NewsBites: Jigga’s Fashion Forward, Uniqlo Brings in the Cake, Taxing Health Insurance, More Fashion Controversy, and Get Organized at Saks!

Jigga’s looking mighty fashionable in the February issue of Interview Magazine. Read the excerpts to hear why The Blueprint 3 is the hardest thing he’s done to date, and what’s next (if anything) for Hip Hop. [Interview]                                Ever wonder who Japan’s billionaires are? Meet the richest one: Tadashi Yanai. Owner of Uniqlo and stylemaven himself is apparently worth approximately 9.2 billion. What’s next for Yanai? “I’d love to buy the Gap.” [StyleList]

Looks like the White House may have come to an agreement with labor unions regarding health care taxes. As part of the deal, insurance policies that cost more than what’s deemed average ($23,000 for family plans, $8,500 for individuals) would be subjected to a 40% surtax. Could this mean we’re a little closer to health care legislation? [WashPo]

In an H&M do-over, the New York City Police Department is presumably also destroying clothes. All of those fakes that get seized? Industrial shredder. In the wake of what’s going on around the world, it may be time to rethink this practice. [NYT]

If your makeup bag looks anything like mine, you may consider heading over to Saks this weekend. The Fifth Avenue location is offering free consultations on what’s hot (and not) amidst your cosmetic clutter. [Saks]
