After adding Armani to its list of fur-free designers, PETA is lashing out at the designer.

According to the activist web site, Armani’s newest collection is a contradiction of his statements to TIME magazine last year.

PETA representatives say the fur-trimmed jackets, fur-hemmed skirts, floral-printed fur coats, and fur-trimmed snowsuits for babies don’t cut it.

Armani has an odd obsession with rabbit fur, and two weeks ago, he refused to meet with PETA Vice President Dan Mathews in Milan to see disturbing undercover video footage of rabbit fur farms. Since Armani has refused to hear animals’ side of the story, it is now time to see if he will listen to the public.

Take a look at PETA’s stance on the matter.


It’s not often I take a look at Jet magazine to check out who’s wearing what.

But their October 6, 2008 issue warranted a second look.

Jada Pinkett Smith graces the cover in a stunning black number.

She chats on her life as Will Smith’s wife and her life as a mom, singer, writer, etc., etc.

“As a Black woman I’ve really been trying to craft a line in my creative life to show that we can do anything,” she tells the mag.

The issue is on newstands now.


Whitney Port’s got a new endorsement — with Skintimate.

Yep, that’s right — the women’s shave gel.

In a statement issued by the company, the fashion-designer-in-training gives some advice.

When shaving, I never use soap or water. With soap I don’t really get a close shave and end up having to shave more often. Soap can also dry out your skin and cause gross razor burn. Choose a shave gel instead. My favorite shave gel is Skintimate® Signature Scents in Flirty Mango(TM).

I don’t know about you but I get the strange feeling that Whitney doesn’t shave at all.

If you want to keep people intrigued and interested, you’re going to have to put things together in an unexpected way that at first you kind of look at it and you might say, “Uh, really? Would you really wear that together?”

But then when you look at it it’s kind of like when you look at a woman whose not beautiful at first, but then you realize she’s actually gorgeous when she starts laughing. – Michael Kors

Here’s an interesting one.

If you’re employed at Hollister, you’re required to wear skirts and pants above the knee.

Now a former worker is suing because she says she was fired for not complying with company policy.

Associated Press reports:

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is suing after a Hollister Co. store worker was allegedly fired for refusing to wear pants or a skirt above the knee, something that she says violates her religious beliefs.The EEOC filed suit Thursday on behalf of Lakettra Bennett, who is Pentacostal and formerly worked at the Hollister store at the St. Louis Galleria mall in Richmond Heights, Mo. The suit against J.M. Hollister LLC and parent company Abercrombie & Fitch Stores Inc. seeks back pay and damages.

Abercrombie & Fitch general counsel David Cupps says the company is committed to fostering diversity and inclusiveness. Cupps says he hasn’t seen the lawsuit but says he would be surprised if the company was not faithful to its policy.

The EEOC says the federal Civil Rights Act requires “reasonable accommodations” for religious beliefs.
