Kendall and Kylie Jenner Launching Swimwear Line for Topshop


Kylie and Kendall Jenner announced, via selfie no less, that they will be launching a swimwear collection for Topshop for the summer 2016 season. The unstoppable duo has taken the fashion world by storm, on the modeling and designing side, so why wouldn’t their next stop be to take on the over $13 billion swimwear industry. It was just this Wednesday that they announced their new venture, which will be available.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner Are Launching Swimwear for Topshop

The look worn to make the announcement was a neon green, strappy bikini, with “KENDALL + KYLIE” written on the thick black bands at the waistline and ribcage. The overall sneak peek also included suits like a BDSM-esque one-piece in black and gold, a front zip coral scuba top, and a thick two-piece white suit; Kendall paired the last bikini with a gold body chain.

If you’ve ever taken a moment to scroll through the sisters’ Instagram pages, you would find in no time that a majority of their posts are shot somewhere in the vicinity of a swimming pool, oftentimes even in featuring the bikini-clad sisters. But hey, they know their bodies look good, so why wouldn’t they want to show off with a bikini selfie. But now, things can be a little bit amped up, as they will be able to sport their very own swimwear for their selfies. It almost seems as if they live their whole lives in bathing suits, so why not venture into the industry?

With their sneak peek and whispered words of the Kendall and Kylie Jenner for Topshop 2016 swimwear collection, they didn’t leave an official drop date, unfortunately. If I had to guess though, I wouldn’t wonder if it will be releasing in the next month, as summer is impending. There would be no point in dropping the collection midway through the bikini season (although with their mass following, it likely wouldn’t even affect sales), and we can at least hope they wouldn’t have announced the line with an intention of holding it back until next spring, so my bet would be on very soon – hopefully it will come out around the same time as the sisters’ eyewear collection!

Both the Jenners’ swimwear and eyewear collections will be one of the most talked about lines of the season, so dropping them together may start a series of mass chaos. Imagine when both do drop, though, and all of the crazed selfies that will be posted on Instagram and the like with a whole getup by the Jenner duo.

What You Need To Know About Prism Rainbow Highlighter


Prism is probably one of the most viral highlighters in the history of makeup products, and it’s inevitably becoming a legend among the world’s most renowned beauty gurus and makeup aficionados. The Prism rainbow highlighter is here to stay, and if you haven’t heard of it yet, here is everything you need to know about it.

Prism Rainbow Highlighter

It’s been a few weeks already that a gorgeous rainbow highlighter created by entrepreneur Jenna Georgescu and sold through herEtsy shop Bitter Lace Beauty has been taking the beauty world by storm, enchanting everybody with its brightness and dreamlike colors. Like in a modern fairytale, Georgescu’s Prism highlighter became unimaginably viral after a Reddit user found it on the Internet and asked for help to relocate its sources, which subsequently led to the guru’s Etsy shop where, besides the Prism highlighter, the owner dabbles in creating equally gorgeous handmade makeup palettes. All her handmade makeup products are cruelty-free, and some of them are even vegan-friendly.

What happened next could be summed up in just one sentence: people ran amok all over the Internet, and the Prism highlighter subsequently went out of stock. Georgescu’s Instagram account and Etsy shop were quickly bombarded with new requests, leaving the guru’s almost any product completely sold out. Luckily for us, Georgescu restocked it yesterday, with the sole limitation of one Prism per purchase (by the way, it is pretty affordable too! it is sold for only $22 USD).

“I know this might be upsetting, but please realize we mean well by doing this; being a handmade item we have limited quantities during our releases and want everyone to be able to snag one until we are able to expand,” Jenna explained on Instagram. Due to the incredible number of requests, as well as new followers, Jenna moved then from Etsy to her own freestanding site,, which went online earlier this morning. Such a success took Jenna by surprise, and she needed to add a few members to her team too.

