‘The Have And The Have Nots’ Star Angela Robinson On Her Character’s Fashion Choices

Angela Robinson portrays Veronica Harrington on Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots and while she always brings her all to the character, she also brings the fashion.

In an interview with Page Six, she reveals how costume designer Crystal Hayslett pushed for Veronica Harrington to wear high fashion clothes from Christian Louboutin and Chiara Boni La Petite Robe.

The 57-year-old said, “Mr. [Tyler] Perry would always say, ‘Oh Lord, how much they cost?’ He was always looking at the bottom line.”

She continued, “All you have to do is go to Tyler and say, ‘Hey, do you like this?’ And you would not have to take it any further than him. So that’s been a joy, but when you spend that money he’s like, ‘Wait, what? Wait a minute, how much is that?’”

As for her character, Robinson explained, “Veronica is a millionaire; she came from the projects, so she has the money now and she wants to enjoy the luxury of it. She has to look like money. She commands respect when she walks into a room. She is a woman that knows what she wants.”

The Have And The Have Nots airs on OWN. The premiere date of the eighth season has not yet been announced.

How pandemic is affecting fashion choices – fashion and trends

As the fashion industry at large navigates a seismic transformation, we are also wondering what it all means for us. As you unearth your closet, though, sartorial solecisms are splayed out across it, some are impulse purchases while some are thought-after ones we contacted a swath of people in our field and asked them how the pandemic has affected their buying choices. Will we get back to impulse purchases? Or there will be a thought behind everything see buy? Will fashion be bought as an investment piece? Here is what industry experts have to say

Designer Payal Jain: I have seen a lot of change in the buying pattern of our regular clients, during and post the pandemic situation. Firstly, most people are happy to stay in the comfort of their homes and shop though our website or social media platforms. They are much more relaxed in the buying process and also, ten to choose styles which are classic and timeless. Since not much social interactions are happening yet, people prefer to focus on Pret collections and tend to be price conscious. The special couture pieces are being selected for family weddings, be it on Zoom or in-person small scale events. Casual Pret, relaxed lounge wear, sports wear, fitness and Yoga gear has taken the world by storm and there is a huge shift in the buying preferences of people world wide. Priorities have shifted in the past few months and most people are preferring to buy relaxed, comfortable, easy to wear and maintain clothing, which can be used for multi tasking and staying home or stepping out. I have always believed ‘Less is More’ and my love for sustainable, organic and natural fabrics has been paramount since I started my label. Today, this has become a necessity for all of us and it’s no longer a whim or choice if we wish to sustain the planet we live on. Using natural yarns and textiles, vegetable dyes, sustainable practices in weaving, printing and garment production, biodegradable packaging, limiting water usage and wastage banning use of plastic and recycling or upcycling garments, as well as all waste materials generated in factories is the need of the hour, and what we are working towards, every single day. The strong shift towards all organic and natural has happened across the planet in the past few months. This is not simply about making a change in my mind set or value system, but what is necessary as a collective shift in intention, where each of us becomes conscious of the need of our planet, and differentiates between our ‘Need and Greed’. We must be mindful of what we buy, how much we use and discard, and how much sits somewhere in a landfill. As a designer, I strongly feel the need of the hour is to promote our local, indigenous crafts and textiles, which provide livelihood to our vast community of weavers, artisans’ and craftspersons. Today, when our very existence is in question, it

Fans Lash out at Tyra Banks for ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Fashion Choices

Tyra Banks DWTS Fashion


ABC/Eric McCandless

Each week, a new episode of Dancing With the Stars airs and features Tyra Banks as the host, and each week, fans seem to get more upset with her regarding her fashion choices.

Last week, for instance, when Banks wore a large yellow dress, fans took to Twitter to compare her to Big Bird and say that she should have worn something different.

For Icons Week, it seemed like she started out strong, but when she changed into a new outfit in an ode to Nicki Minaj, fans expressed their displeasure on social media. She announced her intention on Instagram before the show, writing, “Tonight I’ll be rockin’ GREEN again, paying inspiration homage to an acting & music ICON.”


Fans on Twitter Disliked Banks’ Nicki Minaj Outfit

As soon as Banks appeared in her new outfit, fans started to talk about it on Twitter and continued throughout the night.

“@DancingABC oh please Tyra Banks! Stop with all the outfits! You look ridiculous! Oh please bring back Tom & Erin,” one user tweeted.

