Fashion: Jennifer Lawrence dresses like Katniss at 'Games' event
Jennifer Lawrence seemed to really channel Katniss Everdeen, her character in "The Hunger Games," in the dress she wore to sign autographs for fans in Madrid on Monday. The color-blocked dress in rather drab tones of gray, blue and green looked like one a hunter might wear for camouflage in the forest. Only the shoes make it clear that she's going to be walking on a red carpet, not through the woods.
Khloe Kardashian, who once posed nude for a PETA ad, has dropped her support for the animal rights organization after the group spoke out in support of the "flour-bombing" last week of sister Kim. According to TMZ, the woman who doused Kim with flour is a longtime militant member of PETA. On her blog, Khloe says, "I will still continue to NOT wear fur, but I will no longer support PETA. Bullying and harassment is NEVER a solution, and I won’t be a part of any organization that thinks otherwise." [People]
"Game of Thrones" costume designer Michele Clapton must be awfully busy designing all the armor, garments made of animal skins, gowns and other trappings that earned her an Emmy nomination for the show, which returns for its second season on Sunday. She's so busy she says she didn't know until the Los Angeles Times told her that Helmut Lang used "Game of Thrones" as his inspiration for his fall 2012 collection. "I’m really flattered because Helmut Lang’s a great label and I admire their work," she said in an interview with Jasmine Elist. "I come from a fashion background myself and I remember in the past saying, “You know, we could really make a great collection from these costumes.” [Los Angeles Times]
Writer Dara-Lynn Weiss has a controversial article in this month's Vogue about putting her 7-year-old daughter on a year-long weight loss diet.

But now Weiss has landed a deal with Random House to turn it into a memoir to be titled "The Heavy" -- and leading to more criticism that she is profiting at a child's expense. [The Cut]
