Recently, fashion-forward actress Selma Blair praised H&M for pulling in some top designer collaborations.

"Have I loved all the H&M collections? Yeah, especially Versace - to get that much oomph at H&M is wonderful," she told Look magazine.

"They're all incredible. I'm all for that high/low thing, letting everyone get access to designers. For someone like Margiela to design for H&M is like, crazyballs to me!”
