Interview of the month

“I think of fashion as something that evolves.

It is a continuation and it is constantly new.

It does change, but there's no invention. Everything has been done one way or another.

And many designers are inspired by vintage clothes to begin with.

But I think the world of fashion has changed a great deal in the last couple of decades.”

Buzzing gossips

At this year's Met Gala, Camila Cabello turned heads with her avant-garde accessory: an ice bag.

Yes, you heard that right. She managed to blend high fashion with the practicality of a picnic cooler.

But, as you might expect, this frosty fashion statement had its hiccups.

The ice melted faster than a popsicle in a sauna, turning her chic bag into a soggy mess and threatening to turn the red carpet into a slip 'n slide.

Despite the potential for a wardrobe malfunction of Titanic proportions, the see-through ice bag was the perfect match for her outfit.

Fans and fashion critics alike were left in awe, and it quickly became the most talked-about accessory of the night.

Who knew that a melting ice bag could make such a splash?

Cardi B on the other hand, had a bit of a brain freeze when asked who designed her Met Gala outfit.

Instead of dropping a name, she went with, "I feel amazing. This is an amazing designer. They're Asian and everything."

Well, that narrows it down to about half the planet!

Classic Cardi, right?

The real kicker? Her outfit was so jaw-droppingly fabulous that everyone was dying to know who the genius behind it was.

Talk about a fashion faux pas!
