The F-Word: Fashion

Armani Is Going Fur-Free

Good news for cuddly animals and the people who love them! Luxury clothing designer Giorgio Armani announced this week that his labels will be 100 percent fur-free, starting with the autumn/winter 2016 collections. The brand pledged to go fur-free after working with the Humane Society of the U.S. and the Fur Free Alliance, a coalition of 40 animal protection organizations in 28 countries working to end the fur trade.

Oscars Style: Best & Worst

The stars strutted their stuff at the Oscars. I liked what Sofia Vergara wore (many of the fashion police didn’t). Alicia Vikander (center) and Charlize Theron were also favorites. I don’t like white dinner jackets on the men — doesn’t look good on TV.

Craziest Looks At VMAs

The MTV VMAs has played host to some historic moments in fashion; from Lady Gaga’s meat dress and Beyoncé’s baby bump revealing gown to Britney Spears’ snake scarf and Justin Timberlake’s Canadian tuxedo. And the 2015 ceremony was no exception when it came to adding unforgettable outfits to the books. Miley Cyrus was obviously outrageous (her skintight fruit onesie behind-the-scenes before the lavender carpet even opened up set the tone for the night), Taylor Swift was in a matching set with her entire girl gang in tow, and Vanessa Hudgens was a total boho babe. Other attendees showed some skin with cutouts, leg slits, and crop tops, and various inventive ways to go nearly-naked while appropriately covering up for audiences at home.

Star Wars T-Shirts

Uniqlo on Monday launched a “Star Wars”-inspired T-shirt collection featuring 23 tees designed by various artists who submitted designs for a competition. The launch comes just in time for an unofficial but amazing fan holiday on May 4 known as May the Fourth Be With You. It also preps the faithful for the release of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which hits theaters this December. The clothing line is yet another fragment in the wonderful world of “Star Wars” apparel. Vans collaborated with the film franchise in 2014 with a set of high-top and low-top sneakers, and C-3PO had a moment on the runway in Rodarte’s Fall 2014 collection. The men’s and kids’ Uniqlo T-shirts ($12.90 to $19.90) go on sale April 27, in-store and online. See some of the tees below, and check out the rest at
