The Amber Alert News Roundup: Nine West Posts Controversial Ad, Cara Delevingne & Jourdan Dunn Get Matching Tattoos, Roland Mouret x Banana Republic Revealed & Lorde Curates Soundtrack for 'The Hunger Games'


Nine West might be known for its shoes, but the company's latest ad campaign is what's currently making headlines.  The controversial ad features a closeup of a pair of leopard print heels with a bullseye target and the tagline “Starter Husband Hunting”.  On Facebook the image was posted with a caption that reads: “It’s hunting season. Whether you’re looking for Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now, we have a shoe for that.”  With many lamenting the ad as being sexist, outdated and offensive one has to wonder if they'll be pulled.

For the latest installment of 'Well Dunn', Jourdan Dunn's cooking show on Jay Z's lifestyle site, cameras follow Jourdan and bestie Cara Delevingne as they get matching tattoos in NYC.  Inked by popular celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang, the ladies each get the letters "DD" tatted on their hip, which Jourdan says represents the double Ds in their surnames.  Who knew?

Roland Mouret's capsule collection with Banana Republic has been revealed and as expected, the pieces are classically chic and timeless.  With prices ranging from $49.50 to $165.00 they won't break the bank either!  The limited edition collection goes on sale August 7. (Vogue)

17 year old phenom, Lorde is slated to release the first single for 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1', as well as curate the entire soundtrack.  The film's director, Frances Lawrence stated Lorde's "immense talent and keen understanding of Mockingjay’s characters and themes not only have enabled her to create a song of her own that completely captures the film’s essence, but her insight and passion for our project make her the perfect creative force to assemble the other songs on our soundtrack."  She's having quite the year!
