• Pharrell talks fashion, Grammy anticipation

    Updated: Thu, Dec 4, 2014

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Pharrell Williams says he's not nervous about Friday's Grammy nominations, but he's definitely excited to see how it plays out. Williams' megahit "Happy" was released before Grammy eligibility, but the song's live version could nab nominations for record of the year and best pop solo performance. At an event Wednesday celebrating his collaboration with Adidas, Williams said he remains grateful and humble about the success of his second album "G I R L." The singer-producer said the colorful, unisex collection of tennis shoes and tailored track jackets was inspired by the theme of equality. It's available now with additional pieces rolling out through 2015.

  • Underwood joins country artists with fashion line

    Updated: Wed, Dec 3, 2014

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Carrie Underwood donned more than 10 different dresses for this year's CMA Awards, but when it's time to get to sweaty in the gym, the country star was at a loss for what to wear. "I consider myself to be a pretty hard worker in the gym," said Underwood, who is expecting her first child in the spring. "The high performance things aren't pretty. And then the super pretty things don't last a long time or don't do what I need them to do. So there is a big gap." Now she's launching her own line of athletic wear with DICK'S Sporting Goods, called Calia by Carrie Underwood, which matches up her love of fashion and fitness. Underwood's new venture makes her the latest country musician to dabble in fashion.

  • Taylor Swift stars at Victoria's Secret show

    Updated: Tue, Dec 2, 2014

    LONDON (AP) — Supermodels, million-dollar bras, rhinestones and glitter galore — it can only be a Victoria's Secret catwalk show. The U.S. lingerie label brought its annual spectacle to London for the first time on Tuesday, dazzling guests with a high-octane mix of fashion and entertainment that featured 47 extravagantly dressed models and performances by pop princess Taylor Swift. Models sashayed down the catwalk wearing lingerie paired with sparkly, over-the-top costumes: think giant butterfly wings, full feather skirts, and gold knee-high stiletto boots. Top models Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio donned the brand's "fantasy bras" - encrusted with thousands of jewels and worth $2 million each - and Karlie Kloss wor

  • Brides show short wedding gowns more of the love

    Updated: Tue, Dec 2, 2014

    NEW YORK (AP) — Helen Bradley isn't one of those women who fantasized about her wedding as a girl, so when the time came to tie the knot on the 10th tee of a golf course, she wanted to be relaxed, comfortable and economical. A short gown was just right for her September nuptials, said the 27-year-old bank worker in Madison, Wisconsin. "I had tried on a few long dresses and none of them felt like me. I'm a very practical person. My mom picked out the short dress from a sale rack and it's rare that I would like anything that my mom picks out," she said with a laugh.

  • Calvin Klein's Idea of Plus Size Is Upsetting People

    Published: Mon, Nov 10, 2014

    Myla Dalbesio is a size 10. She’s smaller than the average woman — size 14 — but larger than a sample size. Because she doesn’t fit into a size 0 or 2, she has been called plus size, typically a size 12 and up. But looking at the 27-year-old model, who just debuted as the face of Calvin Klein’s “Perfectly Fit” campaign, she obviously doesn’t fit in with the skinny girls but she certainly isn’t shopping in the plus size section and her representing the category is perplexing to many people, according to Yahoo Style. Lara Stone, Jourdan Dunn, and Ji Hye Park are the other models featured alongside Dalbesio and while she’s larger than them, and comparatively to her peers, she’s just the biggest in the group, but not necessarily big enough to be considered plus size. On Twitter, Jacqueline Ford calls the categorization a “joke,” Katrine Reichert writes that it’s “fat shaming,” Donna L. Bridges says it’s a “visual paradox,” andSusan E. Sponberg asks “where’s the plus?”
