Style stories to read during Victoria's Secret Fashion Show commercials.

Cara Delevingne faced a rare bout of social media backlash after she announced that she would be selling sweatshirts reading "The Future Is Female," modeled after a sweatshirt she wore in an Instagram post last month. The only problem? Otherwild, an independent L.A.-based retailer that originally sold the sweatshirt that Delevingne wore, called out the 23-year-old for copyright infringement. Many of the model-actress' own fans sided with Otherwild, noting that stealing the design from a "queer, feminist-owned" shop was ironically anti-feminist. [Yahoo Style]

Donna Karan's whirlwind of a year has not gone unnoticed. The fashion designer turned full-time philanthropist's career curveball has landed her a spot on Barbara Walters' The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2015 TV special, which will air on Dec. 17 on ABC. Karan is joined by the likes of Amy Schumer, Misty Copeland and Bernie Sanders. [WWD]
