50 Cent, like other rappers, has been working his way into the fashion industry for a while now. His latest venture is a new high-end underwear line for FRIGO Revolution Wear that’s priced at $100 — yup that means you’d be buying $100 briefs from a guy named 50 Cent. The rapper, actor and businessman may have not been involved in designing the product but he gave a surprisingly funny sales pitch to Seth Meyers while on the Late Show. Fiddy may sell off those pricey undies after all! Watch the full interview below. {Late Night with Seth Meyers}

After Gucci’s CEO and creative director announced they were stepping down last week, the fashion world has been wondering who parent company Kering will tap to take over. The latest rumors point to Hedi Slimane of Saint Laurent (also owned by Kering) as the top choice. The designer has made major changes at YSL since joining in 2012 that have been highly successful overall. Perhaps he can work some of his magic over at Gucci? {Page Six}

Ports 1961 has named a new creative director for womenswear. Natasa Cagalj will take over for Fiona Cibani who held the position for four years. Cagalj has an impressive set of experiences — working as Alber Elbaz’s right-hand designer at Lanvin until 2005 when she moved to Stella McCartney as head of design until 2012 — that will help the womenswear business continue to grow. According to Cibani, her replacement is a "creative force" with a vision that's "perfectly in line with the Ports 1961 woman." Cagalj is scheduled to show her first fall collection for Ports 1961 in February. {WWD}

There are brand new wax figures of Cara Delevingne and Naomi Campbell at Paris’ Grévin museum, and they're more than a little creepy. {Style}
