22, 2015, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. (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.

While more of them are appearing in ad campaigns, red carpets and even the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition , experts say plus-sized women are still viewed as having negative perceptions about their bodies. "Culturally they've been made to feel like they shouldn't splurge on themselves because all they need to do is lose that 20 pounds and then 'Aren't you going to wish that you'd waited until you bought that?'" New York Times style editor Katherine Rosman said. But at photo shoots for Plus Model Magazine, the opposite is true. There, the model celebrates her size without holding back. Editor Madeline Jones said the online publication is popular because it addresses what everyone else is ignoring. "Everyone is kind of shying away from the term 'plus-size.' Plus-size models do not want to be called plus-size. Plus-size brands do not want to be called plus-size.

Plus-size High-fashion Designer Finds Retailers Still Hesitant - Cbs News

"CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King joins CBSN with more on how it... Before her brand got http://www.chicemma.com/ on the scene, she said marketers would use words like "slimming," and "lose 10pounds with this dress." "And I didn't want that. I wanted to be sexy and curvaceous. 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.

When chemistry meets couture: Clothes that change color with the climate - CNN.com

A bejeweled headdress, created with Swarovski's gemstones division , changes color based on the heat generated by the wearer's neural activity, thanks to hyper-conductive stones and heat-sensitive ink. The three sculptural leather jackets are infused with dye formulas that change color in response to different stimuli: friction, the temperature and humidity of the room, and intense heat. In its own room is a fragile ceramic dress called Eighthsense, covered with hand-painted pixels that reflect brain activity detected by an accompanying EEG headset. This was the public's formal introduction to The Unseen , a trio of London fashion designers using chemistry, digital technology and exquisite tailoring to create fashion magic. Creating wearable magic Last October, The Unseen's designers -- founder Lauren Bowker, Christa Leask and Jess Smith -- moved base from a cluttered studio in the vaults under Somerset House to a room in the building's new wing.

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

Haute couture fashion week: Schiaparelli - Yahoo News

The waists are typically worn women s shoes 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 of the most remarkable pieces was a blue pantsuit decorated with mirrors. But the real showstopper was Schiaparelli's eccentric wedding gown: a trench-style mini-dress in glittery gold fabric, complete with a long train in the same material.

Dutch Fashion Designer Frans Molenaar Dies At Age 74 - Yahoo News

Molenaar's design house says he died in an Amsterdam hospital on Friday following a fall at his home Dec. 22.

As well as designing high fashion, including a wedding dress for the bride of Dutch King Willem Alexander's cousin Prince Bernhard, Molenaar also embraced commercial projects such as creating clothing for garbage men and street cleaners in The Hague in the late 1960s and recently designing a walking frame. Molenaar's funeral is scheduled for Thursday in Amsterdam.

Among the well-dressed: Amal Clooney, whose sleek black Dior Haute Couture dress and elbow-length white gloves begged the question: George who?; Diane Kruger in a fit-and-flare silver Emilia Wickstead confection; and Viola Davis in a red Donna Karan Atelier strapless gown with a sequined bodice. Following on the crimson path, Allison Williams was um, I cant decide. in sparkling strapless red Armani Prive. The gown is either a thing of wonder or a giant, fabric Christmas ornament. Lupita Nyongo, usually fashion-flawless, wore a violet and white Giambattista Valli gown that overpowered her small frame. The fashion fails were, of course, the most interesting part of the red carpet.

She has developed several step-in coats with hidden harnesses that help pets get dressed without the hassle. Dogs walk right into the coat, so they don't have to put their heads through it. Her pieces are among the many that feature a pouch or pocket to hold unused bags for scooping up pet poop. Ng's "city chic" styles, which sell online and at boutiques for $60 to $65, aim to reduce aggravation for pets, but she warns: "Never make a dog wear clothing if it doesn't want to." On the other hand, you might want to start dressing your cat now, Darr said. She predicted huge growth in feline fashions as retailers from 99-cent stores to high-scale boutiques carry more cat clothing. "I am seeing more pieces that are tailored for cats.

Giant Bomb's 2014 Game of the Year Awards: Day Two Text Recap - Yahoo News

For Javier Goyeneche, a 44-year-old Spanish entrepreneur, it happens to involve trash discarded tires, leftover coffee grounds, even old fishing nets from the sea. He's not just recycling them; he's using them to make a fashion statement. Goyeneche is challenging the world of sustainable fashion with ECOALF, a Madrid-based brand that's exploring new ground in scooping up the detritus of the industrial world and converting it into something people will pay good money for gold evening shoes backpacks, coats and swimwear. The company named after Goyeneche's first son, Alfredo was only a concept five years ago, but today, two years after its first line hit the stores, the brand has had an early boost from limited-edition products for some high-profile partners and friends, like Apple , Barneys and the queen of eco-friendly high living, Gwyneth Paltrow . Recently, the company has worked with Will.i.am to develop the first line of outdoor accessories for his new company, Ekocycle, which, in partnership with Coca-Cola, aims to give plastic bottles a second life. Speaking quickly as he paces about his office a large, white, minimalist space that serves as shop, showroom and headquarters Goyeneche contends that junk really can be made into some beautiful fabrics.

