The fashion industry is buzzing over whether Versace copied the American Apparel T-shirt created by British-born designer Kesh. The Los Angeles based designer shared images from Versace’s spring / summer 2015 collection expressing her disgust over the obvious copy of her work which is currently selling out at Selfridges for $650 per T-shirt, two years after Kesh debuted her original high-fashion street version for less than $ 30 per T-shirt.

“This hurts,” Kesh said via Instagram, accompanied with a picture of the Versace version of the T-shirt on the Selfridges website. “$650 Versace rip off. Sold out in three sizes. What is this madness? From huge designer labels to small boutiques, to giant pop stars, to fame-hungry former friends. What is this? Why can’t these companies, these brands, these people create their own work? What happened? Why do these people think that everything that they lay their eyes on instantly belongs to them? At least make it better than the $30 original Versace,” she added. “This looks like a first draft.”

The original T-shirt designed by Kesh – who’s real name is Kesshia Kumari – was presented as artwork in a collaboration with American Apparel for their spring / summer 2013 collection.

Kesh’s representatives have confirmed that litigation will be the next step,”Kesh is absolutely going to sue”.  The offices of Versace had no comment.
So, what are you thoughts regarding this battle over design? Do you think that the T-shirts are similar? Let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment below.

The latest buzz at E! is that Khloe Kardashian & NeNe Leakes are being considered to replace Kelly Osbourne on Fashion Police and I am seriously questioning these options. First question: Why are the producers at E! considering Khole  Kardashian over Kim Kardashian? Kim  Kardashian may not be known for her humor, which seems to be a slight requirement for the show, but neither is Khloe. Kim is considered a Fashion icon and the show is ultimately about fashion so to me Kim makes the most sense to be Kelly’s replacement.

What are your thoughts? Do you think that Khloe Kardashian & NeNe Leakes are good options? Or do you agree with me that Kim Kardashian should also be considered?

30-year-old Osbourne threatened to quite Fashion Police after fellow co-host Giuliana Rancic made racial comments about Zendaya’s hair on the show. Rancic has since apologized for her remarks however this had little affect on Osbourne’s decision to resign from the show.

According to reports, Kelly had been at odds with producers since Joan Rivers death. Based on the Fashion Police website, Kelly was unhappy with the way the show was being handled after the comedienne’s passing.

“Kelly Osbourne is departing E!s Fashion Police to pursue other opportunities, and we would like to thank her for her many contributions to the series over the past five years, during which time the show became a hit with viewers. Fashion Police will return, as scheduled, on Friday, March 30th at 9:00 p.m. and no decisions have been made on her replacement.” – E! Entertainment

So, what are your thoughts? Do you think that there is more to this story? Or do you think that Kelly just had enough? Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.

Mirjana Puhar
“America’s Next Top Model” contestant Mirjana Puhar was killed on Tuesday in a triple homicide while at her boyfriend’s home in Charlotte, NC. Police have arrested 19-year-old Emmanuel Jesus Rangel and charged him with 3 counts of 1st degree murder.

The victims include 19 year old Mirjana Puhar, her boyfriend 23 year old Jonathan Alvarado and Alvarado’s roommate and best friend 21 year old Jusmar Gonzaga-Garcia. Mirjana moved into the apartment shared by her boyfriend and his roommate very shortly before the triple murder.

The bodies were found by the victims friends after gunshots were heard. The friends stated that the bodies of Mirjana and her boyfriend Jonathan were the first to be discovered and money was scattered around the house. 19-year-old Mirjana was the star of the 21st cycle of ‘ANTM’. Friends of Mirjana reveal that the young model was dating boyfriend Jonathan Alvarado for only a few months.

Law enforcement sources reveal that the preliminary investigation has lead police to believe that the murders were drug related — and the victims knew their killer.
