Kim Kardashian as Audrey Hepburn for Hype Energy
We accompanied the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star on a press junket for the energy drink in Nashville last month and her campaign has just been revealed.

Gucci x Dover Street Market
Gucci has partnered with beloved concept store Dover Street Market to set up shop-in-shops at all four locations in New York, London, Tokyo and Beijing.

We have a feeling new creative director Alessandro Michele’s geeky, androgynous aesthetic had something to do with getting DSM's attention. {Fashionista Inbox}

Steven Kolb wishes NYFW: Men's had more alcohol
Four Pins interviewed Steven Kolb about the inaugural New York Fashion Week: Men’s. He feels it was successful, and less frenzied than its women's counterpart. His one complaint? “I felt like there should have been a beer garden or a keg or something. It felt like it’s guys, there’s beer. We could have done tequila shots, but that’s a bit much. I felt like a cold beer on a hot day would have been nice.” {Four Pins}

Ever wondered how indie mags make money?
How are these small, independtent titles making ends meet when even established glossies are struggling? Magazines like Tank, The Gentlewoman, and Inventory gain revenue via strong relationships with advertisers, sponsored content (i.e., native advertising), branded events, online stores, and creative agencies. {Business of Fashion}
