Rihanna's Denim Thong Returns: Rihanna took to Instagram yesterday posting teaser pictures from the set of her music video for "Pour It Up." The images featured the infamous denim thong, from a quickly deleted post back in May, from every possible angle including: layered over another thong, stuffed with dollar bills, and a seated close-up from behind. This set of posts follows up yesterday’s teasers of her other music video outfits, which included a fishnet onesie, a bejeweled bra/pasties combo, and a pink jumpsuit accessorized with a blonde wig and pink eyebrows.

Christian Louboutin Fights Anti-Islam Poster: Luxury shoe designer Christian Louboutin is going to court once again -- this time against Flemish activist group "Women Against Islamisation" for unauthorized use of its iconic red soled shoes in one of its campaign posters. The poster in question features the slogan “Liberty or Islam?” and the former Miss Belgium winner Anke Van Dermeersch in a pair of Louboutins holding up her skirt with derogatory terms including "whore" and "provactive" demarcating various skirt lengths. Louboutin's lawyers say the poster tarnishes the label's image and wants a permanent injunction against the group. A decision is not expected until next week. [The Telegraph]
