Miuccia Prada talks ageing and fashion

It seems that few are brave enough to use older models on the runway or in ads. At least we are seeing older models (former models who are now in their 40s) returning to modelling, yet most designers are like Miuccia Prada, who says that they’re not brave enough to do this.

‘No-one wants to age, and I really think we should find a solution,’ Prada recently said to T Magazine. She continued to talk about the fashion industry’s obsession with youth and her wish for a more diverse fashion community. Being a leftist feminist herself, she wants to change the industry, but says the youth-obsessed culture still does not allow for the acceptance of much older models on the runway or in front of the camera.

ASOS recalls radioactive belts

Eeek! This is quite scary. British online retailer ASOS (I’m sure you’ve either heard of or ordered clothes from them) recalled a bunch of belts in January this year since they contained radioactive material, isotope Cobalt-60 – known to cause cancer, yet the news only broke now. Shocking!

Something Karl Lagerfeld won’t put this name to

He has designed and continues to create some of the most beautiful clothes in the world. He has put his name to a pen, a helicopter, art installations and more. But what won’t he design? Condoms and toilet paper. He said in a recent interview that he simple won’t go that far – even though people would probably happily pay for Lagerfeld-branded condoms, don’t you think?

Amanda Bynes’s hit list

The troubled actress, who was recently arrested for discarding her bong out of the window of her New York apartment, seems to have several enemies – all self-created!
