Fashion News Roundup: Fascinators and Mini Skirts Get Banned from Royal Ascot, J.Crew's CEO Mickey Drexler Doesn't Like Shopping Malls, and Taylor Swift's Frenemy Speaks Now

Fascinators Banned from June's Royal Ascot: The Royal Ascot in Britain is cracking down on fascinators, cleavage, and, well... crack. A new, more clearly stated dress code is now officially in place for the event in an effort to swing it from chavy to classy: Strapless tops and above-the-knee hems are banned. Fancy fascinators will only be allowed in the grandstand areas; whereas the royal enclosure (aka the big boy seats) will allow only hats and headpieces that cover at least 4" of the head at the base. Look out for K-Mid sporting the latest fad, hat-hair. {Fashion Foie Gras} Justin Bieber Goes Brunette: Speaking of Duchess Kate: Clearly the latest casualty of the "Kate Middleton Effect," baby Biebs has hit the brunette bottle. Now he'll definitely be taken more seriously as an artist. Definitely. {US Weekly} Just How Does Sarah Jaxheimer Do It? She has a cool group of friends, her hair is always shiny and awesome, and she dated the boy Taylor Swift crushed on in junior high. Check out Pop Dust's exclusive and insanely hilarious interview with the elusive Sarah Jax, who may or may not be the mean girl in all of Swifty's sad songs. {Pop Dust}

Mickey Drexler Doesn't Like Malls, But Young Shoppers Do: J.Crew CEO Mickey Drexler reportedly complained that the "pungent odors" of malls detracts from the overall shopping experience. Meanwhile, a recent poll shows that most 18-25 actually prefer shopping in stores (as opposed to online), using it as an excuse to be social. While there's no doubt that today's shopping centers have a very different vibe from the Mall Rats era, sometimes you just need to stop for an arcade game or Orange Julius on your way to J.Crew. And who didn't fantasize about being locked overnight in a mall? Let's keep the dream alive, Mickey. {Lucky, Refinery29}

Jay-Z Lays Off Workers In Time for Baby Blue's Arrival: Looks like Blue Ivy won't be receiving baby gifts from 28 staffers in daddy Jay-Z's Rocawear camp, who were all laid off just one day prior to the Chosen One's birth due to "economic reasons." Since Jay might need reminding of what "50 grand is to a mother-effer like [him]," we'll explain: It's a whole lot to some other people who are suddenly without jobs. {Jezebel}

Need Some Winter Style Inspo? As we've said (/whined) before, it's really cold out. What better excuse to bundle up in style like Julie Christie in Doctor Zhivago, or channel the classic Ali McGraw in Love Story look? {FabSugar}