It’s actually extremely time consuming to create Prism, which works on any skin tone, and it takes up to 12 hours to make just 100 of similar pans. That is, however, not preventing Jenna from fabricating it, as well as its aficionados from overwhelming the Internet and the main social media channels with creative makeup tutorials utilizing Prism and different ways of using it.

Racked, which managed to contact Jenna to interview her, asked her if she had any tips for applying or wearing Prism, and the 30-year-old entrepreneur revealed that the best way to use it was with your fingers. “As barbaric as this sounds I find using your finger gets amazing results — one swipe of the pan and one swipe to the cheek. You can go back and forth in the same direction to blend the colors into each other. If you would like to use a brush I find a dense contour brush works in a pinch. Use a side to side motion rather than swirling around;” she stated.

Cara Delevingne Named the New Rimmel Face


Edgy British model and actress Cara Delevingne has been formally announced as the new face of London-based beauty brand Rimmel. According to Johanna Businelli, chief marketing officer of color cosmetics for Rimmel’s parent company Coty, the multi-talented beauty will become the brand ambassador, and will also be featured in the upcoming campaign, with a date to be announced at a later time.

Cara Delevingne Named the New Rimmel Face

“I think it’s so rare for a beauty brand to find such a natural face as an ambassador,” said Businelli, in an interview with WWD. “We are very fortunate to have Kate Moss, but Cara is also a fantastic fit. We pick people who don’t need any customization, and I think that is one of the key points. Cara Delevingne is a true British woman and she has true British style – a classic beauty and she also has this imitable attitude. She has had a very fast rise to stardom; it’s been meteoric and she is extremely compelling and loved by the younger generation, which is a key, core target for the brand.”

What better figure for a British beauty brand than the face of someone (regarded by Businelli) as a “modern British beauty,” who embodies everything Rimmel stands for. Delevingne is special indeed, with her unmistakable, unique beauty, and she also has the feature of being versatile, by having the natural ability to change up her style on a whim.

“She has this quite unique look because it’s always bold, very trendsetting, and very personal,” Businelli continued. “It’s her style so she is inspired from within and she has that individual beauty and her individual way of self-expression, which for us is very important. If you look at the way the Rimmel brand translates, it’s really about empowering women to create their look. It’s not about having a stereotypical look. She has become a true inspiration for a generation of young women and for Rimmel.”

In order to best utilize Delevingne’s natural beauty and talent, Businelli has mentioned an intent to allow the model to drive any projects in the future. “We’ll be focusing on bringing new products, because innovation is the lifeblood of color cosmetics, and we have a fast pace of innovation, so bringing to market the innovation, that fits also the Cara personality and the Cara look,” Businelli spoke on, and as she continued, she shifted the interview to speak over Delevingne’s online presence. “It’s amazing, the following she has and it’s probably only going to continue to grow. I think over 28 million followers on Instagram alone, so that is an area that we really want to bring to life together with Cara. I think the key point here is authenticity and things being relevant and authentic.”

In a day where bloggers are being named as brand ambassadors (most recently and notably Aimee Song), moving forward on the digital front is more important now than ever. Having an e-famous face can do wonders for a label, and to kick things off with this initiative, the brand will be hosting a Snapchat conference around the world on April 15. Users will be able to send questions via a hashtag, #RimmelxCara, and Delevingne will answer her favorite questions live on the social media platform.

As the new partnership moves forward, the British model will be part of campaigns, launches, innovations, and anything else to come by the brand. But amidst all of the hectic uproar, Delevingne will not likely forget her roots with Rimmel.

“My first memory of Rimmel, was watching the adverts with Kate [Moss],” Delevingne began, in her interview with WWD. “I was very much a tomboy growing up so I never really wore makeup but I was always fascinated by how edgy and captivating the brand and its ambassadors were. It’s such an iconic cosmetic brand that represents the London girl. It was a natural partnership. The brand philosophy and core brand identity is in line with my own style and attitude. I am proud to be English and jumped at the opportunity to collaborate with such an iconic English brand.”

