3.1 Phillip Lim Is Going Fur-Free

Fashion Week

The brand made the announcement ahead of its NYFW show

3.1 Phillip Lim has announced that, starting fall, it will be a fur-free line. The designer follows in the footsteps of a growing list of high-fashion brands that have decided to step away from using fur, including Coach, Armani, Burberry, Michael Kors, Tom Ford, and Gucci.

In a press release sent shortly prior to the designer's Fall 2019 NYFW runway show, Lim explained:

Balance is key—recognizing that we will always have a footprint but offsetting it with small gestures that eventually amount to a grand shift. The decision to ban fur—from an ethical and environmental perspective—speaks to our commitment to remain true to this ethos and listen to our customers: environmentally conscious, global citizens who shop with their values top of mind.

The brand will ban fur "such as fox, mink, lynx, chinchilla, astrakhan/karakul lamb" and exotic skins "including python, alligator, crocodile and lizard" in both ready-to-wear and accessories. The brand will still use leather and shearling, the release specifies.

In the past six months, in addition to brands going fur-free, whole cities and fashion weeks have been opting for cruelty-free fashion. London Fashion Week saw zero designers showing fur pieces last season, while Los Angeles banned the sale of furs entirely.

While she wished Tana Mongeau a happy birthday on one account, her other one paints a different picture

If you're in YouTube and influencer culture as deep as the rest of the internet, you already know that Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul got engaged yesterday. How does Mongeau's ex, actress Bella Thorne, feel about the situation? According to her official Instagram account, she's totally supportive of her. But, as is usually the case, her (what I call) Finsta tells the more realistic story.

"And then she cried the white girl cry"

I'm not sure I'd even call the ongoing spat between Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus a beef. We've seen Minaj in real beef, like her ongoing feud with Cardi B that culminated in some major Fashion Week drama. But even though things aren't that level between Minaj and Cyrus, things are still definitely not okay.

Congrats!

Amanda Bynes has just graduated with the Class of 2019 from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. Late Monday evening, Bynes shared a photo to Twitter celebrating the achievement, posing alongside a classmate in her cap and gown.

TMZ shared additional selfies with fellow classmates from the graduation ceremony. Sources told TMZ that Bynes seemed "ecstatic," and that she was "getting tons of love from her teachers and peers."

The actress has been enrolled at the school since 2014, though, as Page Six notes, was kicked out for a short period of time toward the beginning of her studies, but returned and completed her program within five years.

In March of this year, Bynes checked into a mental health facility after an alleged relapse, following four years of sobriety. Prior to that, she had returned to the public in late 2018 with an interview with Paper in which she opened up about her experience with depression after the release of She's The Man, as well as her drug use.
