NewsFeed’s Feifei Sun rounds up the brilliant and bizarre from this week in fashion.
Three Makes a Trend. A shop has removed an “Anna Rexia” Halloween costume—a black dress featuring a skeleton image and measuring tape—from its website after criticism from eating disorder organizations. Can anyone explain why it’s so hard to design t-shirts without being offensive? [Village Voice]
Mandela as Fashion Muse. The humanitarian and former South African president is the inspiration behind a new clothing line called 46664, Mandela’s identification number while he was in prison. Though Mandela isn’t involved with the design of the clothing, a big name from the fashion world might be: Stella McCartney will reportedly become the brand’s first guest designer. [Fashionista]

Behold, Muppets Fashion. Opening Ceremony’s collection based on the Disney movie, set to hit theaters this Thanksgiving, is here! The retailer previously released a line in honor of the film release of Where the Wild Things Are. [Opening Ceremony]
Fur-Free West Hollywood. The California city has become the first in the United States to prohibit the sale of fur. So what will the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills do now? [Daily Mail]
