At Sunday's Super Bowl, Beyonce wore costumes that incorporated leather and exotic iguana and snakeskin. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wishes she hadn't. And that she hadn't worn a fur coat to President Obama's inauguration in January, either. "We would take a bet that if Beyoncé watched our video exposés, she'd probably not want to be seen again in anything made of snakes, lizards, rabbits or other animals who died painfully," The organization reportedly said in a statement. "Today's fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyoncé's Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score." [The Cut]

Celebrities including Kelly Osbourne, Minka Kelly, Gabby Douglas, Kylie, Kendall and Kris Jenner walked in the annual Heart Truth Red Dress Show on Wednesday night in NYC to raise awareness about women's heart health. [Newsday]

PacSun is betting that its Kylie and Kendall Jenner collection -- poised to launch on Friday -- will bring twentysomething women back to the store. Which is kind of odd since the sisters are 15 and 17. [WWD]

"Project Runway" judge Zac Posen already has two fashion lines: an eponymous high-end label and an under-$200-per-piece contemporary line, Z Spoke. He announced this week a third label, Zac Zac Posen, to be priced in between the two and slated to launch for fall. [Styelite]

Fashion designer Cynthia Rowley -- who has famously designed disposable diapers, tweezers, bandages and other pedestrian items -- has now judged a packaging competition for Lysol. And Lysol threw a "pre-Fashion Week" party in New York to celebrate that, and its new "Touch of Foam" products. [The Cut] 

And designer Marc Jacobs has been named Diet Coke's "creative director" for 2013. That means he gets to work on some ads and on special packaging. In the ads, a shirtless Jacobs plays with a can of D.C. in a photo booth. His fashion royalty predecessors in the role include Karl Lagerfeld, Roberto Cavelli and Jean Paul Gaultier. [WWD]
