Fashion News Roundup: Olivier Rousteing Is Gorgeous (and He's Confirmed at Balmain), Jason Wu's Making Faucets, and Vanessa Hudgens Wants To Be a Designer

Olivier Rousteing Confirmed as New Designer at Balmain (and Also He’s Hot): He’s been Decarnin’s right-hand man at Balmain since 2009, and spent five years at Roberto Cavalli before that. We can’t speak to his design talent yet, but he certainly is easy on the eyes. Paris just got a bit more picturesque. {WWD, subscription required} Victoria’s Secret Destroys Returned Purchases: Apparently the retailer didn’t learn anything from H&M’s PR nightmare for this same issue. The lingerie chain was called out after a clerk started chopping up--in front of a customer--an unworn pair of Pink sweatpants that she had returned. {MSNBC} Jason Wu Is Collaborating on a Line of Faucets: Jason Wu is collaborating with fancy bathroom fixture company Brizo to create high-end faucets. No word on if there will be soap dish accessories. {DailyNews}
