The Snuggie runway show had it all: prints, colours and canine sizes to suit every Snuggie occasion. But according to Joan Rivers, the Snuggie is a rip off of the Slanket. “I think the Slanket is an item of fashion, because he was on my show How’d You Get So Rich?” Rivers said. “And he was the original — the Snuggie took it from the Slanket.” Sounds like a classic case of which came first, the Snuggie or the Slanket?

The buzz was high surrounding the appearance of Lady Gaga at Out Magazine’s party last night.

Did we mention the wannabe diva left after a mere 15 minutes? [WSJ]

Courtney Love got a little crazy (how shocking) at the Narciso Rodriguez show last night. Love yelled her commentary on the collection, talked to her friend, flailed her arms and did just about everything to detract from her neighbours’ enjoyment of the show. [The Cut]
