NewsFeed’s Feifei Sun rounds up the brilliant and bizarre from this week in fashion.
Blood Perfume. Blood Concept is releasing four perfumes—A, B, AB, O—that are inspired by the red stuff in our veins. And yes, you’ll get a whiff of blood in these unisex scents. [Blood Concept]
More Middleton Mania. Whistles has re-released the cream silk blouse that Kate Middleton wore in the more casual of her engagement photos, and fittingly renamed it the “Kate Blouse.” So, for £125, you, too, can look like a future princess. Just don’t wait too long, since these items tend to sell out almost overnight. [Telegraph]
If It Ain’t Broke… Kotex has teamed up Patricia Field, the costume designer for Sex and the City, to launch a contest to redesign the maxi pad. Three winning designers will work with Field later this year to bring some fashion flair to the feminine care product. [Styleite]
The Devil Wears Prada. So do Gwen Stefani, Tina Fey, Hailee Steinfeld and Amanda Seyfried. All four women have been photographed in Prada’s bright, striped dress, which doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. Kind of like last year’s floral gown by Miu Miu, which appeared on more than seven magazine covers. [Chictopia]
Beauty for a Cause. Makeup guru Bobbi Brown created a makeup set for Dress for Success, a nonprofit that helps low-income women build their careers by providing professional clothing and interview skills. All proceeds from the kit, which is sold at Macy’s, will be donated to the group. [Style]
