Fashionista Week In Review: Gabby Douglas’ Hair Controversy, Remembering Anna Piaggi, and Is Ryan Lochte Stylish?
Gabby Douglas’ Gymnastics Hairgate: Some mean people lashed out at gold medal winning and history-making gymnast Gabby Douglas over social media because of perceived problems with her hair. We chatted with Gabby’s mom, who had a thing or two to say to Gabby’s detractors. Then we took a look at why black athletes–and their hair–just can’t catch a break.
