>> Karlie Kloss has a new client: Victoria's Secret Pink. Images of the model sporting the youthful line just popped up in the latest Victoria's Secret catalogue, marking Kloss's first appearance ever for the brand. Now that she's 18, will Kloss be shooting for Victoria's Secret more often? If so, Pink also has a featured segment in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show — perhaps she will be making an appearance this upcoming November.
I'm a city gal but that won't stop me from looking like a country cutie. To fake this Midwest vibe, dig around for soft, floral prints and muted colors. Smaller florals — like VS model Behati Prinsloo's Victoria's Secret Pink corset floral dress — deliver the best country girl illusion. If dresses aren't your thing, pair a smocked top with some cut-off jean shorts for a more casual look.
Here's the most important part to getting this right: take another glance at the South African beauty. Did you notice how she paired her dress with kickass Alex Wang heels? That's how you do it. Contrast all of that country softness with a tough piece to give it a modern touch.
Yesterday, Juicy Couture filed a lawsuit accusing Victoria's Secret Pink of using similar ideas and icons, such as their trademark seat-of-the-pants Juicy logo (below). Also underscored was the fact that Victoria's Secret is selling apparel wrapped in the shape of lollipops and ice cream cones, mimicking the packaging used in Juicy's Sweet Shoppe.
The suit claims that Victoria's Secret is trying to capitalize on the success of Juicy Couture, which raked in a whopping $420 million in sales last year. The company is asking for the offending clothing to be destroyed and to be awarded triple damages. Victoria's Secret has made no comment, but do you think the lawsuit has merit?
For New York Fashion Week, Victoria's Secret Pink built a sorority-themed showroom promoting its Phi Beta Pink collection for fall, as well as a Rock Royalty Holiday line, which hits stores Oct. 17. Strewn throughout three sorority-house bedrooms and a common area were piles of cute pieces from the Pink lounge and sleepwear line, which is targeted to girls ages 18 to 22.
Phi Beta Pink, which is available now but will have more colors coming at the end of the fall, features cute, girly items emblazoned with with fun slogans, like "Phi Beta Pink," "Just Woke Up," and "More Pink Pretty Please!" It also includes a number of accessories, such as scarves with hoods, fingerless gloves, leg warmers, and totes. There are a number of sporty items, too, including a tennis-racket cover, a surf board, and built-in shelf camis. To learn more about the Pink line and to see more pics, read more
