Oasis Fluffy Longline Cardi

We believe that being cozy and warm doesn't mean you should sacrifice style, especially during the winter months, when the potential to look like an overstuffed marshmallow is at its peak. Thank goodness for comfy pieces like this Oasis Fluffy Longline Cardi! Talk about stylish; this little beauty looks fantastic with everything from dresses and tights to leggings and boots. Plus, the winter white color is to die for and complements all of our favorite prints. And as far as keeping us cozy and warm, this textured cardi nails it. We're pretty much obsessed. 

GlamGlow

Is it us or has Estée Lauder been on a major shopping spree this year? We've already reported on several major purchases the beauty behemoth has made this year, and now we've learned that GlamGlow (one of our favorites) has been added to their impressive roster of beauty brands. GlamGlow is relatively new to the skincare game, having launched just four years ago, but already the facial muds are receiving global recognition and accolades from top beauty editors and bloggers. "GlamGlow is a top performer in specialty channels and effectively engages its devoted fans across digital platforms. Its unique focus on facial masks strategically complements our current prestige skin-care offerings," Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. president and CEO Fabrizio Freda said in a statement. And Estée Lauder certainly paid for the GlamGlow's unique focus; according to reports the acquisition could have a final payout of over $200 million!

Quvenzhane Wallis

She's baaaack! After what has surely been an epic year for Quvenzhané Wallis--the young actress is currently starring in a remake of Annie and has just been nominated for a Golden Globe. Now the eleven-year old has reprised her role as the face of Armani Junior's spring campaign. She first posed for the children's line last season for the fall campaign. The adorable first image for the spring collection features a smiling Wallis wearing a super cute striped dress and flat sandals. We can't wait to see the rest of the campaign.

Boscia MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil
Ok, we confess, we don't always wash our makeup off before going to bed. This is especially true around the holidays when we're hopping from party to party and the last thing we want to do is pull out the cleanser, wait for the water to get warm, work up a rich lather, scrub face with said lather, rinse, and then repeat the whole process over again because the waterproof mascara didn't wash off. Never the case when we use this Boscia MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil. Not only does it remove every trace of makeup, it leaves behind all sorts of good stuff to nourish, stimulate, protect, and detoxify our skin. And it does it all so quickly! In fact, it leaves our skin looking and feeling so good, we actually look forward to washing our makeup off at the end of the night.

Mercedes Benz Fashion week

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is getting the boot from Lincoln Center! In a settlement reached between New York City and advocates of Damrosch Park, the biannual event, which has been held at Lincoln Center since 2010, will have to find a new venue come February 2015. The reason? Apparently IMG Fashion Week, the event's organizer, failed to comply with the city charter by using the venue for non-park purposes, which ended up causing damage to the environment. Oops! And while there were plans to move NYFW to Hudson Yard's Culture Shed, that location won't be ready for at least another three years. IMG is no doubt scrambling to come up with several backup plans, as fashion week is just a few short weeks away. Stay tuned...

 

Nicki Minaj

Rapper/singer Nicki Minaj has landed her first high fashion campaign, and it's a good one. The recording artist is the star of the Roberto Cavalli Spring 2015 campaign, shot by Francesco Carrozzini. The rapper, who is best known for lighting up red carpets with her outrageous outfits and neon wigs, has toned it down her eccentric style in recent months but still dresses to show off her famous curves (which is why she was the designer's pick to be the face of the label). "In recent years we have become accustomed to women castigated in clothes that hide their body shapes," said Cavalli in a press release. "With this campaign, I wanted to send a strong countertrend message. I wanted a sensual woman who is aware of her body, who is not afraid to show her curves, rather she make them as a strength." Congrats to Ms. Minaj!

 

KLS by Kimora Lee Simmons

From the modeling career that began when she was 14 to her reign at Baby Phat to her current role as president and creative director of shoe subscription service JustFab.com, Kimora Lee Simmons has had her hands in the fashion industry for well over two decades. Now the Queen of Fabulosity (she trademarked the word) has launched a new line, KLS by Kimora Lee Simmons, but this one is decidedly different from anything she's done before. The denim and mesh that marked her Baby Phat line have been replaced with cashmere, leather, and silk for KLS. And don't expect to find KLS in your local mall; with prices ranging from $600 to $3,500, this line is "definitely catered to the woman who has a little spending power," says the designer.