Delevingne has a clear connection with Rimmel, but she is not by any means exclusive to the brand. She is also the face of Saint Laurent’s most recent campaign (Hedi Slimane’s final hurrah for the label before his departure), and she will also be starring in science fiction/fantasy film “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” with Clive Owen, Ethan Hake, and Rihanna, set to release in July of 2017. She has a pretty tight film schedule, with her work last year in “Pan” and “Paper Towns,” and upcoming films “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” and “Suicide Squad,” set to release this summer.

Delevingne is the latest face of Rimmel, replacing past names like Coco Rocha, Lily Cole, Solange Knowles, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, and Zooey Deschanel. With a line of prominent celebrities in its past, it is rather refreshing to have a true, “modern British beauty” at the forefront of the brand.

7 Covetable Spring 2016 Runway Inspired Fashions to Snag Up Now


Online retailer Orchard Mile is all about having a luxury e-shopping experience, and promises access to the top designers in the industry, in one perfectly convenient location. The website was named after the Orchard Road and the Miracle Mile shopping district in Singapore, and rightly so with its wide variety of designer garb. The retailer was founded in 2014 by a team of Jennie Baik (current CEO), Georgie Benardete (current head of strategy), Julia Wetherell, and Marvin Traub Associates. It was through this retailer that we were able to compile this lovely list of 7 covetable spring 2016 fashions inspired by the runway that you’ll need to order before the warm weather comes and goes!

Covetable Spring 2016 Runway Inspired Fashions

1. Temperley London Floral & Ruffled Overalls

Overalls (or dungarees) make part of a trend that no one was quite sure how or when it came back into style; it was suddenly just there one day, and designers and retailers have continued to roll with the trend. This pair of dungarees from Temperley London available at Orchard Mile is made in lightweight cotton that gives a breezy reminder of the tropics, while naturally staying bohemian in nature. This is a look that falls somewhere on the spectrum between overalls and a jumpsuit, but the proximity does make it aesthetically different, thus perfect for the quirky wearer who wants to embody an “adultified” version of a childish style.

2. Matthew Williamson Butterfly Sunglasses

Everyone needs a solid pair of sunglasses once the sun actually comes out to play, and these grey-lensed glasses by Matthew Williamson are perfect for the modern fashion follower of today. The butterfly wing shape was inspired by the designer’s house butterfly emblem, and claims to “have the power to transform any look.” Surely that’s correct, too, as you can imagine wearing these with just about anything, making them ideal. The shades come with a faux leather case with the designer’s logo printed in bright pink, right in the middle of the otherwise cream case.Head to Orchard Mile to snag up on your favorite color!

3. Oscar de la Renta Embroidered Lace-Up Espadrilles

Oscar de la Renta’s “Adriana” espadrilles create a balance between glamour and bohemian charm, as the lax style was created in a luxurious satin silk. Italian-made, the quality is self-evident, and the embellishment on top was inspired by the brand’s own jewelry collection. They even went the extra mile to add padding for additional comfort, so you can look fabulous and not have to pay the price. They can be styled more casual or dressed up, depending on the day and occasion, so you can make them do the work.

4. Anine Bing Tassel-Fringed Tank

We love It-girl Anine Bing and her sartorial creations and we were so excited to find her on Orchard Mile’s list of designers too. White is just about the most striking statement you can make as far as color is concerned in the summer. With all of the blooming and bursting colors people opt to wear against the already bright backdrop, a white garment is a gorgeous statement. This is a simple piece, and is so easy to layer, with a fun fringe of tassels hanging from the hem, one of the best spring 2016 fashion trends you’d definitely love to wear. You’ll add a cute edge of flounce to your look, and can layer garments and accessories to make it girly and fun, or style it however you please to individualize your style.

