• For those who like sparkly undergarments, Victoria’s Secret is producing replicas of their runway fantasy bra for the very first time.

• IMG Fashion announced just last week a plan to streamline the chaos of New York Fashion Week by cutting the guest list and moving shows to smaller venues. I think we can safely say that these are welcome reforms, and I wager lots of designers would agree. According to the New York Times, even Carolina Herrera is not here for the NYFW  hustle and bustle, saying the affair  “has gotten too commercial, too much like a trade show,” and that she’s considering holding her runway shows in a different (likely smaller) location.

• took a survey asking men and women to describe the perfect female face, using features from celebrities as reference. The results? Men prefer blonde hair, a strong jaw, and full lips, while women are drawn to ladies with darker hair and a thicker brown. The similarities between both versions of the “perfect” face? All are made up of features from white actresses. Quelle surprise! (Telegraph)
