Zara Pulls Shirt Resembling ‘star Of David’ – Cnn.com

She struggled with depression for many years and committed suicide in 2007 while she was stricken with ovarian cancer. British supermodel Naomi Campbell was sentenced to a week of community service with the New York City Sanitation Department in 2007 after being convicted for throwing a cell phone at her housekeeper so hard that the woman required stitches. But mopping floors and picking up trash did not stop her from getting a case of air rage a couple of years later , which got her banned from British Airways and another 200 hours of community service and fines ordered by a British court. In 2005, supermodel Kate Moss was in the papers , but not because of the clothes she was wearing. Photos were published in The Daily Mirror showing her apparently snorting cocaine. She was not charged with drug offenses, because of weak prospects for a conviction, but she was swiftly dropped from many advertising contracts.

Fashion was fine at the Emmys but look out for Lizzy Caplan’s train – LA Times

At the German retailer’s first-ever news conference, in a converted industrial building in trendy east Berlin, its three management board members said the start-up launched in a basement just six years ago was now growing up. “Zalando is entering a new phase,” said co-founder David Schneider. “Today we have one of the largest and most sophisticated warehouses across Europe. We could easily double our sales volume and not see such a problem.” Zalando is set to announce in the first half of September the listing of a 15 percent stake that could value the company at about 6 billion euros (4.76 billion pounds) in one of Germany’s biggest tech flotations for years, sources have told Reuters. The Zalando team declined to comment on speculation of an initial public offering (IPO) on Thursday, with board member Ruben Ritter sticking to the standard line that a listing remained an option for the company.

In Pictures: What Happens When You Ask A Group Of Fashion Designers To Fit Out A Hotel In Amsterdam? – Forbes

Each of the 61 rooms at Hotel The Exchange have been designed by the brightest young minds at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute with the guidance of Dutch design studio Ina Matt . As part of the process, the students have taken specifically developed fabrics from the Dutch Textile Museum to dress the rooms like they would their own catwalk models. 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.

It is quite beautiful, and very hard to miss. Enjoying your 30s much? asked a friend I hadnt seen for a while when we got together for lunch. And we both laughed, but I dont see it that way at all. To me, the tattoo is a daily reminder of a certain hard-won comfort I feel within my skin, one that Im certain only best site comes with time.

Has Hip-hop Successfully Infiltrated The Fashion Industry As Rapper A$ap Rocky And Model Girlfriend Chanel Iman Land Editorial Spread In Vogue Magazine? | Thecelebritycafe.com

(Source: WECT) WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Racks of colorful clothes, displays of handmade jewelry, and even boxes of designer bow ties fulfilled every shopper’s dream at the first ever Fashion On Front event Thursday evening. “The event really is a launch of Wilmington Fashion that’s an onsite forum,” event representative Andrea Cordon explained. Shoppers who purchased tickets could peruse different displays while speaking to store owners and sipping wine. “What makes Wilmington unique is that there is so much local love and support for fashion,” Cordon said. Karyn Oetting, owner of Second Skin Vintage, said she was looking for that local support which is why she opted to set up shop at the event. “I had decided traditional advertising wasn’t going to reach my target audience, but this seemed like a way I could connect with other people interested in fashion.” Event representative Khalilah Olokunola said even though Wilmington is considered a small city, Fashion on Front proves that the local industry is comparable to other Fashion Meccas around the world. “Country people, country girls, country men can think big, and we think big here in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Although, these fashion monarchs have adapted over the years, one group of entertainment appears marginally excluded from high-fashion publications, hip-hop rappers and entertainers. Rapper Kanye West has become known for his rants or ‘streams of consciousness’ as he calls it about his constant battle for recognition in the fashion world.

Mercury vs. Sparks, Game 1 final score: Phoenix makes plays down the stretch to beat L.A., 75-72 – Yahoo Sports

Those shooting tendencies also explain the disparity in free throw attempts better than any officiating bias might: while the Mercury had 22 free throw attempts in the game, the Sparks had just 8 as they continued to take off-balance or contested mid-range shots. Second, the Sparks fell apart down the stretch. It wasn’t just the late scoring drought that Minnesota Lynx play-by-play man Alan Horton pointed out on Twitter . In the final three minutes, the Sparks had three turnovers and gave up three offensive rebounds to the Mercury. The Mercury didn’t exactly shoot any better – they were just 1-for-7 in the final three minutes – but the Sparks gave up 8 free throw attempts to allow them to manufacture points. Yet the Mercury also had Diana Taurasi scoring 9 of her game-high 34 points in the fourth quarter; down a point with 40 seconds left, Taurasi hit a pair of free throws to regain the lead.