Pet clothing digs into function and fashion - The Denver Post

Of course, the eventual list ended up included a pair of platforms that hadn't even been announced yet, and minds raced. The trailers got picked apart as people tried to figure out what, exactly, the new platforms would be capable of. Watch_Dogs ended up becoming a symbol for all things new, a new piece of intellectual property that, hopefully, would help usher in a new era. Flash forward past a delay into 2014 and, well, when Watch_Dogs was finally released, players found a new game that called upon too many different facets of the Ubisoft open-world template. With action that often felt clunky, mission design that got pretty repetitive, and a hacking motif that sounded a lot cooler before the game was released, Watch_Dogs was a real disappointment. At least it worked?

"The things I look out for when looking at clothes are so crazily specific now that it really was a very natural thing to start conceptualizing my own line." Neelys influences for the line run the gamut, from Japanese fashion magazines to "scruffy French actresses," she says, as well as her own native Southern California. "L.A. gets such a bad rap for basically not even caring about fashion but that's completely not my perspective. I love the laid back feeling, the emphasis on dressing down just makes it moreimportant to really have that perfect t-shirt or pajama-ish short.I've lived in a fewdifferent parts of California and they've really all had a part in influencing my normal." Personal favorites from the line include the Kaede shorts ($280), the Zillah slipdress ($300) just cause it's hot, and the Ceven tank ("It's the easiest thing to just throw on and I love the low-cut sides," the blogger notes of the $90 piece).

She was the first black model to appear on the cover of American Vogue in 1974, a cover that broke down barriers in the modeling industry. Johnson has also written a book, acted and appeared in reality TV programs. Johnson discussed the alleged encounter in an interview with ABC News after penning a first-person essay for Vanity Fair. She says she was invited to meet Cosby for a possible part on The Cosby Show, first at the studio, then at Cosbys brownstone.

By Merle Ginsberg 5 hours ago Content preferences Done It was a rumor that swept Europe this summer, but now Page Six is reporting that Gucci's top couple, CEO Patrizio di Marco and creative director Frida Giannini, who have a daughter together ,will exit their posts imminently. The Post also reports sales at the global brand have been stagnant, and Michele Sofisti, the CEO of Gucci's watches and jewelry division, left the company last week. In October, Gucci posted its weakest quarterly growth in four years, withoverexpansion in China being pointed to as one reason. Rumors abounded in Europe about this over the past summer, with names being floated as possible new Gucci creative directors. One name heard often and loudly was Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci, who has been considered one of fashion's top talents for years and, we hear, has been at least approached for the position. Earlier this week, Tisci announced Julia Roberts as Givenchy's new face. Gucci hasn't yet responded to requests for comment.

Newest Condé fashion mag goes out of ?Style? | New York Post

Hugo Boss said late on Thursday that Permira, the group's largest shareholder, had started placing a 7 percent stake via an accelerated bookbuilding procedure. A person familiar with the transaction said that UBS (UBSN.S) was running the placement, seeking buyers at a price of 102 euros per share, which would make it a 500 million euro (394.31 million pounds) deal. That compares with a closing price earlier on Thursday of 105.45 euros. The investment bank declined to comment. A source familiar with the matter told Reuters in September, shortly after Permira sold an 11 percent stake in Hugo Boss, that the buyout firm would hive off more shares in the fashion company. Permira agreed to a three-month lockup period for its remaining shares, Hugo Boss said in its statement. Permira spent 5.3 billion euros on a controlling stake in Hugo Boss in 2007, installing Claus-Dietrich Lahrs as chief executive, who has overseen the Hugo Boss stock quadruple in value since then.

Fashion FYI: Handbag designer Falchi stops at Larrimor's | TribLIVE

A spokeswoman for Style.com confirmed the news that the magazine portion was suspending publication. Since the relaunch in early September, the site continues to exceed growth expectations, she said. To continue that momentum, weve made the decision to focus 100% of our efforts on our core digital business. Dirk Standen, the editor-in-chief of Style.com, was recently made to report to Vogue EIC Anna Wintour, according to a report in WWD on Thursday. And Style.com publisher Matt Rice, who once reported to Conde Nast president Bob Sauerberg, is now reporting to Vogue publisher Susan Plagemann, WWD said. Standen and Rice could not be reached for comment. Sources tell Media Ink that it was a decision by Wintour, who is artistic director for all Conde titles, to pull the plug on the magazine because she felt it replicated a lot of what the flagship was doing.

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.

