Glamour magazine conducted a survey, and found that only 7% of women say they love their hair. Even with such a paltry percentage of women feeling their tresses, black women (in true form) were more likely to vote in the affirmative, with 14% of us reporting that yes, we are quite content with what grows on our heads.

• Starting November 13, “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier” exhibition will be on view at the Dallas Museum of Art. Amongst the pieces on display will be Chris Tucker‘s furry leopard bodysuit from The Fifth Element, two cone bras Madonna wore on her 1990 “Blonde Ambition” world tour, and an assortment of  couture pieces dating back as far as 1976 to today. The exhibition will run until February 12, 2012, and from there will move on to San Francisco, Madrid, Rotterdam, and Stockholm. Texans, will you be checking this out?

• Following the epic success (or, if you were a consumer, failure) of the Missoni x Target capsule collection, Missoni is shopping around, looking for the next retailer to team up with. Fashionista thinks they may join ranks with Macy’s, which sounds like a good idea. The pieces will inevitably be higher priced, so that means less madness! Would you give a Missoni collab a second chance? (Fashionista)

  1. Well that goes to show that most women, including black women, do not like their hair. This semtiment is alot broader than we think it is. However, it just seems that other races of women still wear their hair, and not try to cover it up.

  2. Those displays are SUPER cool!! Especially the walking shoes one, and the shoes rotating around the head of hear….

  3. obviously most black women aren’t happy with their hair. if they were they wouldnt run to relaxers and wigs/weaves to cover up what god gave them naturally. hurts but its true…

  4. Missoni look like it belongs in Rainbow or something. That print is not even whats up!?! I dont understand the hoopla over it.
