The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Dwyane Wade Tweets His Pedi, Alessandra Ambrosio Catches Flack From PETA for Dip-Dyed Dog, and Jessica Simpson to Launch Bridal Line

Dwyane Wade got his toenails did this weekend, and showed off his black matte pedicure via Twitter.

Matte black paint… RockStar ish..,” the Miami Heat shooting guard tweeted, along with a snap of his not-so-expertly photoshopped feet (that clear use of the blur tool is killing me softly. Hiding a couple bunions there, Mr. Wade?) What do you think? Hot! or Hmm…? (@DwyaneWade)


Valentino‘s up for purchase, and could go for almost $852 million. Thanks to the Telegraph, rumors have been swirling that the Royal family of Qatar (or, as they said, an “unidentified sovereign wealth fund”) have already scooped up the brand, but the folks over at Valentino would not confirm this. We’ll keep you updated as this story unfolds. (Fashionista)

Jessica Simpson, who just released photos for her new maternity line, continues to use her personal experiences as a vehicle for revenue. The Fashion Star judge has revealed plans to launch a bridal collection, just in time for her own nuptials. Do you think you’d buy a dress designed by someone on Simpson’s team? (InTouch)


Victoria’s Secret Angel and new mom Alessandra Ambrosio is catching flack from PETA over her super-adorable pink and purple dip-dyed dog. When photos surfaced of the model walking her pooch, the animal rights organization took a break from their *busy* schedules to release a completely unnecessary and unwarranted statement on the matter. “What most people don’t know is that dyeing a companion animal’s fur can cause the animal stress and can lead to complications or allergic reactions that endanger the animal’s health.” PETA said.“Our dogs and cats love us regardless of how we look; why not extend the same kindness to them?” While I think doggie dye-jobs are a little silly, Ambrosio’s dog looks fine. What do you think? (NYDN)
