These are the stories making headlines this Tuesday.

Modcloth retires the "plus" category, but keeps plus-sized clothing.
In an effort to appeal to more customers, Modcloth has decided to retire the category "Plus," though it will still carry the same sizes for women. Confused? Through a study conducted independently, the retailer found that nearly two-thirds of women surveyed were embarrassed about having to go to a separate "Plus" section to shop, and that over half of the participants no longer wanted to be associated with the term. From now on, those sizes will live alongside straight sizes on, confirming our hypothesis that the key to attracting the plus-size customer is not using the word "plus." {Fashionista Inbox}

Before his Chanel spring 2016 runway presentation, the 82-year-old told press: "You know my contracts with Fendi and Chanel are for life? And I don't feel tired at all." {Vogue UK}
