These are the stories making headlines in fashion on Tuesday.

Renée Zellweger covers 'InStyle'
Following a six-year acting hiatus, Renée Zellweger is making a powerful comeback, and posing for the December cover of InStyle. In the accompanying interview, the "Bridget Jones" actress talks playing Judy Garland in the new and already-praised "Judy" biopic, aging in the Hollywood eye and some of her most iconic roles. {InStyle}

Teenagers are receiving predatory messages on Depop
Depop, a peer-to-peer shopping platform, allows young fashion lovers to buy and sell clothing from their very own closets. The easily accessible app has also given predators a platform to send invasive and sexual messages to teenagers, such as asking for nude photos, personal information or wearing clothes before the predator purchases them. {Business of Fashion}

Vaping crisis could impact CBD market
While CBD has not been linked to the e-cigarette health crisis directly, the emergency could diminish consumer confidence in cannabis products, including CBD beauty and wellness items. Reports have suggested that vitamin E acetate may be the hazardous ingredient, and it's believed to be commonly used as an additive these products. {Beauty Independent}

Retailers should close stores to gain sales
With Forever 21 planning to close as many as 178 out of its 541 U.S. stores in the wake of its bankruptcy, other major retailers could similarly benefit from downsizing brick-and-mortar locations and instead focusing on their e-commerce platforms. Madewell is looking to expand from its 130 stores, while experts say that 150 is the magic number. {Retail Dive}

'VSCO girls' are throwing off makeup sales
The rise of the "VSCO girl" aesthetic popular among teens is dragging down makeup sales and driving up skincare sales. The VSCO girl, often seen wearing oversized T-shirts, Birkenstocks, scrunchies and a reusable water bottle, favors the less-is-more makeup aesthetic, leading to a 21% drop in cosmetic spending among female teens. {Fortune}
