• The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Beyoncé Releases Teaser Vid for ‘Grown Woman,’ Oscar de la Renta Joins The Outnet for Second Collab, and Mike Jeffries Renews Abercrombie Contract

    • HEAR YE, HEAR YE: After nearly a year of not really releasing any actual new music teasing us with morsels of new music, Beyoncé is finally giving us hope that we could see an actual album from her with the release of this teaser video for “Grown Woman.” The singer debuted the track on her Mrs. Carter World Tour show months ago, and now, it looks like that song will actually be released as a single. Or maybe not. Watch a raven-haired Beyoncé pop her body to tribal-themed beats, along with cameos from Kelly Rowland and the ultimate grown woman– Mama Tina Knowles. (Global Grind)


    Miranda Kerr opens up to Harper’s Bazaar Australia about her split with hubby of three years Orlando Bloom, announced in October. Although the couple couldn’t reconcile their differences, Kerr says that she and Bloom are keeping things friendly for the sake of their two-year-old son, Flynn“It’s difficult for anyone to go through a separation, whether it’s on a public scale or not,” she said. “It was important for us long-term to preserve our friendship and the dynamic of being loving parents to Flynn so we dealt with everything openly and honestly…We respect each other and with respect comes understanding. When there’s understanding, I guess everything is a little more harmonious…We’re still very big parts of each other’s lives. There’s no reason for us to be anything but a united front. We still love and care for each other deeply.” (Daily Mail)


    • It looks like Mike Jeffries‘s days at the helm of the Abercrombie company may soon be over. WWD reports that Abercrombie & Fitch has extended Jeffries’s contract, but there are plans to slowly phase the 69-year-old CEO out. Jeffries was responsible for the rebranding of the preppy label, but with declining sales across all Abercrombie brands– that includes Hollister and the now-defunct Gilly Hicks, it’s clear that the company is in need of some new leadership.“Today’s announcement is the result of an extensive review by the board and detailed discussion with shareholders over several months, and the specific terms of Mike’s new contract reflect direct feedback from those discussions,” said Craig Stapleton, lead independent director. “The new agreement employs a more simplified, performance-based compensation structure that is design to align incentives closely with the success of the company and the interests of shareholders.” Jeffries will receive $1.5 million in salary, and will take a nonequity incentive. He will not, however, get a signing bonus or retention grant, and will not receive incentives granted to him two years before the date of his termination, in the event that he is let go or leaves on his own. Abercrombie is currently on the search for people to fill leadership positions at the label. (WWD)
