New Direction: Gap Inc. CEO Art Peck named former creative director Rebekka Bay's replacement on Thursday: Wendi Goldman, who will serve as Executive Vice President of Gap Product Design and Development. Quite a mouthful, right?

Red Carpet Debut: Four major designers made significant red carpet debuts at last weekend's Academy Awards. Check them out here.

New Vision: Alessandro Michele's much-anticipated womenswear debut at Gucci was met with surprise by the fashion community, which expected a lot more sex — and less romance — from the designer.

Unstoppable: 81-year-old multi-tasker Karl Lagerfeld has one more thing to add to his resume: "Haute Fourrure." The designer will now be designing haute couture collections for Fendi — because eight ready-to-wear and two haute couture collections in 2014 weren't enough.

Beautiful Synergy: Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop is ramping up its business development, partnering up with the skincare line Juice Beauty on a number of new projects.

Passing Moment: From the streets to the runways, we saw very few sneakers this Fashion Month, despite the shoe style being one of the most ubiquitous trends of 2014. Does this mean fashion is ready to move on from trainers entirely? 

Business Wisdom: On Tuesday night, Fern Mallis sat down with 81-year-old Leonard Lauder, the former CEO of Estée Lauder, as part of her "Fashion Icons" series. And lucky for us, we were there to catch every last bit of business advice from the former exec.

What's Next: Fashion Toast blogger Rumi Neely is venturing into designer turf with a self-funded line of clothing called Are You Am I, which she hopes to build slowly, but deliberately. 

Clear As Essence: For our latest Korean skincare investigation, we dived into the world of serums, essences and ampoules with help from Sarah Lee and Christine Chang of Glow Recipe.

Repurposed: One of the less exciting trends we saw this Fashion Month? Designers as aggregators. Is it ever ok for designers to cull ideas from other labels' collections?
