Gigi Hadid isn't just Zayn Malik's girlfriend — she's also his design partner
Hadid just made headlines by photographing boyfriend Malik for a Versus Versace campaign, but a recent interview proved that their creative collaborations don't stop there. Zayn revealed that Hadid also helped him with the designs for his Giuseppe Zanotti shoe collection, released in January. "She's a really good artist, really creative," he said. {The Times}

Kim Kardashian opened up about her Paris robbery on TV
The much-publicized robbery that occurred during Paris Fashion Week in the fall was discussed at length in the latest episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." Kardashian shared her fears that she was going to be raped or killed, and expressed hurt that some people have accused her of making the incident up. "People... said I should go to jail if this is fake. And I'm like, 'Why would anyone make it up?'" {YouTube}

Maria Grazia Chiuri talks feminism at Dior
As the first female creative director in the Parisian house's 70-year history, Chiuri may see the famed label in a slightly different light than her male predecessors. "'Dior is feminine.' That's what I kept hearing when I told people I was coming here," she said in an interview. "If Dior is about femininity, then it is about women. And not about what it was to be a woman 50 years ago, but to be a woman today... I am not interested in the old stereotypes of what a feminist looks like or doesn't look like. I don't think there is one way to be a feminist." {The Guardian}

Why Tumblr Pink isn't going away
That dreamy shade of rose quartz that covers everything from Glossier packaging to Thinx advertisements — often called Tumblr Pink or Millennial Pink — may have appeared to hit its peak once it made its way onto trash cans. But at least for now, it seems the hue is here to stay. "[The] desaturated shade is a subtle wink back to... lesser aesthetic times, paired with a sincere confidence that we're doing it better now," one writer claimed. {The Cut}

Some critics aren't thrilled that Ruby Rose is the face of Urban Decay's Basquiat campaign
The makeup brand debuted imagery from its Basquiat collection last week, and responses have been mixed, largely because the campaign is fronted by model Ruby Rose. While Rose has long admired the late artist (to the point of getting two large tattoos that reference him), some felt that a black painter who focused on portraying black figures in his work would've been more honored by a campaign featuring a black model. In defense of the brand's choice, a representative of the licensing company handling Basquiat's estate said "people would very often try to pigeonhole [Basquiat] and call him a black artist and Jean-Michel would say: 'I'm not a black artist, I'm an artist.'" {The Cut}

The business of designer brands making kids' clothing
Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Versace all have children's lines, and they're not the only designers selling $900+ outfits meant to be worn by people who will outgrow them in three months. Why is this good business? "The rise of social media, particularly Instagram, has seen parents become a lot more conscious about what their children wear," says designer Jenny Slungaard. Plus, adds designer Roksanda Ilincic, there's "a different perception buying for your daughter – you would indulge her much more than you would yourself." {The Guardian}

Dion Lee will open Sydney Fashion Week
Though the Australian designer has been showing at New York Fashion Week in recent seasons, his eponymous line will open Sydney Fashion Week this May as the "Mercedes-Benz Presents" designer. To be granted the opening show is a great honor, and Lee acknowledged it as such. "It's great that Mercedes-Benz Australia has been able to support one designer each year in a show that really does help to define a designer's vision and
amplify that globally," he said in a release. {Fashionista inbox}
