  • Animal rights charity Peta is best known for its naked anti-fur stunts, but these days it is more worried about wool.

  • The sisters behind Rodarte launch their first film, Woodshock, starring Kirsten Dunst.

  • The clothing found in Dunst’s new film, Woodshock, won’t inspire legions of imitators, but it’s already a moment in fashion history. It was written and directed by Laura and Kate Mulleavy, the sisters behind the cult clothing label Rodarte, an object of obsession for many of the same people who love those Coppola movies. Woodshock, out today, centers on Theresa, a woman who works in a medical marijuana dispensary in California, and helps her mother die via some unnamed drug. Theresa is thrown into a world of grief and isolation; she does a lot of hallucinogens and wanders the redwood forest. From Racked -
