She attended Friday festivities wearing patriotic colors. 

But many people criticized Conway's outfit.

Trump's former campaign manager and current senior adviser was dressed in a red, white and blue coat. She described the outfit as "Trump revoluntionary wear."

Someone found the $3,600 Gucci coat online, and one social media user pointed out that the product's description online notes the coat's design was inspired by the city of London.

Man knits sweaters of landmarks, poses in them at landmarks

Why buy a postcard when you could knit a sweater? That’s the motto of Sam Barsky, a Baltimore artist who specializes in “knitting sweaters and other items with pictorial designs,” according to his website.

He became a viral sensation this week after the website imgur.com featured a gallery of his creations, which included Barksy proudly showing off his themed sweaters in front of famous travel landmarks including Times Square, the U.S. Capitol, Niagara Falls, the Shedd Aquarium and, my personal favorite, Stonehenge.

Barksy has already received interview requests from Jimmy Kimmel and the BBC, but judging by his Facebook page, he’s handling his 15 minutes of fame with grace.

“Just to let everyone know, I really love all my fans,” he wrote this week. “In the past day, as most of you know, my publicity has exploded exponentially worldwide. I have a flood of messages and requests for interviews that I have received. I want to answer each one personally. It is just so many that I can’t get to them all in one day.”

This guy makes sweaters of places and then takes pictures of himself wearing the sweaters at those places.

Check out his Facebook page for more photos of his “sweaters in places” as well as updates on his dinner (gluten-free vegetable lo mein with imitation shrimp) and the occasional joke (ex: “How do animal rescues determine which animals are safe and healthy enough to be pets?… They ‘vet’ them.”).

Looks like Barsky has been to Texas before — here he is in his Palo Duro Canyon sweater:

Here’s hoping Barsky has an Austin visit in the works — we think he would look fantastic in a bat-, Longhorn- or taco-themed creation. Regardless, thank you, sir, for making the world a brighter place with your amazing sweaters.

Pantone announces 'Greenery' as 2017 color of the year

Pantone, known for its innovative work in color and design, has named "Greenery" its 2017 color of the year.

"This particular green is an unusual color: a combination of yellow and blue, or warmth and a certain cool," Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, told The New York Times. "It's a complex marriage."

The company describes the color as a "fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature's greens revive, restore and renew." The company also said that it "symbolizes (the) reconnection we seek with nature."

"We've been seeing the greens building and building as we've had this desire to reconnect to nature and immerse ourselves in the physical beauty of the natural world as we're sitting there tethered to our devices," Laurie Pressman, Pantone Color Institute vice president, told CBS News.

Pressman said Greenery "signals vitality, energy and warmth from the sun" and that it represents rebirth and regeneration. The color also reflects a growing movement to protect nature.

"We're more conscious about the environment and protecting the planet," she told CNN

Eiseman said the color also reflects optimism for the future.

"This is the color of hopefulness, and of our connection to nature. It speaks to what we call the 're' words: regenerate, refresh, revitalize, renew," she said. "Every spring we enter a new cycle and new shoots come from the ground. It is something life-affirming to look forward to."

Pantone's team, which began selecting a color of the year in 2000, spends about nine months each year studying trends in fashion and products, social media and societal attitudes to pick a color that reflects those aspects. 

"We're (even) looking at street art, animation, architecture, movies and headphones," Pressman said. "We capture a snapshot of what's being expressed through color." 

The color of the year is said to be selected using instinct more than science, The New York Times reported.

Pantone named two colors the color of the year for 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity.

Ivanka Trump under fire for peddling $10,000 bracelet worn on '60 Minutes'

Soon-to-be first daughter Ivanka Trump is coming under fire for mixing business and politics.

After her appearance on “60 Minutes” last weekend, Trump's brand sent out a message to reporters, urging them to mention the bracelet she was wearing, which costs $10,800, according to The New York Times. Katie Rosman, a style reporter for the Times, grabbed a screenshot of the email.

"This notification was sent by a well-intentioned marketing employee at one of our companies who was following customary protocol, and who, like many of us, is still making adjustments post-election," Abigail Klem, president of Trump's brand, told the Times. "We are proactively discussing new policies and procedures with all of our partners going forward."

Brands often send memos to journalists after award shows, but some are questioning whether it is ethical for Trump to use politics to boost her business. Similar concerns emerged after her speech at the Republican National Convention, when the dress she wore sold out the next day after her brand urged Twitter followers to "shop Ivanka's look."
