View gallery - Fur, or almost - Roskanda There were short, swinging skirts in laser cut faux leather in red or black, matched with tops tied at the bust, as well as shaggy faux fur coats. And who wouldn't want to be seen on the dance floor with a girl wearing the glitter ball crystal-studded frock from David Koma, the Georgian-born designer who has dressed Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Kylie? - Fur, or almost - High-street store Topshop had furry stoles, cuffs and coat edging for the Unique collection that for the first time took its signature urban look into the countryside, along with cords and floral patterned frocks. Serbian-born designer Roksanda had acid-coloured fur coats, gilets and wraps belted into tiny-waisted full skirts, matched with blue or orange furry clutches.

Meanwhile luxury house Mulberry used dried thistles to brush up its wool to look and feel like fur. The plants are attached to a rotating column on a machine and when the wool is fed into it, "they extract the fibres and lengthen them out to create a fur-like texture", knitwear designer Jade Leong told AFP.

Solange Had No Words for ‘Fashion Police,’ but Her Flip of the Hair Spoke Volumes - Yahoo News

"CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King joins CBSN with more on how it... Before her brand got 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.

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

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.

Five themes from London Fashion Week - Yahoo News

(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.
