Solange Had No Words For ?fashion Police,? But Her Flip Of The Hair Spoke Volumes - Yahoo News

http://www.chicemma.com The E! talk show isn't the only media outlet guilty of ridiculing the singer for her natural hair , she said.In Touch Weekly"compared it to a dog," she tweeted. In a column last year about pets that resemble celebrities, the gossip magazine reportedly ran a photo of a reader's Yorkshire terrierpoodle mix side by side with a photo of Knowles. "Basically twinsies" was the snarky caption. "What can I say?" tweeted Knowles. Turns out, GIFs speak louder than words.

I wanted my clothes to fit," Clarke said. When Clarke tried to sell her trendy plus-size designs to retailers, the response was always the same. "They would say, 'You know if it was in straight size, we would put it on the rack, but because it's in plus-size, no one's gonna buy it,'" Clarke said. Clarke took her business online. It was a convertible dress that launched her sales, but it's interaction with clients on social media like Facebook and Instagram that's helped sustain it.

'Fashion Police' co-host apologizes for 'weed' jab at Zendaya's dreadlocks | Entertainment News | KATU.com - Portland News, Sports, Traffic Weather and Breaking News - Portland, Oregon

(Photo by Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP) Story Photos 150225_giuliana_rancic_wenn22222065 LOS ANGELES (AP) Giuliana Rancic is apologizing to Zendaya and others offended by Rancic's "Fashion Police" jab at the actress-singer's Oscar-night dreadlocks. On "E! News" Tuesday, Rancic said the reaction to her comments has increased her awareness of, in her words, "cliches and stereotypes." They are damaging, she said, adding that she and others have the responsibility to avoid perpetuating them. During Monday's "Fashion Police" on the E! channel, Rancic said that Zendaya's hair suggested the smell of patchouli oil or marijuana. Her "E! News" remarks went beyond an apology tweet in which Rancic said her references had nothing to do with race.

Designing with a higher goal Bowker, who has studied both fashion and chemistry, first started developing responsive color-change compounds while earning her Masters in textiles at the Royal College of Art, inspired by the debilitating spinal condition that has her in and out of hospital. "I really want to create a product range for myself that means that I can monitor my spine and condition," she says. "I don't listen to myself when I'm getting ill, and it gets to the point where I'm on crutches before I'll listen to the fact that I have to look after myself." Early in her career she worked with the UK's National mephisto shoes Health Service to develop a series of responsive bandages, but when it became clear that it would take at least 20 years to produce a working sample under their funding model, the project was shelved. She returned to her fashion roots to overcome this problem. "I just thought there's got to be a quicker or more profitable way to do this, rather than doing this in pure research," she says.

Inditex bans angora wool products - Feb. 10, 2015

One of the world's biggest fashion firms has banned the sale of angora wool after activists highlighted the cruel treatment of rabbits by farms in China. Inditex, which owns Zara, Massimo Dutti and Bershka, said it would stop selling angora garments in all of its 6,400 shops after facing months of pressure from animal rights campaigners. One campaign against angora wool showed videos of live rabbits screaming while fur is pulled from their skins on Chinese farms. The footage, obtained by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) at 10 farms in China, also showed rabbits being stretched on boards and cut as their fur is hacked off.

Haute Couture Fashion Week: Christian Dior - Yahoo News

A crowd of celebrities came out to view Raf Simons' latest collection, which has a distinctly retro feel. On a giant platform outside the Parisian museum today, models showcased the 1960s-inspired looks of the Christian Dior Spring-Summer 2015 haute couture collection. The designer chose to play with contrasting volumes, namely in long, loose and transparent trench coats worn over embroidered mini-dresses. Flared skirts also made a strong showing, echoing the French fashion house's signature design codes. Colorful stripe motifs are a recurring theme in the collection, along with other groovy geometric prints seen in jumpsuits, bodysuits and dresses. As usual at Dior, flowers in the mix too, either in prints or in intricate embroidery. Combining the retro with the modern, the show also paired a number of go-go style mini-dresses with ultra-chic latex boots (ankle or thigh-high) in black, green, red and even orange . Fashion

