Crackdowns On Miniskirts And Prom Dresses, Gucci And Guess Go to Court, And More…


Emilio Pucci vice president and image director Laudomia Pucci (left) is set to be named a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Art et des Lettres (Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters) by French culture minister Frédéric Mitterrand today. In a statement, Pucci says, “I’m really happy to receive this award, which for me represents a big stimulus.” [WWD]

How mini is too mini? Although Indonesia is still establishing the criteria for what constitutes “porn crime,” Indonesian religious affairs minister Suryadharma Ali has dubbed miniskirts as pornographic and proposed a ban on them. [Vogue U.K.]

Speaking of dress code regulation, The Wall Street Journal reports that high schools in the U.S. are increasingly saying “no” to prom dresses their students are picking out. Reportedly, schools around the country are rolling out “elaborate dress codes” in an effort to cut out the plunging necklines and hiked-up hems they find inappropriate for a school dance. [WSJ]

Gucci has accused Guess of infringing on its G designs. The infringement claim was reportedly taken up in court today in New York, and Gucci is seeking over $124 million in damages for the imitations of its trademarks by Guess. [Telegraph]
