Photobucket Miuccia Prada Would Never Do Fast Fashion: More from Miuccia Prada’s extensive interview with WWD, “I have never even considered [fast fashion] and I’ve explained why. It’s because I don’t like the idea of a bad copy of what one does for the main brand. If I had an ingenious idea to do fashion that costs less but that wasn’t a bad copy of something else, with completely different criteria and ways of doing things, I would do it. Also for myself, it would be an ingenious idea. For now, what I see more or less is the bad copy. Also with clothes that cost little, you need to ask why they cost so little. Because no one ever asks themselves that.” - via

Photobucket "Cathy Horyn on the Michelle Obama “Witch Hunt”: We thought it was kinda tssk-tssk-y for the CFDA and ODLR and WWD to shame Michelle Obama for wearing a foreign designer to the China state dinner. So did Cathy Horyn. And she’s got some very valid points: “I’m afraid the C.F.D.A., while wanting to act like a family, really represents individuals with very different interests. The truth is many of its members, including its president, Diane Von Furstenberg, manufacture a significant portion of their clothes outside the United States, mainly in Asia. Why wasn’t that mentioned in the WWD articles?” She also voices concern that Mrs. O will be known only for her dresses and not her brains and the good work she’s been doing as FLOTUS. Preach, Horyn! Only why back down from the original title of your post? Horyn originally titled her post “Witch Hunt” and now it’s headlined “About that McQueen Dress". - via

Nicki Minaj & Drake - Moment 4 Life Music Video and Behind The Scenes

Nicki Minaj & Drake take their tune 'Moment 4 Life' to a video directed by Chris Robinson. Nicki shows her acting chops by teaming with her fairy Godmother and giving us a sneak peak on what we think will be Nicki's next move, a video with Eminem for their explosive track 'Romans Revenge' that coincedently we think will be released around the time Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Rihanna hit the video screens as well. It's going to be an all out Pop Female battle. We can't wait to see what these lovely ladies will conjure up.
