lacoste, you typically think of the sporting life of tennis, polos and cute crocodiles -- not technology, social media and art installations. Despite this, the company celebrated the release of three new fragrances -- Lacoste L.12.12. Blanc, Bleu, and Vert Editions -- with a performance-based flash mob at New York's Grand Central Station, and a pop-up sculpture (called Lacoste Machine L.12.12) made in cahoots with the collective TRONIC, known for their mash-ups of architecture and expermental industrial design.

Our trusty copy editor Mike Berlin has a special fascination and love for the secret-swindling former editrix of News International Rebekah Brooks -- and has more than once regaled us with the tale of how the frizzy-haired maven once made one of her reporters dress up as Harry Potter (on September 11th, no less), just one of the many indignities of working for a boss who relishes in cruel and unusual punishments for their own amusement.
