To celebrate their arrival on the New York Stock Exchange, American Eagle threatens to dispenses their beachy models to Wall Street. We hear that 20 pretty, perky kids in shorts, bikinis, and flip flops will throw a Spring Break party tomorrow, parked just outside the Exchange from 8 am - 1 pm. Our first reaction: This PR stunt sounds like a nightmare for the models - bikinis in 10 degree weather? I don't think so. Our second reaction: It might not be so bad for some of the girls... at the very least, they'll meet some guys who will always pay for dinner...

Juicy Couture Hires American Eagle's Head Designer
If you love Juicy Couture's velour track suits--no judging, we promise--but find $196 price tag a bit jarring, good news: Liz Claiborne, the company that now owns Juicy Couture and kicked out founders Gela Nash-Taylor and Pamela Skaist-Levy about a year ago, has hired American Eagle's chief design officer LeAnn Nealz to head up the brand, reports WWD. It can be deduced that her role will not only be to update the brand's image, but also to make it even more mass than it already is. Which hopefully means slightly lower prices.
