"...ABC has a problem with hot ladies in their undies" or so says plus-sized lingerie carrier Lane Bryant. Apparently, back in April Lane Bryant claimed the network attempted to shut-out their plus size lingerie commercial from airing and that they "demanded excessive re-edits and rebuffed it three times before relenting to air it during the final 10 minutes of ‘American Idol,’ but only after we threatened to pull the ad buy."
What we don't get is that ABC routinely airs Victoria's Secret commercials, as well as their annual fashion show, which feature half-naked women prancing around in stilettos. In our opinion, the Lane Bryant ad is a lot more tame than the VS lingerie campaigns. This controversy has led Landline TV to create a spoof on Victoria's Secret featuring skeletons in a blond wig trying to be "sexy."

Here’s one use for fake goods we can get behind. More than $3.6 million worth of counterfeit goods in the form of 109,300 pairs of shoes, 10,000 pants, and 2,592 sweaters were seized in the Los Angeles/Long Beach seaports, but instead of simply trashing the fakes, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection decided to donate the items to those in need. Now, a variety of organizations including World Vision International, Soles4Souls, Samaritan’s Feet, and Shelter Partnership are set to receive a major infusion of clothing contributions, which will provide for hundreds in need. It truly warms our hearts to think that, finally, someone has realizedf all the excess in the world can be used for good. It calls to mind the Wal-Mart, H&M
NY and Urban Outfitters
drama from earlier this year, where the retailers were destroying/throwing away tons of unsold merchandise in their trash bins. Interestingly, all of the designers who were knocked off with these counterfeit items agreed to the donation, meaning fashion’s feeling especially altruistic lately.
Urban Outfitters' perfectly good trash ---->

In an apparent bid to capture the hipster baby market, Huggies just released faux-denim diapers. We hadn’t thought about it before, but regular diapers do seem a little lame, don’t they? And once an infant is swaddled in the hippest of diapers, he or she can’t just keep wearing totally pedestrian baby clothes. No, if you go denim diaper, you’ll want to dress your kid in a hipster outfit. Complete the "hipster" look with the pieces below:
