Plus, let's track Paris Jackson's meteoric rise to the top.

These are the stories making headlines in fashion on Friday.

Victoria Beckham teases a Spice Girl-heavy "Carpool Karaoke" with James Corden
The fashion designer and talk show host reimagined the '80s film classic "Mannequin" (originally starring Kim Cattrall and Andrew McCarthy) for a segment on Thursday's episode of "The Late Late Show." The video may or may not include a brief Spice Girls homage in the form of a not-at-all-well-known car-singing segment of the program... {YouTube}

Kendall Jenner is a Pepsi ambassador
Following in the footsteps of Cindy Crawford and Britney Spears, the Instagirl announced via Instagram on Thursday that she's the latest celebrity face of the soft drink giant. Keep an eye out for the full campaign, going live next week. {Hypebae}

Tracking Paris Jackson's meteoric rise to the top
In the past two months, the daughter of music legend Michael Jackson has modeled for Chanel, landed the cover of CR Fashion Book (and Harper's Bazaar) and signed a contract with IMG. Needless to say, 2017 seems to be well on its way to becoming the Year of Paris Jackson. How did it all happen? An anonymous source quoted in Page Six says a lot of it has to do with talent manager Arnold Stiefel, whose past clients include Bette Midler and Rod Stewart. {Page Six}

Just in time for spring...
There's no better time than the "spring cleaning" season to take a moment to reorganize a closet that's likely become overrun with sweaters, outerwear and accessories over the course of the winter months. In a new interview with Quartz, personal stylist and writer Peter Nguyen walks us through the basics of building a streamlined wardrobe. Check out his five-step approach before you get started on your Konmari-ing; you can thank us later. {Quartz}

One GQ writer's love letter to clown pants
Yes, you read that correctly. GQ's Zach Baron chronicles his appreciation to the high-waisted, wide-legged "clown pants that led to a spiritual awakening" after moving across the country and learning of his mother's breast cancer diagnosis. It's not one to miss. {GQ}

The cons of "see now, buy now"
We've already seen Tom Ford end his dalliance with "see now, buy now," showing that there are some clear flaws in the instant-gratification fashion system. According to Kering CEO François-Henri Pinault, eliminating the gap between a runway show and its availability in-store effectively mitigates the desire and "dream"-like compulsion to actually go out and buy it. {Business of Fashion}

Adwoa Aboah is standing up for mental health awareness
The model and Gurls Talk founder joined forces with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's charity campaign, Heads Together, to share her story of overcoming depression as part of her ongoing mission to destigmatize the conversation surrounding mental health issues. Watch her speak candidly on the subject with her mom in the video below. {Vogue UK}

Is the Trump administration driving Uniqlo out of the country? 
With rumors of a potentially burdensome import tariff designed to curb global imports in lieu of keeping manufacturing jobs stateside, it seems possible. "If I was directly told to do so, I will withdraw from the United States," said Fast Retailing Co. founder and president Tadashi Yanai in an interview with Japanese newspaper The Asahi Shimbun when asked about Trump's veiled "Made in the U.S.A" policy. "We would not be able to make really good products [in the U.S.] at costs that are beneficial to customers. It would become meaningless to do business in the U.S." {CNN}

Nordstrom to host Korean fashion pop-up shop
You don't need us to tell you that K-beauty is all the rage, but what about Korean fashion? Nordstrom's Vice President of Creative Projects, Olivia Kim, has curated a K-fashion pop-up for select Nordstrom locations (and Nordstrom's e-commerce site) inspired by the energetic and eclectic Korean fashion scene. Featuring brands like Kye, Hyein Seo, J Koo, SJYP, Yune Ho and Kuho, the pop-up will offer everything from streetwear-influenced pieces to feminine dresses, and will be open through May 7. {Fashionista inbox}
