Kanye West is trying to get New York City to boycott Louis Vuitton.
The "Bound 2" rapper is disgruntled with the French fashion house's head, Yves Carcelle, after he refused to meet him when he was in Paris, and he is planning to teach him a lesson by publicly telling the people of New York City to stop buying his company's products.
"I wanted to meet with [Yves] in Paris. He said 'I don't understand why we need to meet with you?' I said, let me explain to you why you need to meet with me - or [to] the head of Gucci - let me explain why you need to meet with me. Everybody in New York City right now, don't buy any Louis Vuitton until after January. Now do you want to meet with me? Now do you want to meet with me? Influence. They think that I don't realize my power," he said, speaking on New York's 92.3 NOW radio station.
Whether the people of New York heed Kanye's demands is yet to be seen.
Miranda Lambert has blasted claims she had surgery to slim down.
The country star faced was rumoured to have sought help in losing a dress size recently, but assured fans her new body is down to her own hard work.
"Though I NEVER care what the tabloids have to say about me... I wanted to address this certain story they are running this week and set the record straight. I DID NOT have surgery to lose weight. That is ridiculous. I lost my weight the healthy and good old fashioned way. Watching what I eat and working out with my trainer Bill Crutchfield [sic]," she wrote on her blog.
The "Mama's Broken Heart" singer - who is married to fellow country star Blake Shelton - added she wasn't even counting how many pounds she lost, and wasn't get healthy to please anyone but herself: "As for the assumed number of pounds lost...? I don't even know! Like I have always said, it's not about a scale, it's about how you feel and how your jeans fit. And on November 10th when I turned 30, my skinny jeans were finally baggy! Mission accomplished! So for anyone who is tempted to read the 'Trash Talk' please don't. I am proud to be a normal size girl and I want to encourage everyone to be confident at any size. Thanks for the support yall!"
Victoria Beckham is donating a mountain of designer shoes to help victims of the Philippines Typhoon.
The big-hearted fashion designer is selling off some of her most expensive pairs along with dozens of items of clothing belonging to her and husband David. The donations are expected to raise thousands of pounds for those affected by the mega storm when they go on sale today.
"Dozens of pieces from the couple's wardrobe this Friday at the British Red Cross shop in Kensington & Chelsea, which specializes in designer clothing. All the money raised will help those affected by the typhoon in the Philippines," a statement on the British Red Cross's website reads.
The 39-year-old fashion icon has posted several photographs on her Instagram account showing her boxing up the donations, which include pieces from Dolce & Gabbana, Jimmy Choo and Roberto Cavalli, to name a few.
Yes, you sadly read that title correctly: Jennifer Lawrence has come out and said that what was probably her best The Hunger Games: Catching Fire red carpet look was not her favorite!
"I think any time a girl has to show her thighs it's never going to be her favorite look," she said on Good Morning America.
Although I usually eat up Lawrence's quotes, I'm still reeling from this one, considering she looked nothing but breathtaking and badass all at the same time in her Dior Haute Couture gown. Perhaps because she took a moment to realize that the dress was amazing, as she quickly clarified: "I loved it, I loved the dress -- if someone else wore it. It's hard for any woman to look at a picture of herself and [like it]."
Oh say it isn't so - our great defender of body positivity has let societal body pressures get to her when it came to this particular red carpet look. Let's hope she realizes that she's beautiful no matter what her thighs are and that she can definitely pull any gorgeous frock off with her adorable pixie cut!

Kim Kardashian has slammed rumors she had secret procedures to get rid of her baby weight.
The 33-year-old star, who gave birth five months ago to daughter North West, says she is annoyed at reports she lost 50lbs by having fat-reducing treatments.
The brunette beauty took to Twitter to address the reports and wrote, "I am very frustrated today seeing reports that I got surgery to lose my baby weight! This is FALSE. I worked so hard to train myself to eat right & healthy, I work out so hard & this was such a challenge for me but I did it!!! I'm so proud of my accomplishment & NO ONE will take this away from me with fake reports! Say what u want about me but I work hard & am the most disciplined person u will ever meet!"
Fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi believes that models' body issues are a thing of the past.
Despite three fashion models dying in the past six years from eating disorders and some still coming out these days saying that they're recovering from eating disorders, Mizrahi claims that such issues are no longer problems in today's industry:
"I don't notice girls anymore in the majority who are sickly-looking. Even if they're tall and thin now, they look healthier to me. Not fat, not fatter, but they just look healthier. I mean this -- there was a moment when there was this whole heroin chic thing and it just looked terrible. It just looked terrible! And now everyone points at it and goes, 'Oh dear, that's terrible.' And the girls are encouraged to be thin, but I don't think they're encouraged to look like drug addicts anymore. I mean, I'm sure there are some designers who like the girls to look like drug addicts, but not on the whole the way it was for a good 10 years -- like, in the middle of the '90s to around 2002 or so. There was that thing going on, and it was sickening, absolutely sickening. I don't think it exists anymore."

Is trouble brewing in Barneys and Jay-Z's fashion paradise?
The high-end retailer just announced that they will no longer be throwing a fundraising party tomorrow night to celebrate the launch of their collaboration collection with the rapper. “Due to unforeseen circumstances, the event has been canceled," read a statement from Barneys.
The news comes after Jay-Z has been pressured by fans to withhold his collection with the retail store once they properly address the racial profiling allegations against them. There is no word, however, that Jay-Z had a hand in cancelling Wednesday's party.
Proceeds of the first day's sales from Jay-Z's items and ten percent of the profits from the overall store that day are intended to go towards his Shawn Carter Foundation - the same organization to which the fundraising party was intended to benefit.

The model-turned-designer recently teamed up with the Gap-owned retailer to put out a collection for next month, and oh how I'd like to get my hands on some of those pieces! From a ruffled, floral jumpsuit and lacy, blue little dress to patterned, deep green suit and the perfect New Year's Eve dress, Scott designed something for every woman (more photos after the jump) but yet with an added touch of her sophisticated, high fashion charm.
You can dust off your credit cards for December 5 (wisely launched during the holiday season!).

Taylor Swift "didn't fit in" on the Victoria's Secret catwalk, according to model Jessica Hart.
The 23-year-old singer performed at the annual fashion show in New York on Wednesday, but Australian lingerie model Jessica wasn't impressed by her on the runway. When asked if the leggy "I Knew You Were Trouble" star could pull it off as a Victoria's Secret model, Jessica replied bluntly, "No." Speaking to Women's Wear Daily at the after show party, she said, "I think, you know what, God bless her heart. I think she's great. But I don't know, to me, she didn't fit. I don't know if I should say that. I think what you find is that for a lot of us, we've been working for 14, 15 years, what it takes to make it here comes from experience and confidence and knowing how to be confident with yourself. I think it comes with age. It's definitely the benchmark of all jobs."