Salma Hayek leads Saint Laurent menswear finale - Yahoo News

Joining her were actor Will Peltz and, nearby, Vogue magazine editor Anna Wintour, who nursed her jetlag in shades, having just arrived in the French capital. The Saint Laurent collection the final show on the final day of menswear posed a serious question: Has controversial designer Hedi Slimane, who everyone loves to hate and hates to love, finally been vindicated? Here are the highlights of Sunday's fall-winter menswear 2015 shows, including show reports from Paul Smith, Lanvin and Saint Laurent. SLIMANE FINALLY VINDICATED? The fashion press is a tough bunch. Saint Laurent's Hedi Slimane has been criticized, chewed up and thrown out a hundred times. The Franco-Tunisian designer courted controversy first in 2012 amid accusations he threw out the precious YSL heritage in his debut steampunk fashion collection for the revered Parisian house by going punk and dropping "Yves" from the house name.

While Versace chose to play up feminine curves in sensual, close-fitting gowns, Schiaparelli presented only a couple of tight dresses. Instead, the focus in this collection is on ample tailoring and fluid fabrics, with a particular emphasis on wide-legged pants. The waists are typically worn high, sometimes even just above the chest. The fashion house's signature design codes are well represented, as seen in the wide and prominent shoulders in a number of looks. The prints are abstract, with loads of flashy colors (green, red, orange), a few darker shades (midnight blue, brown, pastel blue, black, white) and shimmery accents.

One Man's Trash, Another Man's Fashion Brand : NPR

Esben Rahbek Gjerdrum Pedersen, director of the Center for Corporate Social Responsibility at the Copenhagen Business School, says that most consumers look first at quality, price and convenience, where ECOALF has to compete to be mainstream. "Then sustainability can be an important differentiator," he says. Staying fresh in the fast-paced world of fashion is also an expensive challenge. "It's difficult to be innovating all the time. A fabric you used last season will probably not be useful the next," says Goyeneche, adding that his company spends up to 17 percent of its income on research and development, a factor keeping prices high. But back to his fishing net fashion: Some 3,000 Spanish trawl fishermen plan to provide the company with trash from nets instead of throwing it back so the company can recycle the plastics from bottles and bags and turn them into string. Goyeneche's biggest dream is to turn one of the huge Pacific Ocean trash vortexes into fashionable backpacks and minimalist coats.

Shoppers Hit Fashion Fair Mall For Last Minute Gifts - YCV

(Joint London) Wednesday, December 24, 2014 05:02PM Recognizing that Santa has been wearing the same winter wear that he's had on since the mid-19th century, creators over at the Joint London ad agency decided to playfully modernize Father Christmas in present-day apparel from a few high-end fashion designers. Take a look. The average person probably hasn't heard of any of these designers, but then again the average person probably doesn't spend over $800 on a sweater, or over $1,100 on a winter coat, or even $900 on a pair of sneakers. According to Smithsonian , the first well-known American depictions of Santa Claus emerged around the 1860s with political cartoons by Thomas Nast. In the following decades, department stores and food & beverage companies adapted Santa's image into their advertising, slowly crafting out the widely recognized white-bearded, rotund man in a fur-trimmed red uniform. Since Coca-Cola's ad campaign of the 1930s, which is credited as cementing the modern depiction of Santa worldwide, Old Saint Nick hasn't had much of a fashion upgrade. On the Tumblr page , if you "pay with a tweet," you can get all the designer Santas to use as Christmas cards -- for free!

