USPS Is Making A "High-End" Fashion Line. Wut?

The United States Post Office is so strapped for cash it's creating its own clothing line of "smart apparel -- also known as wearable electronics."

Lindsay Lohan's up to her old tricks. Apparently she borrowed an expensive beaded gown for the amFAR gala and returned it cut in half. A source reported that she ripped it a little at a club the night before and completely cut out the part of the dress that had been ripped. To which we say, again: wut? [via Gawker]

LVMH bought a minority stake in young couturier Maxime Simoen's eponymous line, allowing him to show a women's ready-to-wear collection for the first time. It probably also means that LVMH plans to give him a Creative Director post at one of their larger houses down the line, so let's all make sure to remember his name. [via Fashionista]