Vladimir Putin's Tiger Causes Mayhem In China - Yahoo News

It isn't surprising that the tigers have had these encounters on the Chinese side of the border. Unlike Russia's sparse Amur region, which has fewer than a million people, China's Heilongjiang Province has a population in excess of 38 million, raising the disturbing possibility that Ustin and Kuzya may have an unfortunate run-in with humans. In order to avoid this, a wildlife expert quoted by Xinhua warned people not to throw things at the tiger. Common sense, surebut bear in mind that throwing things at powerful animals is a documented problem in China. Nevertheless, Ustin's brutal goat murder is unlikely to cause a diplomatic incident between China and Russia, who are now getting along better than ever. Earlier this year the two agreed on a 30-year, $400 billion natural gas deal, and they frequently find common cause on the United Nations Security Council. And following the tigers' incursion into Chinese territory, Beijing has reassured Moscow by taking measures to protect them from the possibility of poaching.

Black Friday Shopping Invades the U.K.

Fashion is one of Amazon's fastest-growing businesses in Europe, according to Sergio Bucher, vice-president of Amazon Fashion EU. "The creation of this new studio illustrates both our ambitions in this area and our dedication to providing a first class customer experience," he said in a statement. It comes after Amazon opened a 40,000 square foot imaging studio in Brooklyn, New York in 2013.

Asos 'doesn't tick Amazon's boxes' for buyout: Pro

Steve Mader, retail insights director at Kantar Retail, says Asos is not the right company for Amazon to consider acquiring as the U.S. e-commerce giant has expertise in that area already.

Anusha Couttigane, fashion consultant at retail analysts Conlumino, said opening a photography studio was "curious move" for Amazon, "as it is quite a sizable investment in what is already a highly penetrated market". Major players in Europe's online fashion market include Asos , Net-a-Porter and Zalando Europe's largest online fashion retailer which debuted on the Frankfurt stock exchange in October.

Berlin-based Zalando, which listed on the Frankfurt stock exchange last month, started out selling shoes in 2008 and now ships 1,500 brands to customers in 15 European countries, with Britain's Top Shop one of its latest big-name additions. "Many customers in Europe still don't have access to the Gap brand," Zalando co-founder David Schneider told Reuters. "We offer a platform to enter 15 markets in local languages, in local currency, with free shipments, returns and so on." Gap, which runs more than 3,500 stores worldwide, is trying to reduce its dependence on the highly competitive North American market and plans to open 40 stores in India at the same time as it strengthens in e-commerce. Digital business head Art Peck is due to take over as chief executive next February after his division's sales grew 21 percent in the 2013 financial year to $2.3 billion, 6 percent of total sales. Gap's bigger European rivals Inditex and H&M are also investing in e-commerce but are focusing on their own sites and are not listed on Zalando. "We have to be where are customers are.

"But I was not fit enough and struggled after that, credit to Valentino who raced well. I just couldn't do anything else to keep up with him." Pedrosa, who won the Malaysian Grand Prix in the last two years, fell behind early on after crashing out while trying to challenge Lorenzo.

But it never seemed to work out -- anyone remember David Duval? But if Nike execs were concerned that McIlroy's deal would be another dud, those worries are gone. McIlroy just needs to win the Masters next spring to complete a career grand slam, winning each of the sport's four majors.

"Everybody loves fashion," Ringgold said. "When you feel good inside, you reflect that externally." Yet, although Ringgold was not a designer, she had a unique style that stood out to the crowd.

Nike's $200 million bet on McIlroy finally pays off - Aug. 12, 2014

Now the 25 year old Irishman is ranked as the world's best golfer. He's only the fourth golfer to win four major tournaments by age 25, joining Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Bobby Jones, the sport's three greatest. "The timing couldn't be more perfect for Nike," said Bob Dorfman, an endorsement expert who publishes the Sports Marketers Scouting Report. "It looks virtual hairstyles like Tiger won't regain his form. Rory is the best golfer out there right now and Nike is famous for latching onto the best player in every sport." Nike ( NKE )'s 2001 deal with Woods launched its line of golf balls, equipment and apparel, which quickly became a $600 million a year business. Related: Three reasons golf is in the rough But growth for Nike Golf has been slow since 2009, which is when Woods ran into trouble both on and off the green. Sales are growing at about 4% a year -- about half the pace of the company's overall growth.

