Miley Cyrus and Max Azria coming to a Wal-Mart near you!

By Kimberley Foster on June 3rd, 2009

Miley Cyrus.jpgUh-huh it’s true… Miley Cyrus and Max Azria have inked a deal with Wal-Mart to create a line for juniors. Can you just hear the dollar signs ringing already?

The range is to be called “Miley Cyrus and Max Azria” (some originality maybe?) and will include tops, pants, graphic T-shirts and shoes, starting from $20. It will go on sale at Wal-Mart outlets and via from August this year.

I guess we should have known something was up when Miley starting wearing grown-up wear by Azria. For example, that sparkly minidress Hervé Léger dress she wore to the London premiere of Hannah Montana: The Movie. Look out Olsens!


Would you wear American Apparel’s bottomless tights? (NSFW)

By Kimberley Foster on May 25th, 2009


Good Lord! What have the broad-minded folks over at American Apparel come up with now? These bottomless tights (or “assless tights” as some are calling them) are just one of the new styles to look out for from the retailer. They are specially designed without a back allowing you to show off your booty, as I’m sure many women would prefer *ahem*. They are still in production, and not available to buy just yet. However, it just begs one question – after Woody Allen sued them and won, are AA so hard up for cash now they can’t even afford whole hosiery?

Would you wear these tights? Vote in our poll after the jump and see them in all their glory (NSFW, naturally)…

Woody Allen awarded $5million by American Apparel

By Kimberley Foster on May 19th, 2009

The long-running feud between Woody Allen and American Apparel has finally been settled for a cool $5million.

The director sued the clothing retailer last year, after they used his image in advertising billboards without his authorization. American Apparel’s chief executive, Don Charney, argued that the image, which depicted Allen as a Hasidic Jew from Allen’s 1977 film, Annie Hall, was fair game.

On Monday, the case was put to bed when Allen was awarded $5million for violation of privacy, although he initially filed for $10million.

“It’s of course possible that by going through the trial a jury might have awarded me more money but this is not how I make my living and $5 million is enough to discourage American Apparel or anyone else from trying such a thing again,” Allen said.
