Designer Stella McCartney's new clothing line hits stores in November, but this fall fashion offering comes with a twist: the line, produced with Gap Kids and Baby Gap, is aimed at the eco-friendly weehuggers in your life. So what should you expect?The line is leather and fur free, though the mother of three did use wool. Blankets, military jackets, and sweaters come with pricetags ranging from $14-$128--and a focus on sturdy, practical construction. "Perfect little kids are not really very me," she says. "I wanted to have a big of realness. When you're talking about this kind of accessibility and children it's really important that you feel comfortable throwing the lot of it in the washing machine and not being too precious with it."

Alicia Silverstone's Accidental Dairy
With the release this week of her new book, The Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet, actress Alicia SIlverstone chatted up her vegan lifestyle with the New York Post--while bringing her own water bottle and coffee cup to the photo shoot. "I had a dairy few weeks ago by accident and I knew because the next day I was all phlegmy," she said. "And I was farting and it was gross. And then I knew. It was dairy." So what are her diet guidelines? "The difference to me is that there are nasty foods and kind foods," she says. "Foods that are nasty literally are aging you and depleting you--meat, dairy, sugar, processed foods."
Tilda Swinton Takes on Trump
In 2008, Scotland gave Donald Trump permission to expand his empire by building a billion-dollar golf course and hotel on an "environmentally sensitive" piece of the Aberdeenshire coast; now, actress Tilda Swinton, who owns land in next-door Moray county, has added her name to a petition against the development, which would force the eviction of four residents in the disputed area. Trump's representative says Swinton is "'ill-informed' and siding with 'extremists'." Meanwhile, the Scottish Natural Heritage office retains approval over the course, making sure that the rare plants and animals in the area are protected. (Via The Mirror)
