Today’s Lady News: Hillary Clinton Posts An “It Gets Better” Video

  • Secretary of State Hillary Clinton filmed an “It Gets Better” video in light of recent suicides by LGBT teens. Telling gay young adults “it gets better” might pack more of a punch if she actually supported gay marriage. But the sentiment, albeit hypocritical, is appreciated. [YouTube]

Finally: Lanvin For H&M’s First Look

We’ve been waiting with bated breath to get a glimpse of Lanvin’s highly anticipated collection for H&M. French Vogue released the first image from the ad campaign on its website this morning. Our initial impressions: this first look tells us that at least a significant part of the line will be devoted to evening attire, and we’re glad Alber Elbaz incorporated some classic Lanvin shapes and silhouettes (loving the voluminous one-shoulder dress on the left).
