The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Animal Activist Hires Hit Man to Kill Fur Supporter, Your Skinny Jeans May Be Killing You, and Inside Margherita Macapani Missoni’s Apartment

• In “you whylin’” news, a 27 year-old Ohio woman tried to hire a hit man to kill any person over the age of 14 seen wearing fur. No, you read that correctly. Merdeith Marie Lowell, probable P.E.T.A supporter and definite crazy person, put out an advertisement on Facebook searching for an executioner.

Her post was immediately picked up by an FBI agent, and her plan was subsequently foiled. She offered $850 for the job, money which could have bought a very nice fur stole. (Jezebel)

Mary Katrantzou has designed an Easter Egg for the Fabergé Easter Egg Hunt in London. You can bid on the giant floral-embellished egg, which will be on display at the Mayfair Hotel for 40 days and 40 nights. Proceeds will go to one of the several charities the Egg Hunt supports, including Action for Children and Elephant Family. I wonder if the egg has a treat in it; like, I don’t know, a dress from Katrantzou’s Fall 2012 collection, maybe? (Incentive Travel)
