PARIS — The possibility of a burka ban by the French government met mixed reactions Tuesday from fashion players.
Some — including Marigay McKee, fashion and beauty director at Harrods, owned by Mohamed Al Fayed (who also owns the Ritz hotel in Paris) — believe banning the garment could have a detrimental effect on French business. That could especially be the case for top-end hotels, many of which are owned or frequented by Arabs, and for bastions of the luxury trade.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
