Givenchy's Pre-Fall 2018 campaign boasts a quintet of chic millennials 
Givenchy's Pre-Fall 2018 campaign video dropped on Friday, and it features a group of five Givenchy-clad 20-somethings playing cards, drinking out of fine crystal glassware and using fresh flowers as bookmarks – a true exhibition of refined millennials. Filmed at a country manor in Kent, the clip, which you can watch above, showcases Clare Waight Keller's second collection for Givenchy, which is filled with color-blocking, zigzagging patterns and high-volume shapes. {Dazed}

J.W. Anderson collaborated with Converse on a line of glittery high-tops
Earlier in 2017, we witnessed Jonathan Anderson highlight his Irish roots in a tartan-filled fall capsule with Uniqlo, but for an upcoming collaboration with Converse, the J.W. Anderson designer sought inspiration from deep within. "The collection for me feels more like an intimate portrayal of myself," he told British Vogue. "It's the tactility of it. It's a self-portrait of what I'm into and what I wear." And what does this designer want to wear on his feet? Glittery, multi-colored high-tops. {British Vogue}

Eighteen-year-old singer and YouTube sensation Madison Beer tackles a gymnastics-inspired horizontal bar routine on day eight of Love Advent.

Is Yeezy's new bundling method a ploy to outsmart the resale market?
The second a hyped sneaker (like Kanye West's Yeezys) drop, a swarm of aggressive buyers instantly purchase, only to resell the shoes for eight times the original price on sites like Grailed and eBay. But for West's latest drop, the sneakers were only available to purchase in a bundle along with some apparel, which presumably captures some of that aftermarket revenue in the process. Therefore, was this a purposeful attempt for West to get some money that is generated on the resale market? {GQ}

Beauty brands work to create authentic shopping experiences for millennials and Generation Z consumers
Social media allows us to see the world through a filtered lens – one that is overgrown with self-editing and body-correcting. So, when it comes to buying beauty products, millennials and Generation Z consumers are looking for something real. "Through all of this technology and change, we see a consumer craving to bring humanity back into this increasingly impersonal world and shopping experience," said QVC chief executive officer Mike George to WWD. As such, beauty brands are having to find creative ways to highlight their commitment to authenticity. {WWD}

People are not pleased with how this company chose to advertise its plus-size tights
Online retailer Wish, which sells Chinese clothing to American consumers at deep discounts, is drawing criticism for how it chose to depict plus-size tights in advertisements and on its website. For some reason, the company put straight-size models in the tights, stretching them over the length of their torsos and arms. In another image, a model stands with both of her legs placed in one leg of the tights. When Twitter users caught wind of this, they were (rightfully) appalled. {People}
