And They Said Kanye Didn't Have Fashion Influence

Then how do you explain these Zara looks, huh?

(West has been levied with charges of copying designers from Margiela to Helmut Lang, but turnabout is fair play.) We've reached out to a Zara rep for comment and will update this when we hear back.

Back in January, Amber Coffman of the band Dirty Projectors recounted an incident of sexual misconduct made several years prior by Heathcliff Berru, a noted publicist in the music industry. Other women soon came forward to share their experiences with Berru, including Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino, who tweeted in response to Coffman: "Good for you for doing this. I was too freaked out to ever say anything. Seriously he's not a good person on any level." Stopping by The Daily Show last night, Cosentino used the opportunity to discuss how she became the "spokesperson" for the Berru backlash — he has since stepped down as the CEO of Life or Death PR — as well as the prominence of sexual assault and sexism in the music industry.
