What would Meryl Streep's editrix in The Devil Wears Prada wear if there were no more Prada? Hopefully we won't find out: New reports say Prada is $1.4 billion in debt. Now, Miuccia Prada and her husband, who own 95-percent of the brand, are considering selling shares and going public. Will this change the iconic house of Prada? Guess you'll just have to wait and see.

Toms shoes has a cult and celebrity following—Kristen Stewart and Liv Tyler are fans. For every pair of comfy, casual slip ons sold, a portion goes to charity. The team at Skechers are apparently also fans of Toms: The brand has released their own, almost identicle and similarly charitable, brand called Bobs. Social responsibility is a great thing, but it doesn't seem as nice when you're ripping off a smaller company to do so.

Now, the company has issued a statement calling the change an attempt at crowdsourcing—meaning Gap will tap consumers to help redesign the logo. Sure, whatever they say.
