Fashion News: Red Ribbon Week observed

Aimed mostly at children and teens, the program encourages the wearing of red ribbons or other red articles to raise consciousness about the dangers of illegal drugs. The week dates from the Reagan Administration and was inspired by the murder in 1985 of drug enforcement agent Enriqué Camarena. [DEA]

Hudson Kroenig is only 3, but he's already the subject of an inside-the-closet profile on the Coveteur website. Why?
