How a newscast blew a story on J. Lo

By Jill Rosen
Jill Rosen is AJR's assistant managing editor     


Fox News' Shepard Smith blew it in a recent story, one could say--but good.

Reporting November 4 about Jennifer Lopez's new single, "Jenny from the Block," Smith pointed out that J. Lo's using the single to let fans know that despite unrelenting reports of her diva behavior, her diamonds, her soon-to-be-third marriage, she's still just a homegirl from the Bronx. However, Smith added, those still on that Bronx block beg to differ.

As J.Lo's tune played in the background, Shepard said the song is, "all about how she's a neighborhood girl at heart, but folks from that street in New York, the Bronx section, sound more likely to give her a curb job than a blow job."

Sensing those weren't quite the right lines, Shepard immediately offered: "Or, a, ah, a block party."

"So sorry about that slipup," he added. "I have no idea how that happened, but it won't happen again."

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
