Fashion News Roundup: Clothes Made of Giant Rats, Hells Angels v. Alexander McQueen Settles, and GQ Has Even More Inappropriate Glee Footage

Rat Fashion Show? Leave it to Bushwick to host a fashion show featuring clothes made from Nutria: giant rodents that are actually OK to kill because they are destroying Louisiana's wetlands. Southern designer Billy Reid has also made garments out of Nutria, spurring a Guardian article earlier this year. Will Nutria be the next big trend? We're not too keen on the idea of wearing rodents but maybe that's just us. {Daily Intel} Oh, Hell No: If you bought an Alexander McQueen Hells Angels knuckle ring after seeing it in our roundup, you might have to send it back. The Hells Angels, who sued McQueen, Zappos and Saks over the ring and other products bearing their trademark, have settled on the condition that the defendants stop selling the products AND recall and destroy what has already been sold. Those Hells Angels mean business. {WWD}

Immediately following his crazy Ace Awards acceptance speech, Kanye West said, "Take me to Alber," with whom he then had a "deep conversation about fashion." {Page Six}

Attractive People in Love: Olivia Palermo and her bf star together in Mango's latest ad campaign. It's a little awk, dontchya think? {Elle}

Delusional Dov: Apparently Dov Charney's optimism knows no bounds. Not suprisingly, American Apparel's financial losses have continued, but Dov is still trying to hold onto his 53% stake in the company in lieu of welcoming outside investors. According to a source, he "wants to wait it out and is hoping the situation improves." Really, Dov? {NY Post}

Who is your beauty icon? Take this more fun version of a personality quiz (OK, those are fun too) and find out which celebrity's look you are subconsciously (or consciously) emulating. {College Fashion}

GQ Hearts Page Views: GQ has decided to capitalize on the attention (mostly negative) they've received regarding that kinda inappropriate Glee shoot. They plan to release behind-the-scenes footage on GQ.com because that will probably get them tons of web traffic (Apparently they got 33 million views the week those photos were posted). We just hope there's some Terry Richardson in that footage. {EW}
