Emily Blunt's YSL Opium Commercial: ...Is as random as any other fragrance commercial. Watch the actress walk through a mansion to some very ominous classical music, into a room with her pet cheetah waiting for her. We told you. Random! {Kiss and Makeup}

Charlotte Olympia to Open NYC Store: The shoe designer let it slip via Twitter that she is planning on opening her first stateside standalone store in uptown Manhattan during mid to late January. We wonder how far uptown Ms. Olympia's store will be... {ELLE}

André Leon Talley's Financial Advice: ...is the same as ours. The famed Vogue editor and curator encourages us to get as many things for free as possible: "I'm not going to go to the local theater to spend $12...when I can get a screening copy of a film. Don't pay money for something you can get for free, and instead use the money you save for something more important. Why spend money on movies when you can spend it on gas? Or dry-cleaning? Or groceries?" Word to that, ALT! {The Cut}

H&M Admits The Models on Their Website Have Computer-Generated Bodies: Hey, at least they're keeping it real with us! The retailer says the models used for the virtual try-on feature on their site are digitally fabricated and completed with the heads of real models. We're not that surprised about this since all the bodies are posed exactly the same way. {Jezebel via Aftonbladet}
