Style Notes: Emily Ratajkowski Embraces Women's Sexuality; Degrees in Fashion Law Now Exist
The fashionable cure for your case of the Mondays.
Model-turned-actress Emily Ratajkowski — of "Blurred Lines" and Gone Girl fame — has partnered with Planned Parenthood and Refinery29 to share her thoughts on everyone's favorite subject: safe sex. The 24-year-old advocates for the use of birth control in the new PSA and praises Planned Parenthood for making it available to all young women who seek it. [Refinery29]
In collaboration with Diane von Furstenberg and CFDA president Steven Kolb, Fordham University Provost Stephen Freedman and director of the university's Fashion Law Institute Susan Scafidi have created two new fashion law degrees — the first of their kind in the world. Students with a general law degree can now get a master's in fashion law, studying subjects like fashion financing, modeling law and licensing and sustainability. But those without a law degree can get in on the fun, too! A master of studies in law is perfect for industry professionals seeking to learn more about the rules governing their field. [Fashionista]
She's baked the cupcakes and now here comes the cashmere. Emily Schuman, founder of the uber-popular fashion and lifestyle blog Cupcakes and Cashmere, revealed today that she will be launching a 40-piece clothing collection of the same name this fall. The California-inspired line will retail between $80 and $180 and be available exclusively at Nordstrom and Shopbop. [Cupcakes and Cashmere]
Professional plaintiff Dov Charney is (surprise!) suing American Apparel. Again. This time, Charney is suing both the retailer and former board member David Danziger for defamation, claiming that both were responsible for irreparable damage to his name in the industry. The suit alleges that the board plotted to smear Charney by insinuating reports of criminal activity, which later resulted in his removal from the company. American Apparel is playing it cool at the moment, claiming that the suit is nothing more than "another example of the habitual nuisance lawsuits that Dov Charney and his lawyer continue to file, and which we continue to defeat."

The customizable collection features more than 100 pieces (each under $30) that can be mixed, matched, assembled and reassembled for countless unique looks. Campaign star Poppy Delevingne models a few of the sleek geometric pieces, which look perfect for a Coachella-inspired vacation. [Target]
