In CRAZY fashion crime news, a drug bust in Alaska leads to a wedding dress runway show in Atlanta (this one is a doozy, guys!). Also, Oprah’s Magazine is in trouble after telling women they have to be thin to wear a crop top (#RocktheCrop), a bra company is making lingerie in colors that match all skin types, and MAC is opening baller beauty bars.
