    The Cut‘s Maureen O’Connor has a bone to pick with Kim Kardashian and her rather uncomfortable-looking maternity wardrobe. O’Connor argues that the reality starlet’s penchant for fitted pieces, and obsession with hiding her weight gain at this point in her pregnancy is a little troublesome, if not simply ridiculous: “I’m not saying she has to “dress the bump” if she doesn’t want to. But if there’s one time when you don’t need to “conceal weight gain,” it’s when your weight gain is associated with the human organism growing in your torso.” Fair enough! What do you think? Should Kim end her fronting, and keep things comfy while she’s with child? Or do you think her fitted wardrobe is fabulous? (The Cut)

    • HL Group executive Lynn Tesoro, who was slapped in the face back in September before the Zac Posen show, has settled the $1 million dollar lawsuit she filed against her aggressors, Jalou publishing house president Marie José Susskind-Jalou, and daughters  Vanessa Bellugeon and Jennifer Eymere. If you remember, fire marshalls descended upon the Posen show last season to remove 60 seats from the venue. In the grand mix-up, the HL PR team were forced to rearrange seats, which set off the Jalou girls, resulting in the slap heard ’round the fashion world. Tesoro sued for libel, assault, and slander. All three of the accused parties have been charged with assault and slander, and while we don’t know how much the settlement was for, we do know that the Jalou clan was made to apologize to Tesoro for their behavior. Good ‘ol American Justice: served! (WWD)

    • Well we know at least one person was feeling Hedi Slimane‘s Fall 2013 collection. Courtney Love has been singing the designer’s praises for his execution of the grunge look the singer helped popularize back in the ’90s. “Hedi is a genius,” she said, “No offense to MJ [Marc Jacobs] but he never got it right. This is what it really was. Hedi knows his shit. He got it accurate, and MJ and Anna [Sui] did not.” Hmm… what do you think? Were you feeling Hedi’s collection this season? (Grazia)
