I loved it when I saw the samples for the first time.” Britney Spears responds to such hard-hitting questions as, “Studs are still a big trend. Were there any other trends you wanted to incorporate?” and “So, it was love at first sight. Do you have a favorite item from the collection?” [InStyle]

  • Shopping receipts have now been found to contain dangerous levels of Bisphenol A, a chemical that is thought by scientists to be an endocrine disruptor in humans. Great.

Beautiful hair and skin is a must!”), the brand’s advertising agency released a statement saying the casting notice was “not approved” by Dove. [StyleList]
  • Nadja Auermann: “The 70s was a fun, bold period in fashion. I loved it. There was lots of colour, prints and strangely shaped trousers. But then I’ve always loved Abba, so that suited me just fine. I spent my childhood dressed like Agnetha.” [Guardian]

Then, after months of dithering, the Times hired Sally Singer away from Vogue. Singer has now replaced Christensen. And some of Christensen’s colleagues are angry. “They put her up for the job.

  • “It is no small secret that an elite handful of homosexual men are responsible for the self-esteem of millions of women worldwide,” writes DIS magazine.

Fashion is pain, dearies. [DIS]
