Plus, SJP returns to HBO and Meadham Kirchoff's future is uncertain.

When "Sex and the City" ended, the loss of fashion’s favorite show was only made worse by Sarah Jessica Parker’s departure from our screens. Now, our sartorial spirits have been lifted by the news that SJP will be returning to HBO as the star of a new, 30-minute scripted comedy called “Divorce.” There's no word on whether her new character will have Carrie Bradshaw's penchant for expensive footwear, but with Parker starring and executive producing, we’re confident she’ll sneak in some fashion eye candy for us. {Deadline}

There’s only a few days left until Christmas, and thus only a few spots left in Love’s advent calendar of short clips starring gorgeous models. Gigi Hadid has claimed day 22 with lots of close up kissy faces, flips of her golden locks and a little holiday side boob. See the full video above. {Love}

Gucci is having an eventful couple of weeks. Between losing two top employees and a search for a new designer, the Italian luxury house is combating rumors that it employs low-cost Chinese workers instead of local artisans. Italian TV show “Report” secretly filmed three of the 576 supplier companies Gucci uses, though the company claims this is an inaccurate portrayal of its supply chain operation. According to a statement, Gucci insists that it produces 100 percent of its leather goods in Italy, and that 90 percent of its employees are Italian citizens. {WWD}

Estée Lauder has been on an acquisition spree this year, but the cosmetics conglomerate's latest is also its largest. Estée has snatched up indie-skincare company GlamGlow for an undisclosed price, though Wall Street sources say it could range between $100 million to $220 million. GlamGlow is only four years old but is believed to be profitable with an estimated $90 million in retail sales in 2013. Like Estée’s decision to name Kendall Jenner as the company’s new face, the acquisition is another step towards appealing to a younger demographic. {WWD

Meadham Kirchhoff may be one of London's most beloved and critically-revered young brands, but as it turns out, even that, plus a Topshop collaboration and oodles of support from the British Fashion Council, does not equal a lucrative business. As the designers face significant debt, the brand's future remains uncertain, and a fall 2015 collection may not come to fruition. {Style.com}