Car crashes into New York fashion store, seven hurt - Yahoo News

The vehicle ran into the Forever 21 store in Manhattan's Herald Square around 10 p.m., the New York Fire Department said, adding that seven people were taken to a nearby hospital, one with minor injuries and six in serious condition. Television news station CBS New York broadcast footage of the smashed Ford Mustang beside a shattered window of the apparel retailer. The car ran into several other vehicles and hit pedestrians before crashing into the building, the broadcaster said. "She must have freaked out," a witness, Matty Thomas, told CBS New York, describing the driver of the car. "She backed up, took off, went around on the other side of the street, went through the intersection, skidded out, fishtailed, then fishtailed again the other way and smacked into all the cars waiting at the light on that side of the street." Police, reached by telephone, declined to give details of the incident, or to say if the driver would face charges.

But Kendall, who has quickly become successful in the fashion industry for you know, whatever reason, told Dazed that no one hates her because she is rich and beautiful.

A team that was supposed to be meh ends up being good. Were talking about Jim Benning in Vancouver, the man with the golden touch, the guy who has done everything right so far in his first year with the Vancouver Canucks -- the team with the unexpectedly second-best point total in the Pacific Division. From Canucks Hockey Blog albeit a couple of weeks ago, but it still holds true: Personally speaking, as a full-fledged Canucks fan since the West Coast Express era, its the first time I can recall there ever being so many new additions to the team being such more.. vital parts to the team so early on in the season. Its a strange and wondrous feeling, and I feel like this week I should be talking about another new addition to team, albeit in a different fashion Mr. Jim Benning, ladies and gentlemen. The Canucks management and coaching staff and ownership group for that matter never seemed on the same page with Mike Gillis as general manager and Alain Vigneault as coach during their tenure together, and certainly not with John Tortorella as coach as Vancouver missed the postseason a year ago. In fact, by the end, Gillis seemed like a guy who was flailing to try to find the right moves especially with his goaltender conundrum involving Roberto Luongo s contract. Bennings hiring of Willie Desjardins was a master stroke.

How the Victorians dressed for death - CNN.com

Whereas men were largely allowed to get on with their lives, for women, mourning was a job in itself. A widow could be expected to visually grieve for more than two years (although the loss of a child or parents only required one.) The most prominent part of this display was mourning dress, which was meant to be a visible manifestation of grief. A 1863 diary entry from a Tennessee teenager named Nannie Haskins, which will be projected at the exhibition, makes the correlation plain: "What do I care whether it becomes me or not? I don't wear black because it becomes me. ...

Bayern substitute Claudio Pizarro missed a great chance to win it deep in injury time. "We had opportunities to win but Borussia also had chances to go ahead. So we can live with the draw," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said. "It's not easy to come through at this stadium and in this atmosphere." Guardiola was shrugged off by fourth official Bibiana Steinhaus when he put his hand on her shoulder to complain in injury time. The Spaniard said he told her more time should be played due to an injury to Moenchengladbach midfielder Granit Xhaka. Naldo scored one and set up another in Wolfsburg's convincing win earlier. The Brazilian defender got the home side off the mark in the 15th with a powerful header from Marcel Schaefer's corner, and set up Wolfsburg's second in similar fashion in the 69th, when Ivan Perisic got the final touch.

While mistakes in the boys' results were being corrected, the official computer posting for the girls was held up for two hours. The scene played out like an election-night drama. Girls from Billerica and Dracut waited to see which program had just won the conference meet for the first time. When the computer printout finally came forth, it was Billerica.

And in doing so, theyve managed to blur the line between fashion and interior architecture. Judging by the visual diversity between the rooms, students have obviously been given an almost anything goes creative mandate. This has resulted in wildly conceptual designs that range from a cluster of eyes plastered on the wall to what looks like the set of the Marie Antoinette film. It is definitely worth mentioning that whichever room you choose, remember that this is not a hotel for the visually fainthearted guests should be prepared for an avant-garde experience because none of the rooms could possibly fall under the vanilla category. The rooms are rated 1 to 5 stars depending on comfort, size and location (rather than design style) and the hotel comes complete with its own all-day restaurant called STOCK as well as OPTIONS! its design centric department store, which reminds us of a well-curated museum gift shop.