Another wrote, “I’m glad whoever is styling @tyrabanks on DWTS is choosing God awful outfits,” and they said that “she deserves all that.”

Some were more diplomatic, writing things like, “@DancingABC @tyrabanks I want to be nice… but that second outfit” and including a sad emoji.

Another user wrote, “@DancingABC why do we have to be subjected to awful Tyra Banks? Is it necessary to see her strut out like she’s on the catwalk? This is a dance show! She can’t even do a decent interview. And those god awful outfits. Get rid of her!”

Others said Banks distracts from the rest of the show, writing, “Tyra Banks looks terrible in those ridiculous outfits. She is not the focus of the show rather she is just a distraction.”

“Ok back on Tyra Banks.. again what the f***??? Odd outfits at the least but tonight’s??? The Jetsons? Star Wars. Again WTF?” another wrote.

Plenty of users said the show shouldn’t focus so much on Banks. One wrote, “@TyraBanks please stop making DWTS about your outfits. We know, you look fabulous, but the show’s not about you.”

Yet another wrote, “@TyraBanks @DancingABC you and your outfit need to be rethought. And the windblown look doesn’t help either. Grow the F up and let the show be about the contestants instead of you!”


Other Fans Adored Banks’ Outfits and Cited Nostalgia

Fans seemed to enjoy Banks’ first outfit of the night, and some even reached out to say they liked both of the host’s outfits, especially because the first reminded them of Life Size. 

“@DancingABC tonight and @tyrabanks in that outfit is giving me flashbacks to Life Size,one user tweeted.

“@DancingABC @TyraBanks is wearing beautiful outfits tonight,” another wrote.

One replied to Banks’ tweet

Meet Jill Biden, new first lady of the US; look at her fashion choices

With US President-elect Joe Biden waiting to take office after crossing the 270 mark, Jill Biden is now the first lady in waiting. The 69-year-old-educator has been making waves with her sense of style, which is much loved by social media as it is understated, but beautiful yet subtle and calming.

Let us look at her fashion choices and what it means to the future of America. Dr Jill Biden’s outfits reflect a friendlier demeanour, a friendly wardrobe that is even easy on the palette.

Jill’s understated, elegance is relatable in her choice of pleasant colours, well-cut dresses and pretty accessories, according to Evening Standard. Her wardrobe is very different from Melania Trump’s designer one. She is a woman who juggles work with her family life, and being the wife of a politician.

During her stint as the second lady of the US, Jill taught English full time at Northern Virginia Community College throughout both of her terms. She will continue teaching even now, which will be the first for any FLOTUS. “If we get to the White House, I’m gonna continue to teach,” she told CBS News. “It’s important, and I want people to value teachers and know their contributions, and lift up the profession.”

Her friendly wardrobe consists of shift and wrap dresses in bold and block hues that works for her role as a teacher. She is mostly seen in monochrome dresses, dresses paired with blazers, power suits, etc. Jill’s outfits are versatile to move from day to night and work well with her trusty knee-high black suede boots for day time. And, paired with stilettos, the outfits work well even for formal events.

Jill’s is an “expert in dressing how any middle class American woman might – and therein lies her appeal.” This was evident than in her first US Vogue last summer. She posed with her grandchildren Naomi, Finnegan, Hunter, Maisy, and Natalie at their beach house in Delaware in July 2019. She opted for a blue silk shirt paired with jeans.

Whether Jill will continue to play it sartorially safe or ready to experiment when established at White House remains to be seen.

Dear Abby: Daughter’s fashion choices cause mom embarrassment

DEAR ABBY: Our 19-year-old daughter is wonderful in many ways. She’s smart, attends a university on academic scholarships and earns excellent grades. The problem is the way she dresses. Her shorts are so short they show some cheek, the bathing suits she wears in our backyard pool are almost thongs, she runs at the track in spandex and a sports bra and gets catcalls.

I understand the outfit would be OK for a formal race, but at the track? Why not throw on a T-shirt? The most recent example was a Sunday afternoon, ladies-only baby shower, to which she wore a pale pink (it looked nude) clingy dress that barely covered her butt. No one else was dressed like that. I was embarrassed. She wasn’t raised like this.

I understand there are times when a young woman wants to look alluring. I have tried to talk to her about classy/sexy versus trampy, but she gets defensive. Any advice? — EMBARRASSED MOM IN WEST VIRGINIA

DEAR MOM: Many young women dress the way your daughter does in an attempt to emulate current social media personalities. Others do it to get attention because they are not sure they have anything more to offer. Because lecturing your daughter has fallen on deaf ears, let her learn these lessons on her own. And in the meantime, concentrate on helping her to appreciate more of the important qualities she has to offer in addition to what I am assuming is a killer figure.

