Laser removal was always enough to deter me from getting a tattoo, but now my thoughts on the whole process might change knowing that I can grow my own skin to cover them up when I'm sick of them, which is what Pharrell Williams is going to do to cover up his ink.  I'll gladly let him be the guinea pig of the procedure first.

While everyone took a keen note or two on the clothes coming down the runways in Europe, the detail oriented also sought out the fabulous footwear that was carrying those clothes on the catwalk. [Material Interest]

In case anyone cares, here's a tidy play by play of Stockholm Fashion Week. [Hint]

Karl Lagerfeld's body guard, Sébastien Jondeau (and arm candy if there ever was some), escorted him for his couture show bow wearing the bright yellow safety vest Lagerfeld himself wore in the French road-safety campaigns that popped up last month.  I can hear Karl now, "buckle up, beetches."

It's no longer enough to simply declare your fashion label eco-friendly; this fall, two companies are launching garment traceability and
corporate transparency initiatives through their web sites, allowing
consumers to track the production process of their garments.  I love the planet and all, but like I have time to sit and make sure my organic cotton shirt is being sewn together by legal workers with environmentally safe thread.  Save that for those Greenpeace wacks. [WWD]
