Alexander Wang is not a happy man. The young designer was accused by former employee Wenyu Lu of running a sweatshop. Lu, in a $50 million lawsuit against the designer, claims that he was forced to work 84-hour work weeks sewing Wang’s clothes. And, Lu alleges, he once passed out after working for 25 hours straight. Now the case is advancing forward, and will be refiled on the federal level.

No, of course these aren’t real shoes. They’re an art project from Polish artist Erwina Ziomkowska, but we also prefer to think of them as a statement about the pain women endure in order to be beautiful. High heels, so very masochistic! [Vice]

Her 10 Best Looks: Lily Collins

Lily Collins is the star of the new fairy tale-inspired movie “Mirror Mirror.” She’s also the daughter of adult-contempo singer Phil Collins, but thankfully didn’t get his looks. Instead, she’s got a total Audrey Hepburn vibe, working the red carpet in a variety of gorgeous designer looks. Lily seems to love Dolce & Gabbana and Chanel — and exudes a more classic vibe then some of her young contemporaries (ahem, Miley Cyrus). Check out some of our favorite Lily Collins’ red carpet moments after the jump!

Is Pinterest Being Shady?
Here's how Pinterest makes money. Read More »

Our favorite new Internet timewaster, Pinterest has in recent weeks become a haven for online pro-anorexia and eating disorder communities. Drawn to the site’s image-heavy, community-oriented style, thinsporation posters have recently flooded the site, posting pictures of jutting hips, emaciated models and concave bellies, emblazoned with pro-ana slogans like “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” And, most importantly, Pinterest posters can post anonymously, meaning that users can reach out to one another but still feel safe.

But all of that is about to change.
