After taking a year-long hiatus, Cathy Horyn is back on the fashion beat as critic-at-large for New York Magazine's online publication The Cut. In an interview in the upcoming issue of System magazine, the outspoken writer discusses the keys to knowing what is newsworthy and stresses the importance of writing what you really think. {Business of Fashion

Kendall Jenner's giant Calvin Klein Jeans billboard in New York City was vandalized on Wednesday night by a drone. Graffiti artist KATSU figured out how to make the flying robotic device wield a can of red spray paint, and unfortunately the budding supermodel was its first victim. {Wired}

In a recent interview with Italian publication Corriere della Sera, fashion designer Miuccia Prada says she was "terrified" of Lauren Weisberger's "The Devil Wears Prada" film adaptation, claiming "the book was awful." Ironically enough, the inspiration behind Meryl Streep's character Miranda, Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour, was apparently "100 percent" behind the film — despite the fashion monstrosity she was portrayed as. Sorry, Weisberger, can't please them all. {Us Weekly}

At its third NewFront presentation Tuesday, Condé Nast Entertainment announced changes to its video programming, including the development of a co-branded series with GQ and Glamour that promises to glam up less than stylish Department of Motor Vehicles and U.S. Postal Service employees. That shouldn't offend anyone. {WWD}

Delta Air Lines employees are about to get a lot more chic: Designer Zac Posen, known for his high-glamour evening wear and expert tailoring, is set to collaborate with the company on new uniforms for its flight attendants and airport customer service agents. His first creations for Delta are set to debut in 2018. {PR Newswire}