Youth earn ribbons at Butler County 4-H Fashion Review - News - Butler County Times Gazette - El Dorado, KS

You should do the same. Dalton Sorry to be a cop-out, but I view this as "properly" valued. Yes, Gronkowski is a huge injury risk and who knows how compromised he'll be returning from major knee surgery. But if not for health issues, he'd be worthy of a top-10 pick. Gronkowski just turned 25 years old, plays for the Patriots and has scored 42 touchdowns over 50 career regular season games. He's a beast in which I'm willing to pay for the upside. Brad UNDERVALUED. Similar to Graham, Gronk, when healthy, is essentially an elite WR1 who happens to qualify at TE.

Can Marimekko Go From Cult Design Brand To Fashion Empire? | Co.design | Business + Design

This means she can almost, if not completely, start from scratch. (Those famous prints will find their way in somehow.) She also has the support of Ihamuotila, who possesses the same sort of inner confidence that great merchants do: he believes that good product, against all odds, will win out. Its her job to create it, and read this his job to message it. But Ihamuotila still has plenty of challenges ahead. The company generated 94 million Euros in sales in 2013, up 6% from 88.5 million in 2012 and 21% from 77.4 million in 2011. But it lost a lot of money in 13--profit loss before taxes was 804,000 Euros (and equalled about a million Euros after taxes)--mostly due to increased expansion efforts, like write-downs on the company-owned stores in Beverly Hills, Boston, and Oslo, which totaled 1.5 million Euros.

Pink, Kate Hudson, Jared Leto make Armani couture a celebrity circus, as Chanel targets Asia | Star Tribune

On the front row, a shimmying Kate Hudson mingled with Jared Leto, Sophia Loren pouted sultrily, Pink tapped her foot and Juliette Binoche caught up with fellow actress Chloe Grace Moretz. Ushers even had to link arms in a human wall when the show ended to protect the myriad stars from the masses and deliver them to the safety of backstage. It's not often that Karl Lagerfeld is outdone in the Hollywood stakes but his front-row shows that he's focusing his attention on couture-hungry Asia. Here are the highlights from Day 3 of the haute couture fall-winter 2014-15 collections, with show reports for Giorgio Armani Prive, Chanel, Stephane Rolland and Bouchra Jarrar. ARMANI PRIVE PLAYS WITH DOTS Overlays through a palette of red, white and black defined Armani's fall-winter aesthetic. And the result was a rare intellectual show from the Italian master of safe classicism. Quilted-effect ruffled capes mixed with (rather unseasonal) shorts alongside curved-shouldered pant suits with exaggerated tubular sleeves.

Misandry: Feminists Pretend To Hate Men And It?s Not Funny - Time

I dont need femisimi because wondering if Im going to be attacked just walking home really gets my blood racing it is like free drugs!!!!! WomanAgainstFeminism (@NoToFeminism) August 09, 2014 But inherent in this word misandry is hatred. And inherent in phrases like ban men and male tears are cruelty and violence. If a man wore a tee shirt that said misogynist, even if he were a dyed-in-the-wool feminist, wearing it tongue-in-cheek, it would not be funny. It would be misguided. What feminists really hate is the patriarchythe web of institutions that systemically oppress women. And to tear it down, we need as many allies as we can get. Telling half the population that we hate them, even in jest, is not the way to do that.

