Nylon has been through the ringer lately: First, the magazine was sold off to a new owner, resulting in co-founder Marvin Jarrett's ousting from his role as EIC and replacement by Joe Mohen. Then, Jarrett threatened to sue and Mohen quit, as did some key staffers. But lo! The magazine has a new EIC: Michelle Lee, who was the founding editor of Us Weekly and The Daily Front Row. Will the hire restore some order to this messy media situation? {Observer}

She’s baaaaack! Adriana Lima is returning to her old (beauty) stomping grounds as the latest face of Maybelline. Of course, the model was the makeup brand’s global spokesmodel from 2003-2009, so we're guessing she'll handle the pressure of a major contract just fine. {Fashionista Inbox} 

Cindy Crawford is writing a book that she describes as "not a coffee table book," "not a biography" and "sort of a hybrid book." K. It sounds a little like Alexa Chung's stream-of-consciousness biography-ish tome, "It," although we're pretty sure that it will be quite different in tone. Crawford is also making moves forward with her anti-aging skincare line, Meaningful Beauty, because she is clearly aware that we all want to age just like her. {WWD}
