Patricia Field Calls Out Madonna For Stolen Design
Patricia Field, known for her work as costume designer on “Sex and the City,” is calling out Madonna for stealing one of her signature styles. Field accused Madonna of selling copies of her “VOGUE” snapback hats as part of her MDNA Tour merchandise. The baseball caps were sold at Madison Square Garden at a Madonna concert for $35 each.
On Patricia Field’s website, you can find “‘The Original’ VOGUE Snapback Cap” retailing for $36, described as “An homage to the urban dance style of 1980s known as ‘Vogueing’, this House of Field exclusive brings New York City Ball culture back to the forefront again, as recently seen on the Queen of Vogue herself!”
Miss Universe Organization Signs Fragrance License
Expanding beyond pageantry, the Miss Universe Organization has signed a fragrance license with Neil J. Katz and his Omni Scents organization. A trio of women’s scents, set to launch in August, will be available. The scents, inspired by the Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA contests, will be the first of an annual series of fragrances.
Focusing on “modern perceptions of beauty,” the global release will be the first license to launch from Omni Scents, Katz said. “Miss Universe fragrance collection will, we believe, resonate with women all over the globe who look to each contestant as a representative of what every girl dreams of becoming — beautiful, talented, a winner in every sense,” said the Omni Scents founder and president. “Truly, this is a fragrance concept that captures aspirational glamour, as it appeals to every girl who wants to feel confidently beautiful.”
