The Fashion Week venue shakeups continue, after news broke that February will be the last season designers show at Lincoln Center. Word is the High Line Hotel, which has previous hosted presentations from Cynthia Rowley and Billy Reid, may be turning away designers, too. {Page Six}

Some Target customers were unhappy to learn last week that the plus-size end of the retailer's Lilly Pulitzer collaboration would only be sold online. As a Target rep now explains, the choice was in part a response to poor plus-size sales of its Calypso St Barth collab. Selling online, he says, gives the retailer more flexibility in managing its assortment. {Refinery29}

Even as beauty vloggers continue to build out their YouTube empires, developing seemingly intimate connections with their viewers, the authenticity of their content has come under question. YouTubers like Michelle Phan and Bethany Mota have teamed up with brands after their channels' respective success -- so just how unbiased are these beauties, really? {WWD}

Fendi has tapped influentials including Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Feinstein, Jourdan Dunn and Leandra Medine to personalize their own 3Baguette handbags, proceeds of which will go towards a charity of their choosing. The bags will be unveiled on Feb. 13 and available for purchase through March 13. {WWD}
