Two Big-Name Fashion Designers Reveal F**k Trump Dresses

Talk about a fashion statement


There’s an old and overused fashion axiom that says: Never wear white after Labor Day. But a new fashion trend says it’s perfectly fine to wear a dress that says “F**k Trump” between Labor Day and Election Day, no matter what the color. Recently, two big-name fashion designers revealed their latest dresses with the same exact two-word message for the Republican nominee, and they couldn’t have come at a better time.

Yesterday, during New York Fashion Week, the R13 label debuted a new line which featured several models wearing dresses with “F**k Trump” scrawled on them. The line also featured skinny jeans with the same sentiment as well. “It was an idea that came up very spontaneously and it felt right, so we explored it,” Chris Leba, the label’s designer, told Refinery29. “We felt strongly that we didn’t want Trump to be our president and thought it was important to voice that,” Leba said.

After the dress made its debut, the label released a #sorrynotsorry message to the Republican presidential nominee on its Instagram page.

Last month, deep in the heart of Texas, fashion designer and former Project Runway designer Rey Ortiz unveiled a shiny black-and-gold number with “F**k Trump” boldly emblazoned across the front. The dress made its debut in front of a pumped up crowd at the WERK fashion show during Austin Pride. “We need to use every last resource to keep people like him away from our society’s future,” Rey told Fop. “It was a message from the heart and I know it matched what some Americans won’t can’t say easily. So yeah, f**k all things Trump. He is a mess!”

Some beauty pageants, like the Miss America competition, have done away with the swimsuit portions of the competitions, thus dipping their toes in the 21st century. Other aspects of beauty pageants remain stuck in the 1950s, and we're not even talking about the whole "judging women mostly on their looks" thing. One beauty pageant winner was disqualified for being a mom, as if you can't be beautiful after you've had a kid. Now she's trying to get the Miss World competition to update their rules.

Veronika Didusenko won the Miss Ukraine pageant in 2018. After four days, she was disqualified because pageant officials found out she was a mom to 5-year-old son Alex, and had been married. Didusenko said she had been aware of Miss World's rule barring mother from competing, but was encouraged to compete anyways by pageant organizers.

One mystery in our universe is a step closer to being solved. NASA's Parker Solar Probe launched last year to help scientists understand the sun. Now, it has returned its first findings. Four papers were published in the journal Nature detailing the findings of Parker's first two flybys. It's one small step for a solar probe, one giant leap for mankind.



It is astounding that we've advanced to the point where we've managed to build a probe capable of flying within 15 million miles from the surface of the sun, but here we are. Parker can withstand temperatures of up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit and travels at 430,000 miles per hour. It's the fastest human-made vehicle, and no other human-made object has been so close to the sun.

Since the mid '90s the phrase "God Forgives, Brothers Don't" has been part of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point's football team's lexicon.

Over the past few years, the team has taken the field flying a black skull-and-crossbones flag with an acronym for the phrase, "GFBD" on the skull's upper lip. Supporters of the team also use it on social media as #GFBD.
