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

Plus-size high-fashion designer finds retailers still hesitant - CBS News

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. She shrugged off the natural hair haters with one dramatic shake of her voluminous, wavy tresses, captured in a GIF that's been retweeted nearly 20,000 times. Knowles' digital flip of the hair (subbing, perhaps, for her middle finger) came in response to Fashion Police remarks that Zendaya's hair on the Oscar red carpet Sunday night must have smelled like "patchouli oil" or "weed." Zendaya later posted to Instagram that she thought the comments were "not only a large stereotype but outrageously offensive." Zendaya accepted Rancic's apology in a tweet Wednesday morning, writing: "Body shaming and other hurtful tactics will never get the job done." She ended with a quote from Martin Luther King Jr.: "Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that."

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. In the meantime, you want our plus-size dollars, but you don't want to be called plus-size. That's a problem," Jones said. Jones said that problem is why high-end fashion designers have been hesitant to create plus-size lines.

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

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. When you enter, the one-off color-changing showpieces that have made them the darlings of the smart materials world immediately draw your attention, but there are other items on display too: color-changing trinkets -- candles, Moleskine notebooks and the like -- from their new product line. They may be known for their fashion output, but the designers are eager to expand beyond the label. "For me, it's more of an exploration house," says Bowker.

Fashion speaks at Deafilicious | FOX2now.com

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.

Fashion Photographer Uses Toy Camera in Fashion Shoot | Digital Trends

Because photography isnt just about what you use, its how you use it, and that is what fashion photographer Lara Jade did in Hong Kong as part of DigitalRev TVs Cheap Camera Challenge. During a six-hour layover in Hong Kong, Jade, a New York City-based photographer who shoots for global clients, was challenged to capturecouture fashion models with the An Pan Man (, for those who read Japanese) 0.3-megapixel camera, a toy camera based off of a cartoon character with a bread bun for a head; it is the kind of thing you mightfind for cheapat a Toys R Us in Asia. She was allowed to dress up the models with expensive clothes and makeup, and came up with ninephotos of three different looks within the short amount of time in Hong Kong.She did use AlienSkin Exposure 7 to process the tones of the photos, so what you see is not just the work of the camera. In two of the photos she shot through a drinking glass for a mild warping effect. DigitalRev Jadesthoughts on using the An Pan Man? Never trust cameras that need AA batteries, and she disliked the tiny viewfinder [as well as] the fact that it wanted to compliment the models in Japanese before it even took the shot. The shutter had about black girl hairstyles a three-second lag after pushing the button (in order to compliment the subject first, of course.) Her strategy composed of making what was outside of the camera as good as possible, [relying] on the team and model to inspire me throughout the shoot. She focused on making the model striking against the background, whether by compliment or contrast. Jadesfinal thoughts werethat shehad a great time, great experience, it took me back to my roots as a photographer, and also reminded me what it is to take a great image.

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.

So what's so special about ECOALF? While most recycled fabrics commercialized today contain 15 or 20 percent recycled materials, Goyeneche's clothes use 80 to 100 percent. Of all the materials he uses, the most interesting have got to be old fishing nets. For Goyeneche, they're a fashion treasure because they're often more than a mile long, and made of high-quality nylon that fishermen need to change out every two to three years. Now instead of being dumped into the ocean, the nets are collected by ECOALF; for every half pound of fishing nets collected, the brand produces roughly a yard of fabric.

Fashion Rumor Of The Day: A Big Shake-up At Gucci? - Yahoo News

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.

Hugo Boss Targets Faster Sales Growth, Better Margins - Yahoo Finance

Boss said womenswear should grow at double-digit annual rates to account for 15 percent of sales by 2020. It hopes retail sales will account for more than three-quarters of the total by 2020 from just over half now. Hugo Boss said it would aim for average sales growth in the high-single digits in the coming years, something the firm said recently it would have trouble achieving in 2014. It reiterated a target to increase its operating margin to 25 percent from 23.2 percent in 2013. Chief Financial Officer Mark Langer said that achieving a previous target for 2015 sales to reach 3 billion euros (2 billion pounds) would be difficult, but said he would give more precise goals for next year in March.

Kyle Naughton drew a penalty just 6 minutes into the game when he got cleaned out by AEL goalkeeper Karim Fegrouche, who injured himself on the play and had to leave the game. Unfortunately, Harry Kane wasn't able to convert from the penalty spot, but he'd go on to redeem himself. Just before halftime, Kane put Spurs up on the night by finishing off a nice quick move, with Mousa Dembele providing the assist. AEL's defense was in shambles by the time the ball got to Kane, and he placed a perfect first-time finish into the back of the net from the edge of the box. Paulinho scored just four minutes into the second half. Dembele made an excellent tackle to win the ball back, Vlad Chiriches , of all people, provided the assist and Paulinho's composed finish was exactly what Spurs were hoping to see a lot of when they spent 17m on him last summer.

