Patrick Couderc, the man who declared only stick-straight women should wear Hervé Leger’s band-aid dresses, has been fired.
Max Azria seems to be feeling pretty '70s for fall, at least in his BCBG Max Azria collection (the first to walk of the three brands he presents at New York Fashion Week, the others being Hervé Leger by Max Azria and Max Azria).