Secret Luxury Spots In The Bohemian Beach Paradise Of Tulum, Mexico - Forbes

As my driver pulled off the weather worn roadway, a tall thatched structure loomed from the jungle trees, a tropical vision from the pages of Swiss Family Robinson. A mangrove jungle rising before the resort opening up to a sheer white limestone sandy beachfront fronting Soliman Bay revealing the refreshing Jashita Hotel . Outside the aroma of fresh flowers and fragrance woke me from my cranky stupor and I took a deep breath entering the open air lobby. I was told with a smile that my room was upgraded to the Nefertiti Suite and my weary spirit was immediately lifted. You would be hard pressed not to immediately fall in love with this place as I entered the gorgeous lobby straight out of a design magazine and with margarita in hand quickly melted into the atmosphere. Happy Hour at Jashita Hotel (photo credit Jim Dobson) The understated but certainly luxurious boutique hotel is a far cry from what I had anticipated. The owners, the Marchiorello family from Verona, Italy built the resort in 2010 after falling in love with the tranquil bay protected by a coral reef.Enrico Marchiorelloshandsome son Tommaso manages the hotel and is a frequent companion to the guests, whether its taking the private fishing boat out and cooking fresh fish or becoming a lifelong friend to many of the returning fans of the hotel. His compassion towards making the guests feel at home contribute to the experience of modern luxury such as crisp linen sheets, flat screen televisions and perfect air conditioning. The Nefertiti Suite is just one of the beautiful rooms overlooking the water with massive terraces created for lounging on hammocks or viewing the spectacular jungle biosphere on one side or the glassy calm waters on the other.

South Africa to combat poaching by moving Kruger rhinos - Yahoo News

We are looking to numbers of up to 500," Environment Minister Edna Molewa told Reuters. "We must start soon." Kruger rangers move some rhinos every year, with park mephisto shoes management using the proceeds from sales to private reserves to help fund conservation efforts. A record 250 rhinos were moved in 2009 but the scale of the poaching problem had forced it to take a more drastic approach, Hofmeyr said. The focus of the operation will be on Kruger's eastern border with Mozambique, one of the world's poorest countries, where poachers from impoverished communities are lured by the promise of quick money. Botswana in particular may be an ideal base for the relocated rhinos because it has vast areas of sparsely populated and inaccessible wilderness. South Africa is the epicentre of a surge in poaching over the last few years because it is home to the vast majority of the world's population - 18,000 white rhinos and 3,000 black rhinos. More than 1,000 were poached last year, three times the tally in 2010, to meet soaring demand for rhino horn, coveted as an ingredient in traditional medicine in fast-growing economies such as China and Vietnam.

GEOPOLITICS: After taking a jab at the West with last week's ban on food imports, Russia called an end to military exercises near Ukraine and withdrew troops to their bases.

Steampunk Comes To Lockport | Mysuburbanlife.com

She said it can also be described as having a Victorian sci-fi vibe. Streit, who also is the wife of Lockport Mayor Steven Streit, led a committee of local community leaders to organize the Summer Art Series, which began on June 14 and will end Aug. 17. Over the past weekend, the art series included a gala celebration that invited visitors to come dressed in steampunk fashion and enjoy live entertainment from musicians such as Frenchy & the Punk and Vourteque. The powers that be wanted to throw a costume party, said John Lustig, committee member and Illinois State Museum Lockport Gallery director. The steampunk style seemed suited to Lockport because it is a city that went through extraordinary change with the I & M Canal and local industries, he said. Lustig said the committee wanted to find a way to expand the citys footprint outside the normal walls and steampunk seemed like the way to go. What we found was there is a ton of not only interest in the concept but in the fashion and the art, he said. The style is playful and eclectic. For Lustig, it can on the one hand feel like Doctor Who and on other hand like Burning Man. Steampunk borrows from so many pieces of art and artistic movements that people can make it their own thing, he said. You can put your own spin on it and it gives you that power to be imaginative and creative, Streit said. Lustig said he was working on a costume himself for the gala, which may be a long peacoat with goggles, as the later is a heavy motif in steampunk.

1 Ivana Martini Theres a reason my chum Gloxinia Bugg still has her fortune while the rest of her family has frittered it away shes incredibly cheap. Why pay for therapy when you can just find out where psychologists vacation in the summer and chattily mingle? Gloxie reasoned. And so off she went to an idyllic spot, insinuating herself into a brainy-looking bunch, turning many encounters into word-association exercises. She was soon asked to leave. I knew something was wrong when one person said, stripes will be big and I said, zebras, and the table went silent. Then they said, damask and I said, Thanksgiving. It turns out she crashed a fashion forecasting retreat, though she is putting the experience to good use.
