•Eva Chen has some news for the masses, and it doesn’t involve Lucky Magazine or the newly minted Lucky Group.  The EIC recently took to Instagram to reveal that there’s a mini Chen on the way! In her signature #EvaChenPose that she snaps every morning featuring a pair of shoes and a bag, she featured a pair of NewBalance sneakers and a Chanel bag, along with two mini versions, writing, “like mother, like future(winter 2015!) daughter edition.” Looks like Alaia Wang is going to have some street style competition!

•For their latest designer collaboration, plus-sized brand Lane Bryant has taped Lela Rose (Marlo Hampton wears a dress by the designer above) to design a line of day-to-night printed dresses.  Rose follows Sophie Theallet and Isabel Toledo; her first range for the brand is due to hit stores next summer. As of now Rose will only be partnering with the brand for a year, but Lane Bryant execs are hoping for a longer engagement. (Racked)


•After announcing that they would be dropping Lucky Magazine — side note: to answer our previous inquiry, Lucky Magazine will still be publishing 10 print issues a year — Conde Nast has also announced that it will be shedding the weight that is Fairchild Fashion Media.  In a deal that was said to fetch only $100 million(in context, Conde Nast reportedly bought Fairchild for $650 million in 1999), Penske Media Corp will now own WWD, Footwear News, M Magazine and the Fairchild Summits and events business. and NowManifest, which were also Fairchild Media owned, will stay with Conde Nast. Talk about changing of the guard. (WWD)
