The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Maison Martin Margiela and Alexis Mabille Made Couturiers, Michael Kors is Leaving Project Runway, and Carly Cushnie and Alexander Wang Make Forbes‘s 30 Under 30 List

• Their H&M collection might not have translated to the everyday shopper, but that doesn’t mean Maison Martin Margiela has gone out of style! The fashion house, alongside label Alexis Mabille, has officially received couture accreditation from France’s Chambre Syndicale. (WWD)

Michael Burke, former CEO at Bulgari, will take the reins as CEO of Louis Vuitton. The newly-appointed exec will replace the ousted Jordi Constans, who is excusing himself due to health issues. Feel better, Jordi! (WWD)

• Carly Cushnie, The Olsen Twins, Alexander Wang, and Joseph Altuzarra are just a few of the art and fashion design stars who made Forbes‘s Top 30 Under 30 list. Adele and our girl Robyn Fenty also made the cut. (Forbes)

• So, they’re still beating this long-dead horse: a new study has found that two out of five black women don’t exercise becuase they’re scared to mess up their precious hair. Just how many of these “black women are fat” or “black women have weird hair wooooaaahh!” studies must we endure? (The Cut)


• The kids will be sad to hear that Michael Kors is leaving his judging post on Project Runway due to scheduling issues. With seasons 10 and 11 filming one after the other, the designer couldn’t spare the extra moments. And who can blame him– he’s got some multi million-dollar companies to run! Zac Posen will sit in for Kors as a “featured judge,” but don’t fret PR die-hards: Kors will be back to judge the show’s finale. (Hollywood Reporter)

• Get into Kenzo’s “Tiger Fever” video, introducing their Spring/Summer 2013 collection. Looks like you’ll have another chance to nab one of those uber popular logo sweatshirts! (Kenzo)