** ** **

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been together for 15 years. We seem to have a lot of issues every year around fall. It has been this way for the last five years.

While my husband and I were separated, he was intimate for a month with a younger woman. He decided to stop seeing her and returned home to work on our marriage, but before he approached me about working things out, he apologized to her first. I don’t understand why he owed her an apology. It still bothers me that he felt the need to apologize to her first and not me. What should I do? — HURT IN THE MIDWEST

DEAR HURT: Your husband may not have been entirely honest with the younger woman about his marital status, or he may have felt guilty for leading her on. Who knows? In the interest of saving your marriage, I suggest you focus your attention on the fact that you have your husband back and let this go.

** ** **

DEAR ABBY: I’m a dad with four kids, three of them grown. When we celebrate my birthday or my wife’s, or Father’s Day or Mother’s Day, I’m the one who always pays. For the most recent Father’s Day dinner, the check was $240. My wife and I are still paycheck-to-paycheck people, and at least one of my kids makes five times as much as we do between her and her boyfriend.

Jeff Garcia criticizes Patriots’ Cam Newton for his clothing choices: ‘Why are you dressing like that?’

cam-newton-1400.jpg
Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots were no match for the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday as they got blown out, 33-6. In the fourth quarter with the game out of reach, head coach Bill Belichick elected to pull quarterback Cam Newton in favor of second-year signal caller Jarrett Stidham. 

Following the game, former 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia, who works as a studio analyst for NBC Sports Bay Area, went off on what he believes is on of Newton’s biggest problems: his flashy attire. That’s right.

“You go into this game with two touchdowns, four interceptions, you threw what, three more interceptions?” Garcia said. “You get yanked in the second half, there’s nothing good going your way. Why are you dressing like that, to bring more attention to yourself? I’d be trying to ask the equipment managers ‘Put me in your jock sock cart and sneak me in the back door and I’ll show up on the field and do the best that I can.'”

NBC Sports Bay Area initially posted Garcia’s rant on their Twitter account, but it was taken down.

“This just goes back to a couple years of just watching this guy and seeing him at the podium, but yet what he’s doing on the field does not translate to being that guy,” Garcia added in the clip.

Not everyone on the internet was on board with Garcia’s odd take. 

Newton definitely had his fair share of struggles during Sunday’s game. The Patriots signal caller completed 9-of-15 passes for just 98 yards and three interceptions. None of that is directly connected to his pre and post-game clothing choices, though.

Following the game, Belichick confirmed that the Patriots are sticking with Newton as the team’s starting quarterback.

Jeff Garcia Rips Cam Newton’s Fashion Choices, Encourages Him to Sneak Into Stadium in Jock Strap Cart

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before but a Serious Football-Talking Pundit has shaded their Cam Newton criticism over the usual lines and veered into the fashion department.

Jeff Garcia, who analyzes the game and apparently also sartorial decisions for NBC Sports Bay Area, did not hold back in lighting up the struggling Patriots quarterback after an abysmal performance in New England’s lopsided loss to the Niners.

“You go into this game two touchdowns, four interceptions,” he said. “You throw, what, three more interceptions? You get yanked in the second half. There’s nothing good going your way. Why are you dressing like that to bring more attention to yourself?”

“I’d be trying to ask the equipment manager, ‘Put me in your jock sock cart and sneak me in the back door and I’ll show up on the field and do the best that I can,’” Garcia continued. “This just goes back to a couple years of just watching this guy and seeing him at the podium and yet what he’s doing on the field does not translate to being that guy (who dresses like that).”

Put me in your jock sock cart? What is this, a hilarious episode of The Little Rascals in which they sneak into the big game? Or an even grittier reboot of The Town featuring Jeremy Renner sneaking into Foxborough under the cover of Stephon Gilmore’s sweaty unmentionables?

Let’s make no mistake. Newton has been abysmal, especially since contracting a potentially lethal virus. Over his last two games, he’s thrown no touchdowns and five picks and the Patriots have — gasped — veered toward a brand of irrelevance completely antithetical to the Bill Belichickian ideal.

