Pink

The world of fashion is so fascinating. Who would have guessed that something as iconic as Victoria's Secret Pink could actually be infringing on trademarks. Well, the U.K. courts have ruled that it has! They're saying that Victoria’s Secret’s use of the name Pink infringes on Thomas Pink’s U.K. and European Community trademarks.

If you're not familiar with Thomas Pink, they're a luxury clothing brand (and part of the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton group) known for their men's and women's shirts. These collar stays retail for $50.

Thomas Pink is seeking an injunction from the court, so stay tuned as to what will actually happen. Never a dull moment.

Caron
There's a new fragrance on the market, and it's inspired by the Statue of Liberty! It's called Lady Caron and it's a tribute to the French luxury perfumer's founder, Ernest Daltroff, who left Paris during World War II for New York.

“It is an homage to the Caron’s founder Ernest Daltroff, who fled Paris and the Nazis for New York,” perfume creator Richard Fraysse told WWD. “Lady Liberty was the inspiration behind Lady Caron, an elegant floral chypre with notes of magnolia, rose, jasmine and a fruity punch of raspberry and peaches.”

In addition to the fruit floral notes, Lady Caron features an oak moss base. Not a cheap date though—the new scent retails for $180, and will be available in the fall at stores including Fortnum & Mason, Harrods and Les Senteurs in London.

EM

YouTube makeup guru Michelle Phan now has her makeup kits available on Amazon! Em is the first L’Oréal Luxe brand to launch on Amazon’s luxury beauty channel, WWD reported. 

The Em makeup kits are designed for special events such as job interviews, first dates, and meeting a boyfriend's mother. 

Chance Wales, director of Beauty and Health & Personal Care for Amazon, said, “The brand is a natural fit for the Amazon Luxury Beauty Store. The beauty industry is ripe for innovation, especially in terms of digital and social integration on the Web.” 

MAC Marge Simpson line

As beauty icons go, Marge Simpson may not be at the top of most lists, but with that blue bouffant--easily one of the most iconic hairstyles in television history--and those up-to-there lashes, Mrs. Simpson is actually quite the bombshell. To celebrate her 25 years on TV, MAC Cosmetics is launching a Marge Simpson-inspired makeup line due out this fall. The color collection includes eye shadow palettes, blush, lip glosses, nail stickers, and of course, false eyelashes. The colors are bold and bright, just like Marge's signature look, with cute names like "pink Sprinkles" (which we can't wait to get our hands on) and "Sideshow You." Look for the Marge Simpson collection starting September 4.

Dior-cuir-cannage

The house of Dior is perhaps as known for its fragrances as it is for its fashion (the Miss Dior Cherie commercial directed by Sofia Coppola was advertising perfection, oui?), so we were obviously excited to learn about a new Dior fragrance. Cuir Cannage is the latest addition created by the house's resident perfumer François Demachy, with notes inspired by the iconic Lady Dior handbag.  "I wanted it to smell of leather, but there is also [a hint of] lipstick, tissues, and imagination," said Demachy. The new perfume retails for $275.

Iggy Azalea

Two years ago we were practically skipping around the office when we learned that MTV was bringing back it's fashion-centric show House of Style, and supermodels Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss were slated to host. Sadly the show was online-only and last just one season. Well, we're officially skipping around the office again because we've just learned that the show is coming back, this time with Iggy Azalea as host! This season contains eight episodes, which will start airing on August 4 and end on the eve of the Video Music Awards. Iggy Azalea is the first musician to host, following in the footsteps of supermodels Cindy Crawford, Rebecca Romijm, and Molly Sims.

Kate Spade Saturday Seamed Dress

Our idea of the perfect summer dress? Short and swingy with a fun print, and bonus points if it has pockets; basically, the Kate Spade Saturday Seamed Dress in Crosswalk Stripe. The stripes are super fun and playful and the circle skirt makes it extra swingy, and since it's black and white we can accessorize with our brightest and boldest colors, or mix it with other fun prints (think florals, leopard, or eye-catching geometric prints). And yes, it does have pockets!

FashionGirl

Hey Fashion Girl, 

I'm 15 years old, heading into sophomore year. I live in Mira Mesa, CA and I would like to get a head start on my fashion for next year. For the past few years I didn't really care what I wore, and I just threw on anything that looked good. But now I want to take the time to choose my outfits. I would like to go for a nerdy/sporty look. Any advice? Thanks.

Sincerely,
Caroline

P.S. Do you give advice on makeup too?

Hi Caroline,

First off, I totally get you. I love the nerdy/sporty look! One great way to tap into that look without going overboard is to try mixing sporty looks with fashion-forward styles. For example, throw on some sneakers with a cute, feminine miniskirt in a floral pattern. Take a look at Fashion Club's Style Inspo board on Pinterest. There is the cutest photo of someone wearing Chuck Taylor high tops with sequin leggings. Love!

Chucks

As far as nerdy goes, I think a good approach is collegiate style. Try wearing a cardigan with a button up collared shirt once in a while. Very preppy chic.

And yes, I absolutely can field your makeup questions. Send them my way!

Yours Truly,

Fashion Girl

Alexis Bittar Geometric Ribbon Cuff Bracelet

There are a few fashion staples that we always keep in rotation, and statement jewelry is one of them. We can already tell this Alexis Bittar Geometric Ribbon Cuff Bracelet is going to get a lot of wear because it's equal parts glamorous and edgy, making it the perfect accent to just about every outfit we can come up with. We can rock it now with sweet, summery LWDs and maxi dresses, and come September it's going to look fab with all of fall's jewel tones and heavy knits.

Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld is among the most fabulous people, ever--he's the head designer for Chanel, Fendi, and his own eponymous labels; he calls the world's most stylish and glamorous celebrities (including members of royalty) his friends; and his nickname is the Kaiser, for pete's sake. Obviously the man should be immortalized with his own Barbie doll! Mattel, the creator of the iconic Barbie doll, has announced that come fall, a Kaiser-inspired doll called Barbie Lagerfeld will be on shelves. The doll will be dressed in a similar look to Lagerfeld's standard uniform: a white collared shirt, a fitted black blazer, skinny pants, black sunglasses, Chanel-esque chain necklaces and fingerless driving gloves.

 

Violeta for Mango

We're always excited when we learn about a clothing label launching a plus size line, so the news that Mango is launching Violeta by Mango, its line of fashion for curvy girls, in the US we nearly did a backflip. The line, which before now was only available in France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Turkey, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Spain, will include over 1,000 products, with sizes ranging from US 12 to 18. And the pieces are every bit as stylish as you would expect from Mango--think leather accents, animal prints, military details, and '60s inspiration. Violeta is available in Mango stores, as well as online.

 

Kate Spade bikini

Kate Spade is easily among the top favorite labels of just about every girl we know (and that's a lot of girls)--every piece is girly and colorful and just so darn cute! Naturally, the news that a Kate Spade line of swimwear is coming soon is good news. The line will include both mix-and-match bikinis and one-pieces, with prices ranging from $120 to $200. And if you're wondering what a Kate Spade swimsuit might look like, the label's chief creative officer has the answer. "It’s retro reimagined, classic with a twist, and pays homage to our heritage whether with a classic black and white stripe, a graphic dot or an artisanal print."
