These are the stories making headlines in fashion this Thursday.

The impact of Kanye West's Yeezys on the resale market
Prior to the first launch of Yeezys in February 2015, both Jordan Brand and Nike accounted for 96 percent of the resale market's sales dollars; now, it's gone down to 80 percent (still, a significant amount), with Adidas's Yeezys accounting for 15 percent of that market. Even if Adidas was to ramp up production of Yeezys, some still believe that they'll continue to sell with just as high a frequency (and with the same ridiculously-high price tag) in resale. {Footwear News}

Jennifer Lawrence fronts Harper's Bazaar
Jennifer Lawrence graces the May cover of Harper's Bazaar. In her corresponding interview, she talks about how she's not getting it ("Sex? Someone explain to me what it is."), her essay for Lenny on equal pay in Hollywood and her contract with Dior ("I couldn't renew my contract quickly enough.") Well, we guess our hopes for a post-Dior Schiaparelli Couture contract will never be realized. Sad face. {Harper's Bazaar}

SK-II commercial addresses the issue of "Leftover Women" in China
In a new commercial, SK-II attempts to change the view on "Leftover Women" (the term for older, unmarried women in China) as part of a wider "Change Destiny" campaign. In the documentary-style commercial, participants talk about the societal pressures that single Chinese women over the age of 25 feel to get married, and the criticism that they receive from family members. At the end, though, one of the participants states: "I'm confident. I'm independent. I love life. I'm a pretty outstanding woman." It's really worth watching. {Mashable}