What he wears to and fro has little to do with his performance. It’s just a low-hanging thing for the uncritical to get upset by. Garcia’s comments might carry a little more weight had he not been previously seen in public dressed like the pallbearer at a WWE funeral, the bassist in a bad Woodstock cover band, and someone serving as co-counsel to Saul Goodman.

There’s no real point in piling and enumerating just how specious and silly this argument is. Not when his employer tweeted out the clip, then had to think better of it and attempt to memory-hole it after it was too late. Never a good sign.

Melania Trump’s Fashion Choices Don’t Mean Anything, Report Says

KEY POINTS

  • Melania Trump doesn’t think of the “why” behind her fashion choices
  • The First Lady told Stephanie Winston Wolkoff that her pink dress wasn’t a nod to gay pride
  • The FLOTUS just laughed off the press’ attempts to decipher the meaning of her wardrobe

Melania Trump just dresses the way she wants without thinking or putting any meaning to her fashion choices.

Vanity Fair’s Kenzie Bryant wrote an article about the First Lady’s outfit saying, “Her clothes don’t mean anything.” She added that while Melania can afford any outfit, she goes for what she looks good in and what she thinks is appropriate for the occasion.

Bryant recalled her previous conversation with “Me and Melania” author Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who revealed that Melania doesn’t put too much thought about the meaning of her wardrobe. 

“Melania doesn’t think about the ‘why’ of her fashion choices and what she is wearing,” Winston Wolkoff told her. “She laughs off the press’s attempts to decipher meaning from her clothing.”

Winston Wolkoff also shared a dialgue she had with Melania in which the latter laughed off an incident involving a reporter who suggested that she was wearing a pink ensemble on one outing as a nod to gay pride.

“They saying, ‘She was wearing that dress because she didn’t say anything about gay parade on Sunday but she wore Monday to give the nod for the gay people,’” Winston Wolkoff said.

“Are you kidding? It never even crossed my mind,” the FLOTUS told her.

Melania’s powder blue Ralph Lauren dress during President Donald Trump’s inauguration is often compared to former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, but Melania downplayed the comparison.

“We are such a different type of women,” Melania said. 

“If you really think about it, right? She was, like, skinny, short, tiny. I’m not that way.”

Melania was asked two decades ago if she could picture herself as the first lady when she spoke with ABC News correspondent Don Dahler for a North Shore Animal League America campaign. She gave a positive response because she is confident in her husband’s leadership skills. Melania said she would support and stand by Trump and even dropped the names of the former first ladies that she wanted to emulate.

“I would be very traditional, like Jackie Kennedy and Betty Ford,” Melania said.

Trump is aiming to be re-elected as the U.S. president and Melania was supposed to join him at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania. However, Melania decided to cancel her attendance due to a lingering cough.

Both the POTUS and FLOTUS tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month. They have already recovered and have already tested negative.

Designer Clothing – The Best Choices Are Online

There are so many different clothing outlets that it can be hard to know where to buy the latest designer clothing. However, as the UK high street buckles under the strain of the recession, more and more people are turning to the Internet to find the designer clothing labels they crave…and saving money in the process.

More Choice Online

When you look at designer clothing online you can be sure of great choice and great value, something that the high street has repeatedly failed to offer some customers. You could go to a small high street store and find an item you like, only to be told that your size isn’t in stock and the larger city store has it instead. This can be frustrating. The best advice is to look on the Internet and find your favourite items in an online store. Online stores stock a wide range of designer clothing which means you don’t have to trail round the high street trying to find that new dress or skirt.

Online Retailers Are Surviving The Recession

Of course, fashion companies have realised the potential of online shopping. Over the last few years, the number of people logging on to the Internet to buy their designer clothing has increased significantly. Sole online retailer ASOS.com has seen staggering profits for the first quarter of 2009 and they have proved they are bucking the downward trend that is making the high street suffer. Despite the fact you have to pay postage and packing online, there is just so much more choice on offer and people are lured in by the fact they can shop from the comfort of their armchair.

Buy Now, Pay Later

Another benefit of buying designer clothing online is that you don’t have to feel like you are handing over lots of cash for an item that you fear you can’t afford. For many, shopping online with a credit or debit card is like paying with imaginary money and doesn’t dent your pocket as much. Of course, the money still gets taken out of your account, but the psychological implications of handing over cash in a shop make it much harder to digest, whereas you can shop online and have that sense of “buy now, pay later”.

So, if you’re looking for the best designer clothing, head to the Internet and you’ll find a plethora of beautiful clothes at great prices.
