Jean-Claude Van Damme unwittingly aids in jewelry heist

Jean-Claude Van Damme seemed to be an accessory to a crime through no fault of his own… and without even knowing it.

Earlier this week, the action star was reportedly visiting an eye wear store in Paris. Unbeknownst to Jean-Claude, at the same time he was at the optician, a crook was robbing a nearby jeweler, to the tune of about $3.5 million in jewels.

What makes the job truly exciting, several designers say, is watching an everyday person smile when they put on an outfit you created that makes them feel confident.

Can Stella McCartney Clean Up Fashion? | BoF Professional, News & Analysis

“We are literally getting away with murder,” Stella McCartney said through her computer screen. A week earlier, she’d delivered this message to a group of the world’s most powerful leaders at the G7 summit in Cornwall, England.

The designer’s pitch was simple: government regulators and policy-makers need to stop giving fashion a pass. Instead, they should treat it like the automotive sector or any other big, heavily polluting industry, with tougher oversight and stronger incentives to reduce environmental impact.

“There needs to be policies set in place to police our industry,” McCartney said. “Certainly the industry has fallen short …
