In this week’s Linkbait news round-up, we ask all the important questions.
IS SHE? ISN’T SHE? IS SHE? ISN’T SHE?
Is Beyoncé pregnant for the second time? Nobody knows. What we do know: she cancelled a show in Belgium due to “dehydration” and “exhaustion”. Somewhere, Kim Kardashian is very, very worried that she’s going to get upstaged. [USA Today]
HIGH STREET COMEBACK OF THE WEEK
M&S reported 3.8% decline in clothes sales this quarter, but at least its womenswear team is trying to stage a bold comeback for autumn/winter. The tactic? Lots of coats. Lisa Armstrong previews the new collection. [The Telegraph]
ANGELINA JOLIE OFFICIALLY BECOMES BETTER THAN YOU
The actress revealed she opted for a double mastectomy to reduce her risk of breast cancer. Brad Pitt called her “absolutely heroic”. Suddenly, all those ‘Brad/Jen/Angie’ tabloid covers seem a little insignificant now, huh? [New York Times]
WANT TO BECOME THE STEVE JOBS OF BRITISH FASHION?
The UK government is pumping £100,000 prize money into a fashion and tech start-up competition. Got an idea? The contest closes in June and the prize will be split between four companies with the most innovative ieas. [WSJ]
LET’S FACE IT, SHE’LL PROBABLY JUST WEAR BODEN
Karl Lagerfeld, Nina Ricci and Vera Wang were among the designers tasked with imagining a dress for Kate Middleton, who is definitely pregnancé. We’re a fan of Lagerfeld’s rack-on-show design – don’t think the Queen would be happy, though. [WWD]
WANT TO DRESS LIKE A NON-PREGNANT CELEB? YOU’RE IN LUCK
If you like tie-dye, crochet and crop tops, you’ll probably love Rihanna’s second collection for River Island. If you don’t, we can’t really help you out there. [Fashionista]
