First Lady Melania Trump on Friday channeled predecessor Jackie Kennedy as her husband took power, donning an elegant Ralph Lauren powder blue suit that won rave reviews — and helped silence her critics. The look won gushing praise and provoked comparisons with Kennedy, the wife of slain Democratic president John F. Kennedy who was considered to be one of America's most stylish first ladies. The fashion victory came one day after the Slovenian-born third wife of Donald Trump was widely thought to have been outshone by her stepdaughter Ivanka, who wore a cascading green Oscar de la Renta outfit on Thursday.

British fashion designer Dame Vivienne Westwood has designed a new tote bag in honor of the upcoming London Fashion Week Festival (LFWF). The style icon has teamed up with the British Fashion Council (BFC) on the project, which was inspired by her Autumn/Winter 2017/18 show ‘Ecotricity', which was unveiled in the UK capital earlier this month.

By Ellen Wulfhorst NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Lingerie giant Victoria's Secret, famed for its racy bras and thongs, has pledged to trace the sources of its wood-based fabrics, joining the ranks of fashion companies addressing human rights and deforestation, its parent company said. In a new policy statement, parent company L Brands said it aimed to eliminate sources of wood pulp, used to make rayon, viscose and modal, that contribute to rainforest destruction or violate the rights of local people. L Brands is the latest in a growing number of U.S. fashion companies to commit to investigate its supply chain for products from destructive regions and stop using those sources by the end of 2017, according to Rainforest Action Network (RAN).
