These are the stories making headlines in fashion this Wednesday.

Electro-pop singer/producer/songwriter/cool person Grimes fronts the cover of Dazed's autumn/winter issue, looking every bit as eccentric as her job description would imply. We're gonna go ahead and say this is the best cover of the year. {Dazed}

In their latest interview, Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne discuss the challenges of designing for DKNY, a brand with a much deeper history than their own label, Public School. According to Chow, the goal for this season is to establish the "rules of this brand" separate from their own. And as for style inspiration, the duo looked through a lot of imagery from the '80s and '90s. {WWD

Macy's Inc. will be closing as many as 40 stores early next year as it is focuses more on its e-commerce operations. In addition, the retail behemoth will also be experimenting with outlets. {Bloomberg Business}

Despite having no experience in the filmmaking industry, singer/songwriter Sia will soon direct a movie based on a one-page play that she wrote eight years ago. Titled "Sister," the movie will star — you guessed it — Maddie Ziegler. {Hollywood Reporter}

What did fashion shows look like before people began to obsessively look at their phones and Instagram everything? New York Times reporter Guy Trebay recalls a moment in '90s fashion, when the room was "as packed as a mosh pit with fashion editors and photographers and downtown personalities and drag queens and hangers-on ... all dressed to the nines (or whatever their idea of that was)." {The New York Times}

Glossier, the beauty brand started by Into the Gloss founder Emily Weiss, is now selling on Net-a-Porter. It's just one product for now, but we can see this partnership going places. {Glossier}

Madonna fans can expect a runway show when the pop diva takes the stage for her upcoming Rebel Heart tour. In conjunction with costume designer Arianne Phillips, Madonna has enlisted the help of Miuccia Prada, Jeremy Scott, Alexander Wang and Gucci's Alessandro Michele for her tour costumes. And if you're so inclined, you can take a look at some of the sketches before the tour. {WWD}

In her latest interview, 18-year-old Kylie Jenner spells out literally every single aspect of her beauty routine, from fragrance to hair to skin care to other services. Let's just say it's pretty exhausting just reading it. {The New York Times}

Heads up: Kate Spade sales associates will be called muses from now. Rather than focusing on overt salesmanship, the muses will be responsible for creating an experience for customers. To help facilitate that, the muses will have optional tools like candy and packs of confetti at their disposal. {Buzzfeed}
