These are the stories making headlines in fashion on Tuesday.

Nonprofit uses suits to change lives
An interview outfit is more important than you think; we subconsciously draw parallels between one's attention to detail in an outfit and one's attention to detail in work. That's why Career Gear, which is a nonprofit organization, decided to help formally incarcerated, unemployed and homeless men get jobs and get their lives back on track through the power of a premium suit. The New York-based organization was founded in 1999 and equips the aforementioned men with expertly tailored and styled suits, as well as interview and personal finance workshops and one-on-one mentorships to provide these men with opportunities that they were somehow stripped of along the way. {GQ}

Allure of backstage beauty fades 
Backstage beauty was once a privilege, reserved for a select few members of the beauty press. But as social media has boldly stepped in and stripped away all secrets and moments of backstage intimacy, it has become less exclusive and special. In addition, going backstage has become more of a chore as hordes of influencers and bloggers push for selfies and snapchat opportunities, forcing editors to wrestle with crowds to get a coveted Pat McGrath quote. {Business of Fashion}

Steve Harvey's stunning daughter on her growing modeling career
Steve Harvey's daughter Lori Harvey is an unlikely model: she has an athletic build and stands tall at 5 foot, 3 inches. Nevertheless, the 20 year-old has become a Dolce & Gabbana fixture — starring on both the latest Italian label's runway and campaign. In this piece for "BET," Danielle Prescod gets up close and personal with the burgeoning, newly engaged model. {BET}

How hip-hop artists have upped their involvement in the sneaker industry
The musician-sneaker phenomenon may have started back in 1986 with Run-DMC's Adidas Superstar style, but the true gods of sneaker collabs are Kanye West and Pharrell Williams. Both artists set the precedent for later musician-brand partnerships  by deciding to take greater creative reigns on the design process, thus infusing collections with their unique personalities and giving the products a distinct appeal. Now, numerous hip-hop stars — Rihanna, Tyler, The Creator, The Weekend — all build hype-worthy collaborations, making the act of partnering with a brand on a signature item a milestone in their careers. {Billboard}

Kaia Gerber reflects on her first NYFW at Dave & Buster's
On Monday night, Kaia Gerber traded the Fenty Puma and Calvin Klein catwalks for Dave & Buster's. Cindy Crawford's offspring wasn't there to play arcade games; instead, the leggy 16-year-old was in the Times Square hotspot celebrating Paper Magazine's "Beautiful People Party" and rehashing her first NYFW with the magazine's cover star Jordan Barrett. Gerber told Barrett that she had a week filled with special family time — her mother was the OG supermodel after all — and a lot of "cool" moments. And if you're wondering what's up next for the newly birthed supermodel, she's just "playing it day by day." {WWD}