Comic-Con: Waid, Quesada, Slott on Marvel?s 75th, Daredevil?s 50th | Hero Complex ? movies, comics, pop culture ? Los Angeles Times

Quesada said a condition he insisted on was that the deal include Daredevil. The Quesada-drawn Guadian Devil arc in 1998, written by filmmaker Kevin Smith, revived the Man Without Fears fortunes, and led to a string of talented storytellers handling the hero: David Mack, the team of Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev, and Ed Brubaker. In 50 years, I dont know that Marvel has had a more consistently well-drawn, well-written comic, Waid said. And these days, that tradition is in the hands of him and artist Chris Samnee, who has also won an Eisner Award for his work on Daredevil. Their run has recently found Matt admitting in court that he is the costumed hero (even after wearing a shirt that read, Im not Daredevil), being disbarred in New York, and moving to San Francisco, where hed practiced law once before. This Chris Samnee illustration of Daredevil teased the Daredevil: Road Warrior digital comic that bridged the end of one print volume and the start of the current one, all written by Mark Waid. (Marvel) Waid plans for the team to hold onto Daredevil for a while: Chris and I have both been very blatant that theyre going to have to pull that book out of our cold, dead hands, he said.

Chanel recalls Le Corbusier in glittering, snow-white and red collection - Yahoo News

Fields made the comment Tuesday night at a kickoff to todays Trend Conference in Dearborn devoted to exploring big ideas and issues in the auto industry. Fields brought along celebrities in the fields of fashion and innovative thinking: American designer Kenneth Cole and innovator and author Clayton Christensen. Cole, who started in the shoe business, noted that shoes as a means of transportation predates Henry Ford and have fewer recalls. Today, there is not a woman in the U.S. who needs another pair of black shoes, Cole told a captive audience, but it is his job to convince them. To do that, he said he has had to adjust his thinking in sync with todays social media trends. Cole said he used to think he was in control of a brand he tried to impose on people.

Chanel is spiky and modern at Paris fashion - Yahoo News

View photo German designer Karl Lagerfeld (L) and model Ashleigh Good appear at the end of his Haute Couture Fall/Winter By Alexandria Sage PARIS (Reuters) - Fashion designers and architects are very different animals, but their eye for form and sculpture is the same, which may be why Karl Lagerfeld drew influence from the pioneering architect Le Corbusier for Chanel's Fall/Winter 2014-2015 collection presented on Tuesday. Of course, being the curious, creative and fearless designer that he is - and the collection being haute couture - he planted Le Corbusier, who died in 1965, at the 18th century court of Versailles for maximum glitter and opulence. "It's like modern sculpture, in modern materials, but with baroque elements," Lagerfeld said backstage after his show held at the Grand Palais in Paris. "This is the story of Le Corbusier going to Versailles." Were the sparkling panels adorning the fronts of ivory-colored jackets a nod to the architect's famous Villa Savoye on the outskirts of Paris, with its long panels of windows? Did the nubby plaids with their repeating patterns of black, orange and red recall the stacked residential housing promoted by the urban planner, whose real name was Charles-Edouard Jenneret, in his search for utopian city design?

The headless models porny vibe says it all: Any man who spritzes this potiondeservesunfettered access to breasts that are oiled like a dipstick.Too bad this plasticky ad loses so much of its luster when a dudes hairy chest takes the starring role. The red mani is still a nice touch. American Apparel ad, 2010 Unlike other A.A. ads that featured Charney in bed with models (with a choice cocaine reference) or having his crotch licked , this one doesnt see page demand a Silkwood shower after viewing. But the product here is also inexplicably marketed to women. As the ladies among us know, when youre this close to naked, who needs a pair of nylons to seal the deal? Then you realize, oh, right, its not really for the female consumer.

Giuliana Rancic dishes out the fashion hits and misses at Emmys - I4U News

About that Rancic said "It breaks my heart because she loved the dress she said she felt like a princess (in it). I saw her and I was like Oh my gosh. It was outrageous. Everyone was staring at it like, what?" And she also added that she can confidently say that anything else from Dunham would be "a sellout." "She hams it up a little and she knows people are gonna talk about it the next day. But at the same time I don't expect anything less of her. I think if she came in something super sophisticated and boring, to me, it would feel like a sellout. I like that she stays quirky and true to who she is. Another person we need to mention here is Maria Menuonos and it is very likely that she would soon join Rancic on E!

Geek Picnic Presents The Future Of Fashion. Russian fashion designers have found a way to get around a controversial ban of lace underwear by 3D printing it. The Russian parliament banned all underwear made of synthetic lace earlier this summer, preventing the production and sale of the undergarments in the country. Russian designer Viktoria Anoka got around the ban by hiring a Moscow company, 3DPrintus, to 3D print a pair of lace panties for the company Lascana, which presented them at the St. Petersburg technology fair, Geek Picnic 2014. The panties, which were the first underwear 3D printed in Russia, was the craziest thing we have been asked to print, 3DPrintus CEO, Konstantin Ivanov, told The Moscow Times . But the Russians arent the only ones 3D printing clothing, according to 3DPrint.com . 3D printing fashion designers from around the world showed up to present their futuristic designs in the 3D Print Fashion Show. One of the fashion shows headliners was American artist Joshua Harker, considered to be a pioneer in 3D printing in art and culture.
