April 22, 2011 |  9:14 am

Angelina Jolie Friday is Earth Day, a celebration of all things eco, and the fashion and beauty world don't want to be left out of the party. Chloë Sevigny and Alicia Silverstone are among the celebs on the bandwagon. [People] A growing number of independent companies are recycling clothing into new, one-of-a-kind pieces. Staff writer Susan Carpenter reports on one of them, Revigor.

"American Apparel"..... read those words and you may be thinking: Scantily Clad Models ... or .... Troubled Company. Well, retailer Dov Charney has grabbed onto a lifeline, avoiding a potential bankruptcy, at least for now. [WWD, subscription required]

 Tom Ford has been listed as one world's 100 most influential people by Time magazine. [People]

Jimmy Choo is not officially up for sale. But that hasn't stopped press reports that Tamara Mellon is talking to folks about possibly purchasing a majority stake in the company. [WWD, subscription required]

And, OMG, you'll want to ponder this over the weekend:  Kate Middleton has reportedly decided to do her own makeup for her April 29 wedding. End of Western Civilization? You decide. [Stylelist]
