  • Smalto, designer to leaders and athletes, dies at 87

    Updated: Mon, Apr 6, 2015

    PARIS (AP) — Francesco Smalto, an Italian-born designer who fashioned clothes for world leaders and celebrities, died at age 87, his fashion house said in a statement Monday. The Smalto fashion house praised his ability to "reconcile virility, mystery and sensitivity" in his menswear designs and create clothes for "the most demanding men on the planet." Moroccan news website Le360.ma reported that he died in in Marrakech. No information was immediately available about funeral arrangements. Smalto founded his menswear line in Paris in 1962, and went on to design custom-made clothes for such big-name clients as actor Jean-Paul Belmondo, the king of Morocco and the president of Gabon.

  • No promises by Giuliana Rancic to return to 'Fashion Police'

    Updated: Mon, Apr 6, 2015

    NEW YORK (AP) — Giuliana Rancic isn't making any promises that she'll return to "Fashion Police" in the fall. The E! Entertainment personality appeared on the "Today" show Monday to promote her new book, "Going off Script." And she also seemed to go off-script at the interview's conclusion, when host Savannah Guthrie asked if Rancic "will be there" when "Fashion Police" airs again in September. Hedging, Rancic said only, "We'll see." The show, formerly hosted by the late Joan Rivers, has recently been in turmoil with the abrupt departures of panelist Kelly Osbourne and new host Kathy Griffin. Before that, Rancic took heat for a wisecrack about actress Zendaya's dreadlocks that some viewers, including the a

  • AP Interview: Gaultier on Madonna and saying "au revoir"

    Updated: Thu, Apr 2, 2015

    PARIS (AP) — He may be one of the world's most famous designers, but Jean Paul Gaultier seems to be falling out of love with the fashion industry. The French couturier — who found fame putting Madonna in a conical bra and helped shape global trends for four decades — shocked the fashion world by ending his ready-to-wear and menswear lines earlier this year. And in a candid interview with The Associated Press, the 62-year-old — whose signature peroxide quiff has now rather symbolically grayed — explained why. "Too many clothes kills clothes ... Fashion has changed. A proliferation of clothing. Eight collections per season — that's 16 a year," he said. "The system doesn't work ... There aren't enough peo
