Abercrombie & Fitch under fire for kids’ bikinis.
Luxury brand Abercrombie and Fitch’s childrenswear line, Abercrombie Kids has come under fire this week, following the sale of their bikini tops. The chindrenswear label is aimed at girls and boys between the ages of 7 and 14, and their Ashley Triangle Top is not only padded but, according to Abercrombie’s site, advertised as a push up. An internet poll showed 91% out of thousands polled deemed it in appropriate. Perhaps it would make more sense to have the age range cut off at 12 years old, and have Abercrombie Kids focussed solely on the ages of 7-12, keeping the bikini range solely for their older consumers.

Rachel Zoe gives birth to a baby boy
Only a few days ago celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe was spotted, nine months pregnant rocking a pair of fiercely high Brian Atwood heels, and, just a matter of days later on Tuesday, she went into labour giving birth to a little boy. Rachel tweeted: ” “Thank you all so much for your love! @rbermanus and I couldn’t be happier with little Skyler Morrison in our arms…he is everything. XoRZ”. Congrats!

Yet another sexual harassment case brought against American Apparel’s Dov Charney
A second employee has come forward this week claiming that she was also subjected to sexual harassment by American Apparel’s Dov Charney. In the suit, which was filed on Wednesday, Kimbra Lo claims that Charney invited the 19 year old to his home, to discuss her being rehired as a photographer and model, however, once she arrived at his home Charney allegedly went on to undress her and attempt to have sex with her and take pictures.  The lawsuit also cited three other employees, however the details of their complaints weren’t listed as they signed confidentiality agreements with AA. Lawyer Eric Baum said in a statement he did not believe the agreements are enforceable. 

Avon brand ambassador Reese Witherspoon wants you to smell good, so much so that she’s launching three new fragrances for the beauty brand.

The trio of scents that Reese helped develop include: Live (fruity and floral), Laugh (citrus tea) and Love (floral oriental).

No word on price, but each perfume will roll out separately in April, May and August.

Abercrombie & Fitch‘s kids label Abercrombie Kids have moms up in arms over their bikini tops.

According to the site’s description, the Ashley triangle top is not only padded, but advertised as a push up.

Keep in mind Abercrombie Kids is aimed at girls and boys between the ages of 7 and 14.

One mommy blogger went off on parenting website Babble, writing:

…Even the use of the word ‘push up’ is unbelievably inappropriate. The push up bra is, effectively, a sex tool, designed to push the breasts up and out, putting them front and center where they’re more accessible to the eye (and everything else). How is this okay for a second-grader?

Playing at sexy is an inevitable and important part of growing up. But there’s a difference between exploring these ideas on your own and having them sold to you in a children’s catalog. Right now, somewhere in the world, a girl is shopping at Abercrombie kids and getting the message that her breasts might need a little help. Why not start now, with a push up bikini made special for you?

She makes a lot of good points.

Tell us what U think!
