The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Alexander Wang Gets Sued Again, Marie Claire Accessories Editor Kyle Anderson is a Big Spender, and A Look at Madonna’s New Shoe Line

Alexander Wang is being sued again by another employee. Flor Duante, is the latest to file against the designer, claiming she was made to work 90-hour weeks in poor conditions. Duante says she was fired from her position after demanding compensation for her labor. She is the second of Wang’s sweatshop staff to come forward. (NY Post)

• Who says fashion doesn’t pay? In the last three months, Marie Claire accessories director Kyle Anderson, has spent $43,927.43 on frivolities like a Givenchy keychain ($185), and Prada golf shoes ($1,424.25). All that money spent, Kyle, and no trinkets for me? (Gawker)

Madonna is teaming up with ALDO Group, Inc. on a new line of shoes for her Truth or Dare label. The 60-piece line will drop this fall, consisting of several stiletto pumps and booties, including these Valentino-esque studded bow pumps. Prices range from $89-$349, the latter of which seems far too exorbitant for ALDO shoes not created in collaboration with an actual designer. (MTV Style)

• Even when they attempt to go in disguise, overexposed celebrities always manage to draw attention to themselves. Kim Kardashian ran some errands in her native Los Angeles donning a blonde wig, probably as a ploy to incite posts like the one I’m writing now. Damn you, Kim, you get us every time. (Daily Mail)

Jimmy Choo has named a new shoe after 90-year-old style icon Iris Apfel. The five-inch leather sandals are embellished with colorful resin chips. Too bad Ms. Apfel will never wear them. In a recent interview, she expressed her distaste for sky-high heels, saying,“I don’t see anything beautiful about them.” Wee womp! Anyway, I can’t help but throw a little shade to the folks at Jimmy Choo for creating a pair of heels no frail-boned 90-year-old woman is ever going to wear! Flats might have been a more prudent choice. (Telegraph)

    Iris Apfel does not see it for Jimmy Choo lmao. Too bad I think that the shoe is just too much for my personal taste. The leather knotting is competing with the resin chips and its really just too much.

    lol @ the kim post
    ps. Jihan I think you meant “elicit” instead of “incite”.

  6. Beentheredonethat says:

    LOL @ Pink Yes, Bakers is the Queen B of ridiculous prices for cheap shoes. I refuse to buy anything in there unless its on sale–closer to what its actually worth!

  7. Are you really itemizing Kyle’s purchases? How tasteless and low rent. Slow day for content?

  8. sun.kissed says:

    Looks Like Kim K broke into Nicki Minaj’s house and stole Roman’s wig–no ma’am! Those Jimmy Choo’s are cute, I’d wear them. I can’t with A Wang and the sweat shop, what country are we in again?

  9. Vanessa says:
