Opening Ceremony Wants to Change the World With This Cotton T-shirt

There is nothing spectacular about a white cotton T-shirt. However, when printed with slogans or images, it’s a powerful means of expression. Capitalizing on this concept, Opening Ceremony and partner Cotton, Inc.are out to prove a T-shirt can change the world with its new The Most Powerful Tee. The unisex tee is customizable with a blank square printed in front and a fabric marker is included for the wearer to write their own message.

The vision of the collaboration is for wearers to have the freedom to express themselves by writing slogans or phrases they feel strongly about within the box. The T-shirt, then, is not just a collaboration between two companies but includes the wearer, as every tee becomes unique and personal.

The Most Powerful Tee is available at Opening Ceremony for $85.

Chrissy Metz, Susan Kelechi Watson and Mandy Moore Are Glamour’s November Cover Girls

After months of complaints from our forums, it appears Glamour is finally diluting its disastrous redesign, unveiled by editor-in-chief Samantha Barry back in April with the Melissa McCarthy cover. Since then, covers featuring the likes of Anne Hathaway, Kate McKinnon and Tiffany Haddish have fallen flat, until the Issa Rae cover last month started to show some slight signs of improvement. For November 2018, Glamour makes way for “This Is Us” stars Chrissy Metz, Susan Kelechi Watson and Mandy Moore for “The Future Issue,” shot by photographer Victor Demarchelier and styled by Alison Edmond.

Unlike last month, this cover did not appeal to our forum members. “The future looks bland,” slammed GERGIN upon checking out the cover.

“Very bland,” chimed in jal718.

“These days, this magazine just ticks as many boxes as possible, and then considers the job done,” tigerrouge added.

Kylie Jenner Is Being Sued Over Her “Born to Sparkle” Eyeshadow

This isn’t the first time makeup mogul and television personality Kylie Jenner has been faced with accusations and lawsuits regarding copyright or trademark infringements (see a full accounting here). This time, Jenner is being accused of stealing indie company Sheree Cosmetics’ slogan, “Born to Sparkle,” to name one of her liquid eyeshadow products and for copying the brand’s packaging.

According to The Fashion Law, the Sheree Born to Sparkle palette has been available since October 2017 and in August 2018, the brand filed a still-pending application to federally register the mark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Sheree stated that using the exact same tagline will likely confuse consumers and cause them “to believe they are buying the genuine, original BORN TO SPARKLE cosmetics from [Sheree Cosmetics].”

Sheree Cosmetics filed the lawsuit in federal court on October 22. There has been no comment made by Jenner or Kylie Cosmetics.

This is another issue we’ll be adding to our Porter collection…most of us, anyway. “This is glorious. Obsessed!!” said forum member happycanadian upon checking out the cover.

“Oh yeah, here for this,” voiced Miss Dalloway.

“Me too! I am loving how it resembles those fantastic covers Lucy Yeomans would give us at British Harper’s Bazaar. This really does feel like a perfect cover for this time of the year, and those colors are gorgeous,” pointed out vogue28.
