Elsa Peretti has earned billions of dollars for the designs she's created for Tiffany, which accounted for around 10 percent of its $3.8 billion in sales in 2012. That same year, Tiffany renewed Peretti's contract for 20 years, increasing her royalty fees and giving her an instant check for $47.3 million. If those seem like impressive sums to you, they're not for Peretti. "It might look like a lot, but, after taxes, it’s not really, for the work I’ve done," she says. {Vanity Fair}

Fast fashion retailer Zara is about to get even faster. The company is implementing a microprocessor-based tagging system that will allow items to be tracked from its factories straight to the cash register. Cha-ching! {Reuters}

Marie Claire has a new managing editor. Nancy Gillen, who has served as Glamour's managing editor since late 2011, will start at the Hearst-owned glossy on Aug. 4. {Fashionista inbox}
