In case you're wondering why Kate Middleton's been wearing shorter hemlines, sheer pieces and younger-looking ensembles, it's because she's enlisted a new stylist. More surprisingly, she's hired her former personal assistant, 27-year-old Natasha Archer, for the job. The Duchess reportedly wants to take more risks and push more boundaries with her sartorial choices. We like this new Kate! {Harper's Bazaar}  

Cara Delevingne and Topshop want to wish everyone "Happy Holidays" and encourage you to come shop at the British retailer's new location on Fifth Avenue. Watch Cara being Cara in the promotional video right here. {YouTube}

Rihanna is on the cover of Elle's December issue, and Editor-in-Chief Robbie Myers has some very kind words to say about the singer in her monthly letter. In case you were wondering, the cover shoot is extremely sexy. {Elle}

Michael Kors is launching a collection of phone charging cases, earbuds and two chargers — one meant to look like lipstick, the other a compact case — this month. Kors's PowerCase provides 100 percent extra battery power, and prices for products will range from $58 to $140. With more people on the go, it appears as though Kors is just another designer to jump on board with the stylish tech trend. {WWD}

Alice & Olivia is in expansion mode as sales surged to $200 million last year and the company opened five new store locations — including a 2,100 square foot location on Melrose Avenue last week — for a total of 15 across the U.S. In the last two years, the brand has also set up partnerships in the Middle East and Asia. Although she's petite in size, Stacey Bendet is a force to be reckoned with. {WWD}
