We’re Sold on Miley Cyrus for Marc Jacobs for Planned Parenthood

Marc Jacobs is known for using his brand’s visibility to shine the spotlight on social issues beyond the scope of fashion. In the past he’s collaborated with Christy Turlington Burns’ Every Mother Counts to raise funds in support of maternal health programs worldwide. Profits from his Playboy partnership — remember those tees splashed with the iconic image of Kate Moss in her bunny ears and not much else? — benefited amFAR. Just recently, the fashion mogul’s Spring 2016 campaign centered on “the idea of equality” in America, particularly the Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriages. Now, Marc is putting his talents to altruistic use yet again, this time by endorsing women’s right to choose.

 

Thank you for the #MileyxMarilyn t-shirt shout out @JimmyFallon!

Marc Jacobs, Miley Cyrus and Marilyn Minter used their combined design, entertainment and artistic prowess to create limited-edition Miley x Marilyn T-shirts, now available for $50 at Marc Jacobs boutiques and online. One hundred percent of net proceeds from sales will go to Planned Parenthood, an organization which, for those not familiar, advocates for women’s reproductive rights, offers low-cost gynecological care and helps educate women regarding their sexual health, among other community services. If Donald Trump wins the presidency (shudder), Planned Parenthood will likely lose its national funding and may even be forced to shutter its doors. (more…)

Acclaimed U.S.-based artist Electra Printz Gorski is suing the Australian Cotton On Group for allegedly stealing her designs.

Gorski says that the clothing behemoth “flagrantly” knocked off a clothing design she created in 2011 depicting the slogan ‘LETTUCE TURNIP THE BEET’. She has since sold clothing, gift wrap, prints, stickers and tote bags bearing the slogan.

An Australian-based Etsy designer noticed a Cotton On store was selling tank tops in Melbourne bearing the same slogan and contacted Gorski to ask if she had sold her design to the Australian clothing brand, which has over 1400 stores in 18 countries worldwide. Gorski then sent a cease and desist letter to Cotton On Group accusing the company of willfully infringing her copyright and trademark, and alleging that a senior Cotton On designer ‘pinned’ one of her designs on Pinterest three years ago.

It hasn’t even been a month since news of Prince’s untimely passing rocked us to our cores. At the time, notable figures from all corners of the music, fashion and entertainment industries took to social media to eulogize one of the most iconic artists ever to have graced us with his powerful, gender-bending presence. Even without these testimonials, the rock god’s influence on the runways, stages and glossy spreads of the world would’ve been undeniable.

Prince was known for his funky, subversive, contradictory style choices. He oozed sexuality, yet referenced prim Victorian-era fashions. His sartorial arsenal included a seemingly endless pool of tight, high-waisted trousers, voluminous blouses and jauntily tailored suits in all manner of sequins, fringe, silk, velvet and lace that somehow accented his muscularity and masculinity.

This Lemonade-Inspired Coloring Book is the Ultimate Form of Therapy

The ultimate form of therapy has arrived. Behold, the Lemonade coloring book.

For years, adult coloring books have topped Amazon bestseller lists and anyone who’s ever put pigmented pencil to paper will readily tell you why: “Coloring definitely has therapeutic potential to reduce anxiety, create focus or bring [about] more mindfulness,” says Marygrace Berberian, a certified art therapist and the Clinical Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator for the Graduate Art Therapy Program at NYU. Research shows that coloring inside the lines is essentially akin to meditation. Now, combine that feeling with the transcendental state we assume when experiencing Beyoncé’s incredible new visual album and you might just achieve nirvana.
