"Well-Dressed Rebels": ACL breaks down the stars of April GQ. [A Continuous Lean]

Board Liar: Some clever jasper was fronting like he was a board member of the Gucci Group. Why didn't we think of that? Might have had something to do with 20 years of hard time. [DNRNews]

Fred's Flair: Are you properly dressed for Fred Rogers Sweater Day? [Huffington Post]

Fashion Police: India has banned "Fashion Television" (which, frankly, we thought had been cancelled years ago). Next time you're watching models traipsing down a runway on the tube, just remember how lucky you are to be an American. [MeriNews]
