NEW YORK (AP) — Donna Karan introduced her famous Seven Easy Pieces in 1985, as she was introducing the world to her namesake label. Based on a black bodysuit with simple added pieces like a wrap skirt, classic trousers, or a suede jacket, it was a lot more than a convenient wardrobe: It was a conceptual shift in fashion. Karan was trying to tell women working women that clothes could work for them, and not the other way around. And that they didn't need to wear buttoned-up suits to look professional.

British singer P. J. Harvey released her first book of poetry on her 46th birthday on Friday -- based on journeys to Afghanistan, Kosovo and the United States. The book, entitled "The Hollow of the Hand", is a collaboration with photographer Seamus Murphy and is based on travels between 2011 and 2014. "Gathering information from secondary sources felt too far removed for what I was trying to write about," Harvey said in a statement released by the book's publishers, Bloomsbury.