5. AG Cropped Jeans

A staple piece for any spring/summer wardrobe, cropped denim pants will be able to provide you with some fabulous looks you otherwise couldn’t achieve, plus the length gives extreme versatility. These are distressed and stitched to give a “lived-in appeal,” made with a light-washed blue, a vintage tone for AG. They are a slimmer version of the iconic boyfriend jean, and otherwise maintain the practicality you get with denim jeans and cropped pants. Definitely one of the best spring 2016 trends to wear on a daily basis, you can shop this versatile pair of AG jeans at Orchard Mile now!

6. Anine Bing Reversible Bomber Jacket

Nothing is more practical than a garment that can be worn in more than one way. A reversible bomber jacket can be great for many things, and this garment, from Anine Bing, is no exception. On the contrary, the luscious pink fabric and contrasted ribbing makes it all the more intriguing. There’s something so comforting about the appearance of the fabric, perhaps due to its mild resemblance to sleepwear, which only adds to its appeal. It will add the perfect final touch to your casual looks. Plus bomber jackets are huge now, so make sure to buy this piece at here now!

7. Cynthia Rowley Pale Blue Cross-Body

Cross-body bags are the perfect idea for spring and summer, especially if you’re going to be traipsing around festivals and events, since all you need to do is throw it over your shoulder securely. Cynthia Rowley’s pale blue option is smooth and simple, making it easy to integrate into outfits of any type. You could just as easily pair this with a T-shirt and jeans as you could with a little black or white dress. Plus you’re also given the practical utility of it being a cross-body, making it ideal for any situation year-round, but especially in the spring and summer.

Kenzo x The Jungle Book: New Disney & Haute Collaboration


Luxury French fashion house Kenzo has teamed up with Disney to produce an exotic collection to commemorate the upcoming CGI-heavy remake of The Jungle Book. Originally written by Rudyard Kipling in 1894, the tale of The Jungle Book became a long-lasting classic, and became a 1967 beloved animated film by Disney. Now, Disney will be releasing a new version of the film, as a mixture between CGI and live acting, which will premiere in theaters on April 15 in the U.S. The collection by Kenzo includes a mixture between exotic prints to symbolize the jungle scenery and novelty pieces depicting characters from the film in a more casual way.

Kenzo x The Jungle Book 2016 Disney Collection

This capsule collection is totally ready-to-wear, with pieces of menswear and womenswear, so you can be looking stylish and fun for the new season. Lately on the runway, tropical, exotic patterns have been especially favored, especially within the group of luxury labels. The prints in this collection are a mixture between Kenzo’s signature florals and some artwork from the original Disney film. The reiteration of the classic Hawaiian “tourist” shirt, for instance, really brought about a clear image of the tropics, while still being ironic with the stereotypical tourist styling.

Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, creative directors for Kenzo, found some original sketches from the animated Disney flick and were able to use them as a source of major inspiration for the capsule collection. “It was incredible,” Leon told Vogue. “We were able to [watch] some never-before-seen segments of the orginal movie, ands eeing the pro segments of the original movie, ands seeing the process behind their creations was the most exciting part of this collaboration.”

As a fan of Disney myself, I can’t help but feel jealous, and I’m sure I can speak for many others when I say that. The idea of a story that became so iconic with its Disney iteration, and being able to see scenes and graphics no one else in the general public had been able to see is a unrivaled. And to then be able to use that as inspiration to create a stunning luxury collection would be a dream come true.

“The Jungle Book has always been my favorite Disney movie because it resonated with my fear of being alone,” continued Leon. “I love the spirit of independence and conquering fear.”

This source of childhood connection resulted in technicolor silk dresses, button-down tops, and a whole lot of the Disney magic that is present in any film from the iconic filmmaker. And of course, you can’t go wrong with sweatshirts featuring characters like Shere Khan, the antagonist tiger. Kenzo, along with their U.S. retailer Bergdorf Goodman, will host a private cocktail event, where they will screen the film next week. The collection, Kenzo x The Jungle Book, went on sale exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman on Friday, and will go live on on April 7.
