Givenchy faces backlash for noose necklace at Paris fashion show

After a truly head-scratching choice on the runway, Givenchy is now facing backlash for featuring a noose necklace at a Paris Fashion show.

Naomi Campbell Steals Lanvin Show At Paris Fashion Week

PARIS (AP) — Yet again, Naomi Campbell stole the show at Paris Fashion Week. The 51-year-old runway veteran trod the boards of Lanvin’s flower-themed collection Sunday to screams from guests in a dramatic black cloak.
