J. Crew Adds 000 to Sizing; Nicolas Ghesquiere and Balenciaga Head to Court

And Lindsay Lohan may head back to court.

J.Crew Adds 000 Sizing: Talk about #thinspiration in the worst way possible. J. Crew has added an extremely small size to their pants selection—a 000. That’s a 23" waist.  While the preppy-loving, pint-sized tweens of the world will rejoice at the accommodating size, Racked points out just “how out of whack the brand’s vanity sizing has become” when dealing with the sizes of the average woman.

Nicolas Ghesquiere and Balenciaga Head to Court: When the French designer parted ways with his gig as creative director of Balenciaga in an $8 million “separation agreement,” part of the terms was that he “refrain from declarations that could hurt the image of Balenciaga.”  Now, the two are in court after the Louis Vuitton creative director told System magazine that his creativity had been “sucked dry” at his former position.

Lindsay Lohan Sues Grand Theft Auto Creators: Lindsay Lohan could be back in court; but this time as the accuser, and not the accused. On Wednesday, the starlet filed a complaint against Take-Two Interactive Software Inc, the creators of Grand Theft Auto V. According to the suit, the Mean Girls actress claims one of the game’s characters bares a striking resemblance to her appearance and even plays out story lines from her real life dramas, including her favorite former hotspot, L.A.'s Chateau Marmont.

From Public School and Thom Browne to Maison Martin Margiela and Givenchy, Complex compiled a history of the brands co-signed by Kanye West before they went mainstream. #Trendsetter. [Complex]
