    “Launched into the spotlight *parsecs* after designing Michelle Obama’s dress?” So Jason Wu’s launch to the spotlight occurred (per Google) about 31 trillion kilometers behind the Inaugural Ball? I guess he’s the first human to reach that far into space. Pretty amazing that he’s able to be at the top of the field as both an astronaut (literally! He’s gone interstellar!) and as a fashion designer. ;o)

    That Rag and Bone blurb is just a paraphrase of their website’s claim, which says “Whenever possible, the majority” is made in the U.S. Guess what? It’s always possible, but that claim promises nothing at all.
