Serena Williams covers Glamour’s July issue
In the latest issue of Glamour magazine, tennis legend and part-time Beyoncé music video star Serena Williams dishes about her career, desire to raise a family and the wage gap in professional sports.

Vince reduces inventory and reduces promotions in a rough first quarter
Contemporary brand Vince is weathering a transitional period: It brought back founders Rea Laccone and Christopher LaPolice as consultants in November, but their collections won't hit stores until fall and the holidays. In the meantime, the brand saw comparable sales decrease by 12.3 percent in the three months preceding April 30. Part of Vince's plan to survive this period includes reducing inventory by almost half and ceasing all major promotions. {Fashionista Inbox}
