Kacey Musgraves launches "Slow Burn" candle with Boy Smells
Kacey Musgraves may be a four-time Grammy-winning country superstar, but her reach has stretched beyond the world of music.

Named after one of her most beloved records, the limited-edition Slow Burn candle is "a bright, but smokey incense-driven accord that encourages being present in the moment and noticing the vibration that exists in stillness." {Fashionista Inbox}

Model Alliance sends another open letter to Victoria's Secret to join Respect Program
Days after the New York Times released a report detailing a culture of misogyny, bullying and harassment at Victoria's Secret, the Model Alliance has sent an open letter to John Mehas, the brand's CEO, urging it to join its Respect Program. "In the face of the horrifying revelations from the past year, this response is utterly unacceptable," it reads. "The time for listening is long past; it's time for Victoria's Secret to take action to protect the people they profit from. Human rights violations can't be stopped with a corporate rebranding exercise." An anonymous source told WWD that the brand is considering a response to the Model Alliance. {WWD}
