• In addition to shouting out Anna Wintour and model Anja Rubik on his newest track, “Theraflu,” Kanye West also had some choice words for a certain crazed animal rights group: “Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor,” he raps. Never to miss an opportunity for publicity, PETA’s Senior Vice President, Dan Matthews gave a swift response: “What’s draggin’ on the floor is Kanye’s reputation as a man with no empathy for animals or human beings. He’s a great musician but doesn’t seem to have the fashion sense to design anything more than caveman costumes.” All this from the same organization who donates to groups who firebomb medical research labs! I wonder what they’ve got dragging on the floor? (The Fashion Law)
• Mattel unveiled its newest addition to the Barbie range, ‘I Can Be President Barbie.’ The toy company tapped Chris Benz to design the doll’s outfit, which features a smart pink blouse, jacket with red, white, and blue ruffle trim, and skirt in a vintage Chris Benz fabric. The designer explained to Styleite why he put Barbie in a skirt rather than a pantsuit: “I think just in terms of not being overtly masculine, a skirt suit is that classic silhouette that I think is really, really polished and pretty. I think pants sometimes take it to a different territory — a little bit sportier.” What do you think of the new doll? (Styleite)
