Anna Wintour ain’t going nowhere!! Or so, Condè Nast contends.Amid rumors that the hallowed fashion editor is soon to leave her post as editor-in-chief of American Vogue and creative director of Condè Nast, Condè Nast CEO Bob Sauerberg clapped back on Twitter on Tuesday, “Anna Wintour is an incredibly talented and creative leader whose influence is beyond measure. She is an integral to the future of our company’s transformation and has agreed to work with me indefinitely in her as @voguemagazine editor-in-chief and artistic director of Condè Nast.

Still, the powers that be at Condè Nast did not give dates of Wintour’s extended employment. Hmm, in the words of the bard of Stratford-on-Avon, “the things thou dost protest.”

Rich kids rule

There is no doubt that Dolce & Gabbana (D&G) has a long-standing penchant for the scions of famous folks. In the brand’s spring 2018 and fall 2018 shows, D&G had the kids of celebrities scattered throughout their runway shows—Sofie Richie, Hailey Baldwin, Sistine and Sophia Stallone, Christian Combs, and others.

For its fall 2018 men’s campaign, D&G has employed the services of Christian Combs, Rafferty Law, son of Jude Law, Charlie Oldman, son of Gary Oldman, Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, nephew of Ralph and Joseph Fiennes, Kevin Chaplin, grandson of Charlie Chaplin, Paris Bosnan, son of Pierce Brosnan, as well as some non-celebrity scion men. Talk about a celebrity scion festival!!

With this assemblage of the kids of powerful celebrities, the D&G design duo catches two birds with one stone. Domenico Dolce and Steffano Gabbana connect a younger audience with this well-known iconic Italian fashion house, and this casting also represents the brand’s current clientele.

Hmm, rich folks fronting for a fashion brand, seems kind of dusty!! What do you think?

Catfights and dog barks!!

Speaking of rich folks, the Kim Kardashian/Tyson Beckford social media feud continues. This feud started with supermodel Tyson Beckford body shaming Kim K on social media about Kim K’s surgically enhanced body, ”Sorry, I [don’t] care for it personally … “She is not real, doctor fucked up on her right hip.” These comments were in response to an image of Kim K walking in tight pants.

Kardashian clapped backed on The Shade Room which showed the image and Beckford’s comments by saying, “Sis, we all know why you don’t care for it.” The post was accompanied by the tea, frog, and nails emoji.

Wagging tongues are contending that Kim K was implying that Tyson Beckford is gay and on the down low (DL). Tyson clapped back by showing off his very toned body and commenting that he is sexually attracted to women, and supports LGBT issues.

Is this a real social media feud, or only done for more social media likes, followers, and publicity? You know the Kardashian are the kings, or should I say, queens of social media plants!!

Pretty in millennial pink

Millennial pick try-ons account for 20% of lipstick try-ons in the US and UK according to Perfect Corp, parent company of YouCam Makeup. This result was discovered in an initiative sponsored by YouCam Makeup on National Lipstick Day (July 29). This lipstick color tests was conducted on 280 million users worldwide.

While millennial pink was one of the most popular lipstick colors in this study, pink overall was the preferred color in the Western world—with almost 50% of the top lip colors being pink shades in the United States and the UK—users in the East preferred to mix it up more. The study also found that Chinese users liked a more diverse range of colors—purples, oranges and lighter sheer shades. Korean users preferred bold, darker pinks, purples, and reds.
