Aquazzura is suing Ivanka Trump in trademark dispute
Aquazzura is taking the eldest Trump progeny to court.

Shiseido launches app that rates your smile
Japanese beauty giant Shiseido says that it has determined a way to visually rate users' smiles by measuring facial movements and assigning a numerical rating from 0-120. However, a score of 120 might not necessarily be the most attractive: "For instance, a smile could be perceived as more elegant even when the overall rating is 80." Starting next month, the brand will start testing the app on 5,000 Japan Airlines flight attendants, whose feedback will be used to improve the app, which Shiseido is targeting at the hospitality industry. {The Japan Times}

L'Oréal USA relocates to Hudson Yards
