Change.org Petition Asks Beyonce to Comb Blue Ivy’s Hair; Stella McCartney Joins War Child Art Project

And Spanx launches a denim line.

Change.org Petition Asks Beyonce to Comb Blue Ivy’s Hair: When recent photos surfaced of Bey and Jay returning from a weekend getaway in the Hamptons, the world took notice (yet again) that their daughter, Blue Ivy, was having a complete “I woke up like this” moment—and not in a good way. Thus, a ridiculous Change.org petition was started (which now has 85 signatures), urging the power couple to comb little Blue's hair. The Root's Yesha Callahan highlighted this unbelievable (and uncalled for) idea: "There were also comments about how Beyoncé and Jay Z always leave the house looking like a million bucks, but what about Blue Ivy?" she wrote. "So would people be happy if Beyoncé threw a weave or flatiron through Blue Ivy’s hair? Or how about a million beads and braids? Then you’ll have the natural-hair commanders complaining about how much damage that can cause to her hairline. Basically, if you’re Beyoncé and Jay Z, you’re damned if you do Blue Ivy’s hair, and you’re damned if you don’t. [The Cut]

Stella McCartney Joins War Child Art Project: In the midst of the #BringBackOurGirls campaign and the Boko Haram crisis in Nigeria, designer Stella McCartney announced Tuesday that she is joining forces with War Child, a world-wide art project that works with children to raise awareness of war’s effect on adolescents, as well as offers them cognitive support. “This project is about young people standing with children affected by conflict,” McCartney said. “Children see the world with clarity and honesty. War Child UK and I are excited to share their insights through art that will raise awareness and encourage the world to do more to protect children from war.” [Vogue UK]
