The Amber Alert News Roundup: Vogue Announces Era of the Booty, Serena Williams Presents During NYFW, Kate Moss Stars in Gucci Short Film & The Brooklyn Museum Opens 'Killer Heels' Exhibit

While some were up in arms over the content of a recent 'Vogue' article on the omnipresence of the "big booty," I'd have to agree that we've become quite obsessed with them.  There was a time where the fashion industry frowned upon a voluptuous derrière and pop culture was all about huge boobs and toned abs.  With the help of Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea things have definitely changed!

Fresh off her sixth U.S. Open win, Serena Williams debuted her new clothing line with HSN which she describes as "toned down Dior."  The collection, which was presented during New York Fashion Week, featured plenty of bold colors, animal prints and faux leather with none other than Anna Wintour sitting front and center.

Kate Moss stars in a new short film by Gucci featuring the brand's 'Jackie' handbag as well as other items from the F/W 2014 collection.  Riccardo Ruini worked as creative director while Anders Hallberg directed the film. (Fashion Gone Rogue)

The Brooklyn Museum has an interesting new exhibit, "Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe," which opens today.  The exhibit explores the high-heeled shoe’s rich and varied history and its enduring place in our popular imagination.  Deadly sharp stilettos, architecturally inspired wedges and platforms, and a number of artfully crafted shoes that defy categorization are featured among the more than 160 historical and contemporary heels on loan from designers.