The alleged solution achieved by the aforementioned economists, and it was one that mostly favored drivers, reads as primitive now despite it being relatively new. Specifically, a passenger who paid for services rendered and who tipped the driver well, or who at least provided a fair tip, would be handed an orange flag attached to a short wooden pole by the driver; the idea being that the passenger could hoist the flag while hailing his next taxi. Seeing the flag, formerly information-deficient taxi drivers would pick the flag-bearing passenger up with greater certainty when it came to achieving a remunerative transaction. And then assuming the passenger were to stiff the subsequent taxi driver, this same passenger would not be given a flag such that hailing the next cab would prove more difficult.

White Sox 11, Blue Jays 5 - Yahoo Sports

In the White Sox's previous six games, they'd hit just .206 with six home runs and 13 runs scored. They went 2-6 in those games and averaged only 1.6 runs per game. They eclipsed that mark before making their first out of the game against the Blue Jays (64-59), who've now dropped four straight games and 10 of their past 13. Hector Noesi (7-8), who threw 100 pitches, started for the White Sox and picked up the win. Aided by all the run support, he won for the fourth time in his past six starts by going five innings and allowing five runs and eight hits. The first five hitters in Chicago's lineup each finished with multi-hit games, led by rookie first baseman Jose Abreu (3-for-5, three RBIs), designated hitter Adam Dunn (3-for-5, two RBIs) and right fielder Dayan Viciedo (2-for-3, two RBIs). Leadoff hitter Alejandro De Aza went 2-for-4 and scored two runs while filling in for usual leadoff hitter Adam Eaton -- who's on the 15-day disabled list with an oblique injury.

Joe Strummer's car up for auction - CNN.com

"If that Ramones record hadn't existed, I don't know if we could have built a scene here," the Clash's Joe Strummer once said. Their rise was slower, but no less influential, in their home country. Equal parts provocateurs, fashion victims and three-chord howlers, the Sex Pistols kicked off their meteoric rise with their angry "Anarchy in the UK" and a number of controversial media appearances. The band made just one studio album, but its echoes still reverberate. The name could be taken literally: Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Terry Chimes (and later Topper Headon) really did have disparate musical tastes. But they shared a fire fueled by politics and music. It made for five terrific studio albums, highlighted by songs such as "White Riot," "London Calling" and "The Magnificent Seven," and an unparalleled live 1960 fashion act.

NYC-based fashion blogger Dana Suchow of Do The Hotpants made that realization of having photos that are too perfect and has decided to lift that veil on her perceived perfectionby releasing a few of her unretouched style shots alongside the photoshopped ones. In her post called Photos I Wish I Didnt Photoshop, Suchow says she wants to lift the veil that is currently suffocating us women and she laments that she hasnt been fully truthful with her readers. Ive decided to expose the instances where I usedphotoshopto distort and change my body.I know it might only look like an inch or 2removed from my waist, or a couple zits blurred here and there, but my stomach and my skin have beenhuge insecurities for me my entire life. So me revealing these images to you are a HUGE DEAL 4 ME & not to be taken lightly. Im putting my flaws out there, as little or as big as they seem, so please respect that this isnt easy for anyone. This was a super cool move on Dana Suchows part and we hope other bloggers join her in removing the veil.

At 6 foot 2, with a mostly black wardrobe worthy of a rocker, Grace recalls the days before she was "out" and on the hunt for women's clothes.

I cut open the lining of my purse and sewed the technology inside. It worked, and my friends and family liked the bag so much that they started asking to pay me to retrofit their bags for them.

The two labels were showing Tuesday for London's menswear fashion week, which features trendy young designers alongside the British capital's famed traditional tailoring houses. Burberry - Britain's most successful fashion label and leader in both men's and women's wear - drew a large crowd to its display, staged in a glass marquee in Hyde Park. The outfits came in arty puma shoes prints and a rainbow of pretty colors, with everything from shades of turquoise and sea green to mustard, purple and pink. Designer Christopher Bailey said the collection was inspired by antique English book covers and writers: Models carried oversized notebooks under their arms. Bailey said he believed men enjoy fashion just as much as women. "I think a guy shops in a slightly different way to a woman, but I think guys absolutely enjoy the aesthetic of clothes, as well as the whole idea of what fashion is," he said.

that resembles what we've built in New York and translates our brand to the side of the country where the clothes are being worn more," she says. It's been 14 years since Hoffman, who grew up in Buffalo, N.Y., and graduated from Parsons School of Design, started making hand-dyed, one-of-a-kind clothing out of her apartment in New York City's Curry Hill neighborhood. Soon after, she was discovered by "Sex and the City" costume designer Patricia Field when she was bringing some of her clothing to a consignment store to pay the bills. Field placed a $5,000 order, and Hoffman thought she had won the lottery. From there, she began selling her pieces store-to-store, modeling them herself.
