Screen Shot 2014-09-15 at 10.56.13 AM

Urban Outfitters is selling faux-vintage "blood-splattered" Kent State sweatshirts, referencing the 1970 shooting that left four dead.

A University spokesperson responded ... See the Rest

Out In New York: Is Wintour Over?


The Kimye cover backlash continues – I guess until the next issue comes out. I subscribe and was not THAT appalled when I got my copy. It's a feature profile –they're not pretending she's a model – she just had a baby and is about to get married, so she's wearing wedding dresses, shot beautifully by Annie Liebovitz.

Lance Bass posted this on his Instagram with, "Don't knock it 'til ya try it Phil" which ignited commentary there from both sides.
